This article is written by a rare enlightened soul who has been truly

blessed with this top spiritual state : ATAM RUS.



One God Who’s Name is “Truth” - Great Great Supreme God Supremely


Supreme God Supremely Transcendant and the one who He resides within -

the Brahmgiani, enjoy a special continuous divine union. This bliss

is known as ATAM RUS. The complete Satguru’s truly pure heart enjoys

the Immortal Being’s presence 24 hrs a day.



The one in whom the Lord resides 24 hrs a day.

Nanak: that one is Completely Perfect.”

(Sukhmani Sahib)

This union gives rise to the greatest joy – MAHA ANAND. In the heart

of God’s bride, the perfect divine light of her soul is united with

the Supreme Soul. This give rise to blossoming love and divine

intoxication. The one who enjoys this ATAM RUS is the Khalsa. Guru

Gobind Singh Ji :


Infact only the Bramgiani (Knower of God) - the Sada Suhagan (Eternal

Bride) - the complete Satguru (Pooran Satguru) - the KHALSA has

experience of ATAM RUS. This state is higher than AMRIT. There are

three types of Amrit that people think of :

1) Khanday bhattay da amrit – Sikh initiation ceremony

2) Naam and Bani Amrit.

3) Ek Boond Amrit.

(There is another article that describes these).

The only ones who can enjoy this highest level of divine joy – ATAM RUS

– are those upon whom the Eternal Being has be

stowed his mercy. The

ones who have taken support of the Perfect Lord. The ones who have

meditated upon the perfect Satguru and followed his instructions. Not

being separate from the Perfect Lord, they have become one and the

same. The Perfect Lord has come to reside in their heart. And they

are totally engrossed in always singing and praising God.



“Take the support of the Perfect Lord, who’s Name is also Perfect.

Nanak: merging into the Perfect One, sing the praises of the Perfect


(Sukhmani Sahib)

In the eighth verse of Sukhmani Sahib, Guru Arjun Dev ji describes the

qualities of a Brahmgiani. Guru ji says that in the mind and heart of

a Brahmgiani radiates the perfect Supreme Light of God, just like the

rays of the sun shine in the sky. Only the Bramhgiani knows this




The brahmgiani’s mind is full of God’s Supreme Light, just as the sky

is above the earth.

The Brahmgiani is the dust of everyone and the Brahmgiani enjoys ATAM


(Sukhmani Sahib)

Guru Gobind Singh Ji writes that the only one worthy to be called a

Khalsa, is the one whose heart lotus is filled with the Supreme Light

of the Supreme Lord. And the Khalsa is only that one who enjoys ATAM

RUS. Guru Gobind Singh Ji emphasises that the one within whom there

is God’s Perfect Light (POORAN JOT) and God’s enjoyable union (ATAM

RUS) – then there is no difference between that one and God. No

difference between that one and Guru Gobind Singh Ji himself!


The one within whose heart the Perfect Light is lit is Khalsa, all

others are not Khalsa.”





The one who enjoys ATAM RUS is the Khalsa.

There is no difference between them and God or them and me.”

The Tenth Father, Guru Gobind Singh Ji has said the Khalsa is his body

and breath, the very life of his life, friend and companion, perfect

Satguru and brave friend. Guru ji gives the Khalsa endless praise and

glory and greatness. Guru ji even says that his method of meditation

is to sit and focus on the Khalsa!

Nowadays, most people do not know the real meaning of the words “ATAM

RUS”. In Punjab, great gatherings of people at Kirtan programmes are

organised for an even greater amount of money by a handful of

religious singing groups (Ragi Juthas). The title of these events

tends to contain the words : “ATAM RUS”. However, it is the

extremely rare one who really has searched for and been blessed with

the real ATAM RUS. These events are actually not bestowing you with

ATAM RUS, but with KANEE RUS meaning pleasure for the ears with sweet

music. And these events are organised for making money – which they do

very well.

ATAM RUS is above MAYA (mammon : things that distract you from God).

ATAM RUS is only experienced by those great spiritual warriors with

truthful hearts who have defeated the five thieves (anger, greed, lust,

attachment and pride). The ATAM RUS enjoyment is higher than anything

in the world including all the sacred languages, words and letters that

try to describe it. ATAM RUS is beyond description, beyond singing

about it, and beyond the majority of those who are describing and

singing about it. Ultimately ATAM RUS can only be known by

experiencing it in your own heart.



These letters will not last forever,

God is beyond these letters.”

