Mool Mantra   E-mail 

By Ram Das Kaur Khalsa

?Mool? means ?root? and ?Mantra? means ?a group of sounds which relate the mind to the Infinite?. There is only one Mool Mantra and that is the one which begins the Siri Guru Granth Sahib (see meaning on left) :

"Ek Ongkaar, Sat Naam, Karta Purkh, Nirbhao, Nirvair, Akal Moorat, Ajoonee Saibhang, Gurprasaad. Jap. Aad Sach, Jugaad Sach, Hai Bhee Sach, Nanak Hosee Bhee Sach."

The recitation of this mantra for eleven minutes a day rids one of fear and keeps one in touch with the very foundation or root of life, the soul. Reciting it rids one of all enemies.

All the qualities before the ?Jap? come to live in the one who recites the mantra which follows the ?Jap?. This part of the Mool Mantra, ?Aad sach...Nanak hosee bhee sach,? invokes the shakti power in the reciter, activates the kundalini (the latent consciousness or potential energy in the being), expanding one?s horizon and giving one the power of Infinity.

The secret in the Mool Mantra is that you must not break the breath, but break the sound, between ?ajoonee? and ?saibhang?. There is a gap of sound, but no breath must be taken between the words. The gap is not long, just silent.

The greatest effect from the Mool Mantra occurs when it is recited all in one breath.
