" Na Oh Marey Na Thagey Jaye Jinke Ram Vase Man Mayee"

Life is much stress free and tension free and at peace without attachment to people,you tend to realize you just play your part everywhere and to the best keeping GOD at center and there is nothing more bliss than this,the tension of people saying things at your back ,you being fooled and lied then automatically vanishes as Guru Nanak Mahraj Ji Says

line in context here

ਗੁਰ ਕੈ ਗ੍ਰਿਹਿ ਸੇਵਕੁ ਜੋ ਰਹੈ ॥ ਗੁਰ ਕੀ ਆਗਿਆ ਮਨ ਮਹਿ ਸਹੈ ॥ ਆਪਸ ਕਉ ਕਰਿ ਕਛੁ ਨ ਜਨਾਵੈ ॥ ਹਰਿ ਹਰਿ ਨਾਮੁ ਰਿਦੈ ਸਦ ਧਿਆਵੈ ॥ ਮਨੁ ਬੇਚੈ ਸਤਿਗੁਰ ਕੈ ਪਾਸਿ ॥ ਤਿਸੁ ਸੇਵਕ ਕੇ ਕਾਰਜ ਰਾਸਿ ॥ ਸੇਵਾ ਕਰਤ ਹੋਇ ਨਿਹਕਾਮੀ ॥ ਤਿਸ ਕਉ ਹੋਤ ਪਰਾਪਤਿ ਸੁਆਮੀ ॥ ਅਪਨੀ ਕ੍ਰਿਪਾ ਜਿਸੁ ਆਪਿ ਕਰੇਇ ॥ ਨਾਨਕ ਸੋ ਸੇਵਕੁ ਗੁਰ ਕੀ ਮਤਿ ਲੇਇ ॥੨॥ {ਪੰਨਾ 286-287}


That selfless servant, who lives in the Guru's household, is to obey the Guru's Commands with all his mind. He is not to call attention to himself in any way. He is to meditate constantly within his heart on the Name of the Lord. One who sells his mind to the True Guru - that humble servant's affairs are resolved. One who performs selfless service, without thought of reward, shall attain his Lord and Master. He Himself grants His Grace; O Nanak, that selfless servant lives the Guru's Teachings. || 2 || ( Guru Granth Sahib Ji - Panna 286-287 )

ਕਿਵ ਸਚਿਆਰਾ ਹੋਈਐ ਕਿਵ ਕੂੜੈ ਤੁਟੈ ਪਾਲਿ


किव सचिआरा होईऐ किव कूड़ै तुटै पालि ॥
kiv sachi-aaraa ho-ee-ai kiv koorhai tutai paal.
So how can you become truthful? And how can the veil of illusion be torn away?

ਹੁਕਮਿ ਰਜਾਈ ਚਲਣਾ ਨਾਨਕ ਲਿਖਿਆ ਨਾਲਿ ॥੧॥
हुकमि रजाई चलणा नानक लिखिआ नालि ॥१॥
hukam rajaa-ee chalnaa naanak likhi-aa naal. ||1||
O Nanak, it is written that you shall obey the Hukam of His Command, and walk in the Way of His Will. ||1||

How it affects my mind? hmmm, I guess, it hammers me, keeps on reminding me to stay in His Will

Great thread Arshdeep ji...

Regards, Arvind.

kaliaan mehalaa 5 ||
Kalyaan, Fifth Mehla:

gun naadh dhhun ana(n)dh baedh ||
The Glory of God is the Sound-current of the Naad, the Celestial Music of Bliss, and the Wisdom of the Vedas.

kathhath sunath mun janaa mil sa(n)th ma(n)ddalee ||1|| rehaao ||
Speaking and listening, the silent sages and humble beings join together, in the Realm of the Saints. ||1||Pause||

giaan dhhiaan maan dhaan man rasik rasan naam japath theh paap kha(n)ddalee ||1||
Spiritual wisdom, meditation, faith and charity are there; their minds savor the Taste of the Naam, the Name of the Lord. Chanting it, sins are destroyed. ||1||

jog jugath giaan bhugath surath sabadh thath baethae jap thap akha(n)ddalee ||
This is the technology of Yoga, spiritual wisdom, devotion, intuitive knowledge of the Shabad, certain knowledge of the Essence of Reality, chanting and unbroken intensive meditation.

outh poth mil joth naanak kashhoo dhukh n dda(n)ddalee ||2||2||5||
Through and through, O Nanak, merging into the Light, you shall never again suffer pain and punishment. ||2||2||5||

For me the above gurbani is so powerful....for years we look to the outside, searching for god, how to find god, seeking on the outside to understand who we are...yet the realisation comes that all that we seek lies within us...and then god blessing we witness the light and sound or the 'word' that jesus christ also describes within us.

