Wah Yantee mantra for intuition – meaning

Mantra for Intuition – Lyrics

Waa yantee kar yantee
Jag dut patee
Aadak it waha brahmaday
Trayshaa guroo
It wahay guroo.

Wah Yantee mantra – Translation

Great Macroself, Creative Self.
All that is creative through time,
All that is the Great One.
Three aspects of God: Brahma, Vishnu, Mahesh.
That is Wahe Guru.


This mantra was given by Patanjali, a great Yogi. It is said that over two thousand years ago, Patanjali was lecturing students on prophets who would come in the iron age, the age of Kaliyug.

Patanjali is known as the father of modern yoga. He did not invent yoga. Yoga was already there in various forms, which he assimilated into a system.

Shiva, the Adiyogi or first yogi, transmitted yoga to the Sapta Rishis or the seven sages many thousands of years ago. He had the highest comprehension of human nature, but he didn’t put anything down in writing.

He was too wild to be a scholar. He discovered it was too difficult to put everything he knew into one individual, so he chose seven people and put distinctive aspects of yoga into them. These turned into the seven basic forms of yoga. Even today, though these have branched off into hundreds of systems, yoga has still maintained seven distinct forms.

Patanjali prophesied Guru Nanak Dev Ji’s coming into the world and gave the “Wah Yankee” mantra, which describes Wahe Guru.

The “Wah Yantee” mantra also predicted the coming of the “Wahe Guru” mantra.

Yogi Bhajan said that it was a mantra of awakening your intuition. Its ancient nature (having been chanted for over two thousand years) makes it the “culmination of hundreds of years of prayer”.

It’s a tough world out there. No one wants to feel alone. But when you live your life externally, connecting more with your TV than your inner vision, the signal from the Universe can get scrambled. Loneliness, sadness, fear, and anger are all symptoms of needing to strengthen your connection to your own intuition.

Feeling your way through existence with your heart, rather than your head, can help make all the unhappiness leak out of your body. Your intuition is a sweet and nurturing stream of information that comes to you when you are clear and ready to receive it.

What is the Ajna chakra?

The sixth chakra, Ajna, is in the area of the third eye, which is found in the space between the eyebrows. It encompasses the pituitary gland, eyes, head, and lower part of the brain. An invisible yet powerful third eye — this is your center of intuition.

A spiritual chakra, which means “beyond wisdom,” Ajna leads you to inner wisdom, that will guide you if you let it. An open sixth chakra can enable clairvoyance, telepathy, lucid dreaming, expanded imagination, and visualization.
