PRABH KA SIMRAN SABH TE UNCHA
Remembrance of The Lord is the Highest of all.
JAP SAT NAAM SAT NAAM SAT NAAM SAT NAAM SAT NAAM SADA SADA SAT NAAM
O my mind repeat SATNAAM always SATNAAM
With the Agami Anant Apaar and Beant Kirpa of Satgur Sache Patshah Ji this chakkar of yours is trying to serve the Sangat through this article. Please forgive this kooker of the Guru and Sangat for his mis deeds or any mis representations that are not according to the Braham Gyan given in Shri Guru Granth Sahib Ji.
pothhee paramaesar kaa thhaan ||
This Holy Book is the home of the Transcendent Lord God.
saadhhasa(n)g gaavehi gun gobi(n)dh pooran breham giaan ||1|| rehaao ||
Whoever sings the Glorious Praises of the Lord of the Universe in the Saadh Sangat,
the Company of the Holy, has the perfect knowledge of God. ||1||Pause||
One of another common problem that the Sangat faces is the method of doing Simran – how should it be attempted. Before even we talk about this issue it is utmost important to understand why we need to do Simran:
The highest AMRIT is NAAM, the highest level of comfort and enjoyment is NAAM, other AMRITS ARE BELOW NAAM AMRIT, the sequence is as follows:
1. HIGHEST AMRIT IS NAAM.
1. SECOND HIGHEST AMRIT IS "EK BOOND AMRIT" – that resides in side you and gets activated when you reach a high ATMIK AWASTHA OF KARAM KHAND OR SACH KHAND.
2. THIRD HIGHEST IS "KHANDE BATE KA AMRIT" (Served by today’s Panj Pyare)
SUKHMANI SUKH AMRIT PRABH NAAM
BHAGAT JANA KE MAN VISHRAAM
NANAK KE GHAR KEVAL NAAM "- Guru Nanak Dev Ji was given the MOOL MANTER by AKAL PURAKH when he went under water for three days in Sultan Pur Lodhi.
ABH KALOO AYEO RE EK NAAM BOWOH BOWOH – Guru Nanak Dev Ji
There is nothing above NAAM:
PRABH KA SIMRAN SABH TE UNCHA (Sukhmani)
HAR SIMRAN MEH AAP NIRANKAARA
HAR KE NAAM SAMSAR KICHU NAAHIN (Sukhmani)
EH DHAN SANCHO HOWO BHAGWANT
JEY WAD AAP TE WAD TER I DAAT (Rehraas): the ultimate and highest NAAM is his biggest gift
NANAK VAKHANE BENTI TUDH BAAJ KUDO KOOD (Asa Di War)
– everything else is just perishable only NAAM will survive.
Please take some time to understand the First Ashtpadi of Sukhmani Sahib Ji, you will completely understand the importance and benefits of SIMRAN. This is utmost important to do so if you want to learn why GURUS, SANTS, AND BRAHAM GYANIS have concentrated on SIMRAN.
This is the only one way to JEEVAN MUKTI, PARAM PADVI and BRAHAM GYAN. All other ways will take you to midway somewhere and leave you there, and from that on wards you will have to pick up NAAM for further spiritual achievements.
This PROVES that the highest level of worshipping or Bhagti is SIMRAN. Only SIMRAN can help you conquer over your PANJ DOOT AND YOUR MIND. All the other acts of worshipping such as reading and listening Gurbani, listening and singing kirtan are a lower levels of Bhagti.
The next step is to learn how to do SIMRAN:
The best time to do Simran is amritvela (between midnight and 06:00). Start as early as 1:00 am, this is the premium time to start SIMRAN, your rewards will be just incredible, your concentration will be super, your rewards will equal to donating 40 kg of diamonds if you meditate from 1:00 am to 2:00 am, 40 kg of gold for the next hour then silver and copper and so on.
