  1. Playlist of questions and answers Bhai Simranjeet Singh Ji Tohana is doing with Naam Abhiyaasis. Very encouraging to listen to. It might be a good idea to download these videos in case they disappear in the future. Also, to translate them into english.
  2. Waheguru Also, right next to Sikhism it says "BAPTISM" that also needs to change. Do you think Taksal or other Sampradi should have already written and done research on this topic, on how to best translate Gurmat Terminology into English. They should have compiled a list of the most common words in Gurmat and there equivalent in English, so there will be no distortion. Why, do you think they have not done this already?
  3. Many of my writings explore this huge resistance in the public square to uncovering and embracing religious differences. I use the term “difference anxiety” to describe the psychological distress that stems from viewing differences as problematic rather than natural. There are deep-rooted reasons for this anxiety, a topic I explore in detail in my forthcoming book, The Audacity of Difference. Suffice it is to say here that any productive interfaith dialogue must first acknowledge and accept the distinctiveness of the spiritual, cultural and historical matrix of each civilization,and challenge the Western penchant for claiming universalism for itself. China and the Islamic world offer counter-examples to the claim that globalization must mean Westernization. Weming Tu of Harvard makes the point that Chinese civilization has its own paradigm for modernity based on Confucianism, and that this is not contingent on China’s Westernization. Islam, too, has its own alternative worldview including a distinct theology, sociology and political framework. A resistance to articulating and understanding differences, religious and otherwise, also comes from many Indians who are remarkably Eurocentric in their views. One hears many modern Indians ask: Aren’t we all really “the same”? What’s wrong with a “universal” point of view? Isn’t it wonderful that millions of Westerners practice yoga, and Indian cuisine has gone global? Additionally, fashionable academic constructs such as “post-modern,” “post-racial,” “post-religious” and “post-national” seem to announce the arrival of a flat, secularized world that is not differentiated by peoples’ histories, identities and religious points of view. My own enthusiasm to this confluence of cultures is balanced by the fact that this fusion does not always preserve diversity and is often inequitable. What remain intact are many structures that support power and that privilege the mythological, historical and religious beliefs of the West. I use the term “digestion” to describe the widespread dismantling, rearrangement and assimilation of a less powerful civilization into a dominant one. Like the food consumed by a host: what is useful gets assimilated into the host while what does not fit the host’s structure gets eliminated as waste. The West superimposes its concepts, aesthetics, language, paradigms, historical template and philosophy, positioning these as universal. The corresponding elements of the digested civilization get domesticated into the West, ceasing to exist in their own right. The result is that the consumed tradition, similar to the food, ceases to exist whereas the host gets strengthened. In harvesting the fruits of other civilizations, the West has often destroyed their roots, thereby killing their ability to produce more bountiful harvests. Native Americans and European pagans are among numerous examples of such previous digestions into the modern West. This process is often rationalized as the inevitable “march of civilization,” with the West positioned as the center of the world and the engine driving it forward. The non-Western civilizations are considered relevant only as sources “discovered” by the West (as in “our past”) or as theaters in which the West operates (“our civilizing mission”) or as threats to Western interests (“our frontiers”). Every civilization deserves a seat at the table as an equal and as the subject rather than only as the object of inquiry. Every religion and its assumptions, must like all other areas of human knowledge be subject to critique on a level playing field. None, however powerful and well-funded, ought to be exempt from scrutiny or be privileged to set the terms. In the realm of interfaith gatherings, we need forums where non-Christians may challenge the “universal” concepts being applied to all world religions, in the same manner as women, African-Americans and homosexuals have already achieved in their respective domains. I predict that in five years there will be such mainstream inter-religious discourse in which it will no longer be considered too controversial to challenge one another audaciously in the quest for honest understanding. The Audacity of Difference uncovers several profound metaphysical distinctions between dharmic and Western assumptions. This is not about superiority or inferiority but about positioning religious differences as humanity’s multifaceted experience and a shared resource.
  4. In the fashionable search for sameness in all religions, Holy Spirit in Christianity is often equated with Shakti or kundalini in Hinduism. However, these terms represent different, even incompatible cosmologies. Early Vedic literature describes a supreme being whose creative power (Shakti) manifests the universe. Shakti is subsequently systematized as the Universal Goddess with sophisticated theology and worship. She is the matrix and primordial material substance of the universe, its consciousness and power, and the agency differentiating all forms. In Christianity, though the Holy Spirit is also “within” the human, there is a strong emphasis on the descent from above or outside. Furthermore, unlike Shakti, the Holy Spirit is not seen as the essence of human selfhood (“soul”) or the essence of the cosmos. Christianity assumes an inherent dualism between God and creation. This necessitates historical revelations along with prophets, priests and institutions to bring us the truth. But Shakti, being all-pervading, obviates dependence on these; its experience can be discovered by going within through yoga. Since the universe is nothing but Shakti’s immanence, nearly every Hindu village worships its own form of the Goddess as the deity. Eco-feminism is built into the cosmology. Shakti is always available to be experienced in our physical body as a series of currents, with seven focal points called chakras. A powerful concentration of Shakti known as kundalini lies dormant at the base of everyone’s spine. Numerous spiritual techniques can arouse kundalini and channel it upward through the chakras, awakening one into unity consciousness. The human body is conceived differently in Christianity: on the one hand created in the image of God, yet it is also the means of transmitting original sin and lays a person open to “evil spirits.” In Hinduism, the guru helps awaken the disciple’s kundalini and integrate the experience into ordinary life. The experience is not interpreted through a specific history as in Christianity. Kundalini-like manifestations have occurred sporadically among Christians, but mainstream churches treat them as aberrations and even as the work of the devil. Those who have such experiences are conditioned to doubt their own sanity and are often regarded as mentally ill and even institutionalized. In Hinduism, there is no evil spirit or demonic Shakti. Rather, Shakti encompasses all polarities, being simultaneously one and many, light and dark, supportive and violently transformative; both sides of such pairs must be integrated in spirituality. Hinduism easily embraces the fierce, dark Kali alongside the nurturing Parvati. Christianity’s emphasis on good/evil dualism results in fear of possession by evil spirits. This is often projected onto heathen or pagan religions, and particularly onto Kali, whose aesthetics shock Westerners. The name of Jesus is sometimes invoked, or a Bible kept on hand, to get rid of such evil spirits. Hinduism sees that any negative effects of kundalini awakening stem from the individual’s preconditioning and nature, and not from evil spirits. Electricity is a helpful analogy. Neither inherently good nor evil, each electrical mechanism responds according to its own qualities. Yogis have fearlessly experimented with kundalini just as scientists do with electricity. Shakti is explicitly feminine and has myriad representations. The Holy Spirit has also at times been conceived as female, yet, Christianity’s most prominent female figure, the Virgin Mary, is not identical with the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit mysteriously incarnates Jesus in Mary’s womb, but this experience is exceptional and is impossible in other humans (whereas Shakti can be experienced by everyone). There are no spiritual practices designed to elicit Mary’s experience in all Christians, except metaphorically. Many cross-cultural experts draw a parallel between kundalini awakenings and the phenomena associated with Pentecostal worship. Like shaktipat, or guru-awakened kundalini, Pentecostal experiences can involve extreme bodily responses triggered by a charismatic leader. However, to contain the risk of heresies, these experiences are carefully coded within the context of the historical struggle for salvation from sin that is available only by the grace of Jesus. Unlike Shakti, the Holy Spirit is not experienced as one’s inner essence manifesting through personal yoga but as an external and transcendent force invoked by communal prayer. Pentecostals are especially alert to the danger of evil spirits, and warn against any spiritual experience coming from a non-Christian, making a Hindu guru especially suspect. Many Westerners have appropriated aspects of the Hindu Goddess to address issues within Christianity, in particular its patriarchy, institutions, weak ecological base and absence of yoga. While this is laudable, great care must be taken that core Hindu notions such as Shakti are not imported as mere “add-ons.” Dissecting the tradition into separate parts and digesting them selectively distorts the source. Shakti cannot be domesticated. The authentic acceptance of Shakti and kundalini by Christians is much more daunting and would entail rejecting centuries of Church inquisition against pluralistic manifestations of the divine. It would involve reinventing Christianity with the Goddess accessible directly as the Supreme Being. This would rekindle memories of paganism, polytheism and chaos.
  5. When the child at the time of birth comes out of the mother’s womb, the connection between the mind and the Creator at the umbilicus center gets severed. This end is called mool (the root). This forms one shore of the Bhavsagar. Gurbani says: mUl duAwrY bMiDAw bMDu ] At the root, the shore of Bhavsagar is controlled (like a dam). (SGGS 1159) The other shore of bhavsagar is located between the eyes (where there is an edge of sehaj sunn); the flow of vital air (pawan) keeps changing. On opening of the nine doors and vital air entering in through mouth. The mind then merges with the air. This spot forms the other shore of the Bhavsagar. shj guPw mih Awsxu bwiDAw ] After crossing the Bhavsagar, the mind sits in the cave of celestial bliss. (SGGS 370) The space between Dharan (belly button) and upper end of the Sukhmana channel is called Bhavsagar. duhw isirAw kw Awip suAwmI ] KylY ibgsY AMqrjwmI ] He Himself is the Master of both ends (Bhavsagar). He plays and He enjoys; He is the Inner-knower, of hearts. (SGGS 277) The Supreme Father maintains His subtle spiritual connection and union with the mind through the vital breath. So we have to engage in Waheguru (Guru’s shabad) Simran completely attuning and absorbing our consciousness in the vital air. Inhaling we have to chant ‘Wahe’ and listen attentively to the sound produced (dhun). When exhaling, chant ‘Guru’and listen to the sound with focused awareness. Thus chanting Gurmantra when inhaling and exhaling, wall of falsehood (between the mind and the supreme soul) will be demolished and the mind will cross over to the fourth dimension. (Chautha paad) Thus crossing the ocean of worldly desires, ambitions and craving (Bhavsagar). Rom Rom Simran: Consciousness manifests in every cell of the human body. It is this consciousness that yums (the minions of death) snatch out at the time of death. This results in agonizing pain. To escape this agony all manmukhs pray for mercy. But to escape Yums noose, we have to do rom rom Simran; so that, we can master the technique of withdrawing our consciousness from our cells and bring it back at will. In this way we can freely go to and come back from our Nij ghar (The Tenth Door, home of mind). This Simran (rom, rom Simran) is done only after one has become an adept in swaas, giraas technique (inhale, exhale method). In this method when surat (consciousness) has become attuned to the Shabad, breathing is briefly held and the sound of Gurmantra (Waheguru) is synchronized with the heartbeat. This will cause every cell to vibrate and resonate with the beat of the sound current of Gurmantra synchronized with the heartbeat. Gradually, every thing that one will come in contact with will seem to be chanting ‘Waheguru, Waheguru’in spontaneous and continuous stream of divine sound. This method of Simran is called ‘rom, rom simran.’ about this Gurbani says: gurmuiK roim roim hir iDAwvY The Gurmukh meditates on the Lord with every cell of his body. (SGGS 941) roim roim rivAw hir nwmu The Lord's Naam permeates each and every cell. (SGGS 1144)
  6. Anand Sahib Pauri – 2 Ay man mayri-aa too sadaa rahu har naalay. Har naal rahu too man mayray dookh sabh visaarnaa. Angeekaar oh karay tayraa kaaraj sabh savaarnaa. Sabhnaa galaa samrath su-aamee so ki-o manhu visaaray. Kahai naanak man mayray sadaa rahu har naalay. ||2|| (Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji 917) Bandagi (submission before God) of Sat PaarBraham Parmeshar (Truth, the Transcendent Lord and Creator of the Universe) is nothing but an act of emending one’s mind. By emending one’s mind is meant achieving victory over mind. By emending one’s mind is meant calming the mind. By emending one’s mind is meant to decimate the mind, to eradicate the mind, to transform the mind into Param Jyot (the divine light; soul; God Himself), to manifest Param Jyot in the mind. By emending one’s mind is meant the end of Manmat (state of being dictated by one’s mind; temptations), and the enlightenment of Gurmat (Gur’s wisdom, or God’s wisdom). By emending one’s mind is meant every deed of the human being taking place in accordance with Gurmat. By emending one’s mind is meant achieving victory over Maya (the worldly temptations; all physical perceptions are nothing but illusions created by Maya). By emending one’s mind is meant vanquishing lust, anger, greed, worldly attachments and pride, and extinguishing one’s Trishna (worldly desires). By emending one’s mind is meant obtaining Darshan (vision through our inner, spiritual eye) of Sat PaarBraham Parmeshar. By emending one’s mind is meant acquiring Puran Braham Gyan (perfect divine wisdom), Tat Gyan (divine knowledge; understanding of the divine ways) and Atam Ras Amrit (the highest form or the essence of Amrit; eternal bliss). By emending one’s mind is meant: attainment of Sehaj Samadhi (continual state of Samadhi – deep trance-like state, where there is no thought, nothing except pure consciousness – awake or asleep), attainment of Atal Awastha (the state of unshakable faith), attainment of Param Pad (the highest spiritual status), attainment of Sat Chit Anand (bliss of being in consciousness of Truth, the highest consciousness; eternal happiness), finding of “Sat” Guru (Sat is Eternal Truth – God Himself, and Guru means teacher and mentor; by “Sat” Guru is implied one who has accomplished Bandagi and attained Jeevan Mukti, and is divinely ordained to lead us on the path of Bandagi and Jeevan Mukti). It is this supremely powerful Katha (discourse) of cleansing one’s mind that SatGuru incarnate the blessed Amardas Ji (SatGuru the third Patshah Ji) has revealed in this Pauri (verse). A human mind is never quiet. A human mind chatters incessantly. That is, ideas and thoughts never cease to appear in the human mind. There is a constant stream of ideas in the human mind. It is these constantly appearing ideas in the human mind that take the shape of human deeds. The ideas and thoughts appearing in the human mind are of both good and bad nature. The good thoughts and ideas in one’s mind inspire the human being to engage in good deeds. The bad ideas appearing in one’s mind motivate the human being to indulge in evil acts. Everything taking place in everyday life of a human being occurs based upon these good and bad ideas. Often there is a mighty tempest brewing in this ocean of ideas. If it is the tempest of evil ideas, it leads the mind into distress. The sole reason behind distresses in the daily life of a human being is the tempest of evil ideas. The mind of a common person is slave to Maya. The chariot of the mind of a common person is driven by the five horses: lust, anger, greed, attachments and pride, and the reins of these five horses are held by Trishna. The destructive forces of Maya – the ever-blazing Trishna and the lust, anger, greed, attachments and pride – reside within body of the human being. The highly destructive force of Trishna abiding within the human being is the root cause of one’s sufferings, distresses, pains and troubles. In order to satisfy one’s Trishna a human being is compelled to act under the influence of lust, anger, greed, attachments and pride. Maya, in the garb of Trishna, keeps the human mind ever-occupied in plotting ways to satisfy one’s Trishna. In this state, the ideas that gain strength are the ones which become the cause of human deeds, and this is how a human being shapes one’s ideas into deeds. The entire world is ablaze in this destructive inferno of Trishna. As a human being fulfils one desire, ten more materialize. But all that a human being receives is what is written in one’s destiny. When a human being satisfies a desire, he or she is happy for a while. But when the human being is unable to fulfil one’s desires, he or she is mentally stressed and this mental tension turns into mental ailments. Gradually these mental ailments develop into physical maladies and cause the human body to decay. GurBani reveals this supremely essential truth: Tarisnaa agan jalai sansaaraa. (Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji 1044) When a human being acts under the influence of lust, anger, greed, attachments and pride (Panj Dhoots; the five thieves) in order to satisfy one’s Trishna, all such deeds performed by him or her are Asat Karam (untruthful deeds; deeds against Sat). Panj Dhoots are the highly destructive forces of Maya that make their home within the human body itself. This is why GurBani refers to lust, anger, greed, attachments and pride as Chandaals (lowlifes; villains): Panch chandaal naalay lai aa-i-aa. ||4|| (Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji 1348) Kaam krodh tan vaseh chandaal. (Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji 24) Kaam krodh kaa-i-aa ka-o gaalai. Ji-o kanchan sohaagaa dhaalai. (Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji 