Then Roshan Singh from among Guru Gobind Singh`s followers came forward holding a sword and a shield of animal hide. As the lion came charging at him, Roshan Singh, says Kuir Singh, knelt down and took the animal`s paws on his shield, slashing its belly with a swift stroke of his sword. Everyone applauded Roshan Singh`s feat. The Guru rewarded him with his blessing, for he would not accept any worldly prize.
