History of Sukhmani Sahib

Sukhmani Sahib was created by Guru Arjan around 1602 preceding he gathered the Adi Granth. The Guru ordered it at Ramsar Sarovar , Amritsar which at the time was in thick woods.

It is accepted Sri Chand came to Amritsar to meet Guru Arjan and he occupied with the formation of Sukhmani. The Guru had written 16 canto and mentioned Sri Chand to complete the organization. Sri Chand out of modesty just presented the Salok from the Mul Mantar by Guru Nanak. Hence this Salok was put by the Guru in the beginning of the 17 canto.
