Mantra: Japji Pauri 6 also known as Tirath Naavaa
tirath naavaa jay tis bhaavaa vin bhaanay ke naa-ay karee.
jaytee sirath upaa-ee vaykhaa vin karmaa ke milai la-ee.
mat vich ratan javaahar maanik jay ik gur kee sikh sunee.
guraa ik dahi bujhaa-ee.
sabhnaa jee-aa kaa ik daataa so mai visar na jaa-ee. ||6||
If I am pleasing to the One, then that is my pilgrimage and cleansing bath. Without pleasing the divine, what good are ritual cleansings? I gaze upon all the created beings: without the karma of good actions, what are they given to receive? Within the mind are gems, jewels, and rubies, if you listen to the Guru’s Teachings, even once. The Guru has given me this one understanding: there is only the One, the Giver of all souls. May I never forget. ||6||
The Sixth Pauri dispels limitation. Recite it when you feel limited, cornered, trapped, or coerced. When you suffer from greed, madness for power, overbearing expansion and the need to control or when you become trapped in your territoriality.
