Salok.
Gyan anjan gur dee-aa agi-aan andhayr binaas.
Har kirpa tay sant bhayti-aa nanak man pargaas.  1.

Dhan Dhan SatGur Sachey Patshah Ji SatGur Arjun Dev Ji has been so kind upon the entire world that He has very kindly given these words of divine wisdom – Puran Braham Gyan to us all.  Dhan Dhan SatGuru Ji’s every Shabad is Puran Braham Gyan.  Every Salok is Puran Braham Gyan.  Every Pauri is Puran Braham Gyan.  Please don’t just take it as just a scripture as this is Puran Braham Gyan. 

This is the Gyan Saroop of Dhan Dhan Paar Braham Pita Parmeshwar Ji.  That is why Dhan Dhan SatGur Sachey Patshah Ji has called GurBani the Guru, “Bani Guru Guru Hai Bani.”  Dhan Dhan SatGur Ji has also said, “Vaho Vaho Bani Nirankaar Hai,” that is why Bani is called GurBani.  The Gur means Dhan Dhan Paar Braham Pita Parmeshwar Ji and Bani is His word.  GurBani means the Shabad that has come directly from God. 

When we become a Puran Sant Hirda with Puran Jyot Parkash in our Hirda then all of our five senses and five Karam Indrees go into Puran Hukam.  Our mind is replaced by Param Jyot Puran Parkash.  We become Sat Roop, then whatever we say is Sat Bachan.  Whatever we say becomes a divine word, whatever we speak is divine wisdom.  Dhan Dhan SatGuru Sachey Patshah Sahibs Ji were Puran Sant SatGurus, so whatever they  said was the word of God that is why it was called GurBani, meaning the word of God.  Therefore, please take these divine words of the Guru as the word of God as there is no difference between God and the Guru. 

Those who trust in GurBani and dedicate themselves to the Guru with trust, devotion and love and  surrender to the Guru with Tunn, Munn and Dhann and do what GurBani is telling them to do are blessed with the GurParsaad of Naam, Naam Ki Kamai, Puran Bandgi and Seva.  This is what GurBani is all about – the GurParsaad – achieving the Infinite Divine Power and becoming one with this Infinite Divine Power.  This is what our human life is all about – achieving the GurParsaad and merger with this Infinite Divine Power.

Our human life is for:-

·         winning over Maya and going beyond three aspects of Maya,
·         winning over our own mind,
·         winning over the Panj Doots and Trishna,
·         replacing our mind with the Param Jyot Puran Parkash,
·         the transformation of our Hirda into a Sat Hirda,
·         filling our Hirda with the Puran Sachyari Rehat, which is the Rehat of Param Jyot Puran Parkash,
·         filling our Hirda with all of the Infinite Divine Powers and divine qualities,
·         achieving the Puran Tat Gyan, the Puran Braham Gyan.

Achieving Jivan Mukti is what our human life is all about.  Every other objective of our human life, which we have been working on all of our life, is a waste if we don’t realize this prime objective our life – achieving salvation.  Once we realize this then our priorities completely change, our lifestyle completely  changes, our deeds and actions completely change, our behavior completely changes and absolutely  everything completely changes.  This change is positive and for our betterment and starts moving us closer to the GurParsaad.  All of our Karni is transformed into Sat Ki Karni and our consciousness changes from Rajo and Tamo to Sato, which means our Karni becomes focused on Sat Karams and not on Panj Doots and Trishna. 

Focusing our consciousness on Sat Ki Karni brings us even closer to the GurParsaad.  This is all dependent on our destiny based on our Karni from previous lives.  Please take it for granted that we must have had Darshans of a Puran Sant SatGur in one of our previous lives and must have gone into the Sat Sang of such a soul at some point in the past if our consciousness starts to focus on Sat Ki Karni. 

Darshans of a Puran Sant at any time brings us closer to the GurParsaad.  Sat Sangat of a Puran Sant at any time carves our destiny in the right direction.  Listening to the Sat Bachans of a Puran Sant at any time leaves a permanent divine effect on us.  Earning the Sat Bachans of a Puran Sant by bringing them into our daily Karni creates our destiny to be blessed with GurParsaad at some time.  Seva of a Puran Sant at any time opens up the path to the Sach Khand for us at some future time.  This is what SatGur Sachey Patshah Ji is talking about in this divine Salok, “Har kirpa tay sant bhayti-aa.” 

Those who are focused on Sat Ki Karni are for sure to meet a Puran Sant.  The Infinite Divine Power of Sat in our Sat Ki Karni takes us to the Charan Sharan of a Puran Sant. 

Har Kirpa is the Infinite Divine Power of Dhan Dhan Shri Paar Braham Pita Parmeshwar Ji, which is sitting inside us and watching us while we are focused on Sat Ki Karni.  When our consciousness is focused on Sat Ki Karni, then this Infinite Divine Power paves a way for us that take us to the Charan Sharan of a Puran Sant. 

When we are then blessed with the Darshans of a Puran Sant and His divine blessings, His Sat Sangat, then we should take it for granted that the doors to the Dargah have been opened for us.  When we meet a Puran Sant then please take it for granted that we are very fortunate and that the path to Sach Khand is now open for us. 

