Guru Gobind Singh Prakash UtsavToday is very auspicious. On this day in 1666, Guru Gobind Singh, the tenth Guru of Sikhism, was born at Patna. He was the son of Guru Tegh Bahadur. The great Guru founded Khalsa at Anandpur Sahib in 1699 on the occasion of Baisakhi. Khalsa was founded to fight against the injustice, the evil.
Guru Gobind Singh lost his sons in the battles against Mughals. He and his followers suffered a lot, but he never left the path of truth and courage. He never surrendered before the evil force. Ultimately his way prevailed.
On this auspicious day, let us remember what the Guru said: "I came into the world charged with the duty to uphold the right in every place, to destroy sin and evil... the only reason I took birth was to see that righteousness may flourish, that good may live, and tyrants be torn out by their roots.''
On this auspicious day, let us say: ''Waheguru da Khalsa, Waheguru di Fateh" (Waheguru's beloved Khalsa, Victory to Waheguru).
