Mool Mantar

The Mool Mantar is the first hymn in the Guru Granth Sahib. The ‘Mool Mantra’ sums up Sikh beliefs about God, and is said to be Guru Nanak’s first teaching.

The Mantra :

ੴ ਸਤਿ ਨਾਮੁ ਕਰਤਾ ਪੁਰਖੁ ਨਿਰਭਉਨਿਰਵੈਰੁ ਅਕਾਲ ਮੂਰਤਿ ਅਜੂਨੀ ਸੈਭੰ ਗੁਰ ਪ੍ਰਸਾਦਿ ॥

Ik­oaʼnkār saṯ nām karṯā purakẖ nirbẖa­o nirvair akāl mūraṯ ajūnī saibẖaʼn gur parsāḏ.




Ek Onkaar – There is only one God

Sat Naam – God’s Name is eternal truth

Karta Purakh – God is the Creator who is pervading in everything

Nirbhao – God is without fear and is all bliss

Nirvair – God is without hate or enmity

Akal Murat –  God is beyond time, space, form and features 

Ajuni Saibhan – God is beyond birth & death and is self-manifested and self-existent

Gur Parsad – Oneness with the One Truth is realized with the Grace of the True Guru
