    Sleep during meditation

    Baba Nand Singh ji was very high ' kamai' soul ofcourse, who had janms of Naam Dhan. His practices were more ' yogic' - we are not ' kinka' equivalent- so if we follow not sleeping for days ( years is obviously far unimaginable) we would loose some brain nerves or mental balance - for that matter. We can't even think of following his life style like shedding Maya totally ( he never touched money- left family- wore negligible clothes- even in super cold weather, ate nothing for days). This is like Dhanna ji or Namdev ji who took their elders words' literally and sat to ensure that Thakur would eat ( laavo bhog Har Rai) - similarly Baba Nand Singh ji took it literally that Gurmukhs never sleeps.. and Waheguru being ' bhaav Bhagat ka bhookha' got them across!! I wish we were also away from these ' chaturaaiyaa' and meet our Gopal with such 'bhole bhaav'...

    Sleep during meditation

    I still believe that you need rise above any body awareness yet mind stays awake. How to get there is the challenge.

    Going across Bhavsagar

    When the child at the time of birth comes out of the mother’s womb, the connection between the mind and the Creator at the umbilicus center gets severed. This end is called mool (the root). This forms one shore of the Bhavsagar. Gurbani says: mUl duAwrY bMiDAw bMDu ] At the root, the shore of Bhavsagar is controlled (like a dam). (SGGS 1159) The other shore of bhavsagar is located between the eyes (where there is an edge of sehaj sunn); the flow of vital air (pawan) keeps changing. On opening of the nine doors and vital air entering in through mouth. The mind then merges with the air. This spot forms the other shore of the Bhavsagar. shj guPw mih Awsxu bwiDAw ] After crossing the Bhavsagar, the mind sits in the cave of celestial bliss. (SGGS 370) The space between Dharan (belly button) and upper end of the Sukhmana channel is called Bhavsagar. duhw isirAw kw Awip suAwmI ] KylY ibgsY AMqrjwmI ] He Himself is the Master of both ends (Bhavsagar). He plays and He enjoys; He is the Inner-knower, of hearts. (SGGS 277) The Supreme Father maintains His subtle spiritual connection and union with the mind through the vital breath. So we have to engage in Waheguru (Guru’s shabad) Simran completely attuning and absorbing our consciousness in the vital air. Inhaling we have to chant ‘Wahe’ and listen attentively to the sound produced (dhun). When exhaling, chant ‘Guru’and listen to the sound with focused awareness. Thus chanting Gurmantra when inhaling and exhaling, wall of falsehood (between the mind and the supreme soul) will be demolished and the mind will cross over to the fourth dimension. (Chautha paad) Thus crossing the ocean of worldly desires, ambitions and craving (Bhavsagar). Rom Rom Simran: Consciousness manifests in every cell of the human body. It is this consciousness that yums (the minions of death) snatch out at the time of death. This results in agonizing pain. To escape this agony all manmukhs pray for mercy. But to escape Yums noose, we have to do rom rom Simran; so that, we can master the technique of withdrawing our consciousness from our cells and bring it back at will. In this way we can freely go to and come back from our Nij ghar (The Tenth Door, home of mind). This Simran (rom, rom Simran) is done only after one has become an adept in swaas, giraas technique (inhale, exhale method). In this method when surat (consciousness) has become attuned to the Shabad, breathing is briefly held and the sound of Gurmantra (Waheguru) is synchronized with the heartbeat. This will cause every cell to vibrate and resonate with the beat of the sound current of Gurmantra synchronized with the heartbeat. Gradually, every thing that one will come in contact with will seem to be chanting ‘Waheguru, Waheguru’in spontaneous and continuous stream of divine sound. This method of Simran is called ‘rom, rom simran.’ about this Gurbani says: gurmuiK roim roim hir iDAwvY The Gurmukh meditates on the Lord with every cell of his body. (SGGS 941) roim roim rivAw hir nwmu The Lord's Naam permeates each and every cell. (SGGS 1144)

    Confused about Kundalini /Rom Rom

    Satsriakal ji . I hope you find answers to help clear doubts Yes, we want to go upwards from mooldhara. There is a lot of dormant energy there and the idea is to direct it upwards. This technique is good also and makes sure that the "flow' is upwards. I've come across a few people that have successfully got to anhad using this technique...so give it a try and see how you get on. Personally, I used the saas graas "wahe" in and "guru" out technique. I wrote some detailed instructions some years ago on the meditation thread if you've come across it. Mooldhara- I'll give you my personal understanding from learning and experience. I don't recommend putting dhyian there, if anything, you could start with putting a little awareness on the navel as per saas graas instructions at first. This helps during first stages when the sevak is trying to build a repetitive maan-dhan habit for doing simran. Once you get going, then the dhyian should be on the dhun of gurmantar only whilst doing saas graas... Hope that clarifies a little.

    @Sat1176 @Lucky @BhagatSingh I remember years ago (and even months ago) I used to complain to you guys about how getting to dhoor and blasting the mind out of the body was such a difficulty. But I can successfully say that it's almost as if it's a walk in the park now. Did about 5-10 mins of chanting simran with a friend the other day (in a noisy public place) and the mind was ready for blast off. I still get stuck in that middle point where it feels like the minds about to launch (but never does). But even getting to this point never felt possible. I'm just working on cutting down the amount of time it takes. There was even a day where it was almost immediate. But I think it takes roughly 5 mins on average (down from 2-4 hours when I was stuck in my bubble). Btw: this was some solid advice which I can finally follow now. Almost 4 years later. But one thing to note: I'm starting to realize, these blasts may not be a journey outside of the body... perhaps they're a journey inward?

