Mantra: Ardas Bhaee

Complete Mantra: Ardas Bhaee Amar Das Guru, Amar Das Guru, Ardas Bhaee, Ram Das Guru, Ram Das Guru, Ram Das Guru, Sachee Sahee


Translation: The prayer has been given to Guru Amar Das.
The prayer is manifested by Guru Ram Das.
The miracle is complete.

More Information: Guru Amar Das is the energy of grace and hope when there is no hope. Guru Ram Das is the energy of miracles, healings and blessings. This is the prayer to answer all prayers.

Comments: Guru is that which directs one from (gu) darkness to (ru) light; from ignorance to the experience of one’s infinite nature. The Ardaas Bahee mantra may be translated, ‘The prayer that has been made to Guru Amar Das is guaranteed by Guru Ram Das.’ This is the mantra for answered prayers.

Guru Amar Das is the third of the Sikh Gurus. He lived from 1479 to 1574. He is said to embody generosity and equality. Guru Ram Das, his son-in-law, is the fourth of the Sikh Gurus. He lived from 1534 until 1581. He is said to embody humility, loving service and compassion.

Ram means ’servant of the Lord.’ If you ask something of Guru Ram Das he has to bring it to God for you. Give your worries to Guru Ram Das and let him take them to God. The God that rotates the earth can certainly take care of your problems!

“Normally there is no power in the human but the power of prayer. And to do prayer, you have to put your mind and body together and then pray from the soul. Ardas Bahee is a mantra prayer. If you sing it, your mind, body and soul automatically combine and without saying what you want, the need of the life is adjusted. That is the beauty of this prayer.” — Yogi Bhajan

Mantra: Guru Ram Das Mantra

Complete Mantra: Guru Guru Wahe Guru, Guru Ram Das Guru


Source:Dream with Guru Ram Das Ji

Author:Yogi Bhajan

Translation: Guru - teacher or guide that brings one from the darkness to the light.
Wahe - exclamation of ecstacy like ''WOW!''
Ram Das - literally translates as "God's Servant",
but also refers to Guru Ram Das, the Fourth Guru of the Sikhs

More Information: This mantra was given to Yogi Bhajan by Guru Ram Das in His astral self. As Guru Ram Das, the fourth Guru of the Sikhs, was known for humility and healing abilities this mantra is also known for its healing qualities and for imparting humility to the one who chants it.

This mantra relates directly to healing and protective energy represented by Guru Ram Das. The mantra is comprised of two parts. The first part is a nirgun mantra (Guru Guru Wahe Guru). This projects the mind to the source of knowledge and ecstasy. The second part is a sirgun mantra (Guru Ram Das Guru). This means the wisdom that comes as a servant of the infinite. It is the mantra of humility. It reconnects the experience of the finite to infinity.
