ESSENCE: Guru Arjan Dev ji catalog so many rituals, practices and regimens followed by many and sundry. Varying from repitioous singing, wanderers singing, sitting in Samadhi at river banks, havans, holy baths, studying Vedas.

Guru ji state nothing is even at par. Above par is the contemplation of one creator.
This sabad cuts across many hotly contested and debated items like parroting, simran as chanting, yogic samadhis, fire rituals like havans, holy baths and many religious practices in India.

Wonderful clarity. All comments welcome.

Sat Sri Akal.

Ambarsaria ji,

Quote:
Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji Gurmukhi-Gurmukhi Dictionary
(1) ਉਪਾਸਨਾ, ਸ੍ਰਧਾ। (2) ਭਗਤਾਂ ਨੇ। (3) ਭਗਤਾਂ ਤੋਂ। (4) ਭਗਤੀ ਕਰਕੇ, ਭਗਤੀ ਸਦਾ। (5) ਭਗਤੀ/ਸਰਧਾ/ਪਿਆਰ ਕਰਨ ਵਾਲੀ। ਉਦਾਹਰਣ: ਅਨਦਿਨੁ ਭਗਤੀ ਰਤਿਆ ਮਨੁ ਤਨੁ ਨਿਰਮਲੁ ਹੋਇ॥ {ਸਿਰੀ ੩, ੩੭, ੩:੨ (27)}। ਹਰਿ ਕਾ ਭਾਣਾ ਭਗਤੀ ਮੰਨਿਆ ਸੇ ਭਗਤ ਪਏ ਦਰਿ ਥਾਇ॥ {ਸਿਰੀ ੩, ਅਸ ੧੯, ੩:੨ (65)}। ਗੁਰ ਸੇਵਕ ਕਉ ਬਿਘ

English Translation
n.f. devotion, worship, devotionhal love of deity; meditation, religious observances.
Bhagati is cultivating love and devotion to a personal God and as the last line says "O Guru Nanak, God loves such love and devotion (worship is love and devotion)." The shabad advocates for Bhagati and if you do your research you'll find chanting, meditation, worship etc often arise out of Bhagati and are even prescribed by Guru Nanak time and time again, as a way to connect to God and to subdue the inner ego.

Mahan Kosh data provided by Bhai Baljinder Singh (RaraSahib Wale); See http://www.ik13.com
There is no question about ਭਗਤ, ਭਗਤਿ (Bhagat, of Bhagati) are widely used in Indian religions and culture. In this sabad such is clarified that all examples given are not what is meant. Many do and understand the examples as extrapolation of Sikhism from common usage outside of Sikhism. That is against the message of Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji.

I do not believe it is a complicated sabad to understand. It is stated in your face style what is meant.
Practices noted NOT, unencumbered contemplation and understanding YES.
Feel free to quote a complete sabad with what your are basing your comments on and we can all review.

Sat Sri Akal.

Re: Sabẖhū ko ras har ho / ਸਭਹੂ ਕੋ ਰਸੁ ਹਰਿ ਹੋ

Ambarsaria ji,
Bhagati is a way of union with God through love and devotion. Now to cultivate love and evotion specific practices (upasana) are used: listening, singing, repeating, chanting, servicing, surrendering, etc. Bhagati in itself does not mean intuitive understanding. The intuitive understanding comes from doing Bhagati.

As for other shabads, I have already posted numerous such shabads during our previous interactions on mysticism and other threads. Please review them.

I will review if we need further dialog to extend and share understanding. Very fascinating fine lines with potential great divide and clarification.

Re: Sabẖhū ko ras har ho / ਸਭਹੂ ਕੋ ਰਸੁ ਹਰਿ ਹੋ

Bhagat Singh ji,

Guru Fateh.

You write:

Quote:
Bhagati is a way of union with God through love and devotion. Now to cultivate love and evotion specific practices (upasana) are used: listening, singing, repeating, chanting, servicing, surrendering, etc. Bhagati in itself does not mean intuitive understanding. The intuitive understanding comes from doing Bhagati.
By Union, I gather you mean the connection. Correct me if you have a different take on it. Or does it mean something totally different as one can never be disunited from the omnipresence of Ik Ong Kaar?

Why would one surrender to THE ONE who is in all of us and everywhere or by surrender,do you really mean is to get rid of me-ism?

