Great uprala by this group to spread gurmat daily , today's entry:

TWO TYPES OF PEOPLE, TWO PATHS

It is repeatedly indicated in the Gurbani that there are only two different groups of people living together on earth: the Gurmukhs (the followers of Truth and truthful living, one who applies the Gur-Shabad to his daily life, etc.) and the Manmukhs (the deniers of Truth and truthful living, one who does not apply the Gur-Shabad to his daily life, etc.). The SGGS asks us to become the Gurmukhs.

While animals can follow only their natural instincts, the man is blessed with the faculty of Viveka (the power to discriminate between truth and false or right and wrong) to choose between the two paths available to him – 1) the path of “ਪਰਵਿਰਤਿ – Paravirti”, and 2) the path of “ਨਿਰਵਿਰਤਿ – Niravirati”.

25aa.png?_nc_eui2=AeEjXKNfw8kEFJrrCuwaULਦੋਵੈ ਤਰਫਾ ਉਪਾਇ ਇਕੁ ਵਰਤਿਆ ॥ ਬੇਦ ਬਾਣੀ ਵਰਤਾਇ ਅੰਦਰਿ ਵਾਦੁ ਘਤਿਆ ॥ ਪਰਵਿਰਤਿ ਨਿਰਵਿਰਤਿ ਹਾਠਾ ਦੋਵੈ ਵਿਚਿ ਧਰਮੁ ਫਿਰੈ ਰੈਬਾਰਿਆ ॥ ਮਨਮੁਖ ਕਚੇ ਕੂੜਿਆਰ ਤਿਨ੍ਹ੍ਹੀ ਨਿਹਚਉ ਦਰਗਹ ਹਾਰਿਆ ॥:
The One Lord created both sides (or types i.e., the Gurmukhs, the Manmukhs, etc.) and pervades the expanse. He manifested the words of the Vedas (ਬੇਦ ਬਾਣੀ), and (also) arguments in them (i.e., arguments between the different schools of philosophies or thoughts e.g, dualistic versus non-dualistics, etc.). Paravirti (ਪਰਵਿਰਤਿ: ਜਗਤ ਦੇ ਧੰਧਿਆਂ ਵਿਚ ਖਚਿਤ ਹੋਣਾ, worldly ways, obsession with involvements in Maya, attachment, possesiveness, inclination, tendency, addiction, trend, pursuit, activitiy, etc.) and Niravirati (ਨਿਰਵਿਰਤਿ: ਦੁਨੀਆ ਤੋਂ ਉਪਰਾਮ ਰਹਿਣਾ, ਜਗਤ ਤੋਂ ਨਿਰਲੇਪ ਰਹਿਣਾ – to remain detached from the world, etc.) are the two paths (ways, etc.) God has created; He is also Dharma between the two. But the foolish Manmukhs deal only with the filth (of Paravirti); they surely end up losing the Spiritual Realm (ਉਹ ਪ੍ਰਭੂ ਦੀ ਦਰਗਾਹ ਵਿਚ ਬਾਜ਼ੀ ਹਾਰ ਜਾਂਦੇ ਹਨ) (sggs 1280).

25aa.png?_nc_eui2=AeEjXKNfw8kEFJrrCuwaULਗੁਰਮੁਖਿ ਪਰਵਿਰਤਿ ਨਰਵਿਰਤਿ ਪਛਾਣੈ ॥:
By becoimg the Gurmukh, (one) knows Paravirti and Niravirti – ਪਰਵਿਰਤਿ ਨਿਰਵਿਰਤਿ (sggs 941).

The first is the path of “ਪਰਵਿਰਤਿ – Paravirti” (from the Sanskrit word Pravrtti – प्रवृत्ति) which indicates possessiveness or worldly attachment: man’s natural inclination (worldliness, tendency, addiction, trend, etc.) to engross in the worldly pursuits (ਜਗਤ ਦੇ ਧੰਧਿਆਂ ਵਿਚ ਖਚਿਤ ਹੋਣਾ) and activities by remaining centered in his ego-sense (“I-am-ness”) and obsession with his involvements in Maya. This thought-condition promotes in man acquisitive tendency which is responsible for fueling his material desires, sensuousness, grief, fears, greed, selfishness, impulse, restlessness, indolence, inertia, dullness, negligence, forgetfulness, unenlightened existence, inactivity, headlessness, lethargicness, stormy behavior, agitation, fierce competition, power struggle, rat-race, hunger for status etc. The rise of the psychological ego — relative nature; the seat of “Pravrtti” — is the first misapprehension projected by ignorance, resulting in the non-apprehension of Reality. “Paravirti” keeps us in bondage by the chain of desire-action-goals of life.

