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

    ਰੂਪੁ ਰੇਖ ਰੰਗੁ ਕਿਛੁ ਤ੍ਰਿਹੁ ਗੁਣ ਤੇ ਪ੍ਰਭ ਭਿੰਨ ਤਿਸਹਿ ਬੁਝਾਏ ਨਾਨਕਾ ਜਿਸੁ ਹੋਵੈ ਸੁਪ੍ਰਸੰਨ ੧॥
    Rūp na rekẖ na rang kicẖẖ ṯarihu guṇ ṯe parabẖ bẖinn. Ŧisėh bujẖā▫e nānkā jis hovai suparsan. ||1||
    Creator is devoid of three in form, shape and color. Nanak only such are provided understanding, whom such is pleased with.

    Eight stanzas hymn

    ਜਾ ਕੀ ਲੀਲਾ ਕੀ ਮਿਤਿ ਨਾਹਿ ਸਗਲ ਦੇਵ ਹਾਰੇ ਅਵਗਾਹਿ
    Jā kī līlā kī miṯ nāhi. Sagal ḏev hāre avgāhi.
    No limit to the worldly game. Deities of the universe have given up searching.

    ਪਿਤਾ ਕਾ ਜਨਮੁ ਕਿ ਜਾਨੈ ਪੂਤੁ ਸਗਲ ਪਰੋਈ ਅਪੁਨੈ ਸੂਤਿ
    Piṯā kā janam kė jānai pūṯ. Sagal paro▫ī apunai sūṯ.
    What can a son know about father’s birth. All is strung on own thread.

    ਸੁਮਤਿ ਗਿਆਨੁ ਧਿਆਨੁ ਜਿਨ ਦੇਇ ਜਨ ਦਾਸ ਨਾਮੁ ਧਿਆਵਹਿ ਸੇਇ
    Sumaṯ gi▫ān ḏẖi▫ān jin ḏe▫e. Jan ḏās nām ḏẖi▫āvahi se▫e.
    Ones given higher intelligence, contemplative cognizance and concentration. Humble servants seek understanding of such.

    ਤਿਹੁ ਗੁਣ ਮਹਿ ਜਾ ਕਉ ਭਰਮਾਏ ਜਨਮਿ ਮਰੈ ਫਿਰਿ ਆਵੈ ਜਾਏ
    Ŧihu guṇ mėh jā ka▫o bẖarmā▫e. Janam marai fir āvai jā▫e.
    Such are tempted into three qualities. Born and dead and do so come and go.

    ਊਚ ਨੀਚ ਤਿਸ ਕੇ ਅਸਥਾਨ ਜੈਸਾ ਜਨਾਵੈ ਤੈਸਾ ਨਾਨਕ ਜਾਨ ੩॥
    Ūcẖ nīcẖ ṯis ke asthān. Jaisā janāvai ṯaisā Nānak jān. ||3||
    High and low places belong to such. Nanak, how such imbues wisdom so one understands.
    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!
