Dhan Dhan Satgur Sachey Patshah Ji Pancham Patshah Ji is continuing to give us the divine wisdom, the Puran Braham Gyan, about
- the Mahima of Akal Purakh,
- His Infinite Divine Powers, and
- what happens when with His Infinite Divine Power a Sant hirda is born in ourself.
A sant hirda is born in ourself when :
- we are blessed with the Puran Braham Gyan,
- our hirda goes into Puran Sachyari Rahat – internal compliance
- our hirda is completely transformed and becomes a Sat hirda
- our hirda gets filled with all the divine qualities,
- our hirda, mind, soul and body gets filled with Amrit,
- for us the Nrgun and Sargun becomes one,
- our mind, hirda, soul and body goes into complete silence,
- our Rom Rom goes into Naam Simran,
- for us Maya is defeated with the Gurparsaad of this Infinite Divine Power of Dhan Dhan Paar Braham Pita Parmesar Ji,
- we are blessed with the Param Padvi – Puran Jyot Parkash in our hirda and Jivan Mukti.
We are not capable of writing or telling anything to anybody. We are just a worthless creature on the face of this Earth. It is the Infinite Divine Power that is doing everything and making everything happen. We can only write these articles with the Gurparsaad of this Infinite Divine Power.
As presented in the previous Astpadi 21, that when the Infinite Divine Power takes over we then we are blessed with this divine understanding of how the entire creation is created by the Creator and how the Infinite Divine Power of the Creator operates the entire creation. This divine wisdom springs up from within ourself. We become the source of this divine wisdom. This divine wisdom doesn’t come by reading Gurbani or any religious writings. This divine wisdom will not spring up even by reading these Gurparsaadi writings. However, these writings will motivate us to dedicate ourself to the Guru and to focus on Naam Simran and Naam Ki Kamai which will lead our path to this Infinite Divine Wisdom.
This divine wisdom comes from the Infinite Divine Power already prevailing inside us. When we go into Bandgi and focus on Naam Simran and as our Bandgi progresses then a stage comes when :
- all of our Bajjar Kappaats are opened,
- our Dassam Duaar is opened,
- all of our Sat Sarovars are illuminated and enlightened with the Naam Amrit.
Then this divine wisdom springs up from within ourself. All of the Infinite Divine Powers are contained in the Sat Sarovars. All of the eternal treasures are buried within ourself in the Sat Sarovars. When the Sat Sarovars are enlightened then the doors to these eternal treasures are opened. Then when we focus on any Shabad then we go deep into the Shabad and feel its depth and its divine meaning.
Gurbani has come from Sach Khand. It is the language of Sach Khand. So how can an ordinary person sitting drenched in Maya Jaal understand the real divine meaning of Gurbani? It would be like a fourth grader trying to solve a rocket science problem. Therefore, as our Bandgi progresses then our understanding improves towards revealing its real deep, divine meaning.
When our Bandgi reaches its height and all of our Sat Sarovars are enlightened and our Dassam Duaar opens and our Bandgi is accepted by Akal Purakh Ji then we are blessed with the Puran Braham Gyan. This is the stage when we will realize that there is one Infinite Divine Power that is the Master of all beings. That this Primal being is the Creator and owns and operates the entire creation. His Infinite Divine Power is Omnipresent and this Infinite Divine Power is the only thing that prevails.
Creation and destruction is the play of God. Anything and everything that is created in time and space, changes with time and meets its end eventually, whereas, this Infinite Divine Power prevails forever. Anything other than this Infinite Divine Power is duality. As long as we don’t lose our identity and individuality, we are in duality. When we lose our identity and individuality then the Infinite Divine Power takes over and duality dies. When duality ends then we reach the complete realization stage.
The death of duality is the :
- defeat of Maya,
- death of Haumai,
- death of all illusions, delusions, Bharams and Dubidha.
That is why there is only One Unique Infinite Divine power. Those who are in One Khand, Sach Khand are Ik Drisht – single vision. The ones living in more than one Khand are in Pakhand and Pakhand is duality. Therefore, the end of duality comes when the Infinite Divine Power takes over.
“Sam Darsee Ek Drisheta” is the one who is not in duality and is absorbed in the Infinite Divine Power and such souls are called Sants, Bhagats, Brahmgianis, Satgurus or Khalsas. Dhan Dhan Satgur Pancham Patshah Ji being blessed with the Infinite Divine Power is very kindly telling us His own story in Sukhmani Bani. Whatever Satguru Ji realized and experienced during His Bandgi process has very kindly been given to us. Gurbani is the story of the Satguru Sahibans, Sants and Bhagats. All of these Paar Braham Roop souls have very kindly tried to enlighten us with their own Puran Braham Gyan.

