Guru Ram Das’ Birthday Anniversary • October 9

Celebrate the birthday of Guru Ram Das, the Lord of Miracles and spiritual guide of Yogi Bhajan. The 11 days leading up to his birthday is a very powerful time for the fulfillment of prayers. It is a time of great blessing.

From September 28 through October 8: Gather together each evening for 11 days to chant Dhan Dhan Ram Das Guru for 11–31 minutes. On October 9, celebrate as well with a special Sadhana (daily spiritual practice) in the Amrit Vela (4– 7 a.m.) for 2.5 hours by chanting Dhan Dhan Ram Das Guru. In many communities it is our tradition to have a Gurdwara service on Guru Ram Das’ birthday and bring your “wish-and-a-dish” to share with the community. Yogi Bhajan has described this occasion as a unique time of year to have our prayers and wishes fulfilled.
