SAHIB SRI GURU TEG BAHADAR JI MAHARAJ💫✨
On Aurungzeb's order Guru Teg Bahadar Sahib Ji was kept in chains and imprisoned in an iron cage . An Iron Cage was made especially to torture Guru Sahib. It was shorter than Guru Sahib's height and had sharp spikes pointing inwards so that Guru Sahib could neither stand upright nor lean against cage. Guru Sahib remained in the cage for 3 days. The Emperor's ministers tried their best to persuade him into accepting Islam but Guru Sahib remained firm.
While in the cage on his way to Delhi Guru Tegh Bahadur composed the following two Shloks: 📿Bal Chhutkio Bandhan Pare Kachhu Na Hoṯ Upaae
Kaho Nanak Ab Ott Har Gaj Jio Hohu Sahaae. ((53))
✨Bal Hoa Bandhan Chhute Sabh Kichh Hott Upaae.
Nanak Sabh Kichh Tumrai Hath Mai Tum Hi Hott Sahaaee. ((54)) 📿My strength is exhausted, and I am in bondage; I cannot do anything at all.
Says Nanak, now, the Lord is my Support; He will help me, as He did the elephant.((53))
✨My strength has been restored, and my bonds have been broken; now, I can do everything.
Nanak: everything is in Your hands, Lord; You are my Helper and Support.((54))

“You are all-knowing, You are forever compassionate; obtaining Your Name, I revel in it and make merry.
I offer my prayer to You; my body and soul are all Yours.
Says Nanak, this is all Your greatness; no one even knows my name.” SGGS, 383
