    We need True Guru. Without SatGuru we cant achieve the liberation from the cycle of birth and death. Guru Ji tells us that without the Guru our true Self cant be known. Guru's Word has tremendous powers, undescribable powers. It sooths us and saves us from the terrible pains.

    In the Following Shabad Guru Ji tells us the importance of a True Guru. He also makes us aware of the fact that a blind/false Guru misleads his or her followers, those people who follow a blind Guru stay in the cycle of birth and death, they cant achieve liberation.

    Siree Raag, First Mehl:
    Listen, O deluded and demented mind: hold tight to the Guru's Feet.
    Chant and meditate on the Naam, the Name of the Lord; death will be afraid of you, and suffering shall depart.
    The deserted wife suffers terrible pain. How can her Husband Lord remain with her forever? ||1||
    O Siblings of Destiny, I have no other place to go.
    The Guru has given me the Treasure of the Wealth of the Naam; I am a sacrifice to Him. ||1||Pause||
    The Guru's Teachings bring honor. Blessed is He-may I meet and be with Him!
    Without Him, I cannot live, even for a moment. Without His Name, I die.
    I am blind-may I never forget the Naam! Under His Protection, I shall reach my true home. ||2||
    Those chaylaas, those devotees, whose spiritual teacher is blind, shall not find their place of rest.
    Without the True Guru, the Name is not obtained. Without the Name, what is the use of it all?
    People come and go, regretting and repenting, like crows in a deserted house. ||3||
    Without the Name, the body suffers in pain; it crumbles like a wall of sand.
    As long as Truth does not enter into the consciousness, the Mansion of the Lord's Presence is not found.
    Attuned to the Shabad, we enter our home, and obtain the Eternal State of Nirvaanaa. ||4||
    I ask my Guru for His Advice, and I follow the Guru's Advice.
    With the Shabads of Praise abiding in the mind, the pain of egotism is burnt away.
    We are intuitively united with Him, and we meet the Truest of the True. ||5||
    Those who are attuned to the Shabad are spotless and pure; they renounce sexual desire, anger, selfishness and conceit.
    They sing the Praises of the Naam, forever and ever; they keep the Lord enshrined within their hearts.
    How could we ever forget Him from our minds? He is the Support of all beings. ||6||
    One who dies in the Shabad is beyond death, and shall never die again.
    Through the Shabad, we find Him, and embrace love for the Name of the Lord.
    Without the Shabad, the world is deceived; it dies and is reborn, over and over again. ||7||
    All praise themselves, and call themselves the greatest of the great.
    Without the Guru, one's self cannot be known. By merely speaking and listening, what is accomplished?
    O Nanak, one who realizes the Shabad does not act in egotism. ||8||8||

    In the following Shabad Guru Ji tells us about the nature of the followers of a Blind(false) Guru.

    Shabad Gurbani:


    mÚ 3 ]
    gurU ijnw kw AMDulw isK BI AMDy krm kryin ]
    Eie BwxY clin AwpxY inq JUTo JUTu bolyin ]
    kUVu kusqu kmwvdy pr inMdw sdw kryin ]
    Eie Awip fuby pr inMdkw sgly kul fobyin ]
    nwnk ijqu Eie lwey iqqu lgy auie bpuVy ikAw kryin ]2]


    English Translation:

    Third Mehl:
    The disciples whose teacher is blind, act blindly as well.
    They walk according to their own wills, and continually speak falsehood and lies.
    They practice falsehood and deception, and endlessly slander others.
    Slandering others, they drown themselves, and drown all their generations as well.
    O Nanak, whatever the Lord links them to, to that they are linked; what can the poor creatures do? ||2||

    Are you asking me or Sardara123? Whoops!!! You already have the Naam. Remember that you have it, and you will know where to find it.

    Why don't we try to help someone when he/she is asking help. Instead what we tell them is similar to keep reading from here and there.

