SatGuru Arjun Dev Ji has established in the first Ashtpadi of Sukhmani that Naam Simran is the highest level of service to Akal Purakh.
Through the divine piece of knowledge called Sukhmani, Akal Purakh has very kindly blessed us. We are told in plain and simple words that Naam Simran is the only way to :-
- achieve the Eternity,
- experience the Almighty,
- come out of the cycle of life and death,
- achieve eternal silence and happiness,
- achieve salvation,
- become a Sant Hirda.
The purpose of these articles is to reinforce the divine knowledge (Brahm Gian) that if we do Naam Simran with complete belief and commitment we will realize our spiritual dreams.
Only Naam Simran will bring us the highest level of spirituality. That is called Jivan Mukti (Salvation while alive). A person who has achieved this is called a Jivan Mukt. They live in a state of complete eternal bliss – Chad Di Kala. This is the highest level of comfort. It takes us out of the cycle of life of death which is the highest level of sorrow.
“Janam Maran Ka Bandhan” the bondage of birth and death, is the worst sorrow. Only Naam Simran can take us out of it and bring us up to the highest level of Supreme Bliss in Truth – Param Anand / Sat Chit Anand.
Today we see the Sikh Sangat all over the world engaged in various kinds of religious acts (Dharam Karams) such as :-
- reading Gurbani,
- listening to Kirtan,
- going to the Gurdwara,
- performing pilgrimages,
- making donations to religious places
- helping the poor and so on.
There is nothing wrong in doing these acts of religous nature. But only if these acts are combined with Naam Simran will the spiritual results be phenomenal, because:
prabh kaa simaran sabh thae oochaa ||
The remembrance of God is the highest and most exalted of all.
Siri Guru Granth Sahib (SGGS) 263
Doing Naam Simran is the highest service to Akal Purakh Paar Braham Parmeshwar.
Naam Simran brings :-
- the highest level of comfort and happiness right now and for all ages to come,
- a complete peace of mind, a complete silence,
- victory over the mind forever,
- control over desires, hopes, wishes and the five thieves : anger, greed, lust, family attachment and pride.
- enlightenment of the soul with Param Jyot (Supreme Light Of God) and transforms it into a Pargateyo Jyot (fully blown Light Of God shining bright),
- salvation – Jivan Mukti.
If we are reading Sukhmani everyday but don’t follow it in our daily life then we will not be able to achieve our spiritual goals as fast as they could be. The key is to believe in these divine words and dedicate ourselves completely to do whatever is being told through these words.
The first section of Sukhmani very clearly explains the greatness of Naam Simran. If we read and understand these divine words and bring them into our daily lives we will be rendering a very high service to the Almighty. In the following text we will try to explain the greatness of Naam Simran as presented in the first section of Sukhmani. The explanations given will go beyond the literal translation. Whatever we have learned and experienced, we will bring to the service of the Sangat.
Please accept this service.

I bow to the Primal Guru.
I bow to the Guru of the ages.
I bow to the True Guru.
I bow to the Great, Divine Guru. ||1||
This divine opening verse is telling us how we start Naam Simran. Whenever we start Naam Simran we should first bow before Akal Purakh and greet Him with pressed palms. A much better way though is to prostrate by lying flat (dandaut bandhna) to Him.
prabh jee thoo maerae praan adhhaarai ||
namasakaar dda(n)ddouth ba(n)dhanaa anik baar jaao baarai ||1|| rehaao ||
O Dear God, You are the Support of my breath of life.
Greeting You with dandauth prostrations (lying flat on belly),
in humility and reverence to You;
so many times, I am a sacrifice.
He is the one who is the complete Truth, everything else is perishable,whatever we see is perishable. Only Akal Purakh is the Truth that lives forever, is never born and never dies. He is the Truth from the beginning, has remained Truth through all ages and will remain the Truth for all ages to come.
So the first Namaskaar (greeting with pressed palms) and dandaut bandhna (greeting by lying flat on the belly) should go to the Akal Purakh. The next Namaskaar and dandaut bandhna should be performed to the Satguru and the Guru. Dandaut bandhana has been recognized as a great act of goodness to ourselves – “Kar Dandaut Punn Wadda Hai”.
We will also request the Sangat to Namaskaar and dandaut bandhna to Shri Guru Granth Sahib Ji, ten Gurus, all Sants and Bhagats and all the Brahmgiani Maha Purakhs of the past and present. The best thing will be to bow before everybody who is connected with the Naam. This will bring humbleness to the soul of ours, and extreme humbleness is the key to the Dargah of Akal Purakh. So before we start the Naam Simran it is of paramount importance that we should perform the Namaskaar as requested in above words.

