    Can A Sikh Do Namaz?

    Why would someone want to do namaz anyway? With Gurbani we get to understand what is being relayed because the language is a lot more familiar.

    Hello Ajay, welcome. It is true, many religions describe the divnity as luminous energy, just as you mention in your post above. But as we all know, lights have different intensities. For example, we have a candle light, a tube light, a 20 watts bulb, or even a 100 watts one, just to mention a few sources... So, if the creator is for example like a Sun, then we souls having emanted from Him, are just as rays of that Sun. And just as all rays are the same, each one of them carrying the same light, the same heat.... in that sense, we all souls are same, above any barriers such as genders, classes, caste, dharam, mazab, color, race, etc etc and etc ....the list is endless. In Gurbani, in the Aarti, we come to know something on this respect: Sabh meh jot, Jot hae soee Which means, His light is in everything, He Himself is the Light. Other thing is, as per our own different karmas, we are born in different cultures, in different countries, in different religions, different races...etc But all these conditions are outer aspects, which differ in each birth of the chaurasee ka chakar .... and yet the stupids, and profoundly mentally disabled, create conflicts among themselves, hatred, thirst for blood, by killing whosoever do not think alike ...utter madness, and yet they call themselves spiritually adavnced or gyanis, or even the priest class people. Mostly all look at the different sizes and colors of the boxes, and make classifications/discriminations, as per those outer aspects, which are temporary and perishable, and yet, the essence of Truth in them all as souls, is the same in all. Such a pity, blinds commiting attrocities and unjustice. Almost everybody forgets that, nobody is better or superior to anyone else. It is just that by their own past karam, and in accordance with the Law of Nature, (as you sow, so shall you reap),each one as said above, is born in different envoirements, such as color, caste, gender, nationality, dharam or mazab..... All this is done strictly and carried under the universal law of karma. Nobody can alter it, nor bribe nature. Religious scriptures are full of references and examples, to this one law. In the Bible it says: even the hair on your body is numbered. (Nothing happensjust like that). In the Bani we read: Aapay beejeh, aapay khaaey.( You sow, you reap and eat). Going back to the point of Light as divinity mentioned in different religions, it could be well said, as all beings are also light, whether devis, devtays, incarnations, gods, godesses, angels...etc, absolutley all beings carry the light of their origin. Some beings have less or almost no stain of karmas, thus they are purer, their glass covering is not so dirty, so in them the light or purity shines more... some are heavy sinners, their glass covering is so dirty, that there is absolute darkness, ignorance, no morality in them .... and so on.... yet in the very depth of all of them, the flame of the divine is the same in all, no less, no more, no partiality. Moreover, in the infinite creation all beings are like stars in the sky, yet there is one Infinite Sun also, absolutley brilliant, full of refulgence, full of mercy, full of Love. And refering to the Light of this Highest Consciousness, Supreme and eternal Truth, Gurbani tells us: Je Sau Chanda Ugveh Sooraj Chareh Hazaar , Ete Chanan Hundeya(n) Gur Bin Ghor Andhar. If a hundred moons were to rise, and a thousand suns appeared, even with such light, there would still be pitch darkness without the Guru. And this Guru, is no other than the Aad Guru, or call it Satnam, or Waheguru also. Ooch apaar, beant Soami. So you see, each one talks of light as divinity as per their own reach or level of consciousness. According to their escalated heights, that they view that light and took it as ultimate reality. But in Gurbani, Guru Sahiban, Bhagat Jan, Gurmukhs, Sant Jan, having witnessed the refulgence and Light of that Supreme Being, Parbrahm Parmeshwar, namely Akal Purukh, Waheguru or Satnam; describe and share with us, the majesty, the inmensity, the akhoot Jot, of that One Universal Supreme Power. You see, there is a vast difference between these Purest Beings: Guru Sahiban, Sant Jan, Gurmukhs, and the rest of the beings, howsoever prophets or endless list of gods there may be. While the former, see only the Jot of Waheguru in all, thus unite humanity as equal, and give the gift of His bhakti to all alike; the limited blind ones, divide and discriminate, thus remain prisoners in the mayavee creation. If have any chances, just dive deep into the Bani, and savour the Amrit of Nam contained in it, for the ultimate purpose of blending into that Anhad Bani as one without distinction. Stay blessed. Sat Sree Akal.

