    Is Naam The Anahad Naad?

    whatever name that you're japping. We didn't go in depth into this topic, he just said don't get focused on anhad shabad, go past it. i (personal view) see it as a helper. listening to it pulls your surti out from the world so you can more easily focus on naam. But if you are already focused than its fine to completely ignore it and focus on naam.

    “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.

    I had no idea about sant ji's spiritual lineage. I didn't know he was from a lineage that included the Sikh freedom fight Bhai Maharaj Singh ji, until I read it on this forum a few weeks ago. I also didn't know that the lineage goes back to first Panj Piara Daya Singh ji. I feel blest with having his darshan as a kid now, even if it's taken me this long to realise who he was and what he did for the panth.

    Simran with a cat

    Your attention is divided and focused on the cat rather than the simran so you aren't fully able devote your surti to the primary task. I struggle even if there is background noise. My ears love to run in the direction of external sounds rather than listening to the jaap or within. I find it terribly annoying.

    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

    Is Naam The Anahad Naad?

    Gurbani starts with a reference to Nam, when First Patshahee says: Ik Oankar Satnam Satnam is composed with 2 syllables : Sat + Nam. Here, Sat is truth, but not that truth as we know and understand at our level. For example if we say, Paris is the capital of France, we are undoubtedly speaking the truth, but it is a relative truth, means it is temporary in time and space, one day it shall get dissolution, it will dissapear. Whil on the other side, when Guru added Sat to the shabad Nam, He means to say, that, that Nam is Truth, for it is changeless and eternal, beyond any limitations. So basically, Nam is a creative power, a highest level of consciousness, which is eternal and changeless, yet is Nam only; not that Satnam is a different entity. Sat/truth, describes the changless and eternity attributes of Nam. Now, Nam being an infinte Ocean of Energy/Power, Supraconsciousness, as described throughout the Bani, is full of resplandencent Light and divine melodies. This is found in Aarti and Anand Sahib, when we say : Sabh meh Jot Jot hae soee, or, Nam jiskay man vaseeya vajeh Shabad ganere. Also Sree Guru Arjan Dev in Raag Gauri tells us Naam Sunae Naam Sangrehai Naamae Liv Laavo I hear the Naam, and I gather in the Naam; I am lovingly attuned to the Naam. First He says: I hear the Nam, means I repeat it within or meditate on it. Secndly He says: I gather the Nam. This means, he goes on with the Simran of His Name, in order to cut our attention from the outside world, and thorough continous focus on it by Simran, we enter into the subtler realms within ourselves, that what the Bani calls it call Harmandir also. And thirdly He says: I am lovingly attuned to the Nam. This means, when we do His simran, we get purified, and thus reveal or make pargat Nam within ourselves, with its refulgence Light/Akhoot Jot, and with our inner ears, we start listening the Divine melodies within, which have an pulling effect towards itself on the soul or jeev atma. Here, He is revealing us the secret to become one with that ultimate reality, which one may call it: God, Shabad, Nam, Satnam. Waheguru, Akal Purukh, Sachee Bani, Aad Sach, Word, Logos, Tao .... all these terms, refer to the same ultimate and highest reality of Nam Once the soul becomes stable in listening and seeing Nam within, then something wonderful takes place, the soul having discarded all impurities and coverings of different bodies, such as astral and causal, freed from mind ... the soul recovers it self realization of true nature as a particle, a ray, a drop of Nam. And through apaar kirpa of that Satnam, the jeev atma merges becoming one with Him. Thus only, the jeev atma, gets freed or gets mukti from the unendable cycle of 84. In this respect, let us pay close attention to the following sat bachans of Guru Jee. Avar Karathooth Sagalee Jam Ddaanai || All other efforts are punished by the Messenger of Death, Govindh Bhajan Bin Thil Nehee Maanai || Which accepts nothing at all, except meditation on the Lord of the Universe. Sukhmani Sahib Guru Arjun Dev I believe, many think Nam japna is for only those of high avastha .... Nevertheless, Guru Sahiban exclusively point it, to us ordinary beings, full of limitations and heavy loaded karmas .... It is by Nam japna only, that we too can become of high avastha, to the extent, that we can merge in Him, and become one with Him. That is, by His atee wadeeayee only. Stay blessed. SSA.

    What is maha parlao?

