In the mind with such belief so held. Nanak has understood the only one creator.
ESSENCE: In the salok, Guru ji recognize the one and only creator, master of all life and interacting with all.

Guru Arjan Dev ji in Astpadi 22, 3rd sabad describe virtues and show praise for one creator. The only one so benevolent and omni-present, knowing of everyone’s heart, remembers and nurtures all. In loving closeness as blessed, the one’s display contemplation and sing praises.


Guru ji conclude that with this understanding only one creator he has so recognized.
Please note all errors are mine and I stand corrected.
