    Here is a point of view given by Prof. Gurbbachan Singh M.A, and Dr. Ajit Singh Aulakh Ph.D...

    Panch - Five wise persons, leaders, member of a rural council, (Panchyat); devotee to God, persons who have faith in God, distinguished persons.

    Parvan - Acceptable, agreeable

    Note - Panch Parvan:- These two words have very vast meaning in sikh religion. It is considered that Guru Nanak Sahib used to select five persons from the Sangat (gathering of the Guru's devotees). To follow the First Guru, the other sat Guru's also used to select five eminent persons from the Sangat. These five persons are know as Panch Parvan, Panch Pardhan (presidents), Five persons selected by the 5th Guru Sat Guru Arjan Dev Sahib Ji are known as:

    1. Bhai Bidhi Chang Ji 2. Bhai Jetha Ji 3. Bhai Langah Ji 4. Bhai Pirana Ji 5. Bhai Para Ji. Similarly the five acceptable persons selected as members of the presidential council of Sat Guru Teg Bahadur Sahib Ji are known as 1. Bhai Mati Das Ji 2. Bhai Gurditta Ji 3. Bhai Diala Ji 4. Bhai Udha Ji 5. Bhai Jatta Ji. Dasmesh father Sahib Siri Guru Gobind Singh Ji selected the five acceptable persons, in April, 1699 at the Vaisakhi Festival by demanding their heads for noble sacrifice. Those who presented their heads to Sat Guru Gobind Singh Ji are called as Panj Piare. They include 1. Bhai Dya Singh Ji 2. Bhai Dharam Singh Ji 3. Bhai Mohakam Singh Ji 4. Bhai Sahib Singh Ji 5. Bhai Himat Singh Ji.

    Aman ji,

    Actually there have always been FIVE eminent Sikhs during each Guru jis period.
    Five Sikhs also followed Guru Teg bahdur Ji to Delhi and three of them were martyred in His presence.
    Baba Bnanda Singh ji was sent to Punjab with FIVE WEAPONS as well.
    This subject needs further study. Thanks for this thread...

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
