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

    ਸਾਥਿ ਚਾਲੈ ਬਿਨੁ ਭਜਨ ਬਿਖਿਆ ਸਗਲੀ ਛਾਰੁ ਹਰਿ ਹਰਿ ਨਾਮੁ ਕਮਾਵਨਾ ਨਾਨਕ ਇਹੁ ਧਨੁ ਸਾਰੁ ੧॥
    Sāth na cẖālai bin bẖajan bikẖi▫ā saglī cẖẖār. Har har nām kamāvanā Nānak ih ḏẖan sār. ||1||
    Nothing goes with one except contemplation, all wealth turns to ashes. Creator, creator’s understanding is the only wealth worthy of making.

    Eight stanzas hymn

    ਗੁਰ ਕੀ ਮਤਿ ਤੂੰ ਲੇਹਿ ਇਆਨੇ ਭਗਤਿ ਬਿਨਾ ਬਹੁ ਡੂਬੇ ਸਿਆਨੇ
    Gur kī maṯ ṯūʼn lehi i▫āne. Bẖagaṯ binā baho dūbe si▫āne.
    Grab creator’s wisdom you child. Many wise drowned without contemplation.

    ਹਰਿ ਕੀ ਭਗਤਿ ਕਰਹੁ ਮਨ ਮੀਤ ਨਿਰਮਲ ਹੋਇ ਤੁਮ੍ਹ੍ਹਾਰੋ ਚੀਤ
    Har kī bẖagaṯ karahu man mīṯ. Nirmal ho▫e ṯumĥāro cẖīṯ.
    Dear mind, contemplate upon the creator. Your inner self will so be purified.

    ਚਰਨ ਕਮਲ ਰਾਖਹੁ ਮਨ ਮਾਹਿ ਜਨਮ ਜਨਮ ਕੇ ਕਿਲਬਿਖ ਜਾਹਿ
    Cẖaran kamal rākẖo man māhi. Janam janam ke kilbikẖ jāhi.
    Keep supple feet (of the creator) in your mind. All ill deeds of ages get erased.

    ਆਪਿ ਜਪਹੁ ਅਵਰਾ ਨਾਮੁ ਜਪਾਵਹੁ ਸੁਨਤ ਕਹਤ ਰਹਤ ਗਤਿ ਪਾਵਹੁ
    Āp japahu avrā nām japāvhu. Sunaṯ kahaṯ rahaṯ gaṯ pāvhu.
    Contemplate self and have others contemplate. Hearing, saying and living find higher state.

    ਸਾਰ ਭੂਤ ਸਤਿ ਹਰਿ ਕੋ ਨਾਉ ਸਹਜਿ ਸੁਭਾਇ ਨਾਨਕ ਗੁਨ ਗਾਉ ੬॥
    Sār bẖūṯ saṯ har ko nā▫o. Sahj subẖā▫e Nānak gun gā▫o. ||6||
    Creator’s true name is best of all articles. Nanak, in quiet fortitude sings virtues.
    Note: “ਸਹਜਿ ਸੁਭਾਇ /quiet fortitude is much emphasized in Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji. I hope it is recognized and remembered when ever we are led into shouting or loud renditions of Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji or any Gurbani. Neither our inner self is hard of hearing nor the creator.

    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!
