  1. From Bhai Randhir Singh Ji's book 'Anhad Shabd Dasam Duar' OPEN DISCUSSION OF UNSTRUCK ETHEREAL MUSIC AT TENTH DOOR OF ABODE DIVINE. CHAPTER 2 ‐ INDICATIONS OF DASAM DUAR OPENING A. Trickling of Amrit. B. Hearing of unstruck Ethereal Music, Anhad. The two indications of Dasam Duar opening are: First is the trickling of Amrit, extremely pure. Secondly the highly elating sound of Ethereal Music, so ecstatic, is heard. These two events of spiritual bliss are primary indications that are known to occur, seen and heard that naturally follow the high spiritual Sahaj attainment. These are not mere wishful dreams. In the fort of human frame temple and Abode of Self, these are true happenings, experienced in state of full awakeness. Ceaseless Naam‐Devotion leads to: aulitE kmlu bRhmu bIcwir ] AMimRq Dwr ggin ds duAwir ] Turns around the lotus of interior body with contemplation of Lord Supreme. Then what follows is: Trickles Amrit from the highest Dasam‐Duar.

Collecting Nectar Supreme, my selfhood burns as fuel in the furnace. 1. Rag Gaurri p.328 Essence of wisdom, Nectarian Divine‐Knowledge, dawns as Sahaj state of Equipoise. This entire Play Divine occurs within the body. It may be possible to deny events of outside occurrence but occurrence within interior of body, closest personal experiences, can never be denied. Strange and unfamiliar it appears to those, without personal experience of Amrit True, Light Divine and the consequent Bliss. This blissfulness is limited to devotees of ceaseless Naam‐Devotion. Their bodies are rejuvenated with nourishment of Amrit, drinking deep of this. Their inner well of body interior is brimming with Amrit. The splendour of Light‐Divine within imparts golden hue to their bodies. The body so blessed has great appeal and attraction with a magnetic pull over the beholders. Thus they appear beautifully enchanting. kwieAw kMcnu sbdy rwqI swcY nwie ipAwrI ]18] kwieAw AMimRiq rhI BrpUry pweIAY sbid vIcwrI ]19] Golden is body imbued with Naam, Naam‐Divine makes it beautifully enchanting. 18. Body is brimming with Amrit within, bestowed through Naam contemplation. 19. Ramkali M.3 p.911 It is possible to drink Amrit within, in interior of the body, but "obtained through NaamContemplation" is the pre‐requisite for occurrence of this Divine Play. Chanting of Guru's Chant, Naam, brings about alchemic phenomenon of brimfulness of body with Amrit, a perpetual occurrence. The source is the opening of Dasam Duar, responsible for regular trickle of Amrit of most exalting taste and ecstatic. The devout, bearing this unbearable experience of pure joy, bloat not to make a show of shallowness. Their spirit is enjoying nourishment of high spirituality engrossed in ecstasy of Nam. So long as, satiated with Amrit, switch at navel is kept pressed; the enlightened spirit enjoys untold bliss of celestial spheres, nourished with Amrit. The devotee, enjoying this state, tastes most wonderful Amrit and listens to elating Ethereal Music. This is a state of absolute concentration, holding all body organs in control. Rhythm of Anhad Music holds not only body organs under control but it is verily efficacious in holding entire universal balance in wonderful Natural‐Play‐Divine. This is the force of Naam‐ Amrit, Word‐Divine! Its play is evident at Dasam Duar, as Naam‐ Force, sustaining all life in perfect control and balance, in accordance with Gurbani: 'The Word‐Divine that holds universal balance." This Naam‐ Force has the capability of perfect control over volatile mind in the interior of body, replica of universal model. It is essential to activate this Force to bring it into Play with Touch‐stone of Naam, Guru's Word. It is realizing this state of Amrit‐Nourishment, automatic natural‐rhythmic recitation and perfect balance of model universe within the body, that Jingle of unstruck Ethereal Music, Anhad, multiorgan music is heard. This is very Real! Manifestation of Anhad starts Celestial Music and the entire region from highest Dasam Duar to navel becomes one. This is the miraculous working of Naam‐Devotion and consequent enlightenment within, transforming mortal frame into Amrit‐ Enlightenment of body with Golden Hue. Mortals, abiding in three states of worldliness can never imagine the most ecstatic play of Anhad Shabad‐Dasam Duar. This is incomprehensible, invisible and Limitless, Divine‐spiritual‐secret. All philosophical, scientific, chants and all the Vedicknowledge cannot go beyond the physical world. With limited conceptual aspect, why should one delve in frivolous argumentation? If one is a sincere and true seeker, it is open for spiritual experimentation. However, it is far too easy to be a non‐believer than a man of faith that calls for dedicated labour of Divine‐Love. The last line of the earlier quote (Chapter 1): "Thus speaks Nanak, Realizing Satguru controlled is volatile mind that comes to abide in Abode of Self ‐ Dasam Duar." It is authentication of the preceding lines through reaffirmation that controlled mind abides in Abode of Self at Dasam‐Duar. Mind undergoes experiences as stated below: iehu mnUAw sdw suiK vsY shjy kry vwpwrw ] AMqir gur igAwnu hir rqnu hY mukiq krwvxhwrw ] This mind always dwelling in peace, delves naturally in the business of Naam‐Devotion, gathering Naam wealth. Bestowed by Guru's Grace is Knowledge Divine and Jewel of Naam within, efficacious for redeeming. (2.)

