The Bhai Family Of Bagrian
Glimpse|July 2019

The house of Bagrian is closely linked with the spread of Sikhism in the Malwa region of Punjab. Guru Arjun Dev Ji and later Guru Hargobind Sahib baptised the successive descendants of the family, i.e. Sindhu and Rup Chand. In recognition of the services of Rup Chand in the Sikh cause, Guru Hargobind named him as his own brother and bestowed on him the benediction of langer, a free kitchen, which to this day feeds the poor and those who visit the place. This benevolence was further graced when the last Guru, ordained that the descendants of the family would be considered as his descendants. Two of the brothers from the Bagrian family had accompanied Guru Gobind Singh to Nanded Sahib.

The House of Bagrian has been in the service of the Panth almost for four centuries. The Gurus have blessed the House to render service to humanity and spread the teachings of the Gurus far and wide. The benediction of langar was bestowed upon Bhai Roop Chand by the sixth Guru Har Gobind Sahib ji. The first Langar ever, was served at Bagrian Fort, more than 300 years ago, by Rup Chand. That tradition continues even today. More than 300 people are served Dal and Roti every single day. The House of Bagrian has served the cause of Sikh faith for centuries. The House of Bagrian has been held in high esteem by all the Sikh Maharajas. From cradle to the cremation, all ceremonies of the Sikh Royals are performed by the Bhai Sahib of Bagrian. Guru Teg Bahadurji decided that Bhai Roop Chand will perform the marriage ceremony of Guru Gobind Singh ji. So this legendary service was showered upon Bhai Sahib and He performed the marriage ceremony.
