Gur Gaddi Diwas

Guru HarGobind Singh ji

Guru HarGobind Ji (19 June 1595 - 3 March 1644) was the sixth of the Ten Gurus of Sikhism. He became Guru on the 11 of June, 1606, following the footsteps of his father, Guru Arjan Dev Ji.Guru Hargobind Ji introduced the process of militarization to Sikhism. While the ceremonial rites were being performed by Baba Buddha Ji, Guru HarGobind Ji asked Baba Buddha Ji to adorn him with a sword rather than the Seli (Silk or loosely woven cap) of Guru Nanak Dev Ji which had been used previously by the earlier Gurus. Guru HarGobind Ji then put on not one, but two swords; one on his left side and the other on his right. He named one "Miri" representing Temporal Power, and the other "Piri" representing Spiritual Power, one to smite the oppressor and the other to protect the innocent. Guru HarGobind Ji carried the same light of Guru Nanak Dev Ji, and he added to it the luster of the sword
