Guru Mantra of Guru Ram Das
Wise, wise is the one who serves infinity.
Mantra: Guroo Guroo Wha-hay Guroo Guroo Ram Das Guroo
Posture: Sit in easy pose with your hands in Gyan Mudra. Close your eyes and meditate at the brow point. Repeat the mantra in a monotone or sing along with a musical version.
Time: You can practice this meditation for any amount of time. Start with 3 minutes and work up to 62 minutes or even 2½ hours.
Comments: This is a mantra of humility, relaxation, self-healing and emotional relief. It calls on the spirit of humility and grace of the realm of Guru Ram Das, with its spiritual guiding light and protective grace. It reconnects the experience of infinity to the finite, and therefore rescues you in the midst of trial and danger.
The first part, Guroo Guroo Wha-hay Guroo is a nirgun mantra (nirgun means without any qualities) - one which vibrates only to infinity, having no actual finite components. It projects the mind to the source of knowledge and ecstasy. The second part, Guroo Ram Das Guroo is a sirgun mantra (sirgun means with form). It therefore projects the mind to infinity and then gives a finite guiding relationship on a practical level.
Yogi Bhajan considered this mantra to be his personal mantra and it was given to Yogi Bhajan by Guru Ram Das in his astral self.
