jis marne te jag dare mere man anand marne te hi paiya puran param anand.

life is but a dream; death is reality. If u r scared of going to hell keep on reading. Guru gobind Singh ji said that if a Sikh that doesn't cut his/her hair ends up in hell he will be rescued by me.

If your amritdhari u have nothing to fear.

one thing u shud do is sing praises of the almighty and sing his name as much as u can (while u eat, walk, sit, etc.). The last thought u have before death decides everything! If ur life is not uchi suchi do ardas to waheguru to make ur life uchi suchi (a good gursikh jeevan). Waheguru is the doer he is the one that acts through everyone, everything that happens is within his hukam. His hukam is ALWAYS perfect. Everything he does is really great (words fail to describe it). So death is his hukam as well. Tera kiya mitha laage.

remember death and sing his praises day and night. Hao kurbanai jao tina ke lain jo tera nao.

hope this helps :)

There are certain moments when we suddenly become aware of our weaknesses and limits.

Raj na koi jiveya... no one has lived life to the fullest. 

Even st the ripe age of 120+ years... no one will want to leave this world. That is why dharam raaj and his dhoot have a very hard job to perform.  

First they have to force the life out of someone by causing some massive organ failure. Then they have to deal with the soul which simply refuses to obey and still believes it is attached to the body.  

However Kabir ji has glorified death for whose who have passed their days in naam simran. Marne hi te paiye puran parmanand. It is only after death that we can become one with God. Thr death of the ego. We have to forget ourselves and perform seva like how bhilni tasted each fruit for Sri Raam Ji without realising she is making it jhutha. 

Gurbani gives us various examples of ehat our love for God should be like. A fish/ rainbird longing for water/rain. Chakvi longing for sunshine. 

This is the love which makes people seem insane to the world.  True bhagats of God cannot be understood by man. Kabir ji had to admit to people that he is baurha. No one understood what Jesus was talking about about hence no one stood by him in his crucifixion time. 

If we want to forget all about dwath then this love has to take us over so that all we can still see is God the divine everywhere. Guru Arjun Dev ji on the hot tavi, Guru Tegh Bahadhur ji parting with his sis, chaar sahibzadhe, Baba Deep Singh Ji... all unafraid of death but ready to stand by truth... which is God. Adh sach jugadh sach hai bhi sach Nanak ho si bhi sach.

Guest Jee,

Guru Sahiban beautifully gives us the answer to this your query in simple words:

ਪ੍ਰਭ ਕੈ ਸਿਮਰਨਿ ਦੂਖੁ ਜਮੁ ਨਸੈ

Prabh Kai Simaran Dhookh Jam Nasai

प्रभ कै सिमरनि दूखु जमु नसै

Remembering God, the pain of death is dispelled.

 

Moreover, Guru Sahiban goes one step forward, and guarantees us that:

ਪ੍ਰਭ ਕੈ ਸਿਮਰਨਿ ਕਾਲੁ ਪਰਹਰੈ

Prabh Kai Simaran Kaal Pareharai

प्रभ कै सिमरनि कालु परहरै

Remembering God, death is eliminated.

 

*So, you too, if you want to get liberated from that fear, take shelter in Guru Sahiban, by following their instructions, of the only solution to all maladies:  Prabh Ka Simran.

 

Sat Sree Akal.

    • I watch nearly all Punjabi movie releases.  Recently I watched ‘Chall Mera Putt’.  It’s a good comedy about the struggles of ‘Fauji’s’ in England.  It also has a message of better community cohesion with PakistanI Punjabi’s, who are also acting alongside our people.  Seems like since the opening of ‘Kartarpur Langa’, a major effort is being made on both sides of Punjab to embrace each other’s similarities. Punjabi film industry seems to be growing, but there seems to be too many releases flooding the market, with the same copy and paste storylines and repetitive use of the same actors.  Also I don’t know why but all the main lead actors are music artists and rarely does any new grassroot talent get a chance to showcase their talent.  You do get the odd gem like Ardaas and the Black Prince which breaks through but you have too sift through the pile of crap to find them. Gippy Grewal is showing he has a really good skill set as a Director, but he needs to take his time in selecting the right script rather than cashing out for quick releases.    
    • Another important thing re: the reception you might get from certain sections of the community/in Gurdwaras: I'm from a Panjabi background and grew up single parent in a time when it really was considered....I don't know what the word I should use here is?  In anycase, I fully understand why this (the single parent thing) is something a lot of the community were/are hawkish about. I understand why this is considered seriously undesirable. But be that as it may, (from my perspective) you don't really have much choice about these things, you just find yourself in them. Hukam. (For the record, believe it or not, this way of growing up can have some positives and benefits especially in terms of developing resilience in life and self-reliance). All this has probably made me mentally stronger and more streetwise than I would have been otherwise.  Growing up, there were times when the reception I got from some of the sangat at the Gurdwara wasn't exactly friendly. There was a time when I was younger when I might of felt alienated enough to stay away for a bit, although I was continually trying to develop my understanding through reading throughout this (youtube weren't around then). Now I don't know what experiences converts will have, I imagine they may get mixed ones. But the point I'm trying to make is that (for me) some degree of separation between people and Sikhi took place - and I believe for the better. Or else I could've let the negative experiences push me away from Sikhi (like I have seen happen to many, including in my own family), and I believe my life would have been infinitely poorer for this.  This is no excuse for appalling behaviour by apnay by the way. Which is very concerning for some of us, because of the effect it has on cohesion. We can clearly see examples of the negative effects of inexcusable exclusionary attitudes in the villages of Panjab today.  Just a heads up.   This path was sealed by divinity in the form of a saint-soldier. By it's own admission it is "finer than a hair, sharper than the edge of double-edged sword" so if you go through any tough stages - take them with your chin up. 
    • It's the more recent oppressor so the one before that gets a pass. When India gets taken over by the aliens from Alpha Centauri I am sure the Brits will be looked at more fondly. 
    • Weird how it's the "firangi" conquest that comes in for the most hostile criticism despite them doling out infrastructure and administrative benefits (albeit for vested interests) alongside the undeniable oppression, whereas the earlier Mughal one is almost romanticised by certain quarters to a certain extent. 
    • I used to lurk on some indian nationalist websites and they have some interesting insights.  The middle class liberal leaning Indian in their view is an anglofile McCaulyite. McCauley was a British educator that introduced a lot of the British education system to India in the 1800's. A lot of conditioning was done during this time.  What these nationalists say is that the people that latched onto the British education system who were anglicised were previously dhimmified in the previous mughal administration.  Dhimmi of course in Islamic circles means that you were a 2nd class citizen but they sucked up to the muslim elites.  When the power transitioned between Mughals and Brits, they just switched allegiance.  That is why perhaps the looked at the Mughals favourably.
