    Salok (Core theme of eight sabads/hymns in the Astpadi)

    ਕਰਣ ਕਾਰਣ ਪ੍ਰਭੁ ਏਕੁ ਹੈ ਦੂਸਰ ਨਾਹੀ ਕੋਇ ਨਾਨਕ ਤਿਸੁ ਬਲਿਹਾਰਣੈ ਜਲਿ ਥਲਿ ਮਹੀਅਲਿ ਸੋਇ ੧॥
    Karaṇ kāraṇ parabẖ ek hai ḏūsar nāhī ko▫e. Nānak ṯis balihārṇai jal thal mahī▫al so▫e. ||1||
    Creator of creation and doer is one and there is no second. Nanak so such be exalted for which there is water, land and all above it.

    Eight stanzas hymn

    ਕਰਨ ਕਰਾਵਨ ਕਰਨੈ ਜੋਗੁ ਜੋ ਤਿਸੁ ਭਾਵੈ ਸੋਈ ਹੋਗੁ
    Karan karāvan karnai jog. Jo ṯis bẖāvai so▫ī hog.
    Is able to do and direct to be done. What such wishes, so happens.

    ਖਿਨ ਮਹਿ ਥਾਪਿ ਉਥਾਪਨਹਾਰਾ ਅੰਤੁ ਨਹੀ ਕਿਛੁ ਪਾਰਾਵਾਰਾ
    Kẖin mėh thāp uthāpanhārā. Anṯ nahī kicẖẖ pārāvārā.
    Creating and destroying in the blink of an eye. There are no limits for such.

    ਹੁਕਮੇ ਧਾਰਿ ਅਧਰ ਰਹਾਵੈ ਹੁਕਮੇ ਉਪਜੈ ਹੁਕਮਿ ਸਮਾਵੈ
    Hukme ḏẖār aḏẖar rahāvai. Hukme upjai hukam samāvai.
    Created under direction, existing without support. Under direction created, by order merges.

    ਹੁਕਮੇ ਊਚ ਨੀਚ ਬਿਉਹਾਰ ਹੁਕਮੇ ਅਨਿਕ ਰੰਗ ਪਰਕਾਰ
    Hukme ūcẖ nīcẖ bi▫uhār. Hukme anik rang parkār.
    High and low occupations are per direction. Many varieties of activities per direction created.

    ਕਰਿ ਕਰਿ ਦੇਖੈ ਅਪਨੀ ਵਡਿਆਈ ਨਾਨਕ ਸਭ ਮਹਿ ਰਹਿਆ ਸਮਾਈ ੧॥
    Kar kar ḏekẖai apnī vadi▫ā▫ī. Nānak sabẖ mėh rahi▫ā samā▫ī. ||1||
    Testing the limits of self by creating again and again. Nanak, such is imbued in all.
    Please note all errors are mine and I stand corrected.

    Sat Sri Akal.

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!
