    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 ਹੋਵਤ ਪ੍ਰਭ ਕੇਵਲ ਧਨੀ ਤਬ ਬੰਧ ਮੁਕਤਿ ਕਹੁ ਕਿਸ ਕਉ ਗਨੀ
    Jab hovaṯ parabẖ keval ḏẖanī. Ŧab banḏẖ mukaṯ kaho kis ka▫o ganī.
    When the creator was the only owner. Then who could have been free or caught in entanglements.

    ਜਬ ਏਕਹਿ ਹਰਿ ਅਗਮ ਅਪਾਰ ਤਬ ਨਰਕ ਸੁਰਗ ਕਹੁ ਕਉਨ ਅਉਤਾਰ
    Jab ekėh har agam apār. Ŧab narak surag kaho ka▫un a▫uṯār.
    When such was unapproachable and without ends. Then say who would have entered hell or heaven.

    ਜਬ ਨਿਰਗੁਨ ਪ੍ਰਭ ਸਹਜ ਸੁਭਾਇ ਤਬ ਸਿਵ ਸਕਤਿ ਕਹਹੁ ਕਿਤੁ ਠਾਇ
    Jab nirgun parabẖ sahj subẖā▫e. Ŧab siv sakaṯ kahhu kiṯ ṯẖā▫e.
    When the unattached creator in tranquil disposition. Then say where was life and the worldly attachments.

    ਜਬ ਆਪਹਿ ਆਪਿ ਅਪਨੀ ਜੋਤਿ ਧਰੈ ਤਬ ਕਵਨ ਨਿਡਰੁ ਕਵਨ ਕਤ ਡਰੈ
    Jab āpėh āp apnī joṯ ḏẖarai. Ŧab kavan nidar kavan kaṯ darai.
    When by self and in self was the light of self. Then who was fearless and who was fearful of who.

    ਆਪਨ ਚਲਿਤ ਆਪਿ ਕਰਨੈਹਾਰ ਨਾਨਕ ਠਾਕੁਰ ਅਗਮ ਅਪਾਰ ੨॥
    Āpan cẖaliṯ āp karnaihār. Nānak ṯẖākur agam apār. ||2||
    Own plays and by self the performer. Nanak creator is unapproachable and without limits.
    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!
