The Prescribed Sikh Prayers (Nitnem) - Book By Kartar Singh Duggal

From The Frontcover Of 'The Prescribed Sikh Prayers (Nitnem)' By Kartar Singh Duggal 

Like all oilier prominent faiths, the Sikh reli­gion, too, has prescribed prayers for daily observance. While utmost importance is given to the early morning called Amrit Vela - the ambrosial hour, there is a short-duration prayer for the evening and another for the late­evening, before going to bed. Essentially a modem religion (it's only 500 years old) the Sikh Gurus did not prescribe any pre-requi­sites or postures besides simple bath in the morning and physical cleanliness at other hours. Early morning, evening or the late­evening, it is remembering the Divine Entity; there is nothing specific distinguishing one prayer from the other. The prescribed Sikh Prayers are designed to be five in number. These are: Japuji (Guru Nanak), Jaap Saheb, Shabd Hazare and Swwaiye (Guru Gobind Singh), Rehras and Kirtan Sohila (Miscella­neous).

Kartar Singh Duggal, a noted litterateur has transcreated these 'Banis' with utmost devo­tion for the followers of the Great Sikh Gurus who are more proficient in English.