God bless

Sabh Kich Ghar Mai Bahr Nahi
Bahr Tolai So Bharam Bhulai
Gur Prasad Jinni Antar Payaa
So Antar Bahr Suhela Jio

ਸਭ ਕਿਛੁ ਘਰ ਮਹਿ ਬਾਹਰਿ ਨਾਹੀ ॥
ਬਾਹਰਿ ਟੋਲੈ ਸੋ ਭਰਮਿ ਭੁਲਾਹੀ ॥
ਗੁਰ ਪਰਸਾਦੀ ਜਿਨੀ ਅੰਤਰਿ ਪਾਇਆ ਸੋ ਅੰਤਰਿ ਬਾਹਰਿ ਸੁਹੇਲਾ ਜੀਉ ॥੧॥

Everything is within the home of the self; there is nothing beyond.
One who searches outside is deluded by doubt.
By Guru's Grace, one who has found the Lord within is happy, inwardly and outwardly. ||1||

This Shabad is by Guru Arjan Dev Ji in Raag Saarang on Pannaa 1218 :
ਸਾਰਗ ਮਹਲਾ ੫

॥ ਸਿਮਰਤ ਨਾਮੁ ਪ੍ਰਾਨ ਗਤਿ ਪਾਵੈ ॥ ਮਿਟਹਿ ਕਲੇਸ ਤ੍ਰਾਸ ਸਭ ਨਾਸੈ ਸਾਧਸੰਗਿ ਹਿਤੁ ਲਾਵੈ ॥੧॥ ਰਹਾਉ ॥ ਹਰਿ ਹਰਿ ਹਰਿ ਹਰਿ ਮਨਿ ਆਰਾਧੇ ਰਸਨਾ ਹਰਿ ਜਸੁ ਗਾਵੈ ॥ ਤਜਿ ਅਭਿਮਾਨੁ ਕਾਮ ਕ੍ਰੋਧੁ ਨਿੰਦਾ ਬਾਸੁਦੇਵ ਰੰਗੁ ਲਾਵੈ ॥੧॥ ਦਾਮੋਦਰ ਦਇਆਲ ਆਰਾਧਹੁ ਗੋਬਿੰਦ ਕਰਤ ਸਹਾਵੈ ॥ ਕਹੁ ਨਾਨਕ ਸਭ ਕੀ ਹੋਇ ਰੇਨਾ ਹਰਿ ਹਰਿ ਦਰਸਿ ਸਮਾਵੈ ॥੨॥੪੮॥੭੧॥ {ਪੰਨਾ 1218}


Saarang, Fifth Mehla:

Meditating in remembrance on the Naam, the Name of the Lord, the mortal attains salvation.
His sorrows are dispelled, and his fears are all erased; he is in love with the Saadh Sangat, the Company of the Holy. ||1||Pause||
His mind worships and adores the Lord, Har, Har, Har, Har; his tongue sings the Praises of the Lord.
Abandoning egotistical pride, sexual desire, anger and slander, he embraces love for the Lord. ||1||
Worship and adore the Merciful Lord God; chanting the Name of the Lord of the Universe, you shall be embellished and exalted.
Says Nanak, whoever becomes the dust of all, merges in the Blesed Vision of the Lord, Har, Har. ||2||48||71||

Beautiful Shabad,

Says Nanak, whoever becomes the dust of all, merges in the Blesed Vision of the Lord, Har, Har.

so much humilty...to see oneself as the dust of all...lowest of everyone..

yet we fail to take in these jewels of guidance and are soon wrapped in egotistical pride of religion, status and so on and still deem ourselves as 'religious' people....and the great souls to whom we look to for guidance tells us to become the dust of all :)

FROM PERSONAL PROSPECTIVE:

The issue these days is that that there is too much FOCUS on the academics ( dissection ) of Gurbani instead of action on Gurbani teachings i.e. kamai. It is like obtaining a medical presecption, and instead of taking the medicine, we keep reading the prescription ( composition & effects of the medicine ).