Dhan Dhan Satgur Sachey Patshah Ji is continuing to explain what happens to us when the Infinite Divine Power takes over us. Our identity and individuality is lost in the process of Bandgi of Dhan Dhan Paar Braham Parmesar Ji.
Bandgi means slavery. Banda means a slave. The slave is the one who has accepted the slavery of Akal Purakh. Banda is the one who has accepted the divine slavery of Akal Purakh and when this slavery is accepted then the Bandgi starts, this divine slavery starts. Therefore, the one who accepts this divine slavery and lives under the Hukam of Akal Purakh is called a Banda and his life becomes Bandgi.
There are two things that we can be a slave of, either Maya or God. If we are not a slave of God then we are a slave of Maya.
Slavery of Maya is :
- being a slave of Kaam, Krodh Lobh, Moh, Ahankaar and our desires,
- drinking the poison of Panj Doots and burning in the fire of desires, and
- reincarnating in the cycle of death and birth.
Slavery of God is :
- Bandgi and eternal bliss of becoming one with this Infinite Divine Power,
- being a Master of Maya,
- making Panj Doots our slaves,
- bringing in contentment,
- no more burning in the fire of desires,
- the Gurparsaad.
The ones who are blessed with the slavery of God are very fortunate. The one who keep on wandering in Maya Janjaal are very unfortunate and are called suicidal in Gurbani.
The ones who focus on Bandgi do so because God wants them to and they are very fortunate. Bandgi is available to those souls only whom God wants to do Bandgi. Such souls are blessed by God with the Gurparsaad of Sat Naam, Naam Simran, Naam Ki Kamai, Puran Bandgi and Seva. Such souls go into the Bandgi process and with the Gurparsaad when their Bandgi is accepted as complete in the Dargah then they are blessed with single vision and their duality dies. These souls are blessed with Puran Tatt Gyan – Puran Braham Gyan. For these souls Nirgun and Sargun becomes one and they are taken over by the Infinite Divine Power and they become one with this Infinite Divine Power. Then there remains no difference between God and these souls. Winning over Maya, death of duality, eternal blessing of Puran Tatt Gyan – Puran Braham Gyan makes these souls the conqueror of the entire universe.
The slave of God becomes the winner of the entire universe and is blessed with the kingdom of the entire universe. Therefore, slavery of God is unmatched, so please quit slavery of Maya and adopt slavery of God for the betterment of our soul and for our future.
Those who are blessed with the Gurparsaad of this divine slavery become Dhan Dhan by merging in God and becoming one with Him. Their Nirgun Sargun becomes one. They go into Sunn Samaadhee and Sahaj Samaadhee. They are filled with Amrit and divine qualities. Above all they become the Mahima of Akal Purakh and live the real divine life on this Earth and in the Dargah. For such souls there is God everywhere.
God’s Infinite Divine Power creates and runs every creation. There is just God and nothing else. Our power to speak is the divine power. The power of hearing is the divine power. These divine powers have been given to we to hear and speak the truth. The entire creation has emanated from this Infinite Divine Power. This Infinite Divine Power is one and is called Nirgun, meaning the Formless One who is beyond the three attributes of Maya. The entire creation is His Sargun Saroop as it is run by its Infinite Divine Power.
Creation and destruction is His divine play, but this infinite divine play is based on the eternal truth. The basis of the entire creation is this Infinite Divine Power. The basis of the creation is His Naam. The basis of the entire creation is the Gurparsaad. This Gurparsaad is the Infinite Divine Power itself which creates and operates, destroys and re-creates again.
Destruction is also based on His divine laws. Creation and operation also happen according to His command, His will, the Hukam of Sachey Patshah Ji. There is nothing that is beyond Sachey Patshah Ji – Dhan Dhan Paar Braham Pita Parmesar Ji. Everything and every creation is under His direct control and runs according to His Hukam. The entire creation is created and operated by the same Infinite Divine Power. Therefore, please focus on this Infinite Divine Power, its slavery will do wonders for us. Unimaginable wonders happen when we completely surrender to Him and become His slaves and lose our identity and individuality and come out of duality. The end of duality is Jivan Mukti.

The Mahima of Dhan Dhan Satgur Paar Braham Parmesar Ji is beyond description. The Mahima of Akal Purakh Ji is Beyant, Anant, Agam, Agochar and Agaadh. Dhan Dhan Satgur Sachey Pancham Patshah Ji has given us this divine wisdom where He is singing the Mahima of Akal Purakh Ji and we all are very fortunate to have this Puran Braham Gyan from Him. We all should be very thankful to Dhan Dhan Pancham Patshah Ji for His kindness and for giving us these priceless jewels of divinity for free.
