The blessings of the creator leads to creator’s understanding. Guru Nanak, such pious people have attained 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 Eighth and final Shabad of First Astpadi, Guru ji state that understanding of the creator exaltation in the seekers, many scriptures come about, wisdom and fame appear. Guru ji amplify the pursuit of understanding as though the basis of all creation, the presence of creator in all. Guru ji state that the creator’s blessing leads the people looking up to the creator to seek and understand the creator.
I can craft an essence of the complete first Astpadi if it is desirable. Please let me know.
Sat Sri Akal.
