Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji Academy is with Komal Kamboj.

TODAY (23 November 2017), Maghar Sudi 5, 1732 Bikarmi (corresponding to 19th September 1675AD) is a significant day for not only the Sikhs but all Indians when the True Sovereign, Benevolent, Master of the Universe, Sri Guru Tegh Bahadur Sahib Ji gave his mortal body for the freedom to practice religion. He was a pioneer in the long battle to have the liberty to practice our believes as our natural human right.
Before the martyrdom of Guru Ji, ignorant Aurangzeb questioned the capability of Guru Ji by saying, “If he is so strong in His religion then why has He kept his name Tegh Bahadur? What is the meaning of it? The Hindus consider him as their Guru and pray to Him but He has not shown any bravery at all, so how can we call Him brave? Go and ask Him the meaning of His name, otherwise He will be punished severely.”
The messenger went to Guru Ji and said, “Can you please explain the meaning of your name. Why have you kept this name? The emperor is furious and he wants you to explain the meaning of your name.”
Guru Ji replied very calmly, “The name and body of a person is his identity. Now please listen to the reason why I have been given this name. Tell the king to first find the most sharp-edged steel sword that he can get, wrap it with a piece of paper and tie a thin thread around it. Then ask him to look for the bravest warrior that he can find, who is trained to use weapons. Instruct him to strike my neck with that sword. He will not be able to cut even the paper that is wrapped on the sword. That is the power of my name. If you don’t believe in my words then you can test and find out yourself.”
The words of the True Guru obviously came true and the executioner on the fateful day at noon under a Pipal tree at the busy roundabout Chandni Chowk overlooking the Red Fort, was unable to decapitate Guru Ji’s head. After completing Japji Sahib and before the executioner could slash his sword, Guru Ji in his own wisdom placed his head in the laps of Bhai Jaita Ji. A severe sand storm brewed all over Delhi right after the martyrdom.
Only of the age of 53 years, 7 months & 15 days, his contributions to the Sikh world are aplenty with combination of any word will be insufficient to describe our Master, Guru Tegh Bahadur Sahib Ji.
Guru Ji’s contribution in narrating Gurbani is immense. Guru Ji composed 115 Shabads (hymns) in 15 different Rags in the span of 10 years, 7 months & 9 days (His Guruship duration). Raag Jaijaiwanti in Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji is exclusively with the Gurbani of Guru Tegh Bahadur Ji. Majority of Guru Ji’s compositions is filled with so much of renunciation all worldly matters and attachments. Guru Ji’s makes its reader develop the lovelorn yearning of Almighty.
Wherever we are today lets take some time to read on the celebrated life of Guru Tegh Bahadur Sahib Ji.

Bhai Nand Lal writes on Guru Ji in his Ganjnama;
ਗੁਰੂ ਤੇਗ ਬਹਾਦੁਰ ਆਂ ਸਰਾਪਾ ਅਫ਼ਜ਼ਾਲ
ਜ਼ੀਨਤ ਆਰਾਇ ਮਹਿਫਲਿ ਜਾਹੋ ਜਲਾਲ॥੯੯॥
Sri Guru Tegh Bahadur was the storehouse of elevated moralities and virtues; he was instrumental to enhance the gaiety and pomp and show of the divine parties. (99)

Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji Academy is with Komal Kamboj.

