Mul Mantar (Fundamental Sacred Utterance) is the first verse of Guru Granth (Sikh Holy Scripture). All Sikh values and knowledge of God are based on the Mul Mantar (Mool Mantra).
Sikhism believes that God does not belong to any one religion. He reveals Himself to all people (indiscriminate of religion) who show pure love from their hearts and recognize God's beautiful presence in all of His creations. The mantra was gifted by Guru Nanak for everyone who wishes to find the root of their existence.
The meaning of the verse is as follows:
EK ONKAAR There is only one God
SAT NAAM Truth is His Name
KARATAA PURAKH He is the Doer of everything
NIRBHO He is without fear
NIRVAIR He is without enemies
AKAAL MOORAT He is without Death (immortal)
AJOONEE SAIBHANG He is without Birth (always existed)
GUR PRASAAD He reveals His Grace through the Guru
JAP Repeat His Name
AAD SUCH God was the Truth before time began
JUGAAD SUCH God was the Truth when time commenced
HAI BHI SUCH God is the Truth in the present time
NANAK HOSEE BHI SUCH God will remain the Truth when time ends
In short it means:
One Universal creator God, The supreme Unchangeable Truth, The Creator of the Universe, Beyond Fear, Beyond Hatred, Beyond Death, Beyond Birth, Self-Existent, by the Guru's Grace.
"Ik Onkar" is a symbol that represents the One Supreme Reality and is a central tenet of Sikh religious philosophy. The symbol communicates the idea of one creative being, or one God, manifesting in all of existence.
