With the world Lamented, the gods hailed his arrival in heavens.


"Through whom (Guru Tegh Bahadur) the Lord saved the tilak and sacred thread of these people (Hindus)

For the sake of God's saints, Guru Tegh Bahadur laid down his life.
His head was severed, but not a groan did he utter.

For the sake of righteousness he enacted this tragic episode.
He gave up his head, but not his persistence to do right.

No one can excel the pure loftiness of what Tegh Bahadur did;
The world of men was in grief when he left this earth.

But the world of gods was filled with the joy of his great triumph."

(From Bachittar Natak. Translation by Prof. Puran Singh)

Theekar fore dilees sir, Prabh par kiyo payan,
Tegh Bahadur si kriya, Kari na kinhoo aan.
Tegh Bahadur ke chalat, Bhayo jagat main sog.
Hai hai hai sab jag bhayo, Jai jai jai sur log.

He burst the bonds of mortal clay
And went on to the abode of God.
No one ever performed an act as noble
As did Tegh Bahadur.

With the departure of Tegh Bahadur
The world was stricken with sorrow.
A wail of horror rent the earth,
A victor's welcome by the dwellers of heaven.

Bichitra Natak
