    Since you came to a SIKH forum, Daas has a suggestion for you. In Gurmat (Sikhism), Naam daan is given by Panj Pyare (Five Rehatvaan Gurmukhs). You (at your age of 18) can receive that and become a Sikh of Satguru Sri Guru Nanak Dev jee Maharaaj (who is the incarnation of the Almighty God). Then, if you do meditation with a pure heart (without vices)/love/devotion/concentration, etc, you will attain spiritual bliss in various forms and eventually merge with the Almighty God.

    Yes please continue doing meditation with whatsoever technique you're following. Do you see any harm in continuing meditation (exactly the same way you're doing)? Your efforts (meditation-without-guru or say without-naam-dhan or initiation, or baptism, or whatever name you prefer) will help you in the following way: - To keep away from bad karma/deeds. - To clean your mind. You can pour milk in a bowl only if the bowl is clean. So, do meditate, it will help you in direct/indirect way. Basically clean yourself internally. And the best thing is to do physical seva in Mandir/Gurdwara or in general of any needy, that would help to clean your older bad karma along with check to your ego. And continue meditation along with that. In other words, seva of humanity and meditation is a good recipe. Don't indulge in this-method-vs-that-method or mine-vs-there. That is the game of illusion. e.g if you're dying with thirst and someone offered you water; you don't ask if the person is from this creed or that creed. Meditation is the act of Selfless Love which is possible only with Faith. May be search for "Ishwar Puri" in youtube and that might help you on your path.

    Hello. I’m 18 now. I have been doing meditation for two weeks now, after watching Sandeep Maheshwari’s basic meditation video on YouTube. When I meditate, I listen to the high frequency type sound ringing in my ears, along with another sound that I can’t really describe. To relate to the best, it’s like the sound of rain. I follow Radha Soami Satsang Beas. Naam Daan is given to sangat older than 25 yrs of age. I was just wondering, should I continue doing meditation without naam daan? I’ve built an interest in spirituality in a short period of time and I’m confused now. Pls someone guide me.

    ਸਹਸ ਘਟਾ ਮਹਿ ਏਕੁ ਆਕਾਸੁ ॥ सहस घटा महि एकु आकासु ॥ Sahas gẖatā mėh ek ākās. The one sky is reflected in thousands of water jugs, ਘਟ ਫੂਟੇ ਤੇ ਓਹੀ ਪ੍ਰਗਾਸੁ ॥ घट फूटे ते ओही प्रगासु ॥ Gẖat fūte ṯe ohī pargās. but when the jugs are broken, only the sky remains. Stanza above also relates to all beings, One ekangkar/ikgonkar /atma/ jot is in all, reflected in all of us, creation, once ego/seperation subsides only Ekangkar/Ikongkar/Jot remains. In reality, there is no you or me, only vahiguru/ekangkar all in one, one in all. All we have to do is surrender, give it away to IkOngkar backdrop(universal awareness) in all of us. Ultimately, our body and mind is vahiguru/ikongkar property. More we spontenously realize this, less suffering in seperation and more in harmony and unity with IKongkar/Ekangkar-ONE UNIVERSAL AWARE BEING CURRENT.

    Sikhi does have physical Naam daan. There are two ways to acquire it. It is given by Panj Pyarey, when one becomes Baptized. It is implanted in the body in the form of a seed (beej roop). Then, it depends on the Sikh to do prema bhagti and convert that seed (along with the existing Amrit*) into a tree. The fruit of the tree is Brahamgyan (metaphorically speaking). Very subtle ego stays within the first six stages of Brahamgyan. At the 7th stage of Brahamgyan, the complete annihilation of ego takes place. Secondly, it can be given in the form of Gurparsaad by Gurmukh Brahamgyanis to suitable candidate(s), which happens very very rarely. Like for example, Baba Mahaharnam Singh jee Buchonwale gave it to Baba Nand Singh jee Kaleranwale. * - Naam/Amrit is also present within all human bodies. Bhul chuk maaf

    Exactly We get “Gur mantar” through 5 pyaare Naam is present in us. With Guru’s kirpa it becomes pargat. We cannot get NAAM from outside.

    So did I said something else? That’s what I said ego is there doesn’t matter if u do khulla pehra or chalisa. But some people bring ego within chalisa and says I did this many or he/she did this amount of paths or jaaps and with khulla they don’t judge.. It’s the intentions and how they do it and why they do it and for what they do it. It’s different for everyone.

    How counting or doing x amount of Jaap leads to ego.. I think ego can still overtake when u do khulla pehra. Why it’s always considered that chalisa is useless and its always said that it’s the ego of a person.. I think it’s the intentions that matters whether if rememberance is done under a specific amount of time or u do it unconditionally.. whatever u said is absolutely correct that it’s not us or me who does the Jaap but it’s the mindset of a person so I think we can’t say everyone who does is egotistic.. I still have ego and ego isn’t something that can be won over night for a sinner like me but These X amount of Jaaps can help in getting over haumai if done with true intentions.

