Sri Nanak Parkash - Post 064

Above is an image i should have put on the web earlier. The image shows the midwife Doulata, Baba Kalu Ji holding the baby, Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji and lastly Pandit Hardayal Ji.

Below are the translations from the fifth Adhyai of the Sri Nanak Parkash and the stanzas numbered sixty one to seventy within which Mata Tripta Ji witnesses the demi gods worshipping her child, Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji. Sri Guru Nanak dEv Ji using their psychic powers realises that Mata Ji has noticed this and makes her forget by ensnaring her back into attachment. The stanzas are below;

ਚੌਪਈ ।
ਹੌਂ ਹੇਰੇ ਸੁਪਨੇ ਕੀ ਨ੍ਯਾਈਂ । ਅਬਲੌ ਚਰਚ੍ਯੋ ਬਿਦਤ ਦਿਸਾਈ ।
ਚਿਤ ਵਿਚਾਰ ਕਰਤ੍ਯੋਂ ਪਰਭਾਤੂ । ਚਢ੍ਯੋ ਸੁ ਮਾਰਤੰਡ ਬਖ੍ਯਾਤੂ ॥੬੧॥
Quatrain – (Mata Tripta Ji is thinking to herself) I remember seeing this all as if it was a dream however I can actually see the sandalwood on the body of my son. In this way she continued to deliberate on this until the morning when the sun rose. 61.

ਜਾਨੀ ਨਾਨਕ ਜੀ ਮਨ ਮਾਤਾ । ਤਾਨ ਦਈ ਤਬ ਮੋਹ ਕਨਾਤਾ ।
ਜਾਗੇ ਪੁਨ ਕਰਿਕੈ ਮੁਖ ਰੂਖਾ । ਕਹੈਂ 'ਮਾਤ ! ਦੇ ਭੋਜਨ, ਭੂਖਾ ' ॥੬੨॥
At that moment Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji who was the knower of all realised that his mother Mata Tripta Ji had realised what had occurred. For that reason Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji engrossed his mothers mind in attachment. When Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji woke up then they made themselves look sad and said to his mother, “O Mother I am hungry please make some food for me.” 62.

ਨਿਸ ਕੀ ਭੂਲੀ ਸਕਲ ਵਿਚਾਰਾ । ਲਖੀ ਰਿਦੇ ਸੁਤ ਮੈਂ ਭੁਖ੍ਯਾਰਾ ।
ਦਧਿ ਸੋਂ ਅਸਨ ਦੀਨ ਹਿਤ ਖਾਨੇ । ਜਿਉਂ ਆਗੈ ਜਾਨੈ ਤਿਉਂ ਜਾਨੇ ॥੬੩॥
After saying this Mata Tripta Ji forgot all about the events in the night and in her heart only had the worry about her hungry son. She fed her son and gave him some yogurt and only thought of him as she did previously. 63.

ਦੋਹਰਾ ।
ਅਸਨ ਸਦਨ ਤੇ ਅਚਵ ਕੈ, ਮਿਲੇ ਬਾਲ ਜਹਿਂ ਜਾਲ ।
ਪਦ ਨੂਪਰ ਕਟ ਕਿੰਕਨੀ, ਹੋਵਤਿ ਸ਼ਬਦ ਬਿਸਾਲ ॥੬੪॥
Couplet – When Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji ate his food he went out to play with his friends who had come to see him. When Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji left he could be heard by his anklets making loud noises. 64

ਚੌਪਈ ।
ਬਿਚਰਹਿਂ ਖੇਲਨ ਮਹਿਂ ਅਨੁਰਾਗੇ । ਭਾਗੇ ਭਾਗਹਿਂ ਬਾਲ ਸਭਾਗੇ ।
ਥਿਰ ਹੋਵਤਿ, ਥਿਤ ਹੋਵਹਿਂ ਸਾਰੇ । ਬੈਸਹਿਂ, ਬੈਸ ਜਾਇਂ ਇਕਬਾਰੇ ॥੬੫॥
Quatrain – In this way Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji remained in his games. When Guru Nanak Dev Ji ran then so did all of the other children. When Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji stopped and stood still or sat down so did all the other children. 65.