932) Chandaal denotes a form of these highly destructive forces making their home in the human body. Lust implies that, when a human being (man or woman) seeks gratification outside marital bonds, he or she falls prey to Chandaal of lust. (Dass – the narrator – speaks from his own experience with Sangat – i.e. congregation; gathering of the followers – that this deadly Chandaal of lust afflicts everybody tremendously, from the children of small ages to the married and unmarried young girls and young boys, the middle-aged men and women and even older men and women. The unmarried young and the children of today are under mighty influence of this Chandaal of lust. The problem of lust among unwed children is a serious issue. Therefore it is very essential to disseminate this Puran Braham Gyan about Chandaal of lust. Chandaal of lust resides in the genitalia parts of the human body. Chandaal of anger resides in the stomach of the human being. Chandaals of greed and attachments reside in the chest of the human being. Chandaal of pride is the most destructive of all – it makes its home in the head of the human being. All these five Chandaals keep the human body in their complete hold, and thus busy themselves in the destruction of the entire human body. The assaults by all these Chandaals leave a very deep and disastrous impact upon the human mind and brain. The surprising part is that the human being remains unaware of the disastrous attacks of these five Chandaals. When Chandaal of lust overpowers the human being, part of the human body that belongs to the sexual organs sears in the flame of lust. If a human being repeatedly falls prey to Chandaal of lust, this deadly flame of lust leaves a disastrous impact upon the human mind, upon the sexual organs and upon all other related parts of the body. As one gets more and more trapped in the clutches of Chandaal of lust, the human being descends deeper in mental stress. Gradually this mental stress takes the form of a dangerous mental ailment. This mental ailment has a disastrous effect upon the sexual organs in the human body, because of which these and the other parts of the body begin to fall prey to diseases. Gradually these diseases at times take a dangerous turn, and result even in death of the human being. (Fatal diseases like Cancer and Syphilis are the gifts by Chandaal of lust). This is how the intoxication by (Chandaal of) lust afflicts a human being with diseases, and these diseases cause the human body to decay. Therefore when a human being acts under the directions of Chandaal of lust, such deeds turn out to be Asat Karams because, at such times, Chandaal of lust takes the role of Guru (teacher and mentor) of the human being. Therefore do not allow Chandaal of lust to be your Guru; always keep “Sat” as your Guru. With the finding of “Sat” Guru, a human being receives GurParsaad (eternal bliss and eternal grace) of SatNaam Simran (meditation upon SatNaam – Truth as a manifestation of the Name of God). One effective means of protecting oneself from this destructive disease of lust is that – outside one’s marital bonds – a man must regard all women as a daughter, sister or mother, and a woman must regard all men as a son, brother or father. With SatNaam Simran and such similar conduct, a human being will cease to get evil ideas in one’s mind under the influence of Chandaal of lust, and gradually the mind will overcome this destructive Dhoot of lust and be transformed into Jati (one with control over lust; one who restrains his power of procreation; one who has taken a vow of celibacy). With SatNaam Simran, a human being comes to possess that GurParsaadi (graced by God and Guru) supreme power which makes a human being conscious of Chandaal of lust. The human being gets the understanding of the conduct of Chandaal of lust. With Gur Parsaad of SatNaam Simran, a human being acquires the supreme power with which to battle with Chandaal of lust, and to defeat this highly destructive Dhoot. Thus when a human being engages in Asat Karams, “Asat” (not Sat) assumes the role of one’s Guru. That is, when a human being acts under the influence of lust in order to satisfy one’s Trishna of lust, at such time lust is acting as one’s Guru. Kaam krodh tan vaseh chandaal. (Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji 24) Antar krodh chandaal so ha-umai. (Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji 1042-1043) Man meh krodh mahaa ahankaaraa. (Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji 1348) When a human being, influenced by anger, becomes angry at oneself or at others, at such times anger is acting as one’s Guru. A human being gets angry when one’s pride is hurt. A human being is slave to one’s ego, and one gets angry in order to assuage Trishna of pride. But the foolish human being does not realize that anger is Chandaal, and this Chandaal in the form of anger does nothing but singe one’s own body and mind. Anger is a great enemy of the human being. The enmity of anger sometimes besieges a human being for a long duration of time. Anger leaves a prolonged and destructive impact on the human body and mind. At times the destructive impact of anger turns into a lifelong hostility, and the human being sears in the fire of Chandaal of anger all one’s life. The cause of all the tragedies that have taken place in the world is nothing but pride and anger. Hostilities between the human beings, antagonism between brothers, all domestic strife are caused by nothing but pride and anger. This is why pride is called as a serious malady, and anger is termed as Chandaal in Gurbani. Thus the steeds of pride and anger propel the human mind towards destructive tendencies, and make a human being commit Asat Karams under the influence of pride and anger. When a human being leans upon Chandaal of anger in order to satisfy the disastrous passion of ego, at such times both these deadly Dhoots of Maya are acting as one’s Gurus. Chandaal of anger resides in the stomach of the human being, and Chandaal of pride resides in one’s head. Thus when a human being, in order to quench the passion of Chandaal of pride, is compelled to depend upon Chandaal of anger, these Chandaals leave a highly destructive impact upon the human body. The human mind and all parts of the body sear in the fire of Chandaal of anger, and thus both mind and body of the human being fall prey to ailments. These disastrous ailments cause the human body to decay. The human body falls prey to fatal diseases. This is the sole reason that the humankind today is besieged by such dangerous and deadly diseases. All the deeds committed under the influence of Chandaals of pride and anger are Asat Karams. When a human being commits Asat Karams under the influence of Chandaals of pride and anger, at such time the human being follows Chandaals of pride and anger as one’s Gurus. Therefore do not let Chandaals of pride and anger to assume the role of your Gurus and adopt “Sat” as your Guru, with whose immense divine and sacred supreme power a human being can vanquish Chandaals of pride and anger and attain Jeevan Mukti (deliverance from the cycle of births-and-deaths; salvation). Practise modesty in your life. Practice humbleness of Hirda (literally meaning heart, Hirda actually denotes one of the seven Sat Sarovars, and is more a part of our spiritual being than of our physical body) in your life. Humbleness of Hirda and extreme modesty destroys the greatly disastrous Chandaal of pride and rids a human being of the grave disease of ego. The exercise of modesty, humbleness of Hirda and humility in one’s life are the weapons that annihilate Chandaal of pride nesting in one’s head. Since pride and anger of a human being are complementary to each other, destruction of Chandaal of pride also results in the destruction of Chandaal of anger lodged in one’s stomach. Practice Simran of SatNaam in your life. By Simran of SatNaam a human being acquires the wisdom of exercising modesty, humility and humbleness of Hirda in one’s life, as well as achieves the power to wield this divine and sacred weapon in one’s everyday life. With SatNaam Simran the supreme power of GurParsaad materializes in the life of a human being, by which he or she exercises modesty, humility and humbleness of Hirda in one’s life, crushes the head of Chandaal of pride and vanquishes this disastrous Chandaal. Exercise of modesty, humility and humbleness of Hirda in one’s life alone bears the supreme power that brings a human being to the doorsteps of Dargah (Divine Court). Chandaal of greed and Chandaal of attachments reside in the chest of the human being. Greed denotes accumulation of wealth and riches through Asat Karams in order to satisfy one’s Trishna. Greed denotes lack of Sat Santokh (divine contentedness; state of humility and absence of desires) in one’s Dassan Nahuwan Di Kamai (earnings from the ten nails of the hand, i.e., hard-earned money), and amassing of wealth by committing Asat Karams. Indulging in bribe-taking, cheating, stealing, extortion, abuse of one’s position, exploitation, profiteering and wrongful religious preaching etc. in order to gather wealth are all Asat Karams and make a human being prey to Chandaal of greed. There is nothing wrong in accumulation of wealth. But when the human being accumulates wealth as a slave to Chandaal of greed, it results into Asat Karam; which in due course become the cause of one’s suffering, distress and troubles. As a human being gathers wealth by committing Asat Karams, one begins to crave more and more after accumulation of riches. Accumulation of wealth by easy means, without any hard-work, never satisfies one’s Trishna, but only makes it stronger. The wealth and assets accumulated through Asat Karams work as a poison in the life of the human being. The riches earned from Asat Karams never bring a human being prosperity, rather such wealth and riches cause suffering, distress and troubles and make one’s life hell. The riches and assets accumulated by Asat Karams leave a deeply disastrous impact upon the human mind and body. Repeatedly indulging in Asat Karams under the influence of Chandaal of greed in order to accumulate wealth and riches, a human being loses one’s peace of mind and causes one’s body to fall prey to diseases. Thus continuing with collection of wealth through Asat Karams, the greed takes the form of a deadly mental ailment. A human being in the clutches of Chandaal of greed doesn’t realize when one’s Asat Karams committed under greed make one’s mind dangerously ill, and make one’s body fall prey to fatal diseases. When a human being commits Asat Karams under the influence of Chandaal of greed in order to gain wealth and riches, at such times “Chandaal of greed” is acting as one’s Guru. The question necessarily arises in the mind of a human being as to how one can get rid of Chandaal of greed. Chandaal of greed is vanquished with the divine weapon of Sat Santokh. Only by practising Sat Santokh in one’s life a human being destroys the seed of Trishna in one’s mind. Only Sat Santokh carries the supreme power that crushes the head of Chandaal of greed, and calms the mind of a human being. A human being acquires Sat Santokh in one’s life by the grace of SatGuru. Only by finding “Sat” Guru a human being comes to acquire GurPrasad of SatNaam Simran and Simran. Only by SatNaam Simran a human being realizes the means to get rid of Chandaal of greed, and he or she absorbs one’s Birti (consciousness; tendencies) into Sat Karams. Only by SatNaam Simran a human being comes to have faith in one’s Dassan Nahuwan Di Kamai, and realizes Santokh (satisfaction) in one’s mind. Only by SatNaam Simran and by dedicating Dassvandh (one-tenth) of one’s earnings at the feet of Satguru a human being’s mind attains Sat Santokh. The earnings from where Dassvandh is drawn and dedicated at Satguru’d feet bring enormous prosperity, and the human being never is in any want. Therefore do not let greed be your Guru and adopt “Sat” as your Guru so that your mind acquires lasting peace. The highly destructive power of Chandaal of attachments dwells in the chest of the human being. Only by realizing and accepting this supremely essential truth – as to how the deadly power of Chandaal of attachments operates in one’s daily life and how it turns one’s domestic life into hell – will a human being will lead a happy domestic life. Every common person living upon earth spends every moment of one’s life in the fear and worry of losing one thing or another. Every human being is worried about one’s family bonds and fears about them breaking or going sour. A human being doesn’t even trust one’s own kin. A husband and wife are tormented by the fear of losing each-other, or of souring of their relationship. Lack of trust in each-other in even as sacred a bond as the husband-wife’s is what turns life into hell. The husband regards wife with suspicion and the wife is always in the fear of losing the husband. The parents are always worried about relationships with their sons and daughters. The parents don’t have trust in their own sons and daughters, and fear of their relationships with their children turning sour. The fear of whether they will be cared after by their sons and daughters in their old age makes a human being unhappy in life. After marrying their son, the parents are troubled by the fear of their daughter-in-law keeping their son away from them. After marrying one’s daughter, the worry about her husband and the fear of the daughter’s relationship with her husband going sour keeps one forever worried about the future of one’s daughter. Once the sons and daughters are married, the person is besieged by worries of one’s grandsons and granddaughters. The education and the future of one’s grandsons and granddaughters keeps a human being forever worried. Sons and daughters do not trust their parents. Sons and daughters keep worrying about the relationships with their parents turning sour. Similar are the cases of stress among brothers and sisters for lack of trust amongst each-other, and the fear of their relationships turning sour. Moreover, a human being constantly worries about one’s livelihood. The fear of loss in business, worries of jobs and promotions, fear of loss of wealth, fear of loss of worldly objects and possessions, fear and worry about lack of money in one’s old age etc. keep the life of a human being filled with worries and fear. Thus the sole cause of constant worry and fear of a human being is nothing but Chandaal of attachments. It is the nature of Chandaal of attachments to constantly besiege a human being with worries and fear. The attachment with worldly relations and objects is the sole vocation of Chandaal of attachments. The worry and fear of loss (because of Chandaal of attachments) of all that is perishable and all that is transitory makes the life of the human being hell. A human being destroys one’s life in such worries and fear, and till the last moments one doesn’t realize that one’s life has been wasted away because of Chandaal of attachments. Chandaal of attachments chases a human being not only during one’s lifetime, but also after one is dead. In one’s last moments the state of the human being’s mind under the influence of Chandaal of attachments makes a profound and disastrous impact upon one’s rebirth. The human being who worries about wealth in one’s last moments gets reborn in the species of serpents. A man who lusts after women in his last moments is reborn as a prostitute. A human being worrying about one’s sons and daughters in last moments is born as a pig in one’s next birth. The human being who is worried about one’s worldly possessions in one’s last moments receives the deadliest and most-terrifying of all sentences – he or she is made to live as a ghost. The life as a ghost is the most painful of all lifetimes, and lasts a very long time (thousands of years). In one’s lifetime as a ghost one is made to pass through immensely terrifying punishments. As a ghost the human being suffers unimaginable punishments. The story of the life of ghost makes a painful and dreadful reading. For food one has to eat the bones of dead animals, excreta of humans and animals, ashes of the dead bodies etc. For abode one hangs from trees, or stays at graveyards, or dwells in such places as old and deserted ruins, old funeral sites and wild desolate forests. The souls sentenced to pass through the species of ghost are forbidden to enter a Sat Sangat (congregation in the company of Sat, or those who have attained salvation and transformed themselves into Sat). They are cursed to be set afire if, even unwittingly, they go near the Sangat of a Sant (saint). The ghosts are unable to withstand the radiance of Sants the great-beings. Such ghosts and spirits number in tens of millions and they are engaged in spreading Kur (falsehood) in the whole world. The areas haunted by the ghosts, or the places where they used to live as human beings, fall prey to their destructive deeds. Making the human beings who live at such places victims of their destructive powers, they make the lives of these human beings hell. They even prey upon the people belonging to the families where they were born in their previous lives. They go to the extent of taking the lives of their own brothers and sisters, sons and daughters and grandsons and granddaughters. They sow seeds of discord among their previous families and turn the lives of those families into hell. Such is the terrible end that awaits those who die while ensnared in the clutches of this Chandaal of attachments. The blessed Bhagat Trilochan Ji (a saint; author of 4 Shabads in GurBani) has revealed this supreme truth in this supremely powerful Salok (verse) of his Bani (in GurBani): Ant kaal jo lachhmee simrai aisee chintaa meh jay marai. Sarap jon val val a-utarai. ||1|| Aree baa-ee gobid naam mat beesrai. Rahaa-o. Ant kaal jo istaree simrai aisee chintaa meh jay marai. Baysvaa jon val val a-utarai. ||2|| Ant kaal jo larhikay simrai aisee chintaa meh jay marai. Sookar jon val val a-utarai. ||3|| Ant kaal jo mandar simrai aisee chintaa meh jay marai. Parayt jon val val a-utarai. ||4|| Ant kaal naaraa-in simrai aisee chintaa meh jay marai. Badat tilochan tay nar muktaa peetambar vaa kay ridai basai. ||5||2|| (Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji 526) The human being who, in one’s last moments, engrosses oneself in Naam Simran of Sat PaarBraham Parmeshar attains Param Gat (supreme state; deliverance). But the problem arises that a common person who is steeped in the slavery of lust, anger, greed, attachments and pride and whose Trishna remains unsatisfied, how and why such a person will remember Sat PaarBraham Parmeshar in one’s last moments, when one’s Surat (consciousness; mind) remains embedded in the worldly object. Therefore only such a human being remembers Sat PaarBraham Parmeshar whose Hirda is enlightened by SatNaam. Only such a human being who is immersed in Bhagati of Sat PaarBraham Parmeshar doesn’t forget SatNaam in one’s last moments by the grace of Sat PaarBraham Parmeshar, and only such a human being attains Param Gat. Such is the sorrowful tale of the destructive powers of mind, which make a human being defenceless and helpless. The human being, who comes to grasp this story of mind and Maya, is able to turn one’s Birti towards Sat Karams. When the human mind is submerged in Trishna and in the slavery of the