Vaheguru Jaap/simran/meditation

Recommended Posts

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...

    • The fact that this guy threw away his political career in order to marry her is example number 72,602,308 of how desperate singhs have become. (If you want to call this "trim singh" a "singh".) How thirsty and pathetic can one be? I have noticed a trend of somewhat successful singhs gladly settling down with women who few other people want (because of a tarnished reputation, or because they are way past their "sell-by" date, etc.). Usually, when these women were younger and in demand, they would have never considered a singh. But after it becomes obvious that they are struggling to settle down (because of their various issues) and are getting old, they are happy to settle for a simp with a pagh as long as he has some status/money.   This Bola guy probably thought to himself: "I wear a turban (and can't do a decent job tying it), and I am overweight and kind of ugly. But somehow a girl is talking to me! Isn't this amazing?! I should marry her!! Who cares if it kills my career? It will totally be worth it!!!"
    • 1. She looks much worse these days with her hair cut shorter 2. This whole story is really depressing. THREE thirsty Singhs basically had their lives ended or ruined. THREE thirsty Singhs. The real story is how desperate many Singhs are. I can't decide which of the three Singhs in the story is the most pathetic. 3. I'm not sure what to believe, but it seems like a real tragedy in any case 4. There is no excusing the behavior of Gagandip Singh and Harinder Shoker. But is it wrong to point out that they probably wouldn't have sunk to such depths if they weren't so thirsty and desperate for women? It reminds me of those stories of incel white kids going crazy and killing people. 
    • Probably people who live in areas with relatively large numbers of Sikhs (near a major gurdwara, for instance). But in general, I'd say educated whites are the most likely to have an awareness of Sikhs.
    • No (unless they live near the White Sikh headquarters in New Mexico).   While Sikhs are a tiny minority compared to Punjabi Sikhs. Most of the white Sikhs are people who were hippies in the 60s and 70s when eastern spirituality was a big thing and they somehow came into contact with "yogi" Harbhajan Singh or other white Sikhs. As far as I am aware, white Sikhs are not really passing Sikhi on successfully to their children/grandchildren. Once that old generation is gone, white Sikhs will probably have an even more negligible presence.