    Timeless Wisdom

    “The body has its own way of knowing, a knowing that has little to do with logic, and much to do with truth, little to do with control, and much to do with acceptance, little to do with division and analysis, and much to do with union.” ~ Marilyn Sewell *Note: though the writer of the above verses is not of any eastern philosophy, yet if paid attention, it is a natural expression of a soul to find its origin, where it meets the need of virtues known in sikhee such as: no manmat, bhaana, and an intense desire to become one with its origin, the Highest Primal Truth, which in Gurmat we know as Waheguru Akal Purukh, or, Aad Sach... it is just amazing, how the souls have a natural instinct towards its origin, without limitations of any kind, created in ignorance by manmukhs of any caste, creed or color. SABNA JEEA KA IKO DAATA, SO MEH VISAAR NA JAAE. SSA.

    Quotes from AMRIT BANI

    Series of questions from a Sikh and answers from Guru Jee: Question 1 : Dear Sachay Patshah, how can I find and meet Waheguru Akal Purukh. Answer from Guru Jee: ਅਬਿਨਾਸੀ ਪਾਇਆ ਨਾਮੁ ਧਿਆਇਆ ਸਗਲ ਮਨੋਰਥ ਪਾਏ ॥ Abinaasee Paaeiaa Naam Dhhiaaeiaa Sagal Manorathh Paaeae || The Imperishable Lord is obtained, meditating on the Naam, and all one's wishes are fulfilled

    Can A Sikh Do Namaz?

    My 2 cents: Hell No!, I won't say much but Sikhi path is much superior path than islam, christianity, buddhism, hinduism, judaism? How do i know this? I tried to study them, everything goes back how superior sikhi and rips through other religions is Bhai gurdas ji says- sikhi is highway path and mukh bhagti , hirde gyan. Based on my understanding, Lets see how much daily blessing Guru Nanak Dev Nirankar sikhi gives to sikh Japji sahib ensues Bhramgyan- for example Bij mantar, maha mantar, mool mantar, sunan, manan , nidashasan pauri, aporakh , porakh gyan, mahavaks, 5 khands Jaap sahib- akaal ustati for example- jiv bhram ekta- achal morat anubhav parkash amitoj khijee, sada sachda anand Tav Parsad swaie- Jin Prem kiyo tin hi prabh payeo Chaupi sahib- protection of sikhi, sikh and panth Anand sahib - Naam mehima and jiv mukhti anand bani Rehras sahib- ustat of akaal purkh- sarab nirantar - Too(n) ghatt ghatt antar sarab nirantar jee har ayko purakh samaanaa Kirtan sohila- eka jot updesh, superiority of Kalyug mein kirtan pardhana, kirtan preference over che gur - six ideology of sanatanic dharma Then More daily blessing Mool mantar abhyas and Vahiguru mantar naam simran, das granthi gutka - beant banis So much blessing and anand may dhur ki bani, sikh shouldn't have time to look anywhere else then top of free- seva and free langar, what else do you guys want?

    Can A Sikh Do Namaz?

    True, and well said. But above any other things, with Gurbani alone we become better human beings and become one with Waheguru. So no need for anything else from anyone. Gurbani is the highest truth. SSA.

    Yes, abit like 'shuddi karan' operation in 1984... Its a threat that no one really cares about until it hits their own home. Growing up this is more of a working class issue or lower middle class issue. Dont want to go into this as there are big issues with educated/city type.snobbish sikhs but that is not a direct crime towards us. Like i said before this shits gonna carry on until the wrong girl is fucked with and then its gonna go wild, and all the pappu sikhs will then join the bandwagon. @dalsingh101 you may aswell give your 2 cents. In regards to whats really happening on street level. Its obvious most people dont really give a shit.. I also feel for those who do not want to get directly involved then at least spread the awareness and support those who are doing so. From people spreading awareness on this site to those active. Donate to groups such as sikhawarwness society.. like do something man.. Anyway over and out on this, fellow sikhs just spread awareness, be active if you can and most importantly support our yodeh brothers who are involved on street/ground level.

