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

 

Sat Sree Akal

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.

    • Vaheguru ji Ka Khalsa
      Vaheguru ji Ki Fateh ji I get what you mean, but why should we care if Islam is enough? If people want to practice through ethical means, then they should be allowed to practice it.. As for the final prophet title or w/e, I don`t think we can simply judge it because who knows what the truth regarding Muhammad ji was actually like. Better safe than sorry when it comes to judging ancient religious leaders, rather lets spend our time praising our own Sri Guru Sahib jis. If bhagats have followers & they are not Sikh, then let them live as well.. They will come to know the truth through kirpa of God.
    • Yeah   I really enjoy reading the threads on there, some of the translations and thoughts are very deep.
    • Yes it does matter if he was a muslim or not, this might come as a shock to you but his bani is within Guru Granth Sahib Ji. IF he was a muslim then logic begs that the path of Islam is enough to reach God because a muslim's writings are included within Gurbani. That also means that the Quran could be considered equal to Gurbani and wait for it, Muhammad was the final prophet of the lord and no one else after him counts. Do you get the conundrum now?    New comers will point to Bhagat Farid and say "he was a muslim so its ok for me to do X,Y,Z" then they'll take it a step further and say that Bhgat Namdev was a follower of Vishnu (for the record he wasn't) and start venerating his idols. Do you get the little issue? The whole point of this thread is to show people that Farid Ji was a Sikh, I don't get why your panties are in a knot over it. 
    • With Waheguru's grace I am lucky to attend them. But, I only made the effort because somebody told me to go. I haven't been able to attend the full camps all the times, but anything is better than nothing. And I've not had a miracle cure, that the health condition has completely disappeared, but we should not expect that anyways, but just leave it to Waheguru's grace for any change, no matter how small it maybe. Although, I have learned some things from them, and they did help me. So I'm glad I went and not think of not bothering to go. I did meet some people that had big improvements from them and it was inspiring to listen to them. It's all good, no harm in it and for the best as it's Gurbani. 
    • Vaheguru ji Ka Khalsa
      Vaheguru ji Ki Fateh ji Why does it matter to which faith he belonged to? All I know from my limited knowledge is that he was a chardikala brahmgyani follower of Paramatman ji, and we must strive to be as blessed as him.. Regarding to if he was Muslim or not, it does not matter especially since we believe in the perfect dharma, so why worry.
