Japji Sahib - The 38th PaurI - Mantra for Destiny

Fate is being stuck in a pattern of karma.  Destiny goes beyond any one life or moment of life.  It deals in the realm of the higher self and your true nature.  Destiny is you living as a radiant point of light.  Our radiance is our destiny.  The light is our sat nam (true vibration or true name). This page about the 38th Pauri will tell you how to get beyond yourself and how many times to chant this one pauri.
