GURBAKHSH SIṄGH, one of the Chhibbar Brāhmaṇ family of Kaṛiālā in Jehlum district, now in Pakistan, which had been managing the household affairs of the Gurūs since the time of Gurū Hargobind (1595-1644), was the son of Dharam Chand, treasurer to Gurū Gobind Siṅgh. Subsequent to the evacuation of Anandpur in 1705, Gurbakhsh Siṅgh remained in the service of Mātā Sundarī and Mātā Sāhib Devāṅ at Delhi. After the jāgīr or estate of Gurū Chakk, i.e. Amritsar, was restored to Mātā Sundarī by Emperor Bahādur Shāh in 1711, she sent him to Amritsar along with Kirpāl Siṅgh Subhikkhī as dāroghah or manager. According to his son, Kesar Siṅgh Chhibbar, the author of Baṅsāvalīnāmā, Gurbakhsh Siṅgh's duties included the supervision of gaūkhānā (cattleshed), kārkhānā (work centre), khazāna (treasury) and the running of Gurū kā Laṅgar or community kītchen.
