Guru Arjan Dev, the Fifth Sikh Guru, whom providence had destined to be the first martyr to the Sikh cause and religious toleration, enjoyed the distinction of being the grandson of Guru Amar Das. The child Arjan was equally blessed as the progeny of Bibi Bhani, known for her piety, service and humility and Jetha Ji who was subsequently hailed as Guru Ram Das, the Fourth Guru, in recognition to his devotion and commitment to Sikh religion.
Guru Arjan Dev was born on April 15, 1563 A.D. at Goindwal, a small town on the bank of the river Beas in the district of Amritsar.
Guru Arjan Dev spent 11 years of his early life under the benign grace and tender care of his maternal grandfather at Goindwal. Guru Arjan was married to Ganga, daughter of Krishen Chand, a resident of Meo village near Phillaur in Jalandhar district. The marriage took place in 1589 when he was about 26 years old.
This small website is only a humble tribute at His Holy feet. Only some salient features have been briefly touched upon.
Jit Duaray Ubhrey Tite Laihu Ubaar
Sri Guru Granth Sahib (853)
Sri Guru Amar Das Ji prays to the Lord,
“O Lord, the world is on fire, save it, by Showering your Grace. Save it by whichever way it can be saved"
Whenever Jagat Guru Incarnates, He Incarnates for the whole world. His compassion is Universal and All-embracing.
The Third Nanak, Sri Guru Amar Das Ji prays to the Lord Almighty to save the world on fire.
All Merciful Sri Guru Arjan Dev Sahibfirst compiles a Holy Scripture, eternally aglow with all Celestial Harmonies and totally free from all Cruel Diversities, for Universal Redemption. Then the Fifth Nanak ( Sri Guru Arjan Dev Ji) sits on fire, to save the world on fire.
Har Naam Padarath Nanak Mange
In Sikhism there is the
same emphasis on
also called Bhaannaa
(God's Will) as there is on renunciation in ascetic cults and creeds. It is
a state of mind which understands clearly the Divine Will. The doctrine of
Bhaannaa is the acceptance of the Will of God which is the core of Sikh
faith. An enlightened mind lives according to inner dictates of His Hukam
(order). It is a dedicated submission and infinite patience to accept His
Will. Guru Arjan sowed the seed of
martyrdom which largely flourished after
him and became the heritage of the Sikhs. To justify and substantiate that
prophets and saints can conquer death and suffering, two Sikh Gurus and
countless Sikhs have faced martyrdom. They did so to show to the world their
belief in the eternity of their spirit and the fearlessness they acquired in
the love of God. It is a lesson to the world that true devotion to God
transcends the sorrow of life. The Master is not indifferent to the values
and to the suffering of the virtuous at the hands of the wicked. To save and
defend is His Characteristic (Birdh). He cares for devotion of His devotees
and guards His prophets and saints from misery unless He wills and desires
that their agonizing experience and
painful martyrdom should serve higher
purpose. This was the fourth day of the light half of the month of Jeth,
Sambat 1663 (May 30, 1606 CE).
