Best and Worst Times to be Quiet
								

1. What's the worse time to be quiet?

With great difficulty, we have been blessed with the Human form. It is one of the 8.4 million life forms. It's very rare. Then Sikhi jeevan too is very rare out of Human form. We have been blessed with Guru Sahib's Sikhi, Amrit Gurbani and Amrit Naam. The month of Sawan, when rain falls liberally, comes once in a year. Same way, with great fortune we are blessed with occasions when Gursikhs get together to chant Naam and sing Gurbani in Kirtan. Amritvela is the worse time to be quiet (audibly or inaudibly) and not chanting Naam. Same way to be present in Kirtan and keeping quiet is such a misfortune. Akhand Kirtan is not musical concert where the audience is supposed to be mere listener. In Akhand Kirtan, as much as possible, one should sing Gurbani with Rasna, and Japp Naam within.

Amritvela is the worse time to sleep. Be quiet (of Naam) and sleep at any other time but not at Amritvela, when naturally, Amrit Barkha (rainfall) occurs. Bhai Jagtar Singh once disclosed a mystical secret that at Amritvela, unseen, invisible-to-the-common-eye, special Amrit Barkha occurs all over, and one should never miss this, by sleeping or by not alertly indulging in Naam-Gurbani.

2. What's the best time to be quiet?

When facing such a person, who is not destined to realize the truth of Gurmat, one should not preach Gurmat. One should not cast pearls before swine or throw that which is holy to dogs (New Testament). According to Gurbani, only the Jauhry (merchant of diamonds) knows the price of a diamond. Therefore, arguing with such person who is not destined to realize the truth of Gurmat (Gurbani calls them Moorakh), is futile. One should keep quiet, unless of course, it is a Panthik issue or if it is a question of honour of Panth. Everyday, arguing with the foolish should be avoided and as Bhai Gurman Singh pointed out, such time should is well spent on drinking the divine substance of Naam.

Worst time be quiet? 1. When you see someone being unfairly treated, or disrespect of Guru Jee or Gursikhs is happening.
Best time to be quiet? 2. When hearing your own nindiya, being spoken rudely too, or being told off/scolded by elders.