five Chandaals, then the mind itself is transformed into Maya and, merging itself with these destructive forms of Maya, destroys the life of the human being. When the human mind practises Sat by immersing in Bandagi of Sat PaarBraham Parmeshar, then by GurParsaadi GurKirpa (divine benevolence with His grace) the human being accomplishes Bandagi, is forever assimilated in Sat PaarBraham Parmeshar, is transformed into Jyot (the divine light) and forever takes the form of Sat Chit Anand. Thus when a human being adopts Trishna and the five Chandaals (lust, anger, greed, attachments and pride) as one’s Guru, he or she wastes away one’s life in the entanglements of these destructive forms of Maya; and when a human being adopts “Sat” as Guru, then he or she engages oneself in Sat Karams, finds “Sat” Guru, transforms oneself into Sat Roop (Sat in human form), transforms oneself into Anand Roop (form of Sat Chit Anand; divine bliss in human form) and is forever absorbed in Sat. When the human mind thinks of one’s body, made out of the five-elements, as being everything, and is engrossed in one’s body alone, then such a human being wastes away one’s life in serving and in caring after this form of Maya. Such a human being becomes prey to the five Chandaals (lust, anger, greed, attachments and pride) in order to satisfy one’s Trishna, and squanders one’s life. But a human being who achieves victory over mind, i.e. achieves victory over the five Chandaals (lust, anger, greed, attachments and pride) and quenches one’s Trishna, his or her mind assumes the form of Param Jyot and attains lasting happiness. Such a human being acquires Puran Braham Gyan, Puran Tat Gyan and Atam Ras Amrit. This supremely essential truth is revealed by the blessed Sant Kabir Patshah Ji (Sant Kabir Das Ji) in his following supreme Sat Bachans (words of truth; divine words): Ih man saktee ih man see-o. Ih man panch tat ko jee-o. Ih man lay ja-o unman rahai. Ta-o teen lok kee baatai kahai. ||33|| (Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji 342) By accumulating Sat Karams, a human being finds “Sat” Guru. By surrendering one’s body, mind and worldly possessions at the feet of “Sat” Guru, the human being receives GurParsaad and begins one’s Bandagi. By Bandagi is meant that SatNaam is firmly established in one’s Surat, and the human being acquires Suhaag (acceptance in Dargah as a devotee). The human being attains Samadhi (deep trance-like state, where there is no thought, nothing except pure consciousness). During Samadhi, when the human being abides in prolonged SatNaam Simran, all his or her Bajjar Kapaats (divine doors that – once opened –channel Amrit into the body and establish connection between human being and Akaal Purakh) are opened up. He or she attains Sunn Samadhi (silent, deep meditation; a state free of thoughts, free even from the effects of time and space). By practising SatNaam while in Sunn Samadhi, the mind of the human being is thoroughly cleansed. SatNaam permeates every cell of the body. The entire body is suffused in Amrit (our essence or the life-element; the divine energy). Hirda attains Puran Sachyari Rehat (total compliance with Sat). Trishna is extinguished. By vanquishing Chandaals of lust, anger, greed, attachments and pride, the mind is transformed into Param Jyot, and thus the human mind achieves victory over Maya, arrives at Chautha Pad (fourth state; a state beyond the three aspects of Maya) and obtains Darshan of Akaal Purakh (Immortal Being; God). The human being obtains Darshan of Nirgun in Sargun (the two parts of Akaal Purakh; Nirgun represents God beyond the Trigun Maya, observed only through one’s spiritual eye, and Sargun is the divine power present in every creation and sustaining it. Seeing Nirgun in Sargun describes the state where one realizes that all physical creations are part of Sargun, but are created and run by Nirgun – this realization is the Puran Braham Gyan and Puran Tat Gyan). The human being attains Puran Braham Gyan. The human being attains Atam Ras Amrit. Thus when Bandagi of a human being is accomplished and is approved in Dargah and the human being attains Jeevan Mukti, then that human being achieves victory over mind and achieves victory over the entire world, which is nothing but Maya. In this state, the mind of the human being is transformed into Param Jyot, and one’s own existence is effaced. Not even for a moment is Sat PaarBraham Parmeshar out of one’s mind. Sat PaarBraham Parmeshar manifests Himself in the form of Pargateyo Jyot (a manifested divine light; a soul that becomes the pure divine light of God Himself) in Hirda of the human being. After this, the human being sees nothing but Sat PaarBraham Parmeshar in all nature and in all creatures. The blessed SatGuru incarnate Amardas Ji bestows upon the entire humanity the wisdom to make Ardas (humble prayer) for attaining such a supremely powerful state. Do make Ardas that we find “Sat” Guru, so that we are able to transform our mind into Param Jyot and forever absorb it in the feet of Sat PaarBraham Parmeshar. When this Ardas of ours is granted and we have found “Sat” Guru, we shall be freed of the bonds of births-and-deaths, which is the biggest agony for all creatures in all species. With Jeevan Mukti, a human being puts an end to all one’s sufferings, distresses and problems. Only when one conquers Maya, Maya turns into one’s servant. As long as the human being is slave to Maya, and is ruled by the bonds of Karma (destiny determined by one’s good and bad deeds), one will receive and accomplish only that which is written in one’s destiny in accordance with one’s past deeds. When one conquers Maya, the bonds of Karma are broken and this marks the real birth of the human being. When the human being attains Jeevan Mukti, it is at this point that the life of the human being really begins. There is no end to one’s sufferings and distresses while one is in the slavery of Trishna and the five Chandaals, but when Trishna is extinguished and the five Chandaals are vanquished, there is no end to bliss in the life of the human being. When Maya lands at the feet of the human being, all one’s endeavours are successfully accomplished. When the human being conquers Maya, transcends beyond Trigun Maya (Maya of the three attributes: Sato – the goodness viz. charity, compassion and contentment; Rajo – the desires viz. hopes, expectations and yearnings; and Tamo – the vices viz. lust, anger, greed, attachments and pride), arrives at Chautha Pad and becomes one with Nirgun Saroop of Akaal Purakh, then Sat PaarBraham Parmeshar Himself facilitates every endeavour of the human being. The biggest endeavour of the human being is achieving triumph over Maya and attaining Jeevan Mukti, and when this endeavour is successful, the rest of the endeavours are automatically accomplished. When the human being is turned indistinguishable from Sarab Kalaa Samarth (proficient with all crafts and competencies) Sat PaarBraham Parmeshar, then nothing more is left to be achieved and everything has been successfully accomplished. In this state, Sat PaarBraham Parmeshar is never, not even for a moment, out of the human being’s mind. Every cell of the human being’s body is absorbed in Simran, and one’s entire body is suffused and radiant with Amrit.
  7. Uniting Nirgun and Sargun in Sunn Samadhi is a very high spiritual stage. When an ordinary person is blessed with it, they are transformed into a Sat Hirda. This is what happens when our Ardas is heard in the Dargah and we are blessed with this GurParsaad. This is a GurParsaad of a very high order. When the Nirgun and Sargun become one in an ordinary person then a Puran Sant Hirda is born. When an ordinary Hirda is transformed into a Sat Hirda in all physical and divine senses, then a Puran Braham Gyani comes into existence in the world. When the Nirgun and Sargun becomes one inside a person moving on the Bandgi path, He completes His Bandgi and is blessed with Puran Braham Gyan and achieves the Param Padvi. Nirgun is the One who is beyond the three aspects of Maya and cannot be seen with the physical eyes. He can only be seen and experienced with the divine eye, Dib Drisht – Gyan Netter. Nirgun is the divine super infinite power that we call “Ik Oankaar Sat Naam Karta Purakh Nirbhao Nirvair Akal Murat Ajuni Saibhun(g).” Sargun is the One who is present in every creation and operates the creation. This is the divine power that runs every creation. In human beings it is the life element, it is the soul that runs the physical body. It is the divine power present in the form of Sat Sarovars as a part of the Suksham Dehi which is the soul. This divine power is responsible for making us breath and pumping our heart. It keeps all of the organs of the body functioning and the body alive. In the same way this divine infinite power is present in every creation and keeps the creation running and operating. This divine power keeps the fire contained in the wood. The same divine power keeps hydrogen and oxygen together and makes it water. However, these are two completely incompatible elements and cannot be stored together. One is highly combustible and the other one is a catalyst for fire, but they are held together in the form of water which sustains life. Nirgun and Sargun become one when we are blessed with this divine wisdom that our physical body, which is part of Sargun, has been created by the Nirgun and is being run by the Nirgun which is the Infinite Divine Power – Dhan Dhan Paar Braham Parmeshwar Ji. This divine wisdom is called the Puran Tat Gyan, Puran Braham Gyan. Just as our physical body, which is Sargun, is the creation of the Creator and is run by Akal Purakh’s Nirgun Infinite Divine Power, so in the same way, every creation is created by the Creator and also run by His Infinite Divine Power. The Infinite Divine Power that runs the individual creations, being present in individual creations, is called His Sargun Saroop. The Infinite Divine Power that is beyond the three aspects of Maya is called His Nirgun Saroop. When the barrier of Maya is removed, then there remains no difference between the two. Sargun and Nirgun become one within us and such a soul merges with the Nirgun Saroop and becomes one with God. It is the Divine Truth that when we go beyond the three aspects of Maya and defeat Maya and kill our Haumai, then we being Sargun become one with Nirgun. Then there remains no difference between Nirgun and Sargun. This means merger in God. Also, since every creation is run by this Sargun Infinite Divine Power, this is how Akal Purakh is omnipresent and runs the entire creation. When Nirgun and Sargun become one in a person moving on this divine path of Bandgi, then the mind, Hirda, soul and body is taken over by the Infinite Divine Power and that person goes into a state of complete silence. This is a state completely free of thoughts and is called Sunn Samadhi. This is the highest level of Simran because when this happens then the entire mind, Hirda, soul and body goes into Naam Simran and is absorbed in Amrit. When we go into Sunn Samadhi then we are unable to tell how much time has passed. There remains no effect of time and space. In fact, we go beyond time and space during that period when our mind, Hirda, soul and body goes into complete silence. This stage of Bandgi has been called Maha Parmarath in GurBani. “Sunn samaadh maha parmarath,” this means that Sunn Samadhi is the most rewarding state of mind, Hirda, soul and body. When we go into Sunn Samadhi then whatever may be happening physically around us does not register. We do not hear anything; we have no thoughts at all in our mind and our Hirda, soul and body are filled with Amrit – we are in a state of complete eternal bliss. In Sunn Samadhi, our mind, Hirda, soul and body enters into complete peace and wherever there is complete peace there is complete silence and God appears right there and then. Our Rom Rom vibrates with Naam. Every cell of our body enters into Naam Simran. Our body is filled with Amrit. All of our Sat Sarovars become enlightened and overflow with Amrit. All of our Bajjar Kapaats open, including the Dassam Duaar and we are blessed with Panch Shabad Anhad Naad music in our Dassam Duaar on a continuous basis. This stage of spirituality and divine bliss is basically, beyond description, it can only be experienced and cannot be explained. When Nirgun and Sargun become one then there is a complete takeover of our mind, Hirda, soul and body by the Infinite Divine Power and all of our senses and body come under the Puran Hukam of Akal Purakh Ji. Those who are blessed with the GurParsaad of Naam, Naam Simran, Naam Ki Kamai, Puran Bandgi and Seva, when focused on Naam Simran for long sessions go into Sunn Samadhi in a short period of time. The ones who dedicate and surrender themselves completely to the Guru with Tunn, Munn and Dhann are blessed with this stage of Bandgi very soon. Please keep in mind that your dedication and surrender at the Sat Charans of your Guru is not complete unless these actions are filled with trust, devotion and love for your Guru and also that there is no difference between the Guru and God. The ones who think that there is no difference between God and Guru are blessed with the GurParsaad of Sunn Samadhi very soon. The various stages of Naam Simran are explained with GurParsaad next. Please take some time to read this divine writing and to benefit from it. There are people whose life hae been totally transformed by Guru Daata Karta just by reading this divinely blessed writing. The Stages Of Naam Simran Ajapa Jaap is the spiritual condition of a person when Naam Simran goes on automatically in their Surat and then in their Hirda and so on as explained below. It means that Simran doesn’t stop at any moment day or night even whilst sleeping, talking, walking or eating. It carries on internally automatically and such a condition only comes with the GurKirpa and after a lot of Bhagti Kamai or can also be more easliy attained with the Kirpa of a Puran Braham Gyani. The normal sequence is as follows:- 1. Jaap (reciting) with the tongue (Rasna). This happens in Dharam Khand. 2. Jaap with the breath (Swaas). This happens in Gyan Khand and Saram Khand 3. Naam goes into your mind (Surat), into your thinking. It now becomes internal Simran and is no longer oral Jaap. This is a very good stage. This happens in Saram Khand and Karam Khand. Some people go into Samadhi at this stage. 4. Simran goes into the Hirda. This a much higher stage. This is where it goes on automatically and where the real Bhagti starts. One goes into Samadhi and Sunn Samadhi. This happens in Karam Khand. When you go into Samadhi the real Bhagti starts because your Bhagti account is opened in Dargah. 5. Simran travels to the Nabhi Chakra (navel area) and the Nabhi Kamal (lotus) blossoms. This is also in Karam Khand 6. Simran goes into the base of the spine area called the Mooladhaar Chakra and activates the Kundalini Shakti to rise up the spine. This is also in Karam Khand 7. Simran travels up through the spine to the brain area and back into the Surat where it completes the cycle. This is what the real Mala of Naam is. When this happens then the Gyan Netter and Dassam Duaar open and you form a permanent connection with Akal Purakh. You start to get the Braham Gyan directly from God. This happens in Sach Khand. The Anand (enjoyment) in Samadhi and Sunn Samadhi is beyond description. That is why the Maha Purakhs go into very deep meditation some time for days on end. You experience a lot of things during your Samadhi and Sunn Samadhi; see a lot of things; meet a lot of Sants and Gurus; see Param Jyot; have conversations with the Sants and Akal Purakh and even more that is beyond description. This is the stage when all of the divine doors, the Bajjar Kapaats are opened and there is a continuous flow of Amrit filling the body. 8. The Simran in Samadhi and Sunn Samadhi continues until Nirgun and Sargun become one. At this point Simran goes into Rom Rom, meaning that every bit of your body does Naam Simran. Your Suksham Dehi becomes as pure as gold. Your entire body is drenched with Naam Amrit all of the time. You become Braham Leen (absorbed in God) and reach the Atal Awastha. These stages are beyond description and GurBani explains it best, “Sat chit anand ghar hamare,” “Gurmukh rom rom har dhyae,” and “Sargun nirgun nirankaar sunn samadhi aap, apan kia nanka apan hi fir jaap.” One lives in Puran Parkash all of the time and listens to Ilahi Kirtan (divine inner Kirtan) all of the time. It is just an incredible experience. This is when one becomes Sat Ram Dass and is directed by the Almighty to serve the Sangat. This is what your target should be when you have been prompted to move on the Bhagti Marg. Just to illustrate how much more powerful one stage is than another, we can put it like this:- 1000 x Naam Jaap with the Rasna = 1 Naam Jaap with the Swaas. 1000 x Naam Jaap with the Swaas = 1 Naam Simran in the Surat. 