Sri Nanak Parkash - Post 074

Above is a fresco depicting Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji with his companions surrounded by various Naths.

Below are the first ten stanzas numbered one to ten from the seventh Adhyai of the Sri Nanak Parkash.

Adhyai 07

Kabit – In the way that the rays of the sun are very bright and manifest, in the way that a King is able to punish those who have done wrong, in the way that the brain glands behind the ear of an elephant make it intoxicated all of these give glory to the objects (the sun, the king and the elephant). In the way clarified butter can be found in rice pudding, in the way content is found within a warrior fighting a battle, within water one gains bliss (from drinking and eradicating thirst), in the way that the moon resonates a glow, in the way the lotus blossom has a sweet fragrant smell and the complete beings who are with God are able to give liberation, in this way all of these things have great fame and glory. In the way a charitable being gives money and gains praise, in the way the Raags (musical melodies or compositions) gain praise when sung in this way The Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji contains all the aesthetic flavour and bliss within it. 1.

Bhai Bala Ji is saying
Couplet – Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji who is the granter of liberation had returned home with anklets on his feet and a cord around his waist both which had bells making noises. 2.

Quatrain – Mata Tripta Ji on seeing Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji said, “O son you have returned home before the evening from the school of Gopal Pandhay. Your father will be very angry as you are not interested in education but in playing all the time.” 3.

When Mata Tripta Ji said this then a tear came from the eye of Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji. Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji is the one who gives bliss to the saints is now standing on this earth. When Mata Tripta Ji saw her son in a state of dispassion she grabbed him by the hand and softly tried to explain what she had said. 4.

She said, “O Son for you I will daily create jewelled ornaments and you will forever gain sweet delights to eat. I you are able to gain the education to learn and complete our family trade which you can do when you are older.” 5.

Couplet – Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji are residing in their house when the evening had set in. Baba Kalu Ji returned home and saw his graceful son with his eyes. 6.

Quatrain – With great love and bliss Baba Kalu Ji embraced Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji he then sat Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji on his lap whilst on a stool. Baba Kalu Ji then said, “O Son please tell me what you have learned today at school? What did Gopal Pandhay teach you?” 7.

When Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji heard his father’s question he told him everything. After that the other children arrived at the house and Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji left the house accompanying them. 8.

All the children played in the street on a night of the full moon. Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji is then narrating stories to the other children about the divine message given to him about the Lord. 9.

Couplet – Once the children heard the sweet ambrosial words of Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji all of the children would go silent. The children listen with loving attention and are never satisfied thirsting for more. 10.