25aa.png?_nc_eui2=AeEjXKNfw8kEFJrrCuwaULਪ੍ਰਵਿਰਤਿ ਮਾਰਗੰ ਵਰਤੰਤਿ ਬਿਨਾਸਨੰ ॥:
Engrossed in worldly ways (ਪ੍ਰਵਿਰਤਿ), one is ruined (sggs 1355).

25aa.png?_nc_eui2=AeEjXKNfw8kEFJrrCuwaULਪਰਵਿਰਤਿ ਮਾਰਗੁ ਜੇਤਾ ਕਿਛੁ ਹੋਈਐ ਤੇਤਾ ਲੋਗ ਪਚਾਰਾ ॥ ਲਉ ਰਿਦੈ ਨਹੀ ਪਰਗਾਸਾ ਤਉ ਲਉ ਅੰਧ ਅੰਧਾਰਾ ॥:
The more you walk in the ways of the material world (ਪਰਵਿਰਤਿ ਮਾਰਗ), the more you try to please people. Until the heart is enlightened, one gropes in the darkness of ignorance (sggs 1205).

25aa.png?_nc_eui2=AeEjXKNfw8kEFJrrCuwaULਨਹ ਚਿੰਤਾ ਮਾਤ ਪਿਤ ਭ੍ਰਾਤਹ ਨਹ ਚਿੰਤਾ ਕਛੁ ਲੋਕ ਕਹ ॥ ਨਹ ਚਿੰਤਾ ਬਨਿਤਾ ਸੁਤ ਮੀਤਹ ਪ੍ਰਵਿਰਤਿ ਮਾਇਆ ਸਨਬੰਧਨਹ ॥:
Do not worry so much about your Mother, father, siblings, spouse, children, friends, and all those people who are related (to us) because of the possession with involvements in Maya (ਪ੍ਰਵਿਰਤਿ ਮਾਇਆ ਸਨਬੰਧਨਹ), do not worry about them (i.e., to worry about all and any is useless) (sggs 1355).

The other path is termed as “ਨਿਰਵਿਰਤਿ – Niravirati” (or ਨਿਰਵਿਰਤਿ – from the Sanskrit word Nivritti – निवृत्ति). It literally means renunciation of the worldly attachment — true detachment from the fleeting world and its gross objects (ਜਗਤ ਤੋਂ ਨਿਰਲੇਪ ਰਹਿਣਾ), including one’s kith and kin. It is the abstraction or withdrawal of the senses from sensory pursuits, without which transcending of Maya (illusion, conditioned consciousness etc.) is not possible. Simply put, it is abandoning one’s lesser self or relativist consciousness to actualize his Higher or Spiritual Self (Aatmaan or “Joti-Svaroopa”). Accordingly, the state of “Niravirati” gives rise to inner peace, balanced joy or happiness, humility, contentment, selflessness, tranquility, inner purity, intuitive wisdom, pure intelligence, noble activity, goodness, enlightenment, tolerance, forgiveness, insight, empathy, inner peace, expanded creativity, reverence, compassion, universal love, reflection, serenity, poise, meditation, contemplation, understanding, and so on. It makes us introspective and discriminative (Viveka Budhi), leading to virtues and righteous conduct. The state of “Niravirati”, thus, is the mental strength which leads to complete obliteration of the ignorance, doubts, and misunderstanding, resulting in knowledge of the true Self (Joti-Svaroopa) and abidance in the true Self.

