Sri Nanak Parkash - Post 056

Above is an image of a written Pothi by Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji.

The last four stanzas of the fourth Adhyai is translated below. In these stanzas we see Pandit Hardayal Ji thinking to himself and hoping that he will get a chance to speak to Guru Nanak Dev Ji when he reaches the age of enlightenment. The last stanzas are below;

“When this child leaves his childhood and becomes in his youthful years many people will be in this child’s congregation and swim across the worldly ocean. I will then make a supplication to the Guru and ask that to free me from the bondage's of work and liberate me.” 61.

Couplet – “If the Guru is the knower of all then through his intuition he can read what I am thinking in his young form. If he has this power then he can show me something that will happen in my life and through his mercy grant me a divine sermon.” 62

Quatrain – “When Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji is at the age when he can give out knowledgeable sermons please O Lord let me live til this moment.” In this way whilst deliberating on these thoughts Pandit Hardayal Ji went home whilst meditating on the name of God yearning for salvation. 63.

After this moment a considerable time elapsed and Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji continue to grow. This is similar to how a devotee grows in knowledge and his vices decrease. 64.

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

    Bhai Kamalpreet Singh Ji can you please post other meaning of (Satguru Sri Guru) Nanak (Dev Ji Maharaj) please. Or direct sangat to katha which elaborates on this.


  2. Gurfateh

    Ok here are the arths of the word Nanak which i have produced for the Teeka of Jap Ji Sahib which is ongoing

    1) Na = without, Nak = duality
    This is a person who is without duality. This person is unique and distinguished. This is the reason why God chose this name when they came in the form of Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji.

    2) Na = No, Anak = other
    This is the form of a person who has no duality or another like them.

    3) Na = being, person, complete An = without, exempt, Ak = pain, suffering
    This is a being that is exempt from pain and suffering. He is a complete being and is the form of supreme conscious and bliss. This was the true form of Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji. They assumed this form in order to protect the saints.

    4) Na = instigator, Nak = enlightener
    This person is the instigator of everything in everyone. He is the enlightener of all. He gives all people contentment and liberates all.

    5) Na = being, person, An + Ak = without suffering
    God who is the being that is exempt from suffering and pain that is Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji.

    6) Nan = fortune, Naku = liberator
    The word Nanak can be translated as one who gives fortune to others or one who grants people boons. The liberator of all and gives everyone contentment.

    Hope that helps
