luv4u said:The Naam (SHABD), the Name of God is the only medium available to us for approaching Him. The Naam actually is a combination of five words (which are the names of five supernatural heavenly places which fall on the way when the soul is starting towards the SACHKHAND) which only a true Guru can give to his disciples. All who get Naam from the Guru have to concentrate at one point in their mind and recite the Naam in their mind without actually uttering it.
Dear Gurupyaare jeo,
The above exposition has been taken from a source stated above. You may also look into it. I am no one to explain any new concept to anyone. Your question to 'elaborate ' was put only in a round about manner and hence I had given the above answer related to Khands that I thought would be helpful.
I have no answer to answer you about the 'five words in relation to khands' as my knowledge is fairly limited.
It would not, however, to mean that I discard the above as well, as my knowledge is limited. You may like to enlighten further if you are sure Of some thing that the above can be disacrded as it is wrong or incorrect.
I also agree that SGGS ji is our Guru and that also living Guru and you are a participant of SPN. I am not sure if 'sangat' is an appropriate term.
How to interpret these five words in relation to the khands is something that one shall have to explore after analysing 'Panch Shabads' and it may take some time.
If you happen to know some thing you may kindly share with us as well. Even if you discard it as well kindly say it, if you do not, kindly say it again so that we can know that you are genuinely interested in learning and teaching that is mutual understanding. I am sharing that I am learning .The fact that I am not able to answer does not entitle me to discard it as well. It all depends upon one's search and research and ability to interpret only.
I also note that you will not like to participate in the active manner as you have declined the offer to do some work on' Ik Onkar' that seems to seriously puzzle me. Anyway It is your prerogative.
Daas is not to look in for 'wah ..'wah'' from any body. If He has something for us and blesses us with it shall be our destiny.
During my search and reasearch If I come across any answer it shall be known to you.
Best Of Luck
Hukumnama for today 6th June 2007
SHALOK:One’s destiny is activated, when one chants the Lord’s Name, through perfect good fortune. Fruitful is that moment, O Nanak, when one obtains the Blessed Vision of the Darshan of the Lord of the Universe. || 1 || Its value cannot be estimated; it brings peace beyond measure. O Nanak, that time alone is approved, when my Beloved meets with me. || 2 || PAUREE: Tell me, what is that time, when I shall find God? Blessed and auspicious is that moment, and that destiny, when I shall find the Lord of the Universe. Meditating on the Lord, twenty-four hours a day, my mind’s desires are fulfilled. By great good fortune, I have found the Society of the Saints; I bow and touch their feet. My mind thirsts for the Blessed Vision of the Lord’s Darshan; Nanak is a sacrifice to Him. || 15 ||

ਹੇ ਨਾਨਕ! ਉਹ ਘੜੀ ਬਰਕਤਿ ਵਾਲੀ ਹੁੰਦੀ ਹੈਜਦੋਂ ਪੂਰਨ ਸੰਜੋਗਾਂ ਨਾਲ ਮੱਥੇ ਦੇ ਲਿਖੇ ਲੇਖ ਉੱਘੜਦੇ ਹਨ, ਪ੍ਰਭੂ ਦਾ ਸਿਮਰਨ ਕਰੀਦਾ ਹੈ ਤੇ ਗੋਪਾਲ ਹਰੀ ਦਾ ਦੀਦਾਰ ਹੁੰਦਾ ਹੈ।੧।
ਇਤਨੇ ਅਮਿਣਵੇਂ ਸੁਖ ਪ੍ਰਭੂ ਦੇਂਦਾ ਹੈ ਕਿ ਮੈਂ ਉਹਨਾਂ ਦਾ ਮੁੱਲ ਨਹੀਂ ਪਾ ਸਕਦਾ
(ਰੱਬ ਕਰਕੇ) ਉਹ ਵੇਲਾ ਛੇਤੀ ਆਵੇ ਜਦੋਂ ਮੈਂ ਪ੍ਰਭੂ ਨੂੰ ਮਿਲਾਂ। ਉਹ ਮੁਹੂਰਤ, ਉਹ ਮਿਲਣ ਦਾ ਸਮਾਂ ਭਾਗਾਂ ਵਾਲਾ ਹੁੰਦਾ ਹੈ, ਜਦੋਂ ਧਰਤੀ ਦਾ ਸਾਂਈ ਮਿਲਦਾ ਹੈ। (ਮੇਹਰ ਕਰ) ਅੱਠੇ ਪਹਿਰ ਪ੍ਰਭੂ ਨੂੰ ਸਿਮਰ ਕੇ ਮੈਂ ਆਪਣੇ ਮਨ ਦੀ ਚਾਹ ਪੂਰੀ ਕਰਾਂ। ਚੰਗੀ ਕਿਸਮਤਿ ਨਾਲ ਸਤਸੰਗ ਮਿਲ ਜਾਏ ਤੇ ਮੈਂ ਨਿਊਂ ਨਿਊਂ ਕੇ (ਸਤ ਸੰਗੀਆਂ ਦੇ) ਪੈਰੀਂ ਲੱਗਾਂ। ਮੇਰੇ ਮਨ ਵਿਚ (ਪ੍ਰਭੂ ਦੇ) ਦਰਸਨ ਦੀ ਤ੍ਰੇਹ ਹੈ। ਹੇ ਨਾਨਕ! (ਆਖ) ਮੈਂ (ਸਤਸੰਗੀਆਂ ਤੋਂ) ਸਦਕੇ ਜਾਂਦਾ ਹਾਂ।੧੫।
