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

    ਸੰਤ ਸਰਨਿ ਜੋ ਜਨੁ ਪਰੈ ਸੋ ਜਨੁ ਉਧਰਨਹਾਰ ਸੰਤ ਕੀ ਨਿੰਦਾ ਨਾਨਕਾ ਬਹੁਰਿ ਬਹੁਰਿ ਅਵਤਾਰ ੧॥
    Sanṯ saran jo jan parai so jan uḏẖranhār. Sanṯ kī ninḏā nānkā bahur bahur avṯār. ||1||
    Those who seek humble guidance from the pious, such are saved. Nanak, denigrating the pious encumbers one in repetitive births.

    Eight stanzas hymn

    ਸਭ ਘਟ ਤਿਸ ਕੇ ਓਹੁ ਕਰਨੈਹਾਰੁ ਸਦਾ ਸਦਾ ਤਿਸ ਕਉ ਨਮਸਕਾਰੁ
    Sabẖ gẖat ṯis ke oh karnaihār. Saḏā saḏā ṯis ka▫o namaskār.
    All bodies are of such (creator) only so is able to create. Always and always a respectful bow to such.

    ਪ੍ਰਭ ਕੀ ਉਸਤਤਿ ਕਰਹੁ ਦਿਨੁ ਰਾਤਿ ਤਿਸਹਿ ਧਿਆਵਹੁ ਸਾਸਿ ਗਿਰਾਸਿ
    Parabẖ kī usṯaṯ karahu ḏin rāṯ. Ŧisėh ḏẖi▫āvahu sās girās.
    Recognize the creator’s virtues day and night. Contemplate such with each breath in and out.

    ਸਭੁ ਕਛੁ ਵਰਤੈ ਤਿਸ ਕਾ ਕੀਆ ਜੈਸਾ ਕਰੇ ਤੈਸਾ ਕੋ ਥੀਆ
    Sabẖ kacẖẖ varṯai ṯis kā kī▫ā. Jaisā kare ṯaisā ko thī▫ā.
    All that happens is so directed by such. What such makes, so one becomes.

    ਅਪਨਾ ਖੇਲੁ ਆਪਿ ਕਰਨੈਹਾਰੁ ਦੂਸਰ ਕਉਨੁ ਕਹੈ ਬੀਚਾਰੁ
    Apnā kẖel āp karnaihār. Ḏūsar ka▫un kahai bīcẖār.
    Is the director and player of own play. Who else can so deliberate.

    ਜਿਸ ਨੋ ਕ੍ਰਿਪਾ ਕਰੈ ਤਿਸੁ ਆਪਨ ਨਾਮੁ ਦੇਇ ਬਡਭਾਗੀ ਨਾਨਕ ਜਨ ਸੇਇ ੮॥੧੩॥
    Jis no kirpā karai ṯis āpan nām ḏe▫e. Badbẖāgī Nānak jan se▫e. ||8||13||
    One who is blessed is given such (creator’s) understanding. Nanak, such are the fortunate people.
    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!
