Question

Recommended Posts

WJKK WJKF

As we all know simran is a major part of the Sikh Path. The other day as I was doing simran and a thought came to my head, what truely are we suppose to be focusing on when we simar naam?

Many times an individual may naturally find their self colored in naam and drift into it gracefully. Sometimes listening to a bani line may be inspiring and lead to a focus. And I guess for years it has been a subconscious task for me. But I was just wondering what people focus on while doing simran? Is it literally a word “whaeguru, raam, har etc.” is it a certain feeling or image of god in your mind? Is it a feeling of love or the way of maybe calling out to god with every breath? Like what exactly should one be focusing on while doing simran for a long time?

I understand that most of the time it may be a misture of things. BUt, as we progress spiritually should we be i dunno maybe fine tuning the focus?

I think its a personal thing. I dont focus on something but imagine being in the presence of guru granth sahib ji or a place which gives me complete shanti.. usually harmandar sahib, I imagine sitting there on the parkarmar at the hours of amritvela-it really helps me to focus, as it would if I were really there. I dont think its as cut and dry as people make out, simran is remembrance - how do you remember him (its a personal thing between you and yourself).

i guess to say it in simpler terms "what do you think about when you say waheguru (vaheguru); especially when its for a long period?"

In order to progress spiritually we must grow in a certain direction through simran no? or am i just over thinking or complicating something simple.

just wondering what approaches other people may be taking

Hmmmm

I know I tend to start thinking about what turned me to Sikhi when doing simran and then I start remembering all the times Vaheguroo helped me...this brings out all the love I have for him inside and after that its total bliss....

durin simran.. i try to focus my mind on the shabad 'Vaheguru'... have the GurMantr Image in my head... also to speak vaheguru with my tongue and hear it with my ears... i try to get to a point where i'm absorbed in the naam... absorbed in the naadh... where i can hear myself and picture the Gurmantr... and jus let the ress'a my mind 'go' free... and 'lose myself' in VAHEGURU..

Well, this is how i do simran. Recite Satnaam Vaheguroo with my toungue and hear it with my ears for about 5-10 minutes, after that recite Satnaam Vaheguroo in your head, imagine your mind reciting Satnaam Vaheguroo do that for as long as possible! you'll get lot of peace after that, this is what i have achieved! Reciting in your mind is not so easy at the begining so you can use your natural breathing for some assistance, for example when you breathe in imagine SATNAAM in your mind and while you exhale imagine VAHEGUROO!

the thing about most of us sikhs is that we do not take meditation seriously. Meditation is the most important on the path to vaheguroo. Meditation will not only help us bring closer to him, it will help us self-realise in the long-term and help us kill the panj doots!

lowest of the low

    • We feel like sharing a post today. Why is it we never value what we have? A house, clothes, food, health, family - others dream of what you already have. Most of all we never value our great fortune of finding the true guru - Dhan Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji, the living light of Guru Nanak Dev Ji.  We mentioned in a previous post, the job of a Guru is to make hard thing easy. Guru Nanak Dev Ji do so much to help us on the journey of naam simran. Just like simran can happen 24/7, sadh sangat can too. As more kirpa happens, Guru Sahib Ji give hukam to mahapurkhs to provide you phera. They form a big circle around you, their presence means even in Kalyug, the area around you is heaven. Mahapurkhs have hukam to protect you, to not let even the slightest negative energy close to you, and to lift you up when you are down. All of us feel down sometimes, but suddenly mahapurkhs can make your surat fly into spiritual realms where there’s huge bliss. The first sign of their presence can be getting darshan of mahapurkhs in dreams, getting sudden urges to do simran/paath/listen kirtan, or even feeling huge bliss randomly but you don’t know why. In this way, Guru Sahib Ji start blessing their pyare with the anand of sachkhand even before death comes. But what about death? The worst thing for most people. Guru Nanak Dev Ji turn this into a celebration for their pyare. I guess one time we were in the right place at right time. When dhiyan connects parmatma ji can show you anything they want. Around 2011, it was night time we just finished kirtan sohila. A voice came from inside, “all preparations have been done, the carriage has arrived, a mahapurkh are about to leave their body”. First we got bairag, that mahapurkhs are needed in this world, please stay. Then they spoke “so if we are going? We will still come and give you darshan”. Feeling content we started Mool Mantar jaap. Out of Mool Mantar came the vision to view the most astonishing spectacle.  The Guru’s pyare leave this world like royalty sitting on the most beautiful carriage. The route to sachkhand is lined by endless beings on both sides, they all bow down as the carriage passes. Countless spiritual realms stand at their doorways to pay respect as the blessed soul passes. From behind my right shoulder came a gust of wind as the carriage passed through my room, quicker than the speed of light (human perception made it seem fast). In sachkhand the blessed soul is received by Guru Nanak Dev Ji who bestow a siropa of bhagati to their pyare.  A Guru - they make the hard things easy. If you want to value having Guru Nanak Dev Ji as your Guru, then for sure make Mool Mantar a part of your life. It’s the biggest gift Guru gave us, for Mool Mantar is the greatest of the great, Satguru Nanak Dev Ji themselves. Vaheguru ji ka Khalsa Vaheguru ji ki Fathe 
    • f############################## india I HATE THAT COUNTRY SO MUCH  I HATE THEM 
    • One simple way to do Simran is to say 'wahe' on the in breath...and 'guru' on the out breath..(focusing on the breathing). With walking I have found a similar method with my left foot stride landing I say 'wahe' and when the right foot lands 'guru'. Whilst focusing on the mantar and the foot contact with the ground. Might be worth a try.
