Yogi Bhajan taught that the 21st pauri of Japji "will maintain your status, grace, and position".
tirath tap da-i-aa dat daan
jay ko paavai til kaa maan
By going to church, by acting good,
By giving gifts, by sharing food,
Just a small bit of honor is won.
suni-aa mani-aa man keetaa bhaa-o
antargat tirath mal naa-o
Listen …, agree…, and let love fill your mind.
Wash away all dirt of the inner kind.
sabh gun tayray mai naahee ko-ay
vin gun keetay bhagat na ho-ay
All virtues are Thine. I have none.
Without inner virtue there's no real devotion.
su-asat aath banee barmaa-o
sat suhaan sadaa man chaa-o
Hail to the primal Word! Creator!
Beautiful Truth! Happy mind!
kavan so vaylaa vakhat kavan
kavan thit kavan vaar
What is the hour, what is the time?
What is the day, the month, the season
kavan se rutee maahu kavan jit ho-aa aakaar
In which this whole cosmos appeared?
vayl na paa-ee-aa pandtee
je hovai laykh puraan
If the wise men knew,
It would be written in the scriptures.
vakhat na paa-i-o kaadee-aa
je likhan laykh kuraan
If the teachers knew,
It would be written in their books.
thit vaar naa jogee jaanai rut maahu naa ko-ee
Even the yogis have puzzled looks.
jaa kartaa sirthee ka-o saajay aapay jaanai so-ee
As the Creator creates, He understands when…
kiv kar aakhaa kiv saalaahee
ki-o varnee kiv jaanaa
How can I speak? How can I praise?
How can I imagine? How can I know?
naanak aakhan sabh ko aakhai
ik doo ik si-aanaa
O Nanak! Everyone talks, and talks, and talks,
Each more clever than the last.
vadaa saahib vadee naa-ee
keetaa jaa kaa hovai
God is great! His hand is True.
There's nothing anyone else can do
naanak jay ko aapou jaanai
agai ga-i-aa na sohai
O Nanak! If you think you can do it all alone
you'll never look bright in your One True Home.
