  • Translation:

    If your life could be extended throughout the four ages,

    Or even ten times longer,

    If you were known across the nine continents,

    And followed by everyone,

    With a good name and reputation,

    Fame and praise throughout the world,

    Still, if god does not bless youwith his glance of grace, then who cares?

    What is the use?

    Among worms, you shall be looked down upon as a worm,

    And the contemptible sinners shall hold you in contempt.

    O Nanak, God bestows worth upon the unworthy,

    And virtue upon the virtuous.

    No one can even imagine anyone

    Who bestows virtue upon him.

    When you suffer from greed, madness for power, overbearing expansion and the need to control, when you become trapped in your territoriality, the seventh pauree will heal you.

    Guru Nanak wrote the long, sacred poem of Japji Sahib in verses.  Each verse has its own unique beauty and power.  Over the centuries, yogis have focused on individual pauris of Japji Sahib, singing or reciting them individually, like an affirmation or mantra.
