    I hope everyone is doing well. An experience happened a little while ago which I thought I might share. A few days ago something happened where I was wide awake but felt some of the experiences I've only felt during deep meditation. It started around 12 am and lasted until around 6 am. For the entire night I sat there, wide awake, just taking in everything that was happening. There was no boredom, no desire to do anything. But reality felt very joyful and an extreme emotional feeling of love took over. It felt as if extreme amounts of energy were pouring into the body (these feelings of love and energy happen regularly but that night it was at its peak). Vibrations were at full intensity all throughout the body. Ears blasting a deep tone sound. I didn't have time to sleep the next day so I ended up being awake for a total of 41 hours. There wasn't really any tiredness but I did eventually just put myself to sleep. I'm not sure if the lack of tiredness had to do with anything. It might just have been my body being used to not sleeping because of school. But overall, it was very indescribable. I'm curious to see if it ever happens again. Reading week is next week so I'll have a week off of school. The plan is to experiment around. Might try using that technique by Baba Isher Singh Ji that was posted in the Anhad Naad conversation.

    The Sri Sarbloh Granth.

    There seems to be some sort of a confusion on this forum regarding the Sri Sarbloh Granth. What is the Sri Sarbloh Granth? Historians and scholars evidence it as being the work of Akali-Nihung Guru Gobind Singh Ji, who formally sealed it at Nanded before his demise. The Sri Sarbloh Granth is an unique scripture in the fact that it is an extrapolation of the Chandi-Di-Vaar and the 24 avatars found in the Dasam Granth. How does the Sarbloh Granth differ from the other canons of the Khalsa? The Sri Sarbloh Granth differs from the other Khalsa canons, in the respect that it is profoundly figurative in it's approach to different spiritual matters orbiting the Khalsa ethos. It's opening stanza confirms this fact. It also provides citations evidencing the retaining of kesh and obeisance to the Guru Granth Sahib Ji. Is there any accepted steek or teeka of the Sarbloh Granth? Yes there is. The official Budha-Dal steek, formed by Akali-Nihung Santa Singh Ji, is based on the historic work of Udasi Harnam Dass or Akali-Nihung Nurang Singh. The latter individual created a full transliteration/exegesis of the Granth and deputed it to the Udasis in Punjab. They would later gift it to the Budha-Dal. This steek is available from Budha-Dal printers and any good bookstore in the Punjab. How is the Sarbloh Granth similar to the Dasam Granth? They