Guru‐oriented mind keeps awake in Divine‐devotion. Listening to unstruck Celestial Music, Anhad, the devotee with ardent faith contemplates Word bestowed by Guru, Naam, and seeks self within. Realizing self, he attains oneness with Lord, Formless. 7. Immaculate becomes the mind at Abode of Self Dasam Duar, envisioning Lord everywhere. Gurmukh beings are ever engrossed in Loving Devotion. (8.) Aasa M.1 p.415 iehu mnu inhclu ihrdY vsIAly gurmuiK mUlu pCwix rhY ] nwiB pvnu Gir Awsix bYsY gurmuiK Kojq qqu lhY ] su sbdu inrMqir inj Gir AwCY iqRBvx joiq su sbid lhY ] KwvY dUK BUK swcy kI swcy hI iqRpqwis rhY ] Anhd bwxI gurmuiK jwxI ibrlo ko ArQwvY ] nwnku AwKY scu suBwKY sic rpY rMgu kbhU n jwvY ]65] Guru‐oriented realize Lord, as their Source and their steady minds abide in their interior. Lifebreath abides in bliss on the seat of navel and seeking Gurmukh finds the Essence. Word‐Divine also resides in interior, Abode of Self. Realized is this Light‐Divine, Effulgent Naam, the universal Sustainer. Yearning hunger for Lord True ends afflictions and satiated is mind in seeking Eternal One. Graced rare ones comprehend Naam‐force of Ethereal Anhad, Sustainer of all life. Says Nanak, those reciting Naam all the time are imbued with Naam and this hue of Love‐Divine is Eternal. Ramkali M.1 Sidh Gost p.945 Practitioner of Naam Simran breath by breath, WAHEGURU, within the interior ceaselessly as normal practice, keeps at it all the time. Blessed is this Naam‐devotee with peace eternal in inner being. Mind is steady in Bliss. Lighted within is the lamp of Naam. This is the enlightenment of Naam‐light, Jewel of knowledge within, the source of Liberation from worldliness. "Bestowed by Guru is the commodity of Knowledge, Naam". There is no other redeeming spiritual knowledge. Knowledge of other faiths pertains to functional names of Divine only. Liberating and enlightening knowledge comes through Gurmat. Guru‐oriented beings listen only to the singing of True Gurbani and shun the half‐baked Bani of imperfection. They delve only in True Naam Amrit, Most Sublime; nothing else is of their interest. They remain wide‐awake in Guru‐devotion of Naam‐Simran, God‐ remembrance. They blissfully enjoy celestial Music, Anhad Shabad. The Gurmukhs, young spiritual swans take NaamNourishment and contemplate Word‐Divine. They draw their sustenance from spiritual Jewels and pearls of Naam and Gurbani. Realizing Essence of Spirit within, engrossed they remain in Anhad Shabad. Their minds become immaculate through perpetual engrossment in Divine. At this stage of spiritual awakening of Fourth state of Knowledge, Gurmukhs remain engrossed in hearkening Anhad Shabad and in Meditation. The volatile mind, under control of Gur‐Shabad, attains absolute steadiness. Through practice of Naam Simran, mind now comprehends The Source, Divine‐spirit. This is inner vision of Naam‐enlightenment. Naam‐lamp is lighted with the bellow‐like simran, breath by breath and friction of this touchstone within generates spiritual spark. This spiritual spark is the sweetest, life‐giving initial nourishment of Amrit. This has the effect of permeating through every vein of the body, engulfing with enlightenment. Unfathomable sweet engrossment leads to: iehu mnu inhclu ihrdY vsIAly… ‐ "Abides this mind steadily in the interior… No more mind wavers, abiding steadily within. Naam practice and sprinkling of Amrit, gushing sound of continuous automatic Simran, straightens up the inverted lotus at the navel and nurses it to flourish with nourishing panacea of Amrit. Nectarian taste of Amrit is without parallel. It generates life‐giving light of electrification that holds the breath at navel under the influence of ecstatic tasting of Amrit. Thus pressed with breath holding, navel experiences bliss of enlightenment. Ecstasy of this experience brings about absolute concentration of mind. Abiding in the self abode at lotus of navel, consciousness enjoys heavenly bliss that lifts the consciousness to new heights. With breath thus pressed at navel, consciousness takes flight to unlimited heights. Higher the flight of consciousness, greater the bliss of Ecstatic Amrit. This is the discovery of natural consequence of Divine yearning and bliss, contemplating Oneness of individual soul with Essence of Supreme soul. The above is a brief explanation of the line in foregoing Gurbani Shabad. "Life breath abides in bliss on the seat of navel and seeking Gurmukh finds essence." What more could be said? Those, who have experienced more of the referred Play‐Divine, may wish to elaborate further. This is the limit of my personal experience. kihby kau soBw nhI dyKw hI prvwnu ]121] "Words fail to express this marvel. Only the experience can truly satisfy. " Slok Bhagat Kabir Ji p.1370 It is not that vivid explanation of Surat‐Shabad Gurmat explanation is withheld purposely. The fact is that it defies description and it is indeed a matter of personal experience. Beyond words is Fathomless! Shabad, Gurmantar, abiding at the seat at navel, the seeker Gurmukh comprehends Essence and lights up spiritual enlightenment within his interior void perpetually. The bigger Universal Play in nature is also envisioned and comprehended through Gur Shabad. The alchemy of Naam‐Simran becomes nectarine, ceaseless and automatic phenomenon. The Gurmukh practitioner is not inconvenienced in any way, unlike the practitioners of Hathh Yoga. In the natural Gurmat Yog, of God Realization, body torturing is not involved. Yearning for more, unlimited flourish of enchanting enlightening further enhances spiritual hunger and bliss of enlightenment limitlessly. Hungering to behold Eternal Lord, Creator, ends all bodily afflictions as also evils of mind. No more is there any thirst for worldly desires. The yearning for more and more contemplation of Naam is most over powering to end all other wants. And this insatiability of Naam devotees is thus limitless. There is no end to hunger for Naam and yearning to behold Lord of Naam, yet there is a strange sense of fulfilment and satisfaction. No more is a scope left for worldliness and its desires nor bothersome pain and sorrow. Sustenance of Gurmat Naam, vision of the Lord and complete satiation therein is the high Gurmat spirituality that enables hearing elating Music of Anhad Shabad tinkling. Only rare Gurmukh devotees come to realize Anhad Bani. Though rarely experienced, yet Truth of this is undeniable. Guru Nanak bears witness true, that once attained, this high spirituality and its hue become eternal. idnu idnu cVY svwieAw nwnk hoq n Gwit ]16] "O Nanak! ever mounting is the elation of the accepted devotees and there is never a slide down in their state of spirituality. " Thitee Gaurri M.5 p.30 Truly accomplished is the life with such spirituality, available only to the initiated Gursikhs, faithful to Gurmat. Their love for Gurmat way of life makes for engrossment in Naam and its alchemy to flourish in essence of Anhad. Their life‐breath imbued thus in high spirituality, they get rid of all doubt and sorrow. All the concentration is focussed on Guru's word, chant of Naam and consequently in Invisible and Incomprehensible Lord. It is only Naam‐devotion and its miraculous influence that enable contemplation of Lord Supreme and reaching highest spirituality. Heard now is Anhad sound of Musical organs along with singing of Gurbani as the Heavenly Ethereal Music. It is Grace of the Benevolent Guru that opens the heavy gates of Dasam Duar and the graced ones alone merge in Spirit‐Divine. Says Gurbani: jIvno mY jIvnu pwieAw gurmuiK Bwey rwm ] hir nwmo hir nwmu dyvY myrY pRwin vswey rwm ] hir hir nwmu myrY pRwin vswey sBu sMsw dUKu gvwieAw ] Aidstu Agocru gur bcin iDAwieAw pivqR prm pdu pwieAw ] Anhd Duin vwjih inq vwjy gweI siqgur bwxI ] nwnk dwiq krI pRiB dwqY joqI joiq smwxI ]1] Found is the life, real life through Guru's teaching, enchanting Gurbani. Guru bestows Naam‐Divine with each breath. Breathing Naam with every breath, all my doubt and sorrow is banished. Contemplating Invisible and Incomprehensible Lord through Gurbani, attained is the highest pure supreme spirituality. Singing Satguru's Bani, I have come to enjoy ceaselessly elating Ethereal Unstruck Music, Anhad Shabad. O Nanak! Bestowed is Grace Divine by Benevolent Lord and merged is my soul with Spirit‐Divine. 