Naam Simran will bring the highest level of happiness to us. All our sorrows will disappear and we will be filled with complete joy and happiness forever. All the religious books – Ved, Puran, Simratyan, also tell us that Akal Purakh’s Naam, Sat Naam, is the only most pious and pure Naam, it is the only Truth that prevails.
There are countless creatures which do the Naam Simran because they have learned the benefits of Naam Simran. Therefore, we should also do Naam Simran and receive the fruits of this highest level of service to the Almighty.
The Naam is unlimited, it is Agam Apaar Anant and Beant like Akal Purakh Himself. It is the origin of the universe. It is Akal Purakh’s Aad Jugaadi Naam, created by Himself. If a person is able to plant a little bit of the Naam in his Hirda, then it will be impossible to explain the Mahima of such a soul, because such a soul will become a Sant Hirda and will become unlimited like Almighty Himself. Such a soul will become a Pargatyeo Jyot Brahmgiani and a Puran Sant, a Puran Khalsa.
The sangat of such a soul is the greatest boon to the ones who become a part of such a Sangat. This is because such a soul is always absorbed in the Akal Purakh, resides in Sach Khand, has discovered the complete Truth, has become completely Truthful and serves the Truth and nothing else. If we are lucky and have Purbley Janma Kay Sanjog (great good fortune to meet the sant sangat), then we will be blessed with such a sangat and we will be able to achieve salvation – Jivan Mukti. So we all should pray for becoming a part of such a Gurprasadi Sangat, where we can achieve our spiritual goals and get relieved of the cycle of death and birth.
SUKHMANI SUKH AMRIT PRABH NAAM
BHAGAT JANAA KAY MUNN BISRAAM
The real happiness and enjoyment is the Naam of Akal Purakh which is Sat Naam. This means that such happiness which is known as highest level of happiness – complete silence – Param Jyot Puran Parkash, is achieved by Naam Simran.
Naam first goes into the Chit (mind), then into our Hirda (spiritual heart chakra, not biological heart) and then into every bit of our body – “Gurmukh Rom Rom Har Dhiayaa”. This is the state which brings in us this highest level of happiness. Then Naam remains forever in the Hirda of His Bhagat.
This is the reason why Shri Guru Granth Sahib Ji is full of praise for such souls who have become His Bhagats, who have become Puran Sants, Pargatyeo Jyot Brahmgianis, Satgurus. Such souls are the custodians of the Naam Amrit and are blessed with the powers to give Naam and salvation to their Sangat.

This and the following verses are telling us in a very plain and easy to understand language what the fruits of Naam Simran are.
The highest level of sorrow is the involvement in the cycle of birth and death. We have all been involved in this cycle for an unknown amount of time. We don’t know how many times we have been through birth and death. Nor do we know how many time we have been through the 84 lakh junee.
Naam Simran is the only power which can take us out of the cycle of life and death. We will be able to get ourselves out of the fear of death only by Naam Simran. This means that we will be able to achieve salvation, Jivan Mukti, only through Naam Simran.
The biggest fear is the fear of death. This is a universal truth which nobody can deny. The fear of death only vanishes with Naam Simran. Naam Simran is so powerful that it saves us from all our enemies. What are these enemies? These are the Panj Doots : Kaam (lust) , Krodh (anger), Lobh (greed), Moh (sefish attachment) and Ahankaar (pride). They are the deepest mental sicknesses. Along with them we have Asa, Trishna and Mansha, Nindya, Chugli and Bakhili. The Naam is the prescription to cure our heart from these deep mental sicknesses.
All of these enemies of our soul form a barrier between us and the Almighty. Naam Simran is the most powerful weapon to kill all of these enemies. These enemies are the road blocks in the path to Sach Khand. Naam Simran removes these road blocks. Naam Simran keeps our mind alert and helps us to restrain from doing bad deeds under the influence of these enemies. In this way our mind remains awake all the time. We are then able to deal with these enemies in our daily life. We can then defeat them every time they try to cheat us and rob us of the Amrit (our inner life force, God’s energy within us).
Naam Simran makes us fearless in our day to day activities. With Naam Simran we keep on becoming more and more truthful to ourselves, to others and to the Almighty. We are given the strength to speak the Truth, to see the Truth and to serve the Truth. We are not afraid of speaking and serving the Truth. We start to see the difference between Truth and non-Truth. We are able to save ourselves from non-truthful deeds.
Naam Simran eliminates all the sorrows in our life. We become so strong mentally that we are able to tolerate all kinds of sorrows. There remains no difference between sorrow and happiness. We see everything with equal vision (Ik Drisht). We enjoy the complete, pure and pious happiness, Sat Chit Anand. This is the enjoyment of merging with the Param Jyot Puran Parkash, the Nirgun Saroop of Akal Purakh. Such enjoyment of Naam Simran is attained by the blessings received in the Sangat of Puran Sants, Puran Brahmgianis. Naam can only be given by the souls who are involved in the Gurprasadi Game. These Sant Souls are engaged only in Naam Simran. This is the highest service to the Almighty. They and their sangat who do naam simran are blessed by Akal Purakh with all the treasures of eternal happiness, silence of mind and unlimited spiritual powers.

