This is the prayer that comes at the end of Japji Sahib by guru Nanak.
I've always loved it as it's a short poem that contains so much.
It connects me with the elements of the Universe (wind, water and earth) and places me in the hands of the Divine Mother and Father, as a child.
It reminds me of the liberation, peace and joy that comes from meditating on the Creator and Creation and harmonizing myself with it's vastness.

A special thank you to Nora Wright who played the beautiful harp on this track back in 2015. We recorded it in her family's eco-village in Vera Cruz, México. She has been such a sister and joy to play music with.

You can read the Gurmuki here:


Pavan guru paanee pitaa
Maataa dharat mahat
Divas raat du-i daa-ee dayaa
Khaylai sakal jagat

Wind is the teacher, Water is the father,
and Earth is the great mother.
Day and night are the two kind nurturers,
and (the world) plays under them..

Changi-aaiaa Buri-aaiaa
Vaachayi dharam hadoor
Karmee aapo aapanee kay neday kay door

The record of good and bad deeds is read out
In presence of the Lord of Dharma.
According to their own deeds, some draw closer, some are driven away.

Jinee naam dhiaaiyaa
Gey masakat ghaal
Nanak tay mukh ujalay
Kaytee chhootee naal

Those who have meditated on the Name of the Lord,
And departed after having worked by the sweat of their brow,
O Nanak, their faces are radiant (when in God's court)
And many others are saved along with them.

Bachan Mexico

The sound of Bachan Kaur’s voice can make you forget what you’re doing and remember who you are.

Mysticism infuses her sound with kaleidoscopic luminescence.
Sparse dreamy electronica, organic earthy acoustics, soul stirring poetics, and the occasional boom and clack.

Mother earth and the human heart are the bread and butter of this artist’s intention and you can taste it in every song.