    Let's face the facts. Either you can lead someone in the right direction or you can't. Either you know or you don't.
    So, Sardara Ji and all - isn't it better to start a satsang here ? I mean a real satsang. Talking about Naam Prapti. Talking about simran, sadhana, discipline. Jinn Prem Kiyo tin hi prabh payo.

    Sorry if you are offended. Jasleen Ji is a real seeker.

    Naam Jap Ji,

    I told Jasleen Ji to read Gurbani.

    What is wrong in that?

    What kind of person you are, always against reading Gurbani?

    I dont think 'your wisdom' can be even a bit comparable to Gurbani, FYI.

    By the way what tells you I am offended, why I should be?

    You are the one offended ONE and wants to take us to other routs but Gurbani.

    Satsang is done with Sat.

    Gurbani is Sat.

    Sardara Ji,

    Did Guru Nanak do Akhand Paaths ?

    Ekmusafir rightly commented in one of his posts and I will say it in a similar fashion - we could download the whole of Guru Granth Sahib here - but what purpose will it serve ?

    Thaal Vich Tin Vastu Paiyo
    Sat Santokh Vichaaro
    Amrit Naam Thakur Ka Bhaiyo
    Jiska Sabhs Adhaaro


    All you are doing is posting translated verses and no vichaar.

    Gurbani is the main purpose.

    But there are many who can't read Gurmukhi, I have no other reason to put English translations. I do add once in while Prof Sahib Singh Ji's Vichaar on it, as I always liked them.

    IF THERE ARE ANY RULES REGARDING POSTING GURBANI/PROFESSOR SAHIB SINGH JI'S VICHAAR/ENGLISH TRANSLITERATION OF GURBANI ON SPN-

    please send me the link, I couldn't find one.


    IS GURBANI POSTING A CRIME AT SPN?

    If so let me know.


    Gurbani is the Sat. Was and Will be. If you have a Gurmat Vichaar Section on a Sikh Philosophy Network- Expect Gurbani to be posted there.

    There are many Gurbani Premi- Lovers of Gurbani.

    My pain has been dispelled, and peace and pleasure have come; my desire is quenched, and my mind and body are truly satisfied. ||1||
    He is the Master of the masterless, All-powerful to give Sanctuary. He is the Mother and Father of the whole Universe.
    He is the Lover of His devotees, the Destroyer of fear; Nanak sings and chants the Glorious Praises of his Lord and Master. ||2||20||106||

    You have problem with Gurbani- your problem

    Even with your translated versions, many will keep asking the same questions - becuase their understanding is not complete. Mine is neither.

    So what is your understanding of Naam ?

    It is the Inherent Nature of our Lord and Master to purify sinners. Those who meditate on the Lord are saved. ||1||Pause||
    The world is a swamp of wickedness and corruption. The blind sinner has fallen into the ocean of emotional attachment and pride,
    bewildered by the entanglements of Maya.
    God Himself has taken me by the hand and lifted me up and out of it; save me, O Sovereign Lord of the Universe. ||1||

    Without the Naam, the Name of the Lord, huge numbers of companions have drowned.

    The Spiritual Practice of Naam

    Truth never gets old nor rusty
    GURU AMAR DAS

    It is so natural and so easy that one can take to it as a
    matter of routine. It involves no intricacies and mysterious
    practices and one can safely go ahead on the path with
    ease and comfort. It is a Grand Trunk Road to God. One
    may with a little labor gather a rich harvest. What the
    Rishis of old achieved with much labor extending over
    centuries can now be gained easily with sincere devotion
    from day to day, without any physical penances of tortu-
    ous practices.

    To start with one has to take care to devote time regu-
    larly at fixed hours in some solitary place. But as soon as
    inner experience becomes a regular feature with the aspir-
    ant, then all restrictions as to time and place drop off and
    one can hear the Divine Symphony all day long, even in
    the midst of most strenuous work, without any effort on
    his part.

