The great Last sikh guru Guru Gobind Singh perhaps could easily be considered the greatest human to have ever taken birth on this planet Earth. He, is an unparalleled hero not in the history of India but in the world history too. A brave man of firm convictions he stood for the secularism, democratic principles and pleaded for man's rights. He lived and worked for the upliftment of poor, needy, and down-trodden people of our country irrespective of their caste, religion or sect. Apart from being a great virtuous and pious man, Guru Govind Singh Ji Maharaj was a well-read person too. He was a linguist and well-versed in Indian classical languages and Persian, Puranic literature, Hindi poetics, Arabic, Punjabi and other martial arts. His Jaap Sahib (written by him at 19 ) a morning prayer is considered a masterpiece by many scholars and intellectuals of different religion .Besides, shooting and hunting, the writing of verses was also a passion of young Gobind. He realized that it is the cultural and heroic outlook which can make a nation strong. He learned Sri Guru Granth Sahib by heart. Guru Govind Singh was a great warrior also. He was an outstanding general and an excellant administrator.He fought many battles against tyranny, suppression, oppression and in-tolerance. He did not fight for any territory or worldly power, nor did he fight against any religion or sect or for his personal gains. His war was mainly against oppression,inequality and tyranny. He was a fine blend of a saint, soldier and a scholar whose mission was to eradicate evil and spread good. There were innumerable people who were greatly influenced by his personality, his philosphy of religion and his sense of sacrifice. The Great Yogi allah yaar khan wrote as follows abt Guru gobind singh ji while comparing his greatness to some other famous personalities Dandak main phire ram to sita thi bagal main, (when ram was given exile his wife sita was with her) woh fakhre jahan hind ki mata thi bagal main, (Hindustan or hindus or ism which claims to be the oldest civilazation in this world, her mother sita was with him, well the poet actually is saying that what was this exile if compared to the king of kings Guru gobind singh ji’s life, the tenth master cared for humanity not his family, friends or peers, his whole life was an exile starting from the age of 9 when he himself sacrificed his father by saying that who else can save hindu or ism, ) Lachman(Laxman) sa biradar bhaye takhsine jigar tha, (brother like laxman was with him, here the poet is referring to the tenth master Guru gobind singh ji,in machiwara where he was all by himself after sacrificing his sons,while the poet points that ram(lord rama or god) wept when laxman lost consciousness and regained consciousness after hanuman brought sanjiwani butti, while my satguru the tenth master in machiwara when he lost everything : his anandpur,his family including his 4 sons(sahebzadaas), his mother mata gujri ji, his army, and barefooted rendered friendless and helpless he never lost courage. In the jungles of Machhiwara, barefoot and hungry, he remained firm and sang a merry song: he is not even complaining but saying: "O give Him this news of me, Without You O Lord, the luxury of soft beds is full of pain and discomfort, Pleasures of palaces are like living among snakes, The thorns that ***** my feet are now my flask for drink. The dagger that is pursuing me is my cup, O Lord. Without Thy grace O Lord, comforts are nothing but a butcher's knife. The bed on the ground is heaven to me, Lord, if Thou art with me, Burnt be the rich dwellings. they are hell to me if I forget Thee." Sach kehta hoon gobind ka rutba hi digar ha, (I swear that the status of Guru gobind singh ji is unique, here the poet is referring to the greatness of Guru gobind singh ji, he says that no prophet has appeared in this world who made his disiciples sit on throne , here the poet refers from Guru gobind singh ji’s words "Khalsa mero roop hai khaas. The Khalsa is