Mantra: Saalaahee Saalaa-eh

Complete Mantra:
Saalaahee Saala-eh
Aytee surat na paaeeaa
Nadeeaa ataai vaah
Paveh samund na jaaneeah
Samund saah sultaan
Girhaa saytee maal dhan
Keeree tul na hovanee
Jay tis manaho na veesareh

The praisers praise the lord,
But they do not obtain the intuitive understanding.
They are like the streams and rivers,
Flowing into the Ocean, they do not know it's vastness.
Eveen kings and emperors, with mountains of property,
And oceans of wealth;
These are not even equal to an ant,
Who does not forget god.
