Only Gurus gyaan works not ours,look to Guru Ji not to one’s own foolish mind because that will lead you astray every time. Above reply has said correct, Guru Ji is our Jagdhi Jyote, we get all our gyaan from our Guru, He leads us to the path of mukti then we will do His sewa from Maan and Tann. You are mistaken if you think Sikh is just within the confines of the Gurdwara, Gurbani says – Joe Brahnunday soi pinday. Everything you see (and don’t see) in the universe is right within us. Those fools only see symbols do not know the adh Shakti that is Guru Granth Sahib Ji.
Those who have no gyaan, so avastha, no naam, no simran see rituals, those who have see their Guru. So you don’t keep your phone in AC, who told you to have Guru Granth Sahib Ji on your phone in the first place ? Guru Arjan Dev Ji used to sleep on the floor while Adh Granth Sahib Ji was always on a higher level, the Gurus led by example such a pity we cannot follow.
The mind wonders in meditation just as it does when doing paath. Guru Je says, Saas saas simro Gobind . . .
Repeat His name with every breath you take. Guru Ji says over and over again repeat His name repeat His name – Naam Simran paath never let one breath go without His name on it, meditating on nothingness will bring you nothing.
4 Then you have not understood your Guru. Who is in nature ? Who created nature? Who created these laws? One leaf cannot move in the wind without His say so. We are all on a journey, some have progressed (and will ask for Naam Simran, and everything else will follow automatically) others have a way to go (they ask for worldly things), it is the foolish who look upon them with disdain for they themselves have not progresses far but are in the clutches of Hunkaar. As we progress so we see that the only thing to ask for (and why shouldn’t we ask – Guru Ji says Tumai shaad koi avar naa dhyao, joe barr chau so tum tay pao – Benti Chaupau – I will not leave you for anyone else and any thing I need I will remember you) are Naam and bhagti.
5 Guru Ji created many sampardhama, 22 munjies where set up by Guru Amar Das Ji, Damadami Taksal was created by Guru Ji. Infact we now have Sikhi which is being eaten from the inside by a cancer by those who call themselves the new reformers, who question every aspect of Sikhi, they started with Dasam Granth Sahib Ji and are slowly making their way to Guru Granth Sahib Ji please be aware of them.
