  1. Just Drop Once a Crow, holding on to a piece of meat was flying to find a place to sit & eat. However, an Eagle started chasing it. The crow was anxious and was flying higher and higher, yet the eagle was after the poor crow. Just then "Garuda" saw the plight and pain in the eyes of the crow. Garuda being the bird of wisdom spoke "Oh my friend!! That eagle is not after you to kill you!! It is after that piece of meat that you are holding in your beak. Just drop it and see what will happen”. The crow followed the advice of Garuda and dropped the piece of meat, and there you go, the eagle flew towards the falling meat. Garuda smiled and said "The Pain is only till you hold on to it. Just Drop it”. The crow bowed and said "I dropped this piece of meat, now, I can fly even higher”. Do you carry the huge burden called "Ego," which creates a false identity about us, saying "I need love, I need to be invited, I am so and so.. etc..." ??? -Just Drop. Do you get irritated fast by "others’ actions" it may be a friend, parents, children, a colleague, life partner... and get the fumes of "anger "? - Just Drop. Do you compare yourself with others.. in beauty, wealth, life style, marks, talent and appraisals and feel disturbed with such comparisons and negative emotions ? - Just Drop Just drop the burden And evolve & fly Higher.....

  4. The Leaking Bucket ~ You wake up early morning trying to do your Pooja / Path/Yoga but your mind is elsewhere and before you know it, you're done with it without being mindful of it. (A leaking bucket) ~ You're very kind to outsiders/people in general and speak with them gently but with your own family you're always harsh/rude. (A leaking bucket) ~ You honour and treat your guests well but when they leave, you gossip about them and talk about their flaws. (A leaking bucket) ~ You try to read as much religious books, listen to Satsang /Keertan, participate in social services/ Sewa but you swear, insult, curse daily. (A leaking bucket) ~ You help others but you're doing it to gain something in return from them and not doing those acts of kindness selflessly. (A leaking bucket) ~ You frequently advice/preach others on religious matters but practice none yourself. (A leaking bucket) ~ You slander other devout persons out of hatred/spite when your views do not meet one another. (A leaking bucket) ~ You look down on others and feel more superior than them, judging their level of knowledge about religion based on external appearances (A leaking bucket) We struggle to fill our "lives"(the bucket) with "earnings" of religious knowledge (the water), hoping it will retain inside but it is leaked by the many flaws (the holes) that we commit daily. An excellent reminder for all, including myself, to try and patch these holes up so we may progress further on this beautiful path of spiritual life.
  5. * Very good points Veer Jee. A1) It is obvious, it means nothing to someone like this fellow. A2) They keep it as a matter of tradition only, because they are born in a sikh family. You know what, the snake also changes several times its skin, yet the poison is very much within untouched. It is a very good sign, if one has in account sikh values by tself, for it shows courage, faith and respect. But all that is futile, when the mind attacks the jeeva. we are all under the influence of mind, some less, some more, but nobody is free from the negative enforcement of the mind, through the vikars.... None can ever overcome the evil tendencies of the mind, howsoever very subtle. Guru Jee tiredlessly emphasizes Bhakti to vanquish the mind, once and forever : Prabh ka simran, man kee mael jae. Sarab rog ka aukhad Nam. Avar kaaj tere kitay na kaam, mil Sadh sangat, bhaj kewal Nam. We are so engrossed and busy paying attention, in cleaning and washing the outer body, which we think is our true self, that we tend to forget our true spiritual nature as soul/ jeev atma. It is something like as for example, if our computer is infected with viruses/trojans, what will happen if we only use outer products, to clean and polish the hardware outside? The internal malware / infection is still very much there.... We need to use an antivirus cleaner /software, at the same internal level where the viruses are located, in order to desinfect that malware/viruses .... And that internal software which cleanses us from all our past karmas, sins, vikars, abosolutely everything.....is none other than His Bhakti as per Gurbani. Stay blessed. SSA.

  9. Found these utmost beautiful Sat Bachans in the Bani, thought of sharing it with the sangat here.... ਨਾਨਕ ਨਦਰਿ ਕਰੇ ਸੋ ਬੂਝੈ ਸੋ ਜਨੁ ਨਾਮੁ ਧਿਆਏ ॥ Naanak Nadhar Karae So Boojhai So Jan Naam Dhhiaaeae || O Nanak, that mortal who is blessed with the Lord's Glance of Grace, he alone understands Him; and that alone humble servant, meditates on the Naam, the Name of the Lord.

  10. Congrats Baz. in reference to your 3 points above, following are my personal views/opinions in the same order. a) This is an act of respect and common sense, great. b) Such is the power of Gurbani, with His kirpa even stone hearted can melt with its purity and sweetness. The more you listen to it , the more you get impacted with its simple Truthfulness, then what to say about if one acts as instructed in it.... one merges into that Infinite Ocean of Love and mercy, namely Waheguru Akal Purukh. c) True, Gurbani brings you closer to that univerasl Ultimate and Supreme Truth, commonly known as God, for it helps us to remove all our negativity, thus made fit to become one with that infinite Ocean of mercy, love and goodness. Stay blessed. Sat Sree Akal.

  13. With due respect to all gyanis and mahapurukhs to whatever they have said, yet that much this das will add, it is that, this our present birth is the best of all ages, for we are born as human beings, thus have the chance to engage ourselves in His bhakti and become one with Him. That is it. To what profit is for us any yuga, if we are not humans in it, and be in any other joonee ... So let us not get deluded by anyone. The best is today and now what we have, for He has blessed us with human birth, to make the most of Bhakti and merge in Him. Sat Sree Akal. P.S Gurbani tells us: Ik gharee na miltay ta Kalyug hota. Those moments, those hours, those days, in which our Beloved Waheguru is not in our thougts, is all as good as Kaliyug, maya, mirtyu ... on the other hand, even in the darkest yuga, if He, the embodiment of Truth, of Sat, of Sach, is in our chit, then those moments, those hours, those days are accounted as Satyuga for us. The question is, whether we have Him with us, or have maya, means to have everything, but not Him. The choice is ours.
