    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.

    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.

    Veer ji this is really sad hearing about this as it made more worse due to them being illegal immigrants and how they were exploited by building contractors who made them work for free and refused to pay their wages which was way below the uk national minimum wage rate which is really disguisting. I have been to this area a few times but not a regular bases as its a bit far for me. I did see on the local gurdwara sahib how they went to the murder site and did ardas there in the evening day before yesterday on their facebook page.

    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.

    Quotes from AMRIT BANI

    Question 11: Guru Jee, I am a heavy sinner, how can I ever wash or end that my huge stock of sins? Guru Jee: ਦਾਝਿ ਗਏ ਤ੍ਰਿਣ ਪਾਪ ਸੁਮੇਰ ॥ ਜਪਿ ਜਪਿ ਨਾਮੁ ਪੂਜੇ ਪ੍ਰਭ ਪੈਰ ॥ Dhaajh Geae Thrin Paap Sumaer || Jap Jap Naam Poojae Prabh Pair || The mountain of sin is burnt down, like straw, by chanting and meditating on the Name, and worshipping God's feet. But the fools, ਮਾਇਆ ਮੋਹਿ ਬਿਆਪਿਆ ਧੋਹਿ ॥ ਕੁਦਮ ਕਰੈ ਗਾਡਰ ਜਿਉ ਛੇਲ ॥ Maaeiaa Mohi Biaapiaa Dhhohi || Kudham Karai Gaaddar Jio Shhael || Attached to Maya, are entangled in fraud and play like a baby lamb Then, ਅਚਿੰਤੁ ਜਾਲੁ ਕਾਲੁ ਚਕ੍ਰੁ ਪੇਲ ॥੧॥ Achinth Jaal Kaal Chakra Pael ||1|| suddenly, Death will catch them in its noose. ||1 SSA

    Triphala powder

    I got some triphala and various churans on a trip to Punjab. Generally it seemed good for gut health, but I found it to be very astrigent. I would probably take half a teaspoon every other day or every two days as you said.

    Confused about Kundalini /Rom Rom

    I firmly believe that there is no other technique more effective than navel activation for establishing rom rom. I never tried to put together the various mahapursh's guidance about Navel, to conclude it's significance.

    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. The breath is seated in the home of the navel; the Gurmukh searches, and finds the essence of reality. so sabad nirantar nij ghar aachhai taribhavan jot so sabad lahai. This Shabad permeates the nucleus of the self, deep within, in its own home; the Light of this Shabad pervades the three worlds. On Ang 223 there is references to Baramh Agan by Sri Guru Nanak Dev ji. This Baramh Agan is generated when one does intense jaap in a speedy manor. But if one doesn't know how to control this inner heat it can cause problems, slow best to stick to a slow steady pace unless under guidance of an experienced abhyaasi. nirbha-o jogee niranjan Dhi-aavai. The Yogis meditate on the Fearless, Immaculate Lord. an-din jaagai sach liv laavai. Night and day, they remain awake and aware, embracing love for the True Lord. so jogee mayrai man bhaavai. ||2|| Those Yogis are pleasing to my mind. ||2|| kaal jaal barahm agnee jaaray. The trap of death is burnt by the Fire of God.

    Confused about Kundalini /Rom Rom

    Thanks veer, I was looking for answer to my question as to which chakra to activate first, Trikuti or Mooldhaara. Is it best to start from bottom and keep moving upwards? I have the diary book of Sant Baba Isher Singh Ji in which he states Va sound from navel , He sound from heart, Gu sound from throat and R sound from trikuti for naam Simran. Does it mean we should start from navel , not the lowest chakra, the root chakra? Or would it be ok to activate the Navel/Sacral chakra first by concentrating Naam Simran on that part for months or years until the point of focus moves up? @Lucky, @Sat1176, @Soulfinder, @moorakh. Please gave your opinions.

