Eight stanzas hymn

ਸਰਬਭੂਤਆਪਿਵਰਤਾਰਾ ਸਰਬਨੈਨਆਪਿਪੇਖਨਹਾਰਾ
Sarab bẖūṯ āp varṯārā. Sarab nain āp pekẖanhārā.
Carrying out in all living by self. Through all eyes, such one that so sees by self.

ਸਗਲਸਮਗ੍ਰੀਜਾਕਾਤਨਾ ਆਪਨਜਸੁਆਪਹੀਸੁਨਾ
Sagal samagrī jā kā ṯanā. Āpan jas āp hī sunā.
All of creation is body of such. Self praise listening by self.

ਆਵਨਜਾਨੁਇਕੁਖੇਲੁਬਨਾਇਆ ਆਗਿਆਕਾਰੀਕੀਨੀਮਾਇਆ
Āvan jān ik kẖel banā▫i▫ā. Āgi▫ākārī kīnī mā▫i▫ā.
Birth and of death as though a game. Obedient so the worldly possessions.

ਸਭਕੈਮਧਿਅਲਿਪਤੋਰਹੈ ਜੋਕਿਛੁਕਹਣਾਸੁਆਪੇਕਹੈ
Sabẖ kai maḏẖ alipaṯo rahai. Jo kicẖẖ kahṇā so āpe kahai.
In the midst of all, stays unattached. What wants to say, such says by self.

ਆਗਿਆਆਵੈਆਗਿਆਜਾਇ ਨਾਨਕਜਾਭਾਵੈਤਾਲਏਸਮਾਇ੬॥
Āgi▫ā āvai āgi▫ā jā▫e. Nānak jā bẖāvai ṯā la▫e samā▫e. ||6||
With permission born, with permission die. Nanak, if such so wishes, can absorb within.
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, 6th sabad describe the permeation of the creator in all and activities of all. Carrying out in all, seeing through all, listening through all and as such in all and through all. The birth and death is just a game and worldly temptations so under control of such. In the midst of all being self detached and so such conveys.


Guru ji conclude that as permitted one comes and goes and if so wished by the creator, one gets assimilated.
Please note all errors are mine and I stand corrected.

Sat Sri Akal.
