Effects of the Recitation of the Pauris of Japji Sahib
("Sochai soch na hova-ee")
The total knowledge of God and esctasy is contained in this Pauri. The rest of Japji Sahib is an explanation of it.
("Asankh naav asankh t’haav")
If you understand this Pauri, you’ll never have trouble understanding anything. Guru Nanak blessed this Pauri in that whosoever reads it and understands it word by word will gain the knowledge of the four Yugas (ages).
If it is written in your life to suffer, and you cannot live to your highest destiny, this Pauri will uplift your life to Infinity. Chant it eleven times a day. This Pauri is also chanted to bring prosperity.
("Aykaa maa-ee jugat vi-aa-ee")
This Pauri is called "mritee bhugatee jugatee shabad" (mritee = death, bhugatee = life to go through it, jugatee = secret technology, shabad = sound current, word). If you read this Pauri forty times a day, death cannot strike you, and karma will not hit you.
("Aakhan jor chupai neh jor")
Whosoever chants this Pauri twenty-five times a day, there is nothing on earth he will not have.