    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,

    https://www.ndtv.com/india-news/caa-protest-in-up-etawah-on-camera-women-at-caa-protest-in-up-chased-thrashed-by-cops-2167825 Etawah: Women protesters are chased and caned by the Uttar Pradesh police, who also barge into shops and force them to shut, in mobile phone footage that has emerged from a protest in Etawah against the citizenship law on Tuesday. Video clips show the police chasing the women in the narrow lanes of Pachraha area and raining blows with their batons as they try to break up the protest. In a 17-second clip, the women can be heard shouting and asking the police why they are being assaulted. It is difficult to make out whether the cops hitting the women protestors are men or women, but police sources insist only women police personnel were tackling the women protestors. Other mobile phone clips show the police lathi-charging men who had gathered in the area. In one video, cops are seen entering a roadside eatery, hitting the employees inside and shutting it down forcibly. This is the respect indian police shows towards towards women. These creatures are lower than animals. Kanwardeep still want to try and defend your fascist government? Still want to deny atrocities towards women?

    kanwardeep if you want to blame others to be worse , post a bbc or cnn article here that has a chronology of heinous internationally known rape cases. india has its own rape timeline here.How proud you saffron monkeys must be: https://www.reuters.com/article/us-india-rape-factbox/statistics-on-rape-in-india-and-some-well-known-cases-idUSKBN1YA0UV Nov. 1973: Aruna Shanbaug, a 26-year-old nurse, is attacked by a ward attendant at a Mumbai hospital during her night shift. Sohanlal Bhartha Walmiki, who was later convicted and jailed, sodomized and strangled her with a dog chain - cutting off the oxygen supply to her brain and leaving her in a coma. Left in a vegetative state for more than 40 years, Shanbaug died in 2015. 1990: Hetal Parekh, a 14-year-old schoolgirl, is raped and murdered by Dhananjoy Chatterjee in Kolkata. Chatterjee is sentenced to death and hung in 2004, the first hanging in India in 13 years. 1995: A Jaipur court acquits five men accused of gang-raping Bhanwari Devi, a lower-caste woman who worked with the Women’s Development Project in Rajasthan, in 1992. Later, a petition is filed in the Supreme Court, which leads to the Vishaka Guidelines being put into place, to protect women against sexual harassment at the workplace. 1996: Law student Priyadarshini Mattoo is found raped and strangled in her Delhi flat. Santosh Kumar Singh, a fellow law student and son of a former senior police officer, is sentenced to death, after being initially acquitted due to a lack of evidence and then retried following a public outcry. Dec. 2012: A 23-year-old student is beaten and gang-raped on a moving bus in the capital New Delhi and later dies of her injuries. Five men and a juvenile are arrested - four of the men have been sentenced to death and one hanged himself during the trial. The juvenile was freed after completing three years in a reform home. The crime sparked large-scale protests and led thousands of women across India to break their silence over sexual violence that often goes unreported. Authorities stiffened penalties against sex crimes, introduced fast-track trials in rape cases and made stalking a crime. Jan. 2018: An 8-year-old Muslim girl is drugged, held captive in a temple and sexually assaulted for a week before being strangled and battered to death with a stone in Kathua town in northern India. Six men, including a Hindu priest and three police officers, were convicted of the crime. Three were given life sentences. Jul. 2018: Eighteen men are charged in Chennai with repeatedly raping a 12-year-old girl over a seven-month period, sedating her with drugs and then taking her to vacant apartments in the block to assault her. Oct. 2018: Catholic bishop Franco Mulakkal is arrested in Kerala after a nun accuses him of raping her repeatedly over two years. He has denied the charges. July 2019: A young woman who accused Uttar Pradesh state lawmaker Kuldeep Singh Sengar of raping her in 2017 and her lawyer are critically injured in a highway collision, when a truck hit the car in which they were traveling. The woman’s two aunts, who were also in the car, were killed. Sengar denies the rape and any involvement in the car crash. Nov. 28, 2019: The charred remains of the veterinarian are found under a flyover near Hyderabad. Four men are arrested on suspicion of gang-rape and murder. Dec 5, 2019: A 23-year-old rape victim is set ablaze by a gang of men, including the alleged rapist, as she made her way to court to attend a hearing in the case, in Unnao district of Uttar Pradesh, police said.

