How to naam jap?

Recommended Posts

Guest Anon Kaur

Fateh everyone. Quick question, what is the proper way to naam jap? Like for any bani that we do.. japji sahib, rehraas sahib, etc. I recently read that we are supposed to think as if Mahraj Ji is sitting right in front of us. Are we supposed to be singing like kirtan? I have such a terrible voice I don’t want to come off as disrespectful!? Is it wrong to just say it monotone?

Pen Jee,

in our bhakti towards Him, it is our intense love for Him which counts only.

He does not see whether we have a good voice or not, or if we are handsome or not, whether we are rich or not.

Repeat  lovingly Waheguru slowly in your mind and pay attention as if someone is repeating it, and you are listening to it,  how it is pronounced.

Start with  15 minutes, by His kirpa you may increase the time gradually, but above all do it  in a selfless way, without any expectations, just as beggar stands at the door of a king to get some biksha.

In a similar way, when we do His bhakti of His simran, means we are nothing,  we are smashing our ego, and telling Him, Waheguru,  only you are. That is selfless bhakti, nishkam bhakti.

Then when we are not, and only He is, ocurrs something most wonderful, we have become one with Him, which is the purpose of our bhakti, of Wahiguru Akal purukh.

Stay blessed.

Sat Sree Akal.

Nice post 

Simran kills the mind so that eventually we can just Feel within our being. That's living by the heart- where He resides

Sit at 12:30am for around 2.5 hours, do ardas, relax and hear the ringing sound (anhad naad) 

 

Relax and let the Samadhi(meditation) take you.

Go deep into it, into the silence (sunn) 

Enjoy it. God bless you

You are not going to find the answer you want from a forum since people that actually are in tune to Naam do not waste their times doing such activities. If you want an answer you must seek out those that have actually attained that level.

    • The fact that this guy threw away his political career in order to marry her is example number 72,602,308 of how desperate singhs have become. (If you want to call this "trim singh" a "singh".) How thirsty and pathetic can one be? I have noticed a trend of somewhat successful singhs gladly settling down with women who few other people want (because of a tarnished reputation, or because they are way past their "sell-by" date, etc.). Usually, when these women were younger and in demand, they would have never considered a singh. But after it becomes obvious that they are struggling to settle down (because of their various issues) and are getting old, they are happy to settle for a simp with a pagh as long as he has some status/money.   This Bola guy probably thought to himself: "I wear a turban (and can't do a decent job tying it), and I am overweight and kind of ugly. But somehow a girl is talking to me! Isn't this amazing?! I should marry her!! Who cares if it kills my career? It will totally be worth it!!!"
    • 1. She looks much worse these days with her hair cut shorter 2. This whole story is really depressing. THREE thirsty Singhs basically had their lives ended or ruined. THREE thirsty Singhs. The real story is how desperate many Singhs are. I can't decide which of the three Singhs in the story is the most pathetic. 3. I'm not sure what to believe, but it seems like a real tragedy in any case 4. There is no excusing the behavior of Gagandip Singh and Harinder Shoker. But is it wrong to point out that they probably wouldn't have sunk to such depths if they weren't so thirsty and desperate for women? It reminds me of those stories of incel white kids going crazy and killing people. 
    • Probably people who live in areas with relatively large numbers of Sikhs (near a major gurdwara, for instance). But in general, I'd say educated whites are the most likely to have an awareness of Sikhs.
    • No (unless they live near the White Sikh headquarters in New Mexico).   While Sikhs are a tiny minority compared to Punjabi Sikhs. Most of the white Sikhs are people who were hippies in the 60s and 70s when eastern spirituality was a big thing and they somehow came into contact with "yogi" Harbhajan Singh or other white Sikhs. As far as I am aware, white Sikhs are not really passing Sikhi on successfully to their children/grandchildren. Once that old generation is gone, white Sikhs will probably have an even more negligible presence.
