Japji Sahib - The 13th Pauri - Mantra for Surrender

When we surrender, we give our heads. When we give our heads, we surrender our egos. We still have an ego; but we no longer identify with it. Our egos are tied to time and space—the past, the present and the future.

ਮੰਨੈ ਸੁਰਤਿ ਹੋਵੈ ਮਨਿ ਬੁਧਿ ॥
मंनै सुरति होवै मनि बुधि ॥
mannai surat hovai man budh

ਮੰਨੈ ਸਗਲ ਭਵਣ ਕੀ ਸੁਧਿ ॥
मंनै सगल भवण की सुधि ॥
mannai sagat bhavan kee sudh

When you agree, You tune in become wise. When you agree, You become aware Of all the universes and worlds.

ਮੰਨੈ ਮੁਹਿ ਚੋਟਾ ਨਾ ਖਾਇ ॥
मंनै मुहि चोटा ना खाइ ॥
mannai muhi chotaa naa khaa-ay

ਮੰਨੈ ਜਮ ਕੈ ਸਾਥਿ ਨ ਜਾਇ ॥
मंनै जम कै साथि न जाइ ॥
mannai jam kai saath na jaa-ay

When you agree, You gain dignity and grace. When you agree, Death cannot touch you.

ਐਸਾ ਨਾਮੁ ਨਿਰੰਜਨੁ ਹੋਇ ॥
ऐसा नामु निरंजनु होइ ॥
aisaa naam niranjan ho-ay

ਜੇ ਕੋ ਮੰਨਿ ਜਾਣੈ ਮਨਿ ਕੋਇ ॥੧੩॥
जे को मंनि जाणै मनि कोइ ॥१३॥
jay ko man jaanai man ko-ay

Such is the Nam. It makes you pure. If you agree to agree. Your mind becomes sure.
