Jeevan mukhti is liberation of the soul from the circle of birth and death. It is achieved by making your mind attuned to the naam. Sant is just a title conferred upon someone. Adding Sant in front of your name does not make you a jeevan mukht. Although, Sants probably spend more time than the average person, meditating on naam. Becoming jeevan mukht is not a common thing. If someone was jeevan mukht, I doubt they would declare it. I don't know if I've ever met one, to be honest. I'm still trying to get there myself.

Do you know what it is to be jeven mukth, what would the signs be?

As for the question Gurbani says yes you can be Jevan Mukt, gurbani calls it living Dead.

jeevath marai marai fun jeevai thaa mokhanthar paaeae |

But if he remains dead while yet alive, then by so dying, he truly lives; thus, he attains liberation.

When you are liberated, you lift the illusion of Maya (the material world). You become detached. You don't desire anything, you don't fear anything or anyone. You see life as a game to be played. Things that used to bother you become insignificant. They don't matter. You don't need to prove yourself to anyone. You don't need validation from anyone.

We can test the effects of Maya scientifically. Ask two people to drink from the same cup of tea. One person will say it is sweet. The other person will say it is bitter. Who is right? You can't prove either of their statements to be true, because their observations are relative. Truth cannot be relative. By definition, truth is universal. God is truth. Attachment to material things will take you farther from the truth and therefore farther from God.

"Aadh sach, jugadh sach, hai bhee sach. Nanak hosee bhee sach"

- He was true in the beginning, true through the ages, He is true now. Nanak, He will always be true.

An analogy I can draw is the process of getting older and maturing. Think back to when you were a child. Remember all the things that used to bother you. The problems that you thought you had, now seem trivial.

I can't give you a checklist to see if you are jeevan mukht. When you know, you just know. Or maybe you never realize it. I don't know.

This is just my 2 cents. I would say always look for the truth yourself. Don't believe the ramblings of a fool you meet on the internet. I'm just trying to figure it out like everyone else.

The bit highlighted is the important thing which only comes with age and maturity, as we are in a day and age, too confident with our opinions, we take them as learned objective views, when really our concept of divinity is close to nil, and only based on the little research we have done, and not backed by Practical Avastas or Jeveen.

As for what Guru jee says, we are in a time where everyone will have a opinion, whether that be a learned one or unlearned, they are called Mooraks who have not seen God or Heard God and try to explain the Game and Spiritual world he has created

So that no human being will ever be confused, at the meaning of liberation, signs of Being Mukt are within Gurbani

First we achieve mukti while alive and not when we pass

jeevan mukath har paavai soe |

They become Jivan-mukta, liberated while yet alive, and they find the Lord.

These are the identifications of a Jevan Mukth

nij ghar vasehi anmrith peevehi thaa sukh lehehi mehal |1| rehaao |

Dwell within the home of your own inner being, and drink in the Ambrosial Nectar; you shall attain the Peace of the Mansion of His Presence. ||1||Pause||

athaareh sidhee pishai lageeaa firan nij ghar vasai nij thaae |

The Siddhis-the eighteen supernatural spiritual powers-follow in my footsteps; I dwell in my True home, within my self.

These people keep the True Rehath that Guru Amar Das jee left us

dhasavai dhuaar rehath karae thribhavan sojhee paae |3|

Doing the rehath of the Tenth gate, He obtains the understanding of the three worlds. ||3||

