Yogi Bhajan says on chanting the Mul Mantra
“The Mul Mantra is a fate killer. It removes the fate and changes the destiny to complete prosperity.”
Osho translates the Mul Mantra as such:
“He is one, He is Ongkar, the supreme truth. He is the creator, beyond fear, beyond rancor. He is the timeless form, never born, self- creating. He is attained by the guru’s grace. He was truth before the ages and as time ran its course. Nanak says now is he truth eternal and forever will he be.”