As we all know that all Satgur Sahibans are Puran Brahmgianis, Puran Sant Satgurus so whatever they are telling us through Gurbani is complete truth, the complete essence of eternal truth. Whatever Satguru Sahibans realized they have given us for free. Therefore, this is our moral responsibility to use our divine power of listening to them, to use our divine power of hearing this eternal truth, to use our divine power of trusting the Gurus and benefit from these divine words of the Gurus.
Satguru Ji is telling us that all the living beings, being a part of His creation, are being operated by the Infinite Divine Power of Dhan Dhan Paar Braham Pita Parmesar Ji. Only the creator has the capability and the power to operate the creation. The entire creation’s basis is the Infinite Divine Power of Sat Saroop, and kindness is one of the divine powers of the Sat Saroop.
He is very kind. His kindness is infinite like Himself. He doesn’t take even a fraction of a second to forgive us for countless misdeeds and sins. Being lost in the Maya Janjaal we have deprieved ourselves from this kindness of God, but as soon as we go into His Charan Sharan He will forgive all our misdeeds and sins and will give us a place in His Charans.
He is the Master of the entire universe. We are just His slaves and should be living in his Hukam to earn His divine kindness and Gurparsaad. His slavery will bring us the Gurparsaad and will make us a Banda and we will be blessed with Bandgi.
The ones who are blessed with His Gur Kirpa and Gurparsaad are protected by Him. The ones who accept His slavery are protected by Him. The ones who accept His slavery never die and become immortal. For those who are slaves of Maya, His doors are always and forever open. Whenever we realize that we are the slaves of Maya and don’t want to be so anymore are very welcome at His door step. We take one step towards Him and He will take tens of millions of steps towards us. His Kirpa on us is always available but our dedication and how much we surrender at His Charan Sharan will determine how much we will be rewarded with His Kirpa.
Ultimately, we can’t go anywhere else. At the end, at some point in time and space we will have to return to His Charan Sharan. We can’t keep on drinking the poison of Maya forever, we will have to turn around towards Him and accept His slavery and leave Maya’s slavery. The sooner we accept His slavery the better it is for us.
His Bandgi is the “Jugat.” This means the Gurparsaad is the means and way of being accepted by Him as His Banda, His Sevak, His slave, His servant. His slave means the slave of SAT. His Sevak means the Sevak of SAT. His servant means the servant of SAT. And SAT is the Divine Truth, is His Naam – Sat Naam, is His Infinite Divine Power.
Complete surrender at the Sat Charans of the Guru with Tunn, Munn and Dhan is the “Jugat” which brings us the “Jeea Daan” meaning the Daan of Naam, Naam Simran, Naam Ki Kamai, Puran Bandgi and Seva which is the highest Daan, the highest divine gift we can get.
Niranjan means beyond the darkness of Maya; beyond the three attributes of Maya. Niranjan is the creator of Maya is served by Maya and Maya is His slave. This is the Infinite Divine Power who is the King of Kings, the King of the entire universe. The one who is blessed with this stage of spirituality of winning over the Maya and for whom this Infinite Divine Power takes over, and the one who becomes one with this Infinite Divine Power is also blessed with the Kingdom of the Entire Universe.
Such a soul becomes one from inside out, duality dies, and truth prevails inside and outside as well. For such a soul the Infinite Divine Power prevails everywhere. This Infinite Divine Power contains all the divine powers, the divine powers in the form of all divine qualities or all the infinite divine qualities are contained with in this Infinite Divine Power.
Look at this wonderful piece of divine wisdom, Dhan Dhan Satgur Sachey Patshah Ji Dhan Dhan Shri Satgur Nanak Dev Ji Maharaj has called Himself as Dass – slave and by saying so He has proved that slavery of God is the Gurparsaad.
Dhan Dhan Satguru Ji Maharaj have also called Himself as Dassan Dass at several places in Gurbani. He has also called himself Loonharami in Gurbani as well. This shows Satguru Ji’s infinite humility and humbleness. We are a sacrifice to those who are the slaves of Akal Purakh. The slave of Akal Purakh is the slave of entire creation as well and we are a sacrifice to Dhan Dhan Paar Braham Pita Parmesar Ji who is so kind that He calls His slaves as His own Mahima.

“Pooran” means perfect. Perfection means :
- completely truthful from inside out,
- filled with all the divine qualities,
- complete in itself,
- complete silence,
- Sat, the one who is not prone to any changes, the one who has been Sat from its inception, the one who is Sat now and will remain Sat for all ages to come and forever, Amrit. The one who is Amrit Himself,
- the One who never dies,
- the One who is never born.