    Uniting Nirgun and Sargun in Sunn Samadhi is a very high spiritual stage. When an ordinary person is blessed with it, they are transformed into a Sat Hirda. This is what happens when our Ardas is heard in the Dargah and we are blessed with this GurParsaad. This is a GurParsaad of a very high order. When the Nirgun and Sargun become one in an ordinary person then a Puran Sant Hirda is born. When an ordinary Hirda is transformed into a Sat Hirda in all physical and divine senses, then a Puran Braham Gyani comes into existence in the world. When the Nirgun and Sargun becomes one inside a person moving on the Bandgi path, He completes His Bandgi and is blessed with Puran Braham Gyan and achieves the Param Padvi. Nirgun is the One who is beyond the three aspects of Maya and cannot be seen with the physical eyes. He can only be seen and experienced with the divine eye, Dib Drisht – Gyan Netter. Nirgun is the divine super infinite power that we call “Ik Oankaar Sat Naam Karta Purakh Nirbhao Nirvair Akal Murat Ajuni Saibhun(g).” Sargun is the One who is present in every creation and operates the creation. This is the divine power that runs every creation. In human beings it is the life element, it is the soul that runs the physical body. It is the divine power present in the form of Sat Sarovars as a part of the Suksham Dehi which is the soul. This divine power is responsible for making us breath and pumping our heart. It keeps all of the organs of the body functioning and the body alive. In the same way this divine infinite power is present in every creation and keeps the creation running and operating. This divine power keeps the fire contained in the wood. The same divine power keeps hydrogen and oxygen together and makes it water. However, these are two completely incompatible elements and cannot be stored together. One is highly combustible and the other one is a catalyst for fire, but they are held together in the form of water which sustains life. Nirgun and Sargun become one when we are blessed with this divine wisdom that our physical body, which is part of Sargun, has been created by the Nirgun and is being run by the Nirgun which is the Infinite Divine Power – Dhan Dhan Paar Braham Parmeshwar Ji. This divine wisdom is called the Puran Tat Gyan, Puran Braham Gyan. Just as our physical body, which is Sargun, is the creation of the Creator and is run by Akal Purakh’s Nirgun Infinite Divine Power, so in the same way, every creation is created by the Creator and also run by His Infinite Divine Power. The Infinite Divine Power that runs the individual creations, being present in individual creations, is called His Sargun Saroop. The Infinite Divine Power that is beyond the three aspects of Maya is called His Nirgun Saroop. When the barrier of Maya is removed, then there remains no difference between the two. Sargun and Nirgun become one within us and such a soul merges with the Nirgun Saroop and becomes one with God. It is the Divine Truth that when we go beyond the three aspects of Maya and defeat Maya and kill our Haumai, then we being Sargun become one with Nirgun. Then there remains no difference between Nirgun and Sargun. This means merger in God. Also, since every creation is run by this Sargun Infinite Divine Power, this is how Akal Purakh is omnipresent and runs the entire creation. When Nirgun and Sargun become one in a person moving on this divine path of Bandgi, then the mind, Hirda, soul and body is taken over by the Infinite Divine Power and that person goes into a state of complete silence. This is a state completely free of thoughts and is called Sunn Samadhi. This is the highest level of Simran because when this happens then the entire mind, Hirda, soul and body goes into Naam Simran and is absorbed in Amrit. When we go into Sunn Samadhi then we are unable to tell how much time has passed. There remains no effect of time and space. In fact, we go beyond time and space during that period when our mind, Hirda, soul and body goes into complete silence. This stage of Bandgi has been called Maha Parmarath in GurBani. “Sunn samaadh maha parmarath,” this means that Sunn Samadhi is the most rewarding state of mind, Hirda, soul and body. When we go into Sunn Samadhi then whatever may be happening physically around us does not register. We do not hear anything; we have no thoughts at all in our mind and our Hirda, soul and body are filled with Amrit – we are in a state of complete eternal bliss. In Sunn Samadhi, our mind, Hirda, soul and body enters into complete peace and wherever there is complete peace there is complete silence and God appears right there and then. Our Rom Rom vibrates with Naam. Every cell of our body enters into Naam Simran. Our body is filled with Amrit. All of our Sat Sarovars become enlightened and overflow with Amrit. All of our Bajjar Kapaats open, including the Dassam Duaar and we are blessed with Panch Shabad Anhad Naad music in our Dassam Duaar on a continuous basis. This stage of spirituality and divine bliss is basically, beyond description, it can only be experienced and cannot be explained. When Nirgun and Sargun become one then there is a complete takeover of our mind, Hirda, soul and body by the Infinite Divine Power and all of our senses and body come under the Puran Hukam of Akal Purakh Ji. Those who are blessed with the GurParsaad of Naam, Naam Simran, Naam Ki Kamai, Puran Bandgi and Seva, when focused on Naam Simran for long sessions go into Sunn Samadhi in a short period of time. The ones who dedicate and surrender themselves completely to the Guru with Tunn, Munn and Dhann are blessed with this stage of Bandgi very soon. Please keep in mind that your dedication and surrender at the Sat Charans of your Guru is not complete unless these actions are filled with trust, devotion and love for your Guru and also that there is no difference between the Guru and God. The ones who think that there is no difference between God and Guru are blessed with the GurParsaad of Sunn Samadhi very soon. The various stages of Naam Simran are explained with GurParsaad next. Please take some time to read this divine writing and to benefit from it. There are people whose life hae been totally transformed by Guru Daata Karta just by reading this divinely blessed writing. The Stages Of Naam Simran Ajapa Jaap is the spiritual condition of a person when Naam Simran goes on automatically in their Surat and then in their Hirda and so on as explained below. It means that Simran doesn’t stop at any moment day or night even whilst sleeping, talking, walking or eating. It carries on internally automatically and such a condition only comes with the GurKirpa and after a lot of Bhagti Kamai or can also be more easliy attained with the Kirpa of a Puran Braham Gyani. The normal sequence is as follows:- 1. Jaap (reciting) with the tongue (Rasna). This happens in Dharam Khand. 2. Jaap with the breath (Swaas). This happens in Gyan Khand and Saram Khand 3. Naam goes into your mind (Surat), into your thinking. It now becomes internal Simran and is no longer oral Jaap. This is a very good stage. This happens in Saram Khand and Karam Khand. Some people go into Samadhi at this stage. 4. Simran goes into the Hirda. This a much higher stage. This is where it goes on automatically and where the real Bhagti starts. One goes into Samadhi and Sunn Samadhi. This happens in Karam Khand. When you go into Samadhi the real Bhagti starts because your Bhagti account is opened in Dargah. 5. Simran travels to the Nabhi Chakra (navel area) and the Nabhi Kamal (lotus) blossoms. This is also in Karam Khand 6. Simran goes into the base of the spine area called the Mooladhaar Chakra and activates the Kundalini Shakti to rise up the spine. This is also in Karam Khand 7. Simran travels up through the spine to the brain area and back into the Surat where it completes the cycle. This is what the real Mala of Naam is. When this happens then the Gyan Netter and Dassam Duaar open and you form a permanent connection with Akal Purakh. You start to get the Braham Gyan directly from God. This happens in Sach Khand. The Anand (enjoyment) in Samadhi and Sunn Samadhi is beyond description. That is why the Maha Purakhs go into very deep meditation some time for days on end. You experience a lot of things during your Samadhi and Sunn Samadhi; see a lot of things; meet a lot of Sants and Gurus; see Param Jyot; have conversations with the Sants and Akal Purakh and even more that is beyond description. This is the stage when all of the divine doors, the Bajjar Kapaats are opened and there is a continuous flow of Amrit filling the body. 8. The Simran in Samadhi and Sunn Samadhi continues until Nirgun and Sargun become one. At this point Simran goes into Rom Rom, meaning that every bit of your body does Naam Simran. Your Suksham Dehi becomes as pure as gold. Your entire body is drenched with Naam Amrit all of the time. You become Braham Leen (absorbed in God) and reach the Atal Awastha. These stages are beyond description and GurBani explains it best, “Sat chit anand ghar hamare,” “Gurmukh rom rom har dhyae,” and “Sargun nirgun nirankaar sunn samadhi aap, apan kia nanka apan hi fir jaap.” One lives in Puran Parkash all of the time and listens to Ilahi Kirtan (divine inner Kirtan) all of the time. It is just an incredible experience. This is when one becomes Sat Ram Dass and is directed by the Almighty to serve the Sangat. This is what your target should be when you have been prompted to move on the Bhagti Marg. Just to illustrate how much more powerful one stage is than another, we can put it like this:- 1000 x Naam Jaap with the Rasna = 1 Naam Jaap with the Swaas. 1000 x Naam Jaap with the Swaas = 1 Naam Simran in the Surat. 1000 x Naam Simran in the Surat = 1 Naam Simran in the Hirda and beyond. Doing Simran in the Hirda and beyond is the most rewarding. Just doing Naam Simran once in the Hirda is 1000,000,0000 times more powerful than doing 1 Jaap with the Rasna.. Some people may think that we are getting into counting the benefit and it is correct to say that we should not indulge in counting how much Simran we have done as God is beyond calculations and it will just lead us into ego. However, this example is just a way to make the Sangat understand the differences between Jaap and Simran of Naam. The numbers above are not exact calculations, but just a way of saying that the rewards of doing Naam Simran in the Hirda are phenomenally higher than doing Jaap with the Rasna or Swaas. However, for beginners if you do Jaap with you Rasna, your Rasna will become Pavitter – holy. By doing Jaap along with your Swaas, your Swaas will become Pavitter. By doing Naam Simran in your Surat, your mind will become Pavitter. This is exactly what you need to do to make your mind Pavitter. This is how you will gain control over your mind, “Munn jeete jag jeet,” “Munn tu jyot saroop hai.” This is how you will be able to rise above the mental sicknesses of Panj Doots, Trishna, Nindya, Chugli, Bakhili, Raj, Joban, Dhann, Maal, Roop, Ras and Gandh. When Naam Simran goes into the Hirda it does so by itself under GurKirpa and makes the Hirda Pavitter. A Pavitter Hirda then becomes Maha Parupkari and Dana Dina, Nirbhao, Nirvair and so on. It begins absorbing all of Akal Purakh’s vital qualities and becomes a Puran Sant Hirda. It achieves Jivan Mukti which is the Param Padvi and receives the Braham Gyan direct from Braham. One does not become a Sant by wearing a Chola (white religious dress, symbols, long hair, turban, mala and so on) and following religious rituals and conducting religious ceremonies. The true definition of a Sant is the Hirda that becomes Puran Sachyara (completely full of Truth). The Hirda becomes a Sant when the Naam Rattan (jewel of Naam) goes into the Hirda and becomes the foundation stone. Please try to understand what a Sant truly is and pray to get the Naam Rattan planted into your Hirda too. After being planted in the Hirda the Naam goes into the Nabhi and spine and so on. All of this happens by itself under GurKirpa and not by our own efforts. It will only happen under Hukam. The higher state of Amrit is Naam Amrit and “Prabh ka simran sabh te uncha,” “Har simran me aap nirankaara,” “Kinka ek jis jee basave taki mahima gani naa aawe,” “Har ke naam samsr kichu naahin,” “Tudh baajh kudo kood,” “Eh dhan sancho howo bhagwant.” So please try to make your life cleaner by rising above the Panj Doots, killing your desires and not indulging in Nindya. Rise above all the doubts, Dubidha and Dharam Ke Bharams. Follow the Braham Gyan of GurBani in your daily lives. Become a Puran Sachyara, serve the Truth and achieve your goal of Jivan Mukti. You will make more progress on this path by following and living according to GurBani. Simran is the most important ingredient in GurBani. By living according to GurBani and doing more and more Simran, you become more and more Sachyara – full of Truth. Your Atmik Awastha (spiritual state) will keep on moving upwards through the five Khands and in Sach Khand you will reach Chad Di Klaa. This is a very high stage of spirituality. It is the completeness stage. It comes only after reaching the Atal Awastha. This is when the soul is always in the Nirlep Awastha meaning that it cannot be distracted or deviated no matter what is happening around you. Regardless of what is going on around you no doubts and Bharams come inside you regarding the Gur, Guru and GurBani. This is the highest stage of Bandgi. It is the Puran Braham Gyan stage; the Param Padvi stage; the Sach Khand stage when nothing can break you from the Gur, Guru and GurBani. This is when you have completely won over Maya. At this stage you:- · become single vision, · are unaffected by worldly Sukh or Dukh, · have no animosity with anybody, · feel no effect from your Ustat or Nindya, · are always absorbed in the Almighty, · are always doing good for others, · are not harming nor hurting anyone, · have won over the Panj Doots, desires and Maya. This state of Chad Di Klaa comes through Naam. The SatGuru’s prayed to God that if it is in God’s will, then Naam Chad Di Klaa be given to everyone in the whole world for their upliftment, “Nanak naam chad di klaa. Teray bhanay sarbatt da bhalla.” When you are in this state of Chad Di Klaa you also help others to reach it too. That is a Sant’s reason for being in this world. Returning to the meaning of this Astpadi, for the Guru all are same, each one of the Sangat is equal and has equal opportunity to be blessed with this GurParsaad, but our spiritual progress depends upon how much we give up at the Charan Sharan of the Guru. Our gains are according to our dedication, surrender, trust, devotion and love for the Guru. Many people complain that they are not able to focus on Naam Simran and that they cannot sit very long for Naam Simran. The basic reason for their inability to focus on Naam Simran is their lack of dedication, lack of complete surrender, lack of trust, lack of devotion and love for the Guru. Bandgi is very simple and easy – just give up everything at the Charan Sharan of the Guru and Guru will take care of the rest. We humbly request at the Charans of those who complain about very little or no spiritual progress despite them living a very religious life for a long time, to dedicate themselves at the Charan Sharan of the Guru in a practical way,. Giving Tunn means dedicating yourself to Seva with your physical body such as long sessions of Naam Simran. Giving Munn means literally following the words of the Guru and giving Dhann means giving one tenth of your earnings at the Charans of the Guru. All of this should be backed with trust, devotion and love for the Guru and if you do so then there is no negative power that is powerful enough to stop you from being blessed with the GurParsaad. Astpadi. jab akaar ih kachh na daristaytaa. paap Punn tab kah tay hotaa. jab Dhari aapan sunn samaaDh. tab bair biroDh kis sang kamaat. jab is ka baran chihan na jaapat. tab harakh sog kaho kiseh bi-aapat. jab aapan aap aap Paar Braham. tab Moh kahaa kis hovat bharam. aapan khayl aap varteejaa. nanak karnaihaar na doojaa. 1. Sunn Klaa is the highest divine power of Dhan Dhan Paar Braham Pita Parmeshwar Ji. It has been described in GurBani that the entire creation is created by the Creator using His Sunn Klaa. Sunn means complete silence, complete peace and Klaa means the divine power. The following GurParsaadi article describes this Salok by Dhan Dhan SatGuru Nanak Patshah Ji, “Sunn Klaa Aprampar Dhari.” This Divine Truth explained in the following article is that Dhan Dhan Paar Braham Pita Parmeshwar Ji was sitting Himself in Sunn Samadhi for a very long period of time before He created Himself and His Naam and then He created the creation. Complete silence and complete peace has therefore, been His Infinite Divine Power. The ones who go into this state of mind, Hirda, soul and body are blessed with the Infinite Divine Power which transforms them completely. Then for them, the Nirgun and Sargun becomes one when everything is taken over by the Infinite Divine Power. The person in this stage sees, feels and experiences the presence of this Infinite Divine Power in every creation and when this happens then there remains nothing else to know or do. The Omnipresent One is seen everywhere, everything is seen happening with this Infinite Divine Power, the logic ends, and Infinite Divine Power takes over. Sunn Klaa – God’s Highest Divine Power Of Complete Silence This article aims to give a glimpse of the Total Truth. Dhan Dhan Shri Paar Braham’s highest and most powerful divine status which is described by the following Shabads:– · Sunn Klaa: God’s highest divine power is that of complete silence. · Sarabh Klaa Bharpoor: God is full of all the super divine powers. · Aprampar: God is the self-created Creator who is Infinite, has no boundaries and has no dimensions. · Sarav Viapak:. God is omnipresent. · Agam Agochar: God cannot be seen or observed through the five senses. The Divine Eye, Dib Drisht, is required to see, hear and feel Him within. The entire creation has originated from the Sunn Klaa, this is God’s highest divine power of complete silence and complete stability. As well as being the highest divine power, Sunn Klaa is also the highest level of spiritual attainment. This is where the soul experiences perfect silence as there are absolutely no thoughts and no distractions in this state of complete stability. Sunn Klaa is the state that Dhan Dhan Shri Paar Braham Parmeshwar has remained in for countless Ages. This is the state in which He lives and this is where He can be realized. Any soul which reaches this level of complete silence achieves and realizes Him, that is also why GurBani says, “Sunn smaadh maha parmarath.” This is where the soul merges with the Almighty. This part of Infinity is Braham Himself. A merged soul is not distracted at all by Maya and completely stable. After complete realization the soul remains in this state permanently. This is where all of the spiritual and eternal powers come into a soul and then there