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, 8th and final sabad in this Astpadi praise the virtuous of humble disposition. Such stays in comfort through understanding, creator appears so enjoined, one of true wealth, nobility and honor. Birth of such a joyous moment, as they find salvation and help others. With creator embodied in their heart others in company so benefit too in remembering the creator.


Guru ji conclude many a salute to such one, who frees self and helps others to set free.
Please note all errors are mine and I stand corrected.

Sat Sri Akal.