    You need to refer to radhasoami camp for advice. I don't recommend you do your own pic n mix with guidance. What we try to discuss/advise on here, is as per gurmat. This gurmat is what we understand and interpret to the best of our knowledge. The major difference between gurmat and other schools like radhasoami is that they don't focus on "dhun". Dhun's origin is at the navel and we go upwards from there via heart/hirda chakra. If you don't do hirda stimulation/activation, then your pyaar is not parpatt or pakha. Guru Nanak ji showed us the beauty of "sift salah" and singing the gunn and bhajans of Nirankar. This is why kirtan has a huge role in sikhi. One can reach extreme heights thru love and heart meditation via kirtan praising alone. Radhasoami's don't follow this method and believe that they should start above the throat chakras. Whether this works or not, is not my concern, but it doesn't make sense to me. Also, gurmat doesn't have "naam daan" you mention. You have too keep your legs in one boat. If you try and cross the river with one leg in one boat and the other in an adjacent boat, soon enough, the boats will diverge away and no longer be flowing parallel. You will just sink in the middle because legs will be spread too far apart to get back in any boat.

    Bhen ji i heard in Gyani Thakur Singh's katha that it can be done half half 50/50 of 32 jaaps or malas. I don't have the link right now but its ok as he said it in his katha that Baba Harnam Singh Ji Rampurkhera Wale said its as they did 16 in morning 16 in evening.

    I am glad sangat like this kinda deep vichar. The way I understood regarding Atma. There is no difference between Atma and Chetan (Pure Being Awareness) and that in bhramgyan avastha one see chetna everywhere. Once ego or mind is lost nothing matters because nothing is all chetna / awareness

    and I would like to clarify this my own statement as I remember somewhere in some other post maybe I wrote it that why do nihangs do jhatkta and marijuana.. and now I mentioned this.. it’s because before I didn’t know that they use to go for horse riding and I completely forgot about some of them also do gatka practice so that’s why I wrote that before and now this.. and the reason I’m clarifying this beforehand is because there are some people who only look at the mistakes of a person and it has happened to me before and thn they start an argument over little things.

    These people aren't really interested in God to begin with, so shado pare. Those who have pyaar for Sikhi know the what, when, where.

    so what I mean is whatever their life style is (nihangs) and I know I shouldn’t be mentioning not all of the nihangs but those who does have a strict and hard kind of life style where they might need to use it (and I didn’t know there are some nihangs who does go for horse riding nowadays so thanks for telling me that) but because of that there’s so many people who do it I would say misuse it and say we are allowed that’s what I think is not right. But who can make them understand this.. those who actually want to get high on it (when they don’t need it) they just do it and justify it on the name of god. That’s what my whole point is I’m not saying why nihangs do it coz I havent lived their lifestyle but for people like me who has a normal life we don’t need to do it..

    I wasn’t comparing the two at all. I was just giving u an example like how desperate some of the youth are to get just high on something so they are going for cough syrups..

    Hanji we meet again i would like to tell u this now as u wrote this. Before my transformation and before like who I’m now and what kind of person I was before.. so I use to consume weed before and use to love it a lot so I know it’s effects.. and I can do it now as well but I just can’t do it anymore because there’s a voice that’s not letting me do it and we all know THAT VOICE can never be wrong.. now even I have valid reasons for doing it.. I can also take in a right quantity and do my simran.. right, but I just can’t do it anymore.. well that’s what I think and there are so many people who misuse it.. like people in India they even try to get high on cough syrups.. and yes there are other people who do it in a right way but those people are very rare.. and I really think those on spiritual path they actually really don’t need to do it..

    Thanks for this explanation and for ur time. But I don’t know why I can’t agree with this. I can understand the part where back in days Singh’s needed something to relieve their pains as they use to fight and do Jungs and whatever u mentioned that’s fine but that was something needed at THAT time.. but we don’t need all that at this present moment so just because it was used at those times people keep doing it today where they don’t even need it and thn they bring up with all these like u quoted and mentioned Guru Ji and shiv ji thn we just keep our mouth shut because obviously we don’t know the actual truth and don’t have the right knowledge about all this to speak against it.. And as u mentioned that it’s consumption helps focus more on gods true name This is something I can NEVER agree with.. what kind of remembrance that would be in which we need to take help of a drug, doesn’t matter if it’s natural or whatever.. it still is a drug.. And I don’t think it’s about narrow mindedness it’s about doing what’s right and going with a better option... yes I know it’s natural and more safer drug and it helps in making u feel relaxed but that doesn’t mean we HAVE TO do what they needed to do at those times.. thn I can get high on weed and I can say oh this is something my guru did and it’s shiv ji’s fav drug. That’s what my point is.. people when they don’t need to do it but still do it and thn they bring this thing that it was done by Singh’s at those times. Taken at a limited quantity only when needed is something I can understand but making it a ritual and saying its been done from that time is something I don’t seem to agree with.. I don’t know if anyone will understand my point or not. this is something I was reading about Shivji consuming weed and came across this. https://www.quora.com/Was-Lord-Shiva-using-marijuana-Bhang-or-other-drugs-If-he-is-a-god-would-he-need-drugs

    Bhen Ji i have found this katha link of Shehaadi Deg by Gyani Thakur Singh. But in another katha i did hear that Akal Ustat and Chandi Di Vaar should be read whilst making it. I will post that link if i see or find it.

    That’s ok when used as a med.. even nowadays it’s been used as a Med in a limited quantity like when prescribed by a doc.. I’m concerned about those who don’t need any medicine I mean physically healthy but still using it and they do it by taking vaheguru’s name. Like using it in degh and making shardayi and while making it they keep chanting vaheguru.. and I haven’t listened to the link yet.. forgive me for any mistakes
