Sikh History - Bards and Bhatts - Contributions to SGGS Ji - Bhatt Banis

The links below provide information about Bards / Bhatts and their contributions.

Bhatt Bani (the hymns by the bards) comprising twenty pages is incorporated in the concluding part of Adi Granth. The Bhatts are supposed to be the descendants of Koshish Rishi and are linked with the Sarshat Brahmins. It is a fact that almost all the eleven Bhatts belonged to Punjab and were residents of Sultanpur Lodhi (district Kapurthala) where Guru Nanak had served in the Modikhana for 13 years. According to Bhatt chronicles they were sons or nephews of Bhikha and Toda Bhatts. 


The Bhatts loved the Gurus, treated them as revered Avtars and the accepted continuity of the same light in each one of them. According to them, it wa the same spirit which started with Guru Nanak and was passed on to the success Gurus. Their forms might have been different, but the spirit was the same. A important point which crops up at this stage is that, even though the Sikh culture accepts oneness of the spirit of the Gurus, the Bhatts saw Guru Nanak as the incarnation of Vishnu and the successor Gurus as the incarnation of Guru Nanak. The point which makes it more significant is that it was for the first time that this recognition was recorded in Sikh literature and the full credit goes to Bhatts.

Sikhism's holy scripture, the Guru Granth Sahib, has 1430 pages respectfully referred to as Ang, or part of the whole. The Sikh code of conduct advises every Sikh to regularly read the entire scripture of Guru Granth Sahib. In Sikhism, devotional reading is known as paath. Two main approaches to reading the entire paath of Guru Granth Sahib outlined in code of conduct document Sikh Reht Maryada (SRM) are formally known as:
  • Akhand Paath (formal uninterrupted) - A complete reading of Guru Granth Sahib without interruption can be accomplished in as little as 48 hours when reading is done with team members. Akhand paath is read for special occasions and life events.
  • Sadharan Paath (formal ordinary) - An entire reading of Guru Granth Sahib can be accomplished in a week or two by reading with a team and taking breaks as needed. Reading alone on a daily basis can take anywhere from about eight weeks to a year depending on the schedule followed.
Devotional reading of paath make also be conducted in a less formal manner commonly known as:
  • Sehaj Paath (informal easy) - To suit individual ability, there are a variety of informal easy ways to go about reading an entire paath alone or with group, in one or more locations, from one or more volumes, making use of translations if need be, or even reading online.

Gurbani Uchaaran - Nitnem MP3 - Taksal - Giani Thakur Singh Ji, Bhai Jarnail Singh Ji, Jap Ji Sahib - Panj Bania + Rehraas + Soheila Sahib + Nit



Any time we get a chance to listen to Gurbani, we should be thankful. However, it is very important they we listen to Gurbani with pronunciations that are accurate as possible. Not every CD of Nitnem holds true to the correct pronunciation. In general, Taksali Sikhs place a strong emphasis on the pronunciation of the Gurbani as well as reading the full version. In addition some Sikhs support a shorter version of Rehraas sahib and Chupai sahib, but I say that the more Gurbani we can read the better; that is why the audio files below contain ful versions of the Nitnem Bani with pronunciation that is very accurate.
