Sikh - open minded

Recommended Posts

How does one, who's taken Amrit of Guru Gobind Singh Ji, become open minded? NOT going against the rehat! So not "I feel ill. I'll take some beer..." THAT's stupidity, not open minded! Or "I'll cut my hair cause of so and so" again, foolishness not open minded. "Eh mann chanchala, Chaturai kinaeh na paiaa." 

Without rehat infringement one can learn so much from others. Sadhguru is a perfect example. Am sure many have rolled their eyes or maybe are intrigued, why is he a perfect example? Look into his practice of yoga then you may understand. Agreeing with Sikhi, he claims to take control of your mind and body, to make it into one. So when we read Gurbani we are physically there (body) but the mind is out the door. In fact it's MILES away. 

So by meditating and tuning to Naam one must first tune the mind and body together. Methods can be found "Inner engineering" by Sadhguru. Like Sikhi, method is same, sit cross legged and breath (more technique in book). By simple Sadhna one can tune into the world, know the Earth's functions, know what the weather will be like! Understand animal language. So how will this help with Naam? Isn't it a time waste when I can sit and tune in with Naam straight? True but this is just one aspect of applying a method and benefitting the fruits. Be honest! Who would not like to know the weather or speak animal? 

YES! Brahmgiaani's have this knowledge no doubt. But for a person on the path, just started or maybe "Many years have gone by I still fail to concentrate!" Try all sort of methods besides imbuding in the Lord's name directly WITHOUT going astray from Sikhi (be open minded in your methods). The more out the box we think he more we'll realise we can always learn things/ techniques from other faiths whilst keeping our mind and Heart on Waheguru, the ultimate destination. 

However, Sadhguru's technique also involves always being happy, poses of meditation for the mind and body. The thing is nowhere he mentions "You will obtain so and so God..." He merely mentions how to be happy if your body's chakras go right. So chakra's going right, living in the moment (don't Brahmgiaanis live in a moment)? can all aid in achieving where we want to be. 

AGAIN! To clarify, this is another believer's methods of practice that could be useful into helping us concentrate better and reap other benefits. Like just focus on breathing/ emptiness for 10 minutes then recite the Lord's name for another 20 minutes.

    • Remember also  everyone is the soul bride of Waheguru 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
