Hari Om
Monday is AUM-day; in search of meditation

The following are some verses from the Sikh holy text Granth Sahib which indicate the importance of meditation and japa. This demonstrates yet again, that at the highest level, all philosophies reach a similar conclusion. 

Those who meditate on God attain salvation. For them, the cycle of birth and death is eliminated (Guru Granth Sahib Ji, 11).

The performance of countless millions of other devotions is not even equal to one devotion to the Name of God (Guru Granth Sahib Ji, 1163).

Intuitive understanding, wisdom, cleverness, glory, beauty, pleasure, wealth and honor, all comforts, bliss, happiness, and salvation, O Nanak, appear by chanting the Name of God (Guru Granth Sahib Ji, 1323).

There is no other place of rest, none at all, except Naam, the Name of God. One attains success and salvation. All tasks perfectly resolves (Guru Granth Sahib Ji, 1341).
