Guru Teghbahadar Sahib: The Benevolent Warrior. Jasleen Kaur talks about how death is a thing we all must do. But we are deeply afraid of it. In classically religious Sikh and non-Sikh understandings, and even in non-religious understandings, death is personified as an aggressive thing that snatches us away, drags us by our hair, beats us over the head. It is merciless. It is violent. We dread it. Where does this understanding come from?

Shrist ki Chadar Guru Teghbahadar: The Contemporary Indian Perspectives

With Guru Tegbahadar Sahib’s ideology and martyrdom, an entirely new set of discourse appears at the forefront of the Sikh philosophical thought that needs to be read as a turning point in the history of the Indian subcontinent altogether.

In this light, the presentation focuses on the circumstances that led to Guru Sahib’s martyrdom, significance, and impact. This will be substantiated with four distinct saloks (couplets) revered by Guru Sahib that stand out in the Indian poetic tradition of those times.
