    Waheguru ! No one should be abusing anyone. These things don’t look good on the front page of a Sikh platform. I don’t know the inside story. By abusing others we are only doing damage to ourselves mentally and physically. Krodh is a very tricky vice, it can attack unexpectedly. External situations should not influence one’s internal state.

    Oh no penji lol Thats good you are doing better. I also have a sore throat since 3-4 days but Maharaj is doing kirpa and it will get better. As per Bhai Simranjeet Singh Tohana, saas giras increases Brahma Agni and that builds up our immunity. He posted a video regarding this. But given my sore throat I have been unable to follow this

    It's a loaded 'question' veerji. Doesn't deserve an answer from you. The provocateur is not interested in any answer.It's aim is to prove there's no such word as 'Sikh' and we all are hindus. He tried this same trick in the Namdhari thread. You can show it all the sources and proof but it will not accept as only it is true and we all are fools. Just a heads up for you veerji.

    Veer ji you could try the youtube page for Basics Of Sikhi and Gurmatbibek to find out as i do remember the Late Bhai Jugraj Singh Ji did cover a lot of these questions in his videos.

    I'm okay bhai ji. I had 'experiences' when I was younger that sort of make lock downs no problem for me. lol It's a good idea to pick something and develop your skills in the time you are locked down - not least of all for your sanity. Try and make it a productive time. It doesn't have to be all negative. Do more training (or start if you don't), try some new stuff like yoga/stretching/recipes. If you are lucky to have a garden - use it. Keep your head up!!

    Yes it is a meme of Corona virus. And you query of my whereabout, well bro, I am in the same boat as rest of the world, which means cofined at home, which is necessary for one's security, as well as for our family members at home. We need a lot of patience and mentalization to go through this difficult phase, which by His grace shall hopefully pass away too. Hope you are fine also. SSA.

    I think we should differentiate between having a desire for someone else's women, and having a desire for your own spouse. To equate the two is a big error in my opinion. Thing with marriage is that it is a two way thing. It's all well and good if one side wants to be a celibate, but what if the other half doesn't? Is it fair to spring such majorly life changing things on another unexpected? Plus, bhai ji, since I read DG and learnt that Ramchandar Ji may have started the conflict by chopping off Ravan's sister's nose, when she flirted with him, I've always been a bit reserved on perceiving Ravan as some 'bad guy' in some binary style conception i.e. Ramchandar = Good; Ravan = Bad. I agree that kaam vaasna is one of the strongest (if not thee strongest!) vikaars though.

    Getting Darshan of a Brahmgyani.

    If anyone does bachan with Abhyasi(s), how much bhagti did they do to get darshan of a Sachkhandvasi Brahmgyani. In reality, is it extremely difficult or moderately difficult?
  16. 1 point
    Getting darshan of a puran bramgyani is really really difficult as its hard to find in this kalyug with so many artificial sant baba that its hard to even spot a karnai wale sant. But a puran bramgyani do exist but they stay gupt and its hard to find one. 2nd is the sevadars they are like dictators as they only like rich influental people to vist and give them more access to mahapursh compared to normal sangat whom they don't respect at all which can be seen in ithasic historical gurdwara sahibs in india. Also as mentioned its based on ones karams and bhagati levels that ones gets a chance to meet a mahapursh. Another difficult task to get kamai of a mahapurshs bachan as that is not easy. I have heard in katha about how abhyasis who stand in the line when waiting to see a mahapursh. The mahapursh can see the aura of the gurmukh and do call them over from the line whilst waiting. I have met and heard saakhis of how people i know through my parents family have had darshan and bachan with Sant Baba Isher Singh Ji Rara Sahib, Baba Puran Singh Ji Kerchio Wale,Baba Mihan Singh Ji, Sant Harnam Singh Ji Rampur Khera Wale, Baba Isher Singh Ji Nanaksar etc.

    Getting Darshan of a Brahmgyani.

    Yeah, I understand now. Darshan is gifted, not taken by force. We can obtain their darshan, only with their kirpa alone. They do give guidance to true seekers. Heavy karmic load plays a big part, and the only way that can be eradicated is through Naam di kamaayi. I think what you're trying to get at is standing ground rigidly with complete faith, in every stage of the Naam Abhyasi Jeevan. All things rest upon Gurparsad.

