Khalsa Ji

Anand is very difficult to describe in terms of words. Imagine the following scenario:

A young child , who cannot yet speak , is given something very pleasant to eat. Then the child is asked to describe the taste. The only indications available would be the child's smile , glowing face , and self satisfaction since the child does not have the ability to describe it verbally. The state of Anand is similar to that.

With regards to spiritual phall , one will feel increased self confidence. The mann becomes more focused. The mann's desires will begin to be fulfilled automatically {ridh sidh}. Life generally will become more blissful. One will feel closer to Sat chit Anand Ishvar {eternal bliss}.

What time frame should one complete 125,000 jaaps in

If you were to do 3 hours a day (at a rate of 6 per minute) you would be able to complete 125,000 in under 6 months.

Regarding which shabad, all Gurbani will do our bhala. In the end, you are more likely to stick to the abhiyaas if you pick a shabad that you feel connected to :)

Personally, I feel closer to mool mantr and JupJi Sahib. That is probably because I have heard some katha on both and can understand a bit better. Regardless of which shabad you decide on, I would strongly recommend that you listen to it's katha first so you can understand slightly deeper meanings. Then when reciting, focus on the meanings. This has a HUGE impact and keep the mind focused. Giani Thakur Singh Jee has said many times in katha, 'man ta artha vich hi tikda' (the mind becomes stable only when focusing on meanings)

If you were to do 3 hours a day (at a rate of 6 per minute) you would be able to complete 125,000 in under 6 months.

At that pace, wouldn't it take just under 4 months?

6 per minute =

360 per hour (6/min*60mins) =

1,080 per day (360/hr * 3 hours) =

32,400 per month (1080/day * 30 days) (assuming 30 day month for simplicity) =

129,600 in 4 months (32,400/month * 4 months)

Or have I forgotten how to do simple math too :(

Gurfathe,

I have heard that a lot of mahapursha prescribe the recitation of the following shabad:

Gauree M5

Thir kar baiso har jan pyaare

Satgur tumre kaaj savare rehao

Dusht doot parmeshar maare

Jan ki paij rakhi kartaare

Baadshah sah sabh vas kar deene

Amrit naam maha ras peene

Nirbhau hoye bhajo bhagwan

Saadh-sangat mil keeno daan

Saran pare prabh antarjaami

Nanak ot pakri prabh suami

In fact it was when I was trying to find out more about this shabad that I came across this thread. Does anyone know the sakhi behind this shabad or why it is so reverred?

Gurfathe

I no the topic is 125000 but try 250,000 moolmantar jaaps the feeling and love you feel is beyond words. If you do 30 maalas (108 moolmantars per maala) the jaap takes about 40-50 days (can't remeber exact amount off top of my head). You will not want to stop literally :) start on say 2 maalas a day and build up. Just do a purely deep from the heart ardass before you start :) guru je like always will hold you and help you complete the jaap. All the best jeo

doing any jaap tha many times is a gupt seva. so suppose its ok posting it here, but, its best to ask your guru which shabad to do.. there are lots of jaaps to do. its not wise to do jaap of shabads that many times as u do defo get 'gifets' from guru G. and if u duno why u gona do the jaap, n ur just picking a shabad at random, who is to say you will know n understand what you recieve from guru G? like, there are shabads that will make your tongue silver. i.e. anyhting you say will come true. and if u duno what ur doing (as in the shabad), and you say summin 'galat', (rong), to somone, and its comes true, then its on you!

this is why you go to a maha purash to get a shabad,as they know what is for you. posting onthis forum, yes it helps.. but u cant jus go n do whatever shabad.. (thas my point). :)

so either u hear an amazing shabad, and it hits your heart n u do that shabad, (cuz ur ready for it as gurur G has allowed your ardaas to becom complete and has let that specific shabad hit your heart, hence you can do that shabad as its approved by guru G), or jus go to maha purash (sant - a proper one)..

har jun aisa chaaheya, jaisa har! he! hoee!

gurfateh!

