Anokhe Amar Shaheed Dhan Baba Deep Singh Ji was born on this day in 1682 at Tarn Taran Sahib. The Guardian of the Sikh Kaum and General of the Shaheeds, Baba Deep Singh Ji fought with their head in their palm to fulfil their Ardas to Guru Sahib of reaching Harmandir Sahib and stop it being invaded by Mughals.
Baba Deep Singh Ji came to Guru Gobind Singh Ji at Anandpur Sahib at a small age and told his family he wished to remain in the charan of the Sikh Guru. Baba Ji was an embodiment of Simran and Sewa and they would wash all the sangats dishes in the evening no matter how long this took and scrub them until they could see Guru Gobind Singh Ji’s face in them.
Dhan Baba Deep Singh mastered martial arts and many languages and then got blessed with Amrit by Guru Gobind Singh Ji and the 5 Pyaare at Anandpur Sahib in 1699.
After this Baba Ji went to meet Guru Gobind Singh Ji at Damdama Sahib at a point where Maharaj had sacrificed their four Sahibzade and along with Shaheed Bhai Mani Singh, wrote saroops of Guru Granth Sahib Ji as Guru Gobind Singh Ji narrated all the baani from Ik Onkaar – AhtaraDasBees by mouth.
Baba Ji’s call for shaheedi came after they had spent years in their bhora in meditation, to reach Harmandir Sahib before the Mughals invaded and Baba Ji marched to Tarn Taaran and drew the line of Martyrdom, which all the Gursikhs crossed to join his army. Baba Ji showed the power of ardas when their head came off in combat and they had the Shakit and blessing to still fight on with their head in their palm until they reached Harmandir Sahib and surrendered their head and last breath in the Guru’s charan.