Clearly, it is up to us as to how we exercise our freedom of choice — to better ourselves through liberation from ignorance or wallow in the quagmire of bondage. Those established in the thought-condition of “Paravirti” are the Manmukhs (materialistic, self-willed, denies of the Truth, etc.), and those soaked in the state of “Niravirati” are the Gurmukhs (Spiritual Beings, Enlightened, follower of the Truth, etc.) in the Gurbani. Manmukhs live in forgetfulness of their spiritual nature, whilst Gurmukhs ever abide in it. Without knowing the true blissful nature of the Self, the majority of humanity (more than 99.9 percent) out of ignorance is said to be caught in “Paravirti”: the whirlpool of worldly or unenlightened existence.

today's entry :

BEAUTY

They alone are Beautiful and Attractive (i.e., of Divine Life or Aatamic-Jeevan) who ever abide in Holy Communion.
Those who gather in this Divine Wealth (of Divine Life) -they alone become Deep, Thoughtful and Vast (sggs 132).

God is mentioned to be All-Beautiful or All-Attractive. Whatever He does is Beautiful. That is His Nature. He is True, Good and Perfect. The man — Aatmaan or the Mool — is also mentioned to be made in the true Image of That "Beauty" ("Joti-Svaroopa"). The practical implication is this: if the Mool (Source, Origin, Jot...) is That, then it must also be of the nature of unsurpassed "Beauty". This gives rise to the following question, if the Mool is All-Beautiful then why the man becomes deeply entangled in an ordinary material consciousness ("Haume" or false ego-sense: lust, greed, etc.) and gets so tarnished?

25aa.png?_nc_eui2=AeEjXKNfw8kEFJrrCuwaULਊਚਉ ਥਾਨੁ ਸੁਹਾਵਣਾ ਊਪਰਿ ਮਹਲੁ ਮੁਰਾਰਿ ॥: Oocho thaan suhaavanaa oopar mahal muraar: Upon that Highest Plane of Sublime Beauty, stands the Divine Realm (sggs18).

25aa.png?_nc_eui2=AeEjXKNfw8kEFJrrCuwaULਹਰਿ ਹਰਿ ਰੂਪੁ ਸਭ ਜੋਤਿ ਸਬਾਈ ਹਰਿ ਨਿਕਟਿ ਵਸੈ ਹਰਿ ਕੋਲੀ ॥: Har har roop sabh joti sabaaee har nikatt vasai har kolee:
The Beauty, God's Light, is present in all; thus He dwells near by, close at hand (sggs ).

First, what is this "Beauty" the Gurbani referred to? In nutshell, the essence of "Beauty" is eternal Bliss ("Anand"). Whatever one perceives in the state of Bliss is Beautiful. To the contrary, whatever is perceived through tarnished consciousness is "Mailu" or "filth". In other words, when the connecting link between Aatman and Parmaatam is corroded, the "Beauty" becomes dimmed or obscured.

25aa.png?_nc_eui2=AeEjXKNfw8kEFJrrCuwaULਜਪਿ ਜਪਿ ਕਰਹਿ ਅਨੰਦੁ ਜਨ ਅਚਰਜ ਆਨੂਪੁ ॥:
Jap jap karahi anand jan acharaj aanoop: Meditating and meditating on the embodiment of Wonder and Beauty, His humble servants are in Bliss (sggs 677).

25aa.png?_nc_eui2=AeEjXKNfw8kEFJrrCuwaULਹਮਰਾ ਚਿਤੁ ਲੁਭਤ ਮੋਹਿ ਬਿਖਿਆ ਬਹੁ ਦੁਰਮਤਿ ਮੈਲੁ ਭਰਾ ॥: Hhamaraa chit lubhat mohi bikhiaa bahu duramati mail bharaa:
My consciousness is lured by emotional attachment and corruption; it is filled with evil-minded filth (sggs 799).

Simply put, this "Beauty" mentioned in the Gurbani is none other than the constant abidance in the Mool within (Source, Origin, Jot...). It is through the mirror of Divine Qualities that one is able to behold his own true Beauty. This "Beauty" alone is — only the Mool is, whence the phenomenal world emerges like a magic show due to the movement of the deluded mind.

25aa.png?_nc_eui2=AeEjXKNfw8kEFJrrCuwaULਪ੍ਰਾਤਮਾ ਪਾਰਬ੍ਰਹਮ ਕਾ ਰੂਪੁ ॥:
Soul (ਜੀਵਾਤਮਾ) is the form of Paarbrahm (sggs 868).

