Thanks, veer ji. I learnt Punjabi by reading paath, lol. I would look at the romanisation and compare it to the Punjabi version and started to pick up the letters and stuff. You can also use apps to learn it, though. But the first way is the best, lol.

Veer ji for me it was like that i spoke fluent punjabi at home with my mum when being a kid but now i speak really good punjabi that people get confused if i am uk born lol.

 

Yes how taught myself banis paaths was the same as i used roman english scripts of the banis paaths then using a Damdami Taksal paathi would listen to the words against the script to check spellings etc then i would repeat like copy the sounds heard as how the audio is. 

 

Thats how i learnt the banis i usually do at home.

 

Also i used sundar gutka app and other places to get banis like Brahm Kavach and many more not common banis into large readable print size for my eyes as the roman english gutka i have at home is really small the text and i had difficulty reading it.

 

So i made my own print outs of the banis so i won't have to use the gutka apps as its not good for my eyes.

These books are really good as this is what really was the source roots of my life. 

They are based on  Sant Niranjan Singh Ji as they had blessing by Sant Baba Nand Singh Ji , Baba Attar Singh Ji and had met Baba Jawla Singh Ji Harkowal. 

 

These books are a must as Sant Ji read Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji at the age of 5.

 

I would recommend these to everyone as these pothis took me out of hell like lifestyle i had once.

they are good books but they can easily be misinterpreted and not understood. Especially if one is reading whilst on the bhagti marg path. I found, along with some other abyasees, that there were some serious errors. especially when it came to "anhad".   

In my opinion, the book by "bandiginama "  bhai Ragbir Singh was more helpful. As I was making the efforts on journey, I referrd back to the book a dozen times and always found something new to relate to, whereas i didn't with other books.

I think when bhai randhir singh ji says the "gurmat Anhad naad" he means the kirtan from sachkhand heard after opening of dasam duar, in later stages. While "yogic Anhad Naad" probably means the sound of Om which is called the primordial sound in yoga. It is claimed that Om is the sound of the beginning of the Universe by the yogis. I might be wrong, though. Feel free to correct me. :)

Veer ji thanks for sharing this as i forgot to mention Bhai Ragbir Singh Ji as they were a puran kamai gurmukh. 

 

I haven't read any of their books yet but i am thinking of getting their pothi writting in english as the title you mentioned is a really good book i heard.

 

As you have got experince with simran i will leave it you as to what you found useful.

 

I have got Anhad Shabad Dasam Daur book by Bhai Randhir Singh Ji which i have not read yet but the title is very nice though.

 

Personally when i was at rock bottom as a teen Sant Niranjhan Singh Ji book really really changed my life (for which i have posted a link for in this thread). It was like being born again when i had finished it as my jeevan really changed a lot. 

 

I shouldn't talk about this but it was just one of my experinces at the time.

 

I see that you have a pic of taxi driver with robert deniro and your username is de niro. Are you a fan veer ji as i really liked taxi driver and many of his other movies as well.

Veer ji here is a short history article i found on Bhai Ragbir Singh Ji's jeevan.

Sardar Raghbir Singh Bir

Sardar Raghbir Singh Bir was a Sikh businessman who used to live in Calcutta (Bengal). His family was originally from Lahore and his father Sardar Lehna Singh also was a very good Gurmukh. At first Bir jee got interested in Sikhi and he wrote the famous book Bandaginama on his spiritual experiences. In this book he writes that he used to dye and tie his beard, even though he knew it was a wrong practice. He did so at the order of his father who was not a religious person at that time.

Later on, when his father Sardar Lehna Singh got infected with many diseases including arthritis, he took up Sikhi to cure himself. He did so much Abhyaas of Gurbani and Naam that within a very short period he became perfectly healthy. Till his last breath, at the age of 85, he maintained the body of a 25 years old youth. He wrote a wonderful book on his experiences and is called Gurmukh Jeevan. He was a fanatic as far as not using worldly medicine is concerned. He considered himself as pure Atma and conducted his business as such. Once, he hurt his foot and he did all things opposite to what doctor suggested. He did not tie his foot with a bandage and deliberately exposed it to water (as opposed to doctor's advice) and still got healed. First of all he never got sick but if he ever did, he used to conduct his business as usual and ate normal as well. He totally used to reject the notion of disease because he believed that a disease cannot occur to Atma.

