Jap[u]... Aadh[i] Sach[u]... Nanak Hosee Bhee Sach[u]

Jap[u]... Aadh[i] Sach[u]... Nanak Hosee Bhee Sach[u]
True/Real/Presence of Vaheguru is within every time and outside of it as well... Do not ask the question of when Vaheguru were?, when Vaheguru are?, when will Vaheguru be?... Vaheguru are... there is no "when?" question. Away from the 5W questions

Satguru Ji instructs the Sikh to now Jap. Realize the Form of Paarbraham.
TN = Translator’s Note
Question: What is the Form of Paarbrahm like?
This is Maharaj's Answer:
ਆਦਿ ਸਚੁ ਜੁਗਾਦਿ ਸਚੁ ॥
ਹੈ ਭੀ ਸਚੁ ਨਾਨਕ ਹੋਸੀ ਭੀ ਸਚੁ ॥੧॥
Aadh[i] Sach[u] Jugaadh[i] Sach[u]
Hai Bhee Sach[u] Nanak Hosee Bhee Sach[u]

Padh-Arthh (word-by-word)
ਆਦਿ (Aadh[i]): First, from the beginning, Primal |
ਸਚੁ (Sach[u]): True |
ਜੁਗਾਦਿ ਸਚੁ (Jugaadh[i] Sach[u]): True from the beginning of all ages,
True in past |
ਹੈ ਭੀ ਸਚੁ (Hai Bhee Sach[u]): True even now, True when this world was created...  True in the present moment as well |
ਨਾਨਕ (Nanak): Oh Nanak!
ਹੋਸੀ ਭੀ ਸਚੁ (Hosee Bhee Sach[u]): ... True in the future and beyond that as well
Oh Sikh! PaarBrahm-Vaheguru are the beginning of everything. PaarBrahm-Vaheguru are the Truth. The human body is subject to 6 changes: birth, becoming weak, becoming old, subject to change, becoming thin, and dying. Paarbrahm-Vaheguru are not subject to any of these. The human body also goes from childhood to adulthood then old age and finally, death. Paarbrahm-Vaheguru were True in the beginning, True when the Yuga's began, they remained consistent throughout the Yuga's and do not change.

Bhai Jagraj Singh explaining what Yug/Jug is 

(TN: a Yug or Jug is a traditional Indian measurement of time. There are 4 Jug's, each Jug had different characteristics. First is Satyug [Age of Truth ~ very easy to become enlightened], second is Tretayug, third is Dwapuryug, fourth is Kalyug [Age of Darkness] in which we currently live in. The length of Satyug is 1,728,000 years long, the length of Tretayug is 1,296,000 years long, the length of Dwapuryug is 864,000 years long, and the length of Kalyug is 432,000 years long. Each yug decays in spiritual & moral connection but also in length of time. We are currently in the relative beginning of Kalyug. These Yug/Jug's work in cycles. So following Kalyug, there will be another Satyug)

Oh People, don't be mistaken in doubt... The Creation is in The Creator, The Creator is in The Creation... (do not separate them, all is of & from Vaheguru)

Both Creator and creation (Purakh-Prakirthee/Consciousness-Material) are One due to the fact They are in Union [another meaning for Yug]. When creation was created there was no separation from the Creator. Vaheguru remained the Only Reality. ਹੈ ਭੀ (Hai Bhee) as in when this world was created then even at that time Vaheguru was True (TN: True as in They were real, providing existence to everything). There is no second form that created the world separate from Akaal Purakh. (Nanak Hosee Bhee Sach[u]) Dhan Dhan Sri Guru Nanak Dev Sahib Ji Maharaj are saying that when the world no longer exists, even then Vaheguru will truly remain. (TN: Vaheguru gives consciousness/awareness to everyone in the past, present, & future... They are the underlying quality. Vaheguru is not bound to time but rather, time & space is dependent on Vaheguru). Recognize the Paarbraham-Vaheguru who is Ik-Ras (Consistently-One) between the 3 tenses of the world: creation, existence, and destruction.
Oh Sikh! Recognize this Vaheguru! This Salok also describes Paarbrahm-Vaheguru and thus, can be referred to as a Manglacharan

