What is the significance of Gurus? Though all of us know them, their exact contributions are not known by many Sikhs.

In a new podcast series, The 12 Gurus: From 1469 to Infinity, SikhRI sheds light on their lives and contributions. Were they spiritualists and reformers or Divine and Revolutionaries? What lessons can we draw from them? How do they teach us to think?

The series introduces Gurus as masters of fine arts, builders of cities, deliverers of justice, seva (service) coordinators, and an overarching gateway to freedom and equality. It touches on the singular and harmonized jot-jugat (light-method) as well as varied and diverse physical and temporal forms to provide a holistic understanding of the Gurus’ fundamental nature.

In this episode, we dive into the world of Guru Ramdas Sahib, who continues Guru Nanak Sahib’s mission:

  • From Bhai Jetha to Guru Ramdas Sahib
  • Sold boiled gram flour at Basarke
  • Response to Siri Chand
  • Musical revolution – the invention of Partal
  • Founded Amritsar/Chak Ramdas/Ramdaspur
  • Economic ingenuity – Bazars of Amritsar
