Sat Narayan Wahe Guru is a mantra which is chanted to create inner peace, happiness and good luck.
The full text: Sat Narayan Wahe Guru Hari Narayan Sat Nam.
Below you will find two translations: 1) the translation from Panjabi that was given to me by an Indian meditation teacher in Rishikesh, 2) the translation that I found on the Internet. Exact meaning of the mantra in Panjabi is “Our guru is true like Vishnu, Vishnu’s and our guru’s names are truth”.
Translation: Sat Narayan: 1) Sat means truth, Narayan means Vishnu, 2) Sat Narayan is True Sustainer;
Wahe Guru: 1) Our Guru, 2) Infinite Wisdom, the Guru Mantra, the mantra of ecstasy, chanting it elevates the spirit;
Hari Narayan: 1) Hari is a Krishna’s name, Narayan means Vishnu, 2) A creative source (makes the one who chants it intuitively clear or healing);
Sat Nam: 1) Sat is truth, Nam is name, 2) True Identity (Sat means the Truth; Nam means to call upon, name or identify with, means Truth is my identity and I call upon the eternal Truth that resides in all of us.).
This mantra brings purity of consciousness, clarity of mind and perception. A person with low self-esteem can become completely majestic by chanting the mantra. This meditation can help you to clear your mind and to look beyond this world to realize the Infinite, and “go with the flow”.
