Mantra: Japji Pauri 19 also known as Asankh Naav
asankh naav asankh thaav.
agamm agamm asankh lo-a.
asankh kehahi sir bhaar ho-ay.
akhree naam akhree saalaah.
akhree gi-aan geet gun gaah.
akhree likhan bolan baan.
akhraa sir sanjog vakhaan.
jin ayhi likhay tis sir naahi.
jiv furmaa-ay tiv tiv paahi.
jaytaa keetaa taytaa naa-o.
vin naavai naahee ko thaa-o.
kudrat kavan kahaa veechaar.
vaari-aa na jaavaa ayk vaar.
jo tudh bhaavai saa-ee bhalee kaar.
too sadaa salaamat nirankaar. ||19||
Countless are your names, countless are your places.
Inaccessible, unapproachable, countless celestial realms.
Even to call them countless is to carry the weight on your head.
From the Word comes the name; from the Word comes your praise.
From the Word comes spiritual wisdom, singing the songs of your glory.
From the Word come the written and spoken words and hymns.
From the Word comes destiny, written on one’s forehead.
But the One who wrote these Words of Destiny – no words are written on the forehead of the One.
As the True Spirit decides so do we receive.
The created universe is the manifestation of Your Name.
Without Your Name, there is no place at all.
How can I describe your feminine creative power?
I cannot even once be a sacrifice to You.
Whatever pleases You is the only good done,
You, Eternal and Formless One. ||19||
The Nineteenth Pauri brings universal knowledge, inspiration, and revelation.
