(Some pronunciation: Kaar = “car”; Saat = “sut” rhymes with mutt; roll all the R’s.)
Approximate translation of the first line:
Infinite Oneness creates Creation, that Truth elicits the blessings from Light!
That 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.
