Sach Khand

Sach Khand, or Sac Khand, ("The Realm Of Truth") is the Sikh concept of joining with God. It is achieved by the Guru's Grace and through meditation and "Simran", remembering the Divine.

The term is also used for the room in a Gurdwara where the Guru Granth Sahib rests at night, and in the cosmology of Surat Shabd Yoga (Sound Meditation) as the home of souls.
