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

ਜਿਨ ਪ੍ਰਭੁ ਜਾਤਾ ਸੁ ਸੋਭਾਵੰਤ ਸਗਲ ਸੰਸਾਰੁ ਉਧਰੈ ਤਿਨ ਮੰਤ
Jin parabẖ jāṯā so sobẖāvanṯ. Sagal sansār uḏẖrai ṯin manṯ.
Those who recognize the creator, such are praiseworthy. Whole world is saved through their teachings.

ਪ੍ਰਭ ਕੇ ਸੇਵਕ ਸਗਲ ਉਧਾਰਨ ਪ੍ਰਭ ਕੇ ਸੇਵਕ ਦੂਖ ਬਿਸਾਰਨ
Parabẖ ke sevak sagal uḏẖāran. Parabẖ ke sevak ḏūkẖ bisāran.
Humble servants of the creator save all. Humble servants of the creator get one to forget ills.

ਆਪੇ ਮੇਲਿ ਲਏ ਕਿਰਪਾਲ ਗੁਰ ਕਾ ਸਬਦੁ ਜਪਿ ਭਏ ਨਿਹਾਲ
Āpe mel la▫e kirpāl. Gur kā sabaḏ jap bẖa▫e nihāl.
By self such graceful creator provides realization. Contemplating the creator’s wisdom such becomes ecstatic.

ਉਨ ਕੀ ਸੇਵਾ ਸੋਈ ਲਾਗੈ ਜਿਸ ਨੋ ਕ੍ਰਿਪਾ ਕਰਹਿ ਬਡਭਾਗੈ
Un kī sevā so▫ī lāgai. Jis no kirpā karahi badbẖāgai.
Only such serve those. One who is so blessed with good fortune.

ਨਾਮੁ ਜਪਤ ਪਾਵਹਿ ਬਿਸ੍ਰਾਮੁ ਨਾਨਕ ਤਿਨ ਪੁਰਖ ਕਉ ਊਤਮ ਕਰਿ ਮਾਨੁ ੭॥
Nām japaṯ pāvahi bisrām. Nānak ṯin purakẖ ka▫o ūṯam kar mān. ||7||
Contemplating the understanding, finds unwavering calmness. Nanak, believe such people to be most noble.
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, 7th sabad describe the fortunate, the knowing and at service to the creator. Such are praiseworthy as world helped through them, such save and help, they show ecstasy in knowing of the creator, one’s who recognize such people are also very fortunate.


Guru ji conclude that contemplating such people find unwavering calm and these people should be so held in esteem.
Please note all errors are mine and I stand corrected.

Sat Sri Akal.
