Shabad Guru Course
Radiant Spiritual Sovereignty
Live in Espanola
Continuing the journey of understanding and deepening our practice of the Shabad Guru, Level Two explores the steps of:
Dhyaan (Meditation) to cross our thoughts through the words of the Shabad Guru & clear our subconscious (a magnet covered in rubber doesn’t attract anything; we must be clear and focused to achieve results)
Simran (Vibrational Remembrance) Simran is a state of consciousness that comes after building Japa, Prayer and practicing Raaj Yoga. It is a constant remembrance of the divine within all.
Veechaar (Contemplation) We are here as spiritual beings having a human experience. On this journey our soul has a lesson plan that is always working to expand our consciousness. As we become aware of these lessons we can connect further to understand the shifts happening in our lives and see what the soul is contemplating through our human experience.
We begin the course through an opening of Ardaas (Prayer), where each student will connect with their heart's longing, i.e. what is bringing them to the feet of the Guru. From there, we will connect with this prayer throughout the entire course, as we deepen our practice through applying these tools and methods for our spiritual development.
At the end of the course, we will see how a deep and abiding Bhrosa (Trust) with our Infinity allows us to experience the Guru inside. Through this process each student will take their learning from the course & apply a unique 'prescription' of the tools to connect with their heart's longing, allowing the Guru to come through in our life.
This course is the second level of a three level series on the Steps of Meditation with the Shabad Guru.
All graduates of Level One are welcome to take this course, as well as long term Sikhs and Ministers of Sikh Dharma who are familiar with the concepts in Level One (Gurmukh, Jaap, Bhajan & Sunneeai). If you have questions about this, please contact GuruKirin Kaur here.
This is a very practical course with real life studies, so each student will bring forth a situation from their own lives that needs to be addressed, or an issue they are studying. During the course of the class, these steps will be applied, giving a practical experience of the Shabad Guru in daily life by inviting the Guru in and applying the Shabad Guru to any situation.

Shabad Guru Course ~ Part Two
Steps of Meditation: Dhyaan, Simran & Veechaar
“Without Gurumantra there is no meditation.
Because it has to have an altar which must not have an alternative.
But when you meditate with Gurumantra, it must have a reverence & respect.
Bhagat and Bhagatee. And Bhagatee is where there is a devotion,
there is a reverence, and there is a worship."
Siri Singh Sahib
