There is a Que which i found in a forum
“ When reciting the name Vaheguru with my eyes closed i always try to keep my mind focused on a certain image or scene to stop my mind wondering. Mostly i always recite it by keeping Guru Ji’s picture in my mind. But my mind wondered and i began to think how do i meditate with a image of Vaheguru, i tried so hard but i could’nt think of a certain image to prefer Akal Purakh himself. “
And the best Answer given to this Question is
“Tun Meh Tian, Tian Meh Jania, Gurmukh Akaath Kahani
(Tun) means sound (Tian) means concentration.
So our guruji tells us to concentrate our mind (Tian) on the sound (Tun). When you are saying Vaheguroo, concentrate on the sound of your own voice saying the shabad “Vaheguroo”.
Do not create images/pictues/photos in your mind, that is just another thought and it is Maya. You do not want to concentrate on Maya. Our guru is shabad guru and that is what you need to concentrate on.
For Kharku it will take time for the mind to settle down and start concentrating it has taken me a many months to settle the mind engough to sit for a few hours and do simran.
There is no intermediate stage for this where as a beginner, you visualise pictures. Everyone’s mind wonders !! Its with efforts and Kirpa from the Vaheguru when things will start to change, and your love for doing Simran will increase like no ones business. “
I think this is the best way to do the simran.
If you know a better way to do simran then pl. share with everyone.
