Guru Gobind was manifested as the tenth avatar. He repeated the name of the Creator (Akaal Purakh) who is unseen and stainless. There is none so great a destroyer of fear as the true Guru Gobind…
He handled and displayed such a sword as none could withstand.
Well done ! well done Gobind Singh ! thou wert at once Guru and disciple !

GURU GOBIND was born to Guru Tegh Bahadur and Mata Gujri on Dec 26, 1666, at Sri Patna Sahib in Bihar. Sri and Sahib are reverential appellations indicative of the deference with which the Sikhs hold their holy places. Gobind Rai, as he was called, spent his first five years in Patna. He was active, bold & fearless. He was less than nine years of age, when he took over the duties of Guruship. He wrote freely and copiously poetry in Hindi, Braj, Sanskrit Persian and Panjabi. He was a great scholar and warrior alike, received training in arms and inspired his followers to take up martial activities. Therefore prominently known as Saint-Soldier
During the life-times of the Sikh Gurus would clearly show how Sikhism was brought on the map of religions as a separate and distinct religion. Guru ji brought a revolutionary change in the society and transformed it into a nation of the valiant by the initiation of Amrit and by discarding the caste system in toto, thus creating a Casteless, Homogeneous, Socialistic and Secular Society.
His novel idea of baptizing Sikhs intoKhalsa organised them into a nation and organised them into powerful soldiers. They start keeping kirpans or swords & promised to be ready at all times to defend the religion and helpless people He ordered that all men must take the name of Singh (means lion) and all women Kaur (means Princess). In general the people who share the same name are part of the same family, therefore all Sikhs are part of the family of Sikhism.
Sikhs have fought to keep their faith and to be true to the teachings of the Gurus through long years of he history. When the stories from past are heard, it make us all proud to be Sikhs and it gives an opportunity to resolve to be the kind of people and human race who are worthy of the example given by the Gurus ‘The puran Gursikh’.
