  1. I m not going to go into detail as to how and why i have dusht dokhis against me. But i do, a LOT in office. I am harassed regularly and since their numbers are more, I am quite apprehensive of complaining to boss or HR. I have cursed them multiple times, Now i feel like doing an ardas to waheguru that may i see these peoples downfall happening in front of me. I know sikhs believe in sarbat da bhala but with such colleagues from hell , I am wondering if sarbat da bhala is really an option. I don't wanna go towards black magic because it will have a karmic effect on me I just wanna do an ardaas in front of satgura that may he punish these dusht dokhian. May i see their downfall in front of me, while i am in office.
  2. I was asking this because I wanted to know why Vaheguru sometimes doesn't listen to Ardas? (And other times does) even though he can hear the Ardas and knows what's going on.

  4. ਅਰਜਨ ਹਰਗੋਬਿੰਦ ਨੋ ਸਿਮਰੌ ਸ੍ਰੀ ਹਰਿਰਾਇ॥ ਸ੍ਰੀ ਹਰਿਕ੍ਰਿਸ਼ਨ ਧਿਆਇਐ ਜਿਸ ਡਿਠੈ ਸਭਿ ਦੁਖ ਜਾਇ॥ Arjan Hargobind no simro Sree Har Raae. Sree Har-Kishan d'hiaa-ee-aae jis dit'haae sabhe dukhe jaa-aae Ardas The word Ardâs ( ਅਰਦਾਸ ) is derived from the Persian word 'Arazdashat', meaning a request, a supplication, a prayer, a petition or an address to a superior authority. It is a Sikh prayer that is a done before performing or after undertaking any significant task; after reciting the daily Banis (prayers); or completion of a service like the Paath, kirtan (hymn-singing) program or any other religious program. In Sikhism, these prayers are also said before and after eating. The prayer is a plea to God to support and help the devotee with whatever he or she is about to undertake or has done. The Ardas is usually done standing up with 'folded hands'. The beginning of the Ardas is strictly set by the tenth Sikh Guru, Guru Gobind Singh. When it comes to the conclusion of this prayer, the devotee uses: The word Waheguru - "Waheguru please bless me in the task that I am about to undertake" when starting a new task. Or the words Akal Purakh - "Akal Purakh, having completed the hymn-singing, we ask for your continued blessings so that we can continue with your memory and remember you at all times". Ardas is a unique prayer based on the fact that it is one of the few, well-known prayers in the Sikh religion that was not written in its entirety by the Gurus. The Ardas cannot be found within the pages of the Guru Granth Sahib due to the fact that it is a continually changing devotional text that has evolved over time in order for it to encompass the feats, accomplishments, and feelings of all generations of Sikhs within its lines. Taking the various derivation of the word, Ardas into account, the basic purpose of this prayer is an appeal to Waheguru for his protection and care, a plea for the welfare and prosperity of all mankind, and a means for the Sikhs to thank Waheguru for all that he has done. http://www.sikhiwiki.org/index.php/Ardas
  5. Waheguru When we do ardas 'pratham bhaguti simr ki' at gurdwara we 'matha tak' couple of times. Does anyone know when this tradition started of doing matha tak, was it during the Guru period or after. Also, the panth added more to the ardas in the early 1900s, how did they get everyone to matha tak after the dohra was read 'sab sikhan ko hukam hai gur manu granth'. Also is there any historical granth that tells how the ardas was performed during the Gurus time or after Waheguru
  6. Could anyone tell me what the ending of ardas is called and perhaps have a link to the words? I'm referring to 7:15 of the video on wards: If anyone could help me I would be very grateful. Thank you!
  7. This was an issue that I was thinking about and felt like that Waheguru sometimes ignore the simple Ardas that we can say. Does anyone have an answer as to why that is?

