Artist's Notes

“He is a warrior, who fights in defense of righteousness against one’s own inner evils.
He may be cut apart, piece by piece, but he never leaves this field of battle!”

– Bhagat Kabir ji (Guru Granth Sahib, 1105)

Baba Deep Singh, Harimandir Sahib, Golden Temple

Baba Deep Singh

Baba Deep Singh ji is revered by Sikhs as one of the most honoured martyrs. He is remembered for his devotion to the Sikh religion, and his sacrifice for Shri Harimandir Sahib, commonly referred to as the Golden Temple or Harmandir Sahib. Baba ji was born in a village called Pohuwind in the district of Amritsar, in 1682. He went to Anandpur Sahib on the day of Vaisakhi, and was initiated into Khalsa. Like the other Khalsas, he spent much time learning martial arts and discipline, horse riding, and studying of Adi Granth, the Sikh scripture. In 1702, he got married and settled down. Later, he helped make copies of Adi Granth, with Bhai Mani Singh.

In 1708, he went on several campaigns under Baba Banda Singh ji Bahadur, and was later appointed by Nawab Kapur Singh in 1733. During the Vaisakhi of 1748, 65 smaller squads got united, and were reorganized to 12 bigger ones, with Baba Deep Singh ji as the leader for one of them. This squad was named Shaheed, after Baba ji’s martyrdom.

Baba Deep Singh ji on his missions, saved many women and children from the hands of Ahmad Shah Abdali – during Abdali’s 4th invansion. He also recovered the vast amounts of treasure that Abdali was transporting along with the female slaves. Abdali, while departing from Lahore, ordered his son also the governor of Lahore, Taimur Shah, to demolish gurudwaras. He demolished and desecrated the Harimandir Sahib.

When Baba ji heard of his actions, he immediately called forth a meeting at Harimandir Sahib. Seeing approximately 5000 Khalsa move to the Gurudwara, Taimur Shah planned an attack. He positioned his armies 6 miles from Harimandir Sahib; it wasn’t long before both armies clashed near Gohalwar in 1757.

During the battle, an opposing commander by the name of Attal Khan made a fatal blow on Baba Deep Singh ji’s neck. A nearby Sikh reminded him of his duties, and hearing this Baba Deep Singh ji supported his broken neck with one hand, picked up his Khanda with the other, and charged! He was filled with such strength that he continued the fight until he reached the periphery of Harmandir Sahib, where he passed away.

    No joke — I have never spent as much money on anything in my life, other than my house and my wife’s wedding ring! But the results are stunning. The frames are incredible and IMO accent and highlight the unreal beauty of your work. So proud.

    Have you ever pondered how strange it is for strangers to see your art work on a daily basis and ruminate over it? I think that’s nuts. Rarely does a week go by where I don’t think about your work or at least stare at it. I’ve told people that if my house were on fire, after my family I would be grabbing the paintings.

    You deserve the praise!
