  1. Nitnem

    Hello, I am new to Sikhism and have been learning and practicing to the best of my ability for the past 4 months. I have been doing Nitnem, but I think I am somewhat unorthodox in my approach - while I think it works for me and thus I will keep doing it this way (at least for now), I wanted to get opinions from the group and maybe some advice on how I could make my Nitnem more effective. I usually wake around 4-430. In order to fit Nitnem into my morning I listen to the morning banis while I am getting ready in the morning - usually while I work out (I work out at home and it is very quiet and peaceful) and eat breakfast. I follow that with Simran before going to work. In the evening I listed Rehras Sahib during my commute home and before bed I listen to Kirtan Sohila (usually do Simran again after dinner). In the beginning I used to listen to the english translation of the banis and read the english Kirtan Sohila, but now I list to the Gurmukhi of all the banis. For now, I think it works for me as it fills me with peace and calm while I listen and my thoughts are on Waheguru while I listen. I would like to know what people thought of this and if this seems appropriate. Ultimately I would like to be able to memorize the banis in their Gurmukhi, as well as the meaning without having to utilize the english translation in my Nitnem prayer book (I am already starting by learning Mul Mantra and also following along with the Gurmukhi romanized script while I listen to Kirtan Sohila). At the moment I am finishing a veterinary residency program and am a new father, so I am trying my best with a busy schedule - but looking forward to devoting more time to practice when I finish my residency in 5 months! Thank you for taking the time to reading and replying (if you do). Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa, Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh. - I
  2. Nitnem of gursikhs/sants

    Hey guys, I've searched everywhere but can not find nitnem of famous Sikhs. Could you guys put the nitnem of, Bhai Sahib Randhir Singh Ji, Sant Harnam Singh ji and other gursikhs/sants, also put in how long they did naam simran, or mool mantra.
  3. I forgot my account password and email lol so I have to make this here. I am personally gonna follow this (as soon as I learn how to read gurmukhi properly) This is just an idea but I think everyone should follow this, this is mainly for weekends because then you wont be able to get enough sleep. 2:30am to 3am - Waheguru or Mool Mantar( Not required but its good to do) 3 am to 4 am - 5 banis, Japji Sahib, Jaap Sahib, Tav Prasad Saveya and Chaupi Sahib, this includes (kirpa kiree ham par jag mata) 4am to 4:15 - Shabad Hazaree and Shabad Hazaree Patshai 10 (Do Both) 4:15 am to 5:30 am - Akal Ustad (Takes around 1 hour 10 min to do so you can do Brahm Kavach (32 times)) or any other Dasam Granth Bani (Like Chandi Di Vaar). Must be Dasam Granth Bani though..... 5:30 am to 6:45 am - Sukhmani Sahib Then do ardas And if you have time 6:45 am to 7:30 - Asa di vaar Then in the evening 5 pm to 5:15- Rehras Sahib (Including Chaupi Sahib (including kirpa kiree ham par jag mata) and Anand Sahib (the short one)) 5:15pm to 5:25pm - Aarti paath 5:25pm to 6:40pm - Sukhmani Sahib Then ardas Then at night Kirtan Sohila I put Akal Ustad because I have heard it is equal to 16000 Waheguru Jaaps can someone confirm? What do you guys think about this? and dont start a Dasam Granth Bani argument.
  4. Does any gurmukh pyaara know the full nihang amritvela nitnem? (Based on the budhadal or tarnadal rehat)

