about

While recording the song 'A Master's Request', the guitarist Ric Flauding played his beautiful composition 'Elizabeth's Dream'. I started chanting the mantra Guru Guru Wahe Guru to it and it was so beautiful that we went ahead and recorded it to include on this album. This piece is one of my personal favorites. I've played it on repeat for long periods of time on airplanes, around my home and throughout the night to calm down and connect. When a dear friend of mine died in 2005, this piece was a personal anchor to peace of mind and divinity.

lyrics

Guru Guru Wahe Guru
(Guru Mantra of Guru Ram Das)

Guroo guroo wha-hay guroo guroo ram das guroo

Translation: Wise, wise is the one who serves Infinity.

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 that vibrates only to infinity, having no actual finite components. It projects the mind to this source of knowledge and ecstasy. The second part, Guru 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. This mantra was given to Yogi Bhajan by Guru Ram Das in his astral Self.

This is in praise of the consciousness of Guru Ram Das, invoking his spiritual light, guidance, and protective grace. We are filled with humility.
