murari bapu hails from gujrat he is an religious scholar of Hinduism who teaches tenets of Hinduism to people through various mediums like aastha channel or sanskar channel and public speeches The journalist Mahesh Llanga told me this lovely story of Murari Bapu. It seems pregnant shark whales would… beach on the Gujarat coast, especially between Somnath and Dwarka. This patch has one of the largest concentrations of fishermen, and they used to beat the whales to death. Whale meat commands huge prices in the export market. Witnessing this, wildlife activists appealed to Murari Bapu, who agreed to talk to the fishermen. Murari Bapu had a simple message. He asked the fishermen: how can you beat the shark whale? She is your daughter who's come home to rest. The fishermen then virtually adopted the whale as a totem. No secular environmentalist, no Greenpeace movement could have spoken such a language or had such a profound impact. (MORE)

Death Wazir Khan, the Nawab of Sirhind, felt uneasy about any conciliation between Guru Gobind Singh and Bahadur Shah I. He commissioned two Pathans, Jamshed Khan and Wasil Beg , to assassinate the Guru. The two secretly pursued the Guru and got an opportunity to attack him at Nanded. According …to Sri Gur Sobha by the contemporary writer Senapati, Jamshed Khan stabbed the Guru in the left side below the heart while he was resting in his chamber after the Rehras prayer. Guru Gobind Singh killed the attacker with his Sabre, while the attacker's fleeing companion was killed by the Sikhs who had rushed in on hearing the noise. The European surgeon sent by Bahadar Shah stitched the Guru's wound. However, the wound re-opened and caused profuse bleeding, as the Guru tugged at a hard strong bow after a few days. Seeing his end was near, the Guru declared the Granth Sahib as the next Guru of the Sikhs, . He then sang his self-composed hymn:. "Agya bhai Akal ki tabhi chalayo Panth Sabh Sikhan ko hukam hai Guru manyo Granth Guru Granth Ji manyo pargat Guran ki deh Jo Prabhu ko milbo chahe khoj shabad mein le Raj karega Khalsa aqi rahei na koe Khwar hoe sabh milange bache sharan Jo hoe." . Translation of the above:. "Under orders of the Immortal Being, the Panth was created. All the Sikhs are enjoined to accept the Granth as their Guru. Consider the Guru Granth as embodiment of the Gurus. Those who want to meet God, can find Him in its hymns. The Khalsa shall rule, and its opponents will be no more, Those separated will unite and all the devotees shall be saved .

Guru Gobind Singh Ji was born on the December 22, 1666. However in 2013 his birthday is celebrated on the 5th of January 2013.
Guru Gobind Singh Didnt change his name... The only thing diff is Singh in his name which came after the birth of khalsa and after the punj piyaray were created.
Guru Gobind Singh Ji's Jyoti Jot (death) is 1708. That answers your question! yh by afua
This is a collection of hymns, and poems, written be devout Muslims and Hindus. This collection was first known Adi Granth, or "first book". It was declared that this collection should be the Guru for all time. The book is treated as one would treat a highly honored human Guru. It always has its… own room, and when ever it is moved it is attended be five Sikhs, who represent the Tanj Pyares ("five beloved"), the five men who came forward to start the Khalsa. . It is a holy book that is the guru for khalsa. The guru granth sahib has prayers and kirtan. . Clarification: The Guru Granth is the final Guru, and it contains all the teachings of the Gurus. (MORE)
Because he was the last Guru. He decided not to give his role over to a human, so instead he wrote down all he knew in the Sikhs holy book the Guru Granth Sahib.
The tenth Guru of Sikhs, Guru Gobind Singh Ji, declared "Guru Granth Sahib Ji" as the eternal and perpetual Guru of the Sikhs. Generally, speaking outside Sikhism Guru Granth Sahib Ji is seen just as a holy scripture or a holy book as Holy Bible or Koran but within Sikhism it is not seen as holy scr…ipture but is treated as a living embodiment of Sikh Gurus and considered as their final Guru.

