Brahmgiani Baba Sri Chand Ji Maharaj was born unto Sahib Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji and Mata Sulakhni Ji at Sultanpur Lodhi, district Kapurthala, Punjab.

Baba Sri Chand Ji founded the ascetic sect of Udhasis. Baba Ji's headquarters were at Barath, 8km Southwest of Pathankot in Gurdaspur district of the Punjab.

The Udhasis functioned as preachers and established missionary centres at different places in the counttry and beyond.Through them Guru Nanak's word was carried to far corners of the land.

Baba Sri Chand Ji was a devoted Sikh and a saintly person but an ascetic and renunciate yogi.


Baba Sri Chand Ji stayed at Dera Baba Nanak and maintained this important shrine of Guru Nanak Dev Ji. He established the Udhasi sect here and they travelled far and wide to spread the word of Guru Nanak Dev Ji.

Upon Baba Sroi Chand's demise at the age of 135 , the son of Guru Hargobind ji , Baba Gurditta Ji, was appointed the head of the udhasis. They received support and guidance from the Sikhs.

The Udhas is protected and maintained the historic Gurdwaras of Sri Anandpur Sahib , Sri Hazoor Sahib, Sri Amritsar for 100plus years after demise of Tenth Guru Ji. This was a time of great persecution for the Sikhs.The Udhasis kept alive the tradition of schools of learning to keep alive the Gurmukhi language and knowledge of Sikh History.

The Udhasis preached the teachings of Sahib Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji but they are exempt from the Khalsa initiation.

Guru Nanak Dev Ji led a householder lifestyle whereas Baba Sri Chand Ji was an ascetic. However, they both taught devotion to God.

Baba Sri Chand Ji founded the ascetic sect of Udhasis.



This is quite a common thought, but I would like to say that Guru Nanak Dev Ji is the original Udasi, the founder of the "udasis". Udas means to wander, and this is what Guru Nanak Dev Ji did, 4 times all over asia and middle east. This method of preaching Guru Nanak blessed Baba Sri Chand with the sewa of preforming due to his ascetic nature. Baba Ji did not create or invent this samprdaye of school of teaching. He simply carried on the great work that Guru Nanak Dev Ji started in preaching Gurmat all over.
So, I have a request for all of you who have cut their kesh and beards and have the name "Singh". I put my hands together and ask, 'Please, become my brothers'. And only become my brothers if you think I'm good. If you think I'm a low-life then don't at all become my brothers. If you call me good, then you'll have to keep your kesh and beards, give up liquor and if you call me a low-life, I'll be quiet and sit down and leave you alone.

Bro same udasis Mahants commited the sacrileges even during Maharaja Ranjit Singh timesMahant Narain dass was a udasi who burned alive 200 sikhs in Nankana shaiab. As udasis never follow gurmat so they r not sikhs. We can call Sri Chand ji a great saint but remeber one thing he failed in test of gurmat so Guru Nanak ji prefered Guru Angad ji in Guru Nanak house only those following Gurmat is accepted other wrong doings of udasis as follows
1During occupation of gurdwaras idols of hindu gods were installed at Darbar Shiab AMRIT SAR and other Gurdwaras and sikhs were told to go to ganga at hardwar before coming to durbar shaiab
2 Women and young girls were gangraped BY sadhus at holy durbar shaiab in durbar shaiab he chief mahant son in 1915-20 declared shamelessly that sikhs should leave their women folks for them many women and girls were forcibly taken away in histroic Gurdwaras.
3 In NANKANA SHIAB IN 1920 A YOUNG GIRL DAUGTER OF A RETIRED PUNJAB OFFICER WAS GANGRAPED WHEN RAHRAS SHIAB PATH WAS BEING PERFORMED WHEN MAHANT NARAIN DASS WAS INFORMED HE JUSTIFIED IT MANY SADHUS USED TO SMOKE AT GURDWARAS AS A RESULT GURDWARA MOVEMENT WAS STRATED , GANDHI SUPPORTED UDASI MAHANTS AT THAT TIME.
Do u support such moraly corrupt people
Gurfateh sikh sangat must be beware of these fake sikhs

The Udasi (Udasin) is the one who is indifferent to wordly affairs. Baba Sri Chand was the historical founder of the Udasi sect said to have begun with Muni Sanat Kumar. A son of Guru Nanak Dev and Mata Sulakhani Devi, Sri Chand was born on “Bhadrpada Shukla Navami” at Sultanpur Lodhi (Punjab). The infant had matted hair, three horizontal marks on his forehead, rings in his right ear and holy ash all over his body. His birth chart showed that he would be a man of deep learning, have extraordinary qualities and would remain a celibate.

