Countless musicians and heavenly deities such as Brahma, Visnu and Indra, sit at His door and recite His praises. Likewise, myriads of sicldhas, yogis,, celibates constantly contemplate upon His Name. Sages and seraphs proclaim His glory as do the heroes and mighty warriors. The entire creation all the continents, the worlds and the solar systems chant the excellences of the Supreme Being who is Timeless and whose Name is everlasting. He is the creator as well as preserver of all and His will prevails everywhere.
The recurring use of the word gavahi, i.e. `are singing.` in the hymn indicates the emphasis laid on the reciting of God`s praise. This is what one is adjured to take to. The Timeless Being is proclaimed to be self existent He is transcendant as well as immanent. He is nirankar, i.e. without form, yet He manifests himself in His creation.
The creation thus acquires a divine aspect and does not remain mere maya. To comprehend Him, one must be free from ego which is possible only when one realizes one`s insignificance in relation to His creation. So Daru, which shows all existence in obeisance at His Threshold, harmonizes man with the mystical rhythm of all cosmos, awakening in him consciousness of the Divine. The metre and rhyme of the So Daru resemble those of chhant and var and the language is mainly Punjabi, with some admixture of words, both in their tatsam and tadbhav forms, from Sanskrit, Persian and Braj.
