Having listened to some katha over time, I understand that we should all try to do the 5 Bani in morning, and Rehraas in evening and Kirtan Sohila before sleep.

All the Bani have to some extent (but not exclusively), their own purpose/meaning for why we should do them

I understand Chaupai Sahib helps with 'protection' throughout the day; that Anand Sahib helps for peace of mind;  Kirtan Sohila is for protection overnight and for protection when we die.

Can anyone summarise more about why we should do the other Bani, and what we would lack in our lives if we missed any of the individual Bani in our routine?

I'm not sure if I can answer your question exactly but I remember hearing the purpose and structure of Nitnem in Katha:

Japji Sahib - explains who/what Akaal Purkh is, the nature

Jaap Sahib - Ustat of Akaal Purkh

Tva Prasad Saviye - upon hearing the Ustat of Akaal Purkh, the greatness, one is overcome with Bairaag

Chaupai Sahib - upon feeling/realising this Bairaag (and our position in this Sansaar), a Benti is needed

Anand Sahib - This one is self-explanatory when the above is taken into account

 

From this we can see how one Bani leads on to the next, and how it creates the frame of mind a Gursikh should have.

Sorry I couldn't provide more detail.

 

Gurbar Akaal!

This is quite interesting what you posted, not heard if it that way. 

But not clear to me how Anand Sahib Ji follows on from Chaupai Sahib Ji. 

And can you share your knowledge in Rehraas Sahib Ji please?

that protection and peace of mind stuff is subjective. missing links and all that, if youre looking for what to do with this bani and what this or that bani does. theres no answer

From what I recall about Anand Sahib...so when we do the benti (Chaupai Sahib), one realises the Divine Love within but also the prem Satguru has. The individual is assured that by coming under Satguru's Sharan and following the path of Gursikhi, all their affairs will be resolved. Through doing the Panj Baniyaan our Prem, Sharda, and Bhaavna is increased...and we should realise how forunate we are that we have actually have Gurbani and that Maharaaj has already done Kirpa. In this alone, there is a sense of Anand, but also in the wider context (given what's contained in the previous 4 Bani's and now in Anand Sahib) we again realise that Satguru can lead us to infinite bliss...Anand.

Hope that makes sense.

My knowledge on Rehraas Sahib is textbook, I will get back to you ji.

all 5 are used to make amrit ,

all five replenish that effect on a daily basis ,

all five together are your shield against Kalyug's bad effects

just as leaving one of the panj piarey out stops the representation of Guru ji's body (Guru Panth), leaving nitnem banian out stops it being Guru ji's respected rehit , what is important to Him above us as individuals .

Japji Sahib resets your focus , and reminds you of the steps needed to achieve mission

Jaap Sahib reconnects you to the bismaad of Akal Purakh's attributes/action - gives you freedom from Moh 

Tav Prasad Sawaiyae shows the emptiness of worldy position and image  - breaks the back of ahankar

Kabio Bach Benti Chaupai asks lovingly for help  from Akal Purakh connects us to that knowledge that Guru ji is always angsang

Anand Sahib shows us how to operate , how to be in this world , how to have sat, santokh and vichar in our daily lives .

without any one of these we lose an element of the gunns we supposed to cultivate , and invite the displeasure of our Guru ji  - is it worth the risk ?

    • Shalom Sri Akal... I mean, Sat Sri Akal, fellow Sikh brothers and sisters. 😅
    • That happened to me once. I did an additional Jap Ji Sahib for a few days. It was an accident. Make amends according to your conscience, and move on.
    • There is simply no reason to do agan bhet (tribute to the fire). There are ways of repairing books. (Yeah, I know Gutka Sahib is not a mere book, but I'm just talking about the technology of binding.) I have no clue why your soul doesn't agree to do path on that Gutka Sahib. Do you think it has been sullied? Even if you wrote Gurbani on something that was ritually impure, that would make it pure: ਤਰ ਤਾਰਿ ਅਪਵਿਤ੍ਰ ਕਰਿ ਮਾਨੀਐ ਰੇ ਜੈਸੇ ਕਾਗਰਾ ਕਰਤ ਬੀਚਾਰੰ ॥ ਭਗਤਿ ਭਾਗਉਤੁ ਲਿਖੀਐ ਤਿਹ ਊਪਰੇ ਪੂਜੀਐ ਕਰਿ ਨਮਸਕਾਰੰ ॥੨॥ The palmyra palm tree is considered as impure and so are deemed its leaves to be. But if the Lord's praise be written on it, we worship it and bow before it. p1293   Similarly, Guest Komal, for whatever you think the pages of the Gutka Sahib became "impure" by falling on the ground, it is still pure. Get it out of your head. The very Gurbani you're reciting says so. This is not to say that you should throw dirt on purpose on a Gutka sahib. It is only to say you shouldn't burn a Gutka for your mistake.
    • 1. Beggars can't be choosers. I'll take what we can get. I'm actually fine with numbers.  Yeah, so many of them have no clue what Gurbani says, but as long as they, in their minds, "ਮੰਨ" Guru Granth Sahib ji, that's good enough for me. Because who am I to say I'm any better than them? ਹਉ ਅਪਰਾਧੀ ਗੁਨਹਗਾਰ ਹਉ ਬੇਮੁਖ ਮੰਦਾ॥ ਚੋਰੁ ਯਾਰੁ ਜੂਆਰਿ ਹਉ ਪਰ ਘਰਿ ਜੋਹੰਦਾ॥ I am a criminal, a sinner, evil and apostate. I am a thief, adulterer; gambler who always keeps his eye upon other's household. Vaar Bhai Gurdas ji 36, Pauri 21   2. I'm pleased to be part of a Panth which encouraged people to join it for the love of Guru Nanak ji, instead of being forced to (by various means) like the Abrahamics.   3. If you're in the company of non-practicing Sikhs, they'll generally let you do your thing (Nitnem, Reharas, whatever). It's not like you're asking "Hey, mind if I do Namaz?" Or "I'm fasting for Ramadan". You're part of the same religion, though they're not strict about it. 4. What the Mullahs do is, first they get you into their religion. Then they indoctrinate the kids into Jihad. Why can't we do the same (indoctrinate into Bhagti, not Jihad)?
    • But that's not what he was saying. He was saying that certain among us not only compromised with maryada while working for the new masters, but also -during off hours,  -after retiring from service, and -worst of all, passed on those compromises to following generations as a kind of baseline   The only true baseline for maryada is the maryada of Guru Gobind Singh ji.
