Guru Gobind Singh with Chitta Baz
Guru Gobind Singh (1666-1708) (born Gobind Rai) - the tenth Sikh Guru, a spiritual master, warrior, poet and philosopher. When his father, Guru Tegh Bahadur, was beheaded for refusing to convert to Islam, Guru Gobind Singh was formally installed as the leader of the Sikhs at age nine, becoming the tenth Sikh Guru. Chitta Baz, (White Falcon), is traditionally the name given to one of Guru Gobind Singh`s favourite falcons that he would carry perched on his hand when going out for on a Shikar (hunt) or for some falconry. This image of the Guru the white falcon resting upon his right hand has survived in folklore and in portraiture, and he is known to this day as chittian bajanvala, Master of the White Hawk.
