    Amrit Vela, Usefull Tips~~~
     
    Here is something i found that might be usefull for those who have a hard time keeping up with thir amrit vela.

    Forwarding you Tips for Naam Japs sent by a Gurmukh Rooh.I found it useful,someone else may also...

    Waheguru ~~Waheguru
    Jap naam at amrit vela no matter what!!!! Amrit vela is between 12:30 am and sunrise. Please note amrit vela is not effective unless the body is well rested.

    Waheguru ~~Waheguru
    Jap naam at night before sleeping. It is very important to do this.Naam (at first) does the work of a cleanser (then it fills one with bliss). Cleansing the mind is night is extremely important. A clean mind sleeps more deeply and wakes up alert. The precious amrit vela then is more effective, since much of the work has already being done at night and in sleep, since a naam-ed out mind will jap naam during sleep too!

    Waheguru ~~Waheguru
    Try to wake up without alarm. This will only happen via persitant ardas to the guru.

    Waheguru ~~Waheguru
    Try to divide up the day. For example, wake up at amrit vela. Do simran and nitnem and then take a short nap before the day starts. This prevents fatigue during the day. And psychologically a tired body can wake up more easily if it knows it can go back to sleep. The morning nap should not exceed 1.5 hours. If it does, the body thinks it is night time and usually results in dull day.

    Waheguru ~~Waheguru
    Keep some water besides the bed. (This has no spiritual significance, but it saves the trip to the kitchen during the precious amrit vela hours).

    Waheguru ~~Waheguru
    When the body first wakes, *immediately* say "WaheGuru" with tongue or mind - depending on the individual's naam state. Do not wait until ishnan to jap naam. Do not wait to tie loosened dastar or keski or hair before japping naam. Sit up and without even drinking the water besides the bed, jap naam deeply. Only after a few seconds/minutes or hours when the mind is somewhat settled, venture out to do the necessary chores. (The misconception that naam cannot be japped without first doing ishnan is well, just that a mis-conception. Naam *is* ishnan!).

    Waheguru ~~Waheguru
    At first jap naam loudly, then with kripa and practice, the naam can be japped softly or completely internally. The guru usually gives internal instructions or arranges meeting with naami gursikhs at approriate time.

    Waheguru ~~Waheguru
    Divide up naam time. It is extremely hard to sit for 3 hours of naam during early stages, but it is possible to jap naam for 3 hours if it done over breaks. Jap naam before ishnan. Jap naam after ishnan. Jap naam during lunch breaks. Jap naam during traffic jams. Jap naam when driving. Jap naam. Jap naam. Jap naam. Jap naam.

    Waheguru ~~Waheguru
    Mix gurmanter with mool manter.

    Waheguru ~~Waheguru
    If mind has wondered off, bring it back by reciting gurBani. Refrain from gossip and slander. This keeps the mind clean and it can more easily focus on naam. (The most common response to "... do not slander Bhai X jee...." is "... I am not slandering Bhai X jee, I am just telling the truth". A very practical defination of slander is: the things that cannot be said in front of Bhai X jee are slander).For that reason avoid the company of the people,who spent more time in slandering.

    Waheguru ~~Waheguru
    Avoid TV or movies or being a news junkie.

    Just Start Simraning Waheguru ~~Waheguru
    Waheguru ~~Waheguru



    For those of us, who are engaged in MORE IMPORTANT TASKS untill Midnight, Try a few days/weeks by taking Bath and doing Amrit Velaa at midnight itself, before going to Sleep, Just start walking on the path and HE will HELP , for sure !!!

    Jai Sai Ram~~~

    May none suffer from grief or sorrow. May peace be to all~~~

    Waking Up For Amrit Vela
    By G. Udham Singh in Gurmat Sidhaant Saagar


    1. That Sikh who remembers Waheguru at Amrit Vela will achieve liberation.

    2. Ishnan, nitnem and simran/abhyaas at amrit vela can transform the individual.

    3. Only that person can wake up for amrit vela who forsakes laziness and remembers death.

    4. It is just as essential for every Gursikh to wake up in the last quarter of the night, amrit vela, as it is to do simran.

    5. That person that remains asleep at amrit vela goes without the blessings and grace of Waheguru .

    6. The best way of waking up for amrit vela is to eat little at night and to go to sleep on time.

    7. It is at amrit vela that currents of Vahiguru's blessings are flowing but those who remain asleep at this time cannot enjoy them.

    8. Until the stars disappear, it is the fourth quarter of the night, amrit vela,
    which is considered the most conducive time to meditate and worship Waheguru .

    9. That person that longs to wake up at amrit vela will be woken up on
    time by some secret power.

    10. After doing Sohila Sahib, and before going to sleep, doing ardaas for the ability to wake up at amrit vela is very beneficial.

    11. That Gursikh who is thirsting for naam and baaNee will find that this thirst will be like the alarm which wakes him/her up.

    12. Even cows, birds and roosters wake up at amrit vela. If a Sikh does not, it is his own bad karma.

    13. It is a natural phenomenon that at amrit vela, even flowers blossom and spread their scent more than at any other time.

    14. That person who wants to meditate on Waheguru must make it a daily habit to wake up at amrit vela.

    15. It is not enough to just wake up at amrit vela, ishnaan and simran are also essential.

    16. Those individuals who spend their nights lost in vices and evil and then sleep through amrit vela are destroying their own lives.

    17. The way in which our minds can be attached to simran and baaNee at amrit vela is not possible at any other time.

    18. All great saints, rishis, munis, bhagats and Gursikhs all have woken up at amrit vela.

    19. That person's life is fruitful and worthwhile who wakes up every day at amrit vela and remembers Waheguru.


    Jai Sai Ram~~~