Therefore, perfection is only the Infinite Divine Power, which is called God, Allah, Paar Braham Parmesar, Akal Purakh.
Since “Pooran” is the source of all divine qualities. That is why He is called “Guni Nidhaan” – the source of all divine treasures, the source of all divine powers. One of these divine qualities is kindness. His kindness is available equally to every creation. There is no place for duality in perfection, so that is why He is single vision – “Ik Drisht”, everybody is equal for Him, every creation is equally important, and the Amrit is available equally to everybody.
He is present in His every creation and all His divine qualities are available equally to everybody. By way of His presence in every creation He takes care of every creation Himself in many and unique and surprising ways. His ways and means that He uses to take care of every creation are infinite too. He gives food even to an insect which lives inside a stone cave where there seemingly is no food.
Infinite divine power means perfection and source of all divine powers, the source of all divine qualities, the source of divine laws. We are not any exception from His omnipresence. He is equally present inside our body too, in fact He is running our body. His divine powers are making everything happen inside us and all around us. Therefore, being Omnipresent He knows what is going inside our mind, body and soul at any and every moment. Our deviation from truth will be a source of trouble for us and our adherence to the Truth will pave a way for us to be blessed by this Infinite Divine Power.
He wants us to move towards perfection. Focusing on Sat is moving towards perfection, staying drenched in the scum of Maya is going away from perfection. Only with the blessings of divine wisdom are we able to understand, appreciate and enjoy His divine game. Without divine wisdom we remain entangled in the web of Maya and will not be able to get even a clue as to what is good or bad for us. That is why it is called Maya Janjaal or Bhavsagar.
The Infinite Divine Power is the basic foundation of every creation and the entire nature is absorbed in divinity. It is a divine truth that every creation of nature does Naam Simran. It is a divine truth that every creation in nature lives in His Hukam. Trust is the key to His Bandgi. Trust is a infinite divine quality that we have been blessed with. We have this divine power that we can use to trust Him. In fact, trust is Bandgi. Those who trust in Him devote themselves to Him with unconditional love are blessed with the Gurparsaad. Trust is the key to the Puran Braham Gyan. Trust is the key to the Puran Tatt Gyan. Those souls who go into infinite trust in God are blessed with the Puran Braham Gyan. So please put trust in Gurbani and do what Gurbani is telling we to do. Put trust in the Guru and just do what the Guru tells us to do. Put trust in God and do whatever the Gurus are telling us to do and we will be blessed with this Infinite Divine Power of Puran Braham Gyan, which is the Highest level of spirituality.
Those who put their trust in God are blessed with all the infinite divine qualities. God transforms them and makes them like Him. Their Nirgun Sargun becomes one. They are blessed with Sunn Samaadhee. They are blessed with all eternal treasures. The Infinite Divine Power takes over them completely and they go into complete internal compliance. They go into complete silence. They become a Sat hirda. Therefore, all we have to do is put our trust in Gur and Guru and the Guru will take care of us.
In all practical senses putting trust means complete surrender at the Sat Charans of the Guru with Tunn, Munn and Dhan. Giving up everything at the Charan Sharan of Guru is putting trust in Him. This will open the doors of Gurparsaad for us and we will be able to realize this Infinite Divine Power.

The Gurparsaad of living in Hukam is the key to the Dargah. Living in Hukam brings us the Param Padvi. Param Padvi is the highest spiritual stage as explained by Dhan Dhan Satguru Sahibans in the Gurbani at various places. This is a real divine jewel of Tatt Gyan that has been placed at some places in Gurbani. Similarly there are other such diamonds of divine wisdom that have been placed at some places in the Gurbani. Those who are blessed with these divine jewels and those who get to know about their target to be achieved and then they work to find how to reach that target.
Param Padvi is achieving :
- Puran Jyot Parkash in our hirda,
- Puran Tatt Gyan,
- Puran Braham Gyan,
- Atam Rus Amrit – the highest Amrit,
- merger with the Infinite Divine Power,
- victory over Maya and going beyond three attributes of Maya,
- the state of Puran Sant, a Puran Satguru, a Puran Brahmgiani, a Puran Khalsa.
This is all achieved by living in Hukam, living in the command of the Master. Therefore, to figure out how to achieve living in Hukam is of prime importance.
It is clear that living in Hukam can’t be achieved by our own efforts. Whilst living a life of Maya it is not possible to achieve living in Hukam. Therefore, there is only one way that we can achieve this divine stage and that is achieving the Gurparsaad.
