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

    ਸੁਖੀ ਬਸੈ ਮਸਕੀਨੀਆ ਆਪੁ ਨਿਵਾਰਿ ਤਲੇ ਬਡੇ ਬਡੇ ਅਹੰਕਾਰੀਆ ਨਾਨਕ ਗਰਬਿ ਗਲੇ ੧॥
    Sukẖī basai maskīnī▫ā āp nivār ṯale. Bade bade ahaʼnkārī▫ā Nānak garab gale. ||1||
    The mild mannered live in comfort acting selfless and low. Nanak many bigger than big ego centric, rot in egotism.

    ਅਸਟਪਦੀ
    Asatpaḏī.
    Eight stanzas hymn

    ਕੋਟਿ ਕਰਮ ਕਰੈ ਹਉ ਧਾਰੇ ਸ੍ਰਮੁ ਪਾਵੈ ਸਗਲੇ ਬਿਰਥਾਰੇ
    Kot karam karai ha▫o ḏẖāre. Saram pāvai sagle birthāre.
    Doing millions of deeds based on ego. All such useless acts lead only to of no value.

    ਅਨਿਕ ਤਪਸਿਆ ਕਰੇ ਅਹੰਕਾਰ ਨਰਕ ਸੁਰਗ ਫਿਰਿ ਫਿਰਿ ਅਵਤਾਰ
    Anik ṯapasi▫ā kare ahaʼnkār. Narak surag fir fir avṯār.
    Many acts of penance done with ego. Such is so reborn in heaven and hell again and again.

    ਅਨਿਕ ਜਤਨ ਕਰਿ ਆਤਮ ਨਹੀ ਦ੍ਰਵੈ ਹਰਿ ਦਰਗਹ ਕਹੁ ਕੈਸੇ ਗਵੈ
    Anik jaṯan kar āṯam nahī ḏarvai. Har ḏargėh kaho kaise gavai.
    In spite of many attempts if the soul is not softened. Say, how can go such to be in creator’s abode.

    ਆਪਸ ਕਉ ਜੋ ਭਲਾ ਕਹਾਵੈ ਤਿਸਹਿ ਭਲਾਈ ਨਿਕਟਿ ਆਵੈ
    Āpas ka▫o jo bẖalā kahāvai. Ŧisėh bẖalā▫ī nikat na āvai.
    One who gets self to be called noble. Nobleness never comes close to such.

    ਸਰਬ ਕੀ ਰੇਨ ਜਾ ਕਾ ਮਨੁ ਹੋਇ ਕਹੁ ਨਾਨਕ ਤਾ ਕੀ ਨਿਰਮਲ ਸੋਇ ੩॥
    Sarab kī ren jā kā man ho▫e. Kaho Nānak ṯā kī nirmal so▫e. ||3||
    One whose mind is as though dirt under everyone’s feet. Nanak such is so recognized for piety.
    Please note all errors are mine and I stand corrected.

    Sat Sri Akaal
    ਸੁਖੀ ਬਸੈ ਮਸਕੀਨੀਆ ਆਪੁ ਨਿਵਾਰਿ ਤਲੇ
    ਬਡੇ ਬਡੇ ਅਹੰਕਾਰੀਆ ਨਾਨਕ ਗਰਬਿ ਗਲੇ ੧॥

    ਸੁਖੀ (State of no thought or nothing in mind) ਬਸੈ (Dwell) ਮਸਕੀਨੀਆ (humble one) ਆਪੁ (self) ਨਿਵਾਰਿ ਤਲੇ (transcends down to actions)

    State of no thought dwells in humble ones, whose thoughts self (without effort) transcends in actions,
    i.e. humble beings with noble thoughts ( helping needy, sat sangat, sharing, caring, etc) can transcend in actions.

    but egoist thoughts of mind (posession of power, position, space, higher education etc),
    those thought may die within mind (garbh for thoughts).


    thought which one can turn in actions cause bliss state
    (state of no thinking) refer as "Sukhi" of humble beings

    and egoist thoughts which can not mature in actions causes "Dukh"

    Guru's Bani explains the "state of no thing in mind" of humble beings and elaborated further

    ਅਨਿਕ ਤਪਸਿਆ ਕਰੇ ਅਹੰਕਾਰ ਨਰਕ ਸੁਰਗ ਫਿਰਿ ਫਿਰਿ ਅਵਤਾਰ
    ਅਨਿਕ Lot ਤਪਸਿਆ hard efforts ਕਰੇ do ਅਹੰਕਾਰ mind's egoist thought
    ਨਰਕ Negativity ਸੁਰਗ positvity ਫਿਰਿ ਫਿਰਿ again and again ਅਵਤਾਰ born and die

    With one's egoist thought, one's body performs lot of actions,
    under the influence of one's own ego,
    without understanding of "SAT" one performs action.
    And the results of physical actions
    if are in tune with thoughts one feels "sukhi" due to offload of desire,
    and "dukhi" as moe efforts is required.

    "Sukh" and "Dukh" in physical terms is

    For any thought in mind after performing physical act
    if one achieves results as desired by one's own mind one feels sukhi,
    else one is "dukhi"

    "Sukh" and "Dukh" in spiritual terms is

    Mind in free state "nothing in mind" is "Sukhi" offload of desire
    Mind in occupied state "thing in mind" or "desires in mind" is "dukhi" upload of desire.

    In reality "sukh" and "dukh" are one's own state without awareness of creator.

    Kanwaljit Singh veer ji this is a wonderful example to illustrate and understand what Guru ji's style of teaching is to convey guidance to people who were linked to certain thoughts or regimen.

    Time and again in Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji our Guru ji's and others challenge such blind faith, incomplete tangential regimens which promised achievements not possible.

    Unfortunately for Sikhism, some people are going to now try to mis-direct the message as follows,

    • Guru ji believe in ਤਪਸਿਆ /Hard body regimens driven through deprivation
    • Guru ji believe in ਨਰਕ ਸੁਰਗ / Hell-Heaven
    • Guru ji believe in re-incarnation by saying cycle of Birth-Death
    Such doubt creators, mis-interpretors abound with a mission and followers of teachings coming from the Babeys/Sants/Mahraj's/Dehras/Sects, etc.

    Of course one can have honest misunderstandings and it is no big deal but many a times it is not so. Unfortunate for Sikhism and the sanctitiy of our Guru ji's thoughts and the messages in Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji, this is quite an uphill battle.

    Who am I to say so other that to be so sad to see it so!

    Sat Sri Akal.

    Sat Sri Akaal,

    Guru ji believe in ਨਰਕ ਸੁਰਗ / Hell-Heaven

    "Guru's Bani" experiences belief
    Who understand's can share "Sat"
    Where is Hell and Where is Heaven
