Wha-hay guroo wha-hay guroowha-hay guroo wha-hay jeeo
This is a mantra
of ecstasy. Wahe Guru is said to not only be the experience of the divine,
but also impart the experience of the divine. Jio is said to impart an affectionate
relationship to/with the divine.
Yogi Bhajan said
that this mantra means "clear perception of what is important to preserve" and that
it "links the essence of your purpose to the greater minds and souls in the cosmos."
It is one
of the "Aquarian Sadhana" mantra's and can be found on any 3HO sadhana CD.
Snatam Kaurspeaks on Wahe Guru Jio...(www.snatamkaur.com)
“One of the mantras from the Sikh tradition that has really been with me and
I sing a lot is Wahe Guru. Wa means ecstasy or bliss like, wow, and he means it’s
here and now. It’s real. It is. The essence of Guru means from darkness to
light. And so it really means an experience of bliss, experiencing the One and moving
from that space of darkness to light. Jio is very beautiful because it means soul.
So you say Wahe Guru, Wahe Guru, Wahe Guru and then Wahe Jio and you bring the experience
into the touchstone of your soul.

when I can say, “Oh s-h-i-t,” or I can say, “Oh, Wahe Guru.”
The whole idea behind these sacred chants, in
my view, is when that moment of pressure comes, you say Wahe Guru. Then they are
the temples. They become the sacred being. They are that magic that people go all
the way to India seeking.”
Sit it with a straight spine. Hold the hands at the level of the heart center. The right hand is on back of the left hand, both palms face down. The right thumb is bent and comes under the left hand and touches the palm. The left thumb is bent and also touches the left palm. The bent thumbs are pressed together so that thumbnails touch.