Since the time of Guru Arjan Dev Ji, the relationship between the ruling power Mughals and the Sikhs began to deteriorate. Guru Arjan Dev Ji was the first martyr of Sikhs, Guru Hargobind was imprisioned in Gwalior by the Mughal ruler Jahangir.Then the ninth Guru of Sikhs, Guru Tegh Bahadur was execu…ted by Mughal ruler Aurangzgeb.Guru Gobind Singh Ji lost his 4 fours, wife and mother while fighting with the Mughals. Please note, Guru Tegh Bahadur was the father of Guru Gobind Singh Ji. Considering the reason for all these conflicts between Sikhs and Mughals was one's freedom to practice one's faith. Historically, except Akbar all other Mughal Emperors of India from Jahangir, Shahjahan, Aurangzgeb were intolerant rulers and thus disliked the growth of any other religion except their own. From the time of Guru Arjan Dev Ji to Guru Gobind Singh Ji, all Sikhs guru fought for the freedom of one's right to practice one's faith. As most Mughal ruler were Muslims they were interested in converting others into accepting Islam. One very prominent example was the case of Kashmiri Brahmins who appraoched Guru Tegh Bahadur as Aurangzgeb wanted them to quit Hinduism and accept Islam. Guru Tegh Bahadur accepted the request of Kashmiri Brahmins and faced Aurangzgeb which resulted in Guru Tegh Bahadur's execution but he didn't accept Islam. Therefore, eventually Guru Gobind Singh Ji created Khalsa and its creation was not any development of any ritual or any new practice but since each one of us hold our own view and that we have our right to hold our view, thus creating Khalsa was to give a Sikh an identity of its own.It was and it is not to be meant to separate itself from other but to hold its own distinct position. Please note historically speaking there are many situations where Sikhs and Muslims have faced each other but these should not reflect on position on the Sikh Gurus and Sikh Bhagats who throughout maintained oneness of the God and have used not just their own distinct names of God but even Hindu names as well Muslims names of God in the Sikh Holy Book. If a student don't study well, it is the student who is to be blamed not the teacher who teaches all the same. In the same way, Akbar was tolerant enough to see equality in all but the rest fell short of his view, therefore the conflicts was with Muslims not with Islam. The point here is that God has given every single individual the right to listen and obey his/her word and thus no one has the right to impose or question anyone the right to practice one's faith.

he got stabbed in the left side below the heart then the open wound was closed but it re-opened and he died or that's what i found out
Simply NO. Guru Gobind Singh founded the order of the Khalsa to fight against the tyranny of the Mughal rule of his time (note that some Mughal emperors were fairer rulers of Hindustan than others. An example of a more liberal emperor is Akbar, whereas emperors like Aurangzeb lead regimes involving …forced mass conversion to Islam). (MORE)
Guru Gobind Singh Ji gave their place(guru gadi) to Guru Granth Sahib Ji 11th guru. Guru ji soon set up a tent and told his sikhs he was going. Guru ji got all ready and put fire on the wood.

Guru Gobind Singh was born on December 22, 1666 and died on October 7, 1708. Guru Gobind Singh would have been 41 years old at the time of death or 348 years old today.
The Guru Granth Sahib was founded 300 years ago. I think it might be 1600. I am not sure!!!
Guru Gobind Singh Ji was born in1666 but there is no official date because he was born many many years ago.
