Sikhs who have been through the Amrit ceremony
of initiation become Amritdhari, initiated Sikhs.
Babal Nihal Singh leads his men in a procession through Anandpur Sahib, the small town in Punjab where Guru Gobind Singh lived and conducted the first Amrit Ceremony.
The Amrit Ceremony, a form of baptism devised by Guru Gobind Singh in 1699, is a cornerstone of Sikhism.
This ceremony, called the Amrit ceremony
, first took place in 1699, under Guru Gobind Singh's direction, and Guru Gobind Singh, in an act of humility, asked his disciples to formally induct him also through this ceremony.
