Anand Sahib: This Bani is part of the Nitnem (prayers) which are read by Sikhs in the morning. This Bani was written by Guru Amar Das Ji, the third Guru of the Sikhs and forms part of the 5 Banis that are recited daily by
Sikhs. The Bani appears on pages 917 to 922 of Guru Granth Sahib, the Sikh Holy Scripture. It is said that the person who recites this Holy Bani daily with dedication, attention, and comprehension, will achieve Anand (Complete Happiness or Bliss) in life. Anand Sahib is also chanted at all religious ceremonies of the Sikhs, irrespective of the nature of event, whether it is a marriage or death. In the beautiful composition and with the Grace of Sri Guru Amar Das Ji, the mind and soul of a true Sikh remains steadfast and goal oriented in all circumstances of life. In an awakened mind, intoxicated
with the Nectar of Naam, one is always tuned with the Sweet Will of the Lord in all the ups and downs of life, in pain and pleasure alike. His is a mind which is ever luminous with Guru Consciousness and is in perpetual
intoxication of Naam and Amrit Bani, accepting without question the Hukam of the Almighty. All Dukh (Pain) and Sukh (Pleasure) appear as one to the devoted Sikh of the Guru.
