Salok.
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.

ਅਸਟਪਦੀ
Asatpaḏī.
Eight stanzas hymn

ਇਸ ਕਾ ਬਲੁ ਨਾਹੀ ਇਸੁ ਹਾਥ ਕਰਨ ਕਰਾਵਨ ਸਰਬ ਕੋ ਨਾਥ
Is kā bal nāhī is hāth.Karan karāvan sarab ko nāth.
One’s strength is not in one’s hands. The creator is the creator and catalyst of all happening.

ਆਗਿਆਕਾਰੀ ਬਪੁਰਾ ਜੀਉ ਜੋ ਤਿਸੁ ਭਾਵੈ ਸੋਈ ਫੁਨਿ ਥੀਉ
Āgi▫ākārī bapurā jī▫o.Jo ṯis bẖāvai so▫ī fun thī▫o.
The hapless follows as directed. What happens is what is so liked by such.

ਕਬਹੂ ਊਚ ਨੀਚ ਮਹਿ ਬਸੈ ਕਬਹੂ ਸੋਗ ਹਰਖ ਰੰਗਿ ਹਸੈ
Kabhū ūcẖ nīcẖ mėh basai.Kabhū sog harakẖ rang hasai.
Sometimes such shows in the high or low. At times worry hurts or laughs in happiness.

ਕਬਹੂ ਨਿੰਦ ਚਿੰਦ ਬਿਉਹਾਰ ਕਬਹੂ ਊਭ ਅਕਾਸ ਪਇਆਲ
Kabhū ninḏ cẖinḏ bi▫uhār.Kabhū ūbẖ akās pa▫i▫āl.
At times caught in slandering thoughts for others. At times riding high or lying in deep and low.

ਕਬਹੂ ਬੇਤਾ ਬ੍ਰਹਮ ਬੀਚਾਰ ਨਾਨਕ ਆਪਿ ਮਿਲਾਵਣਹਾਰ ੫॥
Kabhū beṯā barahm bīcẖār.Nānak āp milāvaṇhār. ||5||
At times the contemplator of creator’s knowledge. Nanak, such by self arranges the acquaintance.
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, 5th sabad describe ways of humans and the powerful ways of the creator. Powerless with creator all powerful, follows directions as directed, highs and lows with agony or happiness, human caught in slander at times and feeling high or lowest of low.

Guru ji conclude that great contemplations happen but the creator by self creates such acquaintances.
Please note all errors are mine and I stand corrected.

Sat Sri Akal.
