Sri Nanak Parkash - Post 060

Above is an image of the Kahrava of Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji

First of all as you can see the layout of the blog has improved drastically. this is all thanks to the Nishkam Seva of Bhai Jvala Singh Ji and his brother in Canada who have given up their valuable time to redesign the layout and pictures of the blog. Not only that but the Sri Nanak Parkash posts from nineteen to thirty have all been re-edited and the gurmukhi of the Sri Nanak Parkash has been added to these posts so that the first Adhyai is almost complete with Gurmukhi online. Again the credit goes to Bhai Jvala Singh as he has typed this up on Unicode. All of this Nishkaam Seva whilst maintaining his own blog (Sikhreality) and working hard on his final year of completing a degree. What a gem this Singh is to the panthic seva whilst busy in his academic studies.

Back to the translations from the Sri Nanak Parkash now, below are the next ten stanzas from the fifth Adhyai of the Sri Nanak Parkash by Kavi Santokh Singh Ji. The stanzas below are numbered twenty one to thirty start to narrate the unique qualities of Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji at the age of five years of age. At this age he showed no attachment to any material objects, instead he used to take them from the house and throw them near the poor so that it would assist them. however Mata Tripta Ji had grown angry of losing her possessions and the following events took place as shown below;

ਪਾਂਚ ਬਰਖ ਕੀ ਹੋਈ ਬੈਸਾ । ਕਰਨ ਲਗੇ ਕਾਰਜ ਪੁਨ ਐਸਾ ।
ਲੇਯ ਵਸਤੁ ਘਰ ਬਾਹਰ ਧਾਵਹਿਂ । ਜੋ ਲੇਵਹਿਂ ਸੋ ਜਾਇ ਗਵਾਵਹਿਂ ॥੨੧॥
When Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji was aged five he then started to play in this manner. Whatever item he finds in the house he takes it with him when he leaves and loses it. 21.

ਦੋਹਰਾ ।
ਭਾਂਜਨ ਭੂਖਨ ਬਸਨ ਜੇ, ਨਿਜ ਨਿਕੇਤ ਤੇ ਲੇਯ ।
ਜਾਇ ਨਿਰਸਤਹਿਂ ਜਾਇ ਤਹਿਂ, ਜਹਿਂ ਅਗਾਤ ਦੀਨੇਯ ॥੨੨॥
Couplet – Whether it is be utensils, jewellery or clothes he takes it from his home and throws it away where the poor live. 22.

ਚੌਪਈ ।
ਕਰਤਿ ਨਿਤਾਪ੍ਰਤਿ ਇਹ ਬਿਧਿ ਕਾਰ । ਦਯਾ ਕਰਨ ਕੋ ਜਿਹ ਬਿਵਹਾਰ ।
ਇਕ ਬਾਸੁਰ ਇਕ ਭਾਂਜਨ ਲੀਨਾ । ਰੰਕ ਪਿਖ੍ਯੋ ਇਕ ਤਹਿਂ ਸੁਟ ਦੀਨਾ ॥੨੩॥
Quatrain – Each day Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji do the same where they are merciful to those who are unfortunate. One day Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji took an expensive cooking utensil from the house and threw this in front of a poor person who he saw walking. 23.

ਮੁਰਿ ਕਰਿ ਨਿਜ ਘਰ ਆਏ ਜਬਿਹੀ । ਜਨਨੀ ਹੇਰੇ ਰੋਸੀ ਤਬ ਹੀ ।
ਬੂਝਨ ਲਗੀ 'ਕਹਾਂ ਤੈਂ ਗੇਰਾ ? । ਅਬ ਥੋ ਕਰ ਮਹਿਂ, ਭਈ ਨ ਦੇਰਾ ' ॥੨੪॥
When Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji came home Mata Tripta Ji saw that he had returned home empty handed she was very cross. She asked him, “Where have you thrown the utensil? You had it in your hand one minute and now it is gone.” 24.