There are some people who go into Samadhi the very moment they have Darshan of a Puran Sant.  Their becomes enlightened with the Param Jyot Puran Parkash (seeing the pure Divine Light) instantly.  All of their Bajjar Kapaats are opened instantantly.  Their Dassam Duaar is opened right away.  Their Sat Sarovars are all enlightened.  Such souls are blessed with the divine wisdom and all of their questions are answered from within without even asking for any answer.  All of their illusions, delusions, Bharams and Dubidha are dispelled and they give up everything at the Charan Sharan of the Puran Sant they meet.  For them this Puran Sant becomes their Guru.  This Puran Sant becomes God for them.  This Puran Sant becomes everything for them. 

They give their Tunn, Munn and Dhann at the Sat Charans of such a Puran Sant and then they do not look back at all.  Their Bandgi becomes real easy and without any effort they achieve the Param Padvi.  Everything for them is made so easy and smooth by their Guru.  The Infinite Divine Power within them takes over everything.  They are not even aware of when all this happens within themselves.  They don’t even know what is happening within them or when their Hirda transforms into a Sat Hirda. 

Such souls are taken out of the shackles of Maya by the Guru Sant SatGuru and are blessed with the Puran Braham Gyan.  They are blessed with Puran Tat Gyan and they merge in the Infinite Divine Power forever. 

There are many people who have been blessed with the GurParsaad of Naam in their mind.  There are many people who are also blessed with the GurParsaad of Naam, Naam Ki Kamai, Puran Bandgi and Seva.  However, out of these many blessed ones, there are still very few who save this GurParsaad and completely surrender to the Puran Sant SatGuru and do Naam Ki Kamai and achieve Puran Bandgi. 

Those who don’t dedicate themselves to the Guru, but are blessed with the GurParsaad, do still create their destiny to come back at some point in time and space to fulfill the words of the Puran Sant that blessed them with the GurParsaad. 

The bottom line is that you have to surrender yourself at the Charan Sharan of the Guru one day.  There is no other way out for you to get out of the shackles of Maya.  So why do you want to delay this freedom from being the slave of Maya?  Why not start marching towards merger with the Infinite Divine Power right now?  The GurParsaad cures all of our mental sicknesses – Panj Doots and Trishna and takes us out of this slavery and sets us free forever. 
 
Astpadi.
Sat sang antar prabh deethaa.
Naam parabhoo ka laagaa meethaa.
Sagal samagree aykas ghat maahi.
Anik rang naanaa daristaahi.
Na-o nidh amrit prabh ka naam.
Dayhee meh is ka bisraam.
Sunn samaadh anhat tah naad.
Kahan na jaa-ee achraj bismaad.
Tin daykhi-aa jis aap dikhaa-ay.
Nanak tis junn sojhee paa-ay.  1.

Dhan Dhan SatGur Sachey Patshah Ji is telling us the Mahima of the Sat Sang.  Sat is the Infinite Divine Power and Sang means with the Sat, means in the presence of Sat.  Sat is present only in a Puran Sant Hirda.  Sat appears only in a Puran Braham Gyani.  Sat appears only in a SatGuru.  Sat appears only in a Puran Khalsa.  Therefore, Sat Sang means where a Puran Sant is sitting.  Sat Sang means where there is a Puran Braham Gyani sitting, a SatGur is sitting, a Puran Khalsa is present. 

Sat Sang is the Sangat of a Puran Sant Puran Braham Gyani, a SatGur or a Puran Khalsa.  Where there is no such soul sittng, there is no Sat Sang.  Sat Sang is the Charan Sharan of a Puran Sant or a Puran Braham Gyani or a SatGur or a Puran Khalsa.  Where there is such a soul sitting the Dargah is right there.  All of the Infinite Divine Powers are present there.  There is no influence of Maya under the Chattar of a Puran Sant.  That is why SatGur Sachey Patshah Ji is telling us, “Sat sang antar prabh deethaa.”

This means we can realize the Infinite Divine Power of God inside us only in the Sat Sang.  We can meet God in the Sat Sang only.  We can merge in God only in the Sat Sang.  Only a Puran Sant can help us achieve Jivan Mukti.  The GurParsaad is available only at the Sat Charans of a Puran Sant.  That is why when we go to the Sat Sang our mind and Hirda goes into peace and as explained earlier some people go into Samadhi instantaneously.  Some people are blessed with Naam in their mind and Surat. 

Our rewards are dependent upon how much we give up at the Charan Sharan of the Puran Sant.  The Amrit under the Chattar of a Puran Sant is equally available to everyone who is sitting in the Sat Sang, but some have a very high level of trust, devotion and love in their Hirda and they completely give up everything at the Sat Charans of the Guru.  Such souls go into Samadhi instantaneously, whilst others are blessed according to their trust, devotion, love and dedication. 

All of the eternal treasures are contained in the GurParsaad of Naam and are available at the Sat Charans of the Puran Sant.  The Puran Sant is Naam Kaa Vapaari, meaning Naam is His business.  Naam Japna and Japaanaa, meaning helping others to do Naam Japna too, is His business. 

