Sat Nam is a mantra that invokes the true self. It’s often used as a mantra for those on the path to enlightenment – to call into one’s life the supreme reality, the truth of the self and the universe.
I had a teacher once who said, if you’re not ready for transformation, if you don’t want to change jobs, or life partners, maybe it’s best not to chant Sat Nam. Because if you go looking for truth, you’ll lift the veil of disillusionment, and you’ll find it. And the truth isn’t always beautiful women on cliffsides meditating towards the sunset. The truth is not a beautiful fantasy. So be prepared for transformation.
