Almighty KavirDev the guru of respected Shri Nanak Dev Ji met Nanak Ji on the bank of river Bein while the devout soul was meditating remembering God whom he believed is formless. God Kabir disguised in the form of Jinda Baba told Nanak Ji that God is in human form and resides in Sachkhand which is the immortal abode. Initially, Nanak Dev Ji did not believe Jinda Baba but when Kabir Saheb provided shreds of evidence from holy scriptures Veda, Shrimad Bhagwat Gita; regarding the creation of nature then Nanak Ji gradually developed trust and started listening to Jinda Baba’s speech with great reverence. Kabir Saheb explained to Nanak Dev Ji the entire creation.
Kabir Saheb gave true spiritual knowledge to Nanak Dev Ji that Akaal Purush/Param Akshar Brahm at the inception used to reside all alone in ‘Anami (Anamay) Lok and all the souls were contained in the body of Satpurush/Shabad Swaroopi Ram/Akaal Purush. He is in human form and his body is highly effulgent. Then the Supreme God Kabir Saheb created other lower regions viz: Agam Lok, Alakh Lok, and Satlok. He created sixteen Islands with His word power then made evident sixteen sons. Then the Eternal God Kabir Saheb created Jyot Swaroopi Niranjan-Brahm Kaal with an egg by inserting a soul into it. Similarly, he explained to respected Shri Nanak Dev Ji about the creation of Akshar Purush and his Seven Sankh Brahamands also How did the souls get trapped in the web of Satan Brahm-Kaal? and are suffering in his twenty-one universes with the disease of birth and rebirth. They can only be liberated by the true worship of Kabir Saheb which will be provided by an enlightened saint.
God Kabir Saheb on the request of Nanak Dev Ji to see Sachhkhand and meet Akaal Purush took him to Satlok and kept him there for three days. After that, He released the soul back into the body. The eye-witness Nanak Dev Ji then glorified his Guru Kabir Saheb and mentioned in his sacred speech the creation of the universe as narrated by Jinda Baba-Almighty Kabir. The same has been scripted in pious Sri Guru Granth Sahib in Mehla 1, Raag Bilaavalu (Bilawal). Let us read.

ਆਪੇ ਸਚੁ ਕੀਆ ਕਰ ਜੋੜਿ ॥ ਅੰਡਜ ਫੋੜਿ ਜੋੜਿ ਵਿਛੋੜਿ ॥
ਧਰਤਿ ਅਕਾਸੁ ਕੀਏ ਬੈਸਣ ਕਉ ਥਾਉ ॥ ਰਾਤਿ ਦਿਨੰਤੁ ਕੀਏ ਭਉ ਭਾਉ ॥
ਜਿਨਿ ਕੀਏ ਕਰਿ ਵੇਖਣਹਾਰਾ ॥ ਅਵਰੁ ਨ ਦੂਜਾ ਸਿਰਜਣਹਾਰਾ ॥੩॥
ਤ੍ਰਿਤੀਆ ਬ੍ਰਹਮਾ ਬਿਸਨੁ ਮਹੇਸਾ ॥ ਦੇਵੀ ਦੇਵ ਉਪਾਏ ਵੇਸਾ ॥
ਜੋਤੀ ਜਾਤੀ ਗਣਤ ਨ ਆਵੈ ॥ ਜਿਨਿ ਸਾਜੀ ਸੋ ਕੀਮਤਿ ਪਾਵੈ ॥
ਕੀਮਤਿ ਪਾਇ ਰਹਿਆ ਭਰਪੂਰਿ ॥ ਕਿਸੁ ਨੇੜੈ ਕਿਸੁ ਆਖਾ ਦੂਰਿ ॥੪॥
ਚਉਥਿ ਉਪਾਏ ਚਾਰੇ ਬੇਦਾ ॥ ਖਾਣੀ ਚਾਰੇ ਬਾਣੀ ਭੇਦਾ ॥
ਅਸਟ ਦਸਾ ਖਟੁ ਤੀਨਿ ਉਪਾਏ ॥ ਸੋ ਬੂਝੈ ਜਿਸੁ ਆਪਿ ਬੁਝਾਏ ॥
ਤੀਨਿ ਸਮਾਵੈ ਚਉਥੈ ਵਾਸਾ ॥ ਪ੍ਰਣਵਤਿ ਨਾਨਕ ਹਮ ਤਾ ਕੇ ਦਾਸਾ ॥੫॥
ਪੰਚਮੀ ਪੰਚ ਭੂਤ ਬੇਤਾਲਾ ॥ ਆਪਿ ਅਗੋਚਰੁ ਪੁਰਖੁ ਨਿਰਾਲਾ ॥
ਇਕਿ ਭ੍ਰਮਿ ਭੂਖੇ ਮੋਹ ਪਿਆਸੇ ॥ ਇਕਿ ਰਸੁ ਚਾਖਿ ਸਬਦਿ ਤ੍ਰਿਪਤਾਸੇ ॥
ਇਕਿ ਰੰਗਿ ਰਾਤੇ ਇਕਿ ਮਰਿ ਧੂਰਿ ॥ ਇਕਿ ਦਰਿ ਘਰਿ ਸਾਚੈ ਦੇਖਿ ਹਦੂਰਿ ॥੬॥
ਝੂਠੇ ਕਉ ਨਾਹੀ ਪਤਿ ਨਾਉ ॥ ਕਬਹੁ ਨ ਸੂਚਾ ਕਾਲਾ ਕਾਉ ॥
ਪਿੰਜਰਿ ਪੰਖੀ ਬੰਧਿਆ ਕੋਇ ॥ ਛੇਰੀਂ ਭਰਮੈ ਮੁਕਤਿ ਨ ਹੋਇ ॥
ਤਉ ਛੂਟੈ ਜਾ ਖਸਮੁ ਛਡਾਏ ॥ ਗੁਰਮਤਿ ਮੇਲੇ ਭਗਤਿ ਦ੍ਰਿੜਾਏ ॥੭॥
