Salok, Third Mehla:

The entire world roams around, chanting, ""Raam, Raam, Lord, Lord"", but the Lord cannot be obtained like this.
He is inaccessible, unfathomable and so very great; He is unweighable, and cannot be weighed.
No one can evaluate Him; He cannot be purchased at any price.
Through the Word of the Guru's Shabad, His mystery is known; in this way, He comes to dwell in the mind.
O Nanak, He Himself is infinite; by Guru's Grace, He is known to be permeating and pervading everywhere.
He Himself comes to blend, and having blended, remains blended. ||1||

Dear stingers 12,

the question you have asked is worthy a million dollars and more, hats off to it ...... it is a beautiful question, and important in the life of each living being.

Let us see what is the meaning in this Shabad that Guru Jee wants to convey us:

When He says: Ram Ram karta sabh jag phirey, Ram na paaya jaey. This means, the whole world is reciting some type of name of god.

Some say Ram, some Krishna, others god, some Mahadev, some Durga, others Waheguru, others Satnam, some Allah...and like this the list is endless, as there are so many devotees, in so many cultures, different langauges, different religions, and so on ....

So Guru Jee is saying, that mere chanting of any name, or the reciting of religious texts, like parrots, is not enough at all to realease ourselves from the bonds of vikaras, karmas, mind and maya.

We must bear in mind, that there are several levels of consciousness from Sach Khand below. Being the level of Satnam the highest and the purest. And it is there where we should put our objective.

As the saying goes: "jaisa dhiaeeyeh, vaisa hoeeyeh" Means as you meditate upon, there you go and become like that.

Meditate upon something below Satnam, one will go to Baikunth, heaven, swarg lok, Shivpuri....

In this way, our Guru sahibans and the true Bhagats, have stressed to meditate on Naam alone, by doing His Simran. And this Simran, has to be implanted in such a way in our minds, that the Consciouss power hidden in it gets manifested , by disclosing itself within us.

That is why Sree Guru Amar Das Maharaj tells us in Anand Sahib: Naam jinke man vaseeya, vajeh Shabad ganere. This means, we have to repeat His Naam by meditating upon it in such a way, that, that Naam, manifests istelf by revealing us its True Jot and we star hearing the divine melodies of that Shabad within us.

This Shabad or Nam is present in each and everyone in equal measure, irrespective of any creed, caste or colour,but it is only develpoed in us, by doing its Simran.

We all know there is fire in the stones or wood, but not because of that we can get our food cooked, by placing it on them. the food can only be cooked by first rubbing one stone or a piece of wood, with the other one,(this is called the jugtee of Naam Simran), thus some sparks are generated, which leads to a bigger fire,which cooks our food, or bakes our rotis (bread).

In summary, we must drench ourselves, our minds, with His Name, by doing as much Simran as possible at all times, thus we gather thr real wealth and fulfill our human birth.

And at the same, by performing faithfully this type of highest bhakti, we are entitled to enter His abode.

No yam doots, nor Kal himself, can ever stop any wadbhagee soul, who by His Grace has done His Simran with love and devotion throughout his/her life, by returning back to Sach Khand, as He Himself, accompanies at all times, the soul, the sikh, the chela, in the form of Shabad Guru.

Waheguru Waheguru Waheguru.

    • Back in the day many jananis didn't used to dance - my mum and her sister are terrible at dancing and when I was younger I would ask why they didn't dance like other ladies, and instead just stood there, did the mandatory clapping, and swiftly leave. I remember asking my Bibi about this too. According to them the "upper castes" did not engage in this behaviour; it was not permitted and seen as besharmi. However certain castes were permitted, and so dancers were hired I think? Can't remember. Ironic now though. You see women who are well past the age of wearing brightly coloured suits nach'ing and tapp'ing. Oh vi uchi jaat de. Weddings were so simple. Close family would go for Anand Kaaraj, everybody went back to the house, fed the baraat, sagan, bas. Hun pura drama hunda ah.
    • @puzzled Honestly in that situation it's our farj to say something. Nowadays people are overly sensitive but we should still say something...have to remain cool though and say it pyaar de naal.
    • The suggestive dancing has gone on for decades.  The first time I saw it, my jaw dropped. In Punjab nobody bats an eyelid.  Compared to Punjab, you will probably see more people in the UK going to Anand Karaj and that I'd probably because of the milni and tea at the Gurdwara whereas the milni and tea in Punjab is at the palace.  Never underestimate the lure of free food.  
    • the true history dheaan which now bewakoof people are encouraging to do in Punjab making it easier for their daughters to be attacked
