    I surrender myself and place my wealth in front of Him. I have totally renounced my ego.

    Pardon my ignorance swarn jee, guru sahib in this pankti is not referring to 'saint' or God in physical body but in full humility godly virtues.

    Swarn Bains ji great effort from yourself. I know it requires much more effort but if you can possibly give a gist of each shabad in your own words at the end of line by line, it will make your presentation tremendously more glorious.

    For example in the following last pangti;

    For me Guru ji is explaining or teaching that: The question of being born and dying is resolved in the company of pious people. It is simply a continuum in nature for me. Guru ji simply address that in front of such a crowd of pious, he is as worthless as dust at their feet. So just an expression of humbleness and also recognition that even such a difficult question when so answered requires utmost expression of gratification.

    Sat Sri Akal.

    thank u for your comments. i only have so much time and understanding. i cannot go any further. dear sir you have taken the interest and you are a scholar as well. i will be very thankful if you take up this side of the explanation. as they say one alone but two make eleven. i am looking forward to your help. gurbani has no limit. if u join me or anyone else for that matter. gurbani wichar will flourish and will be help to humanity. i will keep putting these stanzas here after reading most of the time. but if u can be kind enough to explain. it will be a great help to all of us.

    Sorry Swarn Bains ji I am not able to do what you suggested at the present time. I was quite engaged and willing to do the same but my circumstances have changed and I am much less engaged in such activities right now.

    Literal translations for me right now just give more words to express thoughts and I have used Sant Singh Khalsa ji's work in this regard before. Literals do not convey the essence most of the time what Guru ji are teaching. Specially to those who are Punjabi and Punjab environs limited but otherwise would love to understand Sri Guru Granth Sahib ji.

    From what I see you are doing one shabad a day. You should perhaps slow down but provide understandings/gist as you see it. Use Sant Singh Khalsa ji's work as a starting point as it will save lot of time for you and vary it where you differ only. Good luck regardless in your continuing and worthwhile efforts.

    Sat Sri Akal.

    ...ਬਿਖੁ = poison and not evil. Gur Ghar quite often uses the word ਬਿਖੁ to denote from a substantive perspective the harm to one's self and not to another. Evil falls within the ambit of morality, that is, right n wrong, good n bad, etc. inflicted presumably, which is not what the verse is referring to.

    Take care and please continue...

    Swarn Bains ji I am feeling folky and taking a leaf from your alternate way of thinking attempted a more commoner level like me way of understanding bani. I am trying to be in the mind of the most respected writer and looking from inside out.

    Page 215

    ਅਚਰਜੁ ਏਕੁ ਸੁਨਹੁ ਰੇ ਭਾਈ ਗੁਰਿ ਐਸੀ ਬੂਝ ਬੁਝਾਈ ॥
    I have come to know such a wisdom from the creator.
    O brother; listen this strange feeling. Guru has explained such a teaching!

    ਲਾਹਿ ਪਰਦਾ ਠਾਕੁਰੁ ਜਉ ਭੇਟਿਓ ਤਉ ਬਿਸਰੀ ਤਾਤਿ ਪਰਾਈ ॥੩॥
    When i just get rid of this shroud and become with the creator, I don't feel desire for things of others.
    When I surrendered to the Lord removing the veil; l gave up ill feeling of others. ||3||

    ਕਹਿਓ ਨ ਜਾਈ ਏਹੁ ਅਚੰਭਉ ਸੋ ਜਾਨੈ ਜਿਨਿ ਚਾਖਿਆ ॥
    I cannot talk about this as you will know when you taste it.
    I cannot explain this strange feeling; only those who taste it know it.

    ਕਹੁ ਨਾਨਕ ਸਚ ਭਏ ਬਿਗਾਸਾ ਗੁਰਿ ਨਿਧਾਨੁ ਰਿਦੈ ਲੈ ਰਾਖਿਆ
    With creator teachings in my heart I am blissful.
    Says Nanak; true happiness have emerged enshrining guru’s teaching in the mind. ||

    ਹਰਿ ਕਾ ਨਾਮੁ ਜਪਹੁ ਮੇਰੇ ਮੀਤਾ ਇਹੈ ਸਾਰ ਸੁਖੁ ਪੂਰਾ ॥
    If I contemplate upon creator, this way I am in total comfort.
    O my friend; recite the name of God. This is the essence of complete peace.

    ਸਾਧਸੰਗਤਿ ਜਨਮ ਮਰਣੁ ਨਿਵਾਰੈ ਨਾਨਕ ਜਨ ਕੀ ਧੂਰਾ
    When I am with the pious all this birth and death stuff disappears.
    In the company of devotees; birth and death are eliminated. Nanak is the dust of the feet of devotees

    Obviously way less perfect translation or interpretation but just a refreshing or alternate way to look perhaps.

    Any comments.

    Sat Sri Akal.

    Gentlemen

    Well done ! To be engaged with the translation of Gurbani is in itself a task worthy of bliss, let alone fame n favour from the Almighty, but first, a little something from me. The translation as I see it is of twofold:
    1. Translation from Gurmukhi to English and then,
    2. interpretation thereof, giving effect to meaning, intention and purpose .
    All this on the back of the ideological, theoretical and the metaphorical relationship of Brahm [Ikonkar] with humankind and the cosmos.

    ਅਚਰਜੁ = extraordinary; ਬੂਝ = understanding of comprehensive material, intellect; ਬੁਝਾਈ = extinguished, quenched, thus:
    O brother, listen to this extraordinary wisdom of the Guru with which the intellect is extinguished..
    ਲਾਹਿ ਪਰਦਾ = remove veil; ਬਿਸਰੀ = forgotten; ਤਾਤਿ = ill feelings; ਪਰਾਈ = others, another's.
    ..veil now removed, I have met the Lord and forgotten all the ill feelings for others.

    This extraordinary joy cannot be said for only those who have tasted it, know.