When Sri Chand was about seven years, Guru Nanak Dev went on his first spiritual tour (Udasi). After two years he was invested with the sacred thread (yajnopavita) and formally initiated into the Vedic literature by Pandit Hardayal. At 11 he went to the “gurukul” of Acharya Purushottam Kaul in Srinagar for a comprehensive study of the holy texts and subsequently received initiation from Avinashi Muni.

Sri Chand loved the solitude of forests where he meditated for hours without any fear of carnivores. Miracles came naturally to him. At Sankheshvara (near Dvarika, Gujarat) he made a spring flow by just blowing his conch and burying it in the ground. While in Kashmir, he buried a burning piece of wood from his “dhuna” and materialised green leaves on it in the presence of representatives of Yakub Khan who had come to arrest him.

The place, known as “Sri Chandra Chinar”, exists to this day and is in the occupation of Udasis.

At Chamba, on the banks of the Ravi, he made a large stone move like a boat to provide spiritual light to a boatman who had refused to ferry him across. Sri Chand went as far as Sindh, Baluchistan, Kabul and Kandhar delineating the principles of true dharma and spreading the message of love and peace. He also visited Kailash in Tibet, Mansarovar, Nepal and Bhutan, besides Assam (Kamarupa) and Puri in the east and Somnath in the west.

Sri Chand built a humble memorial to his father by salvaging the urn containing his ashes (from the fury of flood at Kartarpur) and burying it at a place which developed into a town known as Dera Baba Nanak. The successors of Guru Nanak Dev held him in deep reverence. Before his death he is said to have nominated Baba Gurditta, the eldest son of sixth Sikh Guru Hargobind as his successor, who, in turn, established four monastic orders (“dhunas”) under Phula Shah, Gonda and Balu Hasna. While the records of Bhattas (bards) say that Sri Chand died at Kiratpur, (January 13, 1629), the Udasis believe that he vanished into the forest of Chamba after giving his last sermon to Brahmaketu, his ardent disciple from Bhutan.

Sri Chand’s god was both “saguna” (with attributes) and “nirguna” (without attributes). He synthesised “jnana marg” (way of knowledge) and “bhakti marg”, the idea of one god and of His divine descent on the earth in various forms, and of “dev puja” and “guru puja”. He believed both in the ultimate oneness of everything and in one’s cherished and chosen deity (“ishta devata”). While, on one hand, he tried to bring about a rapprochement between Hindus and Muslims and stemmed the tide of converts to Islam, on the other, he popularised the “panchayatana puja” of the “smarta” brahminical tradition involving the simultaneous worship of the five deities - Ganesha, Surya, Vishnu, Shiva and Shakti - to dilute sectarian differences among the Hindus.

Sri Chand believed in the eternal principle of cause and effect (“karma siddhanta”), in the efficacy of the holy name for spiritual realisation, in “varnashrama dharma” and in transmigration. He loved Sanskrit and is said to have evolved a system of Sanskrit grammar (Chandra vyakarna) which is taught in Sanskrit mahavidyalayas of Udasis.

Sri Chand remained a celibate throughout his life. Among the works attributed to him are: “Arta” (in Sanskrit arti) Sri Guru Nanak Dev comprising 10 “padas” in honour of his father; “Guru Gayatri” meant for recitation; “Sahasranama” (lit. thousand names) in praise of the supreme being; “Panchadevashatakam” in praise of the five deities and “Matravani” comprising 39 “dvipadas” and is a succinct presentation of the Udasi philosophy. Sri Chand is also said to have written commentaries on the Vedas, the Upanishads and the Vedanta Sutras of Veda Vyasa.

A small shrine having the statue of Baba Sri Chand lies at Pakhoke Randhave, near an old “tahli” tree (“sheesham”), mythologically linked to the Udasi preceptor. (Author is Principal of Lyallpur Khalsa College, Jalandhar City.)

We can call Sri Chand ji a great saint but remeber one thing he failed in test of gurmat so Guru Nanak ji prefered Guru Angad ji in Guru Nanak house only those following Gurmat is accepted


did Baba Budha fail in these tests as well ?


Such distortion of history these days.



true.

Kookar, where are you getting this info from?

Hawk13, you really need to look at the Udasi samprdaye in its whole, rather than look at the activities of a misguided section. Cos the way you look at them, is the same way people will look at you. And they may take fake Sikhs as an example and taint you with the same brush. Wise up.
So, I have a request for all of you who have cut their kesh and beards and have the name "Singh". I put my hands together and ask, 'Please, become my brothers'. And only become my brothers if you think I'm good. If you think I'm a low-life then don't at all become my brothers.