Shri Guru Gobind Singh Ji never asked anyone to die; however, I think I have an inkling to what you may possibly mean by your question. ~ Below, I have included the history behind the punj pyare. . The story of Baisakhi Festival began with the martyrdom of Guru Teg Bahadur, the ninth Sikh Gu…ru who was publicly beheaded by the Aurungzeb, the Mughal ruler. Aurungzeb wanted to spread Islam in India and Guru Tegh Bahadur stood up for the rights of Hindus and Sikhs and the Mughals therefore saw him as a threat. After the death of Guru Teg Bahadur, his son, Guru Gobind Singh became the next Guru of the Sikhs. Guru Gobind Singh wished to instill courage and strength to sacrifice among his fellow men. To fulfil his dream, Guru Gobind Singh called on the historic Baisakhi Day congregation of Sikhs at Keshgarh Sahib near Anandpur on March 30, 1699. When thousands of people assembled for Guru's blessing, Guru Gobind Singh came out of the tent carrying an unsheathed sword. He gave a powerful speech to infuse courage amongst fellowmen. At the end of the speech he said that every great deed was preceded by equally great sacrifice and demanded that anyone prepared to give his life come forward. On the Guru's third call, a young man offered himself. The Guru took the man inside a tent and reappeared alone with a bloodied sword. Guru Gobind Singh asked for another volunteer. This was repeated another four times until a total of five Sikhs had gone into the tent with the Guru. Everyone present was worried and though that Guru Gobind Singh has killed five Sikhs. At this point Guru presented all the five men before the people. Every one present was surprised to see all five men alive and wearing turbans and saffron-coloured garments. These five men were called Panj Pyare or 'The Five Beloved Ones' by the Guru. The Guru blessed them with a Pahul ceremony. In an iron vessel, the Guru stirred with a sword called Khanda Sahib, the batasha that his wife, Mata Sundari Ji had put into water. The congregation recited verses from scriptures as the Guru performed the sacred ceremony. The water was now considered the sacred nectar of immortality called amrit. It was first given to the five volunteers, then drunk by the guru and later distributed amongst the crowd. With this ceremony, all those present, irrespective of caste or creed, became members of the Khalsa Pantha (the Order of the Pure Ones). The Guru regarded the Panch Piaras as the first members of the Khalsa and the embodiment of the Guru himself. With the constitution of the Panj Pyare the high and low castes were amalgamated into one as among the original Panj Pyare, there was one Khatri, shopkeeper; one Jat, farmer; one Chhimba, calico printer; one Ghumar, water-carrier; and one Nai, a barber. The Guru gave the surname of Singh (Lion) to every Sikh and also took the name for himself. From Guru Gobind Rai he became Guru Gobind Singh. This was seen as a great step in national integration because society at that time was divided on the basis of religion, caste and social status. Guru Gobind Singh also bestowed on Khalsa, the unique Sikh identity. He directed Sikhs to wear five K's: Kesh or long hair, Kangha or comb, Kripan or dagger, Kachha or shorts and a Kara or bracelet. Guru Gobind Singh also discontinued the tradition of Gurus and asked all Sikhs to accept the Grantha Sahib as their eternal guide. He urged them to come to him with their hair and beard unshorn to get baptized by the sword. (MORE)
Sikhs DO NOT worship Guru Nanak. They worship the Divine Light of God that is in Guru Nanak. Guru Nanak is NOT a deity in the Sikh religion, he is a teacher. Sikhs still bow today to Guru Granth Sahib. That does not mean they worship it, it means they revere the Divine Knowledge that it contains.
guru gobind rai changed his name from gobind rai to gobind singh because after he gave the 5 pyare amrit he gave a new name to the khalsa. he said that every man's last name would be singh and the girl's kaur so everyone would be equal and no one would be racist if someone is a jatt or chumar.
Guru gobind Singh was the founder of the Khalsa. He was the first to revolt against the Mughal tyranny. He was a true Sikh and he did not care for his life as long as that led to the welfare of his people. Originally, the Sikhs were never a warlike tribe but Guru Gobind saw the need to step up and f…ight against the tyrants. This is why he is considered a hero by one and all. (MORE)
Guru Nanak Dev Ji is the founder of what is called Sikhism. He started the religon and wrote 974 verse in Sri Guru Granth Sahib. Guru Gobind Singh Ji was the tenth Guru. He named the Sri Guru Granth Sahib (Sikhs Holy Scripture) as the last Guru to try to prevent further changes in Sikhism. He also f…ounded the Khalsa ( saint-soldiers ) on April 13th, 1699. This was an order of Sikhs who were founded to defend the defenseless in the name of Waheguru (God). At one time it was said you could go up to a Khalsa and slap him (or her) and he (or she) would not strike you, however if you attacked another person they would try to stop you. For that purpose they carried a Kirpan ( hand of mercy) which is a knife or sword. Unfortunately some groups view the Khalsa as the only true Sikhs. However the current Guru of the Sikhs, the Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji, says otherwise. They are not different in anyway except there physical body. Guru Nanak Dev Ji said that he would have the same soul but in 10 diffrent forms and they will build a new race know as the khalsa. (MORE)
Sat naam shri waheguru ji,, I think Guru Gobind Singh was not a leader, Bcoz a leader always do things for own vested interest. He doesnt care about public,, Guru ji is a social server if u read about him than u can easily get his exact personalilty..
