    Various stages have been given in Japuji i.e., performing dharma, service to society (dharam khand), knowing him, realsiing Him and self (gyan khand), meditating on him (saram khand), attaining His blessings (karam khand), becoming like Him, realm of truth; (sachkhand).

    Sir

    You might want to have a read of "The Five Realms" by Rajinder Singh Arshi, [on SPN] which I quite enjoyed and then perhaps proceed, as it were, with the topic to hand !

    Sachkandh are souls who practice Truth 24/7, who never have self doubt (doubt in Him for we are Him, he is Us). The ones who live on this earth have and have been souls who have detached from the face of the khel and teach others to detach.

    Detaching means detaching from the 5 thieves of lust anger greed envy and jealousy ego and attachment and selfish pride.

    They practice Truth 100%, 24/7 and teach others out of the khel aswell.

    Society has become quite primitive, focusing on false Maya image and is a competition. Bhagats who can detach from all the rubbish while still living a good life, working hard etc and teaching others to detach win this game of life.

    Good philosophy often begins by calling into question the meanings of some of the key terms we use to express a point of view on a subject. It's not always the case that fact and not argument, rules intelligent thinking, quite often, it's the other way around. The aim of academic writing is to develop a point of view on or interpretation of a material and offer evidence in support. With that in mind, I go on to say as follows:
    ..you could've said, 'souls are residents of sachkhand who practice truth 24/7' since "sachkhand" is a realm, an area, dimension, dwelling, territory, plane, etc. And, the soul in this case is the subject acting on the object [sachkhand], meaning, belonging to or living there.

    Why is it necessary to have meanings of terms ?

    Well, in a rough and ready mode, if we are to understand each other [discussion under thread], then we have to mean the same by the words we use. We can't use words to mean whatever we choose them to mean. For example, mamma in Italian means mother, Punjabi uncle and British-Punjabi police [slang]. And, hence the reason for consistency and precision. That said, quite often in philosophy, a definition is only a starting-point- something to trigger think-mode. But more importantly, if I may add, is the need to get our vocab right if we're to understand and interpret Gurbani. The writers of Gurbani uses special vocab to mean and express specific conceptual points of view, such as "sachkhand". That is to say, it being a syllable of two words [1] sach = truth and [2] khand = realm, denoting specifically a metaphysical location beyond time and space of which Baba Nanak speaks in pauri 34-37 of japjisahib. Cash-value of which can only be had if one was to both read and interpret within theoretical standpoint to make sense.

    But equally must I confess, an adept like yourself can do without such formalities and enjoy the true happiness of the soul in accord with perfect virtue being a staunch believer. So please take my comments to reflect literal sense and not corrective measures.

    Take care and thank you !

    I understand where you are coming from. Language is limited but it does help to speak in terms that others are able to understand properly.

    Sachkandh is indeed a place, a realm. But we connect with it when we practice the highest Truth 100%.

    So Sachkandh is also a state of mind. When we begin to vibrate at the frequency and practice truth to the level that is required in sachkandh, we live this state of mind. And when we leave this earth, thats where we're blessed to reside.
     
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!
