Guru Gobind Singh, also named as Gobind Rai was the tenth leader of the Sikhs and a founder of Khalsa community which promises ‘to be pure, to be clear and to be free’; he was a spiritual master, warrior, poet and a great philosopher who also introduced the ‘five Ks’ of Sikhism namely, Kesh (uncut hair), Kanghi (wooden comb), Kara (iron bracelet), Kachera (100% cotton tieable undergarment) and Kirpan (iron dagger).
Painting shown on this page fulfils all the aspects of this Sikh Guru, who is seen riding on a horse to fight a battle; clad in mehendi green traditional costume that touches his feet, red jootis and the golden-green stylized turban (dastar) on his head identifies his unique identity, honour, self respect, courage, spirituality and piety. Painter has very gracefully depicted the white and black colored horse and that floral printed cloth that lies on its back; framed in a vast sandy background, with Gobind Singh ji carrying his revered implements and that winning courage on his face.
Gobind Rai was a learned man who had knowledge of many languages- Sanskrit, Urdu, Hindi, Braj, Gurmukhi and Persian and also enshrined Guru Granth Sahib as Sikhism’s primitive scripture and eternal guru.
