    You are welcome.. lemme know if I could be of any help . Cause we have senior abhiyaasi members here on the forum- you can read their posts to get the necessary boost and knowledge and ask them things personally too Sat veerji, lucky veerji, Bhagat Singh ji, his servant, Tva prasad veerji are major jewels ( pls forgive me if I have forgotten anyone) who can answer your questions then Sajjan thug ji, raganorak, neo and deniro are those quiet ones but ofcourse at Gupt higher levels. .. Dalsingh and chatanga veerji are different level scholars And me, still nascent ji, jaikara veerji, jageera ji, soulfinder veerji, , sukhpreet, mahanpapi ji, harsharan ji, kaju etc are all walking on these paths on our own journeys at followers level- seeking struggling, searching- holding hands of each other and arguing at times. ((Pls forgive me but that's my personal account of this forum)) Welcome to this world of sangat

    my background is from nearby area of Rara Sahib. My mom must had darshan of baba ji many times for sure as my maasi tells me she attended Sant ji's diwans many times. I always visit rara sahib to pay my respects whenever i visit india. I must have had darshan of Sant Baba Kishan Singh Ji, i remember once i was very unwell and mum took me to Rara Sahib. I was very young but do remember it was Baba ji sitting on the chair and the sangat was sitting around them on the floor. My mom told Baba ji about me but don't remember exactly what Baba ji said.

    @Kaur1510bhen ji here is a book which really changed my life when i was a teenager and would highly recommend it as was the best mahapursh book i read at the time Upon waking up early in the morning and opening our eyes, we should repeat "Dhan Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji" five times, before proceeding to perform anything else. This will ensure that we will always be in correct frequency with Guru Ji, similar to a bulb connected to the powerline. Our centre or powerhouse is the Lord. https://www.gurukhoj.com/SBNS2_DMROG2.html

    Nice one brother. It's one of those small but monumental things. We will free our own and our brothers and sisters minds of insidious outside influences that seek to psychologically, politically and culturally subordinate us in a most devious way.

    Some strange noises

    I had a weird experience that I wanted to share, maybe someone had something similar and can shed some light on it. Some background info, I have been going to waheguru japa sessions at a local gurudwara regularly in the last week, and have been actively listening utube videos regarding naam simran. Todays morning session felt more relaxing and peaceful than usual, and as the tabla was playing I felt the vibrations in my spine which were pleasant. Usually i get sleepy but today I didnt feel sleepy at all but felt very refreshed. So I came home and took a nap. When i was sleeping i became aware that I am dreaming. i cant recall the dreams. What I remember is that i started hearing combination of sounds some of which i cant recall. Sounds were a combination of ringing, machine vibrating, crickets, and electronic type sounds hard to explain. I started focusing on these and they kept getting loud and loud to a point where I got scared and uncomfortable. Then I realized my body was paralysed and I couldn’t move at all. That was scary. I started to shake myself off and was eventually able to wake up. its been 2 hours now. i can still hear a very mild hint of some ringing type sounds. Has anyone had something similar happened to them while sleeping ? Thanks,

    New Jathedar is Baba Maan Singh Ji Budha Dal. There is no conspiracy behind the accident. Many who were close with Baba Ji knew Baba Ji was preparing the Sangat that he was leaving.

    Oh ok.And during 1984 and other attacks against minorities.What about that?What about the indian army using rape as a weapon?I will call you people whatever i see fit,the same way you labeled me and everyone against you a dhimmi. Are you retarded or are you trolling me? It is discrimination as it does not give citizenship to Muslims fleeing persecution.It is hindu supremacism because it fulfills and satisfy the hatred and bloodlust hindus have against muslims and other minorities. It is an attempt by hindus to humiliate muslims and rally support of the saffron monkey brigade to support the politicians alligned with this madness.

    @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. Meditate on the Lord's Name; embrace and enshrine the contemplative remembrance of the Naam. ਸਤਿਗੁਰੁ ਗੁਰੁ ਪੂਰਾ ਆਰਾਧਹੁ ਸਭਿ ਕਿਲਵਿਖ ਪਾਪ ਗਵਾਇਆ ॥ satgur gur pooraa aaraaDhahu sabh kilvikh paap gavaa-i-aa.