Another Arth for  ਜਪੁ (Jap[u]):
Maharaj is instructing a Sikh to ਜਪੁ (Jap[u]): recognize your own form!
The Sikh wonders: What is my form like?
Answer: ਆਦਿ ਸਚੁ (Aadh[i] Sach[u]) | Oh Sikh! Your Form existed before everything. Before the body, the senses, praan [life-forces, gasses of body], anthahkaran (man~sensory input storage, chit~consciousness/awareness, buddh~decision making faculty, ahang~separate sense of self) These other things are all false... Your Form is True/Real. Your form is not subject to end within the three tenses. Three tenses: ਜੁਗਾਦਿ ਸਚੁ (Jugaadh[i] Sach[u]) before the yug's, when there was no creation... even then you were True as well, ie referring to the past. ਹੈ ਭੀ ਸਚੁ (Hai Bhee Sach[u]) Your Form is True even now... The body, senses, praan, anthishkaran... all of these are not your form. How so? These are all a result of the 5 elements. You are not a result of anything/not an action. ਨਾਨਕ ਹੋਸੀ ਭੀ ਸਚੁ (Nanak Hosee Bhee Sach[u]) = The body among other things which you suppose to be your form, that body is always changing every second. Even within each age category of childhood, adulthood, old age, and death. These are not your form, these are all temporary and false. You are True. True and false do not coexist. Like the relationship between light and darkness. This is why... oh Sikh! Recognize and understand Your Form. This is the future tense.
Kavi Ji breaking down the akhars/letters in Nanak & Explanation
Now, the multiple meanings of the Blessed Name: Sri ਨਾਨਕ (Nanak). Where there are not any multitudes, that is ‘Nanak’ (N-anak). ਨਾ (Na) is refers to a masculine name.  The (N) with a Kannaa (long-aa sound) becomes ਨਾ (Naa). If you separate the (N) and the (A) which come out of this sound then it leaves the word ਅਨਕ (anak) (TN: thus, N [negation] Anak [multitudes]).
If you do the same for the (A) after the second (N) then it becomes ਅਨਅਕ (ANAK) then the Name can be explained if written by individual sound: ਨਾਅਨਅਕ (Na-a-n-a-k). ਅਕ (Ak) refers to suffering. The One Being who does not go through suffering is Dhan Guru Nanak.
Alankaars (Literary Devices)
This Salok contains ਭਾਵਕ ਅਲੰਕਾਰ (Bhaavak Alankaar).
Qualities: Where there is discussion of the past, present, and future
Refer to that as a Bhaavak alankaar.
The One Consistent Truth is being discussed in the context of past, present, & future... this is why this is a ਭਾਵਕ ਅਲੰਕਾਰ (Bhaavak Alaankar). The Sikh reflects: what is my form like and what is Brahm-Vaheguru’s Form like? The question is followed by an answer, which is why this is also an ਉਤਰ ਅਲੰਕਾਰ (Outhar-alankaar because Q&A is featured).

All we've ever known is bound to time, so know Vaheguru is not bound to this. Accepting this, one realizes we have not truly known Vaheguru either. 

If someone asks: There are only three tenses. So why is a fourth one included: ਜੁਗਾਦਿ ਸਚੁ (Jugaadh[i] Sach[u])? Kavi Ji has explained the meaning and the reader is saved from this doubt. ਆਦਿ ਸਚੁ (Aadh[i] Sach[u]) is not within the 3 tenses, as it is before all 3 and describes the Form of Truth/Vaheguru. Following this is the inclusion of 3 tenses. The first line is from the past: ਜੁਗਾਦਿ ਸਚੁ (Jugaadh[i] Sach[u]), the second line is about the time after the process of creation of the world: ਹੈ ਭੀ ਸਚੁ (Hai Bhee Sach[u])... Even despite this, the Truth stays consistent throughout including our life stages: childhood, adulthood, old age, then death. The lines that follow are about future tense & beyond the existence of time/space.
