Which Shabad To Do 125000 Times ?

54 posts in this topic

The path of sikhee, is a path of devotion, of love, of surrender of our wicked minds to the Beloved.

We can not take it as a business deal, like I give this so much to have that in return... That is not the right attitude.

When one loves someone, there are no calculations or speculations, it is just giving oneself selflessly to the beloved.

So should be our love for Wahiguru, at all times, at all places .... When He has given us so much without restrictions, why to limit Him with numbers and times?

The following are some words full of wisdom from the Bani, guiding us for if we want to play the game of love with Him:

jau qau pRym Kylx kw cwau ] (1412-2)
ja-o ta-o paraym khaylan kaa chaa-o.
If you desire to play this game of love with Me,

isru Dir qlI glI myrI Awau ] (1412-2)
sir Dhar talee galee mayree aa-o.
then step onto My Path with your head in hand.

iequ mwrig pYru DrIjY ] (1412-3)
it maarag pair Dhareejai.
When you place your feet on this Path,

isru dIjY kwix n kIjY ]20] (1412-3)
sir deejai kaan na keejai. ||20||
give Me your head, and do not pay any attention to public opinion

Sri Vaheguru Sri Vaheguru.. I feel inspired to try this sadhana! I was listening to a katha on TV, and the parcharak said that true bhakti is where we do not count how many times, or years we have been dharmic, rather true bhakti is when it is forgotten for how long we have had this going (since it has no significance), and we still continue for the love of God.

ਸਤਿਗੁਰ ਸੇਤੀ ਗਣਤ ਜਿ ਰਖੈ ਹਲਤੁ ਪਲਤੁ ਸਭੁ ਤਿਸ ਕਾ ਗਇਆ

One who enters into a calculated relationship with the True Guru loses everything, this world and the next

Not all about the counting, we all need to ready gurbani and take the message deep inside of us which is the hard part! I've tried counting and you end of just focusing on the number rather than the bani and i dont know about any of you guys but it increased my hankaar meter to the red zone if though i hadnt done much path! Its good to have targets but the aim should be to exceed these everyday day and not just stop at them! 

Going slighlty of topic - a singh once told me its easy to sit in a kirtan programme for hours or read a lot of gurbani when the mind is yearing guru shabad, however guru's counter starts when you dont want to sit in kirtan and dont want to do path. That's when we have to battle our mind and force ourselves to do it!

Preet, R78, you have to learn to crawl before you can walk. Nevertheless, what you both imply is what we should aim for.

People drowning in Maya, such as myself, are given techniques, frameworks from Saadhoo Sant that give us something to work towards. 125,000 jaaps / 40 day routines / 11 day routines are all there to help you achieve the next step.