Once, Bir jee and Sardar jee (Lehna Singh jee) started talking about the Atma saroop of the Jeev. Bir jee questioned that if we were truly Atma, then why was there a need to sleep. At this Sardar jee agreed and then proved it by not sleeping for many days, and still not feeling any tiredness or fatigue. He used to do his regular work all day, and at night would come to the bedside of his son and all night do Naam Abhyaas.

Once a thought came to his mind that why should he use the mosquito net for protection from mosquitoes. He argued that the mosquitoes contained the same Parmatma Vaheguru as all of us and as such they should not bite him and hurt him. So he removed the net and also removed his shirt and slept with kachera only. The next morning his body was so badly bitten by the mosquitoes that there was not a part on his body that was unhurt. Sardar jee laughed it off saying that the reason why mosquitoes had hurt him was that he had some hidden hatred and negative feeling for them. Then he did Naam Abhyaas all day and kept affirming again and again that the mosquitoes were a roop of Vaheguru and that Vaheguru jee could not hurt him. Within couple of days, the mosquitoes stopped biting him at all and then all his life he never slept with mosquito net and he never got hurt by mosquitoes.

Sardar Raghbir Singh Bir wrote some excellent books which include the following titles:

Sarb Rog ka Aukhand Naam - This books talks about curing oneself through Naam and Gurbani.

Chardi Kala - This book contains chosen articles that bring Chardi Kala to one's life.

Safal Jeevan - This books talks about how to have a successful live - both worldly and spiritual.

Ramzi Kahaniyaan - This book contains some fictitious stories that are full of spirituality and spiritual secrets. A must read for serious seekers.

Ardaas Shakti - This book talks about the concept of Ardaas in Sikhi and how to do such an Ardaas that gets heard by Vaheguru jee.

Bir jee writes of his experience after stopping to dye and tie his beard. He writes how he started getting treated differently everywhere he went. If he would be standing in a queue, he would get moved to the top because of his appearance etc.

Good book, yes. I read it along time ago when I was in a phase of continuous reading, so, I don't recall much of it.

I respect all Gursikhs including Bhai Randhir Singh ji.  Why did he not ask Guru ji directly about Ragmala ? I always have had this question.

Bhai saab Bhai Randhir Singh jee was a great Gurmukh.

Daas heard in a katha that the notorious Teja Bhasauria did an ardas in front of Sri Satguru jee that Bhai saab jee will not either read, or will not consider Sri Raagmala Sahib as Gurbani. Daas will try to post the katha tidbit, if found.

Thanks veer ji for sharing that information. It was teja singh who was his main strength in the starting of bhai randhir singh.

 

I remember a katha clip by both Sant Gurbachan Singh Ji and Sant Kartar Singh Ji when a guy brought a saroop of Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji without Raagmala published and how had got ants worms in his mouth as a shraap curse for the paap at sri akal takhat sahib during the british rule. I can post those tracks if you or anyone on here wants to listen to them.

 

 

 

Here is a katha track where gyani thakur singh mentions Baba Harnam Singh Ji Rampurkhera Wale did bachan with Guru Ji on Raagmala.

I went a number of times with BA as a courier.  That way I'd get the flight for 200 quid single way, whereas it'd normally be 4500 quid. I was a part time student in my 20's in those days.

I know what you mean. You go through periods in life where it changes. I've had a number of years when I stayed away from all tv and media entertainment nd just focused on bhagti and finding myself (soul searching like your username) 

Nowadays, I still enjoy the same movies, but I have a much better perspective and perception.  I tend to view them through a lenses of all the characters/actors  in their roles, whereas in my youth, I'd be watching through main characters lens only and focusing only on his actions/reactions.    Have a tendency to watch anything but seeing it from behind the veil.

I don't know to be honest but bhai saab has helped encourage huge numbers into sikhi and that;s probably what I try to focus on.  But yes, I never quite understood  about raagmala because he must have gone through various avstha's where raags are heard and experienced.   Some of these levels come quite early after hearing naam and I remember being confused over this issue after I first heard them.
