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

    ਮਨਿ ਸਾਚਾ ਮੁਖਿ ਸਾਚਾ ਸੋਇ ਅਵਰੁ ਪੇਖੈ ਏਕਸੁ ਬਿਨੁ ਕੋਇ
    Man sācẖā mukẖ sācẖā so▫e. Avar na pekẖai ekas bin ko▫e.
    One whose mind is pure, only can such can utter pure. None is seen other than one creator.

    ਨਾਨਕ ਇਹ ਲਛਣ ਬ੍ਰਹਮ ਗਿਆਨੀ ਹੋਇ ੧॥
    Nānak ih lacẖẖaṇ barahm gi▫ānī ho▫e. ||1||
    Nanak, these are the attributes of such most learned

    ਅਸਟਪਦੀ
    Asatpaḏī.
    Eight stanzas hymn

    ਬ੍ਰਹਮ ਗਿਆਨੀ ਨਿਰਮਲ ਤੇ ਨਿਰਮਲਾ ਜੈਸੇ ਮੈਲੁ ਲਾਗੈ ਜਲਾ
    Barahm gi▫ānī nirmal ṯe nirmalā. Jaise mail na lāgai jalā.
    Most learned is purest of the pure. Just as filth does not stick to water.

    ਬ੍ਰਹਮ ਗਿਆਨੀ ਕੈ ਮਨਿ ਹੋਇ ਪ੍ਰਗਾਸੁ ਜੈਸੇ ਧਰ ਊਪਰਿ ਆਕਾਸੁ
    Barahm gi▫ānī kai man ho▫e pargās. Jaise ḏẖar ūpar ākās.
    Most learned’s mind is enlightened. Just as sky above the earth.

    ਬ੍ਰਹਮ ਗਿਆਨੀ ਕੈ ਮਿਤ੍ਰ ਸਤ੍ਰੁ ਸਮਾਨਿ ਬ੍ਰਹਮ ਗਿਆਨੀ ਕੈ ਨਾਹੀ ਅਭਿਮਾਨ
    Barahm gi▫ānī kai miṯar saṯar samān. Barahm gi▫ānī kai nāhī abẖimān.
    Most learned sees friend and enemy as same. Most learned does not have egotism.

    ਬ੍ਰਹਮ ਗਿਆਨੀ ਊਚ ਤੇ ਊਚਾ ਮਨਿ ਅਪਨੈ ਹੈ ਸਭ ਤੇ ਨੀਚਾ
    Barahm gi▫ānī ūcẖ ṯe ūcẖā. Man apnai hai sabẖ ṯe nīcẖā.
    Most learned is higher than the highest. In own mind thinks self to be the lowest.

    ਬ੍ਰਹਮ ਗਿਆਨੀ ਸੇ ਜਨ ਭਏ ਨਾਨਕ ਜਿਨ ਪ੍ਰਭੁ ਆਪਿ ਕਰੇਇ ੨॥
    Barahm gi▫ānī se jan bẖa▫e. Nānak jin parabẖ āp kare▫i. ||2||
    Such become the most learned. Nanak, those that the creator so makes.
    Please note all errors are mine and I stand corrected.

    Sat Sri Akal.

    This is the perfect line, how the world sees you and how you see the world :)

    Kanwaljit Singh ji thanks for your thoughts. I find it great joy beyond being our SGGS how rich the poetic, observational and genuine connectedness to reality the poetry is. Many times I am so enthralled in how such was captured and what a gift by our Guru jis.

    Sat Sri Akal.
