From Yogi Bhajan's Lecture on Self Reverence 02/26/1996:

"In this Slok, he totally completes the human anatomy, excellence, process, projection in the most clear words which one can understand. He says it with absolute clarity, sparing nothing.
Guru Nanak salutes God as a yogi, by using the yogi’s salute: Aadays. Aadays means, “I salute Thou.”

Aadays tisai aadays: I salute Thou. I salute Thou, again and again.

Aad: You are the beginning.
Aad. He describes all dimension of limitlessness.

-Guru Nanak, Siri Guru Granth Sahib, page 7 (from 30th pauree of Japji Sahib)

God is primal and pure with unknown beginning, Who cannot be destroyed, and Who remains the same in all Ages. Through all time You will remain."  - Yogi Bhajan
