  1. In Pauri 38 of Jap ji, Guru Nanak Dev ji describes the advanced meditation process using the analogy of a goldsmith. He describes the process as if it were being performed with a bunch of tools. We might read it often, perhaps in the nitnem, but do we really understand what he is talking about? Hopefully this thread will help you to understand this part of Guru Granth Sahib, and will help to put it on the map for your own inner journey. Let's get started - ਜਤੁ ਪਾਹਾਰਾ ਧੀਰਜੁ ਸੁਨਿਆਰੁ ॥ (ਜਤੁ) Ability to Withdraw the Five Senses from the world is the (ਪਾਹਾਰਾ) Workshop. (ਧੀਰਜੁ
  2. Sat Sri Akaal All You must be wondering why I created another topic when we already have a similar very successful topic here with similar heading. Haina? I agree. But let me narrate my experience and this is gonna be a long one. May take days. Please bear with me. I have gained alot from this site and this may be my small pay back. Thanks a tonn @Sat1176. I can't thank you enough for documenting your experience here. M trying to follow you. Ok, about two years ago I started feeling this sweet taste in my mouth. as I searched for its causes on internet, I rather got upset. All
  3. I hope this doesn't turn into an opportunity for some people to b1tch out over their childhood, but it is an interesting talk.
  4. There are two schools of spirituality - which one do you think sikhi belong to Gyaan marg vs bhakti marg (i) No Symbols of god - he is the universe vs God definitely needs a symbol For sikhs it has become Saroop of sggs and the confines of gurdwara (ii) No rituals are ever needed vs Rituals are a must In sikhi context we have started chavar, akahand paths, jot, sukhasan , prakash , expensive palkis , keep the saroop in AC / blankets (e.g I don't keep my phone in AC which also has the same SGGS in electronic format ) (iii) Meditation is the only way to find
  5. ੴ ਸਤਿਗੁਰ ਪ੍ਰਸਾਦਿ No time for intro, let's dive deep into it. How You Pronounce Onkar ਓਅੰਕਾਰ Before I get into the meat of the issue, I want to get one thing off my chest because I see a lot of people making this mistake. Oankaar/O-a-m-kaar have no meaning. This is a modern distortion of the word and symbol. People write ਓਅੰਕਾਰ as Oankar however, the ਅ in ਓਅੰਕਾਰ just a placeholder for the tippi. ਓਂਕਾਰ ਓਅੰ means ਓਂ and is pronounced as such. But since one never puts a bindi or tippi on ਓ, they never wrote ਓਂ. So they wrote ਓਂ as ਓਅੰ. Even today this is the case. ਓਅੰਕਾਰ is Onka
  6. Hello, Im just starting to get more and more into Sikhi and have never really meditated so dont know what to do lol. Is it just and simple as sitting cross legged, eyes close and repeat Waheguru? Can anybody offer any advice/tips/techniques for meditation? Perhaps do's and dont's and just general things that may help. Also how do i stop my mind from wondering whilst meditating like it so often does when i attempt to meditate or do paath and how to sit comfortabtly whilst meditating? Thanks
  7. When we meditate below the eye level and try to activate the six chakras or energy centers, it helps us to gain some remarkable experiences. But they don’t help in raising our awareness at all! We gain a lot of energy and benefits by activating chakras, but they are just meant for this world only. We can’t raise our awareness by those means. Then why put our attention below the eyes?
  8. Hello. I’m 18 now. I have been doing meditation for two weeks now, after watching Sandeep Maheshwari’s basic meditation video on YouTube. When I meditate, I listen to the high frequency type sound ringing in my ears, along with another sound that I can’t really describe. To relate to the best, it’s like the sound of rain. I follow Radha Soami Satsang Beas. Naam Daan is given to sangat older than 25 yrs of age. I was just wondering, should I continue doing meditation without naam daan? I’ve built an interest in spirituality in a short period of time and I’m confused now. Pls someone guide
  9. Waheguru ji, During simran, I start hearing my heartbeat as soon as I start Mansik Jaap. I have no idea what to do as this is becoming distracting. Please help..
  10. why does one get dry skin from meditation?
  11. Some people that have been meditating for years don't progress as much as others who see results in months. Could really strong attachment to Maya and money be a really big factor? Or is there a different reason/s. I know past life kamayi is one of the reasons some progress faster. Keen to know more, I've been really curious recently.
  12. Waheguru ji, With Guru Sahib's grace, while doing simran, body feels heavy and it falls back gradually. As a result, my back lies on the floor but my legs are still in "chonwkri", however simran goes deeper in this state. My question is.. Should I resist to lie down or let it go ? Thank you ji
  13. Waheguru Ji With Guru Sahib's grace, during simran abhyaas, I can hear very strong/load buzzing sounds and I feel like going through a tunnel in between my eyes. Some sort of images start to form but as soon as that happens, I kind of lose my concentration and get a feeling of coming back to my body. I try to concentrate on naam dhun, however in those loud buzzing sounds it becomes hard. Duration of those buzzing sounds is gradually increasing over days. Please share your views and experiences. Waheguru.
  14. WJKK WJKF First of all I'd like everyone to know that I'm a Mona singh and I love doing simran. I've always had questions about life growing up and when I started learning more about Sikhi slowly my answers started getting answered! But I have this one question to ask all of beautiful Sikhs on here! It's that everyday I wake up my thirst for God and Naam simran is growing like I can't even focus on anything else in my life from the time I get up at amritvela to the next amritvela I'm so intriguied by God and by the bliss I receive from naam. I'm starting to think this lifes a game/movie
  15. My Spiritual Journey Through Sri Japji Sahib - A Mystical Translation of Mool Mantra
  16. Dear friends, I heard someone speaking to me during meditation. Please provide the translation of the word/words "Kalla Lad or Kallalad" into English. Thank you so much!
  17. I have had this problem for a while and the issue is that when my mind becomes very focused my body might flinch. i.e. when it gets to the point where my mind and sound of voice are in perfect union my arm might twitch very hard and I'll lose the state. Many times I even flinch like you would when someone unexpectedly pretends to throw something at you. The longest the union lasts is a few moments. Probably 30 seconds at most. It isn't recently that this has started, it's been a while and I can't maintain the union for more than a few moments so I feel like I'm making a
  18. Cultivating Concentration (to Support Meditation) If you think that the goal of meditation is to make the mind blank, you have created an insurmountable obstacle to developing a rich, nourishing meditation practice. As Swami Prabhavananda and Christopher Isherwood observe in How to Know God, if making the mind blank were desirable, this condition could be “easily achieved by asking a friend to hit you over the head with a hammer.” It is not the mind’s nature to be blank, and trying to force it into that state is both futile and harmful. A meditative mind is a concentrated mind—a mind that
  19. Really good article worth reading... Enjoy :-) Think we all suffer with this from time to time. Think Meditation Is Boring? 10 Tips for Sticking with It I was arguing with my spiritual teacher, as usual. He had called me aside to discuss my meditation practice, and he clearly didn’t understand what I was saying. Swami ji was insisting that I focus my awareness at my heart center. Since I had recently graduated from a prestigious college at the top of my class, I was surprised that this yoga master from North India failed to recognize that, due to my towering intellect, obvious
