Beautiful and soul stirring..veer Ji THANKS for a good read.
There cannot be a Shaheed of the stature of Guru arjun Ji...Guru ji as a child climbed into the loving lap of his Maternal Grandfather Guru Amardass Ji...and The Third nanak...gave him love and said..Guru Dohta..Bani da Bohitha. Meaning this is MY grandson..He will be a Virtual SHIP of GURBANI. How TRUE this mukhvaak came out to be..more than HALF of GURBANI in GURU GRANTH JI is by Guru Arjun Ji.
Guru ji faced great tribulations, enmity from within his household, enmity and jealousy without...from the enmies of Sikhe who couldnt stand the wild-fire spread of this new and vibrant faith. This Man of GOD and PEACE and BROTHERHOOD to all...writer of the SUKHMANI Psalm of Peace... was Brutally tortured to DEATH by seating him on a Burning Hot plate, boiling him alive in a pot of water, and pouring of Hot sand over his head....and finally killed by dipping him in the ice cold waters of the Ravi.Reference:: Sikh Philosophy Network http://www.sikhphilosophy.net/showthread.php?t=4279
But before that Guru Arjun Ji had suceeded in Establishing a Firm Foundation of PIRI by establishing the Harimandir sahib, Amrtisar as Centre of Sikhe..MIRI would be established by His son and Sixth nanak Guru hargobind Ji...who built the Akal Takhat.
It is an established FACT that the SIKH GURUS founded TOWNS, set up Craft centres, built schools, dug wells, built sarovars, even more than the Govt of the day. They were the Real "masters of the Hearts of the Peoples"..and that was why the Govt was JEALOUS....jealous enough to "shut them down"....even to the extent of torturing them to death.Reference:: Sikh Philosophy Network http://www.sikhphilosophy.net/showthread.php?t=4279
Dhan Dhan Guru Arjun Ji maharaj.
