  3. Guruji, what alternative of deer skin we have? Now a days, thought we may somehow manage to get deer skin, but that will be from a hunted deer, not from one which naturally died. Also, if luck is bad, one may fall in trap of law. I will be using a kusha mat, over that any deer skin alternative. Over that a pure wool mat. The woolen mats available in market are made of acrylic wool, which is in fact not wool but chemical with no significance for sadhana. So, I will buy merino wool and get a mat knit by someone. And over that I will put a piece of ahimsha silk. Instead of deer skin can we use sheep skin or just a cotton filled cushion?

  8. Well, if a disproportionate amount of apnay are from rural backgrounds, what does that mean in terms of overall educational levels then....... Plus I think there are cultural factors behind a lot of prominent rural castes having a strange attitude towards education/learning. If they can't make money off it, they don't see any value in it. I don't think pendus like reading either.
  9. Brother Sardar Jee, prayer in essence is just enabling conversation with our heavenly beloved Father Waheguru Akal Purukh. And the real prayer accodrding to Gurmat, is His simran. Just as a child calls his father, then the father comes running to the child, in a similar way, with our Simran, we are expressing our love, our devotion, and our dirty mind at His Lotus feet, in essence, we become mindless, and just as a lover forgets its identity in the presence of the beloved, so does the soul/surtee, with His simran, becomes mindless as said above, becomes pure, paviter, and ulimately merges in Him. Now, if instead of loving Him through the prem bhakti of His simran, we ask any other thing than Him from Him; for sure He will give it to us, but in it lies our failure, for we will endlessly keep running into the wheel of 84, in order to get our desires satisfied, this means more desires, and in consequence, strongly remain in the endless cycle of births and deaths. So brother, it is we who need to love Him through our prayer/simran, in order to please Him, and get the blessings of His apaar kirpa, to get ferried across this horrible mahabhavsagar of pain and agyanta. A baby without its mother even for a few seconds, starts crying because of misssing her from his/her sight. And so what about us? Have we ever cried for being away from Him since so long? Have we ever expressed our pain and agony of being away from Him? Most of the answers will be no for sure, because we are so much engrossed in the marketplace of maya, that we hardly have any time for Him. Yet, He never ever loses hope for us, for He wants us to recover our sight through practice of the teachings of Gurbani, which is nothing than: Ikoankar Satnam Satgur parsad Jap. Which means, there is only One creator Lord, who is found by the jap of the parsad Guru Sahiban gave us, and which is His Nao. So, the real prayer is the Simran of His holy Name. For in it, we call upon Him lovingly, and that is what pleases Him the most. SSA.

  13. THE STORY OF THE SOUL One day the Lord asked to see his favourite child. He told him that the time had come for the child to witness the world below in its fullness, and to experience the power of Supreme Grace. The child was curious for he had known nothing besides the light and love that filled his Father's home. As he imagined travelling the journey with his Father, the child became excited. Filled with anticipation, he asked, "When do we leave?" The Father smiled, "My child, you will need to make this journey without me; only then you will understand the Truth. Everything changed that instant for the child. What if he gets lost? When will he return? Who will look after him? With tears, he begged the Father not to send him away for he could not imagine a world without Him. The Father took him in his arms and lovingly explained, "Fear not. Nothing can ever separate us. Even if you forget me, I will not forget you. This journey is for your own spiritual progress and will be filled with many valuable lessons. I promise that my guiding hand will always be upon you throughout the journey. And when the time is right, I will send you a guide who will lead you back home to me; then, your happiness will have no bounds. The Ultimate Gift will be awaiting you." The obedient child looked into his Father's eyes and promised, "I will remember you with every step," And with those words, the child was born into the world. This may be just one of many imaginary stories illustrating our descent into this creation. It reflects the underlying message of all the saints that we were once residents of the Eternal Home in Sat Purush, and were sent down into this creation countless lifetimes ago. It serves to remind us of our relationship with the Lord and our separation from Him. But the true story of our soul is much more complex. Being born in this creation, rather than using the mind as an instrument of cognition, we became a slave of the mind and senses. Instead of learning the Truth (SATNAM) - our life's purpose - we became absorbed in the world, imprisoned by our desires and attachments. Life after life, with every action we accumulate a heavy load of karmas that bound us to this material world. Without doubt, the most regrettable and tragic part of our journey in this creation was forgetting the Eternal Promise to our Father : That we would remember Him at every stage of our journey. The Lord has fulfilled his promise. It is out of the Lord's boundless love for us that He puts us in touch with highly pure beings, like Guru Sahiban, Gurmukhs, Bhagat Jan, Mahaprukhs, Brahmgyani, Sant Jan, to take us back to our true home . And so the story of our soul continues. ...... If we listen to their words with attention, and earnestly put into practice the Nam bhakti as per the teachings troughout the Bani, not only will the journey be shorter, but we will be safe and secure in this turbulent ocean of existence. Our duty is to go forward unwaveringly and untiringly, so that we can invoke the Gift of Grace from the One who calls us unceasingly to return home. With practice, perseverance, faith, and above all, with Guru Jee´s loving grace, this journey, which is a blessed opportunity, will be completed one day. SSA.
