Gateway to Sikhism

 

Gurbani Raag: Jaijavanti


Jaijavanti was used only by Guru Tegh Bahadur for four hymns. This raga does not appear in the Ragmala but was known as Javanta as early as the 14th century. Today it is regarded as an important raga belonging to the Khainaj thata. This majestic and highly arresting raga is assigned to the night hours.

 Aroh : Sa, Re Ga Ma Pa, Ni Sa

Avroh : Sa Ni Dha Pa, Dha Ma, Re Ga Re Sa

Pakar : Re Ga Re Sa, Ni Dha Pa Re

Vadi .: Re

Samvadi : Pa

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.
