    In Sikhism and the Gurbani, Shri Guru Arjan says that we should pray to God that we have the darkness of separation because of our actions, and seek His Grace that He blesses us with His presence and thus causes our wandering to come to an end. As the cow without milk and farm without water are of no use, so is our outer makeup unless His presence is felt in our hearts.

    We should always pray for His blessings of His Abode, wherever the Word of Gurbani is read, said, sung and heard. It is to be in His refuge and oneness with Him in His Abode of the Truth (Sachkhand).

    Our selves are dwelling in the five spheres of creativity, defense and continuity; these are the spheres of Food (solid), Breath (air), Feelings (water), Knowledge (fire), and Bliss (space). The highest truth is at bliss level and at this level, the truth behind idealism is known and felt. The creativity in us is His Divine Touch. We seek this Touch of His Grace.


    SPECIAL ABOUT THE MONTH: This is the first native or Desi month in the Indian Mysticism and Astrology when the Sun transits through the 12th sign of the zodiac, Pisces, in the western system; it transits through the 1st Sun sign of the zodiac, Aries. It is also the month when the new Indian Native Year starts according to the Bikarmi Samat, named after Raja (King) Vikrmaditya. In the Punjabi and many other Indian systems, it is the 12th or the last month of the native year.

    Accordingly, the running native year is 2066 according to native year of Indian Calendar that is always 56 years ahead to our English Calender with AD as now is 2009 AD always starting from the 1st of January each year. From the ancient times (about 2066 years ago), the Indian New Year starts in the third week of March every year. The next Native Year in the third week of March of 2010 AD will be 2067.

    The month of Chet gives us the message that by reciting God’s name in the presence of congregation is the divine way for bliss and self-realization. The self-realization is the highest success of our human life. Without remembering Him, life is vain. The sorrow of forgetting the Omnipresent cannot be described. It is one of the greatest assets to enjoy this oneness. We all have this spiritual thirst, and we surrender our ego and serve all those great ones, who unite us with Him.


    In the month of Chet, we, as the devotees, seek God as a wife seeks her husband. Their union is not just to know but also to enjoy the human qualities and virtues that are the radiance of our soul. As the soul seeks the supreme Spirit, so are the bonds of divine love. Even at the intellectual level, the creative and analytical faculties of the brain seek exchange of thought, idea and action. In the ordinary sense the harmony among thought of creativity, ideas of analytical faculties and action by other faculties give the mind a pause to feel that stillness, the peace.

    You see that relaxation of the mind is not peace; it is just rest. When we, as the seekers, desire to unite with the origin or the original self–leaving the negative energy of possessiveness, says Shri Guru Nanak, this leads to the highest of blissfulness of joy that comes just by the good desire to know and ascend towards Him to have the original and thus the self-felt thoughts, feelings and experiences.

    Thus is the Divine Message for the Month of Aries.

    Thanks for your reading it!

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!
