BUDDH SIṄGH, BHĀĪ (1903-1921), son of Bhāī Surjan Siṅgh and Māī Gaṅgā Kaur was born on 4 January 1903 at village Kartārpur in Siālkoṭ district. The family descended on the paternal side from Bhāī Ālam Siṅgh Nachanā, a prominent Sikh in Gurū Gobind Siṅgh's retinue. Young Buddh Siṅgh shared his elders' religious fervour and also received formal education up to the middle school standard. At the age of 15, he accompanied his parents on a pilgrimage to Sachkhaṇḍ Srī Hazūr Sāhib, Nāndeḍ, where he received the vows of the Khālsā and donned a Nihaṅg's uniform. He organized a kīrtanī jathā (choir) and began preaching the Gurū's teachings.
On 18 February 1921, Buddh Siṅgh went to Chakk No. 13 Nānakpurā, district Sheikhūpurā, where lived his mother's sister with her husband and their infant son. On 19 February 1921 the entire family including Buddh Siṅgh went to Nankāṇā Sāhib to offer homage and thanksgiving at different shrines in the town. They spent the night at Gurdwārā Pātshāhī Chhevīṅ. Early in the next morning, Buddh Siṅgh went out for a walk along the Railway line and ran into the jathā of Bhāī Lachhmaṇ Siṅgh Dhārovālī bound for Gurdwārā Jānam Asthān. Bhāī Buddh Siṅgh joined the jathā which was showered with bullets as they reached the shrine. Buddh Siṅgh fell a martyr along with others.
