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

ਪੂਰਾ ਪ੍ਰਭੁ ਆਰਾਧਿਆ ਪੂਰਾ ਜਾ ਕਾ ਨਾਉ ਨਾਨਕ ਪੂਰਾ ਪਾਇਆ ਪੂਰੇ ਕੇ ਗੁਨ ਗਾਉ ੧॥
Pūrā parabẖ ārāḏẖi▫ā pūrā jā kā nā▫o. Nānak pūrā pā▫i▫ā pūre ke gun gā▫o. ||1||
Complete creator contemplated, complete so is known. Nanak, found the complete one, sing virtues of so complete.

ਅਸਟਪਦੀ
Asatpaḏī.
Eight stanzas hymn

ਇਹੁ ਨਿਧਾਨੁ ਜਪੈ ਮਨਿ ਕੋਇ ਸਭ ਜੁਗ ਮਹਿ ਤਾ ਕੀ ਗਤਿ ਹੋਇ
Ih niḏẖān japai man ko▫e. Sabẖ jug mėh ṯā kī gaṯ ho▫e.
Anyone that so contemplates such understanding treasure in mind. All through life such experiences higher living.

ਗੁਣ ਗੋਬਿੰਦ ਨਾਮ ਧੁਨਿ ਬਾਣੀ ਸਿਮ੍ਰਿਤਿ ਸਾਸਤ੍ਰ ਬੇਦ ਬਖਾਣੀ
Guṇ gobinḏ nām ḏẖun baṇī. Simriṯ sāsṯar beḏ bakẖāṇī.
Words of such reflect the virtues of the creator and melody of such. Simritees, Treatises and Vedas so say.

ਸਗਲ ਮਤਾਂਤ ਕੇਵਲ ਹਰਿ ਨਾਮ ਗੋਬਿੰਦ ਭਗਤ ਕੈ ਮਨਿ ਬਿਸ੍ਰਾਮ
Sagal maṯāʼnṯ keval har nām. Gobinḏ bẖagaṯ kai man bisrām.
Gist of all religions is the understanding of the creator. Such understanding resides in the pious contemplator of the creator.

ਕੋਟਿ ਅਪ੍ਰਾਧ ਸਾਧਸੰਗਿ ਮਿਟੈ ਸੰਤ ਕ੍ਰਿਪਾ ਤੇ ਜਮ ਤੇ ਛੁਟੈ
Kot aprāḏẖ sāḏẖsang mitai. Sanṯ kirpā ṯe jam ṯe cẖẖutai.
Millions of ill deeds get erased in the company of the pious. Through blessing of learned pious one is forsaken of death demon.

ਜਾ ਕੈ ਮਸਤਕਿ ਕਰਮ ਪ੍ਰਭਿ ਪਾਏ ਸਾਧ ਸਰਣਿ ਨਾਨਕ ਤੇ ਆਏ ੭॥
Jā kai masṯak karam parabẖ pā▫e. Sāḏẖ saraṇ Nānak ṯe ā▫e. ||7||
So blessed as written by creator on their foreheads. Nanak, such seek refuge with the pious.
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, 7th sabad cherish the greatness of having treasure of understanding that leads to ever higher living. Guru ji also state that many other treatises also seek out virtues of the creator and that fundamental driver in all religions is the understanding of the creator.


Guru ji emphasize and praise the benefits of company of the pious which leads to salvation and to the dissipation of ill deeds.

Guru ji conclude that it is as if it is written on the forehead of the blessed to seek out the pious.
Please note all errors are mine and I stand corrected.

Sat Sri Akal.
