    Gauree, Fifth Mehla:
    Meet me, O my Lord of the Universe. Please bless me with Your Name.
    Without the Naam, the Name of the Lord, cursed, cursed is love and intimacy. ||1||Pause||
    Without the Naam, one who dresses and eats well
    is like a dog, who falls in and eats impure foods. ||1||
    Without the Naam, all occupations are useless, like decorations on a dead body. ||2||
    One who forgets the Naam and indulges in pleasures,
    shall find no peace, even in dreams; his body shall become diseased. ||3||
    One who renounces the Naam and engages in other occupations,
    shall see all of his false pretenses fall away. ||4||
    One whose mind does not embrace love for the Naam
    shall go to hell, even though he may perform millions of ceremonial rituals. ||5||
    One whose mind does not contemplate the Name of the Lord
    is bound like a thief, in the City of Death. ||6||
    Hundreds of thousands of ostentatious shows and great expanses
    - without the Naam, all these displays are false. ||7||
    That humble being repeats the Name of the Lord,
    O Nanak, whom the Lord blesses with His Mercy. ||8||10||

    What types of ceremonial rituals do Sikhs perform today ?

    How does one embrace love for the Naam ?

    I cannot get out of ignorance if I don't know that I am ignorant. Please enlighten me.

    Naam

    Now what is the definition of Naam? Naam for me is truth or embracing truthful living. It is acknowledging the divine will and moving towards being a Gurmukh rather than a Manmukh or self willed.

    People today go to these Sant's and a like and think because they have had something whispered in their ear they have Naam.......what a crock!!!

    The Gurmukh is one who listens to the divine will and uses the divine will to guide his/her actions. He she is in control of the 5 thieves and does not let them guide his her actions.

    The Munmukh is one who is guided by the 5 thieves. It is self will or basic animal instincts run riot.

    Give me one practical way of acknowledging the divine will ?

    My friend died a few months ago at the age of 36, although the 5 thieves (particularly Krodh) were clouding my judgement I accepted it as part of the divine will.

    It did not mean we sat there idoly and thoughts thats it he is dead, but we continued work for a charity which he had set up to help the rural poor in India.
