The Guru Granth Sahib Project is pleased to launch the annotation of four Sabads of 'Babarvani' by Guru Nanak Sahib. Three Sabads have been revealed in Rag Asa, and the fourth one has been revealed in Rag Tilang. While Rag Asa evokes feelings of devotion, Rag Tilang evokes joy, enthusiasm, and positivity.

The foundation of the Mughal empire in Hindustan was laid by Zahir-ud-din-Muhammad Babur in 1526 CE. At that time, Ibrahim Lodhi was ruling from Delhi. To put an end to his rule, Babur launched many attacks on Hindustan. The Panjab was used as a battlefield in these attacks. Under the command of Babur, his troops plundered and destroyed several towns of Panjab. Guru Nanak Sahib witnessed the destruction caused by Babur and vividly depicted the scenes of destruction in these four Sabads, collectively known as ‘Babarvani’ in the Sikh tradition.