  9. I have come across 2 different ways Singhs end Ardas One is where they recite "ਸੇਈ ਪਿਆਰੇ ਮੇਲ ਜਿਨਾ ਮਿਲੀਆਂ ਤੇਰਾ ਨਾਮ ਚਿਤ ਆਵੈ" (please forgive and correct spelling error) Another is "ਅੜੇ ਸੋ ਝੜੇ, ਜੋ ਸ਼ਰਨ ਆਵੈ ਸੋ ਤਰੈ" (please forgive and correct spelling error) I was wondering if we have to do either one, or both can be recited? And I think in any case they are recited right before "Nanak Naam Chardi Kala".
  10. Vaheguru jee, We all say Ardaas every day. However, when said in sangat I never know what to say in the personal part. Especially as my Punjabi isn't great, by myself I say what I want of course but in sangat it seems people have a set thing to say (eg. please keep us in good sangat, help us with Amrit vela, etc). I know some Gutke Sahibs include this within them. Where can I read one of these so I get a better idea of what to say?
  11. I was just wondering if anyone in the sangat knows the importance of having a palla ( cloth in your neck) when doing your path or ardas? I have tried wearing a palla and I honestly feel that it does have an impact on me thank maharaj however I really want to know what the reason behind it is ?

  13. i need help. i need to find the effect of ardas on the sangat.
  14. Dear Sangatji Please can you do ardas/naam simran for the innocent children and families being killed in Syria, so sad what's happening Viaguruji ka khalsa Viaguruji ka fateh
  15. Vaheguru ji ka Khalsa Vaheguru ji ki Fateh I have a request to all to the sangat; I have a pet living with me, and he is hurt, can you please do ardaas for his quick recovery, as well as his joon-mukhti (free from the 84lakh joon). I would apperciate if you remember him in your ardaas. Please refrain from any stupid posts - dharam (faith) is the son of compassion, and if you don't have compassion then... Dhanvaad. Benti to mods, please move this to correct topic.
  16. waheguru ji ka khalsa waheguru ji ki fateh I have learnt the ardaas ritual by observing sangat in the gurdwara- when to kneel, when to rise etc. Outside of the gurdwara, I do a personal and long ardaas (conversation with God) without the standard structure present in gutka sahibs. However now I am learning the ardaas, for the sake of community harmony and in case my services ever are called upon, I need to be able to perform the ritual correctly, but I don't know what is actually happening during ardaas. Please help me understand. Questions: - What is the reason for standing and folding hands? - After 'sarbat da bhala', who are we kneeling to? Since I have only been part of ardaas at the gurdwara- I have assumed this is matha tek to Guru sahib who is present, is this correct? Or is it like muslims bowing to God during their prayer ritual? When ardaas is performed outside the gurdwara and whenever Guru sahib is not present, does one still do matha thek to the floor? - Why do we kneel and stand up twice (before and after Fateh)? - When is 'Sab sikhan ko hukam hain..' to be said? I cannot find this hymn in my gutka sahib. - Or if you have time, please could you describe the full ritual in detail with spiritual explanations to each action. Much appreciated. waheguru ji ka khalsa waheguru ji ki fateh
  17. ✿✿✿✿ 4788 ✿✿✿✿ Sangat Ji, Bibi Jagjeet Kaur Ji from Sacramento is suffering from a rare form of cancer, The doctors have said that only divine intervention can save her from this fast spreading disease. It is a request to please do as many mool mantar jaaps as possible for her chardikala and please do ardas for her deh-arogta (recovery from disease) Please post the number of mool mantar jaaps done for her on this thread so that a collective ardas can be done on sangat's behalf. For those who are not familiar with this chardikala singhnee, here is her story from her own pen:
  18. Sangat Ji... Can you all please help and do a ardas for my sister health. she has lymphoma cancer and has a scan tomorrow to show her tumour has shrank. We pray to Waheguruji that this is the case else the consultant has said there is nothing else they can do. My sister is not even 40 and has two very young kids and is a very good person. Please help me Sangat Ji. Thanks you.
  19. Hi My fiance is going to court and if found guilty could be facing a few years. To what extent can you do ardas for someone else, for Waheguru to look after them and not let it happen? He doesn't practice Sikhi much but I am going to encourage him to start doing seva. I guess what I am trying to ask is, if I keep my own rehat strong and then pray for him, could Waheguru help me? Thanks
