Salok (Core theme of eight sabads/hymns in the Astpadi)


ਮਨਿ ਸਾਚਾ ਮੁਖਿ ਸਾਚਾ ਸੋਇ ਅਵਰੁ ਪੇਖੈ ਏਕਸੁ ਬਿਨੁ ਕੋਇ
Man sācẖā mukẖ sācẖā so▫e. Avar na pekẖai ekas bin ko▫e.
One whose mind is pure, only can such can utter pure. None is seen other than one creator.

ਨਾਨਕ ਇਹ ਲਛਣ ਬ੍ਰਹਮ ਗਿਆਨੀ ਹੋਇ ੧॥
Nānak ih lacẖẖaṇ barahm gi▫ānī ho▫e. ||1||
Nanak, these are the attributes of such most learned

ਅਸਟਪਦੀ
Asatpaḏī.
Eight stanzas hymn

ਬ੍ਰਹਮ ਗਿਆਨੀ ਸਦਾ ਨਿਰਲੇਪ ਜੈਸੇ ਜਲ ਮਹਿ ਕਮਲ ਅਲੇਪ
Barahm gi▫ānī saḏā nirlep. Jaise jal mėh kamal alep.
Most learned is always untainted. Just like the lotus flower in water.

ਬ੍ਰਹਮ ਗਿਆਨੀ ਸਦਾ ਨਿਰਦੋਖ ਜੈਸੇ ਸੂਰੁ ਸਰਬ ਕਉ ਸੋਖ
Barahm gi▫ānī saḏā nirḏokẖ. Jaise sūr sarab ka▫o sokẖ.
Most learned is without bad deeds. Just as the sun dries out all.

ਬ੍ਰਹਮ ਗਿਆਨੀ ਕੈ ਦ੍ਰਿਸਟਿ ਸਮਾਨਿ ਜੈਸੇ ਰਾਜ ਰੰਕ ਕਉ ਲਾਗੈ ਤੁਲਿ ਪਵਾਨ
Barahm gi▫ānī kai ḏarisat samān. Jaise rāj rank ka▫o lāgai ṯul pavān.
Most learned sees all as equals. Just like the air which feels the same to a king or poor.

ਬ੍ਰਹਮ ਗਿਆਨੀ ਕੈ ਧੀਰਜੁ ਏਕ ਜਿਉ ਬਸੁਧਾ ਕੋਊ ਖੋਦੈ ਕੋਊ ਚੰਦਨ ਲੇਪ
Barahm gi▫ānī kai ḏẖīraj ek. Ji▫o basuḏẖā ko▫ū kẖoḏai ko▫ū cẖanḏan lep.
Most learned is unwavering. Just as the earth is tilled by one and painted with sandal paste by other.

ਬ੍ਰਹਮ ਗਿਆਨੀ ਕਾ ਇਹੈ ਗੁਨਾਉ ਨਾਨਕ ਜਿਉ ਪਾਵਕ ਕਾ ਸਹਜ ਸੁਭਾਉ ੧॥
Barahm gi▫ānī kā ihai gunā▫o. Nānak ji▫o pāvak kā sahj subẖā▫o. ||1||
Most learned has this quality. Nanak as fire so naturally prevails.
ESSENCE: In the salok, Guru ji talk about the esteemed wise. One with pure mind, pure speech and recognizing of but one creator.

Guru Arjan Dev ji in Astpadi 8, 1st stanza describe and further elaborate on the qualities of the esteemed wise. The esteemed wise is untainted with what surrounds, is impartial and sees all as equals without status, unwavering in all forms.


Guru ji conclude such are the qualities of esteemed wise and so naturally such one prevails.
Please note all errors are mine and I stand corrected.

Sat Sri Akal.

SAT SRI AKAAL,


ਮਨਿ ਸਾਚਾ ਮੁਖਿ ਸਾਚਾ ਸੋਇ ਅਵਰੁ ਪੇਖੈ ਏਕਸੁ ਬਿਨੁ ਕੋਇ
Man sācẖā mukẖ sācẖā so▫e. Avar na pekẖai ekas bin ko▫e.
One whose mind is pure, only can such can utter pure. None is seen other than one creator.

Only that mind/speech is truth, who realise "one" creator in all that appears



ਨਾਨਕ ਇਹ ਲਛਣ ਬ੍ਰਹਮ ਗਿਆਨੀ ਹੋਇ ੧॥
Nānak ih lacẖẖaṇ barahm gi▫ānī ho▫e. ||1||
Nanak, these are the attributes of such most learned
