What would Divine Light be in Gurmukhi & Punjabi? Is there more than one word for it?

Also, I want to know about the Divine Name Ram. Is it a Sikh Divine Name or is it the Hindu Rama?

Thanks.

Sat siri akal Behnji,
Ram or Rama(राम) is the name of god in Hindi(the god of courage) he was the incarnation of vishnu(Vishnu is the operator of world), Ram is a hindu name of the "divine" which they call like I said above.. For example Guru RAM das ji, it is a hindu "word/name" (orginated from Sanskriti)
God has no name you can call him waheguru, ohm , allah , jahwe.. etc

the name is not divine , but god is divine

I would call "jyot , or Jot" divine light.. but there can be some othere words for this as well..

If I am wrong , please correct me.

In gurmukhi, it is written like this ਜੋਤ

ਜੋਤਨਾ<table><tbody><tr><td align="left">ਜੋਤੀ

The words above are descendants.
</td></tr></tbody></table>

THe DIVINE LIGHT in Gurbaanee is refered as JOT(i).

This word is Feminine Gender,Plural Number

All various NAMEs mentioned in Gurbaanee refer to this JOT(i) Only.

Thus it is important to Focus the understanding of Gurbaanee in reference

this JOT(i)
