The ritual of offering Bhog in a Gurudwara

The ritual of offering Bhog in a Gurudwara

It is usually utilized to denoting a funeral service. The Karah Prasad that is distributed at the end of any assembly service might also be denoted as Bhog. An occasion of sorrow or joy, prompting a Sikh householder to follow up the path of the Guru Granth Sahib Ji, prefer by his family or himself. 

Actually ,there is nothing offered to Guru Granth Sahib, again i would love to say its not offering , and as you are saying it meal its not a food, there you could utilize word “Deg”( ਦੇਗ).

Deg is just for sangat (gathering of individuals into gurdwara ) under the cover of Guru Granth Sahib and that is just the brotherhood symbol ,mean, sit together eaten together as well as eliminate discrimination, casteism etc.

Bhog in a Gurudwara

Sikhs offer food to Guru Granth Sahib, just like hindus offer food to the deities. But Sikhs will never accept this. They will try to cover this up with word play like, cleansing mind, kirpan is the guru etc. type answers. But in real life timeline they are doing the similar rituals like hindus, like fanning, sleeping, waking, serving cloth(rumala) to the holy book.

Almighty eaten it when the needy puts it in his mouth n thanks him for it.

“Gareeb da muh Guru di Golak”

Similarly its accepted by God when his Sikh /Bhakt eats it too…

Also its accepted by the Almighty when anybody else eats it and then praise/thank him or his bhakts for it. (If it connects you to the Almighty its awesome)

That’s the Principle of sikhism. Almighty lives everywhere in nature, in humanity, in non living or living. Serving all generated by him is serving him.

The word Bhog is applied in the Sardar religion for ritual that are pretty much fulfilled along with the reading of the Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji of the chunk. The holy scripture reading is done on a regular basis with a readers staff at a key worship centre. The community generally relating ‘Bhog’ to the uninterrupted and complete reading of the holy book (Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji). This normally taking days to complete through the relay of readers who working round-the-clock. This is also denoted the Akhand Path. This kind of path and hence the ‘Bhog’ as it coming to its end, could be performed in conjunction with anniversaries, weddings, obsequies and other occasions, when the family or a worship community probably considering such read on to be suitable one.

Bhog also taking place when a family or the community decided to go for a slower read in of the holy scripture (Sahaj Path). The reading is done as and when situations permit. The ‘Bhog’ comes at its end and has to be thrilled in a single session, without any break. Another possibilty is the Saptahik Path, in which the scripture reading has to be completed within the week. The Sahaj Path might continuing for months.

Sikhs offered meal to Guru Granth Sahib, just like hindus served meals to the deities. But Sikhs would never accept this. They would try hard to cover this up with word play like, kirpan is the guru, cleansing mind. type answers. But in reality they are doing the similar rituals like hindus, like offering cloth(rumala) to the holy book, waking, sleeping, and fanning.

It began from many 1000s years ago.. Humans used to prepared meal and give it to their leaders and elders to show humility. Humility as in as no one could just eaten from the meal while it was being made.. or.. just giving it out before its time.. e.g. to assuring nothing has been miss out so.. we dont go off their own backs and say now EYYYEEE wanted to do xyz…i wanted to give out the food.. its basically a humble manner to have care for the meal.. so basically we did not eaten like animals kinda stuff.


Sikhs do the similar. its not offered to Almighty but asking for god to bless it.. then the kirpaan peirces the blessed meal.. e.g. once something is pure, we could not think we are pure to just go and take it using the grubby hands.. and then it could be given to the humans, by someone else. The human giving it out, is the last to have it. The bhorg is a bhorg of effort put into the meal making.. and basically the ceremony.

As the Amritdhari Sikh, I personally adhere to the vegetarian diet in alignment with the spiritual beliefs and commitment to live a life of compassion and mindfulness. Within the Sikh community, I encounter humans with varying dietary choices, including both non-vegetarians and vegetarians. However, I’ve observed that numerous who are deeply spiritually align tend to follow up the vegetarian lifestyle.