1000 x Naam Simran in the Surat = 1 Naam Simran in the Hirda and beyond. Doing Simran in the Hirda and beyond is the most rewarding. Just doing Naam Simran once in the Hirda is 1000,000,0000 times more powerful than doing 1 Jaap with the Rasna.. Some people may think that we are getting into counting the benefit and it is correct to say that we should not indulge in counting how much Simran we have done as God is beyond calculations and it will just lead us into ego. However, this example is just a way to make the Sangat understand the differences between Jaap and Simran of Naam. The numbers above are not exact calculations, but just a way of saying that the rewards of doing Naam Simran in the Hirda are phenomenally higher than doing Jaap with the Rasna or Swaas. However, for beginners if you do Jaap with you Rasna, your Rasna will become Pavitter – holy. By doing Jaap along with your Swaas, your Swaas will become Pavitter. By doing Naam Simran in your Surat, your mind will become Pavitter. This is exactly what you need to do to make your mind Pavitter. This is how you will gain control over your mind, “Munn jeete jag jeet,” “Munn tu jyot saroop hai.” This is how you will be able to rise above the mental sicknesses of Panj Doots, Trishna, Nindya, Chugli, Bakhili, Raj, Joban, Dhann, Maal, Roop, Ras and Gandh. When Naam Simran goes into the Hirda it does so by itself under GurKirpa and makes the Hirda Pavitter. A Pavitter Hirda then becomes Maha Parupkari and Dana Dina, Nirbhao, Nirvair and so on. It begins absorbing all of Akal Purakh’s vital qualities and becomes a Puran Sant Hirda. It achieves Jivan Mukti which is the Param Padvi and receives the Braham Gyan direct from Braham. One does not become a Sant by wearing a Chola (white religious dress, symbols, long hair, turban, mala and so on) and following religious rituals and conducting religious ceremonies. The true definition of a Sant is the Hirda that becomes Puran Sachyara (completely full of Truth). The Hirda becomes a Sant when the Naam Rattan (jewel of Naam) goes into the Hirda and becomes the foundation stone. Please try to understand what a Sant truly is and pray to get the Naam Rattan planted into your Hirda too. After being planted in the Hirda the Naam goes into the Nabhi and spine and so on. All of this happens by itself under GurKirpa and not by our own efforts. It will only happen under Hukam. The higher state of Amrit is Naam Amrit and “Prabh ka simran sabh te uncha,” “Har simran me aap nirankaara,” “Kinka ek jis jee basave taki mahima gani naa aawe,” “Har ke naam samsr kichu naahin,” “Tudh baajh kudo kood,” “Eh dhan sancho howo bhagwant.” So please try to make your life cleaner by rising above the Panj Doots, killing your desires and not indulging in Nindya. Rise above all the doubts, Dubidha and Dharam Ke Bharams. Follow the Braham Gyan of GurBani in your daily lives. Become a Puran Sachyara, serve the Truth and achieve your goal of Jivan Mukti. You will make more progress on this path by following and living according to GurBani. Simran is the most important ingredient in GurBani. By living according to GurBani and doing more and more Simran, you become more and more Sachyara – full of Truth. Your Atmik Awastha (spiritual state) will keep on moving upwards through the five Khands and in Sach Khand you will reach Chad Di Klaa. This is a very high stage of spirituality. It is the completeness stage. It comes only after reaching the Atal Awastha. This is when the soul is always in the Nirlep Awastha meaning that it cannot be distracted or deviated no matter what is happening around you. Regardless of what is going on around you no doubts and Bharams come inside you regarding the Gur, Guru and GurBani. This is the highest stage of Bandgi. It is the Puran Braham Gyan stage; the Param Padvi stage; the Sach Khand stage when nothing can break you from the Gur, Guru and GurBani. This is when you have completely won over Maya. At this stage you:- · become single vision, · are unaffected by worldly Sukh or Dukh, · have no animosity with anybody, · feel no effect from your Ustat or Nindya, · are always absorbed in the Almighty, · are always doing good for others, · are not harming nor hurting anyone, · have won over the Panj Doots, desires and Maya. This state of Chad Di Klaa comes through Naam. The SatGuru’s prayed to God that if it is in God’s will, then Naam Chad Di Klaa be given to everyone in the whole world for their upliftment, “Nanak naam chad di klaa. Teray bhanay sarbatt da bhalla.” When you are in this state of Chad Di Klaa you also help others to reach it too. That is a Sant’s reason for being in this world. Returning to the meaning of this Astpadi, for the Guru all are same, each one of the Sangat is equal and has equal opportunity to be blessed with this GurParsaad, but our spiritual progress depends upon how much we give up at the Charan Sharan of the Guru. Our gains are according to our dedication, surrender, trust, devotion and love for the Guru. Many people complain that they are not able to focus on Naam Simran and that they cannot sit very long for Naam Simran. The basic reason for their inability to focus on Naam Simran is their lack of dedication, lack of complete surrender, lack of trust, lack of devotion and love for the Guru. Bandgi is very simple and easy – just give up everything at the Charan Sharan of the Guru and Guru will take care of the rest. We humbly request at the Charans of those who complain about very little or no spiritual progress despite them living a very religious life for a long time, to dedicate themselves at the Charan Sharan of the Guru in a practical way,. Giving Tunn means dedicating yourself to Seva with your physical body such as long sessions of Naam Simran. Giving Munn means literally following the words of the Guru and giving Dhann means giving one tenth of your earnings at the Charans of the Guru. All of this should be backed with trust, devotion and love for the Guru and if you do so then there is no negative power that is powerful enough to stop you from being blessed with the GurParsaad. Astpadi. jab akaar ih kachh na daristaytaa. paap Punn tab kah tay hotaa. jab Dhari aapan sunn samaaDh. tab bair biroDh kis sang kamaat. jab is ka baran chihan na jaapat. tab harakh sog kaho kiseh bi-aapat. jab aapan aap aap Paar Braham. tab Moh kahaa kis hovat bharam. aapan khayl aap varteejaa. nanak karnaihaar na doojaa. 1. Sunn Klaa is the highest divine power of Dhan Dhan Paar Braham Pita Parmeshwar Ji. It has been described in GurBani that the entire creation is created by the Creator using His Sunn Klaa. Sunn means complete silence, complete peace and Klaa means the divine power. The following GurParsaadi article describes this Salok by Dhan Dhan SatGuru Nanak Patshah Ji, “Sunn Klaa Aprampar Dhari.” This Divine Truth explained in the following article is that Dhan Dhan Paar Braham Pita Parmeshwar Ji was sitting Himself in Sunn Samadhi for a very long period of time before He created Himself and His Naam and then He created the creation. Complete silence and complete peace has therefore, been His Infinite Divine Power. The ones who go into this state of mind, Hirda, soul and body are blessed with the Infinite Divine Power which transforms them completely. Then for them, the Nirgun and Sargun becomes one when everything is taken over by the Infinite Divine Power. The person in this stage sees, feels and experiences the presence of this Infinite Divine Power in every creation and when this happens then there remains nothing else to know or do. The Omnipresent One is seen everywhere, everything is seen happening with this Infinite Divine Power, the logic ends, and Infinite Divine Power takes over. Sunn Klaa – God’s Highest Divine Power Of Complete Silence This article aims to give a glimpse of the Total Truth. Dhan Dhan Shri Paar Braham’s highest and most powerful divine status which is described by the following Shabads:– · Sunn Klaa: God’s highest divine power is that of complete silence. · Sarabh Klaa Bharpoor: God is full of all the super divine powers. · Aprampar: God is the self-created Creator who is Infinite, has no boundaries and has no dimensions. · Sarav Viapak:. God is omnipresent. · Agam Agochar: God cannot be seen or observed through the five senses. The Divine Eye, Dib Drisht, is required to see, hear and feel Him within. The entire creation has originated from the Sunn Klaa, this is God’s highest divine power of complete silence and complete stability. As well as being the highest divine power, Sunn Klaa is also the highest level of spiritual attainment. This is where the soul experiences perfect silence as there are absolutely no thoughts and no distractions in this state of complete stability. Sunn Klaa is the state that Dhan Dhan Shri Paar Braham Parmeshwar has remained in for countless Ages. This is the state in which He lives and this is where He can be realized. Any soul which reaches this level of complete silence achieves and realizes Him, that is also why GurBani says, “Sunn smaadh maha parmarath.” This is where the soul merges with the Almighty. This part of Infinity is Braham Himself. A merged soul is not distracted at all by Maya and completely stable. After complete realization the soul remains in this state permanently. This is where all of the spiritual and eternal powers come into a soul and then there remains no difference between such a soul and Paar Braham Himself. Such a soul becomes a:- · Puran Sant SatGuru, · Puran Braham Gyani, · The GurParsaadi Naam Amrit Ka Daata, · The GurParsaadi Naam Ka Beopari, · a living God on Earth, · “Nanak braham gyani aap parmeshwar,” · “Braham gyani mukt jugat jeea kaa data,” · “Braham gyani puran purakh vidhataa,” · “Banak sadh prabh bhed naa bhaaee,” · “Ram sant dohen ek hain.” Maaroo Mehulaa 1 Sunn klaa apranpaar dhhaaree. SGGS 1037-1038 In the Salok we are now discussing, God has been very kind upon us by giving us the Braham Gyan about this highest level of Eternity, spirituality and divinity known as Sunn Klaa. “Maaroo Mehulaa 1” means that Dhan Dhan Shri Paar Braham Parmeshwar has given us this Braham Gyan through Dhan Dhan Shri Guru Nanak Patshah Ji who Himself had achieved that level of Eternity. Let us try to understand it and bring these priceless jewels and diamonds inside us and by doing so learn the purpose of our human life and achieve salvation – Jivan Mukti. This power of complete silence, Sunn Klaa, is the highest eternal power of Eternity – Dhan Dhan Shri Paar Braham Parmeshwar. There is nothing above this Divine power where there is a complete silence and no distractions, complete stability. This is where Almighty resides and lives. This is where he remotely controls and executes His Hukam. Such a state of spirituality and eternal power is known as Sunn Klaa. This is where there is nothing less than complete silence. Such a state is also defined as Param Jyot Puran Parkash. This is also sometimes referenced as Braham Khand – the inner most part of Sach Khand where the Creator and only Doer resides. When a soul reaches the level of Bhagti where there is complete silence, complete freedom from thoughts and no distractions, then that soul has won over everything. That soul has won over the mind and Maya – Panj Doots and all desires. Such a soul becomes one with the Almighty. Then there remains no difference between Akal Purakh and such a soul. It becomes a Puran Sant SatGuru, a Puran Braham Gyani by virtue of this highest level of Eternal Power. Sunn klaa apranpaar dhhaaree. Aap niraalum apur apaaree.

The self-created Creator who is Infinite, has no boundaries, has no dimensions, has been in existence even from the beginning of this universe, because He is the only Creator and the only Doer. All of His eternal and Divine powers are His own creations. The Creator creates the entire nature from Sunn Klaa – from the Eternal Power of complete silence, and then watches it with eternal happiness. This means that the entire nature – the entire universe, has originated and been created by the Creator from this eternal power of Sunn Klaa. Poun paanee sunnai thae saajae. Srisatt oupaae kaaeiaa gurr raajae. Agan paanee jeeo joth thumaaree sunnae kulaa rehaaeidhaa 2. Look at the wonders of the Sunn Klaa – the most wonderful life giving eternal entities air and water have also been born from the Sunn Klaa, “Pawan guru pani pita mata dharat mahatt.” Look at the importance of these two natural elements air and water, how divinely they have been gifted to us by the Almighty. These two elements are free and equally available to each and every soul, each and every creation of the nature. There would be no life without these two elements. With every breath the Pawan Guru goes inside us, and water is the father – Pani Pita. It is as pious and pure as the Almighty Himself. Look at the Earth, it is another life giving entity, without which we could not survive. This is the Dhan Dhan Divine wisdom of GurBani. Let us bring these Gyan Ke Moti (pearls of wisdom) inside us and make a Mala of these priceless diamonds and jewels in side us. This is the real Mala of Naam, of Braham, of the divine qualities of Braham. That is the real Mala and we should all earn this Mala. After the creation of these life giving divine gifts, the Creator created all the living beings like us and other species . The body of each creation is the fort for a soul. So He created a fort, a place for the soul to live. The creation of the human body is a place for our soul to live now and was created from five elements – air, water, fire, earth and sky (space/ether). The soul which is the Jyot of Braham, the infinite part of the Braham, the Nirlep undistracted part of the Braham, which is not effected by Maya, was instituted in this fort of the body. Sunnuhu brehumaa bisun mehaes oupaaeae. Sunnae vuruthae jug subaaeae. Eis pudh veechaarae so jun pooraa this mileeai bhurum chukaaeidhaa 3. Brahma, Mahesh (Shiva) and Vishnu are the Devtas which are worshipped instead of the Creator by some communities. But, even they were created by the Creator from the Sunn Klaa. Such is the Eternal Power of the Sunn Klaa that Dhan Dhan Shri Par Braham Parmeshwar has remained there for a countless number of Ages. Each Age is called a Yug, such as Sat Yug, Treta Yug, Dwapper Yug and now Kal Yug. Each Yug lasts countless years. The soul which earns this most powerful eternal blessing of Sunn Klaa, becomes complete in Himself. This means that soul gets Himself absorbed in the Almighty, becomes a Roop of Braham, the infinite part of the Braham. Anybody who comes in contact with such a highly eternally and spiritually blessed soul will become like Him too. Such a soul is also described as an Apras Aparas in GurBani. When we come into contact with such a soul we are eternally blessed by them and eventually become like them. In the company of such an Apras Aparas all the doubts in our mind vanish. Sunnuhu suputh surovur thhaapae. Jin saajae veechaarae aapae. Thith suth sar munooaa gurumukh naavai fir baahurr jon n paaeidhaa 4. The construction of the Sat Sarovars – the seven seas meaning the seven energy centres (chakras) in the Suksham Dehi (soul body) were also created by the Creator from the Sunn Klaa. The activation of these Amrit Sarovars can only be achieved through Sunn Samadhi. Let us talk a little bit more about these Sat Sarovars – seven seas of Amrit, which are created by the Creator inside our human body. These are the centers of divine powers and the source of Amrit inside our human body, they are present in:- 1. Trikuti – center of the forehead, which is also called the Gyan Netter, 2. the throat centre, 3. the Hirda Kamal, heart centre 4. the Nabhi Kamal, navel centre, 5. the sex organ centre, 6. the lower portion of spine which contains the Kundalini Shakti, and 7. the top of the head – Dassam Duaar. These are all activated by the divine and eternal blessings when the GurParsaadi Naam – Sat Naam goes into them. And when the cycle is completed starting from focusing the Surat in the Trikuti area, then the Naam travels down to the throat centre, the Hirda Kamal, then Nabhi Kamal, then to the sex organ centre and Kundalini and up through the spinal cord channels called Ida, Pingla and Sushmana and hits the Dassam Duaar and back into the Trikuti. When these Amrit Sarovars are enlightened, a continuous flow of Amrit starts in the entire body. This creates the real Naam Ki Mala and Ajapa Jaap all through this cycle. The activation of this Naam Ki Mala is a GurParsaadi game and happens only when we do GurParsaadi Naam Simran sitting in Sunn Samadhi. It happens by itself, not by our own efforts, but by the eternal blessings of Dhan Dhan Paar Braham Parmeshwar and the GurKirpa of such a soul who has realized this Sunn Klaa, a Puran Sant SatGuru, a Puran Braham Gyani. The soul who is able to activate these seven seas of Amrit becomes Jivan Mukt and such a soul is a Gurmukh soul. A Gurmukh soul means the soul who has completely surrendered Himself to the Guru and has taken His wisdom – GurMat, and left the DurMat and Sansarik Mat behind. Sunnuhu chundh sooruj gainaarae. This kee joth thribhuvun saarae. Sunnae alukh apaar niraalum sunnae thaarree laaeidhaa 5. The creation of the sun, moon and sky was also done by the Creator from the Sunn Klaa. There is His Jyot in all these entities too. The invincible and Infinite Braham remains self supported and doesn’t need any assistance in any form or in any way, is totally independent and unique and remains absorbed in Himself only. Sunnuhu dhhurath akaas oupaaeae. Bin thhunmaa raakhae such kul paaeae. Thribhuvun saaj maekhulee maaeiaa aap oupaae khupaaeidhaa 6. The Earth and sky are also created from His Infinite super powers of Sunn Klaa. All of these entities sun, moon, earth and sky remain in their respective positions without any support from any source, except Himself. The entire creation has been tied into the rope of Maya. This means that all of these material creations are run by Maya. The Sargun Saroop of Dhan Dhan Shri Paar Braham Parmeshwar remains under the jurisdiction of Maya. He is also the Creator of His Sargun Saroop and He is the destroyer of His Sargun Saroop. This means everything living in the Creation is perishable, only His Infinite portion is indestructible. That part is the Truth, the complete Truth and that is His own Nirgun Saroop. Sunnuhu khaanee sunnuhu baanee. Sunnuhu oupujee sunn sumaanee. Outhubhuj chuluth keeaa sir kuruthai bisumaadh subadh dhaekhaaeidhaa 7. All four sources of life Andaj, Jeyraj, Seytaj, Utpujh and their communication channels – e.g. their languages are also created by the Creator sitting in Sunn Klaa. The entire universe takes birth from Himself, the Origin and after destruction or perishing, or dying goes back to Him. The wonderful creation of the entire vegetation is also one of His wonderful actions. All these creations are born from the Sunn and when they are destroyed they go back to Sunn. All His creations are under His Hukam. Sunnuhu raath dhinus dhue keeeae. Oupath khupath sukhaa dhukh dheeeae. Sukh dhukh hee thae amur atheethaa gurumukh nij ghur paaeidhaa 8. The wonderful creation of day and night is also done by Him. He is the one who gives birth and death to the life. He is the one who gives the worldly happiness and sorrows in life – meaning that birth and death is also under His Hukam and our sorrows and happiness are also part of His creation. The cycle of life and death is also His creation. Basically, this is a part of His Sargun Saroop, which operates under Maya. Only a Gurmukh can overpower Maya and find His original home – which is the infinite part, Param Jyot Puran Parkash of the Almighty. Saam ved rig jajur athhurubun. Brahma mukh maya hai thre gun. Thaa kee keemath kehi n sukai ko thio bolae jio bolaaeidhaa.9. The four Vedas that were written by Brahma are the Rig Ved, Jajur Ved, Saam Ved and Arth Ved. These were written by Brahma under Hukam from Akal Purakh. This means that all this divine knowledge presented in the Vedas by Brahma came from the Almighty only. The three aspects of Maya were also produced by Akal Purakh. This means that Maya is also the creation of Dhan Dhan Akal Purakh Ji. Maya completely runs a normal person’s life. Only the Puran Sants are not under Maya, they always remain one with Akal Purakh and Maya serves them instead of directing them. Maya remains under the feet of such Puran Sants, Puran Braham Gyanis. There are three Gun (aspects) of Maya:- 1. Tamo Gun: Kaam, Krodh, Lobh, Moh, Ahankaar; duality; hatred. 2. Rajo Gun: Asa, Trishna and Mansha – desires. 