Japji Sahib – Line By Line Translation

An Important thing to note is that no mention of gender for God (The Universe, creator) is within the text. However as a human reference the words “he,his” are used in translation to reference God as we humans use this method to explain things in some context. The Mool mantra describes the all mighty quite literally as follows with No gender reference:

Ek Ongkar (One God), Sat Naam (True name), Karta Purkh (is the creator), Nir Bhau (is without fear), Nir Vair (is without hate), Akaal Moorat (is immortal, without form), Ajooni (s beyond birth and death), Saibhang (is self-illuminated), Gur Parsaad (is realised by the kindness of the true Guru.)

This is important to keep in mind as you watch the video. So you do not put a fe/male perspective because of the words used in the translation. Feel free to replace the words God/he/his/ with whatever you like eg universe, almighty, creator, god etc. So as you listen really connect form a place of love.


This prayer was composed by Guru Nanak ji sometime between 1500-1507. It is recorded at the start of the Dhan Dhan Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji. It explains how the barriers of deceit and falsehood can be broken in life and how to become one with God. To relate and connect with your soul. Recite in the early morning or when your being is endangered, when the radiance of your soul is weak, when your soul feels sad. All wisdom of the Siri Guru Granth Sahib is contained in this Bani. Related to ether element; it is read to attain Brahm Gian (Knowledge of God).

    Lets spread this to all by going viral , I would suggest only the Mool Mantar because that is the truth in it’s purist form. In the Star Wars movies the same philosophy is used.
