About Guru Teg Bahadur
Guru Teg Bahadur is also known by the name Guru Tegh Bahadur Sahib Ji among the Sikhs. He was the son of Guru Hargovind, who was the 6th Sikh Guru. He was born in the -then center of faith of the Sikhs, Amritsar of Punjab. Teg Bahadur was taught the martial arts such as archery and horsemanship. The extended spells of contemplation and seclusion gave him a deep mystical personality, as believed by his followers.
Teg Bahadur was married to Mata Gujri on the 3rd of February in the year 1631. He was honored the Sikh Guru on the 20th of March in 1665. Before this honor, there was a dramatic sentimental issue caused by about 22 pretenders, who claimed to be the 9th Sikh Guru. They took the advantage of the last words of Har Krishan when ill with smallpox. The words were Baba Bakale, which meant that his successor would be found at a place called Bakale.
To astonishment, it was a trader named Baba Makhan Shah Labana, who first pointed out that Teg Bahadur, was to be the rightful successor of Har Krishan. After the honor, Teg Bahadur went on carrying out all the duties of the Sikh Gurus and led them fruitfully by spreading the teachings of Guru Nanak all over India. Guru Teg Bahadur was infamously known to be executed by the Mughal Emperor of his time, Aurangzeb. This execution event took place in the city of Delhi.
