Mantra: Raatee Rutee
Raatee rutee thitee vaar
Pavan paanee aganee paataal
Tis vich dhartee thaap rakhee dharam saal
Tis vich jee-a jugat kay rang
Tin kay naam anayk anant
Karmee karmee ho-i veechaar
Sachaa aap sachaa darbaar
Tithai sohan panch parvaan
Nadaree karam pavai neeshaan
Kach pakaaee othai paa-i
Naanak gayaa jaapai jaa-i
Days, nights, weeks, and seasons,
Wind, water, fire, and nether regions -
In the midst of these, he established the Earth as a home for Dharma, for righteous living.
Upon it, he placed the various species of beings.
Their names are uncounted and endless.
By their deeds and their actions, they shall be judged.
God himself is true, and true is his court.
There, in perfect grace and ease, sit the self-elect, the self-realized saints.
They receive the mark of grace from the Merciful Lord.
The ripe and the unripe, the good and the bad, shall there be judged.
O Nanak, when you go home, you shall see this.
The thirty-fourth pauree brings stability.