It is possible to achieve the Gurparsaad by giving up everything at the Charan Sharan of Gur and Guru and focusing on Sat Ki Karni. It is possible to achieve the Gurparsaad by going to the Charan Sharan of a soul who has already achieved the Param Padvi and completely surrendering at His Sat Charans with Tunn, Munn and Dhan and also with trust, devotion and love. This Gurparsaad in a Puran Sant Ki Sangat blesses us with the Naam, Naam Simran, Naam Ki Kamai, Puran Bandgi and Seva and our Bandgi process begins.
As we then progress in our Bandgi we are able to defeat Maya and merge with the Almighty. When His Infinite Divine Power takes over us completely we become blessed with the Param Padvi. Then all of our senses and Karam Indrees come automatically under Puran Hukam. Whatever we do is under the Hukam and all of our time is spent living in Hukam. Therefore, Gurparsaad is the key to achieve the Param Padvi and the ones whom God wants to bless with the Gurparsaad are blessed with the Gurparsaad.
The ones who are blessed with the Gurparsaad of Naam dedicate themselves to the Naam Simran and to collecting Naam Ki Kamai. Naam Ki Kamai transforms them completely inside out and makes them Sat Roop and those who dedicate themselves to the Naam, their desire to meet God never goes in vain. They achieve their objective of this human life and they do achieve salvation.
Please keep in mind that Naam is Gurparsaad. Naam Simran is also Gurparsaad. Naam Ki Kamai is also Gurparsaad. Puran Bandgi is also Gurparsaad and Seva is also Gurparsaad. Don’t ever think that we can do anything like this by ourself. If we do so then it is Haumai. It is only God’s Infinite Divine Power that can make it happen.
Some people preach various techniques of Naam Simran, which is absolutely wrong, There is no technique for Naam Simran, this is Gurparsaad and when we are blessed with the Gurparsaad then we sit down in silence and focus on Sat Naam in our mind and we will find that our mind is reciting Sat Naam. That our Surat is reciting Sat Naam in silence.
Naam Simran is trust, devotion and love and there is no technique for trust, devotion and love for the Guru, it is all Gurparsaad. We just sit down when we feel the urge to do so and we find Naam Simran going inside us. Just stay focused on this internal Naam Simran and start to go into Samaadhee and then Sunn Samaadhi. The key is the Gurparsaad, the Mehramat, the Karam – the Kirpa, the Gurkirpa which will put us internally into Sat Naam Simran. This way our inside will continue to be cleansed as our Simran goes higher and higher.
There are several stages that have been described in another Gurparsaadi writing here. Please take sometime to read this divine writing to have a understanding of the Simran process. Basically we will not even know when Naam has travelled to all our Sat Sarovars and when the Naam has gone into our Rom Rom. All this just happens by itself because it is Gurparsaad.
Those who keep on trying it their own ways keep doing it without reaching anywhere. But, the ones who give up everything at the Charan Sharan of the Guru get it very easily. Self wisdom doesn’t bring it, doing Gurmat brings it easily. So please understand that complete surrender is the way to go, giving Tunn, Munn and Dhan at the Sat Charans of the Guru is the way to go and make it happen very easily. When Naam goes into mind, hirda, and body then everything is purified and the hirda is transformed into a Khalsa hirda.
All the shackles of Maya are broken due to internal detachment and fearlessness. Duality dies and single vision is achieved – Ik Drisht is Nirvair – without any anmosity with anybody. Everybody is equal for a Nirvair. His love for every creation is same as His love for God. No discrimination with anybody. This is all achieved by the Gurparsaad of Naam. When Naam goes into the hirda the soul becomes a Satguru and God appears in this soul in the form of a Satgur, or a Puran Sant or a Puran Brahmgiani.
saaDhsang mil karahu anand.
gun gaavhu parabh parmaanand.
raam naam tat karahu beechaar.
darulabh dayh kaa karahu uDhaar.
amrit bachan har kay gun gaa-o.
paraan taran kaa ihai su-aa-o.
aath pahar parabh paykhahu nayraa.
mitai agi-aan binsai anDhayraa.
sun updays hirdai basaavhu.
man ichhay naanak fal paavhu. ||5||
Wherever there is a Puran Sant sitting, the Dargah is right there. Wherever there is a Puran Brahmgiani present, the Dargah is right there. If we can find a Satguru we can find the Dargah right there. Wherever we can find a Puran Khalsa we can find the Dargah right there.
There is no difference between God and a Puran Sant. There is no difference between a Puran Brahmgiani and God. There is no difference between a Satguru and Akal Purakh. There is no difference between a Khalsa and a Satguru. That is why wherever there is such a soul sitting, the Dargah is right there and wherever there is Dargah there is no Maya. Wherever there is such a soul sitting, there are no Panj Doots and there remians no desire when we are sitting under the Chattar of such a soul.
