Only those seek understanding who are intuitively so guided by the creator. Guru Nanak respectfully touches the feet of such.
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 Third Shabad of First Astpadi, Guru ji describe that in lie understanding of the creator the identification of treasures, the identification of fundamental knowledge, understanding displaces other means like physical exercises and ritualistic practices like holy baths. Only such understanding is declared of value as this provides recognition of good and also provides feedback on one’s progress to full fruition. Guru ji highly covet the seekers of understanding and do say it comes through a cajoling by the creator.
Sat Sri Akal.
