    The saviour from misery and hurt of the poor, the helper of the forlorn. I am at your door creator, holding the coattails of Guru Nanak


    Eight stanzas hymn.
    ਜਹ ਮਾਤ ਪਿਤਾ ਸੁਤ ਮੀਤ ਭਾਈ ਮਨ ਊਹਾ ਨਾਮੁ ਤੇਰੈ ਸੰਗਿ ਸਹਾਈ
    Jah māṯ piṯā suṯ mīṯ na bẖā▫ī. Man ūhā nām ṯerai sang sahā▫ī.
    Where your mother, father, son or friend don’t sustain. My mind, the creator’s understanding will assist and sustain
    ਜਹ ਮਹਾ ਭਇਆਨ ਦੂਤ ਜਮ ਦਲੈ ਤਹ ਕੇਵਲ ਨਾਮੁ ਸੰਗਿ ਤੇਰੈ ਚਲੈ
    Jah mahā bẖa▫i▫ān ḏūṯ jam ḏalai. Ŧah keval nām sang ṯerai cẖalai.
    Where there is a specter of threatening demons. Only creator’s understanding sustains you there
    ਜਹ ਮੁਸਕਲ ਹੋਵੈ ਅਤਿ ਭਾਰੀ ਹਰਿ ਕੋ ਨਾਮੁ ਖਿਨ ਮਾਹਿ ਉਧਾਰੀ

    Anik punahcẖaran karaṯ nahī ṯarai. Har ko nām kot pāp parharai.
    Carrying out many rituals and offerings does not save. The creator’s understanding delivers from millions of evil acts

    Ambarsaria ji,

    Guru Fateh.

    My 2 cent worth.

    In the Ist Shabad of 2nd Ashtpadi and the Salok before, Guru Sahib subtly tell us what Simran is which he had mentioned in the first one and as very well explained both Simran and Jaap by you with the help of Mahan Kosh.

    Once we understand Ik Ong Kaar with the help of our inner Gurdwaras, (Thanks Harry ji and sorry for nicking your well thought expression), then our only place of refuge, help, a shoulder to lean on is Ik Ong Kaar because, The Source is the only one who knows our inner conflicts, our pains and suffering. Ik Ong Kaar is our only true shrink.

    So; a hug, an embrace, a pat at the back as a motivation even when we are wrong, a hand to pick us up when we have fallen, someone to shake our shoulders to wake us up when we are sleep walking in the only ONE- Ik Ong Kaar.

    Wonderfully done and a great seva on your part!

    Thanks & regards

    Tejwant Singh
