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

ਸਰਬ ਕਲਾ ਭਰਪੂਰ ਪ੍ਰਭ ਬਿਰਥਾ ਜਾਨਨਹਾਰ ਜਾ ਕੈ ਸਿਮਰਨਿ ਉਧਰੀਐ ਨਾਨਕ ਤਿਸੁ ਬਲਿਹਾਰ ੧॥
Sarab kalā bẖarpūr parabẖ birthā jānanhār. Jā kai simran uḏẖrī▫ai Nānak ṯis balihār. ||1||
Creator has all power and is knowing of suffering. Nanak forever respectfully appreciates, in contemplation of such we are saved.

ਅਸਟਪਦੀ
Asatpaḏī.
Eight stanzas hymn

ਰੂਪਵੰਤੁ ਹੋਇ ਨਾਹੀ ਮੋਹੈ ਪ੍ਰਭ ਕੀ ਜੋਤਿ ਸਗਲ ਘਟ ਸੋਹੈ
Rūpvanṯ ho▫e nāhī mohai. Parabẖ kī joṯ sagal gẖat sohai.
Being of beauty should not be vain. Essence of the creator is in each body.

ਧਨਵੰਤਾ ਹੋਇ ਕਿਆ ਕੋ ਗਰਬੈ ਜਾ ਸਭੁ ਕਿਛੁ ਤਿਸ ਕਾ ਦੀਆ ਦਰਬੈ
Ḏẖanvanṯā ho▫e ki▫ā ko garbai. Jā sabẖ kicẖẖ ṯis kā ḏī▫ā ḏarbai.
Being wealthy why to be proud. When all wealth has been given by such.

ਅਤਿ ਸੂਰਾ ਜੇ ਕੋਊ ਕਹਾਵੈ ਪ੍ਰਭ ਕੀ ਕਲਾ ਬਿਨਾ ਕਹ ਧਾਵੈ
Aṯ sūrā je ko▫ū kahāvai. Parabẖ kī kalā binā kah ḏẖāvai.
Getting called the bravest. Without creator’s power imbued where would such charge.

ਜੇ ਕੋ ਹੋਇ ਬਹੈ ਦਾਤਾਰੁ ਤਿਸੁ ਦੇਨਹਾਰੁ ਜਾਨੈ ਗਾਵਾਰੁ
Je ko ho▫e bahai ḏāṯār. Ŧis ḏenhār jānai gāvār.
If one is and declares to be philanthropist. Such great giver is recognized as a fool.

ਜਿਸੁ ਗੁਰ ਪ੍ਰਸਾਦਿ ਤੂਟੈ ਹਉ ਰੋਗੁ ਨਾਨਕ ਸੋ ਜਨੁ ਸਦਾ ਅਰੋਗੁ ੨॥
Jis gur parsāḏ ṯūtai ha▫o rog. Nānak so jan saḏā arog. ||2||
One whose ills of ego are remedied by creator’s blessing. Nanak such person is always without malady.
ESSENCE: In the salok, Guru ji describe the creator as all powerful and knowing of all. We are saved in respectful contemplation of such and to be so thankful.

Guru Arjan Dev ji in Astpadi 15, 2nd sabad describe states of pride and vanity. As in being beautiful, wealthy, brave great giver to the needy. Guru ji state that the more important is to recognize the source in the creator that imbues all and and is a basis of all to be had.


Guru ji conclude that with creator’s blessing the malady of ego is cured and one is forever healthy.
Please note all errors are mine and I stand corrected.

Sat Sri Akal.
