-On 16 June 1606, the Mughal Emperor Jahangir ordered that Guru Arjan Dev Ji, be tortured and sentenced to death after the Guru had refused to stop preaching his message of God as started by Guru Nanak Dev Ji. The Guru was made to sit on a burning hot sheet while boiling hot sand was poured over his body. After enduring five days of unrelenting torture, Guru Arjan Dev Ji was taken for a bath in the river. As thousands watched he entered the river, never to be seen again.
-In the great darkness of this world, the Lord revealed Himself, incarnated as Guru Arjun. Millions of pains are taken away, from those who drink in the Ambrosial Nectar of the Naam, says Mat'huraa. O mortal being, do not leave this path; do not think that there is any difference between God and Guru. The Perfect Lord God has manifested Himself; He dwells in the heart of Guru Arjun. ||5|| As long as the destiny written upon my forehead was not activated, I wandered around lost, running in all directions. I was drowning in the horrible world-ocean of this Dark Age of Kali Yuga, and my remorse would never have ended. O Mat'huraa, consider this essential truth: to save the world, the Lord incarnated Himself. Whoever meditates on Guru Arjun Dev, shall not have to pass through the painful womb of reincarnation ever again. ||6|| In the ocean of this Dark Age of Kali Yuga, the Lord's Name has been revealed in the Form of Guru Arjun, to save the world. Pain and poverty are taken away from that person, within whose heart the Saint abides. He is the Pure, Immaculate Form of the Infinite Lord; except for Him, there is no other at all. Whoever knows Him in thought, word and deed, becomes just like Him. He is totally pervading the earth, the sky and the nine regions of the planet. He is the Embodiment of the Light of God. So speaks Mat'huraa: there is no difference between God and Guru; Guru Arjun is the Personification of the Lord Himself. ||7||19|| -Savaiye -Bhatt Mathura(SGGS 1409)
