    The difference of That is yours and this is mine had disappeared from his mind. The Pir could see everything belongs to one God, when he left for Sidhaura. After the first meeting it became routine for Pir Budhu Shah to visit the Guru. He no more needed a planquin to visit the Guru. He came to realise that the Guru's fight was not for any kingdom but against the tyranny which was being perpetrated against the poor people.

    Religion was being used as an excuse to commit tyranny. He got five hundred Pathans Natives of Afghanistan who had been dismissed from Aurangzeb's army for being Shi'ah Muslim, enrolled with the Guru. Before starting the War ofBhangani', the hill states' rajas tempted and enticed four hundred of these five hundred Pathans to join them. When Pir Budhu Shah came to know this disloyalty of the Pathans, he came to the Guru's aid with his seven hundred followers, four sons and two brothers.

    Fierce battle was fought at Bhangani. Two of his sons attained martyrdom in the battle. The army of the hill rajas suffered heavy casualties in the war and their forces were routed. After the war was over, the Pir came to take leave from the Guru to go back to Sidhaura. The Guru asked the Pir, You have rendered great help to me in this war. You may ask if you have any special wish. Your wish will be fulfilled from the House of Nanak.

    At the time, the Guru was combing his hair. The Pir said to the Guru, If you are so pleased with my services, be kind enough to grant me this comb with your hair entangled in it. The Guru gave the comb with the hair to Pir Budhu Shah. Later on Maharaja Bharpur Singh of Nabha state obtained that comb and hair from the descendants of the Pir after paying the sum asked by them. Usman Khan arrested the Pir.

    To punish the Pir for helping the Guru he was martyred by burying alive. He came to Anandpur for the first time to have an audience with Guru Tegh Bahadur. He was delighted by the audience. To feel that bliss all the time he stayed on in the Guru's institution. He was entrusted the service of fetching water for the community kitchen.

    Before the start of the Battle of Bhangani, Guru Gobind Rai bestowed upon him the duty of serving water to the needy in the battlefield. On the 15th April , the hill states, rajas, weaning away four hundred Pathans Natives of Afghanistan , attacked the Sikhs.

    In the battlefield whosoever was thirsty came to Bhai Kanahiya. He served them water. Hindus, Muslims, Sikhs and Pathans were given a drink of water by him. Thus refreshed, they again took to fighting. When the Sikhs saw Bhai Kanahiya serving water to their enemy, they were annoyed. The Sikhs thought, If Bhai Kanahiya does not serve water to the wounded soldiers of the enemy, they will surely die of thirst.

    The Sikhs went to the Guru and complained about it. After narrating the whole story they beseeched that Bhai Kanahiya be prevented from serving water to the enemy. The Guru called Bhai Kanahiya and asked him, Brother, is it true that you are serving water to the enemy soldiers who are thirsty and wounded by the Sikhs, thus refreshing them to fight against them again? Bhai Kanahiya replied, O' True lord, I do not see any enemy.

    I behold you everywhere. Whom should I serve water and to whom should I refuse? I serve water to everyone who is in need and comes to me. You, yourself, have bestowed the service of giving water to those in need. The Guru was very pleased to hear the answer of Bhai Kanahiya. Giving him balm and bandages, the Guru said to him, Bhai Kanahiya, from now on, besides serving water, you should also bandage the wounded.

    Take some other Sikhs with you and raise a team. You will be the leader of this band. Bhai Kanahiya did as directed. He set up a band of the Sikhs. He himself became the head of that band. This was the beginning of the first Red Cross service. Afterwards the bands looking after the needy and wounded began identifying themselves as 'Sewa Panthi' The Five Loved Ones By the supreme sacrifice of Guru Tegh Bahadur at Delhi, the fame of the institution of Guru Nanak spread to every nook and corner of the country.

    The rich and the poor from far and near started coming to Anandpur to see and offer respects to Guru Gobind Rai. The Guru dispensed with the middlemen called Masands to collect the offerings and tithe from the Sikhs for the Guru's institution. With the end of the middlemen, Sikhs themselves brought their offerings to Anandpur.

    This resulted in increase of love for the institution and the devotees began to get the pleasure of beholding their Guru face to face. The Muslim, petty landlords and other robbers began to harass the Sikh devotees on their way to Anandpur with their offerings. To escape the robberies and harassment on the way the Sikh devotees armed themselves. They used the arms for self-defence.

    The skirmishes were the signs of awakening of the lowly and down trodden classes. The Sikhs kept arms and had the skill to use them but did not carry them all the time. The Guru, finding the suitable time, decided to arm the Sikhs. He sent invitations to the Sikhs to assemble at Anandpur on Baisakhi day, the 30th March An estimated eighty thousand Sikhs were present at Sri Kesgarh in the morning congregation.

    He had a shining sword in his hand. Showing the sword to the congregation, he said in a thunderous voice, I need a head. Is there a Sikh who is ready to present his head to his guru. Seeing this phenomenon of a sword in the Guru's hand and the demand for a head by the Guru, the congregation was terrified with disbelief and silence fell all around. After the third call, Bhai Daya Ram, a kshatri by caste from Lahore, Punjab rose and requested, O' True lord, this body and soul belong to you and I offer it to you.

    Use it as you desire. I seek forgiveness for not offering myself on the first call. Holding him by the arm, the Guru took him inside the tent. Dread and fear gripped. Congregation heard a sound from inside the tent as if the Guru had severed the head of Bhai Daya Ram from the body. The Guru again came to the congregation and asked for another head. This time Bhai Dharam Dass, a farmer of Delhi offered his head. After the five Sikhs had offered their heads, the Guru brought them out of the tent and presented them before the congregation.

