About (Profile/Biography)

Gobind Rai or Gobind Das, well-known as Guru Gobind Singh, was the tenth Sikh Guru, a divine master, warrior, poet, and philosopher. When his father, Guru Tegh Bahadur, was implemented by Aurangzeb, Guru Gobind Singh was formally assembled as the Sikhs' leader at the age of nine and became the tenth and last human Sikh Guru. His four biological sons did die throughout his lifetime, two in battle and two by the Mughal governor Wazir Khan. Among his outstanding contribution to Sikhism are the creation of the Sikh warrior community known as Khalsa in 1699 and the introduction of the Five Ks, the five articles of faith that Khalsa Sikhs wear constantly.

In 1684: Gobind Singh authored the Chandi di Var in Punjabi, a legendary battle between good and evil, in which the good stand up to unfairness and tyranny, as defined in the ancient Sanskrit text Markandeya Purana.

In 1688: The Battle of Bhangani, described in Chapter 8 of Gobind Singh's Bicitra Natak, occurred when Fateh Shah, accompanied by mercenary commanders Hayat Khan and Najabat Khan, threatened his forces without reason.
