Sleep always in the lap of the Beloved Satguru. Rest as the ray rests in
the Sun. Remember God with love by reciting His Divine Name while
going to sleep and as you get up hold fast again His Lotus Feet and recite
His Divine Name. Remember God when you go to sleep and remember
God when you get up.
lways Behold the Divine Satguru.
Concentrate, train, regulate your eyes on the Beloved Satguru till you
start beholding that Divine form in your heart and in every one, every
where. Always beholding the Divine Guru, the eyes become divine and then
start beholding the Divine in every one, every where. Perception, internal
and external, becomes wholesale divine. Mind and body are then devoted
wholesale in loving meditation and service of the Beloved Guru.
Sing and recite the Glory of God and the Divine Name. Participation in
holy Kirtan and repetition of the Divine Name intensifies the Divine fervour.
Hear the Holy Gurbani and Kirtan. Hear the Divine Music and the Divine
Melody of Sacred Hymns.
Take and taste that food and water which has been offered to the Beloved
Satguru first and has been sanctified. This is called Viveki Parshad.
One cultivates Devotion, Prema, faith by eating only that food which has
been offered to Satguru first. This Holy Parshad purifies the mind and
sanctifies the whole being, it enlightens the inner being.
Sleep always in the lap of the Beloved Satguru. Rest as the ray rests
in the Sun. Remember God with love by reciting His Divine Name while going
to sleep and as you get up hold fast again His Lotus Feet and recite His
Divine Name. Remember God when you go to sleep and remember God when you
get up. It sanctifies the whole sleep. Rest and sleep as the ray rests
in the Sun, as the drop rests in the ocean. Rest as a devoted child in
the Divine Lap of the Beloved Guru. Never forget to remember the Satguru
while going to sleep and when rising from sleep.
While taking bath, take a dip in Sacred Amrit Sarovar, in the Charan-Amrit
of the Beloved Guru with your mind established in the Divine.
Thus utilize all the senses and the body in loving remembrance and true
service of the Beloved Satguru.
Body should be kept constantly engaged in the service of Sri Guru Granth
Sahib and in journeying to pay homage at shrines of God.
Such blessed Gurmukhs see, hear, speak, eat, drink, sleep, serve and live,
all in Guru Consciousness. What a blessed state. They consciously live
in the Divine as they have taken a deep plunge into the Divine. A true
sikh lives every breath of his life in Guru consciousness.
This is the way to offer one-self
unto the Guru, the body, the mind, the possessions and live in conscious
obedience to His Will.
In indiscreet and excessive
talking one may commit many sins, consciously or unconsciously. One may
indulge in lies and backbiting. Useless and irrelevant talk may result
in wastage of most precious breaths. Talk as little as possible. It is
only in excessive talking that one enters into slanderous talk and may
injure other's feeling.
Observance of discreet silence is highly rewarding in spiritual progress.
A mind reduced to silence gets easily absorbed in God.
