|Manji Sahib||Bangla Sahib||Sis Ganj Sahib|
The filth of our bad actions is removed by listening and practising the teachings of Katha. Katha has an equally important place in Sikhi, as it helps to preserve our heritage as it reminds of our moral duties as Sikhs to live up to the high standards set by our forefathers. Katha is the verbal explanation/discourse of Gurbani and our great history. Katha has been an integral part of Sikh practice since the revealed inception of Sikhism by Sri Guru Nanak Dev Jee. Sri Guru Nanak Dev Jee and great Sikhs of his era performed Katha and it was and is still through Katha that many people gain knowledge about Sikhism and become enlightened. Katha is both a spiritual and historical discourse, it endows the listener with spiritual and worldly knowledge, and helps Sikhs along the path of Sikhi.
