Sampat path is a variation of akhand path in which the reading of every single complete hymn of the Guru Granth Sahib is followed by the reading of a predetermined sabda or sJoka ( from the Guru Granth. Sahib itself) which is thus repeated throughout the recitation. The path is performed in a curtained cabin so that the reading is audible outside the cabin but the path! (reader) and the Scripture are not in the view of the audience. In the Hindu tradition, a mantra, prefixed and suffixed by another mystic word or mantra, is called sampat mantra. Literally, a sampat is a casket in which devout Hindus keep their idols or stone images called thakurs. The sampat path obviously takes double the time of an akhand path, or even more. Since such a path is contrary to the Sikh tenets, it never became an accepted form and is no longer in common vogue.
*Added to this is will be gurbani shabads that would be played along.