1} It is clothed 2} It is put to bed 3} It is considered a "teacher" , as in like a living human being.
He was interested in teaching people that god wanted the world tobe a place where everyone loved everyone and everything waspeaceful (no greed). He was also interested in learning god's waysand teaching people.
Guru Nanak travelled far and wide teaching people the message ofone God who dwells in every one of God's creations and constitutesthe eternal Truth. He set up a unique spiritual, social, andpolitical platform based on equality, fraternal love, goodness, andvirtue.It is part of Sikh religious belief …that the spirit of GuruNanak's sanctity, divinity and religious authority descended uponeach of the nine subsequent Gurus when the Guruship was devolved onto them.

You mean Guru Gobind Singh . He was a GURU! . But he was the 10th guru and the one that brought out 'khalsa'. . He also made the 2nd names 'kaur' and 'singh' . He gave Sikhs the 5 k's.
Shri Guru Nanak Dev Ji's vision was to seen everyone as equal, all creation of single caalled "AKAL PURKH".
Wazir Khan, an official of Sirhind who had ordered the death of Guru Gobind Singh's youngest two sons, later sent assassins to kill the guru. They found the guru in Nanded and attacked him after his evening prayer, stabbing him beneath his heart. Guru Gobind Singh fought and killed his assailant. Si…khs rushed to his aid and killed the second man. The wound began to heal after but reopened several days later when the guru attempted to use his bow. Realizing his end had come, Guru Gobind Singh assembled his Sikhs and instructed them that the scripture of the Granth should forever be their irreplaceable guru and guide. Seeing his end was near, the Guru declared the Granth Sahib as the next Guru of the Sikhs,. He then sang his self-composed hymn: "Agya bhai Akal ki tabhi chalayo Panth Sabh Sikhan ko hukam hai Guru manyo Granth Guru Granth Ji manyo pargat Guran ki deh Jo Prabhu ko milbo chahe khoj shabad mein le Raj karega Khalsa aqi rahei na koe Khwar hoe sabh milange bache sharan Jo hoe." Translation of the above: "Under orders of the Immortal Being, the Panth was created. All the Sikhs are enjoined to accept the Granth as their Guru. Consider the Guru Granth as embodiment of the Gurus. Those who want to meet God can find Him in its hymns. The Khalsa shall rule, and its opponents will be no more, those separated will unite and all the devotees shall be saved." (MORE)
Guru's Blue Horse Guru Gobind Singh Ji was famed for his blue coloured horse, in fact Guru Sahib Ji is sometimes known as 'Neelay ghoray whalla' or the owner of the blue horse and many a folk songs and vars sing the exploits of 'Neelay ghoray they swaar' the rider of the blue horse. Just as his g…randfather Guru Hargobind Sahib Ji, Guru Gobind Singh instructed his Sikhs to make offerings of arms and horses in readiness for the turbulent times ahead. In anticipation of this Guru Gobind Singh Ji learnt the art of horsemanship from an early age under the guidance of his maternal uncle Bhai Kirpal Chand. (MORE)
No he said there shall be no more gurus but every thing the past ones have said put it into a book
Yes, Shri Guru Nanak Dev Ji did have a wife. He married Bibi Sulakhani Ji in the year of 1554.
