The first pauri is accompanied by three saloks. The first and second saloks contain two lines each, while the third salok contains four lines. In the first two saloks, after an invocation to the Guru, the importance of the Guru in human life is stressed. In the third salok, it is clarified that individuals without the Guru (Wisdom), might appear to be wise, intelligent, and successful from a worldly perspective, but despite this, they remain spiritually valueless (without virtues). Without the Guru’s wisdom, human life remains unilluminated and worthless. The pauri explains that the formless One first created Ownself and Nam, and then created the creation, before pervading within it.
