Jap-Tap-Sanjam #AtoZChallenge


My affinity towards Sikhisim also grew because my Granny was a true believer in Sikhi [Constant learning].

Here is a lesson from Evening prayer from Sri Guru Granth Sahib.

ਜਪੁ ਤਪੁ ਸੰਜਮੁ ਧਰਮੁ ਨ ਕਮਾਇਆ ॥ ਸੇਵਾ ਸਾਧ ਨ ਜਾਨਿਆ ਹਰਿ ਰਾਇਆ ॥ ਕਹੁ ਨਾਨਕ ਹਮ ਨੀਚ ਕਰੰਮਾ ॥ ਸਰਣਿ ਪਰੇ ਕੀ ਰਾਖਹੁ ਸਰਮਾ|| Rehras Sahib

Jap – remembrance

Tap- penance

Sanjam – Forbearance

These words mean:

I have neither acted on the principles of Jap, Tap and Sanjam, nor have followed the teachings of the guru O God; my deeds are unbecoming; I have sought Your sanctuary; please save my honor.
