Anmol Bachans - Precious Words By Saints

Recommended Posts

Jad banda dooje de karam parkhan lag janda tan apna karam bhul janda hai.

Ishq te akal da mel nahin. Je panj pyare akal ton kam lende pher Guru de prem vich sir na bhaint karde. Je chaar sahibzade akal ton kam lende pher neehan vich nahin si chin na

Khalsa amar kyonki Khalsa nu paida karan vala Guru amar. Naash hon vale ton paida hoeya naash hovega, par abinashi Guru ton paida hoeya khalsa vi na naas hon vala hai

Sant Harnam Singh ji Rampurkhera : -

Parmesher bhagta vich vasda hai, parmesher nu bhagta duara hi jaaneya ja sakda hai ate bhagta ne bhagti karke hi parmesher nu jaaneya hai

Adarshak aatmik jeewani paathka te apna prabhaav jaroor paundi hai, is layi kise vi mahapurkh di jeevani parhni, ona di sangat karan de brabar ho jandi hai

Bhai Guriqbal Singh ji Mata Kaulsarwale:

"Mann" "Indriya" (nak, kan, akhaan etc) de adheen hai, je "mann" nu "indriya (senses)" di gulami vichon kadhke "aatma" de adheen kar dita jaawe, ta dukh sukh ton pare ho janda hai kyonki "aatma" "parmatma" da ansh hai

"Mind" is under the influence of or a slave to our 5 "senses/feelings" (ear / eyes / nose etc), if we surrender our "mind" to our "soul", then different attributes of "maya" won't be able to distract or affect us because our "soul" is the part of "the Supreme light / being"

Thank you, That's nice ..

But thinking about this a little harder, I question to myself ''where does that leave mann jitey jagjeet ??''

I thought the idea is to conquer the mind and surrender our body !

But if we could surrender our mind, then we wouldn't be in duality !!

I think that Guru Nanak ji's idea was to conquer mind and maya and rise above it.

He mentions- that we still swim across the world ocean and not detach from it by assuming to get across without any contact with it .

People who follows Gurbani will agree with you.

People who follows the bhagats who says below one needs to look into themselves what kind of sikhism they are following.

Parmesher bhagta vich vasda hai, parmesher nu bhagta duara hi jaaneya ja sakda hai ate bhagta ne bhagti karke hi parmesher nu jaaneya hai

Parmesher sab vich vasda hai te ohnu odi marzi nall guru de hukum vich reh ke jaaneya ja sakta hai.

"God is in everybody, we can realize him with his hukum following the way Guru told".

Above bold quote is mine.

waheguru ji...a different thread has been started for discussions on bachans, so this doesn't get into debate. This link has been copied and pasted for reference.

@ Lucky singh

My thought on your opinion is that the only way for Mind to surrender is if it's won over. And it's the nature of God that only a higher level can win over a lower level. A person go to someone to learn who's on the higher level in that field. Same here, soul is higher than mind, as soul is pure, light of God and mind is based on the outer things he sees, feels, touches etc.

Body is slave to mind. Whatever mind says, body follows that. Every physical action/reaction is born as a thought first and then that thought becomes action. For example my friend asks me to go to Gurdwara, I think for a while and reply back "umm, no I wanna watch this movie, we'll go some other time"...

Now if my "mind" was under "aatma", my aatma would have asked my mind to go to Gurudwara, as aatma is the part of parmatma, and always ask the right thing.

Once soul (because soul or light inside us is the part of "supreme light") has conquered the mind, the mind will automatically rise above from "maya" , "body/senses/indriya" and "sansar" (jag jeet), as the utimate goal for every soul is to be one with the "supreme light".

The bachan is the elaboration of "man jeete jag jeet"

So your saying that 1st- Conquer and Win your mind over and then

2nd- Surrender your mind to your soul ???

I'm a little confused because I think I've nearly conquered my mind, but I don't know what to surrender ??

