  1. waheguru ji, those are all tuks from bani I don't understand what you guys mean when you say it's a must. If I talk about my personal experience with this stuff, when I'm on a big streak, usually at least a month - as long as my simran is balanced my mind stays away from kaami thoughts. But once something happens to my simran I end up falling back in. Once I'm back in the cycle, not only do I get addicted but my kaami thoughts get to their worst. What I'm beginning to think is that it's just a game of energy. That energy is going to release itself in one way or another.
  2. Waheguru ji I think this might have been me explaining it wrong but I think you misunderstood me. What I meant is the energy specifically. What I've learnt from old katha recordings is that you can either express that energy in kaam or naam. We have to close the nine doors so the energy goes to the 10th. I think this Shabad leans towards saying to preserve sexual fluid. Also seems like second line might back up my point. But I might be misinterpreting. ਹੈ ਹਜੂਰਿ ਕਤ ਦੂਰਿ ਬਤਾਵਹੁ ॥ God is present, right here at hand; why do you say that He is far away? ਦੁੰਦਰ ਬਾਧਹੁ ਸੁੰਦਰ ਪਾਵਹੁ ॥੧॥ ਰਹਾਉ ॥ Tie up your disturbing passions, and find the Beauteous Lord. ||1||Pause|| ਕਾਜੀ ਸੋ ਜੁ ਕਾਇਆ ਬੀਚਾਰੈ ॥ He alone is a Qazi, who contemplates the human body, ਕਾਇਆ ਕੀ ਅਗਨਿ ਬ੍ਰਹਮੁ ਪਰਜਾਰੈ ॥ and through the fire of the body, is illumined by God. ਸੁਪਨੈ ਬਿੰਦੁ ਨ ਦੇਈ ਝਰਨਾ ॥ He does not lose his semen, even in his dreams; ਤਿਸੁ ਕਾਜੀ ਕਉ ਜਰਾ ਨ ਮਰਨਾ ॥੨॥ for such a Qazi, there is no old age or death. ||2|| Other one I've seen is ਰੰਗਿ ਨ ਰਾਤਾ ਰਸਿ ਨਹੀ ਮਾਤਾ ॥ If one is not imbued with the Lord's Love, nor intoxicated with His subtle essence, ਬਿਨੁ ਗੁਰ ਸਬਦੈ ਜਲਿ ਬਲਿ ਤਾਤਾ ॥ without the Word of the Guru's Shabad, he is frustrated, and consumed by his own inner fire. ਬਿੰਦੁ ਨ ਰਾਖਿਆ ਸਬਦੁ ਨ ਭਾਖਿਆ ॥ He does not preserve his semen and seed, and does not chant the Shabad. ਪਵਨੁ ਨ ਸਾਧਿਆ ਸਚੁ ਨ ਅਰਾਧਿਆ ॥ He does not control his breath; he does not worship and adore the True Lord. ਅਕਥ ਕਥਾ ਲੇ ਸਮ ਕਰਿ ਰਹੈ ॥ But one who speaks the Unspoken Speech, and remains balanced, ਤਉ ਨਾਨਕ ਆਤਮ ਰਾਮ ਕਉ ਲਹੈ ॥੬੨॥ O Nanak, attains the Lord, the Supreme Soul. ||62|| And ਜਤਨ ਕਰੈ ਬਿੰਦੁ ਕਿਵੈ ਨ ਰਹਾਈ ॥ No matter how much he tries, he cannot control his semen and seed. ਮਨੂਆ ਡੋਲੈ ਨਰਕੇ ਪਾਈ ॥ His mind wavers, and he falls into hell. ਜਮ ਪੁਰਿ ਬਾਧੋ ਲਹੈ ਸਜਾਈ ॥ Bound and gagged in the City of Death, he is tortured. ਬਿਨੁ ਨਾਵੈ ਜੀਉ ਜਲਿ ਬਲਿ ਜਾਈ ॥੫॥ Without the Name, his soul cries out in agony. ||5|| What I'm getting out of that Shabad is that this battle lasts until you're at the higher stages when naam is pargat inside (usually beginning with anhad naad) Wasn't sure about this Shabad: ਸਾਕਤ ਨਿਰਗੁਣਿਆਰਿਆ ਆਪਣਾ ਮੂਲੁ ਪਛਾਣੁ ॥ You worthless, faithless cynic-recognize your own origin! ਰਕਤੁ ਬਿੰਦੁ ਕਾ ਇਹੁ ਤਨੋ ਅਗਨੀ ਪਾਸਿ ਪਿਰਾਣੁ ॥ This body is made of blood and semen. It shall be consigned to the fire in the end. ਪਵਣੈ ਕੈ ਵਸਿ ਦੇਹੁਰੀ ਮਸਤਕਿ ਸਚੁ ਨੀਸਾਣੁ ॥੫॥ The body is under the power of the breath, according to the True Sign inscribed upon your forehead. ||5|| If I find anything else I'll post it as well. Let me kno what your view is. I may be fully misinterpreting.
