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

    ਸਰਗੁਨ ਨਿਰਗੁਨ ਨਿਰੰਕਾਰ ਸੁੰਨ ਸਮਾਧੀ ਆਪਿ ਆਪਨ ਕੀਆ ਨਾਨਕਾ ਆਪੇ ਹੀ ਫਿਰਿ ਜਾਪਿ
    Sargun nirgun nirankār sunn samāḏẖī āp. Āpan kī▫ā nānkā āpe hī fir jāp. ||1||
    By self the formless one is with worldly entanglements, without such and by self in voided contemplation. Nanak, so self created and such so seeks understanding.

    Eight stanzas hymn

    ਜਬ ਅਕਾਰੁ ਇਹੁ ਕਛੁ ਦ੍ਰਿਸਟੇਤਾ ਪਾਪ ਪੁੰਨ ਤਬ ਕਹ ਤੇ ਹੋਤਾ
    Jab akār ih kacẖẖ na ḏaristeṯā. Pāp punn ṯab kah ṯe hoṯā.
    When creation took shape, it could not be visualized. Who could have done deeds ill or good.

    ਜਬ ਧਾਰੀ ਆਪਨ ਸੁੰਨ ਸਮਾਧਿ ਤਬ ਬੈਰ ਬਿਰੋਧ ਕਿਸੁ ਸੰਗਿ ਕਮਾਤਿ
    Jab ḏẖārī āpan sunn samāḏẖ. Ŧab bair biroḏẖ kis sang kamāṯ.
    When such was engrossed in void contemplation. Who would one create animosity or opposition to.

    ਜਬ ਇਸ ਕਾ ਬਰਨੁ ਚਿਹਨੁ ਜਾਪਤ ਤਬ ਹਰਖ ਸੋਗ ਕਹੁ ਕਿਸਹਿ ਬਿਆਪਤ
    Jab is kā baran cẖihan na jāpaṯ. Ŧab harakẖ sog kaho kisėh bi▫āpaṯ.
    When there was no shape or trace to be recognized. Who could have then experienced happiness or sorrow.

    ਜਬ ਆਪਨ ਆਪ ਆਪਿ ਪਾਰਬ੍ਰਹਮ ਤਬ ਮੋਹ ਕਹਾ ਕਿਸੁ ਹੋਵਤ ਭਰਮ
    Jab āpan āp āp pārbarahm. Ŧab moh kahā kis hovaṯ bẖaram.
    When of self, self and by self was the supreme creator. Who could have attachment or have doubts.

    ਆਪਨ ਖੇਲੁ ਆਪਿ ਵਰਤੀਜਾ ਨਾਨਕ ਕਰਨੈਹਾਰੁ ਦੂਜਾ ੧॥
    Āpan kẖel āp varṯījā. Nānak karnaihār na ḏūjā. ||1||
    Own game has so self played. Nanak there is no second that could create.
    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!
