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) =

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 :(

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!!

    • Good informative reply by Akalifauj paji. Also when getting your blood tests done, request for Vitamin D study and Vitamin B12. If you're inside all day, your Vitamin D maybe affected. So get them done also. 
    • Did something traumatic happen to you as a child?  Anxiety is an over reaction of the mind to some stimulus that it can't understand or faced a traumatic event and is associating certain things, thoughts, or places that bring on the attacks. From the time you were 14 to now, your mind may have developed the ability to understand whatever it can't understand is not going to harm you anymore. But still has some triggers that it can't Overcome. Over time the mind is able to develop coping strategies. Next time they come on, note down where you are, what you were doing and what you were thinking.  Many times being in a certain place triggers them. This place may have nothing to do with why they started but this place triggers them because there is a subconscious thought tied up with the place. Calming your nerves involves being in the moment.  If you are reading a book, focus on reading the book and don't let your mind wander.  If your mind wanders.  Use self talk.  Tell yourself, I am reading and I am focused on this task now.  Tell yourself, Guru Sahib is with you and there is nothing to worry about or there is no reason to be scared.  Tell yourself as many times it is needed.  Anxiety attacks are not random.  They may seem random because its very difficult to figure out what is going on and trying to fight off the attack at the same time. 
    • LOL another Jatt hater. So only jatts cut their hair? Only jatts drink/nasheh etc? Listen bro, you have made yourself sound stupid as your buddy jacf2. Only thing that is right that you said, is that you can's compare Mahapurshs and Shaheeds. But if you want to do comparisions and ratios, then why dont you do one if you really want to go down that route about how many Shaheed Kharkoo Singhs were Jatt and how many were from the castes you mention? I think you will find its a stupid argument to be having. Yeah brother it hurts me seeing the state of our people, seeing most apneh regardless of caste, particularly in Punjab as moneh, struggling to find a Keshdhari munda in the pinds. But trust me, this aint just limited to Jatts. Either way, now is the time to turn it back, by doing something positive. Despite any marayada/jatha/personal issues, lets support those making a difference. Support prachariks going into pinds and bringing Sikhi to people e.g. Giani Pinderpal Singh, Ranjit Singh Dhadhriawale (whatever your views, he the main man in Punjab bringing masses into Sikhi), or whether its supporting those who are tackling grooming e.g. Mohan Singh SAS, Sikh Youth and even your average anakhi punjabis who are stepping it up. Overall point, lets do something constructive and positive, rather than pull each other down over caste, jatha, gender, social class and political views. United we stand, divided we fall...
