Guru Har Krishan

Guru Har Krishan

On March 30, 1664, Guru Har Krishan, the eighth Guru of Sikhism, breathed his last. Guru Har Krishan was the youngest of all the Sikh Gurus. His had a tenure of only 2 years, 5 months and 24 days, yet within this short period he served humanity to the best of his ability. An epidemic of smallpox swept through Delhi when the guru was visiting, and he selflessly tended to the patients irrespective of their religion, caste, or community. Har Krishan was born on July 23, 1656, in Kiratpur Sahib, Rupnagar, Punjab, India, to Guru Har Rai and Kishan dei (Mata Sulakhni). He had one elder brother Ram Rai. His father was the seventh guru of Sikhism and well-known for being a compassionate and wise soul. As he was dying, the boy muttered the words “Baba Bakale,” meaning that his successor should be sought in the village of Bakala. After a search was conducted, Tegh Bahadur, son of Hargobind, the sixth Guru, was located in Bakala and anointed the ninth Guru.