3. Sato Gun: Daya – kindness; Santokh – contentment; Dharam – religion; Jat – control over lust; Sat – the Truth. The soul which concentrates and operates under the Sato Gun of Maya is eventually eternally blessed and gets involved in the GurParsaadi game, then does Puran Bhagti and breaks through all of the barriers of Maya, wins over Maya and goes back to the infinite part of Braham, becomes one with Braham. There is no price for Infinity. It cannot be bought, it can only be attained through pure, pious and unconditional love, sacrifice and service to Him. Then such a soul understands His Puran Hukam and speaks the complete Truth, sees the Truth, hears the Truth and serves the Truth. Sunnuhu suputh paathaal oupaaeae. Sunnuhu bhuvun rukhae liv laaeae. Aapae kaarun keeaa apurunpar subh thaero keeaa kumaaeidhaa.10. He is the Creator of all the Khand Brahmands (realms and worlds) are all His creation. All these things are then looked after by Him. He is the Origin and there is nothing beyond Him. He is Supreme and takes care of everything by Himself. Ruj thum suth kul thaeree shhaaeiaa. Junum murun houmai dhukh paaeiaa. Jis no kirupaa kurae har gurumukh gun chouthhai mukath kuraaeidhaa.11. The souls which are absorbed in Him remain in the infinite part of Him and the other creations remain under His control through Maya and its three aspects. Every thing is under His Hukam. The most serious mental sickness is the Haumai, which also is a part of the Maya’s Tamo Gun and is also created by Him. The entire cycle of life and death is due to Haumai, which is the deepest sickness. The person who is blessed eternally by Akal Purakh gets involved in the GurParsaadi game. He has completely surrendered Himself to a Puran Sant SatGuru, a Puran Braham Gyani who has broken all the barriers Himself. The Puran Sant SatGuru has won over the three properties of Maya completely. Such a Sant SatGuru takes your soul into the fourth stage – Karam Khand and eventually gets your soul relieved of Maya and gives you salvation – Jivan Mukti. Sunnuhu oupujae dhus avuthaaraa. Srisatt oupaae keeaa paasaaraa. Dhaev dhaanuv gun gundhhurub saajae sabh likhiaa kurum kumaaeidhaa.12. The ten Avtaars have also been born from the Almighty. There are ten such Bhagats, who are the Avatars of Dhan Dhan Paar Braham Parmeshwar in various Ages. He is also the Creator of Shiva, Devi-Devtas, but these entities were born to work and bring the rest of the souls closer to the Almighty. However all of these entities called themselves gods and started to get themselves worshipped and ignored the worship of Akal. All of these Devi-Devtas were and still are under Maya. None of them could break the barriers of Maya. These so called gods are responsible for their own condition due to their own deeds. There is only one way to win over the Maya and break out of the infinite loop of Maya and go back to the infinite part of Braham and that is the complete surrender to the Gur and Guru, to become a Gurmukh, to earn the Guru’s words and serve the Guru and to remain forever at the Charans of the Guru. Gurumukh sumujhai rog n hoee. Eih gur kee pourree jaanai jun koee. Jugeh jugunthar mukath puraaein so mukath bhaeiaa path paaeidhaa.13. The person who recognizes this infinite power of Infinity – the Sunn Klaa, cannot be effected by any of these mental sicknesses of Maya. However, rare are the souls who can understand this unlimited power of the Sunn Klaa. Throughout all Ages this path of following the Guru has been the way to achieve salvation. This path is the ladder of the GurParsaadi Naam Simran in Sunn Samadhi. Only this can bring the soul closer to Almighty. The soul first goes into Samadhi in Karam Khand and then into Sunn Samadhi. This is where the Almighty can be realized. The door to Sach Khand can be opened in Sunn Samadhi and the soul can enter Sach Khand. This is the highest level of Eternal Blessings – GurParsaad. This can only happen in the Gur Sangat of a Puran Sant SatGuru, a Puran Braham Gyani. Very rare are those souls who can understand this divine wisdom and follow it, but such souls who do are relieved of all the sicknesses of Maya and obtain respect in the Dargah of Dhan Dhan Paar Braham Parmeshwar. Punch thuth sunnuhu purugaasaa. Dhaeh sunjogee kurum abhiaasaa. Buraa bhulaa dhue musuthak leekhae paap punn beejaaeidhaa.14. The human body is made of the five elements as discussed earlier and this is all the creation of the Creator only. Our deeds, actions and reactions are recorded. If we sow bad, we reap bad. If we sow good, we reap good. This means that all of our sorrows are due to our bad deeds and all our happiness is due to our good deeds, so we should sow only good deeds. Why do you sow bad deeds when you know that you will have to reap your bad deeds yourself? This is why everyone’s fate is different, because everyone’s deeds are different. The souls who sow more good deeds and accumulate their good deeds to such a level where they are recognized by Braham Himself, are eternally blessed by Him. Oothum sathigur purukh niraalae. Subadh ruthae har ras muthuvaalae. Ridhh budhh sidhh giaan guroo thae paaeeai poorai bhaag milaaeidhaa.15. A Sant SatGuru is Puran which means that He has completely merged into the Almighty. He has won over Maya and has penetrated and absorbed Himself into the infinite part of the Almighty. Such souls remain absorbed in the GurParsaadi Naam Amrit of Dhan Dhan Paar Braham Parmeshwar. Only those souls who have the pre-ordained destiny – Bhaag, meet the Sangat and gain the eternal blessings of a Puran Sant SatGuru. They win over Maya and go back and merge into His Nirgun Saroop. The spiritual powers and divine wisdom comes only to such souls which remain absorbed in the Almighty. Eis mun maaeiaa ko naehu ghunaeraa. Koee boojhuhu giaanee kuruhu nibaeraa. Aasaa munusaa houmai sehusaa nur lobhee koorr kumaaeidhaa.16. Akal Purakh is addressing us all and urging us to understand this game of Maya, its three properties and its adverse affects on our daily life, the most sickening being the cycle of life and death, “Janam maran da rog.” However, this game of Maya can only be understood if we replace our own wisdom with the Guru’s wisdom. There is no other way because the Guru has achieved Infinity so only He can tell us how we can do it. If you don’t follow the GurMat then you will remain under the control of Maya and remain in suffering. The person who understands and obtains all of the divine qualities of the Almighty, gets absorbed in Him. This means you will have to bring inside you all of the divine qualities of Braham to be like Him. Only then will He absorb you into Himself. Sathigur thae paaeae veechaaraa. Sunn sumaadhh suchae ghur baaraa. Naanuk nirumul naadh subudh dhhun such raamai naam sumaaeidhaa.175.17. In summary, we cannot achieve salvation without Samadhi and Sunn Samadhi, which is a GurParsaadi game and comes to us only in Karam Khand and Sach Khand. We should all therefore try to understand its importance as discussed in the above divine wisdom and pray for getting the eternal blessings of the GurParsaadi Naam. Samadhi and Sunn Samadhi come to us only when we are involved in a GurParsaadi Gur Sangat of a Puran Sant SatGuru. This is because He is Amrit Kaa Daata, Naam Amrit Kaa Daata. Having His Sangat will bring us close to the Almighty and enable us to break the barriers of Maya, to win over Maya and to achieve Jivan Mukti. There is no other way to do it. You should all therefore watch your daily deeds, do Naam Simran, completely surrender yourself to the Charans of the Guru, then you will one day be blessed with the GurParsaad. Coming back to this Astpadi, there are many people who try to find logic behind everything, but fortunately or unfortunately there is no logic behind Divinity. As long as there is logic that is visible to the mankind it is called science, but as soon as the logic ends then the Infinite Divine Power takes over. Science is only very a small part of the entire game of Akal Purakh Ji. Therefore, those who go for logic remain trapped in logic, but the ones who become firm believers in this Infinite Divine Power are blessed with advancement in their spirituality. When this Infinite Divine Power takes over us, we are blessed with this divine sense that every creation exists and operates due to this Infinite Divine Power. We realise that the entire creation is all in One. Our individuality is eliminated, duality vanishes and everywhere and in everything God’s Infinite Divine Power is seen to be prevailing. Therefore, when there is no duality there remains no difference between Paap (sins) and Punn (virtues). This means that after reaching this level of spirituality all our Karams become Punn Karams. Paap is eliminated and Punn takes over completely. When there are both Paap and Punn, then that is living in duality. But, when Paap is eliminated then there is only Punn and that makes us Ik Drisht. This means that whatever the person at the level of spirituality does is for the benefit of the Sangat. Absolutely everything He does is for the benefit for others, even though under logical thinking we may not think so. The end of duality within us comes under the blessing of the Puran Braham Gyan and for a Puran Braham Gyani there is no difference between one person or another. He is Ik Drisht. For Him, the entire Sangat is the same. He is Nirvair as He has no animosity with anyone. His love for every creation is the same as His love for God because He sees the Infinite Divine Power in every creation. For Him God is prevailing in every creation, so what is good and what is bad? God is in every creation so it cannot be good or bad, it is the same everywhere and in every creation. For such a blessed soul, the Infinite Divine Power takes over everything else. The shape, size, color or creed, nationality, religion, caste and so on of a person has no meaning. God is God whether it is in a dog or in a person. God’s Infinite Divine Power is same whether it is in a tree or in an animal or in a person. When we search and go to the origin of everything then there comes a point where logic ends and Divinity takes over. Let us take an example of electricity. On the face of it electricity looks like an invention of the human brain. Look at all of theories behind it and texts about how it is generated and how it works. Science goes as far as saying that electricity is due to the electrons and protons. But, then we ask, “what is the force or power that creates the electrons and protons in the first place?” Then logic ends right there. Then we realize that the electrons and protons were already there. The power or energy was already there. The human brain has just discovered it. The human brain has just realized what was already there. This is why one of the famous laws of physics says that energy can neither be created nor destroyed. All of the energies and powers that we use in our daily life, whether it is gasoline that runs the car or the gas that cooks our food, were already here, created by the Creator. The human brain has just discovered them and brought them to use. An ordinary human brain is not capable of creating any completely new building block, but it has been blessed with the power to discover the creation and that is what it does. At the same time, when it tries to reach the origin of anything then its logic ultimately fails and that is where Divinity takes over. INFINITE DIVINE POWER TAKES OVER WHERE LOGIC ENDS. Looking for logic is Haumai, going beyond logic is Divinity. The entire creation is a play created by God, but at the same time the basis of this play is the Truth – Sat. The entire play is based on His Infinite Divine Power of silence and peace, Sunn Klaa. The one who goes into complete peace and silence becomes Sat and is the winner in His game. The one who is lost in the falsehood of Maya is the loser and continues to lose as long He stays under the influence of Maya. The winner is beyond Maya so is beyond the pains and sorrows inflicted by attachment. As long as there is attachment, Moh, there are sorrows and pains. The basic reason behind family relationships is Moh. Moh is nothing but the fear of losing worldly possessions, properties and relationships. This fear is due to attachment which is the root cause of all of the worldly pains and sorrows. When there is no attachment, there is no fear of losing and we become fearless. Only then there is no pain and sorrow left. Attachment is due to the illusion of false belongingness. The Truth is that everything we have been collecting or trying to save is all perishable and is all false. When the GurParsaad of the Infinite Divine Power takes over then all of these illusions are washed away and the divine wisdom – Puran Braham Gyan appears, which is again Infinite Divine Power. When all illusions and Dubidha end then the Infinite Divine Power takes over and this is the only thing that prevails, and what prevails is called Sat. Therefore, the entire creation is a play of Akal Purakh, only His Infinite Divine Powers prevail and there is no other power than His power. Jab hovat prabh kayval dhanee. Tab bandh mukat kaho kis ka-o ganee. Jab aykeh har agam apaar. Tab narak surag kaho ka-un a-utaar. Jab nirgun prabh sehaj subhaa-ay. Tab siv sakat kahhu kit thaa-ay. Jab aapeh aap apnee jot dharai. Tab kavan nidar kavan kat darai. Aapan chalit aap karnaihaar. Nanak thaakur agam apaar. 2. Dhan Dhan SatGur Sachey Patshah Ji is continuing to give us the Puran Braham Gyan about the spiritual status of a person who gets blessed with Sunn Samadhi and whose Nirgun and Sargun becomes one. Nirgun means beyond the three aspects of Maya. God is Nirgun and Formless. However as Sargun, He is Infinite Divine Power that is the Creator and Operator of the entire and every creation. The Infinite Being is Formless, but at the same time is also the Creator and Operator of all forms. Almost the entire human population operates under the three aspects of Maya. Only the ones who go beyond the three aspects of Maya are blessed with the GurParsaad of Nirgun and Sargun becoming one within them resulting in the Infinite Divine Power taking over them completely. At this stage there remain no shackles of Maya around them. There are no Bandhans (ties) with anything of Maya. There remains no attachment of any kind with anything. This means there is freedom. This freedom is called salvation. This freedom is available to every soul in this universe, but most people still choose to live the life of a slave of Maya. There is no treasure bigger or better than the Infinite Divine Power that is available to us in the form of this freedom, but most people chose to collect the scum of Maya. Does it make sense to stay drenched in the scum of Maya and ignore the infinite divine treasures? This Infinite Divine Power cannot be seen with the normal five senses of a human being. How can we see something which is infinite with limited means? Therefore, for seeing, experiencing and feeling this Infinite Divine Power we have to be blessed with the divine power and this divine power is available to those who go into Sunn Samadhi and whose Nirgun and Sargun becomes one. Then there is a complete merger with Akal Purakh and we become an inseparable part of the Mansarovar – Gur Sagar, Omnipresent, then heaven or hell doesn’t mean anything. This is a Divine Truth that the Dargah (Realm of Truth, God’s Court) is above heaven (realm of the Devi-Devtas, gods and goddesses). So, when we earn a place in Dargah then what else is lacking? Dargah is above everything else. All of the Devi-Devtas are all below Dargah. Even Lord Shiva is below the Dargah of Akal Purakh. This is a Divine Truth that this divine power of reaching the Dargah is available only and only to the human beings. This divine power is not available to any Devi-Devtas. That is why all of them long for birth in human life. Only then can they reach Dargah. Therefore, those who are blessed with Sunn Samadhi and for whom Sargun and Nirgun becomes one are above the Devi-Devtas. We have been born in this human life with the divine Jyot inside us and this divine Jyot is the Infinite Divine Power. Our body is being run by this Jyot and this Jyot has been placed by God Himself inside our Hirda. When we are born we are free, then, why would we chose to live as a slave of Maya? It is a Divine Truth that when a child is born, all his Bajjar Kapaats are open. All of his Sat Sarovars are enlightened and Dassam Duaar is open. The body of a new born is filled with Amrit. But, as the child grows, he tastes Maya and starts to like Maya due to the influence of Maya on the family and slowly becomes a slave of Maya himself. If this new born child can be kept away from the influence of Maya then as he grows he will become a Puran Braham Gyani for sure. However, it is practically very difficult to keep a child away from the influence of Maya, but at least parents can themselves focus on Sat Ki Karni so that the child will also engage in Sat Ki Karni and Maya will have minimal effect. As he grows it will be easier for Him to focus on Naam, Naam Simran and Naam Ki Kamai. By playing Kirtan close to a new born and as they grow up focusing them on Naam Simran, Naam Ki Kamai and Bandgi will help them to stay close to God. Those who are blessed with the GurParsaad of Sunn Samadhi, whose Nirgun and Sargun becomes one, are blessed with Sehaj Subhaa. This means that they are also blessed with Sehaj Samadhi. Sehaj Samadhi is a continuous Samadhi, never ending, forever. However, this is all His game, it is a GurParsaadi play. This GurParsaad is available to us as a new born child. If saved and focused on we can make our spiritual dreams come true. This GurParsaad is available to us on a continuous basis, all we have to do is to go to the source of this GurParsaad and give up everything to Him with complete surrender and with trust, devotion and love. With this eternal blessing our Nirgun and Sargun will become one and we will go into Sunn Samadhi and then the Infinite Divine Power will take over everything and we will forever become one with this Infinite Divine Power. When that happens then everything else will be meaningless for us as there is nothing bigger and better than this Infinite Divine Power. There is no place better than the Dargah. Abhinaasee sukh aapan aasan. Tah janam maran kaho kahaa binaasan. Jab puran kartaa prabh so-ay. Tab jam kee taraas kahhu kis ho-ay. Jab abigat agochar prabh aykaa. Tab chitar gupat kis poochhat laykhaa. Jab naath niranjan agochar agaadhay. Tab ka-un chhutay ka-un bandhan baadhay. Aapan aap aap hee acharjaa. Nanak aapan roop aap hee uparjaa. 3. Dhan Dhan SatGur Sachey Pancham Patshah Ji is very kindly continuing to give us the divine wisdom about the Mahima of the GurParsaad of Nirgun, Sargun and Sunn Samadhi in these divine words. This divine GurParsaad’s Mahima is beyond description, but here is a glimpse of some of the divine treasures that this GurParsaad brings us:- · immortality, · Sehaj Samadhi, · Sada Sukh – never ending eternal happiness, · merger in the Abhinaasee meaning nothing will be able to destroy us, · freedom from the cycle of death and birth, · the state of Puran Purakh, · out of drinking the poison of Maya and instead filling with Amrit, · the Puran Braham Gyan, the blessing of divine wisdom allowing us to understand the divine qualities of the Almighty, · realization that it is His Infinite Divine Power that makes everything happen around us and everywhere, · the divine sense by opening our divine eye. God is beyond the normal five senses of human being, but with the divine eye we are able to see, feel and experience Him, · clearance from the effect of all of our Karni not only from this life, but from all previous lives, · salvation. When the Infinite Divine Power takes over everything for us then we realize that there is only one Naath. This means that God is the owner of everything. He is the Master of everything. He is Niranjan meaning that He is beyond the darkness of Maya. He is beyond the three aspects of Maya. He is Agochar meaning that He is incomprehensible with the normal five senses and only the divine sense can recognize and realize Him. He is Agaadh meaning He is the Infinite Divine Power that is Omnipresent and only He could create Himself. Only He could create the entire creation. Only He could run this entire creation. Being Infinite He has no form. How can the Infinite be defined in measurable terms? So that makes Him Formless. Nirankaar means formless. Being Infinite means He is Formless. Oankaar means formless and only He Himself could make Himself formless or infinite. The Infinite One has no ties, no boundaries, and no attachment. Therefore, when this Infinite Divine Power is realized and when this Infinite Divine Power takes completely over us then what else remains to be achieved? Nothing. All that remains is this Infinite Divine Power and this Infinite Divine Power is the One which prevails forever for all times. Jah nirmal purakh purakh pat hotaa. Tah bin mail kahhu ki-aa dhotaa. Jah niranjan nirankaar nirbaan. Tah ka-un ka-o maan ka-un abhimaan. Jah saroop kayval jagdees. Tah chhal chhidar lagat kaho kees. Jah jot saroopee jot sang samaavai. Tah kiseh bhookh kavan tariptaavai. Karan karaavan karnaihaar. Nanak kartay ka naahi sumaar. 