Known as Jetha, which means the first born, he was a handsome young man. When the Guru grew up he could always be found in the company of religious and spiritual men.
Moreover, as a Guru, one of his principal contributions to Sikh community was organizing the structure of Sikh society.
In addition, Guru was the author of Laava, the 4 sacred hymns of the Sikh Marriage Rites. He was creator and planner of the township of Ramdaspur which became the Sikh holy city of Amritsar. Before he died, he nominated his youngest son as the next Guru of the Sikhs – Guru Arjan Dev.
