Thank you for asking such a relevant question.
There is no reference to AKHAND PATH in Guru Granth Sahib ji.
This practice, ritualistic in nature, is started some time afterwards by Sikh Clergy for reasons known only to them. All associated rituals are also initiated by the clergy only for the purpose known to them. BANI enshrined in Sri Guru Granth Sahib asks the reader to pause, but the AAKHAND PAATH, as prescribed, does not allow any pauses. This practice directly contradicts the instructions of Gurbani.
jyot dhoop coconut signify nothing during an akhand paath It is a karam kand
Akhand path was started during the time of Guru Gobind Singh ji during those days sikh’s were many times in forest or less populated areas and they used to carry the smaller Guru Granth Sahib Swaroop or mini swaroops’ in their pagaris when ever they had a longer break they used to do Akhand path. But now it as become unnecessary practice. In these modern days when we have all the facilities we can our self do saheej path. Gurfateh
