Gateway to Sikhism

 

Bhat Jaita

Bhat Jaita, was a devout Sikh of the time of Guru Arjan. He had received initiation at the hands of the Guru at Amritsar. Returning home, he, along with his companions, Bhai Nanda and Bhai Piraga, had ceased observing the caste rites and rituals. Their family priests chided them for their departing from the customs of their forefathers. They, in the words of Bhai Mani Singh, Sikhdn di Bhagat Maid, quipped: "You yourselves have been telling us that religious rites arc not to be performed in a house freshly defiled by a birth or a death. Since we have met our Guru, death has taken place in our household of ignorance and new knowledge has taken birth. Customary rituals have therefore become irrelevant."

The etymology of the term 'gurdwara' is from the words 'Gur (ਗੁਰ)' (a reference to the Sikh Gurus) and 'Dwara (ਦੁਆਰਾ)' (gateway in Gurmukhi), together meaning 'the gateway through which the Guru could be reached'. Thereafter, all Sikh places of worship came to be known as gurdwaras.