ਨਾਨਕ ਆਨਨ ਭਾਨਹਿਂ ਕਹਾਨੀ । ਭਗਤਿ ਬਿਰਾਗ ਵਿਖੈ ਜੋ ਸਾਨੀ ।
ਸ਼੍ਰਵਣ ਮਨਨ ਕਰਿਹਹਿਂ ਨਿੰਧ੍ਯਾਸਾ । ਪੁਨ ਸੁਨਨੇ ਕੀ ਵਧਹਿ ਪਿਆਸਾ ॥੬੬॥
Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji used to tell all of the other children numerous stories which are imbued with dispassion and meditation to God. The children listen to the discourse, accept the teachings and adopt the practices from the stories. The thirst for stories seems to increase with the children. 66.

ਗਿਰਾ ਸੁਗੰਧਿ ਬਦਨ ਅਰਬਿੰਦਾ । ਜੁਗਤਿ ਯੁਕਤਿ ਸੁੰਦਰ ਮਕਰੰਦਾ ।
ਬਾਲ ਬ੍ਰਿੰਦ ਸਮਭਏ ਮਲਿੰਦਾ । ਸ਼੍ਰਵਨ ਪ ਕਰਹਿਂ, ਅਗਾਤ ਅਨੰਦਾ ॥੬੭॥
The face of Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji is like a lotus blossom and his words are full of fragrance. It draws the attention of all due to the sweet essence contained in his words. The other children are like bees that surround Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji. They all listen to the words with their ears and become engrossed in bliss. 67.

ਦੋਹਰਾ ।
ਆਵਤਿ ਜਾਵਤਿ ਮਨੁਜ ਕੋ, ਸੁਨਤਿ ਠਾਢ ਹੁਇ ਜਾਇ ।
ਪੰਡਤ ਸੇ ਮਧੁਰੇ ਲਗਹਿਂ, ਕੀਰਤਿ ਬਦਨ ਅਲਾਇਂ ॥੬੮॥
Couplet – Whichever person comes or goes on his/her way they stand still when they hear Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji as his words are sweet as if they were spoken by a knowledgeable individual. These people all sing the praises of Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji. 68.

ਚੌਪਈ ।
'ਇਹ ਬਾਲਿਕ ਕੈਸੇ ਬਚ ਬੋਲਹਿ । ਬਾਲ ਬੈਸ ਹੈ ਬੋਲ ਅਮੋਲਹਿ ' ।
ਚੰਦ ਬਦਨ ਤੇ ਸੁਧਾ ਸਮਾਨੀ । ਸ਼੍ਰੂਤ ਦਰ ਪਾਨਦ ਬੋਲਤਿ ਬਾਨੀ ॥੬੯॥
Quatrain – “What is this young child saying? He is just a child but his parables are priceless.” The face of Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji is like the moon and his words are like the ambrosial elixir. Those people who are listening are drinking this elixir. 69.

ਲਗੀ ਸਿਸੁਨ ਕੀ ਪ੍ਰੀਤਿ ਘਨੇਰੀ । ਸੰਗ ਨ ਤਜਹਿਂ ਰਹਹਿਂ ਮੁਖ ਹੇਰੀ ।
ਸਦਨ ਆਇਂ ਜਬ ਦੀਨਾ ਨਾਥੂ । ਸਿਸੁ ਨਹਿਂ ਤਜਹਿਂ ਰਹਹਿਂ ਹਿਤ ਸਾਥੂ ॥੭੦॥
All of the children love Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji as they do not leave him alone and stare at his radiant face. When the protector of the week Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji goes home the children do not leave him and go with him. 70.