remains no difference between such a soul and Paar Braham Himself. Such a soul becomes a:- · Puran Sant SatGuru, · Puran Braham Gyani, · The GurParsaadi Naam Amrit Ka Daata, · The GurParsaadi Naam Ka Beopari, · a living God on Earth, · “Nanak braham gyani aap parmeshwar,” · “Braham gyani mukt jugat jeea kaa data,” · “Braham gyani puran purakh vidhataa,” · “Banak sadh prabh bhed naa bhaaee,” · “Ram sant dohen ek hain.” Maaroo Mehulaa 1 Sunn klaa apranpaar dhhaaree. SGGS 1037-1038 In the Salok we are now discussing, God has been very kind upon us by giving us the Braham Gyan about this highest level of Eternity, spirituality and divinity known as Sunn Klaa. “Maaroo Mehulaa 1” means that Dhan Dhan Shri Paar Braham Parmeshwar has given us this Braham Gyan through Dhan Dhan Shri Guru Nanak Patshah Ji who Himself had achieved that level of Eternity. Let us try to understand it and bring these priceless jewels and diamonds inside us and by doing so learn the purpose of our human life and achieve salvation – Jivan Mukti. This power of complete silence, Sunn Klaa, is the highest eternal power of Eternity – Dhan Dhan Shri Paar Braham Parmeshwar. There is nothing above this Divine power where there is a complete silence and no distractions, complete stability. This is where Almighty resides and lives. This is where he remotely controls and executes His Hukam. Such a state of spirituality and eternal power is known as Sunn Klaa. This is where there is nothing less than complete silence. Such a state is also defined as Param Jyot Puran Parkash. This is also sometimes referenced as Braham Khand – the inner most part of Sach Khand where the Creator and only Doer resides. When a soul reaches the level of Bhagti where there is complete silence, complete freedom from thoughts and no distractions, then that soul has won over everything. That soul has won over the mind and Maya – Panj Doots and all desires. Such a soul becomes one with the Almighty. Then there remains no difference between Akal Purakh and such a soul. It becomes a Puran Sant SatGuru, a Puran Braham Gyani by virtue of this highest level of Eternal Power. Sunn klaa apranpaar dhhaaree. Aap niraalum apur apaaree. Aapae kudhurath kar kar dhaekhai sunnuhu sunn oupaaeidhaa 1. The self-created Creator who is Infinite, has no boundaries, has no dimensions, has been in existence even from the beginning of this universe, because He is the only Creator and the only Doer. All of His eternal and Divine powers are His own creations. The Creator creates the entire nature from Sunn Klaa – from the Eternal Power of complete silence, and then watches it with eternal happiness. This means that the entire nature – the entire universe, has originated and been created by the Creator from this eternal power of Sunn Klaa. Poun paanee sunnai thae saajae. Srisatt oupaae kaaeiaa gurr raajae. Agan paanee jeeo joth thumaaree sunnae kulaa rehaaeidhaa 2. Look at the wonders of the Sunn Klaa – the most wonderful life giving eternal entities air and water have also been born from the Sunn Klaa, “Pawan guru pani pita mata dharat mahatt.” Look at the importance of these two natural elements air and water, how divinely they have been gifted to us by the Almighty. These two elements are free and equally available to each and every soul, each and every creation of the nature. There would be no life without these two elements. With every breath the Pawan Guru goes inside us, and water is the father – Pani Pita. It is as pious and pure as the Almighty Himself. Look at the Earth, it is another life giving entity, without which we could not survive. This is the Dhan Dhan Divine wisdom of GurBani. Let us bring these Gyan Ke Moti (pearls of wisdom) inside us and make a Mala of these priceless diamonds and jewels in side us. This is the real Mala of Naam, of Braham, of the divine qualities of Braham. That is the real Mala and we should all earn this Mala. After the creation of these life giving divine gifts, the Creator created all the living beings like us and other species . The body of each creation is the fort for a soul. So He created a fort, a place for the soul to live. The creation of the human body is a place for our soul to live now and was created from five elements – air, water, fire, earth and sky (space/ether). The soul which is the Jyot of Braham, the infinite part of the Braham, the Nirlep undistracted part of the Braham, which is not effected by Maya, was instituted in this fort of the body. Sunnuhu brehumaa bisun mehaes oupaaeae. Sunnae vuruthae jug subaaeae. Eis pudh veechaarae so jun pooraa this mileeai bhurum chukaaeidhaa 3. Brahma, Mahesh (Shiva) and Vishnu are the Devtas which are worshipped instead of the Creator by some communities. But, even they were created by the Creator from the Sunn Klaa. Such is the Eternal Power of the Sunn Klaa that Dhan Dhan Shri Par Braham Parmeshwar has remained there for a countless number of Ages. Each Age is called a Yug, such as Sat Yug, Treta Yug, Dwapper Yug and now Kal Yug. Each Yug lasts countless years. The soul which earns this most powerful eternal blessing of Sunn Klaa, becomes complete in Himself. This means that soul gets Himself absorbed in the Almighty, becomes a Roop of Braham, the infinite part of the Braham. Anybody who comes in contact with such a highly eternally and spiritually blessed soul will become like Him too. Such a soul is also described as an Apras Aparas in GurBani. When we come into contact with such a soul we are eternally blessed by them and eventually become like them. In the company of such an Apras Aparas all the doubts in our mind vanish. Sunnuhu suputh surovur thhaapae. Jin saajae veechaarae aapae. Thith suth sar munooaa gurumukh naavai fir baahurr jon n paaeidhaa 4. The construction of the Sat Sarovars – the seven seas meaning the seven energy centres (chakras) in the Suksham Dehi (soul body) were also created by the Creator from the Sunn Klaa. The activation of these Amrit Sarovars can only be achieved through Sunn Samadhi. Let us talk a little bit more about these Sat Sarovars – seven seas of Amrit, which are created by the Creator inside our human body. These are the centers of divine powers and the source of Amrit inside our human body, they are present in:- 1. Trikuti – center of the forehead, which is also called the Gyan Netter, 2. the throat centre, 3. the Hirda Kamal, heart centre 4. the Nabhi Kamal, navel centre, 5. the sex organ centre, 6. the lower portion of spine which contains the Kundalini Shakti, and 7. the top of the head – Dassam Duaar. These are all activated by the divine and eternal blessings when the GurParsaadi Naam – Sat Naam goes into them. And when the cycle is completed starting from focusing the Surat in the Trikuti area, then the Naam travels down to the throat centre, the Hirda Kamal, then Nabhi Kamal, then to the sex organ centre and Kundalini and up through the spinal cord channels called Ida, Pingla and Sushmana and hits the Dassam Duaar and back into the Trikuti. When these Amrit Sarovars are enlightened, a continuous flow of Amrit starts in the entire body. This creates the real Naam Ki Mala and Ajapa Jaap all through this cycle. The activation of this Naam Ki Mala is a GurParsaadi game and happens only when we do GurParsaadi Naam Simran sitting in Sunn Samadhi. It happens by itself, not by our own efforts, but by the eternal blessings of Dhan Dhan Paar Braham Parmeshwar and the GurKirpa of such a soul who has realized this Sunn Klaa, a Puran Sant SatGuru, a Puran Braham Gyani. The soul who is able to activate these seven seas of Amrit becomes Jivan Mukt and such a soul is a Gurmukh soul. A Gurmukh soul means the soul who has completely surrendered Himself to the Guru and has taken His wisdom – GurMat, and left the DurMat and Sansarik Mat behind. Sunnuhu chundh sooruj gainaarae. This kee joth thribhuvun saarae. Sunnae alukh apaar niraalum sunnae thaarree laaeidhaa 5. The creation of the sun, moon and sky was also done by the Creator from the Sunn Klaa. There is His Jyot in all these entities too. The invincible and Infinite Braham remains self supported and doesn’t need any assistance in any form or in any way, is totally independent and unique and remains absorbed in Himself only. Sunnuhu dhhurath akaas oupaaeae. Bin thhunmaa raakhae such kul paaeae. Thribhuvun saaj maekhulee maaeiaa aap oupaae khupaaeidhaa 6. The Earth and sky are also created from His Infinite super powers of Sunn Klaa. All of these entities sun, moon, earth and sky remain in their respective positions without any support from any source, except Himself. The entire creation has been tied into the rope of Maya. This means that all of these material creations are run by Maya. The Sargun Saroop of Dhan Dhan Shri Paar Braham Parmeshwar remains under the jurisdiction of Maya. He is also the Creator of His Sargun Saroop and He is the destroyer of His Sargun Saroop. This means everything living in the Creation is perishable, only His Infinite portion is indestructible. That part is the Truth, the complete Truth and that is His own Nirgun Saroop. Sunnuhu khaanee sunnuhu baanee. Sunnuhu oupujee sunn sumaanee. Outhubhuj chuluth keeaa sir kuruthai bisumaadh subadh dhaekhaaeidhaa 7. All four sources of life Andaj, Jeyraj, Seytaj, Utpujh and their communication channels – e.g. their languages are also created by the Creator sitting in Sunn Klaa. The entire universe takes birth from Himself, the Origin and after destruction or perishing, or dying goes back to Him. The wonderful creation of the entire vegetation is also one of His wonderful actions. All these creations are born from the Sunn and when they are destroyed they go back to Sunn. All His creations are under His Hukam. Sunnuhu raath dhinus dhue keeeae. Oupath khupath sukhaa dhukh dheeeae. Sukh dhukh hee thae amur atheethaa gurumukh nij ghur paaeidhaa 8. The wonderful creation of day and night is also done by Him. He is the one who gives birth and death to the life. He is the one who gives the worldly happiness and sorrows in life – meaning that birth and death is also under His Hukam and our sorrows and happiness are also part of His creation. The cycle of life and death is also His creation. Basically, this is a part of His Sargun Saroop, which operates under Maya. Only a Gurmukh can overpower Maya and find His original home – which is the infinite part, Param Jyot Puran Parkash of the Almighty. Saam ved rig jajur athhurubun. Brahma mukh maya hai thre gun. Thaa kee keemath kehi n sukai ko thio bolae jio bolaaeidhaa.9. The four Vedas that were written by Brahma are the Rig Ved, Jajur Ved, Saam Ved and Arth Ved. These were written by Brahma under Hukam from Akal Purakh. This means that all this divine knowledge presented in the Vedas by Brahma came from the Almighty only. The three aspects of Maya were also produced by Akal Purakh. This means that Maya is also the creation of Dhan Dhan Akal Purakh Ji. Maya completely runs a normal person’s life. Only the Puran Sants are not under Maya, they always remain one with Akal Purakh and Maya serves them instead of directing them. Maya remains under the feet of such Puran Sants, Puran Braham Gyanis. There are three Gun (aspects) of Maya:- 1. Tamo Gun: Kaam, Krodh, Lobh, Moh, Ahankaar; duality; hatred. 2. Rajo Gun: Asa, Trishna and Mansha – desires. 3. Sato Gun: Daya – kindness; Santokh – contentment; Dharam – religion; Jat – control over lust; Sat – the Truth. The soul which concentrates and operates under the Sato Gun of Maya is eventually eternally blessed and gets involved in the GurParsaadi game, then does Puran Bhagti and breaks through all of the barriers of Maya, wins over Maya and goes back to the infinite part of Braham, becomes one with Braham. There is no price for Infinity. It cannot be bought, it can only be attained through pure, pious and unconditional love, sacrifice and service to Him. Then such a soul understands His Puran Hukam and speaks the complete Truth, sees the Truth, hears the Truth and serves the Truth. Sunnuhu suputh paathaal oupaaeae. Sunnuhu bhuvun rukhae liv laaeae. Aapae kaarun keeaa apurunpar subh thaero keeaa kumaaeidhaa.10. He is the Creator of all the Khand Brahmands (realms and worlds) are all His creation. All these things are then looked after by Him. He is the Origin and there is nothing beyond Him. He is Supreme and takes care of everything by Himself. Ruj thum suth kul thaeree shhaaeiaa. Junum murun houmai dhukh paaeiaa. Jis no kirupaa kurae har gurumukh gun chouthhai mukath kuraaeidhaa.11. The souls which are absorbed in Him remain in the infinite part of Him and the other creations remain under His control through Maya and its three aspects. Every thing is under His Hukam. The most serious mental sickness is the Haumai, which also is a part of the Maya’s Tamo Gun and is also created by Him. The entire cycle of life and death is due to Haumai, which is the deepest sickness. The person who is blessed eternally by Akal Purakh gets involved in the GurParsaadi game. He has completely surrendered Himself to a Puran Sant SatGuru, a Puran Braham Gyani who has broken all the barriers Himself. The Puran Sant SatGuru has won over the three properties of Maya completely. Such a Sant SatGuru takes your soul into the fourth stage – Karam Khand and eventually gets your soul relieved of Maya and gives you salvation – Jivan Mukti. Sunnuhu oupujae dhus avuthaaraa. Srisatt oupaae keeaa paasaaraa. Dhaev dhaanuv gun gundhhurub saajae sabh likhiaa kurum kumaaeidhaa.12. The ten Avtaars have also been born from the Almighty. There are ten such Bhagats, who are the Avatars of Dhan Dhan Paar Braham Parmeshwar in various Ages. He is also the Creator of Shiva, Devi-Devtas, but these entities were born to work and bring the rest of the souls closer to the Almighty. However all of these entities called themselves gods and started to get themselves worshipped and ignored the worship of Akal. All of these Devi-Devtas were and still are under Maya. None of them could break the barriers of Maya. These so called gods are responsible for their own condition due to their own deeds. There is only one way to win over the Maya and break out of the infinite loop of Maya and go back to the infinite part of Braham and that is the complete surrender to the Gur and Guru, to become a Gurmukh, to earn the Guru’s words and serve the Guru and to remain forever at the Charans of the Guru. Gurumukh sumujhai rog n hoee. Eih gur kee pourree jaanai jun koee. Jugeh jugunthar mukath puraaein so mukath bhaeiaa path paaeidhaa.13. The person who recognizes this infinite power of Infinity – the Sunn Klaa, cannot be effected by any of these mental sicknesses of Maya. However, rare are the souls who can understand this unlimited power of the Sunn Klaa. Throughout all Ages this path of following the Guru has been the way to achieve salvation. This path is the ladder of the GurParsaadi Naam Simran in Sunn Samadhi. Only this can bring the soul closer to Almighty. The soul first goes into Samadhi in Karam Khand and then into Sunn Samadhi. This is where the Almighty can be realized. The door to Sach Khand can be opened in Sunn Samadhi and the soul can enter Sach Khand. This is the highest level of Eternal Blessings – GurParsaad. This can only happen in the Gur Sangat of a Puran Sant SatGuru, a Puran Braham Gyani. Very rare are those souls who can understand this divine wisdom and follow it, but such souls who do are relieved of all the sicknesses of Maya and obtain respect in the Dargah of Dhan Dhan Paar Braham Parmeshwar. Punch thuth sunnuhu purugaasaa. Dhaeh sunjogee kurum abhiaasaa. Buraa bhulaa dhue musuthak leekhae paap punn beejaaeidhaa.14. The human body is made of the five elements as discussed earlier and this is all the creation of the Creator only. Our deeds, actions and reactions are recorded. If we sow bad, we reap bad. If we sow good, we reap good. This means that all of our sorrows are due to our bad deeds and all our happiness is due to our good deeds, so we should sow only good deeds. Why do you sow bad deeds when you know that you will have to reap your bad deeds yourself? This is why everyone’s fate is different, because everyone’s deeds are different. The souls who sow more good deeds and accumulate their good deeds to such a level where they are recognized by Braham Himself, are eternally blessed by Him. Oothum sathigur purukh niraalae. Subadh ruthae har ras muthuvaalae. Ridhh budhh sidhh giaan guroo thae paaeeai poorai bhaag milaaeidhaa.15. A Sant SatGuru is Puran which means that He has completely merged into the Almighty. He has won over Maya and has penetrated and absorbed Himself into the infinite part of the Almighty. Such souls remain absorbed in the GurParsaadi Naam Amrit of Dhan Dhan Paar Braham Parmeshwar. Only those souls who have the pre-ordained destiny – Bhaag, meet the Sangat and gain the eternal blessings of a Puran Sant SatGuru. They win over Maya and go back and merge into His Nirgun Saroop. The spiritual powers and divine wisdom comes only to such souls which remain absorbed in the Almighty. Eis mun maaeiaa ko naehu ghunaeraa. Koee boojhuhu giaanee kuruhu nibaeraa. Aasaa munusaa houmai sehusaa nur lobhee koorr kumaaeidhaa.16. Akal Purakh is addressing us all and urging us to understand this game of Maya, its three properties and its adverse affects on our daily life, the most sickening being the cycle of life and death, “Janam maran da rog.” However, this game of Maya can only be understood if we replace our own wisdom with the Guru’s wisdom. There is no other way because the Guru has achieved Infinity so only He can tell us how we can do it. If you don’t follow the GurMat then you will remain under the control of Maya and remain in suffering. The person who understands and obtains all of the divine qualities of the Almighty, gets absorbed in Him. This means you will have to bring inside you all of the divine qualities of Braham to be like Him. Only then will He absorb you into Himself. Sathigur thae paaeae veechaaraa. Sunn sumaadhh suchae ghur baaraa. Naanuk nirumul naadh subudh dhhun such raamai naam sumaaeidhaa.175.17. In summary, we cannot achieve salvation without Samadhi and Sunn Samadhi, which is a GurParsaadi game and comes to us only in Karam Khand and Sach Khand. We should all therefore try to understand its importance as discussed in the above divine wisdom and pray for getting the eternal blessings of the GurParsaadi Naam. Samadhi and Sunn Samadhi come to us only when we are involved in a GurParsaadi Gur Sangat of a Puran Sant SatGuru. This is because He is Amrit Kaa Daata, Naam Amrit Kaa Daata. Having His Sangat will bring us close to the Almighty and enable us to break the barriers of Maya, to win over Maya and to achieve Jivan Mukti. There is no other way to do it. You should all therefore watch your daily deeds, do Naam Simran, completely surrender yourself to the Charans of the Guru, then you will one day be blessed with the GurParsaad. Coming back to this Astpadi, there are many people who try to find logic behind everything, but fortunately or unfortunately there is no logic behind Divinity. As