  4. whatever name that you're japping. We didn't go in depth into this topic, he just said don't get focused on anhad shabad, go past it. i (personal view) see it as a helper. listening to it pulls your surti out from the world so you can more easily focus on naam. But if you are already focused than its fine to completely ignore it and focus on naam.
  5. @dalsingh101 veer ji i found this saakhi from Baba Harnam Singh Ji Rampurkhera wale which reminded me from your experince with the cat and doing simran. https://www.sikhnet.com/gurbani/audio/guru-nanak-dev-jis-darshan-022
  6. Veer ji here a few quick results i have found so far but i will add more when i get new information http://www.dsgharkhowal.com/?page_id=84 https://www.santisharsinghji.com/product/thirteen-diamonds-the-treasures-of-bhai-daya-singh-ji/ https://www.sikhiwiki.org/index.php/Daya_Singh_Samparda
  7. If you come from a SIkh background, don't you think it might be time to learn to read Gurmukhi now?
  8. Another distinct difference I note with a few chariters is that most of them have this formulaic phrase about the beauty of one of the characters along the lines of (paraphrase): Her beauty was such that even the moon became coy upon seeing her face. Or the something involving the gods and/or goddesses becoming coy at seeing the beauty. I think this might be sarcasm or something like that? But a few of them don't have it, like this one. And we should maybe note clustering of chariters. I'm wondering if the inclusion of a few jut chariters in amongst this recent cluster of chariters that draws heavily on popular folklore is purposeful? Is it some sort of recognition or related to the fact that this demographic likes these folkloric romance tales? And note this chariter is grounded in that it doesn't weave Indic mythological elements within like previous ones have.

