Amrit (Pick and choose)

I Know the above sounds terrible, but unfortunately thats the way it is for some people.

I hear people say "There were a lot more people that were going to take amrit today, but they say that this jathas rules are too strict and they will wait for another jatha and take it from them".

Shocking really, that we have come to a state where we 'take' amrit on our conditions, not Guru jis! I mean after all who is guru ji, he doesnt understand how it is to live in this 'modern' age!

Its shows that we have no trust or faith in Gurujis words and hukam. People like me continue to question his authority. Then we ask why are we in this sorry state. The answers simple, we are not with our Guru ji.

Our Guruji is beyond time and beyond this so called modern western world. He is the knower of all hearts. He knows our worries and our thoughts, but have we ever let him take care of it? No! We think we can live our life in a way that we can control everything, but just once, why dont you lay everything at his feet and then see how you walk through this life with ease.

If we become his, do you think he will ever let us down? No, because only a human can let people down, our Guruji is God, so whats to worry?

If you have love in your heart for Guruji, go to him (panj pyare) with the thought that Guruji, im not worthy, my life is lifeless, I have come to your feet to beg for your amrit, all I can give is this empty head (which I think is full of wisdom). If thats the attitude you come with then Guruji will wake you up for amrit vela, Guruji will jap naam for you, Guruji will look after you kakaars. Thats what a father does, how great is he, that we dont know, but sometimes I think we dont deserve his mercy and compassion.

The path is not easy because we think that I cant do it, well we cant do anything, let Guruji do it and live by his hukam and his will and lets live life by his rules, if you see it as a chore, then it becomes like work, now none of us really like going to work do we?! But if you see it as love, communication with Guruji and that one desire, to have darshan of the Masters feet, then it becomes an addiction.

Me and You

You: Take it, you don't know, tomorrow may not come.

Me: Wait, how about if you mess up? There is no turning back you know.

You: Mess up? He will be with you all the way, holding your hand, whats to fear then?

Me: How about if you cant do it? I'm not doubting God, but I have my doubts about you!

You: I think you are under estimating its power, remember you are giving your head, make a request so you never trip up.

Me: What makes you think you are worthy of taking it in the first place? Do you follow the conduct? You cant even get up in the morning! Oh and naam, well yeah it comes out of your mouth, but don't make me say where your mind is.

You: But there are others who have taken it and are you not worthy or as good as them?

Me: Oh so now your comparing yourself with others, not to mention judging others! What a great disciple you would make! Ha!

You: Remember, sometimes you have to give something, to receive something.

Me: Will you be picking and choosing, which group to take it from?

You: Your not taking anything from any group, you are trading something small for immortality and you are receiving it from your Master. O foolish mind you will always be in doubt, stop questioning and jump in with full faith, with fear and love in your heart, this is the time, this is your best opportunity, don't miss out........

4 Boyfriends - From Tapoban site.

4 Boyfriends - This Is Something To Think About.

Once upon a time, there was this girl who had four boyfriends. She loved the 4th boyfriend the most and adored him with rich robes and treated him to the finest of delicacies. She gave him nothing but the best.

She also loved the 3rd boyfriend very much and was always showing him off to neighboring kingdoms. However, she feared that one day he would leave her for another.

She also loved her 2nd boyfriend. He was her confidant and was always kind, considerate and patient with her. Whenever this girl faced a problem, she could confide in him, and he would help her get through the difficult times. The girls 1st boyfriend was a very loyal partner and had made great contributions in maintaining her wealth and kingdom. However, she did not love the first boyfriend. Although he loved her deeply, she hardly took notice of him.

One day, the girl fell ill and she knew her time was short. She thought of her luxurious life and wondered, I now have four boyfriends with me, but when I die, I'll be all alone.' Thus, she asked the 4th boyfriend, I loved you the most, endowed you with the finest clothing and showered great care over you. Now that I'm dying, will you follow me and keep me company? No way! Replied the 4th boyfriend, and he walked away without another word. His answer cut like a sharp knife right into her heart.

