An Akhand Path is the continuous, front to back, reading of the Siri Guru Granth Sahib (for more about the Siri Guru Granth Sahib, read below). This reading is an important and extremely meaningful meditative practice for Sikhs. Akhand Paths are read in honor of major life events like marriages, funerals, and births. They are important community events and conducted either by a team of granthis who take turns reading for long periods of time or by community members who take turns reading in hour-long reading slots
The honor and blessing of reading in an Akhand Path has been so important to Sikhs, that there are stories of times where there were battles waging around them, or they were being sieged by the enemy and readers would not stop until they were shot and killed while reading and another would take their place, so as not to break the sound current before Akhand Path was completed.
