    Please post your views on the following passage which I have recieved in the Hukamnama quite sometimes back. It always inspired me whenever I felt let down by circumstances or people around me. But now I have read this translation of this Shabad at one of the sites & got confused about the word "She" used in the translation which I need to understand. Anyone who could evaluate it further.

    Please forgive my stupidity....but does 'She' refer to Maya?

    Sri Akaal Sahai
Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
