The Ten Gurus & Sri Guru Granth Sahib Jee

Sri Guru Ram Das Sahib Jee

Sri Guru Ram Das Sahib JiGuru Ram Das ji was born at Chuna Mandi Bazaar Lahore at the site of present shrine on 24th September 1534 and spent the first seven years of his life here. Soon after birth he was given the name Jetha meaning the first born. Jetha's simple and God-fearing parents Hari Das and Anup Devi of Lahore were delighted at this precious gift from Waheguru. As he was growing up and in his teens he could always be found in the company of religious men. Jetha became a handsome young man. One day Jetha came across a party of Sikhs who were on their way to Goindwal to pay homage to Guru Amar Das ji. Jetha decided to join them and also travel to Goindwal. Upon their arrival and meeting Guru Amar Das ji at once noticed the young Jetha with his pleasant manner and sense of devotion. While his fellow travelers returned to Lahore Jetha decided to stay and become a disciple of Guru Amar Das ji. His hard work and devotion eventually won him the hand of Guru Amar Das's younger daughter Bibi Bhani. They went on to have three sons Prithi Chand Mahadev and Arjan Dev.
