Every Sikh is expected to get up in the morning before dawn. After taking a bath he or she should meditate on the Name of God.
Rise early in the morning, and chant the Naam; worship and adore the Lord, night and day. Anxiety shall not afflict you, O Nanak, and your misfortune shall vanish.
– Guru Granth Sahib p. 255
The following compositions are recited every day:
- Morning: Japji Sahib, Jaap Sahib, Swaye, Chaupai Sahib and Anand Sahib
- Evening: Rehras
- Before Bed: Sohila Sahib
A Sikh is required to attend Gurdwara, the Sikh Temple, as a part of their daily routine or as often as possible.