Wherever such a soul is sitting there is Amrit. Wherever such a soul is sitting the Gurparsaad is right there. Wherever such a soul is sitting the Infinite Divine Power has all its eternal treasures sitting right there. That is why when we go into the Sat Sangat of such a soul our mind, hirda, soul and body goes into peace and we forget about rest of the world including our pains and sorrows. Therefore, wherever such a soul is sitting there is Param Anand – the highest level of happiness.
In order to be blessed with the Gurparsaad and this Parmanand on a continuous basis living at the Sat Charans of such a soul is the right way to go. When we go into this Param Anand – eternal bliss and eternal happiness, then we will be absorbed in Naam and Mahima of Dhan Dhan Paar Braham Pita Parmesar Ji. God is a source of all the infinite divine qualities and Gurparsaad will start to fill our hirda with these divine qualitites.
Naam is the :
- essence of all divine thoughts,
- essence of the entire creation,
- ladder to the Dargah,
- path to the Dargah,
- essence of the Shabad Guru,
- essence of Gurbani,
- essence of all the Braham Ki Katha,
- essence of Shri Guru Granth Sahib Ji,
- Guru of Gurbani,
- Highest Hukam,
- Infinite Divine Power,
- container of all the eternal treasures,
- the source of Puran Braham Gyan,
- the source of Puran Tatt Gyan and
- above all Naam is the Gurparsaad.
Naam is everything and only Naam will bring us Jivan Mukti. Only Naam will bring us merger with God.
This human life is very important, because only a human life is empowered to achieve the Jivan Mukti. No other lifeform (junie) is empowered to do Puran Bandgi. This divine gift is available only to human beings. Therefore, please take advantage of this human life and dedicate it to Naam, Naam Simran, Naam Ki Kamai, Puran Bandgi and Seva. This will bring Jivan Mukti.
The Guru’s word is called Amrit Bachan because these words are complete truth. These are Sat Bachans and Sat is the Amrit. The ones who follow these divine words achieve the Amrit and their hirda gets filled with Amrit and all divine qualities and the Mahima of Akal Purakh Ji. Therefore, please carve these divine words in our hirda. Carving means bringing these words into our daily life and putting them into practice. When we do so then our mind, hirda, soul and body will be filled with Amrit. All our illusions, delusions, Bharams and Dubidha all our confusion and misconceptions will disappear and we will be blessed with divine wisdom by following these Amrit Bachans.
Following the Amrit Bachans is the only way to save our soul from the drinking the poison of Maya and leading our soul to salvation. When we follow these divine words then our hirda will be filled with contentment and we will be left with no desires.

Dhan Dhan Satgur Sachey Pancham Patshah Ji is very kindly telling us His own experiences through His divine words. He is continuing to give us the divine wisdom about the Mahima of the Infinite Divine Power of Dhan Dhan Paar Braham Pita Parmesar Ji. He is continuing to tell us what happens when the Infinite Divine Power takes over us completely. About what happens when we become one with this Infinite Divine Power. About what happens when we merge in this Infinite Divine Power.
The merger with this Infinite Divine Power and losing our individuality and identity will bring us Jivan Mukti whilst living in this world. We will be living a life of a Jivan Mukt which is the real divine life. Living beyond the three attributes of Maya and still enjoying all the comforts of life. For such a soul all the worldly things become commodities that have been given to us for living this life.
All our Karni becomes Sat Ki Karni. Maya serves us. Panj Doots become our servants. There are no desires left. At the same time we will secure a place in the Dargah forever. Then when we leave this body we live in Dargah forever. All this happens with the Gurkirpa and Gurparsaad of a Poora Guru, which we have been calling as Puran Sant, Puran Brahmgiani, Satgur or a Puran Khalsa – the one who has achieved the Param Padvi. Only such a soul can give us the Gurparsaad.
Pooree Deekhiaa means the Gurparsaad of Naam, Naam Simran, Puran Bandgi and Seva and whatever Poora Guru tells us to do is the Hukam of Akal Purakh. Those who earn the word of Poora Guru are blessed with the Gurparsaad. Poora Guru with the Gurparsaad plants the Naam in our mind, Surat, hirda and in Rom Rom.
With the Gurparsaad all our mental sicknesses, pains and sorrows start to disappear. The mental sicknesses are Kaam, Krodh, Lobh, Moh, Ahankaar and Trishna. With the Gurparsaad we get cured of all these chronic mental sicknesses. We become fearless. We are internally detached from everything that is worldly and false and this detachment makes us fearless. Our fear of losing worldly things including worldly relationships disappears and we become fearless.
