Naam means God Itself as well as Its attributes. Therefore, in Gurbani it has been emphasized whatever is created, is the manifestation of God Itself.

Naam is used in place of any descriptive/specific name of God like Ram, Krishan, Rahim, Allah, and etc. since in Nanakian philosophy no descriptive or specific name can be assigned to Transcendent God.

The term NÄm refers to the act of worship of God by Hindus and is also adopted by Sikhs. In Hinduism it is believed that God existed before the creation of the universe. The name of God is therefore beyond the language structure created by mankind.
