    Bani Nirankaar tells us that one must obey his Guru.

    Self willed keeps spinning around. They keep increasing their store of sorrows.

    manmukhaa manmukh mu-ay mayree kar maa-i-aa raam.
    The self-willed manmukhs die in their self-willed stubbornness, declaring that the wealth of Maya is theirs.

    khin aavai khin jaavai durganDh marhai chit laa-i-aa raam.
    They attach their consciousness to the foul-smelling pile of filth, which comes for a moment, and departs in an instant.

    laa-i-aa durganDh marhai chit laagaa ji-o rang kasumbh dikhaa-i-aa.
    They attach their consciousness to the foul-smelling pile of filth, which is transitory, like the fading color of the safflower.

    khin poorab khin pachham chhaa-ay ji-o chak kumHi-aar bhavaa-i-aa.
    One moment, they are facing east, and the next instant, they are facing west; they continue spinning around, like the potter's wheel.

    dukh khaaveh dukh saNcheh bhogeh dukh kee biraDh vaDhaa-ee.
    In sorrow, they eat, and in sorrow, they gather things and try to enjoy them, but they only increase their stores of sorrow.

    naanak bikham suhaylaa taree-ai jaa aavai gur sarnaa-ee. ||2||
    O Nanak, one easily crosses over the terrifying world-ocean, when he comes to the Sanctuary of the Guru. ||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!
