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.

    • Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh   Khalsa ji, Dhan Dhan BrahamGiani Pooran Mahapurak Sant Baba Thakur Singh Ji Never ever lied. If they said it then and you beileved it or chose to stay quiet. why all of a sudden the change?  Shaheed Baba Deep Singh Ji were 80!! when they got the message of incoming invasion. So is sant ji is under 80 then why would it be too late? also if it was lets say sant ji was 100 then your argument would make sense. instead now just based of the past, they still have time to come.    Thanks, bhul chuk maaf karna ji    
    • In the end, the volatile nature of the region and the demographics means that it will NEVER be any sort of stronghold/safe haven for Sikhs compared to other places across the border. But if the principle of safety in numbers and support networks have any truth, refugee Sikhs may well prefer these locations over others. Only rose tinted glasses wearers (of which there are MANY) would blindly consider the place as any sort of friendly safe haven, and experiences with paks in other nations (like the UK) give a strong indication of how we are perceived by many from the region.  We've got a problem with simple-mindedness and gullibility, but hopefully people will learn not to be victims of this.  Right now, for economic reasons (and maybe political ones too?), it serves p'stan to open up these places. It's on our people to make the most of this and implement whatever security measures are appropriate. Having ears and eyes in the region isn't a bad thing either. Yes, things can change suddenly and quickly, say if some hard-line cleric gets in power. Much like the shift from Akhbar to his son Jahunghira. Events in India like attacks on mosques outside of Punjab can also cause a sudden change too. This happened in Afghanistan with the attack on the Babri mosque for example.  If nothing else it can serve as a point for Afghan-pak Sikhs to get closer to the majority panth in Panjab proper.  
    • Not sure whether the displays of affection and respect towards sikhs by the pakistani Punjabi people are authentic reflection of what lies in their hearts. Because if it were the case, surely Sikh population in pak wouldn't have dwindled to what it is today OR perhaps and this could be the case that only the Punjabi speaking Pakistanis of Punjab province find likeness in sikhs across the border because of similar language and to a degree culture, and the apparently sweet memories of Maharaja Ranjit Singhs just rule . I suspect it's mostly the Urdu speaking, deobandi affiliated crowd of pak that creates most islamist problems in both India and pak.  Whatever maybe the case Lahore has always fascinated me because of its irreplaceable place in Sikh history. It's a place both loved and hated by sikhs because of obvious historical reasons. 
    • Awesome post!   This one is especially great in details of a class environment. Look at the bottom left corner here. The kid in yellow appears to be smacking up the other one for breaking his water bucket. lol! Then on the right corner another kid appears to be punishing a classmate with the old kukkar move.  Are the ones in the middle are making pens (or kalams)? 
    • I remember something appearing on the market that was supposed to have been from the library a few years back. Can't remember much about it though.   As for what has been returned (as per claims), hasn't the SGPC learnt its lessons yet and digitised them and made people aware of what we have?   Why do these people sit on these things and not inform the panth of what we have? I know the average illiterate/semi-illiterate apna wouldn't be interested but lots of us would, including (if not especially) in the diaspora.