The Lord God, my Lord and Master, blends with His bride, and her heart blossoms forth in the Naam. ਜਨੁ ਨਾਨਕੁ ਬੋਲੇ ਚਉਥੀ ਲਾਵੈ ਹਰਿ ਪਾਇਆ ਪ੍ਰਭੁ ਅਵਿਨਾਸੀ ॥੪॥੨॥ jan naanak bolay cha-uthee laavai har paa-i-aa parabh avinaasee. ((4)(2)) Servant Nanak proclaims that, in this, the fourth round of the marriage ceremony, we have found the Eternal Lord God.

    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.

    how to remain still in one asan for 3 hrs ?

    You don't. Love can never be developed, so don't ever fool yourself into just thinking about what love is. The only way the real prem will sprout, is when you sit down and jap Nirankar's name with absolutely NO conditions.....Just sacrifice and offer yourself to him "tera, tera, tera ..." ... you have to make efforts and changes to do this. After that, it becomes effortless and God will let you know.

    Is Naam The Anahad Naad?

    I know there are so many questions. My easiest piece of advice would be to start doing regular simran with waheguru jap. Ideally most of us that speak on here have started with the saas graas and saas saas jugtees(techniques) It really doesn't matter what technique you use as long as you get to that internal discipline of steadying your mind(from jumping to thoughts) and japping internally with the mind. Eventually;-(if you already haven't)..you will begin to fall in love with the waheguru gurmantar. Whilst doing this it is important to be listening, listening and listening...to just listen to yourself inside doing the jap. It is when you start listening to your sukham(subtle) self whilst doing jap...that waheguru begins to manifest within.

    Is Naam The Anahad Naad?

    Gurbani explains to us perfectly what is Shabad//Panch Shabad/Sehaj Dhune/Sacha Shabad/Toor/Naad - all refer to Naam (different forms). Āsā mėhlā 5. Aasaa, Fifth Mehl: Uḏam karaṯ hovai man nirmal nācẖai āp nivāre. Making the effort, the mind becomes pure; in this dance, the self is silenced.

    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)

    I am coming back to this forum after a long while. Reading the inspirational posts under Meditation section re-sparked my interest again. I still am not able to sit still physically more than 20 minutes but it doesn;t matter to me anymore. I am surprised how much my thinking has changed. Asana Siddhi will come sponatneously. When surat leaves the body and goes into shabad I think Asana Siddhi wil happen itself. Until then I should just keep japping till i die.

    With Guru's grace I think I had a first experience of jaap entering the heart (wondering if this is what is meant by jaap in the hirda). With Guru's kirpa on most occasions the jaap travels between the Navel and my chest in an up and down motion as I breath. Was given bit of an extra push and it entered the heart literally on the left side. All of a sudden I could feel my heart pumping really strong as if I was having some kind of heart attack. The heart beat became totally synchronised with the jaap, to the point I couldn't recite jaap verbally anymore and became too aware of the heart pumping like it was going to explode. It wanted to speed up the jaap but I slowed my breathing down and the sensation began to reside. I must admit the first time these new sensation takes place it can totally shake you because one has never experienced them before.