    Sleeping or awake, sitting or standing, Kabir remains
    ever at his post within.
    KABIR

    (Article by Late Sant Kirpal Singh)

    ................................................................................................................................

    Hope by Emily Dickinson

    As a literary woman of the nineteenth century, Emily Dickinson wrote, ? ?Hope? is a things with feathers- that perches in the soul- and sings a tune without the words- and never stops- at all.? Are you listening? Does your soul too sing a melody, an ongoing tune to which you delicately move, and never stop? Here Dickinson suggests an aspect of life, a struggle for spiritual freedom, that applies to many women within the nineteenth century, as well as the women of today. My consciousness speaks to me; a spark of hope rests inside my soul, hoping to emerge into the sunlight of each new day. I am a woman; I am a delicate woman who listens to Dickinson?s fine words. I listen to the tune that never ends, in a constant search for achieving my own ?space.? Everyday, I struggle to free my feathered bird from its cage. Dickinson has identified with her internal struggle as a woman, to achieve an outer space, and as the bird, she freed herself from the cage that held her spiritual soul.

    i agree... please expound upon these posts... anyone? it's beautiful to see gurbani posted over and over again, but maybe we can focus on the "discussion" part of the discussion forum and talk about what said gurbani means? anyone can read Sri Guru Granth Sahib ji... but few can truly understand it.

    some of us are new students and do not understand as much as the more learned members of the group. :)

    Siree Raag, First Mehl:
    O mind, love the Lord, as the lotus loves the water.
    Tossed about by the waves, it still blossoms with love.
    In the water, the creatures are created; outside of the water they die. ||1||
    O mind, how can you be saved without love?
    God permeates the inner beings of the Gurmukhs. They are blessed with the treasure of devotion. ||1||Pause||
    O mind, love the Lord, as the fish loves the water.
    The more the water, the more the happiness, and the greater the peace of mind and body.
    Without water, she cannot live, even for an instant. God knows the suffering of her mind. ||2||
    O mind, love the Lord, as the song-bird loves the rain.
    The pools are overflowing with water, and the land is luxuriantly green, but what are they to her, if that single drop of rain does not fall into her mouth?
    By His Grace, she receives it; otherwise, because of her past actions, she gives her head. ||3||
    O mind, love the Lord, as the water loves the milk.
    The water, added to the milk, itself bears the heat, and prevents the milk from burning.
    God unites the separated ones with Himself again, and blesses them with true greatness. ||4||
    O mind, love the Lord, as the chakvee duck loves the sun.
    She does not sleep, for an instant or a moment; the sun is so far away, but she thinks that it is near.
    Understanding does not come to the self-willed manmukh. But to the Gurmukh, the Lord is always close. ||5||
    The self-willed manmukhs make their calculations and plans, but only the actions of the Creator come to pass.
    His Value cannot be estimated, even though everyone may wish to do so.
    Through the Guru's Teachings, it is revealed. Meeting with the True One, peace is found. ||6||
    True love shall not be broken, if the True Guru is met.
    Obtaining the wealth of spiritual wisdom, the understanding of the three worlds is acquired.
    So become a customer of merit, and do not forget the Immaculate Naam, the Name of the Lord. ||7||
    Those birds which peck at the shore of the pool have played and have departed.
    In a moment, in an instant, we too must depart. Our play is only for today or tomorrow.
    But those whom You unite, Lord, are united with You; they obtain a seat in the Arena of Truth. ||8||
    Without the Guru, love does not well up, and the filth of egotism does not depart.
    One who recognizes within himself that, ""He is me"", and who is pierced through by the Shabad, is satisfied.
    When one becomes Gurmukh and realizes his own self, what more is there left to do or have done? ||9||
    Why speak of union to those who are already united with the Lord? Receiving the Shabad, they are satisfied.
    The self-willed manmukhs do not understand; separated from Him, they endure beatings.
    O Nanak, there is only the one door to His Home; there is no other place at all. ||10||11||
