In this painting of the Golden Temple or Harmandir Sahib, I imagine what Shri Harimandir Sahib might have looked like before it was covered in gold and marble.

A speed painting is an exercise where the artist uses quick but controlled brush strokes to create a work of art, under a limited amount of time usually 1-3 hours (though some of the recent ones are more like 5-7 hours). Speed paintings can be used to loosen up or even set down an idea for a bigger painting.

Hind di chadar Shri Guru Tegh Bahadur ji was previously known as Tyag Mal. However upon displaying martial prowess on the battlefield, came to be known as Tegh Bahadur, at young age. Later he resigned to small house in Bakala, where he meditated until he was discovered by Makhan Shah, and took the Gurgaddi after Guru Hari krishan ji.

Young Guru Nanak Dev ji

Gurus always said everyone follows faith blindly without understanding. So they tried to instill understanding in everyone. To the Gurus, hindus, muslims, christians, now sikhs, everybody was the same, they are all ignorant of God. That’s how the prophets also saw the people. Jesus said on the cross, “forgive them, Father, for they don’t know”. To the Gurus, no religion was a hurdle. It was ignorance of God that was the hurdle. That’s why the Gurus always focused on ignorance rather than religion.

In this sketch, he is wearing the classic 17th century Dumalla, along with kalgi, chola and mala. On his cheeks, flows curls of hair. This is a typical depiction of Guru Hari Krishan ji and even young Guru Gobind Singh ji that is seen in the paintings of their times.

After the martyrdom of Guru Gobind Singh ji’s sons, Guru Sahib having no heir to the Gurgaddi passed the torch back to the granth that was compiled by his great grandfather, Guru Arjun Dev ji. From that moment on, this compilation of teachings came to be known as the Guru Granth Sahib.

How can one realize the truth that all is impermanent?
By staying with the current of the eternal present moment one can recognize things for what they truly are.

What is the eternal present moment?
The eternal present moment cannot be stated, you can only be with it. But know that it is in the present moment in which things take form, in which living beings come to life, in which greatness is obtained, in which one becomes high or low, in which pleasure and pain is received. Everything is happening inside this eternal moment, there is nothing outside of it.

    Actually I don’t understand what is your motive to show these pictures. One side Sikhism are not believe in the Guru’s picture and you shown these picture Guru’s are very similar to a real men. I don’t know who is in picture but I am sure this is not my Guru’s.

    And how you know that Guru Nanak Dev G looking in young age like that.

    • Bhagat Bedi January 7, 2016 at 8:02 pm Permalink

      I am merely a vessel through which Waheguru is creating paintings. And the reason why I trust him, is because he is guiding me to knowledge.

      And this is knowledge that most Sikhs and Sikh painters are not aware of. A simple example of this knowledge is the dumalla style. No other artist knows how to paint a puratan dumalla that Guru Sahibs wore.
      I know what a puratan dumalla is and I know how Guru Sahib’s tied their dastaars. I am ignorant but I know only because Waheguru has shown me the way and he is getting me to paint these pictures the way he intends them to be.

        That is Hunkaar talking and not you. And you are also so very wrong about the way the Khalsa wore the dhumala. Civilians men tied the dastaar the way you have painted but not the Khalsa, you should do more research on this topic, best way is to meet the elders of Nihang jathebandhis and talk to them. You are really doing great work, this is also parchaar, I also draw and paint but I give my work away for free.

        • Bhagat Bedi January 14, 2017 at 7:14 pm Permalink

          You are thinking of the Nihang’s Boonga style dastaar. It emerged much later during late 1700s, many decades after Guru Gobind Singh ji passed away in 1708.

          Guru Gobind Singh ji did not tie this style.

          The style of Dastaar that Guru Gobind Singh ji tied, while he was around in the 1600s, was much different from the Sikhs (including Nihangs) in 1780-1800s. This style I call the Puratan Dumalla. This is what I have painted in my portrait of Dashmesh Pita ji and then again in the painting of Banda Singh ji Bahadur.

          Dastaar styles have changed over time. New trends emerge, older trends die out – it is nature.

