Sri Nanak Parkash - Post 046

Above is an image of Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji

Below are the translated stanzas from the third Adhyai of the Sri Nanak Parkash where the Lord empathises with the burden carried by the planet earth due to the degrading attitude of human beings. The lord states that he will ascend and manifest on the earth assuming a transcendent form as no other being will be able to cope with the sin in the world. Following are the stanzas numbered twenty two to thirty;

“For this specific reason I have sent many people to the earth who have started their various faiths. The reason for which I had sent them was not carried out instead they started their various orders. 22.

“They did not tell the earth about the glory of my name and did not teach people about loving devotion to me. Through the name of God the earth can gain support and shelter.” These are the words said by the Lord. 23

“When the name of God and its keertan is done in the world then you will be sheltered. For this reason I personally will adopt a transcendent form and manifest on the earth as no one else will be able to perform this task.” 24.

In this way God’s words gave a refuge to the lamenting earth. By adopting this faith all the burden of the earth will be decimated. In this way the words of the Lord resonated from the sky causing great happiness in the heart and in the mind of the earth. 25

The progeny of Sri Ram Chandar was still in existence and had no blemishes and for this reason Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji manifest into the clan of the Bedi’s who like a night lotus bloomed with the arrival of Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji who was like the soothing moon. The non transcendent Lord adopted a transcendent form and manifest on the earth and was known in the form of the Satguru. 26.

Couplet – The bad deeds are like the night and the age of Kaljug is wrought with fear. The false hood spread in the world was like the array of stars in the night sky. In the way that many nocturnal flowers bloom in the night so had many faiths and beliefs bloomed. At that time the majority rule was by the Islamic faiths. 27.

Quatrain – In order to dispel the darkness Guru Nanak Dev Ji manifest as if he was the rising sun. In this way Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji illuminated the world. The Guru was like the sun whilst his discourses were like the rays of the sun. The saints on seeing the sun like Guru had their lotus like hearts in full bloom. 28.

Those living in falsehood and atheists all felt the pain of the sun like Guru as the owls do when the sun rises. Those who believed in the Guru were in bliss as the Chaki is when it sees the sun rise. The radiance of meditation was illuminated throughout the world. The ignorance within the devotees was dispelled by the Guru. 29.

Those great beings were awoken once they gained wisdom and knowledge. In the way a person leaves a dream and awakens the devotees left their sinful past gaining knowledge and devotion. In order to sustain the wisdom of the great beings Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji manifest into the clan of the Bedi’s. 30.
