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

Recommended Posts

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.

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

Among the meanings of Simran, are repetition of a mantar, or remeberance of someone or something.

And when we do His simran, both come together hand by hand.

Among all such spiritual practices, Guru Jee tells us which one to do, He says : Prabh ka simran, sabh tay oochaa.

Why does Guru say so?

Because, it is the only jugtee bhakti, which detaches us from this creation, purifies us, and reunites our sous with Sachay Patshah Akal Purukh. Prabh ka simran, garb na baseh.

Which by the way, is our objective of being born as human beings. His simran reminds us of Him, His simran is a sincere ardaas at His feet, His simran is submitting ourselves to his Hukum, His simran is the pilgrimage, in which we go as dark crows, and come out as swans, His simran is a shower of boundless blessings on us.

Sat Sree Akal.

    • The more you keep repeating the path the shorter it becomes. Try to do just japji sahib 5 times. You will feel the length has decreased and you are able to do it faster too.
    • katha on the meanings of the path helps you understand what the words mean. This allows you to concentrate better.   
    • Predominantly, yeah. england. By the way, the goreh built roads and trains in Bharat ('India') only to easily distribute the goods that they wanted to loot (this word was, also, looted by them when they were looting South Asia) throughout the continent before shipping all of it back to the uk. They did this only for themselves, so it is not a legacy for the people or country but merely a by-product that was left behind. That wealth included: cotton, textiles and metals, which started the industrial revolution in the 1940's/50's tonnes and tonnes of wheat, rice and grains that left millions upon millions of people starving to death through mass famine countless hundreds of trillions of pounds (~ 600), on which the uk economy has been built today historical Sikh artefacts that were 'forced' to be relinquished and are now kept in museums for profit Ironically, the money that Sikhs and other 'Indians' earn today is what, arguably, belonged to their ancestors. You might already know this but before the empire, Panjab was, apparently, one of, if not, the most literate and well-off places in the world. It had thriving industries created from home-grown materials and some of the mughals were investing some of their wealth too e.g. palaces. Now look at the state of it. The hindus and muslims are to blame for this, too, but the goreh started the trail of destruction, in my eyes. People can do their own research and decide for themselves on how they see them but from my experience, they're nice to your face but cunning behind your back. I'm not just talking about the middle-class elite but the common working-class too. You won't always hear or see them say it because it goes against their preferred method. As far as I'm concerned, they're all the same. According to a recent uk survey, 59% of the uk population are 'proud' of the empire and its colonial rule. I think that says it all.
    • I have a question, these Singhs are probably amritdhari so do they manage to get their paath done whilst in jail?
    • the attack happened on 30 September 2012 Mandeep Singh Sandhu and Dilbag Singh were sentenced to 14 years, Harjit Kaur was jailed for 11 years while Barjinder Singh Sangha received a sentence of 10 years and six months. I don't think they are out of jail @S1ngh source: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-london-25316370
