Sat Kartar Mantra translation:
God is the Doer
Sat Kartar mantra meaning:
This mantra represents the sound that Guru Nanak (was the founder Sikh Path and the first of the ten Sikh Gurus), would speak, albeit things would happen, good or bad. His response was, this words, and in effect he was saying, God or the Great Divine One, is the One doing this action (all our actions, his actual saying we have no free will).
The „Sat” in the mantra is first describing the Soul’s True Sound (signifies Essence of Truth, or Being). It is said that precisely behind the heart is assumedly where the Soul locates.
„Kartar” implies Doer, and when the 2 words are united, it is to say „Doer, Manifestor, or Walker of the Truth.”
However, when these primordial sounds are daily chanted over time, as a practice, we are in effect, opening, purifying, expanding, and leading the spirited flow of the Heart.
The second aspect of this healing mantra is that it is a key to living in a higher state of Faith.
We are calling our souls to walk, to experience and feel, to do, in our lives with the knowledge and understanding that the Divine One is working in all situations.
To sense and feel the trusting, faithful aspect of love in our lives, we occasionally need to first do the work to open and trust the flow of the Divine doing everything.
When we open ourselves to that Flow then we establish and grant a path for the Universe to Flow back to us in return, with All it is waiting to give to us.
As you recite SAT, put your hands pressed together in Prayer. Pose at the heart chakra (Anahata chakra).
As you chant KAR, the hands are extended out from the shoulders, half-way approaching the final position. Fingers are pointing straight up.
As you say TAR, the arms are completely extended out to the sides and alongside to the floor, fingers pointing up. Make the transition from step to step a sinuous movement.
