For the very first time, Music Today presents the history and significance of the five Takhts, in the form of shabad-kirtan and vyakhya by renowned ragi-s, in this special pack of 5 CDs. Each album also features the history of the Takht as narrated by the respective Jathedars.
This pack also features a special 6th album presenting, for the first time, Gurbani by the Hazuri Ragi of Nankana Sahib, the birthplace of Sri Guru Nanak Dev ji, the founder of Sikhism.
The concept of Takht, literally meaning a throne or seat of authority, is the result of historical development of Sikhism. The five Takhts, holding special significance for the Sikh community, are instituted in five Gurdwaras. These Takhts are the seats of Sikh religious authority. Important decisions concerning the religious and social life of the Sikh community have been taken here for centuries.
The use of the word Takht in Gurmat is unique. The Takht is not subjective but an eternal concept. It is free from the limitations of time and place. Such a conception of the Takht has been formulated by the Ten Gurus of Sikhism. A Takht advocates impartiality, independence, and sovereignty of the Guru Panth. All the Five Takhts are fountainheads of inspiration and centres of enlightenment for the entire Khalsa Panth.
The five Takhts of Sikhism are – Sri Akal Takht Sahib, Amritsar, Takht Sri Keshgarh Anandpur Sahib, Takht Sri Harmandar Patna Sahib, Takht Sri Damdama Sahib, Sabo Ki Talwandi & Takht Sri Hazoor Sahib, Nander.