The sad girl then asked the 3rd boyfriend, 'I loved you all my life. Now that I'm dying, will you follow me and keep me company? No!', replied the 3rd boyfriend. 'Life is too good! When you die, I'm going to marry someone else! 'Her heart sank and turned cold.

She then asked the 2nd boyfriend, 'I have always turned to you for help and you've always been there for me. When I die, will you follow me and keep me company? I'm sorry, I can't help you out this time , replied the 2nd boyfriend. At the very most, I can only walk with you to your grave. His answer struck her like a bolt of lightning, and the girl was devastated.

Then a voice called out: 'I'll go with you. I'll follow you no matter where you go.' The girl looked up, and there was her 1st boyfriend. He was very skinny as he suffered from malnutrition and neglect. Greatly grieved, the girl said, 'I should have taken much better care of you when I had the chance!.

In truth, you have 4 boyfriends in your life: Your 4th boyfriend is your body. No matter how much time and effort you lavish in making it look good, it will leave you when you die.

Your 3rd boyfriend is your possessions, status and wealth. When you die, it will all go to others.

Your 2nd boyfriend is your family and friends. No matter how much they have been there for you, the furthest they can stay by you is up to the grave.

And your 1st boyfriend is your Soul , often neglected in pursuit of wealth, power and pleasures of the world. However, your Soul is the only thing that will follow you where ever you go. Cultivate, strengthen and cherish it now, for it is the only part of you that will follow you to the throne of God and continue with you throughout Eternity.

What is that Love?

That Love that stops it from being a chore?

My Love is bound by my 5 senses, how can I realise true Love?

Love should be unconditional, it should have no bounds, what makes thy Love different?

Why does my Love stop and start, many a time?

How do I invoke the Love within my heart for you?

Why follow something without Love?

I believe it, I know its true, I know its the right way, I have full faith in it. Then why cant I follow it? Why can I not truly Love it?

True Love is a longing, its the true desire, its a flame that should be consuming your body. You should not be able to eat, sleep, work because of the pain that true Love has brought you. That pain of seperation.

My Love should be like that of a child; eager, innocent, unconditional, faithful and determined. I ask again where is my Love?

Why am I wondering from place to place, when I know these places cant satisfy my Love and will not fill that hole.

O True Master make me realise your Love.


Am I only writing this, so that somebody else can read it?

I am the yo-yo,

You are the hand,

Maya is the string.

Everything is in your control.

Sometimes the string is so long between the yo-yo and the hand, the yo-yo begins to roll along the dirt, only by your command can the distance be cut and the yo-yo can come back in your hand.

The hand is always over the yo-yo, this you must not forget.

Take me

Only take me when I think of you,

take me whilst I sing your praises,

take me when I breathe your name,

take me when I realise you,

take me when I have done your work,

take me when I love you,

take me when I am in bliss,

take me when I have controlled The 5,

take me when I am in the 5th state,

take me from the tenth gate,

take me when I see you,

take me whilst I am at your feet,

take me when I've tasted your sweet,

take me when I hear your sound,

take me when I smell your fragrance,

take me when I become your servant,

take me when I am with you.......
until then keep me breathing......

There was no tent!

Whilst travelling down to London for the 84 March/Demonstration, we were having a discussion on Sikhi (this usually takes place once a week in the Gurdwara). One thing I learnt was how distorted so many of Gurujis Sakhis have become. Who is to blame? Us Sikhs! We hear one thin from a person and believe it to be the truth and it spreads all over.

Think about the motive and question everything that doesnt seem right.

One of the biggest misconceptions is on Vasakhi in 1699 Guru Gobind Singh Ji Maharaaj, had a tent on the stage, he took each Pyaara 1 by 1 and blood was dripping from the tent, whilst in the tent he cut up an animal, to make the people think it was human blood! LIE. Why would Guru ji say one thing and do another? Why would he hide it?

