Sri Guru Arjan Dev Sahib is the 5th Guru of Sikhism. He was a great advocate of Shiromani, an ardent advocate of all religions, as well as a self-sacrificing soul to uphold human ideals.

During this time, he edited Guru Granth Sahib, which is the biggest gift to mankind. In order to create religious harmony in the whole of humanity, the voice of its predecessor gurus was collected from place to place and refined by dividing it into a religious book. Guruji has also recorded 2,218 Shabdas in Sri Guru Granth Sahib in 30 ragas of his own.
Once upon a time. In those days, Bala and Krishna Pandit used to make people happy by doing beautiful stories and provide peace to everyone’s mind. One day he appeared in the court of Guru Arjan Dev ji and started praying – Maharaj…! We do not have peace of mind. Can you suggest any solution that will bring us peace?
Then Guru Arjan Devji said- If you want peace of mind then do the same way as you tell people, follow your words. Knowing God and remembering Him. If you tell the story only with the greed to collect money, then your mind will never get peace. Rather the greed of your mind will increase and you will become more unhappy than before. Change the way you do fiction and narrate it in a senseless way, then you will feel true peace in your mind.
According to another passage – after sitting on the throne one day, Guru Arjan Dev ji thought in his mind that a book should be compiled by compiling the bani of all the gurus. Soon they started implementing it. At that time the original copy of Nanakbani was with Mohanji, maternal uncle of Guru Arjan.
He sent Bhai Gurdas to Mohanji to get that copy. Mohanji refused to give a copy. After this, the brothers went to Budha, they also returned empty-handed. Then Guru Arjan himself reached his home. The servant blocked them from entering the house. Guruji too was firm to the tune. He sat at the door and began to beg his maternal uncle to sing.
At this Mohanji reprimanded him a lot and went to meditate. But the Guru continued to sing as before. Finally, seeing his patience, humility and stubbornness, Mohanji’s heart ached and he came out and said – Son, I will give you the original copy of Nanakbani because you are the right person to take it. After this Guru Arjan composed a book by composing hymns of all gurus and saints of other religions, named ‘Granthasahib’ and got it installed at Harmandir.
The life of Guruji, who preached to the world with his holy words, was a very inspiring life of just 43 years. He also stood firm against social evils like sati. He was a spiritual thinker and preacher as well as a social reformer.
Guru Arjan Dev ji attained immortal martyrdom in 1606, chanting ‘Tera Kiya Meetha Lage / Hari Naam Padaratha Nanak Maage’. In his lifetime, Guruji attacked the pomp and superstition in the name of religion. Guru ji occupies the highest position in the spiritual world.
