Vaheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Vaheguru Ji Ki Fateh! The topic for this post will be on Amrit Vela, or in English Ambrosial Hours. There are many benefits to waking-up at Amrit Vela, one of them being the fact that in Gurbani it has been called the time to do bhagti: "ਅੰਮ੍ਰਿਤ ਵੇਲਾ ਸਚੁ ਨਾਉ ਵਡਿਆਈ ਵੀਚਾਰੁ ॥ अम्रित वेला सचु नाउ वडिआई वीचारु ॥ Amriṯ velā sacẖ nā▫o vadi▫ā▫ī vīcẖār. In the Amrit Vaylaa, the ambrosial hours before dawn, chant the True Name, and contemplate His Glorious Greatness" (Dhan Dhan Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji Ang 2). With this in mind we should realize that Amritvela means anytime from 12 A.M to 6 A.M, (the universally accepted time is 3 A.M to 6 A.M), and during that time is when many spiritual benefits of Naam Simran, (chanting the Gurmantar: Vaheguru), and as well as any Gurbani to keep your mind on Vaheguru. Slowly, slowly we get into a state of complete thoughts of Vaheguru.
Before that is all possible we should try our best to wake-up early; and chant Vaheguru, there are many techniques and methods which people recommend; but the only thing Daas, (in Gurbani Daas is used for servant, here it is used for me, for those who didn't know); will recommend is that we should ask for Gur-prassad to get us to wake-up early; (even though it is possible to wake-up without asking Guru Sahib with a variety of techniques; all of it falls short to a simple Ardas to Guru Sahib). For anyone who can not wake-up at Amrit Vela; we still recommend you do Naam Simran throughout the day; as well as the evening; (as this also is a time where there is a better chance for concentration). Also remember that at the end of the day; each minute is important and precious.
Daas would like to end with recommending this video from BasicsOfSikhi, (who makes Sikhi videos for people to learn from): on Amrit Vela and what true Amrit Vela is. Vaheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Vaheguru Ji Ki Fateh! (Bhul Chuk Maaf, forgive any mistakes).
