Question 10: Sachay Patshah, why do  You throughout the Bani emphasize  only on Nam Bhakti as per means of true devotion?

Guru Jee:   ਕਹਤੁ ਕਬੀਰ ਨਵੈ ਘਰ ਮੂਸੇ ਦਸਵੈਂ ਤਤੁ ਸਮਾਈ ॥੩॥੨੨॥੭੩॥

Kehath Kabeer Navai Ghar Moosae Dhasavain Thath Samaaee ||3||22||73||

Says Kabeer, the nine openings of the body are being plundered; rise up to the Tenth Gate, and discover the True essence. 

 

Here,  what Guru Jee is trying to tell us, is that, the object of whatever efforts of ours as per means of bhakti, is to take us nearer to the True essence, or essence of Spirituality.

And as seen in His words, He says that, that essence of Truth lies in the Tenth Gate, means above the other nine gates or portals, such as : 2 eyes, 2 ears, 2 nostrils, 1 mouth and 2 lower apertures, through which our attention is scattered in the mayavee creation.

So as long our attention does not approach towards  that essence of Truth, which lies above the eyes  at the center of our head, we are much far away from our objective, thus, no matter how many days or hours continously  we remain engaged in those practices, we have not get nearer towards it, not even a fraction of an inch.

For it is only by Nam bhakti that we collect our attention or soul consciousness within and upwards  towards the Tenth Gate, there where lies the True subtle essence of Truth.....

And the more we do that nishkam bhakti with love, the more His blessings upon us, which is nothing but His apaar kirpa,  by which we are cleansed throughly, and become fit to merge and become one with Him.

Manumukhs try all sorts of practices accordingly to please their minds thus they feel they are doing something worthy; but it is only by following Gurmat, which only stresses upon Nam bhakti, for it is only by treading  this path of Nam Bhakti laid by Guru Jee Himself as per means of  true Bhakti, to get closer and become one with Him.

See by yourselves, that by all other practices except Nam bhakti,  we remain scattered in the 9 apertures or gates , thus far away from our goal of Truth,  so, we are not to copy what the world does, and please the world, it is to Him who we have to please, namely Waheguru Akal Purukh, by focussing ourselves on the ever  regular practice of Nam bhakti.

Nam bhakti is called true bhakti, becuase it gets us closer and closer to that Highest Universal unchangeable Truth of Satnam/Wahegru.

Stay blessed.

Sat Sree Akal.

ਦੇਵਾ ਪਾਹਨ ਤਾਰੀਅਲੇ

Dhaevaa Paahan Thaareealae ||

God makes even stones float.

 

ਰਾਮ ਕਹਤ ਜਨ ਕਸ ਨ ਤਰੇ ॥੧॥ ਰਹਾਉ

Raam Kehath Jan Kas N Tharae ||1|| Rehaao ||

So how come one not  float across,  by chanting Your Name, O Lord?

 

In these 2 verses above, Guru Jee clearly tells us that, if ever even remotely, we  want to cross the mahabhavsagar and reach our true Nijh Ghar in Sach Khand, no other practice is of our avail, except that one of repeating His holy name. 

And sadly  to say, it is this very Bhakti which most of us relegate as a last option in our daily practices,  that too,  when Guru Jee has clearly stressed upon, in each Ang, in each verse, upon what type of Bhakti to perform,   the one in which,  solely His holy Name is meditated upon, yet we shamelessly and ignorantly avoid it, then too, we say we love and firmly believe in Guru Jee.  

What a contradiction. 

By other outer practices, we remain devoid of that divine Truth, which is nowhere outside, but right within us, and it is only by His chintan, His meditation, that we are transported from outer  9 gates and portals,  towards within ourselves, the Tenth gate, there where He has kept Himself fully for us, but alas, nobody does any such thing to reach there. For nobody is even slightly interested in performing that unique bhakti, which Guru Jee constantly reminds us throught out the Bani.

Stay blessed.

SSA.
