Storyboard Text

  • In 1066 Guru Gobind Singh, the 10th guru, announced that the celebration of Vaisakhi was to be turned into the day the Sikhs turn into a group of "soldier saints"
  • Guru Gobind Singh founded the Khalsa in front of thousands. Later on in the festival, he went into a tent and came out with a sword in his hands. He challenged any Sikh who was brave enough to give his life for his faith.
  • One brave man volunteered and he and the Guru went inside the tent. There was a swish of a sword. The guru exited the tent alone, with his sword smothered with blood. The Guru repeated this four more times, until a total of five men had disappeared into the tent.
  • The crowd was very concerned until they saw five men exit the tent all wearing turbans with the Guru. These men became known as the " Panj Piare" or the "Beloved Five"
  • The men were then baptised into the Khalsa by the Guru. He sprinkled them with Amrit (" immortalising nectar" the Sikh term for holy water ) and said prayers.
