what is the "simran" mentioned in first ashtpadi of sri sukhmani sahib and how to do it?

7 posts in this topic

I know some people will think i ask a no-brainer question. Everyone knows what simran is. Or do we know? 

I wish to start each day of mine now with simran at amritvela. This is the best thing one can do and its merits are eulogized again and again in sggs. 

But some say simran is reciting waheguru, waheguru. Others will say just parroting isnt enough.you have to listen deeply. Yet others say they focus ob third eye in trikuti when meditating. Yet some others say simran is not physical but more mental, simply remembering waheguru at all times. 

Whatever simran maybe in true sense, its more powerful than all nuclear bombs. 

Guru sahib even goes to say that one can't describe the "gati" of one who believes this way. 

To see the wonders of simran go no further than ashtpadi one of sukhmani sahib. This wonderful baani in its first octet describes the wonders and fruits of naam simran , 8 nidhi,  18 siddhi, etc. I wonder why so many who claim to do naam simran don't get them. 🤔

Vaheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Vaheguru Ji Ki Fateh! Simran is remembering Vaheguru; Jaap is chanting the Gurmantar; you can not do Simran without first Jaap of the Gurmantar. It's better to do something than nothing; just to help out just start Jaaping the Naam.

I wanted to answer this separately; the power of Dhan Dhan Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji's hand on your head is stronger than any riddhi siddhi powers. Because of his love; we don't need even the greatest magics, you don't need to have Dhan Dhan Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji to have powers, (in fact you don't even have to know he exists), but that all is nothing compared to the love Gurmukhs have when the wake-up at Amrit Vela and chant the Gurmantar. Everything about our way is Gur-prassad.

There are some techniques to actual simran, one's life needs to be attune to the Guru and one needs to understand the inherent value of simran which comes through the Guru. These three things must happen simultaneously.

Some jatha walas worship their founder leaders on the basis of ridhi-sidhi. They claim that these things are testament to the fact that their chap (yes, invariably a man) has done everything right so copy his one low life and forget about the Guru's 10 pure lives. One such greatly worshipped man (now deceased) taught his followers that until and unless they experience this great powers, they aren't doing it right. Sadly he was mistaken: These ridha-sidha are entirely irrelevant. Your mind being washed of its filth is a prize, power and award that only the greatest bhagti can get, for even the ridhi-sidhi so called mahapurakh hasn't been able to conquer his own houmai. Going from being conceited and angry to seeing God in all directions is the Guru's true gift. This is the most basic of truths that the Guru tells.

Do a true ardaas and the Guru will oblige.

waheguru ki ka khalsa waheguru ji ki fateh

What does Guroo jee say about what to focus on when doing simran? 

Answer: Dhun meh Dhyaan, dhyaan meh jaaniaa 

your voice should produce the sound ਵਾਹਿਗੁਰੂ and your ears should listen

as a beautiful Gurmukh pyaara once told me, keep your eyes closed and your ears open listening to the simran: upon doing this daas gained a lot more out of daily abhyaas than I had ever gained before!

for those who have it written in their karam, ridhiya sidhiya come, however it's very important not to even test these powers, as it is a sure fire way to destroy your Sikhi, those Gurmukhs who do possess such powers never use them no matter how many times the temptation arises

True naam simran is done by a select few lol. As for Ridhi Sidhis they're more common than you think lol. Many people in india do seem to possess them, however they end up corrupted by them. I know of a couple of people who have certain gifts like this.

From what I know they do use the powers but only when the Hukam demands it. They never use it for any personal gain and only to help others. Even when they do use their powers to help others they do it in secrecy and they never use to wow and impress others. Being like Rama, Krishna, Jesus all possessed these wondrous gifts because they were spiritually so wise and powerful but even they got corrupted demonstrating them. These powers naturally rush to true Brahmgyanis and our Gurus themselves had infinite power. Heck even Death and disease were so afraid of Guru Amar Das Ji they never dared enter Khadur Sahib while Guru Sahib was residing there. Not a single man, woman or child died or fell ill while Guru Sahib was there.

    • Vaheguru ji Ka Khalsa
      Vaheguru ji Ki Fateh, ji But with Sri Ardas Sahib ji we are guided to do what is best. Without that paath, an average person can carry on doing wrong without guidance. Vaheguru ji Ka Khalsa Vaheguru ji Ki Fateh
    • Vaheguru ji Ka Khalsa
      Vaheguru ji Ki Fateh, ji From my memory of reading Sri Chaubis Avtaar, Buddha ji was an avatar of him that was here to make people go offtrack because royal people were abusing riddhi siddhis through hinduism. Or of course, if you'd like to know more about it you can read it yourself without assuming things, Singh ji. Go to  buddhist mandirs, they have images of devtas everywhere. Sri Indra, Sri Brahma, Sri Ganesh, Sri Mahadev, Sri Saraswati, Sri Uma Devi, Sri Devi are all known to them. Just look at this video of a jagrata they have in their own culture: Those countries do believe in hinduism, they are actually believing in hindu traditions while being buddhist such as MURTI POOJA which is an hindu custom. They have jattheras for their ANCESTORS just as hindus do. They have versions of ramayan in their languages that they used to read. bhul chuk maaf kijye Vaheguru ji Ka Khalsa Vaheguru ji Ki Fateh
    • Vaheguru ji Ka Khalsa
      Vaheguru ji Ki Fateh, ji Veer ji, these stories were told orally to me. If someone lives off of donations of sangat, then whatever pains the sangat has is transferred to the person who live's off their work. Even in my Sri Gurdwara Sahib ji, they tell everyone who is rich or poor that 'lohr matavic langar shako' (aka do not always live off of donations). Parchar is something that needs to be done for free, rather than for money. Look at all these people who use sikhi as a way to make money, buying 1st class plane tickets to travel etc. It would save us from people who do Parchar and literally say anything just because they will receive $$$ afterwards. Now people are having paathi sahib jis doing paath at their house for money as well, if the reciter's motive is to achieve money and not actually do paath for free then what energy are they really spreading while doing paath? Energy matters, even when making sri karah prasad we are told to try to keep the most positive energy while preparing it. These are just my views, all are free to believe in what they want, but as per that saakhi I would rather live a simple life and earn little money, rather than making money off of sri guru sahib ji's sikhya which is free for all. Free for all.. Sri Gurbani Sahib ji is not invented by us, why should we sell it in the name of dharma. I think people who do stuff as hobbies have true prem, because they are doing it for the love of it, rather than the ones who have $$$ on their mind. bhull chuk maaf kijye Vaheguru ji Ka Khalsa Vaheguru ji Ki Fateh
    • Even Sant Jarnail Singh Bhinderwale said the same thing, the word Hindu does not appear in any Hindu texts, and when they refered to this religion they would call themselves Sidhu, (which means of the Sidhs/Bhagti or Magic, I don't know what Sidh by itself means unless used with another word). As you know Islam invaded India very early on, so those first Muslims called these Sidhus, as Hindus. Why Arabs gave-up this word in their dictionary, I don't know. Arabs are mostly Muslim-In-Name-Only, the groups that are usually more devout are the Non-Middle-Eastern Muslims, (with the exception of Iran, which became religious due to the some false agitations on the last Shah and secular groups).
