WHAT IS NAAM AND HOW TO MERGE IN NAAM?

ਨਾਮੈ ਤੇ ਸਭਿ ਊਪਜੇ ਭਾਈ ਨਾਇ ਵਿਸਰਿਐ ਮਰਿ ਜਾਇ

Naamai Thae Sabh Oopajae Bhaaee Naae Visariai Mar Jaae

नामै ते सभि ऊपजे भाई नाइ विसरिऐ मरि जाइ

From the Naam, everyone originated, O Siblings of Destiny; forgetting the Naam, they die away.

ਹਰਿ ਕਾ ਨਾਮੁ ਸਚਾ ਮਨਿ ਵਸਿਆ ਨਾਮੇ ਨਾਮਿ ਸਮਾਏ

Har Kaa Naam Sachaa Man Vasiaa Naamae Naam Samaaeae

हरि का नामु सचा मनि वसिआ नामे नामि समाए

The True Name of the Lord comes to abide in the mind, and through the Name, one merges in the Name.

Raag Sorath Guru Amar Das

In the first line above, Dhan Dhan Satguru Amar Das Maharaj, tells us, that Wahiguru, Naam or Shabad is the same thing, and that everything was created by this Naam.

All the Khands, the Brahmands, the material or subtle universes upon universes, gods, devis, devtas, all species of life forms ...absolutely everything was created by Naam alone.

Then is the second line, He is telling us, that this Naam, is achieved only, by meditating upon it, and then it is this very Naam, which makes us merge in it.

So wonderful, so beautiful no?

Through Naam, we merge in Naam, and become one with Naam.

After going through these words full of wisdom of our Guru Sahib Sree Guru Amar Das Maharaj, one feels, that pitifully, the whole world is blind and ignorant, by getting entangled in manmat, through so many other diversified activities, rituals, etc....

The Bani of our Guru Sahibans, is very clear, in terms of what is True Bhakti, it is we manmukhs, who turn our faces, and do not want even to hear such truths...

Everything depends on us, if we follow Gurmat as it is in essence, we shall become one with Wahiguru.

If not, we shall wander in the cycle of births and deaths...Then too, we think we are wise, and we proudly say, we are His devotees ....

Sat Sree Akal.

Lovely. Thank you Harsharan paji for this.

ਸਬਦੇ ਹੀ ਨਾਉ ਊਪਜੈ ਸਬਦੇ ਮੇਲਿ ਮਿਲਾਇਆ ॥

सबदे ही नाउ ऊपजै सबदे मेलि मिलाइआ ॥

Sabḏe hī nā▫o ūpjai sabḏe mel milā▫i▫ā.

By Guru's instruction, the Name wells up in the mind and by Guru's instruction, the mortal is united in the Lord's union.

ਬਿਨੁ ਸਬਦੈ ਸਭੁ ਜਗੁ ਬਉਰਾਨਾ ਬਿਰਥਾ ਜਨਮੁ ਗਵਾਇਆ ॥

बिनु सबदै सभु जगु बउराना बिरथा जनमु गवाइआ ॥

Without the Name, the entire world is insane and loses its life in vain.

Nanak, the Name alone is the Nectar and, through the Guru, is it obtained.

Upon the supreme importance of Naam Bhakti

Dhan Dhan Satguru Amar Das Maharaj tells us in His Bani, Raag Sorath, something on the supreme importance of the devotion of Naam.

ਨਾਨਕ ਨਾਮੁ ਨ ਚੇਤਨੀ ਅਗਿਆਨੀ ਅੰਧੁਲੇ ਅਵਰੇ ਕਰਮ ਕਮਾਹਿ

Naanak Naam N Chaethanee Agiaanee Andhhulae Avarae Karam Kamaahi

नानक नामु न चेतनी अगिआनी अंधुले अवरे करम कमाहि

O Nanak, the blind, ignorant fools do not remember the Naam, the Name of the Lord; they involve themselves in other activities.

He says, they are fools, blind and moorakhs, those who do not meditate on the Naam, but proudly engage themselves in all other sort of activities and rituals as substitutes for this real bhakti.

Then He says:

ਜਮ ਦਰਿ ਬਧੇ ਮਾਰੀਅਹਿ ਫਿਰਿ ਵਿਸਟਾ ਮਾਹਿ ਪਚਾਹਿ

Jam Dhar Badhhae Maareeahi Fir Visattaa Maahi Pachaahi

जम दरि बधे मारीअहि फिरि विसटा माहि पचाहि

They are bound and gagged at the door of the Messenger of Death; they are punished, and in the end, they rot away in manure.

