Possible Contemporary Painting of Sri Guru Gobind Singh Sahib Ji?


Recommended Posts

Thing with most Indian paintings is they really don't give much of the facial features away, like in that painting everyone has pretty much got the same/similar face. But the description fits in with that i'v read about Guru Ji. Bhai Jaita/Jivan Singh describes Guru ji as being medium built, having a bright complexion which means fair skinned, Large eyes, and a sharp nose. Guru ji is depicted as the lightest one from all of them and of a medium built and with large big eyes in this painting as well, which matches the description given by Bhai Jivan Singh.

What about the Hazur Sahib painting? Its in one of the puratan Dasam Granths or Sarbloh Granths and the Singh showed us it and said its the original painting of Guru Sahib. The bog version you see hanging inside Hazur Sahib is a replica of the one of saw in one of the puratan birs shown to us.

Yeah, i'm not really sure. The artist obviously overdone some things, especially regarding the eyes. If this is Guru Sahib, they depict him fairly young as well with a short beard. There is also a common trend regarding hoop earrings in a lot of these puratan paintings, an obvious sign of royalty. This image supposedly takes place after the establishment of the Khalsa, however, it doesn't even look like any of the Singhs are there. Which is odd. Also displays a red dastar, and tilk. Then again, I could be wrong. Most of the guys at the bottom just look like Rajput warriors/royalty. 

 I have the Hazur Sahib painting hanging in my room. I personally believe that's an authentic depiction. Is there any more history regarding that image? I've been trying to find more info.

Could you please share an image of this painting?

Why are you getting so excited, lol?

They also sacrificed their entire immediate family, from parents to offspring. Shall we do the same, too?

yes I am excited the separatist mentality was finally an artificial construct invented by tat khalsa and singh sabha movements , and that sikh gurus were more "hindu" than the modern day sikhs would like to admit. Finally the RSS/hindutva brigade was right in trying to bring sikhs to their senses of who we really are , a branch and not a tree.

Gurus wore prominent tilaks as u can see in the pic , and  perhaps also wore janeu. Who invented the modern day paintings of guru gobind singh ji ? must be some khalistani

It's a lot to process. I'm feeling light-headed all of a sudden. Don't trigger me! ?

    • I saw the video on TikTok I think. It was at Wembley Stadium and I was unable to bookmark/favourite it because Tiktok decided to refresh. It was the "mainstream" Chaupai Sahib you will hear at a Singh Sabha gurdwaras, usually so-called Ramgarhia gurdwaras and also for the past 100 year or so in Harimandir Sahib under the current committee system.  In other words, the sikhs who give up or quit at ਖੜਗ ਕੇਤ ਮੈਂ ਸ਼ਰਨਿ ਤਿਹਾਰੀ ॥ ਆਪ ਹਾਥ ਦੈ ਲੇਹੁ ਉਬਾਰੀ ॥ Lord of the Almighty Sword, provides a shield for my protection. With Your Hands you have saved me.   ਸਰਬ ਠੌਰ ਮੋ ਹੋਹੁ ਸਹਾਈ ॥ ਦੁਸ਼ਟ ਦੋਖ ਤੇ ਲੇਹੁ ਬਚਾਈ ॥੪੦੧॥ You bestow help on me at all places and rescue me from pain and the designs of my demons.401. Kharag kait mai sarann tihaaree. Aap haath dai leho ubaaree. Sarab thor mo hoho sahaaee. Dustt dokh té leho bachaaee. (25) O The Lord of Sword, I seek Your protection. With Your Hands you have guarded me. At All Times be my Support. Save me from wickedness and pain. (25).
    • Bro, can you post from what line to what line they did paath of?
    • A decade later and I can show you all what the problem is. Both Khalsa Primary School and students from Pioneer Secondary Academy were invited for Vaisakhi celebrations, and they done a Chaupai Sahib paat. The problem is, they performed the politics ridden anti-dasam Bhasauria mutilated cut version of Benti Chaupai which is disrespectful to traditional puraatan samrpadaiye and mahapurakh. If bani politics is going to be used on children to skip lines from Dasam Pita ji dhan dhan Guru Gobind Singh ji's Benti Chaupai Sahib, that certain groups think it is ok to do, then @serious guptwas right to raise concerns a decade ago! IN 2024, when sangat is much more knowledgable about dasam bani and katha, when we have so many resources - then if we are not allowing our children to learn bani shud and let them choose their groups to follow later, then this raises RED FLAGS IN 2024!!!! AKAAAAL!
