Bhai Gurdas has done a sterling service by revealing the secret Guru’s word for the followers of Guru Nanak,
vwihgurU gurU mMq@ hY jp haumY KoeI ] vwr 13-2

So, "Waheguru", is the most suitable Name of God, for the purpose of Naam Simran.

Again to emphasize on "Dhyan", Gurbani says:

Further,

Guru Nanak adds:
"Ehu mann nehchal hirde basieley,
Gurmukh Mool pachhan rahe.
Nabhi Paven ghar aasan vase
Gurmukh khojat taat lahe"

Equipoise:
Inspite of the fact that Guru Nanak disarmed the Yogies in the discussion, yet he all the time maintained that the mind needs to be purified, and by the grace of Guru, made to stop its wandering. During Naam Simran, it is not only that the state of equipoise is very essential, but also a state of perpetual link with God is necessary. Because it is not that here we talk about God, but we must realize that we are talking to God. So there is no leniency to the game of the mind in Sikhism. Even if we are the householders and not the Yogis. So in our Naam Simran we do need to control the mind even better than the Yogis. Because the Yogis have no other work to do except Meditation, but a Gharasthi has to fight the Maya at every step of life. In my experience, there are certain important requisites for Naam_Simran: viz. solitude; good health and holy company.

In a similar type of verse, Bhagat Kabir ji says:
"Ehu mann shakti, ehu mann si(v)o, Ehu mann panch tatt ka jeeo,
Ehu mann le jo unn mann rahe,
Tau teen lok ki baten kahe" (SGGS: 342)
i.e. "This mind is shakti, this mind is shiva, This mind is originated from five elements, One who transcends into Higher consciousness, To him is revealed the mystery of Three Words".
Shakti resides in the lower region of the physical body and shi(v)o resides in the head region of the body. But the "Mind", which is the product of five basic elements, ranges its vibration from the shakti to the shi(v)o level, i.e. from the grosser matter of the lower nature of mind to the energy of the higher nature of mind, which is also called the transcendental region. By ascending to these heights, one becomes conscious to the "Three worlds". One can scan the physical world, the mental world, and the astral world, at ‘will’.

It is a process of constantly remembering mentally and uttering by tongue, in low tone, the name of God, which sanctifies the atmosphere around the body and soul of a person.

Holi-Company or Sat Sang:
In this important section, the Sat_Sang, I fall back on the book, "Naam Sinran and Bhakti in Sikhism" by Gurbax Singh.
