This year, the first day of the month of Jeth falls on 15 May. Jeth or Jayth is the third month in the Sikh Calendar. This month coincides with May/June of the Western/Georgian/Julian Calendar and is the month after the harvest festival has taken place in Punjab in March/April. Guru Amar Das was born this month on the 23 May (9 Jeth) and on the 11 June (28 Jeth) Guru Hargobind became the sixth Sikh Guru.

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)