  3. Waheguru ji, I'm going to go very personal here so I'm hoping this stays as gupt as possible. I'm assuming no one should be able to figure out who I am behind my username. I've grown up in a lot of duality. Since I was a kid I've had huge exposure to spirituality and kaam. With Guru Sahibs kirpa I've been having spiritual experiences since I was a young kid. In innocence exploring SIkhi not only brought me onto this path but my entire family and even some of my relatives have taken amrit/walked onto this path as well. And for that I cannot thank guru sahib enough, I break into tears when I look at what state my family was in back then and what the state is now due to the love waheguru has showered me with. But on the other side I've also been addicted to kaam since a young age. I started the act of masturbating at the age of 11. I have struggled through ups and downs trying to quit. I have tried to ask for help but have been turned down multiple times. Around the time I took amrit I thought I was safe because I had a long streak going. But I ended up falling back in a few months later. My state these past few weeks has been so bad that my entire life is in dukh right now. For spirituality it's highly encouraged to save sexual fluid because this is a way of releasing energy through the nau darvajay. Even worse is that this is one of the lower nine doors. We need to focus on letting this energy travel up and be released at the dasam duar where we can enjoy the love with our husband lord. There have been times when my simran was at 3-4 hours a day and this act has completely destroyed me. My simran is at 0 right now and I'm just barely getting through nitnem. So what I've learned is that you could be experiencing crazy things while doing simran, even things that average sikhs would never believe. But the vikaars are still a battle until you reach sacha shabad (anhad naad). I've also learned that it's an even bigger battle when your spiritualities at it's peak. We'll lose some and we'll lose some and we'll keep on losing until that one day we're free from the vikaars. It's a long battle but keep faith in waheguru. I feel extremely bad for talking right now, this is a bit hypocritical because I'm in the worst state I've ever been in my life. I really want help but at the same time the only one who can help is wahguru. Waheguru has blessed you with a lot. Even just being on a spiritual path is rare in this age of kalyug, I have a lot of love for you due to the fact you're seeking help because you care more about waheguru than maya.
  4. You're 22. You have a degree and a job. It won't be as hard as it would be for a 16 year old. For me I've always been kesdhari but my haircut parents always wanted me to be a simple kesdhari sikh and nothing else. But while going through pressure and just doing things I've been able to convince them to let me do anything sikhi related. Years later, now my parents both wear turbans and will be taking amrit soon. They do bhagti and are fully walking this path of spirituality. Take one step towards your guru and he'll take 1000 towards you. Just go on with it and you'll change not just yourself but your entire family as well. I'm happy you're making this decision. Good luck, stay chardi kala. You're a blessed soul. ਵਾਹਿਗੁਰੂ ਜੀ ਕਾ ਖਾਲਸਾ ।। ਵਾਹਿਗੁਰੂ ਜੀ ਕੀ ਫਤਹਿ ।।
  5. Once you're at the avastha of rom rom this is something you're going to regret big time. Our goal is to do bhagti, whether we look good doing it or not is out of the question. No one can control what you do besides you. But at the end of the day all I'm saying is if you're serious about your sikhi and actually want to do serious bhagti, don't do this. Not just that, it also shows how much prem you have for maharaj and their decisions. There isn't really a reason to run after looks when you're in sikhi. When it comes to marriage, a true singh isn't going to run after looks - his main concern is going to be prem and naam kamai. But if I say so myself - a bit of facial hair on a singhni can be cute more than anything negative. I see mata sahib kaur in that image. An extremely power kaur with prem, compassion and justice being her main concern amongst people - not how she or anyone else looks. Just look at people like them as an example. What would mai bhago do? Stay chardi kala. Bhul chuk maaf. ਵਾਹਿਗੁਰੂ ਜੀ ਕਾ ਖਾਲਸਾ ।। ਵਾਹਿਗੁਰੂ ਜੀ ਕੀ ਫਤਹਿ ।। PS: and don't forget your simran. Close the nau darvajay and focus on the dhun.
