How can a Hindu woman, without a bath and without plastering her kitchen square, anoint her fore-head with the saffron-mark?

The successor Guru established new centres of their activities to impart such Teachings to the people, and not to escape from the fear of opposition.

If we accept that Baba Sri Chand received those books, why should he have directed his followers to throw his invaluable treasure of knowledge in the waters of river Ravi along with his body? Baba Sri Chand, in his old age, with great difficulty came to Amritsar from Barath, district Gurdaspur, to see Guru Ram Das; and Guru Arjan Dev and Guru Hargobind went especially to Barath to meet with Baba Ji, and then he would make a will to throw that Invaluable Wealth of Knowledge to be thrown in the waters of river Ravi !!
Also worthy of note is the last word of the third verse. In each case words used are like, “aavaniya “, “bakhshavania “.

This confirms our conception that Guru Amar Das had with him the Compositions of Guru Nanak Dev, which ultimately reached Guru Arjan Dev In support of our conception, we give below a section of Astpadi of each of the Gurus - Guru Nanak Dev sabad rnngae hukam sabae, sachi dargaih mehal bulae; sache deen dayal mere sahiba sache mun patiavania.
