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

ਸੰਤ ਸਰਨਿ ਜੋ ਜਨੁ ਪਰੈ ਸੋ ਜਨੁ ਉਧਰਨਹਾਰ ਸੰਤ ਕੀ ਨਿੰਦਾ ਨਾਨਕਾ ਬਹੁਰਿ ਬਹੁਰਿ ਅਵਤਾਰ ੧॥
Sanṯ saran jo jan parai so jan uḏẖranhār. Sanṯ kī ninḏā nānkā bahur bahur avṯār. ||1||
Those who seek humble guidance from the pious, such are saved. Nanak, denigrating the pious encumbers one in repetitive births.

ਅਸਟਪਦੀ
Asatpaḏī.
Eight stanzas hymn

ਸੰਤ ਕਾ ਦੋਖੀ ਅਧ ਬੀਚ ਤੇ ਟੂਟੈ ਸੰਤ ਕਾ ਦੋਖੀ ਕਿਤੈ ਕਾਜਿ ਪਹੂਚੈ
Sanṯ kā ḏokẖī aḏẖ bīcẖ ṯe tūtai. Sanṯ kā ḏokẖī kiṯai kāj na pahūcẖai.
One hurtful of the pious, break apart in the middle. One hurtful of the pious, cannot successfully achieve.

ਸੰਤ ਕੇ ਦੋਖੀ ਕਉ ਉਦਿਆਨ ਭ੍ਰਮਾਈਐ ਸੰਤ ਕਾ ਦੋਖੀ ਉਝੜਿ ਪਾਈਐ
Sanṯ ke ḏokẖī ka▫o uḏi▫ān bẖarmā▫ī▫ai. Sanṯ kā ḏokẖī ujẖaṛ pā▫ī▫ai.
One hurtful of the pious, is sent to baron mountains for wandering. One hurtful of the pious, is led astray into desolated land.

ਸੰਤ ਕਾ ਦੋਖੀ ਅੰਤਰ ਤੇ ਥੋਥਾ ਜਿਉ ਸਾਸ ਬਿਨਾ ਮਿਰਤਕ ਕੀ ਲੋਥਾ
Sanṯ kā ḏokẖī anṯar ṯe thothā. Ji▫o sās binā mirṯak kī lothā.
One hurtful of the pious, is empty inside. Just as the dead body without breathing.

ਸੰਤ ਕੇ ਦੋਖੀ ਕੀ ਜੜ ਕਿਛੁ ਨਾਹਿ ਆਪਨ ਬੀਜਿ ਆਪੇ ਹੀ ਖਾਹਿ
Sanṯ ke ḏokẖī kī jaṛ kicẖẖ nāhi. Āpan bīj āpe hī kẖāhi.
One hurtful of the pious, has no solid grounding. As such sows, such by self consumes.

ਸੰਤ ਕੇ ਦੋਖੀ ਕਉ ਅਵਰੁ ਰਾਖਨਹਾਰੁ ਨਾਨਕ ਸੰਤ ਭਾਵੈ ਤਾ ਲਏ ਉਬਾਰਿ ੫॥
Sanṯ ke ḏokẖī ka▫o avar na rākẖanhār. Nānak sanṯ bẖāvai ṯā la▫e ubār. ||5||
One hurtful of the pious, cannot be saved by anyone else. Nanak, if the pious likes so may save.
ESSENCE: In the salok, Guru ji describe the importance of company of the pious and the futility of denigrating the pious. Salvation comes in the company and restless transformations follow ill will towards the pious.

Guru Arjan Dev ji in Astpadi 13, 5th sabad continue the description of one hurtful of the pious. Such to break apart as in two pieces, unsuccessful, wandering as in baron mountains, found in desolate lands, hollow inside such as dead body without breath, such has no solid grounding and so consumes what such sows.


Guru ji conclude no one can except if the pious wants such to be saved.

NOTE: There is marvelous use of metaphors in this sabad to address and convey the audience of the Guru ji's times. It is a dis-service to turn these around as though Guru ji imply belief in any subject(s) of metaphors.
Please note all errors are mine and I stand corrected.

Sat Sri Akal.

Shabad Vichaar by SPN'ers

This is one of my favourite shabads. Very simple but truly packs a punch with its message. Unfortunately it is not widely known. As previously English literal meanings first, Rawel Singh's...