1. Rag Aasa Chhant M.4 p.442 Hearing of Anhad Shabad and merging with Spirit‐Divine is not easily attained through mere words or high sermons. It requires utmost Naam‐Devotion, bestowed only by Gracious Guru, Sovereign, Controller of Naam commodity. It is through True Satguru, met through, great fortune, whose tutelage may bestow Naam‐devotion, with His Grace. Naam‐devotion is ceaseless engrossment in Naam. The virtues of Naam‐Jewel are to be sung with loving Faith through Gurbani endlessly. Forsaken are personal needs of eating and sleeping until realization of the high objective. Such has to be the meditation of engrossed and unwavering mind! Practioners of this description are found in Guru's House, Gursikhs delving in Naam‐Jewel and earning great Merit‐Divine. They offer their entire beings, body and mind, to Satguru in devotion and remain under His refuge. Hopeful of Guru's Grace, they are engrossed in Naam and Gurbani devotion. Graced are they! Their life objective is attained, realizing Fathomless, Incomprehensible and Invisible Lord. Says Gurbani quote: myrw Twkuro Twkuru nIkw Agm AQwhw rwm ] hir pUjI hir pUjI cwhI myry siqgur swhw rwm ] hir pUjI cwhI nwmu ibswhI gux gwvY gux BwvY ] nId BUK sB prhir iqAwgI suMny suMin smwvY ] vxjwry iek BwqI Awvih lwhw hir nwmu lY jwhy ] nwnk mnu qnu Arip gur AwgY ijsu pRwpiq so pwey ]3] Inaccessible and Fathomless Lord of mine is Most Enchanting. O' Satguru, my Sovereign, I seek Commodity of Naam Divine through Your Grace! Seeking Naam and engaging in sole occupation of Singing Virtues‐Divine with loving devotion of Lord. Forsaking worldly slumber and hunger, devotee merges with Lord, Unmanifested. Seekers of Naam‐Divine alone come together and earn great Merit‐Divine. O' Nanak! Making offering of entire being, mind and body to Satguru, rare one, graced by Satguru, alone receives Naam commodity. 3. Aasa chhant M.4 Ghar 1 p.442 Sri Guru Granth Sahib, Lord of Naam and Gurbani, is verily a brimming ocean with the spiritual Jewels, that enable realization of Dasam Duar, hearing of Anhad Shabad, Celestial Music and envisioned is Reality of Lord Supreme. This is an accomplishment of those, who put unwavering Faith in Gurbani and lead Gurmat way of life. Naam‐Jewel comes to abide in their hearts and opened is the vista of single‐minded Ceaseless Naam‐devotion. Ocean like interior of body is thus churned with stirrer of Naam‐recitation, to find the Essence. It then becomes evident that Guru and Lord Supreme are One as Spirit‐Divine, envisioned through enlightenment of Self. rqnw rqn pdwrQ bhu swgru BirAw rwm ] bwxI gurbwxI lwgy iqn@ hiQ ciVAw rwm ] gurbwxI lwgy iqn@ hiQ ciVAw inrmolku rqnu Apwrw ] hir hir nwmu Aqolku pwieAw qyrI Bgiq Bry BMfwrw ] smuMdu ivroil srIru hm dyiKAw iek vsqu AnUp idKweI ] gur goivMdu guoivMdu gurU hY nwnk Bydu n BweI ]4]1]8] Brimful is the ocean‐like interior with Spiritual Jewels. Found is this Treasure by devotees of Gurbani. Delving in Gurbani is found most precious Naam‐Jewel. Finding Naam‐Divine leads to abundance of Naam‐Devotion. Churning body‐ocean, envisioned is the novelty, Guru is Lord Supreme and Lord Supreme is Guru! O' Nanak! No difference can be discerned with Oneness in Spirit‐Divine. 4. 1. 8. Rag Aasa Chhant M.4 p.442 Blessed with vision of Invisible, Incomprehensible Lord Supreme, these Gurmukhs also experience Dasam Duar and Secret Divine play of Anhad Shabad. In elation of their ecstasy, they pour out: Ando Andu Gxw mY so pRBu fITw rwm ] cwiKAVw cwiKAVw mY hir rsu mITw rwm ] hir rsu mITw mn mih vUTw siqguru qUTw shju BieAw ] igRhu vis AwieAw mMglu gwieAw pMc dust Eie Bwig gieAw ] sIql AwGwxy AMimRq bwxy swjn sMq bsITw ] khu nwnk hir isau mnu mwinAw so pRBu nYxI fITw ]1] All is bliss with vision of the Lord! Tasted is the sweet Naam‐Amrit. Noam has come to abide in my mind with Grace of Guru. I now enjoy Equipoise, Spiritual Sahaj. Flourished is my interior being, bursting forth in joyful singing. Banished are the five evil foes. Cool and satiated is my being with Amrit Gurbani. Such is benevolence of Saintly Guru, Friend Emissary Divine! Says Nanak, beholding the Lord with my own eyes, my mind is enslaved to Him. 1. Aasa M.5 Chhant Ghar 1 p.452 After initiation and taking Amrit through Five Chosen Friendly Saints and Divine‐emissaries, when some predestined mortals experience first vision of Divine Spirit, they get elated beyond measure. In this blissful state, brimming with joy, they pour out their feelings, expressed in devotional ecstasy of Gurbani Kirtan. It is piercing like Celestial Music, in accordance with Will‐Divine. Revelation of this nature through personages of Gurus was also automatic under compulsion of joyful direct experience, most high through Divine Communication. Timeless Being, Lord Almighty, willed this revelation so as to establish witness for the benefit of non‐believer mortals. Thus under authority of Divine is established the reality of invisible spiritual states visioned, as invisible is made visible. In the face of Truth Divine, it would not be possible to deny for Gursikhs, rather the reality will coax them to progress further in spirit of elation. In this vein, Lord of Gursikhs, fifth Nanak has revealed this authenticated Gurbani about Anhad Shabad: nv inDy nau inDy myry Gr mih AweI rwm ] sBu ikCu mY sBu ikCu pwieAw nwmu iDAweI rwm ] nwmu iDAweI sdw sKweI shj suBweI goivMdw ] gxq imtweI cUkI DweI kdy n ivAwpY mn icMdw ] goivMd gwjy Anhd vwjy Acrj soB bxweI ] khu nwnk ipru myrY sMgy qw mY nv iniD pweI ]3] All the nine treasures are available at my door. I have attained all through Naam‐contemplation. Meditating Naam, Lord has become my constant natural Companion. Gone is all worry, no more straying about, my stable mind is ever carefree and peaceful. Automatic is the thundering of Lord from within and Unstruck Ethereal Music, Anhad Shabad of ecstatic beauty. Says Nanak, Lord abiding with me, I have attained all the nine treasures. 3. Rag Aasa Chhant M.5 Ghar 1 p.452‐53 Devotees of ordained Gurmat‐Naam, Gurmukhs have personally verified Gurbani‐Truth. Naamdevotion enables all the above quoted experiences and accomplishment of stated spirituality. With enlightenment of Naam, the interior being is all lighted up. The treasure of all treasures, WAHEGURU, is visioned closer than the closest, in the very being. This comes as undeniable experience. Here and now, a direct experience! All worries are then gone. Mind abandons all straying about and dwells steadily in peace. Lord thunders forth from within and being is rejuvenated with perpetual youth. Mind is blissful, imbued with Divine‐Love and beauty. Meeting Lord, Husband, face to face and in full contact, one is blessed with real treasures and cherished life objective. All talk of other supernatural powers appears to be a lowly acquisition.
  2. Anand Sahib Pauri – 1 Anand bha-i-aa mayree maa-ay satguroo mai paa-i-aa. Satgur ta paa-i-aa sahj saytee man vajee-aa vaadhaa-ee-aa. Raag ratan parvaar paree-aa sabad gaavan aa-ee-aa.