          The Dastaar that Guru Sahib tied, died out by the late 1800s. I am trying to bring it back. I figured out how to tie this style. You can see my Instagram to check it out –

          I must agree there is a lot of hunkaar in your post, if you feel waheguru has blessed you with knowledge that is great but to use it for personal gains of the magnitude you are commanding on here is ironic. Furthermore the clear endorsements of hindu deities is a strict conflict with fundamental sikh principles. If you care about the sangat then you should allow the sangat to volunteer how much they pay you for your reproductions not demand a fixed price in the hundreds upto thousands.
          No one knows what the greatest of great gurus looks like and to be honest we dont need to know, we need to follow their words and scriptures not the kalpana of artists.
          I notice you also endorse tattoos which again are anyi sikh as they require hair to be removed from the body, you have works of hanuman and shivji…lets recalibrate on the following ram rahim puran quran anekh kahe math ik na manyo….

          Your ability as an artist is fantastic use it to help people get back into sikhi not to delude them with your fantasies of what the gurus looked like and stop painting hindu mythological creatures like hanuman we do not accept these creatures as god god has no form no beginning and no end.

          • Bhagat Bedi January 16, 2017 at 6:57 pm Permalink

            I have ahankar that’s why I have attached myself firmly to Guru ji. That’s why I place my trust in Guru Sahib, to guide me towards the right decisions.

            Guru ji commanded me to make paintings of Sikh itihaas, Gurus and mythology, paintings of Gods. As he commands, I do. I am the vessel through which he fulfills his command.

            The sangat can always negotiate the prices and have been doing since I started painting. If you can’t pay what I have listed here, you can contact me and we can work out a price that works for you.

            Exactly, no one knows what our Gurus looked like, no one knows what our Warriors looked like. That’s the challenge that I face when I try to think about what they looked like. I need to know what they looked like. So I do my best to find out about Guru’s paintings from their time as well as their clothing and turbans of their time and I paint them to my best understanding.

            My paintings have helped millions of Sikhs to connect to Sikhi. They even helped you to think about the Gurus and their teachings as you were writing your comment.

    There is so much negativity in responses. Stop judging. Everyone has the right to their opinion but to be so judgemental.its wrong. Instead STFU and appreciate what talent is bestowed upon this man he could have painted anything…naked women, or whatever but instead chosen to paint Sikhism. We were taught to treat with respect and instead we become egocentric. So many youngsters font go to the temple due to these politics. If we are to leave comments….instead leave ones staying how beautiful the paintings are. The peace in the eyes. The hues that sooth. You don’t like it…….don’t look at it or buy it. May Waheguru bring you all some peace.

    sir you have good talent but you have not make photo very clear. you have used a little of blue color in your paintings and it all over bhanwan color in your total paintings even everywhere in the paintings that is considered at present to be the color of r s s and modi regime an attack on sikhism through badals. in a painting you have shown back of a dhaal which is clearly showing the ganesh mouth the two eyes and a sund in a very artistic way in a painting you have shown bhai ghaniaa ji serving water to a fallen sikh and there is a bhangwan bad z on his turban and a kalgi that is not true true image of a sikh it is only weard by the guru himself and selected prominent sikhs. so there seems reason to use the bhangwan in your paintings. singh sahib try go through the paintings of bhai sahib bhai sobha singh, bhai jarnail singh ji and great painters. your photos/painting do show any jalal over the faces of gurus as well as othe sikh generals nothing is there in the paintings to attract sikhs to buy your painting. do not use bhangwan color and involve any hindu elements if you want to inspire sikhs to buy your paintings. you have the ability and great talent required for this art. to get the price of your paintings is your right because you are doing very hard job. i don’t ask you sell them free as no sikh in world i have seen or heard to do this or other job complimentary for the sikhism. so do very good job and earn very good by selling your art. you are not defrauding any body by selling this. god bless you ji.

    Excellent work! For all the haters that have an issue with this artwork being sold – Kirat Karo, which means to earn an honest, pure and dedicated living by exercising one’s God-given skills, abilities, talents and hard labor, is an important pillar of Sikhi. Thus, one should have nothing but respect for this artist!

    Sat Shri Akal

    I think you’re painting are excellent. You capture the mood and the emotions very well. My only criticism is these painting depicts alot of pain, suffering and aggression. Although this is very important, I would like to see more of our Gurus are at peace, meditating and engaging with their followers. Nevertheless keep up with your excellence. Look forward to your new creations.

    Sir you are the one that has hankar. Bhagat Bedi is doing such a beautiful thing here, these paintings are something that comes from inside him. And I’m sure for someone like him who who has so much love for our Gurus doesn’t mind ur harsh words as he only cares about his gurus guiding him to do such beautiful work. Keep up the great work Bhagat !!

    Hardeep Singhji: please grow up and get a life. Begin by learning about Sikhism. Your Gurus are a figment of your fantasy. The Sikh Gurus were Men chosen by God to enlighten mankind.
