    HOW TO TRANSCEND THE FIVE ELEMENTS AND REACH MOHLEDHAAR
    (THE ROOT)?


    OUR BODY IS MADE OF FIVE ELEMENTS(WATER,AIR,FIRE,EARTH AND
    EATHER/AKAASH).GURU ARJAN DEV JI IN sukhmani SAHIB VERY ELABORATELY
    DESCRIBES THE TECHNIQUE TO TRANSCEND THE FIVE ELEMENTS.
    1. AIR ELEMENT: GURUJI TELL US HOW TO CONCENTRATE THE MIND AND
    TRANSCEND THIS ELEMENT.THE ATMOSPHERIC AIR SOMETIMES FLOWS GENTLE AND
    IS AT OTHER TIMES FAST AND STORMY. THE PAON TAT (THE AIR ELEMENT)
    WITHIN THE BODY BEHAVES THE SAME WAY.ITS FLOW RISES AND EBBS. THE
    UNSTEADY BEHAVIOR OF AIR DISTURBS OUR MENTAL EQUILIBRIUM. WE NEED
    GURU SHABAD TO STEADY AND FOCUS OUR MIND IN THE VORTEX OF WIND WITHIN.

    2. WATER ELEMENT: AS A BOAT IS NEEDED TO CROSS A RIVER; SO, IS THE
    GURUSHABAD NEEDED TO FERRY MIND ACROSS THE WATER ELEMENT WITHIN THIS
    BODY.GURBANI SAYS.

    JIO PAAKHAAN NAAV CHARH TARAI
    PRAANEE GUR CHARAN LAGAT NISTARAI (PAGE 282)

    3. FIRE ELEMENT: TO PROTECT OURSELVES FROM THE ATMOSPHERIC HEAT, WE
    SEEK SHELTER IN THE SHADE. WE DO HAVE THE ELEMENT OF FIRE WITHIN THE
    BODY. GURU SHABAD PROVIDES SHADY SHELTER TO OUR MIND AND PROTECTS IT
    FROM THE HEAT OF THE FIRE WITHIN.

    TAH HAR KE NAAM KEE TUM OOPER CHHAAM ( PAGE 264)

    WHERE THERE IS AWESOME AND TERRIBLE HEAT AND BLAZING SUNSHINE,
    THERE ,THE NAME OF LORD WILL GIVE YOU SHADE.

    DHARTI TAT ( EARTH ELEMENT):AS WE NEED LIGHT TO GO THROUGH DARKNESS;
    SO WE NEED LIGHT OF GURU SHABAD TO SEE OUR WAY THROUGH THE DARKNESS
    OF THIS EARTH ELEMENTS WITHIN.

    SKY ELEMENTS: SPACE IS INFINITE AND DISTANCES VERY LONG.EMBARKING
    UPON A LONG JOURNEY WE NEED FOOD AND WATER FOR SURVIVAL.TO COMPLETE
    THIS LONG JOURNEY WITHIN THE INNER SPACE,WE NEED GURU GIVEN FOOD OF
    GURU SHABAD.

    BHAI GURDASSJI HAS ALSO WITTEN ON THE SUBJECT OF OVERCOMING THE
    INFLUENCE OF THE FIVE ELEMENTS.

    PAWAN PANI BAISANTRO DHARAT AAKASH ULANGH PAIYANA.

    TO CROSS THESE ELEMENTS, GURU MANTRA `' WAHE GURU''SHOULD BE CHANTED
    AS DETAILED BELOW:

    CHANT THE `WA'SOUND OF GURU MANTRA WITH COMPLETE FOCUS ON TONGUE
    WHILE ATTENTIVELY LISTENING TO THE SOUND `WA'. CHANT `HE' SHABAD WITH
    FOCUSED AWARENESS AT THE HEART CENTER AND LISTEN ATTENTIVELY TO THE
    SOUND `HE'. CHANT `GU' PART OF GURSHABAD WITH MIND FOCUSED AT NAVAL
    CENTER LISTENING WITH COMPLETE ATTENTION TO THE SOUND `GU'.
    CHANT `RU' PART OF GURSHABAD WITH MIND FOCUSED AT DHARAN `ROOT
    CENTER' WHILE ATTENTIVELY LISTENING TO THE SOUND `RU'..
    START THE CHANT `WA' AFTER BREATHING IN AND FINISH CHANTING `RU' IN
    THE SAME BREATH,THEN EXHALE AND START THE NEW CYCLE .LOUDLY CHANT AND
    LISTEN TO THE SOUND OF GURMANTRA FOR TEN TO FIFTEEN MINUTES.
    GRADUALLY, TONE DOWN THE CHANT AND GO SILENT AND JUST MENTALLY REPEAT
    THE GURMANTRA. LISTEN TO THE SOUND OF GURMANTRA EXCLUDING ALL
    EXTERNAL SOUNDS AND VOICES.WHEN WE BECOME ADEPT IN THIS METHOD, ONLY
    THEN SHOULD WE MOVE ON THE NEXT METHOD.
    NOTE : THIS TECHNIQUE HELPS STOP ALL MENTAL FLUX( DISTURBING FLOW OF
    THOUGHTS,FEELINGS AND EMOTIONS) AND MAKES THE MIND FOCUSED AND STEADY.

    Gitika Ji, what amazes you in the above post? Can you please explain? Thanks in advance.


    I am asking you this question because -
    • This is not Gurmat.
    • Calling self a Saint shows clearly how much saintliness is there.
    • This is a naked dance of ego, look at how shamelessly ego is using the term- ‘Gurmat Gyaan’ to display it.
    • This person is using Baba Siri Chand way of yoga saadhna, which was not considered by his own father- 'Guru Nanak Dev Ji'.
    • Any person who is reciting Siri Japji Sahib everyday or even occasionally should know- one does not have to learn any other way of bahgti other than coming under Waheguru’s Will along with remembering Him day and night.
    • Everything else is not needed, as truthful practice bears all the fruits effortlessly - “Suneay jog jugat tan bhed”
    • “Raaj leela tere naam banaaee Jog baneaa tera kirtan gaaee” is there any reason left to use yoga sadhna?

    Thanks for saving me trip onto Google for background on Baba Chand! and Yes, this is not the way of Shabd Guru. Even Nanaak Dev ji commented that the sadhana rituals of his day exhausted him and separated him from Waheguru.

    ipAwry ien ibiD imlxu n jweI mY kIey krm Anykw ] hwir pirE suAwmI kY duAwrY dIjY buiD ibbykw

    O Beloved, this is not the way to meet the Lord; I have performed these rituals so many times. I have collapsed, exhausted, at the Door of my Lord Master; I pray that He may grant me a discerning intellect.
