One such in mind yearning for the supreme creator. Nanak such person gets no ills.
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, 4th sabad review the mindset of a person so fortunate to link to the creator. Self realizing and so quenches the thirst for knowing, company of the pious and focus on creator’s virtues removes ills, worldly traps so avoided in trust of one creator,


Guru ji conclude that that a mind that has hunger for the creator’s understanding, such does not attract ills.
