Such comfortable here and happy hereafter. Nanak, supreme creator has so enjoins with self.
ESSENCE: In the salok, Guru ji recognize the one and only creator, master of all life and interacting with all.

Guru ji conclude that this understanding makes us comfortable here and hereafter. This blessing so comes from the creator by self.
Please note all errors are mine and I stand corrected.