    Guys I have discovered something recently which has cleared all my doubts regarding diversity of techniques, basically don't look it as different techniques or be confused about it but look at it rather as different techniques at different stages towards vahiguroo-atma-paratma based on each individual state of mind. Please see read the post below- especially attachment from bhannu parkash by sant jagjit singh ji harkhowal: According to traditional gurmat, there are three types of students as such- intial updesh in Gurbani is addressed to three types of students where gurbani updesh is given(via hakumnama, mahapursh-sadh sangat etc) accordingly to based on student state of mind, based on student depth. There are ways to finding your state of mind/clear doubts one has- one of most recommended way- one is being in sadh sangat (soceity of saints) which gurbani emphasizes over and over again because one may not see their road blocks but in sadh sangat- soceity of saints those road blocks- doubts/sansa could be cleared and 2nd it gives one reality check of ego all the time being in sadh sangat as mere mortals can really fall a trap of ego. Gurbani is agam agad bodh, its fully connected with our human consciousness, it talks to individual in many ways- some time outright slap via hakumnama, sometime through ishara/very subtle way via hakumnama/mahapursh katha/updesh..so at the end, its the student duty to decipher updesh from gurbani given to them blunt or sutble..sadh sangat or in sangat of mahapursh is also recommended as per gurbani, so they can further guide the student or alternatively, student can also honestly self reflect and grade themselves. Bhai Gurdas Ji talks about: Vaar 7 - Pauri 3 (Tin di ginati-gurmukh) Brahama Bisanu Mahesu trai bk ved gun gian langhae. Bhut bhavikhahu varatamanu adi madhi jini anti sidhae. Man bach karam ikatr kari jamman maran jivan jini de. Adhi biadhi upddhi sadhi surag mirat pdtal nivae. Utamu madham nich sadhi balak joban biradhi jinae. Ira pingula sukhamand trikuti langhi tribeni nhae. Gurmukhi ika mani iku dhiae. Also Sant Maharaj Baba Isher Singh Ji Rara sahib wale along with damdami taksal jathedars also talks about three types of student: source: Ishvar Amalok Lal (personal dairy of sant isher singh ji rara sahib and also see-japji sahib audio katha by gyani thakur singh ji) 1. Kanishtt Bhajneek (ਕਨਿਸ਼ਟ ਭਜਨੀਕ) - Those who cannot concentrate their minds during paath or meditation are called Kanishtt (Low-level). Still, they are much better than those who do not take any initative at all. 2. Maddham Bhajneek (ਮੱਧਮ ਭਜਨੀਕ) - They try to control their minds during worship. Sometimes they are successful at it. 3. Uttam Bhajneek (ਉੱਤਮ ਭਜਨੀਕ) - Their minds settles down well during meditation/worship. They are able to find peace. In layman terms consider kanisth student as - beginner, madham jaigaso- intermediate and utam jaigaso- advanced. As there are three types of students, and there are various updesh in gurbani addressed to three types of students, when it comes naam simran, there are also similar classification. Please see-attached

    How happy i am to find you people..........only you can understand. I have started hearing anhad shabad from past 8 days.Since then i am constantly doing research on it.I have not shared this with anyone.I live in Mohali,punjab.I have no one who can understand me because i am not a true sikh.I dont have turban.i got my hair cut at age of 12.I am 23 years old now.so far i have read it happens because of guru's kirpa.So i dont understand why he did kirpa on me.All this started few months back when i just wanted to do meditation because of many reasons which i cannot share.But i dint know how to meditate...i just knew we have keep our mind empty.then i came across chakras and started to meditate on mooldhar,ajna and sahasara and then stopped it because it didnt meant anything.but from past one month i have been doing simran.I leared about it that we have to do it mentally...I dont know when and how it became a passion of my life and i was doing waheguru waheguru mentally all the time and i felt very good.It came to extent that while listening songs i was thinking of waheguru in that tune.And then around 8 days back a noise started to come in my ears and it started distracting my simran and i had to open my eyes slowly it went away....but after that it came back ..this time not very loud....i decided to do simran again....it became very loud again...Then i found that this is Anhad naad.I was stunned. I could hear it if i concentrated. I am amazed i dont read gurbani.Around one moth back i didnt beleived in god.and now i beleive in nothing else than him.This feels like i am mad i dont want to do anything else simran now.It was a sigh of releif to find you.But sometimes i start questioning my self that do i deserve it beacuse my whole i have been making mockery of god and thought that religious people are wasting there lifes.

