Japji Pauri 25 also known as Bahuta Karam
bahuta karam likhi-aa naa jaa-ay.
vadaa daataa til na tamaa-ay.
kaytay mangahi joDh apaar.
kayti-aa ganat nahee veechaar.
kaytay khap tutahi vaykaar.
kaytay lai lai mukar paahi.
kaytay moorakh khaahee khaahi.
kayti-aa dookh bhookh sad maar.
ayhi bhe daat tayree daataar.
band khalaasee bhaanai ho-ay.
hor aakh na sakai ko-ay.
jay ko khaa-ik aakhan paa-ay.
oh jaanai jaytee-aa muhi khaa-ay.
aapay jaanai aapay day-ay.
aakhahi se bhe kay-ee kay-ay.
jis no bakhsay sifat saalaah.
naanak paatisaahee paatisaahu. ||25||
Divine Blessings are so abundant that there can be no written account of them.
The Great Giver does not hold back anything.
There are so many great, heroic warriors begging at the Door of the Infinite.
So many contemplate and dwell upon the One, that they cannot be counted.
So many waste away to death engaged in corruption.
So many take and take again, and then deny receiving.
So many foolish consumers keep on consuming.
So many endure distress, deprivation and constant abuse.
Even these are Your Gifts, O Great Giver!
Liberation from bondage comes only by Your Will.
No one else has any say in this.
If some fool should presume to say that he does,
he shall learn, and feel the effects of his folly.
The Infinite knows, The Infinite gives.
Few, very few are those who acknowledge this.
One who is blessed to sing the Praises of the Divine,
says Nanak, is the ruler of all. ||25||
The Twenty-Fifth Pauri pre-fulfills all your needs. Prosperity, virtue, estate, and wealth are yours without asking.
