Japji Sahib Ji

* Japji Sahib, is the first sacred prayer, that appears at the beginning of the main holy scripture of the Sikhs, the Guru Granth Sahib Ji.
*Japji Sahib Ji  contains the whole essence of Sikh philosophy.
* It was composed by the first spiritual guide of the Sikhs, Guru Nanak Dev, the founder of the faith.
* It is composed in Gurumukhi.
* It consists of the Mool Mantar, an opening Salok, followed by a set of 38 Pauris or hymns and a final closing Salok at the end of this composition.
* It is regarded amongst the most important Bani or 'set of verses' by the Sikhs, as it is first Bani in Nitnem.
* The Japji sets out to challenge superstitions and rituals that hitherto had served as mankind's outlet for devotion to god. It poses the question of what is true worship.
* It proposes that the only true form of worship is acceptance of god's will and to remain one with nature.
* All mantras, holy foods, prophecies and pilgrimages are irrelevant.
* The word ‘Jap’ means to ‘recite’/‘to ‘chant’/'to stay focused onto'.
* ‘Sahib Ji’ are the words that are used to show respect.
