Live Sri Harmandir Sahib Kirtan

 

 

 

From the opening of the doors in the early morning till late evening, there is a continuous recitation of holy hymns (Gurbani).

At night after the departure of Sri Guru Granth Sahib on a gold-palanquin the floor of the Harmandir Sahib is given a thorough wash with diluted milk by volunteers. This sewa is accompained by sweet singing of holy-hyms. Next the gaddi’s (cushions) on which Sri Guru Granth Sahib is enshrined, are spread, followed by distribution of sacred-food. Then the hymn-singing concert of early morning (Tin-Pahrey-Di-Chaunkee) starts.

There is non-stop reading (Sri Akhand Path) of Sri Guru Granth Sahib at various locations in the building of Sri Harmandir Sahib.

Note: There is, however, a change in these timings according to summer or winter.
