What Does Guru Ji Say About Work


Recommended Posts

Guest Guest

nope, work shouldn't be taking over your life, work and worldly chores are like a challenge. I remember reading a saaki of Guru Nanak Dev ji and it said that we should train ourselves so we think of god through out no matter what the situation , so at work, home,study etc.

Even when doing your job immerse yourself in the supreme lord!.

Guru Nanak Dev ji did this when he was looking after the cattle, a shop keeper and a business man in the sacha sauda.

Gurur ji has taught us that it is possible and Guru ji is an example for us ! Remember Guru ji explained to recluses who left their families and went to jungles to meditate, he explained that God can be achieved at home too but what's important is the control of the mind!!

So don't be the weak one to your 5 vices, be the saint-solider and fight these evils whilst doing naam simran :)

As you've taken this in consideration that your work is taking over, you can see it as the first step - acknowledgment. Now take the next step and challenge your self, train yourself so that you can remember and feel the presence of God everywhere. God is there with you but you just need to feel him which can only be done through naam simran :D

No, u can remeber God while doing your work, do naam simran whilst working. Naam is everywhere and is everything. It is Truth. The thing is that bhagti is working and doing good for others.

    • I am in big dilemma.  As we all know that waheguru ji everywhere. I also understand that it is important to go to gurudwara sahib as well. My question is that if i do ardaas at home or any other place other than  gurudwara sahib, will it be heard and acknowledged by guru sahib or it is always important to go to gurudwara sahib and do ardaas at gurudwara sahib for guru sahib to acknowledge it? I always do path and ardaas at home in front of harmandir sahib photo or hazur sahib photo  and then for important things i make a list and go to gurudwara sahib to do the ardaas there because i think that if i do ardaas in front of guru granth sahib then it will be more accepted by guru sahib. On the other hand i think that if i am doing ardaas in front of harmandir sahib or hazur sahib photo and redoing the same ardaas at gurudwara sahib, i feel that i am not respecting the authority of harmandir sahib or hazur sahib. Because of all this, I wait to find a quite time at gurudwara sahib when there is less or no sangat  so that I can open my list and read and do ardaas spend 10-15 minutes on average to do ardaas. If there are lot of people, i can't do ardaas due to people in the lineup and I don't want to block access to them while i am spending so much time doing ardaas. If i leave without doing ardaas then i am embarrassed, disappointed and sad and then OCD kicks in. Kindly help!    
    • Play/do gurbani, simran and keertan often, make sure you do your nitnem, use sarbloh and wear sarbloh!
    • process is to find a vichola and then the vichola talks between your family and theirs. The process should be similar to how rishta is done in India side!
    • No. If you read the histroy of Guru jis' times and even centuries later, usually marriages were done in childhood. Then when they were old enough to start their grihast jeevan partnership, the bride is brought over to her husbands's house in muklawa ceremony. 4-5 years engagement is silly. You get Anand Karaj now, and then after university she you do muklawa, that is much more in the guidelines!
    • you need to explain that even the devtay kept their kes, and is a part of the ancestors' culture, that sikhi is also preserving the kshatriya and dharmik cultures!
