Sri Nanak Parkash - Post 036

Above is an image of Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji with Bhai Mardana in the background.

Another quick post today, stanzas twenty six to thirty of the second Adhyai of the Sri Nanak Parkash are translated below;

ਸਵਿਤਾ ਅਸਤਿ ਨਿਸਾ ਹੁਇ ਆਈ । ਬਾਲਾ ਰਹਤਿ ਭਯੋ ਤਿਹ ਥਾਂਈ ।
ਸਿਖ ਸੰਗਤਿ ਜਹਿਂ ਮਿਲ ਸਮੁਦਾਯਾ । ਤਹਾਂ ਬਸਯੋ ਸਭਿਹਿਨਿ ਮਨ ਭਾਯਾ ॥੨੬॥
The sun had now set and day had become night. Bhai Bala Ji remained at Sri Khadoor Sahib. The Sikh congregations all gathered within which Bhai Bala Ji sat. 26.

ਨਿਸ ਮੈਂ ਭਨਤਿ ਰਹਯੋ ਤਿਨ ਸਾਥਾ । ਸ਼੍ਰੀ ਨਾਨਕ ਕੀ ਸੁੰਦਰ ਗਾਥਾ ।
ਅੰਗਦ ਮਗਨ ਲਗਯੋ ਮਨ ਧਯਾਨਾ । ਆਸਨ ਬੈਸਯੋ ਭਈ ਬਿਹਾਨਾ ॥੨੭॥
During the night Bhai Bala Ji continues to tell the congregations from Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji’s life. Sri Guru Angad Dev Ji’s mind remains intoxicated in the thoughts of Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji and for the whole night remained in the same posture. 27.

ਪੁਨ ਪੂਖਨ ਪਰਕਾਸ਼ਤਿ ਭਯੋ । ਛੁਟੀ ਸਮਾਧਿ ਸ਼ਨਾਨੰ ਕਯੋ ।
ਬੈਸੇ ਬਹੁਰ ਬੁਲਾਯੋ ਬਾਲਾ । ਬੰਦਨ ਕਰੀ ਆਨ ਤਤਕਾਲਾ ॥੨੮॥
Then the dawn came when the sun rose diminishing the night. Sri Guru Angad Dev Ji came out of his meditation posture and bathed. After bathing Guru Angad Dev Ji sat back on his throne and called for Bhai Bala. Bhai Bala Ji arrived quickly to pay his respects to Guru Angad Dev Ji. 28.

ਦੋਹਰਾ ।
ਗੁਰ ਅੰਗਦ ਸ਼੍ਰੀ ਮੁਖ ਕਹਯੋ 'ਸਭਿ ਇਤਿਹਾਸ ਸਨੁਾਉ ।
ਸ਼੍ਰੀ ਨਾਨਕ ਕੇ ਜਨਮ ਤੇ, ਸਕਲ ਕਥਾ ਸਮਝਾਉ' ॥੨੯॥
Couplet – Sri Guru Angad Dev Ji uttered from his mouth, “Now recite Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji’s life story. From the birth of Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji’s birth and make us all understand his message.” 29.

ਚੌਪਈ ।
ਬਾਲੇ ਗੁਰ ਪ੍ਰਤਿ ਗਿਰਾ ਉਚਾਰੀ । 'ਜਨਮ ਕਥਾ ਅਨਜਾਨ ਅਗਾਰੀ ।
ਬਹੁਤ ਨਰਨ ਤੇ ਇਹ ਬਿਧਿ ਸੁਨੀ । ਸੋ ਤੁਮ ਪਾਸ ਬਖਾਨਤਿ ਗੁਨੀ ॥੩੦॥
Quatrain – Bhai Bala made the following supplication as a reply to Sri Guru Angad Dev Ji. “O Sri Guru Angad Dev Ji I do not know about Guru Nanak Dev Ji’s birth. From many other people I have heard about the story of Guru Nanak Dev Ji’s birth and what I can do is tell you about what I have heard.” 30.


  1. Can you please let the sangat know of roughly when the steek on Bhai Gurdas Ji's Vaars will be available for purchase? I am really looking forward to that Steek as Bhai Sahib's works are second to none in explaining gurmat!

  2. Bhai Gurdas Singh ji's Steek will be finished in about a month however the steek on bhai gurdas dian vaaran are going to take me another year. just the first vaar is over 200 pages including commentary so if i do release them it will be in volumes. Sorry

    I may just put them on the net like the nanak parkash if i do not publish it.

  3. I think you should definetly publish the vaaars. Posting on the internet just isn't the same as having a book

  4. ohh. is the steek on bhai gurdas singh ji,s vaar only one vaar? like number 41?

  5. btw the 41st vaar can be downloaded from here:

  6. KamSingh when u say finished by next month...when will it be sent for printing etc..i.e available to buy from dtf?

  7. I have the vaar all written out just doing the commentary from different granths to add to it and the conclusions to how many people have actually written that 41st vaar as the measures are metres differ variously.

    Once sent to DTF it normally takes 4 months to publish so i hope for August when Sant Hari Singh Ji are here so i can give them my first copy.

  8. Gurfateh Veer,

    That's great. I look forward to August!
