Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh!

Sangat Jiyo I want to start off by saying that I'm not amritdhari but I quit meeting eat cutting my hair and I started doing paath recently. I'm just curious as to what position I should be taking when doing paath. As I'm quite tall sitting for as long as I have to until I finish my paath the part we call our "moor" of our back starts hurting. It hurts to the point where I feel like sitting around and not doing anything after paath. My question is should I do whatever makes me comfortable as long as my legs are crossed? Where are my elbows supposed to be? Can I lean against the wall behind me? All help would be appreciated Sangat Ji. 

Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh!

Posture persay is supposed to help a person focus.

At home change positions as n when required but in Sangat follow convention.

Try sitting upright with good posture when seated. Start by inflating chest slightly and internally you should try and move your sukham core from the ground and upwards,....you should feel weight come off your buttocks. Try to maintain this whenever you realise you may have stooped. Its the stooping that is causing you pain. I'm 6 ft 4, and I no longer suffer these things.

I forgot to mention that it may help if you put a cushion under your asan so that your knees are level or slightly lower than waist line.

Practice practice practice. ususally week to 10 days of being strict will help you develop naturally.

    • 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
