Gurbani from Nitnem Guthka

Gurbani (Punjabi: ਗੁਰਬਾਣੀ) is a Sikh terminology, commonly used by Sikhs to refer to any compositions of the Sikh Gurus and other Writers of Guru Granth Sahib. In General, the central text of Sikh, i.e Guru Granth Sahib is called Gurbani. Among Amritdhari Sikhs, Few texts from Dasam Granth which are read in Nitnem like Tav-Parsad Svaiyey, Chaupai are also considered as Gurbani .

Sikh historical writings, unauthentic writings or apocryphal compositions in name of Sikh Gurus and other writings by Sikhs are not considered as Gurbani and are referred to as Kachi Bani.[1]

Etymology[edit]

Gurbani is composed of two words: 'Gur' and 'Bani'. Gur have multiple meanings as per context. In Guru Granth Sahib, Gur word is used for multiple meanings, as per context of Hymn. The common use of Gur is either for Wisdom and Internal Counscious Mind (Referred as Chitta or Antar Atma).[2]

Thereby Gurbani either means the speech of Wisdom or The speech of counscious mind.

Gurbani is directly received from inside after attaining of Supreme state where as Granth or textual form is worldly language of the same. Gurbani is also referred as Dhur Ki Bani (The speech from Supreme house). When Gurbani is spoken by any person, the Speech comes out is called Gun Bani.


Extracts from Guru Granth Sahib are called Gutkas (small books) containing sections of Gurbani. These Gutkas can vary from just a few pages to hundreds of pages and are used by the Sikhs to read these Banis on a daily basis.

Nitnem Banis[edit]

Main article: Nitnem

The Banis: Japji Sahib, Jaap Sahib, Tav-Parsad Savaiye, Chaupai Sahib and Anand Sahib should be read before sunrise daily according to the Sikh Rehat Maryada. These are recited by initiated Sikhs in the early morning (before 6am). Rehras Sahib is read in the evening (at sunset) and Kirtan Sohila before going to sleep at night.
