5. The Hindu Religion seeks Protection

6. The Unique Sacrifice

"The Lord protected their frontal mark and sacred thread; And performed a supremely heroic act in this age of  Ignorance.
To uphold righteousness, so supreme an act did He perform; He gave His head, but did not utter a word of sorrow.
For the sake of righteousness. He did this great heroic deed; He laid down His life but not the principles.
Miracles are a cheap way of fooling people; True Prophets of God are ashamed of displaying occult powers.
Guru Tegh Bahadur broke His earthly vase on the head of the Emperor of Delhi; And went to the Abode of God.
No one has ever done such a unique deed as did Guru Tegh Bahadur.
On the Ascent of Guru Tegh Bahadur, the whole world went into mourning.
Alas! Alas! rose the wailing cries from the earth; While the shouts of Glory! Glory! resounded the heavens."
(Guru Gobind Singh: Bachitar Natak)
