Soulful kirtan track to celebrate birthday of Guru Tegh Bahadur


By Asia Samachar | Kirtan |

Kirtan student Jasleen Kaur Monga released a soulful track on Salok Mahalla 9 to commemorate the Prakash Purab (birthday) of Guru Tegh Bahadur Sahib, the ninth Sikh Guru.

The composition are saloks by the ninth Sikh which form the concluding portion of the Guru Granth Sahib. It consists of 57 saloks and span just four pages of the Sikh scripture.

Each salok is a couplet consisting of 2 lines. This Bani was incorporated into the Guru Granth Sahib by Guru Gobind Singh ji and were composed by Guru Teg Bahadur while in the ‘Kotwali’ (prison) at Chandni Chowk, Delhi, before he achieved martyrdom.

These saloks form an important part of the epilogue when bringing to a close the reading of the Guru Granth Sahib (Bhog) on a religious or social occasion and should thus be the most familiar fragment of it, after the Japji Sahib, the Sikhs’ morning prayer.
