http://sikhiwiki.org/index.php/Sampat_path

"Sampat path is a variation of akhand path in which the reading of every single complete hymn of the Guru Granth Sahib is followed by the reading of a predetermined sabda or sJoka ( from the Guru Granth. Sahib itself) which is thus repeated throughout the recitation. The path is performed in a curtained cabin so that the reading is audible outside the cabin but the path! (reader) and the Scripture are not in the view of the audience. In the Hindu tradition, a mantra, prefixed and suffixed by another mystic word or mantra, is called sampat mantra. Literally, a sampat is a casket in which devout Hindus keep their idols or stone images called thakurs. The sampat path obviously takes double the time of an akhand path, or even more. Since such a path is contrary to the Sikh tenets, it never became an accepted form and is no longer in common vogue."

No they don't.

:lol:

Ok then Mr Spokesperson for every jathebandi!

I guess the taksali's and nihang singhs (and non-jathebandi singhs) that i know who do this type of path must be imaginary then!

off-topic but one of banis my grandad does everyday from memory is sampat sukhmani sahib. takes him under an hour to do it with sampat when it takes me a zillion years to read from Gutka without sampat

guess this is what happens when you spend too much time arguing Sikhi & not enough practising it :umm:

"AK-47" veerjee/bhainjee I wasn't talking to you.

Bottom line, some do it, some don't.

Do it if you understand gurbani better. Don't do it if you think otherwise.
