As much as your bhagti let's you. (Not the best answer, I know). Push yourself or go slowly till you reach a certain goal.

Dear Khalsa Jee,

Nam japna is not like doing excercises for a certain time to build our bodies, rather it is a string in His hands, through which He pulls us towards Him, if only we allow ourselves through this jugtee.

Isn´t Wahiguru our true Father, Mother?

Does a child ever calculate the time in being with his beloved parents?

So must be our attitude, our "taraph", for being away from Him.

You see, the more bandagee we do, the cleaner we get from the filth accumulated on our minds.

And as cleaner we become, the stronger the pull towards Him will be.

The Bani says: saas saas simroh Gobind.

It is not that we should run away and leave our duties and do this devotion.

We have to keep a balance, cause if we do not perform our duties, we can not progress in the "marg of ruhaniyat" either.

Give the world its necessary dues, and to Wahiguru everything else.

How does a lover remember his/her beloved? The lover goes to work, here or there, but keeps the beloved in mind at all times.

He / she, just thinks to finish the duties as soon as possible and go and meet the beloved.

In a similar way, wherever we maybe we may keep Him in our mind through His chintan, and while coming back to our residence/home, find a time and be in His presence, by meditating on Him.

It is not in our hands to have His darshan, but we can definetely submit ourselves to His Lotus Feet by staying in His dhyan, so that whenever He thinks fit, wash our filth with the Amrit of His Grace, and thus become fit for having even a glimpse of His Darshan.

Sat Sree Akal.

how many mins should I do naam jaap ?

God does not judge us on how many mins, hours etc. Waheguru needs nothing from us, we are doing it for ourselves only, to connect to them and as Harsharan Paji says to wash off any sins, and also it is our farz and maqsad to as we have been sent into this world, this is the chance we have to.

We should also live a gristhi Jeevan, go about our daily activities too. I found that when I used to plan I will do so and so many mins etc it never worked.

Just try your best without forcing or expecting anything in return and leave the rest to their Hukum.

This is this mornings Hukamnama from Sri Harmandir Sahib ji.

    • We are equal in the eyes of God because we are beneath him. It is looking at ants from our eyes. The problem with people is that they think that leadership is a privilege. It is not, it is a responsibility.  As the head of the family you may have the authority but that always comes with accountability. They go hand in hand. In families there is a pecking order, the children first, the women next and then the men. Men are the sacrificial gender, why in cases of emergency do they say "women and children first". A woman will sacrifice her life for her children but never for her husband. A man will sacrifice for both. Women who take leadership from her husband do it because they are forced into it or because the man is not up to it and the woman becomes resentful of her husband. 
    • I don’t see how you see this practice as a part of our ancestral history.  What I chose to do independently outside of Sikhi cannot be associated with Sikhi practices. Similar as to how dietary influence is largely down to the landscape and culture of the region you belong to.  The same is for narcotics which are largely taken due to cultural influence and availability to the region.  Just because I eat potato chips in England this does not mean my future generations should adopt this, and somehow associate this with my religious identity.  Your cultural practices can be altered, discarded and chosen but your religious practices can never change,  whether that be in the 18th Century or the 21st.   If you reword this with ‘medicinal, recreational drug use in the region of Punjab in the 17th-18th Century’, I would have no problem with this observation.  But as soon as someone quotes ‘Puratan Sikhs and use of Marijuana’, I am not comfortable with this!
    • Veer ji can u please post pankitis from gursobha and prem sumarag about sukha?
    • Unless you're going to fight enemies of panth and need help of sukha , I don't see any excuse why I should exempt you from similar judgement as of any regular drug addict. People have for long perverted religion for their goals . Nothing new here. Why not get high on naam instead 
    • The whole point about rehit-namas and the differences between them is a whole discussion in itself, but there is evidence in Bhangu's Panth Prakash, Sainapati's Gursobha, Prem Sumarag Granth.  There is also notice of this in the earliest european sources from the late 1700s.  No one is telling anyone to do these things, but to whitewash your own people's history is weak.  As alluded to previously, the people who did partake aren't likely to have done so for what we call 'recreational reasons' today. It may as well have been medical reasons? Given how sukha da tehl is being increasingly investigated by modern science along this very line, it isn't implausible. It may well have been a carry over from pre-existing Ayurvedic practice? Can't you people have a grown up discussion about this?
