Is a shower required again after going #2 before sitting in maharaj’s room with a Gutka to do path?

I thought if we have love for our guru like a child would with a father then having to shower again wouldn’t have to be a requirement especially if you’ve cleaned yourself and changed clothes and everything? Isn’t just one ishnaan necessary to sit and do paath next to your guru?

I'm no expert but heres my view , obviously cleanliness is important , but the our aim is to clean our inside by doing path with love . So our mind does not wander , focus on the Lord at all times. Dr Vir singh in his book Guru Nanak Chamatkar , mentions Sri Guru Nank Dev Ji , did his worldy chores and recitation of the Lords name side by side. So we should aim to do this , and key focus on love for the Lord. It mentioned as we have love for our children , our wife /husband , like the magnet attracts to iron , Guru Nanak Dev Ji Maharaj had much much more love for the Lord. Based on this our aim should be recite Gurbani so it hits our heart and love for the Lord is ignited.

So based on this , and your spiritual level you would automatically react accordingly based on how you see Gurbani , the shabad.

Just to give you an example of Iceland where everyone has to scrub themself before using their hot springs. The reason Icelanders are so adamant is, in fact, purely hygienic.

Please do take a quick shower again. It only takes 5-10 min. If you have already taken a shower in the morning, then the next shower can be very brief with focus on pelvic area, face, hands, feet and armpits.

Just to inspire you. Daas knew a Hajoori Nanaksari Ragi. He said that at times he had to take a shower four(4) times in a day as hygiene protocols are very strict when it comes to Nanaksar Maryada.

Base your decision using Gurbani, it says: 

ਦੇਹੀ ਧੋਇ  ਉਤਰੈ ਮੈਲੁ 

By merely washing the body, one's filth is not removed.

 

and 

 

ਵਸਤ੍ਰ ਪਖਾਲਿ ਪਖਾਲੇ ਕਾਇਆ ਆਪੇ ਸੰਜਮਿ ਹੋਵੈ 

They wash their clothes, and scrub their bodies, and try to practice self-discipline.

ਅੰਤਰਿ ਮੈਲੁ ਲਗੀ ਨਹੀ ਜਾਣੈ ਬਾਹਰਹੁ ਮਲਿ ਮਲਿ ਧੋਵੈ 

But they are not aware of the filth staining their inner being, while they try and try to wash off the outer dirt.

Yes, you are right ji. But then again that does mean that we start living like habshi with jattavan etc. Guru Sahib jee told us to keep our body pure - keep it clean. One of our kakkar is comb to keep our hair neat and clean 24/7.

General rule that most Singhs will tell you:

1) If just a gutka sahib, you have to have showered that day.

2) If sitting in tabia of Guru ji, and you did #2, you need to have showered again.

 

Also, I think you're fooling yourself if with your line that if you're like a child you don't need to shower. I think you might want to flatter yourself that you're like a child, but face it, none of us is. All of us are filled to the brim with envy, hatred, anger, etc. and then we fool ourselves that were are just naive children.

Hunji Singh Ji, I agree, keep the body clean, be respectful towards to Gurbani, Gutka Sahib, especially when sitting in Maharaj's hazuri. However, what really needs to be washed is on the inside. May we all never forget that.

Bilkuj ji. Inside clean is the ultimate goal for all Sikhs.

    • Vaheguru ji ka khalsa Vaheguru ji ki fateh Oh no.Thats a mistake to let them in your house.They probably had bad intentions for you.For example they are jealous or something and by letting them in your house it's like giving them permission to do black magic on you.I think you mentioned before that you get scared to go to a room to do Amritvela?If this is the case please do not fear it.If you let it stop you from going to do Amritvela,then it will stay longer.If you do your 5 banis during Amritvela, it wont be able to live in that environment. You also mentioned that you drank something from them?Honestly,not to scare you but they could have done black magic to the drink.So I would give 2 solutions based on my experience.Firstly, as soon as you get the chance take amrit with your daughter.Secondly do about 5 Chaupai Sahib a day.I will give you an example as to why you should do 5 Chaupai Sahib.Something like that has happened to me before.It went to an extent where when I am in a room,something would start knocking the door and the door would kinda move.So I did 2 Chaupai sahib for only 1 day and then did ardas to Guru ji for protection.After just that 1 day of 2 Chaupai sahib  I have never experienced it again.So if you do 5 Chaupai Sahib for awhile,the spirit will leave your house.Chaupai Sahib is very powerful.Why I'm telling you to do 5 Chaupai Sahib is because in your case it's a slightly bigger problem since it tried to come for you but it will go away.Dont worry and just have faith in the Creator.He will protect his Gursikhs.

    • a lot of it is spent on badal's chaa
    • The Naad is also known as Nam, as Sat nam, as Amrit Bani, as Sachee Bani,  Shabad, Dhur kee Bani, and many other  different terms,  but all referring to the same ultimate reality.   In the Bani we see: ਅੰਮ੍ਰਿਤ ਬਾਣੀ ਹਰਿ ਹਰਿ ਤੇਰੀ ॥ Anmrith Baanee Har Har Thaeree || The Word of Your Bani, Lord, is Ambrosial Nectar.   ਸੁਣਿ ਸੁਣਿ ਹੋਵੈ ਪਰਮ ਗਤਿ ਮੇਰੀ ॥ Sun Sun Hovai Param Gath Maeree || Hearing it again and again, I am elevated to the supreme heights.   Our Nam Simran as per the teachings in the Bani, is to make us pure enough to be able to have the darshan of  the Jot this Nam/Naad and at the same time eliminate the wax of our sins upon our minds/souls, in order to listen this divine melody within us by His kirpa. That is why  Third Patshahee says: Nam jiske mun vaseeya, vajeh Shabad ganere.   Once,  we get focused with Simran within, then only can we listen the Shabad and can see its unlimited refulgence, known as darshan. The importance of Naad or Nam, Shabad, or Amrit Bani  is supreme, for it is only by listening to it, we are carried to higher and subtler planes of consciousness, crossing maya and Kal. Gurbani tells us: Nanak Nam jahaaz hae, jinee chareeya se utareeya paar. It is by listening this Anhad Bani, or Naad, that we board on the jahaaz of Nam, thus reach our nijh ghar in Sach Khand. That´s it.
