History Bhai Jivan Singhji (1649-1705) was the name given to Bhai Jaita after he had received the rites of initiation at the hands of Guru Gobind Singhji on the day - 30 March 1699 when the Khalsa was inaugurated. He was a Sikh who had belonged to the Majhabi (scavenger) caste who was given by Guru Gobind Singhji the special epithet of 'Ranghareta Guru Ka Beta ("the young man of the Ranghar caste is the Guru's own son"). The Ranghar caste was a caste created for those born of a union between a Hindu and a Muslim. Both the children and their descendants were considered outcasts by the Hindus. It was Bhai Jaitajiwho had risked his life to recover and return the severed head of Guru Tegh Bahadurji to his family for cremation. He had been sent to Delhi where he witnessed Guru Tegh Bahadurji's beheading in Chandni Chowk on 11 November 1675. He succeeded in evading the guards and escaping with the severed head to Anandpur where he was received with much honour by Guru Gobind Singhji.
