Guru Stories:The Robe of Honor
The Robe of Honor
Baba Amar Das served Sri Guru Angad Dev with utmost devotion and dedication. Besides fetching water from the river Beas for Master’s bath every day, he would serve in the Langar. Every year the Guru acknowledged his services by conferring upon him robe of honor which the Great Guru wrapped around his head. Baba Amar Das was decorated with the Siropi seven times. Seva is one of the main tenets of Sikhism, exemplified through the lives of Gurus.