  9. Nitnem and bani

    WJKK WJKF, thought it would be beautiful if we all could ANONYMOUSLY share the banis we have added to nitnem or how much abhyaas we have, to inspire and be inspired! Feel free to keep identity gupt
  10. 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.
  11. Apart from the sundar gutka app which is great but I want a book copy.
  12. I was wondering what the length of Rehras Sahib was especially since different people end it at different times.
  13. Jaap Sahib is the morning prayer of the Sikhs. The Prayer or Bani was composed by the tenth Sikh Master, Guru Gobind Singh. This Bani is one of 5 Banis that a Sikh must recite everyday and is recited by the Panj Pyare while preparing Amrit on the occasion of Amrit Sanchar (initiation), a ceremony held to admit initiates into the Khalsa. The Jaap Sahib is chronologically the first Bani (holy hymn of Guru) in the Dasam Granth, which is said to have been compiled by Bhai Mani Singh around the year 1734. The Jaap Sahib is reminiscent of Japji Sahib, and is chronologically recited at second, in the daily morning prayer of a Sikh. ਕਿ ਆਗੰਜ ਕਰਮੈ ॥ ਕਿ ਆਭੰਜ ਭਰਮੈ ॥੧੦੩॥ Ki Aaganja Karami ॥ Ki Aabhaanja Bharami ॥103॥ कि आगंज करमै ॥ कि आभंज भरमै ॥१०३॥ That Thou art beyond impact of Karmas. That Thou art free from doubts.103.

    Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa, Waheguru Ji Ke Fateh I've spoken about me wanting to take Amrit at some point soon before in a previous post. I just wanted to know as I do 8am to 8pm is there anyone who does these kind of odd shifts and how do you do the Nitnem, especially around Amritvela. Do you guys feel tired? how so you cope? Also I need to lose weight as well so need to start exercising a bit cos I need to go Gurudwara and don't want to say Waheguru followed by ' OH GODAI DUKTDAI'.(Kknees are hurting) Because with shame, i used to avoid going at all cost and know I feel i need to be in sangat more often. Final Question what is the closest Gurudwara near the City (Bank, Tower hill etc) anyone go near here at all?

  17. Hi, After trying to get an app for Android to show nitnem prayers, I was very dissapointed to see some apps showing advertisements with prayers. This is very distracting for me and most likely other persons. I created apps for Android and Firefox mobile devices which can be found here: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=org.malton.nitnem&hl=en https://marketplace.firefox.com/app/nitnem-sikh-prayers?src=search Furthermore, because the firefox app is web based, I also deployed the website http://www.nitnem.net with the same texts. All texts are shown in similar format with gurmukhi, then transliteration and then translation. These texts are based on those found on http://fateh.sikhnet.com/s/DownloadBanis and http://www.gurbanifiles.org/pocket_pc/index.htm and required formatting to a text and then coding of java code to make it html based as well as javascript to render correctly with options such as Larger/Smaller Text and Night Reading Mode. Note that there are no advertisements or never will be any advertisements or any cost whatsoever. I am doing this completely for free. The texts included so far are the following: - Japjee Saahib (Japji Sahib) - Shabad Hazaaray (Shabad Hazare) - Jaapu Saahib (Jaap Sahib) - Tav Parsaad Svaye - Kabyo Bach Baynti Chaupai - Anand Saahib (Anand Sahib) - Rehraas Saahib (Rehras Sahib) - Ardas - Sohilaa (Sohila) - Baareh Maahaa - Sukhmani Sahib - Assa Dee Vaar (Asa Ki Vaar) - Sidh Gost - Artee - Lawa Please do advise your opinions on this matter. Also advise if any further texts should be included or any other improvements that could occur.
  18. Schedule Of A Gursikh

    WJKK WJKF, I am 14 years old, trying to become a real Sikh. I just wanted to know how other Gursikhs spend their day on Sikhi, such as the time they wake up and the banis they do and when they sleep and everything that happens in your day. I just wanted to see if I can model it. Please also provide the times, so that I know how much time it takes for each part of the schedule. Bul Chuk Maaf Kareo. Thank you very much.
  19. Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa, Waheguru Ji Kee Fateh, Sorry for any of my mistakes. I am only 14 years old and I hear a lot about how simran is important and it helps us attain waheguru. But I don't know how to do it. Whenever I hear a katha, they always explain why we should do it, not how ot do it. Please tell me what I need to do. I tried listening many times to Bhai Harjinder Singh Ji Sri Nagar Wale's Waheguru jaap kirtan because I like it but the problem is that after doing it, I don't feel anything. I don't even get that feeling like I did something. Please help me. Thank you very much.

