Raag Gond (ਗੋਂਡ) – Gond is an expression of triumph, however these feelings are balanced and in perspective ensuring that there is also an aspect of humility. Therefore, although there is a sense of knowing and understanding the achievement, there is not a feeling of becoming obsessed or getting lost in the achievement itself.

Gond was used by Guru Ram Das Ji, Guru Arjan Dev Ji, Bhagat Kabir Ji, Bhagat Ravidaas Ji, and Bhagat Naamdev Ji.

The following represents the order of notes that can be used on the ascending and descending phase of the composition and the primary and secondary notes:
