    Core teachings of Sri Guru Nanak which we must live by , this is the right way to commemorate 550th birthday of guru sahib. All of the lines below are from the bani of Sri guru granth sahib First and foremost is this human life is extremely precious and we might never get it again. ਇਹੁ ਮਾਣਕੁ ਜੀਉ ਨਿਰਮੋਲੁ ਹੈ ਇਉ ਕਉਡੀ ਬਦਲੈ ਜਾਇ ॥੩॥ Eihu Maanak Jeeo Niramol Hai Eio Kouddee Badhalai Jaae ||3|| This jewel of the soul is priceless, and yet it is being squandered like this, in exchange for a mere shell. ||3|| We must start our day with naam simran - ਸਬਾਹੀ ਸਾਲਾਹ ਜਿਨੀ ਧਿਆਇਆ ਇਕ ਮਨਿ ॥ Sabaahee Saalaah Jinee Dhhiaaeiaa Eik Man || Those who praise the Lord in the early hours of the morning and meditate on Him single-mindedly, ਸੇਈ ਪੂਰੇ ਸਾਹ ਵਖਤੈ ਉਪਰਿ ਲੜਿ ਮੁਏ ॥ Saeee Poorae Saah Vakhathai Oupar Larr Mueae || Are the perfect kings; at the right time, they die fighting. ਦੂਜੈ ਬਹੁਤੇ ਰਾਹ ਮਨ ਕੀਆ ਮਤੀ ਖਿੰਡੀਆ ॥ Dhoojai Bahuthae Raah Man Keeaa Mathee Khinddeeaa || In the second watch, the focus of the mind is scattered in all sorts of ways. Our mind is habitually wandering in thoughts about money, other people, sense pleasures (ras kas), we should keep bringing it to a word ( like satnam or waheguru or ek onkar etc) , this earning of naam is the only thing that will accompany us ਵਣਜੁ ਕਰਹੁ ਵਣਜਾਰਿਹੋ ਵਖਰੁ ਲੇਹੁ ਸਮਾਲਿ ॥ Vanaj Karahu Vanajaariho Vakhar Laehu Samaal || Make your deals, dealers, and take care of your merchandise. ਤੈਸੀ ਵਸਤੁ ਵਿਸਾਹੀਐ ਜੈਸੀ ਨਿਬਹੈ ਨਾਲਿ ॥ Thaisee Vasath Visaaheeai Jaisee Nibehai Naal || Buy that object which will go along with you. We should eat little and sleep only the amount that body needs to feel rested, and spend our free time meditating on the truth. ਖੰਡਿਤ ਨਿਦ੍ਰਾ ਅਲਪ ਅਹਾਰੰ ਨਾਨਕ ਤਤੁ ਬੀਚਾਰੋ ॥੮॥ Khanddith Nidhraa Alap Ahaaran Naanak Thath Beechaaro ||8|| Sleep little, and eat little; O Nanak, this is the essence of wisdom. ||8|| Always live in the present moment - mind tends to wander in past and future , we should try to pull it back to the present moment and focus on the activity like eating, walking, cooking, talking etc. ਸਚੇ ਸੇਤੀ ਰਤਿਆ ਸਚੋ ਪਲੈ ਪਾਇ ॥੭॥ Sachae Saethee Rathiaa Sacho Palai Paae ||7|| Attuned to Truth, you shall obtain the True One. ||7|| We should approach each and every moment as though it is the first time we are experiencing this e.g we go to the same place to work or meet same family members in the morning, we should treat this experience as if we are doing it for the first time in life- we should pay attention to everything body language, sounds, color because its waheguru himself that is ever new manifesting itself through these physical phenomenon ਦੂਖ ਵਿਸਾਰਣੁ ਸੇਵਿਆ ਸਦਾ ਸਦਾ ਦਾਤਾਰੁ ॥੧॥ Dhookh Visaaran Saeviaa Sadhaa Sadhaa Dhaathaar ||1|| I serve Him, who makes me forget my pains; He is the Giver, forever and ever. ||1|| ਸਾਹਿਬੁ ਮੇਰਾ ਨੀਤ ਨਵਾ ਸਦਾ ਸਦਾ ਦਾਤਾਰੁ ॥੧॥ ਰਹਾਉ ॥ Saahib Maeraa Neeth Navaa Sadhaa Sadhaa Dhaathaar ||1|| Rehaao || My Lord and Master is forever new; He is the Giver, forever and ever. ||1||Pause|| We must alwasy speak truth , when we are lying we do so only because we are attached to the worldly affairs , either greed or fear is us causing us to selfishly lie. ਬੋਲਹਿ ਸਾਚੁ ਮਿਥਿਆ ਨਹੀ ਰਾਈ ॥ They speak the Truth - not an iota of falsehood. ਚਾਲਹਿ ਗੁਰਮੁਖਿ ਹੁਕਮਿ ਰਜਾਈ ॥ The Gurmukhs walk in the Way of the Lord's Command. ਰਹਹਿ ਅਤੀਤ ਸਚੇ ਸਰਣਾਈ ॥੧॥ They remain unattached, in the Sanctuary of the True Lord. ||1|| It is very unspirtiual to let thoughts greed or worry about livelihood flourish in our minds, for the lord forever takes care of our food provided we dont ask for too much ਨਾਨਕ ਜੰਤ ਉਪਾਇ ਕੈ ਸੰਮਾਲੇ ਸਭਨਾਹ ॥ Naanak Janth Oupaae Kai Sanmaalae Sabhanaah || O Nanak, having created the living beings, He cherishes them all. ਜਿਨਿ ਕਰਤੈ ਕਰਣਾ ਕੀਆ ਚਿੰਤਾ ਭਿ ਕਰਣੀ ਤਾਹ ॥ Jin Karathai Karanaa Keeaa Chinthaa Bh Karanee Thaah || The Creator who created the creation, takes care of it as well.

    Start off by listening to japji sahib, go on YouTube and search japji sahib by Bhai Jarnail Singh that’s the shud uchaaran, DON’T JUST LISTEN TO IT, the video has the gurmukhi on the screen and go through each word with Bhai sahib. Look at the screen to remain alert and if you want to at another time read the English translation which is under the gurmukhi script on the same video. But when you want to listen to paath, go through each word with Bhai sahib on the video. The optimum and most beneficial time to receive the most fruits from bani is at amritvela 2am to 6am. Start off by getting up a little later such as 5, have a shower and listen to paath, after listen or recite the Ardas, and pray to maharaj from your heart to bless you with the ability to wake up amritvela again. GO AND LEARN SANTHIYA at a gurdwara. Don’t learn Punjabi at a school or something, learn Gurmukhi santhiya from a gurdwara, are you from the uk? I can send you Gurdwaras where Damdami taksal teach santhiya. When you feel depressed listen to chaupai sahib, this is a very powerful bani, and it’s only 5-7 mins long. Listen to the bani and remember the words, you’ll soon remember them however you must pay attention to the paath and look at the shabads on screen. Whenever depressed, lonely, low on sikhi or in times of happiness recite this beautiful bani. I would suggest to listen to japji sahib and chaupai sahib in the morning. Japji sahib is a long bani for any beginner so don’t feel let down if you can’t listen to all of it, however do an Ardas to maharaj that they give you the strength to complete the paath. Start to listen to the paath with the intention to complete it all. Smaller banis to listen to if you can’t listen to japji sahib or banis you can add to once listening to japji sahib (even better): - Chaupai Sahib - Shabad Hajaare - Shabad Hajaare P10 - twai prasaad svaiye (sraavag sudh) - twai prasaad svaiye (dinan ki pratipal) And many more!!! The most powerful thing you can do is a Ardas. Either in english or Punjabi pray to maharaj to help you and give protection. Dukh Daaru Sukh rogh bheyaa (Pain is a medicine which will ultimately give you peace). You are in pain, but now you are receiving your medicine (bani/naam) and you will ultimately have peace. Don’t give up on maharaj, they will never give up on you. when you take one step towards guru ji, he will run a thousand steps towards you. The first is listening to bani, then learning bani, then reciting bani daily and ultimately becoming bani (implementing all of the gurus teaching within your life). Begin your spiritual journey to guru ji, this is why you were given this human life. bhul chuk maafi Gurfateh ji.
