    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

    ਅਬਿਨਾਸੀ ਸੁਖ ਆਪਨ ਆਸਨ ਤਹ ਜਨਮ ਮਰਨ ਕਹੁ ਕਹਾ ਬਿਨਾਸਨ
    Abẖināsī sukẖ āpan āsan. Ŧah janam maran kaho kahā bināsan.
    Eternal one sitting in own comfortable pose. Then say where was birth, death and destruction.

    ਜਬ ਪੂਰਨ ਕਰਤਾ ਪ੍ਰਭੁ ਸੋਇ ਤਬ ਜਮ ਕੀ ਤ੍ਰਾਸ ਕਹਹੁ ਕਿਸੁ ਹੋਇ
    Jab pūran karṯā parabẖ so▫e. Ŧab jam kī ṯarās kahhu kis ho▫e.
    When the complete architect was the creator by self. Then say who would have been afraid of demon of death.

    ਜਬ ਅਬਿਗਤ ਅਗੋਚਰ ਪ੍ਰਭ ਏਕਾ ਤਬ ਚਿਤ੍ਰ ਗੁਪਤ ਕਿਸੁ ਪੂਛਤ ਲੇਖਾ
    Jab abigaṯ agocẖar parabẖ ekā. Ŧab cẖiṯar gupaṯ kis pūcẖẖaṯ lekẖā.
    When creator was unapproachable and not visible. Then who questioned and wrote the chronology of deeds.

    ਜਬ ਨਾਥ ਨਿਰੰਜਨ ਅਗੋਚਰ ਅਗਾਧੇ ਤਬ ਕਉਨ ਛੁਟੇ ਕਉਨ ਬੰਧਨ ਬਾਧੇ
    Jab nāth niranjan agocẖar agāḏẖe. Ŧab ka▫un cẖẖute ka▫un banḏẖan bāḏẖe.
    When self without worldly attachments, unapproachable and without limits. Then who was freed and who was tied to entanglements.

    ਆਪਨ ਆਪ ਆਪ ਹੀ ਅਚਰਜਾ ਨਾਨਕ ਆਪਨ ਰੂਪ ਆਪ ਹੀ ਉਪਰਜਾ ੩॥
    Āpan āp āp hī acẖarjā. Nānak āpan rūp āp hī uparjā. ||3||
    By self and of self is wondrous. Nanak such has created own form by self.
    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!
