    ਬਹੁ ਸਾਸਤ੍ਰ ਬਹੁ ਸਿਮ੍ਰਿਤੀ ਪੇਖੇ ਸਰਬ ਢਢੋਲਿ ਪੂਜਸਿ ਨਾਹੀ ਹਰਿ ਹਰੇ ਨਾਨਕ ਨਾਮ ਅਮੋਲ ੧॥
    Baho sāsṯar baho simriṯī pekẖe sarab dẖadẖol. Pūjas nāhī har hare Nānak nām amol. ||1||

    Many holy books and treatises have been researched. Guru Nanak, nothing comes close to the understanding of the esteemed creator or be so valued.


    Eight stanzas hymn.

    ਨਉ ਖੰਡ ਪ੍ਰਿਥਮੀ ਫਿਰੈ ਚਿਰੁ ਜੀਵੈ ਮਹਾ ਉਦਾਸੁ ਤਪੀਸਰੁ ਥੀਵੈ
    Na▫o kẖand parithmī firai cẖir jīvai. Mahā uḏās ṯapīsar thīvai.

    One may roam around the world and have a very long life. May renounce the world and become a master ascetic

    ਅਗਨਿ ਮਾਹਿ ਹੋਮਤ ਪਰਾਨ ਕਨਿਕ ਅਸ੍ਵ ਹੈਵਰ ਭੂਮਿ ਦਾਨ
    Agan māhi homaṯ parān. Kanik asav haivar bẖūm ḏān.

    May self immolate. Give out gold, horses, even champion horses and land.

    ਨਿਉਲੀ ਕਰਮ ਕਰੈ ਬਹੁ ਆਸਨ ਜੈਨ ਮਾਰਗ ਸੰਜਮ ਅਤਿ ਸਾਧਨ
    Ni▫ulī karam karai baho āsan. Jain mārag sanjam aṯ sāḏẖan.

    Do breathing exercises and many such other postures. Follow the hard self mortifying ways of the Jains.

    ਨਿਮਖ ਨਿਮਖ ਕਰਿ ਸਰੀਰੁ ਕਟਾਵੈ ਤਉ ਭੀ ਹਉਮੈ ਮੈਲੁ ਜਾਵੈ
    Nimakẖ nimakẖ kar sarīr katāvai. Ŧa▫o bẖī ha▫umai mail na jāvai.

    Let the body be sliced into smallest of small slivers. Even then the dirt of ego will not be removed.

    ਹਰਿ ਕੇ ਨਾਮ ਸਮਸਰਿ ਕਛੁ ਨਾਹਿ ਨਾਨਕ ਗੁਰਮੁਖਿ ਨਾਮੁ ਜਪਤ ਗਤਿ ਪਾਹਿ ੨॥
    Har ke nām samsar kacẖẖ nāhi. Nānak gurmukẖ nām japaṯ gaṯ pāhi. ||2||

    There is nothing equaling the creator’s understanding. Guru Nanak, those who study in closeness with the Guru teacher, achieve a higher state of being.

    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!
