Sri Akal Takht


Sri Akal Takht, Amritsar, India


Sri Akal Takht, June 6, 1984 after Indian Army attack

PREFACE

The Akal Takht was first constructed by Guru Hargobind in 1609 to represent the Authority over the matters and affairs of the Sikh society. It was constructed at an angle to symbolize its position was to guard and protect the sacred seat of authority in humility and to be in serve to the grace of the sacred light practiced in the Golden Temple. See the Five Holy Takhts.


Golden Temple-Akal Takht Complex, Amritsar, India

It is at the Akal Takht that all matters of importance to Sikhs are deliberated. Historically twice a year, on Baisaikhi and Divali, the Guru would issue Hukamnamas from the Akal Takht. Later, this Takht was the court from which the Amrit Ceremony was given to Sikhs, as well as the place where any transgressions against the Panth were confessed with appropriate measures taken to clear the offence and restore balance to the spirit of the Sikh community. Throughout history there were times the Akal Takht was destroyed by events which later lead the community to reclaim and rebuild their Throne of Authority as a community. The Martyrdom of the Akal Takht in 1984 is the reason why we celebrate in our Gurdwara every 6th day of the month starting in 1984. (See video.) (See Who Are Sikhs on CNN.)


Siri Singh Sahib
Bhai Sahib Harbhajan Singh Khalsa Yogiji


The Akal Takht, located in the sacred city of the Sikhs, Amristsar, in northern India is a place where the time stream shifted, consciousness accelerated, and a new era of history began.

Here, within the Golden Temple complex, is the Akal Takht, founded by Guru Hargobind in 1606. Yogi Bhajan defined Taa—khat. Taa means base, the fundamental. Khat means the line. Takht is the fundamental baseline of Infinity. Akal means undying, Infinite, timeless.

Guru Hargobind found this the focal point of the planet's psyche and built a throne for the entire humanity.

Sikhs do not own this Takht; they are the servants and guardians of it.

This is the nerve center of the planet's psyche and sovereignty.

When you meditate on the Akal Takht, the mind activates a creative direction that takes you out of the dualistic karmic world of action and reaction and into the realm of timeless, undying spirit.

The Akal Takht is a unique power point: it is outside of time. It is the one place on Earth where you can enter timelessness and experience ruler-ship of ether and earth, spiritual and temporal, mortal and immortal.

Akal Takht is the nucleus point, the central source of the energy that comes from beyond time, beyond the beyond.

There is no other place like it on Earth…it is the hub of the temporal and spiritual foundation of the planetary psyche.

We are a magnetic psyche. The pranic, vibratory Earthly matrix we live in is nothing but a huge electromagnetic field. Everything is intertwined, interwoven; all our psyches are connected.


Earth's magnetic field

Time creates the thought of length in the mind. The human quest is to expand, create width, within that time-limited thought.

As the Age changes there is a built in acceleration that is occurring in time, and we need to synchronize our mind with this emerging, accelerated energy.

When we enter into the frequency field of a place beyond time, we activate deeply in our thought stream the potential of experiencing the timelessness of Infinity within the time/space continuum of now.

We meditate at/on the Akal Takht and condition the mind to the realms outside of time: this will give us a perceptual stability that we can use to our advantage as the flow of time within and without changes direction. -- Harijiwan Singh

More about the Akal Takhat

The Akal Takhat means the "Throne of the Immortal" and is the highest political institution of the Sikhs. The Akal Takhat is an impressive building which sits directly in front of the causeway leading to the Golden Temple in Amritsar, Punjab, India.

The original structure of Akal Takhat was built by Guru Hargobind ji, Bhai Gurdas ji and Baba Buddha ji with their own hands. Guru ji remarked that the seat of the Guru would serve the panth for eternity. Guru ji raised the height of the platform to twelve feet, defying the royal edict of Emperor Jehangir that no other person except the Emperor himself can sit on a raised platform of more than three feet. Guru Hargobind would regularly sit on the raised platform (Takhat), with all marks of royalty, and dispense justice for all disputes of the Sikhs.

On June 6, 1984 the Indian Army stormed the Golden Temple and even brought battle tanks onto the Parkarma. Untold numbers of Sikhs, including pilgrims and visitors to the Harmandir Sahib, were killed. The Akal Takhat, the supreme seat of authority for the Sikhs, bore the brunt of the attack and suffered severe damage. -- Courtesy Sikhiwiki.org. See Glossary of Sikh Terms.

More about the Akal Takhat

Sri Akal Takht: Sri means great or supreme. Akal means that which cannot come into the lap and collapse of death; that which is death-free. Kaal means time or death. Akal means deathlessness.

Why did Guru Hargobind create a Takht and call it Akal Takht? It was actually a spiritual, most powerful, virtuous place of worship. It represented deathlessness. Wherever the Sikhs are, whether they have visited it or not, it rules the command and the jurisdiction of the territory and totality of the human being.

So in our mind and heart, there is no virtual definition that we do not belong to something. This is one act you have to understand. You have been taken away from territorial rulership, geographical rulership and time rulership. You have been taken away from culture, association, habits and understanding, and taken to the status of achieving nirvana, beyond that mukhti (liberation), beyond that ecstasy, beyond that self-recognition and self-illumination which are the highest.

In the Sikh religion, the very aspect that we have Akal Takht is unique. What does it do? It takes us from infinity to infinity. It gives us a combination and a jurisdiction to which we belong and to which we relate. -- Siri Singh Sahib of Sikh Dharma, June 6, 1990. See Glossary of Sikh Terms.
