Guru Ji will do Kirpa himself.

Some Gursikhs cant revise, yet achieved AAA in bio chem and maths in A levels!! 1 of them is aiming for medicine..

Waheguru.. Your lucky your motivated into Sikhi.. people usually have the problem of motivation into Sikhi etc. But yeh..discipline works best... Let revision be "part" of our nitnem.. like aim to do 1 subject and a topic u like just before rehraas sahib. Should always be variety to avoid going to sleep(..or moving onto sikhsangat.com lol)

Anyways, What works for me(only recently started revising) is do an exam paper.. and then you'll find wot ur misisng out on.. i was lyk OMG i forgot how to solve integration in maths! Got my book out and began practising.

waheguru ji ka khalsa, waheguru ji ki fateh

so sorry for pestering everyone, but its not working!!

ok so ive made a timetable, n im trying to stick to it. but if i put my ipod on then theres no way any revision is gonna get done.

i know i have to do it, we need a balance in our lives of everything, n at the moment all i can think about is bani, bani, bani. ive got the shabad uni shadiaa maya suaavara, tan sanchiyaa naam apaar in my head. i cant think about anything else, revision jus doesnt go in.

I HAVE TO REVISE!!! but i cant focus, i know its important n i need 2 do it. i sit down 2 revise n think ok ill give myself a break n go do some simran or kirtan, n i jus dont come back 2 my books.

and can anyone help me to understand WHY ive always got a certain shabad in my head??? is it because i listen to kirtan alot n it sticks in my memory??

sorry for this repeated post, but i have tried your suggestions sangat jee, and i dont know what else to do.

i jus keep doing ardaas to guruji to help me, but is this really selfish?? do i really need help?

waheguru ji ka khalsa, waheguru ji ki fateh

Naam Japo KIRT KARO Vand Chakko

To do wordly work/labour whilst engaging at the same time at spiritual persuits of Naam Simran is a Hukam from Satguru and by being lazy with your current work (as a student) is disobeying the Hukam of Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji who made a Grisht Jeevan a compulsory part of Sikh life.

If you do not study hard now, your life will be much more difficult later when you find it difficult to maintain a solid income to support yourself and your family. The excuse of Naam Bani does not apply as there are many Gursikhs who do alot of worldly work and studies yet at the same time keep extremely strict Amritvela and Naam Abhiyaas routines. The Naam Bani must continue throughout the day whilst other activities are going on.

    • I have had this theory for some while  it is harder to abstain nowadays because we get married so late (into our 30s, or perhaps late twenties at best) back in the day Id be a father by 17 lol  not a excuse, just a interesting thought 
    • yeah I once used that point in a argument with some osho bhagat (from a sikh family) who said derogatory remarks on the other gurus, claiming guru nanak was the only enlightened one and that the rest *diluted* and corrupted guru nanak's message enshrined in japji sahib and the rest were all succeptible to emotions and panj chor (referred to "nis pyare seo neho" to say guru angad was attached to the mortal frame of guru nanak and was depressed when guru nanak passed away but I tried giving him a more accurate translation of the words) the guy kept on copying and pasting the same essay on mahantaa of sri japuji sahib in comments so I confronted him if he believed in japji sahib and then he got more osho type philosophical, basically proving he didnt believe in amrit bani but yeah shocker, the very japji he was praising had its salok composed by guru angad who he was belittling     it all started from him asking whether he was a sikh or a nanakpanthi (neither in my opinion, he was parroting his guru osho's words and I woouldnt be surprised that if osho had flipped his views on guru nanak this guy now would have been slandering guru nanak as well), i remember it pissed me off for the two days we went back and forth lmaoo 
    • I thought everyone knew I forgot which source, but I read it somewhere as a kid  At the moment, I can only recount bhai jagraj singh of BoS saying this a couples times, somewhere in his panj bania lecture or the japji sahib katha sikhs were asking guru maharaj for a morning bani, so guru maharaj blessed them with japji (I believe some were doing asa di vaar, at least as much was pargat by then, in addition as well but I may be wrong)  the sewa of compiling shabads into a japuji sahib was entrusted to bhai lehna (guru angad) at the time of gurgaddi divas of guru angad dev ji maharaj, he composed the salok to complete japji sahib (as the maha mantar was given by akaal purakh when guru nanak went to sach khand abode of paarbrahm kartar and guru nanak replied with the rest of mool mantar; I dont know some may differ with me and say brahmgyani and mahapursh are always in the STATE of sach khand but you guys get what I am trying to convey)   that is all I can recall for now but I will try to do more khoj onto this topic
