Guru Hargobind was the only child of Guru Arjan Dev. He was invested with the Guruship on May 25, 1606 just days before his father's martyrdom. From a young age he was educated in the sciences, sports and religion. Baba Buddha was responsible for overseeing the Guru's religious teachings. During the Guruship ceremony, Guru Hargobind respectfully declined to wear the Seli(woolen cord worn on the head) but asked for two swords - a sword of shakti (power) and a sword of bhakti(meditation). Soon after his ascension to Guruship in 1606, he had a throne, called the Akal Takht built at the temple at Amritsar, from where he would administer Sikh affairs. Guru Hargobind donned the royal regalia of a King and was known by the Sikhs as Sacha Padshah (The True King). He encouraged Sikhs in physical activity and weapons training as well as prayers. Soon an army of one thousand horses was raised. During the life of Guru Hargobind some of the most influential Sikhs of the time like Baba Buddha, Bhai Gurdas and Baba Sri Chand passed away.
