ਬਹੁ ਸਾਸਤ੍ਰ ਬਹੁ ਸਿਮ੍ਰਿਤੀ ਪੇਖੇ ਸਰਬ ਢਢੋਲਿ ਪੂਜਸਿ ਨਾਹੀ ਹਰਿ ਹਰੇ ਨਾਨਕ ਨਾਮ ਅਮੋਲ ੧॥

Baho sāsṯar baho simriṯī pekẖe sarab dẖadẖol. Pūjas nāhī har hare Nānak nām amol. ||1||
Many holy books and treatises have been researched. Guru Nanak, nothing comes close to the understanding of the creator or be so valued.

ਅਸਟਪਦੀ
Asatpaḏī.

Eight stanzas hymn.

ਸਰਬ ਧਰਮ ਮਹਿ ਸ੍ਰੇਸਟ ਧਰਮੁ ਹਰਿ ਕੋ ਨਾਮੁ ਜਪਿ ਨਿਰਮਲ ਕਰਮੁ
Sarab ḏẖaram mėh saresat ḏẖaram. Har ko nām jap nirmal karam.

Of all religions the best religion is. Understand creator’s virtues and be good in deeds.

ਸਗਲ ਕ੍ਰਿਆ ਮਹਿ ਊਤਮ ਕਿਰਿਆ ਸਾਧਸੰਗਿ ਦੁਰਮਤਿ ਮਲੁ ਹਿਰਿਆ
Sagal kir▫ā mėh ūṯam kiri▫ā. Sāḏẖsang ḏurmaṯ mal hiri▫ā.

Of all religious rituals the best action is. Be in the company of pious and wise and cleanse your thinking.

ਸਗਲ ਉਦਮ ਮਹਿ ਉਦਮੁ ਭਲਾ ਹਰਿ ਕਾ ਨਾਮੁ ਜਪਹੁ ਜੀਅ ਸਦਾ
Sagal uḏam mėh uḏam bẖalā. Har kā nām japahu jī▫a saḏā.

Of all efforts the most beneficial effort is. To be understanding aware of the creator always.

ਸਗਲ ਬਾਨੀ ਮਹਿ ਅੰਮ੍ਰਿਤ ਬਾਨੀ ਹਰਿ ਕੋ ਜਸੁ ਸੁਨਿ ਰਸਨ ਬਖਾਨੀ
Sagal bānī mėh amriṯ bānī. Har ko jas sun rasan bakẖānī.

Of all scriptures the everlasting scripture is. Hear creator’s virtues and with the tongue speak creator’s virtues.

ਸਗਲ ਥਾਨ ਤੇ ਓਹੁ ਊਤਮ ਥਾਨੁ ਨਾਨਕ ਜਿਹ ਘਟਿ ਵਸੈ ਹਰਿ ਨਾਮੁ ੮॥੩॥
Sagal thān ṯe oh ūṯam thān. Nānak jih gẖat vasai har nām. ||8||3||

Of all places the one that is the most esteemed is. Guru Nanak, the heart where creator’s understanding resides.
ESSENCE: In the salok, Guru ji sets the objective of discourse in Astpadi 3. In searching the available religious wisdom, following their recommendations, Guru ji state that nothing comes close to the seeking of creator’s understanding which is invaluable.

Guru Arjan Dev ji in Astpadi 3rd, 8th sabad describe the highest of high in religious thought, rituals, efforts, writings and the persona. It is all centric in being in the company of those who are, and by self be ever aware in the virtues and understanding of the creator.
Please note all errors are mine and I stand corrected.

With this post I will pause till January 2nd, 2012 and start with posting of Astpadi 4th. May all have a wonderful healthy, happy and prosperous 2012.

Sat Sri Akal.
