Fateh

I once heard Professor Darshan Singh do katha on when Amrit Vela is.

Their view is that Amrit Vela is at any time when we drink Amrit i.e. the nectar of Naam. This could be at any point during the day and does not necessarily need to be in the early hours of the morning.

They go on to say that we are more likely to drink the nectar of Naam in the early hours of the morning as we are unlikely to have other things on our mind and are more likely to be able to concentrate on nitnem, simran etc.

However, amrit vela could be during the day if we are able to concentrate on Waheguru Jee and get a break from our daily entanglements.

Guru Jee's updesh is that we remember Waheguru Saas Giraas.

May Guru Jee do his kirpa on us all so that we remember Waheguru Jee. ^_^

Bhul Chuk Maaf

thas wrong

amritvela is in the morining

i can give many gurbani refrences that say before sun rises and at the risingf of the sun

theres something about this time that vaheguru made, are bhagti is way better and counts for more too

like i can do japji sahib at 5 pm

but if i do at amrit vela, its way better for me

bhula chuka maf

Waheguroo Jee Ka Khalsa!

Waheguroo Jee Kee Fateh!!

According to the Sikh Rehat Maryada -

Meditating on Nam (Divine Substance) and Scriptures

Article IV

1. A Sikh should wake up in the ambrosial hours (three hours before the dawn), take bath and, concentrating his/her thoughts on One Immortal Being, repeat the name Waheguru (Wondrous Destroyer of darkness).

Before Dawn = when it is dark

In Winter time (like now in UK), Amrit-vela can be from 4am - 7am, and in winter it can be from 2.30am to 5.30am

So it is situational and depends on the Sunrise.

Generally it is dark outside at Amritvela and I usually use the street-lamps outside as an indicator - coz they usually switch off when sun light comes.

All Sikhs should strive to wake up Amritvela.

We are always talking about Guru Ji doing Kirpaa on us and through this Kirpaa we will feel or come close to Waheguru. So how do we get this kirpaa???

I remember Gyaani ji last sunday saying at the Gurdwara, that we got to make the environment right, the conditions have to be suitbale for kirpaa to take place. Hence, we wake up amritvela, remember waheguru morning, evening and nightime.

In hope that our life's environment and conditions is one suitable for getting Naam Ras and remembering Waheguru.

I asked Jathedaar Sahib of Takhat Damdama Sahib Ji about what happens if you accidently mis

s Amrit-vela because of work, over-slept or alarm didnt work. He said, well a Sikh should do full Nitnem within 24 hrs of the day compulsary. We should all strive and aim to wake up amrit-vela, but maharaaaj is all-knowning and all-loving and so that for a reason which you can't help, you didnt wake amrit-vela or you un-intentionally missed amrit-vela then don't feel guilty. In that case it makes sense that your Amrit-vela is the time you sing Gurbaani for that individual.

food for thought. i may be wrong. bhul chuk maaf karnee ji.

I am sure most of you have experienced this on a fairly regular basis.. When you become awake a little early (you know.. that time when you look at the alarm clock and think "i've got another 2/3 hours sleep") - thats waheguru waking you up at amritvela.