There is a muslim spy who witnesses all this and writes exactly what happened in a report he wrote to the Emperor. This report is still available! This report doesnt mention any tent or animals. The Guruji chopped each Panj Pyaaras head off, becasue that is what he asked for and that is what he said he would do. Can you even imagine how brave the 5th Pyaara must have been? To see 4 heads be chopped off before him and still go up to offer his head! What was the love these men had? I dont have it, thats for sure! Whilst all heads were chopped off, Guruji then put the heads on different bodies (showing total equality).

The muslim spy wrote to the Emperor in his report that after seeing this immacualte scene, this would be his last report as he was now also going to take Gurujis amrit. Amazing...!

How much sense and beauty does the truth show! Yet we pollute it, its time for me to wake up!

Thankyou for my soul, it has a hunger for you, it yearns for your name, it cries when I dont do nitnem!

It battles the mind everyday, sometimes it wins and sometimes it doesnt, but that is your play!

And then i see some poor souls, who dont question why they are here or who has put them here, they dont want to know anything about how they can become 1 with you. But again that is your play, im sure you have installed a on and off button, you decide when it switches off and when you turn it on.

Help my soul to free itself from the chains of Karma and make it become a King of Dharma.....

Your hairstyle goes out of fashion, quicker than a season.
My hairstyle has been in fashion for centuries and is here to stay.

You style your hair on mortal ones.
I style mine on the Immortal One!

You call it "clean" shaven, those with beards are Brave Men.

Guru Maanio Granth

This is concluded from another post I ade a while back about some people treating Guru Ji as a mere book and having a go at groups like R4G.

The order of Sri Guru Gobind Singh Ji

"There are three forms of mine, O Nand, listen attentively. Formless, Physical form and Gurshabad.

Let me explain further. My first form is formless (beyond the qualities of rajo, tamo, sato). Many many times this has been discussed in sacred scriptures. The second form is Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji. CONSIDER THE PAGES OF SRI GURU GRANTH SAHIB JI AS MY LIMBS. Let this be written on each and every of your body-hair and this is a factual declaration I make to you. The Sikh who wishes to have Darshan of Guru, should go and have the darshan of Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji. At Amrit vela after having a bath, three times circumambulate around the All-knowing lord (Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji).

With hands folded respectfully, sit in my presence, pay obeisance to Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji and listen to the divine sermon.

Hearing the Shabad with concentration and with love of Guru Ji, listen and make others to heed to the enlightening Shabad. One who wishes to communicate with me, should read and ponder over Bani of Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji. Those who wish to listen to my sermons, should listen and understand the bani of Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji. DEEM SRI GURU GRANTH SAHIB JI AS MY EMBODIMENT. THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NO DIFFERENCE BETWEEN ME AND SRI GURU GRANTH SAHIB JI."

"Salvation is not achieved by seeing my physical body. Salvation is achieved by acting on my orders."

"The holy book is the home of the Transcendent Lord."

Have faith in 1.

Dont put your feet in two boats, you will surely sink.

A wife with one husband is more secure than a wife with many husbands.

During Guru Arjan Jis time there were two gursikhs by the name of Bhai Phewa Ji and Roop Chand ji. They owned and ran a safe deposit shop. One day a Moghal gave a large purse full of gold coins to them for safe keeping. He was going to Delhi and would collect it on his return. The two Gursikhs kep the purse safely but forgot to make a record of it.

Five years later the Moghal returned for his purse, Bhai Phewa Ji checked his records and of course there was no record. Neither could he remember taking the purse. This caused an argument and they both decided to make a case and bring it forward to the local Nawab.

The Nawab ordered Bhai Phewa and the Moghal to put there hands in a pot of boiling oil. The person who was right would not get his hand scalded.

Bhai Phewa Ji did an ardaas to Sri Guru Arjan Sahib Ji to come to his rescue and promised 5 gold coins and parsad as thanks. The Moghal prayed to his Pirs (Muslim Saints) and promised all the gold coins.