25aa.png?_nc_eui2=AeEjXKNfw8kEFJrrCuwaULਨਿਜ ਭਗਤੀ ਸੀਲਵੰਤੀ ਨਾਰਿ ॥ ਰੂਪਿ ਅਨੂਪ ਪੂਰੀ ਆਚਾਰਿ ॥ ਜਿਤੁ ਗ੍ਰਿਹਿ ਵਸੈ ਸੋ ਗ੍ਰਿਹੁ ਸੋਭਾਵੰਤਾ ॥ ਗੁਰਮੁਖਿ ਪਾਈ ਕਿਨੈ ਵਿਰਲੈ ਜੰਤਾ ॥੧॥: Nij bhagtee seelvantee naar. Roop anoop pooree aachaar. Jitu grihi vasai so grihi sobhaavantaa. Gurmukh paaee kinai viralai jantaa:
Nij Bhagti is akin to a sweet (natured-ਮਿੱਠੇ ਸੁਭਾਵ ਵਾਲੀ...) woman; whose beauty is incomparable, and whose character is perfect (complete). The House (of the Heart) in which (this woman) dwells is such a praiseworthy House (Beautiful, ਸੋਭਾ ਵਾਲਾ). But rare are those who, by becoming the Gurmukh, attain (this woman-ਨਿਜ ਭਗਤੀ or the state of Nij Bhagti) ||1|| (sggs 370).

Thus, it is the Spiritual or Inner "Beauty" referred here in the Gurbani, not external or physical looks (Maya). In other words, the Gurbani's Beauty is not in the beauty salon — eyeliners, nails, skin, make-up, hairdo, and so on. As time and again stressed in the Gurbani, the physical beauty (Maya) is fading, vanishing, changeful, deceptive, temporary or fleeting. Accordingly, the bodily beauty in the Gurbani is called "thief", "useless", "false", "enemy", or simply "fraudulent". To put it otherwise, any beauty other than the "Beauty" of the Truth or Pure Self is like decoration on a dead body; for one day it must finish. Therefore, identification with it is like living in a grave of the dead body. The Gurbani labors to make us understand the difference between the real "Beauty" and the fading beauty as follows.

25aa.png?_nc_eui2=AeEjXKNfw8kEFJrrCuwaULਰਾਜੁ ਮਾਲੁ ਰੂਪੁ ਜਾਤਿ ਜੋਬਨੁ ਪੰਜੇ ਠਗ ॥:
Raaj maal roop jaat joban panje thagg (sggs 1288).

25aa.png?_nc_eui2=AeEjXKNfw8kEFJrrCuwaULਰਾਜ ਕਪਟੰ ਰੂਪ ਕਪਟੰ ਧਨ ਕਪਟੰ ਕੁਲ ਗਰਬਤਹ ॥: Pride of power, beaut, wealth, and ancestry - are all fraudulent (sggs 708).

25aa.png?_nc_eui2=AeEjXKNfw8kEFJrrCuwaULਧਨੁ ਜੋਬਨੁ ਅਰੁ ਫੁਲੜਾ ਨਾਠੀਅੜੇ ਦਿਨ ਚਾਰਿ ॥: Wealth, youth and flower are guests for only a few days (sggs 23).

25aa.png?_nc_eui2=AeEjXKNfw8kEFJrrCuwaULਰੰਗ ਰੂਪ ਰਸ ਬਾਦਿ ਕਿ ਕਰਹਿ ਪਰਾਣੀਆ ॥: Rang roop ras baad ki karahi paraaneeaa: Plasure, beauty and delicious tastes are useless; what are you doing, O mortal? (sggs 322).

25aa.png?_nc_eui2=AeEjXKNfw8kEFJrrCuwaULਬਿਨਸੈਗੋ ਰੂਪੁ ਦੇਖੈ ਸਭ ਦੁਨੀਆ ॥:
(Your) beauty will vanish, as the whole world watches (sggs 325).

