Kirpa Barsha. In the year 1673 when Guru Sahib Ji was engaged to Mata Jito Ji, Guru ji's father-in -law wanted the marriage party to go to Lahore. However, instead of going to Lahore Guru Ji established a new township near Anandpur Sahib and named it Guru Ka Lahore. When the residents complained of water shortage, Guru Ji struck the ground with this very barsha and water came gushing out.

"I am thine, death is nothing to me.

I wear arms not to kill but to dazzle with them,flash the eyes of cowardly kings

and to blazon in letters of fire the supreme majesty of love over all.
I need no kingdoms on this earth; I lust not for shining Gold nor for the beauty of woman.
I own nothing. All belongs to Him, the Lord.

If he has chosen to adorn my smile of knowledge-Absoloute with the flash of His cleansing sword it is His pleasure.

My religion then is of His Sword.
Guru Gobind Singh