When Naam goes into our hirda, our hirda is purified and goes into Puran Sachyari Rehat. This is the real Rehat. The Rehat of winning over the Panj Doots and Trishna. All these divine blessings and the Gurparsaad make us a “Sach Kaa Vapaari” – the one who deals only in Eternal Truth. The one who sees, hears, speaks, delivers and serves the Eternal Truth.
Param Padvi make us a “Naam Kaa Vapaari” – the one whose business becomes dealing in Naam only. This is the real divine business with which we will keep on collecting all the eternal treasures that will be highly appreciated in the Dargah. Serving the ONE – “Ik Oankaar Satnaam” is the best business we can be in. There is no business better and higher paying than this business. What can be a better business than collecting the Eternal Treasures? We have been provided with a invaluable chance to become a “Naam Kaa Vapaari” being blessed with this human life, so why are we wasting this “Heera Janam Amol” in drinking the Poison of Maya?
Please dedicate it at the Charan Sharan of the Poora Guru and become a Naam Kaa Vapaari. Who knows when we will get another chance to do so, even if we get another chance at all. So why waste this one chance that we have already been blessed with.
Bandgi is very simple and very easy – just surrender at the Sat Charans of the Poora Guru with Tunn, Munn and Dhan, with trust, devotion and love and everything will happen by itself. Poora Guru will take us through the Bandgi and will make us a Naam Kaa Vapaari.

Whatever we may do in our this life, or whatever we may have been doing in all our previous lives, and God knows how many lives we have wasted like this already, we will have to come back one day to the Charan Sharan of the Almighty.
It is a divine truth that in this dark age of Kalyug, which we are presently going through, almost everyone has been through a large number of human lives. Which means that almost everyone currently in human life has already wasted a large number of human lives. Just to give an idea, this number of human lives ranges anywhere between 200 to 400 livetimes. And who knows in between how many times we have been through the rest of the non-human lifeforms (junie). That is why Dhan Dhan Satgur Sachey Patshah Ji Nanak Dev Ji Maharaj has said that wherever he looks he finds only ghosts –Jinn Bhootney in the form of human beings. There is a Gurparsaadi writing explaining Guru Nanak Patshah Ji’s divine words posted here. Please take some time to read this writing, to find out how bad it is to be born in this dark age of Kalyug. But, at the same time Satguru Ji has given us this divine wisdom about doing Naam and how easy it is to achive Jivan Mukti with Naam.
Satguru Ji has explained that achieving Jivan Mukti in Kalyug is the easiest compared to achieving Jivan Mukti in the other Ages. The other Ages are: Satyug, Treta, and Dwaaper. In Kalyug we will be able to achieve Jivan Mukti just by doing Naam. We have already wasted a large number of our lives, but at the same time we are very fortunate to be blessed with this human life again. So why should we waste this life as well? It doesn’t make any sense to waste this human life again. Therefore, we should take this divine opportunity and dedicate this human life at the Charan Sharan of the Guru and focus on Naam, Naam Simran, Naam Ki Kamai, Puran Bandgi and Seva. Otherwise, for sure we will have to come back and do it at some time in future after wasting this life as well.
Doing Naam, Naam Simran, Naam Ki Kamai Puran Bandgi will bring us Jivan Mukti and we will be able to become one with God. Going to the Charan Sharan of Akal Purakh is the only way to be blessed with the Jivan Mukti. Some people get very fearful when they think of the death. They are very afraid of dying. In fact, if we look inside ourself and focus on death, which is bound to happen for sure one day, we will also be afraid of dying. Everybody wants to live and to live a happy and healthy life. Being fearful it is not possible to live a happy and healthy life. When we focus on ourself, we find that there is a constant fear that we are living in. This is the fear of losing our relationships, fear of losing our properties, money and worldly possessions. And on top of these fears the fear of death is also present. Dhan Dhan Satgur Sachey Patshah Ji is telling us a solution of this problem of fear
nirbha-o japai sagal bha-o mita.
This is what we tell people when they come to us with this fear of death. Therefore, those who are afraid of death and those who want to be fearless should focus on “Nirbhao Sat Naam” Simran. This removes all fears and makes us fearless.
Focusing on Naam frees us from the shackles of Maya and sets us free. Freedom from Maya is Jivan Mukti. Gurparsaad of Naam, Naam Simran, Naam Ki Kamai frees us from the slavery of Maya and ensures we are protected by the Infinite Divine Power forever. Naam Ki Kamai brings us all of the eternal treasures.
