Reading gurbani doing Paath is not enough. This is not my own opinion. Gurbani clearly tells us:

ਪੜਿਐ ਮੈਲੁ ਨ ਉਤਰੈ ਪੂਛਹੁ ਗਿਆਨੀਆ ਜਾਇ।।੧।।

ਪੜਿ ਪੜਿ ਥਾਕੇ ਸਾਂਤਿ ਨ ਆਈ।।

 

And we can see this in many aspects. So many many people pray every day but still carry worries ,hate and anger in their minds. Why have I seen here many posts about amritdhaaris who are unhappy, have anxiety? 

No one!!! talks about Simran.  Yes gurbani is wonderful and powerful.

But if one only reads it, and only takes that giaan but doesn't do abhyaas kmai, simran it's just more ego

There's a big difference between reading gurbani and doing naam Simran meditation. There is a difference between reading an japji Sahib and doing Simran. 

Gurbani tells us to do naam Simran.

And it is manmukhta,it's foolish to say that for example sukhmani Sahib is more powerful than japji Sahib. That's so wrong. Every bani is equal powerful and great! I've seen enough people making differences between baania. That's just wrong.

 

Gurbani is the holy highest purest most truthful wisdom of our gurus and gurmukhs who met Vaheguru. They wrote it so that we can also meet Vaheguru. Because that's the goal of a Sikh. The goal of a Sikh is to meet,hear see Vaheguru before death. 

So the difference between doing Paath and doing Simran is:

Doing Paath /reading gurbani= reading spiritual wisdom, learning that giaan. (But one must think, reflect, follow what gurbani says) and you don't even gain that giaan if you don't focus/concentrate while doing Paath. One should listen to the own voice while doing Paath, this helps.

Doing Simran = washing the mind, removing vichaar/phurne (thoughts) , washing the ego haumai and sins off the mind , Simran is actually following gurbani.  While doing Simran one also must listen to the own voice while speaking out the Gurmantar Vaheguru. Otherwise the andar Di mail will not get washed off. That's why many people say I can't focus when I do Simran. It's because you don't focus on the Gurmantar,on your voice . And it's also because Maya and vikaar start to run more because they want to stop you to do Simran,but you must not focus on the Vikaar and thoughts, you must focus on the Gurmantar and your voice. Nothing else.

 

Reading gurbani but not doing Simran is like

reading the manual to build a protective house from a storm .  The manual says to meditate. Reader does not meditate but only stays reading the manual, the reader thinks that reading the manual is the meditation. But it's not . In the end, when the storm is there, the reader has no protection from the storm and suffers.

 

So when we read bani, we should concentrate and try to figure out what gurbani says. Then follow it and do Simran !!!

Vaheguru. 

I ask for maafi for mistakes.

ਗੁਰਬਾਣੀ ਸੁਣਿ ਮੈਲੁ ਗਵਾਏ ॥
gurbaanee sun mail gavaae ||
Listening to the Word of Gurbani, filth is washed off,

ਸਹਜੇ ਹਰਿ ਨਾਮੁ ਮੰਨਿ ਵਸਾਏ ॥੧॥ ਰਹਾਉ ॥
sahaje har naam ma(n)n vasaae ||1|| rahaau ||
and they naturally enshrine the Lord's Name in their minds. ||1||Pause||

 

True and maharaj agrees with u.

The more we read Gurbani the easier it becomes to do simran, so they work hand in hand, not just one or the other.

