Break Free From Your Mental Prison Embracing the Wisdom of Bandi Chorh Divas
Bandi Chorh Divas, also known as Diwali for Sikhs, is a significant Sikh festival celebrated to honor Guru Hargobind Ji's release from imprisonment. In 1619, Guru Hargobind Ji refused to leave Gwalior Fort without the release of 52 Rajput kings who were unjustly imprisoned there. He negotiated their release, emphasizing the importance of standing up for the oppressed. This event signifies the triumph of righteousness over tyranny and the importance of freedom and justice.
