In the twelfth quality of a speaker, Harman Singh explains the concept of nihangkrito, meaning to get rid of your pride. A speaker should be humble and if they find themselves feeling proud, which can be easy to fall into when regular praise is given to them, then shabads (hymns) of humility can be read. The experience of reciting these will help in reducing ahankaar (pride).
This video is part of a 28 part series on the ideal 14 qualities that a Srota (listener) and 14 qualities that a Bakta (speaker) should adopt, so that both the speaker and listener(s) can best absorb Katha (discourse) and experience Naam (connection to the Divine) through it.
These qualities are taught by Guru Hargobind Sahib (Sixth Sikh Guru), which are written by Kavi Santokh Singh and are also mentioned in Gur Bilas Paatshaahi 6. With Guru Ji’s Kirpa (Grace), we can learn and adopt these qualities in our life, whether if it as a listener of Katha, or if we are Parchariks or aspiring Parchariks (educators).
Basics of Sikhi is a project by Everythings 13, an educational charity dedicated to spreading the wisdom of the Sikh Gurus.