Both then placed there hand into the hot oil and the Moghals hand was scalded whilst nothing happened to Bhai Phewa Jis hand. The Nawab passed judgement that the Moghal was lying.

Bhai Phewa Ji returned to the shop and told Bhai Roop Chand Ji, who decided to look around the shop for the purse and found it.

Being honest Gursikhs, they located the Moghul and returned the purse to him. The Moghul gave 5 gold coins to Bhai Phewa Ji which he promised to guru ji and wished to be taken to Guru ji.

The Moghul asked Guru ji "Why is it that Bhai Phewa Ji, being wrong was proved right and me being right was proved wrong?"

Guru Ji replied " While doing ardaas, Bhai Phewa Ji had his faith in one and only one Guru. However, you had placed your faith on a large number of pirs. Each Pir thinking the other Pir was going to save you, therefore none came to save you."

Similarly when Draupadi was being unclothed, she asked many for help and none came to her aid, until she prayed to Krishan Ji, who immediately came to her rescue.

3 types of disciples

1. They will help physically and financially, but there is no hope of spiritual advancement.

2. They help physically and financially and love talking about waheguru. There is hope for there spiritual advancement.

3. The walk in the will of waheguru and they are aware of the forces of karma. Whatever happens, good or bad they accept as his will and it is sweet to them.

Clean your mind with naam

A rich man came to see Baba Ravidas Ji and said to him "I am a very busy man, I have so many businesses to look after, so many people to see, I can only come and see you when I am free which isnt very often, so please just hurry up and bless me with naam!"

Baba Ravidas said "Ok, I will see what I can do, but first can you get me some milk?"

The richman thought is that it? Of course I can get you some milk I will bring it next time I come to see you, but Im not sure when that will be, because I am a very busy man. Baba Ravidas said "No problem, you just come back with the milk when you have time."

A few weeks later the rich man came back to Baba Ravi Das Ji and he was carrying the biggest, most shiny, clean new bucket filled with beautiful pure milk.

Baba Ravidas had a bucket too, it was in the corner of his house. This bucket was very filthy and old, it had not been washed for a while. Baba Ravidas Ji told the richman to pour the milk in this bucket. The rich man looked at the bucket and said no way, that bucket is really filthy. Baba Ravi Das ji said to the man, "the milk is for me, why are you bothered what you pour it into?"

The rich man replied, "I have brought you milk which is expensive, pure and beautiful, and you want me to pour it into a filthy bucket, the milk will be ruined and become like the bucket."

Baba Ravi Das Ji said "I dont care just pour the milk in the bucket" The rich man said no way. Baba Ravi Das Ji said so theres no way you are going to pour that milk in the bucket? The rich man said no way. Baba Ravi Das ji then said " Well how do you expect me to give you pure beautiful naam, when your mind and body is like my bucket?"

Maya or Naam

Whilst Guru Nanak Dev Ji and Bhai Mardana Ji were on there travels, Bhai Mardana came across a put of gold and silver coins. Bhai Mardana Ji became very happy at the sight of this and started already planning what he would be able to get for the gold and how he would spend it. They had been walking for days and had not had a good nights sleep or a nice hot meal.

However, Guru Nanak Dev Ji told Mardana to leave the gold and silver behind and they went to rest. Bhai Mardana became very sad at this instruction by Guru Nana Dev ji. Whilst resting near a cave which was overlooking the untouched pot of gold, Guru Nana Dev Ji told Bhai Mardana to start doing Kirtan. Bhai Mardana told Guru Ji "I dont feel like singing the Lords praises, my heart is sad, I am a poor man and you have told me to leave that gold behind? That gold which could resolve all my problems? Why cant we take the gold Guru Ji?" Guru Nanak Dev Ji smiled and told Bhai Mardana, "If you want the gold by all means go and take it, but just wait a while and see what happens" Bhai Mardana agreed, whilst they were resting they saw three men walk out of the jungle and stumble across the pot of gold. All three men were friends and became very happy at the sight of the gold and thought they had been blessed. They said to each other we will split this gold three ways and lead a very comfortable life.

