Sarbat Da Bhala (Well-Being of Human Race)

Welfare of all; Peace and prosperity for all.

The Sikhs are men of prayer. They believe in goodness of humanity. They wish welfare of humanity as a whole during their prayer normally offered twice a day. They pray for universal peace, prosperity and protection of human beings over this universe.

“God’s glory ever increases; in His Will, Nanak prays for the good of everyone.”
ਨਾਨਕ ਨਾਮ ਚੜ੍ਹਦੀ ਕਲਾ ॥ ਤੇਰੇ ਭਾਣੇ ਸਰਬੱਤ ਦਾ ਭਲਾ ॥
(Ardas-Sikh Prayer)
Bhai Kanhayya serving water

It is how the daily prayer of the Sikhs ends. The Sikhs believe in universal brotherhood and oneness of humanity. They work for welfare of every body irrespective of caste colour and creed like Bhai Kanahya who used to pour water in every body's mouth in the battle field irrespective of the party or religion of the fighting soldier.

Guru Nanak Dev says,

“Within every one is the soul and the soul is God Himself who pervades all and everywhere.”
ਸਭ ਮਹਿ ਜੀਉ ਜੀਉ ਹੈ ਸੋਈ ਘਟਿ ਘਟਿ ਰਹਿਆ ਸਮਾਈ ॥

Guru Nanak Dev further says,

“Let universal brotherhood be the highest aspiration of your religious order.”
ਆਈ ਪੰਥੀ ਸਗਲ ਜਮਾਤੀ ...

Guru Arjan Dev says,

“None is my enemy and I an enemy to none. No one is stranger to me and I am friend of all.”
ਨਾ ਕੋ ਬੈਰੀ ਨਹੀ ਬਿਗਾਨਾ ਸਗਲ ਸੰਗਿ ਹਮ ਕਉ ਬਨਿ ਆਈ ॥

Guru Arjan Dev says,

“I have befriended all and unto everyone, I am a friend.”
ਸਭੁ ਕੋ ਮੀਤੁ ਹਮ ਆਪਨ ਕੀਨਾ ਹਮ ਸਭਨਾ ਕੇ ਸਾਜਨ ॥

The Sikhs pray by saying:

Nanak Nam Charhdi Kala Tere Bhane Sarbat Da Bhala.
Supreme is the Word of God, May God bless every human being.
