Readers Respond: Suggest Hymns and Shabads Appropriate for a Sikh Funeral

Responses: 1


Hymns or shabads sung during a Sikh funeral are selected to offer solace to the bereaved by placing emphasis on the departed soul’s mergence with the divine. Please make an offer of consolation and suggest line (tuk) or verse from the scripture of the Guru Granth Sahib which is appropriate for a Sikh funeral ceremony. Please be sure to include the original Gurmukhi, a brief English explanation of the meaning, and where it is found in the Guru Granth Sahib or Amrit Kirtan (Sikh hymnal).
