They are states of consciousness, realms you can experience. For a deeper dive: "The Five Khands in Japji"

Re: the Lavan. The Lavan is both instructions as well as description of the stages on the householder's path to liberation. Five Khands. Four rounds. Here is my most recent English translation of the Lavan.

thank you! that explains a lot. I am wondering that since the laavan of the anand karaj also define stages of spiritual development, do these correlate with the Khands as well?
