The Third Pauree transforms insufficiency into sufficiency, turns depression into elevation
and transforms low self-esteem into complete self-confidence.
Excerpted from the book Guru Nanak’s Call of the Soul: Japji Sahib:
“Daydaa day lainday thak paa-eh. Jugga jugantar khaahee khaa-eh. Those who get, they get tired. The Giver never gets tired. Giving is a state of consciousness. Giving is the quality of the mind. Giving is the personality of God. Giving cannot be limited. When you limit the giving then you are corrupt. Giving is endless.”Siri Singh Sahib – December 15, 1980

Gaavai ko taann hovai kisai taann.
Gaavai ko daat jaannai neeshaann.
Gaavai ko gunn vaddiaa-eeaa chaar.
Gaavai ko vidiaa vikham veechaar.
Gaavai ko saaj karay tann khayh.
Gaavai ko jee-a lai fir dayh.
Gaavai ko jaapai disai door.
Gaavai ko vaykhay haadaraa hadoor.
Kathanaa kathee na avai tott.
Kath kath kathee kottee kott kott.
Daydaa day lainday thak paa-eh.
Jugaa jugantar khaahee khaa-eh.
Hukamee hukam chalaa-ay raahu.

Some sing of the divine power – who has that power?
Some sing of divine gifts, and know the divine sign and insignia.
Some sing of the glorious virtues and beauty of the One.
Some sing of knowledge obtained of the One, through difficult philosophical studies.
Some sing that the Divine One fashions the body, and then again reduces it to dust.
Some sing that the Divine One takes life away, and then again restores it.
Some sing that the Divine One seems so very far away.
Some sing that the Divine One watches over us, face to face, ever-present.
There is no shortage of those who preach and teach.
Millions upon millions offer millions of sermons and stories.
The Great Giver keeps on giving, while those who receive grow weary of receiving.
Throughout the ages, consumers consume.
The Commanding Oneness by divine Command, leads us to walk on the path.
O Nanak, the Divine blossoms forth, carefree and untroubled.