    Akal Ustat Katha

    @Ragmaalaveer ji thats really nice to hear i do wish i could do sehaj paath but at the moment i am bit stuck as i can't read or write in Punjabi. All of my banis that i have done so far which i never dreamed of are in english roman text which took me many hours ,months to learn using audio tracks from panj bani nitnem to other recent dasam banis mentioned on here. Its really good and i do wish you chardikala and kirpa for the sehaj paath as its a really good step. I used to use my phone gutka app when i was learning back over 5 years ago then began using samsung tablet which i wish i didn't use now as that wrecked my health due to me developing migraines,eye number sight changing due to it. So i nowdays i have got a magnifer for the banis and a custom made print of the banis in large size fonts english roman print. Veer ji reading your posts have given me a lot of boost and inspiration as its only 2 angs a day but its cos of the punjabi reading issue i can't at the moment but i hope one day i will as i am planning to learn punjabi starting this week.

    One day someone throws a stone at you and hits you with the stone. You ask yourself, “who am I angry with?” You are quick to respond, “I am angry at that person” However, it was the stone that hit you… not the person. Why aren’t you angry at the stone? You think, “I’m not angry with the stone because the stone had no intention to hit me. The stone is an inanimate object that was thrown by a person. So I am angry at that person”. Using that logic, you shouldn’t be angry at the person. You should be angry at their pain. … Because the person is just like the stone. Helplessly thrown by their pain.

    @Soulfinder So taking inspiration from this thread, I had an idea why not start a sehaj path. So I have started reading of Sri Dasam Granth Sahib ji on ipad with a sooksham ardas. And planning to do an hr of reading everyday hopefully . Just finished 28 angs , which includes about halfway of Akal Ustat. Maharaj is jaani jaan and will forgive this keet for any mistakes. I am no one to do anything. I am not this body and not this mind, Maharaj gave the furna and maharaj will make it happen to forgive my countless and innumerable Sins.

    Timeless Wisdom

    SOME INSPIRITATIONAL STUFF Look around today and you will see everyone in a desperate and helpless situation. In a few weeks time everything has changed around us and we have returned to our some old habits. Sitting at home, avoiding going out, spending wisely and even being more concerned about our loved ones. How true are the Mahapurukhs words when they say this world is not our true home but a exit from the cycle of births and deaths. This is our opportunity to make the most of the human birth and its purpose. In today's time while most of us are caged in our homes we can only use our time wisely to put into practice Gurmat. How can we not complain today that I don't have time! Time has become our gift of today, we have slowed and stopped all other activities. So its Gods way of saying, "Let go and let be." Everything happens for a reason and we cannot understand with our limited perspective of today's situation around the globe. It's His creation, His ways and His will. All we can do is to accept and live in His will. Today our finances, work, power or even fame cannot help us..so what is the use? Does it bring happiness to us if we cannot do anything? How fools we were to think that we are something... We are Nothing! All we can do is surrender ourselves, and only humility is the result of self surrender. It happens automatically when you come into the presence of divine love; you suddenly realise that you are nothing. When we give to Guru Jee our "whole self" we are left only with His love... And that love fills our emptiness through His simran. The more Simran we do, the more love grows, and with our effort, true effort, grace flows. Let us be His devoted gursikhs, by meditating upon His Nao as repeated throughout and continoussly in the Gurbani. Our Father Waheguru Akal Purukh is always with us. If we live, move and have our being in Him . He is always helping in every kind of task that we perform. The nearer we come to Him, the more fully we will feel His presence and realize His help. As love for Him increases in us, we will get a deeper and deeper realization of His presence within ourselves SSA.

    Learning to read in Punjabi will make me feel a hell of alot better especially as dass like mahapurshs jeevan books which is best to be enjoyed in punjabi as a lot of the english translated books don't have the same ras flow compared to hearing it in punjabi the original texts. All of these new youtube english speakers like Nanak Naam Bhai Satpal Singh make me fall asleep less than a minute as its not a language english i can connect to.

    If we don't follow shaster/ashter aspects of our dharam, expect more of this. Even if we do what I'm suggesting, we'll still have this, the only difference will be the opportunity to die like men and not sitting, pacifist ducks.

    Good idea: I knocked this up years ago, but it looks like some of the links have become stubs since. Maybe we should break down and work through that Panjabi Primer? I've got shyte loads of assignments to do, but maybe we can squeeze that in lesson by lesson? It's not only that, if we have another war, or a pandemic out there, the number of people who are literate in Gurmukhi will decrease, we need to keep numbers up in preparation for this.

