Panj Karam Advice From Guru Arjan Dev Jee

Taken from Aad Sikh Te Aad Sakhian by P. Stabir Singh
Translated by admin

Once Bhai Laloo, Bhai Baloo and Bhai Hardas Jee asked Guru Arjan Dev Jee how one can liberate this life. In response Guru Arjan Dev Jee said that there are Five actions which if done then you could claim that your life is successful.
The Five are :

1) ਹਰ ਕਿਸੇ ਨਾਲ ਹੱਸ ਕੇ ਮਿਲਣਾ –-- Happily greet everyone you see (Only the ones that are happy internally can truly show this happiness externally. One who sees the Joth in everyone and accepts Akaal Purkh’s play, that person alone can represent this feeling any other state will show falseness.)

2) ਮਿੱਠਾ ਬੋਲਣਾ –-- Speak Sweetly (Do not speak rudely, with anger and hate. Someone that speaks sweetly will naturally not do ninda. There is nothing sweeter than Naam/Gurbanee itself, the saying of Naam/Gurbanee will bring sweetness to the speaker and the listener)

3) ਵੰਡ ਖਾਵਣਾ –-- Share what ever is yours with others.

4) ਨਿਵ ਚਲਣਾ –-- Live Humbly

5) ਸੰਗਤ ਨਿੱਤ ਕਰਨੀ –-- Do Sangat daily ( Do sangat daily of Guru Jee through Naam simran - reading/listening Gurbanee and also do sangat of GurSikhs )
