All are invited to join this recitation practice, in which we will repeat 108 Mūl Mantra and 5 JapuJī Sāhib.
Mūl Mantra is the beginning of JapuJī Sāhib and is the highest mantra – it contains the whole Srī Gurū Granth Sāhib. Repeating it 108 times will connect you with the Creator and make your whole day fruitful.
JapuJī Sāhib is the first passage from Gurū Nānak Dev Jī and describes the Creator and its Creation. Reciting JapuJī Sāhib will clear your karmā release you from the cycles of birth and death. By repeating JapuJī Sāhib 5 times your projects will be complete and your desires will be fulfilled.
The focus of this practice will be on pronunciation and accuracy. Through this slow recitation, we hope to create a loving and patient relationship with the bānī as if we are reading a love letter between you and the Gurū.
After opening with Mūl Mantra, the main focus and time will be spent on recitation of JapuJī Sāhib, slowly and meditatively.
Everyone is welcome to join. Half of what is collected will go towards supporting langars being openly distrubuted at protests and demonstrations for the Black Lives Matter movement.
The Jāp will be at 5:00am Moscow time (4:00am EU, Friday, June 19 7:00pm PST, 10:00pm EST). You are encouraged to join for the whole time, but are welcome to quietly join or leave at any time. It is recommended that you create a meditative space to sit, while reading along, but you can also listen while walking.
PDFs will be provided to participants with the Bānī in Gurmukhī as well as transliteration.
