Story of Shaheed Deep Singh - Naveen Panth Prakash



ਦੀਪ ਸਿੰਘ ਸ਼ਾਹੀਦ ਕੀ ਗਾਥਾ ਸੁਨੋ ਉਦਾਰ । ਧਰਮ ਜੁੱਧ ਕਰਿ ਸਿਰ ਦਯੋ ਥਯੋ ਸ਼ਹੀਦ ਵਿਚਾਰ ।⁣

Oh world listen to the story of Shaheed Deep Singh, For Dharam Judh he gave his head, contemplate how he attained martyrdom. ⁣

ਮਿਸਲ ਸ਼ਹੀਦਨ ਕਾ ਸਰਦਾਰੈਂ ॥ ਨਿਕਟਿ ਜਲੰਧਰ ਗ੍ਰਾਮ ਦੁਕੋਹੇ । ਕੇਰ ਹੁਤੋ ਸੰਧੂ ਜਟ ਵੋਹੇ ।੮।⁣

Baba Deep Singh was the leader of the Misal Shaheedan, He was born near the town of Jalandar at Dukohe, and was a Sandhu Jatt. ⁣

ਅਧਿਕ ਦਮਦਮੇਂ ਰਹਿ ਤਲਵੰਡੀ । ਹੁਤੋ ਬੀਰ ਬਰ ਬਲੀ ਘਮੰਡੀ ।⁣

He would remain at Damdama Sahib in Talwandi. He was a great and brave warrior. ⁣

ਸੁਨਿ ਬੇਅਦਬੀ ਬਹੁ ਗੁਰੁਦ੍ਵਾਰੈਂ ।ਚੰਡੀ ਚਢੀ ਤਾਂਹਿ ਅਤਿ ਭਾਰੈਂ ।੯।⁣

When hearing about the disrespect at the Gurdrawa [Harimandar], The spirit of Chandi arose within him.⁣

ਸੁਨਿ ਸਿੰਘ ਪਾਠ ਅਖੰਡ ਕਰਾਯੋ । ਹਮਨ ਕਰਯੋ ਕੰਗਨਾ ਬੰਧਵਾਯੋ ।⁣

Baba Ji organized an Akhand Paat and completed a Havan [before heading towards the battle] and tied a wedding bracelet around his wrist [a preparation for martyrdom as death is seen as a merging with their beloved Lord]⁣

ਸ਼ਹੀਦ ਦੀਪ ਸਿੰਘ ਜੂ ਮਹੀਪ ਪੰਥ ਮੈਂ ਤਹਾਂ । ਜਿਤੈ ਪਰੰਤ ਦੌੜ ਕੈ ਕਰੰਤ ਚੌੜ ਹੈ ਮਹਾਂ । ⁣

Shahid Deep Singh was the great king of the Panth ! Wherever he ran he caused great destruction [to the enemy forces]⁣

Giani Ji later on speaks about the famous event where Baba Ji lost his head in battle. ⁣

ਚਲੀ ਤੇਗ ਅਤਿ ਬੇਗ ਸੈਂ । ਦੁਹੂੰ ਕੇਰ ਬਲ ਵਾਰ । ਉਤਰ ਗਏ ਸਿਰ ਦੁਹੁੰ ਕੇ, ਪਰਸ ਪਰੈਂ ਇਕ ਸਾਰ ।੫੬। ⁣

The sword moved very quickly from both warriors [Baba Ji and his enemy]. Because of the strikes were at the same time, both of the warriors heads came off. ⁣

ਨਿਜ ਸਿਰ ਬਾਮ ਹਾਥਿ ਨਿਜ ਧਾਰਾ । ਦਹਿਨੇ ਹਾਥਿ ਤੇਗ ਖਰ ਧਾਰਾ ।⁣

His head was picked up and placed on his left hand, and with his right hand he held his sword. ⁣

When the Jatha of Singhs arrived at Amritsar at the Ramsar sarovar the cries of victory were heard.⁣

ਫਤੇ ਗਜਾਈ ਊਚਿ ਉਚਰ ਕੈ । ਅਏ ਬਿਵਾਨ ਦੇਵ ਗਨ ਲੈ ਕੈ । ਸੁਮਨ ਸੁਮਨ ਬਰਖੇ ਹਰਖੈ ਕੈ ।

The loud cries of victory were yelled ! Extremely happy the Gods and Goddesses came to greet them and were dropping flowers like rain [upon the warriors] ⁣

ਦੀਪ ਸਿੰਘ ਕੀ ਗਾਥਾ ਸੁਨਿ ਸੁਨਿ । ਧੰਨਯ ਧੰਨਯ ਸਭਿ ਕੈਹੈਂ ਪੁਨ ਪੁਨ ।

Oh listen to the story of [Baba] Deep Singh Shaheed. Everyone over and over again yells Blessed Blessed!⁣
