Dasam Duar

According to Sikhism the Tenth Gate can only be opened by the Guru's
grace and is vital for Self-realization and enlightenment.

The energy channels of the Ida, Pingala and Shushmanaa:
These three dwell in one place.
This is the true place of confluence of the three sacred rivers:
This is where my mind takes its cleansing bath.
O Saints, the Immaculate Lord dwells there;
How rare are those who go to the Guru, and understand this.
The all-pervading immaculate Lord is there.
What is the insignia of the Divine Lord's dwelling?
The unstruck sound current of the Shabad vibrates there.
There is no moon or sun, no air or water there.
The Gurmukh becomes aware, and knows the Teachings.
Spiritual wisdom wells up, and evil-mindedness departs;
The nucleus of the mind sky is drenched with Ambrosial Nectar.
One who knows the secret of this device, meets the Supreme Divine
The Tenth Gate is the home of the inaccessible, infinite Supreme
Above the store is a niche, and within this niche is the commodity.

Raam Kalee, The Word of Baynee Jee, Adi Granth, p. 974.

Please read deailed explaintion about Dasam Duar in Bhai Sahib Randheer Singh's book "Anhad Shabad Dasam Duar"
Some Excerpts from this book:

There are two types of liberation. The first one liberates from rebirth cycle of transmigration and attained by envisioning The Effulgence of soul being. The second liberation is riddance of the invisible and causative bodies, on envisioning The Full Glory of The Supreme Soul.

Soul being is revealed when mind becomes motionless and breath is stopped, while Supreme Soul revelation is on the opening of the Dasam Duar.

To clarify further, it is brought out that Guru Nanak was not merely a son to Mehta Kalyan Das and an ordinary person. No common person becomes immortal whereas He is described thus in Revealed Gurbani:

The invisible and causative bodies are rid of on envisioning The Supreme Being when The Dasam Duar is opened. The strong Door opens with the key of Gur Shabad, 'Waheguru', Naam. Naam is available with Satguru, Guru Nanak, The Manifested Form of The Supreme Being.

You are The Satguru for all The Four Ages, Yourself as 'Parmesar', The Supreme Being. [1406]

The above quote clearly emphasizes that Guru Nanak is Satguru for all times to come from the very beginning and He is The Manifested Spirit of The Supreme Being, playing the role of Satguru at all different worlds. It is a serious lapse to think of The Supreme Redeemer, Satguru Nanak Dev Ji, as limited to a small Nation of Sikhs instead of belonging to the entire mankind now and forever!

Coming back to Naam Key, bestowed by Satguru, Guru Nanak Dev Ji. Even though He is not in our midst as a body, He enshrined His Spirit in Gurbani of Sri Guru Granth Sahib before leaving. Now His Spirit in the Presence of , through the medium of Five Beloved Ones, bestows Gur-Shabad, Naam, on the spiritual seekers. This process shall continue forever blessing all the deserving persons of this world.

In confirmation of the truth that before coming to this world, Satguru Nanak Dev Ji was engaged in the work of redeeming persons on other worlds, we have the witness of the son of Pir Gulam Dastgir. He was taken by Guru Nanak Dev Ji for a visit to countless Galaxies and underworlds. Our scientists have still to discover a planet that is inhabited by human population.

This leads us to conclude that all persons desirous of their redemption should present themselves before The Five Beloved Ones in thePresence of Sri Guru Granth Sahib, to get bestowed with Gur- Shabad, Naam. Thereafter, ceaseless devotion to the practice of Naam is efficacious in the opening of Dasam Duar.

Tell me what god feels like?

Soon after her brother was born, little Sachi began to ask her parents to leave her alone with the new baby. They worried that like most four year olds, she might feel jealous and want to hit or shake him, so they said "NO." But she showed no signs of jealousy. She treated the baby with kindness and her pleas to be left alone with him became more urgent. They decided to allow it.

Elated, she went into the baby's toom and shut the door, but it opened a crack - enough for her curious parents to peek and listen. They saw little Sachi walk quietly up to her baby brother, put her face close to his and say quietly, "Baby, tell me what god feels like? I'm starting to forget."

This made me think, I found this particularly interesting as it comes into line with gurmat. In gurmat we hear again and again that before we came o be born as humans we where with Akal Purkh (god) and we came here with the purpose to jap naam. Elder Gursikhs often explain that when a child is born it cries very loudly from the shock of birth and being bought into this life. Before birth it is connected with vaheguroo jaaping naam constantly but when it is born that connection is broken. As we go through life our dasam duar (tenth Gate) closes up with maya as we grow in kaljug and pollute out spirituality with 5 thieves.

Through naam jaap swaas swaaas can we create him connection once again. :)

The Rose Bed

The Rose Bed

There was a servant whose master was a prince. The prince would take his servant with him to a place where he used to rest. This place was a beautiful garden that had a wonderful smell. In this garden there was a bed of roses. The prince used to come to this garden to sleep on this bed of roses and he used to feel so happy!! He would ask his servant to watch over him and wake him when an hour had passed. The servant used to do this everyday and upon waking the prince would go for a walk on his own.

One day after the servant had woken the prince, the prince went for his usual walk. The servant thought to himself "I wonder what kind of bliss the prince attains from resting on this beautiful bed of roses?" Upon contemplating on this thought he decided that he would also try and rest upon this bed of roses. And so he did...but in doing so he forgot that there was nobody to wake him up...

He fell asleep on the rose bed. Meanwhile, the prince returned from his walk and saw the servant asleep on the rose bed!! He ran over to the servant and kicked him as hard as he could. The servant awoke startled!! The prince was overcome with anger and started to beat the servant. The servant begged for mercy, but the prince would not stop. The servant was screaming with pain, but still the prince did not stop. The prince beat him so badly that his bones were visible through his ripped skin. The prince continued beating him, then, the servant began laughing out aloud...

The prince stopped and was amazed that the servant was laughing, he couldn't believe his eyes. He said to the servant "I have beaten you senseless yet still you laugh, tell me why!" The servant replied "Oh master, you have punished me so severely for sleeping on this bed of roses for this past hour, the reason I laugh is if my punishment is this, then what will yours be as you have been sleeping on this bed of roses all your life!!!"

The prince was overcome with guilt, he realised that he had been wasting his life while the servant was the one who was really the master, because of the service he had been providing all this time!!

Southall Station! Wow I recognise sign! it doesnt seem to have changed much!

"this was southall, little over 30 years ago, when the first Sikhs came from east africa. in late 60's to early 70's, west london had a difference face altogether. they brought with them their colourful and lively culture which has transformed society today."
