Rehras[edit]

The rehras sahib is the evening prayer of the Sikhs. It is recited at the end of a working day. Its purpose is to add energy to one's being and living environments. It is intended to help with physical weakness and feelings of hopelessness, unsuccessfulness or worthlessness.

Rehiras Sahib: Five different Gurus contributed to the evening prayer Guru Nanak Dev Ji, Guru Amar Das Ji, Guru Ram Das Ji, Guru Arjan Dev ji and Guru Gobind Singh Ji. Each one enlightens another aspect of God.The Bayntee Chaopaee is Guru Gobind Singh Ji's personal prayer for protection and is said to liberate the soul. It is related to the element of water.

This evening Bani is recited by many Sikhs after a hard days work. When feeling tired, Sikhs, upon returning to home, have a wash and change into their indoor clothing and then together with the rest of their family recite this Bani. The recitation of Rehras Sahib adds energy to your body and mind. It allows you to conclude the day and thank the Almighty for the completion of another successful day. The verse speaks of the greatness of Waheguru and the ways in which ones actions will assist in attaining spiritual elevation. This Bani assists the person when he or she is weak physically,or financial,or with any other material and earthly matters. When you feel hopeless, unsuccessful or worthless, it will elevate you mentally and give you a fresh and positive view of things. Bayntee Chaopaee, which forms a part of Rehiras Sahib, is a Bani attributed to Guru Gobind Singh Ji. It is a Gurbani that is a personal prayer for physical and mental protection. It will also help liberate the mind and soul.

This Bani is a collection of hymns of five different Gurus. The Rehras as recorded in the Guru Granth Sahib Ji contains hymns of only Guru Nanak Dev Ji, Guru Amar Das Ji, Guru Ram Das Ji and Guru Arjan Dev ji. The compositions of Guru Gobind Singh Ji were added in Rehiras Sahib in the late 19th century.
