Man ṯan rang raṯe rang ekai. Nānak jan kai biraṯ bibekai. ||5||

The body and mind of the humble are colored in the understanding of the creator. Guru Nanak, the pious develop acumen to differentiate good and bad.

ESSENCE: In the salok, Guru ji sets the objective of discourse in Astpadi 2. In understanding of the creator solutions are found for the forsaken, deserted, in misery and in sickness. Guru ji humbly submit to the aware company of the creator.

Guru Arjan Dev ji state in Astpadi 2nd, 5th sabad describe the goodness of understanding the creator. The give examples of a simple person to the very learned as understanding is a boon to all.


Body and mind so imbued with such understanding one develops faculties to see good versus bad and so put in practice.
