14. Ognis Tol No Chanto

(Seeking mercy in passing through 19 checkpoints)

Pir Sadardin in his Granth "Vis Tol" explains about the path that the soul has to take, after leaving the body, to arrive at its final destination. This path has 19 checkpoint where the soul could be detained or its further progress slowed down depending on its deeds in the past life. This Chanta is taken to ease this journey. It also reminds us that once we die it is not the end, rather the beginning of a long journey.
