Chant and English Translation: YouTube: Jap Ji of Guru Nanak
Click to Watch Video Clip, Jap Ji:
The Creator of all is One: Ek Ong Kaar
Truth is His Name: Sat Naam
He is the Doer of everything,
He is Fearless, without anger,
He is Undying, Unborn and Self-illumined.
This is revealed by the True Guru's Grace
He was True in the beginning,
He was True through all the ages,
He is True even now,
O Nanak, He shall ever be True.
-- Guru Nanak, the Jap Ji or Morning Prayer
found in, "Peace Lagoon," an
anthology of the Sikh scriptures,
published by G.T. International
Sidh Gosht (Guru Nanak's Conversation with the Siddhas)
From, Peace Lagoon -- Sacred Songs of the Sikhs,
Said Guru Nanak:
The nature of those who have known this
rapture is as the One who created them:
They suffer no birth or death, nor do they come and go.
Through the Guru's grace,
their minds receive instruction and the Imperishable Lord is obtained.
One should close the nine gates,
and arriving at the tenth [Third Eye Center], find fulfillment.
Then will the mind resound with the Eternal Music of bliss.
Then one knows the Presence of the Lord, and he merges in Him.
The True One fills every heart.
He to whom the Word becomes manifest,
the True Lord is revealed unto him.
In the instant of meeting Him, one finds eternal bliss;
And sleeping no more, one is always awake to the Lord.
Then one lives in the Infinity of God through silent contemplation.
And speaking His Name, one is liberated and by his instruction liberates others.
Those who act on the Guru's instructions
are blessed with the True Name.
Having dispelled all selfishness,
they have been granted union with God and are never alone.
