Guru Har Krishan Sahib Ji was declared as Eighth Nanak Guru by his father Shri Guru Har Rai Sahib Ji before his death in 1661. Ram Rai, the eldest son of Guru Har Rai Sahib, was inflamed with jealousy. He had long cherished a desire to be the next Guru of the Sikhs.
Guru Arjan Sahib Ji was very humble and soft spoken. He was a perfect blend of devotion and sacrifice.
When he was only 18 years old, Shri Guru Ramdas Sahib Ji Maharaj installed him as the Fifth Nanak, the fifth Guru of the Sikhs.
Incarnation of divinity, a mystic, a saint, the founder of Sikhism, Shri Guru Nanak Sahib Ji was born on 13th of April, 1469, at Rai-Bhai-di, Talwandi (Now in Pakistan). It is situated now in Shekhupar District of Pakistan.
Ramdas Ji was a virtuous man, with considerable merit. He was full of devotion, piety, energy, and eloquence. Guru Amardas Sahib Ji tested him on several occasions, and Ramdas Ji successfully passed all the tests.
Guru Hargobind Sahib Ji used to wear two swords called ‘Miri’ and ‘Piri’. The first sword was the symbol of military power and the second symbolized spiritual power. The Sikh then became ‘Saint-Soldier.’