long as there is logic that is visible to the mankind it is called science, but as soon as the logic ends then the Infinite Divine Power takes over. Science is only very a small part of the entire game of Akal Purakh Ji. Therefore, those who go for logic remain trapped in logic, but the ones who become firm believers in this Infinite Divine Power are blessed with advancement in their spirituality. When this Infinite Divine Power takes over us, we are blessed with this divine sense that every creation exists and operates due to this Infinite Divine Power. We realise that the entire creation is all in One. Our individuality is eliminated, duality vanishes and everywhere and in everything God’s Infinite Divine Power is seen to be prevailing. Therefore, when there is no duality there remains no difference between Paap (sins) and Punn (virtues). This means that after reaching this level of spirituality all our Karams become Punn Karams. Paap is eliminated and Punn takes over completely. When there are both Paap and Punn, then that is living in duality. But, when Paap is eliminated then there is only Punn and that makes us Ik Drisht. This means that whatever the person at the level of spirituality does is for the benefit of the Sangat. Absolutely everything He does is for the benefit for others, even though under logical thinking we may not think so. The end of duality within us comes under the blessing of the Puran Braham Gyan and for a Puran Braham Gyani there is no difference between one person or another. He is Ik Drisht. For Him, the entire Sangat is the same. He is Nirvair as He has no animosity with anyone. His love for every creation is the same as His love for God because He sees the Infinite Divine Power in every creation. For Him God is prevailing in every creation, so what is good and what is bad? God is in every creation so it cannot be good or bad, it is the same everywhere and in every creation. For such a blessed soul, the Infinite Divine Power takes over everything else. The shape, size, color or creed, nationality, religion, caste and so on of a person has no meaning. God is God whether it is in a dog or in a person. God’s Infinite Divine Power is same whether it is in a tree or in an animal or in a person. When we search and go to the origin of everything then there comes a point where logic ends and Divinity takes over. Let us take an example of electricity. On the face of it electricity looks like an invention of the human brain. Look at all of theories behind it and texts about how it is generated and how it works. Science goes as far as saying that electricity is due to the electrons and protons. But, then we ask, “what is the force or power that creates the electrons and protons in the first place?” Then logic ends right there. Then we realize that the electrons and protons were already there. The power or energy was already there. The human brain has just discovered it. The human brain has just realized what was already there. This is why one of the famous laws of physics says that energy can neither be created nor destroyed. All of the energies and powers that we use in our daily life, whether it is gasoline that runs the car or the gas that cooks our food, were already here, created by the Creator. The human brain has just discovered them and brought them to use. An ordinary human brain is not capable of creating any completely new building block, but it has been blessed with the power to discover the creation and that is what it does. At the same time, when it tries to reach the origin of anything then its logic ultimately fails and that is where Divinity takes over. INFINITE DIVINE POWER TAKES OVER WHERE LOGIC ENDS. Looking for logic is Haumai, going beyond logic is Divinity. The entire creation is a play created by God, but at the same time the basis of this play is the Truth – Sat. The entire play is based on His Infinite Divine Power of silence and peace, Sunn Klaa. The one who goes into complete peace and silence becomes Sat and is the winner in His game. The one who is lost in the falsehood of Maya is the loser and continues to lose as long He stays under the influence of Maya. The winner is beyond Maya so is beyond the pains and sorrows inflicted by attachment. As long as there is attachment, Moh, there are sorrows and pains. The basic reason behind family relationships is Moh. Moh is nothing but the fear of losing worldly possessions, properties and relationships. This fear is due to attachment which is the root cause of all of the worldly pains and sorrows. When there is no attachment, there is no fear of losing and we become fearless. Only then there is no pain and sorrow left. Attachment is due to the illusion of false belongingness. The Truth is that everything we have been collecting or trying to save is all perishable and is all false. When the GurParsaad of the Infinite Divine Power takes over then all of these illusions are washed away and the divine wisdom – Puran Braham Gyan appears, which is again Infinite Divine Power. When all illusions and Dubidha end then the Infinite Divine Power takes over and this is the only thing that prevails, and what prevails is called Sat. Therefore, the entire creation is a play of Akal Purakh, only His Infinite Divine Powers prevail and there is no other power than His power. Jab hovat prabh kayval dhanee. Tab bandh mukat kaho kis ka-o ganee. Jab aykeh har agam apaar. Tab narak surag kaho ka-un a-utaar. Jab nirgun prabh sehaj subhaa-ay. Tab siv sakat kahhu kit thaa-ay. Jab aapeh aap apnee jot dharai. Tab kavan nidar kavan kat darai. Aapan chalit aap karnaihaar. Nanak thaakur agam apaar. 2. Dhan Dhan SatGur Sachey Patshah Ji is continuing to give us the Puran Braham Gyan about the spiritual status of a person who gets blessed with Sunn Samadhi and whose Nirgun and Sargun becomes one. Nirgun means beyond the three aspects of Maya. God is Nirgun and Formless. However as Sargun, He is Infinite Divine Power that is the Creator and Operator of the entire and every creation. The Infinite Being is Formless, but at the same time is also the Creator and Operator of all forms. Almost the entire human population operates under the three aspects of Maya. Only the ones who go beyond the three aspects of Maya are blessed with the GurParsaad of Nirgun and Sargun becoming one within them resulting in the Infinite Divine Power taking over them completely. At this stage there remain no shackles of Maya around them. There are no Bandhans (ties) with anything of Maya. There remains no attachment of any kind with anything. This means there is freedom. This freedom is called salvation. This freedom is available to every soul in this universe, but most people still choose to live the life of a slave of Maya. There is no treasure bigger or better than the Infinite Divine Power that is available to us in the form of this freedom, but most people chose to collect the scum of Maya. Does it make sense to stay drenched in the scum of Maya and ignore the infinite divine treasures? This Infinite Divine Power cannot be seen with the normal five senses of a human being. How can we see something which is infinite with limited means? Therefore, for seeing, experiencing and feeling this Infinite Divine Power we have to be blessed with the divine power and this divine power is available to those who go into Sunn Samadhi and whose Nirgun and Sargun becomes one. Then there is a complete merger with Akal Purakh and we become an inseparable part of the Mansarovar – Gur Sagar, Omnipresent, then heaven or hell doesn’t mean anything. This is a Divine Truth that the Dargah (Realm of Truth, God’s Court) is above heaven (realm of the Devi-Devtas, gods and goddesses). So, when we earn a place in Dargah then what else is lacking? Dargah is above everything else. All of the Devi-Devtas are all below Dargah. Even Lord Shiva is below the Dargah of Akal Purakh. This is a Divine Truth that this divine power of reaching the Dargah is available only and only to the human beings. This divine power is not available to any Devi-Devtas. That is why all of them long for birth in human life. Only then can they reach Dargah. Therefore, those who are blessed with Sunn Samadhi and for whom Sargun and Nirgun becomes one are above the Devi-Devtas. We have been born in this human life with the divine Jyot inside us and this divine Jyot is the Infinite Divine Power. Our body is being run by this Jyot and this Jyot has been placed by God Himself inside our Hirda. When we are born we are free, then, why would we chose to live as a slave of Maya? It is a Divine Truth that when a child is born, all his Bajjar Kapaats are open. All of his Sat Sarovars are enlightened and Dassam Duaar is open. The body of a new born is filled with Amrit. But, as the child grows, he tastes Maya and starts to like Maya due to the influence of Maya on the family and slowly becomes a slave of Maya himself. If this new born child can be kept away from the influence of Maya then as he grows he will become a Puran Braham Gyani for sure. However, it is practically very difficult to keep a child away from the influence of Maya, but at least parents can themselves focus on Sat Ki Karni so that the child will also engage in Sat Ki Karni and Maya will have minimal effect. As he grows it will be easier for Him to focus on Naam, Naam Simran and Naam Ki Kamai. By playing Kirtan close to a new born and as they grow up focusing them on Naam Simran, Naam Ki Kamai and Bandgi will help them to stay close to God. Those who are blessed with the GurParsaad of Sunn Samadhi, whose Nirgun and Sargun becomes one, are blessed with Sehaj Subhaa. This means that they are also blessed with Sehaj Samadhi. Sehaj Samadhi is a continuous Samadhi, never ending, forever. However, this is all His game, it is a GurParsaadi play. This GurParsaad is available to us as a new born child. If saved and focused on we can make our spiritual dreams come true. This GurParsaad is available to us on a continuous basis, all we have to do is to go to the source of this GurParsaad and give up everything to Him with complete surrender and with trust, devotion and love. With this eternal blessing our Nirgun and Sargun will become one and we will go into Sunn Samadhi and then the Infinite Divine Power will take over everything and we will forever become one with this Infinite Divine Power. When that happens then everything else will be meaningless for us as there is nothing bigger and better than this Infinite Divine Power. There is no place better than the Dargah. Abhinaasee sukh aapan aasan. Tah janam maran kaho kahaa binaasan. Jab puran kartaa prabh so-ay. Tab jam kee taraas kahhu kis ho-ay. Jab abigat agochar prabh aykaa. Tab chitar gupat kis poochhat laykhaa. Jab naath niranjan agochar agaadhay. Tab ka-un chhutay ka-un bandhan baadhay. Aapan aap aap hee acharjaa. Nanak aapan roop aap hee uparjaa. 3. Dhan Dhan SatGur Sachey Pancham Patshah Ji is very kindly continuing to give us the divine wisdom about the Mahima of the GurParsaad of Nirgun, Sargun and Sunn Samadhi in these divine words. This divine GurParsaad’s Mahima is beyond description, but here is a glimpse of some of the divine treasures that this GurParsaad brings us:- · immortality, · Sehaj Samadhi, · Sada Sukh – never ending eternal happiness, · merger in the Abhinaasee meaning nothing will be able to destroy us, · freedom from the cycle of death and birth, · the state of Puran Purakh, · out of drinking the poison of Maya and instead filling with Amrit, · the Puran Braham Gyan, the blessing of divine wisdom allowing us to understand the divine qualities of the Almighty, · realization that it is His Infinite Divine Power that makes everything happen around us and everywhere, · the divine sense by opening our divine eye. God is beyond the normal five senses of human being, but with the divine eye we are able to see, feel and experience Him, · clearance from the effect of all of our Karni not only from this life, but from all previous lives, · salvation. When the Infinite Divine Power takes over everything for us then we realize that there is only one Naath. This means that God is the owner of everything. He is the Master of everything. He is Niranjan meaning that He is beyond the darkness of Maya. He is beyond the three aspects of Maya. He is Agochar meaning that He is incomprehensible with the normal five senses and only the divine sense can recognize and realize Him. He is Agaadh meaning He is the Infinite Divine Power that is Omnipresent and only He could create Himself. Only He could create the entire creation. Only He could run this entire creation. Being Infinite He has no form. How can the Infinite be defined in measurable terms? So that makes Him Formless. Nirankaar means formless. Being Infinite means He is Formless. Oankaar means formless and only He Himself could make Himself formless or infinite. The Infinite One has no ties, no boundaries, and no attachment. Therefore, when this Infinite Divine Power is realized and when this Infinite Divine Power takes completely over us then what else remains to be achieved? Nothing. All that remains is this Infinite Divine Power and this Infinite Divine Power is the One which prevails forever for all times. Jah nirmal purakh purakh pat hotaa. Tah bin mail kahhu ki-aa dhotaa. Jah niranjan nirankaar nirbaan. Tah ka-un ka-o maan ka-un abhimaan. Jah saroop kayval jagdees. Tah chhal chhidar lagat kaho kees. Jah jot saroopee jot sang samaavai. Tah kiseh bhookh kavan tariptaavai. Karan karaavan karnaihaar. Nanak kartay ka naahi sumaar. 4. When our Nirgun and Sargun becomes one and our mind, Hirda, soul and body goes into complete silence, then there is only one Infinite Divine Power that remains and prevails. That Infinite Divine Power has been called Nirmal Purakh, the Master of all beings; the Immaculate Being; the One which was, which is and which will remain so and which is the Eternal Truth. Everything else is perishable. When this Infinite Divine Power is realized then:- · our mind, Hirda, soul and body is completely cleansed. · All of our sins from this life and all previous lives are washed away instantaneously. · The effect of all of our good or bad deeds from this life and all previous lives is washed away. · We are completely cleansed from inside out. The inside and outside become the same. · Our Hirda is filled with divine Param Jyot Puran Parkash. · Our Hirda is filled with all of the infinite divine qualities. · Our mind is replaced by Param Jyot. · Our soul becomes completely weightless. It was carrying the weight of all of our deeds from this life and all previous lives we have been through. · Our Suksham Dehi becomes Kanchan Dehi. · Merger happens with Niranjan – the One who is beyond three aspects of Maya. · Merger happens with Nirankaar – the One who is formless being infinite and Omnipresent. · Merger happens with Nirbaan – the One who is beyond death and birth, is always Mukt, the one who rules over Maya, the one who rules over everything, the king of kings; · We eliminate from inside us the Maan (honour) Abhimaan (dishonour) – the ego, Ahankaar, Haumai and our individuality will be killed and the Infinite Divine Power will prevail over everything. There is only one Jagdees, meaning the One who is the · Creator, · Doer, · Giver of life, · Prevailer in the form of divine power in every creation, · infinite Divine Light that keeps the entire universe running. When this Infinite Divine Power is inside us and is keeping us operating, when this Infinite Divine Power is present everywhere, then who are you deceiving or cheating or being fraudulent with? When you cheat, deceive or do any kind of fraud you are doing it to this Infinite Divine Power. You are not doing it to anybody else, but to God Himself. So please think for a second, are you so crazy that you will try to cheat, deceive or do fraud with God? By cheating, deceiving or doing fraud you are only hurting yourself. But, when our Nirgun and Sargun becomes one and the Infinite Divine Power takes over, then we are saved from cheating, deceiving, or being fraudulent to anybody anywhere. This Infinite Divine Power is the Jyot inside us which gives life to our body, which runs our heart, which runs our breathing process, which is running the blood inside our body. When Nirgun and Sargun becomes one for us then this Jyot inside us becomes one with the Param Jyot and loses its false identity and becomes Param Jyot. When this happens then there remains nothing else to be achieved. The thirst for the Eternal Truth is quenched. Even the hunger for the Darshans of Akal Purakh disappear. Contentment takes over. All desires are fulfilled. Everything becomes complete by merging in the Infinite Divine Power. Everything happens and every creation operates in accordance with the divine laws framed by this Infinite Divine Power of Dhan Dhan Paar Braham Pita Parmeshwar Ji. He is this Infinite Divine Power and this Infinite Divine Power prevails everywhere and in every creation. The entire creation runs under His command – Hukam and nobody can judge or measure His Infinite Divine Power. This is called complete realization and is available only to those who are blessed with the GurParsaad of this Infinite Divine Power. Jab apnee sobhaa aapan sang banaa-ee. Tab kavan maa-ay baap mitar sut bhaa-ee. Jah sarabh klaa aapeh parbeen. Tah bayd katayb kahaa ko-oo cheen. Jab aapan aap aap ur dhaarai. Ta-o sagan apasgan kahaa beechaarai. Jah aapan ooch aapan aap nayraa. Tah ka-un thaakur ka-un kahee-ai chayraa. Bisman bisam rahay bismaad. Nanak apnee Gat jaanhu aap. 5. This Infinite Divine Power is the divine grace and divine glory that comes with the GurParsaad of Nirgun and Sargun becoming one forever. The GurParsaad of divine glory is blessed when the Infinite Divine Power takes over everything else and there remain no other relationships except this divine relationship with God. When this divine relationship with Divine Truth comes into existence, then all of the worldly and family relationships become false. Then we are blessed with this divine wisdom which makes us realize that all of the family relationships are false. The real and truthful relationship is this divine relationship with the Divine Truth. This divine relationship is the relationship of Naam – Sat Naam. All of the glory and grace that we are blessed with is due to this Infinite Divine Power of God due to our merger in Him. All of the divine powers are hidden in this Divine Truth, the Infinite Divine Power. All of the Ridhis and Sidhis live at the Charans of this Infinite Divine Power, because this Infinite Divine Power is the Creator of the Ridhis and Sidhis as well. This infinite divine relationship is not achieved by reading any books or Vedas. Neither can this divine relationship be achieved just by reading or hearing GurBani. The only way that this divine relationship can be achieved is by doing what GurBani is telling us to do. Doing GurBani is the key to success and not merely reading or hearing GurBani. Therefore, please focus efforts in doing GurBani and not merely reading