Sri Nanak Parkash - Post 018

Above is a painting depicting Sri Guru Gobind Singh Ji riding 'Neela' whilst guarded by the Nihang Singhs in their blue attire.

In the thirty first stanza of the first Adhyai int he Sri Nanak Parkash Kavi Santokh Singh Ji continues with his invocation to Sri Guru Gobind Singh Ji. In this stanza Kavi Santokh Singh Ji write in complete humility of the graceful transformation that Sri Guru Gobind Singh Ji can have on an individual through the use of some beautiful metaphors. The translation is given below;

ਸ੍ਵੈਯਾ ॥
ਭੂਲ ਜੋ ਚੂਕ ਭਈ ਹਮ ਤੇ ਗੁਰ ਕਿੰਕਰ ਸੋ ਤੁਮ ਤੇ ਬਖਸ਼ਾਵਤਿ ।
ਲਾਜ ਰਖੋ ਨਿਜ ਨਾਮਹਿ ਕੀ ਸਿਖ ਮੈਂ ਤੁਮਰੋ ਜਗ ਮਾਂਹਿ ਕਹਾਵਤਿ ।
ਤੂੰ ਬਖਸ਼ੰਦ ਸਦਾ ਸੁਖਦਾਇਕ ਮੋ ਮਨ ਨਾਂਹਿ ਬਿਖੈ ਛੁਟਕਾਵਤਿ ।
ਲੋਹ ਤੇ ਹੇਮ ਇਰੰਡ ਤੇ ਚੰਦਨ ਮਾਨੁਖ ਤੇ ਸੁਰ ਤੂੰ ਹੀ ਬਨਾਵਤਿ ॥੩੧॥

Savaiya – O Sri Guru Gobind Singh Ji if I have forgotten or done anything wrong then consider me your slave and wish for forgiveness. O Sri Guru Gobind Singh Ji I consider myself as one of your Sikhs and for this reason honour your great name. O Sri Guru Gobind Singh Ji you are the giver of all and the provider of peace. O Sri Guru Gobind Singh Ji my mind is not liberated and in dwelling in vices and constantly resides in sin. O Sri Guru Gobind Singh Ji I have heard your praise and in the way that one turns iron (sinful individuals) into gold (pure individuals), the Castor tree (ones without faith) into the sandalwood tree (with complete faith) you are the one who can make a human as great as a demi god. 31.

Above is a painting of Sri Guru Gobind Singh Ji which is kept at the inner sanctum of Sri Hazoor Sahib in Nander, Maharashtar.
