Give because God gives to you. Love because that is your purpose in life. Shine because it is important. Share because it is demanded of you. How can you do it? In Japji, Guru Nanak gave you guidance, telling you the way he found liberation, "In the ambrosial hour, meditate on the True Identity. Your karma will be covered and you will see the door of liberation."
Rise up and praise your conception, your reality, your identity and soul. Understand your Creator—examine it. Make your heart flow like a river—all your difficulties will wash away. The ambrosial hour is the time to get ready to go to the Universe; it is the hour of your life. Do you want to be happy, prosperous, gracious? Do you want to know everything? Do you want to have things come to you? If you cover a magnet with rubber it will not attract anything. Realize that this time is given to you to be pure and to live in piety, with a burning fire of compassion, touching every heart.
Guru Kriya—Touch Every Heart
Sit up straight in a cross-legged position. Place the left hand on the heart and raise the right hand to the side as if you are taking an oath. The fingers of both hands are spread and do not touch each other—this is the secret of this meditation. Eyes are closed. Sing along with Guru Jiwan Singh's Guroo Dayv Mata shabd. Become it. Let Guru come in. Let the guidance of God come in. Apply yourself. Be steady. Continue for 31 minutes.
Place the right hand over the left hand on the heart. Chant in a monotone Aad Guray Nameh, Jugaad Guray Nameh, Sat Guray Nameh, Siree Guroo Dayvay Nameh. Continue for 3 minutes. To end, inhale deeply, hold, and press your heart center with the strength of both hands. Cannon Fire Exhale. Repeat 2 more times. Relax.
