When Guru Ram Das ji visited Barath in AD 1577, Babaji was in deep in meditation. Guru ji waited patiently for 2 days. When Babaji came out, Guru ji offered him Rs500, and other gifts of clothing and sweets. They were very happy to see each other. Guruji recited his bani to Babaji’s delight. Guru ji shared his plan for Harmandir Sahib and its holy srovar). Baba ji reminded Guru Ram Das ji of the history of the Amrit srovar (sacred tank) and suggested that the city’s name be changed from Ram Das Pur to Amritsar.

When Babaji visited Amritsar in AD 1579, Guru Ram Das ji received him warmly, and with great respect seated Babaji on a higher seat than his own. Babaji praised Guru ji. One day in a lighter mood Babaji quipped, "Guru Ram Das ji, you have such a long beard!" Guru ji in his unequalled humility replied, "It is to wipe the lotus feet of great men like you," and actually bent forward to demonstrate.
