Guru Gobind Singh assumed Guruship on 11th November 1675 A.D. at Anandpur Sahib, Baba Ram Kanwar, a descendant of Baba Budha Ji performed the ceremony of Guruship. He presented the Guru, with a garland of pearls, a plumed turban, one sword, one horse, one falcon, and five coins of gold. Guru Ji looked very handsome and intelligent while sitting on the throne of Guruship. The congregation was full of joy and happiness. The musicians were reciting holy hymns.
After assuming the Guruship, Guru Gobind Singh presented Siropas to Baba Ram Kanwar, Baba Gurditta Ji, and other devotees.
Though Aurangzeb had issued strict orders for Sikhs, still millions of Sikhs reached Anandpur Sahib on the occasion of the ceremony. It is said that according to one estimate “Karah Parsad’ worth rupees fifty thousand was distributed among the Sikhs.
On assuming Guruship, Guru Ji felt that time had come to accomplish the great task, for which God had sent him in this mortal world. Guru writes in his autobiography named ‘Bachitar Natak’ as under:-
“I install and consider you as my son,
And create you in human form to spread My faith.
Go and spread the true religion of Mine.
Restrain the people from evil and worthless acts.
Spread righteousness in all places.
Capture and destroy the evil, the wicked and the sinful”.
“For this very purpose did I assume birth understand you,
holy men clearly in your souls.
To spread true religion, to uplift and to save the saints.
And to uproot and kill the tyrants one and all.”
So in order to fulfill his mission, he set about preparing himself and his people for that great cause. He understood that he had to turn the spiritually, physically, and mentally retarded people into a nation of solid saint soldiers. He himself was a child at that time. So he started to educate and train himself. He understood that great works of literature were in Sanskrit and Persian. So he learned Sanskrit, Persian, Brij Bhasha, and Punjabi. He also persuaded his followers to learn these languages. For this purpose, he arranged learned teachers of these languages for their education. To prepare saint soldiers he started to enroll soldiers and techniques of up-to-date warfare were taught to them.
