Anand Sahib PDF - Overview
The Anand Sahib is a collection of hymns in Sikhism, written in the Ramkali Raag by Guru Amar Das Ji, the third Guru of the Sikhs. It appears on the pages 917 to 922 in Guru Granth Sahib Ji. The word Anand means complete happiness. It is a part of the Nitnem which are read by Amritdhari Sikhs before dawn.
There are two versions of Anand Sahib: one which extends 40 pauries and one shorter version often called Chhota Sahib which comprises the first five pauries and then skips to the last one. This shorter version of it is usually recited at the closing ceremonies before Ardas. The Chhota Sahib is included at the end of Rehras Sahib.
