OverviewThis Sabad revealed by Guru Nanak Sahib in Rag Asa, is recorded on page 417 of the Guru Granth Sahib. There are seven stanzas in it. The stanza of rahau is separate from them. This Sabad imparts Divine wisdom along with giving information regarding Babur’s (1483-1530 CE) invasion of Hindustan (the Persian name for northern India).
In this Sabad, Guru Nanak Sahib states that IkOankar’s (the Divine) mystery cannot be fully known. IkOankar by Own-Self is pervading the creation by assuming various forms and watching over them. The beings receive comfort or suffering as per the will of IkOankar. If the being lives by inculcating the virtues of IkOankar, suffering will not affect them.