  6. What do you guys do about your sarbloh shastars? I haven't gone swimming in ages because I'm scared my kirpan will get rusty.
  7. Just hang in there - you'll get through this
  8. VJKK VJKF I don't know how well I can help but my past is somewhat similar - I'm from a family of non-practising Sikhs (who are slowly getting into things). From personal experience I can say that because you did have a past that was a lot different, you will go through moments where you begin to miss your old life. It's maya trying to pull you back. Best you can do is do ardas daily to maharaj asking for more and more love for them. Every time you do ardas just beg them to help you develop more love. The previous lives that a lot of us had may look nice on the outside but they are only going to destroy us in the end. The goal of our life is to meet Waheguru and nothing else. Never let your mind fall into maya and forget that goal. Once you start climbing the ladder spiritually, you'll start to experience things that bring you more sukh than your older days ever brought. But to work on ourselves spiritually - we must step up the amount of simran we do or we will fall into dukh and doubts. Start watching katha as well or do anything that would help increase your love for maharaj. Personally I enjoy two things - watching mysimran.info katha and basics of sikh shabad hazare katha So basically all I'm getting at is find what sparks your love for maharaj and do it a lot. Spend lots of time in sangat and most importantly do as much simran as possible (specifically saas giras simran) and make sure you clear your mind from thoughts + focus on the sound of your voice. ਆਸਾ ਮਹਲਾ ੫ ॥ आसा महला ५ ॥ Āsā mėhlā 5.

  9. VJKK VJKF I know someone going to Delhi next month and I was hoping they'd be able to pick up a set of panj shastar because it's hard to buy them in Canada. Does anyone know if Bangla Sahib sells them? Or any place in Delhi? Bhul Chuk Maaf VJKK VJKF
  10. Prem di khaed aa It doesn't matter how much time you put in, or what time you do what. It's about the amount of love you put in. Spiritual progression comes from love and meditation, focus on creating that loving connection instead of worrying what time to do what. But the basic schedule for most people is: Waking up between 2-6 am. Starting abihas as they wake up and doing ishnaan, combing hair and brushing teeth. Sitting down and doing naam abihas for however much time they need to settle their mind (could be 5 mins, or could be an hour). Then doing at least 5 bani basic nitnem. Ardas Then doing their normal daily things but keeping their abihas going under their breath. At around 5-7 pm (before dinner) - sitting for more naam abihas and doing rehiras + ardas Then at bedtime doing rakhiya da shabad + sohila sahib and ardas. Between those times everyone's different. Find what works for you and do it with love. That is all. Bhul chuk maaf VJKK VJKF
  11. VJKK VJKF I need PDF files of Sri Dasam Granth bani with English translations. Anyone know where I could get them?
  12. I'm currently 16, turning 17 next month
  13. VJKK VJKF Lately I've been wanting to get a bit bigger and have more strength. As Sikhs we should all obviously be physically fit and tough mentally + physically. Does anyone have tips to get bigger/stronger fast? My lower legs are decently tough, but upper body (chest, arms) are a lot weaker. I've been trying to build a home gym, so far all I have is a bench, bar + weights, and a set of 20lbs dumbbells. Hopefully I'll be able to get more soon. What's best for me right now with what I have? I think for now it's good to do big weights, low reps. Post your schedules + foods you eat (on a vegetarian diet). Any help would be great. Thanks. VJKK VJKF
  14. VJKK VJKF Is it ok for us to do dissections as Amritdhari's? I'm in high school at the moment and I'm planning on going into science so I'll be seeing them a lot. Should I just stand to the side and watch or is it fine to take part? Bhul Chuk Maaf VJKK VJKF
  15. Anyone? lol
