  1. Treating Gurbani

    VJKK VJKF Sangat Ji, I just found a book a few minutes ago where I'd been writing Vaheguru in Gurmukhi and there's many, many pages of it. It's a lined paper notebook with only gurmantar in it. My room is the highest in the whole house but I know that means nothing in terms of the satkaar I should give bani. Please tell daas what to do with the book Ji. I don't want to burn the book but if I can't keep it properly I understand that I'll have to burn it. Maaf karna Ji - the only thing I can think of it is to burn the book but I start to well up every time I flick through the pages and see the bani and I am so in love with the gurmantar I don't want to burn it but I understand that the satkaar is more important. Vaheguru Ji.
  2. What is "NAAM"

    Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa, Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh! What is "NAAM"? Gurbani.org in an article basically states that Naam is knowledge Link to article: https://www.gurbani.org/gurblog/gurbani-defines-naam/ While other sources state that Naam is just the name of god. My question is simple: What is "NAAM"??
  3. doing naam at work

    So i work in a bank full of goreh and non-religous people. These people dont understand my faith (i'm sikh btw) and i just about started understanding it very recently. I heard about naam and this whole idea of reciting the name of god. I try to do this at work now and again but i had a question... the goreh will tell me to stop talking or give me very funny looks (already have got them lol) when/if they hear me doing naam. So i do it very very very quietly almost to the point where i can't hear the sound of naam but my lips and tongue and everything are still doing naam. sometimes i can hear myself but most times i can just feel my breathe leaving my lips as i breathe doing naam. Is this okay? i can't be loud or any louder than i am. please help! thanks
  4. The Experience Of Naam

    A video of Satpal Singh from Nanak Naam Youtube channel explaining the TRUE way Naam is experienced.
  5. The 5 Senses

    We use the 5 senses to collect information about the world and perceive reality within our minds. Or in other words, the senses make us aware of the world around us. And we have no control over ourselves so that our senses influence our mind and make us do paaps. Using naam we can purify our mind, and senses, and get rid of the diseases associated with each and become jeevan mukt and truly see God throughout the world. But what is the sense that allows us to be aware of God at all times and experience God. Is it Dasam Dwar? If it is, how much abhiyaas must one do to open it? Does anyone have anything specific in mind?
  6. VJKK VJKF Daas has a question and Maharaj kirpa, Waheguru's sangat can help. I have missed out on doing a lot of simran over past few days but Maharaj kirpa I have been replacing that with a lot of paath. Does this paath take the place of that simran that I haven't been doing? I've heard from many people that there is no difference but I haven't had a certain answer of no from anywhere. Can anyone shed some light on this please? Vaheguru Ji.
  7. Naam

    VJKK VJKF Well, today I was doing naam abiyaas but instead of feeling that feeling of concentration I felt like crying but at the same time I felt love (for vaheguru) I felt as if I was putting my heart and soul into it but the thing I don't understand is why did I feel like crying, I felt like my heart was breaking but I don't know why. Surely I should've just felt happy? Does anyone know what I am going through and if it is actually a real thing to feel and if anyone has felt this before? VJKK VJKF
  8. ਵਾਹਿਗੁਰੂਜੀਕਾਖਾਲਸਾਵਾਿਹਗੁਰੂਜੀਕੀਫਤਹਿ॥ Can someone please explain what paaras kala is, and also how could one experience this? Also, what heppens during the paaras kala of Naam? thanks
  9. Saas giras simran help!!

    When i do saas giras simran, i feel as if there is no body any more and i get scared when i lose the senses for a few moments. I feel only sound and thats it. Once i open my eyes i have to feel my surroundings because i have to get back into the other senses of the body and try to become aware of the world again and if i am here. i get depersonalisation. Can someone help. What is happening to me and what do i do??
  10. Lucid dreaming is an experience where you are aware that you're dreaming. So this means that you have full control of your dream at that moment. At this point, the physical body is completely asleep and can also be in the state of sleep paralysis. Therfore, you cannot move in the real world. By my own experience, you are able to do anything you desire in the dream world. Anything is possible, so we can warp reality and change our surrounding at will. My question is: Can we do naam simran in this state? Can i create a situation where i am sitting in sangat japping gurmantar? If so, i can be concious and aware whilst doing this all night until my physical body wakes up. Also, in the lucid dream world there is no physical body, meaning that we are within a state of mind. So the Gyan Indria are completely closed and will not interfere in what we are doing. Does this mean i am able to open dasam duaar easier at this point if i clear mind mind and do simran with 100% focus?
  11. A recording of Sant Mani Singh Ji talking about Sikhi, Naam and Gurbani. This very unique and special Enlightened being is the first brahmgyani to be born in England (outside of India). https://youtu.be/Swpq55f3msc
  12. So during amritvela last night I started my naam simran and about 30 mins into I could feel a pull in the middle of forehead. Then all of sudden I start spinning like the conscious in my head is spinning. And I'm still repeating vaheguru, it felt very good and very uplifting but my question is.. is this normal and does this mean I'm progressing ?
  13. I am asking this question as I am unsure as to whether Shaheed Singh's or Kaur's actually get mukht/liberated from becoming shaheed, as Gurbani provides no evidence of this? I understand that the Chali Mukte got liberated by Satguru Sri Gobind Singh Ji, and other shaheeds like Baba Banda Singh Bahadur. But lets forget puratan times because I know all the shaheeds then were brahm gianis but what about from 1984 and ownards? The reason I am asking this is because I recently attended an akath katha where the guy was standing up and explaining how to meet Vaheguru through Gurbani. He even went to explain what manmat is, showing a presentation slide full of manmat 'tools' like a mala and presented Gurbani pangtiya which state and show that using a mala is wrong. However what struck me most is when the guy doing the katha clearly stated that someone who becomes 'shaheed' will not get liberated and not meet Truth, as they have not recognized naam. As before, he presented the Gurbani pangti to prove what he is saying. I can't remember the pangti in Gurmukhi but it translates in English to something like "and they who die on the battlefield, will also not become liberated". It translated to something along those lines. I personally think that he misused the pangti to suit his own needs for the sake of the presentation. But thats what I want to know, is it true that a Shaheed won't get mukht? Is he just dying for the sake of the panth? However before I heard many times that Guru Gobind Singh Ji said something along the lines of "He who dies fighting for the panth will instantly get a throne in my kingdom, or God's kingdom" even though I haven't found a direct source to this. Is this true? Did Satguru Ji say this? I'm surprised nobody in the sangat spoke out against this, they all seemed to be under some kind of control as they guy seemed pretty intimidating to say the least.

