In Japji Sahib, Guru Nanak touches the deepest essence of individual consciousness, elevating one to the universal consciousness. Japji is made up of 40 remarkable segments where Guru Nanak not only explains the mysteries of the cosmos, but also gives us spiritual instruction that we can follow to achieve the same experience of higher consciousness that Guru Nanak embodied.
In this book the Mul Mantra and each of the 38 paurees of Japji, plus the Slok, are explained from a spiritual as well as historical perspective, enhanced by the teachings of Siri Singh Sahib Yogi Bhajan. Drawing on the wisdom and spiritual clarity that the Siri Singh Sahib shared, we have included portions of his lectures about the various paurees of Japji, highlighted with kriyas and meditations that amplify the experience of Japji.
Each Pauree chapter is illustrated with beautiful full-color paintings by Sewa Singh and Sewa Kaur*. There is a Pronunciation Guide to help beginners with the correct pronunciation of these sacred words and a glossary to further explain them. It is our sincere prayer that this book will open you up to the miraculous wonder of Japji Sahib.