on a daily basis. When we start doing GurBani then we practically realize what GurBani says and our spiritual progress goes on to the fast track. When this Infinite Divine Power is everything and our Hirda gets filled with this divine Amrit, then there remain no good or bad omens. Every moment belongs to this Infinite Divine Power then there remain no illusions or delusions of any good or bad omens. Good or bad omens are just illusions and delusions, Bharams, that put us into Dubidha and nothing else. End of Bharams – illusions and delusions is Bandgi and brings merger with the Gur and Guru. Living a life full of illusions is the one of the main reasons for no spiritual progress. The illusions are raised in our mind while living under self wisdom and worldly wisdom, but when the Infinite Divine Power takes over us, we are blessed with divine wisdom and this divine wisdom washes away all of the illusions. Merger in this Infinite Divine Power makes us one with God, so there remains no Guru and no disciple, since Guru and the disciple are the same Infinite Divine Power then the Guru and disciple become one. This is why GurBani has called a Puran Braham Gyani, “Braham gyani aap nirankaraa,” “Braham gyani aap parmeshwar,” “Braham gyani mukt jugat jea ka daata,” and “Braham gyani puran purakh vidhataa.” GurBani also calls SatGuru a Bohithaa which means SatGur is a Ship which ferries us across this Bhavsagar to the Dargah. When we are ferried across and are given a place in the Dargah then there remains no difference between the Guru and us. There remains no difference between the Thakur – God and us. Looking at this GurParsaadi divine quality of God which renders all His divine powers upon us when we become one with Him, it leaves us feeling wonder struck. This wonderful divine quality of Paar Braham Param Pita Parmeshwar Ji leaves us feeling wonderstruck. This is the height of His kindness that He makes us like Him and gives us all of His divine powers. Therefore, only God knows what He does and how He does it. With His Infinite Divine Powers His capabilities cannot be and should not be challenged as He can do anything beyond the imagination of an ordinary person. Only He knows His own divine powers and nobody else can know all of His capabilities and divine powers. That is why His Mahima is beyond description, nobody has been able to know Him completely and describe Him completely and nobody will ever be able to do so. That is why He is called Agam, Agochar, Agaadh, Aprampar, Anant, Beant and by many such names. We can only make our life worthwhile by focusing on achieving this GurParsaad. Jah achhal achhayd abhayd samaa-i-aa. Ohaa kiseh bi-aapat maa-i-aa. Aapas ka-o aapeh aadays. Tihu gun ka naahee parvays. Jah aykeh ayk ayk bhagvantaa. Tah ka-un achint kis laagai chintaa. Jah aapan aap aap patee-aaraa. Tah ka-un kathai ka-un sunnaihaaraa. Baho bay-ant ooch tay oochaa. Nanak aapas ka-o aapeh pahoochaa. 6. SatGur Sachey Pancham Patshah Ji is very kindly continuing to tell us what happens to those souls who are blessed with the GurParsaad of this Infinite Divine Power when their Nirgun and Sargun becomes one and they are blessed with Sunn Samadhi and all of the infinite divine treasures as a part of this GurParsaad. Everything is changing on a continuous basis. Every creation is changing at every moment. If we look at our self we will notice that we are constantly changing. With every moment that passes our life is changing, our body is changing, even our skin is changing on a continuous basis. This is called the aging process. Everything else around us is changing and moving towards its physical end. Anything that is born or created in time and space has to meet its end one day. There is only one thing that is beyond this process of change. There is only one thing that has no effect of time and space. This Infinite Divine Power is beyond Maya and this One thing is Divinity – the Infinite Divine Power – Dhan Dhan Paar Braham Pita Parmeshwar Ji. That is why this Infinite Divine Power is called, “Achal, Achhayd, Abhayd.” This Infinite Divine Power has created Himself. This Infinite Divine Power has created the entire creation. This Infinite Divine Power has created all of the divine laws. This Infinite Divine Power is unique and is the One that kept Himself beyond the process of change. That is why it is called Sat. That is why His Name is Sat Naam. This never changing status of this Infinite Divine Power has been explained as “Achal, Achhayd, Abhayd,” by SatGur Pancham Patshah Ji. Those souls which are absorbed in this Infinite Divine Power also become “Achal, Achhayd, Abhayd,” like Him and go beyond Maya. This is also called Atal Awastha in Puran Bandgi process when we go beyond Maya by defeating Maya as a part of our Puran Bandgi process. We cannot be disturbed by Maya any more. We are unshaken by anything or any circumstances. We cannot be deceived by Maya any more. Winning over Maya is winning over the Panj Doots and desires. Maya then becomes our servant. Panj Doots then leave our body and live under our Charans. No more drinking this poison and this poison is replaced by the GurParsaad of Amrit. Our Hirda goes into full and complete contentment and all of our desires are fulfilled. This means no more desires, no more burning in the fire of desires. Going beyond Maya means going beyond three aspects of Maya and merging with this Infinite Divine Power – Dhan Dhan Paar Braham Pita Parmeshwar Ji. When Bandgi reaches this merger stage this Infinite Divine Power takes over. Our Bandgi is recognized and blessed as Puran Bandgi by Dhan Dhan Paar Braham Pita Parmeshwar Ji then we perform Namaskaar to our self. When we get a Hukam from within to perform Namaskaar to our self, it means our Bandgi is complete. Our Rom Rom has been blessed with Amrit, we have physically gone into Rom Rom Naam Simran. Our entire body is filled with Amrit, all of our Sat Sarovars have filled up with Amrit. There are various spiritual things that happen when our Bandgi is blessed and accepted as complete. People get different kinds of visions and spiritual experiences. Performing a Namaskaar to yourself means you have completely realized God within yourself and you are performing Namaskaar to the Infinite Divine Power that is running your body. Some Bhagat’s when sitting in Samadhi find their forehead goes and touches their own feet by itself. This is the stage that is called, “Aapas ka-o aapeh aadays.” When we are blessed with this divine GurParsaad then basically, we have gone beyond the three aspects of Maya into Atal Awastha. This means we have defeated Maya, this means that we have defeated Panj Doots and all of our spiritual desires have been fulfilled. This means we have become desire free and our Hirda has gone into complete contentment. This is the stage when the Infinite Divine Power takes over completely and all of our worries and anxiety disappears. Until this happens there is a feeling of uncertainty that keeps bothering us. Thinking about past and future is the reason for this feeling of insecurity and uncertainty. Worries and anxiety are due to this feeling of uncertainty that keeps us gripped. But, when the Infinite Divine Power takes over then everything appears exactly the way it is and all of our illusions, worries and anxiety disappear and we are blessed with a divine feeling of satisfaction, contentment, bliss, happiness, joy, and we feel filled up with a feeling that the entire creation is our family. This divine experience is unique and when we go into completely thought free stage, when our mind, Hirda, soul and body goes into complete silence, then there is nothing that remains to be asked or told, then the complete silence tells the story. The complete silence means no disturbance to mind, Hirda, soul and body. This is the height of eternal bliss and divine happiness so what else remains to be told or listened. This GurParsaad of Infinite Divine Power is the highest of the highest divine power and there is nothing beyond this Infinite Divine Power and only this Infinite Divine Power has the capability to take us to this Infinite Divine Power. There is no other way that will take us to this Infinite Divine Power. We can only reach this Infinite Divine Power by losing our own individuality. When individuality is lost then the Infinite Divine Power is completely realized and merges us into Himself. Just as a drop of rain goes back to the ocean and loses its identity and individuality and becomes the sea, in the same way losing our identity and individuality we are blessed with this GurParsaad of merging into this Infinite Divine Power. Jah aap rachi-o parpanch akaar. Tihu gun meh keeno bisthaar. Paap punn tah bha-ee kahaavat. Ko-oo narak ko-oo surag banchhaavat. Aal jaal maa-i-aa janjaal. Ha-umai moh bharam bhai bhaar. Dookh sookh maan apmaan. Anik parkaar kee-o bakh-yaan. Aapan khayl aap kar daykhai. Khayl sankochai ta-o nanak aykai. 7. That part of the creation which is visible to the naked eye is nothing but Maya. Any creation that has shape, dimensions, and color is nothing but Maya. This way the entire world that is visible to an ordinary person is all just Maya and is operated under the three aspects of Maya. The three aspects of Maya are the rulers of the entire creation that is visible to us. This is the divine Khel. The game that has been created by the Infinite Divine Power, which we call God, Akal Purakh or Paar Braham Parmeshwar. Maya is His creation too and Maya operates under the divine laws of His court which is called the Dargah. Just focus on yourself for a few minutes and the world around you. The entire world is so attractive that people get lost in the world. Some are lost in family relationships. Some are lost in the collection of properties and money. Some are lost in earning name and fame in society. Some are lost in their profession and in acquiring professional expertise that will bring them prootions and power. The bottom line is that everyone has their own priorities and to fulfill them they are working day and night. But, in this pursuit they have been completely taken over by Maya and have not noticed the effect of this upon them in the real divine sense. If you analyze your activities you will find that they all fall under one of the three aspects of Maya. That is why this world has been called the Bhavsagar. It is like a large pool of water that has diamonds and jewels sitting at the bottom which people are busy collecting. Many times people have to face many obstacles in reaching these treasures. Many times they choose to adopt unfair means to reach these treasures. Many times people have to face severe pain and sorrow to reach these treasures. However, God is sitting outside the pool and watching them playing this game that He has left them to play. This pool is full of worldly treasures and attractions and is being operated by Maya. Maya is in control of people and all of their activities whilst they are busy in collecting and saving these worldly treasures. In this process some are able to gather some treasures, whilst others are not so successful. This is like building a sandcastle on the beach which will be washed away by the next wave. In this way people have just become puppets in the hands of Maya. They have become a slave of Maya. They are being forced to drink this poison of the Rajo and Tamo aspects of Maya due to their Karni. Look at your forefathers, they were doing the same thing that you are doing now, but what did they take with them? And what are you going to take with you when death comes to your body? When you leave this world then all of your properties, bank balances, relationships, name and fame, positions and authorities will not go with you. Instead, you will carry the weight of all of your deeds to be born in some place in some form of life to keep on going through the same process again and again. At the same time there are some who are focused on the Sat aspects of Maya and are not so much into collecting and saving these worldly treasures, and are engaged in Daya, Dharam, Santokh and Sanjam, which is Sat Ki Karni. Such people are bound to achieve the GurParsaad one day. If nothing else happens, at least they will be blessed with another human life to keep working towards the GurParsaad. But, the ones who are absorbed in Rajo and Tamo aspects have little or no chance of finding their way out from this Bhavsagar. In order to help all of us, God with His utmost kindness sends the Sants, Bhagats, Braham Gyanis and SatGurus to help us find a way out of this Bhavsagar. When we go into the Seva of such souls and give up everything at their Sat Charans then we are blessed with the GurParsaad. Going to the Sat Charans of these Maha Purakhs is based on our Sat Ki Karni which forms our destiny to meet such a soul. Through these Maha Purakhs God explains to us how we can get out of this web of Maya. As a part of this divine play of God, He sent the SatGuru Sahibs in this world to help us all find a way out of the Bhavsagar. Dhan Dhan SatGuru Sahibs with their utmost kindness have given us GurBani which tells us in every Shabad how we can get out of this web of Maya. In the same way, there have been and there still are such souls in the world who can help you to find your way out of this web of Maya. Some do take advantage of these Maha Purakhs and give up everything at their Sat Charans with Tunn, Munn and Dhann and are blessed with the GurParsaad which frees them and blesses them with merger into the Infinite Divine Power. When this happens then there remains only One Infinite Divine Power, everything becomes false and a part of this divine play of God. The web of Maya contains illusions, delusions, Bharams, Dubidha, sorrows, pains, Maan, Apmaan, hell and all such negative forces that keep people drenched in its scum. The GurParsaad takes you out of it. At the end there remains only one Infinite Divine Power. Everything else is perishable and perishes one day for sure. Jah abigat bhagat tah aap. Jah pasrai paasaar sant partaap. Duhoo paakh ka aapeh dhanee. Un kee sobhaa unhoo banee. Aapeh ka-utak karai anad choj. Aapeh ras bhogan nirjog. Jis bhaavai tis aapan naa-ay laavai. Jis bhaavai tis khayl khilaavai. Baysumaar athaah agnat atolai. Ji-o bulaavhu ti-o nanak daas bolai. 8.21. Dhan Dhan Paar Braham Parmeshwar Ji’s divine play has been called the GurParsaadi Khel (the Game of Eternal Blessings) in this GurParsaadi writing. This Khel is GurParsaadi and this book is a part of the GurParsaadi Khel. That is why under the Puran Hukam of Akal Purakh Ji this book has been written trying to give you a glimpse of His infinite Mahima, the Mahima of His Naam, the Mahima of His Sants and Bhagats. The Sant and Bhagat is the Mahima of Akal Purakh, that is why He appears in His Sants and Bhagats. Wherever there is a Sant or a Bhagat sitting, God is right there. When the Infinite Divine Power takes over then a Sant is born. When the Infinite Divine Power takes over then a Bhagat is born from within us. When the Infinite Divine Power takes over our person then a Braham Gyani comes into power. Basically, there is no difference between a Sant, Bhagat, Braham Gyani, SatGur and a Khalsa. Therefore, Khalsa, Sant, Bhagat, Braham Gyani or a SatGur is the Mahima – glory of Akal Purakh Ji. God is represented by these Maha Purakhs on this Earth and these Maha Purakhs are always present on this Earth. In the Dargah, God is represented by Himself and among this world of Maya, God is represented by these Maha Purakhs. For a spiritually illiterate person the Dargah and the Earth are two ends, and these Maha Purakhs make both these ends meet through them. The Infinite Divine Power of Dargah is present on the Earth in the form of these Maha Purakhs. In both places this Infinite Divine Power is prevailing. Both the Dargah and world is being run by this Infinite Divine Power. As a part of His divine play He creates Sants, Bhagats, Braham Gyanis, SatGurus, Khalsas and Gurmukhs and blesses them with His divine powers. The ones who while sitting on Earth reach the Dargah and make a place for them in there, are blessed with His divine powers. The ones who follow His divine laws with His own command and achieve the GurParsaad, are blessed with this Infinite Divine Powers while physically sitting on this Earth, but at the same time sitting in the Dargah as well. That is why GurBani says wherever there is a Sant sitting the Dargah is right there. Wherever there is a Braham Gyani sitting, the Dargah is right there. Wherever there is a SatGur, sitting the Dargah is right there. And where there is Dargah there is no rule of Maya. So sitting at the Charans of a Sant is sitting in Dargah and beyond three aspects of Maya. This is why a Sant is the Mahima of Akal Purakh, because God makes the Dargah appear where there is a Sant present on this Earth and that is where both ends meet – Earth and Dargah. Earth becomes Dargah. Earth becomes Dhan Dhan where there is a Sant sitting. Our Simran and our Sat Karams are all carried out only by the grace of God. That is why it is called GurParsaad – the GurParsaad of Naam, Naam Simran, Naam Ki Kamai, Puran Bandgi and Seva. This GurParsaad is blessed to us only with the divine commandment. In fact, we do nothing. We are capable of doing nothing. Everything is carried out by the Infinite Divine Power. That is why the highest level of divine blessing is when this Infinite Divine Power takes over and our individuality and our identity is lost. Living in this world of Maya our focus on the Sat Karams and our prayers, our Ardas, and our complete surrender at the Sat Charans of the Guru bring us this GurParsaad. Our real life begins when we are blessed with the GurParsaad and this Infinite Divine Power takes over everything for us. This is called Jivan Mukti, then living in this world, we become internally detached. We will live in Sehaj Samadhi at every moment. At the same time enjoying all of the facilities of life and ruling over Maya. When the Infinite Divine Power takes over then whatever we say is the word of this Infinite Divine Power. Everything we do is under the Hukam. That is why GurBani is the word of the Infinite Divine Power. That is why the Shabad is the Guru as the Shabad is the Hukam and the Hukam is the Guru – it is the Infinite Divine Power. This Infinite Divine Power is Sat and this Sat is Dhan Dhan Paar Braham Pita Parmeshwar Ji. Blessed with Puran Braham Gyan when we look at any creation and every creation and try to go to its origin we find that every creation is proof of His amazing and infinite divine powers. The end of logic gives birth to the divine wisdom. Then we start to realize how surprising is His every creation. How it has originated and how it is run by this Infinite Divine Power. With this happening to our mind, Hirda, soul and body we are freed from the rule of Maya and find our self lost in nature all of the time. In this way we are able to enjoy everything in our life without being affected by Maya and at the same time being absorbed in nature – God.

