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

    ਸੁਖੀ ਬਸੈ ਮਸਕੀਨੀਆ ਆਪੁ ਨਿਵਾਰਿ ਤਲੇ ਬਡੇ ਬਡੇ ਅਹੰਕਾਰੀਆ ਨਾਨਕ ਗਰਬਿ ਗਲੇ ੧॥
    Sukẖī basai maskīnī▫ā āp nivār ṯale. Bade bade ahaʼnkārī▫ā Nānak garab gale. ||1||
    The mild mannered live in comfort acting selfless and low. Nanak many bigger than big ego centric, rot in egotism.

    Eight stanzas hymn

    ਜਿਸ ਕੈ ਅੰਤਰਿ ਰਾਜ ਅਭਿਮਾਨੁ ਸੋ ਨਰਕਪਾਤੀ ਹੋਵਤ ਸੁਆਨੁ
    Jis kai anṯar rāj abẖimān. So narakpāṯī hovaṯ su▫ān.
    One who has the pride of ruling inside. Such hell bound is like a dog.

    ਜੋ ਜਾਨੈ ਮੈ ਜੋਬਨਵੰਤੁ ਸੋ ਹੋਵਤ ਬਿਸਟਾ ਕਾ ਜੰਤੁ
    Jo jānai mai jobanvanṯ. So hovaṯ bistā kā janṯ.
    One who believes in much self beauty. Such is like a worm in manure.

    ਆਪਸ ਕਉ ਕਰਮਵੰਤੁ ਕਹਾਵੈ ਜਨਮਿ ਮਰੈ ਬਹੁ ਜੋਨਿ ਭ੍ਰਮਾਵੈ
    Āpas ka▫o karamvanṯ kahāvai. Janam marai baho jon bẖarmāvai.
    Thinking of self to be called a do gooder. Such is caught in great circle of life and death.

    ਧਨ ਭੂਮਿ ਕਾ ਜੋ ਕਰੈ ਗੁਮਾਨੁ ਸੋ ਮੂਰਖੁ ਅੰਧਾ ਅਗਿਆਨੁ
    Ḏẖan bẖūm kā jo karai gumān. So mūrakẖ anḏẖā agi▫ān.
    One who finds pride in wealth and land. Such fool is blind and ignorant.

    ਕਰਿ ਕਿਰਪਾ ਜਿਸ ਕੈ ਹਿਰਦੈ ਗਰੀਬੀ ਬਸਾਵੈ ਨਾਨਕ ਈਹਾ ਮੁਕਤੁ ਆਗੈ ਸੁਖੁ ਪਾਵੈ ੧॥
    Kar kirpā jis kai hirḏai garībī basāvai. Nānak īhā mukaṯ āgai sukẖ pāvai. ||1||
    One so blessed with enshrined humility. Nanak such is liberated here finds comfort hereafter.
    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!