All of the Ridhis and Sidhis are the slave of the GurParsaad of Naam.  When we go into deep meditation – Samadhi and Sunn Samadhi, then we are blessed with the Ridhis and Sidhis as well.  But, please keep in our mind that the Ridhis and Sidhis are Maya, so don’t get entangled in these powers as there is a lot more to be achieved beyond them. 

Don’t become a slave of Ridhis and Sidhis, our destiny is to become the master of the Ridhis and Sidhis, our destiny is to become the master of Maya.  So don’t compromise with Ridhis and Sidhis.  If you do so then your spiritual progress will stop right there and you will not be able to become one with the Infinite Divine Power. 

This Infinite Divine Power is present within yourself and everything is contained within it.  There is nothing outside of this Infinite Divine Power of Akal Purakh.  The entire universe is absorbed in this Infinite Divine Power. 

To our naked eye every creation may appear to be different, but the Divine Truth is that every creation has been created by the Infinite Divine Power and is being operated by the Infinite Divine Power only.  There is no other power better or bigger than this Infinite Divine Power.  The very basis of our life is this Infinite Divine Power, the life inside our body is this Infinite Divine Power, the existence of our body is due to the divine Jyot, which is nothing but this Infinite Divine Power. 

When we achieve the GurParsaad of Naam and Naam goes into our mind, Surat, Hirda and body then we go into complete peace.  When we go into Sunn Samadhi then our mind, Hirda, soul and body everything goes into complete silence.  When all of our Bajjar Kapaats are opened then our Rom Rom goes into Naam and into complete peace.  When Naam travels to the Sat Sarovars then all of our Sat Sarovars are enlightened with Naam and our Dassam Duaar opens.  When our Dassam Duaar opens then we are blessed with the Panch Shabad Anhad in the Dassam Duaar.  Then we start hearing this divine music on a continuous basis.  This stage of spirituality is beyond description, this can only be experienced and felt physically, it cannot be explained in words. 

This Bismaad Janak – extremely surprising secret of Divinity is discovered and enjoyed by only those who are blessed with the GurParsaad.  Only God’s Infinite Divine Power can make it happen inside us.  Only Sat Sang can make it happen inside us because we can only be blessed with this GurParsaad in the Sat Sang and at the Sat Charans of a Puran Sant.

So antar so baahar anant.
Gat ghat bi-aap rahi-aa bhagvant.
Dharan maahi aakaas pa-i-aal.
Sarabh lok puran partipaal.
Ban tin parbat hai Paar Braham.
Jaisee aagi-aa taisaa karam.
Pa-un paanee baisantar maahi.

The breath inside our body is being run by the Infinite Divine Power.  The blood inside the veins of our body is being run by this Infinite Divine Power.  Our heart is pumping blood due to the presence of this Infinite Divine Power inside our body.  Stop for a second and ask what force is behind the pumping of our heart?  It is constantly pumping blood inside our body.  The circulation of blood inside our body is keeping our body alive and working.  The breath is providing oxygen to our blood and the blood is circulating through our body and brain and keeping us alive.  This is all scientific reasoning, which is based on research and experimentation and is a proven fact.  But, go a step further and ask the doctor what is the force behind my breath that is working continuously day and night, even when we are sleeping?  Also ask the doctor what is the force that is keeping the heart inside my body pumping?  What is the force that is keeping me alive and working?  If you find a scientific answer to these questions from your doctor or from any scientist around the world then please let us know! 

This is a Divine Truth that there is no logic behind our breath running by itself.  There is no logic behind the Divine Truth that our heart is pumping blood on a constant basis and where logic ends Divinity takes over.  Scientific logic and reasoning is only a small function of the human brain.  The human is the most creative creation of Almighty.  It is the most complex creation of the Creator.  It is the most beautiful creation of God.  It is so complex that even what little has been discovered so far just by medical science has already been divided into so many specialities.  For almost every part of our body there is a specialist.  Even with all these specialists, medical science is still unable to find out completely about the human body and  their research is on going. 

The question is how was this complex human machine made and what force is responsible for running it?  There is no science in the world that has been able to, nor will ever be able to find the logical answer as to the origin of all this.  There is only one way to know about this Infinite Divine Power and that is by becoming one with this Infinite Divine Power.  Only then are we able to realize its infiniteness, otherwise people continue to be limited by logic. 

This Infinite Divine Power is running our body, is running every creation, is present everywhere and is making everything happen in the entire universe.  This Infinite Divine Power is running the Earth around its axis as well.  This Infinite Divine Power brings the sunrise to gives us light.  This Infinite Divine Power keeps all of the planets in space together.  This Infinite Divine Power creates everything and keeps it running, just like He is running our breath and circulating our blood. 

This Infinite Divine Power prevails in the entire nature, the entire vegetation, in animals, insects, human beings, living and non-living things.  This Infinite Divine Power is present in air, water and fire as well.  GurBani has called air as the Guru and water as father, “Pawan Guru Pani Pita,” because these two elements are the basis of life for human beings, animals and all of the vegetation and forestry. 

