    Japji Sahib Commentary/ Translated by Master Teja Singh

    Pauri 8

    8. Suniai sidh pir surnath. Sunial dharat dhawal akas. Sunial deep lo patal. Suniai poh na sakai kal Nanak bhagatan sada vigas. Suniai dookh pap ka nas.

    In the next four Pauris (8, 9, 10, 11), Satguru Nanak Dev Ji Maharaj says that those persons who listen to the teachings of the Satguru with rapt attention and make them dwell in their minds, gain the various stages of human development according to the aim that they keep before them. Those who desire occult powers become Sidhs, Pirs etc. and those who desire worldly greatness become Sheikh (the head o( the clan) or king.

    By listening to the teachings of the Satguru with rapt attention and by controlling the mind from wandering away, one reaches the stage of a Sidh (master of occult powers), Pir (the spiritual head of a community), Surnath or king of devtas (persons blessed with noble qualities and purity of mind) . By listening to the holy words of the Satguru, the dwellers on this earth, the nether world and the world above gain all degrees of greatness. Or by listening to and drinking in deep the Divine name, the balance of the earth and whole universe above and below are maintained.

    The inhabitants of the seven continents, oceans and spheres and the dwellers of the nether world attain various stages of higher life. Or the seven continents the upper and the lower worlds, go on doing their duty in their fixed spheres. By listening attentively to the teachings of the Guru and drinking them deep in the mind one rises above the fear of death. Sayeth Nanak, His devotees who meditate on His name, and drink in deep the nectar of the Divine life within, are filled with ecstacy and their faces beam with the Divine joy. No pain or sin can touch them. They rise above all pain and sin.
     
Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
