    ਸਲੋਕੁ
    Salok.
    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.

    ਅਸਟਪਦੀ
    Asatpaḏī.
    Eight stanzas hymn.

    ਪ੍ਰਭ ਕੀ ਆਗਿਆ ਆਤਮ ਹਿਤਾਵੈ ਜੀਵਨ ਮੁਕਤਿ ਸੋਊ ਕਹਾਵੈ
    Parabẖ kī āgi▫ā āṯam hiṯāvai. Jīvan mukaṯ so▫ū kahāvai.
    Following the direction of the creator with love. Such is the liberated life.

    ਤੈਸਾ ਹਰਖੁ ਤੈਸਾ ਉਸੁ ਸੋਗੁ ਸਦਾ ਅਨੰਦੁ ਤਹ ਨਹੀ ਬਿਓਗੁ
    Ŧaisā harakẖ ṯaisā us sog. Saḏā anand ṯah nahī bi▫og.
    Happiness and sorrow are alike. Such is always in bliss and never separated.

    ਤੈਸਾ ਸੁਵਰਨੁ ਤੈਸੀ ਉਸੁ ਮਾਟੀ ਤੈਸਾ ਅੰਮ੍ਰਿਤੁ ਤੈਸੀ ਬਿਖੁ ਖਾਟੀ
    Ŧaisā suvran ṯaisī us mātī. Ŧaisā amriṯ ṯaisī bikẖ kẖātī.
    Such sees gold and dirt as the same. Sweet or bitter are same to such.

    ਤੈਸਾ ਮਾਨੁ ਤੈਸਾ ਅਭਿਮਾਨੁ ਤੈਸਾ ਰੰਕੁ ਤੈਸਾ ਰਾਜਾਨੁ
    Ŧaisā mān ṯaisā abẖimān. Ŧaisā rank ṯaisā rājān.
    Honor or dishonor are the same. Poverty or kingdom are the same to such.

    ਜੋ ਵਰਤਾਏ ਸਾਈ ਜੁਗਤਿ ਨਾਨਕ ਓਹੁ ਪੁਰਖੁ ਕਹੀਐ ਜੀਵਨ ਮੁਕਤਿ ੭॥
    Jo varṯā▫e sā▫ī jugaṯ. Nānak oh purakẖ kahī▫ai jīvan mukaṯ. ||7||
    Accepts as it as so served on a path. Nanak such person is liberated from life.
    Please note all errors are mine and I stand corrected.

    Sat Sri Akal.

    the living death does not sound as bad as I used to think, I always thought it was a complete death, but it is more of a liberating death, you are not dead, you just see things differently, you see things as per Hukam, beautiful

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!
