The high-quality engraving of this Kara with soft, smooth edges carries the mantra of the last four lines of the Jaap Sahib "Chattr Chakra Vartee ..." (shown here in "Roman" - the engraving is written in Gurmukhi):
Chattr chakkar vartee, chattr chakkar bhugte.
Suyambhav subhang, sarbdaa sarab jugte.
Dukaalang pranaasee, diaalang saroope.
Sadaa ang sange, abhangang bibhoote.
Translation of the Mantra (not part of the engraving):
God is present on all sides and by His Order controls all the world.
God's Light is automatic; He is beautiful and is ever present in all living beings.
God destroys the pains of births and deaths, and is the embodiment of mercy.
God is present with all and His grandeur will never vanish.
History and use of a Kara:
The Kara is originally a bracelet made of iron or steel and was first given by Guru Gobind Singh Ji, the 10th Sikh Master, in 1699 as one of the 5 K's of the Sikhs - a powerful protection and radiant symbol for the one who wears it.
A circle with no beginning and no end, the Kara represents man’s unbreakable relationship with the eternal creator and the Infinity. The steel or iron is a reminder of the strength of the bond which unites us together and ultimately to the Divine.
A Kara is not only a spiritual or religious garment, it is a powerful jewel of radiance, enhancing your personality and presence. In the science of Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan, the Kara is also valued for its energetic-magnetic effects on the Aura – strengthening the male or active energy when worn on the right hand, and the female or more receptive energy when worn on the left hand.
