Ang Sang Wahe Guru: A Mantra of Oneness

Ang Sang Wahe Guru 

Ang Sang Wahe Guru translates as:

“The lnfinite Being is within me and vibrates in ecstasy in every molecule and cell of my being.”

Ang is 'cell’ or 'limb.'

Sang is 'in every part,' or 'with every part.'

Whaa-hay is the indescribable living ecstasy of lnfinite Being.

Guroo is wisdom or the knowledge that transforms your mind, emotions and essence.

Chanting this mantra synchronizes the finite sense of self to the lnfinite Oneness.

This mantra expresses a universal truth. Repeating it creates a thought, which gradually guides the psyche to adjust itself. lt reconnects every fragmented projection of the psyche, each separated part of the body, and synchronizes the finite to the Infinite.

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. lt brings the inner peacefulness that comes only from the touch and scope of spirit.

The dynamic, loving energy of the Infinite is dancing in every limb and every cell of our being. lndividual consciousness merges with the Universal Consciousness. With this mantra, we experience that we are not alone. The lnfinite One is with us in every cell and every limb of our being. We feel the Divine Presence removing our fears and loneliness.

On the Mantra Ang Sang Wahe Guru

By Gurucharn Singh

Everything that is in creation has its own essence and sound, its mantra. In the mantra, Ang Sang Wahe Guru, Ang is a part or elementary part. Sang is every, or all. Ang Sang is when the polarity of Ang/masculine and Sang/feminine combine so every part is connected seamlessly with all other parts. That sound and projection is the open invitation to experience Wahe Guru—the infinite wisdom and presence of reality. Ang Sang Wahe Guru is to experience the ecstasy of all parts, finite and infinite together.

Yogi Bhajan taught us to chant this mantra consciously. Look at the tip of the nose. First notice the tongue, mouth, and reflexes that accompany conscious chanting. Then connect the sounds spoken at the Navel Point. Speak each sound with the navel energy activated. Then as the energy builds and the central channel of the spine opens, vibrate all time and space from that central channel.

Merge into that infinite pulse and let the innate structure of the sound, the naad, raise your Kundalini, dissolve your ego and your fears, and immerse you in the clarity and ecstasy of the Oneness of All.
