Eight stanzas hymn

ਇਸਤੇਹੋਇਸੁਨਾਹੀਬੁਰਾ ਓਰੈਕਹਹੁਕਿਨੈਕਛੁਕਰਾ
Is ṯe ho▫e so nāhī burā. Orai kahhu kinai kacẖẖ karā.
What such does, such never bad. Without such, say, someone has done something.

ਆਪਿਭਲਾਕਰਤੂਤਿਅਤਿਨੀਕੀ ਆਪੇਜਾਨੈਅਪਨੇਜੀਕੀ
Āp bẖalā karṯūṯ aṯ nīkī. Āpe jānai apne jī kī.
Self so good, so good are the deeds. So knows of what is in own self heart.

ਆਪਿਸਾਚੁਧਾਰੀਸਭਸਾਚੁ ਓਤਿਪੋਤਿਆਪਨਸੰਗਿਰਾਚੁ
Āp sācẖ ḏẖārī sabẖ sācẖ. Oṯ poṯ āpan sang rācẖ.
Self eternal, creation so eternally created. So enshrined like thread and cloth.

ਤਾਕੀਗਤਿਮਿਤਿਕਹੀਜਾਇ ਦੂਸਰਹੋਇਸੋਝੀਪਾਇ
Ŧā kī gaṯ miṯ kahī na jā▫e. Ḏūsar ho▫e ṯa sojẖī pā▫e.
What is such like, how big, so cannot be described. If was Second so similar, may have understood.

ਤਿਸਕਾਕੀਆਸਭੁਪਰਵਾਨੁ ਗੁਰਪ੍ਰਸਾਦਿਨਾਨਕਇਹੁਜਾਨੁ੭॥
Ŧis kā kī▫ā sabẖ parvān. Gur parsāḏ Nānak ih jān. ||7||
Must accept as so does. With creator’s blessing, Nanak so understand this.
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, 7th sabad describe that all that happens is per the creator. All is for good, who has the power to do anyways besides the creator. All is like a perfectly woven fabric with only the creator capable of knowing the details. Additionally as one needs to be like one to understand, the full understanding of creator being just one cannot be gained.


Guru ji conclude that acceptance of all from creator is recognized by those so blessed to understand.
Please note all errors are mine and I stand corrected.

Sat Sri Akal.
