Guru Tegh Bahadur was the youngest sun of Guru Har Gobind Ji and Mata Nanki. He was born in Amrtisar on April 1, 1621. He had spent his early years mainly in meditation with God and spent his latter years as the Guru in spreading the teachi...ngs of Guru Nanak and spreading the joy of worship to God with humanity. Guruji is honored and remembered as the man who championed the rights for all religious freedom. He sacrificed his own life to save the Hindus from religious persecution from the Mughal Emperor Aurangzeb. He became the ninth guru of the Sikh religion on March 20th, 1665 after the untimely demise of his grand-nephew Guru Har Krishan Ji. He traveled far and wide spreading kindness, wisdom and blessings to all no matter their caste and social standing. He helped countless poor and hardship stricken people and also built many centers of Sikh religious teachings and temples.He was named Tyal Mal (master of detachment). At the tender age of 13, he joined his father at the battle of Kartarpur against Painde Khan and Mughal forces over Shah Jahan's hawk and showed great courage and excellence in wielding his sword. The Sikhs was very proud with their hero and Named him Tegh Bahadur(master of swordsmanship).He learnt Sankrit, Hindi, Gurmukhi, Archery and Swordsmanship from a very young age from Baba Buddha, Bhai Gurdas and his father.He was married to Mata Gujri in 1632 and moved to Bakala village with his family and mother as was instructed by his father. For the next twenty years the Master of Detachment spent most of his time in an underground room absorbed in meditation. He was originally named Tyag Mal by his father who later renamed Tegh Bahadur after his gallant displays of sword fighting in the wars against the Mughal forces. He built the city of Anandpur Sahib, and was responsible for saving the Kashmiri Pandits, who were being persecuted by the Mughals. Guru Tegh Bahadur toured various parts of India, and was requested by Gobind Sahali to construct several domes in Mahali.He contributed many hymns to the Guru Granth Sahib including the Saloks (Mahal 9) near the end of the Guru Granth Sahib, which are extremely popular He had ony one son Guru Gobind Singh Ji who later succeeded him and became the 10th Guru of the Sikhs.He is remembered to have built the city of Anandpur Sahib. Never in the annals of history has the religious leader of one religion sacrificed his life to save the freedom of another religion. He had sacrificed his life upholding the "right to freedom of religion".". He was responsible for saving Kashmiri Hindu pandits who being persecuted by the Mughals, but had to lay down his own life to protect their freedom of religion. Guru Tegh Bahadur was martyred by Emperor Aurangzeb because he would not become a Muslim on November 11, 1675 . The Gurdwara Sis Ganj Sahib in Chandni Chowk, Delhi, was built over where the Guru was beheaded, and Gurdwara Rakab Ganj Sahib, also in Delhi, is built on the site of the residence of Lakhi Shah Vanjara, a disciple of the Guru, who burnt his house in order to cremate the Guru's body.On November 16, 1675 at Anandpur Sahib, a pyre of sandalwood was constructed, sprinkled with roses and the head of Guru Tegh Bahadur was cremated by young Gobind.Let us join to pay our humble obeisance to His lotus feet and seek His bliss for well-being of all living-being of this universe!
