  1. Waheguru Ji With Guru Sahib's grace, during simran abhyaas, I can hear very strong/load buzzing sounds and I feel like going through a tunnel in between my eyes. Some sort of images start to form but as soon as that happens, I kind of lose my concentration and get a feeling of coming back to my body. I try to concentrate on naam dhun, however in those loud buzzing sounds it becomes hard. Duration of those buzzing sounds is gradually increasing over days. Please share your views and experiences. Waheguru.
  2. I recently started doing Simran with a small sangat. Sometimes it's one of my buddies, sometimes a handful. I know your not supposed to share with anybody but with guru maharaj di kirpa I had a sneak peek of what anand is, and I am now striving towards becoming amritdhari. This experience took place before I ever started doing Simran or going to the gurdwara willingly. Now for my question. When I am deep into Simran/ meditation and really feel like I'm progressing, sometimes one of my eyes starts to open sometimes and slowly both of em. Would it help if I used a blind fold to keep them closed, because I feel like it's a huge distraction when start focusing on my open eyes. Thanks
  3. WJKK WJKF First of all I'd like everyone to know that I'm a Mona singh and I love doing simran. I've always had questions about life growing up and when I started learning more about Sikhi slowly my answers started getting answered! But I have this one question to ask all of beautiful Sikhs on here! It's that everyday I wake up my thirst for God and Naam simran is growing like I can't even focus on anything else in my life from the time I get up at amritvela to the next amritvela I'm so intriguied by God and by the bliss I receive from naam. I'm starting to think this lifes a game/movie and only way to win is do as much simran as you can! But then my peers are achieving alot in the Maya duniya that I'm getting confused and I don't know what to do! Should I find a balance and am I blessed to thinking of God like this day and night!?? Thanks in advance!
  4. So recently I found out I have anterior pelvic tilt. It's a very noticeable curve in the lower back area. The main cause is usually sitting, poor posture etc. I want to fix this because it leads to occasional lower back pain. It does not lead to pain often but it will most likely get worse over time. I have decided I want to start yoga to correct it. Does anyone have anything in mind? I've heard yoga can help spirituality as well, so are there any types of yoga that could aid spirituality while correcting the posture problem? My other question from this is what are the spiritual benefits of posture type yoga's? How do they work internally? I've had this question for a while.
  5. Does Naam simran/meditation lead us to our subconscious mind/soul? Are they both the same?