The wrong impression that the Guru had more than one wife was created by those writers who were ignorant of Punjabi culture. Later authors accepted those writings indicating more than one marriage of the Guru and presented it as a royal act. During those days kings, chiefs, and other important peopl…e usually had more than one wife as a symbol of their being great and superior to the common man. Guru Gobind Singh, being a true king, was justified in their eyes to have had more than one wife. This is actually incorrect. In Punjab, there are two and sometimes three big functions connected with marriage, i.e., engagement, wedding, and Muklawa. Big gatherings and singings are held at all these three functions. In many cases, the engagement was held as soon as the person had passed the infant stage. Even today engagements at 8 to 12 years of age are not uncommon in some interior parts of India. The wedding is performed a couple of years after the engagement. After the wedding, it takes another couple of years for the bride to move in with her in laws and live there. This is called Muklawa. A dowry and other gifts to the bride are usually given at this time of this ceremony to help her to establish a new home. Now, the wedding and Muklawa are performed on the same day and only when the partners are adults. A big befitting function and other joyful activities were held at Anand Pur, according to custom, at the time of the engagement of the Guru. The bride, Mata Jeeto Ji, resided at Lahore, which was the capital of the Mughal rulers who were not on good terms with the Gurus. When the time for the marriage ceremony came, it was not considered desirable for the Guru to go to Lahore, along with the armed Sikhs in large numbers. Furthermore, it would involve a lot of traveling and huge expenses, in addition to the inconvenience to the Sangat, younger and old, who wished to witness the marriage of the Guru. Therefore, as mentioned in the Sikh chronicles, Lahore was 'brought' to Anand Pur Sahib for the marriage instead of the Guru going to Lahore. A scenic place a couple of miles to the north of Anand Pur was developed into a nice camp for the marriage. This place was named Guru Ka Lahore. Today, people are going to Anand Pur visit this place as well. The bride was brought to this place by her parents and the marriage was celebrated with a very huge gathering attending the ceremony. The two elaborate functions, one at the time of engagement and the other at the time of the marriage of the Guru, gave the outside observers the impression of two marriages. They had reason to assume this because a second name was also there, i.e., Mata Sundari Ji. After the marriage, there is a custom in the Panjab of giving a new affectionate name to the bride by her inlaws. Mata Jeeto Ji, because of her fine features and good looks, was named Sundari (beautiful) by the Guru's mother. The two names and two functions gave a basis for outsiders to believe that the Guru had two wives. In fact, the Guru had one wife with two names as explained above. Some historians even say that Guru Gobind Singh had a third wife, Mata Sahib Kaur. In 1699, the Guru asked her to put patasas (puffed sugar) in the water for preparing Amrit when he founded the Khalsa Panth. Whereas Guru Gobind Singh is recognized as the spiritual father of the Khalsa, Mata Sahib Kaur is recognized as the spiritual mother of the Khalsa. People not conversant with the Amrit ceremony mistakenly assume that Mata Sahib Kaur was the wife of Guru Gobind Singh. As Guru Gobind Singh is the spiritual but not the biological father of the Khalsa, Mata Sahib Devan is the spiritual mother of the Khalsa, Mata Sahib Devan is the spiritual mother of the Khalsa but not the wife of Guru Gobind Singh. From ignorance of Punjabi culture and the Amrit ceremony, some writers mistook these three names of the women in the life of Guru Gobind Singh as the names of his three wives. Another reason for this misunderstanding is that the parents of Mata Sahib Devan, as some Sikh chronicles have mentioned, had decided to marry her to Guru Gobind Singh. When the proposal was brought for discussion to Anandpur, the Guru had already been married. Therefore, the Guru said that he could not have another wife since he was already married. The dilemma before the parents of the girl was that, the proposal having become public, no Sikh would be willing to marry her. The Guru agreed for her to stay at Anand Pur but without accepting her as his wife. The question arose, as most women desire to have children, how could she have one without being married. The Guru told, "She will be the "mother" of a great son who will live forever and be known all over the world." The people understood the hidden meaning of his statement only after the Guru associated Mata Sahib Devan with preparing Amrit by bringing patasas. It is, therefore, out of ignorance that some writers consider Mata Sahib Devan as the worldly wife of Guru Gobind Singh. Above decription taken mainly from : the