Sri Nanak Parkash - Post 031

Above is a modern painting depicting Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji with a background influenced by Tibetan Buddhism.

Now in the first Adhyai the invocations have almost been completed. Now Kavi Santokh Singh Ji gives us brief examples of some of the events that occur in the life of Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji. Below are the translations of the stanzas numbered seventy eight to eighty one;

ਦੋਹਰਾ ।
ਸੁੰਦਰ ਸਤਿਗੁਰੁ ਕੀ ਕਥਾ ਗੁਨ ਮੰਦਿਰ ਸੁਖਕੰਦ । ਬਰਨਨ ਤਿਸਕੋ ਅਬ ਕਰੋਂ ਹੋਵਹਿਂ ਬਿਘਨ ਨਿਕੰਦ ॥੭੮॥
Couplet – Now begins the beautiful eulogy to the life of Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji which is the temple of virtues along with a cloud of peace. Kavi Santokh Singh Ji says that he will now describe the testimony of Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji and is hoping that all impediments are removed. 78.

ਸ਼੍ਰੀ ਨਾਨਕ ਸੁ ਪ੍ਰਕਾਸ਼ ਮੈਂ, ਕਹੋਂ ਕਥਾ ਇਹ ਆਦਿ । ਅੰਗਦ ਬਾਲੇ ਕੋ ਮਿਲਨ, ਪੁਨ ਤਿਨ ਕੋ ਸੰਬਾਦ ॥੭੯॥
Couplet – This is the Granth containing the illumination of Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji life which I will narrate initially. It begins with Bhai Bala Ji meeting Sri Guru Angad Dev Ji then the conversation that takes place between them. 79.

ਚੌਪਈ ।
ਪੁਨ ਸ਼੍ਰੀ ਨਾਨਕ ਜਨਮੁ ਸੁਹਾਵਾ ।
ਸ਼ਿਸ਼ ਲੀਲਾ ਬਹੁ ਨਰਨ ਦਿਖਾਵਾ ।
ਕਹੋ ਕਥਾ ਕਿਯ ਮੋਦੀ ਖਾਨਾ ।
ਤਿਹ ਤਜ ਦੇਸ਼ ਬਿਲੋਕੇ ਨਾਨਾ ॥੮੦॥
Quatrain – Then the manifestation of Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji will be written, along with the tales of his youth which many witnessed. Following this is the expounding of events at the Modhi Khana in Sultanpur and the stories that took place in different countries. 80.

ਜਹਿਂ ਤਹਿਂ ਸਿੱਖੀ ਰੀਤਿ ਚਲਾਈ ।
ਪੁਰਿ ਕਰਤਾਰ ਬਸੇ ਪੁਨ ਆਈ ।
ਸਿੱਖੀ ਪਰਖੀ ਸਿੱਖਨ ਕੀ ਜਬ ।
ਸ਼੍ਰੀ ਅੰਗਦ ਕੋ ਤਖਤ ਦਿਯੋ ਤਬ ॥੮੧॥
I will narrate wherever Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji started the religious practices of Sikhism. I will also narrate the details of Kartarpur where Guru Nanak Dev Ji settled. This is where Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji tested their Sikhs and where Sri Guru Angad Dev Ji was installed on the throne of the Guru. 81.
