So the Guru states, that without a Guru one can not traverse the Ocean of Life... Guru is the boat that we...

Local retailers I know of, often have their Sherwani's etc. shipped in bulk from India, and when there is customization necessary, get special orders from I...

Re: What does Gurbani say about Mind

Additionally Ji,

Additionally the mind is thought (Sanklap) and opposite though (Viklap) - 2 dichotomies Conscious mind v. Observing mind

Lastly, there is no-mind = meditation or Samadhi

It is believed that there are 3 perhaps 4 levels of the mind:

- Conscious
- Subconscious
- Unconscious

Fateh!
