    Salok (Core theme of eight sabads/hymns in the Astpadi)

    ਉਸਤਤਿ ਕਰਹਿ ਅਨੇਕ ਜਨ ਅੰਤੁ ਪਾਰਾਵਾਰ ਨਾਨਕ ਰਚਨਾ ਪ੍ਰਭਿ ਰਚੀ ਬਹੁ ਬਿਧਿ ਅਨਿਕ ਪ੍ਰਕਾਰ ੧॥
    Usṯaṯ karahi anek jan anṯ na pārāvār. Nānak racẖnā parabẖ racẖī baho biḏẖ anik parkār. ||1||
    Many people praise thee but there are no limits to such. Nanak, the creator architected this universe with many methods of different types.

    ਕਈ ਕੋਟਿ ਸਿਧ ਜਤੀ ਜੋਗੀ ਕਈ ਕੋਟਿ ਰਾਜੇ ਰਸ ਭੋਗੀ
    Ka▫ī kot siḏẖ jaṯī jogī. Ka▫ī kot rāje ras bẖogī.
    Many millions are learned and practice lust control. Many millions enjoy pleasures of kings.

    ਕਈ ਕੋਟਿ ਪੰਖੀ ਸਰਪ ਉਪਾਏ ਕਈ ਕੋਟਿ ਪਾਥਰ ਬਿਰਖ ਨਿਪਜਾਏ
    Ka▫ī kot pankẖī sarap upā▫e. Ka▫ī kot pāthar birakẖ nipjā▫e.
    Many million birds and serpents have been created. Many million stones and trees established.

    ਕਈ ਕੋਟਿ ਪਵਣ ਪਾਣੀ ਬੈਸੰਤਰ ਕਈ ਕੋਟਿ ਦੇਸ ਭੂ ਮੰਡਲ

    Many million winds and fires. Many million countries and circles of worlds.

    ਕਈ ਕੋਟਿ ਸਸੀਅਰ ਸੂਰ ਨਖ੍ਯ੍ਯਤ੍ਰ ਕਈ ਕੋਟਿ ਦੇਵ ਦਾਨਵ ਇੰਦ੍ਰ ਸਿਰਿ ਛਤ੍ਰ
    Ka▫ī kot sasī▫ar sūr nakẖ▫yaṯar. Ka▫ī kot ḏev ḏānav inḏar sir cẖẖaṯar.
    Many million moon, sun and stars. Many million demons and deities with regal canopies.

    ਸਗਲ ਸਮਗ੍ਰੀ ਅਪਨੈ ਸੂਤਿ ਧਾਰੈ ਨਾਨਕ ਜਿਸੁ ਜਿਸੁ ਭਾਵੈ ਤਿਸੁ ਤਿਸੁ ਨਿਸਤਾਰੈ ੩॥
    Sagal samagrī apnai sūṯ ḏẖārai. Nānak jis jis bẖāvai ṯis ṯis nisṯārai. ||3||
    All is strung in own one thread. Nanak one so loved is salvaged.
    Please note all errors are mine and I stand corrected.

    Sat Sri Akal.

    Another way of looking at things:

    I can play good guitar!
    There are millions of them!

    I am a software engineer!
    There are millions of them!

    I can sing well!
    There are millions of them!

    I am good at basketball!
    There are millions of them!

    Waheguru, you are the truly One and Only!
    Welcome home!

    I wonder if the reference or meaning to Indra and his deities is to functions of the limitless Creation which are assigned these deities in Hinduism

    So basically Waheguru Ji is responsible for everything that happens in nature...or is that too simplistic????

    Seeker9 ji SGGS has a very fundamental precept which is beyond confusion. This is the concept of "One Creator".

    All the rest of references are to show to people as to what they think one of (say Vishnu) there are many millions of, and so on. Essentially pointing out nothing unique or singular in such deities or demons. Making such precepts meaningless in the politest of ways, Guru ji's ways.

    Why did Guru ji even mention any deity, God and Goddesses names in the first place. Very simple. They were addressing Hindus of the day, say 99.9% of the time. If they did not address, these would have been questions unanswered and exploited by the Brahmanic soul rulers to create confusion and bring the deserters of Hinduism, Sikhs back into the Hinduism fold. It goes without saying that even with the clarity with which SGGS addresses such, there are plenty of even Sikhs confused and falling for the Hinduism thoughts, Hindu/Sikh amalgamations or persona, and so forth. However Sikhism is not a dictatorship to pass judgement on such people. However if they try to misdirect SGGS we need to be vigilant and stand up.

    Sat Sri Akal.