my complete image Khalse maih hau karo nivaas. I dwell in the khalsa Khalsa mero mukh hai ang-aa. Khalsa is my chief organ Khalse ke hau sadh sadh sang-aa. I am always with the khalsa Khalsa mero mitr sakhaa-ee Khalsa is my closest friend Khalsa maat pitaa sukhdaa-ee Khalsa is my mother, father & source of all comforts. Khalsa meri jaat ar pat. Khalsa is my caste & creed. Khalsa sau maa kau utapat. My creation is through the khalsa Khalsa mero bhavan bhand-aa-raa. I dwell in the khalsa who is a storehouse of all my requirements. Khalse kar mero satk-aa-raa. I am honoured because of the khalsa. Khalsa mero pind par-aan. Khalsa is my body & breath. Khalsa meri jaan ki jaan. Khalsa is my life & soul Khalsa mera satgur poor-aa Khalsa is my full-fledged Guru. Khalsa mera sajan soor-aa. Khalsa is my brave friend. Khalsa mero budh ar giaan. Khalsa is my wisdom & knowledge. Khalse ka hau dhar-au dhiaan. I always contemplate the khalsa prayerfully Upmaa khalsae jaath na kahi Eulogy of the khalsa is beyond me. Jihv-aa ek paar nah lahi. I cannot fathom full praise of the khalsa with one tongue. Ya mai ranch na mithe-aa bhaakh-ee. I certify that I have not mis-stated anything in the foregoing. Paarbrahm gur Nanak saak-ee. God & Guru Nanak are my witnesses to endorse the foregoing truth Katwa diye sheesh shaam ne geeta ko suna kar, (hindu god krishan made brothers fight with brothers, i.e kaurava and pandavas by giving updesh(discourse) of geeta quote from geeta which poet quotes "yada yada hi dharmasya galani bharvati bharata, abhyuthanam adharamsaya tada tanam srija mahayam","whenever there is a decay of righteousness,O Bharata, and a rise of unrighteousness, then I manifest myself in every age" while Guru gobind singh ji said "main hoon param purakh ko dasa dekhan aayo jagat tamasha" , "mau ko parmeswar jo uchare te sab narak kund main jaaye" "Those who call me God, will fall into the deep pit of hell. Regard me as one of his slaves and have no doubt whatever about it. I am a servant of the Supreme Being; and have come to behold the wonderful drama of life." He led by example, sacrificed his father(hind ki chadar Guru tegh bahadur saheb ji), his four sons, his anandpur, everything he had) Rooh phuk di gobind ne aulaad katakar (Guru gobind singh ji immolated his soul by sacrificing his sons but still lived for khalsa and complained to none) Bulleh Shah is classed with Kabir and is said to belong to the Saint tradition of the SufisHe hailed Guru Gobind Singh, the tenth Sikh Guru, as a protector of Hinduism: "Na kahun abh kee, na kahun tab kee, agar na hote Guru Gobind Singh, to sunnat hoti sab kee." - Baba Bulle Shah I talk about neither yesterday nor tomorrow; I talk about today. Had Gobind Singh not been there, They would all be under Islamic sway. - Baba Bulle Shah Bhai Nand Lal Ji, the person who stayed with Dhan Sri Guru Gobind Singh Ji so closely and he understood his personality too deeply than any body else. Bhai Nand Lal (Singh) Ji wrote a book in the praise of Dasam Guru named "Ganjnama" or "The Book of Treasures". He describes Guru Gobind Singh Ji as:- SAD HAZAARAAN SULS-O SUDS KHIDMAT GUZEEN V SAD HAZAARAAN RUBEH-O TISYA KHAAK NASHIN Lacs of gods and shastras have chosen to serve him; lacs of Vedas and heavens are under his command. SAD HAZAARAAN ASHR-O SULS-O SULSOON SITA-INDEH-E BARGAAHASH SAD HAZAARAAN EESHAR-O BRAHMAA V ARSH-O KURSI KHAHIND-EH-E PANAAHASH Lacs of gods and angels praise the splendor of his palace; lacs of gods like Shiv and Brahama are wishing to be near his throne for protection. Rabindra Nath Tagore a great admirer of Sikhism was so much influenced by Guru Gobind Singh that he kept a long beard and was often visiting Darbaar Sahib. Daulat Rai an Hindu Arya Samajist in his book "Sahib e Kamaal Guru Gobind Singh"(a must read) has clearly stated that considering guru gobind singh's life and his sacrifices no other prophet can be compared to him although Guru never considered himself to be a prophet but a mere servant of the almighty.