      Very good quotes veer ji

  13. Except humans nobody laughs. I don't think you would have ever seen a bird laughing or a dog laughing. This privilege is only given to humans. If we want to remain humans, humour has to be there just to relax. But we have so much association with the past species; we find it hard to laugh. Unknown.
  14. Pen Jee, though your post above is 5 years now, I can tell you that you have a very positive and a brave view about your situation. It is true that, your pain is due to your past karam, which will go only when it is duely settled, but Pen Jee, Waheguru the all merciful has also given us the chance to mitigate that pain to an extent, so, you may continue taking the medicines, there is nothing wrong in it. Like, if we are hungry, we go for food; if we are thirsty we want to drink water, in a similar way, if we are in pain we should take medicines. Not that, Waheguru will come and feed us, or give us water, for that purpose He has given us sense of discrimination to use it in the right manner and for our own benefit. Waheguru has never to blamed for any of our misfortunes or miseries, for it is all our past karam, our own sown seeds... At the same time, we should engage ourselves in doing His real Bhakti, for with it by His apaar kirpa, we may arise to certain consciouss level within, where even while going through heavy karam, we may not feel its effects. Of course this is a very saintly state, yet we should go for it, for we have nothing to loose, but at least be receptive to His apaar kirpa. Stay blessed. SSA.
  15. Blonde walks into a doctors office and says: "Doctor, what’s the problem with me? When I touch my arm, ouch! It hurts... When I touch my leg, ouch! it hurts... When I touch my head, ouch! It hurts... When I touch my chest, ouch! it really hurts!" The Doctor replies: "Your finger is broken." Little Johnny was in church with him mom for Sunday Mass when he suddenly felt nauseous. "Mom, I think I'm going to throw up!" She told him, "I want you to run outside as fast as you can. Run across the lawn and go behind the bushes. You can throw up behind the bushes and nobody will see you." So Little Johnny hauled ass for the door. Less than a minute later, he returned to his seat next to his mom. He had the look of obvious relief on his young face. "Did you make it all the way to the bushes, Johnny?" "I didn't have to go that far, mom. Just as I got to the front door, I found a box that had a sign on it: FOR THE SICK." A blonde and a lawyer are seated next to each other on a flight from LA to NY. The lawyer asks if she would like to play a fun game? The blonde, tired, just wants to take a nap, politely declines and rolls over to the window to catch a few winks. The lawyer persists and explains that the game is easy and a lot of fun. He explains, "I ask you a question, and if you don't know the answer, you pay me $5.00, and vice versa. " Again, she declines and tries to get some sleep. The lawyer, now agitated, says, "Okay, if you don't know the answer you pay me $5.00, and if I don't know the answer, I will pay you $500.00." This catches the blonde's attention and, figuring there will be no end to this torment unless she plays, agrees to the game. The lawyer asks the first question. "What's the distance from the earth to the moon?" The blonde doesn't say a word, reaches into her purse, pulls out a $5.00 bill and hands it to the lawyer. "Okay" says the lawyer, "your turn." She asks the lawyer, "What goes up a hill with three legs and comes down with four legs?" The lawyer, puzzled, takes out his laptop computer and searches all his references, no answer. He taps into the air phone with his modem and searches the net and the library of congress, no answer. Frustrated, he sends e-mails to all his friends and coworkers, to no avail. After an hour, he wakes the blonde, and hands her $500.00. The blonde says, "Thank you," and turns back to get some more sleep. The lawyer, who is more than a little miffed, wakes the blonde and asks, "Well, what's the answer?" Without a word, the blonde reaches into her purse, hands the lawyer $5.00, and goes back to sleep. And you thought blondes were dumb.
  16. are there any flaws in the Sikh faith? Simple answer is no, for sikhee is not a path by any ordinay human being, but He Waheguru Akal Purukh Himself, the most wise and perfect being, through His manifestations as Guru Sahiban and Bhagat Jan. Other thing is, how we low and highly tainted manmukh jeevas interpret their teachings. To see the simplicity and completeness of Sikhee, let us take the following 5 sat bachan of a verse from the Bani. Ekas bin, sabh dandh hae. Here Guru Jee is telling us, apart from that One supreme being Akal Purukh, every other thing is perishable. So be it anything done, which does not take us to that One, is useless. So once again, what is it that only that takes us to Him? As per Bani, the answer is: Jin Har japeeya, se Har hoeeya. We may want to listen many things, or interpretations from the Bani or interact in so called intelectual discussions, but, Gurbani is crystal clear, in telling us simple and clear facts of devoting ourselves to this Truth, and One and only Supreme Truth: Nam/Shabad. Otherwise, we are sure to get drowned by the flaws in the form of spiritual ignorance, or asat/koor. Stay blessed. SSA.
  17. Just my 2 cents, to understand what Mahaparlay is, let us see how the creation is divided. There are several levels of consciousness, or planes, or regions so to say. The lowest is this material creation, above it is the astral region, and above that is the causal region. It is called causal, becuase it is there where all our store karma gets accumulated. This is the region, from where all the incarnations with their abodes/heavens; prophets, and some highly eveolved spiritual beings come to our level, with a particular of keeping this mayavee creation going on. This region is also known as Brahm, for maya is still very much present there. Which has nothing to do with the god Brahma. After that comes, Parbrahm region, much purer than the regions mentioned above, yet it is not pure spiritual, there is utter darkness, so much that it is known as Maha Sunn. This can only be crossed in the company of Shabad Guru, for, Shabad Guru only, has the Jot to pierce that utter darkness. At the end of Maha Sunn, is the end of the perishable creation. After Maha Sunn, comes Sach Khand, the region of eternity, immortality, purity and Supreme Truth/Satnam. It is from this region, from where Akal Purukh descends, not as any incarnations or any gods of any trinity, but only, as Guru Sahiban, Gurmukhs, Sant Jan and Bhagat Jan, for the only purpose of, giving us jeevas their bountiful love and unlimited mercy, and to reveal us the mysteries about the Supreme Truth, Waheguru, as Nam or Shabad, for they are the very manisfestation of Him, at our level. Had He not come so, we by ourselves, could never ever reach Him, for we would be very much astrayed in rituals, gods, idol worship...... manmat In this respect, the Bani clearly tells us: Mat koe barahm bhoolay sansaar, bin Satgur, koe na utraas paar. Let us have a look around ourselves, and see how many from the whole creation know about Waheguru ? How many then, implicitly follow instructions from the Bani in devoting themselves to Waheguru, in order to realize Him, and merge in Him? As sikhs, our goal should be only Waheguru Akal Purukh, for in Him alone lies our true welfare, for only by devoting ourselves to Him, we get throughly cleansed/purified from all the filth of our sins/karmas, obtain liberation from the wheel of 84, and only then become fit and worthy to merge and become one with Him. Waheguru is IK, one only. In Him, there is no trinity, no variety, no forms such at turtle, no half man-half lion , no sizes, no duality, or any companion such as shakti.....nothing of that sort...that is all maya, and I am so sorry, that inspite of the incomparable magnificence and Infinity of Waheguru, many many of our sikh brothers and sisters, get impressed by the powers and forms of those incarnations, thus mistakenly believe that those forms are of Waheguru, which is not true at all .... To see the differences between all these mayavee forms and our beloved Guru Sahiban, we have to pay careful attention to the Bani, not as parrots, but as real sikhs by drinking the Amrit in each Sat Bachan from it. Then only we can see, that Gurmat gives only importance to His Saacha Nao, Nam, or Shabad, nothing else, nothing more apart from it... As the Bani says: Jug chaaray Nam outam, shabd veechar. Througout all yugas, Gurmat gives only importance to the One and only Truth, Nam, that is it. Apart from one Him and His Nam, all else is undoubtedly Maya. It is a real pity, that even after having the highest teachings through Gurbani, we keep looking here and there and get confused.... maybe the reason for that, is we do not put into practice, what we are repeatedly told in the Bani as seen in the following sat bachan of Guru Jee: Har Naam Bisaariaa, Bahu Karam Dhrirraaeae They forget the Lord's Name, and in its place, they establish all sorts of rituals(practices) Bhavajal Ddoobae Dhoojai Bhaaeae They drown in the terrifying world-ocean, in the love of duality. Raag Gauri, Sree Guru Amar Das Maharaj. Stay blessed. SSA.

      The best thing i have read today veer ji thanks for posting

  20. Was reading a little bit of Ramayan for research purposes and saw a reference to the same Apsara Rambha there.
  21. "You don't drown by falling in water. You drown by staying there."

    - Unknown

    *Note: in a similar way, by being in the web  mayavee creation is not the motive to be stuck in the cycle of 84, it is by not meditating on Him as per Bani, to get out of this false web/creation and merge in Him forever.

      Very nice quotes veer ji

  22. "Letting go doesn't mean that we forget..but.. it does mean that we can move on without regrets and without pain...Don't let the past ruin your present and let the present tell you the future...

     

    If you're still looking for that one person who will change your life,take a look in the mirror.
    Make a great day

     

    Happiness is an attitude. We either make ourselves miserable,
    or happy and strong. The amount of work is the same.
    Good Morning Ji!
