Navin Paneeri is a pictorial presentation depicting the pious and dedicated life of the Tenth Guru of the Sikhs, Guru Gobind Singh Ji. Known as Gobind Rai, he was born in 1666 A.D. at Patna. Guru Gobind Singh Ji was also known as the Tenth Nanak as he was the incarnation of Guru Nanak Dev and had his spirit within him. Guru Gobind Singh or Gobind Rai was the only son of Mata Gujri and Guru Teg Bahadur, the Ninth Guru.
Such was the power of the Guru, that wherever Guru Tegh Bahadur went, a gathering of worshippers of the religion and followers of the Guru would gather. In the chapter titled “The Saint and the Holy Child” readers get acquainted with the holy arrival of Guru Gobind Singh on earth and the premonition of Saint Bhikhan Singh while meditating in his own village. During meditation the saint saw a bright light and the image of a newborn to which he soon realized that there emerged a holy face sent by the lord. Saint Bikhan Singh was delighted when he met holy child Gobind Rai. He bowed in reverence for the child and touched his feet. The entire country was flooded with the news of the newborn holy child who would never cry but smiled at whosesoever addressed him.
He already knew swimming at the tender age of Three. No one ever taught him to swim but he still did it with ease. Guru Gobind Rai’s uncle, Kirpal Chand was a witness to it and watched the child swim much to his amazement. “Gobind Rai learnt how to swim in the Heaven itself. He is destined to give deliverance to millions of people; no river has the capacity to drown him.”
Guru Gobind Singh blessed a woman so that she begets a child. For the grace of the Guru and his blessings who was then just a child. In return of one boat he blessed the women, who later was a mother of five sons. This proved Guru Gobind Singh Ji’s divine powers. He did merciful mischief to help a poor women so that his mother Mata Gujri would help her and give her money. Guru Gobind Singh was also known by the unique name Kalgidhar, the lord of the Plume. Donning it on his turban the guru went out to play in his childhood.
