Is nitnem a ritual?

Guru Nanak Dev Jee was against religious rituals and he criticized Muslim and Hindu rituals. As Sikhs we are supposed to do nitnem every day, is that a ritual? You do the same thing every single day..

???

Bhul chuk muaff karni

It#s not my intention to offend anyone.

You eat everyday is that a ritual? You brush your teeth and bathe everyday is that a ritual? You go toilet multiple times during the day, is that a ritual?

The same way the above are a normal part of daily life, so is Nitnem abiyaas for Singhs / Kaurs of the Khalsa Panth.

Maharaj states empty rituals are useless and cant get you to Vaheguru. Remembering Vaheguru can not be a empty ritual.

why do we take showers? to be clean yea?

just as we clean out bodys with water so we are clean

In this way to purify our souls and all the ghandh we have within us, we must do paat everyday to get rid of this:)

and whatever the guru says is true, we shouldnt even think about having a negative feeling towards maharjas bachans.

it is a rirtual if you dont doit dhiaan laakae. i.e. you dont get anything from just reading bani. well you do, but you dont get mukti.... you gota put it into your life . i.e. rehet/naam. bani came from naam.

surti de naal kamaao. naam japo!

(all above me included! :) )

oh yea...

bani...

in guru naanak dev jis seheskriti says a bit bout the brahmans then says...

........subh phorkat nischae karmang, koho naanak nischao dhiaavai......

meaning

all zaroori kum-nischae (ritriules) is crappie

then...

koho naanak.... nischao(means dhiaan laakae) diaavai.

the pauri ends in ...bin satgur baat na pavai

like ppl said..its about learning...no point in doing prayers if u don't learn and act on them. So why pray? To remind ureself of the message everyday so u can act upon it....its like a textbook....read it everyday u remember more and learn more cos prayer has deep meanings that everytime u read it u get different level of understanding...
