Eight stanzas hymn

ਬੇਦਪੁਰਾਨਸਿੰਮ੍ਰਿਤਿਮਹਿਦੇਖੁ ਸਸੀਅਰਸੂਰਨਖ੍ਯ੍ਯਤ੍ਰਮਹਿਏਕੁ
Beḏ purān simriṯ mėh ḏekẖ. Sasī▫ar sūr nakẖ▫yaṯar mėh ek.
Check in the Vedas, Puraanas and the Simritees. Only one in the moon, sun and the stars.

ਬਾਣੀਪ੍ਰਭਕੀਸਭੁਕੋਬੋਲੈ ਆਪਿਅਡੋਲੁਕਬਹੂਡੋਲੈ
Baṇī parabẖ kī sabẖ ko bolai. Āp adol na kabhū dolai.
All so speak creator’s composition. By self unwavering and never wavers.

ਸਰਬਕਲਾਕਰਿਖੇਲੈਖੇਲ ਮੋਲਿਪਾਈਐਗੁਣਹਅਮੋਲ
Sarab kalā kar kẖelai kẖel. Mol na pā▫ī▫ai guṇah amol.
With all the powers so plays the game. Such cannot be valued, virtues beyond value.

ਸਰਬਜੋਤਿਮਹਿਜਾਕੀਜੋਤਿ ਧਾਰਿਰਹਿਓਸੁਆਮੀਓਤਿਪੋਤਿ
Sarab joṯ mėh jā kī joṯ. Ḏẖār rahi▫o su▫āmī oṯ poṯ.
Light of such in all the lights. So supports like fabrication of thread and cloth.

ਗੁਰਪਰਸਾਦਿਭਰਮਕਾਨਾਸੁ ਨਾਨਕਤਿਨਮਹਿਏਹੁਬਿਸਾਸੁ੩॥
Gur parsāḏ bẖaram kā nās. Nānak ṯin mėh ehu bisās. ||3||
With creator’s blessing doubts destroyed. Nanak, so those hold such belief.
ESSENCE: In the salok, Guru ji recognize that inner darkness is wiped with understanding. Such understanding is greatly facilitated through blessing of pious company.

Guru Arjan Dev ji in Astpadi 23, 3rd sabad state that all wisdom points to one creator. One being in the moon and the stars, unwavering playing the games with power. All the infinite virtues cannot be extolled even when all speak of the creator. The creator a light among all and all as though a threaded fabric manifestation.


Guru ji conclude that doubts are removed and belief strengthened through creator’s blessing.
Please note all errors are mine and I stand corrected.

Sat Sri Akal.
