Day 14 of #40DaySADHANA | Mantra for Surrender : Mannai Surat

Mantra for Surrender : Mannai Surat

In this world of illusions, frustrations, competition, competence, goal settings, materialism, we feel stressed because of fears and insecurities. When we feel entrapped in false attractions and glamour of the world like a rat in a rattrap, somebody comes and advises us to surrender. Now what is Surrender?
Surrender is not to give up or give in or to accept things when you feel hopeless or helpless & it is also not going against your Self worth and Self-esteem.
Surrender, in fact, is the higher level of self -esteem where our faith and belief in ourselves, our being as part of the One Universe leads us from knowledge to wisdom; it is the Self realisation that I ,as this body, have nothing which, I can say is mine, which is permanently going to be with me, which I can surrender because everything I have including my body is temporary.So how can I surrender? & What to surrender then?
This mantra, “mannai surat hovai man budh” inspires us to experience that higher level of self – esteem and self belief.

This further explains that a person who has faith ,with his perceptive eye, knows and understands that his self-respect/self esteem is only a part of respect and acceptance of the higher order – the perfect plan of One Creator – as One whole, of which each one of us is an integral part – when we know and realise this, we are no more in the bondage of ego, we are free, we don’t get hurt ; we accept the higher Order of Nature – this acceptance is Surrender, this is freedom too and this is the Eternal joy – So let’s chant & connect with the Higher Order…….

Day 13 of #40DaySADHANA | Mantra for Self Respect : Manne kī gaṯ kahī na jāe.

Welcome to Day 13 of 40 Day SADHANA.

Mantra for Self Respect : Manne kī gaṯ kahī na jāe.

Language – Gurmukhi
12th Pauri of Japji Sahib
Written by Sri Guru Nanak Dev ji

If we know, we are part of that supreme creator and have all the powers of that infinite source of energy and it resides in all of us, we cannot but have highest self-respect. If we see kids, they are always flying in the seventh skies and always feel they are super powers but with the passage of time family, friends, school teachers, peer group and other external influences around put certain impressions and fears into their minds directly or indirectly and they lose their original, real self-respect. As we grow, and while moving in the world around, we start looking at ourselves from others’ eyes – In the search of our self identity in the outside world, we lose our Self-respect because somebody, somewhere, sometime criticised us, laughed at us, made fun of us – the result is low self esteem.
The answer to this low Self-esteem/Self-respect is – Meditation to understand deep within that we are all equal, all one.

This mantra – “mannay kee gat kahee na jaa-ay” inspires us to have faith /belief in ourselves ,for it is only when we know the powers, the virtues with which our Creator has blessed us that we ‘ll regain our lost self – respect, ‘ll start respecting ourselves & then nobody, no external influence can make us feel inferior ; So let’s chant this beautiful mantra, meditate, know & understand ourselves & awaken the powers within……..

MANTRA & MEANING

ਮੰਨੇ ਕੀ ਗਤਿ ਕਹੀ ਨ ਜਾਇ ॥
Manne kī gaṯ kahī na jāe.
The state of the faithful cannot be described.

ਜੇ ਕੋ ਕਹੈ ਪਿਛੈ ਪਛੁਤਾਇ ॥
Je ko kahai picẖẖai pacẖẖuṯāe.
One who tries to describe this shall regret the attempt.

ਕਾਗਦਿ ਕਲਮ ਨ ਲਿਖਣਹਾਰੁ ॥
Kāgaḏ kalam na likẖaṇhār.
No paper, no pen, no scribe

ਮੰਨੇ ਕਾ ਬਹਿ ਕਰਨਿ ਵੀਚਾਰੁ ॥
Manne kā bahi karan vīcẖār.
can record the state of the faithful.

ਐਸਾ ਨਾਮੁ ਨਿਰੰਜਨੁ ਹੋਇ ॥
Aisā nām niranjan hoe.
Such is the Name of the Immaculate Lord.

ਜੇ ਕੋ ਮੰਨਿ ਜਾਣੈ ਮਨਿ ਕੋਇ ॥੧੨॥
Je ko man jāṇai man koe.
Only one who has faith comes to know such a state of mind.

Day 08 of #40DaySADHANA | Mantra to Overcome Greed – Je Jug Chare Arja

Pause, for a moment. close your eyes and take your attention inside. are you running after something – money, power, to get control of something, or may be you are of the perfectionist kind, and you are running just to make things perfect. reality is that all this stems from that void inside, which we think we can fill with money, power, more control, more perfection. and some name it as greed. But what ever way you put it, its very important to understand that no matter what you do, that void you feel inside can not be filled with anything outside, anything external. It can only be filled by something internal, something inside of you. And its you who need to find that gold – your gold, inside you. And this mantra is there to help you. Take time to understand it, and then meditate upon it, Chant it along 40 times atleast.

INSIGHT

Our Outer World is a reflection of our Inner world. We can attain and accumulate a lot of wealth but still feel void inside us. This mantra guides us towards the path to attain that inner abundance, inner wealth and prosperity. Only when we connect to that creator, that source of all the creation and understand that we are all one and connected, and nothing outside is permanent, nothing which is created in time is permanent, we stop that search for prosperity in the outside world and start looking inside us. And how can we start our journey towards this path of inner prosperity. By Meditating during the Amrit Vela( Amrit Vela is referred to early hours in the morning, around 3:30Am to 5AM) . During this time, the meditation is most fruitful.

INSIGHT

In 40 Days of Sadhana through these 38 Pauris and 2 Salokas of Japji, are a journey towards self-realisation. In this – the 2nd Pauri of Japji, the answer to the question asked in the end of 1st Pauri is given i.e. “Kiv sacẖiārā hoīai kiv kūrhai ṯutai pāl”. How can we become truthful and break the wall of falsehood and illusions – Maya ? The brief answer also comes in the last line – “ Hukam rajāī cẖalṇā Nānak likẖiā nāl.” – By surrendering to the will of God.
Now, in the 2nd Pauri, this very thought is explained through various examples. Man in his quest for truth is guided by Guru Nanak who tells him to understand God’s divine will. Everything in this universe exists and acts according to His will. We are all but only puppets in God’s hands. We feel pleasures and pains according to His Hukam/Order. All happenings glories, greatness, blessings fall into His perfect plan. Those who don’t understand this truth keep on wandering aimlessly. Nanak says, “Those who understand this truth come out of the bondage of false ego and impatience and by following a path of complete Surrender, Gratitude and Patience, achieve self realisation.