    Simran Stages In terms of a layman AJAPA JAAP is the spiritual condition of a person when the Simran goes on an auto pilot mode in your Surat and then in Hirdey and so on as explained below. It means that Simran becomes a round the clock thing inside you, Simran doesn’t stop at any moment, it carries on and such a condition comes with Gurkirpa and after a lot of Bhagti Kamai or can also be attained with the Kirpa of a Puran Braham Gyani. The normal sequence is as follows: 1. Jaap with Tounge – Rasna – this happens in Dharam Khand 2. Jaap with the breathing – with Swaas – this happens in Gyan Khand and Saram Khand 3. Then Naam goes into your mind – Surat, in your thinking, then it becomes Simran from Jaap – this is a very good stage – this happens in Saram Khand and Karam Khand – some people go into Smadhi at this stage. 4. The next stage is when Simran goes into Hirdey – this one is even much higher stage when Naam goes into Hirdey – this is where it goes on an automatic mode, this is where the real bhagti starts, one goes into Smadhi and Sun Smadhi– Karam Khand – this is when you go into Smadhi and the real bhagti starts, your bhagti account is opened in the Dargah. 5. The next stage is when Simran travels to the Nabhi, when Nabhi Kamal blossoms – Karam Khand 6. The next Stage is when Simran goes into Kundlini – Mooladhaar Chakkar and spine – Karam Khand 7. The next stage is when Simran travels through the spine to the brain, and back to 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 opens and you form a permanent connection with Akal Purakh, you start to get divine knowledge – Braham Gyan. This happens in Sach Khand. Enjoyment – Anand in Smadhi and Sun Smadhi is beyond description. That is why the Maha Purakhs go into very deep meditation some time for days together. You experience a lot of things during your Smadhi and Sun Smadhi, see a lot of things, it is beyond description what happens and through what you go when you go into deep meditation. This is the stage when all the doors – Bajjar Kapaat are opened and there is a continuous flow of Amrit, body is always full of Amrit. 8. The Simran in Smadhi and Sun Smadhi continues until NIRGUN AND SARGUN becomes one, at this point Simran goes into rom-rom – every bit of your body does Naam Simran, your Suksham Dehi becomes as pure as gold, your entire body is filled with Naam Amrit all the time. You become Braham Leen, and reach Atal Awastha. These stages are beyond description. Sat Chit Anand Ghar Hamare – Gurmukh Rom Rom Har Dhyae – Nirgun Sargun Nirankaar Sun Smadhi Aap, Apan Kia Nanka Apan Hi Fir Jaap and so on. One lives in Puran Parkash all the time and listens to Ilahi Kirtan – Anhad Naad Dhunis all the time. It is just incredible experience. This is when one becomes Sat Ram Dass and is directed by the Almighty to serve the Sangat. And this is what your target should be when you have been prompted to move on the Bhagti Marg. Following is the benefit sequence: Jaap with Rasna 1000 times = Jaap in Swaas one time Jaap in Swaas 1000 times = Simran in Surat one time Simran in Surat 1000 times = Simran in Hirdey or elsewhere one time So Simran in Hirdey and beyond is the most rewarding one. Again some people might think we are getting into counting the benefit, and it is correct to say that we should not indulge in counting, but it is just a way to make the Sangat understand that which way and where Simran will bring what kind of rewards. The 1000 numbers signify that