Sri Nanak Parkash - Post 061

Above is an image of Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji with Bhai Mardana, Bhai Bala and the nine other Sikh Gurus. Also in the picture is an unknown Sikh.

Below is the translation of the stanzas numbered thirty one to fourty of the fifth Adhyai of the Sri Nanak Parkash within which Baba Kalu Ji goes to the home of Pandit Hardayal Ji as he is skeptical about the prediction made about Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji on his birth. The translation is below;

ਚੌਪਈ ।
ਪੌਛਤਿ ਈਛਨ ਸ੍ਵਛਾਂਨਨ ਛਬਿ । ਛਕੀ ਮੋਹ ਮੈਂ ਪਿਖਿ ਜਨਨੀ ਤਬ ।
ਪਸਚਾਤਾਪ ਕਰਤਿ ਚਿਤ ਮਾਂਹੀ । ਹਮਰੇ ਦਸਨ ਏਕ ਸੁਤ ਆਹੀ ॥੩੧॥
Quatrain – Mata Tripta Ji is using a beautiful piece of cloth to wipe the tears from Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji’s eyes. She has become engrossed with attachment for the child and in her mind is regretting her actions towards the child. She is thinking to herself, ‘God has only blessed our family with one son.’ 31.

ਬਾਲ ਬੈਸ ਇਹ ਆਪਨ ਪਰ ਕੋ । ਹਾਨ ਲਾਭ ਨਹਿਂ ਜਾਨਹਿ ਘਰ ਕੋ ।
ਵਡੋ ਹੋਇ ਸਮਝਹਿ ਸਭਿ ਰੀਤੀ । ਅਬ ਡਰਪਾਵਨ ਕੀ ਨਹਿਂ ਨੀਤੀ ॥੩੨॥
The child is still of young age and has no know what is his and isn’t. He does not seem to have any attachment to the items we have at home. When he is older he will understand all of this for this reason it is not good to frighten him. 32.

ਉਰ ਵਿਚਾਰ ਕਰਿ ਇਹ ਬਿਧਿ ਮਾਤਾ । ਤਜ੍ਯੋ ਅੰਕ ਤੇ ਹਿਤ ਕਰਿ ਤਾਤਾ ।
ਖੇਲਨ ਲਗੇ ਬਾਲਿਕਨ ਮਾਂਹੀ । ਜਿਹਕੇ ਦਰਸ਼ਨ ਦੋਖ ਨ ਸਾਹੀਂ ॥੩੩॥
In this way Mata Tripta Ji deliberated in her heart and lovingly let him go from her lap. Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji then left and started to play with the other children. A glimpse of Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji is able to eradicate all pains that a person can suffer. 33.

ਦੋਹਰਾ ।
ਕਾਲੂ ਲੱਛਨ ਦੇਖਿ ਅਸਿ, ਦੈਵਗ ਵਾਕ ਸੰਭਾਰ ।
ਗਿਨਤ ਗਟੀ ਉਰ ਅਟਪਟੀ, ਤਿਹ ਕੇ ਗਯੋ ਅਗਾਰ ॥੩੪॥
Couplet – by seeing the characteristics of Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji his father Baba Kalu Ji remembers the advice of Pandit Hardayal Ji. Whilst wrestling with his thoughts in his mind Baba Kalu Ji arrived at the house of Pandit Hardayal Ji. 34.

ਚੌਪਈ ।
ਦਿਜ ਕੋ ਦੇਖਿ ਬਦਨ ਤੇ ਬੋਲ੍ਯੋ । 'ਭਲੋ ਆਪ ਨੈ ਜੋਤਿਸ਼ ਟੋਲ੍ਯੋ ।
ਤੁਮਰੋ ਕਹ੍ਯੋ ਨ ਫੁਰ ਭਾ ਏਕੂ । ਬਰਨਨ ਕੀਨੇ ਗੁਨ ਜੁ ਅਨੇਕੂ ॥੩੫॥
Quatrain – When Baba Kalu Ji met Pandit Hardayal Ji he said the following, “It was good that you checked the astrological signs on the birth of Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji however not even one of the things you said about my son has come true. You praised my son and said he would have infinite virtues.” 35.