(Bhagat Kabir Ji in SGGS)

Humbly yours

Atam Khojee (Soul Searcher)

    • Too add another piece of the puzzle of what apnay experienced during the colonial period (as requested in the OP).         It’s easy to be mistaken by this picture of a gentle, stooped, grandfatherly 95 year-old. He was in fact one of the most feared and dangerous men in British India. So feared was he by the British that, shackled in irons, he was held for 16 years in near solitary confinement 1000kms off the shore of India for fear of the revolution he tried to spark. This is Sohan Singh Bhakna, founder of the revolutionary Ghadr Party. When India joined WW1, every young Punjabi man was vigorously encouraged to join the Indian Army; British officials, Indian nobility, Indian district bureaucrats, even the Indian National Congress and Mahatma Gandhi joined forces to promote recruitment. Opposing that consensus was a vociferous, violent energetic group, operating from North America called the Ghadrs, or revolutionaries. Sohan Singh Bhakna became active in the early nationalist movement before he joined the small pioneering stream of men who moved out of Punjab to the Pacific Northwest in the early 1900s where he worked in lumber mills. America wasn’t colonising India but there was no lack of racism and discrimination toward the ‘Hindoo’ labourers and Bhakna rapidly joined the early Indian labour movement. He founded the Ghadr party with other North American Indians who agitated for the overthrow British colonial authority in India by means of an armed revolution. The Ghadrs viewed the Congress-led Independence movement as soft and unambitious so adopted a harder stance with their principal strategy to entice Indian soldiers into armed revolt against the British taking particular advantage of the vulnerability of the First World War. Their revolutionary plans included smuggling arms to the passengers of the Komagatu Maru on their return to India, making overtures to the German Embassy in the US, pumping out revolutionary messages to Indian soldiers via their prolific pamphleteering. Their most seditious and dangerous plot was to coordinate violent armed revolutionary activity with Indian soldiers in SE Asia. Alarmed, the British promptly arrested Sohan Singh as he tried to enter India in 1914 and tried for conspiracy. Found guilty, he was sentenced to death. A sentence later commuted to life imprisonment in The Andaman Islands, 1000kms off the shore of India. There Sohan Singh settled into a period of revolt and activism with repeated hunger strikes to improve the conditions for his fellow prisoners. Both in the Andamans and back in India where he was imprisoned until 1930 he carried out hunger strikes for Sikh prisoner’s religious rights, the rights of lower caste Indian prisoners and in support of Bhagat Singh. By the outbreak of the Second world war, Sohan Singh had been released 10 years and was an active and fearsome political voice for the Communist Party. War brought new rules, and the Indian Government arrested and interred the now 70-year-old Sohan Singh for 3 more years in an Indian jail lest he revive his violent tendencies during a time of wartime vulnerability. He lived another 20 years after Indian Independence and the Partition, a constant and prolific voice in early Indian politics. He died in 1968, ending a phenomenal life of 98 years, in his home district of Amritsar. -Amandeep Madra https://barusahib.org/general/sohan-singh-bhakna-the-man-who-shook-the-britishers-with-fear/
    • I've worked around a lot of them over the years. For all their faults, none of them (that I've met) seem remotely concerned with the colonial thing, they seem too shrewed and self-serving for that. It's some western raised apnay that do this this.    
    • I agree that the situation is improving among western born Sikhs, but I don't think there has been any significant growing consciousness in that regard among Indian Sikhs.
    • You're right, but I don't see hordes of apnay queuing up to join in, like before. We do have a ground level movement that questions the past in the UK like never before. 'No more sepoys'. The whole colonial period is under scrutiny across the board these days.  Interestingly, this is part and parcel of a growing consciousness in broad areas amongst Sikhs. Of course we will have opportunists and the gullible who struggle to put the past in proper context, but then that just makes the job of de-brainwashing apnay all the more important. We might not be able to educate every last person, but we can make a big difference, enough to reign in the confused.  
    • This is no big mystical revelation imho.  European whites fighting amongst themselves has been on the cards for ages. It's the natural state of things if long term history is anything to go by.  The only good point right now is that we don't hordes of our own illiterate pendu peasants lined up to do goray's dirty work for peanut money that was stolen off them in the first place (like in the previous conflicts with krauts/nazis).  Shasters will be/are important, but anyone who doesn't recognise how important ashtars i.e. projectile weapons like guns, canons, missiles etc. are today is a bewakoof of major proportions. Those of us in the western diaspora: abled bodied young men and women, get ready to defend your own community in the potential face of a rise of racism. It's been done before. Plus the indigenous nazis in many western disaporas have now been reinforced by 'refugee' eastern european ones.  It doesn't take a genius to figure out what we may have to face.