the rewards of Simran in Hirdey are much higher than doing Jaap with Rasna. If you do Jaap with Rasna your Rasna will become pavitter – pious, by doing jaap in along breathing – swass your swass will become pious – pavitter, by doing Simran in mind-Surat-Chit- mind will become pious – pavitter, and that is what you need to do to make your mind pious – pavitter, that is how you will have control on your mind – MAN JEETE JAG JEET – MAN TU JYOT SAROOP HAI and you will be able to rise above Panj Doots – KAAM, KRODH, LOBH, MOH, AHANKAAR AND ALSO ASA, TRISHNA, MANSHA, NINDYA, CHUGLI, BAKHILI, RAJ, JOBAN, DHAN, MAAL, ROOP, RAS, GANDH, THESE THUGS – MENTAL SICKNESSES. And when Simran goes in to Hirdey – and Simran will go to Hirdey by itself with Gurkirpa only, and so in Chit, Hirdey will become pavitter – pious and a pious Hirdey will become Mahaparupkari and Dana Dina, NIRBHAO, NIRVAIR and so on, it will start to absorb all the vital qualities of Akal Purakh and will become a Puran Sant Hirda, and will achieve JIVAN MUKTI – PARAM PADVI-BRAHAM GYAN. The true definition of a Sant is not by wearing a chola – outside dress and outside rituals, it is the Hirda that becomes Puran Sachyara – completely truthful and that – HIRDA IS SANT and when the Naam Rattan goes into Hirdey – jad naam rattn Hirdey vich jad da hai taan Braham Gyan di neev rakhi jandi hai ji, so please try to understand it and put it into your daily lives to get Naam Rattan planted in your Hirdey – then naam goes to Nabhi and spine and so on, and again it happens by itself and with Gurkirpa and not by our own efforts, it will happen only under Hukam. Again 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, rise above Panj Doots, kill your desires and don’t indulge in Nindya, rise above all the doubts – Dubidha – Dharam De Bharam – follow the Braham Gyan of Gurbani in your daily lives, become a Puran Sachyara – completely truthful person, serve the truth and achieve your goal of Jivan Mukti. As you continue on this path, and as you make more and more progress by following and living according to Gurbani, and Simran is the most important ingradient over here, and you become more and more Sachyara, your Atmik Awastha will keep on moving upwards through the Five Khands.In Sach Khand you reach Chad Di Kala – this is a very high stage of spirituality, it is the completeness stage, it comes only after reaching the Atal Awastha, means when the soul is always in the Nirlep Awastha, means can’t be distracted or deviated due to any happening around you, doesn’t bring any doubts and bharams in side you concerning the Gur, Guru and Gurbani, it is the highest stage of bandgi, it is the Puran Braham Gyan Stage, Param Padvi Stage, the Sach Khand Stage, when nothing can break you up from the Gur, Guru and Gurbani, when you have completely won over the maya. The soul becomes a single vision, no worldly sukh or dukh can effect it, no animosity with anybody, no effect of ustat or nindya, always absorbed in Almighty, always doing good to others, no harming or hurting of anybody, win over panj doots, desires and maya. This state of Chad Di Kala comes through Naam. In Gurbani this is what the Satguru’s prayed to God if it is in God’s Will, that Naam Chad di kala be given to EVERYONE IN THE WHOLE WORLD FOR THEIR UPLIFMENT. ‘Nanak Naam Chad di kala. Teray Bhanay Sarbatt Da Bhalla.” When you are this state you also help others to reach it too. That is a SANT reason for being in this world.