Kahai naanak anand ho-aa satguroo mai paa-i-aa. ||1|| (Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji 917) The common religious preachers, who have neither been ordained by Dargah to preach religion nor have earned this capability or divine edict with their own spiritual accomplishments and attainment of Puran Awastha, or such human beings who haven’t been supremely blessed by Sat PaarBraham to become one with Him and consequently haven’t been endowed with Seva of Parupkaar and Maha Parupkaar, or those human beings who have turned religious preaching into a means of livelihood or are engaged in trading of GurBani and Kirtan for earning money – such Chunch Gyanis (possessing superficial knowledge) propound the meaning of SatGuru as the true Guru, which is contrary to Puran Sat. The acquisition of Puran Braham Gyan is Gur Parsaad, and this isn’t accomplished by mere reading of GurBani. If a human being could acquire Braham Gyan by mere reading, all those who spend their lifetime in reading GurBani or in reciting GurBani would have acquired Braham Gyan. If it were so, there wouldn’t have been such a scarcity of Braham Gyani great beings. But this is not the case. This is the sole reason that almost entire Sangat is trapped in the deceptions of such Chunch Gyanis (such Chunch Gyanis who themselves are stuck in Maya and ignorant of Puran Sat), and all these people spend their lives complying with the external (superficial) Rehats and in menially reading GurBani, without any spiritual accomplishments. Having received Gur Parsaad, and immersing oneself in the Bandagi of Sat PaarBraham Parmeshar – a human being acquires the blessing of Puran Braham Gyan when he or she obtains Darshan of Akaal Purakh on transcending beyond Trigun Maya, i.e. on triumphing over Maya. Only such human beings who have become one with Sat PaarBraham Parmeshar are – in accordance with the divine Hukam – ordained to bestow Puran Sat upon Sangat. Only such Puran Braham Gyanis and Puran Sant great beings who have attained Puran Awastha and Param Padvi are – in accordance with the divine Hukam – blessed with Seva of Maha Parupkaar to bestow GurParsaad of SatNaam, SatNaam Simran, SatNaam Di Kamai and Puran Bandagi upon others. When Bandagi of a human being is approved in Dargah, the fount of Puran Braham Gyan begins to gush from Sat Sarovars located within Suksham Dehi of the human being. Therefore it is immensely essential to know, to understand and to accept this supremely true fact that only such great beings who have assimilated themselves in Sat and have transformed themselves into Sat Roop have – in accordance with the divine Hukam – the right to bestow GurParsaad upon others. Once a human being realizes the immense and supremely powerful magnificence of “Sat”, he or she may be regarded as having undesrstood tha magnificence of SatGuru. The essence of “Guru” is nothing but the essence of “Sat”. The supreme “essence” is nothing but the essence of “Sat”. The essence of “Sat” alone is the Nirgun “essence” of PaarBraham Parmeshar, which abides within every human being. It is only the presence of the supreme essence of “Sat” within the human body which is its immutable life-force. The “essence of Sat” is the “Jyot” (“the divine light within; soul”) that sustains life within a human body. This “supreme essence – Sat” itself is the essence of “Guru”. Those human beings who by GurParsaad are endowed with Puran Bandagi are the only ones who realize Puran Braham Gyan about this Puran Sat. Such great beings who accomplish their Bandagi and assimilate themselves in Puran Sat are the only ones to realize Puran Braham Gyan about this supreme essence “Sat”. The magnificence of such great beings is manifested in GurBani by addressing them as SatGuru, Sant, Sadh, Braham Gyani, Khalsa, Jan, Gurmukh and Bhagat. The entire GurBani is nothing but the magnificence of such great souls who have accomplished their Bandagi and earned esteem in Dargah. Such supremely powerful souls – who become one with Akaal Purakh – are the ones to manifest themselves upon this earth in the form of the greatest and the highest magnificence of Akaal Purakh. Such supreme souls have all their Bajjar Kapaats opened up and all the seven Sat Sarovar illuminated within their Suksham Dehi. Every cell of their body is illuminated with “Sat” Naam. Every cell of their body begins to abide in SatNaam Simran. By the opening up of their Dassam Duaar, such great beings realize Anhad Shabad (incessant fall of Amrit at the Dassam Duaar along with Anhad Naad – the divine un-struck music of five primal sounds played on divine musical instruments). Anhad Shabad manifests itself at Dassam Duaar of a human being. Anhad Naad is the Akhand Kirtan (divine incessant chanting of Shabad) which constantly resonates at Dassam Duaar of a human being. Anhad Shabad is the divine sacred music, bereft of any limits or bounds, that manfests itself at Dassam Duaar of a human being and is forever played at Dassam Duaar. Anhad sabad dasam du-aar vaji-o tah amrit naam chu-aa-i-aa thaa. ||2|| (Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji 1002) Na-o darvaajay dasvai muktaa anhad sabad vajaavani-aa. ||3|| (Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji 110) Anhad Shabad which, once Dassam Duaar is opened up, manifests itself and plays at Dassam Duaar is the highest form of Amrit. (Dass has had this personal experience that, once his Dassam Duaar was opened up, this divine music made appearance at Dassam Duaar and after a little while the word SatNaam manifested itself from within this music; from the day this Anhad Shabad appeared at Dass’s Dassam Duaar and till today, the February 11, 2014, it’s been more than 13 years that this music has played on, constantly and incessantly. When Dass meditates upon this divine music, the resonance of this music assumes very high notes. Dass experiences utter peace and immense bliss in this state of meditation. Having felt utter peace, Dass attains the state of Sunn (complete peace and calmness). In this state, which is called in GurBani as Sunn Samadhi, there are no thoughts and no awareness of time. This is the state SatGuru Sahiban have described in these supremely powerful words). As soon as Dassam Duaar is opened up, Param Jyot manifests itself in one’s Hirda. There is brightness all around. The entire body becomes radiant. The entire body begins to radiate brilliance. The eyes begin to perceieve immense brightness. (In Dass’s personal experience he beheld immense brightness at the time his Dassam Duaar opened up, and from that moment on Dass’s eyes have perceived constant illumination. His entire body became radiant. He began to hear the throb of SatNaam from every cell of his body, and he is since hearing it constantly. As the time passes, the music of Anhad Shabad is getting deeper, the illumination is surging, and the throbbing of SatNaam in every cell of the body is gaining pace. When Dass is outside pondering over the natural world, everything disappears in the brightness. Nothing is left but the brightness). Anhad Shabad carries immense magnificence, and it is impossible to describe this supremey powerful magnificence. That is, it is impossible to distinguish the musical instruments playing these tunes. This divine music harbours within itself an amazing peace. Only those human beings who hear this divine music realize this