Nām Simaran, Nām Japan (Pañjābī, ‘remembrance of the name’, ‘repetition of the name’). Remembrance of God, a term common to Hindu and Sikh devotion. Whether silently or aloud, through singing hymns or with the help of a rosary, God's name must be consciously repeated. Sikhs focus their mind in meditation on the word Vāhiguru. By continuous concentration upon the Nām, one absorbs God's qualities.
