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

    ਜੀਅ ਜੰਤ ਕੇ ਠਾਕੁਰਾ ਆਪੇ ਵਰਤਣਹਾਰ ਨਾਨਕ ਏਕੋ ਪਸਰਿਆ ਦੂਜਾ ਕਹ ਦ੍ਰਿਸਟਾਰ ੧॥
    Jī▫a janṯ ke ṯẖākurā āpe varṯanhār. Nānak eko pasri▫ā ḏūjā kah ḏaristār. ||1||
    Master of the living and life, by self so interacting everywhere. Nanak, only one so present, where has second been seen!

    Eight stanzas hymn

    ਜਨੁ ਲਾਗਾ ਹਰਿ ਏਕੈ ਨਾਇ ਤਿਸ ਕੀ ਆਸ ਬਿਰਥੀ ਜਾਇ
    Jan lāgā har ekai nā▫e. Ŧis kī ās na birthī jā▫e.
    Humble so attached to creator’s understanding. Expectations of such never go unfulfilled.

    ਸੇਵਕ ਕਉ ਸੇਵਾ ਬਨਿ ਆਈ ਹੁਕਮੁ ਬੂਝਿ ਪਰਮ ਪਦੁ ਪਾਈ
    Sevak ka▫o sevā ban ā▫ī. Hukam būjẖ param paḏ pā▫ī.
    Humble servant so fit to serve humbly. Cognizance of creator’s intentions, highest status achieved.

    ਇਸ ਤੇ ਊਪਰਿ ਨਹੀ ਬੀਚਾਰੁ ਜਾ ਕੈ ਮਨਿ ਬਸਿਆ ਨਿਰੰਕਾਰੁ
    Is ṯe ūpar nahī bīcẖār. Jā kai man basi▫ā nirankār.
    No study comes higher than this. In mind’s of such resides the formless creator.

    ਬੰਧਨ ਤੋਰਿ ਭਏ ਨਿਰਵੈਰ ਅਨਦਿਨੁ ਪੂਜਹਿ ਗੁਰ ਕੇ ਪੈਰ
    Banḏẖan ṯor bẖa▫e nirvair. An▫ḏin pūjėh gur ke pair.
    Breaking the bonds, so become free of animosity. So dwell at creator’s feet everyday.

    ਇਹ ਲੋਕ ਸੁਖੀਏ ਪਰਲੋਕ ਸੁਹੇਲੇ ਨਾਨਕ ਹਰਿ ਪ੍ਰਭਿ ਆਪਹਿ ਮੇਲੇ ੪॥
    Ih lok sukẖī▫e parlok suhele. Nānak har parabẖ āpėh mele. ||4||
    Such comfortable here and happy hereafter. Nanak, supreme creator has so enjoins with 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!
