In the Lap of Guru Ram Das- Wahe Guru Kaur, 1996

Screen Shot 2019-12-10 at 2.44.59 PM.png

Guru Ram Das is considered the miracle worker in the Sikh tradition. A common passage for Sikh devotees to recite is “Dhan Dhan Ram Das Gur, Jin Siriya Tinai Savarya” which means “Blessings come from Guru Ram Das, just as you have been created. Perfect is your miracle…” I wanted to write a song that would convey what it might feel like to be a child held by the mother, basically to be in the lap of that perfection, to be held by that perfection that Guru Ram Das embodied.

 

I would later meet Amma (www.amma.org) who embraces people and transmits the energy of miracles and meditative consciousness with her embrace, which is the feeling of this song. I believe all teachers of Light are connected and all beings are all connected in a network of love and Light. We receive those blessings when we align with purity of consciousness and open our hearts.

-Wah!

About the artist:

Wah! began her journey in yoga in 1979 when she attended morning sadhana for a week while spending spring break with her college dance professor and her husband. The breath work, energy, music and mantra were illuminating and changed her life course. She immersed herself in yogic practices and continues to this day, teaching yoga & self-healing classes, workshops, leadership trainings and concerts. She did several albums with the Cherdi Kala label, who created music for the western Sikh population. Wah! has become a legend in the yoga world, creating upbeat mantra music for yoga and meditation practice.