    • Just see such people as flawed humans (like we all are), but just be aware that these people's flaws means that they could easily lead to your death, and it wouldn't really perturb them much (if at all) because of their sickness.   When I was younger I asked someone about wild stuff I was going through. This is what they told me:  "Dasmesh pita is making you stronger for future." There may be truth in that. I'm no great Sikh but Sikhi has sustained me for a while now. Even I'm surprised sometimes that I'm still alive.  I know it's f**king mad when family who are supposed to be looking out for you, don't and actually endanger you. And you only start to get an idea of this years after, because your mind was clouded with your innocence.  You don't really need me to tell you this, but make sure they don't inadvertently destroy you. With Akaal Purakh's grace, you will protect yourself. Humree karo haath de rachaa.   
    • Great response bro. You clearly understand what you're talking about. 
    • I'm just now learning to. In this regard. I was taught to be empathic and protective from birth, especially towards women, especially towards those who might be ill or afflicted or abused. So... I've lived my entire life wide &lt;banned word filter activated&gt; open, thinking it's Satyug, heart for everybody, running to aid people who's victim narrative is, one of what is about to be, many forms of abuse or manipulatuon of my empathy and principles. I've had everything good used against me. Without Vaheguru Akal Purakh I'd just be dead or broken bro.  And my mom isn't the only one. I have another family member with a young son, who I support, who's a nightmare, a full on...nightmare bro. And now..like.. I'm tethered... I'm going to keep an eye on him and protect him. I don't care what it costs. That's God's son bro....That's my only priority outside of Sikhi and Seva.  Want an idea of what kind of nightmare? Listen to HG Tudor. It's ...spot on .. he's...the self aware expert.   Like bro. I'm going to need a minute to reprocess my life and see if I can't take off the "see the Soul in everyone glasses" and figure out who was decent and who was sick.  This is why Charitropakhyan is in Dasam Granth.  I know my posting style is random, my paradigm somewhat unique..ahem..lol  But over the last ten years I've been infatuated with Sikhi, and the last three or four of that I've really been blessed to immerse and understand more and have Sangat...bro ..Akal saving this wretch's life again, and again. It's been beyond words. And here I am. Beat to hell and back, figuratively sometimes literally, mainly intact, best shape ever some how. Best state of mind ever some how. I'm like...in Pr1me shape, Pr1me mode..... at rock bottom with a burden lol. Optimistic though.  And having Sangat has been huge. Thank you all.     
    • You're blessed to have survived all that brother. You must be strong.  What I find with narcissists/sociopaths is that they aren't capable of processing information in any sort of realistic manner. They are always blameless or victims in whatever has happened (in their own minds). They aren't mentally strong enough for self-critical introspection.  But if you're the type that can do this intuitively, it's hard to grasp why they can't. My understanding is that it is often some neurobiological thing, where areas of the brain that deal with empathy are underdeveloped or not functioning like they are with other 'neuro-typical' people.  I too liken it to a lack of 'theory of mind' like autism. They may have serious memory issues too.  From my grasp and experiences, I think the drink and drugs abuse are symptoms of the mental condition, and not vice versa.   If someone's grip of reality is hazy and prone to changes at a whim, they will be compulsive liars. I have a relative like that. I don't think they can actually be any other way sadly.   You keep your head up bro. Protect yourself. 
    • Man my whole...everything has been popping. My head, neck, my fricking skull plates, back, shoulders, ribs both origin and insertion, wrists. I'll be doing Simran and as everything is releasing this...positive tension builds and I can feel it culminate, then I instinctively...let it come up and out and move my head just a bit, and this most excellent eruption of pops and adjustments goes off. I can feel my eye tension changing, my circulation, mucus clears, breathing opens up. And then the process happens all over again, and over the course of the last few months especially, all this dysfunction, and postural problems, and... I'm a highly trained swordsman and have meditated for years, so my posture is already pretty...on point, but lately with the Bhagti Simran, my posture, aligment everything has been just opening up, balancing out, the work being non stop forces a flow state. There were some injuries and blockages and inbalances I've been growing through for years now, but only Simran, Gurbani, Gurmantar has the ability to break through the painful previous plateaus and release one in a valley of highly effective, pain free living.  What little time I've had to do weapons lately? Bro. Simran has finally opened up things I was trying to unlock with Aikido for years. I know I'm repeating myself. 20 years Aikido training and finally Sikhi has unlocked it.  Breathing Naam.
