Vaisakhi: The Background Sri Guru Gobind Singh Jee Bhai Jaita Jee The Sees (head) of Sri Guru Tegh Bahadur Jee
ivswKI : Eye Witness Account (1699) On this day, the Guru prepared a new nectar, there were about 35-40 thousand people present in the gathering to hear the Guru. The Mughals at the time had four thrones(Delhi, Agra, Lahore and Klanaur) but the throne of the Guru (at Anandpur) had its own typical glamour. This throne beat all the mughal thrones in their splendour.
That day the Guru wore a gorgeous dress. He came into the court, unsheathed his sword and in a loud voice said, "I need one head", without any hesitation one Daya Ram came forward and offered himself for the sacrifice. The Guru, in front of the whole congregation, struck Daya Ram's head with his sword and severed it from his body. The audience was stunned and speechless. The Guru said again, "I need another head", immediately, Dharam Chand stood up and bowed to the Guru. The Guru severed his head too in one stroke. The audience panicked and started leaving the court. The Guru asked for another head and one after another beheaded three more devotees. Himmat Rai, Mokham Chand and Sahib Chand.
He called for a big stone and put on it an Iron bowl which had no handles. He poured water in the bowl and started churning it into nectar. The prophet of the infidels stirred the water with the sword and recited some holy words. Many people went to the Guru's mother and narrated to her the whole episode. The Guru then cleaned and washed the five corpses and their severed heads. He also cleaned the floor so that no mark of blood was left anywhere. Then the prophet of the infidels stitched the severed heads with one & other heads & the bodies and covered them with white sheets.
The Guru, then sat towards the heads of the corpses. He uncovered their faces and first put some nectar into Daya Ram's mouth and sprinkled it on his head and then all over his body and said, "say Vaheguru Jee Kaa Khalsa, Vaheguru Jee Kee Fateh". Immediately Daya Ram became alive. He stood up and repeated the words after the Guru. The whole congregation went pale with fear. Despite many thousands people present no one could breathe loudly. They all had frozen under the spell of the Guru’s miracle. He then sprinkled the nectar on the other four corpses and asked them to say "Vaheguru Jee Kaa Khalsa, Vaheguru Jee Kee Fateh".
They all came back to life and stood before the Guru with folded hands. The Guru then took all the five into an adjoining marquee. After a while they all came out dressed in new clothes. The Guru asked them to give a drink of that nectar to him. They asked him what he would pay for the nectar. The Guru said, "I promise that I will sacrifice my parents, my children and all that I posses for the well being of my people and country." Then the five offered that Nectar to the Guru and the Guru became Gobind Singh and the other five were also named: Daya Singh, Dharam Singh, Himmat Singh, Mohkam Singh and Sahib Singh (and were called the beloved ones).”
Abu Ul Turani writes that after watching all those miraculous happenings he wept and cried. He cursed himself for his treachery to the Guru. He then saw many thousand more begging the Guru for the Nectar. He too could not control himself and like the force of a magnet he felt pulled towards the Guru and begged him for a drop of the Nectar. The Guru patted him on the back, sprinkled nectar on his body and changed his name to Ajmer Singh and all his sins were washed away. He then joined the Guru's army and fought many battles against injustice. On that day he sent his last report to the Emperor. He wrote to him everything that he had seen and witnessed and warned him not to quarrel with the Guru, who in his opinion was Allah (God) himself. He also wrote that if the Emperor would not accept his plea then his empire would collapse and his name (Aurangzeb) would be rubbed from the pages of history.

The Panj Pyare Hands Up: 1.What does ‘Panj Pyare’ translate to in English? 2.Who are the ‘Panj Pyare’? Bhai Daya Singh, Bhai Dharam Singh, Bhai Himmat Singh,Bhai Mohkam Singh and Bhai Sahib Singh 3.Does anyone know what their names mean?
Panj Pyare The 5 Beloved Ones The meanings of the names of the five beloved actually indicate the qualities needed for a spiritual human being: Daya (compassion) is the first attribute necessary for a spiritual being. Without kindness you can not have religion. Dharam (religion and truth) is the son of compassion. Himmat (strength and courage) is the 3 rd attribute Mokham (order and determination) or discipline is necessary in our lives. Sahib (master and royalty) as we practice the above four qualities we become masters. These five qualities minus the 5 evils (lust, anger, greed, attachment and pride) provide for the complete and content human being
