You might have encountered these sacred syllables before: SAT NAM.

My name is truth. This is the meaning of the mantra Sat Nam.

May you rest in the truth that you are. May you have the courage to express it with eloquence and courage. May it set you free.



In the ancient Sikh language called Gurmukhi, Sat translates truth and Nam as name. Together, Sat Nam essentially translates into: “I am truth,” or “Truth is my essence.” It affirms the existence of truth and the value of it.

Sat Nam is a bija mantra – a seed mantra. And just like a seed it begins to germinate inside of you. Within the seed is contained all the knowledge of a fully grown being. Like a tree. The essence or the seed is the identity of truth showing up in condensed form.

The vibration of a mantra shifts us on an atomic level. The vibration of Sat Nam in particular initiates the journey to selfhood. Individual truth and universal truth become one and the same. It merges the idea that the individual and the divine are one and the same, both an embodiment of truth.


Sat Nam is about expressing your true identity, not only for the benefit of yourself but also for others. No one else can express the exact combination of frequencies like you do. You are connected to all there is — the vast universal truth. The world needs you. In an infinite universe, you are unique. For the universe to be complete, you are needed. Otherwise it wouldn’t be whole this moment in time.

To be one self entirely starts with courage. It requires saying YES to who you are, and that involves your own truth. You might have felt that saying YES to yourself means to say NO to others. This might have come across being at odds with your family, with social surroundings, and with the status quo. Your truth might call you to being making a difference.

Speaking and living truth takes courage, but feeling your truth and repressing it is where the real challenge is.


When you chant Sat Nam, you are using the power of the spoken word (the mantra), and you can begin to feel uncomfortable by living in any other way but in your absolute truth.

“And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.” – Anais Nin

Truth is your name.
