Welcome to my blog, Sat Nam Wahe Guru. I will be adding posts talking about Kundalini and Hatha Yoga. My website has been updated and I will add this blog to the site. Please fell free to leave any comments.
I would like to start with a brief explanation of the words “Sat Nam”:
Satnam (Gurmukhī script: ਸਤਿਨਾਮੁ) is a title given to God Almighty. It was first used in Vaishnava context. Kabir composed the word Satnam from “Satya” (True) and “Naam” (Name).Tulsidas (writer of the Ghata Ramayana) writes, “Saint Tulsidas states that the Satnam is superior both to Brahm and Ram.”
It is the first word that appears in the Sikh sacred scripture called the Guru Granth Sahib. It is part of the Gurbani shabad called Mool Mantra which is repeated daily by all Sikhs. This word succeeds the word “Ek-onkar” which means “There is only One God”. The word “Satnam” means that “God’s Name is Truth”.
A Gursikh (or Guru’s Sikh) is one who follows the Sikh Guru’s teachings only. The Word Satnam has profound and blissful understanding for a Gursikh. A Gursikh would research and find the truth about Satnam by praying to the Guru for guidance as enshrines and illuminates the Guru Granth Sahib.
This brief explanation was from a wiki at the following address http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Satnam
Hope everyone has a Peaceful Easter and I will see you next week.