    Its sickening of what is happening in the outside world especially for the young victims who are from dysfunctional families where nobody has tried to understand the victims thoughts or state of mind. Then they end up in this web of hell.

    I agree that evil must be confronted and challenged. I think some active members of our quom has been doing this admirably for a while now - in spite of massive challenges and powerful institutes constantly trying to undermine and obfuscate their efforts . I think forming alliances like you suggest is a very bad idea, because we have no idea of the motives and backgrounds of the external people who might act like allies but have other agendas. And I can guarantee some of those who will latch on will be informants planted by various agencies (including some sections of the police) inimical to the Sikh community trying to address this issue. It would only take one or two rotten eggs to completely defame us and set back the progress we have made. Then the issue just gets sidelined and dismissed as one only extremists are concerned with, whereas it is clearly a matter many people in the panth, from all sorts of backgrounds are concerned about. From your average mona to Amritdharis and all the spectrum in between. This is a very common tactic that has been used against us for decades now - we have to be wise to it. The ideal situation is a cultural shift amongst our entire community in problem nations. What we really need to aim for is awareness and vigilance that starves the predators of their victims. We need girls to not get themselves into these situations in the first place! This can only be achieved by education; not only of those who might be targeted but also wider family members in terms of how they raise their children. We also need to tweak attitudes which are so lost in the rat race for material gain and success (understandably) that they do not feel the sense of panthic ekta that they should, and only act concerned when problems hit them close to home. Often such people will sweep issues they have experienced within their families under the rug in order to keep up some facade of being successful and not having problems. Right now we frequently have this coy, prudish attitude towards the matter (although this appears to be slowly changing). Some family elders seem reluctant to broach the issue because it is contentious and perceived to be a 'dirty' subject they would rather avoid. This has to change, and I believe it is changing - though it could be faster. Another key issue I think we need to address concurrently is the taboo matter of sexual abuse within our community, within families or family friends. I think Bhai Mohan Singh of the SAS has done good, pioneering work in this respect. These things are vastly underreported in all communities, especially conservative ones. In addressing external predators we shouldn't forget sweeping up under our own beds [manji] (as the Panjabi saying goes).

