Parupkaar (Gurmukhi ਪਰਉਪਕਾਰੁ) is a word which is based on two roots - Pariya (Gurmukhi ਪਰਾਇਆ) which refers to a stranger, alien, foreign entity and oopkar (Gurmukhi ਉਪਕਾਰੁ) which means to do good, be generous; to do the right thing.

So the word "Parupkaar" means to do good to a stranger; to be generous to a foreign entity; to be nice to someone who you do not know.


ਜੀਅ ਜੰਤ ਸਭਿ ਸੁਖਿ ਬਸੇ ਸਭ ਕੈ ਮਨਿ ਲੋਚ ॥ ਪਰਉਪਕਾਰੁ ਨਿਤ ਚਿਤਵਤੇ ਨਾਹੀ ਕਛੁ ਪੋਚ ॥੨॥
Jī▫a janṯ sabẖ sukẖ base sabẖ kai man locẖ. Par▫upkār niṯ cẖiṯvaṯe nāhī kacẖẖ pocẖ. (2)
All beings and creatures dwell in peace; the minds of all yearn for the Lord.

Those who continually remember the Lord, do good deeds for others; they harbor no ill will towards anyone. (2)

ਪ੍ਰਭ ਕਉ ਸਿਮਰਹਿ ਸੇ ਪਰਉਪਕਾਰੀ ॥
Parabẖ ka▫o simrahi se par▫upkārī.
Those who remember God generously help others.