truth. SatGuru Sahiban have divulged this divine music by their own experiences in many Salok’s of GurBani: Anhad sabad achraj bismaad. (Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji 1143) Aanand anhad vajeh vaajay har aap gal maylaava-ay. (Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji 923) Naanak anhad Dhunee dar vajday mili-aa har so-ee. ||28|| (Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji 1248) Tah anhad sabad vajeh Dhun banee sehjay sahj samaa-ee hay. ||6|| (Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji 1069) The constant playing of Anhad Shabad at Dassam Duaar is an immensly amazing and mystifying phenomenon. Who plays this divine music and how do we hear it? What is the origin of this divine music? Which supreme power inherent in this divine music carries a human being into the state of Sunn? When these questions arise in the mind of a human being, he or she is bewildered. A human being who begins to realize Anhad Shabad obtains Darshan of Sat PaarBraham Parmeshar. Such a human being becomes one with Sat PaarBraham Parmeshar. The bliss that a human being attains in this state is nothing but Sat Chit Anand. This bliss is indescribable in words. The entire nature constantly sings praise of the magnificence of Sat PaarBraham Parmeshar. All nature constantly abides in Naam Simran of Sat PaarBraham Parmeshar. The whole universe is resonant with the sacred tunes of the songs of this supremely powerful magnificence, and of Naam Simran of Sat PaarBraham Parmeshar. Apart from this, the entire universe is resounding with the divine words of those beings who – immersed in Bandagi of Sat PaarBraham Parmeshar – are singing His magnificence and performing Naam Simran. Besides these, the entire universe is constantly reverberating with the tunes of the sacred words of all the Sants, Bhagats, Braham Gyanis, SatGurus, Avataars, Gurmukhs, Khalsas, Pirs and Paigambars present in Dargah who are immersed in the magnificence and in Naam Simran of Sat PaarBraham Parmeshar. The whole universe is constantly resonating with all these tunes of the divine magnificence and of Naam Simran of Sat PaarBraham Parmeshar. This divine music of Anhad Shabad is assimilated in the Nirgun Saroop of Akaal Purakh, and it is from within Nirgun Saroop alone that it emanates. This is why this divine music Anhad Shabad is the best form of Amrit, and this is the reason that this divine music makes us experience supreme peace. This divine music alone is the supremely mighty treasure of Anhad Naad. A human being whose Dassam Duaar is ajar comes in direct contact with all nature, with Dargah and with the Nirgun Saroop of Sat PaarBraham Parmeshar. Therefore such great beings whose Dassam Duaar is ajar acquire the Gur Parsaad of Anhad Shabad. Such a supremely powerful divine bliss is acquired only when one finds a “Sat” Guru. SatGuru Sahib Ji has revealed the Katha of this supremely powerful and divine Sat Chit Anand in this Pauri. By finding a “Sat” Guru is meant that when a human being – by virtue of his or her good fortune – comes face-to-face with a Puran Sant SatGuru, and dedicates one’s body, mind and wordldly possessions at SatGuru’s Sat Charans with complete faith, devotion and trust, then the “Sat” Tat (the essence of Sat) of the human being and “Sat” Tat of SatGuru are harmoniously joined together, and by the grace of this harmonious bonding the human being receives Gur Parsaad. With this bonding of the two “Sat” Tat’s, the relationship of SatGuru and Chela (disciple; Suhaagan) is established. That is, with the harmonious bonding of the Sat Tat’s, the Chela (Suhaagan) is born. Thus only by the harmonious bonding between the two Sat Tat’s the human being receives Gur Parsaad. That is, only through the harmonious bond between the two Tat Sat’s a human being attains Suhaag. That is, only by the harmonious bond of the two Sat Tat’s a human being acquires Gur Parsaad of Puran Bandagi. With the acquisition of Gur Parsaad, the human being attains Simran Samadhi and Sunn Samadhi and – vanquishing Maya and accomplishing one’s Bandagi by attaining Puran Sachyari Rehat in one’s Hirda – forever assimilates oneself in Sat PaarBraham Parmeshar. This supremely powerful and divine harmonious bond of SatGuru and Chela alone construes finding of “Sat” Guru. This divine and supremely powerful harmonious bond between SatGuru and Chela alone describes “Darshan Parsan” (“seeing and worshipping”) of SatGuru; the bond through which Chela is transformed into a Suhaagan and attains SatNaam, SatNaam Simran, SatNaam Di Kamai, Puran Bandagi and Seva of Maha Parupkaar. That is to say, gaining this supremely powerful “Darshan Parsan” of SatGuru delivers a human being from the agony of births-and-deaths and the human being becomes Jeevan Mukt. It is this pure and sacred and supremely powerful harmonious bond between SatGuru and Chela that the blessed SatGuru incarnate Amardas Ji describes in this Pauri. A Jeevan Mukt human being attains Sehaj Awastha. By Sehaj Aawastha is meant attainment of Atal Awastha. Sehaj Samadhi is an uninterrupted form of Samadhi. Sehaj Samadhi is the best form of Samadhi. In Sehaj Samadhi the mind of the human being attains complete calmness. That is, the mind is transformed into Jyot. Puran Jyot Parkash manifests itself in one’s Hirda. The complete calmness of mind signifies that the human being has achieved victory over mind. The human being is freed of the slavery of Maya. The human being’s Trishna is quenched, and he or she vanquishes the lust, anger, greed, attachments and pride. Maya turns into his or her servant. Jeevan Mukti is freedom from Maya. Once Trigun Maya is vanquished, the human being arrives at Chautha Pad, obtains Darshan of Akaal Purakh and is endowed with Puran Awastha, Puran Braham Gyan and Atam Ras Amrit. The human being forever becomes one with Akaal Purakh. While in Sehaj Samadhi, all the deeds of the human being are freed of the subservience of mind (slavery of Maya) and are in compliance with Puran Hukam of Dargah. A Jeevan Mukt human being attains the supremely powerful state of Sada Suhaagan. Only such great beings who attain Sehaj Samadhi are bestowed the title of a Puran Sant, SatGuru, Puran Braham Gyani, Puran Khalsa and Gurmukh etc. SatGuru is Apras Aparas (one that is untouched by Maya, and one that can lead us away from Maya). A human being who finds SatGuru is transformed by SatGuru into SatGuru-alike. Once a human being reaches this supremely powerful state, his or her entire time is spent in absolute and supreme Sat Chit Anand – continually absorbed in Puran Sat of the Puran Hukam of Sat PaarBraham. One feels as if the time is passing very rapidly. One is hardly aware of the passage of time while in the state of absolute and supreme spiritual bliss. The mind of such great beings is always in delight. The face of such great beings is always beaming with happiness. The face of such great beings becomes radiant in Dargah. Immense benevolence is showered upon the Sangat of such great beings, and many Jigyasoo’s too attain happiness when they dedicate their body, mind and worldly wealth at the Sat Charans of such great beings and receive Gur Parsaad. Dargah manifests itself in the Sangat of such great beings where Puran Sat is disseminated. Immense delight manifests itself in such a Sangat where Suhaagans engage themselves in SatNaam Simran of Sat PaarBraham