The men were hungry and before they shared the gold, one of the friends told the men he would go into the jungle and find some food to eat. So he walked away, whilst the other two waitied for him. As they sat down looking at the gold, one of the friends said to the other "If only me and you had stumbled across this gold? Then we would only have to split it only two ways and we would be even more better off" The other friend agreed and said " I have an idea, lets find a large stick each and when our friend comes back with the food, we will hit him over the head with it and kill him." The other friend agreed and said "Yes, what a good idea, when we get back home, we will tell his family he seperated from us in the jungle!" Both men were in agreement and awaited their friend to come back from the jungle with the food.

The other friend whilst in the jungle, was thinking to himself, if only I had found that gold by myself, then I wouldnt have to share it with them two! I have an idea, I will poison the food that I take back, it will instantly kill them and then I will have all the gold to myself! I will tell there families that I lost them in the jungle! He then found some food and mixed it with the poison and walked back to his friends.

As the friend came back from the jungle and walked towards his other two friends, both men attacked him with the stick killing him on the spot. The men then were about to share the gold, but they were hungry and decided to eat first and then split the gold. As soon as both men took one bite of their food, they died, the poison was so strong! All three men lay dead near the pot of gold.

Guru Nanak Ji looked at Bhai Mardana and said there you go Mardana the gold is all yours for you to take. Bhai Mardana fell at Guru Jis feet and said "I dont want any gold, all I want is naam"

Seeing the Guru

How many butterflies would I have in my stomach when I see you?
How dry would my mouth be when you call out for me?
How fast would my heart beat when I touch your feet?
Would I even blink once when you look at me?
Would I find the right words to speak to you?
How many tears would flow down my face, when you embrace me to your chest?
And what excuse would I make for all those wasted breathes?

The Saints

Thy form is beautiful.
Thy long flowing beard is beautiful, each hair is different yet it comes from the same face.
Your posture and uniform are immaculate.
So many different turbans, yet 1 meaning.
Your words are soft, with a real meaning and hit a cord within the listener.
Your eyes are full of love.
How my heart aches for your company when you are gone!
And when you are with me I am blessed.
Who says we can not see the Gurus!? When I look into your eyes, I see all of them!

How many?

How many eyes must you have to watch over all of us? And yet you never blink once.
How many ears must you have to hear all the praises, the crying, the shouting, the moaning, the singing, the gossipping, yet you never stop listening.
How many tongues must you have to speak to all of your creation? And yet not be affected wether we listen or not!
How many hands must you have to hold everything in place? Yet you never get tired.
How many arms must you have to carry us through life?
How many feet must you have to walk with each and every one of us?
You are so many, but yet you are 1.

The calling...

Its getting louder, day by day.
Its always been there, waiting for a reply.
Somedays you try to block it out and ignore it.
Somedays you want to hear it, but it doesnt speak.
Then one day you hear it and you talk back.
It asks "Who are you?" "Find your true self"
You reply "How?" It dissappears.
You then wait, it may be days before you hear it speak again, and again it calls you.
You fall in love with it, addicted, you will do anything for it to stay and answer your questions.
Then you become content.
No more anxiety, no more loss of patience.
You let it guide you.
You let it protect you and control you.
You carry on on developing yourself spiritually and it will take care of the rest and one day you will be called.

What I want

I do not want a good day at work,
I do not want to be successful in life,
I do not want a peaceful life,
I do not want a long life,
I do not want a nice wife,
I do not want a happy family,
I do not want money, cars or big houses.

All I want is to be worthy enough to see you and this the only thing I will keep asking for. O mind meditate on the name so I become worthy of that day.

The 5 control freaks

They control my actions,
They control my re-actions,
They control what I see,
They control what I say,
They control what I listen to,
They control what I DO!

O True King, Father Guru Gobind Singh JI, help me fight them, control and abolish them, so that the only one that controls me is the one who has made me
