Salok (Core theme of eight sabads/hymns in the Astpadi)

ਕਰਣ ਕਾਰਣ ਪ੍ਰਭੁ ਏਕੁ ਹੈ ਦੂਸਰ ਨਾਹੀ ਕੋਇ ਨਾਨਕ ਤਿਸੁ ਬਲਿਹਾਰਣੈ ਜਲਿ ਥਲਿ ਮਹੀਅਲਿ ਸੋਇ ੧॥
Karaṇ kāraṇ parabẖ ek hai ḏūsar nāhī ko▫e. Nānak ṯis balihārṇai jal thal mahī▫al so▫e. ||1||
Creator of creation and doer is one and there is no second. Nanak so such be exalted for which there is water, land and all above it.

Eight stanzas hymn

ਪ੍ਰਭ ਭਾਵੈ ਮਾਨੁਖ ਗਤਿ ਪਾਵੈ ਪ੍ਰਭ ਭਾਵੈ ਤਾ ਪਾਥਰ ਤਰਾਵੈ
Parabẖ bẖāvai mānukẖ gaṯ pāvai. Parabẖ bẖāvai ṯā pāthar ṯarāvai.
Creator likes, person finds salvation. Creator likes, stone floats.

ਪ੍ਰਭ ਭਾਵੈ ਬਿਨੁ ਸਾਸ ਤੇ ਰਾਖੈ ਪ੍ਰਭ ਭਾਵੈ ਤਾ ਹਰਿ ਗੁਣ ਭਾਖੈ
Parabẖ bẖāvai bin sās ṯe rākẖai. Parabẖ bẖāvai ṯā har guṇ bẖākẖai.
Creator likes, can stay alive without breath. Creator likes, virtues of the creator are uttered.

ਪ੍ਰਭ ਭਾਵੈ ਤਾ ਪਤਿਤ ਉਧਾਰੈ ਆਪਿ ਕਰੈ ਆਪਨ ਬੀਚਾਰੈ
Parabẖ bẖāvai ṯā paṯiṯ uḏẖārai. Āp karai āpan bīcẖārai.
Creator likes, the disgraced are saved. Does by self per own consideration.

ਦੁਹਾ ਸਿਰਿਆ ਕਾ ਆਪਿ ਸੁਆਮੀ ਖੇਲੈ ਬਿਗਸੈ ਅੰਤਰਜਾਮੀ
Ḏuhā siri▫ā kā āp su▫āmī. Kẖelai bigsai anṯarjāmī.
Is master of both ends. Plays and gets happiness knowing all inner thoughts.

ਜੋ ਭਾਵੈ ਸੋ ਕਾਰ ਕਰਾਵੈ ਨਾਨਕ ਦ੍ਰਿਸਟੀ ਅਵਰੁ ਆਵੈ ੨॥
Jo bẖāvai so kār karāvai. Nānak ḏaristī avar na āvai. ||2||
What is liked gets implemented. Nanak none other is in vision.
ESSENCE: In the salok, Guru ji state that many try to describe the creator but such is limitless. The creator creates with a variety of methods and of different types.

Guru Arjan Dev ji in Astpadi 11, 2nd sabad review the powers of the creator. Specifically in terms of salvation, activities that will seem out of this world to us through lack of understanding, likes of stones floating and life without breath, saving the disgraced and working at he extremes of life and living.

Guru ji conclude to be only seeing one that gets executed what so likes and none other is visualized.
Please note all errors are mine and I stand corrected.

Sat Sri Akal.
