  • Artist: Bhagat Singh
  • Title: Baba Bakala Story - Guru Ship
  • Medium: Painting
  • Country: Canada

Guru Tegh Bahadur was anointed Guru in the city of Bakala after Makhan Shah Labana announced to the Sikh congregation that he had found the rightful Guru. The prophetic saying of Guru Harkrishan “The Guru, Baba [grandfather], resides in Bakala” was Makhan Shah’s guiding principle. This led him to Bakala where countless charlatans had set up camp to declare themselves the true Guru. Makhan Shah saw past these fake Gurus when he set eyes upon the undisturbed single pointed focus of Guru Tegh Bahadur.
