  3. 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.

      Very good quotes veer ji

  5. Except humans nobody laughs. I don't think you would have ever seen a bird laughing or a dog laughing. This privilege is only given to humans. If we want to remain humans, humour has to be there just to relax. But we have so much association with the past species; we find it hard to laugh. Unknown.
  6. A very touching story: There was a group of women in a Bible Study on the book of Malachi. As they were studying chapter three, they came across verse three, which says: "He will sit as a refiner and purifier of silver. "This verse puzzled the women and they wondered what this statement meant about the character and nature of God. One of the women offered to find out the process of refining silver and get back to the group at their next Bible Study. That week, this woman called up a silversmith and made an appointment to watch him at work. She didn't mention anything about the reason for her interest beyond her curiosity about the process of refining silver. As she watched the silversmith, he held a piece of silver over the fire and let it heat up. He explained that in refining silver, one needed to hold the silver in the middle of the fire where the flames were hottest as to burn away all the impurities. The woman thought about God holding us in such a hot spot then she thought again about the verse, that "He sits as a refiner and purifier of silver." She asked the silversmith if it was true that he had to sit there in front of the fire the whole time the silver was being refined. The man answered that yes, he not only had to sit there holding the silver, but he had to keep his eyes on the silver the entire time it was in the fire. If the silver was left a moment too long in the flames, it would be destroyed. The woman was silent for a moment. Then she asked the silversmith, how do you know when the silver is fully refined? He smiled at her and answered, "Oh, that's easy - when I see my image in it." If today you are feeling the heat of the fire, remember that God has His eye on you, and will keep watching you until He sees His image in you.
  7. “The body has its own way of knowing, a knowing that has little to do with logic, and much to do with truth, little to do with control, and much to do with acceptance, little to do with division and analysis, and much to do with union.” ~ Marilyn Sewell *Note: though the writer of the above verses is not of any eastern philosophy, yet if paid attention, it is a natural expression of a soul to find its origin, where it meets the need of virtues known in sikhee such as: no manmat, bhaana, and an intense desire to become one with its origin, the Highest Primal Truth, which in Gurmat we know as Waheguru Akal Purukh, or, Aad Sach... it is just amazing, how the souls have a natural instinct towards its origin, without limitations of any kind, created in ignorance by manmukhs of any caste, creed or color. SABNA JEEA KA IKO DAATA, SO MEH VISAAR NA JAAE. SSA.
  8. Pen Jee, though your post above is 5 years now, I can tell you that you have a very positive and a brave view about your situation. It is true that, your pain is due to your past karam, which will go only when it is duely settled, but Pen Jee, Waheguru the all merciful has also given us the chance to mitigate that pain to an extent, so, you may continue taking the medicines, there is nothing wrong in it. Like, if we are hungry, we go for food; if we are thirsty we want to drink water, in a similar way, if we are in pain we should take medicines. Not that, Waheguru will come and feed us, or give us water, for that purpose He has given us sense of discrimination to use it in the right manner and for our own benefit. Waheguru has never to blamed for any of our misfortunes or miseries, for it is all our past karam, our own sown seeds... At the same time, we should engage ourselves in doing His real Bhakti, for with it by His apaar kirpa, we may arise to certain consciouss level within, where even while going through heavy karam, we may not feel its effects. Of course this is a very saintly state, yet we should go for it, for we have nothing to loose, but at least be receptive to His apaar kirpa. Stay blessed. SSA.
  9. Blonde walks into a doctors office and says: "Doctor, what’s the problem with me? When I touch my arm, ouch! It hurts... When I touch my leg, ouch! it hurts... When I touch my head, ouch! It hurts... When I touch my chest, ouch! it really hurts!" The Doctor replies: "Your finger is broken." Little Johnny was in church with him mom for Sunday Mass when he suddenly felt nauseous. "Mom, I think I'm going to throw up!" She told him, "I want you to run outside as fast as you can. Run across the lawn and go behind the bushes. You can throw up behind the bushes and nobody will see you." So Little Johnny hauled ass for the door. Less than a minute later, he returned to his seat next to his mom. He had the look of obvious relief on his young face. "Did you make it all the way to the bushes, Johnny?" "I didn't have to go that far, mom. Just as I got to the front door, I found a box that had a sign on it: FOR THE SICK." A blonde and a lawyer are seated next to each other on a flight from LA to NY. The lawyer asks if she would like to play a fun game? The blonde, tired, just wants to take a nap, politely declines and rolls over to the window to catch a few winks. The lawyer persists and explains that the game is easy and a lot of fun. He explains, "I ask you a question, and if you don't know the answer, you pay me $5.00, and vice versa. " Again, she declines and tries to get some sleep. The lawyer, now agitated, says, "Okay, if you don't know the answer you pay me $5.00, and if I don't know the answer, I will pay you $500.00." This catches the blonde's attention and, figuring there will be no end to this torment unless she plays, agrees to the game. The lawyer asks the first question. "What's the distance from the earth to the moon?" The blonde doesn't say a word, reaches into her purse, pulls out a $5.00 bill and hands it to the lawyer. "Okay" says the lawyer, "your turn." She asks the lawyer, "What goes up a hill with three legs and comes down with four legs?" The lawyer, puzzled, takes out his laptop computer and searches all his references, no answer. He taps into the air phone with his modem and searches the net and the library of congress, no answer. Frustrated, he sends e-mails to all his friends and coworkers, to no avail. After an hour, he wakes the blonde, and hands her $500.00. The blonde says, "Thank you," and turns back to get some more sleep. The lawyer, who is more than a little miffed, wakes the blonde and asks, "Well, what's the answer?" Without a word, the blonde reaches into her purse, hands the lawyer $5.00, and goes back to sleep. And you thought blondes were dumb.
