Guru Amar Das and Guru Ram Das
When Emporer Akbar came to Lahore, the Khatris & Brahmins went to him & complained that Guru Amar Das at Goindwal Sahib has started a new religion by giving up the old scriptures and customs. He doesn't even know that the great hymn from Hindu scriptures is Gayatri & niether does he recite the same. He has made his own religious scripture & recites that only. He has created a danger to the Hindu religion.

On listening to their complaint, Akbar said that they need not worry as he will speak to Guru ji & get them justice. After this Akbar sent a messge to guru ji stating that the Khatris & Brahmins are complaining against him and that he should come to Lahore & give an answer to their complaints. On hearing Akbar's message, Guru Amar Dass asked Bhai Jetha (later Guru Ram Dass) to go to Lahore. On listening Guru ji's request, Bhai Jetha said that he had not studied any Shastras so how could he give answers to the questions asked in the meeting. Hearing his doubts Guru ji, with kindness, told Bhai Jetha that he need not worry. In the court of the Emperor, whenever someone asks you a question, start thinking about me and look towards your right arm. You will get the knowledge about all the Vedas & Shastras & you would be able to answer any question without any difficulty. On hearing this & after getting Guru JI's blessings, Bhai Jetha started his journey to Lahore.

At night, He took rest at his house in Choona Mandi Lahore & the next morning, after offering prayers, he went to the Emperor's court. In the court, in presence of Akbar, he gave an answer to the complaint of Khatris & brahmins regarding Gayatri, in a very peaceful manner. Before giving an answer to the complaint, Bhai Jetha recalled the words told to him by Guru ji & while looking towards his right arm, he recited the Gayatri prayers & then also explained there meaning. After hearing the meanings with vocals, everyone & even the complainants were amazed & were not able to ask any question. After listening to meaning filled answer given by Bhai Jetha, the Emperor got very happy & pointed the complainants as liars & while commenting Guru Amar Dass as heavenly figure, presented a robe of honour to Bhai Jetha before bidding him farewell respectfully.

After getting respect from the court, when Bhai Jetha was passing through the market, he saw a very beautiful & expensive cloth at one of the shops & started to think that he should get a gown sewn for Guru ji out of this cloth. But due to less money, Bhai ji got the cloth puchased & gown sewn for Guru ji in his desires only. On the other hand, Guru Amar Dass while sitting in the royal court at Goindwal Sahib, was moving his arms over his chest in order to remove wrinkles from the gown. When Bhai Ballu Ji inquired about that Maharaj, why are you doing so? Guru Ji replied that Bhai Jetha got him a gown sewn from Lahore & he was getting him to wear it.

The next day when Bhai Jetha started from Lahore to Goindwal Sahib, he saw unseasonal mangoes being sold in the market. Looking at the beauty of unseasonal mangoes, Bhai thought that this beautiful gift from Lahore should be taken for Guru ji. After this thought, Bhai bought a mango for one rupee & started towards Goindwal Sahib. After spending a night on the way, he reached village Bhairowal ( Now known as Bhairowal Sahib) near Goindwal Sahib the next day. After taking rest at Bhairowal village, when Bhai Ji started his journey again, But he noticed that the juice started flowing from the mango & the mango might not reach Guru ji. Bhai Jetha started to think about Guru Amar Dass Ji & said "

Hey GOD, this unseasonal mango was bought for you but due to the hot weather, this fruit has started dripping. Kindly accept it & eat it & fulfill my desire". Like this, after offering prayers, Bhai Jetha Ji started to eat the mango at Bhairowal only. At the other end, Guru Amar Dass Ji was eating the mango & enjoying it at Goindwal Sahib. After eating the mango, Guru Ji asked Bhai Billu to keep the seed in the window. When Bhai Jetha came and told Guru ji about the whole story which happened with Akbar, he was very pleased to know about it. Then Guru ji asked that what had he brought from Lahore city for him to which Bhai Jetha replied with folded hands " You are divine, What can I say? I had bought a beautiful piece of cloth for you & got it stiched for your in my heart only & I also bought a unseasonal mango which started dripping due to heat & I ate it by remembering you at Bhairowal." Guru ji after listening to this desire & story said that he had eaten the sweet & beautiful fruit that he had brought for him & has kept the seed. Then Bhai Ballu Ji brought the seed from the window & showed it to Bhai Jetha. After hearing & looking at this miracle, the Sikh followers were amazed & said that Guru Amar Dass is follows Love. He looks towards the person's love & not his name.
