Amrit Vela

Some usefull threads on Amrit Vela:

Amrit Vela is very important for a Sikh. It is prime time to mediate and become one with Vahiguroo. We must do simran. We find it hard to get up at Amrit Vela, the following are some personal tips one can try.

Alarm Clock:
I often find my self turning the alarm of first thing. So you set up one clock near you to go of 10 minutes earlyer. Set up another alarm clock away from your bed so you have to get up to turn it of. If you have a mobile one idea is to get it on that with a loud keertan as the alarm.

Some people find it good to have a CD player nearby so they can press play and have keertan playing which may help you in waking up.

Night before get to sleep early. Most important is before you sleep after Kirtan Sohila do an ardaas asking for blessing of Guroo Sahib to help you get up at Amrit Vela. I found this to be one of the most important factors whithout which I would never have felt the russ of amrit vela.

Keshi Ishnaan:
Wash your kesh in water only. Tie your keski around your waist placing kangha in it. You dont need to drench them. The water must be cold and then directed to the skull rubbing water in. Your kesh will become damp, this helps you to wake up and become more alert. Use a micro fibber towel, these are said to soak in the water as they are very fine, these are available from sports shops.

Try and have your ishnaan with cold water. It can be hard but it helps to wake up your senses and gets your body doing naam simran naturally.

These are some tips which I hope help. I found the following on I hope it is of use. There are numerous quotes in gurbani to amrit vela. It is all about kirpa do ardaas from your heart and Guroo Sahib does kirpa.
