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.

ਅਸਟਪਦੀ
Asatpaḏī.
Eight stanzas hymn

ਸੰਗਿ ਸਹਾਈ ਸੁ ਆਵੈ ਚੀਤਿ ਜੋ ਬੈਰਾਈ ਤਾ ਸਿਉ ਪ੍ਰੀਤਿ
Sang sahā▫ī so āvai na cẖīṯ. Jo bairā▫ī ṯā si▫o parīṯ.
One with and helpful is not remembered. One who is enemy is loved.

ਬਲੂਆ ਕੇ ਗ੍ਰਿਹ ਭੀਤਰਿ ਬਸੈ ਅਨਦ ਕੇਲ ਮਾਇਆ ਰੰਗਿ ਰਸੈ
Balū▫ā ke garih bẖīṯar basai. Anaḏ kel mā▫i▫ā rang rasai.
Living in a sand house. Enjoys worldly possessions and pleasures.

ਦ੍ਰਿੜੁ ਕਰਿ ਮਾਨੈ ਮਨਹਿ ਪ੍ਰਤੀਤਿ ਕਾਲੁ ਆਵੈ ਮੂੜੇ ਚੀਤਿ
Ḏariṛ kar mānai manėh parṯīṯ. Kāl na āvai mūṛe cẖīṯ.
Strongly believes in mind such to be permanent. The foolish mind never thinks of death.

ਬੈਰ ਬਿਰੋਧ ਕਾਮ ਕ੍ਰੋਧ ਮੋਹ ਝੂਠ ਬਿਕਾਰ ਮਹਾ ਲੋਭ ਧ੍ਰੋਹ
Bair biroḏẖ kām kroḏẖ moh. Jẖūṯẖ bikār mahā lobẖ ḏẖaroh.
Enmity, conflict, lust, anger, attachment. Falsehood, bad deeds, much greed, deceit.

ਇਆਹੂ ਜੁਗਤਿ ਬਿਹਾਨੇ ਕਈ ਜਨਮ ਨਾਨਕ ਰਾਖਿ ਲੇਹੁ ਆਪਨ ਕਰਿ ਕਰਮ ੭॥
I▫āhū jugaṯ bihāne ka▫ī janam. Nānak rākẖ leho āpan kar karam. ||7||
In such ways many spent their lives. Guru Nanak, creator save through your benevolence.
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, 7th sabad emphasize that one is engrossed in the temporary, living in make believe, entangled in enmity, conflict, lust, anger, attachment, falsehood, greed and deceit. Such do not sustain and many have spent their lives in this mode. Guru ji pray that the benevolent one still save one such.
Please note all errors are mine and I stand corrected.

Sat Sri Akal.