  22. Nitnem Bani

    wjkk wjkf, does anyone have audio recordings of nitnem banis? I am after the recordings which show how each bani is suppposed to be recited i.e. using correct raag and rythmn I heard somewhere that Tav Prasad Swaiye is recited as if there are soldiers marching onto a battle field, similarly each chaand in sri jaap sahib should be recited according to a different rythmn and each with a different pentra. Could anyone help? wjkk wjkf
  23. Advice Please

    i just wanted some advice . I do nitnem but i find it extremely difficult to focus my mind. Ill try to keep it still but before i Know it my minds off wondering and by the time i notice the baani is complete. I've recently been reading saakiya and listening to katha and the funny thing is its always happened to be about how important it is to focus the mind. Ive learnt that there's no point without focusing the mind as you may physically be doing baani but the mind and attention is elsewhere so you cannot achieve salvation, but i dont know how to stop this happening? I've tried and tried but i can't find an answer. I've had quite a bit happen recently and I've found peace at waheguru jis feet and i really dont want to loose it all now . sometimes i feel so upset i just want to cry and to be honest i dont know why i feel this. Sometimes it happens at random moments. When i cry i try to think about god and relate my tears to that but honestly i dont know the reason behind it. Am i sad upset or lonely or feeling peace? i just dont know I also feel very down when i argumentatively answer back to someone and feel as if all that i have gained is lost this also puts me down Im so worried as ive found the true Guru but just dont want to loose him again. I also have this problem of telling little harmless white lies . say i had the last choco in the box and someone asked did you have it ill just automatically say No. I know its no bigy but i know myself and i know all these little lies will built in confidence and devil in me to tell bigger lies. I do it so unintentionally and i just dont know how to stop it?
  24. Sangat ji, Does anyone know of any guru ghars that have Amritvela nitnem/simran sessions? I'd be grateful for you could share frequency/time/location details. VJKK VJKF
  25. Waheguru ji ka khalsa waheguru ji ki fathe I am a basic Sikh girl who has a strong typical Indian family, began speaking to a guy on fb, he was a amritdhari Sikh from india it slowly went on whatsapp and falling in love. The problem was that my family firstly would disagree to me talking to boys online and secondly they would never agree on me getting married to a boy from India who is from a different caste. Okay so my family found out and took my phone away and told me to stop and i have agreed to stop. I have begun to realise that i know i do love him but not as much as i thought i think its more that i enjoyed the feeling of having that loving relationship, so now i have learnt to divert my attention to maharaj as i have also had very unexpected close family deaths recently, so i understand that everything here is materialistic and will not stay. Also now that my phone has gone the main barrier between me and sikhi has gone because i did not have time for anything else as most my time use to be on my phone I now do my - 5 baaniya at amritvela -wear a kashera -do other paat in the day if i can -read saakhiya of Guru Nanak Dev ji (which help me incredibly) but sometimes i end up thinking about him and from my fiends account (who he knew also) i message him as if i am my friend telling him that i'm really upset and miss him (which i do badly at times),,, please can anyone suggest anything to help me stop please? Because im planning to be a amritdhari soon so i want to live a honest life with no secrets or lies ! Also i have another query, basically when i do paat i always feel that my mind somehow no matter how much i try to stop it starts to wonder. This even happens at Amritvela and as i want to be amritdahri i really want to be proper because i do have family who is amritdhari but do not live strictly to the rehat such as sometimes lack out on getting gurbani done (i know im not perfect either but saad-sangat ji please i really want to be as good as possible. I do not want people to look at me and think that im in chardikala and feel guilty, i want to be as i appear - a true gursikh ) One last question i just wanted to know that sometimes i do paat and feel happy that i am doing paat and it does have a positive effect on me so i try to be calm all day and kind and giving towards everyone. This mostly means i do all the household chores because i know i have time in which i can do them and whereas the rest of my family is busy working or doing something or another. I do feel happy that i do this and sometimes i think and feel as if im really good and that i think not a lot of other people would do what i am. I am worried in case i get haumai and egoistic ? Like maharaj ji says haumai will defeat all the purpose of doing sewa! So please Guru pyareo any tips ? Lastly i am a young Sikh girl and soon want to start tying a dummalla any really good videos of medium sized dummale pleaaaassssssssssseeeee??? THANK YOU SO MUCH. I hope Guru ji blesses each and every person as we say in the ardas "Nanak naam chardi kala tere bane sarbat da bhala " Waheguru ji :biggrin2:
