  • Translation:

    Remembering God, all mistakes are washed away and one's ancestors are redeemed and saved.

    Always chant God's Name, Har, Har. God is inside you, God is infinite.

    O my child, this is your mother's blessing,

    May you may never forget God even for a moment, worshipping forever the Lord of the Universe

    May the True Guru be kind to you, may you love to be with the Saints.

    May your clothing be the protection of God, may your food be the singing of God's praise

    Drink the nectar of God's Name and live long, may meditation on God bring you endless bliss.

    May love be yours and your hopes fulfilled. May you never be worn by worry.

    Let this mind of yours be the bumble bee, and let the Lotus Feet of God be the flower.

    O Servant Nanak, link your mind in this way. Like the sparrow hawk finding a raindrop blossom forth.

    Yogi Bhajan, Siri Singh Sahib ji taught mothers to repeat this prayer for their child's protection and blessing. Some mothers say it daily, and others repeat it 11, 56, or 108 times on their child's birthdays.  This is a blessing from the mother that her child may feel Divine. Yogi Bhajan spoke of it once, with the following lecture to Women's Camp in New Mexico in 1977.

    Jesus asked Mary if Joseph was his father. She told Jesus, " Your father lives in the heavens." This Jesus wanted to know, and knew when he was so little. During the entire life of that individual, the Heavenly Father was his father. Who was Mary? She was a very very divine mother who could create her son to be a Christ, who was pure.

    Yogi Bhajan thus encouraged us to really see the Divine in our children, pray for it, and relate to it, every day.
