Comments: We are experiencing rapid universal transformation.Old structures, outdated ways of thinking and being are crumbling. We see it in our personal lives, in our communities, in the global news. In order to keep up with the times and truly "live for each other" we must transcend our individual consciousness and expand into a collective and Infinite consciousness. This meditation removes obstacles so we may unite in radiance and truth.

What Prosperity Means
For some people, prosperity is just a word. Prosperity means a big house... two, three cars, a boat, good businesses, money, good sex life, obedient children, political connections, status in society, etc., etc.  And I can go on like this.  Actually that is not what prosperity means. 
 
It's very unfortunate that you in the West have defined prosperity.  It took the East five thousand years to define prosperity. 
 
Prosperity only means your perpetual strength and your progressions when you control the events as you want them.  Perpetual progressions... yours, including your environ-ments, circumstances, rela-tionships, dreams, and wishes.  It is the manifestation by you. 
 
You as a commander, you as a leader to purvey a projection, a penetration, a conception and a delivery of your dreams.  If that strength is not there, you are not prosperous.
 
Langar, in Punjabi, means what you put from the ship to stabilize the ship, its called anchor.   Langar means 'anchor' exactly.  It practically means that, and there are two words as a Khalsa we should understand, 'sangat' and 'pangat',  anchor and communication. 

Sangat, 'sang' means friendship... community, nation, people, world.  Any relationship is based with one sound, 'sangat'.  'Gat', in which we find the satisfaction.  There are two words in it,  'sang' 'gat'  'sangat'.  Where my relationship will find gat...  satisfaction, honor, grace. It is satisfaction of my honor and my grace,  'pangat'  'pang' 'gat'.  Where I get food and water and I have satisfaction of my honor and grace.  
 
And in our ardas prayer we say, ‘deg, teg, fateh’.  That is our prosperity to be perpetual, our power to be Infinite.  That's where our ardas prayer starts:  "Pritem bhagoti simarkay Guru Nanak layee dee-i-ee".  Those who want to be prosperous have to learn to make others prosperous.  If you cannot make others prosperous, you cannot be prosperous, doesn't matter what you try.
 
Lastly, teach people the science and art of undying, ‘akal moort’, that is what Guru Nanak said, that’s what Siri Guru Granth Sahib gave us, and that’s what we are.  When a person lives as ‘akal moort’, personified pictorial God, then God has no option but to dwell in such person.  Then ‘ajuni, saibhang, gurprasad’ unborn, self-realized, realized through Guru's grace comes through.  We need those who can carry many.

Questions About Tithing
Our answers to questions on tithing are intended to be helpful and suggestions rather than hard and fast rules.  It is best to depend on your own in-dwelling Spirit; to experience within your own hearts and minds about what you should do, and then give freely, not grudgingly or with trepidation. 
 
Let’s consider some questions we have been asked recently about tithing:
 

Q: Should I tithe while I owe a great deal of money, or should I wait until all my debts are paid and then tithe? A: Tithing establishes an order that will not permit us to remain in debt for long.

Q: I feel I should tithe, but my expenses are such that I can hardly live on my present income.  Should I tithe now or wait until I am earning more money? A: If one feels led to tithe, then one should.  Those who wait until they are out of debt, or are earning more, seldom begin.  If one has an urge to tithe, then it is time to begin.  The right way to begin to tithe is to decide definitely to do it and then begin.
 

Q: I would like to tithe, but my spouse does not approve, and I have no income apart from his. A: As for people who have no direct income of their own, they can give of what they have and of whatever money that comes to them to use as they choose.
 

Q: A person with a salary may have no problem in knowing that their tithe is the tenth of their whole income, but how about a person in business who consumes quite a large amount of material in the production of an article? Should the tithe be paid on ´gross receipts or on net profits after the costs of operation have been deducted? A: A business person’s tithe can be one-tenth of the salary drawn.  A business, as an entity, may tithe based on net profits. There are businesses who develop an even greater faith and tithe on gross receipts.  One woman, who runs a home care business, tithes on everything she takes in before meeting any expenses.  She says that she has prospered abundantly.
 
Begin where you are, and act upon your faith.
Sikh Dharma is for all.
It doesn’t just give you dictates.
That’s the difference between
Sikh Dharma and other Dharmas.
It doesn’t tell you or command you to serve everybody.
It also lays down a technology of
How you can develop the strength to serve everybody.
How you can learn the self,  self-knowledge, self-defense
And the games of the mind.
Therefore Ong Kar, One Creator has a very special meaning.
It has a very special aspect. It is the reality of the day.
When lived, understood, then you don’t find God.
God finds you. 
- Siri Singh Sahib Ji

Any Amount Given in the Name of God Manifests Ten-fold.
