There are obviously stories behind them, to be honest, I learnt most of my stuff in religious studies classes and not really from my parents who are Sikh.

The main reasons behind the deaths of sikh Gurus, is, abve all to set an example for us humans, that they while being Akal Purukh Himself, abide by the Laws of Nature, unlike us humans, who if get any little power we start manipultaing and become corrupt.

And then the second reason, is that, the causes of their deaths are just excuses to leave, for once again, they abide by His Hukum in doing anything.

They came for a certain period of time, for  a certain purpose, of igniting the prem and sharda in the hearts of us humans, for His Lotus Feet, and to remind us, that only His Name, is permanent and eternal Sach, to which we should attach ourselves, for all else is:  futile, inert, temporary  and perishable.

Sat Sree Akal.

Brother,

I do not know what do you  exactly mean by a natural death, but that much I can tell you, we may not forget what exactly Guru Sahiban means, they arte the very embodiment of Wahiguru Akal Purukh, what to say about messengers or Kal,  or call it Dharam Rai, all of them are nothing but faithful servants of Guru Sahiban, for nothing can be done without Their Hukum.

Guru Sahiban, are the masters of life and death; and unlike us, they are beyond the reach of these cycles, everything happens within Their will and consentment, but as said above, They, are all humility, while being the Highest, they respect and work within the very laws of Nature, established by Akal Purukh.

Different thing is, we limited humans fail to recognize what they really are: Wahiguru.

Thus we judge or analyze them, with our limited and corrupted intellect.

To the OP, I would just say, just keep in mind who Guru Sahiban really are, and then ask yourself if anything can happen without their knowledge or permission.

For then it is irrelevant, how they left this plane, for that was under Their will, howsoever it may seem us  to be unogical.

Of course to us sikhs, all swaroops of Guru Sahiban are utmost dear and lovely, it pains us, if any discomfort happens on them, but brother, that also is by Their will or Hukum.

Stay blessed.

Sat Sree Akal.

I don't want to seem like namdhari but I still can't believe the death of Guru Gobind on faith alone.   We know he pulled theatrics when he created the khalsa, could he have done so too after he was stabbed?  It was reported that when he was to be burned his horse was gone and all that was left in the funeral pyre was the kara and kirpan, no golden arrow heads, no chakra, no salai, no rings, no ornament a man like him would have in his paaj, etc etc.   Yes his body was wounded gravely and he would die soon, but did he go to the pyre or go and die in tranquility away from the turmoil?

He had been mortally wounded , stitched up by a foreign surgeon , then those stitches opened up again when he did matha tek when passed Guru di Gaddi to Guru Granth Sahib ji

  We know he pulled theatrics when he created the khalsa, could he have done so too after he was stabbed? 

Watch what you say in ignorance ! there were no theatrics at vaisakhi there was no tambu, bakre or other bakwas that the faithless claim. The eye witness account by mughal spy indicates that much , that the heads were taken in full sight which lead to cowardly people to be full of fear and abandon sangat.
Guru ji said his farewells to sangat giving them instructions to not fixate on his cremation place but put faith in Guru Granth Sahib ji then sat on his pyre and let go of his body .

 

It was reported that when he was to be burned his horse was gone and all that was left in the funeral pyre was the kara and kirpan, no golden arrow heads, no chakra, no salai, no rings, no ornament a man like him would have in his paaj, etc etc.   Yes his body was wounded gravely and he would die soon, but did he go to the pyre or go and die in tranquility away from the turmoil?

1. all his horses have given progeny which are still looked after by Nihang jatha at Hazoor Sahib so no BS running away and hiding that Namdhari claim wrongly

2. Guru ji was wearing his kakkars no doubt , as for arrows he would use them in battle, he had given 5 arrows to Banda Singh Bahadur prior to death I doubt he would have worn his quiver as I have seen the arrows being shown to sangat on video . Why does it matter if he wore rings etc , and salai is a modern thing

Thank you for this.  I'm not trying to blaspheme or be ignorant, but there are a small handful of things I don't understand because I lack facts.  In contrast, I found in Christianity there are dozens of stories/theories that were taken and twisted from Babylonia (2000BC) and Zhorastrians (600 BC) which answered a lot of questions I had about that faith.