Nilanshi Patel, 17, from the small town of Modasa in Gujarat state, remains a cut above the rest according to the Guinness World Records having smashed her previous record of 5ft 6in set in December 2018 with a new length of 6ft 2in. Her proud father said his only child's locks had turned her from a local celebrity into an international one. Nicknamed 'Rapunzel' by her friends and schoolmates after the long, flowing hair of the princess in the Brothers Grimm fairytale, Nilanshi said she has not a visited a hairdresser for 11 years after a hair-raising ordeal.

    @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.

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.

By great good fortune, celestial bliss is attained, and the Lord, Har, Har, seems sweet to the mind. ਜਨੁ ਕਹੈ ਨਾਨਕੁ ਲਾਵ ਪਹਿਲੀ ਆਰੰਭੁ ਕਾਜੁ ਰਚਾਇਆ ॥੧॥ jan kahai naanak laav pahilee aarambh kaaj rachaa-i-aa. ((1)) Servant Nanak proclaims that, in this, the first round of the marriage ceremony, the marriage ceremony has begun. ((1)) Second Laav ਹਰਿ ਦੂਜੜੀ ਲਾਵ ਸਤਿਗੁਰੁ ਪੁਰਖੁ ਮਿਲਾਇਆ ਬਲਿ ਰਾਮ ਜੀਉ ॥ har doojrhee laav satgur purakh milaa-i-aa bal raam jee-o. In the second round of the marriage ceremony, the Lord leads you to meet the True Guru, the Primal Being. ਨਿਰਭਉ ਭੈ ਮਨੁ ਹੋਇ ਹਉਮੈ ਮੈਲੁ ਗਵਾਇਆ ਬਲਿ ਰਾਮ ਜੀਉ ॥ nirbha-o bhai man ho-ay ha-umai mail gavaa-i-aa bal raam jee-o.

In the Fear of God, the Immaculate Lord, sing the Glorious Praises of the Lord, and behold the Lord's Presence before you. ਹਰਿ ਆਤਮ ਰਾਮੁ ਪਸਾਰਿਆ ਸੁਆਮੀ ਸਰਬ ਰਹਿਆ ਭਰਪੂਰੇ ॥ har aatam raam pasaari-aa su-aamee sarab rahi-aa bharpooray. The Lord, the Supreme Soul, is the Lord and Master of the Universe; He is pervading and permeating everywhere, fully filling all spaces. ਅੰਤਰਿ ਬਾਹਰਿ ਹਰਿ ਪ੍ਰਭੁ ਏਕੋ ਮਿਲਿ ਹਰਿ ਜਨ ਮੰਗਲ ਗਾਏ ॥ antar baahar har parabh ayko mil har jan mangal gaa-ay. Deep within, and outside as well, there is only the One Lord God. Meeting together, the humble servants of the Lord sing the songs of joy. ਜਨ ਨਾਨਕ ਦੂਜੀ ਲਾਵ ਚਲਾਈ ਅਨਹਦ ਸਬਦ ਵਜਾਏ ॥੨॥ jan naanak doojee laav chalaa-ee anhad sabad vajaa-ay. ((2)) Servant Nanak proclaims that, in this, the second round of the marriage ceremony, the unstruck sound current of the Shabad resounds. ((2)) Third Laav ਹਰਿ ਤੀਜੜੀ ਲਾਵ ਮਨਿ ਚਾਉ ਭਇਆ ਬੈਰਾਗੀਆ ਬਲਿ ਰਾਮ ਜੀਉ ॥ har teejrhee laav man chaa-o bha-i-aa bairaagee-aa bal raam jee-o.

