Why this Life/Death Cycles goes on?

One of the beauties of Gurbani is: it states the solution in very place wherever it discusses the problem. In above Shabad, the respected Guru Sahib has shown us the way out: it is only thru Naam Simaran one can extinguish desires, there by eradicating the seed of life.
As one does Naam Simaran, one is liberated from humanly emotions and humanly weaknesses, one’s soul is purified and it leads to calming of all desires. Thus this is the path of salvation, eternal peace and tranquility. It starts with doing Naam Simaran of God and last stage is merging of one’s soul with Supreme Soul.

Greatest Gift in life: Self-control of human lust

God gives us so many gifts that even we cannot count. Each gift is unique and valuable in itself. Yet, the gift of wisdom is the most precious as all other gifts become easier once one is blessed with know-how.
Every scripture of the world is stating that having a Guru or Prophet or Religious Preacher is pre-requisite for spirituality. In fact, this principle is true for learning other sciences and arts of life. Spirituality is harder as it is a subtler, invisible, powerful science and the results are not measurable in one's life. Thus choice of the path or following a particular religion is critical.

Sikh scriptures are fresh, intact and recent. The scriptures are in synch with other monotheistic religious scriptures. To be born as a human being is very very precious gift in itself. Then, to be born in a monotheist religion is even more precious. In the hierarchy of growth, Sikhism stands at top of religions.
To be born in a Sikh environment is a blessing in itself. The path is simple, straight and clear.
As the following Shabad states:

Is not time most precious commodity of life?

Only God is perfect in creation. We as humans are bound to make mistakes. It is kind of Burn and Learn rule: we learn our lessons in each life. We keep on advancing to next grade based on how well we performed in life.

Most people live their life in a "Sleep Walking" kind of state. They come to senses at end of life. Some blessed-ones get wisdom from surrounding. When this wisdom about reality of God's existence comes to a person, it is a quantum leap for a human. So far, the human has been sinning and sinning without knowledge. As soon as wisdom lands on the human, a major repentence hits like a earthquake. Many people experience tearing, sadness and deep repentance. It is a sign of a major blessing from God: now human knows what lies ahead. It takes decades or years before sin is conquered. Each time sin occurs in devotee's life, a major struggle happens in the mind, body and soul of the awakened human being. This is internal civil war between evil and good. It goes for decades or even many many lives. Depending on the purity and dedication of the religious Guru and surrounding saints, evantually God's devotee conquers this situation.
As the following Shabad states:


Once Guru has blessed him/her with widom, now the devotee feels absolutely dirty and sinfull. It is not a bad sign, rather it is only indication of a truly saintly life. Higher one's stage is, lesser the is denial of sinful nature. It may be ironc, yet it is true: "true saints claim they are sinners and true sinners think they are saints!!!".

How does Company of Wise people help?

When we say our prayer, God is listening to our prayer. When God wants to talk to us God sends the message thru his Scriptures brought by Prophets.
Scriptures should be read with great love and compassion. The prayerer should feel the dialogue going between him/her and God.

Here is a Shabad, where a devotee expresses his/her desire to meet God. And then God answers that in Gurbani.

What can help to speed up your salvation?

God gives us an opportunity to improve our lot. We are blessed with counted number of breaths. With each breath taken without meditation is wasted. At time of death, the reality of life comes forward, the God's Judgment is executed. The soul is in constant and for eternal grief for wasting away precious time of life. Remember, in such a big creation God has created Spirited people, humans, only on this earth. It is only on earth one can improve one's eternal standing with God. Once we leave earth we stay in the same state till eternity: either in bliss or complete horror: time ceases, change ceases.

The following Shabad states situation at time of death:


God's meditation is possible during human life. Once your spirit leaves the body, spirit being cannot do any actions. The body is immediately becomes alien and distant to all living near and dear-ones. Bhagat Bainee Ji, very humbly reminds the devotees to do Naam Simaran while there is breath in life.

What was the mission of your life?

In our daily life we get many moments that are happy or sad. Yet these moments are transitory, soon the complimentary moment shows up.
We have been living with such changing moments in our life as lower animals too. Even after coming in human life, we do not get that moment. The true moment of celebration is when God blesses the person with right religious Guru and blesses the person with faith in Guru and God. Indeed, such a moment comes after thousands of years.

God has made every part of human body indispensable. Yet, some human body parts can produce eternal bliss. In fact, whenever we are doing meditation, every cell of the body is in link with Almighty. Human tongue is blessed with the duty to help us sing the praises of the God. It produces an eternal link and everlasting tranquility for humans.
Yet, on the contrary, the very tongue can get us in worldly troubles: quarrels, fights, court cases and wars. The biggest type of punishment to humans typically comes thru vulgar and backbiting talks. Next to lust, probably speaking ill of others, is an unpardonable sin according to Sikhism.

The following Shabad blesses us with wisdom:

The tongue is more precious than gems of the world because by using it one sings the praises of God and it helps to communicate and co-ordinate good deeds. When we say prayers, using our tongues, we are helping all our departed family members as well as cleaning our sins of millions of past lives.


The wound of the sword will end with time and this life, yet the wounds of the tongue will stay for ever with the sinner's soul.
