"Status of a true Sikh"

(In the words of Saint Ravidaas in Sri Guru Granth Sahib -Page 345)

Baygumpura, 'the city without sorrow', is the name of the town.
There is no suffering or anxiety there.
There are no troubles or taxes on commodities there.
There is no fear, blemish or downfall there. || 1 ||
Now, I have found this most excellent city.
There is lasting peace and safety there, O Siblings of Destiny. || 1 || Pause ||
God's Kingdom is steady, stable and eternal.
There is no second or third status; all are equal there.
That city is populous and eternally famous.
Those who live there are wealthy and contented. || 2 ||
They stroll about freely, just as they please.
They know the Mansion of the Lord's Presence, and no one blocks their way.
Says Ravi Daas, the emancipated shoe-maker:
whoever is a citizen there, is a friend of mine. || 3 || 2 ||.
