Mantra for Elevation:
(The 23rd Pauri of Japji)

This is where the 23rd pauri of Japji can help.  Yogi Bhajan said that reciting it 11 times a day as a mantra for elevation will  "dispel darkness and elevate the self".

ਸਾਲਾਹੀ ਸਾਲਾਹਿ ਏਤੀ ਸੁਰਤਿ ਨ ਪਾਈਆ ॥
सालाही सालाहि एती सुरति न पाईआ ॥

saalaahee saalaahi
aytee surat na paa-ee-aa

The praisers sing God's praises,
But they have no power to hear.

The rivers and streams flow into the ocean
And lose themselves in its vastness.

ਨਦੀਆ ਅਤੈ ਵਾਹ ਪਵਹਿ ਸਮੁੰਦਿ ਨ ਜਾਣੀਅਹਿ ॥
नदीआ अतै वाह पवहि समुंदि न जाणीअहि ॥

nadee-aa atai vaah
pavahi samund na jaanee-ahi

Even kings, who own oceans,
And mountains and treasure,
Are not equal to an ant,
Which forgets not its Maker.

ਸਮੁੰਦ ਸਾਹ ਸੁਲਤਾਨ ਗਿਰਹਾ ਸੇਤੀ ਮਾਲੁ ਧਨੁ ॥
समुंद साह सुलतान गिरहा सेती मालु धनु ॥

samun saah sultaan
girhaa saytee maal dhan

Even kings and emperors, with mountains of
property and oceans of wealth -

ਕੀੜੀ ਤੁਲਿ ਨ ਹੋਵਨੀ ਜੇ ਤਿਸੁ ਮਨਹੁ ਨ ਵੀਸਰਹਿ ॥੨੩॥
कीड़ी तुलि न होवनी जे तिसु मनहु न वीसरहि ॥२३॥

keerhee tul na hovnee
jay tis manhu na veesrahi

these are not even equal to an ant,
who does not forget God.
