    A Turban'd Man ! The owner of the skies !
    I hear his footfalls in the garden of my heart, my life throbs in his lotus feet !
    Eternal are his Turban Folds of Love !
    The planets wait as birds in nests as at close of night, for the Dawn that breaks above them.
    He is the king of Creation's heart; he wears the crown of love-grown cotton and love-spun thread and love-woven cloth.
    His crown is made of the rolling Waves of the Sea of Light !
    Has not the Sun dropped from those Turban Folds ?
    The stars were scattered abroad at night in the sky,
    Above them I saw the Edge of his Crown of Mists !
    The beaming Faces said, "Tis Mid-night Moon," But I, of lower rank than they, at night, while digging earth, murmured slowly to myself within, lest someone heard my word: It is the light from his Turbanned Brow .

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!
