Wah Hay Guru! is the Wow! realization of God, as Guru spontaneously transforms darkness, GU, into ROO--light. To understand this mantra's power and vastness within you, reach your arms up to the heavens, chant "Wah-hay Guroo!" and imagine light bursting from darkness and flooding the Cosmos. Force yourself to chant "Wah-hay Guroo!" through overwhelming emotions--anger, fear, frenzy, grief, to dispel illusion. Chant "Wah-hay Guroo!" loudly, joyfully, while taking a cold shower first thing in the morning to shed the cold and burn off your karmas. Silently chant "Wah-hay Guroo!" with the motion of Breath of Fire to energize your electro-magnetic field and activate all the chakras. "Wah-hay Guroo!" does not need a translation to be understood. Discover its meaning through your personal experience. Like all mantras in pure Nadh, ""Wah-hay Guroo!" is what it feels and sounds like.
Yogi Bhajan gave a clear technology for churning "Wah-hay Guru!" to create Tapa, inner heat that creates the most optimum, blissful effect even when "Wah-hay Guru!" is chanted silently:
WAH - Straighten your spine, stretch the mouth open and pull the navel in and up on WAH.
HAY - With a broad smile, raise your chest and bring HAY up into your heart.
GU - Tuck back the chin and pucker your lips in a kiss as you vibrate GU at the third eye.
ROO - Keeping the spine straight, sweetly relax and let ROO flow down your nose toward the navel to begin again.
