Sikhi Game of love ❤️- ARDAAS - prayer
ARDAAS - prayer
A prayer that is recited by Gursikhs at-least 3 times a day. There is a formal way of doing Ardaas, which is standing up with folded hands. This is usually done after Nitnem (prayers). However, we are not just set to one way of doing Ardaas. As long as the mind is set in the right place and the prayer is said from the heart, it will be heard in Sach Khand (the realm of truth). Our prayers are usually not heard, (in most cases) because our concentration wavers and it is not said whole-heartedly or we are still found desiring whilst making the prayer. When doing Ardaas, straight after Abhiyaas (meditation) or Nitnem, our surtee (conscious state) should be very high and focussed, thus we come to do a whole hearted prayer.
Ardaas is something we humbly do before our master so that he may grant us what we wish for. Therefore, it should be done everyday to keep us spiritually humble. If we don't do Ardaas, ego very easily creeps in, because ardaas is also a way of thanking God for the little or many spiritual and physical gains he blesses us with. Ardaas will help us progress spiritually. It keeps us neech (lowly) but also gives us confidence in everything that we do. Knowing we will do it successfully with the hand of Vaheguroo (God) protecting and forever blessing us.
Everytime you achieve something, whether it be at school, university, work or whilst doing Naam Abhiyaas, always do an Ardaas thanking God. You will realise that the blessings increase ten-fold and you obtain more Phal (fruit) from your Simran (meditation) and Sevaa (service). "Whatever I ask for from my Lord and Master, he gives that to me."Guru ArjunDev Ji
Happiness comes in moments.
It's fleeting, so you've gotta grab it while it's there. You must be present to notice it, listen attentively, & stand up close. And for each moment of happiness that you witness and experience fully and show gratitude for, you can add it to your bank of joy.
Joy is the river residing beneath it all, ever present and in reach - should we be brave enough to nurture and care for it. 🌿🙏💖🌟💕
