Bards/Bhatts in Adi Granth:Sundar Baba

Sundar Baba

SUNDAR BABA , celebrated for his six-stanza composition, the Ramkali Sadu, incorporated in Guru Granth Sahib, was the great grandson of Guth Amar Dãs. His father, Anand Dãs son of Bäbä Mohri, was a man of a devout temperament. Sundar grew up in an environment of faith and piety and developed deep affection and reverence for Guru Amar Dãs, his great-grandfather. The theme of his poem, Sadu meaning call, is the ascension of Guru Amar Dãs, described in terms of his having been recalled by God Almighty. The hymn states how Guru Amar Dãs had completely surrendered himself to the Will .of the Supreme Being, ever remaining absorbed in meditation on the Name, how he had, through the favour of Gurus, attained the office of Guth, how he, at the time of his departure, had appointed Ram Dãs his successor and how he had told his family to abide by the Will of t.he Lord and not to weep,for him after him.
