Combating Kaam Krodh Lobh Moh Ahankar

Recommended Posts

Thought it would be nice to start a thread where we share tips and practices that we use to combat the 5 thieves. Obviously gurbani and rehit are going to help, but what are some other extra techniques you guys use? For me whenever I come under attack I became mool mantar jaap or simran until it goes away. What do ya do? :)

awwww brilliant thread!

I usually try putting some kirtan on, like when I'm sad I put on calming kirtan where I am reminded that at the end its just going to be me and Guru ji and when i'm angry I put on some AKJ kirtan on to get all those emotions out of me lol or like you said doing abit of waheguru waheguru usually helps when your angry!

But the best thing for me to do when i'm attacked my any of these 5 thieves is just to simple take a breathe a think back to where I was before and where sikhi has brought me now!

automatically I feel love, peace and happiness!

Ive also heard that adding Chandi di Vaar to nitnem works wonders... Chandi di Vaar followed by anand sahib burns that internal fire while keeping you calm..! Gonna try it tomorrow.

You don't, because this isn't your battle, your battle is getting up early in the morning and Jaap Naam, which is a difficult battle, I have fallen my share of times, just don't lose your's. If you do try fighting this battle, and for some reason you win the battle,(this is war), then you will get Haumai that "I" beat the panj chore, and you fall back again. Bhai Joga Singh had Haumai before Kaam. In this battle you can wear the Kakkars, but at the end of the day, Guru Sahib will take them Down for you, if you do what he yes you.

Its quite simple to do this when we are aware what should be avoided. Because just having being on one of the thieves will lead us onto the other ones like a domino affect.

First we must get rid of our addictions. we are all addicted to something weather it be alcohol, video games, muslc, drugs ectt.

once we are rid of our addictions then it is easier to combat the five theives as our mind is clear and free of all intoxicating substances we are then sober to make the right decision in lif and avoid doing the wrong things in life and doing what is right.

I'm firmly of the opinion that we can only try to protect ourselves, when kirpa and taras is bestowed we become close and at other times we fall into the trap of 'vin danta jag kaiyaa' (maya). Max benefit can be achieved through sangat of people on a higher plane and avoiding attractions that cause us to slip in the first place - harder said than done. As soon as we step out of Anand filled Gurdwara katha and kirtan programme it does not take long for the chors to trap us, and the higher the avastha the larger the personal fall even with the tiniest lapse/dhill. When we have respite, one should try and maximise this time for simran, kirtan and paat. Kirtan can be sung without instruments for those who have not learnt.

The thing is, as per Bani, these demons, in one way or other, they attack alone or jointly time after time, mostly unexpectedly.

There is no such weapon, nothing in this whole world to defeat them....

If there is anything at all, that is Naam or Shabad.

Why?

Because Shabad or Naam, is a power beyond the realms where maya spreads her tentacles through them on our souls and minds, thus keeping the souls entangled in the web of karmas, and not allowing them to get out of the wheel of eighty four.

Moreover, the power of Shabad, is the power of the Creator Wahiguru, and is thus the only Power to defeat these theives, as well as thieir parents: Maya and Kal .

So if any time I get attacked by any of these dacoits, I just remind myself that, hey guy, you are still green, you ought to do more bhakti, with more zeal and more efforts.... and at the same time, do Ardas to Wahiguru, to bless me with His Grace and make me strong enough, to defeat these vikars or evil tendencies....so that I may be able to please Him and merge in Him.

Sat Sree Akal.

    • Ardaas 1 and  rabb da radio 1  are really gd movies  both on youtube     about social issues     qissa, tale of a lonely ghost is one of the strangest movies iv ever seen! surprised that some punjabi made it, its about a man who wants a son but his wife gives birth to a girl but he doesnt wanna accept it so he raises it as a boy! he even marrys her of to a girl!  strange movie     i dont really watch hindi movies but i liked padmavaati and haider.  i think its just show off tbh       
    • Oh, so they didn't even get that right. I find a lot of Indian 'culture' is super camp. Especially the movies these days (judging by the few seconds I have seen of them before I turn my head away in disgust). I tried watching some modern Panjabi film with social issues recently (called Gelo) but straight away they assaulted my senses with some couple prancing about in some musical number, so I had to switch it off. It takes like a year for me (at least!) to get over these types of things before I can summon the strength to try and watch it again.  I hear you!  It often looks like the people with these lavish, ostentatious events are seriously trying to cover up for some deeply rooted inadequacies with all the fancy, overblown events? 
    • its very camp and over the top. everything is gay about it the belly dancers arent all that, skinny and plain lol  even if i had that much money i would still have just a simple anand karaj and thats it. i dont like being center of attention

      Hello. I'm a white guy, born and raised in the USA, baptized and confirmed Catholic, however I never really could accept what Catholicism/Christianity teaches. I always felt like I was reaching for something "out there" to understand know God. I've read about/researched other faiths, such as Wicca, Islam, Hinduism, other secs of Christianity, and for a while I studied Buddhism. But again, these always left me wanting more. They spoke about God, "The Divine", creator, etc, but they always spoke of different ways to identify with God, spoke about all these rituals to get closer to God, but those things feel inadequate to me. Reading the Guru Granth Sahib pulls something deep inside of me. At least, for me, it explains God in terms that I'm able to understand and connect with, and Sikhism, from what I've read, shares the same moral/ethical/world views that I do. My only worry/concern is appropriating the culture of Sikhs. While I very much admire the ten Gurus and the immense struggle they and the people who lived during there time (and of course the struggle that Sikhs, and black/brown people and other people of color, still go through today), I will never be able to identify with that struggle because of my racial position in life, which I accept, but does that mean I'm not able to follow the words of the Gurus? I'm a solitary person, so I don't think I would go to Gurdwara, and I don't think I would ever be baptized/ take the 5 K's. I enjoy being a lay person, appreciating what the Guru Granth Sahib says, and experiencing/knowing God. I just want to have a relationship with God, and I know that means more than just reading from the Guru Granth Sahib, and I'm hoping with time I'll be able to do more with my faith. I guess I'm posting this to get an idea if there's any white people on this forum who are Sikh, or if any black/brown or other people of color on here have had experiences with white people in the Gurdwara and if those experiences were satisfactory or cringe worthy?
    • Sounds like a gays man's wet dream?  I ain't watching it - f**k that. lol The only thing that sounded even remotely interesting in the above list was the belly dancers.
