Guru Gobind Singh

Devotees of Sikhism are ardent followers of Guru Gobind Singh and celebrate his Jayanti by indulging in pooja samagri online shopping for offering their reverence to the Guru. 

The annual celebration of Guru Gobind Jayanti falls on the 20th of January this year. He was born on 22nd December 1666 in Patna, Bihar. He was one of the pioneer leaders of the Sikh community and played a major role in spreading words of wisdom, love, and brotherhood among all people. On this auspicious day, followers of Sikhism offer divine gifts and their prayers to Guru Ji for a peaceful life. 

Guru Gobind Singh was not only a great spiritual leader but a courageous warrior of all times. Unknown to many, he fought fourteen wars against the Mughal empire, not for revenge or demolition of their clan. His only aim was to save all countrymen from being ill-treated or mishandled. The most pathetic period was when two of his sons died in battles, and the other two were executed by the Mughals. However, in spite of such grievous loss, he never failed to continue his fights and acts of kindness to others in need. 

1. All You Need to Know About Guru Gobind’s Khala Formation:-

  • The formation of Khalsa is one of the highlights of his life. The tradition first came into being in 1699 and followers believe that this is one of the key events in the history of Sikhism. The literal meaning of the word Khalsa symbolizes ‘ to be clear, pure, and free’. Guru Gobind Singh, the tenth guru started this tradition during the Islamic sharia rule when the beheading of his father took place on the instructions of Aurungzeb. From that time onward, he pledged to free and protect his countrymen from useless religious persecution. Thus, the Khalsa warrior community started by Guru Gobind Singh gave way to new beliefs and new traditions. While some Sikhs embraced all the codes laid down by the Guru, there were others who stayed away from him. 
  • The day is a commemoration of his divine teachings.  The Sikh community visits the Gurudwaras to offer prayers.  They also put flowers on Guru Gobind Singh’s photo frames.

2.The Mandatory Restrictions laid down by the Khalsa:-

  • A Khalsa should be honest, brave enough to put his life at risk while protecting others. Also, he should have kindness in him to help those in need. 
  • They should not disrupt natural hair growth and thus should stay away from cutting or trimming. 
  • Should only live with their spouse and no one else. 
  • The Khalsa should in no way consume alcohol or tobacco or drugs. 
  • Give up on eating the meat of any animal.
