In the company of the pious, one can discover everywhere. Nanak, with the pious, life becomes complete.

ESSENCE: In the salok, Guru ji state the infiniteness of the creator and enormous value in of knowing so for salvation. Guru ji find the company and the virtues of the pious as being with the likeness of creator.

Guru Arjan Dev ji in Astpadi 7, 5th stanza state the effects of company of the pious not only on self but family and community. Highest perceived functions come to be of service to the one in company of the pious whether worldly or spiritual centric.Bad is minimized and good gets so accentuated.


Guru ji conclude that in the company of the pious there are no limits to discovery and life becomes complete.
Please note all errors are mine and I stand corrected.

Sat Sri Akal.
