VK TIP 111 : Blessings from Guru Nanak Devji, IK ONKAR SATNAAM KARTA PURAKH


Today on Kartik Poornima, we celebrate GURU NANAK Jayanti or PRAKASH GURPURAB of GURU NANAK DEVji.

:smile: Guru Nanak Devji , the 1st Guru of the 10 Gurus of Sikhism. He is the founder of Sikhism, known since 15th century..

This year 2018, we celebrate his 549th Birth Anniversary.

It is celebrated with PRABHAT PHERI (morning processions) praising the Lord, afternoon LANGAR, serving community lunch, Evening REHRA SAHEB PAATH (praising the Lord) and mid nite celebrations at Gurudwara, at 1.20 am , the birth time of Guru Nanak Devji with slogans and hymns DHAN GURU NANAK, SAARA JAG TAARIYA.

His early life events gives an impression of his Divine Grace and his inclination to Spirituality. His teachings are scripted in Holy Book GURU GRANTH SAHEB ji.

:smile: Guru Nanak Devji teaches that THERE IS ONLY ONE GOD one can connect to God directly without any rituals. He taught that Lords name should be remembered from the heart, which is NAAM SIMRAN. Naam Simran is to repeat the Lords name and remember the attributes of Lord to feel the Divine presence.

He denounced the caste system and taught that everyone is equal, regardless of caste or gender

He also teaches to live life in TRUTH.

All Gurus in Sikhism teach that spiritual life and householder life are intertwined.

:smile: Guru Nanak Devji teaches 3 ways to live life

:heart: VAND CHAKKO : Earn from efforts, Share with community and especially with those in need. It includes sharing of food, kind, wealth. A Sikh should contribute to community a part of his/her earnings.

:heart: KIRAT KARO : Earn honestly and with pure feelings using the abilities, talents, determination blessed by Lord.
Earn with good virtues for self , for family and for the society.

:heart: NAAM JAPO : Remember the Lord's name and his qualities. Continuous remembrance of Lord and his qualities through NAAM SIMRAN connects a person to Divine, purifies the mind and helps to fulfil desires with feelings of Divine Presence in life.

It helps to control the PANJ DOSH/VIKAR ....that is Five Vices ... kama (lust), krodh (rage), lobh (greed), moh (attachment) and ahankar (conceit/ego).

One can chant WAHEGURU or SATNAM WAHEGURU to remember the Lord as formless, the creator of all the forms and the being omnipresent in all forms.

Sikhism teaches to live with FIVE positive human qualities...
SAT (truth),
DAYA (compassion),
SANTOKH (contentment),
NIMRATA (humility), and
PYAAR (love).

:heart: MOOL MANTRA...IK ONGKAR by Guru Nanak Devji

This mantra/bani forms the beginning of the holy book GURU GRANTH SAHEB ji.

It is the essence of Divine.

ੴ : Ik Oankaar
ਸਤਿਨਾਮ: Satinaam
ਕਰਤਾ ਪੁਰਖ: Kartaa Purakh
ਨਿਰਭਉ: Nirbhaou
ਨਿਰਵੈਰੁ: Nirvair(u)
ਅਕਾਲ ਮੂਰਤਿ: Akaal Moorati
ਅਜੂਨੀ: Ajoonee
ਸੈਭੰ: Saibhang
ਗੁਰਪ੍ਰਸਾਦਿ: Gurprasaadi

IK ONGKAR : Baba Nanak ji negated the belief of duality. He taught that Divinity is formless and only 1. Divine is Omnipresent. This oneness is the only truth. Our spiritual enlightenment happens with this oneness.
We also see others as differentiation in caste, creed, religion and gender.

SATINAAM : The name is SAT. Truthful in all ages, past, present and future. Divine knowledge is the truth.

KARTA PURAKH : The creator Doer, who is Omnipresent, Omnipotent and Omniscient.

NIRBHAOU : Devoid of fear. There is no duality in Divine energy, there is no fear.

NIRVAIR : Devoid of hate or enmity or ill-will. The ONENESS and FORMLESS has no enmity or ill-will.

AKAAL MOORATI : Divine is ETERNAL Entity, beyond time, beyond change, beyond space, no life no death, no shape, no form.
Supreme Absolute reality, no beginning, no end, IMMORTAL and FOREVER

AJOONEE : Beyond Birth, Does not take birth, Free from Birth and Death.

SAIBHANG : Powerful. Can Create and Destroy. Everything is Possible for Divine.

GURPRASADI : GUR is knowledge, Prasadi is Grace. This ONENESS with ONE TRUTH is realised with Spiritual Wisdom and Knowledge from Divine himself.

It is a blessing to receive this teaching from Guru Nanak Devji. One can start every morning with this MOOL MANTRA given by BABA ji.

Gratitude to ALL TEN SIKH GURUs teaching us ways of life.

It is best to chant SATNAM WAHEGURU and IK ONKAR MANTRA as much as possible, to connect with Divine.
This Divinity takes us closer to Divine. Life journey becomes more peaceful with strength to face every situation with a smile. It helps to fulfil the purpose of life..

With VK one can chant these and request VK to keep one connected to the teachings of Babaji in practise and to Divinity.

Gratitude to @SharatSir for bringing us close to Divinity with Divine VK, another blessing and gift in our lives.

May BABA ji bless all with DIVINE CONNECTION and awareness to follow his teachings.
