Birth / Creation of Khalsa / The Beloved Five – Teachers’ Notes

On the Baisakhi day of the year 1699 A.D. Guru Gobind Singh held a big
gathering at Anandpur. It was held at the place where now stands the
gurdwara named Keshgarh Sahib. After the morning service, he stood up,
drew his sword and said aloud, 'Is there anyone here ready to lay down his life
at my call? This sword of mine is crying for the blood of a dear Sikh of mine!’

                   At this call, the whole assembly was filled with terror and amazement. The
                   Guru went on repeating his demand for the head of a dear Sikh. At the third
                   call Bhai Daya Ram got up and offered his head. The Guru pulled him into a
                   nearby tent. The sound of a blow, as of sword cutting off a man's head, was
                   heard from inside the tent. A stream of blood flowed out of the tent. The
Guru came out. He waved his sword dripping with blood. He called for another Sikh's head. At
this Bhai Dharam Das stood up and offered his head to the Guru. He was taken into the tent.
Again the sound of a sword-blow and a body falling to the ground were heard from inside the
tent. A fresh stream of blood was seen to come out. In the same three other Sikhs stood up, one
after the another and offered their head to the Guru. They were Bhai Mohkam Chand, Bhai
Himmat Rai and Bhai Sahib Chand.

Then dressing the five in handsome new clothes, the Guru brought them before the
assembly. He then baptized them with his Amrit-Sweetened water stirred with a
two-edged sword called Khanda. He called them his Beloved Five. He made their
names end in 'Singh'. They became Bhai Daya Singh, Bhai Dharam Singh, Bhai
Mohkam Singh, Bhai Himmat Singh and Bhai Sahib Singh.

Then the Guru desired his Beloved Five to prepare Amrit (nectar) in the same way as he had
done. They obeyed. When it was ready, he stood up before the them with folded hands and said
'Now, my dear ones, baptize me as I have baptized you. Make me a Singh as I have made you
Singhs. Don't feel puzzled. Don't hesitate. My dear ones are my Guru. I am your disciple. They
baptised him as he had said and he thanked them by saying 'Now my name is not Gobind Rai, but
Gobind Singh'.

               The Guru also gave his new Khalsa a unique identity. He also offered five
               emblems of purity and courage. These symbols are worn by both men and
               women and are popularly known today as Five Ks: Kesh, unshorn hair; Kangha,
               the wooden comb; Karra, (made of steel or iron) Kirpan, the sword; and
               Kachera, the underwear.

Having offered their heads to the Guru in response to his amazing call, they became martyrs.
From that day they were living martyrs. They became his body and soul. They remained with
him to the end of their earthly lives.

Their names have become immortal. They will be remembered as long as the Sikh community
lasts. They are remembered daily, morning and evening in every place where a Sikhs lives. Every
time a Sikh recites the Sikh prayer he repeats their names. Every time Karah Parshad is
distributed in a Sikh congregation, their share is taken out before distribution among those
present.

The Four Noble Truths




The Four Noble Truths are:

   1.   We all suffer
   2.   Our suffering is caused by craving
   3.   There is a way to stop craving & suffering
   4.   That way is the Noble Eightfold Path

Buddhists believe that when the Buddha became Enlightened, he found the answer to the
question of why there is unhappiness and suffering in the world. He became free from suffering
himself and saw that others could do the same. He walked a hundred miles to Sarnath to find his
five friends. He wanted to tell them what he had discovered.

The Buddha used a well known Indian medical formula to help explain the Four Noble Truths to
his friends. Buddhists believe that the Buddha’s teaching is a cure for the world’s illnesses.

   1.   What is the illness?
   2.   What has caused the illness?
   3.   Does a cure exist?
   4.   The remedy - what does the patient need to do in order to be cured?



1. THE FIRST NOBLE TRUTH - the illness. The illness is the suffering and unhappiness that
everyone feels at some time in their lives.

2. THE SECOND NOBLE TRUTH - the cause of the illness. The cause of unhappiness is craving. We
tend to want more and more of everything. We become unhappy with what we have. There is
always something else that is going to make us feel right.
Resource Pack: Unit 6B: What’s It Worth Fighting For?


3. THE THIRD NOBLE TRUTH - a cure is possible. It is possible to be happy and free from craving.
This state of perfect freedom and happiness is the same as Enlightenment.



4. THE FOURTH NOBLE TRUTH - the remedy. The way to overcome the craving which causes our
unhappiness is to follow the Noble Eightfold Path. This path is sometimes called The Middle
Way; it is a middle way between extremes. The Buddha had once lived a life of luxury as a
prince. He had also tried a life of extreme hardship - the ascetic life. He taught that following
the Noble Eightfold Path, a middle way, leads to happiness and freedom from suffering.

The Four Noble Truths




   1. Dukkha or unsatisfactoriness: It is not difficult to see that there is
      suffering and unhappiness in life, both in the world at large and within our
      own experience of ourselves

   2. Suffering and unhappiness are caused by selfishness and greed: We do not
      like suffering and unhappiness; it is what we want to move away from. To do
      this we need to understand and remove its causes

   3. It is possible not to suffer – there is a state free from suffering: this is the
      goal towards which everyone can move. It is the goal to which Buddhists
      choose to move

   4. The Path out of suffering – the Noble Eightfold Path: this is the path of
      growth that human beings have to tread and that enables us to cultivate the
      positive in all aspects of our lives and to overcome suffering
