The description in Gurmat is totally against Hindu's version of Ram.
In Hindu chronicle, Rama was a king of ayodhya, who was thrown out of kingdom then some person called Ravana stole his wife; Sita and he remain tangle in bringing her back. When he acheived her, he then suspect her piousness, and made Sita sit on fire to prove his chastity. After listening to a washer man; he had throw his pregnant wife out of kingdom. She gave birth to two sons in house of Valmiki named Lav and Kush. Those found their father again and became his successor. King Ramchandra did suicide in Sarayu river. In Dasam Granth, Guru Gobind Singh narrates history of King Ramachandra of Ayodhya.
In Gurmat, Rama is not physical entity but Spiritual entity. The difference is cleared in Sikh texts where prevalent King Ramachandra is written as "Tumra Raam" and Raam prevaded in all is written as "Hamara Ram".
