The Ten Gurus & Sri Guru Granth Sahib Jee

Sri Guru Hargobind Sahib Jee

Sri Guru Hargobind Sahib JiSri Guru Har Gobind was combined in his personality a saint sportsman and a soldier. His father Sri Guru Arjan Dev was a true saint but the boy Har Gobind had perceived his father's saintliness suffer and erode at the brutal hands of Mughal tyranny. When yet a little more than a child Guru Har Gobind was convinced that for sustaining the Panth sword was as essential as sainthood. He hence advocated that a Sikh Guru would represent both the Miri and Piri the Shakti and Bhakti and the Tegh and Degh. He decided to wear on his waist two swords instead of one that is one to chastise the oppressor and the other to protect the innocent." He declared that the Guru's house would henceforth combine the spiritual and the mundane powers his rosary would serve also as his sword-belt and an emblem of regality would crown his turban. He would sit in a regular court with regalia around. Sikhs were commanded to keep a sword and maintain a horse. The aureole of Guru Nanak's Sikhism and the humming melodies of his sangats had with Guru Har Gobind combined with them the dazzling brilliance and the deafening sound of swords.
