    Beginners guide to Simran

    VJKK VJKF I have recently started back my attempts at walking sant da marag after a brief run in with atheism. I was wondering if there is any special technique to simran or if what I was doing was what most sikhs use. Also, is focusing on chakras gurmat? Do chakras even exist in gurmat? How can I enter a state of samadhi? Thanks.
  2. While doing simran in the morning, my mind always goes elsewhere (or I'm half asleep) so I'm looking for tuks in gurbani to keep in mind. Also, while doing simran on the harmonium in the afternoon, I would also like more tuks to sing. Any help?
  3. God grace I use to go to amritvela simran with sangat daily and I was overjoyed happy just loved it. Last year I began working full time job n it was at night so I would miss amritvela simran. I feel miserable without that sangat n simran and really dont have interest in earning so much money I just need a little to survive n I don't have interest in marriage or kids. When I'm at work I'm 99 percent of the time watching sangat on YouTube during simran and participating. Kind of feel depressed without being there and life seems pointless without simran n sangat. I use to be a bouncer at a club n I would get to simran amritvela in the morning that was my favorite job because of the fighting not females I just spoke to them normally as if they were my family. My current job is easy but 4 days out of the week n 3 days all get to do simran with sangat is like what I look forward too. Just to go to gurudwara is something I cant live with at all. I go straight after work to the gurudwara but amritvela is different. Any suggestions
  4. Vaheguru ji ka Khalsa Vaheguru ji ke fateh Gods kirpa has got me to simran where I can feel it in between forehead during amritvela. I don't want compliments or I may catch ego . If I wanted to get higher spiritually would india be better then current country of Ontario Canada where everyone is on the go and samagum don't really exist except occasionally. Some enlighten das on what to do next. I don't know nitnem nor do I wear chole or shaster or dumala nor married or kids but I work I enjoy doing it but its maya fake I have inheritance where I can live in India join army and be fine with my life.
  5. In order to get ANYWHERE in your Jeevan it is vital to take out 2.5 hours for Akaal Purakh, on top of the 7 Daily prayers we all fondly and dutly do. 2.5 hours can be Mool mantar, Gurmantar (1.15 hour on each) or Gurmantar followed by one Sukhmani Sahib (this prayer takes an hour) or three Baanias from Dasam Granth (which could take an hour) followed by going Gurudwara for 1.5 hours of Simran, Seva and Sangat. In short no Matter what u select it should be 2.5 hours minimum, time excluded from 7 Baanias. Now, there are two dangers here. First, "I can't concentrate so I won't do it..." This is something I call Jargon. It's jargon because as soon as we think "Concentrate" we forget about the MAIN MAIN task at hand completely... Which is to do the Naam Simran or selected prayers. "I will do 30 mins woth focus then buold it up..." WRONG! Just do 2.5 straight, focus will come to u slowly. Second danger, "I don't have time" this is an excuse! You have 24 hours for 2.3 hours of Prayers. If u work from 8am you have all the time in Amritvela. To conclude, if u wish for your mann chanchalas to stop, jeevan to succeed, understand God's Hukam, be liberated, 2.5 is just the start.
  6. listened to katha about this a while back, but can't find the video now. I believe the story of the churning of the ocean is mentioned in bani as well. The Devte decided to churn the ocean to get amrit, the nectar of immortality, which was right at the bottom of the ocean. But it was a difficult task and they had to ask the demons to help them. Using a giant snake, a mountain and a turtle(Vishnu) they started churning the ocean. The demons complained that why should they hold the tail end of the snake? so they swapped and the devte held the tail end while the demons held the head, the exhaustion resulted in the snake releasing poison and toxic air towards the demons. They churned and churned, to the point of exhaustion, Vishnu then decided to give them strength. All sorts of treasures came out, beautiful creatures, devis etc but they kept on churning because it was the amrit that they wanted. After much effort they finally reached the amrit and tasted it. The story symbolises a lot of things. The devte represent the good in us, the demons the bad in us. The struggle represents our struggle on the path of spirituality and meditation, the churning represents our mind and removing the filth. After a very long struggle the first treasures started appearing, but these treasures were just some of the gifts that come with meditation, not the goal. After much more struggle they finally reached the Amrit, the nectar of immortality. When doing simran, it takes a lot of patience, you often struggle. And then you start experiencing the gifts, but these gifts are not the aim, after more simran/churning you finally experience the amrit. Correct me if I've said anything wrong ?
  7. Hi, I go through loads of mood swings throughout my daily life and this is really unproductive. For the past few weeks I've managed to stick to 15 minutes of simran a day, and usually after I get up I just feel so much more blissful, calm and composed (also it saves me from 5 chore a lot). What I want to ask is if anyone can recommend ways that I can remain in this state of mind all the time, if not forever haha? Please do tell me about any personal experience as well I'd love to read about them! Thanks!
  8.