Pawan Guru means the Infinite Divine Power in the form of air.  In water, oxygen and hydrogen are held together by this Infinite Divine Power.  Otherwise hydrogen is highly inflammable and oxygen helps combustion.  If this Infinite Divine Power was not there then this would become like a hydrogen bomb.  In this way this Infinite Divine Power keeps on creating, running and destroying the entire universe and is omnipresent. 

This Infinite Divine Power is present everywhere, in all corners, in every neutron and proton as well, in all directions and there is no place, there is no creation anywhere in the universe where this Infinite Divine Power is not present.  This Infinite Divine Power is achieved with the GurParsaad.   That is why Dhan Dhan SatGur Sachey Patshah Ji is urging upon us all the time and again and again to go to the source of the GurParsaad – the Sat Charans of a Puran Sant, Sat Charans of a Puran Braham Gyani, Sat Charans of a SatGur or Sat Charans of a Puran Khalsa.  Then only will we be able to realize this Infinite Divine Power within us. 
 
Ved puraan simrit meh daykh.
Sasee-ar soor nakh-yatar meh ayk.
Banee prabh kee sabh ko bolai.
Aap adol na kabhoo dolai.
Sarabh klaa kar khaylai khayl.
Mol na paa-ee-ai gunah amol.
Sarabh jot meh jaa kee jot.
Dhaar rahi-o su-aamee ot pot.
Gur parsaad bharam ka naas.
Nanak tin meh ayhu bisaas.  3.

Our trust for the Guru is the biggest winning divine attribute in us.  Being born as a human being we have been blessed with this divine power which we call trust.  This means that we have the capability to trust.  Trust in the Guru is trust in God.  Trust in the Guru’s word means we trust the Guru’s word as the word of God.  Trust in the Guru is Bandgi.  The Hirda that is full of trust for the Guru and the Guru’s word is the Hirda in Bandgi.  The Hirda that has no trust in the Guru and His word is not in Bandgi.  The Hirda that has trust in the Guru and His word is filled with devotion for the Guru.  The Hirda that is full of trust for the Guru and His word is filled with unconditional love for the Guru.

Trust in the Guru and His word gives birth to devotion and love for the Guru.  Trust, devotion and love are the foundation stone for Puran Bandgi.  This being the word of the Guru, it is a Divine Truth that those who go to the Charan Sharan of the Guru with trust, devotion and love are for sure to be blessed with the GurParsaad.  Then the GurParsaad kills all of your doubts, illusions, delusions and takes you out of duality.  As long as you are in doubts, illusions, delusions you will not be able to achieve any spiritual progress. 

As long as you are in doubts, illusions, delusions you are in duality.  Only the GurParsaad can take you out of the doubts, illusions and delusions.  Only the GurParsaad can take you out of duality.  When duality is killed then the Infinite Divine Power takes over and that can happen only with your trust in your Guru and His word.  Trust empowers you with devotion and love for your Guru and these infinite divine qualities  pave your way to the GurParsaad. 

The Guru is telling us that this Infinite Divine Power, which is nothing but God Himself, is the basis and foundation of all of the Dharam Granths, “Ved, Puraan and Simrit.”  These are the ancient Dharam Granths which were written by the Rishis and Munis.  People, since their inception, have been using and trying to practice the teachings of these Dharam Granths for leading a good life and to find a way to achieve Jivan Mukti.  The Guru is telling us that these Dharam Granths were also written by this Infinite Divine Power prevailing in those Rishis and Munis who wrote them. 

The same Infinite Divine Power is prevailing in the moon, the sun and the stars.  The entire planetary system is the creation of the Creator and is being run by His Infinite Divine Power.  This is the Infinite Divine Power that is keeping all of these planets and stars hanging in space.  Science will argue that there is the force of Gravity present in space that is holding these planets together and prevents them from colliding into each other.  But, our question to the scientists is what is the source of this force of Gravity and other forces that are keeping the entire solar system in place and operating?  Do they know how much power is needed to keep the entire universe in place as it is?  How will they calculate the force or power needed to keep the entire solar system in place the way it is at any moment?  Will they be able to measure the force or power that is keeping these planets together in time and space?  What is the logic behind the existence of such a complex solar system and the many other solar systems in the universe that are still unknown to human beings?

As we write, we are overwhelmed by this thought and have nothing else to believe other than that there is only one Infinite Divine Power that is keeping all of the universe together the way it is at any point of time in space and there is no logic behind it.  There is no logic behind infinity and cannot be measured by the human brain.  What cannot be measured by the human brain is Divinity – the Infinite Divine Power. 

The Guru’s word prevails everywhere.  The essence of the Guru’s word is the Infinite Divine Power.  The Guru’s word is the Eternal Truth.  The Guru’s word is Sat.  The Guru’s word is complete so is filled with Infinite Divine Power.  The Guru’s word is Atal – stable forever, because it is filled with Infinite Divine Power and this Infinite Divine Power is ATAL – it never changes.  It has not changed since its beginning.  It is the same now and will remain so for all Ages to come, “Aad Sach  Jugaad Sach.  Hai Bhi Sach Nanak Hosi Bhi Sach.” 