  11. In Memory of Shahibzadey Shaheedi, Naam Simran Smagam is happening at Darbar Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji, Walsall, West-Midlands. Sangat Ji, We are fast approaching the 'festive season' again this year, but what does this time of the year really mean for Sikhs? This is the time of the year that one of the biggest sacrifices in history was given by our father Dhan Guru Gobind Singh Ji Maharaj. In the month of Poh Maharaj sacrificed his four sons, his mother and countless Sikhs in the name of dharam. This was the fulfilment of a promise Guru Gobind Singh Ji made in 1699 when he, as Guru, knelt down in front of the Panj Pyaare and begged them for the gift of Amrit. The Panj asked Guru Sahib what he will give to receive this Amrit and Maharaj said they will sacrifice their entire family to get this divine gift. In memory of this Baljit Singh will be doing a daily katha over 13 Days telling the full story. This is part of the Naam Simran Smagam being held at the Gurdwara. Full details are below please be sure to attend! 19th December to 31st December. Daily smagam program: morning Simran 5am-6am & evening simran 7am-8pm 13 Larivaar Shaheedi Katha 8pm-8.30pm Darbar Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji, Rollingmill Street, Walsall, WS2 9EQ Maharaj has given and today continues to give so much for us, this time of year is a perfect time for us all to reflect on what we have really sacrificed to Maharaj. Please make effort to attend and share with others, it is so important that we all know about this chapter in our history!
  12. **Taken from www.sabh13.com** Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa, Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh Jio, A Sikh once approached Sant Baba Isher Singh Ji Maharaj at Karamsar, Rara Sahib and asked Sant Ji, what must be done to acquire just one of the many 'Ridhiya Sidhiya' (spiritual powers). Sant Ji Maharaj with devotees Sant Ji answered that "One must do Seva (self-less service) in the Langar (free community kitchen for the congregation) for 40 days". The Sikh replied with "What? Are you sure? Is that it? That doesn't seem difficult!" However, Sant Ji replied "Hold on, listen to the full answer before you start making assumptions, one must do seva in the Langar, and consider all those that eat as though they were the first Sikh Guru, Guru Nanak Dev Ji Maharaj." The Sikh replied, "How so?" Sant Ji explained, "When serving an individual, when picking up their dishes, when cleaning their dishes, you must do it with so much love and devotion as though, you were serving Guru Nanak Dev Ji Maharaj" The Sikh accepted this and in his mind considered this task to not be so difficult. If one goes to Karamsar, Rara Sahib, even today the Sangat (congregation), eat Langar in the masses and it's not an exaggeration to say that they are 100-150 members of the Sangat eating at one time. Sant Ji gave a command to the Sevadaars (volunteers) at Rara Sahib to always have Langar ready for 200 members of sangat at all times. The Sikh began his Seva within the Langar and served the Sangat with as much devotion as possible. He began to closely observe how people were eating. He watched how people were spilling their drinks and food upon themselves and on the floor whilst eating (as per normal in most Langar's) and immediately began to get doubts in the bachan (holy words) of Sant Ji. In his mind he was saying "These are the people who Sant Ji considers Guru Nanak Dev Ji Maharaj? They don't even know how to eat their food, let alone anything else!" However he remained quiet and didn't respond in the attempt to fulfil his hunger for spiritual powers. On the 8th day, a fellow Sikh was eating in the Langar and had an excessive amount of Rotiya (chappatti bread). The Sikh who was following the bachan of Sant Ji had not responded to any of the behaviour he had seen until now, until the fellow Sikh asked for yet another Roti. The Sikh got very angry and disgusted at the fact that this fellow Sikh had eaten so much already and was asking for more! He then replied in a rude manner "Look how much you've had to eat already, you don't need anymore!" Sant Ji was standing behind and began to laugh. "O Sikh, you've fallen already? It's only been 8 days! You've yet 32 days to go!" The Sikh realised his mistake and apologised to Sant Ji for not being able to follow their bachan. I'm sure reading these posts upon this blog, people will draw their own conclusions/morals and perhaps some people will learn more from this story then myself. However, in my humble opinion, I think the moral of this story is, that doing Seva is and especially regarding the Sangat as though they are Guru Nanak Dev Ji Maharaj is a very hard task, which we sometimes take for granted. We will surely get kamaiee (spiritual wealth) for doing Seva, but we will get double kamaiee if we do Seva with love and devotion! Sant Baba Isher Singh Ji Maharaj gave bachan after this whole episode, that doing seva in the Langar for 40 days, and considering everyone as though they are Guru Nanak Dev Ji Maharaj is the equivalent to doing 12 years of bhagti (mediation)! Maharaj didn't say for no reason that ਖੰਨਿਅਹੁ ਤਿਖੀ ਵਾਲਹੁ ਨਿਕੀ ਏਤੁ ਮਾਰਗਿ ਜਾਣਾ || The path they take is sharper than a two-edged sword, and finer than a hair. The path of Sikhi and it's lifestyle is very hard to commit to! It's easy to wear a chola, to tie a dastar, however it's very difficult to do Naam, Baani and Seva. The closer one gets to the Guru, the more tests the Guru poses to test the love and devotion of his beloved Sikhs. As Sikhs of Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji Maharaj, it should be our daily Ardas, to pray that Maharaj blesses us with Sikhi, day in day out. Please forgive sevadaars, if we have made any mistakes whilst narrating this story. Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa, Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh Jio,

He made the breath of life the watchman, with lock and key to protect it; the Creator did this in no time at all. Ab man jāgaṯ rahu re bẖā▫ī. Keep your mind awake and aware now, O Sibling of Destiny. Gāfal ho▫e kai janam gavā▫i▫o cẖor musai gẖar jā▫ī. You were careless, and you have wasted your life; your home is being plundered by thieves. ||1||Pause|| Pancẖ pahrū▫ā ḏar mėh rahṯe ṯin kā nahī paṯī▫ārā. The five senses stand as guards at the gate, but now can they be trusted? Cẖeṯ sucẖeṯ cẖiṯ ho▫e rahu ṯa▫o lai pargās ujārā. When you are conscious in your consciousness, you shall be enlightened and illuminated. Na▫o gẖar ḏekẖ jo kāman bẖūlī basaṯ anūp na pā▫ī.

Says Kabeer, the nine openings of the body are being plundered; rise up to the Tenth Gate, and discover the true essence. SGGS 339 Har har akẖar ḏu▫e ih mālā. These two words, Har, Har, make up my maalaa. SGGS 388 Gur mil jīṯā har har kīṯā ṯūtī bẖīṯā bẖaram gaṛā. Meeting the Guru, I am victorious; praising the Lord, Har, Har, the walls of the fortress of doubt have been destroyed. SGGS 453 Kabeer, it does make a difference, how you chant the Lord's Name, 'Raam'. This is something to consider Everyone uses the same word for the son of Dasrath and the Wondrous Lord. ANG 1374 Says Kabeer, chant the two letters of the Lord's Name - Raa Maa. If He is your Lord and Master, He will protect you ANG 329 In the same way, Gurmantra/GurShabad is to be chanted Wahe. Guru. If you look at Sufi Zikr they chant Allah. Hu. Kar kirpā jis āpnai nām lā▫e. Those whom the Lord mercifully attaches to His Naam - Nānak cẖa▫uthe paḏ mėh so jan gaṯ pā▫e. O Nanak, in the fourth state, those humble servants attain salvation. Please forgive me for any mistakes. WJKK WJKF
