Mantra: Ang Sang Wahe Guru

Complete Mantra:Ang Sang Wahe Guru

Language:Gurmukhi

Author:Guru Amar Das

Translation: The dynamic, loving energy of the Infinite Source of All is dancing within my every cell, and is present in my every limb. My individual consciousness merges with the Universal consciousness.

More Information: Ang is 'a part'. Sang is 'in every,' or 'with every'. Wahe is 'the indescribable living ecstasy of Infinite Being'. Guru is 'the knowledge that transforms your mind, emotion and essence.' The whole phrase means, "The Infinite Being, God, is with me, and vibrates in every molecule and cell of my being."

This mantra expresses a universal truth. Repeating it creates a thought, which gradually guides the psyche to adjust itself. It re-connects every fragmented projection of the psyche, each separated part of the body, and synchronizes the finite sense of self to the Infinite Oneness. This act of rejoining the separated parts is the quintessential act of healing. Under attack, under war, under the pressures of fear, this meditation keeps us together, conscious, and ready to act. It brings the inner peacefulness that comes only from the touch and scope of spirit.

- A Commentary by Gurucharan Singh, KRI Director of Training

Instructions

Two meditations are featured in this Global Sadhana, each using the sacred mantra "Ang Sang Waheguru", and one being a wonderful option to do as a couples meditation or simply with a meditation partner.

For Single Practitioners: Sit in easy pose with the finger tips of both hands lightly touching your heart center. Then chant the mantra while raising your right arm 60 degrees and back to the heart, then do the same with the left arm. Alternate between both arms. Eyes are closed. To end raise both arms, inhale, hold the breath, stretch out from your heart, exhale and relax.

Comments: Focus on your heart center and the sense of gratitude (The arm movement is like sharing flowers from your heart. ) You are grateful to all the people in your life, you are grateful for yourself and all the things you have done and are doing.You are merging heaven and earth, you allow the infinite spirit to touch you , opening yourself into the divine flow of creativity from within your center.

For couples and partners: Sit comfortably facing your partner. Hold each other's right hand. Place your left hadn on your partner's heart center. Look deeply into each other's eyes. Connect to the light in each other. Chant Ang Sang Wahe Guru together. Continue for 11 minutes. To end, inhale deeply. Hold the breath. Close your eyes and recognize that your partner represents the entire universe.
