Is Sikhi The Only Way In Modern Era To Be With Waheguru?

Recommended Posts

I was asking this question because I heard of a great sant named Bhai Manj who after becoming a Sikh suffered through a lot of problems, but still kept his Sikhi as part of him, Guru Arjun Dev Ji warned Bhai Manj of following this path but he still followed the Guru. Next Bhai Manj falls into a pit, and his(Guru Arjun Dev Ji) Hukam was that the wood not fall, Bhai Manj kept the wood high, and when he was rescued Guru Arjun Dev Ji asked what has being Sikh given you and Bhai Manj replied that he had received the gift of NAAM through the GURU. So this Sakhi goes to prove something very important that modern Sikhs are diluted to hear"All religions aren't equal" if you have something to add, please do.

If GOD is your target then you can't miss since it is so big. The only thing is that you can use the short or the long path. GOD exist whether you believe in it or not. By Naam Simran you bring it to your awareness. You go for the source GOD who is all in all, the begining and the end, the first cause of all that happens. So Naam Simran is the supreme above all Karam Kands. You ultimately become what you worship i.e you realize that you as an entity never actually existed it was all an illusion.

Our main problem of the humanity is, that we try to put limitations on the teachings of our Guru Sahibans , our Gurmukhs and Sant Janas in general ..... and encage them in so called religions, and because of this, from there on our problems start ....

Wahiguru is Akal, means beyond time ...... it is we the limited who go through changes.

He is never old nor young, He is the same forever and ever ....

So is the path leading to Him, throughout all the ages, eras, aeons.

It has been the same, and so shall it remain, no matter howsoever we manmukhs try to manipulate their teachings.

Let us have a look, to what do they have to say to the topic of this thread.

For example Dhan Dhan Guru Amar Das tells us in Raag Gauri Guaarayree:

Vin Naavai Ko Mukath N Hoe
But without the Name, no one is liberated

Jug Chaarae Naam Outham Sabadh Beechaar
Throughout the four ages, the Naam is the ultimate; reflect upon the Word of the Shabad

I think here in these sweet words of Satguru Jee, He reveals us that, without Naam there is no salvation, and this has not started with Sacahy Patshah Dhan Guru Nanak Dev Maharaj since six or seven hundred years back, but since the very begining of all the eras, all the yugas, all the times, whether past, present or future.....

Wahiguru is only one, the path leading to Him can not be two, three or four, according to diffrent races, dharams, mazabs caste classes, or geographical locations....

People, languages, races, lands, rituals, religions can be many, but the fact is Wahiguru is one, the souls(jeev atmas) are also one of that Wahiguru´s essence, so naturally the path has to be one, and that one path according to the Bani, is none other that of Naam Simran.

Sat Sree Akal.

I heard in one katha, that Waheguru when he(derogatory term) created Khand Di Batta Di Amrit in 1699, Guru Gobind Singh Ji said that this was the not the only way; however, only through the Khalsa can one attain Mukti today, (the reason being is Guru Panth is Khalsa) even big saints said that like Baba Nand Singh, and Harmam Singh. Amrit was also called the thing that ends all your sins from previous lives and this life will be your last life, according to Taksal Maryada(the oldest jatha in Sikhi), Bhai Randhir Singh also stated the same thing. It's a very universally accepted philosophy by the MahaPurakhs in modern era after 1699 that you can't reach Vaheguru(or Waheguru) without Amrit because the only reason not to take Amrit is Haumai.

Our relation with Him(Wahiguru Akal Purukh) is an individual one, and the only true everlasting one.

All other relations, with society, relatives, friends, enemies, are just due to an adjustment of karmas with them, and all these relations are limited, are due to diffrent bodies: physical, astral, causal.

All of the activities performed with them are under the jurisdiction of the mind, so naturally are "fanah" and "koor" in the end. They are also within the limited parameteres of the creation made out of the 5 elements: air, water, fire, earth and ether, which are insentient by themselves, thus anything made out from them, is also unreal and nashvant.

There is only one Truth and reality, which is above all limitations, above any parlay and mahaparlay, and this Truth is Wahiguru Himself alone.

Our souls are same in essence with Wahiguru, with the only difference that Wahiguru is the highest power and highest level of consciousness, while we are trapped and away from Him, due to the filth our mind, karmas and sanskaras, along with the three coverings or bodies upon our soul.

As per Bani, the only thing which can remove the dirt, the filth of our minds and the subtle bodies, is His Naam. Everything that which is dirty or polluted, needs an adequate cleanser .

For example the toothpaste we use is for brushing and cleaning our teeth, we can not use the same to clean to wash the floors....

Our karmas and dirt of our minds, are subtle, none of the products made out of the 5 elements can remove the filth from our minds, because they simply do not reach there, they can wash our hair, we can bathe, or even wash our faces, but that is all to the most.

If fire can not burn our mind, how can water wet it, or how can air pull it along, and so on ....

If anything can such, wash and desinfect our minds where all dirt is accumulated, is only His Naam, because He and His energy or Naam and Shabad are above any limitations, they are purifiers of our subtle filth, and make us as clean as Wahiguru Himself, if that purifier is used continously, and at the same time, no more dirt is added(karmas).

That is why the Bani says: Jin Har japeeya, se Har hoeeya.

What else do we need?

Our Guru Sahibans out of their utter Daya Meher, have made it very simple and direct for us, to do the right devotion and merge in Him.

This is the base of sikhee. Where a sikh is the soul, and Satguru or Guru is the Shabad, and Nam Simran is the link between them, to ultimately, become all one without any distinction, such is His wadeeayee....

Waheguru

ਸਾਚ ਬਿਨਾ ਸੂਚਾ ਕੋ ਨਾਹੀ ਨਾਨਕ ਅਕਥ ਕਹਾਣੀ

Saach Binaa Soochaa Ko Naahee Naanak Akathh Kehaanee

साच बिना सूचा को नाही नानक अकथ कहाणी

Without the True Name, no one can become pure; O Nanak, this is the Unspoken Speech.

ਤਨੁ ਮਨੁ ਨਿਰਮਲੁ ਨਿਰਮਲ ਬਾਣੀ ਸਾਚੈ ਰਹੈ ਸਮਾਏ

Than Man Niramal Niramal Baanee Saachai Rehai Samaaeae

तनु मनु निरमलु निरमल बाणी साचै रहै समाए

His body and mind become immaculate, through the Immaculate Bani of the Word. He remains absorbed in Truth.

In these above lines of First Patshahee Dhan Guru Nanak Dev Maharaj, He clears some of our brahams or misconceptions of the spiritual reality :

Firstly,He says that, if we believe we are sinners, we are not pure, we are not worthy, then practice the devotion of Naam bhakti, as soon as possible, because without this bhakti no one can become pure.

Then in the second line He confirms us, that, by doing this type of bhakti, one´s body, and mind, both become immaculate, then one is attuned to the Anhad Bani or Shabad within, this is also drinking the inner Amrit, which one reaches by doing Naam Simran alone, this Amrit is made by Wahiguru Himself, rather we can say, this Amrit is Wahiguru Himself, who cleanses us, who purifies us, with His Shabad form, from all our sins and sanskaras, as well as all the vikaars, then naturally we become pure paviter, and again by this Amrit we merge in Him, but if seen with attention to this whole process of our purification and union with Him, it started with the simple jugtee of Naam Simran.

Truly Naam Simran is the panacea for everything.

Waheguru.
