Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh Daas was thinking for a few days now about if someone on this forum site has had any experience with there soul leaving the body and travelling whilst sitting in samadhi with eyes closed. Daas read in Sant Baba Harnam Singh Ji Rampurkhera Wale jeevani that it can happen as Baba Ji were a puran mahapursh. As Daas has seen topics written on Anhad Shabad,Dasam Daur etc it would be interesting to mention this as real life experience would be great to hear like fellow site veers as @DeNiro @Lucky @Sat1176 @ragnarok Here is a mention of the two saakhis about Baba Ji of how they travelled with their aatma soul and a list of books mentioned where a yogi is mentioned who actually did vist a city whilst sitting in samadhi. Also Bhai Sahib Bhai Veer Singh Ji wrote in Uchay Khandaan De Kautak” (Miracles of higher dimensions), Pyaray da Pyara (Lover’s lover) and Raja Shiv Nabh Singh about these happenings.

I got to know something related to DMT. It is a psychoactive chemical compound found in some plants. Large number of people believe it has divine powers, that’s why it lets people enter other dimensions (I don’t know what dimensions, maybe Astral Plane). I read somewhere that during the actual death experience, DMT is released in the brain too (near penial gland), so they get the similar experiences but don’t gain consciousness of this physical body again, and are dead. There are meditation techniques like the Surat Shabd Yoga, in which we have to put our attention at the centre of our head, where there is penial gland. I was guessing maybe we’re able to trigger the release of DMT by putting our attention there and have spiritual experiences. So is there any connection between DMT and spirituality? Note: I don’t support consumption of any of these psychoactive drugs.
After seeing some discussions on the other threads about atma, soul and God within us and God in Gurus, maybe some further discussion is helpful. Kabirji says the same thing about how we rant on and on about our Mind and soul, whilst at the same time using this mind's intellect in doing so! ਜੀਉ ਏਕੁ ਅਰੁ ਸਗਲ ਸਰੀਰਾ ॥ Jī▫o ek ar sagal sarīrā. There is One Soul, and it pervades all bodies. ਇਸੁ ਮਨ ਕਉ ਰਵਿ ਰਹੇ ਕਬੀਰਾ ॥੯॥੧॥੩੬॥ Is man ka▫o rav rahe kabīrā. ||9||1||36|| Kabeer dwells upon this Mind. ||9||1||36|| Jio/atma/soul/ are the same thing. These last pangtis (the jio ek ar sagal sareera) come after a number that are contemplating the MIND and questioning the mann. they say........ ਸਨਕਾਦਿਕ ਨਾਰਦ ਮੁਨਿ ਸੇਖਾ ॥ Sankāḏik nāraḏ mun sekẖā. Even sages like Sanak and Naarad, and the thousand-headed serpent, ਤਿਨ ਭੀ ਤਨ ਮਹਿ ਮਨੁ ਨਹੀ ਪੇਖਾ ॥੩॥ Ŧin bẖī ṯan mėh man nahī pekẖā. ||3|| did not see the mind within the body. ||3|| ਇਸੁ ਮਨ ਕਉ ਕੋਈ ਖੋਜਹੁ ਭਾਈ ॥ Is man ka▫o ko▫ī kẖojahu bẖā▫ī. Anyone can search for this mind, O Siblings of Destiny. ਤਨ ਛੂਟੇ ਮਨੁ ਕਹਾ ਸਮਾਈ ॥੪॥ Ŧan cẖẖūte man kahā samā▫ī. ||4|| When it escapes from the body, where does the mind go? ||4|| ਗੁਰ ਪਰਸਾਦੀ ਜੈਦੇਉ ਨਾਮਾਂ ॥ Gur parsādī jaiḏe▫o nāmāŉ. By Guru's Grace, Jai Dayv and Naam Dayv ਭਗਤਿ ਕੈ ਪ੍ਰੇਮਿ ਇਨ ਹੀ ਹੈ ਜਾਨਾਂ ॥੫॥ Bẖagaṯ kai parem in hī hai jānāŉ. ||5|| came to know this, through loving devotional worship of the Lord. ||5|| ਇਸੁ ਮਨ ਕਉ ਨਹੀ ਆਵਨ ਜਾਨਾ ॥ Is man ka▫o nahī āvan jānā. This mind does not come or go. ਜਿਸ ਕਾ ਭਰਮੁ ਗਇਆ ਤਿਨਿ ਸਾਚੁ ਪਛਾਨਾ ॥੬॥ Jis kā bẖaram ga▫i▫ā ṯin sācẖ pacẖẖānā. ||6|| One whose doubt is dispelled, knows the Truth. ||6|| ਇਸੁ ਮਨ ਕਉ ਰੂਪੁ ਨ ਰੇਖਿਆ ਕਾਈ ॥ Is man ka▫o rūp na rekẖ▫i▫ā kā▫ī. This mind has no form or outline. ਹੁਕਮੇ ਹੋਇਆ ਹੁਕਮੁ ਬੂਝਿ ਸਮਾਈ ॥੭॥ Hukme ho▫i▫ā hukam būjẖ samā▫ī. ||7|| By God's Command it was created; understanding God's Command, it will be absorbed into Him again. ||7|| ਇਸ ਮਨ ਕਾ ਕੋਈ ਜਾਨੈ ਭੇਉ ॥ Is man kā ko▫ī jānai bẖe▫o. Does anyone know the secret of this mind? ਇਹ ਮਨਿ ਲੀਣ ਭਏ ਸੁਖਦੇਉ ॥੮॥ Ih man līṇ bẖa▫e sukẖ▫ḏe▫o. ||8|| This mind shall merge into the Lord, the Giver of peace and pleasure. ||8|| Kabirji is talking about the mind He is saying "jio ek sagal sareera" because of what we do with our MIND.... You see we all say there is One God, Christians say it, jews say it, muslims say it.... The whole world around Kabirji is talking about the ONE God....just like they do today....but that's it...All talk , chatter,... discuss..but no real uddam or efforts to find Him. All using their Mind's intellect to discuss the ONE parbrahm.......he is everywhere, in everything...but that's it !......how about experiencing ? Remember that in gurbani it also mentions a few times....we are like different pots of clay with the same water inside.......just differently decorated on the outside but the inside has the same jal ....yet our mind's attach that same Water/Ji/ God/atma soul to the body and repeatedly discuss...discuss.... and wonder where is mind from, where does it go......etc... In light of this, Kabirji is telling us 'WAKE UP'' because that same God-soul/water is right inside you. No good just discussing....Do bhakti and GO WITHIN, find him right inside yourself. We can carry on discussing until life end, but it is NO USE unless you make the effort to find that SAME God-soul that is INSIDE ALL of us. God SOUL is very close and within us but by going around discussing and doing Mann vichaar of saying "Yes of course God is inside all of us" we are attaching and associating the Mind to the outer maya with discussions....which leads to EGO. ...We have to find ways of dissociating with this instead. By associating we make a distinctive line showing MIND is separate from ATMA,,,and this makes the duality....the same Ego. Simply put ,GOD + EGO= us individuals...manukhs,.. the pots with the water If You go WITHIN and start doing bakti, then slowly you will start to merge bit by bit and in doing so, begin to shed that EGO, layer by layer.. then in simple math......... GOD - (minus) EGO = God, pure atma, sachkhand...where no ego or identity of mind remains. The mind is jyot saroop. I said above that Kabirji's "Ji-o ek sagal sarira" is a WAKE-UP to us since, he is saying Kao-rav rahe..to dwell upon this Ji-o Ik in our body, rather than discussing the mind as in the prior pangtis. ਜੀਉ ਏਕੁ ਅਰੁ ਸਗਲ ਸਰੀਰਾ ॥ Jī▫o ek ar sagal sarīrā. There is One Soul, and it pervades all bodies. ਇਸੁ ਮਨ ਕਉ ਰਵਿ ਰਹੇ ਕਬੀਰਾ ॥੯॥੧॥੩੬॥ Is man ka▫o rav rahe kabīrā. ||9||1||36|| Kabeer dwells upon this Mind. ||9||1||36|| With regards to this wake up, he finishes the shabad on this line and continues with raag gwaarayree with... ਗਉੜੀ ਗੁਆਰੇਰੀ ॥ Gauree Gwaarayree: ਅਹਿਨਿਸਿ ਏਕ ਨਾਮ ਜੋ ਜਾਗੇ ॥ Ahinis ek nām jo jāge. Those who are awake to the One Name, day and night - ਕੇਤਕ ਸਿਧ ਭਏ ਲਿਵ ਲਾਗੇ ॥੧॥ ਰਹਾਉ ॥ Keṯak siḏẖ bẖa▫e liv lāge. ||1|| rahā▫o. many of them have become Siddhas - perfect spiritual beings - with their consciousness attuned to the Lord. ||1||Pause|| How are they awake ?? don't their bodies sleep ??.. Yes, the bodies sleep, but the water inside the pot is always jagat, The Atma soul is untouchable and remains the active force of the universe, no matter what it is cased in. They have merged their Mann Chit - mind consciousness with the EK Atma-soul inside them. And How would they do that ? answer - Bhakti, just like perfect siddhas.
