Bhai Jetha was installed as Guru Ram Das. The occasion is vividly described by Guru Amar Das’s grandson, Sunder, who was witness to the scene and it is described in AdiGranth. Sunder records the Guru’s last words and actions; how he had become the successor of Nanak’s mantle and how he had received the call of the creator and welcomed it. Addressing those as his family he explained the call of God sent for his family and admonished all not to mourn his passing, instead to recite kirtan and have katha (discourse); announced his successor – Ram Das.
