    Guru jis are asked about the control of wishes and desires. Also being asked is how to achieve such difficult tasks and connect with the creator.

    Let us review the following,

    Sidhas/Yogis ask:
    Guru Ji’s answers:
    Guru ji describe that it is the understanding that removes desires and distractions. The focus towards one creator shows the light. In creator’s blessing this way the hard to achieve is realized.

    What you think?

    Sat Sri Akal.

    PS: Please see the appropriate complete Shabad here,

    ''Bin danta ki khai sar''
    Without the 'danta' teeth. How can one eat(khai) sar(iron) ?

    They ask, how can you focus mind, or how can you escape the strangehold of maya ?
    To escape that influence is like eating iron without teeth. So, HOW can iron be eaten without teeth ?


    ''Mansa as shabad jalai''- through the word of the shabad,desires of the mind are Burnt awat and then ''gurmukh can find the True light of the lord Within''
    -(''Gurmukh, jyot nirantar pai'')
    OR -The Fire of the Guru's shabad has burnt and destroyed all the desires of the mind.

    This light deep within the gurmukh will pervade forever once it is lit.

    ''Tarai gun''- the 3 effects of maya (rajas, tamas and satas) are no where near and I can chew the unchewable iron without the maya overriding my mind.

    '' Nanak tere taranhaar''- (taran- to swim)
    Lord, he can help one across the unswimmable world ocean (reference to earlier in conversation of how one can swim across world ocean)

    NOTE- he cannot get across the ocean alone even if overpowering all maya and desires is acieved. But the Lord HELPS the one to get across.

    Luckysingh ji the light is always lit as soon as we are born but our mind's eye is too blind to see most of the time mundahug. By the way, the creator lights the light unconditionally, for all so called by society as the good, bad and the ugly.


    The creator treats all the same and lets them loose in illusion space. Some become so pious and charming, some so deranged and the others so awful. At the end of the day all return to be reshaped into something anew.

    Sat Sri Akal.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