4. When our Nirgun and Sargun becomes one and our mind, Hirda, soul and body goes into complete silence, then there is only one Infinite Divine Power that remains and prevails. That Infinite Divine Power has been called Nirmal Purakh, the Master of all beings; the Immaculate Being; the One which was, which is and which will remain so and which is the Eternal Truth. Everything else is perishable. When this Infinite Divine Power is realized then:- · our mind, Hirda, soul and body is completely cleansed. · All of our sins from this life and all previous lives are washed away instantaneously. · The effect of all of our good or bad deeds from this life and all previous lives is washed away. · We are completely cleansed from inside out. The inside and outside become the same. · Our Hirda is filled with divine Param Jyot Puran Parkash. · Our Hirda is filled with all of the infinite divine qualities. · Our mind is replaced by Param Jyot. · Our soul becomes completely weightless. It was carrying the weight of all of our deeds from this life and all previous lives we have been through. · Our Suksham Dehi becomes Kanchan Dehi. · Merger happens with Niranjan – the One who is beyond three aspects of Maya. · Merger happens with Nirankaar – the One who is formless being infinite and Omnipresent. · Merger happens with Nirbaan – the One who is beyond death and birth, is always Mukt, the one who rules over Maya, the one who rules over everything, the king of kings; · We eliminate from inside us the Maan (honour) Abhimaan (dishonour) – the ego, Ahankaar, Haumai and our individuality will be killed and the Infinite Divine Power will prevail over everything. There is only one Jagdees, meaning the One who is the · Creator, · Doer, · Giver of life, · Prevailer in the form of divine power in every creation, · infinite Divine Light that keeps the entire universe running. When this Infinite Divine Power is inside us and is keeping us operating, when this Infinite Divine Power is present everywhere, then who are you deceiving or cheating or being fraudulent with? When you cheat, deceive or do any kind of fraud you are doing it to this Infinite Divine Power. You are not doing it to anybody else, but to God Himself. So please think for a second, are you so crazy that you will try to cheat, deceive or do fraud with God? By cheating, deceiving or doing fraud you are only hurting yourself. But, when our Nirgun and Sargun becomes one and the Infinite Divine Power takes over, then we are saved from cheating, deceiving, or being fraudulent to anybody anywhere. This Infinite Divine Power is the Jyot inside us which gives life to our body, which runs our heart, which runs our breathing process, which is running the blood inside our body. When Nirgun and Sargun becomes one for us then this Jyot inside us becomes one with the Param Jyot and loses its false identity and becomes Param Jyot. When this happens then there remains nothing else to be achieved. The thirst for the Eternal Truth is quenched. Even the hunger for the Darshans of Akal Purakh disappear. Contentment takes over. All desires are fulfilled. Everything becomes complete by merging in the Infinite Divine Power. Everything happens and every creation operates in accordance with the divine laws framed by this Infinite Divine Power of Dhan Dhan Paar Braham Pita Parmeshwar Ji. He is this Infinite Divine Power and this Infinite Divine Power prevails everywhere and in every creation. The entire creation runs under His command – Hukam and nobody can judge or measure His Infinite Divine Power. This is called complete realization and is available only to those who are blessed with the GurParsaad of this Infinite Divine Power. Jab apnee sobhaa aapan sang banaa-ee. Tab kavan maa-ay baap mitar sut bhaa-ee. Jah sarabh klaa aapeh parbeen. Tah bayd katayb kahaa ko-oo cheen. Jab aapan aap aap ur dhaarai. Ta-o sagan apasgan kahaa beechaarai. Jah aapan ooch aapan aap nayraa. Tah ka-un thaakur ka-un kahee-ai chayraa. Bisman bisam rahay bismaad. Nanak apnee Gat jaanhu aap. 5. This Infinite Divine Power is the divine grace and divine glory that comes with the GurParsaad of Nirgun and Sargun becoming one forever. The GurParsaad of divine glory is blessed when the Infinite Divine Power takes over everything else and there remain no other relationships except this divine relationship with God. When this divine relationship with Divine Truth comes into existence, then all of the worldly and family relationships become false. Then we are blessed with this divine wisdom which makes us realize that all of the family relationships are false. The real and truthful relationship is this divine relationship with the Divine Truth. This divine relationship is the relationship of Naam – Sat Naam. All of the glory and grace that we are blessed with is due to this Infinite Divine Power of God due to our merger in Him. All of the divine powers are hidden in this Divine Truth, the Infinite Divine Power. All of the Ridhis and Sidhis live at the Charans of this Infinite Divine Power, because this Infinite Divine Power is the Creator of the Ridhis and Sidhis as well. This infinite divine relationship is not achieved by reading any books or Vedas. Neither can this divine relationship be achieved just by reading or hearing GurBani. The only way that this divine relationship can be achieved is by doing what GurBani is telling us to do. Doing GurBani is the key to success and not merely reading or hearing GurBani. Therefore, please focus efforts in doing GurBani and not merely reading on a daily basis. When we start doing GurBani then we practically realize what GurBani says and our spiritual progress goes on to the fast track. When this Infinite Divine Power is everything and our Hirda gets filled with this divine Amrit, then there remain no good or bad omens. Every moment belongs to this Infinite Divine Power then there remain no illusions or delusions of any good or bad omens. Good or bad omens are just illusions and delusions, Bharams, that put us into Dubidha and nothing else. End of Bharams – illusions and delusions is Bandgi and brings merger with the Gur and Guru. Living a life full of illusions is the one of the main reasons for no spiritual progress. The illusions are raised in our mind while living under self wisdom and worldly wisdom, but when the Infinite Divine Power takes over us, we are blessed with divine wisdom and this divine wisdom washes away all of the illusions. Merger in this Infinite Divine Power makes us one with God, so there remains no Guru and no disciple, since Guru and the disciple are the same Infinite Divine Power then the Guru and disciple become one. This is why GurBani has called a Puran Braham Gyani, “Braham gyani aap nirankaraa,” “Braham gyani aap parmeshwar,” “Braham gyani mukt jugat jea ka daata,” and “Braham gyani puran purakh vidhataa.” GurBani also calls SatGuru a Bohithaa which means SatGur is a Ship which ferries us across this Bhavsagar to the Dargah. When we are ferried across and are given a place in the Dargah then there remains no difference between the Guru and us. There remains no difference between the Thakur – God and us. Looking at this GurParsaadi divine quality of God which renders all His divine powers upon us when we become one with Him, it leaves us feeling wonder struck. This wonderful divine quality of Paar Braham Param Pita Parmeshwar Ji leaves us feeling wonderstruck. This is the height of His kindness that He makes us like Him and gives us all of His divine powers. Therefore, only God knows what He does and how He does it. With His Infinite Divine Powers His capabilities cannot be and should not be challenged as He can do anything beyond the imagination of an ordinary person. Only He knows His own divine powers and nobody else can know all of His capabilities and divine powers. That is why His Mahima is beyond description, nobody has been able to know Him completely and describe Him completely and nobody will ever be able to do so. That is why He is called Agam, Agochar, Agaadh, Aprampar, Anant, Beant and by many such names. We can only make our life worthwhile by focusing on achieving this GurParsaad. Jah achhal achhayd abhayd samaa-i-aa. Ohaa kiseh bi-aapat maa-i-aa. Aapas ka-o aapeh aadays. Tihu gun ka naahee parvays. Jah aykeh ayk ayk bhagvantaa. Tah ka-un achint kis laagai chintaa. Jah aapan aap aap patee-aaraa. Tah ka-un kathai ka-un sunnaihaaraa. Baho bay-ant ooch tay oochaa. Nanak aapas ka-o aapeh pahoochaa. 6. SatGur Sachey Pancham Patshah Ji is very kindly continuing to tell us what happens to those souls who are blessed with the GurParsaad of this Infinite Divine Power when their Nirgun and Sargun becomes one and they are blessed with Sunn Samadhi and all of the infinite divine treasures as a part of this GurParsaad. Everything is changing on a continuous basis. Every creation is changing at every moment. If we look at our self we will notice that we are constantly changing. With every moment that passes our life is changing, our body is changing, even our skin is changing on a continuous basis. This is called the aging process. Everything else around us is changing and moving towards its physical end. Anything that is born or created in time and space has to meet its end one day. There is only one thing that is beyond this process of change. There is only one thing that has no effect of time and space. This Infinite Divine Power is beyond Maya and this One thing is Divinity – the Infinite Divine Power – Dhan Dhan Paar Braham Pita Parmeshwar Ji. That is why this Infinite Divine Power is called, “Achal, Achhayd, Abhayd.” This Infinite Divine Power has created Himself. This Infinite Divine Power has created the entire creation. This Infinite Divine Power has created all of the divine laws. This Infinite Divine Power is unique and is the One that kept Himself beyond the process of change. That is why it is called Sat. That is why His Name is Sat Naam. This never changing status of this Infinite Divine Power has been explained as “Achal, Achhayd, Abhayd,” by SatGur Pancham Patshah Ji. Those souls which are absorbed in this Infinite Divine Power also become “Achal, Achhayd, Abhayd,” like Him and go beyond Maya. This is also called Atal Awastha in Puran Bandgi process when we go beyond Maya by defeating Maya as a part of our Puran Bandgi process. We cannot be disturbed by Maya any more. We are unshaken by anything or any circumstances. We cannot be deceived by Maya any more. Winning over Maya is winning over the Panj Doots and desires. Maya then becomes our servant. Panj Doots then leave our body and live under our Charans. No more drinking this poison and this poison is replaced by the GurParsaad of Amrit. Our Hirda goes into full and complete contentment and all of our desires are fulfilled. This means no more desires, no more burning in the fire of desires. Going beyond Maya means going beyond three aspects of Maya and merging with this Infinite Divine Power – Dhan Dhan Paar Braham Pita Parmeshwar Ji. When Bandgi reaches this merger stage this Infinite Divine Power takes over. Our Bandgi is recognized and blessed as Puran Bandgi by Dhan Dhan Paar Braham Pita Parmeshwar Ji then we perform Namaskaar to our self. When we get a Hukam from within to perform Namaskaar to our self, it means our Bandgi is complete. Our Rom Rom has been blessed with Amrit, we have physically gone into Rom Rom Naam Simran. Our entire body is filled with Amrit, all of our Sat Sarovars have filled up with Amrit. There are various spiritual things that happen when our Bandgi is blessed and accepted as complete. People get different kinds of visions and spiritual experiences. Performing a Namaskaar to yourself means you have completely realized God within yourself and you are performing Namaskaar to the Infinite Divine Power that is running your body. Some Bhagat’s when sitting in Samadhi find their forehead goes and touches their own feet by itself. This is the stage that is called, “Aapas ka-o aapeh aadays.” When we are blessed with this divine GurParsaad then basically, we have gone beyond the three aspects of Maya into Atal Awastha. This means we have defeated Maya, this means that we have defeated Panj Doots and all of our spiritual desires have been fulfilled. This means we have become desire free and our Hirda has gone into complete contentment. This is the stage when the Infinite Divine Power takes over completely and all of our worries and anxiety disappears. Until this happens there is a feeling of uncertainty that keeps bothering us. Thinking about past and future is the reason for this feeling of insecurity and uncertainty. Worries and anxiety are due to this feeling of uncertainty that keeps us gripped. But, when the Infinite Divine Power takes over then everything appears exactly the way it is and all of our illusions, worries and anxiety disappear and we are blessed with a divine feeling of satisfaction, contentment, bliss, happiness, joy, and we feel filled up with a feeling that the entire creation is our family. This divine experience is unique and when we go into completely thought free stage, when our mind, Hirda, soul and body goes into complete silence, then there is nothing that remains to be asked or told, then the complete silence tells the story. The complete silence means no disturbance to mind, Hirda, soul and body. This is the height of eternal bliss and divine happiness so what else remains to be told or listened. This GurParsaad of Infinite Divine Power is the highest of the highest divine power and there is nothing beyond this Infinite Divine Power and only this Infinite Divine Power has the capability to take us to this Infinite Divine Power. There is no other way that will take us to this Infinite Divine Power. We can only reach this Infinite Divine Power by losing our own individuality. When individuality is lost then the Infinite Divine Power is completely realized and merges us into Himself. Just as a drop of rain goes back to the ocean and loses its identity and individuality and becomes the sea, in the same way losing our identity and individuality we are blessed with this GurParsaad of merging into this Infinite Divine Power. Jah aap rachi-o parpanch akaar. Tihu gun meh keeno bisthaar. Paap punn tah bha-ee kahaavat. Ko-oo narak ko-oo surag banchhaavat. Aal jaal maa-i-aa janjaal. Ha-umai moh bharam bhai bhaar. Dookh sookh maan apmaan. Anik parkaar kee-o bakh-yaan. Aapan khayl aap kar daykhai. Khayl sankochai ta-o nanak aykai. 7. That part of the creation which is visible to the naked eye is nothing but Maya. Any creation that has shape, dimensions, and color is nothing but Maya. This way the entire world that is visible to an ordinary person is all just Maya and is operated under the three aspects of Maya. The three aspects of Maya are the rulers of the entire creation that is visible to us. This is the divine Khel. The game that has been created by the Infinite Divine Power, which we call God, Akal Purakh or Paar Braham Parmeshwar. Maya is His creation too and Maya operates under the divine laws of His court which is called the Dargah. Just focus on yourself for a few minutes and the world around you. The entire world is so attractive that people get lost in the world. Some are lost in family relationships. Some are lost in the collection of properties and money. Some are lost in earning name and fame in society. Some are lost in their profession and in acquiring professional expertise that will bring them prootions and power. The bottom line is that everyone has their own priorities and to fulfill them they are working day and night. But, in this pursuit they have been completely taken over by Maya and have not noticed the effect of this upon them in the real divine sense. If you analyze your activities you will find that they all fall under one of the three aspects of Maya. That is why this world has been called the Bhavsagar. It is like a large pool of water that has diamonds and jewels sitting at the bottom which people are busy collecting. Many times people have to face many obstacles in reaching these treasures. Many times they choose to adopt unfair means to reach these treasures. Many times people have to face severe pain and sorrow to reach these treasures. However, God is sitting outside the pool and watching them playing this game that He has left them to play. This pool is full of worldly treasures and attractions and is being operated by Maya. Maya is in control of people and all of their activities whilst they are busy in collecting and saving these worldly treasures. In this process some are able to gather some treasures, whilst others are not so successful. This is like building a sandcastle on the beach which will be washed away by the next wave. In this way people have just become puppets in the hands of Maya. They have become a slave of Maya. They are being forced to drink this poison of the Rajo and Tamo aspects of Maya due to their Karni. Look at your forefathers, they were doing the same thing that you are doing now, but what did they take with them? And what are you going to take with you when death comes to your body? When you leave this world then all of your properties, bank balances, relationships, name and fame, positions and authorities will not go with you. Instead, you will carry the weight of all of your deeds to be born in some place in some form of life to keep on going through the same process again and again. At the same time there are some who are focused on the Sat aspects of Maya and are not so much into collecting and saving these worldly treasures, and are engaged in Daya, Dharam, Santokh and Sanjam, which is Sat Ki Karni. Such people are bound to achieve the GurParsaad one day. If nothing else happens, at least they will be blessed with another human life to keep working towards the GurParsaad. But, the ones who are absorbed in Rajo and Tamo aspects have little or no chance of finding their way out from this Bhavsagar. In order to help all of us, God with His utmost kindness sends the Sants, Bhagats, Braham Gyanis and SatGurus to help us find a way out of this Bhavsagar. When we go into the Seva of such souls and give up everything at their Sat Charans then we are blessed with the GurParsaad. Going to the Sat Charans of these Maha Purakhs is based on our Sat Ki Karni which forms our destiny to meet such a soul. Through these Maha Purakhs God explains to us how we can get out of this web of Maya. As a part of this divine play of God, He sent the SatGuru Sahibs in this world to help us all find a way out of the Bhavsagar. Dhan Dhan SatGuru Sahibs with their utmost kindness have given us GurBani which tells us in every Shabad how we can get out of this web of Maya. In the same way, there have been and there still are such souls in the world who can help you to find your way out of this web of Maya. Some do take advantage of these Maha Purakhs and give up everything at their Sat Charans with Tunn, Munn and Dhann and are blessed with the GurParsaad which frees them and blesses them with merger into the Infinite Divine Power. When this happens then there remains only One Infinite Divine Power, everything becomes false and a part of this divine play of God. The web of Maya contains illusions, delusions, Bharams, Dubidha, sorrows, pains, Maan, Apmaan, hell and all such negative forces that keep people drenched in its scum. The GurParsaad takes you out of it. At the end there remains only one Infinite Divine Power. Everything else is perishable and perishes one day for sure. Jah abigat bhagat tah aap. Jah pasrai paasaar sant partaap. Duhoo paakh ka aapeh dhanee. Un kee sobhaa unhoo banee. Aapeh ka-utak karai anad choj. Aapeh ras bhogan nirjog. Jis bhaavai tis aapan naa-ay laavai. Jis bhaavai tis khayl khilaavai. Baysumaar athaah agnat atolai. Ji-o bulaavhu ti-o nanak daas bolai. 