25aa.png?_nc_eui2=AeEjXKNfw8kEFJrrCuwaULਕੂੜੁ ਕਾਇਆ ਕੂੜੁ ਕਪੜੁ ਕੂੜੁ ਰੂਪੁ ਅਪਾਰੁ ॥:
Body, cloth, and immense beauty - are all false (vanishing, fraudulent, ਝੂਠ, ਧੋਖਾ, ਠੱਗੀ, ਨਾਸਵੰਤ, ਵਿਅਰਥ, ਮਾਇਆ ਦਾ ਮੋਹ). (sggs 468).

25aa.png?_nc_eui2=AeEjXKNfw8kEFJrrCuwaULਧਨੁ ਜੋਬਨੁ ਦੁਇ ਵੈਰੀ ਹੋਏ ਜਿਨ੍ਹ੍ਹੀ ਰਖੇ ਰੰਗੁ ਲਾਇ ॥: Dhan joban duyi vairee hoye jinhee rakhe rang laai:
Man's wealth and youthful beauty, which gave him so much pleasure, become his enemies (sggs 417).

The majority of us are unable to see the Wholesome "Beauty" of our True Nature for It has become covered with "filth" of ego or Haume. How it has become covered? The man is endowed with free will or free choice. The scriptural texts indicate it was not God's purpose for people to suffer or be fearful. One suffers when his ego-guided mind no longer does God's Will ("Hukam"). As we humans are endowed with free will, we have the ability to choose. We also have the ability to discriminate between good and bad or true and false or right and wrong. We are not made like machines or robots. Also, we are not made like animals, who are guided mainly by their instinct. We have the Divine Gift of free choice and discrimination to respond to evil or the unwholesome temptations of the sense-objects or the temptation of the "Beauty" of the Mool. Therefore, while we humans have this wonderful gift of free choice, we must accept the consequences of our choice.

25aa.png?_nc_eui2=AeEjXKNfw8kEFJrrCuwaULਜੈਸਾ ਕਰੇ ਸੁ ਤੈਸਾ ਪਾਵੈ ॥ ਆਪਿ ਬੀਜਿ ਆਪੇ ਹੀ ਖਾਵੈ ॥: Jaisaa kare so taisaa paavai. Aap beej aape he khavai:
Man is rewarded according to his actions; as he sows, so does he eats or reaps (sggs 662).

25aa.png?_nc_eui2=AeEjXKNfw8kEFJrrCuwaULਜੇਹੀ ਸੁਰਤਿ ਤੇਹਾ ਤਿਨ ਰਾਹੁ ॥: Jehee surit tehaa tin raah:
As is (beings') awareness, so is (their) way (sggs 25).

On account of the wrong choices (ego-guided actions, Mayaic efforts...), we confound the Mool with the physical frame and develop attachment towards the illusory world of the senses (Maya). Thus, in ignorance of our True Nature — which is all "Beauty" — we collect the seashell mistaking it for silver! Once the True Nature (Pure Consciousness) gets so tarnished with the body-bound ego, the miraze-like universe of names and shapes streams forth like waves from the see.

As the Gurbani repeatedly holds, we are That "Beauty" Itself — Jot-Svaroopa. Therefore, the Gurbani's advice to mankind is to become Gurmukh (Spiritual Being...), and then see one's own "Beauty" within. The more one comes closer and closer to this "Beauty", the more he will be in Love with It. In other words, the real Wisdom is the comprehension of this "Beauty", which remains ever-fresh. It is told the moment one becomes linked to this "Beauty" (one's True Essence) within — the state of Truthfulness or the state of absorption in Naam- or Shabad-Consciousness — one's body-mind-intellect apparatus blossoms forth with the Natural "Beauty", which never fades. In other words, external beauty becomes meaningful only when one realizes Spiritual Life or Spiritual Beauty within (Aatamic-Jeevan or Gurmukhtaa).

25aa.png?_nc_eui2=AeEjXKNfw8kEFJrrCuwaULਮਨੁ ਤਨੁ ਮਉਲਿਓ ਅਤਿ ਅਨੂਪ ॥ ਸੂਕੈ ਨਾਹੀ ਛਾਵ ਧੂਪ ॥ ਸਗਲੀ ਰੂਤੀ ਹਰਿਆ ਹੋਇ ॥ ਸਦ ਬਸੰਤ ਗੁਰ ਮਿਲੇ ਦੇਵ ॥: Manu tana moulio ati anoop. Sookai naahee shaav dhoop. sagalee roothee hariaa hoe. Sada basant gur mile dev:
My mind and body have blossomed forth, in utter, incomparable beauty. They do not dry out in either sunshine or shade; they flourish in all seasons. It is always springtime, when I am in Divine Communion (sggs 1180).

