Sobha Singh- Guru Nanak Dev ji - self portrait?

Recommended Posts

Came across this a few years back. Some believe that the really famous painting of Guru Nanak Dev ji, painted by Sobha Singh was actually a based on Sobha Singhs own face! or was at least the inspiration behind it.

If you look at it then there definitely are some similarities between Sobha Singhs self portrait and the portrait of Guru Nanak Dev ji. Especially the nose, moustache and lips area, the shape of the beard and how he painted Guru jis beard white but did his eyebrows black, just like his own!    Made me think twice about the Sobha Singh Guru Nanak portrait hanging in my living room!  I know it's just an artists imagination but it could really just be Sobha Singh staring back at us! 

I've personally never liked Sobha Singhs work, though his painting of SonhiMahiwal is quite beautiful.

Don’t look much alike to me

ive been told Sant Mohinder Singh Ji (Rara Sahib/Jarg) said Sobha Singh’s picture of 1st Guru was very good as it most resembles 1st Guru true likeness

I think it was bhai vir Singh hi or some other famous gursikh that sobha called to have a look at the painting and the gursikh was displeased and said “my guru Nanak dev ji doesn’t look like that”. 
 

We shouldn’t even have paintings of guru sahib anyway smh

    • Two wrongs together dont make a right. You will probably mislead her and make her rebel against her parents.
    • Just do EXACTLY as your parents say. When you grow up you will understand why they were right. if you dont listen to them now, you will likely spend your entire life regretting what u did.
    • Look at it this way - if we theoretically say yes one can take birth again as a Sikh, how will that affect their Simran now? Also if one takes birth again how will they remember that they are supposed to do Simran? What will stop them from asking this question again? http://sttm.co/s/48/524 ਭਈ ਪਰਾਪਤਿ ਮਾਨੁਖ ਦੇਹੁਰੀਆ ॥ bhiee paraapat maanukh dhehureeaa || This human body has been given to you. ਗੋਬਿੰਦ ਮਿਲਣ ਕੀ ਇਹ ਤੇਰੀ ਬਰੀਆ ॥ gobi(n)dh milan kee ieh teree bareeaa || This is your chance to meet the Lord of the Universe. ਅਵਰਿ ਕਾਜ ਤੇਰੈ ਕਿਤੈ ਨ ਕਾਮ ॥ avar kaaj terai kitai na kaam || Nothing else will work. ਮਿਲੁ ਸਾਧਸੰਗਤਿ ਭਜੁ ਕੇਵਲ ਨਾਮ ॥੧॥ mil saadhasa(n)gat bhaj keval naam ||1|| Join the Saadh Sangat, the Company of the Holy; vibrate and meditate on the Jewel of the Naam. ||1|| ਸਰੰਜਾਮਿ ਲਾਗੁ ਭਵਜਲ ਤਰਨ ਕੈ ॥ sara(n)jaam laag bhavajal taran kai || Make every effort to cross over this terrifying world-ocean. ਜਨਮੁ ਬ੍ਰਿਥਾ ਜਾਤ ਰੰਗਿ ਮਾਇਆ ਕੈ ॥੧॥ ਰਹਾਉ ॥ janam birathaa jaat ra(n)g maiaa kai ||1|| rahaau || You are squandering this life uselessly in the love of Maya. ||1||Pause|| ਜਪੁ ਤਪੁ ਸੰਜਮੁ ਧਰਮੁ ਨ ਕਮਾਇਆ ॥ jap tap sa(n)jam dharam na kamaiaa || I have not practiced meditation, self-discipline, self-restraint or righteous living. ਸੇਵਾ ਸਾਧ ਨ ਜਾਨਿਆ ਹਰਿ ਰਾਇਆ ॥ sevaa saadh na jaaniaa har raiaa || I have not served the Holy; I have not acknowledged the Lord, my King. ਕਹੁ ਨਾਨਕ ਹਮ ਨੀਚ ਕਰੰਮਾ ॥ kahu naanak ham neech kara(n)maa || Says Nanak, my actions are contemptible! ਸਰਣਿ ਪਰੇ ਕੀ ਰਾਖਹੁ ਸਰਮਾ ॥੨॥੪॥ saran pare kee raakhahu saramaa ||2||4|| O Lord, I seek Your Sanctuary; please, preserve my honor! ||2||4||
    • Bro, I don't know if I naam jap or not. .. honestly. How do I know if the name that I said with my tongue is being accepted in the dargah when my mind is wavering and is not steady. So I am scared.  Another thing I was thinking.  The population of the Humans in the world is 7.8 Billion.  Where as the population of all animals - mammals, reptiles, insects, bacteria, virus and all ocean life and other creatures far exceeds than the 7.8 billion number On top of that add all the other rooms in pret, hellish forms.  Getting a Human Life seems winning a lottery and on top of that human birth in a good family, plus human birth in a Sikh family seems near impossible? I want to know what happens to a person who is born a Sikh and dies and did not do Naam Jap? are they given Sikh birth again or have they lost?