  10. The local sheriff was looking for a deputy, so Gomer - who was not exactly the sharpest nail in the bucket went in to try out for the job. "Okay," the sheriff drawled, "Gomer, what is 1 and 1?" "11" he replied. The sheriff thought to himself, "That's not what I meant, but he's right." "What two days of the week start with the letter 'T'?" "Today and tomorrow." He was again surprised that Gomer supplied a correct answer that he had never thought of himself. "Now Gomer, listen carefully: Who killed Abraham Lincoln?" Gomer looked a little surprised himself, then thought really hard for a minute and finally admitted, "I don't know." "Well, why don't you go home and work on that one for a while?" So, Gomer wandered over to the pool hall where his pals were waiting to hear the results of the interview. Gomer was exultant. "It went great! First day on the job and I'm already working on a murder case!" The math teacher saw that little Johnny wasn't paying attention in class. She called on him and said, "Johnny! What are 2 and 4 and 28 and 44?" Little Johnny quickly replied, "NBC, FOX, ESPN and the Cartoon Network!" Little Johnny was doing his math homework. He said to himself, "Two plus five, that son of a admin cut is seven. Three plus six, that son of a admin cut is nine." His mother heard what he was saying and gasped, "What are you doing?" The little boy answered, "I'm doing my math homework." "And this is how your teacher taught you to do it?" the mother asked. "Yes," he answered. Infuriated, she called Little Johnny's teacher the next day, "What are you teaching my son in class?" The teacher replied, "Right now, we are learning addition." The mother asked, "And are you teaching them to say two plus two, that son of a admin cut is four?" After the teacher stopped laughing, she answered, "What I taught them was, two plus two, the sum of which is four." Three men, a philosopher, a mathematician and an idiot, were out riding in the car when it crashed into a tree. Before anyone knows it, the three men found themselves standing before the pearly gates of Heaven, where St. Peter and the Devil were standing nearby. "Gentlemen," the Devil started, "Due to the fact that Heaven is now overcrowded, St. Peter has agreed to limit the number of people entering Heaven. If anyone of you can ask me a question which I don't know or cannot answer, then you're worthy enough to go to Heaven; if not, then you'll come with me to Hell." The philosopher then stepped up, "OK, give me the most comprehensive report on Socrates' Socrates' teachings." With a snap of his finger, a stack of paper appeared next to the Devil. The philosopher read it and concluded it was correct. "Then, go to Hell!" With another snap of his finger, the philsopher disappeared. The mathematician then asked,"Give me the most complicated formula ever theorized!" With a snap of his finger, another stack of paper appeared next to the Devil. The mathematician read it and reluctantly agreed it was correct. "Then, go to Hell!" With another snap of his finger, the mathematician disappeared too. The idiot then stepped forward and said, "Bring me a chair!" The Devil brought forward a chair. "Drill 7 holes on the seat." The Devil did just that. The idiot then sat on the chair and let out a very loud fart. Standing up, he asked, "Which hole did my fart come out from?" The Devil inspected the seat and said,"The third hole from the right." "Wrong," said the idiot, "it's from my asshole." And the idiot went to heaven.
  11. are there any flaws in the Sikh faith? Simple answer is no, for sikhee is not a path by any ordinay human being, but He Waheguru Akal Purukh Himself, the most wise and perfect being, through His manifestations as Guru Sahiban and Bhagat Jan. Other thing is, how we low and highly tainted manmukh jeevas interpret their teachings. To see the simplicity and completeness of Sikhee, let us take the following 5 sat bachan of a verse from the Bani. Ekas bin, sabh dandh hae. Here Guru Jee is telling us, apart from that One supreme being Akal Purukh, every other thing is perishable. So be it anything done, which does not take us to that One, is useless. So once again, what is it that only that takes us to Him? As per Bani, the answer is: Jin Har japeeya, se Har hoeeya. We may want to listen many things, or interpretations from the Bani or interact in so called intelectual discussions, but, Gurbani is crystal clear, in telling us simple and clear facts of devoting ourselves to this Truth, and One and only Supreme Truth: Nam/Shabad. Otherwise, we are sure to get drowned by the flaws in the form of spiritual ignorance, or asat/koor. Stay blessed. SSA.
  12. 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.
