ਸਲੋਕੁ
Salok.
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 ਕੀ ਕੀਮਤਿ ਨਾਹਿ ਬ੍ਰਹਮ ਗਿਆਨੀ ਕੈ ਸਗਲ ਮਨ ਮਾਹਿ
Barahm gi▫ānī kī kīmaṯ nāhi. Barahm gi▫ānī kai sagal man māhi.
Most learned cannot be assigned a price. Most learned embodies all good within the mind.

ਬ੍ਰਹਮ ਗਿਆਨੀ ਕਾ ਕਉਨ ਜਾਨੈ ਭੇਦੁ ਬ੍ਰਹਮ ਗਿਆਨੀ ਕਉ ਸਦਾ ਅਦੇਸੁ
Barahm gi▫ānī kā ka▫un jānai bẖeḏ. Barahm gi▫ānī ka▫o saḏā aḏes.
Who can find clues to the most learned. Most learned be always bowed to.

ਬ੍ਰਹਮ ਗਿਆਨੀ ਕਾ ਕਥਿਆ ਜਾਇ ਅਧਾਖ੍ਯ੍ਯਰੁ ਬ੍ਰਹਮ ਗਿਆਨੀ ਸਰਬ ਕਾ ਠਾਕੁਰੁ
Barahm gi▫ānī kā kathi▫ā na jā▫e aḏẖākẖ▫yar. Barahm gi▫ānī sarab kā ṯẖākur.
Most learned described enough and still will be half a letter worth. Most learned is master of all.

ਬ੍ਰਹਮ ਗਿਆਨੀ ਕੀ ਮਿਤਿ ਕਉਨੁ ਬਖਾਨੈ ਬ੍ਰਹਮ ਗਿਆਨੀ ਕੀ ਗਤਿ ਬ੍ਰਹਮ ਗਿਆਨੀ ਜਾਨੈ
Barahm gi▫ānī kī miṯ ka▫un bakẖānai. Barahm gi▫ānī kī gaṯ barahm gi▫ānī jānai.
Who can describe limits of the most learned. Most learned can only be known by such most learned.

ਬ੍ਰਹਮ ਗਿਆਨੀ ਕਾ ਅੰਤੁ ਪਾਰੁ ਨਾਨਕ ਬ੍ਰਹਮ ਗਿਆਨੀ ਕਉ ਸਦਾ ਨਮਸਕਾਰੁ ੭॥
Barahm gi▫ānī kā anṯ na pār. Nānak barahm gi▫ānī ka▫o saḏā namaskār. ||7||
Most learned has no defined limits. Nanak, always most humble salute to most learned.
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, 7th stanza/hymn describe much unique, priceless and other attributes of the esteemed learned. Such is all good inside and priceless, very difficult to find details of the most learned and great respect due, master of all and indescribable, no limits to define and only one like will recognize the most esteemed.

Guru ji conclude to humbly salute the esteemed learned of no limits.
Please note all errors are mine and I stand corrected.

Sat Sri Akal.

Harry Haller veer ji of course I agree. Enjoy Astpadi 8 Sabad 8. It is a brilliant way for Guru ji to clarify and continuously elaborate what creator is in Sikhism.
