Sri Nanak Parkash - Post 084

Above is an image of Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji associated with Nanaksar Gurdwaras.

Below continues the beautiful attachment breaking updesh by Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji to the Mulla from the eighth Adhyai of the Sri Nanak Parkash. Below are the stanzas numbered forty one to fifty.

“The words which you have said are the complete truth. Your mind is full of Love for the feet of the Lord. Your complete family are all worried about you and are in pain to see you in such a way.” 41.

“Please show some attachment to your family so that they will be pleased. You attachment draws the others in. Your father (Baba Kalu Ji), your uncle (Baba Kalu Ji) and other family members do not like the attitude that you have adopted.” 42.

“With these people interact, play and talk to as well as do the family work with enthusiasm.” Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji the friend of the meek heard the words of the Mulla and said the following divine words; 43.

ਜਨ ਪਿਸਰ ਪਦਰ ਬਿਰਾਦਰਾਂ ਕਸ ਨੇਸ ਦਸਤੰਗੀਰ ॥ ਆਖਿਰ ਬਿਅਫਤਮ ਕਸ ਨ ਦਾਰਦ ਚੂੰ ਸਵਦ ਤਕਬੀਰ ॥੨॥

Quatrain – (Explanation by Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji to the above stanza) “With the fathers, brothers, wives and sons to have attachment is all false. Without material riches they all leave you and if you have them then they will remain with you.” 44.

“When the angels of death come and grab your life force then how can these relatives help you? At your final moments you are alone then what of this individual’s greatness?” 45.

When a person leaves this world the love of God is the only commodity to accompany them. Those people who have not meditated on the name of God will go on the path to hell. They will then endure numerous punishments.” 46.

“Then a person will have no relative as their support with who he remained a fool!” When the Mulla realised the teachings of Guru Nanak Dev Ji was true in his heart and that the love of God should be imbued in him. 47.

He realised that Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji’s heart was filled with the love of God and due to this his mind had changed (mental focus) in the same way that an elephant can be prodded into following a certain direction. Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji who is the treasure trove of virtues was saying the truth as we constantly remain engrossed in attachment for others which is falsehood. 48.

In the end there is no one to protect you or to go along with you. The being goes alone and endures the pain. The individual lives in ignorance and does not realise this. The being remains engrossed in attachment both day and night. 49.

This is what the Mulla is deliberating over within his heart and said the following words to Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji, “You are of such a young age but have a great intellect. You are a granter of peace or a manifested saint.” 50.
