    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.

    Eight stanzas hymn

    ਕਈ ਕੋਟਿ ਰਾਜਸ ਤਾਮਸ ਸਾਤਕ ਕਈ ਕੋਟਿ ਬੇਦ ਪੁਰਾਨ ਸਿਮ੍ਰਿਤਿ ਅਰੁ ਸਾਸਤ
    Ka▫ī kot rājas ṯāmas sāṯak. Ka▫ī kot beḏ purān simriṯ ar sāsaṯ.
    Many million seek, get blinded, and get peace. Many million are scriptures, simritees and treatises.

    ਕਈ ਕੋਟਿ ਕੀਏ ਰਤਨ ਸਮੁਦ ਕਈ ਕੋਟਿ ਨਾਨਾ ਪ੍ਰਕਾਰ ਜੰਤ
    Ka▫ī kot kī▫e raṯan samuḏ. Ka▫ī kot nānā parkār janṯ.
    Many million pearls created in the ocean. Many million types of life.

    ਕਈ ਕੋਟਿ ਕੀਏ ਚਿਰ ਜੀਵੇ ਕਈ ਕੋਟਿ ਗਿਰੀ ਮੇਰ ਸੁਵਰਨ ਥੀਵੇ
    Ka▫ī kot kī▫e cẖir jīve. Ka▫ī kot girī mer suvran thīve.
    Many million created to have long life. Many million mountains where gold exists.

    ਕਈ ਕੋਟਿ ਜਖ੍ਯ੍ਯ ਕਿੰਨਰ ਪਿਸਾਚ ਕਈ ਕੋਟਿ ਭੂਤ ਪ੍ਰੇਤ ਸੂਕਰ ਮ੍ਰਿਗਾਚ
    Ka▫ī kot jakẖ▫y kinnar pisācẖ. Ka▫ī kot bẖūṯ pareṯ sūkar marigācẖ.
    Many million deities under deity of wealth, deities with horse’s head and human body, and low life. Many million demons and ghosts, swine and deer hunters.

    ਸਭ ਤੇ ਨੇਰੈ ਸਭਹੂ ਤੇ ਦੂਰਿ ਨਾਨਕ ਆਪਿ ਅਲਿਪਤੁ ਰਹਿਆ ਭਰਪੂਰਿ ੪॥
    Sabẖ ṯe nerai sabẖhū ṯe ḏūr. Nānak āp alipaṯ rahi▫ā bẖarpūr. ||4||
    Near to all, far from all. Nanak, the untainted creator by self is in all.
    SPECIAL NOTE … contd from Astpadi 10, sabad 3: In this sabad the reference to “many millions” of deities and demons as a matter of practicality destroys the Hinduism focus on a handful of their deities and demons as well as the use of such to control the masses. Creator is omni-present linked with believed or real many millions of manifestations.

    Please note all errors are mine and I stand corrected.

    Sat Sri Akal.

    Tigerstylez ji thanks for your post.

    I study as follows and then share my thoughts,

    • Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji (Punjabi)
    • Prof. Sahib Singh ji Darpan (Punjabi)
    • Bhai Manmohan Singh ji's Teeka (Punjabi)
    • Dr. Sant Singh Khalsa ji's translation (English)
    • Sometimes fro clarity, Mahan Kosh by Kahn Singh ji Nabha (Punjabi)
    My understanding that I share rarily (but at times so) lines up 100% with any of the interpretations. From English perspective, I probably am same as Dr. Sant Singh Khalsa ji's translation much less than 1% of the time.

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!
