Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh

I used to do mannats, but it is a waste of time. We need to develop a relationship with Guru ji and Waheguru. For example when you do a mannat, you say to Guru ji if this happens or whatever the mannat is then i will do this. Guru Ji is like your mother or father, if you ask him for something then he is not going to ask for anything in return. But he will be more likely to give something to his child who listens and accepts what he says.

Mannats are pointless, if you forgot about a mannat then say sorry to Guru ji, and try not to do them again. Live in his will, life is not going to go the way we plan it and offering things surely ain't going to change it. But the more path, simran and sewa we do, the bad stuff that are happening or going to happen in life will be minimised or not happen.

Waheguru and Guru ji are the givers, we can't offer them anything.

Please forgive me if i said anything wrong or offensive

^^^ listen to this person above, it is the truth. the first thing I say in my ardaas "waheguru, please help me develop a close relationship to you.. middle part is something my heart desires.. last part but in the end waheguru you are my parent my best friend, do whatever that is in your will, because everyone is under your hukam, but that was just my humble request.

as you do this, you will start to develop a relationship with your soul, you will live the life of excellence. all of the other relationships are just empty, the relationship between you and god is the one that stays with you forever.

also we fail to realize (including me) that life in itself is a gift. your body (this wonderful machine is running on its own) these autonomic processes that are simply just happening! without ur conscious awareness we don't even have too much control over things that happen even... in our life all we can do is build a close relationship with waheguru through guru's teaching and follow that. it talks about that state in japji sahib even (that state in which one actually believes in god can't be described, you can't describe it on a paper with a pen).. this state is this wonderful relationship that you can have with god. this type of relationship in which you start viewing everything as one. and you don't get affected by negativity, when you don't get affected by negativity, then your path is clear!

if u forget a mannat, i feel that your own conscious bothers you, and bad stuff happens from your own thoughts (thinking negatively).. guru nanak ji said in asa di var, if one accepts the concept of impurity they see impurity everywhere. it can be linked to this situation too. if you think something bad happened because you didn't fulfill a mannat, then you dug yourself into negativity. so if the conscious is at work, why not focus the consciousness to god (all the time) instead of bad things. if you do that you are not gonna have anything bad happen. even if it does, with guru's blessing you can get out of it, because your consciousness is not stained with impurity. the purpose of bani is to wash away the dirt of the inside.

your question can be tackled at different angles. (: sorry guys if I said something that was incorrect (still learning and forever a learner) :)
