    ragnarok got a reaction from paapiman in Taking off Kara...   
    I never removed my kara for any sports, never had a problem. Didn't play much basketball though. 
    Sarbloh is important because it also offers protection against negative entities.

    Many Sikhs probably also believe that the so-called Sikh Rehat Maryada is not a Panthic maryada.
     
    You have been provided with evidence from Gurbani and a Puratan Rehatnama, which proves that Sarabloh Rehat is very important for a devout Sikh.
     
    Bhul chuk maaf

    Many Sikhs and most Sampradas believe in Sri Dasam Gurbani. Khalsa is born out of Gurbani, which includes Sri Dasam Gurbani.

    I’ve had the first dose. Can’t say I felt great after having it. Had fever for 2 days and my arm was swollen for over a week.
    I would take my chances with  vaccine over getting COVID again.

    Antargat is better but if you can't do it start with baikhri. By the time you get to the end you'll probably be antargat.

    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, there are gupt ones who are potentially more dangerous. By definition this is not naam even though it may involve mantra simran. Not all mantra simran is naam simran.
     
    I would say Sidhi refers to the power, which may or may not be used selflessly. In general Sikhs are not supposed to use these at all even though a Sikh will gain the ability to access them along the path (ridh sidh nav nidh) but should leave everything to Hukam, and approach Maharaj with Ardas in case there is any issue bothering the Sikh.

    ragnarok reacted to paapiman in question about bani (Tav Parsaadh Sava'ye)   
    That verse exposes hypocrisy (pakhand) among fake holy men. The crane sits with his eyes closed, in order to catch its prey (fish, etc). The prey is unaware that the crane is about to kill it. Similarly, some imposters pretend to be holy men, but in reality, some of them may be just looking to entrap gullible people for worldly gains (financial, etc.).
    Please listen to the katha below for more details.

    It means if you look like you are meditating on the outside but nothing going on inside then what you are doing is useless. i.e. if you are faking it.

    ragnarok reacted to kidsama in Progress fast spiritually. Tips.   
    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, its 100% better, and when you give up these you will move very fast.  Second is to stop speaking harshly at all. Get control over your tongue. When doing Dasam bani, like Bhagouti astotar, etc, it fills you with bir ras, but Guru sahib ji hates it when you use that to speak badly and let it out at someone. Always speak firmly but with respect. I made this mistake, and I had to do shabad hazare (just the first mehl) 3x and do ardass and promise to never misuse my tongue ever again.  Next is don't speak extra or uselessly. Only speak as needed. Why discuss useless topics?  The biggest quality is to accept the truth even if you can't live up to it. Most people when they hear what they should be like or what they should do, they just reject it, to not make themselves feel bad. Even if you can't do it, accept that I am lacking in this. Just this acceptance alone will bring great kirpa, and keep you in the right direction.  Take Amrit. This one is obvious. Wear 5 kakkar, keep rehat, and do nitnem, and Guru sahib will take you under his wing and lead you to Sachkhand. Very good deal, lol.  When you move up fast, people or dark entities somehow something will always try to keep you down. Be aware of that. Bir Ras banis are very helpful in this case.  Always admit mistake when you make it. Don't let hankar (ego) get in the way of apologizing.  This is a big one for me that I leanred recently and it's chaning my whole reality. That is to not waver ever (dolna). Remain firm and steady. Your hand might shake and your leg might shake but the mind should stay strong and unmovable. "Asthar raho dolho matt kabhu gur ke bachan adhar, jai jai kar sagal bhu mandal mukh ujal darbar." NEVER give up your faith in your Guru for even a second. I used to do this all the time this year. For the past couple of weeks, I have been getting tested, and I have remained adhol.  Last thing is to "save your progress". We often don't realize how far we have come, and can get demotivated or side tracked. A handwritten journal is helpful.

    ragnarok reacted to Lucky in Maryada After Death (Antim Sanskar)   
    this one got me!
     During my nde in coma, I also came back from the court of dharmraj. Was instructed to go back and -nam jap- these were the 2 clear words. I came back and spent a few years from 2011 to find out what real nam jap is and what I should be doing.  I'm on the bhagtee marj but I still have loads to to. Thing that shocked me was the man in video who had been sent back was told he'd got 10 years to go and jap. I wasn't given a time but it is now 2021.. nearly 10 years since the incident.. This is like a kick up the backside because i've got so may things to do in bhagtee and stuff to sort at home..

    ragnarok reacted to Lucky in Maryada After Death (Antim Sanskar)   
    TBH, I've never talked too much about it in great detail.. I never even told my mother because she was way too drowned in maya. But I can tell you there are many fictional and fake versions out there, so you have to be careful what you read.
    It was quite confusing for a few years because there were also a lot of things happening whilst I were in the month long coma. It took quite a few years to make sense of it since I'd also suffered significant brain and spinal injuries. 
     Did I believe in judgment day, the court or an after life?  I don't think I did, but probably believed in some kind of hereafter.  Prior to 2011, I was typical lad doing lots of bad stuff. and I really mean stuff that I'd be too ashamed to mention on here.  I'd do paaps and hera fairees like the rest of them among me all week long, and then go gurdwara on Sunday, giving large donations in the hope that my guilty conscience may be forgiven in some way.
    The thing about getting your hasab done at the court is different for everybody depending on what karams or fates you may have faced in previous janams.  In my case, I had previously begged for another janam to go and jap naam. I had been given this jeevan to do that. However, I came, never japped naam but instead created more bad karams whilst lost in this land of maya.
    I didn't have jamms beat me,  but I went past them at one stage and could see them beating others whilst hearing screams and pains of torture. I somehow knew that the ones suffering were there to learn from past deeds.
    Nowadays, I understand my sole purpose in life and the certain tasks that I've been assigned to do from the higher sources. Jap naam and bhagtee are the priorities and I try to schedule everything else around that as compared to one who attempts to fit in bhagtee if and where they may have some time

    Calm down. Sikhi is a practical path. 
    If you eat healthy and exercise every day but one day eat a cake you are not doomed to obesity. 
    Mistakes and slip ups are inevitable, just dust yourself off and get back to work.
