I was just listening to some Katha and katha vachak raised a very interesting question. He ran outta time and so didin't asnwer the question :sady:

It went something like this.

Just by saying light light light, there can never be light. Just by saying darkness darkness darkness, there can never be darkness. Just by saying sugar sugar sugar our mouth wont taste it. Then howcome Guru Sahib says that by saying Waheguru Waheguru Waheguru Waheguru Waheguru we will realize/attain/get... waheguru :lol:

Please do veechar.

This is my take from a katha by bhai pinderpal ji. He was answering question as to why we need to read bani without understanding a single word. He gave two analogies:

1. When a doctor prepares medicine he knows what chemicals will work together to fight disease. The sick person by no means need to know its contents for medicine to work. It will work irrespective someone has in depth knowledge of chemicals or not. similarly bani/gurmantar will work to cleanse our souls of the disease of 5 evils.

2. Similarly we don't have to understand how food is digested in our body so that it can provide us nourishment. We simply have to eat and consume it. Just like food for body, bani is food for our soul and we just need to nourish it.

Just like food and medicine take time to effect out body, similarly reading bani and chanting on HIS name will cleanse our soul and finally our inner eyes can open to see The One.

WOW you have the same logo as Papi. I used to be confused about this aswell...until you actually do sit and say waheguru. It changes your inside...I cannot explain how or why but it works.

That is Papi. He changed his screen name.

Naam is not the same as "name". Saying water water won't get you water but repeating naam will get you Vaahiguru. Mool Mantar is the attributes of Vahiguru. After Ik Oankaar and Sat, we have Naam. Naam is an attribute of Vahiguru. Shabad and naad are linked with naam. When we jap naam we are creating a connection with the shabad and naad and it is this dhun of naam by which we can know Vahiguru and we can have darshan within ourselves. Japping naam is creating a connection with Shabad and Shabad is Guru and Guru is Vahiguru.

Can't really write too clearly about such deep spiritual things but I hope I've helped a little.

In Akaal Ustat Guru Gobind Singh Ji says,

jaap ke keeye te jo pai payut ajaap dev. pudna sadeev tuhi tuhi ucharat hai.

If it were possible to realise through jaap alone, then the Pudna bird that utters 'tuhi tuhi' (would be realised).

Guru Ji says again and again, do jap naam. Vaheguru is gurmantar. What is naam?

    • I saw the video on TikTok I think. It was at Wembley Stadium and I was unable to bookmark/favourite it because Tiktok decided to refresh. It was the "mainstream" Chaupai Sahib you will hear at a Singh Sabha gurdwaras, usually so-called Ramgarhia gurdwaras and also for the past 100 year or so in Harimandir Sahib under the current committee system.  In other words, the sikhs who give up or quit at ਖੜਗ ਕੇਤ ਮੈਂ ਸ਼ਰਨਿ ਤਿਹਾਰੀ ॥ ਆਪ ਹਾਥ ਦੈ ਲੇਹੁ ਉਬਾਰੀ ॥ Lord of the Almighty Sword, provides a shield for my protection. With Your Hands you have saved me.   ਸਰਬ ਠੌਰ ਮੋ ਹੋਹੁ ਸਹਾਈ ॥ ਦੁਸ਼ਟ ਦੋਖ ਤੇ ਲੇਹੁ ਬਚਾਈ ॥੪੦੧॥ You bestow help on me at all places and rescue me from pain and the designs of my demons.401. Kharag kait mai sarann tihaaree. Aap haath dai leho ubaaree. Sarab thor mo hoho sahaaee. Dustt dokh té leho bachaaee. (25) O The Lord of Sword, I seek Your protection. With Your Hands you have guarded me. At All Times be my Support. Save me from wickedness and pain. (25).
    • Bro, can you post from what line to what line they did paath of?
    • A decade later and I can show you all what the problem is. Both Khalsa Primary School and students from Pioneer Secondary Academy were invited for Vaisakhi celebrations, and they done a Chaupai Sahib paat. The problem is, they performed the politics ridden anti-dasam Bhasauria mutilated cut version of Benti Chaupai which is disrespectful to traditional puraatan samrpadaiye and mahapurakh. If bani politics is going to be used on children to skip lines from Dasam Pita ji dhan dhan Guru Gobind Singh ji's Benti Chaupai Sahib, that certain groups think it is ok to do, then @serious guptwas right to raise concerns a decade ago! IN 2024, when sangat is much more knowledgable about dasam bani and katha, when we have so many resources - then if we are not allowing our children to learn bani shud and let them choose their groups to follow later, then this raises RED FLAGS IN 2024!!!! AKAAAAL!
