Mantra for Respect

(Salok of Japji)

The idea that air is the teacher, the pathway from darkness to light, reminds us to reconnect with our breath which is our only link to the present moment.  But thoughts are inherently reactions. By shifting our awareness to the breath, we linger in the present moment.  This following page tells more about the Salok of Japji.

ਪਵਣੁ ਗੁਰੂ ਪਾਣੀ ਪਿਤਾ ਮਾਤਾ ਧਰਤਿ ਮਹਤੁ ॥
पवणु गुरू पाणी पिता माता धरति महतु ॥

pavan guroo paanee pitaa
maataa dharat mahat

Air is the Guru…Water the Father…
And Earth the Great Mother of all.


ਦਿਵਸੁ ਰਾਤਿ ਦੁਇ ਦਾਈ ਦਾਇਆ ਖੇਲੈ ਸਗਲ ਜਗਤੁ ॥
दिवसु राति दुइ दाई दाइआ खेलै सगल जगतु ॥

divas raat du-ay daa-ee daaa-i-aa
khaylai sagai jagat

In the laps of the two nurses, Night and Day.
The whole world lives in an endless play.


ਚੰਗਿਆਈਆ ਬੁਰਿਆਈਆ ਵਾਚੈ ਧਰਮੁ ਹਦੂਰਿ ॥
चंगिआईआ बुरिआईआ वाचै धरमु हदूरि ॥

chang-aa-ee-aa buri-aa-ee-aa
vaachai dharam hadoor

We must judge the results
of our own actions.


ਕਰਮੀ ਆਪੋ ਆਪਣੀ ਕੇ ਨੇੜੈ ਕੇ ਦੂਰਿ ॥
करमी आपो आपणी के नेड़ै के दूरि ॥

karmee aapo aapnee
kay nayrhai kay door

By our actions we live near or far.


ਜਿਨੀ ਨਾਮੁ ਧਿਆਇਆ ਗਏ ਮਸਕਤਿ ਘਾਲਿ ॥
जिनी नामु धिआइआ गए मसकति घालि ॥

jinee naam dhi-aa-i-aa
gay-ay maskat ghaal

Those who deeply know who they are,
And have worked hard, can rejoice and go Home.


ਨਾਨਕ ਤੇ ਮੁਖ ਉਜਲੇ ਕੇਤੀ ਛੁਟੀ ਨਾਲਿ ॥੧॥
नानक ते मुख उजले केती छुटी नालि ॥१॥

naanak tay mukh ujlay
kaytee chhutee naal

O Nanak! Their faces shine with joy
And they take many others along.

Wahe Guru Ji Ka Khalsa,
Wahe Guru Ji Ki Fateh.

This is a great CD for learning the Banis in Gurmukhi (includes Japji Sahib). The Sikh Youth Federation of North America has done a beautiful job putting together this CD.

The CD is set up so you can listen to one portion of the bani and repeat it to hear it again. This way you are able to hear a section again and again if you want to. The Banis are also recited slower than on other CDs so the pronunciation is very clear.
