All Bishnoi rituals and rites of passages are initiated and performed in the presence of fire. In 1485, Guru Jambheśvara established Bishnoi Pantha with the performance of a havan, fire ceremony. Today, Bishnois follow the same havan tradition in their daily rituals and in their rites of passages. Gotrachāra includes verses taken from various śabdas by Jambheśvara.
