Vaheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Vaheguru Ji Ki Fateh! Once we acknowledge that the main purpose of life is to merge with Vaheguru; we find ourselves wondering, "How should we merge with Vaheguru?" The answer became ever so simple; and that answer was Naam, (we haven't went over a Naam topic; however, that is the answer to merge with Vaheguru). Next is where will we get the Naam, and that is from the Punj Pyare; in the form of the Gurmantar and the Mool Mantar. So Daas will try the best possible to explain the importance of Amrit Sanchar in this topic.
Whenever a disciple desires to serve the solution has always been to serve with your life, "ਸਲੋਕ ਮਃ ੫ ॥Salok Ma 5 ||ਪਹਿਲਾ ਮਰਣੁ ਕਬੂਲਿ ਜੀਵਣ ਕੀ ਛਡਿ ਆਸ ॥Pehilaa Maran Kabool Jeevan Kee Shhadd Aas ||
First, accept death, and give up any hope of life.ਹੋਹੁ ਸਭਨਾ ਕੀ ਰੇਣੁਕਾ ਤਉ ਆਉ ਹਮਾਰੈ ਪਾਸਿ ॥੧॥Hohu Sabhanaa Kee Raenukaa Tho Aao Hamaarai Paas ||1||Become the dust of the feet of all, and then, you may come to me. ||1||" (Dhan Dhan Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji Ang 1102). Once we realize that; then we can start growing on our spiritual journey; especially since Amrit is beyond death. When one starts to live according to Gurmat; then can one truly cross the worldly ocean; and hopefully merge with Vaheguru; and that is when the Punj Pyare give the Naam. Some may Jaap Naam; however, without a Guru; what progress is there, especially a true Guru who is enlightened at such an early stage. Amrit is both the beginning and the end of something; it is the start to a new life; and also the end of the negativity that was surrounding you from progress; (Paap), with the forgiveness of your Paap, or Sins; we finally are able to be free and truly progress in Gurmat.
Now some people may ask is Amrit important if you already Jaap the Naam; maybe as a strong connection, "Is Amrit still worth it?" To them; Daas will say that these people would benefit even more than a Paapi, (sinner), like Daas when he took Amrit. Why is it even better for these people who had Naam Jaap before Amrit to take Amrit is because of the system of what Amrit really is, and Amrit is giving the head to the Guru, now their Naam Jaaps get a point for having a Guru, if they Jaaped Naam even once before taking Amrit; that would be multiplied by 10 times; if such a person was doing this constant Amrit Vela for even 1 Jaap of Amrit Vela Simran; that blessing would be immense with Amrit from the Punj Pyare. Amrit is also an opportunity or a turn; as we don't always get to know that Dhan Dhan Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji is the only way anytime; but rather; we must be productive with the time we have.
To those who want to take Amrit; remember that this is about giving your head to the Guru; and not to gain any external gain; (do it from the heart). If you are not ready to take Amrit; then Daas asks for you to still improve your Bhagti; with Nitnem; maybe listening to Kirtan; doing Seva; trying to wake-up at Amrit Vela and work on your simran; so when you may feel prepared and wanting to take it; you can already have some Bhagti from taking Amrit and start at a higher Rehat than someone who didn't do Bhagti before Amrit, (though at the end; both will reach the goal to be with the Guru). To everyone else who is neither ready; nor wants to take Amrit; Daas asks for you to also improve your Bhagti and doing Seva and waking-up Amrit Vela; as Daas was once in this section; the Guru is not only the Guru for the Sikhs, but all of humanity; and he still wants you to progress; even if that may be in your own pace.
Vaheguru, Vaheguru, Vaheguru; when we realize this; that is when we can start to grow. In Daas growth; there have been many mistakes; but due to Amrit; Daas has finally found a way to keep strong with the Guru's blessings. Dhan Dhan Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji is the one who can save us and merge us with Vaheguru; nobody else even comes close. Through Amrit; we can progress and finally reach a life-goal of finally building Kirpa, (grace), to merge with Vaheguru. Vaheguru; Bhul Chuk Maaf Karni; Forgive any Mistakes from Daas. Vaheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Vaheguru Ji Ki Fateh!
