Jeth/Jayth is a third month in the Sikh Calendar, the Nanakshahi calendar. This month coincides with May/June of the Western/Georgian/Julian Calendar and is the month after the harvest festival in Punjab. This year the first day of this month falls on the 15 May. The month is 31 days long; it starts on May 15 and ends on June 14. On June 15, begins the fourth month in the Sikh Calendar called Harh. During Jeth, in Punjab, the land of the Sikh Gurus, the season is the beginning of summer and the climate is beginning to get very hot.

ਹਰਿ ਜੇਠਿ ਜ੝ੜੰਦਾ ਲੋੜੀਝ ਜਿਸ੝ ਅਗੈ ਸਭਿ ਨਿਵੰਨਿ ॥ ਹਰਿ ਸਜਣ ਦਾਵਣਿ ਲਗਿਆ ਕਿਸੈ ਨ ਦੇਈ ਬੰਨਿ ॥
ਮਾਣਕ ਮੋਤੀ ਨਾਮ੝ ਪ੝ਰਭ ਉਨ ਲਗੈ ਨਾਹੀ ਸੰਨਿ ॥ ਰੰਗ ਸਭੇ ਨਾਰਾਇਣੈ ਜੇਤੇ ਮਨਿ ਭਾਵੰਨਿ ॥
ਜੋ ਹਰਿ ਲੋੜੇ ਸੋ ਕਰੇ ਸੋਈ ਜੀਅ ਕਰੰਨਿ ॥ ਜੋ ਪ੝ਰਭਿ ਕੀਤੇ ਆਪਣੇ ਸੇਈ ਕਹੀਅਹਿ ਧੰਨਿ ॥
ਆਪਣ ਲੀਆ ਜੇ ਮਿਲੈ ਵਿਛ੝ੜਿ ਕਿਉ ਰੋਵੰਨਿ ॥ ਸਾਧੂ ਸੰਗ੝ ਪਰਾਪਤੇ ਨਾਨਕ ਰੰਗ ਮਾਣੰਨਿ ॥
ਹਰਿ ਜੇਠ੝ ਰੰਗੀਲਾ ਤਿਸ੝ ਧਣੀ ਜਿਸ ਕੈ ਭਾਗ੝ ਮਥੰਨਿ ॥4॥

In the month of Jayt'h, the bride longs to meet with the Lord. All bow in humility before Him.
One who has grasped the hem of the robe of the Lord, the True Friend-no one can keep him in bondage.
God's Name is the Jewel, the Pearl. It cannot be stolen or taken away.
In the Lord are all pleasures which please the mind.
As the Lord wishes, so He acts, and so His creatures act.
They alone are called blessed, whom God has made His Own.
If people could meet the Lord by their own efforts, why would they be crying out in the pain of separation?
Meeting Him in the Saadh Sangat, the Company of the Holy, O Nanak, celestial bliss is enjoyed.
In the month of Jayt'h, the playful Husband Lord meets her, upon whose forehead such good destiny is recorded. ||4|| SGGS page 134
