We continue the celebration of Guru Gobind Singh’s birthday, by gathering in sangat to recite the Jaap Sahib. Arrive by 10:30am if you want to practice our 40 day clearing karma meditation together with the sound current of Chandi Di Vaar.
Yogi Bhajan on Jaap Sahib
"Mimic this Jaap Sahib. You are not mimicking the words, you are re-creating the creative essence of the word, the naad. This is a powerful way that you can learn about sensitivity. If you can practice this meditatively, then whatever people say, you will always compute what people mean. It will give you a totally different dimension. It will take away unawareness, foolishness and nonsense. What a person is saying and what he actually means are two different dimensions. And that is what I want you to experience.”
"Jaap Sahib is Guru Gobind Singh's bani. Guru Gobind Singh became one with God and recited Jaap Sahib. You have to understand: the Sikhs of Guru Gobind Singh were in a position to run at the speed of a horse. What was the miracle that gave them such power? Jaap Sahib.”
“Jaap Sahib gives you the strength of mind behind every muscle of you. And if we have to face challenge or change, take the Name of God everywhere, with every breath. This is how we can do it. That is the way to be spiritual. Everything you do should be right from your spirit, and your spirit should be in it. That's the way you can succeed. Nothing else will work it out.”
