Panthic Weekly: Understanding the Sikh Rehat Maryada (2166 words)
Some people make it an issue that in the morning one should also read ‘Benti Chaupai’ and ‘Anand Sahib’ and that the Sikh Rehat Maryada is saying one should only recite Jap Ji Sahib, Jaap Sahib and Sawayyas.
No one is being chastised for reading Anand Sahib or Benti Chaupai, rather it is good but it is not compulsory, according to the Sikh Rehat Maryada.
Some start with ‘Har jug jug bhagat upaaya…’ and others start with ‘dukh daaru sukh rog payiaa…’ Some include extra Dohiras after Benti Chaupai in the Rehraas and some have extra shabads on the end compared to the Rehras prescribed in Sikh Rehat Maryada.
