A tribute to Guru Gobind Singh, tenth Guru of Sikhism as flashed on the f.b. on April 14,2011.

Bishwa Nath Singh

Guru  Gobind Singh was born on December 22, 1666, at Patna Sahib (Bihar).His Parents were Guru Teg Bahadur Sahib Sodhi and Gujri ji. After the Sacrifice of the ninth Guru of the Sikhs, the tenth Guru, Guru Gobind Singh took charge of the Sikh masses in 1675 AD and like his grand father the sixth Guru, Guru Har Gobind, he took to arms. Thus Guru Gobind Singh was a challenge to the Great King Aurangzeb, who ruled from Kanyakumari in the South to Kabul in the North of India. He was the tenth and the last Guru of the Sikhs who established the Khalsa Panth. He was a great scholar and warrior. He fought by word and by sword against injustice, tyranny and superstition.

Bishwa Nath Singh The accomplishments of Guru Gobind Singh as a human-being could be summarized as follows: (1). He used to preach that people should live with self respect, he lived like a king - riding the most beautiful horses, sporting a falcon on his hand, wearing a beautiful turban with a decorated Kalgi and always carried sword, bow and arrows. Like his grand-father, he also kept big drum with him and called it 'Ranjit Nagara' and used it like that of the kings. (2.) Moghyl King Auragazeb did not want people of other religion to worship in public. But Guru Gobind Singh declared that the Sikh place of worship (A Gurudwara) must display a lofty flag, visible from a long distance and keep a big 'Drum' (Nagara). He said that Gurudwara is a place of God and it must give free food to the hungry and shelter to the needy irrespective of caste, creed or religion. No ritualistic type of worshipping like burning of candles, ringing of bells etc. is to be permit, instead, only reading, singing and discourses in praise of God and asking for His Blessings should be conducted. This is to teach oneself that man is a big zero, he is ten only when God is with him. (3). He had given birth to Khalsa, a classless society of saint-soldiers with the above virtues for all the times to come and(4.) he had uprooted the cruel rulers. It was not an easy task to achieve all this. It is said that the basic causes of wars in this world are: Wealth, Land and Women but in the case of Guru Gobind Singh it was none of them. It was all for self respect dignity and freedom. Anandpur Sahib, a place at the base of hills, purchased and populated by his father, Guru Teg Bahadur, was the center of activities of the Guru and the Sikhs since 1671 AD to 1704 AD. In a period of about twenty years, He had sacrificed all his four sons who were brutally bkilled and her mother who had died in the Prison on a shock.Let us pay our humble oobeisance to His lotus feet and seek His bliss for well-being of all living-being of this universe!His sacrifice can't go unheeded and that is why we hold him in great respect.
