This passage is sung before the final prayers of any devotional Sikh service as a prayer of supplication and humility.
It comes from Sukhmani Sahib in the "Siri Guru Granth Sahib", the sacred scriptures of the Sikhs. It was composed by the 5th Guru, Guru Arjan Dev Ji and is a very soothing prayer to support connection with the great doer of all things and surrender to the care and protection of the Divine.

You can view the Gurkmukhi Script and Translation of this Shabad here:


Tu Thaakur Tum Peh Ardās ||

You are our Master; to you, I offer this humble prayer.

Jio Pind Sabh Tayree Raas ||

This body and soul are all your belonging.

Thum Maata Pithaa Ham Baarik Thaerae ||

You are our mother and father; and we are your children.

Tumaree Kirpaa Meh Sukh Ghanayrey || 

In your grace, we experience ultimate peace!

Koe Na Jaanay Tumraa Unt ||

No-one knows your infinite vastness.

Oochay Tey Oochaa Bhagavant ||

O highest of the high, most generous God,

Sagal Samagree Tumaray Soothr Dhaaree || 

The whole creation is strung on your thread.

Tum Tey Hoe So Aageyakaaree ||

That which has come from you is in your will.

Tumaree Gath Mith Tum Hee Jaanee || 

You alone know your existence and vastness.

Nanak Daas Sadhaa Kurbaanee ||
Nanak, Your slave, is forever surrendering to you. ||

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.