Naam Simran brings all the treasures comprising of Ridhis and Sidhis. Please keep in mind that these treasures give us all kinds of powers to create Karamaats – public surprising acts. These karamaats can unfortunately attract a large number of people towards us. By using these powers we can fulfill the worldly desires of people and become famous. We can make alot of money and have all kinds of worldly comforts. But keep in mind that if we use these powers even once, our spiritual progress will stop right there and then and we will never be able to achieve salvation.
Naam Simran brings us divine knowledge (Brahm gian) and divine intelligence (Tat Gian). We start to listen to Gurbani and start to understand it from within. This motivates us to further adopt Gurbani in our daily life. Our commitment and belief in the Guru, Gurbani and Akal Purakh keeps on enhancing.
All kinds and means of worshipping the Almighty are contained within Naam Simran. This means that Naam Simran is the highest level of service of the Almighty. Serving like this we realize and establish inside our hirda the fact that there is no one like the Almighty. That He is the Supreme Creator of the entire universe. We develop a total belief and commitment to the Almighty.
The real pilgrimage is in doing Naam Simran. This pilgrimage takes place inside us as we go through different spiritual stages. When we do Naam Simran in Smadhi we go through different stages of spirituality as described in Jap Ji, they are : Dharam Khand, Gyan Khand, Saram Khand, Karam Khand and Sach Khand. When we do Naam Simran in Smadhi we actually see and experience divinity through Puran Parkash, Guru Darshan, Sach Khand Darshan and so on. This is the real inner pilgrimage.
When we pass through such stages of spirituality and go into Smadhi and Sunn Smadhi then we are recognized by the Dargah for this highest level of service to the Akal Purakh. We remain satisfied and contented in all circumstances and everything that happens around us appears to be due to the will of God, the Hukam. This means that we are able to recognize the Hukam of Akal Purakh. We don’t complain for any reason and thus remain silent and peaceful under all circumstances. By doing so we are able to achieve our spiritual objectives – “Hukam Bhooj Param Pad Payee”.
Naam Simran is a priceless gift which is given to us only with the blessings of Akal Purakh – that is what Gurprasadi means. There is nothing more precious than Naam Simran. We should all bow to such souls who have been blessed with Naam Simran.

Here Almighty has made it absolutely clear, there should remains no doubt in anybody’s mind whatsoever, that Naam Simran is the highest service of Akal Purakh. This means that all the other Dharam Karams are of a lower value than Naam Simran. So why don’t we devote our time to Naam Simran? When Naam Simran is going to bring us the highest and the sweetest fruits, highest level of happiness, complete silence, Param Jyot and Puran Parkash Darshan, then why don’t we concentrate on Naam Simran? We have learned this fact from Sukhmani that just reading Sukhmani is not the highest level of the service of Akal Purakh, but Naam Simran is the highest service of Almighty. This is a part of Puran Tat Gyan and is mandatory for Puran Bhagti, and people who don’t follow this Gyan and do it, they are still in Dharam Khand.
Naam Simran is the only weapon which can kill all the enemies of our soul. These enemies stand between us and Akal Purakh. These enemies are the serious mental sicknesses and have already been defined earlier on. But, we will name them again here – Panj Doot, Nindya, Chugli, Bakhili, Asa, Trishna and Mansa.
Trishna means desire, it can only be over come by Naam Simran. Desire is seen as the highest level of mental sickness. Desire gives birth to all kinds of Asat Karams. Desire causes us to perform actions that lead us into Maya. Desire is the hardest enemy of ours to kill. Only Naam Simran can kill it, because only Naam Simran can bring us the enlightenment and divine knowledge (brahm gian) we need to keep us on the alert. When we are on the alert for these deep mental sicknesses we do not perform any Asat Karams in our daily life under their influence.
This powerful divine weapon of Naam Simran fulfills all of our desires. This means that we are relieved of all the desires with Naam Simran as well as the fear of death. Naam Simran is the only weapon with which we can conquer death. This means we get released from the cycle of birth and death.
Only Naam Simran can clean our inside, which has been superimposed with the dirt of all our Asat Karams from all our previous lives. Our mind is full of dirt from previous lives. That is why we are unable to concentrate on Naam Simran. However, if we continue to strive and don’t leave it, Naam Simran will eventually clean all the dirt from our mind and our inside. Our mind will become stable and get absorbed in Naam Amrit forever.
Naam eventually goes into the Hirda and resides there forever. Such souls become Sant Hirda and the Almighty always lives in them. We should all bow before such souls who have become stable in their mind, who have won over their mind and who have absorbed themselves in the Almighty. Such souls are full of humbleness. Their extreme humbleness takes them to the height of spirituality. They become the dust of the feet of Kot Brahamand and we should all bow on the feet of such souls. Such humbleness comes only with Naam Simran. Humbleness is the key to the Dargah of Akal Purakh.

