In the SGGS, the Sikh holy Granth (book), there are a total of 60 raga compositions and this raga is the fifty-seventh raga to appear in the series. The composition in this raga appears on a total of 25 pages from page numbers 1327 to 1352.

Raag Parbhati (ਪ੍ਰਭਾਤੀ) – The emotions conveyed in Parbhati are those of extreme devotion; there is an intense confidence and love for the entity it is devoted to. This affection arises from knowledge, common sense and a detailed study. There is therefore an understanding and a considered will to devote itself to that entity.

Prabhaati belongs to the Bhairav thata and is often combined with Raga Bhairav. Prabhaati was the setting used for 58 hymns by Guru Nanak Dev Ji, Guru Amar Das Ji, Guru Ram Das Ji, and Guru Arjan Dev Ji. This is a morning raga to be performed in a slow and dignified manner.
