The Story

Guru Hargobind the sixth in the line of Guru Nanak, became the Guru of the Sikhs at the age of eleven after his father Guru Arjan was martyered on the orders of the mughal emporer in Jahangir. Guru Arjan forsaw the need for change in the Sikh panth. Guru Ajran’s last message to his son was, “Sit fully armed on his throne and maintain an army.” The martyrdom of Guru Arjan was a turning point for the Sikhs and Guru Hargobind became the embodiment of that change. At the ceremony of his ascension, Guru Hargobind declared his intensions by adorning his turban with a soverign’s aigrette in place of the holy man’s seli. He wore two swords representing Miri and Piri, to declare his temporal and spiritual authority.

Guru Hargobind began construction of the Akal Takhat in 1663 with his own hands, and only Baba Buddha and Bhai Gurdas assisted him in this task. The original takhat was a platform upon which Guru Hargobind would sit in the presence of the Sikh congregation and from which the spiritual and temporal concerns of the Sikh people could be addressed. The Guru built the Akal Takhat to serve the panth for eternity and as the seat of the sovereignty of the Sikh nation it has withstood the assaults of many would-be rulers of the subcontinent who have come and gone.

In recent times, it bore the Indian government’s assault on the Golden Temple – the Durbar Sahib – of Amritsar in June 1984, during the Gurpurab of Guru Arjan’s Martyrdom. This tragedy and the anti-Sikh pogroms, all in 1984 – as well as the ongoing brutalities by the Indian military across the Punjab countryside in the years that followed – have collectively gone down in history as, The Third Sikh Ghallughara/ Holocaust. From such tragedies has blossomed the Sikh tradition of taking an implacable stand against injustice and the vagaries of tyrannical rulers, a new and lasting dimension, which was added to Sikhism’s sense of mission and purpose by Guru Hargobind.
