Eight stanzas hymn

ਗੁਰ ਕੈ ਗ੍ਰਿਹਿ ਸੇਵਕੁ ਜੋ ਰਹੈ ਗੁਰ ਕੀ ਆਗਿਆ ਮਨ ਮਹਿ ਸਹੈ
Gur kai garihi sevak jo rahai. Gur kī āgi▫ā man mėh sahai.
Humble servant that stays in creator’s abode. Accepts creator’s direction in mind.

ਆਪਸ ਕਉ ਕਰਿ ਕਛੁ ਜਨਾਵੈ ਹਰਿ ਹਰਿ ਨਾਮੁ ਰਿਦੈ ਸਦ ਧਿਆਵੈ
Āpas ka▫o kar kacẖẖ na janāvai. Har har nām riḏai saḏ ḏẖi▫āvai.
Does not try to prove self to be something. Reflects on creator and just the creator in heart.

ਮਨੁ ਬੇਚੈ ਸਤਿਗੁਰ ਕੈ ਪਾਸਿ ਤਿਸੁ ਸੇਵਕ ਕੇ ਕਾਰਜ ਰਾਸਿ
Man becẖai saṯgur kai pās. Ŧis sevak ke kāraj rās.
Sells one’s mind to the eternal creator. All endeavors of such humble servant are successful.

ਸੇਵਾ ਕਰਤ ਹੋਇ ਨਿਹਕਾਮੀ ਤਿਸ ਕਉ ਹੋਤ ਪਰਾਪਤਿ ਸੁਆਮੀ
Sevā karaṯ ho▫e nihkāmī. Ŧis ka▫o hoṯ parāpaṯ su▫āmī.
In doing service without expectations. Such so receives the master.

ਅਪਨੀ ਕ੍ਰਿਪਾ ਜਿਸੁ ਆਪਿ ਕਰੇਇ ਨਾਨਕ ਸੋ ਸੇਵਕੁ ਗੁਰ ਕੀ ਮਤਿ ਲੇਇ ੨॥
Apnī kirpā jis āp kare▫i. Nānak so sevak gur kī maṯ le▫e. ||2||
Self bliss that so endowed to such by self. Nanak, such a humble servant has received creator’s wisdom.
ESSENCE: In the salok, Guru ji state that those who recognize the true one, will know it to be the eternal creator. Company of such people saves one from ills and so sing the virtues of the creator .

Guru Arjan Dev ji in Astpadi 18, 2nd sabad describe the effects of being in service to the creator. Live as though in creator’s abode and so following such direction, humbly keeping creator in the heart, so relinquishes self to the creator and all falls in place. Through such service without expecting rewards the creator is discovered.


Guru ji conclude that creator’s wisdom is received through rewarding grace of the creator.
Please note all errors are mine and I stand corrected.

Sat Sri Akal.