So get up around 12:30 am (this is what this sevak of yours have done) or as early as you can, take a shower, preferably wash your hair as well, keep them wet – this will help you to keep you awake – however they will dry out anyway, cover your head, and sit down in a quite corner of your house, your bed room is fine, try to use the same spot for meditation every day.
Now you don’t have to sit on floor if your can’t for a longer time, it can be just a SUKH ASSAN, comfortable for your body, no feeling of any pains or aches. You can sit on a comfortable, chair or sofa, if you can’t sit for a long time like in case of some old people they can do it laying on the bed too, there is no hard and fast rule as to how you should sit. You should have a comfortable posture so that you can concentrate on SIMRAN.
Keep the lights turned off. After you sit down, with folded hands do the following ARDAAS:
Tere dar da eh kookar done hath jod ke ardaas jodhri benti karda hai.
THIS DOG OF YOUR COURT IS DOING ARDAS WITH PRESSED HANDS LORD.
Aasi beant paapi haan pakhandi haan kaami krodhi lobhi mohi te ahankari haan.
I AM AN ENDLESS SINNER, A HYPOCRITE, LUSTFUL, ANGRY, GREEDY, ATTACHED AND FULL OF SELFISH PRIDE
Aasi guneh gaar loon harami haan.
I AM A GREAT OFFENDER AND BETRAYER
Kirpa kar ke sadhe gunah baksh de.
BE KIND AND FORGIVE ALL OF MY MISTAKES
Sadhe herdey which aa.
COME AND RESIDE IN MY HEART
Tan man seetal kar de.
COOL MY MIND AND BODY.
Chit ekager kar deh.
FOCUS MY MIND ON YOU.
Tan man dhan sabh tera hai teri upma tujhi ko arpan.
MIND BODY AND WEALTH ARE ALL YOURS AND I SACRIFICE THEM FOR YOUR GLORY
ek man ek chit kar de.
FOCUS MY MIND AND ATTENTION ON ONE
Apni seva aap lawo ji.
YOU YOURSELF COME AND TAKE THIS SERVICE
Sabh kuch tera kuch nahin mera,
EVERYTHING IS YOURS, NOTHING IS MINE
Hamre kite kichu naa howe ji kare karawe ape aap ji.
NOTHING I DO HAPPENS, WHATEVER YOU DO COMES TO PASS
Jo tudh bhawe sohi bhali kaar,
WHATEVER PLEASES YOU IS A WONDERFUL THING
Jive jiv hukum teve tiv kaar
ONLY YOUR HUKAM HAPPENS
(ACCEPTING ALL YOUR MISDEEDS IS VERY IMPORTANT)
And then start your SIMRAN:
SAT NAAM SHREE WAHEGURU JI,
SAT NAAM SHREE WAHEGURU JI
. . . . .and continue.
We hope you understand the difference between JAAP and SIMRAN – Please this sevak’s article on GURMANTER AND NAAM JAAP AND SIMRAN to understand these divine words – SHABAD GURU.
So you should be doing SIMRAN in your mind at the least. The way it works is as follows:
1. Jaap with your tounge-RASNA will make your RASNA pious – PAVITTER.
2. Jaap along the breath will make your breath and breathing track pious.
3. SIMRAN in your MIND will make your MIND pious.
4. SIMRAN in HIRDEY will make your HIRDEY pious.
You would like to make your MIND pious, at the least, to have a control over the mind, and if your SIMRAN STARTS IN YOUR MIND then you are very lucky. We have already talked about controlling of the mind in one of the previous messages.
We sincerely hope that all the members are doing SIMRAN for 2.5 hrs every morning, if not, then they should do it. Infact longer time is very beneficial, if you do SIMRAN continuously for two hrs you will be counted doing it on the earth, once you go into deep meditation – SMADHI IN KARAM KHAND, the third hour onward will be counted in DARGAH, and you will have a lot of unbelievable experiences. You will see a lot of ALOKIK NAZARE. The GURUS will come to bless you and so on.
Please accept these words as seva from this humble servant of yours. Please forgive this chakkar of yours for any mis representations. Thanks to every one for taking time to read these messages.