8.21. Dhan Dhan Paar Braham Parmeshwar Ji’s divine play has been called the GurParsaadi Khel (the Game of Eternal Blessings) in this GurParsaadi writing. This Khel is GurParsaadi and this book is a part of the GurParsaadi Khel. That is why under the Puran Hukam of Akal Purakh Ji this book has been written trying to give you a glimpse of His infinite Mahima, the Mahima of His Naam, the Mahima of His Sants and Bhagats. The Sant and Bhagat is the Mahima of Akal Purakh, that is why He appears in His Sants and Bhagats. Wherever there is a Sant or a Bhagat sitting, God is right there. When the Infinite Divine Power takes over then a Sant is born. When the Infinite Divine Power takes over then a Bhagat is born from within us. When the Infinite Divine Power takes over our person then a Braham Gyani comes into power. Basically, there is no difference between a Sant, Bhagat, Braham Gyani, SatGur and a Khalsa. Therefore, Khalsa, Sant, Bhagat, Braham Gyani or a SatGur is the Mahima – glory of Akal Purakh Ji. God is represented by these Maha Purakhs on this Earth and these Maha Purakhs are always present on this Earth. In the Dargah, God is represented by Himself and among this world of Maya, God is represented by these Maha Purakhs. For a spiritually illiterate person the Dargah and the Earth are two ends, and these Maha Purakhs make both these ends meet through them. The Infinite Divine Power of Dargah is present on the Earth in the form of these Maha Purakhs. In both places this Infinite Divine Power is prevailing. Both the Dargah and world is being run by this Infinite Divine Power. As a part of His divine play He creates Sants, Bhagats, Braham Gyanis, SatGurus, Khalsas and Gurmukhs and blesses them with His divine powers. The ones who while sitting on Earth reach the Dargah and make a place for them in there, are blessed with His divine powers. The ones who follow His divine laws with His own command and achieve the GurParsaad, are blessed with this Infinite Divine Powers while physically sitting on this Earth, but at the same time sitting in the Dargah as well. That is why GurBani says wherever there is a Sant sitting the Dargah is right there. Wherever there is a Braham Gyani sitting, the Dargah is right there. Wherever there is a SatGur, sitting the Dargah is right there. And where there is Dargah there is no rule of Maya. So sitting at the Charans of a Sant is sitting in Dargah and beyond three aspects of Maya. This is why a Sant is the Mahima of Akal Purakh, because God makes the Dargah appear where there is a Sant present on this Earth and that is where both ends meet – Earth and Dargah. Earth becomes Dargah. Earth becomes Dhan Dhan where there is a Sant sitting. Our Simran and our Sat Karams are all carried out only by the grace of God. That is why it is called GurParsaad – the GurParsaad of Naam, Naam Simran, Naam Ki Kamai, Puran Bandgi and Seva. This GurParsaad is blessed to us only with the divine commandment. In fact, we do nothing. We are capable of doing nothing. Everything is carried out by the Infinite Divine Power. That is why the highest level of divine blessing is when this Infinite Divine Power takes over and our individuality and our identity is lost. Living in this world of Maya our focus on the Sat Karams and our prayers, our Ardas, and our complete surrender at the Sat Charans of the Guru bring us this GurParsaad. Our real life begins when we are blessed with the GurParsaad and this Infinite Divine Power takes over everything for us. This is called Jivan Mukti, then living in this world, we become internally detached. We will live in Sehaj Samadhi at every moment. At the same time enjoying all of the facilities of life and ruling over Maya. When the Infinite Divine Power takes over then whatever we say is the word of this Infinite Divine Power. Everything we do is under the Hukam. That is why GurBani is the word of the Infinite Divine Power. That is why the Shabad is the Guru as the Shabad is the Hukam and the Hukam is the Guru – it is the Infinite Divine Power. This Infinite Divine Power is Sat and this Sat is Dhan Dhan Paar Braham Pita Parmeshwar Ji. Blessed with Puran Braham Gyan when we look at any creation and every creation and try to go to its origin we find that every creation is proof of His amazing and infinite divine powers. The end of logic gives birth to the divine wisdom. Then we start to realize how surprising is His every creation. How it has originated and how it is run by this Infinite Divine Power. With this happening to our mind, Hirda, soul and body we are freed from the rule of Maya and find our self lost in nature all of the time. In this way we are able to enjoy everything in our life without being affected by Maya and at the same time being absorbed in nature – God.
  8. Many videos are available online of this incident. January 3, 2020 (RNS) – Hundreds of Muslims have mobbed a prominent Sikh gurdwara in Pakistan after months of tension over a Sikh woman's alleged forced conversion to Islam. According to media reports emerging from the region Friday (Jan. 3), several Sikh devotees were stranded for hours inside the Nankana Sahib, the pilgrimage site in Pakistan’s Punjab Province where Sikhism’s founder, Guru Nanak, was born in the 15th century. Muslim mobs pelted the gurdwara with stones and shouted that they would destroy the gurdwara and change its name to Ghulam-e-Mustafa, an Arabic term meaning the servant of the Prophet Muhammad, according to video posted on social media. The mob has since dispersed, and the gurdwara has been re-opened after police arrived on the scene and began arresting protesters, journalist Ravinder Singh told Religion News Service. The violence followed the celebration of Guru Gobind Singh Jayanti, a festival commemorating the birthday of the tenth Sikh guru, on Thursday. Indian leaders have condemned the attacks and urged Pakistani officials to protect the country’s Sikh minorities as well as the sanctity of the historic gurdwara. “India strongly condemns these wanton acts of destruction and desecration of the holy place,” the country’s Ministry of External Affairs said in a press statement. “We call upon the Government of Pakistan to take immediate steps to ensure the safety, security, and welfare of the members of the Sikh community. Strong action must be taken against the miscreants who indulged in desecration of the holy Gurudwara and attacked members of the minority Sikh community.” The mob was incited by the alleged “forcible abduction and conversion” of a local Sikh woman, Jagjit Kaur, in late August, the statement said. Kaur is the daughter of a pathi, or priest, at another local gurdwara. Local media reports say the mob was led by the family of Mohammad Hassan, a Muslim man who married Kaur. According to his family, the marriage and conversion were lawful and consensual, but authorities and local Sikhs have allegedly pressured Hassan to return Kaur to her family. On Thursday, Hassan's home was raided, and members of his family were detained by police. Other family members began a protest march, demanding his family's release. What was initially a private family matter soon escalated into a raucous religious protest, said Harinder Singh, co-founder of the U.S.-based Sikh Research Institute. "He went and appealed to people within the city of Nankana Sahib, basically saying, 'Look at what's happening in this Islamic Republic, the Muslims are not being protected,'" Harinder Singh, who has spoken to Sikhs at the gurdwara several times and urged Kaur's family to speak out after her conversion, told Religion News Service. "But then extreme clerics and friends of the family started giving serious threats... essentially saying there should be no sign left of this gurdwara or the Sikhs of the city." Harinder Singh told the Religion News Service he knows of a handful of other local incidents of forced conversions of young Sikh women, most of which have gone unreported and some of which he argues involved long-term grooming rather than violence. Either way, he said, the incidences have left Sikhs around Pakistan anxious for their future. "The crux of the issue is these two things: One, why are these forceful marriages and conversions taking place?" he asked. "And secondly, what kind of protections need to be given to these historic shrines in Pakistan, so they're not destroyed by an emotional outburst like this?" Sikh rights advocates say Pakistan's Sikh population has dropped dramatically since 2002, from an estimated 40,000 to 8,000, as forced conversions and violence against Sikhs have ramped up with little to no legal protections in place.
  9. In video that has surfaced on social media, cleric was seen stressing that Pak had been formed to not allow any Sikh to enter the country. Khadim Rizvi is the founder of Tehreek-e-Labbaik Pakistan, a religious-political organisation founded in 2015 known for its protests against any change to Pakistan's blasphemy law. Some of their protests have been on a large scale. (Photo: ANI) Islamabad: Despite inaugurating the Kartarpur corridor on a noble note to allow Sikh pilgrims to visit Gurdwara Darbar Sahib, Prime Minister Imran Khan has not been able to curb the religious fanaticism and barbarism that exists on his land in the so-called name of Islam. In a video that has surfaced on social media an Islamic cleric was seen stressing that Pakistan had been formed to not allow any Sikh to enter the country. "Pakistan is formed from the word 'Pak' or pious in Islam. The dirty habits of Sikhs will not be allowed here," Islamist scholar Khadim Hussain Rizvi was heard in the video talking about facilities availed by Sikh pilgrims visiting the Kartarpur Gurdwara. Khadim Rizvi is the founder of Tehreek-e-Labbaik Pakistan, a religious-political organisation founded in 2015 known for its protests against any change to Pakistan's blasphemy law. Some of their protests have been on a large scale. "Only Mecca and the Prophet are considered to be holy in our land. The Sikhs can visit Amritsar for pilgrimage if they want, but they should not come here," the cleric added. Experts at a talk show on Canadian Tag TV emphasised that the video is another confirmation that PM Imran Khan had attempted to buy the Sikh sentiment to use it against the BJP-led government in India and also fuel the separatist movement of Khalistan. The much-awaited Kartarpur Sahib Corridor, a 4.7-kilometre-long passage that connects Dera Baba Nanak Sahib in India's Gurdaspur and Gurdwara Darbar Sahib in Pakistan's Kartarpur was formally opened for pilgrims on Saturday three days ahead of 550th anniversary of the founder of Sikhism Guru Nanak Dev on November 12. A state-of-the-art Passenger Terminal Building, a fully air-conditioned building akin to an airport has also been built to facilitate nearly 5000 pilgrims each day along with necessary public amenities like kiosks, washrooms, childcare, first aid medical facilities, prayer room and snacks counters inside the main building. Robust security infrastructure is put in place with CCTV surveillance and public address systems. https://www.asianage.com/amp/world/south-asia/031219/pakistani-cleric-threatens-sikh-pilgrims-from-visiting-kartarpur-gurdwara.html?__twitter_impression=true

  12. Simran Stages In terms of a layman AJAPA JAAP is the spiritual condition of a person when the Simran goes on an auto pilot mode in your Surat and then in Hirdey and so on as explained below. It means that Simran becomes a round the clock thing inside you, Simran doesn’t stop at any moment, it carries on and such a condition comes with Gurkirpa and after a lot of Bhagti Kamai or can also be attained with the Kirpa of a Puran Braham Gyani. The normal sequence is as follows: 1. Jaap with Tounge – Rasna – this happens in Dharam Khand 2. Jaap with the breathing – with Swaas – this happens in Gyan Khand and Saram Khand 3. Then Naam goes into your mind – Surat, in your thinking, then it becomes Simran from Jaap – this is a very good stage – this happens in Saram Khand and Karam Khand – some people go into Smadhi at this stage. 4. The next stage is when Simran goes into Hirdey – this one is even much higher stage when Naam goes into Hirdey – this is where it goes on an automatic mode, this is where the real bhagti starts, one goes into Smadhi and Sun Smadhi– Karam Khand – this is when you go into Smadhi and the real bhagti starts, your bhagti account is opened in the Dargah. 5. The next stage is when Simran travels to the Nabhi, when Nabhi Kamal blossoms – Karam Khand 6. The next Stage is when Simran goes into Kundlini – Mooladhaar Chakkar and spine – Karam Khand 7. The next stage is when Simran travels through the spine to the brain, and back to Surat where it completes the cycle. This is what the real Mala of Naam is. When this happens then the Gyan Netter and Dassam Duaar opens and you form a permanent connection with Akal Purakh, you start to get divine knowledge – Braham Gyan. This happens in Sach Khand. Enjoyment – Anand in Smadhi and Sun Smadhi is beyond description. That is why the Maha Purakhs go into very deep meditation some time for days together. You experience a lot of things during your Smadhi and Sun Smadhi, see a lot of things, it is beyond description what happens and through what you go when you go into deep meditation. This is the stage when all the doors – Bajjar Kapaat are opened and there is a continuous flow of Amrit, body is always full of Amrit. 8. The Simran in Smadhi and Sun Smadhi continues until NIRGUN AND SARGUN becomes one, at this point Simran goes into rom-rom – every bit of your body does Naam Simran, your Suksham Dehi becomes as pure as gold, your entire body is filled with Naam Amrit all the time. You become Braham Leen, and reach Atal Awastha. These stages are beyond description. Sat Chit Anand Ghar Hamare – Gurmukh Rom Rom Har Dhyae – Nirgun Sargun Nirankaar Sun Smadhi Aap, Apan Kia Nanka Apan Hi Fir Jaap and so on. One lives in Puran Parkash all the time and listens to Ilahi Kirtan – Anhad Naad Dhunis all the time. It is just incredible experience. This is when one becomes Sat Ram Dass and is directed by the Almighty to serve the Sangat. And this is what your target should be when you have been prompted to move on the Bhagti Marg. Following is the benefit sequence: Jaap with Rasna 1000 times = Jaap in Swaas one time Jaap in Swaas 1000 times = Simran in Surat one time Simran in Surat 1000 times = Simran in Hirdey or elsewhere one time So Simran in Hirdey and beyond is the most rewarding one. Again some people might think we are getting into counting the benefit, and it is correct to say that we should not indulge in counting, but it is just a way to make the Sangat understand that which way and where Simran will bring what kind of rewards. The 1000 numbers signify that the rewards of Simran in Hirdey are much higher than doing Jaap with Rasna. If you do Jaap with Rasna your Rasna will become pavitter – pious, by doing jaap in along breathing – swass your swass will become pious – pavitter, by doing Simran in mind-Surat-Chit- mind will become pious – pavitter, and that is what you need to do to make your mind pious – pavitter, that is how you will have control on your mind – MAN JEETE JAG JEET – MAN TU JYOT SAROOP HAI and you will be able to rise above Panj Doots – KAAM, KRODH, LOBH, MOH, AHANKAAR AND ALSO ASA, TRISHNA, MANSHA, NINDYA, CHUGLI, BAKHILI, RAJ, JOBAN, DHAN, MAAL, ROOP, RAS, GANDH, THESE THUGS – MENTAL SICKNESSES. And when Simran goes in to Hirdey – and Simran will go to Hirdey by itself with Gurkirpa only, and so in Chit, Hirdey will become pavitter – pious and a pious Hirdey will become Mahaparupkari and Dana Dina, NIRBHAO, NIRVAIR and so on, it will start to absorb all the vital qualities of Akal Purakh and will become a Puran Sant Hirda, and will achieve JIVAN MUKTI – PARAM PADVI-BRAHAM GYAN. The true definition of a Sant is not by wearing a chola – outside dress and outside rituals, it is the Hirda that becomes Puran Sachyara – completely truthful and that – HIRDA IS SANT and when the Naam Rattan goes into Hirdey – jad naam rattn Hirdey vich jad da hai taan Braham Gyan di neev rakhi jandi hai ji, so please try to understand it and put it into your daily lives to get Naam Rattan planted in your Hirdey – then naam goes to Nabhi and spine and so on, and again it happens by itself and with Gurkirpa and not by our own efforts, it will happen only under Hukam. Again higher state of AMRIT IS NAAM AMRIT and – PRABH KA SIMRAN SABH TE UNCHA – HAR SIMRAN ME AAP NIRANKAARA – KINKA EK JIS JEE BASAVE TAKI MAHIMA GANI NAA AAWE – HAR KE NAAM SAMSR KICHU NAAHIN – TUDH BAAJH KUDO KOOD – EH DHAN SANCHO HOWO BHAGWANT, so please try to make your life cleaner, rise above Panj Doots, kill your desires and don’t indulge in Nindya, rise above all the doubts – Dubidha – Dharam De Bharam – follow the Braham Gyan of Gurbani in your daily lives, become a Puran Sachyara – completely truthful person, serve the truth and achieve your goal of Jivan Mukti. As you continue on this path, and as you make more and more progress by following and living according to Gurbani, and Simran is the most important ingradient over here, and you become more and more Sachyara, your Atmik Awastha will keep on moving upwards through the Five Khands.In Sach Khand you reach Chad Di Kala – this is a very high stage of spirituality, it is the completeness stage, it comes only after reaching the Atal Awastha, means when the soul is always in the Nirlep Awastha, means can’t be distracted or deviated due to any happening around you, doesn’t bring any doubts and bharams in side you concerning the Gur, Guru and Gurbani, it is the highest stage of bandgi, it is the Puran Braham Gyan Stage, Param Padvi Stage, the Sach Khand Stage, when nothing can break you up from the Gur, Guru and Gurbani, when you have completely won over the maya. The soul becomes a single vision, no worldly sukh or dukh can effect it, no animosity with anybody, no effect of ustat or nindya, always absorbed in Almighty, always doing good to others, no harming or hurting of anybody, win over panj doots, desires and maya. This state of Chad Di Kala comes through Naam. In Gurbani this is what the Satguru’s prayed to God if it is in God’s Will, that Naam Chad di kala be given to EVERYONE IN THE WHOLE WORLD FOR THEIR UPLIFMENT. ‘Nanak Naam Chad di kala. Teray Bhanay Sarbatt Da Bhalla.” When you are this state you also help others to reach it too. That is a SANT reason for being in this world.
