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

ਤਜਹੁ ਸਿਆਨਪ ਸੁਰਿ ਜਨਹੁ ਸਿਮਰਹੁ ਹਰਿ ਹਰਿ ਰਾਇ ਏਕ ਆਸ ਹਰਿ ਮਨਿ ਰਖਹੁ ਨਾਨਕ ਦੂਖੁ ਭਰਮੁ ਭਉ ਜਾਇ ੧॥
Ŧajahu si▫ānap sur janhu simrahu har har rā▫e. Ėk ās har man rakẖahu Nānak ḏūkẖ bẖaram bẖa▫o jā▫e. ||1||
Good people leave cleverness and contemplate on the creator lord and king. Expect of one creator in the mind; ills, doubt and fear will leave.

ਅਸਟਪਦੀ
Asatpaḏī.
Eight stanzas hymn

ਉਸਤਤਿ ਮਨ ਮਹਿ ਕਰਿ ਨਿਰੰਕਾਰ ਕਰਿ ਮਨ ਮੇਰੇ ਸਤਿ ਬਿਉਹਾਰ
Usṯaṯ man mėh kar nirankār. Kar man mere saṯ bi▫uhār.
Praise the formless in your mind. My mind, do the true vocation.

ਨਿਰਮਲ ਰਸਨਾ ਅੰਮ੍ਰਿਤੁ ਪੀਉ ਸਦਾ ਸੁਹੇਲਾ ਕਰਿ ਲੇਹਿ ਜੀਉ
Nirmal rasnā amriṯ pī▫o. Saḏā suhelā kar lehi jī▫o.
Pure my mind be the tongue in drink of purest essence. Make your soul comfortable forever.

ਨੈਨਹੁ ਪੇਖੁ ਠਾਕੁਰ ਕਾ ਰੰਗੁ ਸਾਧਸੰਗਿ ਬਿਨਸੈ ਸਭ ਸੰਗੁ
Nainhu pekẖ ṯẖākur kā rang. Sāḏẖsang binsai sabẖ sang.
With your eyes, see the creator’s play. With company of the pious, lose need for all other company.

ਚਰਨ ਚਲਉ ਮਾਰਗਿ ਗੋਬਿੰਦ ਮਿਟਹਿ ਪਾਪ ਜਪੀਐ ਹਰਿ ਬਿੰਦ
Cẖaran cẖala▫o mārag gobinḏ. Mitėh pāp japī▫ai har binḏ.
With your feet, walk the path of the creator. With a momentary contemplation of the creator, perniciousness is dissipated.

ਕਰ ਹਰਿ ਕਰਮ ਸ੍ਰਵਨਿ ਹਰਿ ਕਥਾ ਹਰਿ ਦਰਗਹ ਨਾਨਕ ਊਜਲ ਮਥਾ ੨॥
Kar har karam sarvan har kathā. Har ḏargėh Nānak ūjal mathā. ||2||
With your hands do deeds for creator, with the ears listen to discourse of creator, Nanak, in creator’s abode so the face will so be radiant.
ESSENCE: In the salok, Guru ji say that cleverness is not needed to understand the creator. The linking to one creator removes ills, doubt and fear.

Guru Arjan Dev ji in Astpadi 14, 2nd sabad guide as to our awareness and recognition of one creator. Always in mind and a true purpose, speak the purity and find comfort, see the creator and get ever sufficient company of the pious, walk the path of the creator and malice will dissipate.


Guru ji conclude that do the deeds and contemplate to so be the uplifted shining persona to the end.
Please note all errors are mine and I stand corrected.

Sat Sri Akal.
