What is the importance of Meditation in Sikhism? How to do it?

Meditation or Simran holds great importance in Sikhism. Simran refers to the remembrance of God by continuous recital of His name (Waheguru). It is said in Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji that by doing Simran, a person is purified and attains a calm state of mind which allows one to concentrate on the 'Qualities' of God. Thus, it is a process to allow one to 'Connect' to the 'Creator' and realize His qualities. Sikhs prefer the name 'Waheguru' and early morning is the preferred time to meditate.
