Autumn brings the blessing of celebrating the birthday of Guru Ram Das Ji, the fourth Sikh Guru, who is lovingly known as the Lord of Miracles. Sikh Dharma communities around the world look to Guru Ram Das for guidance, love, health and connection to the Divine.
Guru Ram Das is recognized historically for having written the Laavan, the four “rounds” in the Sikh wedding ceremony and the four Engagement Shabads. He founded the city of Amritsar, India and laid plans for the Harimandir Sahib, Golden Temple which is recognized around the world as the most sacred temple for Sikhs. Designed to have four entrances, one on each side, to welcome people from every caste, background, gender, religion or country, the Golden Temple is surrounded by a nectar tank that is legendary for it’s healing properties.
The Siri Singh Sahib Ji gave a special sadhana in honor of Guru Ram Das’ birthday, which has been celebrated for decades. Our global communities recognize this time as a potential for miracles, fulfillment of prayers and receiving many blessings and will be participating in multiple online live global events.
Note: In India, calendar events often follow a lunar calendar, which means that birth dates can change from year to year. In the West, for planning purposes, October 9th has been standardized as a date that we celebrate the birthday of Guru Ram Das.
