Japji Sahib - The 24th Pauri - Mantra for Family Karma

Codes within our cells are written by our family's history and determine more than what we look like and to what diseases we are prone. Even when we are vastly different that the rest of our family, certain tendencies toward discontent or misfortune can be present in our unconscious and subconscious from childhood. This holiday season, if you are surrounded by family, there is a mantra that you can keep playing in your Ipod, or singing to yourself in sadhana. This mantra breaks family karma. It is said to shatter misfortune with the power of a thunderbolt and affect generations. It is a powerful mantra of change and transformation for you and your whole family.
