The beautiful Mul Mantra
This mantra is really one of our favorite mantras! My whole family including all students and retreat visitors seem love this happy and uplifting mantra!
This mantra just gives you such an intense and happy feeling.
This mantra gives an experience of the depth and consciousness of your soul. It eradicates deep, longstanding pain and sorrow. It expands creativity and projects us into action in line with our destiny.
This powerful mantra was given to us by Guru Nanak, the first Guru of the Sikhs who walked this earth in the fifteenth century.
It is a mantra that gives you the compass so that you may find your true self. This true self sits within the opening of your heart.
The text of this mantra is:
Ek Ong Kar
Gur Prasad Jap!
Nanak Hosee Bhee Sach
Translation (note with God nothing religious is meant. It means in this sense that everyone is divine, everyone is god).
Ek ong kaar….
God is One, I am One with all beings
Truth is God’s Name… The vibration of God’s Name is what created all beings…. that vibration is within me…. therefore in my core I am true.
God is the Doer…. God does all things… God works through me…. God works through everyone in my life.
God is fearless… I am fearless.
God has no revenge…. I exist in my heart… I stay present… I don’t hold on to the past…. I live in this moment in full compassion and acceptance of what is.
God exists in the undying form… God is in the purity of our efforts to live in a spiritual way, and these efforts never die… these efforts live on forever.
God is unborn…. God does not relate to birth and death…. God is beyond the cycles of life…. God is infinite… I am infinite
God is self illumined… I am self illumined. Within me I have the power to find light, to find love, to find joy. I don’t need anyone or anything for this.
It is by Guru’s Grace…. it is the Grace of the teachings of the Divine One…. the Guru…. Guru Nanak, Jesus, Mohammed, the Masters of all traditions that give us Grace.
True in the Beginning
True throughout the ages
True here and now
Nanak Hosee Bhee Sach…
Oh Nanak, forever and always true. Spirit, Truth, Love, and Light…. these are the things that are true, that have always been true.
This is the Mul Mantra.
