Guru Nanak Dev Ji Being Asked: Where It All Started, Where The Creator, Overcoming Fear, 9


ੴ / Ik▫oaʼnkār
Dec 21, 2010
Some very interesting questions being posed to Guru ji. These appear to be quite acquiesce with what may still be thinking to date in our lives.

Guru jis being asked where it all began. How to recognize pertinent wisdom and find where it resides? How to replace fears with calmness?

Let us review the following,

Sidhas/Yogis ask:
ਆਦਿ ਕਉ ਕਵਨੁ ਬੀਚਾਰੁ ਕਥੀਅਲੇ ਸੁੰਨ ਕਹਾ ਘਰ ਵਾਸੋ ਗਿਆਨ ਕੀ ਮੁਦ੍ਰਾ ਕਵਨ ਕਥੀਅਲੇ ਘਟਿ ਘਟਿ ਕਵਨ ਨਿਵਾਸੋ
Āḏ ka▫o kavan bīcẖār kathī▫ale sunn kahā gẖar vāso. Gi▫ān kī muḏrā kavan kathī▫ale gẖat gẖat kavan nivāso.
What thoughts about the beginning? What to say about the creator’s abode? What ear rings so depict the grand wisdom? Who so resides in each and every heart?

ਕਾਲ ਕਾ ਠੀਗਾ ਕਿਉ ਜਲਾਈਅਲੇ ਕਿਉ ਨਿਰਭਉ ਘਰਿ ਜਾਈਐ ਸਹਜ ਸੰਤੋਖ ਕਾ ਆਸਣੁ ਜਾਣੈ ਕਿਉ ਛੇਦੇ ਬੈਰਾਈਐ
Kāl kā ṯẖīgā ki▫o jalā▫ī▫ale ki▫o nirbẖa▫o gẖar jā▫ī▫ai. Sahj sanṯokẖ kā āsaṇ jāṇai ki▫o cẖẖeḏe bairā▫ī▫ai.
How to so eradicate the hurt of death? How to so enter the place of no fear? How so to adopt calm, collected composure and pierce the enemies?
Guru Ji’s answers:
ਗੁਰ ਕੈ ਸਬਦਿ ਹਉਮੈ ਬਿਖੁ ਮਾਰੈ ਤਾ ਨਿਜ ਘਰਿ ਹੋਵੈ ਵਾਸੋ ਜਿਨਿ ਰਚਿ ਰਚਿਆ ਤਿਸੁ ਸਬਦਿ ਪਛਾਣੈ ਨਾਨਕੁ ਤਾ ਕਾ ਦਾਸੋ ੨੧॥
Gur kai sabaḏ ha▫umai bikẖ mārai ṯā nij gẖar hovai vāso. Jin racẖ racẖi▫ā ṯis sabaḏ pacẖẖāṇai Nānak ṯā kā ḏāso. ||21||
Understanding of the creator and so eliminating egotism, by self so becomes resident within. One who so created the creation if such wisdom so understood, Nanak a humble servant to such.
Guru ji describe in creator’s understanding the ego dissipates and creator residence within shows up. It is a rare occurrence to be so blessed and Guru ji show gratitude to be in the company of any such.

Have we so discovered in our lives what Guru ji elude to!

Sat Sri Akal.