follow the same principle. Both explore the battle between Abibek and Bibek. The avatars in the Sri Sarbloh Granth are profusely criticised for being paragons of both Abibek and Bibek. The Guru cites that only the individual who has mastered both, i.e. destroyed duality, can be truly called a Gurmukh. The avatars themselves were entrapped in the web of both Abibek and Bibek. Some quotes from the Sri Sarbloh Granth: ੴ One (advait - non-dual) Lord who is the light of all creation ਸ੍ਰੀ ਵਾਹਿਗੁਰੂ ਜੀ ਕੀ ਫਤਹ ॥ Victory to Sri Vahiguru ਸ੍ਰੀ ਭਵਾਨੀ ਜੀ ਸਹਾਇ ॥ May Bhavani be helpful ਸ੍ਰੀ ਮਾਯਾ ਲਛਮੀ ਜੀ ਸਹਾਇ ॥ May Maya Laxmi be helpful ਉਸਤਤਿ ਸ੍ਰੀ ਮਾਯਾ ਲਛਮੀ ਜੀ ਕੀ ॥ The Praise of Sri Maya Laxmi ਸ੍ਰੀ ਮੁਖਿਵਾਕਯ ਪਾਤਿਸ਼ਾਹੀ ੧੦ ॥ From the blessed mouth of the Tenth King ਦੋਹਿਰਾ ॥ ਛਾਯਾ ਰੂਪੀ ਹੇਇ ਕੈ, ਬਿਚਰਤ ਸ੍ਰੀ ਗੋਪਾਲ ॥ Taking the form of Maya (the great illusion, duality), Gopal (the preserver of Life) wanders within it (the creation) ਆਪਹਿ ਲਛਮੀ ਬਪੁ ਧਰੇ, ਜੀਉ ਜੰਤੁ ਪ੍ਰਤਿਪਾਲ ॥੧॥ For the protection of beings, He took the form of Sri Laxmi ਸ੍ਰੀ ਮਾਯਾ ਮੁਖਿ ਕਰੋ ਉਚਾਰ ॥ Recite, “Sri Maya”, from your mouth ਦਰਿਦ੍ਰ ਸਾਗਰ ਤੇ ਲੇਹੁ ਉਬਾਰਿ ॥੧॥ ਰਹਾਉ ॥ She protects the weak from the (dreadful) ocean ਦੋਹਿਰਾ ॥ ਆਦਿ ਭਵਾਨੀ ਈਸੁਰੀ, ਮਾਯਾ ਜਾ ਕੋ ਨਾਮ ॥ The Primordial Bhavani (Paida karn vali shakti*) the Creator, whose name is Maya ਇਨ ਬਿਨ ਸਰੈ ਨ ਏਕ ਛਿਨ, ਪੂਰਨ ਹੋਤ ਨ ਕਾਮ ॥੨॥ Nothing can be accomplished without Her protection not even for a moment. ਸੁਖਦਾਇਕ ਮੰਗਲਕਰਨ, ਪ੍ਰਤਿਪਾਲੇ ਬਹੁ ਭਾਂਤਿ ॥ The giver of happiness, giver of liberation, Her very nature is to take care of Her creation ਸੁਬੁਧਿਦੈਨ ਜੈ ਜੈ ਕਰਨਿ, ਮਾਯਾ ਸ੍ਰੀ ਜਗਮਾਤਿ ॥੩॥ Hail Hail to the One who gives awareness of the Self (aatma), Maya (Laxmi), the mother of the World. *According to the Budha Dal Steek on Sarbloh Granth Bhavani is not the ferocious form of Parbati (Shiva's consort) here but the creative energy of the universe, as employed by Akal Purakh. ਆਤਮ ਦਰਸੀ ਇੰਦ੍ਰਿਯ ਜਿਤ ਹੈ ਖਿੰਮਾ ਸੀਲ ਬ੍ਰਤ ਧਾਰੈ ॥ Recognize your true-self and conquer your [ten] sense organs, cultivate forgiveness, a docile demeanor and self control. ਊਠਤਿ ਬੈਠਤਿ ਮੋਹਿ ਚਿਤਾਰੇ, ਸੁਖ ਦੁਖ ਸਮਤ ਬਿਚਾਰੈ ॥ When standing or sitting remember Me and recognize pleasure and pain as one in the same. ਧੀਰਜਮਾਨ ਸੰਤੁਸ੍ਟ ਸਰਬ ਬਿਧਿ, ਮਨ ਸਕੇਲ ਸੰਸਾਰੇ ॥ Remain steadfast and content in all aspects [parvirti - worldly affairs, and nirvirti - spiritual affairs], and separate your mind from the grips of the world. ਸਾਛੀ ਹ੍ਵੈ ਬਿਚਰੇ ਸਭਿ ਸੰਗੇ, ਉਨਮਨਿ ਸਦ ਲਿਵ ਧਾਰੈ ॥12॥1666॥3985॥ Witness [Rām] in all and interact with everyone while constantly in the state of Indescribable Divine Bliss. - Sarbloh Granth, Volume II, pg. 671 ਸਰਬਲੋਹ ਗ੍ਰੰਥ, ਭਾਗ ਦੂਜਾ, ਪੰਨਾ 671 ੴ ਵਾਹਿਗੁਰੂ ਜੀ ਕੀ ਫਤਹ ॥ ਬਿਸਨੁਪਦ ਸੰਕਰ ਚਰਪਦ ਬ੍ਰਿਤਕੇਤੂ ॥ ਸੁਨਹੁ ਸੰਤ ਪ੍ਰਸੰਗ ਪੁਨੀਤਾ ॥ ਸ੍ਰੀ ਸਰਬਲੋਹ ਕੋ ਪਾਵਨ ਗੀਤਾ ॥ Listen oh Saints !