The biggest treasure is Akal Purakh’s Naam – Sat Naam. When we do Naam Simran we will become the owner of this priceless treasure of Akal Purakh. When we own this priceless jewel and it goes into our mind and Hirda, then we will become honorable in the Dargah of Akal Purakh.
The Sant Satguru Puran Brahmgiani who owns this priceless jewel of Naam becomes the richest soul in the whole universe. There is nothing above this treasure. Such a soul becomes honorable and is respected everywhere in the universe. Such souls complete their pilgrimage and are accepted as successful in the Dargah. Such souls are always in a very high spiritual state. They don’t need to look for anything more. They have obtained everything. They have achieved Eternity and they have become the King of the entire universe, king of 14 Lok Parlok.
Whatever such souls say will happen, happens. Their words are honored by the Almighty. Such souls never die. They achieve the Eternal happiness and Eternal silence. They win over everything. They are always absorbed in the Almighty. Such souls are blessed by Akal Purakh and He brings them in for achieving such highest levels of spirituality. That is why this is known as a Gurprasadi Game. We should all pray for the dust of the feet of such souls, and by doing so Akal Purakh will bless us and get us involved in this Gurprasadi Game. None of this can happen without the Gurkirpa. We should all pray for Gurkirpa and ask for the eternal treasure of Naam Simran.

With this eternal treasure of Naam Simran, our Hirda will become very powerful and very vast. It will develop in us the highest qualities of head and heart, selflessness, sacrifice for others, helping the poor and needy, doing good to others, thinking about the well being of others and no longer living for ourself, but now living for the upliftment of others. Such qualities will make our life more and more meaningful within society. Just imagine if everyone becomes like this. Will it not be an Age of Truth – Sat Yug? These are the vital signs of a Sant Hirda and such souls will always be highly regarded in the Dargah and in the universe. Such souls will always have bright and shining faces in society and in Dargah. They will always enjoy the highest level of eternal comforts and happiness inside. Such souls win over their minds and their life becomes very pure and pious, truthful and dignified. Such souls are constantly engaged in Naam Simran and always stay very close to the Almighty. They stay in eternal happiness, everlasting happiness – Sat Chit Anand. Such souls live with the Almighty. Every moment they remain in awareness of the things happening around them. For that matter the things happening in the entire universe.
How can we become like such a soul that has been described above? Only with the blessings of a Sant. It means that such a high spiritual treasure can only be obtained from a Puran Sant Satguru Puran Brahmgiani, a Pargatyeo Jyot, who has absorbed Himself in the Almighty and become one with Him. This is the reason why we have been calling this Eternal Game a Gurprasadi Game. We can only play this Gurprasadi Game if we are very fortunate and come across such a soul who is a Puran Sant and get His Gurprasadi blessings. Only a Puran Sant can give the eternal treasure of Naam to us and put us on this path to eternity and salvation, to Sach Khand and closer to the Almighty and eventually make us a Sant Hirda.

The soul and mind which absorbs itself in Naam Simran no longer remains under the need of worldly desires. He will always be in a state of complete satisfaction. He will never feel deficient of anything. No worldly comforts can distract him. All of his worries disappear. This happens to him because all of his actions are under the Hukam of Akal Purakh. Basically, his mind and soul become totally stable. This is a very high spiritual condition the soul remains in. Such a condition comes only in Sach Khand. This is when a person becomes completely truthful, speaks the Truth, listens to the Truth and only serves the Truth.
Such a soul is always engaged in the praise of Akal Purakh and in the service of the Guru and Sangat. Such a soul will always remain stable and absorbed in the Almighty. Nothing can distract such a soul as he always stays in the state of complete eternal peace and happiness. His heart is always blossoming like alotus flower.
Such souls enjoy the eternal music vibrations continuously in their body. They always stay in a never ending eternal happiness. Only such people who are blessed by Akal Purakh Himself can get this eternal treasure of Naam Simran. Again this means it is a Gurprasadi Game.
We will be very fortunate if we can get into the Sangat of such souls who have been blessed with the Gurprasadi Naam Simran, and we should all bow before such souls. Here again humbleness is the key to success.

