    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

    ਜਹ ਅਬਿਗਤੁ ਭਗਤੁ ਤਹ ਆਪਿ ਜਹ ਪਸਰੈ ਪਾਸਾਰੁ ਸੰਤ ਪਰਤਾਪਿ
    Jah abigaṯ bẖagaṯ ṯah āp. Jah pasrai pāsār sanṯ parṯāp.
    Where the unseen creator, but with the pious learner self is. Where such spreads out the world, such is spread to increase the fame of the pious.

    ਦੁਹੂ ਪਾਖ ਕਾ ਆਪਹਿ ਧਨੀ ਉਨ ਕੀ ਸੋਭਾ ਉਨਹੂ ਬਨੀ
    Ḏuhū pākẖ kā āpėh ḏẖanī. Un kī sobẖā unhū banī.
    Both sides are owned by such. Praise of such, only suitable for such.

    ਆਪਹਿ ਕਉਤਕ ਕਰੈ ਅਨਦ ਚੋਜ ਆਪਹਿ ਰਸ ਭੋਗਨ ਨਿਰਜੋਗ
    Āpėh ka▫uṯak karai anaḏ cẖoj. Āpėh ras bẖogan nirjog.
    Self creates games, enjoys such amusements. Self enjoys the pleasures but unaffected.

    ਜਿਸੁ ਭਾਵੈ ਤਿਸੁ ਆਪਨ ਨਾਇ ਲਾਵੈ ਜਿਸੁ ਭਾਵੈ ਤਿਸੁ ਖੇਲ ਖਿਲਾਵੈ
    Jis bẖāvai ṯis āpan nā▫e lāvai. Jis bẖāvai ṯis kẖel kẖilāvai.
    One so desired, so brings close to self. One so chosen, such plays out the game.

    ਬੇਸੁਮਾਰ ਅਥਾਹ ਅਗਨਤ ਅਤੋਲੈ ਜਿਉ ਬੁਲਾਵਹੁ ਤਿਉ ਨਾਨਕ ਦਾਸ ਬੋਲੈ ੮॥੨੧॥
    Besumār athāh agnaṯ aṯolai. Ji▫o bulāvhu ṯi▫o Nānak ḏās bolai. ||8||21||
    Innumerable, cannot be gauged, indefinable, so unperturbed. Nanak humble servant so speaks, as one causes to speak.
    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!
