23rd PAURI – Japji Sahib Pauri 23

23rd PAURI dispels darkness and elevates the self

 

saalaahee saalaahi aytee surat na paa-ee-aa.
The praisers praise Him, but this is not how understanding is obtained!
nadee-aa atai vaah pavahi samund na jaanee-ahi.
The streams and rivers entering the ocean do not know its vastness.
samund saah sultaan girhaa saytee maal Dhan.
Ocean sized kingdoms owners with mountains of material wealth.
keerhee tul na hovnee jay tis manhu na veesrahi. 
Even an ant outweighs them, if the Lord doesn’t dwell in their mind.

 

Namaste!
