Here is a dose of daily religion from A to Z.
Today’s religious topic is as follows:
“Banda Singh Bahadur”, (b. 1670, Punch, India—d. June 1716, Delhi), in SIKHISM, first military leader to wage an offensive war against the Mughal rulers of India, thereby temporarily extending Sikh territory. Information about Banda Singh’s early life is scant. In his early life, he became a Vaisnava ascetic. In 1708, GURU GOBIND SINGH met him in Nanded, a town on the banks of the Godavari River in southern India, Singh. The Guru sent Banda Singh to the Punjab with the specific directive that he organize the Sikhs. It was under his command that they capture Sirhind, the most powerful Mughal garrison between Delhi and Lahore, in 1710.
Banda Singh established his capital in nearby Mukhilspur (c”city of the purified”), created an official seal, and struck new coins. The inscriptions on the seal and the coins indicate that Banda Singh regarded ultimate authority as being vested with God and the Gurus. Some years later Mughal forces ousted Banda Singh from the Sirhind area, chased his army into the Shivalik hills, and eventually captured him in the Gurdaspur area. Along with several hundred men, Banda Singh was taken to Delhi, where he was executed.
The 17th-century writer Banārasīdās casts his poem ‘Navarasa’ on the waters of the river Gomati after he rediscovers the Jain beliefs of his family. His military achievements earned him the epithet Bahadur (“brave”), and embezzled on the Sikh imagination that it was the prerogative of the Khalsa Sikh to rule the Pujab.