The Hukam of Akal Purakh is Atal as well.  His Hukam is carried by His Infinite Divine Power, therefore, His Hukam is Atal as well.  That is why this Infinite Divine Power has been given the noun of Guneh Amol.   The infinite divine qualities are established in Sat, that is why His Naam is Sat Naam.  Therefore, His divine qualities are His Infinite Divine Powers which cannot be measured by human brain. 

Every creation is in existence because of His Jyot.  All human beings are in existence because of His Jyot.  All plants and animals and living beings are in existence because of His Jyot.  This Jyot in every creation is called the Infinite Divine Power – Sargun Saroop.  The Infinite Divine Power prevails in every creation in the form of this Jyot and by way of this Jyot He is Omnipresent in every creation. 

Sant junnaa ka paykhan sabh braham.
Sant junnaa kai hirdai sabh dharam.
Sant junnaa suneh subh bachan.
Sarabh bi-aapee raam sang rachan.
Jin jaataa tis kee ih Rehat.
Sat bachan sadhu sabh kahat.
Jo jo ho-ay so-ee sukh maanai.
Karan karaavanhaar prabh jaanai.
Antar basay baahar bhee ohee.
Nanak darsan daykh sabh mohee.  4.

Dhan Dhan SatGur Sachey Patshah Ji is singing the Mahima of a Sant in this Pauri.  A Sant is the one who has been taken over by this Infinite Divine Power.  For Him this Infinite Divine Power, which we call Paar Braham, is every thing.  He sees this Infinite Divine Power in every creation.  In other words to experience and see God in every creation you will have to become a Sant. 

Dharam means union with God and this is the real religion,  the only true divine religion.  God appears in the Hirda of a Puran Sant or to make it easy for us, God appears in the form of a Puran Sant amongst the masses to show them how to become a Sant and help them to also transform into a Sant Hirda. 

Sant means the one who has merged in Sat, the one who has lost His identity and individuality and given up everything to Sat, who has ended himself in the Sat, who has merged in the Infinite Divine Power of Sat.  He becomes inseparable from this Infinite Divine Power forever.  He merges and becomes one with this Infinite Divine Power which is prevailing in the entire creation. 

Sant is Sat Roop and hears, speaks, sees, deliver and serves the Sat.  All of His actions and deeds are truthful deeds.  Whatever He does is for the betterment of the masses.  Whatever He speaks is the Truth.  Whatever He writes is the Truth.  Whatever He delivers is the Sat and He serves only Sat.  This is the way of life of a Sant. 

Living absored in God is the life of a Sant.  Praising the infinite divine qualities of God, praising the ones who are absorbed in God and delivering the message of God is the way of life of a Sant.  Therefore, living such a life is the real divine Rehat.  Becoming a Sant Hirda is the real divine Rehat.  Living absorbed in the Infinite Divine Power of Dhan Dhan Paar Braham Pita Parmeshwar Ji is the real Rehat.  Living in Puran Braham Gyan is the real divine Rehat.  Living absorbed in Atam Ras is the real divine Rehat. 

Whatever the Sant says is Puran Sat.  Whatever He delivers is Puran Tat Gyan.  All of His five senses and five Karam Indrees are always and forever are in the Puran Hukam.  So whatever He does, speaks and delivers is in Puran Hukam.  This is important to know because there are a lot of people that go into various kinds of confusions and illusions – Bharams and doubts when they meet such a soul. 

Please never indulge in slandering of such a soul.  The punishments for the slanderers are very tough and painful.  All of these punishments have been presented in Astpadi 13 of Sukhmani Sahib.  If we don’t want to go into the Sat Sang don’t go, that is better than going there with a negative view point.  Slandering a Sant makes life and destiny very sorrowful and painful.  Slandering of a Sant is nothing less than the slandering of God Himself. 

The Sant takes your poison out and gives you Amrit.  All of His words are Amrit Bachans and Sat Bachans and they are Puran Sat.  Therefore, pointing a finger at a Sant is very dangerous act for anyone.  The Sant is a living God on Earth.  His word is the word of God.  He sees God everywhere and in every one.  He is single vision – Ik Drisht.  His Drisht is Amrit.  He is the source of Amrit for the entire creation.  He is the source of GurParsaad.  Wherever He is sitting the Dargah is right there.  He prevails in every creation and everywhere.  Trust in this divine wisdom so that when you have Darshans of such a soul you become blessed with the GurParsaad.

Aap sat kee-aa sabh sat.
Tis prabh tay saglee utpat.
Tis bhaavai taa karay bisthaar.
Tis bhaavai taa aykankaar.
Anik klaa lakhee nah jaa-ay.
Jis bhaavai tis la-ay milaa-ay.
Kavan nikat kavan kahee-ai door.
Aapay aap aap bharpoor.
Antargat jis aap junnaa-ay.
Nanak tis junn aap bujhaa-ay.  5.

