Mool Mantra is the foundation of Sikh philosophy; its world view and its experience of Truth. It is the first Shabad (hymn) sung by Guru Nanak Dev Ji, the first and the founder of the Sikhs some five hundred and fifty years ago.
"Mool" means root and mantra is composed of "Mun" or a collective term for thoughts and emotions, sometimes translated as "Mind" and "Tra" means a technique or method of swimming across. So, Mantra is a tool and technique that is utilized as mental tool for Self-growth towards Self-Realisation.

Mool Mantra is indeed a magic formula that through mindful remembrance (simran), a combination of Naam (Mantra) and Dhyan (Meditation) gives rise to Gyan (intuitive access to wisdom). The Mool Mantra is the very foundation of Guru Nanak Dev Ji's thought and is the Fundamental Prayer of Sikhs.
