15) “BAAD(VAAD) NA KARNO KOY” Never indulge in unnecessary & excessive dispute/debate/argument/controversy.
Unnecessary arguments and wrongly trying to justify by debate comes under this rule.
Positive debate, discussion does not come under this category. When we know that we are wrong and others are right but with arguments we try to prove others wrong that is very bad and people start avoiding us.
Without listening to others we try to prove ourselves right by debating.
This is a major cause of health problems of hypertension, high blood pressure, heart attach, stroke and fighting. This increase jealousy, enmity and decreases faith & trust and spoils relationship & friendship.
Great people will never argue and that does not mean that they are weak. Actually they are intelligent and do not waste their time, energy and peace of mind.
Instead of debating we should first listen to others point of view.
That may be reason that God gave us 2 ears to listen and 2 eyes to see but only 1 mouth to speak. Therefore we should use our senses proportionately.
If we keep debating we will not know the truth and will not learn/gain knowledge. We should never consider that we are idle or perfect. Everyone has some good qualities.
Guru Ji said, “VAD VIVAD FITA KAR PRANI” means o people avoid unnecessary debate. “VAD VIVADE DANU KHINA” means by doing wrong debate not only human but even demons have been destroyed. “BHARMI BHULA BAD VIVAD, ACHAR VICHARNA JANAT SWAD” some mislead people waste their time in unnecessary arguments and they do not know the benefit of good & modest dealing.
16) “AMAWAS VART RAKHNO” Observe fast on AMAWAS (last day of the dark half of a month).
Our body is also a type of machine and like any other machines our body, stomach and digestive system need rest. Now the health experts also advise benefit of regular fasting. To make regular fasting Guru Ji advised to keep fast monthly on every AMAWAS so that we can remember easily. Most of the religions & faiths advise some type of fast on different days and many Hindu faiths & holy books recommend fast on Amawas. There is a spiritual & astrological reason also for fasting on Amawas. On Amawas, sun and moon falls in one sign and that day eating food, doing farming, business etc. do not give full benefits. That is why Bishnois not do farming activities e.g. ploughing, crop cutting, shovelling or construction of house etc. on this day.
This is end day of the month (Hindu calendar) and we should utilise this day in self realisation and praying.
Keeping fast and spending time in meditation, reading good books and doing religious activities are recommended on this day.