book " The Sikh Faith Questions & Answers " by Gurbaksh Singh USA Mata JITO JI was ji was the wife of Guru Gobind Singh ji (1666-1708), the daughter of Bhai Ram Saran, a Kumarav Khatri of Bijvara, in present-day Hoshiarpur district of the Punjab. Her name JITO JI according to old traditions was changed by her In Laws to be lovingly called as SUNDARI JI . She was married to Guru Gobind Singh at Anandpur on 4 April 1684. Four sons were born to Mata Jito ji/Sundari ji - Baba Ajit Singh ji, Baba Jujhar Singh ji (14 March 1691), Baba Zorawar Singh ji (17 November 1696) and Baba Fateh Singh ji (25 February 1699). Mata Sahib Devan Ji is by tradition mother of the Khalsa, was the daughter of Bhai Har Bhagvan alias Ramu, from clan of a Bassi , and his wife,Jas Devi, a devout Sikh couple of Rohtas, in Jehlum district (now in Pakistan). Her parents had from the beginning dedicated her to the service of Guru Gobind Singh. They took her along as they came to Anandpur on the occasion of the Baisakhi festival of 1700, and disclosed to the Guru their heart's wish to give away their daughter in marriage to him. The Guru, who already had married and was the father of four sons, refused the offer. But when Bhai Har Bhagvan insisted that their daughter had been brought up as a prospective spouse of the Guru and would not countenance marriage with anyone else, he agreed, but made it explicit that she would remain virgin all her life. The nuptials took place at Anandpur on 15 April 1700. Guru Gobind Singh proclaimed Mata Sahib Devan to be the mother of the Khalsa. Ever since the custom has been that, at the time of initiation, the novitiates declare themselves to be the sons and daughters of Guru Gobind Singh and Mata Sahib Devan. Mata Sahib Devan / Sahib Kaur Ji accompanied Guru Gobind Singh to Nanded, but again, shortly before his assassination in early October 1708, she was persuaded to return to Delhi and stay with Mata Sundari. She brought with her from Nanded five weapons said to have originally belonged to Guru Hargobied. From Delhi she, jointly with Mata Sundari, supervised the affairs of the community as is evident from some of the hukamnamas issued to sangats in her name.The exact date of Mata Sahib Devan's death is not known, but it is believed that she passed away some time before Mata Sundari who died in 1747. The available hukamnamas issued by Mata Sahib Devan bear dates between 1726 and 1734 indicating that she must have expired some time between 1734 and 1747. The memorial in her honour stands close to the one commemorating Mata Sundari in the premises of Gurdwara Bala Sahib, New Delhi. The weapons said to have been brought by her from Nanded are preserved as sacred relics in Gurdwara Rikabganj in Parliament Street, New Delhi. (MORE)
There is no doubt that Guru and Waheguru are one and the same. Guru is a form of Waheguru; formed to play the crucial role of freeing the Jeevs from Maya. How do you explain the lines like: jae ham ko paramaesar ouchar hai | thae sabh narak kundd mehi par hai | mo ka dhaas thavan kaa jaano |… yaa mai bhaedh n ranch pashaano | 32 | Translation:- "Those who call me God, will fall into the pit of hell. Regard me as a humble servant of the Lord and have no doubt about it." The lines really are written by Guru Gobind Singh Ji to avoid Sikhs to indulge in the pooja of "Guru Gobind Singh Ji" instead of worshipping the Guru-jyot (Guru Light) in Guru Gobind Singh Ji. The previous avatars like Krishna and Rama did good works but ended up becoming gods themselves and having people worship them. This has been highlighted in Bachitter Natak by Siri Dasmesh jee. In other religions they say "Jai Raam jee kee" or "Jai Sita Raam" or "Har Har Mahadev" (referring to Shiv jee). But in Sikh faith, Guru Sahib never asked us to shout "Guru Gobind Singh Zindabad" or "Guru Gobind Singh kee jai". Instead, we are trained to say "Sat Sri Akaal" and thus paying homage to Waheguru alone. We don't japp the Naam of any Guru and nor it is instructed in Gurbani to do so. We are instructed to japp Naam of Waheguru. This is the greatness of the Ten Guru Sahibaan who were themselves Guru-form of Waheguru but still instructed Sikhs to japp Naam of Waheguru only. These lines of Guru Gobind Singh Ji, quoted in the beginning, are true in the sense that whole of Waheguru, who pervades the whole universe was not restricted in the human body of Guru Gobind Singh Ji as Hindus think he was in the body of Siri Krishna. Guru Arjun Dev Ji has said it very clearly that let that mouth burn that says Thakur comes in joni (takes birth). Waheguru (as a whole) is Ajooni i.e. never takes birth. Our Guru Sahibaan were a form of Waheguru i.e. the Guru Form of Waheguru, created to bring the lost jeev-aatmas on right path. (MORE)
Shri Guru Nanak Dev Ji was known for his personality. He was portrayed as a being that saw no difference in anyone or anything as he believed in equality. He was also known as a peaceful qualities and one that sided with the truth , in search for justice.
