    Dear Khalsa Ji,

    With Grace of ‘The Sat’, today I share with you my understanding of the Salok that precedes the 11th Ashtapadee of sukhmani Sahib.

    1. krx kwrx pRBu eyku hY dUsr nwhI koie ] karan kaaran parabh ayk hai doosar naahee ko-ay.
    ‘The Sat’ is the reason and the doer of all that happens in its creation; there is no one else.

    My understanding:
    Whatever happens in the creation of ‘The Sat’, it is organized by ‘The Sat’ through its cosmic forces which are under the absolute control of ‘The Sat’. It is the net result of this organized action of ‘The Sat’ that impacts on us. This way ‘The Sat’ becomes the reason (kwrx Kaarun) for what happens. Since these cosmic forces are under absolute control of ‘The Sat’ it becomes the doer (krx – Karun).

    2. nwnk iqsu bilhwrxY jil Qil mhIAil soie ]1] naanak tis balihaarnai jal thal mahee-al so-ay. ||1||
    Nanak says to himself that for such an all pervading (jil - water, Qil - land, mhIAil - sky) entity I sacrifice myself.

    My understanding:

    In this Tuk, Guru Sahib expresses his amazement of the infiniteness of ‘The Sat’’ who is all pervading and says for such an entity he sacrifices himself.

    With this I close the post.

    With Love and respect for all.

    Amarpal Singh

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!