 

only question i have is when u hear great mahpurakhs nitnem of like 50+ japji sahibs etc like how do they do it

this pangtee doesnt seem reference to gurbani which is from nirankar directly but other texts, worldly books etc...reading gurbani alone will start simran inside but one should do with focus and strive to understand as much as they can

    • It's not even about religion anymore. Most of us are trying to survive out here in the West.  Myself dont care for Sikhi as much as I use to. Everything is in waheguru ji's hand whether or not this faith is going to survive in the coming years.  
    • Is it the end of SGPC? I mean there’s one in Punjab, one in Haryana and Delhi.  Recently Hazur Sahib removed 2 members of it. It was a British creation in the 1920s.
    • In the uk we have Ramgharia gurdwaras, in some places ther are called Ramgharia sabha! However, I think most gurdwaras and even sikhs calling themselves "Ramgharia" are scamming us as they have weak or no connections to Ramgharia misl, and are just using the fact that they are tarkhans they can use the Ramgharia term because Jassa Singh Ramgharia was from tarkhan background. Please prove me wrong!   Also, I have been observing gurdwaras since I was young. I remember when I was a child in the 80s and 90s, Singh Sabha gurdwaras still allowed shoes and langar was eaten on tables, in the times when the adults used to work all the time, doing double shifts etc. However in the 2000s we can see a change in Singh Sabha gurdwaras as well as some other gurdwaras, where shoes are no longer allowed, and we have a lot of space to sit on the floor and do pangat in langar.  It's really strange to see so many tables in gurdwaras after seeing langar done exclusivily on the floor gurdwaras in Panjab and India. Just look at Harimandir Sahib, 4 takht, and many other gurdwaras back home. Now, across London, Slough and Berkshire, midlands, I have noticed Ramgharia gurdwaras allow shoes into langar and have little or no accommodation for sitting on the floor. It is bizarre to see in Ramgharia gurdwaras, the sangat coming from doing sangat or matha tek in divan hall, and then putting on their shoes to go to langar. Like we are going to a restaurant or something! What is this, is it some kind of kenya/east africa sikh colonial army era tradition to keep doing this, even after the other gurdwaras have moved back to giving satkar and respect for langar maryada? Then we come to the scam, in the Ramgharia gurdwaras, there seems to be more links to East Africa sikhs than Ramgharia misl. There are more trim Singhs with Kenya paghs on Ramgharia gurdwara committees compared to more sabat surat Singhs on Singh sabha committees, from my observations in these England regions. You will find more kenya pagh and trim or fixo darhi, than bana walay Singh in these gurdwaras, again the Ramgharia label is scamming us, as Ramgharia is used for sabat soorat Singhs from the misl, especially those tuned to bana (and open beard is part of bana). Also, I have listened to Rehraas Sahib in some Ramgharia gurdwaras, and they read the disfigured bhasauria SGPC style of Chaupai Sahib (such as the way performed at Harimandir Sahib the past 100 years), skipping arril and the last lines of kabyo baach benti, which makes them more like a Singh Sabha gurdwara and far removed from being Ramgharia due to having similar disrespect towarda bani as Singh sabha gurdwaras, as Ramgharia misl would respect dasam bani and read the full kabyo baach benti. So the langar thing is bizarre, and now I think of it it's disrespectful. And the use of Ramgharia sikhs and Ramgharia gurdwaras term is a scam as they are anything but, as there is so much disrespect to be associated with the practices of Ramgharia misl! Even the fact they celebrate Maharaja Jassa Singh Ramgharia's birthday doesn't allow them any forgiveness or courtesy! This goes double for the Slough Ramgharia Singh Sabha, as they have a statue of Jassa Singh Ramgharia, and yet are their actions related to actual Ramgharia? Yeh, let's not fall for the scam! and sikhs that are sangat in those gurdwaras, really need to step up and get in those committees and change things for chardi kala! We need to see more chardikala Singhs running things, not trim Singhs and fixo Singhs!
    • Japji Sahib can be done anytime within 24 hours, but ideal time is before breakfast.  Ardaas after is optional but if you can make it necessary will be ideal. When it comes to paat more the merrier.  Meat / alc should be in separate rooms to Gutke Sahibs. It is possible no matter how small the house. WAIT! Isn't all food in the kitchen??  You can still do paat after meat n alc. Nothing wrong there... just wash yer hands! (Obviously).