Let us all today dedicate this day to our great Shaheeds who were brutally tortured to their last breath in three consecutive days from Maghar Sudhi 2nd to 4th, 1732 (Bikermi) equivalent 16th to 18th December 1675 A.D. The world stands as witness that the worst physical cruelty failed to derail them from their determination and instead motivated their courage to endure the pains to maintain the freedom of faith which all of us are enjoying today.
Guru Tegh Bahadur Sahib Ji was accompanied by five (5) Sikhs to Delhi after His arrest in Saifabad (now known as Patiala). Gurpertap Suraj Granth stated that the five Sikhs were namely Bhai Mati Das, Bhai Dayala Das, Bhai Gurdita Ji, Bhai Udho & Bhai Sahib Chand. In Bhat Vehi Telonda Pragna - Bhai Sati Das is stated in lieu of Bhai Sahib Chand
a. Bhai Mati Das Ji
Bhai Mati Das Ji who accompanied Sri Guru Tegh Bahadur Ji to Delhi refused to betray His faith was then ordered by Aurangzeb to be placed between two planks of wood and to be sawed alive from head downwards.
Bhai Mati Das Ji, in his high spirits without an iota of fear started reciting Jap Ji Sahib as soon as the large saw held by two executioner was placed on the centre of his head. The saw pierce through his skull, stream of blood started flowing with pieces of his flesh.
It was only the 16th Pauri of Jap Ji Sahib when the entire body was cut half with the saw and Bhai Ji’s body fell to the ground. Bhai Mati Das Ji was reciting Japji Sahib when his execution was being performed. When Bhai Ji’s body was cut into half, both halves of his body were still reciting Jap Ji Sahib. People watching the execution were surprised and they were saying among themselves, “How can a person in this condition still continue reciting Jap Ji Sahib.”
After Jap Ji Sahib was concluded, Bhai Mati Das Ji departed to Sachkhand. Bhai Mati Das Ji attained the supreme level of spirituality.
b. Bhai Dyala Ji
Bhai Dayala Das was a prominent Sikh and he was the brother of Shaheed Bhai Mani Singh. Guru Tegh Bahadur Ji Himself addressed him as ‘Bhai Ji” in many of His Hukamnamas. In one of the Hukamnama, Guru Ji even wrote ‘Bhai Dayala’s words are My words’ in one of His Hukamnama.
When Bhai Mati Das Ji’s brutal torture failed to terrify Guru Teg Bahadur Ji, Bhai Dayala Ji was sentenced to be boiled alive. Upon listening to the verdict Bhai Dayala Ji said ‘I accept the verdict to be honoured with martyrdom.’
Bhai Dayala was then bounded with iron shackles and was made to march to Kotwali (police-station) near the Sunehri Masjid in Chandni Chowk area of Old Delhi, same place where Bhai Mati Das attained his martyrdom. The Kazi offered to set him free and a luxurious life if he would accept their faith, or a torturous death in the event of refusal. Under the orders of the Kazi, a big cauldron (a very big vessel) was brought. Bhai Dayala stood with folded hands and did an Ardaas (Humble prayer of a servant) before the Guru and said ‘Dear Guru Arjan Dev Ji, once you have endured the boiling water in Chandu’s cauldron, now please be with your humble Sikh to endure the boiling water in Aurangzeb’s cauldron’. Bhai Dayala was made to sit in this vessel. Water was put into the vessel and fire was lit under the vessel. While Bhai Dayala started reciting Sri Sukhmani Sahib the water started boiling in the cauldrum.
Blisters appeared on the entire body of Bhai Dayala and the spectators were terrified by the most inhuman scene. But Bhai Ji had before his eyes the model of martyrdom of Guru Arjan Dev Ji, who was brutally tortured under the orders of Emperor Jahangir in a similar but much worse manner.
Under the watchful eyes of thousands of spectators many of who were sobbing and graceful eyes of his Guru, Bhai Dayala Ji completed the second Astpadi of Sukhmani Sahib and the body was boiled but the recitation of Gurbani continued till its completion which was heard aloud from Bhai Dayala’s body.
c. Bhai Sati Dass
Bhai Sati Das was a writer of a high calibre, he used to script Guru Tegh Bahadur’s words in Persian language and later record the same in Gurmukhi with Bhai Mani Singh’s assistance. He was the younger brother of Bhai Mati Das.
Bhai Sati Das was brought out in the open at the same place where Bhai Mati Das and Bhai Dayala was martyred, with hands and legs bounded with iron shackles. As a true Sikh, he refused all the offers in return of his faith and accepted to be burnt alive. Bhai Sati Das Ji’s last wish was to have the glimpse of his Master, Sri Guru Tegh Bahadur Sahib Ji. He started reciting Mool Mantar and the executioners wrapped him in raw cotton before setting it afire . Bhai Sati Das Ji’s body was burning in immense fire while he was standing still in the love of his Guru. He continued reciting Mool Mantar without an iota of pain under the watchful eyes of his Guru and thousands of spectators. Hari Ram Gupta writes in his ‘Guru Tegh Bahadur-A Biographical Study’ – Sati Das condemned these brutalities. He was hacked to pieces’ limb by limb.
Sri Guru Tegh Bahadur Sahib, sitting in the cage showered his blessings on his three Sikhs who had faced brutal executions with unflinching faith and courage. He was immensely pleased with the steadfastness shown by these three Sikhs which was sure to inspire many more Sikhs to emulate the examples of these brave Sikh martyrs.