Should it be My head to Guruji or just my mind ??

OR do I just leave it ALL to Hukam ??

Hang on...., wouldn't it make sense to Surrender and Submit yourself to the HUKAM.

Isn't that what the Guru's did ??

Bulle shah :-

"Bulleya rab da ki pauna, edhron putke edhar launa"

Rab bande de ander adrisht vasda hai, par "mann" nu "duniya" te "maya" valon torh ke rab val laun naal Rab nu pragat karke us naal mel ho sakda hai......

    • yes he did in the form of Guru Amar Das he called them parchaariks, freed them from shackles of hindu and muslim spiritual rules they could exercise their love for Akal Purakh and achieve mukhti, they did not have to serve their husbands as god substitutes.
    • Difficult to say. Depends on the individual. I think most will retreat further into hedonism and self gratification, their "God" being the State, global corporations, and retail therapy, while perhaps others with a pathological aversion for Christianity will turn to Islam with an "Eff you, dad!" mentality, lol, or even for reasons of restoring long lost discipline and structure to their lives that only a rigid belief system can offer.
    • Good answer. ਇਹ ਰਸ ਛਾਡੇ ਉਹ ਰਸੁ ਆਵਾ ॥ ਉਹ ਰਸੁ ਪੀਆ ਇਹ ਰਸੁ ਨਹੀ ਭਾਵਾ ॥੩੫॥ Abandoning these tastes, I have found that taste. Drinking that taste, this worldly taste is no longer pleasing. ||35|| p340
    • Sikhi is not a rule book. That you can do this or and not that. We have been given a brain and a conscience, we should be able to figure it out. The less addicting stuff we do the better. So the less video games, movies, sec, entertainment the better. But some people will become depressed with such a life. So do the minimum you can.  The more addicting stuff you do, you will be pulled into it and your mind will not be able to focus on naam simran and Gurbani.  So ask yourself about everything, will this just be a good time or will it interfere with my amrit Vela and nitnem. Do I feel like I just think about this during paath,  then I should decrease it.  Also about oral and other stuff you asked about. It is not hygienic as you will be exchanging body fluids. Of course with only 1 lifetime partner the danger is less but heres a story: there used to be herpes 1 and herpes 2. Herpes 1 gives u cold sores near ur lips. And herpes 2 was considered genital herpes but now these viruses are indistinguishable probably due to oral. With bdsm you are feeding Ahankaar and anger. But you can say it is playacting etc.  So best to avoid. But there are not forbidden. Use your judgement. As for sexting, your phone can be made public. A kid can accidentally access it etc.  Maybe indulge in this stuff and get it out of ur system and then refocus ur mind on the important stuff. Also best to avoid this stuff when trying to conceive. As the environment can affect the personality and type of child one can get. And as sikhs we ofc want the most spiritual and dynamic souls as future sikhs. So it is advised that parents do alot of of good deeds and paath to welcome a good soul.
    • From the snaps you posted, Anita seems like a good author. That was smart to talk about the lascar plight and history before bringing in Sophia's efforts.  British and American people seem to have treated everyone badly from the indentured Irish, african slaves, to asian immigrants.  While I think it may have had to do with race. I think it also has to do with the times. The british also treated their sailors pretty badly what with impressment and beatings, not to mention the lower classes in the factories and workhouses.  I think it was due to greed (everyone was trying to become rich through exploitation  so having a conscious could be costly), tough times (famines and overcrowding) and also a sense of superiority (upper class hatred middle class for being too mercenery, The middle class hated the low class for being too loose with morals (thievery, single moms) I am glad that Sophia helped her country folk regardless of religion and caste and status. (Although despite what you say about duleep singh, he did seem to forget about the lascars) But I wonder if we Sikhs wouldnt have been just as bad as the british if we had an empire that lasted. I mean so far in panjab, we have failed to improve the infrastructure, sanitation, and equality due to greed, exploitation, and superiority due to caste and 'morals'
