  1. Wjkk wjkf! Sangat Ji I was looking for information on Braham Kavach. listening to katha of Giani Thakur Singh Ji there's a lot of good that can come from reading this shabad. What I'm interested in is who wrote the shabad, when it was written, why, which granth it resides in. Also I love listening to Giani Thakur Singh Ji but was also wondering if any other mahapursh from any other group has done katha or talked about it.. just because I'm wondering why it's been Gupt for so long. Bhul chuk maf if I have offended anyone and I would love some Information regarding this shabad . Fateh Ji!
  2. Hello! I work all day at a physiotherapy clinic that plays relaxing meditation music all day. I have control over the music selection and was wondering if some of the sangat can help me out. I want to play kirtan or simran but because we have people from different communities I want it to be something that won't scare away some people. When I first started off I used to play asa di vaar kirtan but that got some people weirded out. It would be cool if I could find some kirtan audio or even raag instrumentals that I could play and listen to and maybe help me do simran or kirtan in my mind. Yet still be relaxing for people getting treatment. Also some people come into the clinic reeking of cigarettes and sometimes alcohol...would this be a problem with me playing kirtan? Need your advice sangat ji. Benti to all kirtan lovers I need your expert advice ji!!! I currently play stuff like this:
  3. Vjkk vjkf ji! Sangat ji, I had a few questions about the hukamnama that is normally written at the gurdwara sahib daily. I know that is the hukam guru maharaj has given the sangat, but is that a hukam by which an individual can act upon or act accordingly in life. There are some days when I read the hukamnama sahib and I feel like guru maharaj is totally speaking to me because it's so relevant to my life. And then on down days,like today, where my sikhi is not going as well as I wish or I've only done half my nitnem and I feel bad but the hukamnama was saying you are in maharaj's sharan and everything in this life and the next life will be taken care of.......I feel like this cant be for me.....no matter how much I wish it was, I'm not that good of a gursikh. So the hukamnama posted daily at the gurudwara sahib. How do we take that? As a direct message guru maharaj meant for me? Maharaj brought the people to this gurughar and this is maharajs hukam for those that read it? Or only for those present during ardas/hukamnama? Anyone that can shed some light on this topic would be much appreciated!

    wash your face with warm water, normal saban, no special acne wash. morning and night. Don't eat any chocolate or oily foods. no mitaee, nothing too garam like badam or raisans. Eat really healthy. before you sleep get a towel, dip it in hot water, wring it out, put it on your face (not too hot so it burns) leave it on for 10 mins or until it cools, then wash with normal saban. AND at the end of this rinse with cool water. what this does is it opens the pores, cleans them out and then the cool water closes them again. MOST importantly everday after nitnem or ishnaan read bani like benti chaupai, five minimum but you can do more. Keep a glass of water nearby preferably in a steel glass (sarbloh if you want). Do ardass fully explaining why you did the five chaupai sahib. then after wash your face with the water from the glass (DO NOT WIPE WITH TOWEL, let it air dry, it may take some time but let it air dry) dont go putting crazy acne stuff on your face MAIN POINT: Read Bani and do ardass with sharda and you can do anything/get anything
  5. Maybe as reserves it would be ok, just to get training. But the wars these western countries are fighting do not fall under dharam yudh.
  6. Saw this video. Not sure if it gurbani or not. Its seems like its just raag with some stuff added to it but then again I'm not sure if its a single line of gurbani being repeated over again. I don't believe it is because at the beginning of the video bibi ji says that this mantra was used by yogi's. Can anyone shed some light?
  7. I am a paapi. I oscillate like a spring. One week in Gurmukhi and bani. The next I'm stuck in manmukhi and kaami actions. I do sangat of the most chardi kala gurmukhs. Gurmukhs who see and know more than the average humans. They know my actions even though they have physically never caught me red handed. And have been warning me over and over and they are just about fed up to the point of giving up on me. I I want to be good. I want to read bani but even my most earnest attempts are feeble and I fall back down. I understand that this world is a game. That we are all jot saroop. And that our karmic debts and maya have clouded our vision. Only with waheguru Jis help can we erase this and merge with the original. But waheguru Ji also made the five sins. He also made it hard for us to break through. I guess it makes the game more interesting. But the pain it puts us through when we fail over and over. I don't know about you great gurmukhs but I'm so tired of feeling inadequate. I feel like I'm undeserving of gods love. I've made bentis to this cyber sangat before but I just keep failing and falling. But if were are all jot saroop. Then why? Why the game? It seems masochistic. I have no budhi so it makes sense that I can't understand the divine. It makes me angry though. If waheguru Ji wants our love. If love for god and guru is the only way to get through this. Why is it made so hard. Why do we have to struggle through it at every turn. Where is this intuitive ease with which a gurmukh should be able to walk through life. Where is this protection from kaam krodh lobh moh ahankaar? Why? I know I'm ungrateful. I know I've probably made some angry by posting this. But I can't be the only one whose feeling like this. I'm almost ready to give up to be honest. Because I know I will get motivated by a post again and I'll be like I can do it. And then for a week it will be chardi kala. But then I'll have to make up for it with a week of paap and self hate. I've never been able to make it before. I've taken Amrit I've done sangat of gurmukhs revered all over the world. But I just come crashing down. And the fall is so painful. I don't know how many times I can get back up. I wish I was ignorant of my actions. Then I could have an excuse but I'm not. I dunno what else to say. I really don't. I'm just rambling now I guess. I don't know what I'm even asking for lol. Vjkk vjkf
  8. When a Singh rode a horse it may trample over a few bugs as well but that doesn't mean the Singh or horse committed a paap. If you intentionally step on an ant that's a sin. I can't remember which Mahapursh but they got mad at a Singh when they killed a scorpion that was in the way when they were building a rode. I also heard in a sakhi that people who cut hair for a living are reborn as mountains. Mountains are a joon. It puts perspective on how long and horrible this chaurasi lakh cycle really is. This is our chance guys. Let's go do some naam simran.