ਤਿਹ ਕੇ ਲੱਛਨ ਤੇ ਮੈਂ ਜਾਨੀ । ਧਨ ਹਾਨੀ ਹਇ, ਮਨ ਅਨੁਮਾਨੀ ।
ਭਲੋ ਛਤਰ ਮੁਝ ਧਾਮ ਫਿਰਾਯੋ । ਅਗਲੀ ਦੀਨੀ ਵਸਤੁ ਗਵਾਯੋ ॥੩੬॥
“From seeing the child’s characteristics I have come to the following conclusion that this child will lose the wealth of the household. You said that a canopy would be held on top of my son’s head however he is already losing the initial possession in the house which God has already granted.” 36.

ਜੋ ਲੇਵਹਿ ਸੋ ਜਾਇ ਗਵਾਵਹਿ । ਬੂਜਹਿਂ ਜੇ, ਨਹਿਂ ਕਛੂ ਬਤਾਵਹਿ ।
ਗਨਨਾ ਗਿਨੀ ਗੁਨੀ, ਨਿਰਗੁਨੀ । ਤੁਮ ਗੁਨਵਾਨ, ਭਨੀ ਅਨਬਨੀ ॥੩੭॥
“Whatever he picks up he loses. If we are to ask him about the said item he does not tell us anything. From what you stated that my son was to have numerous virtues if you look at him it seems he actually has no virtues. You seem to me a person with great knowledge however everything you said has turned out to be completely wrong.” 37.

ਦੋਹਰਾ ।
ਮਨ ਹਰਖਾਵਨ ਕੇ ਨਮਿਤ, ਮੁਝ ਸੋਂ ਕਿਧੋਂ ਸਨੁਾਇ ।
ਗਨਨਾ ਕਰਤੇ ਚੁਕ ਗਏ, ਕਿਧੋਂ ਨ ਜਾਨ੍ਯੋ ਜਾਇ ' ॥੩੮॥
Couplet – “Did you say these things just to please my mind? Did you fail in your astrological formulas and equations?” 38.

ਚੌਪਈ ।
ਸੁਨਿ ਕਰਿ ਦਿਜਬਰ ਕਾਲੂ ਬਾਨੀ । ਹੁਤੀ ਅਸ਼ਰਧਾ ਮਹਿਂ ਲਪਟਾਨੀ ।
ਤਿਸੁ ਉਰ ਸ਼ਰਧਾ ਦੇਵਨ ਹੇਤੂ । ਬੋਲ੍ਯੋ ਬਚਨ ਬਿੱਪ੍ਰ ਕੁਲਕੇਤੂ ॥੩੯॥
Quatrain – Pandit Hardayal Ji listened to the complaint which was said with complete faith by Baba Kalu Ji. Then to assure Baba Kalu Ji the great Pandit said the following; 39.

'ਇਕ ਲੱਛਨ ਮੈਂ ਤਬ ਹੀ ਹੇਰਾ । ਕਹ੍ਯੋ ਨ ਸੋ ਪਿਖਿ ਆਨਂਦ ਤੇਰਾ ।
ਪ੍ਰਗਟ ਭਯੋ, ਮੈਂ ਸੋ ਅਬ ਜਾਨ੍ਯੋ । ਜੋ ਤੋ ਸੋ ਨਹਿਂ ਤਬਹਿ ਬਖਾਨ੍ਯੋ ॥੪੦॥
“Baba Kalu Ji I realised one characteristic of Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji’s straight away. Due to your delight at the time I did not disclose this. That characteristic has now manifested which I did not tell you about at the child’s birth. 40.