  13. XPOSITION OF PRINCIPAL GURMAT DEVICE (JUGTI) OF LISTENING AND FUSION OF CONSCIOUSNESS WITH SOUND AND IMAGE OF GURMANTER (UNION OF SURAT WITH DHUN AND GURMANTER) Definition of listening Through the grace of Sri Guru Nanak Devji, astonishing benefits of word listening are available in Japji Sahib, for the salvation of the people of the entire world. Listening (Suniye) does not constitute ordinary hearing. What exactly is complete or real listening? The meaning of complete listening is achieving a state of absolute union of consciousness and sound, and maintaining this union as if both the entities have been sewn together. If this state of complete union persists with each breath and at all times, then it is a state of complete peace and a sign of being a perfect human being or a saint (Gurmukh avastha). This state can be achieved with the Guru’s grace by understanding and following the correct technique with intense meditation, concentration and self-discipline. General guidelines for the Art of Speaking andTechnique of Listening: (a) Gurmanter (Waheguru) should be spoken very softly and slowly so as to feel the airtype sound vibrations in the throat going upwards towards and in the head while focusing on both ears with full attention of mind as well as body. Stay relaxed and focused on sound vibrations while repeating the Gurmanter. Gurmanter can be repeated as one word but focus should be fully on sound vibrations and not on breath. Initially, one should repeat recitation of Gurmanter as many times as can be done conveniently in one breath because it would help in keeping the focus on sound vibrations. (b) When one starts feeling sound vibrations in the head, focus should be shifted to the highest point or spot in the head where such vibrations are being felt. Stay focused at the point while repeating the Gurmanter. (c) The point/spot in the head with Name-practice will move upwards and deeper in the head. With further practice, point/spot of sound vibrations will become thinner and thinner and more pointed. Focus should continue to be shifted to the point/spot where sound vibrations are being felt. (d) While doing Name-practice, efforts be made to bring and keep consciousness as close to sound vibrations as possible in a relaxed manner keeping in view the fact that in perfect listening, fusion of consciousness and sound should take place. (e) If one can focus on the highest and the deepest point/spot in the head without uttering Gurmanter, one should stay focused thereon as long as possible. (f) With marked improvement in the art of speaking and technique of listening, musical sounds called ‘Naads’ will be heard. One can stay focused on the deepest sound to improve and keep the focus on inward listening. (g) Maximum time be spent on Name-practice as per convenience. Best time for Name-practice are the ambrosial hours in a noise-free and clean environment Standards for measuring progress: The progress on the path of true listening can be judged by comparing with the following standards:- (A) With the union of consciousness and sound, has the mind achieved a state of persistent calm and stillness? Is the mind relaxed and at peace? (B) Do the consciousness and sound unite inside the head or at the top of the head during Name recitation? Is this union attained or not; and if so, for how long does it persist in a relaxed, natural and easy manner? (C) The following are the signs of union of consciousness with sound:- (1) Body and mind are awash in peace and bliss. (2) Improvement in condition of the body as a whole. (3) Spiritual intoxication. (4) Hearing of Naad (Divine or celestial sounds and music). Divine sounds are calming and pure, spiritually intoxicating and provide amazing joy. (D) Do the consciousness and sound unite without actually speaking the Name? If so how long does this union persist easily and effortlessly? (E) Effortless union of consciousness and sound is the state of absolute blissful meditation. GOAL: CONTINUOUS AND UNINTERRUPTED RESIDENCE OF NAAM IN MIND AND BODY A) The goal can be achieved if the Naam is made to stay in the consciousness, tongue, eyes, throat and abdomen simultaneously with ease and effortlessly. Sustained effort is to be made to achieve this goal. B) Naam has to be practiced by chanting, reciting, hearing and by writing and rewriting the Divine Name. Sustained practice will ensure success. Hurried and forced practice is prohibited and is to be avoided. The path of Divine Name recitation requires that it be practiced in a natural, easy and relaxed manner. C) It is imperative that the correct method of Naam practice is properly understood, followed and practiced. STEPS FOR NAAM PRACTICE FIRST STAGE: DISCOVERING the mind and reciting with mind Step 1: With closed eyes looking at the lips, recite the Divine Name with the tongue in a relaxed and easy manner while listening to its sound with the consciousness staying focused on the sound. Step 2: Keeping attention on the lips and both ears , focus on listening to the sound of the Divine Name as it is recited with the tongue. Step 3: Maintaining attention on the throat and both ears, focus on listening to the sound of the Divine Name while feeling the sound vibrations in the head. Step 4: Maintain attention on the head, recite the Divine Name and feel its sound as it vibrates just below the top of the head (taalu in Punjabi). Full focus should be centered on hearing. True benefit of reciting and listening to the Divine Name will begin to be accrued when it is done through the mind/consciousness/(Surat in Punjabi). The goal is to achieve this aforementioned state and continue the Naam practice with the mind. SECOND STAGE: Naam practice with the mind and body Step 5: Reciting Naam with tongue, attempt to maintain focus on the sound originating in the bottom of the throat. One Divine House (Ghar) is located in the throat. Effort should be made to unite consciousness with the sound and Gurmanter in the throat as in the Throat House, one may experience effulgence of Divine light there. Further, Naam is to descend to Hirdey through throat. For this reason, practice of Naam at the throat will be beneficial. Step 6: ‘Hirdey’ is located in the abdomen below the navel. While reciting Naam with tongue, focus attention on the sound as it resonates through the windpipe and travels to the ‘Hirdey’. Recitation of Name with tongue should be accompanied by movement of the abdomen. Step 7: Maintaining attention from throat through windpipe in the abdomen, continue to recite Name as it is accompanied by movement of the abdomen and focus on listening to the sound as it vibrates in the windpipe, throat and head while keeping attention in the Hirdey as well. Step 8: Naam Amrit can be accessed by listening through Hirdey. For achieving this state, focus on the sides of the abdomen as Hirdey is located below the navel, recite Gurmanter with tongue synchronizing with the movement of the abdomen maintaining primary attention at the sides of the abdomen for listening through the windpipe by Hirdey with secondary focus on listening through ears in the head as well as mind. Alternatively, focus primarily at the mind on top of the head with secondary focus on the ears, throat, windpipe and abdomen –all that simultaneously before uttering Gurmanter, then utter Gurmanter with full focus on listening the sound vibrations at the above-mentioned spots. Step 9: After long and sustained practice, with the imprint of the Gurmanter in the mind, on the tongue, in the throat, windpipe and Hirdey, Naam practice is done without uttering Gurmanter effortlessly, naturally and with ease. At this stage, mind and body will be Naam-dyed with the mind being steady and motionless. THIRD STAGE: I. II. To obtain benefit of the practice of Naam recitation, every effort should be made to recite and listen to the Divine Name with love and reverence, while following the contents of the above mentioned 9 steps. Without verbalizing the Name, attempt should be made to have the Divine Name reside in the mind at all times while standing, sitting, walking and lying down. FOURTH STAGE: As per the priceless words of Bhai Gurdasji, with the union of word, sound and consciousness, it is possible to reach the otherwise unapproachable God. Therefore in the fourth stage attempt is to be made to be achieve union of sound, word (image of word Waheguru) and consciousness in the mind and body. This union requires persistent practice that is to be performed in a natural, easy and relaxed manner. To obtain benefit of Naam meditation, union of these 3 entities is to be kept in mind while following the contents of the above mentioned 9 steps. For union of word and consciousness some special steps are to be followed. The word will enter and come to reside in the consciousness through the eyes. SPECIAL STEPS: Step 1: To write the word Waheguru lovingly 15- 20 times maintaining adequate spacing between each written word. Step 2: To read and recite the written words with reverence and love. Step 3: With eyes closed, practice creating image of the word Waheguru in the eyes. Step 4: To lovingly write, read and thereafter create image of the word Waheguru in the eyes. Step 5: Practice creating image of the word Waheguru in the eyes accompanied by its recitation. Step 6: Creating image of the word Waheguru in the consciousness and practice its recitation. Step 7: It is advisable to place stickers of the word Waheguru in the bedroom, kitchen, office and rear seat of the car, as per convenience. The image of the word Waheguru on the stickers is to be looked at lovingly and attempt is to be made to have the image reside in the eyes and mind. Step 8: Maintaining attention on the lips attempt to create the image of the word in the mouth or on the tongue accomapnied by its recitation with focus on listening to its sound. Step 9: Attention is to be maintained on the lips and both ears while creating the image of the word in the mouth or on the tongue, accompanied by its recitation with focus on listening to its sound. Step 10: Maintain attention on the throat and both ears, create image of the word in the throat accompanied by its recitation with tongue while listening to the sound and its vibrations in the head. Step 11: Maintain attention on the head, focus on the image of the word accompanied by its recitation with the tongue. Listen to the sound and its vibrations just below the top of the head (taalu in Punjabi) while attempting union of the word with its sound. Attempt should be made to maintain union of the image and sound of the word inside the head. Step 12: Maintaining attention on the image of the word in the throat, while reciting word with tongue concentrate on listening to the sound and attempting to keep focus at the bottom of the throat. Time devoted to this activity is based on availability and convenience. Step 13: ‘Hirdey’ is located in the abdomen below the navel. Keeping focus downwards on the abdomen or on the image of the word in the abdomen, recite Name with tongue while feeling the sound in the air passages of the lungs or lower down in the abdomen. Maintain fusion of concentration and sound and make the ‘Hirdey’ listen to it. Recitation with tongue should be accompanied by movement of the abdomen. Time devoted to this activity is based on availability and convenience. Step 14: While keeping focus downwards on the abdomen or on the image of the word in the abdomen recite Name with tongue accompanied by movements of the abdomen. Feeling the sound in the throat and head attention is to be focused on the sound of the word and fusion of word with its image. Time devoted to this activity is based on availability and convenience. Step 15: While keeping focus downwards on the abdomen or on the image of the word in the abdomen recite Name with tongue accompanied by movements of the abdomen. Feeling the sound just below the top of the head (taalu in Punjabi) attention is to be focused on the sound of the word and fusion of word with its image. Time devoted to this activity is based on availability and convenience. Step 16: To keep sitting in meditation quietly while feeling the Name and its fusion with its rhythm in the mind, eyes, mouth, throat and abdomen. Attention should be continuous and undisturbed. This is the state of complete peace and union of mind with the Divine Name. One should try to maintain this state of mind in a relaxed, natural and easy manner (effort should not be forced or done out of compulsion). NOTE: (i) In the fourth stage, focus should be on the image of the word and its sound. One has to keep trying to keep focus on these two entities while attempting to maintain their union. (ii) With the head bowed down, without speaking, looking at the abdomen, the image of the word has to be kept in the mind and inside the abdomen or above it. (iii) (iv) (v) By first practicing the above mentioned points through repeated recitation (speaking), one can make the Name reside in the mind. Following this, while maintaining union of the word and its image, recitation must now be continued in a natural and relaxed manner without actually speaking. The amount of time devoted to each point can be adjusted depending on convenience and availability. It is possible to have darshan of the otherwise unseen and unapproachable Wahegurujee whose grace alone can provide union of consciousness, Name and sound. The complete union of these three entities is possible only with the Guru’s grace. For this union to occur, one must keep saying ardaas at the feet of Satgurujee.

Panj shabad means the five divine sounds. They resound in the house of mind and also with Truth. The divine speech of Truth is known as Anhad Bani. It is the best of all the speeches. Truth Himself gives this speech. Sehaj dhun is the divine Word of Truth. It is the divine command for our minds and is also known as Hukam. Truth in His grace and mercy reveals His secret Shabad – the insignia of His existence- (Anhad Bani or Sehaj Dhun) to some blessed souls. The Guru gives the Gurmantra and through Gurmantra the secret Anhad Sabad (Word of Truth) is revealed to the seeker. The Sukhmana channel, located in the center of the spine travels upward making six circles (chakras). These six chakras are called khat chakras (six homes or six doors). These are the six places where the channels of Ida and Pingala meet with the Sukhmana channel. When the divine light of our soul travels through these circles, different types of sounds are produced. Gurbani says: kr kir qwl pKwvju nYnhu mwQY vjih rbwbw ] krnhu mDu bwsurI bwjY ijhvw Duin Awgwjw ] inriq kry kir mnUAw nwcY Awxy GUGr swjw ]1] rwm ko inriqkwrI ] pyKY pyKnhwru dieAwlw jyqw swju sIgwrI ] With the entry of divine light in the six chakras, the divine melody of drum beat appears and eyes act as tambourines. The sound of the guitar is heard in the forehead area. The sweet flute music resounds in the ears. The mind starts to dance is reflected by presence of sound of shaking ankle bracelets. This is the rhythmic dance of mind for the Truth. The Truth, sees all the make-up and decorations of such a mind. (SGGS 884) These sounds resemble the tones and tunes of a cricket, flute, gong, conch shell, horn, tinkling bells, trumpet, rebeck, singing cicadas in the silence of the night, and a falling bronze vessel. Other than five sounds, many more melodies manifest. On the opening of the sixth chakra, the Shabad enters the Gagan (the Tenth Sky). This continuously reverberating melody at the Tenth Sky is called Sehaj Dhun or Anhad sabad. When our mind enters the stage of UnnMunn (inward mind), all the doors open and the tunes and all the shabads start to sound. vwjy sbd Gnyry ] The divine melody of the Shabad vibrates. (SGGS 917) The combined symphony of these sounds is called Anhad Bani. When these melodies are very loud and fast they are called Taar Ghor Bajaantar (The grand orchestra of divine music). All these melodies reverberate at the Tenth Door in the Sukhmana and are called the divine music in the house of Sukhmana “Sukhman De Ghar Raag” Gr mih Gru dyKwie dyie so siqguru purKu sujwxu ] pMc sbd Duinkwr Duin qh bwjY sbdu nIswxu ] dIp loA pwqwl qh KMf mMfl hYrwnu ] qwr Gor bwijMqR qh swic qKiq sulqwnu ] suKmn kY Gir rwgu suin suMin mMfil ilv lwie ] AkQ kQw bIcwrIAY mnsw mnih smwie ] aulit kmlu AMimRiq BirAw iehu mnu kqhu n jwie ] Ajpw jwpu n vIsrY Awid jugwid smwie ] siB sKIAw pMcy imly gurmuiK inj Gir vwsu ] sbdu Koij iehu Gru lhY nwnku qw kw dwsu ] The True Guru is the All-knowing Primal Being; He shows us our true home within the home of the self. The Panch Shabad, the Five Primal Sounds, resonate and resound within; the insignia of the Shabad is revealed there, vibrating gloriously. Worlds and realms, nether regions, solar systems and galaxies are wondrously revealed. The strings and the harps vibrate and resound; the true throne of the Truth is there. Listen to the music at the Sukhman channel and concentrate in the sunn. Contemplate the Unspoken Speech, and the desires of the mind are dissolved. The heart-lotus is turned upside-down, and is filled with Ambrosial Nectar. This mind does not go out; it does not get distracted. It remembers truth without chanting and the mind is immersed in the Primal Truth of the ages. All the companions of this path are blessed with the five shabads. The Gurmukh minds dwell in their homes. Nanak is the slave of that one who seeks the Shabad and finds their home within. (SGGS 1291) From: Longing love for truth by Bhai Sewa Singh Ji Tarmala
