  1. I pretty much never intervene in conflict but I think it’s necessary right now This portion of the site is dedicated to sharing experiences. Simple. No arguments, no treguni posts. Nothing. If you guys want to discuss something, send each other a personal message. That’s what a lot of us do. We talk directly with each other in private conversations. I would recommend doing the same, especially if it’s a personal issue. People who don’t believe in sharing their spiritual experiences, also usually believe in not reading about them either. People who don’t share, typically feel s

  2. If I agree with what someone has said I will like. Please don't lecture me on what I should and shouldn't like. I'm not aware of liking any post with nindaya and recall only liking one post today by Sukh_preet where I agree with her view about sharing. This whole topic is about sharing. I find it annoying when people come on here and say don't share and try and discourage others from talking further. As if they are the naam simran police. It's so demotivating and infusing paranoia into people's head to think negative and watering the seeds of doubt (bahm). No one is forcing anyone to share wha

  5. I don’t claim to be of any avastha or spiritual stage. This path of bhagti is never ending. But it’s a path of Bhagti. Of Love. Not avasthas, who’s higher up, what’s higher up. There is no higher or lower. It’s only until you literally put your head on the floor and accept your self as shit as the Gurus themselves accepted themselves as lowly worms, that you start truly loving. I’m by no means perfect at all. I accept myself as shit. I’m just a sinner, we all are without Him. For without Truth, we live in ego, I wondered around for years in fear etc. it actually took me ages to accep

  6. This thread is more than just experiences. It is a more like a dairy that documents our journey to understand simran, the inner journey and what we are learning and experiencing along they way by a number of individuals. The posts contain subtle hints that may help someone in the future. We might not have all the answers today but as I see in my own journey things I read 10+ years ago are presenting themselves again via different channels. There is some hidden truth out there which I don’t fully understand yet but I hope I am making slow progress in the right direction.

Be a free spirit and strong Be happy and grateful for what you have Be real (and never get over excited or nervous about anything), and accept reality Accept that only I dictate my life and who I am, no one else can define me or dictate my life.

    Hey everyone

    How is everyone? I signed up to this last week and finally got accepted. I got back into Sikhi after a VERY long time and I realized I wasn't even into it really before. I was just born into it but didn't know much due to being young and just paying no attention to it. These last 3 or 4 months, I have learned so much and it is amazing googling questions and finding answers and discussions. I never thought I would voluntarily go to the Gurdwara sahib every chance I get to listen to the Katha and listen to the Sukhmani Sahib or Kirtan on the way to work, etc. I just wanted to say that I'm lookin

    @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

Stay away from a 10 year toxic relation that ate away your spiritual wealth. 3. Never get too excited or too happy 4. Follow your gurus hukum to the 100% especially control your eyes.

    You probably know enough already to walk quite far down this journey. Now work on the practical building not the theoretical understanding unless you need your battery charging. I should also practice what I preach HaHa. You shouldn't really have too many questions for Gurmukhs unless your having simran problems or experiences that you want to share or discuss with them. Honestly they get fed up with people calling them all the time. Don't become one of those. Keep it once every few weeks or months. Then they love to hear from you, and see how your getting on. Just shows them you not one

    Guys, you really don't want to fall in this entrapment. The Mind is too easy to tempt into different directions. Grabbing tips from x,y and z will only make the mind race and prevent it form stabilizing. One's daily conduct has to be done with a steady mind. How you go about in your day reflects how easily you can go into sehaj and steadiness in simran. Keep it simple, have faith and be prepared to give your matt at all times. Jumping around with a monkey mind, going from x,y, z will only weaken your hold over the mann. You must have complete faith in the EK that you decide t

    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.

  31. 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

  32. 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.

  33. 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

We all on this path and learning together, here is my 2 cents- step by step process is not essential for everyone especially if one has tasted the direct path -grabbed narsingh directly (-narsingh symbolism of pure live atma-pure awareness) available all the time to everyone or narsingh(pure awareness) have grabbed you, even if its not essential then baby step by step process is highly recommended and safe for everyone as my veers lucky,soulfinder and sat pointed out- worked so hard/ lived example expereince on this thread to help others as there are some really good reasons for that- -

All abhiyasis feel their surti travelling above into Akash, sometimes floating slowly and other times very speedily launching off and travel to different devloks as lucky veerji and hisservant veerji has mentioned on the forum many times ( you can read some old threads) .. There, they get different experiences, like few sit and do simran and others hear music/ kirtan etc. This happens to them almost every night. This isn't OBE, Rather this is Sikhi.

We can't even think of following his life style like shedding Maya totally ( he never touched money- left family- wore negligible clothes- even in super cold weather, ate nothing for days).
