</td></tr> <tr> <td> </td></tr> <tr> <td> Baba Buddha was the great Sikh saint who had the pleasure of serving under the first six Gurus. He was born on 6 October 1506 at the village of Katthu Nangal, 18 km northeast of Amritsar. He was originally named Bura and was the only son of Bhai Suggha and Mai Gauran.
</td></tr> <tr> <td>
</td></tr> <tr> <td> As a small boy, he was one day grazing cattle outside the village when Guru Nanak happened to pass by. According to Bhai Mani Singh in Sikhan Di Bhagat Mala, Bura went up to him and, making obeisance with a bowl of milk as his offering, prayed to him in this manner: "O sustainer of the poor! I am fortunate to have had a sight of you today. Absolve me now from the cycle of birth and death."

The Guru said, "You are only a child yet. But you talk so wisely."

"Some soldiers set up camp by our village," replied Bura, "and they mowed down all our crops - ripe as well as unripe. Then it occurred to me that, when no one could check these indiscriminating soldiers, who would restrain Death from laying his hand upon us, young or old."
</td></tr> <tr> <td>
</td></tr> <tr> <td> At this Guru Nanak pronounced the words: "You are not a child; you possess the wisdom of an old man." From that day, Bura, came to be known as Bhai Buddha. Buddha in Punjabi means an old man. And later, when advanced in years, he became known as Baba Buddha.

</td></tr> <tr> <td> He devoted himself zealously to tasks such as the digging of the baoli at Goindval under the instructions of Guru Amar Das and the excavation of the sarovar at Amritsar under Guru Ram Das and Guru Arjan Dev.