    Exactly. We cannot copy them. Mahapurush have different roles and duties in this world, they are sent by Nirankar Himself for certain objectives. We as householders need proper sleep, diet, exercise, and kirat to fulfill our duties and roles and to meet Nirankar ji.

    One more thing you are very lucky to find an Amridhari man in your life, who not only looks like but is a Sikh. ( living with him you can see how difficult it is to maintain that in today's society. - but if he's loyal to his Guru how loyal would he be to u) value him. Our society has always put woman at a lower position than men.. We in this era fight for equality ( outside) but inside long for safety in our man's arms. Guru Sahib in our bani also consider himself as a woman and all jeev as woman where only Lord- Waheguru- Almighty is the man. Bani teaches us all the Importance of being HUMBLE. It's easy for us woman to be humble and surrender to THE MAN - THE LORD and easily swim across this Bhavsagar because our society has made us like that( only if we don't rebel inside/) and this is a boon in disguise. https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.speakingtree.in/blog/nivan-suakhar/m-lite Hers a sisterly advice for all " Women" who wishes to please their " Husband" - SGGS JI ang 1384

    https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=zs5rD4BJwFs Near the end, Sant Jarnail Singh Ji says that we only praise the one who has slaughtered a dusht, not an innocent being. Baba ji was of the highest avastha possible in a manukha dehi, a puran purakh, jeevan mukht individual. So when he says in another speech that every village should keep one motorcycle and the youth should take an oath to execute the wicked, then we shouldn't doubt his bachan. War is very dear to Akal Purakh as they say.

    The way i see it sometimes is that being married is not a bad thing when it comes to doing bhagati simran etc. As they were gristi mahapursh in our religion such as Sant Gurbachan Singh Ji Bhindrawale,Sant Kartar Singh Ji Bhindrawale,Sant Jarnail Singh Ji Bhindrawale, Sant Puran Singh Ji Kericho wale,Baba Mihan Singh Ji Sihar Wale,Bibi Balwant Kaur Ji etc. It just depends i suppose on how your way of lifestyle is as i am not married so i can't say anything about this subject.

    Because Veerji,thats all our people currently are worried about. Externalities. Inside maybe all empty but they have to show off outside.I once read a Buddhist monk saying that his goal is to "Build People and not to worry about building temples.Once you build people they will themselves go forth and build the necessary temples." This is where we lack. We focus on building empty Gurudwaras and totally ignore the people and their soul. It's funny how when you're alive no one wants to look at your face but once you're dead everyone comes running to pray for you.Too little too late.These guys needed help and religious guidance a long time ago. I know the effects of alcohol personally and can vouch for the destruction and anger it fuels. I am willing to bet that the perpetrators of this massacre are in deep regret right now crying their eyes out once they sober down. Why is it so hard for sangat to pressure their Gurudwara managements to allocate funds for battling alcohol and drugs? Addiction therapy courses are so prevalent these days,especially in the west where people can train themselves to be a counsellor.

    Veer ji you are right it does suck especially as these people sold everything in India and end up like this is even more sad. I do remember a few years back of how these people were sleeping in bins and telephone booths during the winter which was really really sad to see as how they had to suffer in the freezing cold. And on the other side how much money was blown on nagar kirtains,building funds makes me feel angry about how nobody at the gurdwara helps these people.

    Some strange noises

    you gave words to my feelings, when I mentioned few days ago that we get confused if we are awake or sleeping..... It was not a regular sleep veerji, it was your temporary visit to - heaven. It was SUNN, awareness, pure consciousness , antar dhyaan, deep meditation ⛩ etc what ever we may call it but since beginning we have been understanding that as we loose the control of our bodies we are sleeping, we are not able to differentiate. Once we will gain avastha ( with Guru Sahib's kirpa) we may attain this state voluntarily. { @Lucky and @Sat1176 veerji pls correct me if I am wrong} Though I am no expert but I perceive this as if - let me try to put in words( I am bad at it) My little daughter just falls asleep as and when she's done- tired of her hyperactivity. Be it on the bike- in car - at someone's place or whenever,- provided she gets my lap. At times I get irritated and say - how selfish! But then as I think deeply it's the ultimate trust that she has on me, the security she finds in my lap. She just doesn't sleep in anybody else's arms but mine because she feels that I am '" There"' and that's what I should feel for my Babaji- He's there. All I need to do is - surrender- just give off Tensions, fears, daily chores, thoughts, happiness, sadness, anger, ego and finally my ultimate identity. I know it's easier said than done and that's where the problem is... But that's what the journey is all about. Hope this may be of some help And yes for that flu - along with the medicine just keep a tablet of 'kapoor' near ur nostrils on your pillow at night. and bite raw ginger with salt if you may I use it on all family just at the onset of infection and it works.

    Some strange noises

    @Ragmaala if you can hear them in sleep or dream state then that is a very good sign. That's where you ideally want to hear them from what I understand. It is the stage where mind has seperated from poan/body and mind is being awoken by shabads on the other side. Its good that your seperated from body when listening to loud anhad because there is no load/stress on body. Yes the sounds can get quite loud the more you concentrate on them. It should give your more reassurances that they are not just any old sounds. I have had similar experience where whilst listening to the sound my body became very heavy and I couldn't move my arms legs or head. Took good 45 mins before I felt normal again. Was like I was super drowsy and body was too heavy to lift. If that happens just come back slowly and don't rush yourself to gain body control and trying to force body parts to move. It's always frightening when something happens the first time because you have never experienced it before. Especially if the sensation is overwhelming and unexpected. You seriously need to listen to the q&a's by Bhai Simranjeet Tohana from the links I posted few days ago. You will understand more now your experiencing yourself. Keep going veer.

    @Jageeraveerji, . U see me on a pedestal which is actually a broken dabba- I keep falling from . On a serious note lemme share my latest discovery- I was going through 'Laava' and I realized that it's like Guru Sahib is describing the four stages to meet the Lord. ਮਹਲਾ ੪ ॥ soohee mehlaa 4. Soohee, Fourth Mehl: ਹਰਿ ਪਹਿਲੜੀ ਲਾਵ ਪਰਵਿਰਤੀ ਕਰਮ ਦ੍ਰਿੜਾਇਆ ਬਲਿ ਰਾਮ ਜੀਉ ॥ har pahilarhee laav parvirtee karam drirh-aa-i-aa bal raam jee-o. In the first round of the marriage ceremony, the Lord sets out His Instructions for performing the daily duties of married life. ਬਾਣੀ ਬ੍ਰਹਮਾ ਵੇਦੁ ਧਰਮੁ ਦ੍ਰਿੜਹੁ ਪਾਪ ਤਜਾਇਆ ਬਲਿ ਰਾਮ ਜੀਉ ॥ banee barahmaa vayd Dharam darirhHu paap tajaa-i-aa bal raam jee-o. Instead of the hymns of the Vedas to Brahma, embrace the righteous conduct of Dharma, and renounce sinful actions. ਧਰਮੁ ਦ੍ਰਿੜਹੁ ਹਰਿ ਨਾਮੁ ਧਿਆਵਹੁ ਸਿਮ੍ਰਿਤਿ ਨਾਮੁ ਦ੍ਰਿੜਾਇਆ ॥ Dharam darirhHu har naam Dhi-aavahu simrit naam drirh-aa-i-aa.

