Because of his dedication to God, his fearlessness and his desire to protect the people from being oppressed, he lead to establish the Khalsa- a military force of saint-soldiers which he baptized.

Under Guru Gobind Singh Ji’s guidance and inspiration, the Khalsa followed a strict moral code and spiritual discipline. It was through his courage that the people rose against the oppression of the Mughal ruler in India at the time. Apart from being a spiritual and a military leader, he was also a gifted writer who did literature work. Before his death in 1708, he declared the Guru Granth Sahib, which is Sikhism’s Holy Scripture to be the permanent Sikh Guru.
