, A Journey through Sikh History

GURDWARA SRI MEHDIANA SAHIB is situated in the Village Mehdiana, Distt. Moga. SRI GURU GOBIND SINGH JI came here while travelling accros the Malwa region. During the Mughal rule, SRI GURU GOBIND SINGH JI while delighting the followers of Raikot, Lamme Jattpure & Maanke village, reached Mehdiana Dhaab (A natural water reservoir ) and stopped here looking at the holy water of this Dhaab. There was no habitation till 2-3 miles. At this Dhaab, SRI GURU GOBIND SINGH JI & the Singh followers did Daatan (Piece of a twig of tree used as tooth brush) and took bath. Then SRI GURU GOBIND SINGH JI started meditating. Bhai Daya Singh Ji requested his GURU SAHIB that the Singhs and their family have parted and what is the next step they should take. GURU SAHIB instantly put the sword on his chest and said that Bhai Daya Singh I have returned the Debt & have become victorious. GURU SAHIB Ji replied with humbleness that Singh and Tiger are king of one jungle. Singhs should keep faith in Almighty. Bhai Daya Singh Ji again requested GURU SAHIB on behalf of all the Sikh followers to which SRI GURU GOBIND SINGH JI humbly said

"Singho Dhaende Desh Da Jadon Sahara Nahin Si Udo Pita Nu Desh Te Variya Main|
Mata Gujari Sirhind De Vich Gujari Sama Gujareya Jiven Gujareya Main|
Char Puttar San bakshe Parmatma Ne Oh Vi Joda Joda Kar Ke Variya Main|
Mainu Shahenshah Na Tusi Kaho Singho Kishtan naal Hai Karza Utareya Main|"

GURU SAHIB said humbly " Sangat is bigger than GURU". Sent father to Delhi on Kashmiri Pandits plea, then on Sangat's request left Anandpur Sahib, left Chamkaur Di Garhi on Sangat's request, now you are asking me on Sangat's behalf. It was evening by the time the discussions were going on and on, he prepared his mind to prepare the Jafarnama. There was no place to stay on the Dhaab, so GURU SAHIB went to village Chakkar. The next day going via village Takhtupura, village Madhe & village Deena Sahib, he made his mind to stay with Lakhmir and Shamir. Here he wrote the Jafarnama & sent it to Auranzeb in Aurangabad through Bhai Daya Singh and Bhai Dharam Singh. This place has GURU SAHIB's blessing, so whoever comes here with a wish, his prayer doesn't go waste.