Dhan Dhan Sachey Patshah Ji Paar Braham Pita Parmeshwar Ji is Sat and all He does is Sat.  Sat is the Infinite Divine Power.  Dhan Dhan SatGur Sachey Patshah Ji Nanak Dev Ji Maharaj has very kindly given us this Puran Braham Gyan in the Mool Manter itself, “Ik Oankaar Sat Naam.” 

Dhan Dhan SatGur Pancham Patshah Ji is very kindly repeating the same truth here.  The basic foundation of the Infinite Divine Power is the Sat – Truth.  All of His divine laws are Sat.  All of  His words are Sat.  His words are transmitted to the masses via those souls who have become Sat. 

SatGuru Sahibs are Sat Roop, that is why they are called SatGuru.  The word of Sat – God, is transmitted through these souls who have become Sat.  Sat is the Param Jyot Puran Parkash.  Sat are all of the infinite divine qualities of Paar Braham Pita Parmeshwar.  Sat is His Hukam.  Sat is His Bhagat.  The entire creation has been born from this Infinite Divine Power of Sat.  The basic foundation of every creation is Sat.  That is why His Naam is Sat and has been given the noun of Sat Naam by Dhan Dhan SatGuru Nanak Dev Ji Maharaj.  Therefore, Akal Purakh is Sat and the entire creation has originated from Sat and is run and operated by this infinite power of Sat. 

He is the only Creator.  He is the only Doer.  Creation and destruction is a part of His divine play and the basic foundation of this play is the Truth – Sat.  Every creation that is created in time and space has to meet its end.  End is destruction, beginning is birth.  The birth and destruction takes place according to His Hukam – His divine laws.  GurBani is nothing but a description of His divine laws.  Only His divine laws prevails and He prevails through His divine laws in the entire creation. 

His justice is based on Sat and cannot be challenged anywhere in the universe.  His justice is His Hukam which is based on Sat.  Everything happens in accordance to His Hukam – His divine laws.  His divine laws are followed by each and every creation.  The ones who accept His Hukam become Dhan Dhan and the those who fight with His Hukam and complain always lose.  At the end of His play there is only Him – or His play ends up in Him. 

When we realize Him completely that brings an end to our individuality and identity and we become one with Him.  Our self is completely destroyed, which means our Haumai is completely destroyed and only one Infinite Divine Power takes over us and prevails. 

His divine powers are infinite and are beyond description.  All His divine qualities are infinite in nature.  His divine qualites are His infinite divine treasures.  Nobody has been able to discover His divine powers completely, that is why He is infinite and beyond description.  No words can describe Him completely.  We can just get a glimpse of His Infinite Divine Powers, but it is not possible to know all His Infinite Divine Powers. 

Klaa means the Infinite Divine Powers of Akal Purakh Ji.  Only His Infinite Divine Power can make us meet Him and be one with Him or merge in Him.  This Infinite Divine Power is available to us all through the GurParsaad.  The source of the GurParsaad is a Puran Sant.  God is living inside us, our soul is the divine power.  All of the divine powers are present inside us, in our soul.  The Jyot is present inside our Hirda already.  The GurParsaad given by a Sant ignites this Jyot and transforms it to a Param Jyot. 

The Param Jyot is Param Atma and transforms our Hirda into a Sat Hirda.  The GurParsaad is blessed to those whom He wants to be blessed.  To achieve His pleasure we have to focus on Sat Ki Karni – Sat Naam Simran, Sat Naam Ki Kamai.  Sat Ki Seva paves our way to His pleasure and His pleasure brings us the GurParsaad.  The GurParsaad transforms us completely and leads us to salvation.  Therefore, please focus on Sat Ki Karni.   

Sarabh bhoot aap vartaaraa.
Sarabh nain aap paykhanhaaraa.
Sagal samagree jaa ka tanaa.
Aapan jas aap hee sunaa.
Aavan jaan ik khayl banaa-i-aa.
Aagi-aakaaree keenee maa-i-aa.
Sabh kai madh alipato rahai.
Jo kichh kahnaa so aapay kahai.
Aagi-aa aavai aagi-aa jaa-ay.
Nanak jaa bhaavai taa la-ay samaa-ay.  6.

The creation has been created in so many forms, colors, shapes and sizes by the Creator.  However, no matter what form, color, shape or size the creation may be, the Creator prevails in all of His creations.   No creation can remain in existence without the presence of the Creator’s Infinite Divine Power.  Please take it for granted that in each and every creation God Himself is pervading.  Therefore, in every human body as well, God’s presence is inevitable.  That being the Divine Truth, it is true that He is watching through everyone’s eyes as well. 

When we reach that level of spirituality we experience that the truth of the person sitting in front of us comes out of them by itself.  No matter how much they try to conceal it or deny it, they tell us the truth.  When we have achieved the Param Padvi and our Hirda gets transformed into a Sant Hirda and goes into Puran Sachyari Rehat and we become a Sat Roop, then whenever anybody comes to meet us, their truth will come out very clearly in front of us by itself. 