ਮੁਖ ਤੇ ਕਹੈਂ ਨ ਉਤਰ ਕੋਊ । ਭਏ ਤੂਸ਼ਨੀ ਗਤਿਦਾ ਜੋਊ ।
ਕਰ ਮਹਿ ਲੇ ਲਕਰੀ ਤਬ ਮਾਤਾ । ਡਰਪਾਵਨ ਲਾਗੀ ਨਿਜ ਤਾਤਾ ॥੨੫॥
On being questioned Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji failed to reply to Mata Ji. Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji remains completely silent. Mata Tripta Ji at that point picked up a stick in order to punish Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji. 25.

ਦੋਹਰਾ ।
ਮ੍ਰਿਘ ਅਰਭਕ ਸੇ ਚਕਿਤ ਚਖੁ, ਕਰੇ ਨੀਚ ਡਰਿ ਮਾਤ ।
ਸਜਲ ਭਏ ਝਖ ਦੋ ਮਨੋ, ਛੋਰਤਿ ਸਰਿਤਾ ਗਾਤ ॥੨੬॥
Couplet – Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji fearing his mother was like a young dear who lowered his eyes. Both of the eyes filled with tears and tears rolled down the Gurus face as if it was water from two streams. 26.

ਚੌਪਈ ।
ਲਾਲੂ ਪਿਤ੍ਰ ਬੰਧੁ ਤਬ ਆਯੋ । ਕਰੁਨਾ ਰਸ ਮਹਿਂ ਹੋ ਛੁਟਕਾਯੋ ।
ਰਿਸ ਕੀਨੇ ਕਹਿਹੀ ਪੁਨ ਵਾਕੂ । 'ਬਹੁ ਔਗੁਨ ਕੀਨੇ ਇਨ ਪ੍ਰਾਕੂ ॥੨੭॥
Quatrain – At that moment Baba Lalu Ji (uncle of Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji) came to the house and prevented anything happening to the Guru. Still Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji’s mother was still angry and continued to say, “My son has committing some mischievous acts.” 27.

ਲੇਯ ਸਦਨ ਤੇ ਵਸਤੁ ਜੁ ਹੇਰਹਿ । ਬਹੁਰ ਨ ਆਨਹਿ ਬਾਹਰ ਗੇਰਹਿ ।
ਨਿਠੁਰ ਨਿਡਰ ਸੁ ਢੀਠ ਇਸ ਜੈਸਾ । ਅਬ ਲੌ ਹੌਂ ਨ ਨਿਹਾਰ੍ਯੋ ਐਸਾ ॥੨੮॥
“Whatever item he likes in the house he takes with him and does not return it. For this reason I am not happy with this hard hearted and insensitive attitude. I have not seen another child like this.” 28.

ਪੂਰਬ ਇਨ ਬਹੁ ਵਸਤੁ ਗਵਾਈ । ਹੌਂ ਕਹਿ ਰਹੀ ਸਮਝ ਨਹਿਂ ਆਈ ।
ਸਾਸਨ ਯੋਗ, ਅਬਹਿ ਤੁਝ ਛੋਰਾ । ਐਸਾ ਕਾਜ ਨ ਕਰਿ ਪੁਨ ਔਰਾ ' ॥੨੯॥
“He has already lost a large amount of items and he does not seem to understand. I was ready to punish him but due to your uncle arriving you have been saved. Do not do this again.” 29

ਦੋਹਰਾ ।
ਜਨਨੀ ਯੌਂ ਸਮਝਾਇ ਕੈ, ਉਰ ਭਰਿ ਆਯੋ ਨੇਹੁਂ ।
ਕਰ ਗਹਿ ਅੰਕ ਬਿਠਾਇੳ, ਨਿਜ ਸੁਤ ਕਰੁਨਾਗੇਹੁ ॥੩੦॥
Couplet – in this way Mata Tripta Ji made Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji understand but straight way she became full of the love and attachment she had for Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji. She grabbed Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji’s hand and sat him in her lap. Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji is the master of mercy and piety. 30.