    Jaap with tongue

    What is it called when the tongue automatically starts reciting Mool Mantar or gur Mantar. What is this stage? What can be done to progress spiritually

    Simran sounds

    I hear what sounds like an xylophone, it’s very quiet and constant..... but when I stop saying Waheguru to listen if it is the tv downstairs- it stops. Can this sound be a good small sign? Is it normal to hear only when I am chanting or does it sound like it’s just my ears playing up.
  12. I plan to do Wah with incoming breath and Guru with outgoing for 1 hour morning and evening - anyone has any experience doing something similar and how did it impact your day to day lives Also while doing it I will try to maintain awareness of the whole body (energy body as well as physical)

    Dreaming during simran

    For the last few day’s now when I do my simran I keep falling into what feels like dreaming, it’s always of people I’ve never seen before in my life for example 2 seconds until I snap myself out of it. Is this me not concentrating or what? It’s strange because I was focusing fine before. Just suddenly it’s like I get into a drowsy dream state. Today I saw a little girl with a patka jump on my bed. The back of what seems like a hindu man walking. The other day a singhni with glasses? So random.
  14. Today I did a bit of simran and Mool Mantar and I feel very dazzy in a good way. I also felt an energy around me while doing simran. Is this normal? Does this mean any thing?
  15. Hi Can anyone give me some simran tips. I try to listen to myself saying waheguru. Sometimes I feel a lot of emotion, sometimes I feel like I am just saying Waheguru and it’s all blank. I feel like when I was making progress in feeling a lot of love my stupid ego ruined it because I told someone and now nothing. I just want to be close to Waheguru and spiritually progress and stop caring about worldly rubbish and control my panj chor and just basically eventually go to the right place ?

    Erasing sins

    Hi I was fortunate to have kirpa over 10 years ago, I was practicing well but then it all just went pear shaped. Cutting a long story short I went from practicing rehat to being a complete sinner. I spent many years drinking, tried drugs, and also committed a huge amount of bad lustful actions. I went from one extreme to the other. For a couple of years I use to drink and then get upset about how I threw everything away, the chance Waheguru gave me away but then slowly I forgot about that lifestyle and became comfortable in this new lifestyle of not thinking much about my Sikhi. I got married (to someone who doesn’t practice much sikhi, but now is taking a slight interest) and I also have three children. I have recently found the love again for Sikhi, I feel waheguru has given me a second chance by showing me the light again, I am now trying to practice and change by waking up for Amrit vela, stopping meat, and alcohol too... not that I have drank on many occasions since uni. I want to change my inner self, become compassionate, control my panj Chor etc. I have realised I do not want to waste this life, I am thirsty for gyan and spiritual connection again. I am worried now, will I ever be able to erase the sins I have made over the last 10 years? Will simran do that or no matter how hard I try do I have no chance to obtain mukhti now? I use it to always think I would marry someone who was a practicing sikh as I believed you are the sangat that you keep. I look back and wonder was it meant to be this way as in was I meant to meet my spouse who I never would have if I was wearing a dastar like before, were we meant to be like this as my spouse may also get into sikhi and this was our path? Or was there someone else I was meant to marry who was Amritdhari. As we have had a rocky marriage, due to my spouses drinking habbits. That’s a separate question but what’s stressing me out is the guilt of the sins I have committed. I feel disgusted in myself that I went against my Guru, especially the lustful actions. Can I ever pay for these sins in this lifetime and clear them before I leave? When I was younger I use to do simran and feel so much bliss, now I still haven’t got to that level, I get distracted and have to work hard to keep my mind from thinking too.
  17. Is there any difference between a taksali gutka and any other ones like budha dal gutkas? I used to use mysikhi app to do nitnem and read gurbani, but recently i downloaded the damdami taksal sunder gutka app.
