Gehr Ganbeehreh were originated in 1887. It is basically 'Gehr Ganbeehr Naam’ meaning ‘deep contemplation of Naam. It was started by Vishnu das who joined Vada Akhara of Udasis. In 1887, on becoming disillusioned with the multifarious forms of Sikhism, he started to propagate his own philosophy of ‘Gehr Ganbeehr Naam’ meaning ‘deep contemplation of Naam’. He settled in Ropar, in the district of Ambala
Due to the fact there are so many distinct Sikh sects centered around individuals, there could never be true love of Sikhism. He taught that by transcending all outward religious forms, when one absorbs oneself in God’s name in state of deep meditation ‘Gehr Ganbeehr’ (a term which he substantiated by quoting Adi Guru Durbar), then there can be true love of God.
On meeting each other, the Gehr Ganbeehri Sikhs saluted each other with, ‘Gehr Ganbeehr’, and the response would be ‘Sat Gehr Ganbeehr’ (true Guru God is). These Sikhs believed in Adi Guru Darbar, and in general followed Udasi traditions. In time, they merged back with Udasis.