  9. As human beings we will never ever be able to fully know and understand all of the amazing knowledge dhan dhan Guru Granth Sahib Ji have given us through bani. All we can do is pray. Do ardas, say Maharaj sar na jana Teri! But please do kirpa on this murakh so that I can understand more. Also if you don't have bani kant work on that. Some people say they have it Kant. But have it truly Kant, letter by letter. Try doing bani in sangati roop. Sometimes you get more anand that way. Try reading through it really slow. I was lucky enough to be able to here the katha of sant baba Seva Singh Ji rampur kherewale when they came to Toronto this year and one of the things they said quite a few times is "we don't recognize that our true purpose on this earth is to read bani and do simran. And until we recognize this how will our mind settle down and connect with bani" Just keep pushing through. It gets hard sometimes. But it's those times we have to step back self evaluate. Self reflect and say what am I doing with my life. Is this what I want to be doing. What should I be doing. And what steps do I need to take to get to where I want to be?
  10. You only stay engaged in your Nitnem when you continue exploring it. Listen to katha to understand more about what you are reading. Giani thakur Singh Ji DDT did a 31 hour katha on Japji sahib alone. I think the first 5-6 hours alone are spent just on mool mantar
  11. LOL, if we applied your mentality to all of the marriages that happen in a gurudwara these days, only 10% of them should have been allowed to get married. The definition of who is a sikh is so varied, especially outside of india you have to see the sense in letting some things slide. (I'm not speaking of the definition of a sikh from SGGSJ here) When you have people immigrating to new countries not only are those people going to learn new ways of thinking but will also have to change some of their own. Now changing rehat maryada is different, I agree. But at the same time how will sikhi expand if we dont allow it to spread? Cross cultural marriages are important. While their are some lines we will not cross, if a person is willing to submit themselves before the SGGSJ and go through the lavan and continue a life in sikhi being a sehajdhari or whatever, I don't see anything wrong with that. I myself have recently seen how sikhi can affect a family that gets "married into it" and its changed my black and white views of what can be done and who can be married in a gurdwara . I am not pretending to have a final answer, just saying that we can't be so narrow minded. Who knows, this marriage could be the one that sparks the reunification of nirankaris into the panth
  12. Look at it this way, the more mess and trouble we have to take care of, the more seva/phul we get, and maybe this will also force these gurudwara committee's to start using more of the income towards the sangats needs as opposed to lining their pockets with gold. And if the khalsa was shasterdhari and tyar bar tyar like we are supposed to be, those people would piss their pants before starting a ruckus. We are now clearly seeing the effects of our weakness and our inability to follow rehit.
  13. So I was wondering what Scientology was about and wikipedia'd it. Under the body and spirit section i came across this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Church_of_Scientology Body and Spirit Scientology beliefs revolve around the thetan, the individualized expression of the cosmic source, or life force, named after the Greek letter theta (θ).[103][104][105] The thetan is the true identity of a person – an intrinsically good, omniscient, non-material core capable of unlimited creativity.[103][104] In the primordial past, thetans brought the material universe into being largely for their own pleasure.[103] The universe has no independent reality, but derives its apparent reality from the fact that most thetans agree it exists.[104] Thetans fell from grace when they began to identify with their creation, rather than their original state of spiritual purity.[103] Eventually they lost their memory of their true nature, along with the associated spiritual and creative powers. As a result, thetans came to think of themselves as nothing but embodied beings.[104][106] Thetans are reborn time and time again in new bodies through a process called "assumption" which is analogous to reincarnation.[103] Like Hinduism, Scientology posits a causal relationship between the experiences of earlier incarnations and one's present life, and with each rebirth, the effects of the MEST universe (MEST here stands for matter, energy, space, and time) on the thetan become stronger.[103] ummmmmm.....so anybody notice any similarities? because this sounds similar to a post I remember N30SINGH ji saying about the creation of sargun from nirgun and the veil of Maya being created, and MEST sounds like karam, and "thetans came to think of themselves as nothing but embodied beings" this kinda reminds me of man thoo jot saroop hai, apna mool pachan.... Should we start saying Baba L. Ron Hubbard Scientologywale?
  14. Yeah as everyone else said, just do bani and you'll be protected, but do not attempt to contact or interact with spirits at all!, it opens the flood gates for further and increasingly frightening encounters!
