Jai Gurudev! Shri Guru Ravidass Maharaj Ki Jai! Gali Gali Se Ayi Awaaz, Jai Ravidass, Jai Ravidass!

Gurdwaras

The Ravidassia place of worship is called a bhawan and is referred to as such by strict orthodox Ravidassias.[5] Technically a Ravidassia can meditate and reflect on God anywhere, as Guru Ravidass stated that “God dwells within the heart and is always around us.” It is not a strict requirement to cover one’s head and to remove footwear when entering a bhawan, but many people do so, due to the influence of Sikhism on the Ravidassia faith. Outside a bhawan there is always a red flag upon which is written the Nishaan, and above it an electric lamp symbolising enlightenment from Shri Guru Ravidass Ji’s teachings. Langar, a communal lunch, takes place inside the bhawan and all are free to partake of it. The Guru Granth Sahib is installed as the focal point in the main worship room, however most features of the center don’t differentiate much to any features of the main Gurdwara
