Pargate gupāl mahāʼnṯ kai māthe. Nānak uḏẖre ṯin kai sāthe. ||3||
Creator so shines on the foreheads of the high and pure. Nanak, finds salvation with such.
ESSENCE: In the salok of final Astpadi 24th, Guru ji state the completeness of creator. So finding the complete one in contemplation, now to sing virtues of such complete one.

Guru Arjan Dev ji in Astpadi 24, 3rd sabad provide great emphasis on the company of the learned and pious, listening to such as are so imbued with the understanding of the creator. Guru ji say of the words from these as being priceless, rubies and gems. These find salvation for self and help others do so as such are imbued with creator’s understanding. Life living in this mode is a successful one. In so saying the resounding words of creator’s recognition one in enjoyment shows creator shining everywhere.


Guru ji conclude that creator so shines through the pious learned and one finds salvation through such.
Please note all errors are mine and I stand corrected.

Sat Sri Akal.