    They were the Panj Piaras the five loved ones who had offered their heads to the Guru. They were dressed in a similar attire as to the one worn by the Guru.

    They were the fully arrayed Singhs. The Guru called for an iron bowl and in that he put the water of river Sutlej and suger candy.

    Then the Guru and the five loved ones sat round that iron bowl. Taking a doubled edged sword, the Guru began stirring the water in the bowl and reciting the five banis sacred hymns.

    After the completion of recitation of the five sacred hymns, the Guru said, This is the Amrit nectar which has been prepared. Khalsa the pure will be created with this nectar. Khalsa will be the army of Wahiguru God. Khalsa will destroy tyranny. The nectar thus prepared was administered to the five loved ones. It was also sprinkled in their eyes and hair. By partaking of the nectar by the five loved ones, Khalsa was created. The Guru requested the Khalsa that he be administered the bounty of the nectar and be made Khalsa.

    The Guru bestowed the gift of the nectar on the Sikhs and made them Singhs lions and gave women the title of Kaur which means princess. He abolished the four castes and differences created by the Brahmins. He put women on equal footing to men in all respect. The differences between high caste and low caste people were abolished among the Singhs. All the Singhs became brothers. The dirt of ego was washed from the minds of the Singhs and they were made Khalsa - the pure one.

    The Guru made compulsory for the Singhs to wear the five kakars : Kes hair , Kangha comb , Kara iron bracelet , Kirpan sword and Kachhehra long breeches. He also forbid them from the company of other women adultery , to eat meat of animals killed slowly in Islamic ways, use of intoxicants to smoke and to cut hair and asked them to recite the five sacred hymns daily.

    He made Khalsa the saintly soldier. It is worth noting, that the five loved ones who offered their heads to the Guru were all from different states and only one of them was from Punjab. All the five were from different places, different professions and spoke different languages.

    From this, one can imagine how far the roots of Sikhism were spread. The Guru's devotees were not only in Punjab and Delhi but were all over India. The whole of India was sick of the tyranny being committed and was ready to sacrifice everything, including their very lives.

    Hymn O, Lord hear, this call of your devotee, Without you, even soft bed is full of pain, like sharing the palace with the snakes. Flask is like a thorn drinking cup like a dagger. Living with Thy Lord in a straw hut is heaven, hell is the rich dwellings without Thy grace. The Miracle Struggle for the throne of Delhi ensued among the sons of Aurangzeb after his death.

    Guru Gobind Singh was still in Punjab at that time. That squad joined Bahadur Shah near Mathura. Bhai Dharam Singh also gave a message to Bahadur Shah from the Guru that he himself will join the battle. Taking them along, the Guru set up camp on high ground near the scene of the battle.

    From that mound the Guru shot an arrow which killed Azam. Bahadur Shah won the battle. Reaching Agra on the 19th June he held a court.

    He gave award to his chiefs, ministers and generals. The king had hardly completed this sentence when an arrow fell near him. This arrow resembled the one that had killed his brother Azam.

    Bahadur Shah said unintentionally that it was a miracle. Instantly another arrow fell. With that arrow was attached a letter. It read, O, King, this is not a miracle, this is the excellence of skill. The King came to realise that the Guru was a reader of thoughts and a great master of the art of archery. He was convinced that his victory was the result of the Guru's help and blessings. Bahadur Shah seated Guru Gobind Singh on his right and offered great respect and honour.

    He offered him valuable gifts. It was hard for the royal head priest to bear this honour and respect for the Guru. To ascertain what super power the Guru had, he requested the Guru to show some miracle. A man condemned to death, can go free by his orders.

    The priest replied, This is no miracle. Every king can do this. Then the Guru showed him a gold coin and said, Money is also a miracle. The world is mad after it. Everything in the world can be bought with it. The priest was not satisfied with this answer also.

    When he asked the third time, the Guru placed his hand on the hilt of his sword and said, This is also a mircale. Those who do not agree, can be made to agree with this. The Guru was in the midst of these words when the head priest interrupted and said, Yes sir, I have seen the miracle.

    I don't need to see anything more. There were only two Singhs in the kitchen when Dalla called. The Guru said to them, I have called only one Sikh for the test and not two. Both the Singhs made a request together, My lord, you have ordered for one Singh but had not mentioned any particular name.

    My lord, I heard your order first so I have presented myself. It is my privilage to become the target of the gun first. The Guru made both of them to stand one before the other and fired the bullet over their heads. Both the Singhs stood firm.

    When Dalla saw the courage of the Singhs he was ashamed of his cowardice and that of his hale and hearty soldiers. He came to realise what type of brave Singhs were by the side of the Guru in the fortress of Chamkaur. Dalla stopped praising his soldiers from that day onwards. That place is now known as Damdama Sahib. There, the village headman, Dalla came to the Guru and offered his services. When the governor of Sirhind came to know of the presence of the Guru at Dalla's place, he sent orders to Dalla, You have a rebel, Guru Gobind Singh at your place.

    Hand him over to me and you will be rewarded. If you do not obey my orders, I shall attack, and destroy you along with the Guru. Dalla did not pay any heed to the threat of the governor.

    He sent word to him, I will never handover the Guru to you at any cost. You may try whatever means you want. You can clear your doubt, you may have in your mind. Setting aside the fear of the governor, Dalla served the Guru very well and kept him at his place.
