Guru Ram Das was the fourth Guru in a lineage of ten Sikh Gurus. He became a faithful disciple of Guru Amar Das, the third Sikh Guru, at a very young age. He served the Guru and the congregation in Goindwal with love, patience and humility for over two decades. Before Guru Amar Das left the mortal world, he passed on the spiritual mantle of Guru Nanak to Ram Das. Thus Ram Das’s selfless service and complete obedience to the Guru’s teachings transformed him from Ram Das, an ordinary orphaned disciple, to Ram Das, the divine Guru.
