Sri Nanak Parkash - Post 089

Above is another image of Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji.

Below continues the parsang of the Janayoo in the ninth Adhyai of the Sri Nanak Parkash. Below are another ten stanzas numbered twenty one to thirty. In these stanzas Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji utters divine Gurbani and this shabad Can be found on ang 471 of the Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji.

“O Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji please advise us of this as everyone wishes to hear your words and become pleased.” Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji’s then spoke from his lotus mouth such words to make one understand how the angels of death respect the sacred thread. 21.

ਸਲੋਕੁ ਮਃ ੧ ॥ ਦਇਆ ਕਪਾਹ ਸੰਤੋਖੁ ਸੂਤੁ ਜਤੁ ਗੰਢੀ ਸਤੁ ਵਟੁ ॥ ਏਹੁ ਜਨੇਊ ਜੀਅ ਕਾ ਹਈ ਤ ਪਾਡੇ ਘਤੁ ॥ ਨਾ ਏਹੁ ਤੁਟੈ ਨ ਮਲੁ ਲਗੈ ਨਾ ਏਹੁ ਜਲੈ ਨ ਜਾਇ ॥ ਧੰਨੁ ਸੁ ਮਾਣਸ ਨਾਨਕਾ ਜੋ ਗਲਿ ਚਲੇ ਪਾਇ ॥

Quatrain – (Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji are explaining the meanings of the shabad above) “Understand this sacred thread to be pure but only a few individuals can wear this. This sacred thread made of knowledge should be worn around the heart and this being will be great who has eradicated all the causes of distress.” 22.

“This individual will gain bliss both in this world and the next. They will gain respect from Dharamraj in the righteous court. If you have a sacred thread like this place this around my neck as it will destroy all sin.” 23.

“If one is to put a knot in the sacred thread that you give it then burns with the body once a person is cremated. This is in fact a false action that people do in order to show others but are in fact fools.” 24.

Pandit Hardayal Ji heard the beautiful words of Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji and became very pleased. All of his bodily hair was standing erect. He said, “I said before that when you are older I will hear your divine sermons within which there is nothing but truth.” 25.

“Only a few individuals will understand you while others with not. Listening to the words of Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji my mind has now become focused. My life has now become fruitful as Guru Nanak Dev Ji is the abode of the universe and I have become a client of the great bard.” 26.

“I am in complete bliss and can not find anything to say. My only inclination was to hear your words, Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji.” The other Brahmins and intellectuals were sat in the house of Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji all started to talk about the rituals of the sacred thread ceremony. 27.

“O Child this sacred thread is considered pure in accordance to the Vedas. From the beginning this has been considered pure and part of the Kshatri and Brahmin custom. This is considered as the protector of the faith.” 28.

“This ritual has been going since the advent of the demi god Brahma. The four sons of Brahma also wore this sacred thread. If we are to start a new custom then great child stop the old one first.” 29.

“For this reason continue the previous customs of our social castes. Why do you wish to change this?” After hearing these questions from the Brahmins, Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji replied in order to make them realise their false reasoning for the sacred thread.” 30.
