Akali Guru Amardas was succeeded by his son in-law
Jetha who came to be known as Guru Ramdas.
Akali Guru Ramdas Ji
During his lifetime the great Guru wrote over 800 Hymns in
30 Raags (musical measures) and established centers of trade around
the Sikh world
For many years Jetha had served the elderly Akali
Guru Amardas. It was Bhai Jetha who organised and supervised everything
for the third Sikh Guru.
His own tenure of Guruship was a mere seven years.
Yet in these seven years he kept up the work of Akali Guru Nanak
of expounding the philosophy of oneness of Nirankar God and all
mankind. It was Akali Guru Ramdas who started the excavation of
the holy tank of Amritsar.
