Amrit vela and long hours

This is about my wife who has been getting up for amrit vela to read bani. It’s a good thing as she’s a lot calmer in herself, more happy. But she’s also more tired. 
 

Getting up for amrit vela means 5 hours’ sleep, 2 hours for amrit vela (starts at 4am, not counting ishnaan). Then gets ready to go to work, 1hr commute. 13 hour shift. Comes home. Eat. Goes to bed. 
 

She has started nodding off when driving, and on her days off, spends most of her time sleeping to catch up. 
 

Hours are fixed. Most of her colleagues live within walking distance of her workplace. She doesn’t want to move as we live in a nice area. She eats healthily but doesn’t have time for exercise because of looking after the house. I help out with chores as much as possible. 
 

I know as she builds up her kamaii she will get stronger, less tired and able to focus more. But she’s really struggling. I don’t want to stop her from keeping amrit vela as it’s benefitted her. 
 

What else could we do or try so she’s less tired?

Tell her try from 12.30am onwards, a powerful time. Do it for around 2.5 hours or however long, and go deep into the samadhi. She’ll knock out while doing simran once she’s gone deep into it.

    • I saw the video on TikTok I think. It was at Wembley Stadium and I was unable to bookmark/favourite it because Tiktok decided to refresh. It was the "mainstream" Chaupai Sahib you will hear at a Singh Sabha gurdwaras, usually so-called Ramgarhia gurdwaras and also for the past 100 year or so in Harimandir Sahib under the current committee system.  In other words, the sikhs who give up or quit at ਖੜਗ ਕੇਤ ਮੈਂ ਸ਼ਰਨਿ ਤਿਹਾਰੀ ॥ ਆਪ ਹਾਥ ਦੈ ਲੇਹੁ ਉਬਾਰੀ ॥ Lord of the Almighty Sword, provides a shield for my protection. With Your Hands you have saved me.   ਸਰਬ ਠੌਰ ਮੋ ਹੋਹੁ ਸਹਾਈ ॥ ਦੁਸ਼ਟ ਦੋਖ ਤੇ ਲੇਹੁ ਬਚਾਈ ॥੪੦੧॥ You bestow help on me at all places and rescue me from pain and the designs of my demons.401. Kharag kait mai sarann tihaaree. Aap haath dai leho ubaaree. Sarab thor mo hoho sahaaee. Dustt dokh té leho bachaaee. (25) O The Lord of Sword, I seek Your protection. With Your Hands you have guarded me. At All Times be my Support. Save me from wickedness and pain. (25).
    • Bro, can you post from what line to what line they did paath of?
    • A decade later and I can show you all what the problem is. Both Khalsa Primary School and students from Pioneer Secondary Academy were invited for Vaisakhi celebrations, and they done a Chaupai Sahib paat. The problem is, they performed the politics ridden anti-dasam Bhasauria mutilated cut version of Benti Chaupai which is disrespectful to traditional puraatan samrpadaiye and mahapurakh. If bani politics is going to be used on children to skip lines from Dasam Pita ji dhan dhan Guru Gobind Singh ji's Benti Chaupai Sahib, that certain groups think it is ok to do, then @serious guptwas right to raise concerns a decade ago! IN 2024, when sangat is much more knowledgable about dasam bani and katha, when we have so many resources - then if we are not allowing our children to learn bani shud and let them choose their groups to follow later, then this raises RED FLAGS IN 2024!!!! AKAAAAL!
