How to do paath, where to start?

Recommended Posts

Guest kaur0810

SSA to all.

Recently ive been wanting to do paath and include it in my daily routine but im not sure where to start? I am a university student and im very depressed, i also cant read or write in the punjabi language which is making it even more difficult for me to do paath. As of right now, i just play the live kirtan from youtube to help relax myself during the day and before bed. I understand that it is important not only to recite paath but to fully understand it too. Can you please help me, where should i start? how often should i do paath? what should i listen to, try reciting and remembering?

Hi,

I recently started learning Punjabi, through Basics of Sikhi youtube channel.

its very easy it just takes a few hours to memorize the letters and vowels.

id start at learning punjabi first then reciting kirtan sohila in punjabi at night as its the shortest prayer.

Start off by listening to japji sahib, go on YouTube and search japji sahib by Bhai Jarnail Singh that’s the shud uchaaran, DON’T JUST LISTEN TO IT, the video has the gurmukhi on the screen and go through each word with Bhai sahib. Look at the screen to remain alert and if you want to at another time read the English translation which is under the gurmukhi script on the same video. But when you want to listen to paath, go through each word with Bhai sahib on the video. 
 

The optimum and most beneficial time to receive the most fruits from bani is at amritvela 2am to 6am. Start off by getting up a little later such as 5, have a shower and listen to paath, after listen or recite the Ardas, and pray to maharaj from your heart to bless you with the ability to wake up amritvela again. 
 

GO AND LEARN SANTHIYA at a gurdwara. Don’t  learn Punjabi at a school or something, learn Gurmukhi santhiya from a gurdwara, are you from the uk? I can send you Gurdwaras where Damdami taksal teach santhiya. 
 

When you feel depressed listen to chaupai sahib, this is a very powerful bani, and it’s only 5-7 mins long. Listen to the bani and remember the words, you’ll soon remember them however you must pay attention to the paath and look at the shabads on screen. Whenever depressed, lonely, low on sikhi or in times of happiness recite this beautiful bani. 
 

I would suggest to listen to japji sahib and chaupai sahib in the morning. Japji sahib is a long bani for any beginner so don’t feel let down if you can’t listen to all of it, however do an Ardas to maharaj that they give you the strength to complete the paath. Start to listen to the paath with the intention to complete it all. 
 

Smaller banis to listen to if you can’t listen to japji sahib or banis you can add to once listening to japji sahib (even better):

- Chaupai Sahib

- Shabad Hajaare

- Shabad Hajaare P10

- twai prasaad svaiye (sraavag sudh)

- twai prasaad svaiye (dinan ki pratipal) 

And many more!!! 
 

The most powerful thing you can do is a Ardas. Either in english or Punjabi pray to maharaj to help you and give protection. 

Dukh Daaru Sukh rogh bheyaa (Pain is a medicine which will ultimately give you peace). You are in pain, but now you are receiving your medicine (bani/naam) and you will ultimately have peace. 
 

Don’t give up on maharaj, they will never give up on you. 
when you take one step towards guru ji, he will run a thousand steps towards you. The first is listening to bani, then learning bani, then reciting bani daily and ultimately becoming bani (implementing all of the gurus teaching within your life). 
 

Begin your spiritual journey to guru ji, this is why you were given this human life. 
 

bhul chuk maafi 

Gurfateh ji.

    • Anyone have this not on scribd?
    • It goes both ways. If you hear the Islamic narrative they also prob up Islamic invaders and rulers as benign. You should hear what they say about an invader like Muhammad Bin Qaasim who is hailed as a hero and who they claim just came to save a few Muslim women while the defender Raja Dahir is portrayed as an evil scheming, degenerate pervert. But historic Muslim sources like the Chachnama convey a different story and testify how the invading Muslim Arabs had taken thousands of Hindu Sindhi women back with them.    Or look at how they view Aurangzeb. They shamelessly justify his hate  and war crimes against the Hindus and Sikhs. Many even call him a Wali of Allah or a great saint much like how the Buddhists view King Ashok. He is universally respected by Sunni Muslims. He is basically the main reason why most Punjabi and Mirpuri Rajputs and Jatts are Muslims in Pakistan today.   The Hindu and Muslim grand narratives are very different. The Sikh grand narrative can best be read at the starting of Bhangu's Panth Prakash. Bhangu very elaborately explains the condition of India before Guru Nanak Dev ji took avtar and then what followed and how Sikhs got raaj by Vaheguru
    • see doing stuff like that is just stupid! but then again you cnt expect anything else from india.  marathas were deafed by afghans    but eventually without a doubt they took over india and made it into a hindu state again      iv heard that captain amrinder wanted to remove sikh ithiaas from punjab txt books? 
    • i really liked this movie    the last scene gave me goosbumps!        i wanna watch ajay devgans tanhaji next   
    • thanks I'll look into that
