How can I find time for Vaheguru Ji amidst a busy work schedule?

Gurbani tells us that while life keeps us occupied with various errands, the key is to consistently remember Vaheguru in our hearts. As we go about our day, this can be as simple as tuning into a BoS TV podcast while cooking dinner or reading a Chaupai Sahib with our little ones during the school run!

Do our earnings from this world accompany us after death?

While we work to sustain ourselves in this world, the wealth we accumulate will not accompany us after death. If there is anything that goes with the soul on its journey after death, it is the earning of Naam (the experience of connecting to Vaheguru) through Seva, Simran and Sangat.

How can I love my family but not be attached to them?

This path is very fine-lined! While you must take care of your family, in the same breath, you must not get attached to them. The solution is to connect with Vaheguru Ji, so that you are always depending on an ever-stable, unchanging source. This way, you serve your dear ones better, staying resilient in loss by acknowledging it as divine will.

Is it okay to hold back myself from progressing in Sikhi due to family or friends?

We often hesitate to keep our Kes (uncut hair) or take Amrit and advance on the Sikh path due to worldly relations, but Guru Sahib Ji explains to us that it's not the world, but our pursuit of truth that accompanies us on our journey hereafter. Do not refrain from building a connection with your Guru due to worldly opinions! The world is temporary, the Guru is forever.

Can't I begin connecting with Vaheguru when I am older? Isn't youth meant to be enjoyed?

Youth plays a critical role in habit formation. Gurbani says that rarely anyone who did not commit to building a relation with Vaheguru in their early days will do so in their last days. The next moment is never guaranteed and that is why, now is the time to commit to doing Seva, Simran and Sangat. Fulfil your true purpose while you are active and in good health.

I am old now, is it too late for me to connect to Vaheguru?

It is never too late to connect to Vaheguru. Gurbani says,

ਅਜਹੂ ਕਛੁ ਬਿਗਰਿਓ ਨਹੀ ਜੋ ਪ੍ਰਭ ਗੁਨ ਗਾਵੈ ॥

Even now, no harm has been done, if you will only sing God's Praises.

Even if you have one breath left, there is a possibility of connecting to Vaheguru and finding your true purpose. So If you have still got breath, you have still got opportunity. Surrender to the Guru’s command and build a life of Seva, Simran and Sangat.
