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

    ਸਤਿ ਪੁਰਖੁ ਜਿਨਿ ਜਾਨਿਆ ਸਤਿਗੁਰੁ ਤਿਸ ਕਾ ਨਾਉ ਤਿਸ ਕੈ ਸੰਗਿ ਸਿਖੁ ਉਧਰੈ ਨਾਨਕ ਹਰਿ ਗੁਨ ਗਾਉ ੧॥
    Saṯ purakẖ jin jāni▫ā saṯgur ṯis kā nā▫o. Ŧis kai sang sikẖ uḏẖrai Nānak har gun gā▫o. ||1||
    Such who recognized the eternal omni-present one, name of such is the eternal creator. Nanak, in company of those, a learner is saved from ill deeds, so do sing virtues of the creator.

    Eight stanzas hymn

    ਸਫਲ ਦਰਸਨੁ ਪੇਖਤ ਪੁਨੀਤ ਪਰਸਤ ਚਰਨ ਗਤਿ ਨਿਰਮਲ ਰੀਤਿ
    Safal ḏarsan pekẖaṯ punīṯ. Parsaṯ cẖaran gaṯ nirmal rīṯ.
    Visualization is fruitful, the vision purifies. Touching the feet, purified self and living.

    ਭੇਟਤ ਸੰਗਿ ਰਾਮ ਗੁਨ ਰਵੇ ਪਾਰਬ੍ਰਹਮ ਕੀ ਦਰਗਹ ਗਵੇ
    Bẖetaṯ sang rām gun rave. Pārbarahm kī ḏargėh gave.
    In company of the followers, creator’s virtues sung. Supreme creator’s abode is accessible.

    ਸੁਨਿ ਕਰਿ ਬਚਨ ਕਰਨ ਆਘਾਨੇ ਮਨਿ ਸੰਤੋਖੁ ਆਤਮ ਪਤੀਆਨੇ
    Sun kar bacẖan karan āgẖāne. Man sanṯokẖ āṯam paṯī▫āne.
    Listening to discourse, the ears brim in fullness. Mind finds contentment, soul is satiated.

    ਪੂਰਾ ਗੁਰੁ ਅਖ੍ਯ੍ਯਓ ਜਾ ਕਾ ਮੰਤ੍ਰ ਅੰਮ੍ਰਿਤ ਦ੍ਰਿਸਟਿ ਪੇਖੈ ਹੋਇ ਸੰਤ
    Pūrā gur akẖ▫ya▫o jā kā manṯar. Amriṯ ḏarisat pekẖai ho▫e sanṯ.
    Creator is complete and so the teachings of such. Pure glance makes one pious.

    ਗੁਣ ਬਿਅੰਤ ਕੀਮਤਿ ਨਹੀ ਪਾਇ ਨਾਨਕ ਜਿਸੁ ਭਾਵੈ ਤਿਸੁ ਲਏ ਮਿਲਾਇ ੪॥
    Guṇ bi▫anṯ kīmaṯ nahī pā▫e. Nānak jis bẖāvai ṯis la▫e milā▫e. ||4||
    Cannot put value to limitless virtues. Nanak, one so liked gets to meet.
    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!
