The saviour from misery and hurt of the poor, the helper of the forlorn. I am at your door creator, holding the coattails of Guru Nanak.



ਅਸਟਪਦੀ
Eight stanzas hymn.

ਜਿਹ ਮਾਰਗ ਕੇ ਗਨੇ ਜਾਹਿ ਕੋਸਾ ਹਰਿ ਕਾ ਨਾਮੁ ਊਹਾ ਸੰਗਿ ਤੋਸਾ
Jih mārag ke gane jāhi na kosā. Har kā nām ūhā sang ṯosā.

The path that may not be measurable in metrics. On such a path the understanding of the creator is the companion.

ਜਿਹ ਪੈਡੈ ਮਹਾ ਅੰਧ ਗੁਬਾਰਾ ਹਰਿ ਕਾ ਨਾਮੁ ਸੰਗਿ ਉਜੀਆਰਾ
Jih paidai mahā anḏẖ gubārā. Har kā nām sang ujī▫ārā.

On a journey full of deep darkness. The creator’s understanding accompanies with brilliance.

ਜਹਾ ਪੰਥਿ ਤੇਰਾ ਕੋ ਸਿਞਾਨੂ ਹਰਿ ਕਾ ਨਾਮੁ ਤਹ ਨਾਲਿ ਪਛਾਨੂ
Jahā panth ṯerā ko na siñānū. Har kā nām ṯah nāl pacẖẖānū.

On a path where no one is your acquaintance. The creator’s understanding will be your witness and company.

ਜਹ ਮਹਾ ਭਇਆਨ ਤਪਤਿ ਬਹੁ ਘਾਮ ਤਹ ਹਰਿ ਕੇ ਨਾਮ ਕੀ ਤੁਮ ਊਪਰਿ ਛਾਮ
Jah mahā bẖa▫i▫ān ṯapaṯ baho gẖām. Ŧah har ke nām kī ṯum ūpar cẖẖām.

Where there is terrible and scorching heat. The creator’s understanding will appear as your shade.

ਜਹਾ ਤ੍ਰਿਖਾ ਮਨ ਤੁਝੁ ਆਕਰਖੈ ਤਹ ਨਾਨਕ ਹਰਿ ਹਰਿ ਅੰਮ੍ਰਿਤੁ ਬਰਖੈ ੪॥
Jahā ṯarikẖā man ṯujẖ ākrakẖai. Ŧah Nānak har har amriṯ barkẖai. ||4||

Where your thirst is gnawing. Guru Nanak, there the creator’s understanding feels like sweet rain.
