Baba Atal Ji was the son of Guru Hargobind Ji and Mata Nanaki
Ji. He was born at Amritsar on 23 October 1619. In Gurbilas
Cheevin Patshahi, the story of his extraordinary death is
mentioned. He died when he was nine years old. The story goes
Atal Rai had a friend by the name of Mohan. One day while
playing till late evening Atal Rai won. Both the friends mutually
agreed that Mohan would take the turn the next day. At night
Mohan was stung by a snake and died on the spot. Atal Rai
Ji went to see him at his home. He saw his family members
wailing and crying badly. Baba Atal Ji went near his friend's
body and touched his body with a stick saying: get up Mohan.
It is not the time for a sleep
. Why are you sleeping
soundly? You owe us forfeit." Mohan stood up. The news
spread like fire. Guru Hargobind Ji became annoyed. He told
Atal Rai Ji to not to go against God's providence.
Atal Rai Ji felt guilty and went to take plunge in the holy
water. After reciting Jaap Sahib, he went to his eternal repose
on 13 September 1628.
