    Salok (Core theme of eight sabads/hymns in the Astpadi)
    ਉਰਿ ਧਾਰੈ ਜੋ ਅੰਤਰਿ ਨਾਮੁ ਸਰਬ ਮੈ ਪੇਖੈ ਭਗਵਾਨੁ
    Ur ḏẖārai jo anṯar nām. Sarab mai pekẖai bẖagvān.
    One who keeps self heart always aware of the creator. Sees the creator embedded in all.
    ਨਿਮਖ ਨਿਮਖ ਠਾਕੁਰ ਨਮਸਕਾਰੈ ਨਾਨਕ ਓਹੁ ਅਪਰਸੁ ਸਗਲ ਨਿਸਤਾਰੈ ੧॥
    Nimakẖ nimakẖ ṯẖākur namaskārai. Nānak oh apras sagal nisṯārai. ||1||
    One thankful to the creator with every blinking moment. Such beyond reproach helps all to salvation.

    Eight stanzas hymn.

    ਸੋ ਪੰਡਿਤੁ ਜੋ ਮਨੁ ਪਰਬੋਧੈ ਰਾਮ ਨਾਮੁ ਆਤਮ ਮਹਿ ਸੋਧੈ
    So pandiṯ jo man parboḏẖai. Rām nām āṯam mėh soḏẖai.
    Such is true Pandit who enlightens own mind. Seeks out the creator’s understanding in mind.

    ਰਾਮ ਨਾਮ ਸਾਰੁ ਰਸੁ ਪੀਵੈ ਉਸੁ ਪੰਡਿਤ ਕੈ ਉਪਦੇਸਿ ਜਗੁ ਜੀਵੈ
    Rām nām sār ras pīvai. Us pandiṯ kai upḏes jag jīvai.
    One who tastes the sweetness of creator’s understanding. Such Pandit’s teachings sustain world’s living.

    ਹਰਿ ਕੀ ਕਥਾ ਹਿਰਦੈ ਬਸਾਵੈ ਸੋ ਪੰਡਿਤੁ ਫਿਰਿ ਜੋਨਿ ਆਵੈ
    Har kī kathā hirḏai basāvai. So pandiṯ fir jon na āvai.
    Keeps enunciation of the creator in the heart. Such Pandit does not go through birth life cycles.

    ਬੇਦ ਪੁਰਾਨ ਸਿਮ੍ਰਿਤਿ ਬੂਝੈ ਮੂਲ ਸੂਖਮ ਮਹਿ ਜਾਨੈ ਅਸਥੂਲੁ
    Beḏ purān simriṯ būjẖai mūl. Sūkẖam mėh jānai asthūl.
    Understanding of the essence of the vedic religious scriptures. Understanding that all visible universe is creation of the invisible.

    ਚਹੁ ਵਰਨਾ ਕਉ ਦੇ ਉਪਦੇਸੁ ਨਾਨਕ ਉਸੁ ਪੰਡਿਤ ਕਉ ਸਦਾ ਅਦੇਸੁ ੪॥
    Cẖahu varnā ka▫o ḏe upḏes. Nānak us pandiṯ ka▫o saḏā aḏes. ||4||
    One such who teaches all four classes. Nanak forever bows to such Pandit.
    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!
