The Friendship Of The Sufi Saint Shaykh Mian Mir And Guru Arjan Ji

Guru Arjan is in Lahore, birth place of his father Guru Ram Das. Overhead, the sky is a deep saffron hue. The sun hangs in the sky, like a colossal stone ruby, partially hidden by streams and wisps of cloud form. Under this heavenly sky he greets his friend, the senior and deeply respected sufi muslim saint, Shaykh Mian Mir. Guru Arjan once heard about a great and wise sufi mystic residing in Lahore. The sufi was true and pure. Guru Arjan was interested in meeting this great religious philosopher, so he did make the journey. Their friendship lasted throughout their lives.

When the holy city of Amritsar was designated as the place to construct ''''The Harimandir Sahib'''', affectionately known as ''''The Golden Temple'''', the guru asked his close friend Shaykh Mian Mir to lay the first foundation stone. Shaykh Mian Mir graciously, and with deep love and admiration, accepted the honour.