This means, these stupid manmukhs, are severly punished by the messengers of Kal / death, for wasting away the present blessed opprtunity by Wahiguru on us, for the only purpose of devoting ourselves at His Lotus feet, through Gurmat, which is :

Ik Oankar, Satgur Parsad, Jap.

There is only one Lord, who is realized and met by His Simran/Jap.

First of all penji kaurp, we are all lucky people, including yourself, Guruji has given the precious and priceless Gurbani to reflect on.

I would not class myself, as a person as great, as I am a sinner. Each soul has their share of Sukh and Dukh, it's not easy.

For some people it's easier for some it would be more difficult, depending on what I've mentioned below.

It hard fighting against the five thieves of Kaam, krodh, lobh, moh, ahankaar. Every soul has different karm, different levels of mental strength according to the situations they are in, different levels of spirituality, and different perceptions of how to deal with distractions of the world.

If one is able to change their situations, then through own decisions and choices where it is possible only, but we do not have complete free will, therefore every soul should be aiming to live within God's will, Hukam, we can only try to live within their Hukam.

I will say, people are able to share advice but nobody can show you the way apart from Waheguru, God. And for that, you should turn to them for guidance. It is Waheguru that graces one to deal with distractions of the world.

Guruji tells us :

ਸਹਸ ਸਿਆਣਪਾ ਲਖ ਹੋਹਿ ਤ ਇਕ ਨ ਚਲੈ ਨਾਲਿ ॥

सहस सिआणपा लख होहि त इक न चलै नालि ॥

Sahas si▫āṇpā lakẖ hohi ṯa ik na cẖalai nāl.

Man may possess thousands and lacs of wits, but not even one (goes with him) avails him in the Lord's court.

ਕਿਵ ਸਚਿਆਰਾ ਹੋਈਐ ਕਿਵ ਕੂੜੈ ਤੁਟੈ ਪਾਲਿ ॥

किव सचिआरा होईऐ किव कूड़ै तुटै पालि ॥

Kiv sacẖi▫ārā ho▫ī▫ai kiv kūrhai ṯutai pāl.

How can we be true and how can the screen of untruth be rent?

ਹੁਕਮਿ ਰਜਾਈ ਚਲਣਾ ਨਾਨਕ ਲਿਖਿਆ ਨਾਲਿ ॥੧॥

हुकमि रजाई चलणा नानक लिखिआ नालि ॥१॥

Hukam rajā▫ī cẖalṇā Nānak likẖi▫ā nāl. ||1||

O Nanak! By obeying, the pre-ordained order of the Lord's will.

ਹੁਕਮੀ ਹੋਵਨਿ ਆਕਾਰ ਹੁਕਮੁ ਨ ਕਹਿਆ ਜਾਈ ॥

हुकमी होवनि आकार हुकमु न कहिआ जाई ॥

Hukmī hovan ākār hukam na kahi▫ā jā▫ī.

By the Lord's order bodies are produced. His order cannot be narrated.

ਹੁਕਮੀ ਹੋਵਨਿ ਜੀਅ ਹੁਕਮਿ ਮਿਲੈ ਵਡਿਆਈ ॥

हुकमी होवनि जीअ हुकमि मिलै वडिआई ॥

Hukmī hovan jī▫a hukam milai vadi▫ā▫ī.

With His fiat the souls come into being and with His fiat greatness is obtained.

ਹੁਕਮੀ ਉਤਮੁ ਨੀਚੁ ਹੁਕਮਿ ਲਿਖਿ ਦੁਖ ਸੁਖ ਪਾਈਅਹਿ ॥

हुकमी उतमु नीचु हुकमि लिखि दुख सुख पाईअहि ॥

Hukmī uṯam nīcẖ hukam likẖ ḏukẖ sukẖ pā▫ī▫ah.

By His command the mortals are make high and low and by His written command they obtain woe and weal.

ਇਕਨਾ ਹੁਕਮੀ ਬਖਸੀਸ ਇਕਿ ਹੁਕਮੀ ਸਦਾ ਭਵਾਈਅਹਿ ॥

इकना हुकमी बखसीस इकि हुकमी सदा भवाईअहि ॥

Iknā hukmī bakẖsīs ik hukmī saḏā bẖavā▫ī▫ah.

Some obtain gifts through His order and some through His order are ever made to wander in transmigration.