Why only 125,000 times? Why not 126,000 times? God forbid you lose count. I hope you attain whatever blessings you are seeking.

i used to think that too, but for the standard person remembering God 24/7 is very difficult to start off with. I'm not there, but can certainly say it's more achievable by carrying these Jaaps of 125,000,etc. As at first they are just a goal, a number, but it sort of forces you to stick to the Jaap and carry out a certain number a day for example.

This Jaap then develops, as it says in JapJi Sahib, 'Gaveeai Suneeai Man Rakheeai Bhau'. We must sing/recite first. Whether that be all day singing Kirtan or all day doing a sava lakh jaap.

I personally see it as a tool to make things easier.

Sorry for any mistakes.

very good veechar above. Ive met two singhs who have both done sava lakh chaupai sahib and both are in great chardi kalla

IMHO: whatever shabad you do abyaas of you will obtain the sidhi (be able to actualize) of that shabad. So once an innocent man was in prison, the saint told him to do sava lakh of Gauree M5 Thir kar baiso har jan pyaare and you will get out of jail...... but he didnt read the Gauri M5, he just started from the shabad. The saint came to visit him in prison said you must read the heading aswell, today that man is alive he got out of jail at the first hearing.

Its a subjective issue, whatever shabad you like is important and one that brings you more spirituality. Dont think the mere mathematical jaap will givwe you anything....you gotta do the jaap like serious bhagti in an organised way like a nitnem maryada. Personally if iwas to do such a jaap i would read Dhanasri M5 Aukhi Garee Na Dekhan Dei. Baba Nand Singh Ji did sava lakh of this and they always said Mool Mantra is to Hosi Bih Sach because you cannot take Guru Nanak Pad out of the mantra since it was Guru Nanak Dev Ji who obtained this mantra. If you do to Gurprasaad you will only get to know Akaal Purkh's nirgun form and not his complete form

yh.. everything is given by guru G, even if you do the paat, become silver tongued, which is not that tough, say summin wrong, and something bad happens to that person u have said it to, you then can get the karam from that 'deed'because u sow'd that seed, and then u have to pay for it. then, u learn ur lesson (cuz u pay the karam), the other perosn pays his karam, and all is happy again. this has happened lotsa timess.. and it is the case with any shabad.. but each shabad is 'different' in that, the focal point / reason for that ucharan of the (one) shabad, is differet.. i.e. basically each rahao line is different. or, it can be the same, but the pankti (pauri) is different in the shabad when compared to another shabad.

just to say, karam is not the hand that you are delt in this life. its whatever you have sow'd in your previous life. more ppl are saying they dont believe in karam.. i ws shocked.. truely.

125,000 is a 'special' number.. its like if one asks, y 125.000, you ask, y did bhai gurdaas G say 'do (2) saadh sangat' and 'punji parmeswar', and punj piyaare, and why the amrit sunhaar says right hand ontopa the left n not the other way round. there is somthing in numbers. 1.25 is one of the numbers..

maaf karna if i come accrosss strong, i dont mean to. (",)

and, just to say, this is why you normally go to a gurmukh / sant to get a paat to do, in case anything goes wrong.

just saying..

Because you are weak and lack faith in the power of Gurbani.

any shabad can give all kirpas, as Gurbani does not have limitations. However, Gauri M.5 Thir Ghar Baisho Har Jan Pyare shabad is particularly prescribed for help in making your works complete.

You are contradicting your own statement when you say,

"However, Gauri M.5 Thir Ghar Baisho Har Jan Pyare shabad is particularly prescribed for help in making your works complete."

At that pace, wouldn't it take just under 4 months?

