Sources For Some Of The Words From Guru Gobind Singh Jis Mouth

Recommended Posts

Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh everybody,

There are a few teachings that I have heard people attribute to Guru Gobind Singh Ji but since I am not too learned in this area I don't know what the source of these teachings are. Here are the two that immediately sprint to mind.

1. Guru ji put applied oil to his arm and put his arm in a container full of mustard seeds. He pulled his arm out and said that if a Turk says "kasam" as many times as there are mustard seeds on his arm that we still should not believe him.

2. One day, after a battle against the Turks in which the Singhs won, a Singh said to Guru ji, "When we were weak these Turks took away our women, now we are strong and have won the battle we should take away their women". To this Guru Gobind Singh ji replied "Do not even think about it, if we did this what would the difference be between us and them"?

Does anyone have any more details about these two incidents and where the details about them are recorded?

(The Mughal emperor), after a long deliberation, summoned,

Himmat Khan, The (Pathan) chief of Kasoor

He was directed to eliminate Banda in any manner

Even if he had to swear on the Koran, a million times

The emperor Farrukhsiar briefed him so thoroughly,

He must eliminate Banda through any means, fair or foul,

(The emperor) stressed upon the need to do away with Banda repeatedly,

Even if he had to swear a thousand times upon the Koran [hazaar = thousand]

The emperor asked him to imagine the dipping of one’s arm in oil.

And the number of sesame seeds [tilh] that could stick around the oil smeared arm.

If one could succeed in killing a Sikh,

One should not feel guilty of swearing this many times.

(Pracheen Panth Prakash, Ratan Singh Bhangu page 361)
