Upon entering the Diwan hall (where the Guru Granth Sahib is present):

    • Fold both your hands and walk slowly.
    • Bow humbly and touch your forehead to the ground out of respect for the Guru Granth Sahib.
    • As you bow, place your offering respectfully before the Guru, it may be money, a flower, or a word of thanks
    • Any sincere expression of gratitude is equally acceptable to the Guru
    • After bowing and offering, sit in the Sangat (the congregation) quietly without disturbing others.
    • Usually men sit on one side and women on the other side.
    • Sit comfortably and peacefully, the cross-legged position is commonly used, but do not point your feet in the direction of the Guru Granth Sahib.
    • Do not talk or chew gum.

The usual sequence of events (a service) in the Gurdwara are

    • You will not be expected to say anything. You will have to join the Ardas (equivalent to Lord’s prayer). To join in the Ardas:
    • Stand straight with folded hands and think of the Guru.
    • Sing together Thoo Thakur Tum Peh Ardas

    • Then sit quietly. The person sitting behind the Guru Granth Sahib will read the Hukam, the Guru’s message or Order to the Sangat (congregation).
