(Dassan Dass ji’s responses are inline in the email in Capital letters)
GURU PYARE OM JI:
DHAN DHAN PARA BRAHAM PARMESAR BLESS YOU WITH ALL THE ETERNAL TREASURES
Most Respected Dassan Dass Ji,
Kottan Kot dandaut bandana parvaan karna ji. First of all this sevak of yours is sincerely thankful and grateful to you for all your gur prasaadi answers and comments to my previous emails. This sevak accepts all your anmolak words as sat vachan and tries to sincerely follow and abide by them. Again this disciple of your needs some divine guidelines from you.
ANYTIME – GOD BLESS YOU WITH ALL THE ETERNAL TREASURES, GOD BLESS YOU WITH THE GUR PAQRSAAD OF GIVING AND GIVING AND GIVING AND GIVING. GIVING IS BANDGI ASKING IS MAYA.
Dassan Dass Ji, now this sevak have started to realize why you always address yourself as "We" and not "I". These days this sevaks feels as if he is committing a big lie/sin when he refers himself as "I" and takes the credit of something for which his contribution was almost negligible or nothing. Dass has started to realize that whatever he has gained till now in the spiritual path is due to the grace of GUR, GURU, SATGUR (Inner Guru), GUR-PRASADI SATNAAM and all these divine entities are always present within him and are the main contributors for the spiritual success. It is like GOD in us praying himself. Every days simran session is unique in itself and cannot be predicted in anyway as somebody else in you is in control of it.
YOU ARE JUST NONEXISTANT – NOT EVEN NEGLIGEBLE – NOT CAPABLE OF DOING ANYTHING – COMPLETE SURRENDER – INNOCENT HIRDA IS THE WINNER – THE GUR PARSAAD IS THE ONLY CONTRIBUTOR – AKAL PURAKH KARTA PURAKH IS THE ONLY DOER – ONLY CONTRIBUTOR – UTMOST HUMBLENESS – BECOMING SAGAL KI REENA – CHARAN DHOOL OF ENTIRE CREATION IS THE KEY TO SUCCESS – THE SPIRITUAL SUCCESS – OBEYING THE HUKAM IS THE KEY – THERE IS NO ME, MY OR MINE – IT IS ALL GUR KIRPA AND GUR PARSAAD – THAT MAKES THINGS HAPPEN.
These day this dass of yours is trying his best with GUR and GURU kirpa to try and win over maya completely. Dass to a very great extent has won over it while in awake condition and while in simran (samadhi). This sevak of your’s is having a great difficulty in controlling and realizing the attacks of maya in dreams while he is asleep. Last few days (even weeks) before sleeping dass always does ardaas and prays GUR-GURU-SATGUR to keep him awake while in dreams and help in realizing and overcoming MAYA in dreams while sleeping. But, somehow MAYA always wins and this sevak of your is not able to realize it till he gets up in the amrit vella. Although dass does perform ardaas when he wakes up and asks for the forgiveness from GUR-GURU-SATGUR. This dass of yours have never ever in the past experienced these kind of wired dreams and he is pretty sure that the dream were all setup just for attacking dass and making him realize that he is still not done. While awake or while in simran (samadhi) the attacks of maya have almost reduced to zero
(although at the beginning the number was very high).This sevak of yours recites SATNAAM….. and Man to jyot saroop hi apana mool pachaan, man har ji tere naal hain sada sada rang maan. This always works while awake or while in simran. But in dreams while sleeping this dass of yours is not even able to realize (forget about reciting SATNAAM… or Man to….). Please guide and help this sevak of yours to win this battle against maya.
SAYING THAT YOU HAVE A CONTROL OVER MAYA IN AWAKE CONDITION IS HAUMAI – AHANKAAR AND THAT IS MAYA ITSELF, DON’T FORGET IT IS GUR PARSAAD, YOU CAN WIN OVER THE MAYA WITH THE GUR PARSAAD ONLY, AGAIN COMPLETE SURRENDER IS THE KEY TO THE DARGAH. FULL AWAKNESS OF MIND ON A CONTINUES BASIS – GURMUKH JAAG RAHEY DIN RAATEE – IS THE KEY WHICH IS GUR PARSAAD SO PLEASE NEITHER THINK NOR SAY THAT YOU HAVE ACHIEVED ANYTHING, JUST STAY CONTAINED WITH IN YOURSELF. YOU SHOULD BE RECITING SAT NAAM IN YOUR DREAMS AS WELL, WHENEVER MAYA STRIKES IN THE DREAMS YOU SHOULD BE RECITING SAT NAAM SAT NAAM SAT NAAM SAT NAAM SAT NAAM SAT NAAM SAT NAAM SAT NAAM SAT NAAM – YOU SHOULD BE RECITING SAT NAAM AT ALL TIMES INSIDE YOU. JUST LEAVE EVERYTHING TO THE ALMIGHTY – HE WILL TAKE CARE OF EVERYTHING – AGAIN COMPLETE SURRENEDER WITH TUNN MUNN AND DHAN.
This sevaks wife (S Kaur) has also started walking the first steps into this spiritual path. She sits for satnaam simran in the amrit vella for 45 minutes or so but she always complains that her mind always keep wandering and she has very difficul time concentrating during the simran. She has also started regularly visiting and reading your gurprasadi writings on the satnaam.info site. Please bless her with your blessings and advise few anmolak words.
GOD BLESS HER WITH THE GUR PARSAAD OF NAAM, NAAM SIMRAN, NAAM KI KAMAI, PURAN BANDGI AND SEVA. SHE SHOULD SIT BY YOUR SIDE WHEN YOU DO YOUR NAAM SIMRAN AND THEN DO THE SAT NAAM SIMRAN. SHE IS VERY FORTUNATE TO BE WITH YOU IN THIS HUMAN LIFE, SHE SHOULD STAY FOCUSED ON SAT NAAM – ALL HER DIFFICULTIES WILL DISAPPEAR AFTER SOME TIME.
At the end please accept this sevaks kottan kot dandaut bandana and sukhrana ji.
Yours humble sevak.
ANYTHING WHICH IS DONE WITH DEVOTION AND LOVE, TRUST AND FAITH IS ALWAYS ACCEPTED AND ITS REWARDS ARE UNMEASURABLE.
