AAD POORAN MADH POORAN
Complete Mantra: Aad Pooran Madh Pooran Ant Pooran Paramaysureh

Madh pooran, in the middle, God is completely whole, completely true, all pervading. Ant Pooran, in the end God will be all pervading. Parmaysureh. Why? Because he is parmaysureh. He is the highest of high, highest of the world. This is a lot like Guru Nanak Dev ji's words at the beginning of Japji Sahib. Aad Sach, Jugaad Sach, Hai Bhee Sach. Naanak Hosee Bhee Sach.
