Shahidi Dihada of Guru Teg Bahadur Ji : Nov 20 – Nov22, 2015

Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa, Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh!!

Please join us in commemorating the Shaheedi Dihada of Guru Tegh Bahadur ji. Guru Tegh Bahadur Ji (ninth Guru in Sikh Religion) set a remarkable precedent of martyrdom for the cause of freedom of religion (of any human being, irrespective of their faith), when he was publicly executed (beheaded) in 1675 on the orders of Mughal Emperor Aurangzeb in Delhi for resisting the forced conversions of Hindus in Kashmir to Islam, and after himself refusing to convert to Islam. For this sacrifice, Guru Tegh Bahdaur is also known as Hind-di-Chaadar (shield of India.)

NOTE: It was proposed by Guru Teg Bahadur Ji that if Aurangzeb can convert him into Islam, then all other Hindus would be converted but he made sure that doesn’t happen by sacrificing his life to save their religion.

Gurudwara Sis Ganj Sahib and Gurdwara Rakab Ganj Sahib in Delhi mark the places of execution and cremation of the Guru’s body.

Akhand Paath will commence on Friday Nov. 20 evening with Samapti on Sunday Nov. 22 morning. This will be followed by the regular Sunday Diwan. We look forward to your visit along with friends and family.

Aval Aleh Noor Upaya Koodrath Kay Sabh Bundhay ||

     ਏਕ ਨੂਰ ਤੇ ਸਭੁ ਜਗੁ ਉਪਜਿਆ ਕਉਨ ਭਲੇ ਕੋ ਮੰਦੇ ॥੧॥

Ek Noor Te Sabh Jug Oopajia Kaun Bhalay Ko Mundhay ||1||

          

   God created light of which all the beings were born

    And from this one light, the entire universe welled up; 

     so who is good and who is bad. 

 

   ਮਾਟੀ ਏਕ ਅਨੇਕ ਭਾਂਤਿ ਕਰਿ ਸਾਜੀ ਸਾਜਨਹਾਰੈ ॥

Maatee Ek Anaek Bhanth Kar Sajee Sajaneharai ||