ਖਸਟੀ ਖਟੁ ਦਰਸਨ ਪ੍ਰਭ ਸਾਜੇ ॥ ਅਨਹਦ ਸਬਦੁ ਨਿਰਾਲਾ ਵਾਜੇ ॥
ਜੇ ਪ੍ਰਭ ਭਾਵੈ ਤਾ ਮਹਲਿ ਬੁਲਾਵੈ ॥ ਸਬਦੇ ਭੇਦੇ ਤਉ ਪਤਿ ਪਾਵੈ ॥
ਕਰਿ ਕਰਿ ਵੇਸ ਖਪਹਿ ਜਲਿ ਜਾਵਹਿ ॥ ਸਾਚੈ ਸਾਚੇ ਸਾਚਿ ਸਮਾਵਹਿ ॥੮॥
ਸਪਤਮੀ ਸਤੁ ਸੰਤੋਖੁ ਸਰੀਰਿ ॥ ਸਾਤ ਸਮੁੰਦ ਭਰੇ ਨਿਰਮਲ ਨੀਰਿ ॥
ਮਜਨੁ ਸੀਲੁ ਸਚੁ ਰਿਦੈ ਵੀਚਾਰਿ ॥ ਗੁਰ ਕੈ ਸਬਦਿ ਪਾਵੈ ਸਭਿ ਪਾਰਿ ॥
ਮਨਿ ਸਾਚਾ ਮੁਖਿ ਸਾਚਉ ਭਾਇ ॥ ਸਚੁ ਨੀਸਾਣੈ ਠਾਕ ਨ ਪਾਇ ॥੯॥
ਅਸਟਮੀ ਅਸਟ ਸਿਧਿ ਬੁਧਿ ਸਾਧੈ ॥ ਸਚੁ ਨਿਹਕੇਵਲੁ ਕਰਮਿ ਅਰਾਧੈ ॥
ਪਉਣ ਪਾਣੀ ਅਗਨੀ ਬਿਸਰਾਉ ॥ ਤਹੀ ਨਿਰੰਜਨੁ ਸਾਚੋ ਨਾਉ ॥
ਤਿਸੁ ਮਹਿ ਮਨੂਆ ਰਹਿਆ ਲਿਵ ਲਾਇ ॥ ਪ੍ਰਣਵਤਿ ਨਾਨਕੁ ਕਾਲੁ ਨ ਖਾਇ ॥੧੦॥
ਨਾਉ ਨਉਮੀ ਨਵੇ ਨਾਥ ਨਵ ਖੰਡਾ ॥ ਘਟਿ ਘਟਿ ਨਾਥੁ ਮਹਾ ਬਲਵੰਡਾ ॥
Aape sachu keeaa kar jodi, andaj fodi jodi vichhod
Dharti aakaash keeye baisan kau thaau, raati dinantu keeye bhau-bhaau
Jin keeye kari vekhanhaara (3)
Tritiaa Brahma-Bisnu-Mahesa, Devi Dev upaaye vesa (4)
Paoon paani agni bisraaoo, taahi Niranjan saacho naaoo
Tisu mahi manuaa rahiaa liv laai, pranvati Nanaku Kaalu na khaai (10)
आपे सचु कीआ कर जोड़ि। अंडज फोड़ि जोडि विछोड़।।
धरती आकाश कीए बैसण कउ थाउ। राति दिनंतु कीए भउ-भाउ।।
जिन कीए करि वेखणहारा।(3)
त्रितीआ ब्रह्मा-बिसनु-महेसा। देवी देव उपाए वेसा।।(4)
पउण पाणी अगनी बिसराउ। ताही निरंजन साचो नाउ।।
तिसु महि मनुआ रहिआ लिव लाई। प्रणवति नानकु कालु न खाई।।(10)
The meaning of the aforesaid speech is that the true God (SatPurush) has Himself created the entire nature with His own hands. He Himself created the egg, broke it, and then Jyoti Niranjan came out of it. That same Purna Parmatma created the five elements, earth, sky, air, water etc. for all the living beings to reside in. He Himself is the witness of the nature created by Him. Nobody else can give the correct information. Then after Niranjan, who came out of the broken egg, the three, Shri Brahma Ji, Shri Vishnu Ji and Shri Shiv Ji, were born. Then, other gods and goddesses and infinite living beings were born. Later, six Shastra (scriptures) and 18 Purans were formed, based on the life histories of other gods and experiences of other rishis (sages). Shri Guru Nanak Dev Ji is saying that Kaal does not eat that living being who solely worships the Supreme God by His true naam (Satnaam) and abides by the rules directed by the Guru ji.
Human birth is highly precious. By reading the aforesaid description of the creation of nature this is evident that the souls are trapped in the web of Brahm-Kaal who can only be liberated by doing true worship of Param Akshar Brahm (KavirDev). Therefore, every breath should be utilized in true worship of Akaal Purush / Satpurush intending to attain emancipation similar to Guru Nanak Dev Ji who chanted the true salvation mantra 'Satnam' as provided by his guru Kabir Saheb. Great Enlightened Sant Rampal Ji Maharaj is ‘Akaal Purush’ who has descended on earth for the welfare of mankind, to liberate souls from the trap of Butcher Brahm-Kaal. Take his refuge. Chant mantras as given by Him because He has the complete course of emancipation. Do true worship and become the permanent resident of 'Sachkhand' the same as Guru Nanak Dev Ji.
