One Universal Creator God….

As fragrance abides in the flower
As reflection is within the mirror,
So does your Lord abide within you,
Why search for him without?
~ Guru Nanak, First Sikh Guru

Prayer is an important part of a Sikh’s daily life. Sikhs regard prayer as a way of spending time in company with God. Sikhs believe prayer and meditation to be essential in attaining desirable qualities and overcoming ego. Sikh scripture counsels that each breath is an opportunity for prayer. There are five daily prayers, known as nitnem banis, taken from Sikh scriptures and written in Gurmukhi script. Nitnem banis are required to be spoken, read or listened to at the appropriate time of day by a devout Sikh. The required prayers of Sikhism are performed generally while sitting or standing. Sikhs do not kneel or prostrate during prayer.
