If u have bani memorised and u have ur kesh covered why not? I sometimes recite small banis whilst showering, its better than thinking about worldly nonsense lol

Do you think Nitnem should be done that way?

Or just any Gurbani for the joy that Gurbani brings period?

The ideal Gursikh would be able to do Bhagti even in the most harshest times. 

I'm all for Bhagti 24 hrs a day. What I'm saying is while showering giving proper respect and focus on accomplishing Shudh Nitnem. Not sure I used the right word there. 

Like. I've done Aikido in the shower. I've done practice sword cuts in the shower. If it was the depth of my focus in training that'd be kinda limited. Not saying I didn't do a good cut, or have a great experience, but is that the same as getting clean first, dressed in your particular attire, sitting with full focus and doing extremely focused Nitnem?

I do Simran and Kirtan in the shower all the time. Just asking the op and subsequent posters, do you mean do your Nitnem in the shower? You'd need on demand hot water.

Actually it depends on the Sikh.

Akjs believe that nitnem must be done sitting all in one go. And must be done outloud similar to during amrit sinchaar.

But thankfully I wasn't told this by the panj cuz I do my nitnem whilst driving. Not ideal but what can you do?

Dear All,

SSA. I have a question. Can we do Paath during taking a bath? 

Of course it can. Just like Naam Jaap can be done anywhere at any time. God is All, nothing and no place is holy. Our bodies are Gods temple, we have chakras, the infinite pools of energy in our temple. You can do paath, you can talk to god, do naam simran when youre in the bath, walking, sitting etc. When you're working, you're doing seva so its naam anyway.

From what I have heard, Doing ‘Gur Mantar’ or ‘Mool Mantar’ or reading other Baanee while doing ishnaan is necessary. But, you can only start your Nitnem after your Ishnaan is complete and after you have changed your kacherra. 
 

🙏🏻 :)

AKJ does not believe that doing nitnem out loud is a must. I was told by panj (AKJ) that nitnem should be done aloud in the beginning stages, so the mind is focused; once surti is strong, nitnem is encouraged to do in surti, or bani read aloud, and surti should be engaged in Naam Simran simultaneously.

 

OP guru Ji says Naam Simran should be done 24/7:

ਮਃ ੪ ॥
Fourth Mehla:

ਗੁਰ ਸਤਿਗੁਰ ਕਾ ਜੋ ਸਿਖੁ ਅਖਾਏ ਸੁ ਭਲਕੇ ਉਠਿ ਹਰਿ ਨਾਮੁ ਧਿਆਵੈ ॥
One who calls himself a Sikh of the Guru, the True Guru, shall rise in the early morning hours and meditate on the Lord's Name.

ਉਦਮੁ ਕਰੇ ਭਲਕੇ ਪਰਭਾਤੀ ਇਸਨਾਨੁ ਕਰੇ ਅੰਮ੍ਰਿਤ ਸਰਿ ਨਾਵੈ ॥
Upon arising early in the morning, he is to bathe and cleanse himself in the pool of nectar.

ਉਪਦੇਸਿ ਗੁਰੂ ਹਰਿ ਹਰਿ ਜਪੁ ਜਾਪੈ ਸਭਿ ਕਿਲਵਿਖ ਪਾਪ ਦੋਖ ਲਹਿ ਜਾਵੈ ॥
Following the Instructions of the Guru, he is to chant the Name of the Lord, Har, Har. All sins, misdeeds and negativity shall be erased.

ਫਿਰਿ ਚੜੈ ਦਿਵਸੁ ਗੁਰਬਾਣੀ ਗਾਵੈ ਬਹਦਿਆ ਉਠਦਿਆ ਹਰਿ ਨਾਮੁ ਧਿਆਵੈ ॥
Then, at the rising of the sun, he is to sing Gurbani; whether sitting down or standing up, he is to meditate on the Lord's Name.

ਜੋ ਸਾਸਿ ਗਿਰਾਸਿ ਧਿਆਏ ਮੇਰਾ ਹਰਿ ਹਰਿ ਸੋ ਗੁਰਸਿਖੁ ਗੁਰੂ ਮਨਿ ਭਾਵੈ ॥
One who meditates on my Lord, Har, Har, with every breath and every morsel of food - that GurSikh becomes pleasing to the Guru's Mind.

ਜਿਸ ਨੋ ਦਇਆਲੁ ਹੋਵੈ ਮੇਰਾ ਸੁਆਮੀ ਤਿਸੁ ਗੁਰਸਿਖ ਗੁਰੂ ਉਪਦੇਸੁ ਸੁਣਾਵੈ ॥
That person, unto whom my Lord and Master are kind and compassionate - upon that GurSikh, the Guru's Teachings are bestowed.

ਜਨੁ ਨਾਨਕੁ ਧੂੜਿ ਮੰਗੈ ਤਿਸੁ ਗੁਰਸਿਖ ਕੀ ਜੋ ਆਪਿ ਜਪੈ ਅਵਰਹ ਨਾਮੁ ਜਪਾਵੈ ॥੨॥
Servant Nanak begs for the dust of the feet of that GurSikh, who himself chants the Naam, and inspires others to chant it. ||2||

Guru Raam Daas Ji in Raag Gauree - 305

 

The first pangti Maharaj tells us to jap Naam, then Maharaj says to have an ishnaan at Amritsar, then to jap naam sitting down. A big lesson is given here. guru sahib has mentioned three "different types of Simran":

1. upon waking up at amritvela, the moment your eyes open, you should start your Simran. 

2. Maharaj then says to have an ishnaan at Amritsar. How can we have an ishnaan at Amritsar if we don't live near harmandir sahib? Maharaj has given us the blessing of having an ishnaan equivalent to that at Amritsar if were are japing Naam or reciting bani at the same time. Why is harmandir sahib Sarovar considered Amritsar? Because there is bani 24/7 there and the water absorbs that bani, in the same way, if we have ishnaan at amritvela while reciting Naam or bani, then Maharaj has told us that due to paras kalaa of Naam bani, the water will absorb naam. It will be as though you have had an Ishaan at Amritsar! Dhan Dhan Guru Raam Daas Ji!

3. then, to jap naam sitting down for at least two hours, all sins will be washed away. 

Then we will recite our nitnem at sunrise and continue to jap naam all day. Maharaj has mentioned Naam Simran 5 times in this Shabad; Naam Simran is that important. every ang mentions Naam in Guru Granth Sahib, every ang! Unfortunately, the panth has forgotten Naam Simran and are just happy to read their panj baniyan, lol. 

But to answer your question: yes, according to guru Raam daas Ji, you should.  

These amolak bachan were told to daas by panj pyaare.