    More enlightening guiding pangit's from Guru Arjan Dev Ji. Ang 577 I am a sacrifice to those who listen with their ears to the Lord God. tin ghol ghumaa-ee jin parabh sarvanee suni-aa raam. Blissful and comfortable are those, who with their tongues chant the Name of the Lord, Har, Har. say sahj suhaylay jin har har rasnaa bhani-aa raam. God`s Feet are the boat, which carries so many across the terrifying world-ocean. <Feet refer to Naam being the boat here> bhai bohith saagar parabh charnaa kaytay paar laghaa-ay. Those who are blessed with the favor of my Lord and Master, are not asked to render their account. jin kaN-u kirpaa karee mayrai thaakur tin kaa laykhaa na gani-aa. Says Nanak, I am a sacrifice to those who listen to God with their ears. kaho naanak tis ghol ghumaa-ee jin parabh sarvanee suni-aa. With my eyes, I have seen the Light of the Lord, but my great thirst is not quenched. lo-in lo-ee dith pi-aas na bujhai moo ghanee. O Nanak, those eyes are different, which behold my Husband Lord. naanak say akh-rhee-aaN bi-ann jinee disando maa piree. Pain is eliminated and doubt is dispelled from the body; chanting the Name of the Lord of the World, their victory is celebrated. dukh naas bharam binaas tan tay jap jagdees eesah jai ja-ay. They are rid of emotional attachment, their sins are erased, and their association with the five passions is broken off. moh rahat bikaar thaakay panch tay sang tootaa. Ang 578 Those who long for the Lord, are said to be His servants. jo lorheeday raam sayvak say-ee kaaNdhi-aa. Nanak knows this Truth, that the Lord is not different from His Saint. naanak jaanay sat saaN-ee sant na baahraa. As water mixes and blends with water, mil jal jaleh khataanaa raam. so does one`s light mix and blend with the Lord`s Light. sang jotee jot milaanaa raam. Merging with the perfect, all-powerful Creator, one comes to know his own self. sammaa-ay pooran purakh kartay aap aapeh jaanee-ai. Then, he enters the celestial state of absolute Sunn, Sahj, Samaadhi, and speaks of the One and Only Lord. tah sunn sahj samaaDh laagee ayk ayk vakhaanee-ai. He Himself is unmanifest, and He Himself is liberated; He Himself speaks of Himself. aap guptaa aap muktaa aap aap vakhaanaa. O Nanak, doubt, fear and the limitations of the three qualities (Tamo, Rajo and Sata) are dispelled, as one merges into the Lord, like water blending with water. naanak bharam bhai gun binaasay mil jal jaleh khataanaa. Renouncing egotism, emotional attachment and all corruption, we become pleasing to the Mind of God. taj maan moh vikaar saglay parabhoo kai man bhaa-ee-ai. Prays Nanak, day and night, meditate forever on the Lord, Har, Har. binvant naanak dinas rainee sadaa har har Dhi-aa-ee-ai. At the Lord`s Door, the unstruck melody resounds. dar vaajeh anhat vaajay raam. In each and every heart, the Lord, the Lord of the Universe, sings. ghat ghat har gobind gaajay raam. The Lord of the Universe sings, and abides forever; He is unfathomable, profoundly deep, lofty and exalted. govid gaajay sadaa biraajay agam agochar oochaa. Prays Nanak, happiness comes from devotional worship of the Naam; at His Door, the unstruck melody resounds. binvant naanak sukh naam bhagtee dar vajeh anhad vaajay.

    Beautiful guidance by Sri Guru Ram Das Ji on ang 573 I go and ask, I go and ask from the True Guru, about the sermon of the Lord. ham poochhah ham poochhah satgur paas har baataa raam. I ask about the sermon of the Lord from the True Guru, who has obtained the treasure of the Naam. satgur paas har baat poochhah jin naam padaarath paa-i-aa. I bow at His Feet constantly, and pray to Him; the Guru, the True Guru, has shown me the Way. paa-ay lagah nit karah binantee gur satgur panth bataa-i-aa. He alone is a devotee, who looks alike upon pleasure and pain and is imbued with the Name of the Lord, Har, Har. so-ee bhagat dukh sukh samat kar jaanai har har naam har raataa. Listen as Gurmukh, listen as Gurmukh, to the Naam, the Name of the Lord; all egotism and sins are eradicated. sun gurmukh sun gurmukh naam sabh binsay haN-umai paapaa raam. Chanting the Name of the Lord, Har, Har, chanting the Name of the Lord, Har, Har, the troubles of the world vanish. jap har har jap har har naam lathi-arhay jag taapaa raam. Listen as Gurmukh, listen as Gurmukh, to the Naam to the Name of the Lord; all egotism and sins are eradicated. sun gurmukh sun gurmukh naam sabh binsay haN-umai paapaa. ||2|| Chanting the Name of the Lord, Har, Har, chanting the Name of the Lord, Har, Har, is so pleasing to my mind. jap har har jap har har naam mayrai man bhaa-i-aa raam. As Gurmukh, chanting the Naam, all disease is eradicated, and the body becomes free of disease. gurmukh jap sabh rog gavaa-i-aa arogat bha-ay sareeraa. Night and day, one remains absorbed in the Perfect Poise of Sahj Samaadhi; meditate on the Name of the Lord, the inaccessible and unfathomable Lord. an-din sahj samaaDh har laagee har japi-aa gahir gambheeraa. Grant Your Grace, grant Your Grace, O Lord, and save me. har Dhaarahu har Dhaarahu kirpaa kar kirpaa layho ubaaray raam. I am a sinner, I am a worthless sinner, I am meek, but I am Yours, O Lord. ham paapee ham paapee nirgun deen tumHaaray raam. I am a worthless sinner, and I am meek, but I am Yours; I seek Your Sanctuary, O Merciful Lord. ham paapee nirgun deen tumHaaray har dai-aal sarnaa-i-aa. Meeting the True Guru, servant Nanak has obtained the subtle essence of the Lord; through the Naam, the Name of the Lord, he is saved. satgur bhayt raam ras paa-i-aa jan naanak naam uDhaaray.

