Mistaken Identity


ਭੇਖ ਦਿਖਾਵੈ ਸਚੁ ਨ ਕਮਾਵੈ ॥
ਕਹਤੋ ਮਹਲੀ ਨਿਕਟਿ ਨ ਆਵੈ ॥2॥

He wears religious robes, but he does not practice Truth

He says that he has found the Mansion of the Lord's Presence, but he cannot even get near it. ||2||
Guru Arjan Dev Ji in Raag Soohee on Pannaa 738

I am not sure of the difference between tuk and pankti, but I think tuk is the complete sentence from beginning.

ਹਲਤਿ ਪਲਤਿ ਮੁਖ ਊਜਲ ਹੋਈ ਹੈ ਨਿਤ ਧਿਆਈਐ ਹਰਿ ਪੁਰਖੁ ਨਿਰੰਜਨਾ ॥
We can search the shabad from tuk tatkara if we are sure of the exact starting of the tuk
Pankti usually refers to shabad when sung by ragies
Some ragi may sing it in such a way you'll not be sure of the exact starting word of thr tuk but still in kirtan it may be right
e.g. if above tuk is sung in this way:-
ਨਿਤ ਧਿਆਈਐ ਹਰਿ ਪੁਰਖੁ ਨਿਰੰਜਨਾ
ਹਲਤਿ ਪਲਤਿ ਮੁਖ ਊਜਲ ਹੋਈ ਹੈ
ਨਿਤ ਧਿਆਈਐ ਹਰਿ ਪੁਰਖੁ ਨਿਰੰਜਨਾ
then we refer to it as pankti
well interpratation of this Murakh could be wrong.
bhul chuk maaf

ps- thank you Msingh ji for helping me out with gurmukhi fonts

upinder kaur said...

sorry Satvinder I should have checked it before commenting.This is the correct explaination:-
Tuk is a complete sentence having a complete meaning.It comprises of all the words between two fullstops(viram).Whereas Pankti is the line. There are 19 lines(pankties)on each page of SGGS.The tuk:-
ਹਲਤਿ ਪਲਤਿ ਮੁਖ ਊਜਲ ਹੋਈ ਹੈ ਨਿਤ ਧਿਆਈਐ ਹਰਿ ਪੁਰਖੁ ਨਿਰੰਜਨਾ
is the pahili pankti(1st line) on ank-670(page no-670).
I am sorry for giving wrong information earlier, i shouldn't have acted so irresponsible.
