  1. from a list of zen koans found here:https://www.huffingtonpost.ca/entry/zen-buddhism-koan_us_563251dce4b0631799115f3c When asked why he practiced zen, the student said, “Because I intend to become a Buddha.”His teacher picked up a brick and started polishing it. The student asked “What are you doing?” The teacher replied, “I am trying to make a mirror.”“How can you make a mirror by polishing a brick?”“How can you become Buddha by doing zazen? If you understand sitting Zen, you will know that Zen is not about sitting or lying down. If you want to learn sitting Buddha, know that sitting Buddha is without any fixed form. Do not use discrimination in the non-abiding dharma. If you practice sitting as Buddha, you must kill Buddha. If you are attached to the sitting form, you are not yet mastering the essential principle.”The student heard this admonition and felt as if he had tasted sweet nectar. I think this also has to do with advising not to attach yourself to any experience in practice,like tasting sweet nectar.I think another part has to do with ego (this student trying to be Buddha).Trying to be something less than what we already are.We should instead focus on moving to that self realization that we are everything when I means nothing.
  2. Thank you guys sincerely, I will try ardaas and sleeping earlier, and eating a lighter dinner.
  3. I was in a smiliar situation with waking up at amritvela. It was going smoothly for a month and a half, but one day my mind started getting lazy. 5 minutes more in bed. I would get up most times after 5 mins, but I was losing discipline. One day, I just slept, didn't rise at amritvela. After that my routine broke and I haven't been able to wake up at amritvela for the past few months. I think it was a grace period with maharaj ji doing kirpa on my lazy unworthy self. I am trying to get back on track, so please help me too if you or the sangat find anything.
  4. Listen to this katha series about vaade sahibzade shaheedi if you have not already.
  5. https://www.consciouslifestylemag.com/pineal-gland-activation-third-eye/ The article covers a lot of topics
  6. It is good advice. The guy talks some sense, my chem teacher respects this guy a lot. But on another note, doesn't this guy sound like the guy from sesame street.

  9. I think sharda is really important in determining how effective the jaap is
  10. Is pratakal the same as amritvela or like near sunrise
  11. Also should the jaap be done out loud or can we quietly do it