  15. There are several ways to do Naam Jaap. Saint and Bhagats connect with the almighty by remembering Akal Purakh Wahe Guru. There is no best way to connect with God but useful tips come in handy when a person is just starting out. Bhai Sahib Bhai Vir Singh in his book Gurmukh Sikhiya provides some ways to make it easier to do Naam Jaap. Bhai Vir Singhs helpful advice comes from puratan Singhs whove reached the ultimate stage of Naam Jaap and felt Wahe Guru. 1) Rest is important Bhai Vir Singh recommends getting at least 7-8 hours of sleep everyday. He says if the body is rested only then you can spiritually be healthy enough to connect with Wahe Guru. 2) Healthy Diet Its important to have a simple and healthy diet. He states its important to not eat heavy foods and important to maintain a healthy diet. He recommends preventing constipation with a balanced diet. 3) Kesh Ishnaan twice a week. Bhai Vir Singh states that its very important to wash your hair at least once a week and recommends twice. 4) Satsang One must do Satsang with Sadh Sangat as Guru is always found among the Sangat. 5) Do Naam Jaap with Rasna, positive thoughts Naam simran will automatically start to happen once it gets absorbed in the mind and body. Rhythm and concentration will take it time but continuous sessions of naam jaap will cause it to be consistent and automatic. This is when Naam Maala will become day and night and you will be doing Naam Simran 24/7. 6) Stay away from bad influences Its important to stay away from negative influences and people. 7) Reaching higher stage A person will realize when he/she has reached an out of body stage. Once this stage is reached, its important to be careful when taking a leap into the next stage. To avoid feelings of hunger, its important to eat a good diet. 8) Prevent Imagination from running wild A person must not ponder and stay away from creating unnecessary imagination that can steer person away from Naam Simran. Love of Wahe Guru must always increase and desire to do more Naam has to continue. Once a person has achieved higher levels of Naam Jaap, its important to help others connect and obtain a higher lever of spirituality. Those who do Seva and help others connect with Wahe Guru are the ideal GurSikhs. These are the people who are blessed and bless others.

  17. In Memory of Shahibzadey Shaheedi, Naam Simran Smagam is happening at Darbar Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji, Walsall, West-Midlands. Sangat Ji, We are fast approaching the 'festive season' again this year, but what does this time of the year really mean for Sikhs? This is the time of the year that one of the biggest sacrifices in history was given by our father Dhan Guru Gobind Singh Ji Maharaj. In the month of Poh Maharaj sacrificed his four sons, his mother and countless Sikhs in the name of dharam. This was the fulfilment of a promise Guru Gobind Singh Ji made in 1699 when he, as Guru, knelt down in front of the Panj Pyaare and begged them for the gift of Amrit. The Panj asked Guru Sahib what he will give to receive this Amrit and Maharaj said they will sacrifice their entire family to get this divine gift. In memory of this Baljit Singh will be doing a daily katha over 13 Days telling the full story. This is part of the Naam Simran Smagam being held at the Gurdwara. Full details are below please be sure to attend! 19th December to 31st December. Daily smagam program: morning Simran 5am-6am & evening simran 7am-8pm 13 Larivaar Shaheedi Katha 8pm-8.30pm Darbar Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji, Rollingmill Street, Walsall, WS2 9EQ Maharaj has given and today continues to give so much for us, this time of year is a perfect time for us all to reflect on what we have really sacrificed to Maharaj. Please make effort to attend and share with others, it is so important that we all know about this chapter in our history!
