Sat Naam

In the tradition of Kundalini Yoga, there is a nice bani called So Purkh or Sopurkh. So Purkh was given by Guru Ram Das, the 4th guru of the Sikhs, to women as a way of helping them raise the vibration of the men in their lives.
Therefore, I had recited it for 1001 days (11 times per day).

In my experience, this Bani is more connected with the polarity inside of us than the polarity of our outside relationship.

In other words, it reconnets us with the power of our personal relationship with our female nature, giving back the respect we often might loose during the journey to our destiny.

What man has to do with this process?
Maybe it is the pretext to start thinking about who I am, what I want, where I have to go  – and ultimately, this will have an effect on the partner in the relationship.

As women, we are not really prepared to think of ourselves directly. Sopurkh is a powerful tool to avoid this impasse. Doesn’t matter for who we decide to recite it. The result is for us.

In any case, if you want to try, here it is:

Raag aasaa mehela chauthaa So Purkh
I know that I am one with God.

Ik ong kar sat gur parsaad
This is my True Guru’s gift.

So purkh niranjan har purakh niranjan har agmaa agam apaaraa.
The Primal One is perfectly pure. The Primal God is perfect. He is within all, beyond all.

Sabh dhi-aavaheh sabh dhi-aavaheh tudh jee har sachay sirjanhaaraa.
Everyone meditates. All souls meditate on You, O True Creator.

Sabh jee-a tumaaray jee too(n) jee-aa kaa daataaraa.
All souls are one with You. All souls come from You.

Har dhi-aavahu santahu je sabh dookh visaaranhaaraa.
O Saints, meditate on God and all pains will fly away.

Har aapay thaakur har aapay sayvak jee ki-aa naanak jant vichaaraa.
God himself is the Master. God, Himself is the Servant. O Nanak, everyone is empty-handed before Him.

Too(n) ghat ghat antar sarab nirantar jee har ayko purakh samaanaa.
You are in each beat of my heart, and in all hearts. O Lord, you are the One in everyone.

Ik daatay ik bhaykhaaree jee sabh tayray choj vidaanaa.
Some are givers and some are takers. This all Your play.

You are the God of all; endless and Infinite. I have no words to describe your virtues.

Jo sayveh jo sayveh tudh jee jan naanak tin kurbaanaa.
O Lord, Nanak is a sacrifice unto those who serve and serve You forever.

For You, just for You O Lord, so many poojas are performed and so many endlessly chant and discipline themselves.

Tayray anayk tayray anayk parheh baho simrit saasat jee kar kiri-aa khat karam karantaa.
For You, just for You O Lord, so many read the Smritis and Shastras. They do kriyas and ceremonies.

Say bhagat say bhagat bhalay jan naanak jee jo bhaaveh mayray har bhagvantaa.
Those lovers, those lovers are sublime, O servant Nanak, who are pleasing to God.

Too(n) aad purakh aprampar kartaa je tudh jayvad avar na ko-ee.
You are the Primal One, the most awesome Creator of everything. There is none as great as You.

Too(n) jug jug ayko sadaa sadaa too(n) ayko jee too(n) nihachal kartaa so-ee.
Throughout time and beyond time, You are the One, constant and true Creator.

Tudh aapay bhaavai so-ee vartai jee too(n) aapay karahi so ho-ee.
You do everything, and everything happens according to Your Will.

Tudh aapay srist sabhu upaa-ee jee tudh aapay siraj sabh go-ee.
You create the whole universe. You destroy it and create it again.

Jan naanak gun gaavai kartay kay jee jo sabhsai kaa jaano-ee.
Servant Nanak sings the praises of his beloved Lord forever and ever. He is the Knower within all souls.

So Purkh is a part of Rehiraas, the evening prayer of the Sikhs.

“Woman is the molder of time, the molder of space and of man: the man of tomorrow, the child; the man of today, the husband, and the men of yesterday, the ancestors. The entire society in theory and in reality is based on the spirit of the woman.” – Yogi Bhajan

Yogi Bhajan said if a woman recites this bani 11 times a day for any man, it has the power to make him a saint and dissolve any negativity between them.

Good meditation!