Asur [demons] Malech [invaders] can also refer to the Turks at the time who were destroyed by the Khalsa. ਧਰਮ ਪੰਥ ਖਾਲਸਾ ਪ੍ਰਚੁਰ-ਭਯੋ, ਸਤਿ ਸ਼ਿਵੰ ਪੁਨਯ ਰੂਪ ਜਏ ॥ The manifestation of Panth Khalsa's Dharam [was created], they are the form of truth, liberation and purity. *Akali Santha Singh Ji says that’s Khalsa pure is Sat Shivan Roop, which he says is the roop of Rab (Sat means that it refers to Nirankaar and not Shiv ji) *Many people say that is refers to how Khalsa is Sat Shiv Saroop, the true form of Shiv Ji ਕਛ, ਕੇਸ, ਕ੍ਰਿਪਾਨਨ ਮੁਦ੍ਰਿਤ, ਗੁਰ ਭਗਤਾ ਰਾਮਦਾਸ ਭਏ॥੫॥ Kach, Kesh, and Kirpan – these three signs made followers of the Guru the servants (also) of God *Akali Santha Singh Ji says that, RaamDaas in this shabad means someone who does Kirtan, so the three signs are kach kesh kirpan, and the followers of the Guru praise the Lord ਕਾਲ ਉਪਾਸਕ ਛਤ੍ਰਿਯ-ਧਰਮਾ, ਰਣ ਕਟਿ ਕਸਿ ਪ੍ਰਧਾਨ ਅਏ॥ Worshippers of Akal and followers of the Kshatriya way, wearing a waistband [kamarkasa] they are the supreme warriors. *Akali Santha Singh Ji translates the second part of this as; the Khalsa is the highest warrior ਤਾ ਮਹਿ ਪੰਥ-ਚਾਲਿਸ ਪ੍ਰਵਾਨਾ, ਪੰਚ ਪ੍ਰਧਾਨ ਖਾਲਸਹਿ ਠਏ ॥ From forty men, five leaders of the Khalsa emerged ਸ਼੍ਰੀ ਅਜੀਤ ਸਿੰਘ, ਜੁਝਾਰ ਸਿੰਘ, ਫਤਹ ਸਿੰਘ, ਜੋਰਾਵਰ ਸਿੰਘ ਪ੍ਰਿਏ ॥ They were the beloved Ajit Singh, Jujhar Singh, Fateh Singh, and Zorawar Singh ਪੰਚਮ ਖਾਲਸਹ ਸਤਿਗੁਰੁ ਪੂਰਾ ਜਿਨ ੲੇ ਪੰਥ ਸੁਪੰਥ ਪ੍ਰਟਗਏ ॥੬॥ The fifth leader of the Khalsa who completes the total was the Satguru (Gobind Singh), he who revealed this noble Panth ਚਾਲਿਸ ਨਰ ਏ ਬੀਜ ਖਾਲਸਹ, ਮੁਕਤੇ ਪਾਵਨ ਸਿੰਘ ਬਲੀ ॥ Forty men were the seed of the Khalsa, powerful Singhs who won liberation ਮਾਤ ਭਗਵਤੀ ਪਿਤਾ ਕਾਲ ਪੁਰੁਖ, ਗਦੋ ਲਿਯੋ ਦੈ ਖਾਲ ਪਲੀ ॥ Bhagavati was their mother, Akal Purakh their father, specially nurtured by them ਸਕਲ ਭਰਮ-ਪਰਹਰਿ-ਕਰਿ ਹਰਿਜਨ, ਸਤਿਨਾਮੁ ਸੁਚਿ ਮੰਤ੍ਰ ਬਲੀ ॥ Seperated from all illusion they became his people, repeating ‘Satinam’, that most powerful of mantras ਆਪੁ ਜਪਤਿ ਅਰੁ ਜਗਤ ਜਪਾਵਤਿ, ਭਗਤਿ ਸਿਰੋਮਨਿ ਮਾਹਿ ਕਲੀ ॥੭॥੧॥੩੧੪॥੮੪੬॥੩੧੬੫॥ਸਪ੍ਹਕ ੧॥ They chanted it themselves and taught all others to chant it.

