Mantra: Japji Pauri 37 also known as Karam Khand Kee Banee Jor
karam khand kee banee jor.
tithai hor na ko-ee hor.
tithai joDh mahaabal soor.
tin meh raam rahi-aa bharpoor.
tithai seeto seetaa mahimaa maahi.
taa kay roop na kathnay jaahi.
naa ohi mareh na thaagay jaahi.
jin kai raam vasai man maahi.
tithai bhagat vaseh kay lo-a.
karahi anand sachaa man so-ay.
sach khand vasai nirankaar.
kar kar vaykhai nadar nihaal.
tithai khand mandal varbhand.
jay ko kathai ta ant na ant.
tithai lo-a lo-a aakaar.
jiv jiv hukam tivai tiv kaar.
vaykhai vigsai kar veechaar.
naanak kathnaa karrhaa saar. ||37||
In the realm of karma, the Word is Power.
No one else dwells there,
except the warriors of great power, the spiritual heroes.
They are totally fulfilled, imbued with the Creator’s essence.
Myriads of Sitas are there, cool and calm in their majestic glory.
Their beauty cannot be described.
Neither death nor deception comes to those,
within whose minds the Creator abides.
The devotees of many worlds dwell there.
They celebrate; their minds are imbued with the True One.
In the realm of Truth, the Formless One abides.
Having created the creation, the Creator watches over it.
With one glance of grace, the One bestows happiness.
There are planets, solar systems and galaxies.
If one speaks of them, there is no limit, no end.
There are worlds upon worlds of Creation.
As the Creator commands, so they exist.
The Creator watches over all, and contemplating the creation, rejoices.
O Nanak, to describe this is as hard as steel! ||37||
The Thirty-Seventh Pauri cuts the karma. It eliminates the impact of all bad karmas.
