The particular melody of this mantra is one that we have been chanting for many many years in Gurdwaras and yoga classes. It’s similar to the tune that Yogi Bhajan first taught when this mantra was first introduced. The difference is that he first chanted it one low melody followed by one high melody, whereas this version is configured as two low/one high/one low. In case you’re interested in such things.
This is a mantra of humility, relaxation, self-healing, and emotional relief. It calls on the spirit of humility and grace of the realm of Guru Ram Das, with its spiritual guiding light and protective grace.

I recorded this piece in 2009 during a time of deep healing from a broken ankle and subsequent surgery. I was 38 days into a 40-day Sat Kriya meditation when I slipped on the ice and entered the new reality for me of broken bones. I actually attempted to continue Sat Kriya on my back and while doped up on pain killers. I quickly learned why we don’t practice Kundalini Yoga that way! The energy moving around was simply too much. So I chilled out and moved through an entirely different pace of gentle and profound healing.
After a few months and when I was actually able to walk again, I contacted Steve Chavez in Espanola and recorded this version of Guru Guru Wahe Guru.
