Nam Japna (Meditation on the Divine Name of God)
Sikh Missionary Society: Sikhism: Principles: Meditation or contemplation on the Name of God

Nam Japna  (Meditation or contemplation on the Name of God)

Nam Simran is the only way to attain unity with God. Guru Nanak Dev established God’s golden rules for leading a pure and pious life. He  preached the concepts by  practically enforcing them in his life first. 

A great stress is given on Nam Simran in Sikhism. A Sikh is required to lead a virtuous, pure and pious life. This virtue can be attained by always remembering and repeating name of God with full concentration, breath by breath. Nam will create love and affection for all those who are created by God. It is strongly believed that a pious person would be compassionate and contended.  He will aspire to serve the needy. He will have no enmity with any one as he knows that God lives in every human being. Hurting of humanity would hurt God. So serve His Creation  to serve God and remember Name of God day and night. The mortal can attain God by  living in Him, by dying  in Him, by Naming Him and in loving Him

Sikhism believes in worshipping One God (Puja Akal Ki) who lives every where and in hearts of all. Every Sikh is required to worship Shabad and adore God’s Name. The Name of God washes away the dirt of mind. Sikhism  believes in observance of both Bani and Bana.

Higher truth is not experienced through the normal process by an average person. Higher truth is not mere fantasy or hallucination of philosophical speculation  that comes into the mind of a person but it is in  fact an experience undergone through  practice of psychosomatic discipline, Simran and regulated Saadhna. 

“Recognize thyself
O' vicious mammon worshipper recognize thy origin. This body is made from blood and semen and shall be taken to fire. According to true mark on the brow (fate), the body is in the power of breath.”
