Need section on Simran/Mediation on forum (For ADMIN)

Recommended Posts

Can the admins make a separate section on the forum for Simran/Meditation not a sub-forum where we can discuss:

Bhakti
Simran techniques
Sikh mysticism
Books on Simran
Sants katha on Simran

What is NAM

 

Gurbani is all about naam simran and we need a separate section to make sure we can get our questions answered and life Gurbani

Prab ka simran sabh tay oocha

Why do you care whether it's a "section" or a "sub-forum"?

In any case, there already is a section for Gurbani:

http://sikhsangat.com/index.php?/forum/12-gurbani-scriptures-rehat-history/

And for Bhagti:

http://sikhsangat.com/index.php?/forum/39-gursikhi-gems/

Have you bothered to look there? There's a lot of stuff there on meditation and naam simran.

I don't want it under sub-forum because simran/meditation is the whole messageof Gurbani it should be one of the first things people see when they visit or learn about Sikhi on this forum. 

In any case, there already is a section for Gurbani:

http://sikhsangat.com/index.php?/forum/12-gurbani-scriptures-rehat-history/

And for Bhagti:

http://sikhsangat.com/index.php?/forum/39-gursikhi-gems/

Gurmukh Ji I have looked at both the section the Gurbani section deals mainly with scriptures/texts.

The Gursikhi gems section is good but it doesn't solely focus on simran,techniques, and how to jap and the different stages of nam jap.

Guru Kirpa the amount of simran the panth is doing is really going down because its much easier to listen to katha and kirtan than doing simran.  Its hard to sit still and repeat the gurmantar because you will have to examine yourself and see what's going on in the head.  

Doing simran is one of the main pillars of Gurmat that's why a separate section needs to be made to share its importance and its theory of how its done and overcoming the problems that are on the path.

Guru Kirpa

Another reason to start a simran section is all the benefits of simran

ਸਿਮਰਉ ਸਿਮਰਿ ਸਿਮਰਿ ਸੁਖੁ ਪਾਵਉ  
Meditate, meditate, meditate in remembrance of Him, and find peace. 

ਕਲਿ ਕਲੇਸ ਤਨ ਮਾਹਿ ਮਿਟਾਵਉ  
Worry and anguish shall be dispelled from your body. 

It is easy to read books and debate because it only makes the mind stronger and gives it more energy to keep on thinking.  To still the mind the above quote from gurbani says to do simran.

I'm glad one of the Sikh sites have a simran/meditation section because its the core of the dharm.  We need one on this forum, if we don't were going to get further and further from Naam then the only thing we will have is more and more arguments because are mind is not under control  

ਜਿਨੀ ਗੁਰਮੁਖਿ ਨਾਮੁ  ਚੇਤਿਓ ਸੇ ਬਹਣਿ  ਮਿਲਨੀ ਪਾਸਿ  
जिनी गुरमुखि नामु न चेतिओ से बहणि न मिलनी पासि ॥ 
Jinī gurmukẖ nām na cẖeṯi▫o se bahaṇ na milnī pās. 
Those who do not meditate on the Lord, as Gurmukh, are not permitted to sit near the Lord. 
 
ਦੁਖੁ ਲਾਗਾ ਬਹੁ ਅਤਿ ਘਣਾ ਪੁਤੁ ਕਲਤੁ  ਸਾਥਿ ਕੋਈ ਜਾਸਿ  
दुखु लागा बहु अति घणा पुतु कलतु न साथि कोई जासि ॥ 
Ḏukẖ lāgā baho aṯ gẖaṇā puṯ kalaṯ na sāth ko▫ī jās. 
They suffer the most horrible pain and suffering, and neither their sons nor their wives go along with them.
