Guru Pyaari Sadh Sangat Jio...Vaheguru Ji Ke Khalsa! Vaheguru Ji Ke Fateh!

After having many deep conversations with other Amritdhari's and non-Amritdhari's dass is intrigued to know how fellow Amritdhari Singh's and Singhnia do Vaheguru Jaap/Simran.

Each person's journey and connection differs as well as their preferences, so it would be nice to hear and share these.

Svaas svaas Simran is something we all try to do (well we should - even if it means we have to keep reminding ourselves) but what techniques and how do you do meditation when you take time out to do it properly?

What method/technique is used?

What do you think about?

How do you sit?

What do you wear?

Do you sing, speak or remain silent?

What tune or speed do you recite to?

How do you feel before, during and after?

These are basic questions but I think it will help Sangat that maybe don't have Naam or don't know how to go about it.

Admin ji, maaf karna if similar topics have been posted previously.

Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa, Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh Ji.

I would like to share what I do when I do my simran.

Jap Ji Sahib tells us that we must: Listen, Accept and then Love. So each time I say Waheguru I listen to my own voice. You can practice your concentration by saying Waheguru faintly and still trying to hear your own voice. I just think about the word Waheguru. Then through repetition, your simran automatically becomes Saas Saas simran whereby you say Wahe on inhale and Guru on exhale. If you are doing it correctly then you will taste sweetness. This is the same taste as when you take Amrit from Kande di Pahul.

Start off slow, it is not a race. Waheguru Ji is inside you. I think the best time to do simran is before Amrit Vela Nitnem.

But you must also remember that you need to take Khande di Pahul, which means that you accept Guru Granth Sahib Ji as your Guru and then Guru Ji will give you the Gurmantar.

Hope this helps, Bhul Chuk Maaf.

Khalsa Ji,

To start off with; chant Waheguru, vocally, eyes closed, focusing just on just Naam that you are hearing with your ears. Ignore all other thoughts in the mind.

Bonus factors are: take ishnaan, prior to Simran. Wear clean, simple clothing. Sit cross legged, on a clean white sheet. Early hours of the morning tend to be better to focus the mind. Take a simple light diet. Avoid watching unsavoury images. Avoid listening to slander.

As your Mann becomes adi {habitual}, you may not need to chant Waheguru vocally; the Simran will take place inside you automatically.

A scenario:

Water is under the ground; in order to utilise it, we have to assemble a nalka {standpipe}. When doing so, the plumber needs to pour water into the nalka. This sounds strange, since the whole point of the nalka is to obtain water. The plumber explains, that in order for the water to rise to the surface, a certain amount has to poured into the opening, in order to draw the water to the surface.

In the same way Khalsa Ji, Naam is within us, but the Sanchar {bringing to the surface} has to be performed externally, before the internal Naam comes to the surface.

Prior to Naam, one is tormented by Kaam/krodh/lobh/moh/hankar. Prior to Naam, the world seems like a battlefield.

With Naam, the 5 evils become drowned rats; they can no longer torment the inner peace. The 5 evils are now conquered/enslaved/imprisoned/rendered impotent.

With Naam, the world is now a playground, rather than a battlefield. Naam makes life bliss; removing all sorrow/dukh/unhappiness etc...

Waheguru......

    • Not really.  The various copious texts are thousands of years old.  They formalised the caste system to control the population, to justify dividing and converting it. They have also tampered with the texts and tried to claim them as theirs, hence the fake AIT, now debunked. They have also stolen Sanskrit texts and used the knowledge to experiment with scientific facts.   But the facts are being exposed daily - with the discovery of the Ram Setu and Dwarka City of Krishna.  Now with evidence of temples being destroyed, gold and gems being looted etc.  Essentially they ransacked the country and left India destitute.  The name India was already commonplace as it was Christopher Columbus that went looking for it in 1492 and found America instead, hence naming of the Caribbean Islands, the West Indies. The current Hindu Religion or Santana Dharma has many paths to enlightenment, as everything is considered God.  That gives Dharmics full freedom to practice and interpret texts as we see fit.  Rules that apply to a particular sect/community do not apply to everyone.  Hence the reason for many Dharmas, if you will.  Certain concepts are accepted as being Dharmic, such as karma, reincarnation, the ability to obtain enlightenment in this life rather than believing in Heaven or Hell.  But essentially as we create the Universe through our thoughts, words and deeds, we can create new paths according to new knowledge or science or beliefs. So there should be no arguments on religion and generally there isn't and hence the reason why there has been an empire built on persuation rather than war.  However, it was accepted that fights/wars are usually about money/property/land until foreign invaders decided to force their way in and refuse to leave.      
    • We don't how Maharaj's hukam works in it's entirety.  Man is part of nature too so it is possible that man's interaction with animals creates adaptation. Dogs came from wolves and they would not be what they are if it was not for humans.  
    • No there isn't lol. Sikhi is Sikhi. Hope you realize that Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji Maharaj was also Shastardhari and they still have his weapons. In fact, Maharaj taught Shastar Vidya to Baba Budha Ji who later passed it to Sri Guru HarGobind Sahib Ji Maharaj. Additionally, Hindu used to literally just mean India/Indian. Now it means a follower of Hinduism.   
    • Then there are also two Sikhis, one before Guru Argan Dev ji, and one after after he was assassinated.
    • Sufis are now claiming to be a branch of Zoroastrianism though they do not follow any of their rituals.  Though Zoroaster is also said to be of Hindu origin as they worship Agni, the Fire Goddess and use it in their rituals, as do Vedics.