All the Sants and Bhagats have become existent only through Naam Simran. Such souls could reach these highest levels of spirituality only because of the eternal treasure of Naam Simran they obtained and performed on a regular basis in their lives. This is how these souls became so powerful spiritually and became one on one with Almighty.
There are a number of such souls whose Bani is included in Shri Guru Granth Sahib Jee, including our Great Ten Gurus. Some of them are Sant Kabir Ji, Bhagat Ravidass Ji, Bhagat Nam Dev Ji, Bhagat Baba Farid Ji, Bhagat Peepa Ji, Bhagat Sain Naai Ji, Bhagat Benney Ji and some others.
All of these souls reached the highest levels in spirituality became absorbed in Akal Purakh and obtained Param Padvi and became Puran Brahmgianis. Such souls are also known as Pargatyeo Jyot Puran Brahmgianis.
Such souls have continued to come to this world after Dassam Patshah Ji, some of them are Sant Baba Nand Singh Ji, Sant Baba Ishar Singh Ji and Sant Baba Attar Singh Ji. Such souls who are now engaged in this highest level of service to the Almighty – Naam Simran will continue to provide spiritual energy and guidance to the Sangat for all ages to come. Some of them are here at this moment as well. They are serving the Sangat and will continue to come to this world in all ages to come – “Har Jug Jug Bhagat Upayea”.
This was due to the power of the eternal treasure of Naam Simran that various Rishis and Munnis attained the Brahmgian and wrote all the religious books – Ved and Purans and other Dharam Granths as well. Only Naam Simran could produce such souls who became Sidh – the souls that live at very high levels of spirituality. Only Naam Simran could produce such souls who became Jati – the ones who controlled the Panj Doots, and Daatey.
This earth and the life on earth is supported and run by such souls only who reach at such high levels of spirituality and become Puran Sant, Puran Brahmgiani. God has created this world for us as human beings to be involved in this eternal game and make our lives sublime by achieving salvation.
This is the highest eternal objective of this precious life as a human being given to us by the Almighty. Akal Purakh is present and reveals His presence wherever there is Naam Simran and in whomsoever is engaged in this eternal treasure of Naam Simran.
Here it has been made absolutely crystal clear, if we do Naam Simran with complete and full belief and commitment, then God will reveal His presence in us, and believe us we experience this every moment continuously. This is an ETERNAL TRUTH. But here again it is mentioned in very clear words that only a Gurmukh, the a Puran Sant, can help us and put us on this path of Naam Simran. Remember that only happens with the blessings of Akal Purakh Paar Braham Parmeshwar. This means again that it is a Gurprasadi Game.
In the end we will very humbly request the Sangat to seriously look into their daily life and make a fair judgement as to wether any efforts are being made by us on this path to eternity. Naam Simran is the highest service of the Almighty and is mandatory for us to follow to meet our spiritual objectives and goals. If we find that we are not devoting any time to Naam Simran then we should start doing so right away. If we are putting in some time then we should increase our efforts and time. We should at least do Naam Simran for two and half hours every morning. If we are not doing so then we should pray and try to reach that level. And if we have already reached that level then we should try to go beyond that and go on for longer hours. If we have obtained the Gurprasadi Naam then we are already very fortunate to be involved in the Gurprasadi game, and if we are not yet blessed with Gurprasadi Naam then we should pray for that.
Only Gurprasadi Naam can take us to these high levels of eternal peace and happiness. Only Gurprasadi Naam can take us closer to the Almighty. Only Gurprasadi Naamcan help us in achieving our spiritual goals in a much shorter period of time. Then we can make our life sublime.
The divine knowledge discussed above is a tremendous source of motivation for all of us. We should be able to develop the kind of belief and commitment we need to move on this path to eternity. Naam Simran is the only eternal treasure which can transform us into a Puran Khalsa – “Puran Jyot Jage Ghat Meh Tab Khalas, Tahi Nakhalas Janey”. The Puran Jyot can be ignited inside us only through Gurprasadi Naam and then through the practise of Naam Simran. Naam Amrit is the highest Amrit and only Gurprasadi Naam can leads us into Sach Khand.
