Japji Sahib – 13th Pauree

13th Pauree

The Thirteenth Pauree gives you the occult knowledge of infinity.

It brings deep intuition.



Excerpted from the book Guru Nanak’s Call of the Soul: Japji Sahib:

In the 13th pauree, Guru Nanak acknowledges that so great is the state of those who surrender their ego that they gain the intuitive intelligence and innate understanding of all things through the awakened Buddhi Mind (Neutral Mind). For the one who obeys, knowledge of all the known and unknown worlds is fully realized. Guru Nanak tells us that those who are spiritually awakened will never be slapped in the face – they will not suffer that indignity nor feel the pain of shame (…) He is not saying there will not be challenges in life or that the body will never die. Rather, he tells us that all concerns will be taken care of and when the time comes to shed this mortal coil, the transition will not be frightening.

“(…) So long as you do not know the Shabad, you will never have the Surat. You will not will have a penetrating projection, elementary projective psyche in the psychosomatics that can penetrate through all elements and give you the reality of your own self. There is no way and that you have to understand. Then when you have the Shabad you will have the surat, you will have the awareness, you will have the awakening, you will have the knowledge. It is a knowledge of all knowledges. You will be alive and awaken to everything. Whatever comes your way you will know it and that is surat. Then you will have a body of existence and radiance which will penetrate and that is when things will come to you, you don’t have go to things.

~Siri Singh Sahib, Yogi Bhajan – April 11, 1993



13th Pauree


Mannai surat hovai man budh.

Mannai sagal bhavann kee sudh.

Mannai mu-eh chotta naa khaa-ei.

Mannai jam kai saath na jaa-ei.

Aisaa naam niranjan ho-ei.

Jay ko maan jaannai man ko-ei ]13]


The faithful have intuitive awareness and intelligence.

The faithful know about all worlds and realms.

The faithful shall never be struck across the face.

The faithful do not have to go with the Messenger of Death.

Such is the Name of the Immaculate True One.

Only one who has faith comes to know such a state of mind.
