Sri Nanak Parkash - Post 085

Above is another image of Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji

Below continues the updesh to the Mulla by Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji in the eighth Adhyai of the Sri Nanak Parkash. Below are the stanzas numbered fifty one to sixty.

“In such a young age you have understood the method to worshipping the Lord as well as performing good actions is your mindset. You have forgotten all of your thoughts from your mind and instead replaced it with the love for God.” 51.

“You have turned your mind away from the lure of lustful desires and are soaked in the love for the Lord.” When Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji heard the praise given by the Mulla then he recited the third part of the shabad. 52.

ਸਬ ਰੋਜ ਗਸਤਮ ਦਰ ਹਵਾ ਕਰਦੇਮ ਬਦੀ ਖਿਆਲ ॥ ਗਾਹੇ ਨ ਨੇਕੀ ਕਾਰ ਕਰਦਮ ਮਮ ੲ‍ਂ‍ੀ ਚਿਨੀ ਅਹਵਾਲ ॥੩॥

Quatrain – (Guru Nanak Dev Ji are explaining the above shabad) “Both day and night with bad thoughts a young person wastes his life and does not know any better. In order to appease the mind the he does not meditate on the Lord and no matter what he tries he continues to be engrossed in lustful thoughts and desire.” 53.

“It is as if one is to uproot the wish fulfilling tree known as Kalapbrich and plant the Kikkar tree (Maya) in their garden. It is as if one is to leave the immortal elixir and drink alcohol or get rid of the sandalwood and replace it with bamboo.” 54.

How can these people gain a feeling of peace if they forget about God and grasp onto lustful desires and feelings. All of a person’s life has slowly passed but one has never loved the Lord.” 55.

The Mulla listened to the words and his faith in Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji increased. He folded his hands and made the following supplication, “There is no other individual equal to you.” 56.

“God has granted you such a beautiful form which is soaked with love for God.” Listening to this Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji recited the fourth part of the shabad which has the power to eradicate ego. 57.

ਬਦਬਖਤ ਹਮ ਚੁ ਬਖੀਲ ਗਾਫਿਲ ਬੇਨਜਰ ਬੇਬਾਕ ॥ ਨਾਨਕ ਬੁਗੋਯਦ ਜਨੁ ਤੁਰਾ ਤੇਰੇ ਚਾਕਰਾਂ ਪਾ ਖਾਕ ॥੪॥੧॥

Quatrain – (Guru Nanak Dev Ji explaining the meanings to the shabad above) “The true congregation is soaked in the love of the Lord they cannot do any other work then meditating on the Lord. They have given both their mind and body to the Lord focusing their complete thoughts on the one God.” 58.

“I am the dust of the feel of these individuals. I am filled with infinite numbers of negative virtues. With the grace of the merciful saints bless and forgive me for my faults.” 59.

With great humility listening to the utterances the Mulla gained a peaceful mind. Showing his humility he joined both of his hands and said, “O Swami, with your grace please merge me with the one God! 60.



    Can you please shed more light on nanak gita please veer?


  2. What is it that you wish to know?

    Itis a work of Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji like many others which never found a place in the Adi Granth. The bani comprises of 100 saloks or aphorisms within which the details of the Jeev and Ishwar are explained.

    The Bhagwad Gita and Gobind Gita are in more depth when it comes to Vedant and Ishwar whilst Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji summerised it at a very early age.

    I hope that sort of helps. Otherwise i would suggest speaking to the Nanakpanthis or Usdasis in India
