Like all other 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 late evening, before going to bed. Essentially a modern 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 late evening, it is remembering the Divine Entity; there is nothing specific distinguishing one prayer from the other. The 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).
