Sangat Jee, in the beautiful video above,Guru Jee reveals us the secrets of spirituality, we  all are lost souls, but if we pay attention to the words of  Guru Jee in it,  and sip each Sat Bachan as a

@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 .

ਮਾਰੂ ਮਹਲਾ ੧ ॥ Maaroo Mehalaa 1 || Maaroo, First Mehl:   ਮਾਰੂ ਸੋਲਹੇ (ਮਃ ੧) ਗੁਰੂ ਗ੍ਰੰਥ ਸਾਹਿਬ ਅੰਗ ੧੦੩੫ ਅਰਬਦ ਨਰਬਦ ਧੁੰਧੂਕਾਰਾ ॥ Arabad

(869-9)
kar namaskaar pooray gurdayv.
Humbly bow to the Perfect  Guru

 (869-9)
safal moorat safal jaa kee sayv.
Fruitful is His image, and fruitful is service to Him.

(869-9)
antarjaamee purakh biDhaataa.
He is the Inner-knower, the Searcher of hearts, the Architect of Destiny.

(869-9)
aath pahar naam rang raataa. ||1||
Twenty-four hours a day, he remains imbued with the love of the Naam, the Name of the Lord. ||1||

 

*For those who think Nam japna is a minor or insignificant mode of devotion to be performed , Guru Jee tells us in the above verses that even the Divine Guru, none other than He Himself, is lovingly absorbed all the 24 hours in the meditative state on Nam.

Mahima on the love and devotion to Nam simran is apaar in Gurbani, yet we take it lightly or push it  back as something secondary when it comes in terms of our devotion towards Him.

Regarding the supreme and sole importance of Nam in our lives, following are some priceless sat bachans from Guru Jee:

ਬਿਨੁਨਾਵੈਸੂਤਕੁਜਗਿਛੋਤਿ

Bin Naavai Soothak Jag Shhoth ||

बिनु नावै सूतकु जगि छोति ॥

Without the Name, the world (all and everything in it) is defiled and untouchable.

ਬਿਨੁਨਾਵੈਕਿਆਲਹਸਿਨਿਦਾਨਿ॥੬॥

Bin Naavai Kiaa Lehas Nidhaan ||6||

Without the Name, what can the fool obtain? 

*To those who try to reach the Lord with all other practices but not Nam, Guru Jee calls them fools, for they can at most obtain Swarg or Baikunth, but not the realm of the True Lord Waheguru.

Q)Dear Guru Jee, what ardaas should one place before Him?

A)Listen carefully my dear sikh:

 

ਹਰਿਜੀਉਆਗੈਕਰੀਅਰਦਾਸਿ

Har Jeeo Aagai Karee Aradhaas ||

I offer that prayer to the Lord,

 

ਸਾਧੂਜਨਸੰਗਤਿਹੋਇਨਿਵਾਸੁ

Saadhhoo Jan Sangath Hoe Nivaas ||

That I might dwell in the Saadh Sangat, the Company of the Holy.

 

ਕਿਲਵਿਖਦੁਖਕਾਟੇਹਰਿਨਾਮੁਪ੍ਰਗਾਸੁ॥੯॥

Kilavikh Dhukh Kaattae Har Naam Pragaas ||9||

For there, sins and sufferings are erased, and one is illumined with the Lord's Name. ||9||

Q) Dear Guru Jee, please tell us  how can we please You?

A) dear sikh, listen carefully and keep it fixed in your mind at all times:

ਜੋਸਾਸਿਗਿਰਾਸਿਧਿਆਏਮੇਰਾਹਰਿਹਰਿਸੋਗੁਰਸਿਖੁਗੁਰੂਮਨਿਭਾਵੈ॥

Jo Saas Giraas Dhhiaaeae Maeraa Har Har So Gurasikh Guroo Man Bhaavai ||

One who meditates on my Lord, Har, Har, with every breath and every morsel of food - that GurSikh becomes pleasing to the Guru's Mind.

 

*Note: here Guru Jee is telling us that if we want to please Him, we should remember Him at all times through His simran. 

Yet sadly many arise questions by saying it is foolish in engaging in this highest devotion as regarded by Guru Jee.

What a pitiful scene, they who say such nonsense themselves are blind and lead others to the dark pitch of deep ignorance.

Q) Dear Guru Jee how can I wash my sins?

A) dear sikh, listen carefully and follow it implicitly if you want to become clean and pure:

 

ਅਵਰੁਨਅਉਖਧੁਤੰਤਨਮੰਤਾ॥

Avar N Aoukhadhh Thanth N Manthaa ||

There is no other medicine, Tantric charm or mantra.

 

ਹਰਿਹਰਿਸਿਮਰਣੁਕਿਲਵਿਖਹੰਤਾ॥

Har Har Simaran Kilavikh Hanthaa ||

For meditative remembrance alone upon the Lord, Har, Har, destroys sins.

Q), Guru Jee, I desire to see Him, what should I do?

A) Please  listen carefully:

Meditate on the Lord by repeating His name, O my friends and companions.


ਸਤਿਗੁਰੁਸੇਵਿਦੇਖਹੁਪ੍ਰਭੁਨੈਨੀ॥੧॥ਰਹਾਉ॥

Sathigur Saev Dhaekhahu Prabh Nainee ||1|| Rehaao ||

for by devoting yourself as prescribed by the Guru, you shall behold God with your eyes.
