Guru Har Rai : The Seventh Sikh Guru Vol. 1 & 2
Guru Har Rai was born in 1630 in Kiratpur Sahib. From a young age, the Guru developed a special bond with nature and worked towards its preservation. He felt compassion for animals, birds, and plants. His grandfather, Guru Hargobind, recognized the boy's divinity and potential, and made him the seventh Sikh Guru in 1644. Inclined towards God's Creation, the young Guru began his work by establishing 52 gardens in the city of Kiratpur itself. A medicinal farm was set up by Guru Har Rai. Rare plants and herbs were cultivated, and effective medicines were extracted for the cure of deadly ailments. In 1661, Guru Har Rai announced his young son Har Krishan as his successor before departing for his heavenly abode. He was truly an environmentalist, a noble soul who offered solace to the tormented.
