Services Offered to the Sangat (Congregation)
Akhand path is the non-stop, continuous recital of the Guru Granth Sahib from beginning to end. Such a recital is normally completed within 48 hours. The entire Holy Volume, 1430 large pages, is read through in a continuous ceremony. This "ritual" is considered a very holy practice and is said to bring peace and solace to the participants and the passive listener of the recitation.
