    This is a beautiful piece however, some of the history seems to have inaccuracies in it. Although history is usually never completely accurate it was documented that Mai Bhago did not die in Khidrana. Guru Gobind Singh Jee and Mai Bhago were the sole survivors of the battle at Khidrana after which point, dressed in battle garbs accompanied Guru Gobind Singh Jee as his personal body guard. After the death of Guru Gobind Singh Jee she retired further south and settled near Bidar in the state of Karnataka where she lived to a ripe old age. Her place of residence was converted to a gurudwara and can now be visited as Gurudwara Tap Asthan Mai Bhago.

    I may be wrong so please review more historical sources. The sources I have looked at are the works of Bhai Piara Singh Padam, Bhai Santokh Singh’s Sooraj Parkash Granth, Bhai Kahan Singh Nabha’s Mahan Kosh and the writings of Prof. Teja Singh and Ganda Singh.

    I am sorry if I have made any mistakes or have offended anybody. Bhul chuk maaf karna jee..

    Vaheguroo Jee Kaa Khaalsaa! Vaheguroo Jee Kee Fateh!

    Sat Sri Akal Ji,
    It would be really nice if we could have this video with the option to download it instead of just having it on youtube.

    Vaheguru ji ka khalsa, vaheguru ji ki Fateh,

  4. My nickname since birth has been Mai, so I have always felt a great affinity with this great lady.

    I have, however, always had the impression that after Khidrana she stayed with Guru Ji as his bodyguard. I have never heard that she lived in the forest with yogis. I really like that part of her story, so please don’t think me rude if I ask for a reference as to where I can look it up.

    In my life, after 1984, I, too, ran away to the forest to live naked with yogis (symbolically) and Guru Gobind Singh Ji sent his messenger to clothe me and bring me home(symbolically). Please, it is important to me to verify that this incident happened – or didn’t. Whichever is true.

    I’m sorry if my request is offensive. Believe me, no offense is intended.

    Is there any substantial works on Mai Bhago to be read. Has there been an in-depth biography written about her, all I can find are 5 paragraph stories, romanticizing her life on the Web. I would be grateful for a lead. Thanks
