Saadh Sangat Ji,
Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa, Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh!!
Please join us in celebrating janam diwas of Baba Deep Singh Ji on this Sunday 29-Jan-2017 at Gurudwara Sahib.
Baba Deep Singh (1682–1757) is revered among Sikhs as one of the most honored martyrs in Sikhism and as a highly religious person. He is remembered for his sacrifice and devotion to the teachings of the Sikh Gurus. Baba Deep Singh was the first head of Misl Shaheedan Tarna Dal – an order of the Khalsa military established by Nawab Kapur Singh, the then head of Sharomani Panth Akali Buddha Dal.
In 1757, he led an army to defend the Golden Temple from Afghans. On being mortally wounded with a severe gash to his head, a Sikh reminded Baba Deep Singh, “You had resolved to reach the periphery of the pool.” On hearing the talk of the Sikh, he supported his head with his left hand and removing the enemies from his way with the strokes of his double-edged sword with his right hand, reached the periphery of Harmandir Sahib where he breathed his last.
Baba Deep Singh’s 40 kg Khanda (double-edged sword), which he used in his final battle, is still preserved at Akaal Takhat Sahib.
NOTE: There is ample amount of free parking on Sunday in DC next to Gurdwara Sahib and also there is parking lot in basement.
