Simran with mala

Recommended Posts

Is there any significance to doing simran with a mala? I do it with a mala, with every bead say waheguru. If I dont use mala I cant concentrate.  Is it just a habit that iv got my self into? 

Another thing about 10mins into doing it my body starts feeling weaker/lighter it feels like my limbs are shaking, like a slight vibration. To stop that I lean myself against a wall or sofa.  

Another thing dont know why but my ears start popping!  A bit like when your in a aeroplane!  I hear these pops. Maybe I'm doing something wrong? 

Does anyone else have these things happen as well.

The being able to concentrate is the biggest reason for a Male. Otherwise get so sidetracked with thoughts, some might forget. Also it's a time out to the mind, like just have to do this amount. It's not forever

thanks for the video.  It really does help you concentrate, I'm thinking of getting a kara with beads as well

You eventually want to move past doing simran with a mala and start using your breath as the mala. Think of the mala as training wheels on a bike, it helps you in the beginning, but you eventually want to be able to ride free without the restrictions of the training wheels. Using a mala will restrict you from reaching the more upper avashtas. Its a great tool at the beginning but you want to eventually move on from it.

It is called Naam Abhyiaas for a reason! It is a exercise. Everyone has a different reaction, I have experienced this before.

Like the ears popping, it kind of hurts sometimes.

Yh, Ears popping or thumping, throat pain and headaches. I’ve been through these when I started my abhiyaas not that long ago. You’ll soon go past them. 
 

a gursikh told me it’s just your body adjusting to the naam or jot which is beginning to manifest. 
 

some people see lights or get  some pains in their stomach; some even have toilet problems. It’s just your body adjusting it’s self.

    • I won't dispute that you got yeast in India in 2015 from yeast flying around. But if you look at the wording of the original poster, BigTera, that's not what he said.  He implied that if you wear a turban, you'll get "yeast formation" as if it will spring up spontaneously: "All that heat and sweat from wearing a head covering all day gets trapped causing excess moisture and itching build up which makes dandruff worse. ie yeast formation." That's what I said doesn't happen, even in India. There are 1.3 billion people in India. 1.3 billion don't have yeast. There are 25 million or so Sikhs in India. Maybe 10 million keshadhari. 10 million don't have yeast. Some certainly do have dandruff or other problems, but so do non-Sikhs in the West. I mean, who do you think is the market for Head & Shoulders Shampoo? It's false and a slander on Guru's form to suggest that wearing a turban with long hair necessarily leads to dandruff and yeast.
    • Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh ji. Upon seeing a forum, I decided to get the sangat opinion too. I myself am a teen. I am 15. I love to go to gurdwara camps because you get a lot a laha and you get to learn how to be a better person. I am speaking about youths in my country Malaysia. When I go to camps, I speak to many people. They all become my friend. I am not sure of the male gender tho but I have a few guys and girls asking me if I am single or if I have a crush on someone or if I would like to be in a relationship. I always say to them that I am not here to find a partner and I am very very opposed with this type of thinking. I don't like it at all when I got to camps, only to find out the youth are interested in all nonsense about boyfriend and girlfriend and crush etc. 🤦 There some amazing souls too that I meet during these camps. Some youth like me also do sewa and come to camp to build a stronger relationship with guru maharaj. I am very blessed to have met these type of youth too. Probably I have matured thinking. I don't know but sometimes it's upsetting that it's very rare I get the true sangat from going to camps. For an instance, in a camp I would have to mix around people my age ( in the teens) and I can't be sitting around people with the age of 20's above. It would look really odd. But maharaj does his kirpa and I always prefer sitting in the darbar rather than anywhere else because no one can disturb me there and many people avoid talking rubish in the darbar sahib because guru maharaj is watching them.what they don't realise is guru maharaj sees them everywhere, in the Langar hall or in the park. Writing this I have made a lot of mistakes, I am not good,no one is bad. Please forgive me sangat and teach me so that I can be a better person.     
    • Yeah, during this days, i have been closer to my elder sister as she always guides me how to tie a dastaar and she always invites me to rehraas sahib together. Eventough I am a little introvert, maharaj definitely will do his kirpa. Now I am wondering,how did my sister walk through the path because she was the first one in my family to be blessed with amrit. It must be really hard for her. It's easy for me tho thanks to maharaj. Anyways,thank you dear sangat for your advice and support. Maharaj always bless true sangat like you phena ji.