    Add to the above, because I don't think you're old enough to remember: When Gurdwaras were original being purchased and renovated/built in the early days. Many nonjuts played a big part in this too. Most juts didn't have the skills back then. But they've hugely benefited from the kirpa of these nonjuts who taught them and gave them a sustainable living, which they passed on the wider jut community. That's one of the things that keeps the community strong in the UK. We need to build on all of this and create a strong, diverse, robust global Sikh economy now. Especially if other people's economies are going to falter through needless wars, demographic change and whatnot. Bhangra has been something that has bought its fair share of negative things to the panth too. People have slowly realised this in the last few decades. Previously our lot were mass-profiling like brainless, drunk oafs in the UK because of it. That's when outsiders originally came and took advantage with grooming. Fools were going to tonday with the "we're all the same - Panjabis!" vibe. Most of us with a brain have realised we need to be careful with it now. Previously, people turned the community into a joke from it. That's when you'd meet baharlay bundhay and they'd stick their fingers in the air clownishly going "balle - balle" like that is synonymous with Sikhs. We have to make sure the right messages are pushed out from it, and that it doesn't corrupt the community like before. It's not a joke thing.

    In the Uk dude, nonJut Sikhs gave Juts economic freedom by opening up the construction trade, and turning them from unskilled pendus, to skilled, semi-skilled workers. That's how the majority of faujis eat now, and send money back home. That's how many juts got their kids educated too (or bought Off Licences). That's why they don't have to rush into foreign armies because they are desperately skint from farming anymore. You know that's true! lol And hip hop fusion things been around for years. Look at Bally Sagoo and PMC. First point of mass contact working class goray had here with skilled workers were nonJuts. Who made a great reputation for themselves with their hard work and skills - that still stands. A good example of a nonJut who pushed and escalated Sikhi in East London is Sant Isher Singh Ji. He came here and did parchaar to all, including Juts in the late 70s when the community was just getting on their feet and under attack too. And he didn't do it when the panth was in a position to fill up the golak, like now. He did it from the heart and soul. Now tell me that the original bhangra scene here wasn't the starting point of girls getting plastered, and tonday going to them to groom and abuse them. Any excuse to go bwaaah bwaahh with you pendus. lol

    Reading this it stands out that the woman is not happy with the activities of her lover. She sees the danger in his work and the risks he takes. She devises a plan to end his activities/career of risk and take him away from that path. She is not doing entirely for his benefit though. She loves him greatly and sees her own ruin in his potential misfortunes. So she devises a plan so he gets the wealth he needs and doesn't have to take risks any more. So she is ensuring her own survival by doing so. At the end the charitar ends with the peoples belief that the woman was unable to cope with the loss of their wealth and thus became a sadhvi in the jungle.

    No taboos like that for me. It's respectful to learn from history, explore it open mindedly. It's narrow minded approaches that shaft us. I don't know about Mai Bhago to any great depth. Any apna or apnee claiming to have knowledge like they were 'on the ground' and witnessed things themselves is obviously retarded as well.

You are a wolf, trying in covering yourself with the skin of a lion. You are just the perfect example of a popular saying, which says: Howsoever a monkey may dress itself with silk, yet monkey it remains.

    Sakhi of Baba Nand Singh Ji , Baba Ishar Singh Ji and Darshan of Padam Charna vich padam hai sohna jo duniya nu thare|| Once upon a time Baba Ji were in the sewa of Vade Baba Ji, Baba Nand Singh Ji. One day a thought arose in Baba Jis mind that avtars have a padam in their feet, but he hasn’t seen a padam in feet of Baba Nand Singh Ji yet. This thought remained in Baba Jis mind for a long time. One night , it was around midnight, and Baba Nand Singh ji were established in their asana. Baba Ishar Singh ji were standing outside in door in sewa. At that time a great light arose in room. There was no lantern inside. When Baba Ji went inside to see what was going, he saw light rays emanating from the feet of Baba Nand Singh ji . He realized it was the parkash of padam and felt very happy at that time. The thought of mind was satisfied. Next day Baba Nand Singh ji were doing bachan with rattan singh. Vade Baba Ji said, “It is written in granths that avtars have padam in their feet, they have long arms, they don’t have knots in fingers. If these signs of Guru Nanak could be seen then why would Mehta kalu ji slap guru nanak. Why would people call him kurahia or why would people throw stones. Why would rukdin grab that feet containing padam and throw it around. Therefore, Arms are long in a way that they have wrapped whole world in their arms, and they do not have the knots of jealousy in their minds. Only people who have shardha, devotion, love, prem are able to see the padam”. Baba Ishar Singh Ji were standing closeby and listening to Bachans of Baba Nand Singh Ji. Baba Ji realized how vade baba ji were answering their questions without being asked. From that day onwards, Baba ji did sewa of vade baba ji with even more faith and devotion.