Some Sant Maha Purakhs are blessed with this divine power to read the mind of the people sitting in front of them.  But, this is a Divine Truth that the truth will come out by itself without the Puran Sant doing anything or asking anything.  In the presence of a completely truthful person the Truth prevails by itself.  Therefore, while performing your daily deeds, whether at home, or at work or wherever you are and whatever you may be doing, please keep in mind that the Infinite Divine Power is present everywhere and is watching you.  This will prevent you performing any untruthful deeds and will save you from carving a painful destiny.  Watching your daily deeds is an integral part of your Bandgi process. 

Whilst doing Naam Simran you may have ego that it is you doing it.  But, guess who is really doing the Naam Simran?  Who is sitting inside your body in the real divine sense doing Naam Simran?  When your breath is not in your body’s control, when your blood circulation is not in your body’s control, then how can it be you doing Naam Simran?  You are being controlled by your breath and your blood circulation.  And your blood and breath is being run by the Infinite Divine Power.  So is “your” Naam Simran not being run by this Infinite Divine Power as well?  Therefore, “your” body is in existence due to this Infinite Divine Power only and whatever you think “your” body performs is actually being performed by this Infinite Divine Power only. 

In the same way, each and every creation is being operated and run by this Infinite Divine Power.  That is why it is said that this Infinite Divine Power is Omnipresent and prevails everywhere.  Therefore, this Infinite Divine Power speaks and hears by itself.  This Infinite Divine Power does it and enjoys it by Itself.  When we realize this Divine Truth in our real life then we find that Naam Simran is going on by itself everywhere inside our body by itself.  The only thing is that as a normal human being you don’t have that sixth sense – the divine sense, with which you can see, hear and feel this Naam Simran going on inside you on a continuous basis.  However, when through your Bandgi process with the GurParsaad you realize this Divine Truth then you start hearing the vibrations of Naam everywhere in your body.  This happens because your own identity is lost, your individuality is killed, your Haumai is finished and the Infinite Divine Power takes over everything for us and makes you one with this Himself. 

Creation and destruction is His divine play.  Reincarnation is His divine play.  The entire play is run under Maya by the Almighty.  Maya reports to Akal Purakh as Maya is His creation too.  He has created Maya to run this world.  There are three aspects of Maya.   Those people who are the slaves of the Rajo and Tamo aspects are lost in this web of Maya.  Those people who are focused on the Sato aspect know that they have to get out of this rule of Maya.  They continue to stay focused on Sato and one day are blessed with the GurParsaad.  They are taken out of the slavery of Maya into the kingdom of the Infinite Divine Power.  Such souls are blessed with the detachment, fearlessness and are freed from the shackles of Maya. 

Those who are blessed with understanding this divine play and how Maya operates are also blessed with the GurParsaad which takes them out of the shackles of Maya.  Creation and destruction all happens according to the divine laws.  Our birth and death is also in accordance with the divine laws.  There is nothing that happens outside the jurisdiction of the divine laws.  Those people who focus on this Infinite Divine Power are blessed with the GurParsaad and eventually become one with Him.

Is tay ho-ay so naahee buraa.
Orai kahhu kinai kachh karaa.
Aap bhalaa kartoot at neekee.
Aapay jaanai apnay jee kee.
Aap saach dhaaree sabh saach.
Ot pot aapan sang raach.
Taa kee Gat mit kahee na jaa-ay.
Doosar ho-ay ta sojhee paa-ay.
Tis ka kee-aa sabh parvaan.

People frequently start complaining when things go wrong for them.  When they are in trouble they  start complaining.  Whenever they are in pain and sorrow they go into the mode of complaining.  This complaining is to God.  They ask, “why did God do this to me?”   They think that they have never done anything wrong to anyone and further complain, “what did I do wrong for which God is now punishing me?”  This is a normal part of people’s behaviour to think that they never do anything wrong to anybody.  However, when they critically analyse their behavior, they find that they have done and still do many wrong things, some of which are harmful to others.

According to the divine laws our destiny is based on our own Karni.  It may be our past Karni in this life or our Karni from our previous lives.  Our Karni carves our own destiny.  In this way, we are responsible for our own destiny, we write our own destiny.  Therefore, people must have done something stupid or wrong for which they have to pay now in the form of problems, pains, sorrows, mental and physical sicknesses and so on. 

As we are responsible for our own Karni and for our own destiny then where is the question of anybody doing anything wrong to us?  And how can God do anything wrong to us?  All He wants us to do is to understand that whatever we sow so shall we reap and focus our Karni accordingly. 

At the same time He is infinitely kind and forgiving.  He doesn’t even look at your sins and bad deeds and is constantly waiting for you to come back to Him and as soon as you do come back to Him He forgives you instantly.  He forgives you for all of your sins and bad deeds and accepts you as His Suhaagan.  The thing that everyone needs to understand is that He is the divine law maker and all He wants us to do is to follow His divine laws and lead our life accordingly. 

GurMat is His constitution and all He wants us to do is follow the divine laws written in His constitution.  His kingdom is managed by His constitution, which is called GurMat – the divine wisdom.  Following GurMat keep us out of trouble.  His constitution is based on the Truth, His constitution is Sat.  So how can He do anything bad to anyone?  He is Nirvair – no animosity with anybody.  His love for us and for every creation is infinite.  Nothing can challenge His love for us and mind it His love is unconditional. 

