The Bani is important in the Sikh tradition from many aspects. It is central to a Sikh’s daily recital and reflection, besides being a part of the ceremony of khande-ki-pahul (Khalsa initiation ceremony). It also finds mention in every major rahitnama (documents recording Sikh code of conduct) that prescribes daily Sikh routine.
