Ardas Before Eating.

5 posts in this topic

Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh.

Saad Sangat Ji,

I just wanted to know what is the Ardas done before eating.

And if there are some lines do you just say them? or do say them in the small ardas?

Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh.

Just out of genuine curiosity,whats the significance of saying 'salok' and 'pauri'? How come its so important?

its part of the paath, makes it complete. without saying salok or pauri, the paath is not complete.

a saakhi that relates to this is when a singh came up to sant gurbachan singh ji khalsa, and asked for a shabad that would help him as he was going through some hard times in life.

sant ji told him to do sava lakh paath of "thir ghar baiso har jan piyare".

the singh went and did sava lakh paath, but he came back afterwards and told sant ji, that nothing had changed and he was still in the same situation. sant ji asked the singh how the did the paath, and he recited it infront of sant ji. the singh used to never say "gauri mahala panjva" or the word "rihao". and sant ji told him that since he didnt say all the words in the shabad, thats why the shabad was incomplete. then sant ji told the singh to do the sava lakh paath again, but this time they told him to make sure u say "gauri mahala panjva" and "rihao".

so yea, just like that, the word "salok" and "pauri" are important part of the shabad. smile.gif

Vaheguroo Jee Ka Khalsa, Vaheguroo Jee Kee Fateh,

Can someone please translate into English and transliterate into Roman the Ardaas before and after eating that was posted by _shastr_? The one with the salok and pauri. Or at least post where I can find those online? I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you.

Gurfateh,

Justin

    • Yeah it does man. You need to keep Amritvela, it's a rule not a guideline. The whole point of it is discipline and starting your day with Satguru Ji's blessing.
    • Here's a mind dump of my thoughts as fast I can get them out as I should be doing something else when I write this post!!! (i.e. work!!) The importance of AmritVela can't be under estimated There wont be any "progression" without it Progression only comes from Guru's grace but Guru jee is looking for your effort That said executive orders/Nadar/glances of grace from Maharaj can waiver all situations but to depend on this should be frowned upon as Maharaj wants effort I heard in a katha once that a person who bows before the Guru, physically or mentally, during Amritvela wont have to bow/seek the help of others  The ultimate way to get up at AmritVela is have to a huge amount of Prem for Maharaaj However, sustaining Prem and therefore AmritVela in my experience is very hard and depends on your circumstances - e.g. where you are in your journey, your environment, your habits/lifestyle/the company you have etc  the day before AmritVela plays a big part on whether you'll wake up and get up at AmritVela e.g. watching Game of Thrones at 10pm the night before will have an impact!! How hungry are you for it? I would try to avoid the question of is AmritVela a requirement.  Try your best to "do" AmritVela in whatever way you can. Don't be lazy but don't beat yourself up about it either as it could hamper motivation. Ultimately Maharaj knows your situation.
    • I agree that the older lot were more clued up and also thought ahead as opposed to the younger kharkoos being short sighted and ready to become shaheed. From what I know of Sohan is that he later on stage possibly in 98 addressed the GOI type of crowd with 'Jai Hind' while he also retracted that he ever was a Khalistani. 
    • Yes it makes sense, but does the same apply to an amritdhari?
    • People cut Kesh for appearance purposes, there really isn't much more than that, Sikh or Non-Sikhs. Some monks however, completely shave their head, but they are the exception not the rule.
