Sat Naam


Recommended Posts

Gurmukho,

What is Sat Naam (ਸਤਿਨਾਮੁ or ਸਤਿ ਨਾਮੁ)?

Is it Waheguru

or names mentioned in Mool Mantar

or all the names of Lord (Hari, Krishna, Ram, Allah, Parbraham and many more)?

As per my limited understanding,

Waheguru is Gurumantar.

Names which comes after Sat Naam in Moolmantar are Sat Naam (true names) of His. These names represent Him as ਆਦਿ ਸਚੁ ਜੁਗਾਦਿ ਸਚੁ.

All other names like Hari, Karishna, Shiv, Bisan, Allah are just Sargun names. Karishna existed somewhere in time line and can't be a true name. Same can be said for other Sargun names.

Please comment.

Gurbani itself makes that clear, especially Dasam Bani.

Satnam just means that His name is true. True because it is permanent, never changing, and always was, always will be. Something that changes or dies to be born again can not be considered 'sat'. Waheguru has infinite names, but for us, the most important one is Gurmantar. You can't pick and choose which naam to jaap or keep changing it - there's no way you'll be able to concentrate.

Gurmantar is indeed Waheguru, but it only becomes a Gurmantar when given to you by your Guru - i.e. during Amrit Sanchar.
