Interfaith Days: Birthday of Guru Ram Das

In the Sikh faith, today is the celebration of the birthday of Guru Ram Das (1534-1581), the fourth of the ten Gurus of Sikhism.  He organized the structure of Sikh society, wrote the hymns of the Sikh Marriage Rites, and planned and created what became the holy city of Amritsar.
