NASEEHAT NAMA - Epistle of Admonishment, is not Gurbani. It is an apocryphal composition in verse attributed to Guru Nanak and is said to have been addressed by the Guru to king Croesus (Karoon in Sikh chronicles). The King is advised to be pure, have love of God uppermost in your heart and do not hurt the feelings of His creatures and do good deeds when God has bestowed riches upon him. Money spent in a good cause is money well spent. Money belongs to him who spends it. Everything in this world is transient and none should feel proud of his possessions which are bound to perish. True God alone shall abide forever. Karoon could be a very rich man so named after the historical Croesus, king of Lydia, known for his fabulous wealth.

At the age of seven, Bibi Gurdev Kaur OBE was encouraged by her grandfather to learn "Naseehat Nama" by heart and recite it every night before going to bed along with the bedtimes prayer "Kirtan Sohila". He used to listen from her every night. This upload is her dedication to her late grandfather "Giani Hari Singh Ji" who spent a lot of time on her, teaching recitation of Shudh Gurbani and Shabad Kirtan. "Naseehat Nama" is scribed in Janam Sakhi and used to be printed in the "Gutkas" in those days.
