Sri Rama's name is also quoted in the holy Sri Guru Granth Sahib many times along with several other names from all religions and communities making it the most recent universal faith holy Granth!
Guru Nanak's Mool Mantar which appears in the beginning of Sri Guru Granth Sahib is "Ik Onkaar, Sat Naam, Karta Purkh, Nirbhou Nirveyr, Akal Murat, Ajuni Sabhang, Gur Parsad; Jap; Aad Sach, Jugad Sach, Hai Bhi Sach, Nanak Hosi Bhi Sach”! It is followed by Pehli Pauri which ends saying, Hukam Rajaie Chalna, Nanak Likhiya Naal! His prayer says Nanak Naam Charhdi Kala, Tere Bhane Sarbat Da Bhala!
To the best of my knowledge and belief, its meaning as per Guru Nanak's spiritual & scientific philosophy is that there is one and only one real God who is the greatest and the mightiest Almighty Divine Force, who is the sum-total of all the natural forces which control the whole universe (Naam), who always exists, who is the doer, the creator, the provider, the sustainer, the controller, and the all in all of the whole universe, who is fearless and doesn't have any enmity or hatred against anyone, who is timeless and immortal, who is neither born nor dies, who doesn't enter into any life cycles, who is self-existent and omnipresent, whose blessings are always showered on everyone, Thy name (Divine Force or Naam) should always be worshiped!
And who exists right from the pre-beginning and beginning itself, who exists from times immemorial and different eras, who is existing at present also, and who will always exist in future also, whose blessings are always showered on everyone, Thy name (Divine Force or Naam) should always be worshiped!
The Mool Mantar thus gives an authentic scientific definition of God, the Almighty Divine Force, and it does miracles by considering that Work is Worship, and God helps those who help themselves, and Que Sera Sera - Whatever will be, will be! Finally, it is the Will of God, the Almighty Divine Force, which always prevails and one has to accept it and move ahead! According to his universal prayer, let there be always goodwill, goodness and happiness for everyone everywhere all the time! It is also explained in the link given below:
Maharaja Ranjit Singh, the great Sikh Ruler who extended the boundaries of Punjab from Delhi in India to Lahore in Pakistan to Kabul in Afganistan also worshiped Thy God's name through Guru Nanak's Mool Mantar, and proved himself to be the best Leader all over the world according to a recent BBC world survey as per the following link
Jo Bole So Nihal, Sat Sri Akal means that God, the greatest and the mightiest Almighty Divine Force, Akal Purkh, always exists, and anyone who worships Thy name anywhere at any time in any way will always be happy and gets peace of mind!
