Pauri 3

3.Gawai ko tan howai kisey tan. Gawai ko daat janai nisan. Gawai ko gun wadyaeean char. Gawai ko widya wikham vichar. Gawai ko saaj karai tan kheh. Gawai ko jee lai phir deh. Gawai ko japai dissai dur. Gawai ko waik hai hadra hadur. Kathna kathina awey toat. Kath kath kathi koti kot kot. Denda dey laindey thak payeh. Juga jugantar khahi khayeh: Hukami hukam chalai raah. Nanak wigsai wey parwah.

In this Pauri, Satguru Nanak Dev shows that limited human power and intellect cannot fully express in spoken words His omnipotence, His unlimited gifts, His beautiful qualities, and the depth of His wisdom.
Who has the power to express in words His omnipotence ?

Who can appraise His gifts and attributes?

Who can sing the praise of His noble and beautiful qualities?

Who can express in words His vast knowledge, and the unfathomable reason (power of right thinking)?

Who can express His greatness, Who creates all life and then takes it back to the dust, from which it sprung?

Or Who can find power to praise Him who takes away all life and again brings it into existence?

Who can sing in words, Him who appears far removed from us?

Who can sing in ecstacy, Him who is omnipresent and reveals himself all around in the creation (Nature)?

Since the creation of the world, millions of person's have sung the praises of the above mentioned qualities, but their' limit has not been reached in words by any one. He can be realized, but words have no power to express His unlimited qualities and power. He is the tireless bestower of unlimited gifts. The receivers are weighed down with His bounties. They enjoy them from age to age. They spend their span of life, and then pass away. This process of giving and taking goes on from age to age, cycle to cycle. Sayeth Nanak, the Divine master controls the immutable Divine Law, yet remains unattached, everjoyful and self-contained.

Shabad Vichaar by SPN'ers

Happy Vaisakhi to all!! It was hard to pick something to discuss this week as Vaisakhi is all about commitment to the ShabadGuru and theforefore the entire Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji is relevant...
