Benthee

Waheguru Jee Kaa Khaalsa Waheguru Jee Kee Fatehh

I have a request for all the Sangat everywhere - but as I doubt the entire world reads my blog, my readers will suffice. The power of a single prayer is so amazing.

I beg of everyone who reads this to do a Chaupaee Saahib da Paath. Just one. For who?

For the world. For the universe. For all God's children, all His Creation.

I beg of you, please, if you do not have it memorized, sit down with a Gutkaa, and do it. If you are not a Sikh, yet you can - do it. If you can't, say a simple prayer, anything.

We spread the word to others, and ask people to do a Chaupaee Saahib da Paath for someone who is sick, or someone who is dying, perhaps someone who needs to pass their finals?

But for the very first time in my life I did a Chaupaee Saahib da Paath for someone.. and I did it, and I couldn't stop. That's my favorite BaaNee I think? But I just kept going and going and going.. I don't approve of sitting down and praying when you need something, but.. well, there must be something to it, if so many Gursikhs out there, a trillion times better than me, can make a similar request.

But I beg of you Sangat Jee, please.. not just for our Panth, not just for humanity, for everything.

Please.

Please teach me, Lord ...
I want to know
Exactly how to pray.

I need some words
Which ones are right?
Please tell me what to say.

I've bowed my head
I have knelt down,But ...
should I be upright?

I've closed my eyes,
I've raised my hands,Or ...
should I fold them tight?

Do I stand up?
Should I sit down?
Dear Lord ... what do you like?

Are lights turned on
Or are they off?Maybe ...
candle light?
Wear my glasses?

Take them off?
Be at my desk or table?
Should I whisper?
Speak out loud?

Do I quote the holy books?
What do you think about the time?
Do You prefer the dawn?

Should I pray fast,
Or keep it slow?
Better short ... or long?

I'm new at this
What are the rules?
I want to do it right.

How do I know
You'll even hear
That I am in Your sight?

And while I sat there quietly,
Waiting for some sign,
I heard a gentle voice say,

"Oh, dearest child of mine ...
Do you think I really care
About the time of day,
Or whether you are standing up,
Or kneeling when you pray?"

"I don't care about your posture,
Or about the place you choose;
Just open up your soul to me,
I have no other rules.

Tell me what is in your heart,
And tell me what you seek;
Tell me of your sorrows,
And of those things that made you weak."

"Speak to me in private
About what concerns you most;
I know about your good deeds ...
You have no need to boast.

My child, you don't need lessons,
Just talk to me each day;
Tell me anything you want, dear child,
Anyone can pray."
