Bhai Anokh Singh Babbar was doing Rehras Sahib after his eyes were taken out and he had metal rods from his feet to his knees. 
 

The ideal Gursikh would be able to do Bhagti even in the most harshest times. 

I'm all for Bhagti 24 hrs a day. What I'm saying is while showering giving proper respect and focus on accomplishing Shudh Nitnem. Not sure I used the right word there. 

Like. I've done Aikido in the shower. I've done practice sword cuts in the shower. If it was the depth of my focus in training that'd be kinda limited. Not saying I didn't do a good cut, or have a great experience, but is that the same as getting clean first, dressed in your particular attire, sitting with full focus and doing extremely focused Nitnem?

I do Simran and Kirtan in the shower all the time. Just asking the op and subsequent posters, do you mean do your Nitnem in the shower? You'd need on demand hot water.

Do you think Nitnem should be done that way?

Or just any Gurbani for the joy that Gurbani brings period?

Actually it depends on the Sikh.

Akjs believe that nitnem must be done sitting all in one go. And must be done outloud similar to during amrit sinchaar.

But thankfully I wasn't told this by the panj cuz I do my nitnem whilst driving. Not ideal but what can you do?

Dear All,

SSA. I have a question. Can we do Paath during taking a bath? 

Of course it can. Just like Naam Jaap can be done anywhere at any time. God is All, nothing and no place is holy. Our bodies are Gods temple, we have chakras, the infinite pools of energy in our temple. You can do paath, you can talk to god, do naam simran when youre in the bath, walking, sitting etc. When you're working, you're doing seva so its naam anyway.

    • was researching this and came back to this thread. Also found an older thread:    
    • Net pay after taxes. If you don't agree, think about this: If you were a trader and started off in China with silk that cost 100 rupees and came to India, and you had to pay total 800 rupees taxes at every small kingdom along the way, and then sold your goods for 1000 rupees, you'd have 100 rupees left, right? If your daswandh is on the gross, that's 100 rupees, meaning you have nothing left. Obviously, you owe only 10% of 100, not 10% of 1000. No, it's 10% before bills and other expenses. These expenses are not your expenses to earn money. They are consumption. If you are a business owner, you take out all expenses, including rent, shop electricity, cost of goods sold, advertising, and government taxes. Whatever is left is your profit and you owe 10% of that.  If you are an employee, you are also entitled to deduct the cost of earning money. That would be government taxes. Everything else is consumption.    
    • No, bro, it's simply not true that no one talks about Simran. Where did you hear that? Swingdon? The entire Sikh world talks about doing Simran, whether it's Maskeen ji, Giani Pinderpal Singh, Giani Kulwant Singh Jawaddi, or Sants. So what are you talking about? Agreed. Agreed. Well, if every bani were exactly the same, then why would Guru ji even write anything after writing Japji Sahib? We should all enjoy all the banis. No, Gurbani tells you to do Simran, but it's not just "the manual". Gurbani itself also has cleansing powers. I'm not saying not to do Simran. Do it. But Gurbani is not merely "the manual". Reading and singing Gurbani is spiritually helpful: ਪ੍ਰਭ ਬਾਣੀ ਸਬਦੁ ਸੁਭਾਖਿਆ ॥  ਗਾਵਹੁ ਸੁਣਹੁ ਪੜਹੁ ਨਿਤ ਭਾਈ ਗੁਰ ਪੂਰੈ ਤੂ ਰਾਖਿਆ ॥ ਰਹਾਉ ॥ The Lord's Bani and the words are the best utterances. Ever sing hear and recite them, O brother and the Perfect Guru shall save thee. Pause. p611 Here Guru ji shows the importance of both Bani and Naam: ਆਇਓ ਸੁਨਨ ਪੜਨ ਕਉ ਬਾਣੀ ॥ ਨਾਮੁ ਵਿਸਾਰਿ ਲਗਹਿ ਅਨ ਲਾਲਚਿ ਬਿਰਥਾ ਜਨਮੁ ਪਰਾਣੀ ॥੧॥ ਰਹਾਉ ॥ The mortal has come to hear and utter Bani. Forgetting the Name thou attached thyself to other desires. Vain is thy life, O mortal. Pause. p1219 Are there any house manuals that say to read and sing the house manual?
    • All of these are suppositions, bro. Linguists know that, generally, all the social classes of a physical area speak the same language, though some classes may use more advanced vocabulary. I'm talking about the syntax. That is, unless the King is an invader, which Porus was not. When you say Punjabi wasn't very evolved, what do you mean? The syntax must have been roughly the same. As for vocabulary, do you really think Punjabis at the time did nothing more than grunt to express their thoughts? That they had no shades of meaning? Such as hot/cold, red/yellow/blue, angry/sweet/loving/sad, etc? Why must we always have an inferiority complex?
    • I still think about that incident now and then, just haven't heard any developments regarding what happened, just like so many other things that have happened in Panjab!
