Guru Nanak gave a meditation to recite the 33rd Pauree (verse) of Japji Sahib (incredible prayer)
25 times a day, and he said that had the power to turn the worst fate, the worst nothingness, into absolute everything!

I've been practicing this and it's been really healing. Especially around anger.  I realized that the 33rd Pauree is about acknowledging that we have absolutely no power whatsoever--that everything is in the hands of the Divine--and that no one is higher or lower than another person.


So I thought you might want to share the technology of the 33rd Pauree with your readers as one tool to help transform those feeling of powerlessness. It's definitely been helping me.
The power to speak
Or keep silent--
I don't have that power.
I don't have the power
To beg or to give.
When I live,
When I die--
Is far beyond my power.
I have no power
To rule as a King
With wealth,
Or though the force
Of my own mental manipulations.
I have no power
To attach myself to God through meditation,
Or to attain wisdom,
Or to reflect on what I see.
I have no power
To know the way
To liberate myself From the world.
Whose Hand
Holds this power?
The One
Who does and sees all.
Nanak,
No one is high
And no one is low.

AAKHAN JOR CHUPAI NE JOR
JOR NA MANGAN DAYN NA JOR
 
JOR NA JEEVAN MARAN NEH JOR
JOR NA RAAJ MAAL MAN SOR
 
JOR NA SURTEE GI-AAN VEECHAAR
JOR NA JUGATEE CHHUTAI SANSAAR
 
JIS HAT'H JOR KAR VAYKHAI SO-I
NAANAK UTAM NEECH NA KO-I
