Waheguru ji ka khalsa waheguru ji ki fateh,

i started to do Kirtan sohila right before going to sleep, because i really had problems with bad dreams and sleeping. Anyway the bad dreams stopped but i started doing kirtan sohila 3 days ago. I did it twice and i suddenly got soo many bad dreams and couldnt sleep properly.

Yesterday i didnt do kirtan sohila before sleeping and i could sleep perfectly and had no bad dreams.

Why did this happend ? I thought kirtan sohila is supposed to defend us for nightmares.

Please explain to me.

Thank you

Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa..Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh !!

Try Adding Rakhya Ke Shabad..Read Them Before Sohila Saab..They have been Given by Guru Arjan Dev Ji Maharaaj.Here are the links:

Read Them In the same sequence as the links has been given and do a Ardaas Asking Waheguru And Guru sahib That Please do some mercy on me and Vanish all theese bad dreams.

I don't know anything as I am also a Paapi..Kalyugi So I can't answer your question completely but I advice you to Read Theese Holy Shabads..I Hope Rakhya Ke Shabad Would help.

Please Waheguru Ji Do Kirpa On all of us.Please Satguru Help us.

Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa..Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh !!

Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh

Try doing it again and see if you get nightmares.

I was listening to a Katha the other day, how many people can see/hear things after doing simran/path and how they leave it because they get scared. Check this video out

Don't leave Kirtan Sohila because of bad dreams.

Kirtan Sohila is a collection of hymns of Guru Nanak ji, Guru Amardas ji and Guru Arjan Dev ji. These hymns underline the pains of parting of human beings from God and the bliss to be achieved when one unites with God again. To remove the fear of death.

Satguru is with us at all times and protects us from the Angel of Death and demons. If one unexpectedly dies in their sleep, they will not enter lower lifeforms. Bad thoughts or dreams do not occur if Kirtan Sohila has been recited. Satguru places an iron fortress around him/her so nothing can hurt or scare the individual.

This is from the video description from this Kirtan Sohila video, if you don't do Sohila just listen to it. Heres the link

Also just keep saying Waheguru till you sleep or do Mool Mantar or Say Dhan Baba Nanak

Or just say the starting of Sukhmani Sahib


Heres a link to the translation and video

This also refers to the first 4 Gurus. Which came before Guru Arjan Dev Ji.

Hope this helps and hope you keep doing Sohila.

Please forgive me if i said anything wrong or offensive.
