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)

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
