Informed about miraculous powers of #GuruNanak causing grinder 2move on its own
Babur asked Nanak's blessings in his endeavour2 conquer🇮🇳
#GuruNanak replied
"you've come to conquer my land and you have the audacity to ask for my blessings".
This was the begining of the long history of hostility between the Moughals & all the Sikh #GurPurab
At 9yrs of age, #GuruGobindSingh 's father's severed head was brought to Anandpur for cremation.

Young GobindRai was shifted into the mountains at Paonta,because possibility of of him being taken hostage couldn't be ruled out.
Besides responsibilities as ruler of a community, #GuruGobindSingh learnt Sankrit,Persian in addition to Hindi,Punjabi,riding,shooting

He composed verses in4 languages,sometimes using all 4 in same poem.

He rewrote #Hindu religious verses, his favourite being 'Chandi di var'
#GuruGobindSingh 's Mission was clear,he wrote in his autobiography, 'Bicitra Natak':

#GuruGobindSingh bought land around Anandpur & built a chain of fortresses,Anandgarh,Keshgarh,Lohgarh,Fatehgarh & became more powerful than Rajput Chiefs of those territories

He sent 5 disciples to Benaras to study #Hindu Shastras & Sanskrit

These 5 were the #Nirmalas
#Nirmalas follow traditional #Hindu Brahmacharya pattern of life,
wear white clothes & are strictly vegetarian
Their interpretation of Sikh Guru writings have Bhramanical bias(unacceptable to some Sikhs today)
1st 5: Karam Singh,Ganda Singh,Vir Singh, Saina Singh,Ram Singh
In Anandpur, #GuruGobindSingh reared his 4 sons,Ajit,Jujhar,Zorawar & Fateh Singh

Martial atmosphere,expectancy of military action was created;

"Raj karega khalsa Aaki rahe na koe,
Khawar hoe sabh milainge bacheh sharan jo hoe"

In Uggardanti Baani, #GuruGobindSingh ji prays to Shakti Bhagwati Durga to bless him to vanquish the evil invaders so that Hindu Dharma could prevail.