By great good fortune, I have found the humble Saints, and I speak the Unspoken Speech of the Lord. ਹਿਰਦੈ ਹਰਿ ਹਰਿ ਹਰਿ ਧੁਨਿ ਉਪਜੀ ਹਰਿ ਜਪੀਐ ਮਸਤਕਿ ਭਾਗੁ ਜੀਉ ॥ hirdai har har har Dhun upjee har japee-ai mastak bhaag jee-o. The Name of the Lord, Har, Har, Har, vibrates and resounds within my heart; meditating on the Lord, I have realized the destiny inscribed upon my forehead. ਜਨੁ ਨਾਨਕੁ ਬੋਲੇ ਤੀਜੀ ਲਾਵੈ ਹਰਿ ਉਪਜੈ ਮਨਿ ਬੈਰਾਗੁ ਜੀਉ ॥੩॥ jan naanak bolay teejee laavai har upjai man bairaag jee-o. ((3)) Servant Nanak proclaims that, in this, the third round of the marriage ceremony, the mind is filled with Divine Love for the Lord. ((3)) Fourth and Final Laav ਹਰਿ ਚਉਥੜੀ ਲਾਵ ਮਨਿ ਸਹਜੁ ਭਇਆ ਹਰਿ ਪਾਇਆ ਬਲਿ ਰਾਮ ਜੀਉ ॥ har cha-utharhee laav man sahj bha-i-aa har paa-i-aa bal raam jee-o. In the fourth round of the marriage ceremony, my mind has become peaceful; I have found the Lord. ਗੁਰਮੁਖਿ ਮਿਲਿਆ ਸੁਭਾਇ ਹਰਿ ਮਨਿ ਤਨਿ ਮੀਠਾ ਲਾਇਆ ਬਲਿ ਰਾਮ ਜੀਉ ॥ gurmukh mili-aa subhaa-ay har man tan meethaa laa-i-aa bal raam jee-o. As Gurmukh, I have met Him, with intuitive ease; the Lord seems so sweet to my mind and body. ਹਰਿ ਮੀਠਾ ਲਾਇਆ ਮੇਰੇ ਪ੍ਰਭ ਭਾਇਆ ਅਨਦਿਨੁ ਹਰਿ ਲਿਵ ਲਾਈ ॥ har meethaa laa-i-aa mayray parabh bhaa-i-aa an-din har liv laa-ee. The Lord seems so sweet; I am pleasing to my God. Night and day, I lovingly focus my consciousness on the Lord. ਮਨ ਚਿੰਦਿਆ ਫਲੁ ਪਾਇਆ ਸੁਆਮੀ ਹਰਿ ਨਾਮਿ ਵਜੀ ਵਾਧਾਈ ॥ man chindi-aa fal paa-i-aa su-aamee har naam vajee vaaDhaa-ee. I have obtained my Lord and Master, the fruit of my mind's desires. The Lord's Name resounds and resonates. ਹਰਿ ਪ੍ਰਭਿ ਠਾਕੁਰਿ ਕਾਜੁ ਰਚਾਇਆ ਧਨ ਹਿਰਦੈ ਨਾਮਿ ਵਿਗਾਸੀ ॥ har parabh thaakur kaaj rachaa-i-aa Dhan hirdai naam vigaasee. 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. ((4)(2)) So the first stage is where we start towards the first step of Dharam and unlike the 'world' find it SWEET- ( isn't that why we are here on this forum?? and both on stage I ( see- I told u so) Stage II Is as we hear ANHAD SOUNDS Stage III is when Gurmukhs can travel to Astral Worlds for SANT MANDLIs and sangat Stage IV is getting absorbed in the LORD - Being one with him

Guru Gobind singh ji in their previous life did continuous bhagti. Why his sikhs not able to do 3hr bhagti, instead we say that we only need pyaar, lol.. Was guru sahib not full of pyaar! By the way, I've heard in katha that 3.5hrs sitting is called one samadhi (or similar)..

