The Japji Sahib is a Baani composed by Guru Nanak dev ji, the founder of Sikhism. It appears at the beginning of the Sri Guru Granth Sahib ji and the compilation consists of an opening Salok or verse, a set of 38 Pauris or hymns and a final closing Salok and is an epitome of the Sikh doctrine. It is recited by all practicing Sikhs in their morning prayers.
The Japji Sahib begins with the Mool Mantar, the essence of the Sikh faith; describing the Creator’s character and distinguishing personality. The whole prayer is in a certain sense a manual for a Sikh to attain spiritual perfection. It does not recommend passive contemplation or living an isolated life. It favors participation in the affairs of the world, combined with an integration of wisdom and selfless activity.
Japji sahib describes the basic concepts of Sikhism:
• NaamSimran (singing the praises of God) is put forth as the best way to realizing God. The best time, prescribed for NaamSimran is Amrit Vela, or dawn.
• Understanding ‘Hukam’, or Divine Law as it governs the universe.
• Creation, Guru ji explains, is the result of God’s command. No one knows the expanse of the Lords creation. There are millions of worlds andthe infinity of creation and its manifestation, is beyond count or measure.
• Finally, Guru Nanak dev ji describes the five planes of spiritual progress by which we can attain spiritual realization.
