ਨਿਰਗੁਨੁ ਆਪਿ ਸਰਗੁਨੁ ਭੀ ਓਹੀ ਕਲਾ ਧਾਰਿ ਜਿਨਿ ਸਗਲੀ ਮੋਹੀ
Nirgun āp sargun bẖī ohī. Kalā ḏẖār jin saglī mohī.
By self without entanglements of worldly possessions, also with worldly possessions. Having established the power, such got the whole world so attracted.

ਅਪਨੇ ਚਰਿਤ ਪ੍ਰਭਿ ਆਪਿ ਬਨਾਏ ਅਪੁਨੀ ਕੀਮਤਿ ਆਪੇ ਪਾਏ
Apne cẖariṯ parabẖ āp banā▫e. Apunī kīmaṯ āpe pā▫e.
Creator created manifestations of self by self. Has done valuation of self by self.

ਹਰਿ ਬਿਨੁ ਦੂਜਾ ਨਾਹੀ ਕੋਇ ਸਰਬ ਨਿਰੰਤਰਿ ਏਕੋ ਸੋਇ
Har bin ḏūjā nāhī ko▫e. Sarab niranṯar eko so▫e.
No one besides the creator. One such imbued in all.

ਓਤਿ ਪੋਤਿ ਰਵਿਆ ਰੂਪ ਰੰਗ ਭਏ ਪ੍ਰਗਾਸ ਸਾਧ ਕੈ ਸੰਗ
Oṯ poṯ ravi▫ā rūp rang. Bẖa▫e pargās sāḏẖ kai sang.
Present in all forms like thread and cloth. Such enlightenment comes in the company of the pious.

ਰਚਿ ਰਚਨਾ ਅਪਨੀ ਕਲ ਧਾਰੀ ਅਨਿਕ ਬਾਰ ਨਾਨਕ ਬਲਿਹਾਰੀ ੮॥੧੮॥
Racẖ racẖnā apnī kal ḏẖārī. Anik bār Nānak balihārī. ||8||18||
Creating creation embedded self creativity. Nanak, in adoration many times over.
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, 8th and final sabad describe the creator as the great director and manager in creation. With or without association with worldly possessions, many manifestations and only self knows value, one imbued in all, in the company of the pious one gets understanding of the ways and forms.


Guru ji conclude to be in awe and in respect of the creative creation of the creator.
Please note all errors are mine and I stand corrected.

Sat Sri Akal.