    Just my 2 cents, to understand what Mahaparlay is, let us see how the creation is divided. There are several levels of consciousness, or planes, or regions so to say. The lowest is this material creation, above it is the astral region, and above that is the causal region. It is called causal, becuase it is there where all our store karma gets accumulated. This is the region, from where all the incarnations with their abodes/heavens; prophets, and some highly eveolved spiritual beings come to our level, with a particular of keeping this mayavee creation going on. This region is also known as Brahm, for maya is still very much present there. Which has nothing to do with the god Brahma. After that comes, Parbrahm region, much purer than the regions mentioned above, yet it is not pure spiritual, there is utter darkness, so much that it is known as Maha Sunn. This can only be crossed in the company of Shabad Guru, for, Shabad Guru only, has the Jot to pierce that utter darkness. At the end of Maha Sunn, is the end of the perishable creation. After Maha Sunn, comes Sach Khand, the region of eternity, immortality, purity and Supreme Truth/Satnam. It is from this region, from where Akal Purukh descends, not as any incarnations or any gods of any trinity, but only, as Guru Sahiban, Gurmukhs, Sant Jan and Bhagat Jan, for the only purpose of, giving us jeevas their bountiful love and unlimited mercy, and to reveal us the mysteries about the Supreme Truth, Waheguru, as Nam or Shabad, for they are the very manisfestation of Him, at our level. Had He not come so, we by ourselves, could never ever reach Him, for we would be very much astrayed in rituals, gods, idol worship...... manmat In this respect, the Bani clearly tells us: Mat koe barahm bhoolay sansaar, bin Satgur, koe na utraas paar. Let us have a look around ourselves, and see how many from the whole creation know about Waheguru ? How many then, implicitly follow instructions from the Bani in devoting themselves to Waheguru, in order to realize Him, and merge in Him? As sikhs, our goal should be only Waheguru Akal Purukh, for in Him alone lies our true welfare, for only by devoting ourselves to Him, we get throughly cleansed/purified from all the filth of our sins/karmas, obtain liberation from the wheel of 84, and only then become fit and worthy to merge and become one with Him. Waheguru is IK, one only. In Him, there is no trinity, no variety, no forms such at turtle, no half man-half lion , no sizes, no duality, or any companion such as shakti.....nothing of that sort...that is all maya, and I am so sorry, that inspite of the incomparable magnificence and Infinity of Waheguru, many many of our sikh brothers and sisters, get impressed by the powers and forms of those incarnations, thus mistakenly believe that those forms are of Waheguru, which is not true at all .... To see the differences between all these mayavee forms and our beloved Guru Sahiban, we have to pay careful attention to the Bani, not as parrots, but as real sikhs by drinking the Amrit in each Sat Bachan from it. Then only we can see, that Gurmat gives only importance to His Saacha Nao, Nam, or Shabad, nothing else, nothing more apart from it... As the Bani says: Jug chaaray Nam outam, shabd veechar. Througout all yugas, Gurmat gives only importance to the One and only Truth, Nam, that is it. Apart from one Him and His Nam, all else is undoubtedly Maya. It is a real pity, that even after having the highest teachings through Gurbani, we keep looking here and there and get confused.... maybe the reason for that, is we do not put into practice, what we are repeatedly told in the Bani as seen in the following sat bachan of Guru Jee: Har Naam Bisaariaa, Bahu Karam Dhrirraaeae They forget the Lord's Name, and in its place, they establish all sorts of rituals(practices) Bhavajal Ddoobae Dhoojai Bhaaeae They drown in the terrifying world-ocean, in the love of duality. Raag Gauri, Sree Guru Amar Das Maharaj. Stay blessed. SSA.

    That's very true veer ji. But we should also take note of how some of these brothers and sisters are treated quite shabbily by some people in Gurdwaras. That is disgraceful. Also, these people are on the frontline. This is Guru ji's hukam of how this panth is spreading. It's an important step in our community becoming truly global, and becoming diverse outside of Panjabcentrism, as it was supposed to, and originally was.

    Scotland Yard detective: I was told to ignore 'meat rack' VIPs during paedophile probe Former Chief Inspector Howard Groves was told to ignore paedophile VIPs Inspector investigated West End paedophile ring with alleged links to MPs Boys supplied to men in Piccadilly Circus in area known as ‘the meat rack’ A Scotland Yard detective claims he was told to ignore VIPs during a paedophile probe now being investigated by the police watchdog. Former Chief Inspector Howard Groves, who served in the murder squad during a distinguished 34-year career, was investigating a West End paedophile ring with alleged links to MPs and TV stars in the 1980s. Detectives found that boys as young as 14 were being supplied to men in Piccadilly Circus in an area known by the boys as ‘the meat rack’. Former Chief Inspector Howard Groves claims he was told to ignore VIPs during a paedophile probe now being investigated by the police watchdog Mr Groves, now 58, told The Mail on Sunday: ‘I remember we were called to a meeting [and] told by a senior officer that if we found any establishment figures involved, the investigation would be stopped.’ Names of MPs, celebrities and businessmen did surface during the inquiry – though Mr Groves, who retired in 2014, wasn’t privy to them – and 25 men were convicted.The operation was led by Met Commander Trevor Lloyd-Hughes, who died in 1986 amid claims of soliciting male prostitutes. Mr Groves said: ‘The command not to investigate establishment figures was relayed by a senior officer and I believe must have come from Lloyd-Hughes.’ Mr Groves’s claim is one of 31 allegations of Met corruption relating to child sex offences that the Independent Police Complaints Commission is investigating.

