Excerpted from the book Guru Nanak’s Call of the Soul: Japji Sahib:
“You ask for nothing and you will get everything. That’s the law. [The 33rd] pauree means ask for nothing and you will get everything. Whosoever will chant this pauree twenty-five times a day, there is nothing on the earth he or she will not have. This pauree Guru Nanak sang as a Sumpuran Kriya, a perfect, perfect seal.”– Siri Singh Sahib, Yogi Bhajan, July 2, 1982
Aakhann jor chupai neh jor.
Jor na mangann daynn na jor.
Jor na jeevann marann neh jor.
Jor na raaj maal man sor.
Jor na surtee gi-aan veechaar.
Jor na jugatee chhuttai sansaar.
Jis hath jor kar vaykhai so-ei.
Naanak utam neech na ko-ei. II 33 II
No power to speak,
no power to keep silent.
No power to beg,
no power to give.
No power to live,
no power to die.
No power to rule,
with wealth and occult mental powers.
No power to gain
spiritual wisdom and meditation.
No power to find the way to escape from the world.
He alone has the power in His Hands.
He watches over all.
O Nanak, no one is high or low.