ਹੁਕਮੈ ਅੰਦਰਿ ਸਭੁ ਕੋ ਬਾਹਰਿ ਹੁਕਮ ਨ ਕੋਇ ॥

हुकमै अंदरि सभु को बाहरि हुकम न कोइ ॥

Hukmai anḏar sabẖ ko bāhar hukam na ko▫e.

All are subject to His fiat and none is exempt from His fiat.

ਨਾਨਕ ਹੁਕਮੈ ਜੇ ਬੁਝੈ ਤ ਹਉਮੈ ਕਹੈ ਨ ਕੋਇ ॥੨॥

नानक हुकमै जे बुझै त हउमै कहै न कोइ ॥२॥

Nānak hukmai je bujẖai ṯa ha▫umai kahai na ko▫e. ||2||

O Nanak! if man were to understand Lord's fiat, then no one would take pride (speak in ego).

Could somebody show me a way?

kaurp penjee,

below is a beautiful and a technically perfect answer, given by our Simran penjee, where she is telling us in just few words, that Wahiguru is the sole motor of everything. Do ardaas to Him with a sincere heart, He will clear your ways

I will say, people are able to share advice but nobody can show you the way apart from Waheguru,God.

And for that, you should turn to them for guidance.

It is Waheguru that graces one to deal with distractions of the world.

Then, my 2 cents to this your question above, with a quotation from the Bani, as there is hardly any other way....

Dhan Dhan Satguru Ram Das Maharaj is telling us in His paavan paviter Bani in Raag Bilaval, in just two verses,how to deal with the difficulties you mention:

ਧੀਆ ਪੂਤ ਛੋਡਿ ਸੰਨਿਆਸੀ ਆਸਾ ਆਸ ਮਨਿ ਬਹੁਤੁ ਕਰਈਆ

Dhheeaa Pooth Shhodd Sanniaasee Aasaa Aas Man Bahuth Kareeaa

धीआ पूत छोडि संनिआसी आसा आस मनि बहुतु करईआ

The Sannyaasi renounces his daughters and sons, but his mind still conjures up all sorts of hopes and desires.

ਆਸਾ ਆਸ ਕਰੈ ਨਹੀ ਬੂਝੈ ਗੁਰ ਕੈ ਸਬਦਿ ਨਿਰਾਸ ਸੁਖੁ ਲਹੀਆ

Aasaa Aas Karai Nehee Boojhai Gur Kai Sabadh Niraas Sukh Leheeaa

आसा आस करै नही बूझै गुर कै सबदि निरास सुखु लहीआ

With these hopes and desires, he still does not understand, that only through the Word of the Guru's Shabad does one become free of desires, and find peace.

Here above, Guru Jee is telling us, that one does not need to become a sanyasi, or run away from the world, in order to dedicate ourselves in His devotion.

Rather He is saying, while living a household life, and fulfilling one´s duties, responsibilities, one has to take out some time from the 24 hours of a day, and dedicate it in His Simran, as He is the unlimited fountain of peace, bliss and Truth.

There is a saying which goes like this: as you meditate upon, so you become.

This means, if we meditate on Him alone, we shall profit ourselves with His virtues mentioned above. Not only that, but something much much more fascinating...something which is beyond any expression...which is, by doing so, we merge and become one with Him.

That is why the Bani says:

Jin Har japeeya, se Har hoeeya.

Waheguru, Sat Sree Akal.

Swaasa dee poonjee

All of us are born with our capital of life in the form of swaasas.

This is the most precious or valuable thing which is really ours ...... At our last moments, no amount of any millions of dollars or pounds can get us back eve a single swaas..

So, according to the Bani, if our swaasas are such precious, but even then, if with this bhandaar of wealth, we do not invest it rightly, we shall become loosers.

So, what is it to invest it correctly to gain real profit out of it?

ਸਾਸੁ ਸਾਸੁ ਜਾਇ ਨਾਮੈ ਬਿਨੁ ਸੋ ਬਿਰਥਾ ਸਾਸੁ ਬਿਕਾਰੇ

Saas Saas Jaae Naamai Bin So Birathhaa Saas Bikaarae

सासु सासु जाइ नामै बिनु सो बिरथा सासु बिकारे

Each and every breath which escapes me without the Naam - that breath is useless and corrupt.

Guru Jee, in the line above, is telling us, that if we do not repeat His Naam with each inhalation and exhalation, then, that swaas, that breath, is useless and lost.

On the other hand, if we do His Chintan with each and every breath, we are sowing our seeds in Sach Khand, which will make us go there and have the Fruit of His Darshan, not only that, but with this His devotion, He blends us with Himself.

Sat Sree Akal.