My friends dont believe that I am suffering this much.Even my doctor do appreciate me.But as man never gets satisfied,the only problem now is I dont want to take medicines anymore.I am in a situation like I am ignoring my health.I dont care much about it.yes ,It does pain a lot the whole day but Now I am like ok with it.I say let see how much It can persist.I know It can be cured with medicines,but I am not ok with it now.I mean ,I 've learnt how to live with it.I dunno whether I am doing right or not?

    Is My Parakh Going On ?

    To brother Raman, and to all those are going through bad periods, and to those any of us who can go through it any time without previous notification, I can only say something which I have learned from Gurmat, and that is, whatever happens in life, it is our very karma, and this karma is not thrwon upon us indiscrimately, but it is a microscopic part of our very countless earnings(karmas). So we should never ever blame anyone for it, not even to our beloved Wahiguru, to whom almost the whole world accusses, when in reality He does nothing as such, to make us feel pain or make us miserable.... how dare we do that? It is out of agyanta, man blames Him He is softer than the softest.... So as said, life is based on karmas, which we can not alterate. We know we may be poor or sick, and have no wealth, neither scope maybe, but one thing is sure, we have something which is the most valuable thing is this creation, of which, even billions of dollars or pounds can not buy even 1 gramme of it. And that is our "swaasa dee poonjee", the wealth of the number of remaining breaths we have to take yet. This precious wealth, we can waste it like that in a useless manner, or we can use it, in a useful manner to make ourselves a spiritual emeperor. Yes, yes, you are listening well, a spiritual emperor. Now, who is a spiritual emperor? Naturally, the answer is Wahiguru Akal Purukh. Here comes now the beant greatness of Wahiguru. Our destiny is only due to our karmas as said before, but by His daat of swaasa dee poonjee, we can reach the highest. For that we have to do some sort of bussiness, in which we have to give something valuable, so to get in return something valueless, means something which even gods can not give us.... So, the bussiness is, to give one breath, and in exchange purchase Nam for it, as simple as that; it is not costly nor difficult for anybody, irrespective of gender, class, health, political or economic issues.... Have we ever asked, why do we like to gather money? Mostly it is because, we want to insure our future, to live happily and with dignity. But , we tend to forget, that we are not going to live here for ever...life is short and uncertain; moreover any type of wealth accumulated here, in the end is nothing but a handful of dust, just as our very own body, which we love so much and take it as our real identity. So, if live is uncertain here, and we do not want to come back either in this valley of pain and tears, there is only one option left. And that option is, to use the wealth of our breaths, to obtain and achieve the highest, and this can only be done, if we gather the wealth of Nam with each breath, whether in walking, eating, sitting or in any other daily activity of ours, in which the attention of mind is not required much. So Sant Janas, Mahapurkhs, advise us, that while you can not change your destiny, you can change the future, which in due time wil become your destiny. And that divine change, only we can make it, nobody can do that for us, each one has to do it for himself/herself. And that divine change is possible, as assured by Gurmukhs, who are the very embodiment of Wahiguru Akal Purukh. This is the very reason, why the Bani is made and left for us humans, so that we understand ourselves, understand Him, and try to change the course of our future, by directing it to Sach Khand, His abode of eternal Truth, bliss and happiness. And all this is only possible, if only we become aware of our true nature which is spiritual, that we belong to Him, and not to world full of "koorr". Only when we become aware of this reality of ours, then only can we take the second step, which is to do something to achieve it, and that something is nothing than His Simran, as much as possible at all times, so that when we go from this world, Kal has nothing to tax, as he can only tax us on something gathered by maya, means karmas; but he can not tax us on the wealth which is far from his reach, which is the wealth of Naam. So let us now think, is not Wahiguru all Dayalu? With our efforts and inteligence, we collect dirt and dust of karmas, on the other side, with His Grace, by means of Naam Simran alone, we become a spiritual emperor like Him, by merging in Him. Is this not the best thing Wahiguru can do for us His souls, irrespective of our good or bad karmas? Why do we fail then to understand His utter Daya Meher on us? When are we going to stop blaming Him? We are moorakhs, mughads ... He is attee Sundar, attee Ooouch, Apaar, Beant, Soami. The most beautiful, the highest, beyond reach, limitless, the Lord of all. Waheguru.

