For understanding the meaning of first line it is utmost important to understand what is Naam, which is very clearly defined in the Mool Manter. Infact the entire Jap Ji can only be understood if you understand the Mool Manter.

 

This sevak with Gurkirpa have written an article on Jap Ji, which is just purely based on spiritual experiences and understanding and not based on any philosophy etc.  If you can take some time to read this article which is attached herewith for your convenience, you might get some help in understanding the Gurparsadi Naam.

 

Niranjan is Akal Purakh’s Kirtam Naam and not the one He has given Himself – which is Sat Naam, and there is a very rare person – one in millions (Bani Virley Ke Ghar Jaye), who will understand in his heart of hearts and accept it in his mind the true Naam – Sat Naam. 

 

The Anmolak Rattan Hira is Naam – Sat Naam – there is no price for this Naam – Keemat Kahi Naa Jaye Keemat Dai Naa Jaye – it is a priceless diamond – its value is unlimited – it is infinite like Akal Purakh Himself – this is the biggest Daat one can get with Gurkirpa because it is Gurparsadi – Je Wad Aap Te Wad Teri Daat.  Only a jeweler can know the price of a diamond – similarly only that mind will understand the value of this priceless diamond – Sat Naam who is blessed by Akal Purakh and this is what is meant by – Je Ko Man Jane Man Koi.

 

So if you are looking in more simpler words – the priceless diamond – Sat Naam of Akal Purakh (Niranjan) is infinite like Himself, which is recognized and accepted only by a very rare mind (one in tens of millions – Kottan Me Nanak Kou Narayan Jeh Cheet) with full belief and commitment  – Puran Shardha and Vishvaas.  Such a person is blessed by Shri Akal Purakh Ji and will advance in spirituality and will eventually obtain Jivan Mukti.