    Dukh Bhanjani Sahib

    cybersing jee, the purpose of this Bani as well as any other, is only to get us purified in order to re-unite ourselves with Him, through the prem bhakti of the jaap of His paviter Nam, as seen in the following verses. ਦੁਖ ਭੰਜਨੁ ਤੇਰਾ ਨਾਮੁ ਜੀ ਦੁਖ ਭੰਜਨੁ ਤੇਰਾ ਨਾਮੁ ॥ Dhukh Bhanjan Thaeraa Naam Jee Dhukh Bhanjan Thaeraa Naam || दुख भंजनु तेरा नामु जी दुख भंजनु तेरा नामु ॥ The Destroyer of sorrow is Your Name, Lord; the Destroyer of sorrow is Your Name. To some the question now may arise as per how should it be done, well, it should be done as much as possible in the early hours of Amrit Vela, otherwise any time is good to wash away our countless paaps, that is why Guru Jee facilitates us by saying: ਆਠ ਪਹਰ ਆਰਾਧੀਐ ਪੂਰਨ ਸਤਿਗੁਰ ਗਿਆਨੁ ॥੧॥ ਰਹਾਉ ॥ Aath Pehar Aaraadhheeai Pooran Sathigur Giaan ||1|| Rehaao || आठ पहर आराधीऐ पूरन सतिगुर गिआनु ॥१॥ रहाउ ॥ Twenty-four hours a day, dwell upon the wisdom of the Perfect True Guru. ||1||Pause|| All time is auspicious time, if only He is remembered through His holy Name. What other benefits happen, when clings on to His Lotus Feet through His Name? Many beautiful things happen of which we could not even imagine, for example : ਜਮ ਕੰਕਰੁ ਨੇੜਿ ਨ ਆਵਈ ਰਸਨਾ ਹਰਿ ਗੁਣ ਗਾਉ ॥੧॥ Jam Kankar Naerr N Aavee Rasanaa Har Gun Gaao ||1|| जम कंकरु नेड़ि न आवई रसना हरि गुण गाउ ॥१॥ The Messenger of Death does not even approach those who chant the Glorious Praises of the Lord with the tongue. ||1| Then one more most beautiful thing: ਕਹੁ ਨਾਨਕ ਮਨਿ ਭਇਆ ਪਰਗਾਸਾ ਪਾਇਆ ਪਦੁ ਨਿਰਬਾਣੀ ॥੪॥੪॥੧੨੫॥ Kahu Naanak Man Bhaeiaa Paragaasaa Paaeiaa Padh Nirabaanee ||4||4||125|| कहु नानक मनि भइआ परगासा पाइआ पदु निरबाणी ॥४॥४॥१२५॥ Says Nanak, the Divine Light has dawned within my mind; I have obtained the state of Nirvaanaa. ||4||4||125| Waheguru Akal Purukh Himself comes to abide in our minds. What else can one want? What else is left to ask for? Stay blessed. SSA.

    Congratulations! Finding this virtual sangat has been a blessing for each of us here and yes I do believe that it's only received by good fortune ( bin bhaaga satsang na labhe) 2nd congratulations! That unlike 90percent people who believe that the purpose of human life is just - Khao piyo mauj karo- you have realised that it's way more than that... ( I guess it's eaay to realise the difference between maya- and Gurmat for a Sikh than others) .. so now when you realise this fact things become rather - difficult, simply because our path is different- our goal is higher and most of all we live with people who don't understand this! And here this sadh sangat becomes a blessing. This PDF is ofcourse beautiful! But only that it's not easy to understand at beginners level.Listening( suniye) can only be understood once you start hearing the Anhad Bani. Before that it would be 'cutting'// clearing' your - paap-mael( dirt) - kilvikh or whatever you may call it. And that would be needed to be removed first by ' Naam' then 'shabd' manifests and listening would start.... Here are the few links that may help

    Sleep during meditation

    Bhai Dharamjit Singh explained the vidi to try and transcend sleep when it comes during meditation. Listen from 32 mins. Conclusion we want to do simran to get us to the point of sleepiness and then try and remain awake at the junction. May not be so easy as it sounds. Most of us don't know when that exact point comes.

    To me it seems more complex than that, the people targeting our community are operating in a wider national culture where pedophilia is covertly tolerated. That's why we had all the rampant pedophilia going on in the BBC for years, suspicious activity in Parliament itself and a blind eye turned towards decades of street level abuse of both apneean and lower working class gorian (in the thousands at least). It's now apparent that multiple police forces across England ignored this and even covered up for abusers. There is no way the political classes didn't know what was going on either. We can see the reaction to that women Labour MP in the slides who tried to highlight issues in this department in her constituency (she was removed from the front benches by the leader of her party Corbyn if I recall rightly). This is much wider than just perverts operating on street level. There has been complicity across agencies (like social services, media and the police, and even the political classes). People need to grasp that. Addition: I should add, this 'cultural context' in England is changing as we speak (albeit reluctantly) because people are challenging it. Many people would rather things continue as they were, but we should never accept that. Those brothers and sisters amongst apnay who have challenged this and made sacrifices in doing so should feel proud that they have forced the establishment to face this issue. Although (sadly) thousands of girls have fallen foul of the long standing attitude towards the problem over many decades, they should remember that thousands upon thousands of girls are likely to have escaped the clutches of sexual predators due to their efforts at forewarning potential victims. They made a difference in the face of very powerful adversaries who consistently tried to obfuscate and vilify them (and still do!) and this activism should continue until we don't live in a society where organised groups of pedophiles and rapists who target vulnerable members of our community operate with impunity.

The only reason for adding the bani of Kabir ji Farid ji Bhagat Trilochan, Bhagat Ravidas Dhanna ji Sain nai King Pipa Sadhna ji - a kasai - and 14 such in SGGS ji was to make us understand that It's not the jaat ( caste), creed, colour, religion, daily routine/ rituals you follow, work you do for living, country, social status etc that makes you meet the Lord only the love for your Lord ot prema Bhakti that matters.

    A new realization emerged today -> The higher self is neither day nor night The higher self is neither left nor right... nor behind nor in front The higher self is neither man nor woman The higher self is neither human nor animal The higher self is neither cold nor hot The higher self is neither sound nor silence Shabad is heard within the mind, but who is the one perceiving shabad (anhad naad sounds)? Who is the one creating shabad? If the higher self were silence, who is the one who perceives the silence? Who is the one who creates the silence -------->>>>>>> If we are God, and God is us.... how can silence be God? We must be that thing that perceives both the silence and the noise God is right here, right now. The divine energy is manifest all around.

    Quotes from AMRIT BANI

    Question 14: Dear Guru Jee, why is it that inspite of all the regular practices and offerings to Waheguru I do not get even a glimplse of His darshan? Guru Jee : my dear sikh, listen carefully; if you really want to have His darshan, you have to discard all other practices which keep you away from Him, and faithfully and devotedly do the following as I say : ਦਸਵੈ ਦੁਆਰਿ ਕੁੰਚੀ ਜਬ ਦੀਜੈ ॥ Dhasavai Dhuaar Kunchee Jab Dheejai || When the key is inserted in the Tenth Gate, ਤਉ ਦਇਆਲ ਕੋ ਦਰਸਨੁ ਕੀਜੈ ॥੨੪॥ Tho Dhaeiaal Ko Dharasan Keejai ||24|| Then, the Blessed Vision of the Merciful Lord's Darshan is seen. * Note: the Tenth Gate referred by Guru Jee in the verses above, is located in the center above the 2 eyes; and the key which has to be used to open that Door and have His darshan, is His simran alone.

    Thanks Soulfinder Veerji for this gem. Now my Mool Mantar is always accompanied with this Salok. A different rhythm and emotion arises when it's read together with Mool Mantar.The emotion of begging,surrendering and asking for grace, to be spared from vices and everyday I stay away from vices,I know it's only possible because Maharaj has granted me this boon. I didn't do sava lakh jaap but at the beginning I was doing 1 mala of this with Mool Mantar daily. These days I do 1 mala whenever possible.

    Quotes from AMRIT BANI

    Question 12: Guru Jee, I am a bit confused, for I hear people say that all past noble and warriors who sacrificed their lives, are there as such in His court, is it true? Guru Jee: ਇਹੁ ਅਰੁ ਓਹੁ ਜਬ ਮਿਲੈ ਤਬ ਮਿਲਤ ਨ ਜਾਨੈ ਕੋਇ ॥੩੮॥ Eihu Ar Ouhu Jab Milai Thab Milath N Jaanai Koe ||38|| When this soul and that Lord are blended, then, having been blended, they cannot be known separately. So, all that you have heard is agyanta which creates doubts in you. * Waheguru is One, when anybody returns there into Him, becomes one Him without any distinction. Any spiritual being/ entity if seen as such in any of the limitless lower spiritual realms, be sure that those realms are yet under the jurisdiction of maya, thus very much in Brahm, and much far away from Satnam, the Highest level of Consciousness and Truth.

    Confused about Kundalini /Rom Rom

    Bhen ji i am not a expert on the subject as i have not reached that level. But its best to find a mahapursh or a puran gurmukh who has done simran with these stages as doing this type of simran jaap without gudiance is to hard understand about whats right or wrong. Try to get books by Bhai Ragbir Singh Ji Bir as they have talked and discussed a lot about simran stages from their personal life.

    Confused about Kundalini /Rom Rom

    Before someone critises techniques and simply passing them if as yog mat, they should along side their comments say to the sangat I used this technique as per gurbani and achieved xyz result. But you will never hear this in any video. This holier than thou attitude, is becoming a serious disease with our faith and we are quick to downplay techniques that mahapursh have used In the past. This knowledge will become lost real soon, if the majority of the emphasis is placed only on outwardly seva and reading gurbani. Don't get me wrong reading gurbani is absolutely important as without it you have no knowledge, but one must also walk on the path and follow the instructions within it. How else will we do khoj of ourselves? Am sure I read the pangti somewhere, SatGur ki seva Har Naam dayaiyeh. No doubt Sant/Bhai Ranjit Singh is doing a lot of seva and parchar in the panth, probably like no other in recent times, which means he has even a bigger responsibility to put people on the right path. I am yet to see what that is from him in terms of bhagti advice.

    Confused about Kundalini /Rom Rom

    Someone out there is trying to cause friction with this video between him and other groups. First of all why was AKJ shown doing naam simran at the beginning? Do AKJ teach applying pressure on the navel during naam abhiyaas? Anyway leaving that point aside, I don't agree with what he is saying. I have heard a number of mahapursh teach this technique and the first time was years ago, in the audio simran instruction recording of Sant Baba Isher Singh (Rare Wale). He clearly stated in that, when one applies pressure on the navel you will eventually begin to feel the pulse behind it. When simran is synchronized with that pulse and dhyaan is placed there it would lead to manifestation of Rom Rom simran. He said Bakhari was done at the mouth, Madhma in Khant, Pasanti in the heart and Para at the navel. Maskeen ji also wrote about this in the book Prabhu Simran. I also recall reading in the instructions given by Sant Baba Waryam Singh that one should not progress to the trikuti until you see the planets and starts at the navel and one hears the anhad shabad. Secondly in Sidh Gosht (Ang 945), Sri Guru Nanak Dev ji says the following to the Siddhas: ih man maigal kahaa basee-alay kahaa basai ih pavnaa. "Where does this mind-elephant live? Where does the breath reside? kahaa basai so sabad a-oDhoo taa ka-o chookai man kaa bhavnaa. Where should the Shabad reside, so that the wanderings of the mind may cease?" nadar karay taa satgur maylay taa nij ghar vaasaa ih man paa-ay. When the Lord blesses one with His Glance of Grace, he leads him to the True Guru. Then, this mind dwells in its own home within. aapai aap khaa-ay taa nirmal hovai Dhaavat varaj rahaa-ay. When the individual consumes his egotism, he becomes immaculate, and his wandering mind is restrained. ki-o mool pachhaanai aatam jaanai ki-o sas ghar soor samaavai. "How can the root, the source of all be realized? How can the soul know itself? How can the sun enter into the house of the moon?" gurmukh ha-umai vichahu khovai ta-o naanak sahj samaavai. ||64|| The Gurmukh eliminates egotism from within; then, O Nanak, the sun naturally enters into the home of the moon. ||64|| ih man nihchal hirdai vasee-alay gurmukh mool pachhaan rahai. When the mind becomes steady and stable, it abides in the heart, and then the Gurmukh realizes the root, the source of all. naabh pavan ghar aasan baisai gurmukh khojat tat lahai.
