We have close relationships, work relationships, school relationships and even mates that stick with us through our entire lifetime.

Volume 4 - Meditation

In life, meditation is essential. Without it our mind becomes our master and we live miserably. Just as we wash our body and brush our teeth so we can be clean and sweet-smelling, just so, our mind must also be cleaned. When the mind is dirty - filled with negative thoughts and fantasies, then we live in a constant state of unhappiness and people do not want to be near us. These talks give a basic set of simple tools based on Gurbani so that we can clean our minds daily to live happily, positively and carefree.

Comments from SikhNet viewers regarding these videos:
    "(The) Sikhnet videos... are really amazing. As a sikh from the uk my grasp of Punjabi is not very good and have struggled to understand some bhachans i have heard before in punjabi. By posting these videos in english you have made my religion more accessible to me and these videos are truly a gift. I really do wish to thank you for your seva and may you and everybody at Sikhnet be bestowed with all of gods graces." - Singh from U.K.

    "I like your videos very much. These are very inspiring to me. I was a person who always saw God's love very closely. However, in the last 6-7 years I lost myself in Maya and suffered a lot. With Guru's grace, I'm back on the right path. I always take out some time daily to listen to your any video. I don't feel alone anymore. I really appreciate the way in which you are serving to humanity. It's like online satsangat." - Kaur from Australia

I'm so proud to be a sikh, and I hope I can be a better sikh from now on. I've decieded to pray everyday and follow my religion as closely as possible." - Punarpreet Singh

    "I have been watching your videos for the last 4-5 days and I am crying because I was going in the different path. I am so much inspired. It touched my heart and I cried cried so much today. Oh Waheguru please give me blessing so I will follow my Sikhi from my true heart." - Daljeet Gill
