~Simran~

In Hindu and yogic philosophy, simran is the act of profound reflection that leads to awareness of the true nature of the Self. Simran is a Punjabi word that comes from the Sanskrit word, smarana, meaning “reminiscence,” “remembrance,” “mental recitation” and “calling upon the name of God.”

In Sikhism, simran is the act of reciting or repeating the name of God in remembrance. It is believed that practicing simran purifies the believer, freeing him/her from attachment and helping attain mukti (salvation or spiritual liberation).
