The Guru Ram Das Mantra: Self Healing and Humility

Guru Guru Wahe Guru, Guru Ram Das Guru

This is a mantra of self-healing, humility, relaxation, protective grace, and emotional relief. It calls on the spirit of humility and grace of  Guru Ram Das .

The Guru Ram Das mantra is an ashtang mantra. Ashtang mantras have eight parts. They catalyze the kundalini energy to initiate through your own effort and devotion. The first part of the mantra, Guru Guru Wahe Guru, projects the mind to the Infinite, the source of knowledge and ecstasy. The second part, Guru Ram Das Guru, means “the wisdom that comes as a servant of the Infinite.”

This mantra projects the mind to the Infinite and then brings finite guidance on a practical level.
