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……..


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.
