Sikhism's holy scripture, the Guru Granth Sahib, has 1430 pages respectfully referred to as Ang, or part of the whole. The Sikh code of conduct advises every Sikh to regularly read the entire scripture of Guru Granth Sahib. In Sikhism, devotional reading is known as paath. Two main approaches to reading the entire paath of Guru Granth Sahib outlined in code of conduct document Sikh Reht Maryada (SRM) are formally known as:
- Akhand Paath (formal uninterrupted) - A complete reading of Guru Granth Sahib without interruption can be accomplished in as little as 48 hours when reading is done with team members. Akhand paath is read for special occasions and life events.
- Sadharan Paath (formal ordinary) - An entire reading of Guru Granth Sahib can be accomplished in a week or two by reading with a team and taking breaks as needed. Reading alone on a daily basis can take anywhere from about eight weeks to a year depending on the schedule followed.
- Sehaj Paath (informal easy) - To suit individual ability, there are a variety of informal easy ways to go about reading an entire paath alone or with group, in one or more locations, from one or more volumes, making use of translations if need be, or even reading online.
