Art. IV.—Translation of the Japji

M. Macauliffe
1900 Journal of the Royal Asiatic Society of Great Britain & Ireland  
The Japji is the prayer which must be repeated every morning by all true Sikhs. It was composed by Baba Nanak in advanced years, and gives a brief summary of his idea of God, religion, ethics, and cosmogony. His views on these subjects are found much further expanded in his other compositions incorporated in the Ad Granth. The Sikhs regard the Japji as the key to the teaching of the early Gurus.
