Gristi is a Punjabi word for the 'life of a householder'. Sikhi promotes the adherent to live their life as members of a household and family. A Sikh is expected to play their part in a family unit and as part of a community.

ਗਿਰਹੀ ਮਹਿ ਸਦਾ ਹਰਿ ਜਨ ਉਦਾਸੀ ਗਿਆਨ ਤਤ ਬੀਚਾਰੀ ॥ ਸਤਿਗ੝ਰ੝ ਸੇਵਿ ਸਦਾ ਸ੝ਖ੝ ਪਾਇਆ ਹਰਿ ਰਾਖਿਆ ਉਰ ਧਾਰੀ ॥੨॥
Girhī meh saḝĝ har jan uḝĝsī gi­ĝn ṯaṯ bīcẖĝrī. Saṯgur sėv saḝĝ sukẖ pĝ­i­ĝ har rĝkẖi­ĝ ur ḝẖĝrī. (2)
Immersed in family life, the Lord's humble servant ever remains detached; he reflects upon the essence of spiritual wisdom.

Serving the True Guru, he finds eternal peace, and he keeps the Lord enshrined in his heart. (2)
