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॥

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.

Eight stanzas hymn

ਬਡਭਾਗੀ ਤੇ ਜਨ ਜਗ ਮਾਹਿ ਸਦਾ ਸਦਾ ਹਰਿ ਕੇ ਗੁਨ ਗਾਹਿ
Badbẖāgī ṯe jan jag māhi. Saḏā saḏā har ke gun gāhi.
So fortunate are such people in the world. Who always and always sing of creator’s virtues.

ਰਾਮ ਨਾਮ ਜੋ ਕਰਹਿ ਬੀਚਾਰ ਸੇ ਧਨਵੰਤ ਗਨੀ ਸੰਸਾਰ
Rām nām jo karahi bīcẖār. Se ḏẖanvanṯ ganī sansār.
Those who contemplate upon the creator. Such are the wealthy and content in the world.

ਮਨਿ ਤਨਿ ਮੁਖਿ ਬੋਲਹਿ ਹਰਿ ਮੁਖੀ ਸਦਾ ਸਦਾ ਜਾਨਹੁ ਤੇ ਸੁਖੀ
Man ṯan mukẖ bolėh har mukẖī. Saḏā saḏā jānhu ṯe sukẖī.
Speaking of the creator from mind, body and mouth. Ever and ever know these to be in comfort.

ਏਕੋ ਏਕੁ ਏਕੁ ਪਛਾਨੈ ਇਤ ਉਤ ਕੀ ਓਹੁ ਸੋਝੀ ਜਾਨੈ
Ėko ek ek pacẖẖānai. Iṯ uṯ kī oh sojẖī jānai.
Only one and recognizing the only one. Such understand the here and hereafter.

ਨਾਮ ਸੰਗਿ ਜਿਸ ਕਾ ਮਨੁ ਮਾਨਿਆ ਨਾਨਕ ਤਿਨਹਿ ਨਿਰੰਜਨੁ ਜਾਨਿਆ ੩॥
Nām sang jis kā man māni▫ā. Nānak ṯinėh niranjan jāni▫ā. ||3||
One whose mind finds closeness with the creator. Nanak, such has recognized the creator.
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, 3rd sabad wonderfully describe the means and approach to being one with the creator. Always voicing creator’s virtues, contemplating upon the creator, those fortunate who by mind, body and by mouth recognize the but one creator are always in comfort.


Guru ji conclude that finding closeness with the creator is knowing the creator.

SPECIAL NOTE: This sabad unequivocally guides that being close to the creator in being or living is knowing the creator. Being is discovering virtues of the creator, contemplating on virtues of the creator, living in virtues of the creator and there is no one methodology or path that is going to give us a short cut. It is an always aware, understanding and living thereof in closeness that Guru ji guide us towards.
Please note all errors are mine and I stand corrected.

Sat Sri Akal.