    Fluoride and Trikuti

    It is advisable to avoid fluoride if possible. It calcifies the pineal gland; which inhibits spiritual growth and keeps your consciousness at low levels. The pineal gland is an important seat of consciousness. If it gets damaged, then your consciousness is unable to function or improve. Amrit nectar originates from the pineal gland. People with highly calcified glands often have lower IQ and limited awareness. They are usually stuck in a version of reality that is not the truth, and have difficulty in gaining spiritual awareness or ever awakening to real truths …(we have a couple on the forum...lol ) I'm a firm believer of these negative fluoride effects and there have been many studies. After noticing how the youth around me are so dumbed down nowadays, I decided to take some steps to minimize my kids fluoride consumption to avoid them becoming like other post millennials. I've been using "Zerowater" for nearly 2 years to remove all traces of any dissolved solids in water. It removes everything and seemed to be the answer after doing some reading around.. Tap water contains lead, chlorides, bromides, mercury, phosphorus , and dozens of other traces. ALL 'halides'(chloride, fluoride, bromide) can calcify the pineal gland. I'm not sure about other filters, because they all seemed to have pro's and con's. Some left the lead in, some just removed calcium which causes scaling, some made water more alkaline and some just removed one or teo of something else.....so I thought it easier to remove everything and make sure we were consuming necessary trace minerals via other sources. I was trying to consume the most nearest to natural water, as God had intended. (ph7 neutral). However, like I say, you miss out on important minerals like copper, silver, magnesium, chromium...etc and TBH, Nowadays, we can't get these from fruit and veg either because even with organic, the quality of soil is not the same as it were for our ancestors. So, I make sure we are getting these trace minerals via supplements. I try and get ones derived from whole foods rather than synthetic. Since I've only used the zero-water and it has been doing the trick, I can only suggest this. If you are able to return the one you purchased, then give it ashot. We have the larger water tank with filter in the fridge and I have noticed that my kids are more aware and have a good depth for understanding truth. Water quality is pretty good in Vancouver as I've only had to change the filter once in 2 years!

    What made you think that they don't raise your awareness? ..... It seems incorrect to me. See, if the below helps you...... Navel and slightly below (Mool duar) is where your knot of sukham (astral) body is. Gurbani also explains, that bhavjal sagar(bhavsagar) starts at the navel and goes upto the mid-point of eyes (triveni) .. The 3 channels, ida, pingal and sukhmana travel upwards along this bhavsagar, but the sukhmana is hidden.. Also represented by rivers Ganga, Jumna and Sarsvati.. The idea is to ascend upwards by balancing ida-pingala and activating through the central sukhmana (sarsvati). This is also how you raise kundalini. . In gurmat, as per gurbani, one can only ascend, increase frequencies..etc starting from the knot. There are other explanations as well, such as the agan(fire) element (in stomach area), This has to be conquered and left behind by the mind before it can deal with water and air. The MIND has to leave behind maya(5 elements) before it enters the sacha mahal inside. Also, alchemy reference in Japji bani below. This is similar to spiritual science of making pure gold with either Paras(philospher stone) or manually working with it in furnace. The furnace (heat) is stomach. This heat is necessary before gold/precious metal ore can be molten. Then process of separating the pure out of the ore, and finally the extraction of this ore. ਜਤੁ ਪਾਹਾਰਾ ਧੀਰਜੁ ਸੁਨਿਆਰੁ ॥ Jaṯ pāhārā ḏẖīraj suni▫ār. Let self-control be the furnace, and patience the goldsmith. ਅਹਰਣਿ ਮਤਿ ਵੇਦੁ ਹਥੀਆਰੁ ॥ Ahraṇ maṯ veḏ hathī▫ār. Let understanding be the anvil, and spiritual wisdom the tools. ਭਉ ਖਲਾ ਅਗਨਿ ਤਪ ਤਾਉ ॥ Bẖa▫o kẖalā agan ṯap ṯā▫o. With the Fear of God as the bellows, fan the flames of tapa, the body's inner heat. ਭਾਂਡਾ ਭਾਉ ਅੰਮ੍ਰਿਤੁ ਤਿਤੁ ਢਾਲਿ ॥ Bẖāʼndā bẖā▫o amriṯ ṯiṯ dẖāl. In the crucible of love, melt the Nectar of the Name, ਘੜੀਐ ਸਬਦੁ ਸਚੀ ਟਕਸਾਲ ॥ Gẖaṛī▫ai sabaḏ sacẖī taksāl. and mint the True Coin of the Shabad, the Word of God. There should be many other universal reasons of why you must start at the lower chakra areas and work your way up.

