Baba Budha Ji spent many years looking after the "bir", literally a reserved forest used for cattle grazing, said to have been offered to Guru Arjan by Chaudhari Langah of Patti out of his private lands.

According to Gurbilas Chhevin Patshahi, it was here on 21 Assu 1651 Bikramik (20th September 1594), that Mata Ganga the wife of Guru Arjan, received blessings for an illustrious son (the future Guru Hargobind, Nanak VI) from Baba Budha.

When Mata Ganga, the wife of the fifth Sikh Guru desired the blessings of a son from her husband, Guru Arjan Sahib Ji, he suggested that she pay a visit to Baba Budha Ji to ask for the gift. Mata Ji had delicious food prepared by her attendees and visited Baba Ji at this venue with great pomp. But Baba ji refused to accept the food.

Later Mata Ji herself prepared a simple and basic meal of "missi roti and pyaag" (basic Indian bread and onion) and visited Baba Ji. Baba Budda Ji blessed Mata Ji by telling her that her son would be a great warrior and he will crush the tyrant heads as he simultaneously crushed the onion with a clinched fist. Consequently, Mata Ji and Guru Arjan were blessed with a one son who later became the sixth Sikh Guru, Guru Hargobind.
