The narrative seamlessly transitions to the benevolence of the All-Pervasive, the Guru as the Earth-Force protecting the servants. The description of a forgiving Being embracing and erasing all vices creates an imagery of boundless compassion.

The narrative seamlessly transitions to the benevolence of the All-Pervasive, the Guru as the Earth-Force protecting the servants. The description of a forgiving Being embracing and erasing all vices creates an imagery of boundless compassion. It becomes a focal point for reflection – a reminder of the ever-present forgiveness and the Divine's capacity to dissolve shortcomings.

In four directions, extends Own strength,
and places the Hand on the head.
Glance of grace bestowed, votary’s pain ended.  1.

All-Pervasive, Guru the Earth-Force, protected the servants.
Compassionate, forgiving Being embraces,
and erases all vices. Reflect. 

Whatever is asked from the Ruler, that’s what is given.
Whatever Nanak the votary utters from the mouth,
becomes eternal here and there.  2.
     Guru Arjan Sahib in Rag Dhanasari  |  Guru Granth Sahib 681