I agree with the Listening,Singing, Reading, Understanding and Practicing the Guru Shabad to make our lives better and share that goodness with others. If by repeating/chanting you mean to engrave the message of Gurbani - as we do in our Nitnem- and breed goodness in our hearts and souls, then I agree with that too. But if you mean just parroting a couple of words from the 1429 pages of Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji, our only Guru then it is nothing more but one more mechanical ritual which Guru Nanak was against and so are the 1429 pages of Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji, our only Guru. There are no specific practices for a Sikh as you have mentioned in your post. However Hindus used them for some reasons, but Guru Nanak was against those as explained below.

The true Bhagati is understanding and practicing Gurbani in order to make this world better. Bhagati is not the one legged stance for hours and nor is it hanging like a monkey for hours as Guru Nanak mentions in Sidh Ghosht.

These are things these Hindus called as true Bhagatis and named themselves as Bhagats. What a true Bhagat is explained very well by Guru Nanak in Pauri 21. Guru Nanak clearly uses the word for Bhagat, "HONAH" which requires continues actions of sharing goodness. Guru Nanak on purpose did not use the word "BANANAH"- to have become because according to Sikhi it is neither a title nor a destination but to the contrary, unlike in Hindu theology.

You seem to be confused between the Hindu concept of Bhagati and the Sikhi one. You should learn to differentiate the two because there is a difference and it is in the Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji, our only Guru.

Please read the following described by Ambarsaria ji from Jap Pauri 21. Now, if you have a different interpretation about it, please share with us so we can all learn from it.

http://www.sikhphilosophy.net/jap-ji...tml#post158152

We will talk about your Shabads later on, once we have clarified the above.

I fail to understand one thing from you, that whenever you are challenged about what you write, you are kind enough to agree about the challenge and promise to respond which you have failed to do so far.

Is this the true Bhagati are you talking about?

Regards

Tejwant Singh

Haha Tejwant Singh ji, One is never disconnected from God either. Thus united and connected mean the same.
I will clarify that connected to me seems like a temporary thing where you cultivate a connection and then it breaks and you do so again. Whereas being united is a permanent thing. Where you intuitively see the Omnipresence of God always.

One need not actually be disunited/disconnected in order to feel disunited/disconnected. In other words, there maybe a diamond in one's pocket but until it is brought into awareness, one does not even know about it, and goes on living as if there was no diamond there.

Quote:

Surrender and ridding oneself of Me-ism also means the same. What are you surrendering if not the "me"?

Yes. It does both.

Guru Fateh.

you write:

If you have a diamond in your pocket then you should/must be aware of it. Now, if you have Zirconia in your pocket and you convince yourself that it is real diamond, then it is a different story all together.

Quote:

Well, then surrender is wrongly used as a term in the English translation of the Gurbani. Actually, we are looking for tools to get rid of Me-ism from Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji, our only Guru. There is no war between my Guru and myself, to the contrary. It is camaraderie, a very close friendship. One does not need to surrender to one's best friend but seeks his/her help

My Quote:
Quote:

Your response:

Quote:
Yes. It does both.
By both you do not mean parroting one or 2 words from the 1429 pages of Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji, our only Guru, I suppose but understanding Gurbani and putting it into practice.

But my main point of the post was your definition of Bhagat and Bhagati that you used in Sikhi which I challenged you about and you ignored to respond to that.

My post:
Quote:

Your response:

Quote:
"Which challenge was this?"
Just re-read our last interaction which took place several days ago in which I challenged you that you do not respond to what I ask you in my posts. After claiming you did. But after some self reflection,it was nice of you to admit that you do not and assured me that you would in the future.

Still waiting.

Tejwant Singh ji,
I actually did respond later (as I said I would) but on a different thread. Though I felt you did not understand that response (either). Anyway I am satisfied by your words in this thread that chanting and repeating "breed goodness in our hearts and souls".

I also agree with your definition of Bhagat and Bhagati hence I don't find it a challenge.

Edit: One relationship to God can be that of a friend (soulbride with husband lord) or it can be that of a Master-disciple where the disciple surrenders himself and his narrow understanding of reality in exchange for the understanding of the Master. Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji in different parts appeals to many such relationships including the mother/father- child relationship as well. These are emotions one cultivates in order to obtain connection and union, in the Bhagati method.
