Gobind’s Legacy:
Sikh-Canadian Artist Kanwar Singh’s Latest Masterpiece





Sikh-Canadian artist Kanwar Singh hereby launches his latest creation, titled “Gobind’s Legacy”.

Young Gobind's legacy, immediately upon becoming the Tenth Guru, began when he graciously accepted the head of his beloved father Guru Tegh Bahadar, beheaded on the orders of the fanatical Mughal emperor Aurangzeb.

Rather than fall into despair, the nine year old Guru, now blessed with the light of Guru Nanak, comforted all those around him. At such a tender age he undertook the responsibility of uplifting the entire Sikh community, now on the brink of annihilation, fostering first an army, and soon a nation of pious ones to lead the land out of the darkness.

His majesty is as undeniable as his humility because he could kneel before the Khalsa, the order which he created, and ask for their acceptance of Him. He was no mere leader, but one who gifted us with generations of inspirational leaders who looked upon his memory as their guiding light. 

This legacy has outlived empires and nations, all now turned to dust and it will outlive all transitory things because Guru Gobind Singh is the giver of inspiration. He will always be sought and he will always be found.

And this is the legacy of Guru Gobind Singh Ji.
