  1. whatever name that you're japping. We didn't go in depth into this topic, he just said don't get focused on anhad shabad, go past it. i (personal view) see it as a helper. listening to it pulls your surti out from the world so you can more easily focus on naam. But if you are already focused than its fine to completely ignore it and focus on naam.
  2. Anhad Shabad helps bring our surti inward. However, Sant Jagjit Singh ji says Andhad shabad is NOT Naam. Keep the main focus on Naam.
  3. anyone do sangat of sant manjit singh ji? what are they like?
  4. sometimes people have a lot of anxiety issues and that manifests as muscular tension. The solution is exercise and breathing through your perineum area. Breathing through your pelvic floor is a more natural way of breathing and may make swas swas simran much easier to do as well as lessen anxiety.
  5. I think it's mostly a waste of time to read tons of websites. The best is to learn directly from the immensely spiritually elevated people of our own dharm b/c sometimes those of other dharms will do things differently. This can cause dubida (doubts) and confusion. Ojas rises when we do sangat bhagti sangat seva and sangat. Avoid vikaars nindya backbiting etc. As we tyag (internally let go of ) kaamic thoughts only then will it rise. Otherwise that sexual energy stays as kaam. In a nutshell, it's a simple matter of doing the right thing long enough and avoiding the wrong thing long enough and lots of satsangat. I emphasize satsangat so much b/c their energy helps an incredible amount, speaking from my experience. In comparing my rate of advancement before I started doing regular satsangat vs. back when I did more bhagti at home it is a truly immense eye-opening difference. And it's owed all to satsangat.
  6. From my own experience I have revealed some slight element of my spiritual state to a class of youth. I originally told them in a roundabout way about parkash they can receive when doing simran without mentioning my own name. They asked me if I saw it as well. I avoided the question b/c I didn't want to disclose it... they asked again and I said yes. And after that I felt that I lost much of the prakash. The moral of the story is never ever reveal your spiritual kirpa to anyone who is skeptical of you. If they won't believe you you can suffer a loss. However, if they will believe you it can be a big punn. When in doubt, don't reveal it. This is my own very bitter experience. To reveal it to someone more advanced is fine if we need to discuss to ask them questions. But the danger comes when we reveal it to nastik people, or people who have doubts.
  7. Gyani Thakur Singh ji has some great katha. I particularly love the examples from the lives of abhyassee's that he gives. However, he is not at the highest level of gian, he does not know everything. As such, we should not take what he says as 100% absolute truth no matter what. We should also beware of nindya, for he has done a lot of sewa and simran in his life.
  8. A friend of mine just met with Sant Jagjit Singh ji Harkhowalwale. He said it's okay to do paath of these kinds of Banis but don't do lots of repetitions without the appropriate viddhi. There is special viddhi for Brahm Kavach or Chandi di Var if your going to be doing tons of abhyaas of these. It's not for everyone. So speak to proper Mahapurkh before you start doing lots. These Banian are different than our regular nitnem Banis, the maryada for doing lots of abhyaas is much more sukt. He mentioned, for example, that a singh came to him who had done chalisa of Chandi di Vaar without the appropriate viddhi. After about 20 days he came to see Baba ji b/c blood had started coming out of his stool, his nose, his mouth... There is a right way to go about doing these things so you should speak to a mahapurkh before beginning.

  10. If you are trying to make a mantar sidh that is from certain sukt Banis such as Bhram Kavich or Chandi di Var, please see the warning from Sant Jagjit Singh ji here:
  11. You need to speak to gyaani Mahapursh before proceeding. See the warning here:

  13. it's not only physical celibacy, but celibacy of the mind along with redirection of this powerful energy into Naam. This transforms the consciousness and greatly increases the speed at which you move into a state of higher consciousness. Note that this is different than normal worldy intellect. This is a more refined, spiritual intellect. Although I'm certain that the same thing can be used to power an increase in worldly intellect as well.
  14. you need to massage oil onto your scalp. the top of the head, temples, and top back area of the head. any oil is okay, almond oil is pretty good to use. you can also put a bit of oil in your belly button and nostrils if you want.
  15. Jojoba oil seems to smell nice. pricey though.
  16. I asked Gyani Thakur Singh ji this. He told me that Baba Harnam Singh ji did a massive amount of seva of the udassee sant mentioned at the beginning of the book. That sant didn't give him anything. So even though he didn't follow any sant after he broke with the udassee sant (after that sant wanted him to leave the way of the Khalsa), he still got the phall of doing sewa of a sant. As for Sant Attar Singh ji, I'm certain you could find the lineage previous to him if you search. For more on what Gurbani states is the role of sants see https://khojee.wordpress.com/category/role-of-sants/
  17. I would always keep Bani playing if I could, even if there is nobody around to here. You don't know if there aren't roohan that you can't see listening. Bhagat ji promotes having Bani on all the time, even if you're doing stuff. This helps a lot on the spiritual path. But obviously not the same as doing paath with focus.
  18. This. This needs to be shared with anyone who walks this path and runs into strange experiences, unexpected changes etc. etc. etc. If you're not sure if your experience is normal, THIS needs to be listened to.
  19. In the Sikh dharm there are many realised sants. However, in this dharm there role is more to help join you with the powerhouse of Gurbani b/c any living master, no matter how realized, will eventually leave their body while Guru Granth Sahib ji will remain.
  20. http://asiasamachar.com/2018/04/12/18692/ good opinion piece http://www.gurmatparchar.com/#/nanak-shah-fakir-review/4589118383 a review by pracharak Sukhjeevan Singh
  21. tons of studies on various kinds of meditation, all applicable to naam simran.
  22. Does anybody know of any sants who go to this area? I don't. Generally when you regularly go to the larger Sikh temples once in a while a sant will come to visit. You can then ask them for help. If I were in your shoes I wouldn't worry and just keep doing bhagti in the meantime.
  23. Just the DDT style. Punjabi University of Patiala models their Punjabi and their attempts to standardize Punjabi on Taksal's santhya b/c they feel that the Taksal has preserved the original language best.
  24. I don't know what it is. But I'll tell you the general principle for all meditation. Just keep focused on the meditation and let whatever sensations / experiences you have be. They will come, whatever is gonna happen will happen, and then they will go. I have found that the the body has energy channels which have blockages, these blockages become opened up *automatically* during meditation. During the process of them opening up, we experience sensations. But these sensations are not the goal of the path, but rather side effects of unblocking. Hence the instruction to stay focused on your meditation. Generally, my feeling is if something happens that might be a health issue we should get it checked out. In kaljug most people don't have a great avastha so stuff that comes up is usually health related rather than spiritual advancement. BUT, keep in mind that sometimes disease is buried deep, and as our body gets cleaned out, we experience colds etc which is garbage coming out of the body. So it's actually a good thing. Finally, if you still are unsure, go meet a sant. The internet cannot give you an accurate diagnosis but a sant who has a high avastha can probably help guide you further as needed. If you let us know which city you live near, we might be able to guide you to a sant.
  25. All sorts of different sensations will be felt at different times as the body and mind become purified. Totally normal. Best to keep focus on naam and just enjoy.
