    Kaljug got a reaction from sarabatam in Meditating On The Third Eye   
    Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa, Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh!

    It's fine as a developmental tool and an aid to greater concentration.

    There is a method of naam simran described in Sant Jagjit Singh Harkhowale's autobiography that involves meditation on 4 chakras for each of the 4 syllables of Waheguru gurmantra.

    Sant Jagjit Singh however also says that meditation on chakras is not stable as the only true reality is Nirankar.

    Some who meditate on ajna chakra find that it heightens their spiritual vision, but it can also make one a little "spacey" and lose touch with the material world; thus they recommend spending as much time meditating on the navel chakra, as this tends to ground ones spirituality in the material world. Apparently, it's kind of difficult to concentrate on work and chores if one is constantly seeing gods and angels. ;-)

    Fateh!

    - Mahakaal in Dasam Granth is the same as Ram, Narayan, Akal Purakh, etc etc in Sri Guru Granth Sahib. Overwhelming evidence provided by singh2 is too numerous to summarise.

    The assenting opinions:
    - Mahakaal cannot be God because he has said nothing about Mangoes. (Balbir Singh)
    - Mahakaal cannot be God because I cannot think in anything but literal terms. (Kala Afghana ki Fauj)
    - Dasam Granth cannot be Guru Gobind Singh Ji's writings because it has naughty words in it that give me a funny feeling in my lower tummy that I don't understand. (Kala Afghana ki Fauj)
    - Mahakaal cannot be God but I am too tired to provide evidence so you just have to take my word for it until I make my TV appearance. (Kala Afghana ki Fauj),

    Hope that helps.

    Regards,

    The Khalsa Fauj:





    So, saying a granth has a head and toes means it's not a book? Or is it a figure of speech? It's clear that you have no idea how similes, metaphors, analogies, allusions and figurative speech work, despite your claims that you do. This is not a cheap shot, it's actually an illustration of your inability to think in any but literal terms.

    When Maradona claimed that it was the Hand of God that enabled him to score the winning goal in the World Cup, he wasn't talking about a big hand coming out of the sky and tapping the ball into the net.




    Your translation of these two terms is incorrect and has no basis in historical etymology.



    See above. Now you are just being silly and dramatic.




    Aatman does not die according to Gurbani.



    Have you never heard of cold burns? It's amusing that you call people illiterate when it's completely evident from your post that your reading comprehension is non-existent. Perhaps if you spent some time reading fiction and poetry instead of posting nonsensical statements in every thread, you might be able to understand these things.

    Look up metaphor, analogy, and simile in a dictionary or take a course in basic literary criticism, because these are used many times in bani.



    Does a granth have a head and toes, then?

    Etymology not Hindu Mat. You reinvent the meanings of words for your own purposes and then have the gall to whine about no one understanding you?



    There was no question, you were just making up completely idiotic meanings for expressions you clearly do not understand. It's clear to every single person, except you, reading these threads that the only one dodging questions and changing subjects every 2nd post is you.



    Absolute rubbish. Atman does not die because one is unaware of it, no more than the moon ceases to exist when the sun comes out.

    A Cuban friend of mine once told me a story.

    There was once a Cubano Catolico who so broke that he hadn't eaten any food for days. So, like a good Catholic, he got down on his knees and prayed: "Dios mio, I haven't had a straight meal for days. I'm starving, please answer my prayers and send me some good food and I'll go the Church next Sunday and light a candle for you in thanksgiving."

    After the first day, the Cubano is getting pains in his abdomen because he still hasn't received anything. Again, he gets down on his knees, and this time with more passion and desperation, he prays and prays with tears in his eyes. "Eh Dios, I know that I haven't been the best Catholic that I could be, but I still love you. You are my mother and father, please provide for me.

    It's approaching midnight on the second day and there has still been no response from Our Father in Heaven.

    On the third day, too weak to stay on his knees and too dehydrates to weep, the man lies prostrate on the ground and mumbles his prayers continuously for the whole day. "Dios mio, I have no one but you. Provide me for me and my children as you provided for St Joseph to care for the infant Jesus." He goes on and on like this until early on Sunday morning.

