The Biggest Mistake in Life

Here is a great lecture which is in continuation with yesterday’s blog post about developing an inner connection with yourself and relationship with your soul. It’s always hard to pin down a single title or topic to theses lectures since most of them he covers so many different topics. Anyway, listen and see for yourself :)

This Gurdwara lecture is from July 17th 1988 by Siri Singh Sahib Bhai Sahib Harbhajan Singh Khalsa

What me Worry? - Video by Guruka Singh

Why do we worry about things? Why do we spend so much energy thinking about what could happen? In this video Guruka Singh shares his thoughts on the topic of "worrying". I hope you take the time to think about it after you watch it. Then, start to be more conscious of how you are thinking in the coming days….and when you start to worry try changing your thoughts.

Stories from the Life of Guru Gobind Singh ji

Tonight I would like to share with you a video telling various stories from the Life of Guru Gobind Singh ji. This audio/slideshow was put together by Shanti Kaur here in Espanola, NM. for the Jaap Sahib Camp. There are quite a few interesting stories so set aside some time and watch or listen to them. Do you have kids? Why not have them join you!


Bana and Identity as a Sikh

Today in Gurdwara we heard the following talk by Siri Singh Sahib which was originally from October 2nd 1988. As most of his lectures are, it was quite inspiring and really made me think about the different things that he spoke about. Much of the talk was about Bana and our identity as Sikhs. How bana is there to make us clearly identifiable and stand out. Have a listen to it below or download it for later....


Snatam Kaur Kirtan from Gurdwara

Today at Gurdwara Snatam Kaur and Jatha played some beautiful Kirtan. I was "blissed out" as the whole sangat sang along with this Shabad. She definitely has the gift of a beautiful voice and the ability to sing from the heart. This is the kind of thing that is hard to capture in an audio file. It's one of those "you had to be there" moments being in the presence of Siri Guru Granth Sahib and having the whole sangat singing Gurbani together.

Stories about Yogi Bhajan, Using Occult Powers and the Sikh Gurus

Every 6th of the month evening Gurdwara Shanti Kaur Khalsa tells a story to the Sangat. Normally it is a story from the time of the Gurus. Tonight she shared a story about an important aspect of the Siri Singh Sahib’s life - his decision to renounce his occult powers and grasp hold of the feet of Guru Ram Das. What are Tattva Sidhis? Where do they come from, and what place do they have in our world? Why were the Sikh Guru’s against occult powers, and why did the Siri Singh Sahib renounce them, and if all this is true, why then do we call Guru Ram Das the "Lord of Miracles". This was the single most important decision in the life of this great man, and his seva in the west came as a result.

So set aside 20 minutes and have a listen to Shanti Kaur telling the very interesting stories along with hearing the other audio from the Gurdwara tonight….

Being in the Court of Guru Gobind Singh ji

 During the Jaap Sahib course back in June we heard a very interesting recording of the Siri Singh Sahib ji describing the difference features of Guru Gobind Singh.

The question that was asked was: "Can you please describe what it would have been like be in the court of Guru Gobind Singh when he was alive...."

This recording is an excerpt from a Question and Answer session at Khalsa Woman's Training Camp (July 14th 1981).

Snatam Kaur - Paramayswara

I have been going through some of the video tapes that I recorded from the Jaap Sahib Course which was back in June and found this beautiful video clip of Snatam Kaur. She always has a way of singing from the heart which moves me when I listen to it. The mantra she sings (Aad, Puran, Mudh Puran, Ant Puran, Paramayswara) in this video is in her new CD Album which came out last month.
