Guru Gobind Singh Ji's early childhood

Bhikhan Shah or Bhikh Shah was a well revered Muslim Mystic fakir from nagar Siana. He was absorbed in deep meditation when He became aware of the incarnation of Guru Gobind Singh Ji at Patna Sahib.Bhikhan Shah today bowed towards the direction of Patna Sahib instead of Mecca.This act was considered by his followers to be contrary to the way of Islam but nevertheless Bhikhan Shah remained steadfast in his beliefs that the Son of God had today taken physical birth at Patna Sahib today.Bhikhan Shahwas born in 1637 at village Siana in Kainthal district Karnal but chose to reside at Thuska. Hr received Thuska as a jagir from the Mughals.

Bhikhan Shah being a Sayyd Mir was also known by the title of Thuskha Mir Ji. Bhikhan Shah's mother Shah Mira Bhikha was from Sadaura.Rosn Oud Daula had given to Bhikhan Shah 24 villages.Bhikhan Shah at once left for the city of Patna to take a glimpse of the child Guru. Pir ji was anxious to find out ofwhich , Islam and Hinduism Guru Ji favoured.. Pir Ji placed before the child Guru three earthen pots filled with water, milk and indian sweets respectively.The water symbolised Islam,;milk symbolised Hinduism and the sweets righteousness. Islam was entangled in narrow mindeedness and strict religious laws, hence the water.Water is only of use when enclosed in a container.Hinduism lay stress on pure actions hence the milk.

When Bhikhan Shah arrived in Patna, He took a glimpse of the child Guru and placed before the child Guru two earthen vessels containing indian sweets. Bhikhan Shah subsequently placed before the child guru , the earthen pots containing water and milk.Guru Ji knocked both of them empty with his gentle feet. Everyone looked dumbfounded and Bhikhan Shah stepped forward and issed Guru Ji's feet. Bhikhqan Shah became convinced that Guru Ji did not favour either Hinduism or Islam but instead defended righteousness.

Guru Gobind Singh Ji explains in one of his compositions taken from his writings Akal Ustat or Utterings of Praise of the Almighty that the temple and mosque are the same.

The Child guru would visit the River Ganges and bless it with his feet. Guru Ji would playfully empty out the pitchers of those taking bath in the River Ganges.Guru Ji stressed that the water of the ganges was of no use for the cleansing of the soul. Guru Ji further explained that superstitions and rituals had taken man very far away from true religion.Guru Ji offered a coin given to him by his mother to the water.

A blessed soul with the name of Shiv Dutt saw in the guru the very image of the Hindu Avatar Sri Ram Chander Ji. The people of patna were very convinced that the child Guru was an incarnation of the Hindu avatar Sri Ram Chander and that the child guru was responsible for the death of the evil king Ravan.

Wherever the child Guru stood in the river, The River Ganges would rise up and touch the feet of Guru Gobind Singh Ji. Guru Ji would organise mock battles between the children. Those victorious were awarded prizes by the Guru's mother and maternal uncle. Small arrows, swords and shields were prepared specially

    • Everything in Gurbani points us towards the Atma. Atma and Parmatma are the same… Atama and Parmatma is the source that creates and causes everything… What have the following items got in common? A fan. A television. A fridge. A radio. A computer..? These things are powered by electricity. Without electricity these things are lifeless. It’s the electricity that causes these things to function… Atma is the source of energy that allows everything to happen.    without Atma, we are lifeless… Call this Atama RAGUNATH…call this Atma by any other name…the fact remains that it’s the life force energy… Dieties also have the same Atma as humans, but they still part of the creation, and not the creator…  
    • Hi I want to know who’s ragunath in gurbani Hindu claim this word appear for ram chandra if we read guru teg bahadur maharaj salok maharaj clearly rejecting ram gayo ravan geo but at the last pangti Kahu naanak īh bipaṭi mai tek ēyk ragɦunaaṭɦ ॥55॥ Says Nanak, in this calamity, the Lord alone is my support who is this ragunaath why would maharaj use ragunath as refrence for god?
    • Throughout history we have been tested and tried. We remained steadfast and resiliant. The events that took place in Punjab and outside of Punjab in the past years made it quite clear we are big players in the game which kept the world powers on edge. It started off with the drug pandemic in Punjab, to the uproar by Bhai Amritpal Singh to the Farmer's protest. Outside of Punjab the deaths of Avtar Singh Khanda (UK) and Hardeep Singh Nijjar (Canada) created a stir within our community. This was probably our first real opportunity to establish something but how quickly members of our own community forget history. We have been a threat to civilization in the past and this is probably what the world powers are concerned about. However, may we continue grow and learn through Gurbani and like Jaswant Singh Khalra said: 'May the spirit of equal rights Punjab continue to kindle'. 
    • This is why people used to get married earlier in puratan times. Think about it, nowadays you legit have to be brahmacharya at ages when you're supposed to be married and producing children, which historically speaking, is unprecedented outside of the Sants in Indic tradition.
