Comments: This is a meditation to experience our inner purity and to realize that God is the One who Creates through us. The mantra is an untranslatable utterance linking the ecstasy of the Infinite and the ecstasy of the soul.

When Yogi Bhajan taught this meditation, he said, “Your power is how simple, straight and pure, how honest, trustworthy and reliable you are. Your own actions will decide whether your purity, piety, future, God, your prosperity and you are near or far away from you. Watch your purity. See how many good things come to you. Do it for 40 days.”

This meditation was originally taught using the Wahe Guru Wahe Jio section of Raga Sadhana by Sangeet Kaur and Harjinder Singh. You may chant without accompaniment or with another musical version of this mantra.
