bdemon Veer Jee,

Naam japna is not only, not a waste, but a must, for whosoever wants to get freed from the cycle of births and deaths, and merge in Wahiguru.

As Sachay Patshah Arjun Dev Maharaj says in Sukhmani Sahib:

ਸਿਮਰਉ ਸਿਮਰਿ ਸਿਮਰਿ ਸੁਖੁ ਪਾਵਉ

Simaro Simar Simar Sukh Paavo

सिमरउ सिमरि सिमरि सुखु पावउ

Meditate, meditate, meditate in remembrance of Him, and find peace.

He repeats the word Simran thrice, to show us the importance of this holy practice, and as the only method of devotion to be done by us.

ਪ੍ਰਭ ਕੈ ਸਿਮਰਨਿ ਗਰਭਿ ਨ ਬਸੈ

Prabh Kai Simaran Garabh N Basai

प्रभ कै सिमरनि गरभि न बसै

Remembering God, one does not have to enter into the womb again.

Devotions are of many types, but this one of Naam japna is the highest:

ਪ੍ਰਭ ਕਾ ਸਿਮਰਨੁ ਸਭ ਤੇ ਊਚਾ

Prabh Kaa Simaran Sabh Thae Oochaa

प्रभ का सिमरनु सभ ते ऊचा

Some may be surprised and say, I prefer to do jap, tap, pujas or bathing in sacred waters, but Guru Sahiban, clears our fears and ignorance in His following words:

ਪ੍ਰਭ ਕੈ ਸਿਮਰਨਿ ਗਿਆਨੁ ਧਿਆਨੁ ਤਤੁ ਬੁਧਿ

Prabh Kai Simaran Giaan Dhhiaan Thath Budhh

प्रभ कै सिमरनि गिआनु धिआनु ततु बुधि

In the remembrance of God are knowledge, meditation and the essence of wisdom.

ਪ੍ਰਭ ਕੈ ਸਿਮਰਨਿ ਜਪ ਤਪ ਪੂਜਾ

Prabh Kai Simaran Jap Thap Poojaa

प्रभ कै सिमरनि जप तप पूजा

In the remembrance of God are chanting, intense meditation and devotional worship.

Prabh Ka Simran dargeh manee

The Lords Simran, is accepted in His Court

So you see, Dhan Guru Arjun Dev Maharaj, clearly states, that His Simran is accepted in His court. Other practices we do not know, we have no guarantee of their worth, and surely maybe a waste, but this Naam japna, is uttered and written down by Himself, that it will definetely take us to His abode.

Then, Nam is a Conscious power, we can say it is His power, by which Wahiguru created the whole creation, and permeates through it in all and everything. A ray of that power in the living creatures at all levels, is the soul or surtee. There is no being as such, which is deprived of its presence.

And the role or objective of Naam japna, is to reveal that Nam or Shabad within us, which is the reality of Wahiguru, Himself, by washing the filth of our minds, and the filth of karmas on our souls ....

And this priceless gift of Naam japna, is a blessing, bestowed by Wahiguru Himself on all human beings, so that they may free themselves from the cycle of births and deaths, once and forever, thus merge in Him forever also...

Such is the mahanta of Naam japna...we may read gain and agian the Sukhmani Sahib, to grasp as much as possible the beauty and true value of the sacred parctice Naam japna in our lives.

Being Amritdhari is a way of life to live in accordance with Guru Ji's will (Rehat). Guru Ji's gives naam that is why it is called Gurmantar. Without Guru Ji one will not achieve liberation.

Also If one is living the way of an Amritdhari before taking Amrit, ie getting up at Amritvela to do naam simran and Nitnem, devoting your whole life to Guru Ji, then why not just take Khande Di Pahul? It shouldn't be that difficult.