Parmeshar and sing praises of His magnificence. When new Suhaagans are born in such a supremely powerful Sangat, their Suhaagan friends feel immense felicitations in their Hirda. There is immense bliss and delight in the entire Sangat, when Suhaagans engage themselves in SatNaam Simran while in Samadhi in Sangat of Puran Sat. Suhaagans are born and manifest themselves in a Sat Sangat which is graced with the presence of a Puran Sant who serves Puran Sat and who bestows Puran Sat upon the Sangat. That is, the immense magnificence of Sat PaarBraham Parmeshar manifests itself in the form of Suhaagans in such a supremely powerful Sangat where Sat is disseminated in the presence of a Puran Sant. In Sat Sangat of such a Puran Sangat – and by grace of Gur Parsaad – the harmonious bonding of the “Sat” Tat’s of man-and-woman (Sat PaarBraham Parmeshar the man and living beings the woman) gives birth to Suhaagans, and the entire Dargah hails and felicitates them. Dargah manifests itself upon earth where Sangat of such a Puran Sant is held. Mansarovar manifests itself upon earth where Sangat of such a Puran Sant takes place. All the Sants, Bhagats, Pirs, Paigambars, SatGurus, Avataars, Gurmukh’s and Khalsa present in Dargah alight upon earth in their Suksham Roop’s and join Suhaagans in SatNaam Simran upon earth, wherever Sangat of such a Puran Sant transpires. Not just this, but even the gods and goddesses arrive and abide wherever such a supremely powerful Sangat takes place. (By the grace of Gur Parsaad and Gur Kirpa, all that Dass wrires has occured, and is occuring, in Dass’s own personal experiences. All that is revealed in GurBani by SatGuru Sahiban is Puran Sat, and has transpired and continues to transpire in Dass’s life. It is by the grace of Gur Kirpa and Gur Parsaad, and under His Puran Hukam, that this Katha is manifesting itself). As a human being obtains Gur Parsaad by “Sat” Guru, a new Suhaagan is born. The Surat of Suhaagan is united with Shabad (GurBani). The Surat of Suhaagan is lit up with SatNaam. The Suhaagan enters the state of Ajapa Jaap (state where Simran carries on without effort on the part of the being). As soon as Suhaagan hears GurBani or Kirtan, Surat of Suhaagan is dran into Shabad, and Suhaagan goes into the state of Samadhi. While in the state of Samadhi, and abiding in SatNaam Simran for a prolonged duration of time, the mind of Suhaagan is thoroughly cleansed. The mind is transformed into Jyot. The Suhaagan attains Sunn Samadhi. The mind and Hirda attain the state of Sunn. The Hirda is lit up with Puran Parkash. All the Bajjar Kapaats are opened up, the seven Sat Sarovars are illuminated, Dassam Duaar becomes ajar, and SatNaam manifests itself in every cell of the body. Anhad Shabad is realized. The human being attains perfect happiness. The human being attains the state of Sat Chit Anand, Sehaj Awastha, Puran Awastha and Atal Awastha. Such is the charming and supremely powerful magnificence that manifests itself when one finds “Sat” Guru. SatGuru the true Patshah Ji describes the state of such immense spiritual bliss in the first Pauri of “Anand Sahib”, and reaffirms the Katha of attaining this very same bliss in the subsequent Pauris.
  3. To maximize the rewards of SIMRAN you must watch your actions and reactions during the day and night. The divine laws laid out by the GURBANI tell you to become a truthful person, to live truthfully, to act and react truthfully, practice truth, abide by truth and serve the truth. All the non-truthful actions-and reactions –ASAT KARAM – are carried under the influence of Five Thieves (PANJ DOOT) : KAAM – Lust, KRODH – Anger, LOBH – Greed, MOH – Selfish Love & Attachments AHANKAAR– Self Pride. These Five Thieves reside inside your body and steal your lifeforce, you inner spiritual energy known as AMRIT. And they steal God’s NAAM the source that generates your inner Amrit. eis dhaehee a(n)dhar pa(n)ch chor vasehikaam krodhh lobh mohu aha(n)kaaraa || Within this body dwell the five thieves: sexual desire, anger, greed, emotional attachment and egotism. a(n)mrith loottehi manamukh neheeboojhehi koe n sunai pookaaraa || They plunder the Amrit Nectar, but the self-willed manmukh does not realize it; no one hears the screams. a(n)dhhaa jagath a(n)dhh varathaaraabaajh guroo gubaaraa ||2|| The world is blind, and its dealings are blind as well; without the Guru, there is only pitch darkness. ||2|| SGGS 600 pa(n)ch chor mil laagae nagareeaa raam naam dhhan hiriaa || The five thieves join together and plunder the body-village, stealing the wealth of the Lord’s Name. SGGS 1178 KAAM Lust, resides in the lower portion of your body around the sexual organs. KRODH Anger resides in the stomach area. LOBH AND MOH reside in the chest-heart area. And AHANKAAR self pride, the biggest enemy, lives in your head and the most difficult to control. A normal person’s daily actions and reactions are controlled by these PANJ DOOTS. The mind of a normal person works under the direct control of PANJ DOOTS. Your past life has a very big influence on how you conduct yourself in your day-to-day activities. And your this life’s character is greatly influenced by all the previous lives. The idea is to get yourself away from the influence of your past life’s and previous lives’ in your daily conduct to be free from the control of the PANJ DOOTS. This is the most difficult task to accomplish, it is easy to do SIMRAN but you need to bring these enemies of yours under your control – pa(n)ch dhooth thudhh vas keethae kaal ka(n)ttak maariaa || Through You, we subdue the five demons of desire, and slay Death, the torturer. SGGS 917 This is how you are going to win over your mind, man jeethae jag jeethiaa jaa(n) thaebikhiaa thae hoe oudhaas ||2|| Conquering the mind, one conquers the world, and then remains detached from corruption. ||2|| SGGS 1103 The most difficult war is to win over these PANJ DOOTS, and how you will accomplish that? 1. AHANKAAR – SELF PRIDE Let us consider the most difficult and the most distracting one first– AHANKAAR self pride. This is the biggest enemy standing in the way of the Human Soul (JEEV ATMA) on its spiritual journey to become a Supreme Soul (PARAM-ATMA). The distance between the PARAM-ATMA and JEEV ATMA is the creation of the man himself due to his ego and pride (HAUME –AHANKAAR). mehalaa 2 || Second Mehl: houmai eaehaa jaath hai houmai karam kamaahi || This is the nature of ego, that people perform their actions in ego. houmai eaeee ba(n)dhhanaa fir fir joneepaahi || This is the bondage of ego, that time and time again, they are reborn. houmai kithhahu oopajai kith sa(n)jam eih jaae || Where does ego come from? How can it be removed? houmai eaeho hukam hai paeiai kirath firaahi || This ego exists by the Lord’s Order; people wander according to their past actions. houmai dheeragh rog hai dhaaroo bhee eis maahi || Ego is a chronic disease, but it contains its own cure as well. kirapaa karae jae aapanee thaa gur kaasabadh kamaahi || If the Lord grants His Grace, one acts according to the Teachings of the Guru’s Shabad. naanak kehai sunahu janahu eith sa(n)jam dhukh jaahi ||2|| Nanak says, listen, people: in this way, troubles depart. ||2|| SGGS 466 vaddeha(n)s mehalaa 3 || Wadahans, Third Mehl: houmai naavai naal virodhh hai dhue n vasehi eik t(h)aae || Ego is opposed to the Name of the Lord; the two do not dwell in the same place. houmai vich