The creator is recognized in every utterance of the tongue of the pious. Guru Nanak is at service to such pious followers 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 Fourth Shabad of First Astpadi, Guru ji describe that pursuit of creator’s understanding is noblest of all endeavors. It quenches, it unravels, it de-demonizes, it provides fulfillment, it cleanses and creates a pure heart. Guru ji treats the pious with utmost cordiality and respect for such pursuits.
Sat Sri Akal.
