Summary of Question:How To Lead A Truthful Life

Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa, Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh,


Could you please direct me to some kind of meditation where I can be honest with myself about myself? I realize that so many of my interactions are false; I'm simply so intent on pleasing others that I end up living a life of a lie where I am neither honest with my self, and this hinders my spiritual "progress". I don't know what to do. I have the typical Punjabi girl problem of wanting to please others so badly that I don't see how I may be hurting myself in the process. And I know the foundations of such thinking lies in lies, falsehood and the pretense of needing to satisfy others so that I can get some kind of approval. I know this is inherently wrong and I have decided to finally work on forming some kind of discipline so that I can see Guruji's message and Guruji's Truth which is implanted within me. I was hoping you could help me by letting me know which shabad I could meditate on to gain the strength to stop the deception. I really appreciate your help. I hope I don't fall off the path this time because I have so many times before (due to laziness and my mind's stubornness).

thank you.
Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh.

Great request.

The Shabd that will help you is "Bhand jamee-ay bandh nimee-eh, bhand manganaa-vee-aaho". You will find it in the end of Asa Divar.

If you recite this Shabd, either verbalize it 11 times a day, or sing it for 31 minutes, Do this for the next 90 days. Do not miss a day. If you do miss, then start over at day one again until you finish.

Guru promised that the woman who recites or sings this Shabd will have grace. It is a promise. When you recite this Shabd it will stop the indignity and bestow the dignity. It gives you the grace. A woman who sings this shall have a perfect own God's shield around her.

Also, through this Shabd one develops reverence and sacredness in relationships. It takes away mother phobia and anger.

I will give you the English translation, while you can look up the Gurmukhi to recite daily.


Guru Nanak:
"Within a woman man is concieved, within a woman man is born.
With a woman man is engaged and married,

With a woman man enjoys friendship,
through a woman the generations of life continues.

When a man's wife dies, he seeks out another.
To a woman, man is bound.

Why call her bad to whom kings are born?

From a woman a woman is born.
Without a woman, there would be no one.

O Nanak, the only one without a woman
is the One True Lord.

The mouth which ever praises the Lord
is very blessed and beautiful.

O Nanak, their faces will be radiantly bright
in the Court of the True God."

God bless you, SKKK
