Gurdwara Sri Ratangarh Sahib is situated about 14 km's by road southwest of Takht Sri Hazur Sahib on the hills of Ratnagiri.
When Sri Guru Gobind Singh Ji left his mortal body and rejoined with God, the Khalsa were very disturbed.
The Sikhs made preparations for his final rites as he had instructed them, the Sohila was recited and Parshad (sacred food) was distributed.
While all were mourning the loss, a Sikh arrived and said, 'You suppose that Guru Sahib has become joti jot? I met Guru Sahib this very morning riding his bay horse with eagle flying overhead. After bowing to him, I asked where he was going. Guru Sahib smiled and replied that he was going to the forest.'
The Sikh asked if there was any messages to be given to the Khalsa and Guru Sahib had said, 'Do not worry, I will always be with you.' The Khalsa were advised to stay in Chardi Kala, continue Kirtan and Jap of Satnam.
The Sikhs who heard this statement arrived at the conclusion that it was all the Guru's play, that Guru Sahib dwelt in uninterrupted bliss, that Guru Gobind Singh showed himself wherever he was remembered.
When Sikh's checked, they found that Guru Sahib's horse and eagle were not at the stable. After receiving the message they became Chardi Kala. One who treasures even a grain of the Lord's love in his heart, is the blessed one and the Guru reveals himself to such a Sikh in mysterious ways.
