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 shabad or salok (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.
