Tav-Prasad Savaiye (Punjabi: :ਤ੍ਵਪ੍ਰਸਾਦਿ ਸ੍ਵਯੇ) is a short composition of 10 stanzas which is part of daily liturgy among Sikhs. It was penned down by Guru Gobind Singh and is part of his composition: Akal Ustat (The praise of God).[1] This is an important composition which is read during Amrit Sanchar. This Bani appears in the Dasam Granth on pages 13 to 15, starting from Stanza 21 of Akal Ustat.


Tavprasad means with thy grace.[2] This composition strongly rejects Idolatry, Pilgrimages, Grave Worshiping, Samadhis of Yogis and other ritualistic beliefs in Hinduism, Jainism and Islam so thereby included in Nitnem, daily morning prayers of Sikhs. It is recited after completing Jaap Sahib.

It is started from Sravag Sudh Samuh Sidhan Ke and ends up to Koor Kriya Urjheo Sab Hi Jag. Among many famous quotes of Tav Parsad Savaiye, Jin Prem Kiyo Tin Hi Prabhu Paayo is widely quoted by different scholars of different religions. In Dialogues on Universal Responsibility and Education, Dalai Lama quoted it, while giving lessons of love.[3]