    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,

    They are okay bhai ji. The nice weather means I can do my simran in the garden. I've got so many assignments to do for this course I'm on, that I have plenty to do. I think I will also try and bang out some brief translations here just to give me a break from all the assignments. You are right bhai ji, need to up the bhagti. Now is the perfect time for it. The current situation does make you reflect on Mahakaal. I feel okay in that respect. If Akaal Purakh calls me back, I'll be cool. But that doesn't mean I'm going to take any silly risks that might get me infected though. It's very important that people keep themselves physically and mentally active in times like these!

    Timeless Wisdom

    Great message from Bill Gates. Subject: Bill Gate's views on the CVirus....Brilliant. What is the Corona/ Covid-19 Virus Really Teaching us? I’m a strong believer that there is a spiritual purpose behind everything that happens, whether that is what we perceive as being good or being bad. As I meditate upon this, I want to share with you what I feel the Corona/ Covid-19 virus is really doing to us: - It is reminding us that we are all equal, regardless of our culture, religion, occupation, financial situation or how famous we are. This disease treats us all equally, perhaps we should to. If you don’t believe me, just ask Tom Hanks. - It is reminding us that we are all connected and something that affects one person has an effect on another. It is reminding us that the false borders that we have put up have little value as this virus does not need a passport. It is reminding us, by oppressing us for a short time, of those in this world whose whole life is spent in oppression. - It is reminding us of how precious our health is and how we have moved to neglect it through eating nutrient poor manufactured food and drinking water that is contaminated with chemicals upon chemicals. If we don’t look after our health, we will, of course, get sick. - It is reminding us of the shortness of life and of what is most important for us to do, which is to help each other, especially those who are old or sick. Our purpose is not to buy toilet roll. - It is reminding us of how materialistic our society has become and how, when in times of difficulty, we remember that it’s the essentials that we need (food, water, medicine) as opposed to the luxuries that we sometimes unnecessarily give value to. - It is reminding us of how important our family and home life is and how much we have neglected this. It is forcing us back into our houses so we can rebuild them into our home and to strengthen our family unit. - It is reminding us that our true work is not our job, that is what we do, not what we were created to do. Our true work is to look after each other, to protect each other and to be of benefit to one another. - It is reminding us to keep our egos in check. It is reminding us that no matter how great we think we are or how great others think we are, a virus can bring our world to a standstill. - It is reminding us that the power of freewill is in our hands. We can choose to cooperate and help each other, to share, to give, to help and to support each other or we can choose to be selfish, to hoard, to look after only our self. Indeed, it is difficulties that bring out our true colors. - It is reminding us that we can be patient, or we can panic. We can either understand that this type of situation has happened many times before in history and will pass, or we can panic and see it as the end of the world and, consequently, cause ourselves more harm than good. - It is reminding us that this can either be an end or a new beginning. This can be a time of reflection and understanding, where we learn from our mistakes, or it can be the start of a cycle which will continue until we finally learn the lesson we are meant to. - It is reminding us that this Earth is sick. It is reminding us that we need to look at the rate of deforestation just as urgently as we look at the speed at which toilet rolls are disappearing off of shelves. We are sick because our home is sick. - It is reminding us that after every difficulty, there is always ease. Life is cyclical, and this is just a phase in this great cycle. We do not need to panic; this too shall pass. Whereas many see the Corona/ Covid-19 virus as a great disaster, I prefer to see it as a great corrector. It is sent to remind us of the important lessons that we seem to have forgotten and it is up to us if we will learn them or not.

    My Sankalpa

    Best of luck bhaji, may God bless you and your family. Raab tuhade sir te hath rakh ke tuhade too path karvave. Let me request you the following that I've learnt personally. I'm NOT suggesting you anything. Just merely stating what have been instructed by many Sants and Mahatamas. Do Mool-mantar till "Nanak Hose Bhe Sach". Try doing 6 malas everyday of 108 beads for One Full Year. It will roughly be 236520. Do NOT miss a day. Nice to have: Would be great if you could do it, otherwise it's okay. If possible, make sure that you do your mala each day on the same time and same place. If possible, use the mala 108 + 1 (Meru bead: It is the quiding bead, the one that marks the beginning and end of the mala.) beads. The following is NOT suggested by Sant (I haven't heard), but based upon the facts that these malas were extensively used in the past and special significance of wool in energy. If possible, use the mala made of white wool.