What can we give Him?  His langauge is love, His Bandgi is love, all His Infinite Divine Powers are sitting on the foundation of love.  Love is God and God is love.  Love is another name of this Infinite Divine Power, which is Sat Saroop. 

All of His creation is based on this foundation of Sat.  All of His divine laws are based on Sat.  All of His GurBani is Sat.  All of His Sants, Bhagats, Braham Gyanis, SatGurus and Khalsas are Sat.  Whatever He does is all Sat.  His Infinite Divine Power is Sat that is why His Naam is Sat Naam.  Those who become Sat Roop are absorbed in Him completely.  We realize all of these divine things only by becoming Sat Roop, which makes us one with Him, which merges us with Him. 

This is all GurParsaad, that is why His play is a GurParsaadi Khel.  His play can be understood and experienced only with His GurParsaad.  We can get a glimpse of His Infinite Divine Powers only with the GurParsaad. 

He is unique, there is none there who can understand Him completely.  Only He knows His divine powers.  There is nobody else who can judge His divine powers.  His divine powers are infinite, so there is no one who can possibly judge His divine powers.  The wise thing to do is to accept that He is the Infinite Divine Power and to focus on Him.  Only then are we able to achieve the GurParsaad and realize Him and our own self as well. 

Jo jaanai tis sada sukh ho-ay.
Ap milaa-ay la-ay prabh so-ay.
Oh dhanvant kulvant pativant.
Jeevan mukat jis ridai bhagvant.
Dhan dhan dhan junn aa-i-aa.
Jis parsaad sabh jagat taraa-i-aa.
Jan aavan ka ihai su-aa-o.
Jan kai sang chit aavai naa-o.
Aap mukat mukat karai sansaar.
Nanak tis junn ka-o sada namaskaar.  8.23.

Those who realize this Infinite Divine Power achieve a never ending eternal happiness.  This eternal happiness is called Sat Chit Anand.  The Hirda gets filled with this eternal happiness and it feels like we have achieved everything.  Our mind gets filled with this divine joy.  Our mind is replaced with the Param Jyot.  Our Hirda gets filled with Puran Jyot Parkash.  Our Hirda goes into Puran Sachyari Rehat – Rehat of winning over Maya.  Our Rom Rom dances with joy as it vibrates with the Naam.  Our body gets filled with Amrit and flows out of our body.  We see the Divine Light emitting from our entire body.  This stage of Bandgi is inexplainable.  This stage of Bandgi is beyond description.  The bottom line is that when we become one with this Infinite Divine Power, we merge in this Infinite Divine Power. 

The highest level of the GurParsaad that we are blessed with is enacting His Hukam.  All of our senses and Karam Indrees go into Puran Hukam – under direct control of Param Jyot Puran Parkash – the Infinite Divine Power.  Such a soul becomes Dhan Dhan by being blessed with all of the eternal treasures.  Not only this, but this divine blessing is carried out to 21 generations of our family – Kul.  This is a divine gift for the entire Kul and coming 21 Kuls.  This is the highest Daat we can get from Akal Purakh, there is no Daat superior than this Daat.

Our human life becomes a noble birth as we realize its divine objective.  That is why those who achieve this divine stage, their parents – Maat-Pita, are Dhan Dhan, their Kul is Dhan Dhan, the mother who gives birth to such a soul is Dhan Dhan.  The Guru is telling us that when Naam goes into our Hirda and our Hirda is transformed into a Sat Hirda then we are blessed with Jivan Mukti. 

Such souls are rare though, perhaps only one in tens of millions is blessed with this highest spiritual status.  Such souls are called Puran Sant, Puran Braham Gyani, SatGur or a Puran Khalsa.  Their job is to unite the world with Naam, Naam Simran, Naam Ki Kamai, Puran Bandgi and Seva.  Saving the world from the onslaught of Maya is the purpose of their life.  Serving and delivering the GurParsaad is their life.  Absorbing poison and giving Amrit is their Bandgi and Seva and this is the highest level of Seva that anybody can perform.  They show the path to Jivan Mukti to the entire world and they bring Jivan Mukti to the masses.  The entire world is their family, the entire creation is their family and they deliver the Truth to each and every creation.  That is why when we are blessed with the Sat Sangat of such a Maha Purakh then our mind and Hirda goes into peace.  For some people, just having their Darshan brings GurParsaad and they go into Samadhi instantaneously.  Others are blessed with the GurParsaad and Naam goes into their mind right away.  Just having their Darshan others are motivated to focus on Naam Simran. 

Uniting people with Naam is the highest Seva, that is why SatGur Sachey Patshah Ji is bowing Himself to such a soul forever.  Dhan Dhan SatGuru Sahibs have always and forever given their blessings to such souls who serve the masses and bring them Jivan Mukti.  They are always and forever with such souls who are blessed with this kind of Seva – delivering the Eternal Truth to the masses, delivering the GurParsaad to the masses, delivering the Amrit to the entire world.
