    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

    ਰੂਪੁ ਸਤਿ ਜਾ ਕਾ ਸਤਿ ਅਸਥਾਨੁ ਪੁਰਖੁ ਸਤਿ ਕੇਵਲ ਪਰਧਾਨੁ
    Rūp saṯ jā kā saṯ asthān. Purakẖ saṯ keval parḏẖān.
    True persona and true abode. Only the omni-present true one is supreme.

    ਕਰਤੂਤਿ ਸਤਿ ਸਤਿ ਜਾ ਕੀ ਬਾਣੀ ਸਤਿ ਪੁਰਖ ਸਭ ਮਾਹਿ ਸਮਾਣੀ
    Karṯūṯ saṯ saṯ jā kī baṇī. Saṯ purakẖ sabẖ māhi samāṇī.
    Deeds are true and true are the words. The true creator is imbued in all.

    ਸਤਿ ਕਰਮੁ ਜਾ ਕੀ ਰਚਨਾ ਸਤਿ ਮੂਲੁ ਸਤਿ ਸਤਿ ਉਤਪਤਿ
    Saṯ karam jā kī racẖnā saṯ. Mūl saṯ saṯ uṯpaṯ.
    True benevolence and true creation. True origin, true that so originates from such.

    ਸਤਿ ਕਰਣੀ ਨਿਰਮਲ ਨਿਰਮਲੀ ਜਿਸਹਿ ਬੁਝਾਏ ਤਿਸਹਿ ਸਭ ਭਲੀ
    Saṯ karṇī nirmal nirmalī. Jisahi bujẖā▫e ṯisėh sabẖ bẖalī.
    True ways purer than the purest. One who is provided insight, such is all so well.

    ਸਤਿ ਨਾਮੁ ਪ੍ਰਭ ਕਾ ਸੁਖਦਾਈ ਬਿਸ੍ਵਾਸੁ ਸਤਿ ਨਾਨਕ ਗੁਰ ਤੇ ਪਾਈ ੬॥
    Saṯ nām parabẖ kā sukẖ▫ḏā▫ī. Bisvās saṯ Nānak gur ṯe pā▫ī. ||6||
    The ever unchanging realization provides comfort. Nanak such true leaning came from the creator.
    Please note all errors are mine and I stand corrected.

    Sat Sri Akal.

    Perhaps this Shabad gives us the opportunity to pay attention to the word,

    ਸਤਿ / saṯ (Sat-ih)
    In the context of the sabad. Prof. Sahib Singh ji emphasizes “Eternal/indestructible/forever unchanging” while Bhai Manmohan Singh ji and Dr. Sant Singh ji Khalsa emphasize “true/truth”.

    Any comments.

    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!
