Ek Ong Kaar
Saat Gur Prasaad
Saat Gur Prasaad Ek Ong Kaar
(Some pronunciation: Kaar = “car”; Saat = “sut” rhymes with mutt; roll all the R’s.)
translation of the first line:
Infinite Oneness creates Creation, that Truth elicits the blessings from Light!
God and We are One!
This mantra is a gutka shabd (sacred sound that cuts through)—one that reverses the mind.
It is the essence of the Siri Guru Granth Sahib (the Sikh scriptures). If the mantra is chanted
just five times, it will stop the mind and put it into reverse gear. The Siri Guru will sit in your heart.
It can stop anything negative. It is so strong that it elevates the self beyond duality and establishes
the flow of spirit. This mantra makes the mind so powerful that it removes all obstacles. Its
positive effects happen quickly and last a long time. It needs to be chanted with reverence, in a place
of reverence. This mantra brings great intuition to the practitioner (listening to Soul’s guidance
and feeling Its love). After chanting this mantra, anything you say will be amplified and created with
great force. So have a positive projection and do not say anything negative.
Normally when you chant mantras correctly, you benefit, and
when you chant them incorrectly, they don’t have any ill effect. But if you chant this mantra incorrectly,
it has a backlash. Normally we invoke the sacred before practicing this mantra. Chant
the Mul Mantra* or the Mangala Charn* mantra before practicing it.
Bhajan: “Ek Ong Kaar Sat Gur Prasad (etc.) is the most powerful of all mantras. There
is not anything equal to it nor can anything explain it. Ek Ong Kaar, Sat Gur Prasad(etc.) is the pritam
mantra. The entire Siri Guru Granth Sahib is nothing but an explanation of this Mantra.”Yogi Bhajan, April 26, 1976
