"The Akali of the Sikhs," The Akali army was called the Akal Sena or Akal Fauj but was informally known as the Budha Dal or army of Baba Budha Ji. Its primary function was to defend Sikhism and all who sought the protection of the Sikhs from the then oppressive Mughal empire which had tortured and executed the fifth Guru, Arjandev. It was his son, Akali Guru Har Gobind, who engaged the Mughal forces in four battles and gained four victories.

This is a gathering of Lovers. In this gathering there is no high, no low, no smart, no ignorant, no special assembly, no grand discourse, no proper schooling required. There is no master, no disciple. This gathering is more like a drunken party, full of tricksters, fools, mad men and mad women. This is a gathering of Lovers. Rumi Doy Sufi Art
