The Ten Gurus & Sri Guru Granth Sahib Jee

Sri Guru Gobind Singh Sahib Jee

Sri Guru Gobind Singh JiGobind Rai spent the first five years of his life in Patna. As a child he used to play war games with other children leading mock battles. He had many admirers including a learned Brahmin called Pandit Shiv Dutt (or Shiv Das). Once Raja Fateh Chand of Patna and his Rani a childless couple visited Shiv Dutt and asked him to bless them with a child. Shiv Dutt suggested that if an innocent child like Gobind Rai prayed to God their desire would be fulfilled. The couple then asked young Gobind Rai to visit their palace where the Rani asked Gobind Rai to pray to God to bless her with a son like him. Gobind Rai smiled and said that there can be nobody like him so the Rani should call him her son. From that day the Rani started calling him Bala Pritam ("child God"). The royal couple allowed Gobind Rai and his friends to freely play in their palace and also built a big dining hall for the children.
