Vichaar on Sunai Pauris of Siri Jap jee Sahib
								

 
Vichaar on Sunai Pauris of Siri Jap jee Sahib
Presented below are the Bishraams and Uchaaran guidance for 4 Pauris (8 to 11) of Siri Jap jee Sahib. For details on the meanings of these pankitis, please go to the bottom of this page. The pauris of suniai are very important for seekers of Vaheguru because these 4 pauris and the 4 pauris of manai tell us about the greatness of listening to Amrit Naam and to have faith in Amrit Naam. So great is the effect of listening to Amrit Naam with full concentration that merely by listening to Naam, one gets into smaadhi and all one's sorrows and sins are eradicated.
 
Many years ago, I visited a friends house who's mother was listening to Siri Jap jee Sahib katha done by Charan Singh the Guru of Radhasoami Beas branch. He was doing katha of pauris of suniai and was saying that some people interpret these pauris as listening to Gurbani or Naam but if this was true then how come so many people are doing loads of Gurbani paath and doing simran but no one is getting any results from it. Then he explained the Radhasoami point of view saying that the meaning of suniai here is to listen to Dhunaatmak Naam i.e. some kind of celestial sounds that they try to listen when in meditation. At first they try to listen to the sound of a ghanta (bell) from the right side of the brain. Then they move on to other sounds like thundering of clouds, water flowing and flute etc. This they consider listening to Naam and they conclude that only by listening to such Naam one can get the benefits described in the 4 pauris of suniai.
 
Bhai Sahib Randhir Singh has written a whole book on this topic, called Gurmat Naam Abhyaas Kamaayee. He has very strongly contended and refuted the aforementioned viewpoint of Radhasoamis and other similar sects. He writes that imagining to listening to the sounds of bells, clouds, water flowing or flute, how can we classify this as listening to Naam. Listening to Naam means listening to Naam-Gurmantr that we get from Punj Pyaaray.
 
It may sound very easy task but listening to Naam-Gurmantr is not that easy. It's extremely hard. It is hard to listen to Naam, without any other thought in the mind, even 5 times in a row. If one can listen to Naam continuously for even few minutes, then one can achieve anything one wants. What to talk about minutes, Siri Guru jee in Gurbani writes that if one concentrates one's mind on Naam even for half a breath, Vaheguru becomes Haazir Hazoor (Tukk Dum karaari jao karo, Haazir Hazoor Khudaaye||).
 
Charan Singh Radhasoami did point out a good point that Sikhs do a lot of Gurbani paath but don't derive benefit from it. The reason that he did not explain because he probably did not know, is that we don't listen to Gurbani and Naam with full concentration. If we do, then one paath of Gurbani is enough to achieve anything we want.
 
As for the Dhunatmak Naam, the theory is that Radhasoamis believe in two kinds of Naam i.e. Varnatmak Naam and Dhunatmak Naam. There is no Gurbani reference to backup this claim. Varnatmak Naam according to them is any Naam that one can utter from mouth including Raam, Krishan etc. Dhunatmak Naam according to them is listening to bells, clouds, water flowing and flute etc. Now what happens is that after japping their Naam (Jyot Naranjan, Oankaar, Rarankaar, Sohang, Satnaam) for some time they cover their eyes and ears with their fingers and then try to hear the sound of bell. If the mind wants to hear the bell ringing in the right side of the mind, it will create this sound and the listener will start listening to this sound. What is so great about it? The real Sound is the Anhat sound that one hears without any intention and effort and that comes only after intensive and extensive kamaayee of Gurmat Naam.
 
Coming back to the topic of Suniai, the central meaning of these pauris is that by listening to Gurmat Naam from the mouth of the true Guru and then japping and listening to this Gurmat Naam, day and night, with full concentration one gets all the benefits listed in these four pauris. The benefits are so great that they seem unbelievable to many but for a Sikh of Guru Nanak Dasmesh, there is no doubt about the truthfulness of these pauris.
 
With respect to bishraams, the first thing to remember is that there is a pause after every 'suniai'.
 
The dulaava of the word 'suniai' must be pronounced clearly and the sound of dulaava should be nasal.
 
The meaning of this word is 'sunan karke' i.e. because of listening to Naam i.e. through listening to Naam.