because he was the tenth guru and he also started the five K'S. Which were; kesh, kangha, kirpan, kachera and kara. hope this helps :)
The point here is not about the validity of a Gurudwara and the Adi Granth present at Hemkund Gurudwara, but the actual visit of Guru Gobind during his Gurgaddi. The facts remains, the Guru Gobind did not visit Hemkund at all during the Lifetime as our Guru. Past life ... One has their own bel…iefs and I am NOT going to agrue with anyone on the the subject. As a Sikh and a believer of Adi Guru Granth, I stand firm in stating that My guru Gobind Singh Ji did not visit Hemkund Gurudwara in his lifetime during his Gurgaddi. You want to visit Hemkund Gurudwara, by all means go and visit the Gurudwara at Hemkund. Lets just NOT confuse ourselves with the real fact. I stand corrected ... (MORE)
Ive heard 2 answers, some say he was a khatri like guru nanak,others say he was a gujar?
As was ordained by the Timeless, thus was established the Panth Meaning that with gods hukam he establised the Panth
Yes, Guru Sahib did TEMPORARILY, however as you must now that afterBhai Sahib Singh the last oof the 5 pyare; Guru Ji took a long timeto get out and that was the creation of the Khalsa and Panj Pyarecame back because Guru Ji would never lie; then Guru Ji put all ofthe 5 heads back
He didn't write it, he just compiled other people's (especially Guru Nanak Dev) teachings and hymns and stuff and put it in a book. He did this because he thought that Gurus could become corrupt and wouldn't lead the faith properly. The Guru Granth Sahib was supposed to be the Guru to end all Gurus…, in a way. It would mean that no other Gurus would be needed, ever. (MORE)
guru nanak = stayed at the golden temple after the buddah guru gobhind = was one of the 10 gurus that started the sikh religion ! hope this helps
they are not they are two different people. guru nanak dev ji is the first living of the Sikh teachers and guru gobind sing ji is the last of the living guru's
He told everyone that they were equal and that equality was the thing which most modern day people should follow. He also formed the Khalsa and those five people showed bravery and sacrifice those were two other teachings.
he is an inspiration to Sikhs because he started Sikhism and he was the only Sikh that believed in god !!:):):) xxx
Guru Gobind Singh ji died on 21 October, 1708 at Nanded, Maharashtra, India and passed the Guruship to Guru Granth Sahib ji.
Many things. 1) Creating Khalsa Panth - giving sikhs an identity by introducing a phase/passage way that a Sikh can chose to go through called "Amrit Shakna" It's similar to baptisms by Christians but the individual must decide themselves whether they want to do this or not. For this reason it's no…t performed on babies since they can make decisions themselves yet He also introduced the 5Ks that all Sikhs r encouraged to hold, but those who are Amritari (did the Amrit shakna) must hold. K- Kesh- Uncut hair K-Kirpan Small sword to stand up to injustice and protect those who need aid K-Karra A simple steel/iron bracelet to signify the universe and connection of all individuals. A circle has no beginning or end. God has no beginning or end. A circle is always connect. The universe is always connect. Non-precious metal so everyone can afford to to emphasis contentment in simplicity K-Kanga Comb to keep hair maintained and clean and to encourage proper hygiene K-Kashera - Simple clean loose undergarments to also encourage hygiene but also for modesty. Simple undergarments are not flashy and do not induce lust. 2) He took on Guruship at the age of 8 after his father was martyred by the Mugal Raj. He guided the Sikhs 3) Fought injustice politically and in war against Mugals. Especially in Anandpur Sahib where his family was trapped in a fort with many other Sikhs. They were tricked into leaving as the Emperor Aurangzeb swore on the Quran he would let walk out, but he instead attacked as they left and the Guruji managed to fight and allow many to escape along with himself, but many holy pages (never rewritten) and soldiers were lost. 4) After his 4 sons and mother died in battle he and his wife settled in southern india where he spread Sikhism and help many through guidance and langar. He was assassinated here. Here there is a gurdwara called Sri Hazoor Sahib. (MORE)
