My dear sagacious readers listen further,
to the life story of Nihang Gurbakhsh Singh.

Sublime martyrdom did he achieve, at the sacred shrine at Amritsar. Strapping young and a great warrior was he, dressed in blue robes, of immaculate conduct was he. A dose of cannabis would he partake every morning, daily ablutions would he perform thereafter. Early in the morning would he take a bath, gurbaani would he recite while donning his turban.

Armaments of steel would he pay obeisance to, those armaments would he carry after worshipping these. A rosary made of steel beads and steel would he wear, with bracelets of steel would he adorn his wrists.

Steel Quoits and chains would he wear round his turban, protection of these steel armaments would he seek.

Steel gloves on hands and steel club round waist would he wear, undergarments made out of one and quarter yard of cloth he would wear. With a steel armour would he cover his whole body, a daily religious congregation would this Nihang hold.


This is a truly panthic effort, we would be honoured to add your findings here. Please provide the exact reference and content in either Gurmukhi or English. Puraatan ithihaas, puraatan rehit or Gurbaani is foundational. But if you have any other useful and relevant references we will certainly consider it.
