Here are the bits by Bhai Gurdas about nitnem, interestingly Jaap instead of Japji (which could not refer to Jaap Sahib as the vaars were written during earlier Gurus times).

ਸਹਜਿ ਸਮਾਧਿ ਅਗਾਧਿ ਵਿਚਿ ਇਕ ਮਨਿ ਹੋਇ ਗੁਰ ਜਾਪੁ ਜਪੰਦੇ।
By putting their mind in the unfathomable God through deep concentration, they remember Guru, the God by reciting Jaapu (Ji)

ਸੰਝੈ ਸੋਦਰੁ ਗਾਵਣਾ ਮਨ ਮੇਲੀ ਕਰਿ ਮੇਲਿ ਮਿਲੰਦੇ।
They sing the Sodar in the evening and heartily associate with one another.

ਰਾਤੀ ਕੀਰਤਿ ਸੋਹਿਲਾ ਕਰਿ ਆਰਤੀ ਪਰਸਾਦ ਵੰਡੰਦੇ।
Having recited the Sohila and made supplication at night they distribute sacred food (prasad).

And elsewhere in Pauri 38:

ਸੋਦਰੁ ਆਰਤੀ ਗਾਵੀਐ ਅੰਮ੍ਰਿਤ ਵੇਲੇ ਜਾਪੁ ਉਚਾਰਾ।
Sodar and Arati were sung and in the ambrosial hours Jaapu was recited.

so Sodar Rehras and Arti should both be performed for nitnem, however many gurdwaras seem to ignore this as does sgpc maryada!

Mukatnama in Sau Sakhi, ascribed to Bhai Sahib Singh, also gives hint at Japji Sahib being the morning bani but encourages one to read Aarta generally as a part of nitnem as well. These are the only two sources (Bhai Gurdas Vaaran and Mukatnama) indicating Aarti and Aarta as daily nitnem (liturgical prayers) for Sikhs.

ਖਾਵੇ ਗੁਰ ਕਾ ਨਾਮ ਜਪਿ ਜਪੁ ਪੜ੍ਹ ਲੈ ਪ੍ਰਸਾਦਿ 
A Sikh should eat after reciting (jap) the Gurus name and reciting Japji. (6th stanza)

ਨਾਮ ਸਿਮਰ ਕਰਿ ਆਰਤਾ, ਗੁਰੂ ਮਿਟਾਵੈ ਕੰਗ 
After remembering God (doing simran), one should do Aarta (by which) the Guru eradicates poverty. (11th stanza)

Roughly translated by myself.

The Mukatnama, altough not without its share of flaws, is an interesting Rahit because it refers tobacco as 'jagat jooth', forbids marrying into the same gotras (family names - one of the only Rahits that indicate this), mentions daswandh and many other Sikh terms that are not always found in other rahitnamas.

Excellent rendition. 

Somebody from the uk, please find Veer Ji and compel him to record more using a salotar for motivation. I can't take him not posting any longer. 

His channel was off to a great start. 

Continue the beating until he joins here. Please.

From what I know puratan Sikhs and many Sants read Panj Granthi. 

Sukhmani Sahib 

Shabad Hazare Pt.5


Sidh Gost

Bavan Akhri




Asa Ki Vaar

ive heard that panj granthi pothi sahib was blessed by sri Guru Hargobind sahib Maharaj when sikhs asked how to have saroop of aad sri guru granth sahib maharaj  so these were the banis prescribed by them to sikhs who desired as such 

the nitnem of puratan sikhs is quite amazing and as sant giani kartar singh jee have said "puratan Guru ke sikhan vich bare vade san"

    • Punjabi Sikh family killed in California   WIONEWS Website California | Updated: Oct 06, 2022, 10:03 (IST)     All four members of an India-origin Sikh family, including an eight-month-old girl, were found dead in an orchard in California, the Merced County sheriff said   Briefing media on Wednesday night, Merced County Sheriff Vern Warnke said a farm worker in the area found the bodies, which were found relatively close together. He said that the Department of Justice crime lab is going to probe the crime scene, adding that they "don't know all the facts yet", reports ABC News. Terming it "horribly senseless," the sheriff said they are finding out the cause of the murder. Warnke further said he spoke to the suspect, who is in custody and admitted in the hospital, but did not provide additional details.   Among the deceased are: eight-month-old Aroohi Dheri, her parents —27-year-old mother Jasleen Kaur and 36-year-old father Jasdeep Singh —, and the baby’s uncle, 39-year-old Amandeep Singh. The police said that the couple and the baby were kidnapped at gunpoint from a convenience store they own in Merced County in Northern California. The police said that the couple and the baby were kidnapped at gunpoint from a convenience store they own in Merced County in Northern California. They hailed from Harsi Pind in Hoshiarpur, Punjab. Police found out about their kidnapping after they discovered a vehicle owned by one of the family members on fire on late Monday, which led them to determine that they had been kidnapped. According to a news release, detectives received information on Tuesday morning about the accused, 48-year-old Jesus Salgado, after he used their ATM card in Atwater in Merced County. On Tuesday, the man attempted to take his own life prior to “law enforcement involvement" and is currently in critical condition receiving medical attention, the Merced County Sheriff's Office said.
    • If I'm not wrong ( I may make some mistakes in what I write in the following sentences, do cross check)  Deep Sidhu's party Waris Panjab De is made to handle issues faces by the Panth and Punjab, example ensuring electricity in villages, parchaar of Sikhi, clean water supply and so on. Amritpal Singh Sandhu is the Jathedar of the party now. He came to Punjab a few months ago and his getting this attention because of how much he is attending to Panth issues. He took Amrit  a few days ago if I'm not wrong, at Anandpur Sahib and his parchaar of Sikhi was so powerful that approximately 950 Singhs took Amrit with him. He is in the support of Khalistan as well. So because of all the issues he is talking about, it's making a big effect on the youth and people are joining him in big numbers. So because he is joining Sikhs with Sikhi, there are 2 narratives being spread about him, "he is an ISI funded agent" or he is a " Indian government agent". But in true fact, he is Vaheguru ji's Agent 😀🙏 Bhul Chuk Maf ji 🙏 Vaheguru ji ka khalsa Vaheguru ji ki fateh 
    • What I don't understand is how come he is getting all this attention? Is it something that he did or said? Or is he related to some popular personalities perhaps? Also, what is the objective of Deep Sidhu's organisation that he's said to be heading?

    • You are falling for their trap. They want us to be divided.
