Sant Baba Biram Dass ji was also a Kar Sewak who spent most of his life in Kar Sewa. Kar Sewak Baba Gurmukh Singh ji was born in year 1849 AD to father S. Karam Singh Ji and Mata Gurdai Kaur Ji. The love for humanity and the spirit of Sewa took Baba Gurmukh Singh ji and Baba Sadhu Singh (cousin of Baba Gurmukh Singh ji) to Kar Sewak Biram Dass ji, who preached them to follow the path of Sewa and renounce the binding ties of the materialistic world.
