Nirbhao(ਨਿਰਭਉ) means Fearless or Without Fear. It is quality of the One i.e God. It is mentioned in Mool Mantar. Bhao translates as fear, and Nir translates as without. God is without fear: Origin of fear is possible only if there is another being besides Him. Fear always involves the other: if someone can take something away from you it destroys your security. But, as God is Absolute, Himself immanent in all His Creation, whom is He to be afraid of? A corollary to this attribute, stated positively, is that God is all Bliss.