    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. Sing, and listen, and let your mind be filled with love. dukh parhar sukh ghar lai jaa-ay. Your pain shall be sent far away, and peace shall come to your home. gurmukh naadaN gurmukh vaydaN gurmukh rahi-aa samaa-ee. The Guru's Word is the Sound-current of the Naad; the Guru's Word is the Wisdom of the Vedas; the Guru's Word is all-pervading. man bairaagee ghar vasai sach bhai raataa ho-ay. If the mind becomes balanced and detached, and comes to dwell in its own true home, imbued with the Fear of God, gi-aan mahaaras bhogvai baahurh bhookh na ho-ay. then it enjoys the essence of supreme spiritual wisdom; it shall never feel hunger again. too daree-aa-o daanaa beenaa mai machhulee kaisay ant lahaa. You are the River, All-knowing and All-seeing. I am just a fish-how can I find Your limit? jah jah daykhaa tah tah too hai tujh tay niksee foot maraa. ||1|| Wherever I look, You are there. Outside of You, I would burst and die. ||1|| na jaanaa may-o na jaanaa jaalee. I do not know of the fisherman, and I do not know of the net.

You are present everywhere. I had thought that You were far away. manmukh mohi vi-aapi-aa bairaag udaasee na ho-ay. The self-willed manmukhs are engrossed in emotional attachment; they are not balanced or detached. sabad na cheenai sadaa dukh har dargahi pat kho-ay. They do not comprehend the Word of the Shabad. They suffer in pain forever, and lose their honor in the Court of the Lord. ha-umai gurmukh kho-ee-ai naam ratay sukh ho-ay. ||1|| The Gurmukhs shed their ego; attuned to the Naam, they find peace. gurmukh sadaa sohaaganee pir raakhi-aa ur Dhaar. The Gurmukh is the happy and pure soul-bride forever. She keeps her Husband Lord enshrined within her heart. mithaa boleh niv chaleh sayjai ravai bhataar. Her speech is sweet, and her way of life is humble. She enjoys the Bed of her Husband Lord. sobhaavantee sohaaganee jin gur kaa hayt apaar. ||2|| The happy and pure soul-bride is noble; she has infinite love for the Guru. ||2|| poorai bhaag satgur milai jaa bhaagai kaa ud-u ho-ay. By perfect good fortune, one meets the True Guru, when one's destiny is awakened. antrahu dukh bharam katee-ai sukh paraapat ho-ay.

The Amrit, the Ambrosial Nectar, is in the Guru's Will. With intuitive ease, it is obtained. jinaa paraapat tin pee-aa ha-umai vichahu kho-ay. Those who are destined to have it, drink it in; their egotism is eradicated from within. naanak gurmukh naam Dhi-aa-ee-ai sach milaavaa ho-ay. ||4||13||46|| O Nanak, the Gurmukh meditates on the Naam, and is united with the True Lord. man mayray kartay no saalaahi.

Pain and hunger shall not oppress you, if the Giver of Peace comes into your mind. kit hee kamm na chhijee-ai jaa hirdai sachaa so-ay. No undertaking shall fail, when the True Lord is always in your heart. jis tooN rakheh hath day tis maar na sakai ko-ay.

Pain and suffering will not touch you at all. sadaa sadaa kar chaakree parabh saahib sachaa so-ay. ||2|| Forever and ever, work for God; He is our True Lord and Master. ||2|| tiseh Dhi-aavahu man mayray sarab ko aaDhaar. ||1|| Meditate on the One, O my mind, who is the Support of all. ||1|| gur kay charan man meh Dhi-aa-ay.

Everyone begs for happiness; no one asks for suffering. sukhai ka-o dukh aglaa manmukh boojh na ho-ay. But in the wake of happiness, there comes great suffering. The self-willed manmukhs do not understand this. sukh dukh sam kar jaanee-ahi sabad bhayd sukh ho-ay. ||5|| Those who see pain and pleasure as one and the same find peace; they are pierced through by the Shabad. ||5|| satgur bhai kaa bohithaa nadree paar utaar. ||4|| The True Guru is the only boat on this terrifying ocean.

If I forget my Beloved, even for an instant, suffering overtakes me and peace departs. jihvaa jala-o jalaavanee naam na japai rasaa-ay. Let that tongue be burnt in flames, which does not chant the Naam with love. bin sabdai jag dukhee-aa firai manmukhaa no ga-ee khaa-ay. Without the Shabad, the world wanders lost in pain.
