Experience of Shabad Guru is an experience of consciousness. Shabad Guru carries a frequency. The practice of chanting or recitation of the Shabad Guru can build your quality of ether so that you are able to function in the world with grace and peace guiding your life. The embodiment of Shabad Guru is the Siri Guru Granth Sahib. A full continuous recitation of the Siri Guru Granth Sahib is called an Akhand Path.
During the meditation of a complete recitation of the Siri Guru Granth Sahib, without breaking the naad (sound current), the soul is instructed to reside in oneness with God. Akhand Paths are an incredible experience for a community or family to participate in, as the frequency of the Shabad Guru then resides around all who participate. The heart and spirit of a community’s prayer during an Akhand Path brings peace, grace, and protection for everyone. When a global community practices this technology together in prayer, it can shift the frequency on the planet and bring peace and prosperity to the world.
Guru Arjan Dev ji compiled the Adi Granth in 1604 to standardize the frequency and consciousness of the teachings, but it wasn’t until the lifetime of Guru Gobind Singh, on October 20th, 1708, that the Shabad Guru became the Siri Guru Granth Sahib, to guide, protect and inspire our soul’s journey through life. From that day onward we have celebrated Guru Gaddi Day each year, honoring the Shabad Guru embodied in the Siri Guru Granth Sahib to be our living Guru guiding our consciousness.
