    ਜਾਲਿ ਮੋਹੁ ਘਸਿ ਮਸੁ ਕਰਿ ਮਤਿ ਕਾਗਦੁ ਕਰਿ ਸਾਰੁ ॥

    jaal mohu ghas mas kar math kaagadh kar saar ||

    Burn emotional attachment, and grind it into ink. Transform your intelligence into the purest of paper.

    ਭਾਉ ਕਲਮ ਕਰਿ ਚਿਤੁ ਲੇਖਾਰੀ ਗੁਰ ਪੁਛਿ ਲਿਖੁ ਬੀਚਾਰੁ ॥

    bhaao kalam kar chith laekhaaree gur pushh likh beechaar ||

    Make the love of the Lord your pen, and let your consciousness be the scribe. Then, seek the Guru's Instructions, and record these deliberations.

    likh naam saalaah likh likh anth n paaraavaar ||1||

    Write the Praises of the Naam, the Name of the Lord; write over and over again that He has no end or limitation. ||1||

    ਬਾਬਾ ਏਹੁ ਲੇਖਾ ਲਿਖਿ ਜਾਣੁ ॥

    baabaa eaehu laekhaa likh jaan ||

    O Baba, write such an account,

    ਜਿਥੈ ਲੇਖਾ ਮੰਗੀਐ ਤਿਥੈ ਹੋਇ ਸਚਾ ਨੀਸਾਣੁ ॥੧॥ ਰਹਾਉ ॥

    jithhai laekhaa mangeeai thithhai hoe sachaa neesaan ||1|| rehaao ||

    that when it is asked for, it will bring the Mark of Truth. ||1||Pause||

    ਜਿਥੈ ਮਿਲਹਿ ਵਡਿਆਈਆ ਸਦ ਖੁਸੀਆ ਸਦ ਚਾਉ ॥

    jithhai milehi vaddiaaeeaa sadh khuseeaa sadh chaao ||

    There, where greatness, eternal peace and everlasting joy are bestowed,

    ਤਿਨ ਮੁਖਿ ਟਿਕੇ ਨਿਕਲਹਿ ਜਿਨ ਮਨਿ ਸਚਾ ਨਾਉ ॥

    thin mukh ttikae nikalehi jin man sachaa naao ||

    the faces of those whose minds are attuned to the True Name are anointed with the Mark of Grace.

    ਕਰਮਿ ਮਿਲੈ ਤਾ ਪਾਈਐ ਨਾਹੀ ਗਲੀ ਵਾਉ ਦੁਆਉ ॥੨॥

    karam milai thaa paaeeai naahee galee vaao dhuaao ||2||

    If one receives God's Grace, then such honors are received, and not by mere words. ||2||

    eik aavehi eik jaahi outh rakheeahi naav salaar ||

    Some come, and some arise and depart. They give themselves lofty names.

    Some are born beggars, and some hold vast courts.

    bhai thaerai ddar agalaa khap khap shhijai dhaeh ||

    I am terrified by the Fear of You, God. Bothered and bewildered, my body is wasting away.

    ਨਾਵ ਜਿਨਾ ਸੁਲਤਾਨ ਖਾਨ ਹੋਦੇ ਡਿਠੇ ਖੇਹ ॥

    naav jinaa sulathaan khaan hodhae ddithae khaeh ||

    Those who are known as sultans and emperors shall be reduced to dust in the end.

    O Nanak, arising and departing, all false attachments are cut away. ||4||6||

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!
