The creator’s understanding comes in company of pious. Guru Nanak, all treasures are realized in the understanding of the creator
Please note all errors are mine and I stand corrected.ESSENCE: Guru ji in the salok first offer respects to the creator as originator, time immemorial, truth and divine.
In this Second Shabad of First Astpadi, Guru ji describe what is “Sukhmani” and say that it is the result of understanding the creator. Guru ji write it is in the mind of the devout humble people so understanding. Guru ji then describe possible benefits and signs that one is achieving such understanding. Namely, lack of carrying out repeated transformation in birth and death, riddance of feared pain, riddance of fear of death, animosity to one dissipates, obstacles are no more, continuous awareness of the creator is there, fear and anguish don’t take hold.
Finally in the company of the pious is the best to achieve such understanding and all is realized.
Note:[/FONT] In a way for us this sabad gives a metric to measure where we stand in our understanding. Do we have what we should and not have what we shouldn't had we followed Guru ji's teaching and Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji?
Humbly submitted per great suggestions. I am still finalizing formatting, presentation and such so please provide inputs if issues with fonts, layout and of course content.
Sat Sri Akal.
