Shaheed Singhs

As per request from a Gursikh, Daas will write a *very* short and brief post regarding Shaheed Singhs.

Shaheed Singhs have been with us since our very first incarnation and are there to help us. We can see Shaheed Singhs and all other spirits through our third eye, in Sikhi it is known as Dib Drisht or Div Drisht.

Satgur Mileeai Ta Dib Drisht Hoe
At the Gurdwara Sahib, Shaheed Singhs guard the Siri Nishaan Sahib. Because the Nishaan Sahib is very sacred, it is the emblem of the Khalsa - The Nishaan Sahib was put up with great struggle and many Shaheedeea. The Shaheed Singhs also guard Guru Jees Paalkee Sahib in the Darbaar Sahib, and make sure no one is doing sevaa incorrect. The Shaheed Singhs do Chaur Sahib if no one is present doing it.
Depending on the Naam Kamaaee a person has, you have many Shaheed Singhs with you, and they will most certainly make themselves visible if needed. There are many Saakhees that Daas knows are real about Shaheed Singhs, but Daas will write one short one out for the interest of the Sangat:
As you know many people take a group of people to Siri Hemkunt Sahib, once a Bazurag Bibi happened to get seriously lost (scary!). A person that looked like a Nihang Singh suddenly appeared out of no where and lifted the Bibi up and took her to her group - like he appeared, he dissapeared out of the blue.
Shaheed Singhs wear Damalai and Blue Baanaa, decked with many Shastar. They are pure spirits and will not tolerate any beadbi, of course they are Naam Rasseeai!

Khalsa Camp (UK)

After reading over the internet at how everyone was amazed by Khalsa Camp, it shows we are one step closer to become Naam Abhiyaasee Gursikhs.

Everything is in the hands of the Youth. The more Abhiyaas that is done earlier in life, the better off you will be later on. It is my Behntee to all Sikh youth across the globe to start doing Naam Abhiyaas NOW! - dont let one second pass.

Changhe Rahoo(n) ge je Naam Japoo ge!

Laughing, Playing...

Hasandiaa, Khelandiaa, Pehnandiaa, Khaavandiaa vichai hovai mukht||

Laughing, Playing, Dressing and eating they are liberated.

There is a difference between people who are Naam Abhiyaasees and people who are Naam Rasseeyai. Gursikhs who are Naam Abhiyaas are the people that just practtise and practise and keep their head down all the time getting on with their own thing. The sort of people that never talk with anyone.

Now a Gursikh who is Naam Rasseeyaa can do anything and Jap Naam at the same time. Just like the Panktee above - Laughing, Playing, Dressing and eating they are liberated. Naam Rasseeyai Gursikhs can have a laugh with anyone, play with anyone and have fun and at the same time they are liberated through the Naam.

You will know who is Naam Abhiyaasee because they will hardly talk and mostly have their head down getting on with Naam Abhiyaas.

Whereas a Naam Raseeyaa Gursikh will always have a slight smile on his face, and a smile in his eyes. He will socialise with everyone and have a laugh.

A Random Story

Daas remembers a funny story. When at school, Daas started listening to some Keertan with the headphones and fell into a state of pure Prem Ras on the spot. HeHe! There was a lot of people in the room at the time, and Daas was just sitting there glued to the Keertan, almost in Samaadhee!!

har praem baanee man maariaa aneeaalae aneeaa raam raajae
The Bani of the Lord's Love is the pointed arrow, which has pierced my mind, O Lord King.

After I got up I didn't know where I was, and I wasn't walking in a straight line. Much like a drunk man. Drunk on Naam.

Later on, when I some how managed to walk into a lesson, I came to full conciouness and the Singh sitting next to me gave me a weird look and I couldn't help but smile back in return. HeHe! Thats just a random story that I remembered out of the blue.

Concentration on Naam

A Gursikh has requested this Daas to write on how to concentrate for long periods on Naam.

A common 'problem' that many Gursikhs have talked to Daas about is having headaches when they do Simran or when they stop. Daas would just like to say that this is completely normal - It is infact your Dhiaan (Concentration) growing and shows that you are doing Abhiyaas correctly. However, on the other hand you can get headaches if you are trying too hard. Some people do Abhiyaas for an experience, some Jap Guroo Guroo very fast. Take it nice and easy, one step at a time. Take your time whilst doing Abhiyaas and you will surely feel the Naam Ras.

Now back to concentration. Whilst doing Swaas Swaas Simran concentrate on the Dhun of VAHEGURU in your mind and contemplate the Dhun. The contemplation is one the most important things in developing concentration of the mind. Without contemplation, it is just meditation like what the Budh do.

When we start contemplating we stop thinking about our surroundings and our mind comes to abide in Sehaj Avasthaa. Then we start doing Simran with 'Ik Man Ik Chit' and it is peace all around.

All Daas can really say is keep doing Simran and concenration will come slowly. Practise makes Perfect. Daas has only written abit on this, it is hard. It would be much easier to explain in person.

Bhai Fauja Singh

Daas thought it would be a good idea to inform the Sangat of this site :

It is all about Bhai Fauja Singh Ji, who was Shaheed in 1978. Bhai Fauja Singh is one of Daas' heroes. He is one of the perfect examples of a Gurmukh, he had the Sant and the Sipaahee side to him. You can see it in his letters, and it shines out in his pictures. The Naam just shines through his eyes (There is a saying - the eyes are the windows to the Soul) - Look :
