Eik Baba Akaal Roop

Bhai Gurdas Ji – Vaar 1, Pauri 35

ਫਿਰਿ ਬਾਬਾ ਗਇਆ ਬਗ਼ਦਾਦ ਨੋ ਬਾਹਰਿ ਜਾਇ ਕੀਆ ਅਸਥਾਨਾ।

From Mecca Baba went to Baghdad and stayed outside the city.

ਇਕ ਬਾਬਾ ਅਕਾਲ ਰੂਪੁ ਦੂਜਾ ਰਬਾਬੀ ਮਰਦਾਨਾ।
Firstly, Baba himself was in the form of Timeless
and secondly, he had his companion Mardana,
the rebaab player.

ਦਿਤੀ ਬਾਂਗਿ ਨਿਵਾਜਿ ਕਰਿ ਸੁੰਨਿ ਸਮਾਨਿ ਹੋਆ ਜਹਾਨਾ।
For namaz (in his own style), Baba gave call,
listening to which the whole world went into absolute silence.

ਸੁੰਨ ਮੁੰਨਿ ਨਗਰੀ ਭਈ ਦੇਖਿ ਪੀਰ ਭਇਆ ਹੈਰਾਨਾ।
The whole city became quiet and lo! to behold it,
the pir (of the town) also got wonderstruck.

ਵੇਖੈ ਧਿਆਨੁ ਲਗਾਇ ਕਰਿ ਇਕੁ ਫਕੀਰੁ ਵਡਾ ਮਸਤਾਨਾ।
Observing minutely he found
(in the form of Baba Nanak) an exhilerated faquir.

ਪੁਛਿਆ ਫਿਰਿ ਕੈ ਦਸਤਗੀਰ ਕਉਣ ਫਕੀਰ ਕਿਸ ਕਾ ਘਰਿਹਾਨਾ?
Pir Dastegir asked him, which category of
faquir you belong to and what is your parentage.

ਨਾਨਕ ਕਲਿ ਵਿਚਿ ਆਇਆ ਰਬੁ ਫਕੀਰੁ ਇਕੋ ਪਹਿਚਾਨਾ।
(Mardana told) He is Nanak, who has come into kaljug, and,
he recognises God and His faquirs as one.

ਧਰਤਿ ਆਕਾਸ ਚਹੂ ਦਿਸ ਜਾਨਾ ॥੩੫॥
He is known in all the directions besides earth and sky.