saevaa n hovee thaa man birathhaa jaae ||1|| In egotism, selfless service cannot be performed, and so the soul goes unfulfilled. ||1|| har chaeth man maerae thoo gur kaasabadh kamaae || O my mind, think of the Lord, and practice the Word of the Guru’s Shabad. hukam ma(n)nehi thaa har milai thaavichahu houmai jaae || rehaao || If you submit to the Hukam of the Lord’s Command, then you shall meet with the Lord; only then will your ego depart from within. ||Pause|| houmai sabh sareer hai houmai oupath hoe || Egotism is within all bodies; through egotism, we come to be born. houmai vaddaa gubaar hai houmai vich bujh n sakai koe ||2|| Egotism is total darkness; in egotism, no one can understand anything. ||2|| houmai vich bhagath n hovee hukam n bujhiaa jaae || In egotism, devotional worship cannot be performed, and the Hukam of the Lord’s Command cannot be understood. houmai vich jeeo ba(n)dhh hai naam n vasai man aae ||3|| In egotism, the soul is in bondage, and the Naam, the Name of the Lord, does not come to abide in the mind. ||3|| naanak sathagur miliai houmai gee thaasach vasiaa man aae || O Nanak, meeting with the True Guru, egotism is eliminated, and then, the True Lord comes to dwell in the mind|| sach kamaavai sach rehai sachae saev samaae ||4||9||12|| One starts practicing truth, abides in truth and by serving the True One gets absorbed in Him. ||4||9||12|| SGGS 560 One thing more to understand to make it easier to understand is that KRODH anger and AHANKAAR self-pride are complementary to each other. AHANKAAR causes KRODH. KRODH comes because of AHANKAAR. So if you are able to over power AHANKAAR then KRODH will diminish automatically. The opposite of AHANKAAR is the utmost humbleness-NIMRATA, and this is a very powerful weapon to kill AHANKAAR. In order to kill your HAUME EGO try following things: · Cleaning of your kitchen utensils – seva starts from your home. · Cleaning of your family’s shoes – seva starts from serving your own family members first. · Do DANDAOT BANDHNA (prostrating to SGGS) when you go to the gurudwara – KAR DANDAOT PUN WADDA HAI, this produces wonderful results. · Clean langar’s utensils, no match with this seva. · Clean gurudwara. · Dust sangat’s shoes, does wonders. · AND IF YOU REALLY WANT TO EARN IT FAST DUST SANGAT’S SHOES WITH YOUR BEARD OR HAIR (ego women’s pony tail). Believe it, if you do these things you will definitely feel the difference within your self instantaneously. These have been very successfully experienced by this servant (sevak) of yours and some of the other gursikhs known to this sevak. It does wonders, just do it and reap the rewards instantaneously. The more the NIMRATA the more the AMRIT. SAT GURUS were extremely humble – they were servants of Gods servants (DASSAN DAAS). The SUPREME SPIRITUAL STATUS (PARAM PADVI) is to become DASSAN DAAS. So you have to bring this attribute in yourself, you have to become DASSAN DAAS then only the MASTER will be pleased at you. Consider everybody else is higher than you, be they your spouse, son, daughter, father, mother, your subordinate, your servant. You are the lowest of the lowest of the lowest, you have to become so low that you want to be lower than the a worm in manure (BISHTA KA KIDA). This is what DASSAN DAAS is. sagal purakh mehi purakh pradhhaan || Among all persons, the supreme person is the one saadhhasa(n)g jaa kaa mittai abhimaan || who gives up his egotistical pride in the Company of the Holy. aapas ko jo jaanai neechaa || One who sees himself as lowly, sooo ganeeai sabh thae oochaa || shall be accounted as the highest of all. jaa kaa man hoe sagal kee reenaa || One whose mind is the dust of all, har har naam thin ghatt ghatt cheenaa || recognizes the Name of the Lord, Har, Har, in each and every heart. man apunae thae buraa mittaanaa || One who eradicates cruelty from within his own mind, paekhai sagal srisatt saajanaa || looks upon all the world as his friend. sookh dhookh jan sam dhrisattaethaa || One who looks upon pleasure and pain as one and the same, naanak paap pu(n)n nehee laepaa ||6|| O Nanak, is not affected by sin or virtue. ||6|| SGGS 266 2. MOH – SELFISH LOVE AND ATTACHMENT What is the difference between MOH and LOVE? If you love your neighbour’s daughter as much as much as you love your own daughter, then you can say you truly LOVE your daughter free from attachments and expectations. If you love you daughter more than you love any other child than that is MOH – selfish love. MOH is being selfish. When a person only thinks about their blood relations, and don’t care about everybody else. MOH is the root cause of all the family disputes, the very concept of the so called family is due to MOH. mithhiaa than dhhan kutta(n)b sabaaeiaa|| False are body, wealth, and all relations. SGGS 268 The real family is where there is only LOVE and nothing else but pure LOVE for each other. The key is to love all his creations equally, your love for AKAL PURAKH is not a true love if you don’t love all HIS creations as much as you LOVE HIM. You need to develop a SINGLE VISION – EK DRISHT – TO SEE EVERY ONE WITH ONE EYE, ALL ARE EQUAL: sabh eaek dhrisatt samath kar dhaekhaisabh aatham raam pashhaan jeeo || They look upon all with equality, and recognize the Supreme Soul, the Lord, pervading among all. SGGS 446 You need to bring this great attribute in your character, this will inculcate in you the sense of doing good to others, helping the poor, and so on and eventually your heart centre (HIRDEY) will become a philanthropist’s heart (PARUPKARI HIRDEY). It is very difficult to leave your own dear and near family and start caring for others, so how do you accomplish it ? Start from your family. Don’t see them as your family members anymore. See everybody in the family as SANGAT. Now the rules will change, all the rules applicable to the SANGAT will be applied to your family members. Help your family members as you would help the SANGAT with an atitude of service (SEVA BHAVNA). Treat your family members as you would treat the SANGAT. In this way your house will become a DHARAM SHAAL meaning "A PLACE FULL OF LOVE AND SACRIFICE AND SEVA, A GURUDWARA" ghar ghar a(n)dhar dhharamasaal hovaikeerathan sadhaa visoaa|| Everyhome has become a place of religion where God’s praises are always sung. Bhai Gurdas Var 1 This was our GREAT GURU NANAK DEV JI’S dream, don’t you think that will start to come true. This way you will start to realize and see GOD in all your family members. You will stop thinking badly about your family members. The family disputes will start to disappear. Your home will become a real SWEET HOME. This will turn your home into a heaven. If you are the only one on this path, please start following these steps, and others in the family will start to follow you slowly and slowly everybody will become a new person, full of love, sacrifice and seva bhawna. And you will start moving to become EK DRISHT, SINGLE VISION AND LOVE THE ENTIRE UNIVERSE, and on a path of PARUPKAR. Again believe it, and do it, it works, it has worked in our families, it will work in your family as well. 3. LOBH – GREED The next enemy in the hierarchy is LOBH – GREED to own and possess everything. There is a part of the human brain that contains a reptilians brain. That reptillian brain in us creates the "grab and run" mentality. MAYA is the evil behind the greedy nature of a man. Man wants to become rich by