    Is Naam The Anahad Naad?

    Totally agree. Because there is no one single definition to describe naam, shabad and naad,.. they are sometimes used interchangeably. You have to experience it for yourself and you will know when ''Naam'' begins to get pargat and then how you start getting attuned to it. A simple way of helping yourself to understand it is to think of the naad, shabad, oung....as being a vibration- just like everything else in the Universe. As per physics; we know that to graph a vibrational wave with peaks and troughs, there is always some source or origin where it begins or originates from.....and if we eliminate this source of origin, then the vibrational wave ceases to exist. A wave of vibration, as we understand is also what connects the source of origin to the receiver/perceiver. ....bearing this mind, I like to think of - -Naam as being the source of origin... or the infinite/unknown. aad jugadh, ajuni source -Naad or shabad as being the vibrational wave that is active in all of creation.... this is analogous to a sound wave, but not like the one's on this physical plane where they diminish in amplitude over a distance. The NAAM is continuous and is not affected by any resistive forces. As per anand sahib....'Naam jin kai mann vasia, vajey shabad ganerey''....... the Naam becomes pargat or manifests when one hears/feels the shabad vibrating within the mind. This goes on 24/7. If it's not 24/7, then it is not pargat yet. We could also say that one begins to get taste and feel this naam state of mind by connecting with the shabad/naad Getting back to the OP question ''Is Naam the Anhad Naad?"...... Well, anhad naad is a form of the naam or a manner in which one experiences naam. Strictly speaking, it's impossible to configure or describe in words unless one begins to experience it through naam kamayee. And all abyasees will tell you the same. You will also understand that Naam is not something that can be initiated by master whispering into initiates ear.. .as sometimes understood by some Naam is also not inured or obtained in amrit sanchar either We have to earn all of these with free will and efforts (Kamayee)

    Is My Parakh Going On ?

    Dear Veer, I am sorry to hear about the difficult times you are going through in your life and may Waheguru bless you with good times away from the troubles of day to day life. Like yourself my life is also going through some difficult times and like you I also question, why me? Am I being tested? Even my own mother will ring me up and tell me I'm having an examination from Waheguru and to be honest I don't find those kind of remarks very consoling. Why this parakh/examination? Are they saying the problems we are going through are temporary and waheguru will eventually have pity and wave a magic wand and they will be taken away or are we being tested whether we accept the bad times and remember him. It is only natural when no one else can help you that one turns to the Creator because the only hope left for anyone is him and his prayer. It is easier if one is already doing some kind prayer before hand otherwise people can really drown in all the pain and suffering. I was listening to a mahapursh only a few days ago he said something that sparked a light within me when I too was drowning in this life and finding it all too difficult to deal with and cope. The worry, stress and difficulties I was going through were starting to take there toll on my own health and I could see myself going downhill. I will share his teaching with you hoping that it sheds some light in your path in the times of darkness. He said when we wake up in the morning we can choose what clothes we want to wear. One item of clothing is Sukh and the other is Dukh. These are not clothes in the literal sense but clothes we choose to put on our mind. We can either let our mind run free and be engulfed in all the day to day troubles, stresses, worries, anxieties hence wearing the kapra of dukh, or we can bring the mind into some control and focus it on the remembrance of Waheguru. Therefore not giving it time to be occupied by negative thoughts which cause us problems. By dedicating more time to this marg your mind will be given less time to be affected by the troubles and with guru's grace they won't seem so bad and you will sail through these trying times. That is the key difference between a Gurmukh and a Manmukh. I then took it one step further a did a search for the word "dukh" in Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji and you will see the same guidance coming through. Below are a few pangti's that emphasize this very approach. I hope it helps you dear brother. hukmee utam neech hukam likh dukh sukh paa-ee-ah. By His Command, some are high and some are low; by His Written Command, pain and pleasure are obtained. gaavee-ai sunee-ai man rakhee-ai bhaa-o.
