In the extreme winter month of Poh, Panjab longs for her love. Her lover replies, “She is his heartbeat.”

It is the month of Poh.
Frost covers the fields.
I long for you.
Where are you?

It is the month of Poh.
Frost covers the Delhi nights.
Resting at the Farmers Protests.
Is where I am.

Beautiful Punjab!
You are here with me.
My every breath is you.
I am here for you.

It is you that is guiding me,
To follow Sikh principles.
It is you that is urging me,
To repeal the Farm Laws.

It is your song that nurtures me.
It is your water that sweetens me.
It is your food that strengthens me.
I am here for you.

My heart beats for you.
My every breath is you.
Will, you wait for me,
My beautiful Panjab!

Dan: Sikhi, Nonprofits & Giving

As the world becomes more interconnected, we understand how some have an abundance of monetary wealth, and others do not, and the more we understand the various needs unaddressed in our backyards and abroad. People want to give. People need to give. But do we understand what it means to give?

O Siblings

Sabad is Infinite; we are finite. This is our understanding at the moment, which was different yesterday and may evolve tomorrow as we deepen our relationship with the Sabad. In this transcreation, we have chosen to keep the repeating words in the Sabad the same. We aspire to learn and retain the Divine attribute used in the original Sabad and avoid terms like God or Lord.
