    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

    ਧਨਵੰਤਾ ਹੋਇ ਕਰਿ ਗਰਬਾਵੈ ਤ੍ਰਿਣ ਸਮਾਨਿ ਕਛੁ ਸੰਗਿ ਜਾਵੈ
    Ḏẖanvanṯā ho▫e kar garbāvai. Ŧariṇ samān kacẖẖ sang na jāvai.
    Being very wealthy and feeling so proud. Not a dried blade of grass will so accompany such.

    ਬਹੁ ਲਸਕਰ ਮਾਨੁਖ ਊਪਰਿ ਕਰੇ ਆਸ ਪਲ ਭੀਤਰਿ ਤਾ ਕਾ ਹੋਇ ਬਿਨਾਸ
    Baho laskar mānukẖ ūpar kare ās. Pal bẖīṯar ṯā kā ho▫e binās.
    Lot of armaments and people one may place hopes on. In a moment such are destroyed.

    ਸਭ ਤੇ ਆਪ ਜਾਨੈ ਬਲਵੰਤੁ ਖਿਨ ਮਹਿ ਹੋਇ ਜਾਇ ਭਸਮੰਤੁ
    Sabẖ ṯe āp jānai balvanṯ. Kẖin mėh ho▫e jā▫e bẖasmanṯ.
    Thinking of self as strongest of all. In an instant such is reduced to ashes.

    ਕਿਸੈ ਬਦੈ ਆਪਿ ਅਹੰਕਾਰੀ ਧਰਮ ਰਾਇ ਤਿਸੁ ਕਰੇ ਖੁਆਰੀ
    Kisai na baḏai āp ahaʼnkārī. Ḏẖaram rā▫e ṯis kare kẖu▫ārī.
    Disregarding all and centric in self ego. The judge of deeds will rebuke strongly.

    ਗੁਰ ਪ੍ਰਸਾਦਿ ਜਾ ਕਾ ਮਿਟੈ ਅਭਿਮਾਨੁ ਸੋ ਜਨੁ ਨਾਨਕ ਦਰਗਹ ਪਰਵਾਨੁ ੨॥
    Gur parsāḏ jā kā mitai abẖimān. So jan Nānak ḏargėh parvān. ||2||
    Through creator’s blessing ego is erased. Nanak such is so accepted in creator’s abode.
    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!
