    Bilaaval, Ninth Mehl:
    Without the Name of the Lord, you shall only find pain.
    Without devotional worship, doubt is not dispelled; the Guru has revealed this secret. ||1||Pause||
    Of what use are sacred shrines of pilgrimage, if one does not enter the Sanctuary of the Lord?
    Know that Yoga and sacrificial feasts are fruitless, if one forgets the Praises of God. ||1||
    One who lays aside both pride and attachment, sings the Glorious Praises of the Lord of the Universe.
    Says Nanak, the mortal who does this is said to be 'jivan mukta' - liberated while yet alive. ||2||2||


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!