    On Sunday morning, at amritvela, the Devil appears in a puff of smoke, laughing at the man's misfortune. Says the Prince of Darkness, "You fool, you see that God does not answer your prayers because I am the real god of this world. Indeed, I am the sargun form of the Almighty who has come in answer to your prayers. Eat this food which I provide for you, and a light a candle for the one who has truly answered your prayers."

    At this, a veritable feast with smoked jutia, chicharones, ropa vieja, and all the arroz the man can eat appears as if by jadu. The man takes one look at the food and eats his fill with the Devil laughing uproariously above him.

    Come time for Sunday mass, the Cubano goes straight to church and lights a candle in thanksgiving, praying: "Dios mio, thank you for answering my prayer and sending your servant, the Devil, to bring me the food I asked you for. I light this candle for you, may it be a pleasing offering to you."

    The point is that, you may have personal experiences of devatay, pirs, sheikhs, or whatever, but one shouldn't allow them to distract you from the path of worship of the Highest.

    Yes, quote some Gurbani to make you feel better about your own ridiculous religious confusion.

    There is one Satguru in this Kal Yuga, and it ain't your "devi" with the hugging fetish.

    I just want you to know that I find the bilge you spew and mistake for real learning wonderfully entertaining. It is so clear that your one paltry "mystical" experience has unhinged your mind to such a degree that, years later, you are still repeating the same claptrap over and over again like a broken record in a garbled tongue, spun by a madman.

    You are in the same position that you were years ago, nothing has changed in your avastha and you are still completely ruled by your own haumai. Tell me, in the time that you were away, have you learned Gurmukhi - or even Sanskrit - or are you still too egotistical and lazy to learn?

    I often use you as an example of the dangers of having a basic and simple "spiritual visions" that any fool can have with a little practice and not being able to let them go to experience a deeper truth.

    Ten years from now, you will be exactly the same person you are now, writing the same longwinded, rambling, meaningless posts.

    Reminds me of the Zen koan. "If you see the Buddha on the road, cut him down."

    Just make sure that it's not just any old buddha that you cut down.

    Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa, Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh!

    Is there a maximum to the number of Chandi di Vars one should recite each day? I have heard some people say that one should not read more than 5.

    For those of you who read Braham Kavach, do you recite all 32 in the morning? Is it possible to split them up during the day, e.g., half in morning with nitnem and half in the evening with rehras?

    Thanks,

    Congrats on your bhakti, veer ji!

    I'm game for the chalisa. It would be cool if we could get at least 5 people so we could do 25,000 each over a period of 40 days. Ten people would be better because I'm a lazy moorakh.

    Some opinions on the objective would be great. My vote would be for both martial power and cool heads (or political astuteness) for the Panth so that we have the ability to conquer enemies but the presence of mind to know when rajniti is called for rather than rudra ras.

    After all your complaining about Singh Sabha incorrectly interpreting Gurbani tuks, you turn around and say "Oh Guru Ji didn't mean what he said. He must have meant something else."

    Your hypocrisy is incredible (and quite amusing to see).

    Kaljug got a reaction from savinderpalsingh in Can Women Be In The Panj Pyare   
    Have you spoken with Sant Jagjit Singh Harkhowale about this issue? I recall him telling the sangat the reasons that Panj Piaray had to be men (similar to Sant Jarnail Singh Bhindrawale's given in the clip above), and also advising that the Singhs in the Panj Piaray needed to be healthy in body (he gave example of why a Singh with a missing limb should not be in the Panj Piaray) as well as in his Sikhi.

    My personal opinion is that maryada should not be altered by anyone, brahmgyani or not, if it is Guru given. I also feel that since Khande Ki Pahul was initially a warrior's initiation and given first by 5 Sikhs in male human form, it should always be administered by 5 Sikhs in male human form who have health, strength, and at least some understanding of shastar puja/vidya.

    Yes, brahmgyanis are beyond gender in spiritual avastha but their physical roop has a gender, and an energy based on this gender, which is represented and passed on by them during amrit sanchar.
