First erected by Guru Hargobind Ji, the name of the Akal Takhat means the Eternal Throne of the Timeless One. The Akal Takhat exists beyond time and space, so in actuality it cannot be destroyed. In the spiritual realm it is deathless, timeless, everlasting, and forever. The Siri Singh Sahib told us that the Akal Takhat sacrificed itself.
The Akal Takhat demonstrated by its sacrifice that the true spiritual throne is timeless and eternal and shall not be destroyed. We too will one day shed our own physical form, and the psyche of our soul will merge with our subtle body and depart through the ethers to once again merge with the infinite Akal Purkh.
Guru Hargobind Ji taught us that as human beings we must live consciously in the temporal and spiritual realms, so that we shall merge back into the infinity of Akal Purkh. Our only problem is that while living, we do not align our psyche with our soul, and so at the moment of death we become stuck in the physical realm because we do not have the power of projection to penetrate through the ethers to leave this world.
By meditating while alive on the name of the Divine Master and Infinite Truth, we touch our own center of Divinity and ignite the flow of spiritual awareness throughout our being. Our nervous system is directly linked to our electromagnetic field and so we balance our chakras and Ten Bodies to create a powerful projection of our psyche and soul.
A Spiritual Force
The Siri Singh Sahib told us that Guru Hargobind Ji erected the Akal Takhat at a specific nerve center on our planet to serve as a timeless protective force for humanity. By sacrificing itself, that spiritual force has grown even stronger.
The Akal Takhat serves as the gateway between the heavenly and earthly realms. It is the interlocking of the temporal with the spiritual.
We sacrifice one-tenth of our day for our spiritual well-being. Just as we rewrite our own destiny by meditating and becoming one with the Divine, so too our entire planet and the destiny of humanity was blessed by the sacrifice of the Akal Takhat. This saving grace has given humanity a chance and blessed us with the opportunity to truly live in the spiritual consciousness of the Sovereign Khalsa Spiritual Nation.
The Siri Singh Sahib told us that the Akal Takhat is Divine beyond any religion or culture or people. The Sikhs serve it but do not own it. The Akal Takhat is a Supreme and Heavenly Throne beyond this earth. The Khalsa have the honor to guard it, but it is not the property of anybody. Its jurisdiction is universal truth in all realms of this creation. It is not limited to any particular country or region.
The significance of the sacrifice of the Akal Takhat is the very preservation of our future and the saving grace of humanity. The profound significance of the sacrifice of the Akal Takhat is our honor to serve the Sovereign Khalsa Spiritual Nation and to bring peace and prosperity and justice for all people in the earthly domain, as it is in the heavenly realm.
