How to Reach God in Sikhism

In Sikhism, Sikhs believe that they are all God's sons and daughters. They have come onto this world after 8.4 million life forms but it is so hard to still reach God. Here are some steps to get away from the world's attractions and reach God's blessings.


  1. 1
    Refresh your mind completely.
  2. 2
    Listen to Sakhi's (teachings and stories). This by itself destroys anxiety of the mind (quoted by Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji Maharaj). You can compare what the Sakhis say to what you do. If you listen to Guru Arjan Dev Ji Maharaj's life, Guru Tegh Bahadur Sahib Ji's life, and Guru Gobind Singh Ji's life especially you will see truth. Sikh History can teach you a lot of things.
    • If you don't understand punjabi, listen to Sikh2Inspire, BasicsOfSikh, Nirvair khalsa Jatha and Bhai Sukha Singh on soundcloud/youtube.
  3. 3
    Wake up at amrit vela (around 12am-6am). Read/listen to the panj baniya.
  4. 4
    Go to the Gurdwara. By giving your head to Guru Ji, Guru Ji Maharaj automatically protects you. This is also Quoted in Guru Granth Sahib Ji.
  5. 5
    Meditate in Naam for an hour. This is truly blessing and powerful.
  6. 6
    Ask God (do an ardass or ask someone at the Gurdwara to) to save you from dukh (sorrow, pain). You can ask God for anything but its how much you want/try to get it that matters. Basically, if you want something from God, read sukhmani sahib or any other baniya and then do ardass.
  7. 7
    Commit yourself to God. No one else can really truly help you except from Guru Ji Maharaj. The only one who is true is God. Satnaam- True is his name. Repeat the mool mantar every spare minute you have.


  • Don't get distracted by worldly matters. If you want separation from your mind and the world, create a knowledgeable mind inside you. This will fight of any distractions you have in your mind. Compare what you do to what a pure Sikh should do.
  • Forget what the world can give to you, these are all fake and they won't go with you to your next life. The only thing that will is Waheguru. Waheguru can save you from death
  • If you have any questions go the Gurdwaras and ask for help.
  • If you have Soundcloud, you can listen to all the things in God's trust: waheguru_1984_sikhi. Just to let you know, these people are amazing at telling Sikh history.


  • It is hard to forget things in this time and world, don't worry if it doesn't happen at once. You need to try, try and try again. Try to win over your mind.
  • Don't rely on other worldly people, no one can teach you the truth except Guru Ji. Don't follow fake people. Get into the right sangat (people). If you are really lucky, start following a Sant. Sants are people Sikhs believe are sent by God. They have so much wisdom that their lives are dedicated in helping you reach God. It is so hard to describe what to do and what not to do. Only Guru Ji Maharaj can teach you.