hook or crook, adopting bad or good means, bribery, dishonesty, cheating, hiding, lying, killing and all kind of bad deeds. MAYA makes a man do all unimaginably bad acts to make him rich. Has anybody taken any MAYA along with him when he died ? No. Then why do we all run after MAYA? Because this is another one of the PANJ DOOTS, that stands in the way in the path to spirituality. So how do we get a control over this evil force of MAYA? With Truth and Contentment (SAT SANTOKH). thhaal vich thi(n)n vasathoo peeou sath sa(n)thokh veechaaro || Upon this Plate, three things have been placed: (SAT SANTOKH) Truth Contentment and Contemplation. SGGS 1429 SAT SANTOKH is the strongest weapon that will kill all urges to make MAYA by bad means. The only good way to do so is by a honest job. Be contented with what you have. Never long for more, whatever is in store for you will automatically come to you, just be truthful and honest in your day today actions and while doing your job, use good means to advance your career goals, HE will surely help you. Give DASWANDH – one tenth of your earnings to your Guru, Gurudwara or donate to the poor people, to the homeless, feed the birds and animals, to the sick people, orphans, and other needy people. Giving DASWANDH is mandatory, it is the DIVINE LAW, if you want to get a control over MAYA then you have to do it: than man dhhan sabh soup gur ko hukam ma(n)niai paaeeai || Surrender body, mind, wealth, and everything to the Guru; obey the Order of His Will, and you will find Him. SGGS 918 If you really want to do it fast (and you have never given daswand before) then CALCULATE YOUR NET WORTH AND DONATE ONE TENTH OF THE NET WORTH FOR A WORTHY CAUSE. The MAYA will start serving you instead of you running after MAYA. The greed will disappear and you will always be in SAT SANTOKH. 4. KAAM- the sexual desire, lust. The next enemy is the KAAM- the sexual desire, lust. As long as sexual activity and thoughts are limited to your spouse it is not considered to be spiritually damaging. However as soon as you step out of that boundary, then you have been overpowered by this big enemy of yours. This kind of a desire is very deadly and NAAM doesn’t work with it. Instead of seeing others as potential sex partners, see them as a sister, daughter a mother or brother, father and son. par thria roop n paekhai naethr || (The saint is the one) whose eyes do not gaze upon the beauty of others’ wives SGGS 274 akhee soothak vaekhanaa par thria par dhhan roop || The impurity of the eyes is to gaze upon the beauty of another man’s wife, and his wealth. SGGS 472 This one is not as hard to control, call every woman you meet or see as bhehn ji, mata ji, or beti. If you get a lousy feeling, a lustful feeling in your inside when you see some body else, then look at her feet, say SAT NAAM WAHEGURU FIVE TIMES, bow to her her and ask her for her forgiveness inside your heart. Accept your misdeed right away and you will be pardoned by the GOD. Slowly and slowly you will start to realize and feel the difference in your attitude, and your vision will change, you will start to realize they are your sisters, mothers and daughters. In spite of your best efforts, there is always a strong possibility of you being hit by one or more of these BIG FIVE ENEMIES of yours every now and then, so what do you do to encounter them: THE STRONGEST WEAPON IS – "SAT NAAM WAHE GURU", SO SAY "SAT NAAM WAHE GURU" FIVE TIMES, THIS WILL CRUSH THE HEAD OF YOUR ENEMY RIGHT AWAY and you will be relieved of that moment. The next thing is for keeping your accounts of good and bad actions (CHITER GUPT) clean all the time we will request you to perform the following ardaas as many time as many you can during the day and night: AASI BEANT PAAPI HAAN, PAKHANDI HAAN, KAAMI HAAN, KRODHI HAAN, LOBHI HAAN, MOHI HAAN, AHANKAARI HAAN, we accept all our mis deeds-GUNAH, AASI GUNEH GAAR HAAN KOOD KAPTI HAAN, LOON HARAMI HAAN, KIRPA KAR KE SANOO BAKHASH DEY. “I am an endless sinner. A hypocrite. Lustful. Angry. Greedy. Attached and proud. I accept all my misdeeds. I am a great offender. Full of falseness and take what belongs to others. O Lord show your mercy and kindness and please forgive me.” This is basically accepting all your mis deeds, an open confession to confess all your sins, and once you confess them your sins are pardoned by HIM, since he is very very kind. Believe in it, it does work and it works great, repeat it every 10-15 minutes during the day at least. Slowly and slowly when you start to have control on these five enemies, your frequency of this ardaas will automatically go down, and eventually it will be reduced to almost none, when you will become completely truthful person. If you really want to do it the fast way then standup in the full congregation and accept all your misdeeds. Repeat the above prayer, it will do wonders to you, you will just be cleaned very quickly from inside, if you do it repeatedly in SANGAT then the result will be unbelievable, so beloved ones of the Guru (Guru Ke Pyareo), pick up your courage and do it, it will boost your spirituality at a supersonic speed.

    The British had nefarious designs for the Sikhs. They had intended to make Sree Darbaar Sahib the main Diocese for the Christian Church and convert the complex into a giant church. Crucifixes were even put near the entrance of Sree Darbaar Sahib near the foot-wash area.

From woman, man is born; within woman, man is conceived; to woman he is engaged and married. ਭੰਡਹੁ ਹੋਵੈ ਦੋਸਤੀ ਭੰਡਹੁ ਚਲੈ ਰਾਹੁ ॥ भंडहु होवै दोसती भंडहु चलै राहु ॥ Bẖandahu hovai ḏosṯī bẖandahu cẖalai rāhu. Woman becomes his friend; through woman, the future generations come. ਭੰਡੁ ਮੁਆ ਭੰਡੁ ਭਾਲੀਐ ਭੰਡਿ ਹੋਵੈ ਬੰਧਾਨੁ ॥ भंडु मुआ भंडु भालीऐ भंडि होवै बंधानु ॥ Bẖand mu▫ā bẖand bẖālī▫ai bẖand hovai banḏẖān. When his woman dies, he seeks another woman; to woman he is bound. ਸੋ ਕਿਉ ਮੰਦਾ ਆਖੀਐ ਜਿਤੁ ਜੰਮਹਿ ਰਾਜਾਨ ॥ सो किउ मंदा आखीऐ जितु जमहि राजान ॥ So ki▫o manḏā ākẖī▫ai jiṯ jamėh rājān. So why call her bad?

  10. What's the name of the book?
  11. This is a video of Principal Balbir Singh M.A. (USA) sharing his eyewitness accounts of holy bachans stated by Baba Nand Singh Ji and Baba Isher Singh Ji, both of Nanaksar-Kaleran. These bachans were heard from the late 1930's through to 1963
  12. I want to see what the sangats opinion of this idea We should do interview and documentary on Baba Jaswant Singh ji Daudhar Wale, who lives in Canada. Baba ji has served taksal since 1961. He is the one who recorded the entire katha of Baba Gurbachan Singh Ji Bindranwale. I'm sure he is full of stories of Sants and incidents that we could learn from. Baba ji joined taksal in 1961, think of all the puratan sants baba ji met and the stories he heard. We would get a glimpse into the past and ask him questions of what the panth is going through and ask if any mahapursh told the answer to modern day problems. It will be good to document baba jis life for the future. The panth needs to document and interview the Sants who are in their 70s 80s. Think about the videos we have of the diwans of Sant isher Singh ji, how one persons decision to record them have given us a window to the past, I hope we can do the same for future Sikhs.
  13. What is the oldest recorded katha or keertan we have in audio or video? It will be great if we can make a collection of these.

    The earliest kathas are from the 1950s.