Naam Ki Kamai brings us the never ending, everlasting and eternal happiness. All our fears and worries disappear. Our Haumai is killed. The death of Haumai brings us Jivan Mukti. Death of Haumai takes us beyond Maya and we merge into the Infinite Divine Power. Everything falls into the right place for us. All of our problems disappear. There is no power superior to the Infinite Divine Power of Dhan Dhan Paar Braham Pita Parmesar Ji. When we become one with this Infinite Divine Power then there is no negative power that can harm us. In fact, we are able to help others to focus on Naam, Naam Simran, Naam Ki Kamai, Puran Bandgi and Seva.
mat pooree amrit jaa kee darisat.

safal darsan sundar har roop.

jis man basai so hot nihaal.
taa kai nikat na aavat kaal.

Dhan Dhan Satgur Sachey Patshah Ji is very kindly telling us the Mahima of those people who go through the Naam Simran, collect Naam Ki Kamai, achieve Puran Bandgi and reach the Param Padvi.
“Mat Pooree” means achieving Puran Braham Gyan, achieving the Gurparsaad of Puran Tatt Gyan, which is the highest Amrit. This is also called Atam Rus Amrit in Gurbani. Their mind, hirda, soul and body gets filled with Amrit and they themselves become a source of Amrit. Amrit flows out from their body. Their “Drisht” – becomes Amrit. Which means that wherever and on whomsoever, they look at they give Amrit even through their eyes. That is why wherever such souls are sitting that place becomes the Dargah.
Such souls are the source of Amrit. Such a soul becomes Amrit Kaa Dataa. Their words are Amrit, their Drisht is Amrit, and Amrit flows out of their body on a continuous basis. Darshan of such a soul is the Darshan of Amrit. Amrit is God, therefore, their Darshan is the Darshan of God. They are the living God on the Earth. And only with their Darshan do we achieve Jivan Mukti. However, we must go for their Darshan with complete surrender at their Sat Charans and dedicate everything at their Sat Charans. Meaning we must give up our Tunn, Munn and Dhan at their Sat Charans, then nothing can stop us from achieving the Gurparsaad and Jivan Mukti.
Amrit flows from their Sat Charans as well. Nothing is more wonderful than their Sat Charans. Nothing is more beautiful than their Sat Charans. Nothing is more rewarding then their Charan Dhool. They are a spring of Amrit and nothing is more beautiful than the spring of Amrit. Nothing is more beautiful than such souls who become the source of Amrit for the entire universe. Nothing is more rewarding than their Darshan which brings Jivan Mukti to the entire creation. That is why these souls are called Dhan. Their parents (Maat Pita) are called Dhan Dhan. Their whole family (Kul) is called Dhan Dhan. The place they are sitting becomes Dhan Dhan. Those who achieve their Darshan become Dhan Dhan. Their words are Dhan Dhan. Their Seva is Dhan Dhan. Their presence on Earth is Dhan Dhan. Their Charans are Dhan Dhan.
Such souls are blessed with the divine power to know and read the minds of their Sat Sangis. That is why the Katha of a Brahmgiani is never planned. Only those divine words will be delivered to the Sat Sangat which are needed at that particular time. Only those jewels of Puran Braham Gyan will come out of His mouth, which are desperately needed by the Sat Sangat sitting in front of Him. Such souls have been addressed by Satguru Ji as “Purakh Pardhaan” as there is nothing above these souls because they are one with God.
Whosoever is taken over by the Infinite Divine Power is not effected by time and space. Such souls go beyond time and space. They become immortal. They never die nor are they ever born again. They achieve the “Amraa Pad”, meaning that they achieve a permanent place in Dargah. They achieve the Sat Chit Anand – Parmanand – everlasting eternal happiness, never ending happiness.
The key to their spiritual success is the Sat Sangat of a Saadh – Sat Sangat of a Puran Sant, Sat Sangat of a Puran Brahmgiani, Sat Sangat of a Satguru, Sat Sangat of a Puran Khalsa, because such a soul is the source of Amrit, such a soul is the source of Gurparsaad of Naam, Naam Simran, Naam KI Kamai and Puran Bandgi.
The Amrit can be achieved only from a source of Amrit. This Gurparsaad can be achieved by surrendering completely at their Sat Charans with Tunn, Munn and Dhan and with trust, devotion and love. The Gurparsaad will make us like them. The Gurparsaad will make us the Mahima of Akal Purakh. Therefore, this is our humble request at the Charans of the Sat Sangat Ji, to please focus on Sat Naam. Please focus on Sat Ki Karni. Please focus on complete surrender at the Charans of the Guru. Give our Tunn, Munn and Dhan to the Guru. Give up completely at the Charan Sharan of the Guru and do so with trust, devotion and love and be successful in achieving the Gurparsaad.
