Akand Paath (akhand = uninterrupted, without break; paath = reading) is non-stop, continuous recital of the Guru Granth Sahib Ji from beginning to end.
Such a recital must be completed within 48 hours. The entire Holy Guru Granth Sahib, 1430 large pages, is read through in a continuous ceremony. This reading must go on day and night, without a moment’s intermission. As the reciters take turns at saying scripture’s they must ensure that no break occurs, they change places at given intervals, one picks the line from their predecessor’s lips and continues.
A Akhand Paath can be done at the Gurdwara or at Home
