How to Do It: Repeat eleven times, this sacred praise of Divine Creator, in the Gurmukhi language (or English translation to the right if preferred or if new to Gurmukhi)
Why Do It: This comes from an evening prayer of the Sikhs called Rehiras. This particular section of that prayer can be recited with an intention of prayer for the men in your life, such as a partner or spouse, father, son, brother, friend, etc. The virtues of God mentioned in this prayer are called out to the soul of the man in your prayer to remind them of the same virtues within them. A woman's prayer in this way is effective and a kind gift. And through this intention of prayer and love, the woman's own personality and projection is uplifted.
Inspirational Quote -
"Man seeks inspiration, recognition and confirmation of his personality in a polarity opposite him which is a woman. Other things that he seeks are expansion on a physical level, on a spiritual level and on a mental level. On a physical level it is the service we do for each other; on a mental level it is the inspiration that we give to each other, on the spiritual level it is the trust that we have in each other. If these three things are present, we develop confidence in each other; two people can then experience love." ~ Siri Singh Sahib
