Sri Nanak Parkash - Post 050


Above is an image of Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji in a cradle being tended to by midwifes.

Apologies for failing to post yesterday. Due to this I have worked as hard as I can to complete the outstanding stanzas of the third Adhyai of the Sri Nanak Parkash. in the last twenty stanzas we hear about the arrival of Jagat Guru, Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji manifesting in the world. The stanzas numbered sixty one to eighty are below completing the third Adhyai;

Some time passed and the Lord became aware of the devotion of Baba Kalu Ji and thought to himself, “I should go to the earth and manifest as his son”. After this the king of the world was to manifest on the earth. 61.

Then the Lord manifest as the second child of Mata Nanaki who had accumulated great merit from penances performed. The stomach of the mother began to grow it was as if a second moon was radiating luminance. 62.

Even if Mata Tripta Ji was not wearing any jewellery even then she remained beautiful and elegant. Whichever house Mata Tripta Ji sat in she glorified due to her beauty. 63.

If one is to listen to these complements and have suspicions to its reality then the Lord who glorifies the world, galaxies, dimensions and universe, why would he not glorify the place in which he is residing? (The womb of Mata Tripta) 64.

When the master of the universe manifest in the womb of Mata Tripta Ji those people who were considered apostates and sinful all became pure and righteous. They spoke the truth, content, righteous and earned a truthful living. They began to do such fruitful deeds. 65.

A scented breeze began to flow through which all pain, worries and illness all disappeared. The clouds began to form full of rain to celebrate the manifestation of the Lord. The rain bringing clouds fulfilled the desires of the mass population. 66.

The trees began to grow large amounts of fruit to show their happiness for the impending manifestation of Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji. 67.

The land of Talwandi was becoming green and fertile. The land was very excited by the impending manifestation. Both the conscious and insentient beings in Talwandi were overjoyed with the impending manifestation of the Lord. 68.

When the ten months of pregnancy had passed then the full moon of the month of ‘Sat’ arrived. The sky is full of stars glorifying it in the way the virtues glorify a devotee. 69.

Those clouds carrying no water in Talwandi all went away from the land in a way that the ills and pains all are dispelled from the true congregation. It was the advent of the full moon in the month of Kattak and the moon was bright as the splendour of the Lord.70.

It was the Bikrami year of nine plus six (15) and twenty six years (1526 Bikrami) when the divine Lord, Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji manifest. Everyone was very pleased at the time but did not know what the cause of such euphoria was. 71.

The beings who lived on the earth or in the ether all meditated on the deathless Lord which made them joyful. Due to the joyous occasion they were blowing their conch shells and shouting, ‘be victorious’ at the arrival of the Guru. 72.

The demi gods got together and started to rub sandalwood and mixed it with saffron and camphor. They sprinkled this over the house of Baba Kalu Ji and also threw leaves from the ‘Kusam’ tree (this tree is a heavenly tree kept with the demigods due to its beauty) in celebration. 73.

All the midwife got ready to assist and serve Mata Tripta Ji as the son had just been born (Guru Nanak Dev Ji) and she was in a state of ecstasy. At that time eight lamps were alight in the house of Baba Kalu Ji but their light was not as bright as the child Guru, Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji. 74.

The Lord Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji is illuminating in form and beautiful. The midwife was surprised on seeing the form of Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji and thought, ‘this child has taken birth and instead of crying is actually laughing’. She could not understand what was taking place in front of her eyes. 75.

When all other children are born into the world they arrive with the sound of crying but this child is laughing as if he is internally in a state of euphoria. Bhai Santokh Singh Ji states how can this midwife who doesn’t have the right level of intellect comprehend what is taking place before her eyes? This child is actually the Lord manifest who is exempt from the cycle of transmigration. 76.

The midwife ran to inform Baba Kalu of the joyous news. She said to him, “O Baba Kalu Ji you house is full of joy and congratulations as a radiant son has been born into your family I wish you much happiness.” 77.

After hearing that a child had been born from this message given by the midwife a sense of peace and bliss propagated in the heart of Baba Kalu Ji. It was as if a poor family had obtained the wish fulfilling tree Kalapbrich, this was the sense of bliss Baba Kalu Ji felt. 78.

After hearing the news Baba Kalu went and bathed whilst wearing his clothing as advised and instructed by Vedic rituals. He focused his complete thoughts on the Lord, folded his hands and prostrated in respect to the divine. 79.

In this way Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji manifested in the world in order to give the earth some peace and spread the meditation of the Lords name. Later I will narrate the events that took place in the life of Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji within which assisted great numbers of people. 80.

The third Adhyai of the Sri Nanak Parkash Granth (Poorbarad) which is regarding the birth of Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji has now been completed.
