    Quotes from AMRIT BANI

    @harsharan000 and @Sikhilove Interesting topic. Without butting into a debate, I have to say that as per my understanding of "truthful living" and good deeds; I would agree with @harsharan000 . @Sikhilove, let me explain below on why I come to this conclusion. Doing good deeds falls under the umbrella of Satogun behavior.. Remember that maya is divided into tamogun, rajogun and satogun. >the 3 gunas of maya.. Since maya is the creative illusion, it is also in a continuous flux of motion. Sometimes we call it Kaal's desh since this motion is relative to Time and Space. Howe

  3. You can achieve power by practicing mantras. In english you could say that you 'sidh a mantra'. As I mentioned above: Haumai naavay naal virodh hai. Doay na vasai khataey. If you practice a mantra, any mantra, with the aim of getting power, anger or anything related to the five thieves or ego then it is not naam. Naam is your 'true self', the Satnaam. Man tu jot swaroop hai, aapna mool pachaan. The examples of abuse Sikhilove is making above refer to people who get some amount of power and use it for personal gain of some sort. Not all of them do so overtly, t

  5. Men and women are Equal. Gurbani tells us to see God in every heart, and see that He is our True Husband. At some point, humans decided that mean are higher than women, when Gurbani teaches pure equality. Look at Mai Bhago, the perfect example of a woman. Our different Janams, our different sexes in janams are symbolic of this. We are ever changing. Only the Truth remains. Why worship a fleeting shadow when the King of Kings is the only being that remains, the only reason we wake up, eat food, breathe air, walk amongst the trees etc. Life is temporary. See God in your husband and wif

There is actually something similar for Diwali as well where Dasvin 10th Patshah actually uses the word 'Diwali'!

  7. First of all, obviously I am not high spiritual level, but I have come a long way in the last couple years, and especially the past couple weeks I have been progressing like a rocket. There have been many mistakes I made, and much I have learned. I want to share this with you all, and I hope this will be helpful. ----------- Start making values and rules and don't go back on them. Some easy but very helpful ones are to; not watch tv, movies, shows or listen to songs. Instead listen to katha and kirtan. In my free time, I don't ever watch this, if nothing to do, just sit outside alone

  8. SSA Lucky Jee, no worries for anything at all, you are always welcome to share your views just as anybody else. You see, one can never ever force one´s views on anybody, for after all everbody has his/her own personal consciouss level, thus howsoever hard one may try, the other person will simply reject. So no need for hard words, but as this an public forum, one should be careful with what one says, as many may get to beileve what they may see or read at a particular time which maybe absolutely imperfect or incomplete. That is why if I see something like that, I try to gi

    Quotes from AMRIT BANI

    In terms of doing good deeds alone, would like to add that without naam the fruit of these can be stolen or lost: Whereas with naam: and also Simran isn't something you just 'sit at home' and do, when you walk in hukam everything is simran, every thought and deed. If it's your hukam to sit in a cave and meditate that's fine, and if it's your hukam to be a householder and gregarious that's also fine. Everyon'es path is different, Guru Nanak's way has no dogma because once the Sikh discovers hukam they learn to follow their unique path.

  10. First of all, all deeds are actions, and any action is karma, which may be good or bad, and as such kamas are like seeds sown for which we have to come when they are reap, some may have planted mangoes, so they come to collect mangoes(good karmas = healthy, happy life), others may have planted "mirchi" , so they have to come and collect or eat their own sown seeds of pain and misery, so karmas or deeds are definetely not truthful living... To view truthful living in the perspective of Gurmat, we have to understand and keep in mind what that Truth is. The Truth mentioned in Gurbani is

  12. Very good understanding. Naam, shabad,and amrit burn haumai and desires (trishna ) "haumai trishna shabad bujaai" Guru Amardas jee Naam does not produce ego but it will invoke the awareness of it. The seeker becomes conscious of when mann is acting in ego or when mann is in guru's hukam( gur-mat). You get better in recognizing when one's ego is in play.

Be free from these bounds, doesn't matter if blood relations or whtv nonsense. When you are rising, people even your parents will unconsciously or consciously try to pull your down to their level.

  17. Very good points. Yet, if allowed to give my 2 cents for real progress, let us just do as Guru Jee says: SAAS SAAS SIMROH GOBIND. Why so? Because with it, we keep negativity at distance, and at the same time, we become receptive to His kirpa, which is the force to keep us on the right tracks. SSA.

