Gur Sikh Jio. Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh.
Of late there have been some people who have tried to redefine what Jap is and this is not in line with Siri Guru Granth Sahib teachings.
Karminder Singh in one of his parchar (audio included below) says that Sikhs have misconceived or misunderstood or being led to misunderstand what Jup ਜਪੁ or Naam ਨਾਮੁ means.
He crudely states
Jup is not chanting. That has to be cleared out of our minds. We have reduced, relegated, downtrodden, trampled upon, stepped on….the process of naam jupnaa to chanting. Guru Nanak came all the way, for 70 years, through 10 Gurus, to tell us to chant? I’m having trouble with that.
He claims that
- Jap or Jup ਜਪੁ is not chanting
- Naam ਨਾਮੁ is not Name (as translated).
There is no substance in these claims and they are misleading. We shall show this in the ensuing analysis.