    My simran has taken a battering this past week. Can't seem to knuckle down and focus. Think this was the reminder I needed... Sri Guru Arjan Dev Ji says on Ang 456 Ang 456 Make the effort, O very fortunate ones, and meditate on the Lord, the Lord King. udam karahu vadbhaageeho simrahu har har raa-ay. O Nanak, remembering Him in meditation, you shall obtain total peace, and your pains and troubles and doubts shall depart. naanak jis simrat sabh sukh hoveh dookh darad bharam jaa-ay. Chant the Naam, the Name of the Lord of the Universe; don`t be lazy. naam japat gobind nah alsaa-ee-ai. With each and every breath, worship the Lord in adoration; meditate on the Lord God in your mind and with your mouth. (I think the reference to man mukhee refers to the mouth of the mind i.e. internally with sass sass) saas saas araaDh har har Dhi-aa-ay so parabh man mukhee. Prays Nanak: may I meditate on the Lord`s lotus feet, and not be lazy in chanting the Naam, the Name of the Lord of the Universe. ||1|| naanak pa-i-ampai charan jampai naam japat gobind nah alsaa-ee-ai. ||1|| The Purifier of sinners is the Naam, the Pure Name of the Immaculate Lord. paavan patit puneet naam niranjanaa. By the healing ointment of the Guru`s spiritual wisdom, one meets the Immaculate Lord God, who is totally pervading the water, the land and the sky. gur gi-aan anjan parabh niranjan jal thal mahee-al poori-aa. Wherever the Saints worship the Lord in adoration, there He is revealed. jah jah sant araaDheh tah tah paragtaa-i-aa. God blends Himself with His devotees in His natural way, and resolves their affairs. parabh aap lee-ay samaa-ay sahj subhaa-ay bhagat kaaraj saari-aa. In the ecstasy of the Lord`s Praises, they obtain supreme joy, and forget all their sorrows. aanand har jas mahaa mangal sarab dookh visaari-aa. Ang 458 The brilliant flash of the One Lord is revealed to them - they behold Him in the ten directions. chamatkaar pargaas dah dis ayk tah daristaa-i-aa. Prays Nanak, I meditate on the Lord`s lotus feet; the Lord is the Lover of His devotees; this is His natural way. naanak pa-i-ampai charan jampai bhagat vachhal har birad aap banaa-i-aa.

    If I close my eye's for an extended period of time a void begins to open up and I can see a kind of dark blue/purpleish background as opposed to pitch black. Not sure if that's just from light entering through the eye lids or its the colour of the agya charkra beginning to show itself. Anyone else willing to share their experiences or this is going to be a one person thread?

    Ways of doin Naam Simran....

    VAHIGUROO JI KA KHALSA VAHIGUROO JI KI FATEH!! khandaydhaar penji... i dont know ur intentions behind it but i would jus like to remind you of one thing.... when you took amrit from the akhand kirtani jatha and had naam dhridh, then no doubt you would also have been told that the gurmantar and its method should not be taught...i was told by the same jatha that if i did reveal it i would have to reappear before the punj and ask for forgiveness, as we can only encourage a veer or bhen ji to take khandey-di-pahul and we cannot tell of what goes on inside... if you knew this and disagree with it let me remind you that the punj pyaareh are your guru and disobeying them is not the way of a gursikh...if you feel that someone would benefot from your explanation then i would say that the greatest benefit you can give would be 2 encourage them to take amrit...not give the secret of gurmantar away especially since the punj pyaareh have commanded not to reveal it... a humble bentee to the moderators...could you pllease remove that from this post as it is something various jathebandee believe should be kept gupt...we are constantly reminded that what goes on in the amrit sanchaar is personal and shouldnt be discussed and i think that the maryada of a highly respected jathebandi should be respected... Chardi Kala! VAHIGUROO JI KA KHALSA VAHIGUROO JI KI FATEH!!
