MANOHAR DĀS, BHĀĪ, a great-grandson of Gurū Amar Dās and a distant cousin of Gurū Hargobind, was a devoted Sikh, known for his piety and humility. He had been brought up by Gurū Arjan himself. As he grew up, he started performing kīrtan at Gurdwārā Chaubārā Sāhib and Gurdwārā Bāolī Sāhib at Goindvāl. Gurū Hargobind was at Kīratpur when news reached him of the death of Manohar Dās at Goindvāl. The Gurū was much grieved and observed formal mourning. Bhāī Kamālā, a Kashmīrī Sikh in the Gurū's retinue, spoke of the virtuous character and devotion of Bhāī Manohar Dās.