  18. They are as different as North and South. Nam is the only everlasting and changeless Truth, which can be described as a supreme consciouss creative power with infinite virtues, and among all of them love and mercy, like cream on milk, as per description by His Bhagat Jan, Gurmukhs and Guru Sahiban. While riddhis and siddhis are just lifeless and consciousless energies without any virtues by themselves. Take for example a knife, which can cut vegetables to be eaten, or can be used to harm someone. So you see, while Nam/Shabad/Satnam is a consciouss life force of the

  20. Well, you’re on the right path. Experiences like that propel you forward, giving you encouragement. Regarding the Love, you’ll experience it for yourself. The more you practice Gurbani in your life, including daily life, the more you’ll recognize the love. It’s always there, we just often don’t see/acknowledge or accept it. Do naam simran from 12.30am. 2.5 hours is recommended...you’ll go into deep samadhi and knock out while doing it. But do at least half an hour. Relax and hear the ringing sound (Anhad Naad), and let the samadhi/deep meditation take you. Read Guru Grant

  28. I believe gurbani. The khel is beyond logic. Everything is Karam and everything is a khel, derived from Nothing. If one goes to hell, it’s Karam. But in reality hell is an illusion as is the khel. It’s beyond logic. We cannot comprehend it, using worldly logic... it can only be experienced and felt. And the path of Truth discovery never ends. Try reading and applying the gyan of gurbani to your life (Truthful living) and taking to long simran sessions from 12pm onwards. Go deep into your samadhi and discover it.

  32. Tomatoes: I started these in spring (3 varieties Piccolos, Baby Plums and Beef) from seeds I got from tomatoes I bought at the supermarket - on the window ledge. Start them in tiny pots and then replant them in bigger ones. Then when they are ready to plant out acclimatise them for a week or two, by taking them out in the day and bringing them back in at night for a week or two. It's important to give them support as they get large and the weight of the growing tomatoes can snap the branches. Super tip! Calcium deficiency (to which they are prone) can lead to blossom

  33. Spinach: I now grow a variety of spinach types. I've found real spinach difficult to grow (because they don't seem to be able to tolerate temperature changes), and have been mainly relying on perpetual spinach and Swiss Chard (which are hardy and can be grown well into the coldest weather). This is how they start (I plant the seeds straight into the ground, you need to leave a lot of space between perpetual varieties as they can grow BIG): Recently someone gave me some desi palak seeds and these are coming up nicely. I used salvaged India stone bricks from a wall I

  35. Congrats bro. Well done from your side by staying away from the bad sangat. The next step is to stay alone or be in sadh-sangat, read Gurbani, listen katha keertan or just distract yourself with healthy hobbies, or go for jogging, or join a gym, the thing is to keep an eye on the devlish mind. And last pray sincerely to Waheguru to help you go smoothly away from the bad company. Good luck. SSA.

I haven't drank or smoked in almost 2 years.A huge factor in quitting alcohol is the ability to distance yourself from other drinker friends as alcohol is a social drug and the further you are from drinkers the lower chance you have of being tempted to drink.This is the toughest part.Your so called friends will mock,belittle and straightforward get hostile with you as you move further away from them because they feel insecure and inferior that you are able to quit and they are still dependent on drinks.They will do their best to drag you in with all sorts of tricks and if that doesn't work the

  38. In my humble opinion, I do not think thirst for knowledge is any hindrance in the sound current path. Rather, if there is any hindrrance it is the desire of possesing or aquiring to dominate or boast about it, this in reality is hankar or ego, and ego is the last vikaar/thief to leave . The example I usually give for the above situation is that one of Ravan. What jap or tap did he not perform? Then too, he was yet very much wicked even after aquiring so many powers, that he had overpowered the devtays and all the 5 chor were very much active in him, that too being such a devot

  39. Almost all of us do His bhakti in various ways. But have we ever asked ourselves what is true bhakti which is accepted by Him, and not only that, but, that one which pleases Him the most. For if it does not please Him what we offer Him, then, of what use is that bhakti? We do bhakti not to please ourselves as per our limited thinking, but, to please our beloved Waheguru Akal Purukh. ਇਕਿ ਖੜੇ ਕਰਹਿ ਤੇਰੀ ਚਾਕਰੀ ਵਿਣੁ ਨਾਵੈ ਹੋਰੁ ਨ ਭਾਇਆ ॥ Eik Kharrae Karehi Thaeree Chaakaree Vin Naavai Hor N Bhaaeiaa || Some stand and serve You; without the Name, nothing else please

Could distrubute leaflets flyers of the website at gurdwaras,nagar kirtans etc. Also a facebook,instagram page should be made as well or at least think of how and what to post on there etc.

Also another point which really struck me was that there is no mention of Panj Jathedars of Takats in Sikh History before 19
