Happy Gurpurb - Prakaash Divas of Dasam Pitaa


Today is the 341st Prakaash Diwas (Birth Day) of

Guru Gobind Singh Sahib jee

---Sariaa Nu Lakh Lakh Vadhaaee---


A GLIMPSE AT THE LIFE OF GURU GOBIND SINGH SAHIB JEE


Sacrificed entire family
In any other religion you don't hear how the Prophet or leader sleeps. However, in Sikhi we remember in our history how our Tenth Father slept in the Machheewala Jungle. Despite losing his father, mother, four sons, home, wealth and followers, the Guru slept as if nothing had happened. A Dervish mocked the Guru and said “guroo rehgiaa kalaa kalaa” (the Guru remains alone, alone). The Guru replied: “nehee, guroo de naal allaah allaah” (No, with the Guru there is Allah, Allah). Guru Sahib exemplified the attitude and psyche of always remaining positivistic and in Chardi Kalaa (high spirits).

Inauguration of Khalsa (sovereign) – Vaisakhi 1699
Through creating the Khalsa the Guru rested leadership with the community. Guru Sahib carried on the tradition of Amrit from Guru Nanak Sahib jee, which was whereby the follower is spiritually reborn and commits himself or herself to a new life with a distinct lifestyle, morals and principles. Through Amrit, Guru Gobind Singh Sahib jee eradicated stereotypes of who comes into the idealistic community.


40 Mukte
40 Sikhs deserted Guru Gobind Singh Sahib jee and wrote a letter of disownment saying, “We are not your Sikhs, and you are not our Guru.” However, realising they were wrong through speaking to their wives, the 40 Sikhs returned and fought defending the Guru in battle. As a last wish, the leader of the 40 Sikhs asked the Guru to tear up the letter of disownment. Guru Gobind Singh Sahib jee forgave them. This shows that the relationship with the Guru is most important and that Guru will always give us another chance and forgive our past.


Reference:: Sikh Philosophy Network http://www.sikhphilosophy.net/showthread.php?t=14821
Mai Bhago jee
She led the 40 deserted Sikhs back to Guru Gobind Singh Sahib jee and to fight alongside them in the battle. Mai Bhago (properly known as Mata Bhaag Kaur jee) was the personal bodyguard of Guru jee for 7 months and is a role model of leadership and decision-making.


Baba Banda Singh Bahadar jee
Meeting Guru Gobind Singh Sahib jee, Madho Daas, a misguided spiritual mystic, was transformed to Gurbaksh Singh, a Saint-Warrior. He was a role of leadership and decision-making to establish Khalsa Raaj. He ruled in accordance to the Guru’s teachings of leadership resting in the ‘Khalsa Panchayat’, which is a board of 5 spiritually wise and practicing Sikhs, with the chief executive officer (the Jathedaar) being the executor of decisions.

Summary
Bhai Nand Lal Singh Ji writes in his poetry that if one word could describe and summarise Guru Gobind Singh Sahib jee's life, that word be "COURAGE." Guru Sahib not only showed courage in his psyche, personality and life however instilled courage into his followers to always remain victorious as victory always belongs to Vaheguru.

Re: A GLIMPSE AT THE LIFE OF GURU GOBIND SINGH SAHIB JEE - by Manvir Singh

Friends,

I really enjoyed this essay very much. Especially the part about Chardi Kala. Is there a reason why Guru Gobind's dev ji 's eyes are replaced with text, that is small and difficult to make out? Does anyone else think that it makes Guru look a little unfriendly?

Sometimes people who are out of the loop can misunderstand something like this. Would appreciate any information.

Machiwara jungle sakhi is very important as that was the time, when Guru sahib created - Mitar pyare nu haal mureeda da kehna... In those tough circumstances, what did He do? He did shukrana (Thanks) to Waheguru. The two words Mitar and Mureed in one tuk is another great piece of creation.

I see IkOnkaar instead of face, which is an innovative way to present thoughts. However, as Guru sahib has human body, the face also should be resembling a human... just my opinion.

Regards.
