Ishnaan or panj ishnaan are means to awaken your mind and make it attentive towards meditation and gurbani. If you cannot do these for some reason, it's fine as long as your are alert while meditating and reciting banis.

On the other hand if ishnaan/panj ishnaan don't make your alert and active, then these are nothing more than mere rituals and don't serve any purpose.

Panj Ishnaan

guru ji has given us panj ishnaan when we do not have time for a full ishnaan.

simply washing your 2 hands 2feet and face which adds up to 5 thats why its called 5 (panj) ishnaan and after you have done this then you can touch your gutka and do paath.