25aa.png?_nc_eui2=AeEjXKNfw8kEFJrrCuwaULਕੀਰਤਿ ਸੂਰਤਿ ਮੁਕਤਿ ਇਕ ਨਾਈ ॥: Keerat soorat mukat ik naaee:
Praise, Beauty and Liberation are in One Name (sggs 221).

25aa.png?_nc_eui2=AeEjXKNfw8kEFJrrCuwaULਰੂਪ ਰੰਗ ਦੇ ਨਾਮਿ ਸਵਾਰੀ ॥: Roop rang de naam savaaree:
God has blessed me with Beauty and Love; through His Name, I am exalted (sggs 1143).

25aa.png?_nc_eui2=AeEjXKNfw8kEFJrrCuwaULਹਰਿ ਕਾ ਨਾਮੁ ਜਨ ਕਾ ਰੂਪ ਰੰਗੁ ॥:
Hari Naam is the Beauty and Delight of Jan (Gurmukh, Daas, Bhagat...). (sggs 264).

25aa.png?_nc_eui2=AeEjXKNfw8kEFJrrCuwaULਨਾਨਕ ਨਾਮ ਵਿਹੂਣੀਆ ਸੁੰਦਰਿ ਮਾਇਆ ਧ੍ਰੋਹੁ ॥:
Nanak naam vihooneeaa sundar maya dhrohu: O Nanak, without the Divine Name, the beauty of Maya's illusion — world-appearance — is fake (sggs 707).

25aa.png?_nc_eui2=AeEjXKNfw8kEFJrrCuwaULਸਭ ਕੈ ਮਧਿ ਸਗਲ ਤੇ ਉਦਾਸ ॥ . ..: Sabh kai madh sagal thae oudaas...:
Live in the midst of all, and yet detached from all (Maya); Beauty, Intelligence, and the Realization of Reality; even-vision, and seeing all as One — says Nanak, these blessings come to one who chants and hears the Word (sgss 296)

    • YES! valid points. Life is a thing which can pull people into good / bad stuff. Religion, friends, fam and society can be factors. I too went down a "Make a quick buck" routine a few years back as I considered myself in a "Hard" life. Of course no one was hurt, injured or robbed in the process.
    • Iv listened to it before  I think it's real     he starts reciting the Quran as well 
    • @mods I'm not sure if this violates the forum rules. Please feel free to remove/alter if required. This is not a promotional post and I'm not affiliated with stack exchange. I've just submitted a proposal to them. Satsriakal people! I've created a proposal at stack exchange( the largest question/answer website on the web, similar to quora) to start a sub site devoted to Sikhism where people can post questions and receive answers from others. I request everyone to please follow the site to keep it active so that it can be pushed to the next stage(beta)and isn't deleted.
      Please click "follow" at the below link: https://area51.stackexchange.com/proposals/122932/sikhism Once the number of followers meet the minimum criteria, there will be a sub section on stack exchange devoted only to Sikhism, which I think will be a great thing. Let's give our best to make this proposal count. Since this is a new proposal, it also lacks sample questions. Please feel free to upvote the existing questions or add new ones related to Sikhism.
    • shes from a different community n anotha part of town. abt 15 yrs younger than the female elder as well. so y wud she be keepin their company? seems like she was either abandoned by her own for wateva reason n lost her way. maybe livin rough n desperate before bein targeted. or she knew the place well as a worker or regular customer n wanted a piece of the prize from wat wudve seemed a simple 'transaction'?
    • Sidh Gohst is a Sikh Prayer... (i hope u weren't being sarcastic)? Prayer came about when Guru Nanak Ji had an assembly (gohst) with Sidhs, hence the name Sidh Gohst. The prayer is like a Q&A session where Sidhs ask n Guru Ji answers... NOW! Who been telling me to stick t learning about Sidh Gohst?? 😔
