    At regular speed, how long does it take to recite the full 40 verses of anand Sahib? I've never heard a paath of Anand Sahib and I'm curious of it's length in relation to Jaap (not japji).

    Thanks
    Ishna

    Well, anand Sahib takes lesser time as compared to Jaap Sahib. Jaap Sahib contains complex syllables while Anand Sahib is mild to the tongue. So, the 'flow' in reciting Anand Sahib is very nice, Guru Amardass Ji's bani maintains this characteristic throughout. You'll enjoy once you recite the bani, I myself forget the watch when I read it.... :)

    Thanks Aristotle ji. Most of Gurbani has that beautiful flowing quality. I'm not very fluent with Punjabi yet, I'm still learning the difference between dental and retroflex t's and d's!

    I just realised I can just look anand Sahib up on YouTube and see how long they go for... *facepalm*

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
