    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

    ਨਿਰਗੁਨੁ ਆਪਿ ਸਰਗੁਨੁ ਭੀ ਓਹੀ ਕਲਾ ਧਾਰਿ ਜਿਨਿ ਸਗਲੀ ਮੋਹੀ
    Nirgun āp sargun bẖī ohī. Kalā ḏẖār jin saglī mohī.
    By self without entanglements of worldly possessions, also with worldly possessions. Having established the power, such got the whole world so attracted.

    ਅਪਨੇ ਚਰਿਤ ਪ੍ਰਭਿ ਆਪਿ ਬਨਾਏ ਅਪੁਨੀ ਕੀਮਤਿ ਆਪੇ ਪਾਏ
    Apne cẖariṯ parabẖ āp banā▫e. Apunī kīmaṯ āpe pā▫e.
    Creator created manifestations of self by self. Has done valuation of self by self.

    ਹਰਿ ਬਿਨੁ ਦੂਜਾ ਨਾਹੀ ਕੋਇ ਸਰਬ ਨਿਰੰਤਰਿ ਏਕੋ ਸੋਇ
    Har bin ḏūjā nāhī ko▫e. Sarab niranṯar eko so▫e.
    No one besides the creator. One such imbued in all.

    ਓਤਿ ਪੋਤਿ ਰਵਿਆ ਰੂਪ ਰੰਗ ਭਏ ਪ੍ਰਗਾਸ ਸਾਧ ਕੈ ਸੰਗ
    Oṯ poṯ ravi▫ā rūp rang. Bẖa▫e pargās sāḏẖ kai sang.
    Present in all forms like thread and cloth. Such enlightenment comes in the company of the pious.

    ਰਚਿ ਰਚਨਾ ਅਪਨੀ ਕਲ ਧਾਰੀ ਅਨਿਕ ਬਾਰ ਨਾਨਕ ਬਲਿਹਾਰੀ ੮॥੧੮॥
    Racẖ racẖnā apnī kal ḏẖārī. Anik bār Nānak balihārī. ||8||18||
    Creating creation embedded self creativity. Nanak, in adoration many times over.
    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!