6 per minute =

360 per hour (6/min*60mins) =

1,080 per day (360/hr * 3 hours) =

If it is under 4 months, then it's still under 6 months! :lol2: :respect:

Look guys the only reason, student(sikh) is advised to do that many japji sahib or shabads by saints because that during the course of doing 125000 shabads, hopefully- student has his intuition fully attached to the shabad (ie- ajapa jap),..thats the whole point of it..its imperative one understand the reasoning along with 40 days chalisa as there is fine line between doing shabads 125000 times with or without being in 40 days chalisa as "spontaneous flow" and on other hand just make it as mere dogmatic ritual like typical hindu pandits/mullahas do..you start by tracking the first day how much it was done on 1st day and how long it took then 2nd day onwards you just let it flow spontaneously- just go by duration, otherwise slowly the whole point behind doing jaap itself will be missed and it will turn out to be dogmatic ritual!!

    •       Why are you playing into her games?  She is being a brat.  She's the little child in the store aisles crying for a chocolate bar.  Ignore her whining and crying.  Go on with your day as a man with strength and show her you don't need her.  Flip the tables, show her, she needs you and the family.  Show her, you and your parents are one unit and will not be broken.    This has nothing to do with marrying a girl from india.  Majority of the women born and/or raised in western countries don't even know how to cook.  Forget about living with the parents after marriage.  Even if they live with the parents, they can't cook roti for the father in law, what use is such a woman, who can't cook for her husband's parents.  Might as well get a maid they are cheaper because they don't take half of your stuff.  All these western girls know is how to spend money on a face mask and body massages by men.  They will gladly take their clothes off for a massage, but will go to kill the father in law if he ask for a cooked meal.  Their priorities are all screwed up.  They gladly take their clothes off for a picture on instragram.  Why do some of these mona who are married to these western girls drink so much?  Because they are upset with themselves for marrying a sl*t.  They couldn't think straight at the time of marrying the bimbo because they were look for the wrong qualities.  Their dad warned them about marrying the girl who gives the milk for free, but they were lost in the face mask.  The grass is not greener on the other side.  If anything it's manure and second hand sloppy joe's.  You can fix your issue.  Best thing you can do is not show you are being hurt by her.  By showing you are hurt, she thinks sooner or later you will give into her demands.  Show her, you can care less of her stupid demands and are happy with living with the family.   Don't scare her or show any sign of violence or  show any sign of any weakness in you.  Many guys have been in your situation. When she ask for something, ask her to do something which she refuses to do.  She says no, walk away and ignore her request.  Children who don't eat their vegetables ask for ice cream, but smart parents don't give them ice cream till the child eats the vegetables and makes it clear, no ice cream till vegetables are done.  She has a roof over her head, bed to sleep on, and food to eat.  Anything extra she ask for is not to be provided.  You are not her servant, she needs to play an equal role in the household to be treated as an equal.  Your parents and you are not their to serve her wants and desires. 
    • Guy's this news seems to be racist but considering Socio-political environment in UK it should be okay. I remember getting stares from Londoners having this t-shirt on.
    • Yes this backwards post is a lot more professional.  Make sure to wipe the dirt off of your knees after leaving your bosses office.  What does your situation have to do with another person's issues?  NOTHING!!!! Stop your crying and whining and take off your wife's dress.  The original poster's wife doesn't want to work and wants to leave the house.  The guy wrote nothing about mother in law being anything.  Yet, you damn dress wearing men target the mother in law?  Your wife's dress is too tight for you take it off, it's making you see things.  With a weak father like you, your kids are going to turn out to be push overs, whether you leave the house or not.  You are the problem, not your dad.  Grow a pair.  If it wasn't for your parents, you wouldn't exist and neither will the fetus in your wife's belly.  Damn you are d*mb.  You must have gone to school to be this stupid, no one is this stupid without going to school for it.  The original poster wrote nothing about his family telling him to disrespect the wife.  Instead his wife is disrespecting his family by being a sloth and mentally abusing the husband into depression and sadness.  My request to you little men with wife's dresses on is to get DNA checks on whose kids you are raising.
