    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

    ਸਹਸ ਖਟੇ ਲਖ ਕਉ ਉਠਿ ਧਾਵੈ ਤ੍ਰਿਪਤਿ ਆਵੈ ਮਾਇਆ ਪਾਛੈ ਪਾਵੈ
    Sahas kẖate lakẖ ka▫o uṯẖ ḏẖāvai. Ŧaripaṯ na āvai mā▫i▫ā pācẖẖai pāvai.
    Making hundreds gets up and runs for hundred of thousand. Contentment does not come from accumulating wealth.

    ਅਨਿਕ ਭੋਗ ਬਿਖਿਆ ਕੇ ਕਰੈ ਨਹ ਤ੍ਰਿਪਤਾਵੈ ਖਪਿ ਖਪਿ ਮਰੈ
    Anik bẖog bikẖi▫ā ke karai. Nah ṯaripṯāvai kẖap kẖap marai.
    Many a pleasures experienced in wealth. Contentment does not come and dies in repeated discontentment.

    ਬਿਨਾ ਸੰਤੋਖ ਨਹੀ ਕੋਊ ਰਾਜੈ ਸੁਪਨ ਮਨੋਰਥ ਬ੍ਰਿਥੇ ਸਭ ਕਾਜੈ
    Binā sanṯokẖ nahī ko▫ū rājai. Supan manorath barithe sabẖ kājai.
    Without contentment none is satisfied. Like chasing dreams, all so done are useless.

    ਨਾਮ ਰੰਗਿ ਸਰਬ ਸੁਖੁ ਹੋਇ ਬਡਭਾਗੀ ਕਿਸੈ ਪਰਾਪਤਿ ਹੋਇ
    Nām rang sarab sukẖ ho▫e. Badbẖāgī kisai parāpaṯ ho▫e.
    In creator’s understanding all comfort is found. Such is found by some so fortunate.

    ਕਰਨ ਕਰਾਵਨ ਆਪੇ ਆਪਿ ਸਦਾ ਸਦਾ ਨਾਨਕ ਹਰਿ ਜਾਪਿ ੫॥
    Karan karāvan āpe āp. Saḏā saḏā Nānak har jāp. ||5||
    One such is the one to direct or do by self. Nanak always and forever so contemplate the creator.
    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!