    Please someone guide me!

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

    How to become celibate when married ?

    I cannot speak for anyone else but a brahgyani told me that sex should only be used for reproduction. After a few years the reason for this became clear. Even arousal uses pran. Higher stages of meditation cannot become stable unless pran is stable. A great deal of pran is expelled during arousal and intercourse, and those who have strong desire for spiritual progress will try to abstain once they experience the effect and impact. Of course, abstinence isn't for everyone, but we shouldn't make assumptions without understanding purpose and how this machine (body) works. Lust is a big struggle for many of us. Myself included. Even swapan dosh ruins meditation for a while. Many lifetimes of dirt needs to be washed away before we start making real progress.

    Confused about Kundalini /Rom Rom

    He doesn't say anything wrong directly in the video but the technique he mentions of excessive & forced navel breathing is NOT simran and not what I would recommend to anyone either. He is correct that this can lead to a "Forced" kundalini awakening, ..but all Yoga's advise against this in general and warn students about not attempting forced kundalini awakenings. However, the video can be misinterpreted, because he has used the term yojis, very loosely. It gives the impression that all yogi methods are forced and not gurmat. Whereas, this is clearly not the case. He says that people doing "waheguru waheguru" and no gurbani veechar or paaths is a false technique-> True to an extent, ..but you have to do simran to start going within,..and when you are more inwards, you will interpret gurbani at much deeper levels. A true abyassee can usually tell if another Sikh has been practicing abyaas in gurmat, if the other's gurbani veechar and interpretation is deep enough and more profound. .Especially with bhagat bani like Kabeer ji and Naamdev..

    Mool Mantar Jugti?

    looking forward to it. I still have not finished my sankalpa of sava lakh mool mantar jaap. Can unfinished sankalpas also cause karmic problems ? This stuff about Mantra Sidhi & Purashcharana has always fascinated me. Yet I have not been able to complete anything myself with strict protocols.

    Sri Satguru jee does not need to engage in any sexual activity, in order to create children. They were the incarnation of the Almighty Waheguru, not mere humans like me. They can create and destroy in an instant. ਹਰਨ ਭਰਨ ਜਾ ਕਾ ਨੇਤ੍ਰ ਫੋਰੁ ॥ Bhul chuk maaf

    Who said that Satguru jee made a mistake? IMHO, Baba jee was never against Raag Kirtan, as he was a Gurmukh Brahamgyani. He was the Sikh of Maharaaj. If he preferred non-raag style, it is his wish, He had the freedom to do so. In the end - Love and devotion will matter, not which style of Kirtan, a person used to sing. Bhul chuk maaf

    Bro, there is plenty of reference to Saints in Gurbani. You cannot run away from the facts. One can connect with the Almighty Waheguru directly too through Gurbani, but it is very very very tough to do so. Easy method - Saadh Sangat - Sangat of Saints/Gurmukhs/Sadhus. Bhul chuk maaf

    The instructions you mentioned probably specific for one person as the person might have asked a specific question to which he got a specific answer. Someone just happened to spread that saakhi and it got published in the book & someone shared it here later with noble intentions. I am at no level to analyze the lives of Gurus & Saints so I cannot answer any of your questions. My advise would be to stop worrying about Qoum & Saints so much instead focus on yourself & family. You will waste your energy unnecessarily.

    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.

    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!!
