Kabir Saheb provided him true spiritual knowledge. Satpurush Kabir Saheb showed Nanak Ji Sachhkhand and narrated to him the whole account as to how did He create the entire nature with his word power in six days and after that he sat on the throne on the seventh day. 

In the same context of providing Tatvagyan guru of Nanak Dev Ji ie. Kabir Saheb Ji (traits being explained in Rag Maru Mehla 1, Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji) explained to Shri Nanak Ji how was the creation of Akshar Purush done by one of His sons named Achint (who was also created by Him) and later the owner of twenty-one universes ie. Satan Brahm-Kaal was created by Him out of an egg and what all mischief did Jyot Swaroopi Niranjan-Kaal did in the eternal world Satlok which made Akaal Purush/Param Akshar Brahm expel him from the divine land along with Goddess Durga and we all souls who are trapped at present in his web on this earth and are suffering day and night.

A Complete Guru's Trait in Raag Maru (Ansh) Mehla 1 of the SGGS

The traits of the complete guru are being described in this sacred speech of Nanak Ji mentioned in pious Sri Guru Granth Sahib on Page no.1037.

ਸੁੰਨਹੁ ਬ੍ਰਹਮਾ ਬਿਸਨੁ ਮਹੇਸੁ ਉਪਾਏ ॥ ਸੁੰਨੇ ਵਰਤੇ ਜੁਗ ਸਬਾਏ ॥
ਇਸੁ ਪਦ ਵੀਚਾਰੇ ਸੋ ਜਨੁ ਪੂਰਾ ਤਿਸੁ ਮਿਲੀਐ ਭਰਮੁ ਚੁਕਾਇਦਾ ॥੩॥
ਸਾਮ ਵੇਦੁ ਰਿਗੁ ਜੁਜਰੁ ਅਥਰਬਣੁ ॥ ਬ੍ਰਹਮੇ ਮੁਖਿ ਮਾਇਆ ਹੈ ਤ੍ਰੈ ਗੁਣ ॥
ਤਾ ਕੀ ਕੀਮਤਿ ਕਹਿ ਨ ਸਕੈ ਕੋ ਤਿਉ ਬੋਲੇ ਜਿਉ ਬੋਲਾਇਦਾ ॥੯॥


Sunhu Brahma, Bisnu, Mahesu upaaye, sune varte jug sabaaye 
Isu pad bichaare so janu pura, tis miliye bharmu chukaaida (3)
Saam vedu, rugu- jujaru-atharbanu, brahme much maaiaa hai traigun 
Taa kee keemat kahi na sakae, ko tiu bole jiu bulaaida (9)

सुनहु ब्रह्मा, बिसनु, महेसु उपाए। सुने वरते जुग सबाए।।
इसु पद बिचारे सो जनु पुरा। तिस मिलिए भरमु चुकाइदा।।(3)
साम वेदु, रुगु जुजरु अथरबणु। ब्रहमें मुख माइआ है त्रौगुण।।
ता की कीमत कहि न सकै। को तिउ बोले जिउ बुलाईदा।।(9)

The essence of the aforesaid sacred speech is that the Saint, who will narrate the whole story of nature’s creation and will tell who came out of the two-halved egg and created the Brahm lok in the vacuum space i.e. gave rise to Brahma, Vishnu and Shiv in a secret place, and who is that God who made Brahm (Kaal) narrate the four Vedas (Holy Rigved, Yajurved, Samved and Atharvaved) and that the Purna Parmatma makes every living being say whatever He wishes, if you find a saint who fully tells about all this knowledge, then go to him. He who clears up all your doubts, only he is a Complete Saint i.e. is Tatvadarshi (Enlightened Saint).


Aforesaid, the sacred speech of respected Shri Guru Nanak Dev Ji in Raag Maru, Mehla 1 of the Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji describes the traits of a complete guru and proves that God Kabir Saheb created the entire universe with his word power. He created Brahm-Kaal and then further the creation of Tridev was done by Kaal and Goddess Durga. God who is the creator is in human form and has descended yet again on earth and is playing the divine spectacle in the cover of great enlightened Sant Rampal Ji Maharaj. Come take refuge and become worthy for the attainment of salvation and reach the same Sachhkhand where Guru Nanak Ji resides now and is relishing all comforts.
