|English term or phrase: Jai guru de va om|
|In Beatles song "Across the Universe"|
|English translation:don't translate it...|
"Jai guru de va om" is a mantra, a ritual phrase repeated on and on... Its meaning is irrelevant, the power lies in the sounds...
I am including a couple of directions where you can find the lyrics in English and in Spanish as well, in both languages it is left untranslated

|Although I found out what it means,I agree the power lies in the sounds for that song and the meaning is mostly irrelevant. However, if it meant something bad (which it doesn't) then it would become important to me.|

You are not the first one who wanted to know...
Here's what I have found:
"Heya. I was out searching on the web all day because I wanted to know what "Jai guru de va om" means. It's a line in Across the Universe by John and Paul. Well, I finally found out what it means. It means "Glory to the spiritual master" so I thought I'd come here and tell everyone in case anyone else was wondering."