Was Sant Baba Deep a young man during the event where Guru Gobind Singh left his earthly body?  Do you know if he had anything to say?

Yes Baba Deep Singh was born in 1682. He was Baptised By Guru Gobind Singh ji himself at vaisakhi in 1699... Baba Deep Singh spent two years in Anandpur before leaving in 1702... In those two years he remained close to Guru Sahib, learned Sikh Martial Arts, Horse Riding, Gurbani interpretation from Bhai Mani Singh... He was again summoned by Guru Sahib to Make Copies of SGGS.... SO yeah he was very active when Guru Gobind Singh left the world.

    • I watch nearly all Punjabi movie releases.  Recently I watched ‘Chall Mera Putt’.  It’s a good comedy about the struggles of ‘Fauji’s’ in England.  It also has a message of better community cohesion with PakistanI Punjabi’s, who are also acting alongside our people.  Seems like since the opening of ‘Kartarpur Langa’, a major effort is being made on both sides of Punjab to embrace each other’s similarities. Punjabi film industry seems to be growing, but there seems to be too many releases flooding the market, with the same copy and paste storylines and repetitive use of the same actors.  Also I don’t know why but all the main lead actors are music artists and rarely does any new grassroot talent get a chance to showcase their talent.  You do get the odd gem like Ardaas and the Black Prince which breaks through but you have too sift through the pile of crap to find them. Gippy Grewal is showing he has a really good skill set as a Director, but he needs to take his time in selecting the right script rather than cashing out for quick releases.    
    • Another important thing re: the reception you might get from certain sections of the community/in Gurdwaras: I'm from a Panjabi background and grew up single parent in a time when it really was considered....I don't know what the word I should use here is?  In anycase, I fully understand why this (the single parent thing) is something a lot of the community were/are hawkish about. I understand why this is considered seriously undesirable. But be that as it may, (from my perspective) you don't really have much choice about these things, you just find yourself in them. Hukam. (For the record, believe it or not, this way of growing up can have some positives and benefits especially in terms of developing resilience in life and self-reliance). All this has probably made me mentally stronger and more streetwise than I would have been otherwise.  Growing up, there were times when the reception I got from some of the sangat at the Gurdwara wasn't exactly friendly. There was a time when I was younger when I might of felt alienated enough to stay away for a bit, although I was continually trying to develop my understanding through reading throughout this (youtube weren't around then). Now I don't know what experiences converts will have, I imagine they may get mixed ones. But the point I'm trying to make is that (for me) some degree of separation between people and Sikhi took place - and I believe for the better. Or else I could've let the negative experiences push me away from Sikhi (like I have seen happen to many, including in my own family), and I believe my life would have been infinitely poorer for this.  This is no excuse for appalling behaviour by apnay by the way. Which is very concerning for some of us, because of the effect it has on cohesion. We can clearly see examples of the negative effects of inexcusable exclusionary attitudes in the villages of Panjab today.  Just a heads up.   This path was sealed by divinity in the form of a saint-soldier. By it's own admission it is "finer than a hair, sharper than the edge of double-edged sword" so if you go through any tough stages - take them with your chin up. 
    • It's the more recent oppressor so the one before that gets a pass. When India gets taken over by the aliens from Alpha Centauri I am sure the Brits will be looked at more fondly. 
    • Weird how it's the "firangi" conquest that comes in for the most hostile criticism despite them doling out infrastructure and administrative benefits (albeit for vested interests) alongside the undeniable oppression, whereas the earlier Mughal one is almost romanticised by certain quarters to a certain extent. 
    • I used to lurk on some indian nationalist websites and they have some interesting insights.  The middle class liberal leaning Indian in their view is an anglofile McCaulyite. McCauley was a British educator that introduced a lot of the British education system to India in the 1800's. A lot of conditioning was done during this time.  What these nationalists say is that the people that latched onto the British education system who were anglicised were previously dhimmified in the previous mughal administration.  Dhimmi of course in Islamic circles means that you were a 2nd class citizen but they sucked up to the muslim elites.  When the power transitioned between Mughals and Brits, they just switched allegiance.  That is why perhaps the looked at the Mughals favourably.
