The Guru Granth Sahib Project is pleased to launch the annotation of four stanzas of 'Lava' by Guru Ramdas Sahib in Rag Suhi. Suhi is a rag of enthusiasm. It is associated with deep love and devotion and is used to evoke feelings of deep adoration. 

These four stanzas are four stages of a seeker’s union with IkOankar (the Divine). They depict the seeker’s spiritual journey. These four stanzas are also sung when the Sikh bride and groom circumambulate four times around the Guru Granth Sahib to solemnize their wedding.
