The Sacrifices of Guru Gobind Singh

Illustration of Guru Gobind Singh From the Royal Falcon by Jessi Kaur
Sikhs can never forget the many personal sacrifices of Guru Gobind Singh. These began perhaps at birth when his father Guru Teg Bahadur could not be present while making a diplomatic tour of four years duration.
Prince Gobind Rai became guru at the age of nine with the beheading of his father by the Mogul Emperor, when Guru Teg Bahadur sacrificed himself to prevent forced conversion of Hindus to Islam.
Guru Gobind Singh's eldest two sons achieved martyrdom in battle with Mogul tyrants at the ages of 14 and 18.
Shortly afterward, the Moguls captured and imprisoned the Guru's mother and youngest two sons in an open tower. The young princes achievedmartyrdom at ages 9 and 7 when their captors had them bricked alive. Upon their demise the captors beheaded the children and delivered their heads toMata Gujri, their grandmother,  who suffered heart failure at the sight.
