..Bliss Continues….

Imagine a situation,
Where Most of your wishes have not been met yet….
Where time is just passing by……..
Where with passing time u r becoming impatient…
Where ur selfishness, jealousy and hatred has not ended…..
Where your worldly entanglements have grown only……
Where u are tired of trying to improve here & there & everywhere……

And then… suddenly …. it strikes you….a transparent yet white blanket … a thin layer has descended from sky and engulfed u…..U r in Bliss…..and then you realise the power of GOD…..
Each and every word of Gurbani starts becoming meaningful …
and you start singing
‘mere hirdae sudh budh visar gayi mann asa chint visarya’
‘Gur Sundar mohan paye kare har prem bani mann mareia’

WOW! what a feeling…. what an experience…..U wonder if the trailor is so good, what the movie would be… and U long to see the movie…. and start praying for that…..

And then you wonder ….(yet again)…. why you …..? U go back to your past and try to figure out if you have done any good ever… and you donot find anything……Rather u look at all the bad things u have done in ur life. why you….. and this question remains unanswered ….beyond ur logic.

And then it dawns upon you –
That the lord is Too vast and big for our small mind to understand…. He is simply beyond our comprehension. Perhaps.. He doesnot want us to know him in totality. So u let HIM BE. and U donot want to know why how when…. etc. There is no need. Its futile….
‘Vel na payia panditi je hove lekh puran vakht na payio kadia je likhan lekh kuran’

And then …. you r filled with ecstacy and Gratitude. U start thinking about His Creation … how wonderfully he has created everything….everything is so perfect…. U think of paying back…. and then u laugh at ur foolish thought… for you know that if He is the giver, then the reciever too is HIM. How can one pay back to himself? U realise how subtly he exists in everything. And how beautifully MAya hides him from us. He is there in front of us and yet we cannot see him. And then u find urself reciting
‘Jal thal mahiyal Guptu vartai, Gur shabdi dekh Nihari jeeo’

And then u know that how Ur Guru(shabad guru) has blessed you…with this wisdom… U recollect how u were guided to the Company of Sangat, and Shabad Kirtan… how u starting comptemplating on Gurbani…. and u know that u would never have made such a decision…on ur own….

And then u feel like sharing this with others…. so u start writing…. And suddenly u realise that U may be thinking too much of urself ( half empty vessel makes lot of noise ) …. and ur ego may be going very high…. So u ask for forgiveness from the reader, and the Guru and hence the LORD for having said, thought or written anything wrong or twisted or out of ego…..

And then u wish to end this note…again with a prayer that this state of BLISS Continues…. forever…. and may others taste it too….

Karma & Guru

Dear Reader,
What is written below are thoughts of a logical, egoistic, selfish and stupid mind. Please excuse if there’s something wrong and unwanted.

Everything we get in our life is as per our past Karma. Whether we like
it or not, accept it or not this is the truth.

Only thing thats in our hands is our response. We can crib, cry, feel
lonely, pity, angry, bad or whatever … its upto us. It will not change fruits
of our karmas.

It may however worsen the effect.

There are threevways to come out of the effect of our karmas

1- Hukam Rajai chalna Nanak Likhya naal. By simply accepting the fruit
as sweet and enjoying. Once we accept this we will feel peace. If Karma
philosophy is true for me, then so it is ….for others. We will stop feeling
pity for ourselves or blaming others and criticizing others

2- By HIS Grace. Again that’s beyond our comprehension. That can happen
as and when He wishes. If He doesnot ever.. its upto Him

3- We follow the Guru and as a result become aware of the entire
Creation (and much more). In such a case, karmas simply lose their relevance.
Those who reached this stage accepted being cut into pieces or being bricked in
a wall without even uttering a word.

Sri Guru Granth sahib ji is the complete Guru. Once you completely and truthfully
surrender urself and agree to follow what Guru is telling you, things will
change and you will be guided. You will be simply amazed…..

Only thing is that the results will be directly proportional to your truthfulness in following the teachings.

Gurbani & Prayer

A verse from SGGS can have different meaning for different people. We live, feel good, contented by mere recital of bani. That is at our worldly level, of five senses. Nothing wrong in that…. If by any chance or His Grace we go beyond this…. and ponder on the meaning of Gurbani… it will be really great. It will be beginning of a great journey in our life.. A learned (& shall i say awakened) soul once told me that God lives in the spaces between the words in SGGS. We go so fast that we often miss HIM and hardly pause for HIM.

‘Satgur nu sab ko vekhda jeta jagat sansar, diththe mukt na hovei jicher shabad na kare vichar’ (the entire world looks towards the true guru, One is not liberated by merely looking towards the guru, but by contemplating on Guru’s Word)

There are hundreds of such metaphors, examples and comparisons just to jolt our logical mind. That is the only purpose of such examples…. to make us understand the true meaning of Gurbani.. for Bani has come from Dhur (dhur ki bani ayee) and is based on totally different plane. We have to raise ourselves to that level to understand the true meanings/treasures hidden in Gurbani.

If we donot do so, our life will be sheer waste…..and if that happens, nothing can be more tragic.

To raise ourselves to that level is the tougher than anything ..given the worldly attachments and attractions (varied roops of maya). They r so beautiful and so real…. its difficult to break them.

Gurbani gives us the gur (formula) to break out of them ie if we follow what our Guru is telling us rather than merely repeating the verses. Guruji doesnot want us to be a scholar/pundit of SGGS. We should try to focus on the what is being said and try to follow it in our life. ( Do u think a father will be more pleased with his son who obeys and follows his instructions than the one who keeps repeating his instructions and never follows them).

If we cannot do this too….. then

We should daily pray to GOD that pleasssssssse bless us so that we can understand the true meaning of Gurbani – the intent with which All Gurus wrote it, the meaning which our Gurus wanted us to understand and live our lives accordingly.

I am in bliss.. thanks to Guru and God.
Not that all my desires have been met… This is HIS grace.. for when he wants to bless someone with bliss and ecstacy he can do so any time in any situation.
We cannot understand this with our logical mind, Only when we are in such a situation ourselves can we understand what i am trying to say.Its like goonge ki mithiayee.
All my desires and grievances are still there,but they have been pushed to some remote corner of my mind and i have been taken over by a blissful state. Jan nanak mushk chakoleya as if i have been sprayed with a scent of peace, bliss and calmness.
Suddenly Gurbani has come true. The state and feelings conveyed by Gurbani are becming somewhat clear to me.
I donot understand so many things but then whats the need to…..

I fail to understand what good have i done to be blessed like this. I cannot recall any… yes i have done millions of wrongs … and still GOD has blessed me wth this. I dnot know whom to thank and how to thank. If He can do this to a 3rd class person like me,… then HE is truely marvellous

I know soon i will be lost in worldly things…taken over by jealousy, nindia, hatred, attachment, expectations, desires and all the filth. How much do I wish that this state lasts for ever in my life…. Any ways i am enjoying till it lasts with hope that it will come back soon…..
