The first part of the mantra, ‘Guru Guru Wahay Guru,’ is a nirgun mantra (nirgun means without any qualities)—one which vibrates only to infinity, having no actual finite components. It projects the mind t the source of knowledge and ecstasy.
The second part, ‘Guru Ram Das Guru,’ is a sirgun mantra (sirgun means with form). It therefore projects the mind to infinity and then gives a finite guiding relationship on a practical level.
This mantra was given to Yogi Bhajan by Guru Ram Das in his astral Self.
