  1. I don't agree with this message people are getting from somewhere that you should fall asleep. Sunn is the space between sleep and wake, it's not the same as sleep.
  2. Either can be done. Mool mantar should be done only when you can sit and focus on all the words. Waheguru can be done any time. Mool mantar is an explanation of Waheguru. Jap Ji Sahib is an explanation of Mool Mantar. They all go hand in hand. From rara sahib recordings I vaguely remember something like 40 Waheguru mala = 6 Mool Mantar mala = 5 Jap Ji Sahib paath, but not 100% sure.
  3. I thought nij ghar is through the crown, above dasam duar?
  4. I think it was your thread form 17 years ago lol! But agreed.
  5. Bad energies trying to trigger a response. Dhoop won't stop that, just observe without trying to stop it.
  6. It's more for cleansing the space rather than for stopping thoughts. Nor is the aim of meditation to stop thoughts. Thoughts will continue in your lower mine, eventually you will separate from it and won't be conscious of the nonsense but it will still be there.
  7. I heard a native american refer to smudging as 'spiritual hand sanitiser'. I think our tradition of incense is the same concept?
  8. You are making an offering to Guru Sahib, so imo the Golak should be exactly where it is - at Guru Sahib's charan.
  9. That process is internal and a bit different to the process of breaking ties to external entities.
  10. It's not that you didn't have the problem. They were there in the background happy that you were stagnating. When you started doing paat they resist because it threatens their control of you. Also light ghee jot. Personally I like mool mantar and jap ji sahib because they're easier for me, but if you have understanding of the other banis it's fine. Do you mind my asking what dumb stuff you did?
  11. Let's put instructional videos in this thread to avoid clutter on the other threads: I'll start.
  12. Shall we start another thread for all these videos? I feel like the 'personal experience' factor of this thread is being overshadowed. Maybe a 'Meditation instructional videos' thread?
  13. 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.
  14. 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
  15. Condensed Quote from Raymond Kinman who had a near death experience : Brother, life is VERY realistic... but it ain’t real. None of this is real. I don’t put much stock in the idea that this world is all there is. This is a very, very small part of the infinite whole. I like to think of myself as an actor in a play. I am playing a very small, but very important part in this play. This is not real, it is just a very realistic drama. A play. A movie. This movie is a place where God can pretend that he is not God. God isn’t a person. God is everything and everyone
