Wishing all Guru Gobind Singh Jayanti!

Born on December 22, 1666, in Patna, Bihar, India, Guru Gobind Singh was the son of Guru Tegh Bahadur, the ninth guru of the Sikhs, and was just nine years old when his father was martyred by the Mughal Emperor Aurangzeb for refusing to convert to Islam. Despite this tragedy, Guru Gobind Singh went on to become a strong and influential leader in the Sikh community.

He worked to defend the rights of the oppressed and is best known for forming the Khalsa, a community of initiated Sikhs. Guru Gobind Singh also made important contributions to the Sikh scriptures, including the addition of the Dasam Granth, a collection of his own writings.
