Guru Gobind Singh Jayanti or the Prakash Parv of the tenth Sikh Guru will be celebrated on January 17 this year. The day will commemorate the 357th birth anniversary of the last personal Guru of Sikhism.

Guru Gobind Singh Ji was born on December 2, 1666 in Patna, Bihar. He was son of Guru Tegh Bahadur (the 9th Guru) and Mata Gujri. In 1956, his father was killed by Mughal Emperor Aurangzeb for refusing to adopt Islam. In 1676, at the age of 9, he was proclaimed to be the tenth Guru of Sikhs on Baisakhi. His birthplace in Patna is now famous as Takhat Shri Harimander Ji Patna Sahib.

Guru Gobind Singh was a man of great intellect. He codified Sikh law, wrote martial poetry and music, and was the author of the Sikh work called the ‘Dasam Granth’ (“Tenth Volume"). He also compiled Guru Granth Sahib, the holy scripture of Sikhism.

The greatest achievement of Guru Gobind Singh was his creation of Khalsa in 1699. He introduced the five Ks (Kesh, Kara, Kanga, Kachera, Kirpan) to the community.

Before he died in 1708, he proclaimed himself to be the last of the personal Gurus and declared Guru Granth Sahib—the Adi Granth—to be the permanent Sikh Guru.
