Eight stanzas hymn

ਧਨਵੰਤਾ ਹੋਇ ਕਰਿ ਗਰਬਾਵੈ ਤ੍ਰਿਣ ਸਮਾਨਿ ਕਛੁ ਸੰਗਿ ਜਾਵੈ
Ḏẖanvanṯā ho▫e kar garbāvai. Ŧariṇ samān kacẖẖ sang na jāvai.
Being very wealthy and feeling so proud. Not a dried blade of grass will so accompany such.

ਬਹੁ ਲਸਕਰ ਮਾਨੁਖ ਊਪਰਿ ਕਰੇ ਆਸ ਪਲ ਭੀਤਰਿ ਤਾ ਕਾ ਹੋਇ ਬਿਨਾਸ
Baho laskar mānukẖ ūpar kare ās. Pal bẖīṯar ṯā kā ho▫e binās.
Lot of armaments and people one may place hopes on. In a moment such are destroyed.

ਸਭ ਤੇ ਆਪ ਜਾਨੈ ਬਲਵੰਤੁ ਖਿਨ ਮਹਿ ਹੋਇ ਜਾਇ ਭਸਮੰਤੁ
Sabẖ ṯe āp jānai balvanṯ. Kẖin mėh ho▫e jā▫e bẖasmanṯ.
Thinking of self as strongest of all. In an instant such is reduced to ashes.

ਕਿਸੈ ਬਦੈ ਆਪਿ ਅਹੰਕਾਰੀ ਧਰਮ ਰਾਇ ਤਿਸੁ ਕਰੇ ਖੁਆਰੀ
Kisai na baḏai āp ahaʼnkārī. Ḏẖaram rā▫e ṯis kare kẖu▫ārī.
Disregarding all and centric in self ego. The judge of deeds will rebuke strongly.

ਗੁਰ ਪ੍ਰਸਾਦਿ ਜਾ ਕਾ ਮਿਟੈ ਅਭਿਮਾਨੁ ਸੋ ਜਨੁ ਨਾਨਕ ਦਰਗਹ ਪਰਵਾਨੁ ੨॥
Gur parsāḏ jā kā mitai abẖimān. So jan Nānak ḏargėh parvān. ||2||
Through creator’s blessing ego is erased. Nanak such is so accepted in creator’s abode.
ESSENCE: In the salok, Guru ji state that mild mannered humble and selfless live in comfort while the ego centric have a life rotten by ego.

Guru Arjan Dev ji in Astpadi 12, 2nd sabad describe human manifestations of pride and ego. Be it wealth, strength in commanding armies, feeling as strongest of all and disregard of all. Guru ji state that much of such can change in a moment like riches, strength and pride to ashes.


Guru ji conclude that the blessed one’s erase pride and ego to be so accepted in the abode of the creator.
Please note all errors are mine and I stand corrected.

Sat Sri Akal.
