SANSRAM

(0 votes)

SANSRAM, son of Baba Mohan and a grandson of Guru Amar Das. According to Sarup Das Bhalla, Mahima Prakash, he lost his mother in infancy. His father being indifferent to worldly affairs, Guru Amar Das took him under his care. Sarisram grew up to be a gifted young man. He mostly remained in attendance upon Guru Amar Das or spent his time memorizing hymns coming down from the Gurus.

These lie wrote down in Gurmukhi characters. Two of the pothis or volumes he prepared are to this day preserved in the descendant families. It is said that Guru Arjan made use of Sansram's pothis when compiling the Sikh canon in the form of the Adi Granth.

World Gurudwaras

World Gurudwaras will strive to be most comprehensive directory of Historical Gurudwaras and Non Historical Gurudwaras around the world.The etymology of the term 'gurdwara' is from the words 'Gur (ਗੁਰ)' (a reference to the Sikh Gurus) and 'Dwara (ਦੁਆਰਾ)' (gateway in Gurmukhi), together meaning 'the gateway through which the Guru could be reached'. Thereafter, all Sikh places of worship came to be known as gurdwaras.
