TODAY (2 January 2020) corresponding to Poh Sudi 7, 1723 Bk. (1665CE) is the Perkash Diharra of Sri Guru Gobind Singh Ji. This was the day Maharaj took his manifestation in the house of Mata Gujri Ji and Sri Guru Tegh Bahadur Sahib Ji at Patna Sahib. Such was the heart of Our Guru that despite sacrificing his family and regalia, he continued to pursue the cause of common men like us to be freed from the shackles of poverty and inferiority. He blessed us with sovereignty when we even failed to serve Him. No religious figure has ever blessed his form to their disciples except for Sri Guru Gobind Singh Ji. He even gave us his name and the honour of Him being our father. Bhai Nand Lal Ji writes;

Let us make this day to be the starting point to be closer to Him by partaking Amrit and following His conduct.
