Title Durga Prabodh
Description The poetic ballad by a famous Sikh scholar counters the then prevalent Brahminical belief that Guru Gobind Singh was a worshipper of Hindu goddess Durga. It enacts the Guru's exposure of a prominent Hindu Priest who claimed he could invoke Durga's presence through performance of Hindu rituals. The ballad written in a forceful diction using all the poetic devices proves Guru's own divine status and conveys Guru's Mission. The author's motive of ridding the Sikhs of senseless superstitions and Brahminical influence is apparent from his emphasis on Sikh ideology and condemnation of idol worship. The folklorist stance of poetic diction is used to influence Sikh masses which make it a popular reading
