"Can I see? I like flowers."

vaheguroo ji ka khalsa vaheguroo ji ki fateh

veerjio, i noticed a comment u made on another blog, about "akj" way of sayin vaheguroo, being like a tounge twister.
I just thought i would clear up why when jatha singhs japp naam, it ends up soundin like that.
Thing is, thats how jatha singhs are taught to do simran when takin amrit, web breathing in say vah, breathing out say guroo, and to put emphasis on the 'roo' part. Even guroo gobind singh ji mahraj, told, i think it was mata gujri ji, that when doin simran, ones tounge shud touch the top of the mouth. When u strive to do this, while at the same time concentraitng on breathing, it sounds slightly "tounge twisting", especially when doing it fast. We dont try to make it sound silly, we just try our best to follow how we interpret how guroo sahib told us to do simran.
I know from my own experince the rass ive tasted from doing it lyk that, and im sure even if wat we do is wrong, Guroo sahib understands our pyaar.
Bhull chukk maaf veerji, im only the dust of ur feet.
Vaheguroo Ji Ka Khalsa Vaheguroo Ji Ki Fateh

Thanks for your comment.
I didn't mean to say that the 'AKJ style' simran was a tongue twister, I simply meant that at the samgams I've been to, which happened to not be AKJ, people didn't do any of that kind of chanting.
I've heard tracks where people get a bit carried away and you can't even hear them say clearly 'WaheGuru.' If I'm going to do simran with the mantra of WaheGuru I want to use the whole mantra clearly.
I appreciate your comment, where the tongue hits the upper palate definitely changes the affect of any mantra. The style of pranayam also brings different affects in yoga and meditation. You're absolutely right about pyaar, that is what matters the most.
