Reciting the 35th pauree gives you the capacity to do your duty and fulfill your responsibility.
In the 34-37th paurees of Japji Sahib, Guru Nanak describes the journey home. It happens in stages, in refinements of consciousness. Guru Nanak uses the term "Khand" in these paurees. Khand often gets translated as "realm." But the Khands are not physical places you visit – like Paris or the Grand Canyon. The Khands are a way of seeing and experiencing the Universe.
The more you develop and refine your consciousness, the more you begin to perceive something that you couldn't perceive before. Finally, at the end, your perception becomes so subtle, you merge back into the Oneness. There, you watch the play of the Universe without taking form again.
