Meditate, Remember, Repeat
Excerpt from Siri Singh Sahib Ji Lecture, “Meditation – The Way to God”, March 4, 1979
“….And then, the most beautiful part, the part of all parts. There is a decree, a Hukam: Jap (meditate). If it is a Guru, then Guru must give a Gurmantra. Guru must give the direction, this is the faculty of the Guru. Instruction must be complete. Whereas the Guru explained the faculty of the human being in the image of God, Guru gives the faculty of the human being in the purity of the Khalsa. Then he gives the orders, too: Jap (meditate).
Aad sach, Jugaad sach, Haibee sach, Nanak hose bhee sach
You should meditate on, “Truth is, Truth was before time, Truth is now, and Nanak, Truth shall ever be.”
And there’s nothing to be confused about except rituals, non-experience.
Guru Nanak understood this basic psychology of the human being. And so he gives this command in the Mool Mantra. Repeat. Remember. Meditate upon it over and over and over and over again – so that you can identify it. So that you can learn the truth of it, and see it for yourself. Ultimately, the Guru can only point us in a good direction. It is up to us to do the work. And for the Sikh, Jap is the work.”
