ਨਿਰਗੁਨੀਆਰ ਇਆਨਿਆ ਸੋ ਪ੍ਰਭੁ ਸਦਾ ਸਮਾਲਿ ਜਿਨਿ ਕੀਆ ਤਿਸੁ ਚੀਤਿ ਰਖੁ ਨਾਨਕ ਨਿਬਹੀ ਨਾਲਿ ੧॥
Nirgunī▫ār i▫āni▫ā so parabẖ saḏā samāl. Jin kī▫ā ṯis cẖīṯ rakẖ Nānak nibhī nāl. ||1||
The virtue-less and not knowing one, remember the creator always. Remember the one who created, Guru Nanak, as such will sustain throughout.

Asatpaḏī.
Eight stanzas hymn

ਸੁਨਿ ਅੰਧਾ ਕੈਸੇ ਮਾਰਗੁ ਪਾਵੈ ਕਰੁ ਗਹਿ ਲੇਹੁ ਓੜਿ ਨਿਬਹਾਵੈ
Sun anḏẖā kaise mārag pāvai. Kar gėh leho oṛ nibhāvai.
How can blind find the path by listening. Hold the hand till the end destination.

ਕਹਾ ਬੁਝਾਰਤਿ ਬੂਝੈ ਡੋਰਾ ਨਿਸਿ ਕਹੀਐ ਤਉ ਸਮਝੈ ਭੋਰਾ
Kahā bujẖāraṯ būjẖai dorā. Nis kahī▫ai ṯa▫o samjẖai bẖorā.
How can a deaf solve a riddle. You may say night and be so understood as day.

ਕਹਾ ਬਿਸਨਪਦ ਗਾਵੈ ਗੁੰਗ ਜਤਨ ਕਰੈ ਤਉ ਭੀ ਸੁਰ ਭੰਗ
Kahā bisanpaḏ gāvai gung. Jaṯan karai ṯa▫o bẖī sur bẖang.
How can a mute sing creator’s praise. Even with tries the tune stays broken.

ਕਹ ਪਿੰਗੁਲ ਪਰਬਤ ਪਰ ਭਵਨ ਨਹੀ ਹੋਤ ਊਹਾ ਉਸੁ ਗਵਨ
Kah pingul parbaṯ par bẖavan. Nahī hoṯ ūhā us gavan.
How can a cripple roam on a mountain. Such cannot so approach.

ਕਰਤਾਰ ਕਰੁਣਾ ਮੈ ਦੀਨੁ ਬੇਨਤੀ ਕਰੈ ਨਾਨਕ ਤੁਮਰੀ ਕਿਰਪਾ ਤਰੈ ੬॥
Karṯār karuṇā mai ḏīn benṯī karai. Nānak ṯumrī kirpā ṯarai. ||6||
O creator, merciful I make a humble request. Guru Nanak can only swim if you so grace.
ESSENCE: In the salok, Guru ji describe ourselves as spoiled children of the creator. Guru ji say that instead one needs to always remember the creator that sustains in all phases of our lives.

Guru Arjan Dev ji in Astpadi 4, 6th describe in a contrasting of weaknesses and how such can be in the way to understanding. Our inability to see, to listen, to speak and lack of body capabilities focused right.


Guru ji request for a realization and a blessing so one finds the right ways.
Please note all errors are mine and I stand corrected.

Sat Sri Akal.