We often also get involved in negative aspect of religious / spiritual life: things we should not do or avoid, rather than POSITIVE ENFORCEMENTS: things we should do with total faith, will power, determination & limitless patience!

If we matched our words with action ( kahne te karni ek ), then gradually we begin to control the FIVE evils , and adopt the 8 VIRTUES ( moral values ) : http://www.sikhphilosophy.net/spiritual-articles/5325-the-five-evils-and-moral-values.html

Thus with Waheguru JI's blessings, this will gradually move us personally from religious plane to spiritual plane of the ATMA ( SOUL ) and eventually endeavour to merge with our source - Waheguru / Nirankar !

Remember that this is the maya world ocean that we must cross as Guru Nanak Ji states.
To get across, we must swim in it but be in complete control whilst submerged.
Some say the secret is to get across by rising above it like a bubble on the surface.
However, this bubble on the surface is usually more larger and inflated with an independence or EGO.
The EGO inflation makes the bubble think that it is somewhat independant of the rest of the ocean.

How should we behave then whilst trying to get across this world ocean ?
Well, I think the only way one can know of it's depth is to go down right to the bottom of the sea-bed and see yourself as the humble and lowly.

To stay down and walk across the sea bed is much more difficult than floating like the ego bubble on the top surface.
The immense pressure tries to physically force one up towards the surface, and one would find it an extreme effort to literally walk, one stride after another !!

Therefore, we must try and walk on the lowest part of this ocean and we know it requires a lot of effort and perseverance.
Does the ego bubble on the top see the bottom of the sea-bed with ease ?
Or is the one at the bottom able to see how far up it is and the range and expanse of the difference ?

Bande Khoj Dil Har Roj Na Phir Pareshani Mahi
Ih Jo Duniya Sihar Mela Dastgiri Nahi
Darog Paṛ Paṛ Khusi Hoe Bekhabar Bad Bakahi.
Hak Sach Kjalak khalak Miane Siam Murat Nahi

O human being, search your own heart every day, and do not wander around in confusion.
This world is just a magic-show; no one will be holding your hand.
Reading and studying falsehood, people are happy; in their ignorance, they speak nonsense.
The True Creator Lord is diffused into His creation; He is not just the dark-skinned Krishna of legends.

ਨਿਵਣੁ ਸੁ ਅਖਰੁ ਖਵਣੁ ਗੁਣੁ ਜਿਹਬਾ ਮਣੀਆ ਮੰਤੁ ॥
निवणु सु अखरु खवणु गुणु जिहबा मणीआ मंतु ॥
Nivaṇ so akẖar kẖavaṇ guṇ jihbā maṇī▫ā manṯ.
Humility is the word, forgiveness is the virtue, and sweet speech is the magic mantra.

ਏ ਤ੍ਰੈ ਭੈਣੇ ਵੇਸ ਕਰਿ ਤਾਂ ਵਸਿ ਆਵੀ ਕੰਤੁ ॥੧੨੭॥
ए त्रै भैणे वेस करि तां वसि आवी कंतु ॥१२७॥
Ė ṯarai bẖaiṇe ves kar ṯāʼn vas āvī kanṯ. ||127||
Wear these three robes, O sister, and you will captivate your Husband Lord. ||127|

Ang 1384

My understanding
practice Humbleness everywhere ,don't let mind speak out of the EGO ,
dont feed your ego to make you blind
practice forgiveness ,let go of the things in your heart ,don't keep holding them
and speak which is only Kind making sure the words don't disturb the peace of others or hurt anyone ,avoid using bitter words
practice and imply such things in your life and it will make you closer to seek the TRUTH

Bhul Chuk Khima G
Pardon my unintentional mistakes in the understanding