Repeating Gods name is our constant conservation/activity ਗੁਨਾਨੁਵਾਦ ਪੁਨਿ ਸਿਫਤਿ ਸਲਾਹਨਿ, ਊਠਤੁ ਬੈਠਤੁ ਸੈਨ ਕਰੰਥਾ ॥ Singing kirtan became a religious rite and they became virtuous by praising God, whether standing or whether sitting ਪਾਵਨ ਪੰਥ ਖਾਲਸਹਿ ਪ੍ਰਗਟਯੋ, ਚਾਰ ਵਰਨ ਅਾਸ਼੍ਰਮ ਸੁਭ ਪੰਥਾ ॥੧॥ The pure Panth, which was the Khalsa came into being, that glorious Panth with four castes and four ashrams ਇਨ ਕੇ ਦਰਸ ਸਤਿਗੁਰੁ ਕੋ ਦਰਸਨ, ਬੋਲਨ ਗੁਰੂ ਸਬਦੁ ਗੁਰੁ ਗ੍ਰੰਥਾ ॥ To behold it is to behold the Satguru, (its members) repeat the Guru’s Word from the Guru Granth ਦ੍ਵਾਦਸਿ ਰੂਪ ਸਤਿਗੁਰੁ ਏ ਕਹਿਯਤਿ, ਦ੍ਵਾਦਸਿ-ਭਾਨੁ ਪ੍ਰਗਟ ਹਰਿ ਸੰਤਾ ॥ In twelve forms the Satguru appears, just as twelve rays of the sun reflect the light of God (Hari) ਪ੍ਰਤਯਖ ਕਲਾ ਪਾਰਬ੍ਰਹਮ ਧਣੀਛੈ, ਗ੍ਰੰਥਿ ਪੰਥ ਖਾਲਸ ਵਰਤੰਤਾ ॥ The visible power of God is manifested in the Khalsa as (the doctrine of the Guru) Granth and (that of the Guru) Panth ਦਾਸ ਗੋਬਿੰਦ ਫਤਹ ਸਤਿਗੁਰੂ ਕੀ, ਖਾਸ ਗ੍ਰੰਥ ਗੁਰੁ ਰੂਪ ਬਦੰਤਾ ॥੨॥ਦੁਪਦ ੧॥ Gobind is the servant of the victorious Satguru, he who reveals himself as the Khalsa and as the Guru Granth And many more.

The sword has cut open their skulls and blood flowed from their skeletons, like rivers. ਉਥਲ ਪੁਥਲ ਘਪਨ ਘਪਰੋਲ ਤਕਰੂਲੋ ਧੁੰਧ ਮਚਾਇ ਹੈ ॥ This sword created complete chaos and turned things upside down, the dust created in the battlefield has blinded all ਲੁਥ ਪਲੁਥ ਧਰਤੀ ਨਾਲ ਧੱਤ੍ਰ ਪਿੰਜਰ ਕੁਤਕ ਘਾਇ ਹੈ ॥ The earth is saturated with blood and skeletons are scattered all over the battle ground. ਲਪਟ ਝਪਟ ਲੈ ਤੇਗ ਨਾਲ ਰਣ ਸੂਰੋ ਘਾਨ ਘੜਾਇ ਹੈ ॥ The brave ones are jumping fiercely to strike the enemy down. ਖੱਚਕ ਖਫਨ ਜਹਾਂ ਜਮ ਧੜੇ ਰਣ ਲੁਥ ਪਲੁਥ ਖਪਾਇ ਹੈ ॥ The coffins, and messengers of death are devouring the dead in the battle field. ਰਕਤ ਪਲੇਟੀ ਜੋਗਨੀ ਰਣ ਦੁਰਜਨ ਖੇਤ ਖਪਾਇ ਹੈ ॥ The blood drenched sword is decimating the wicked in the field of the battle. ਰੁੰਡ ਮੁੰਡ ਘਮਸਾਨ ਖੇਤ ਰਣ ਜੰਭਕ ਗਿਰਝ ਅਘਾਇ ਹੈ ॥ There are body parts scattered all over the field, and jackals and vultures have arrived to feed upon them ਕੜ ਧੜ ਦੜ ਕੇ ਪੜੱਛਯਨ ਭਿੜ ਸੈਲ ਹੀ ਸੈਲ ਭਿੜਾਇ ਹੈ ॥ There are body parts scattered all over the field, and jackals and vultures have arrived to feed upon them. ਗਗਨ ਕੱੜਕੀ ਬਿਜਲੀ ਪ੍ਰਲੋ ਪ੍ਰਲੋਕ ਖਪਾਇ ਹੈ ॥ The sound of the sword striking left and right appears as if boulders are striking with each other ਉਤ ਧੂ ਲੋਕ ਮੁੰਡ ਮਚਾਇਨ ਬਹੁ ਮੁੰਡਕ ਮੁੰਡ ਭੜਾਇ ਹੈ ॥ The sound of sword striking is as if lightening is striking and day of Armageddon has reached close. ਥਰ ਹਰ ਕੰਪੈ ਧਰਮ ਰਾਇ ਰਣ ਸੂਰੇ ਘਾਣ ਘਤਾਇ ਹੈ ॥ The slain heads are hitting each other that is causing the Dharam Raja (King of angels of death) to tremble with fear. ਸਜੇ ਬੋਹਥ ਚਕਿਆ ਕਰ ਖੱਬੇ ਖੜਗ ਮਚਾਇ ਹੈ ॥ In left hand they hold the heads and with right hand they strike the sword. ਨਿਬੇੜਾ ਹਿੰਦੂ ਤੁਰਕ ਦਾ ਰੱਣ ਘਤਿ ਖੱੜਗ ਚੁਕਾਇ ਹੈ ॥ The conflict between the Hindus and Turks will be decided today only by divine sword in this battle of righteousness. ਜਗ ਅਰੰਭ ਤਿਹੁ ਜੁਗਰਣ ਮਾਸ ਮਨੁਖ ਘਤਾਇ ਹੈ ॥ This is how the beginning of the world witnessed the divine sword feeding upon flesh of the wicked. ਰਕਤ ਖੱਪਰ ਭਰ ਜੋਗਨੀ ਰਣ ਮਸਤ ਮੰਗਲ ਗੁਣ ਗਾਇ ਹੈ ॥ The divine sword drank the blood of the wicked by filling their skulls with it.This is how the holy sword was pleased and sang the divine song to celebrate death of wickedness from this earth ਕੇਸ ਬਿਨਾ ਸਿਰ ਕੁਟੀਐ ਚੰਘਿਾੜੇ ਕਵਨ ਛੁਡਾਇ ਹੈ ॥ Those who have no hair on their heads, when struck on bare heads cry in pain, and no one comes to their rescue ਹੁਕਮ ਮੰਨੇ ਪ੍ਰਭੁ ਬਖਸ਼ ਲੈ ਨਿਗੁਰਿਆ ਨੋ ਇਹ ਸਜਾਇ ਹੈ ॥ Those without a Guru are punished like this. However, those who submit to the divine will, are accepted with honour before God. ਫਤਹ ਜੰਗ ਗੋਬਿੰਦ ਸਿੰਘ ਦੱਲ ਕੋਟਕ ਕੋਟ ਖਪਾਇ ਹੈ ॥ I, Guru Gobind Singh ji, am always victorious in the battle field, and millions of drones of enemy armies are destroyed [by my sword] ਦੋਹਰਾ ॥ ਆਸਾ ਨਾ ਕਰ ਬ੍ਰਹਮਨਾ ਨਾ ਪਰਸੇ ਪਗ ਜਾਇ ॥ Do not put faith in Brahmins and do not touch their feet [in respect]. ਆਪ ਤ੍ਯਾਗਿ ਦੂਜੈ ਲਗੇ ਕੂੰਭਿ ਨਰਕ ਮਹਿ ਪਾਇ ॥੧॥ Forsaking your True Self [Atma] and praying to another [brahmins] you shall go to the worst hell.
