Kaurs United Camp 2006
Sri Guru Jee’s writings help us understand the need for Saadh Sangat in the dark age of Kaljug, where the only true support is that of His Name.

Kaurs United sevadaars have a dream to become that Saadh Sangat; the support and strength that many Kaurs are searching for, in order to fully live according to the Gurmat Maryada of Guru Gobind Singh Ji and ascend to becoming the mothers of the future Khalsa.

In the glory of past and present Shaheed Singhs and Singhneea, we hope to strengthen ourselves and others, for not just the betterment of Sikh women, but the betterment of the entire Khalsa Panth, and therefore, the entire world.

Our first camp was graced with some very blessed and pure souls, who were able to contribute to every diwaan, langar, and discussion with all of their knowledge, seva bhaavna (intentions) and experiences. Some highlights from our first camp include the craft gift exchange, late-night simran, amrit vela diwaans, impersonal and personal discussions, the sharing of experiences, pains, and pressures, the divine aura of Guru Nanak Parkash Gurdwara Sahib itself, and the Sangat of so many blooming and blessed daughters of Sri Guru Gobind Singh Ji.

For Kaurs United's 2006 B.C. Camp, there will be a multitude of challenging, exciting, and inspiring activities. Campers will attend focused lectures and discussions, as well as participate in an array of physical activities like archery, Gatka, fun on the beach, and so much more! A fond memory campers from last year have is of the serene morning and evening Darbar sessions, full of Gurbani recitation, Simran, and Kirtan, as well as Katha about Sikh history and Sikh women. Campers will be divided based on age for activities, however most discussions and activities will only be suitable for girls aged 12 and up.

Khalsa Ladies Camp 2006

Heal in the sacred space created by
Sikh sacred music & meditation.
Renew with the powerful techniques of Kundalini Yoga & Martial Arts.
Relax in Mother Nature’s Embrace.

The challenge and delight of a woman’s life is to find her center, to balance herself in the sacred, and in the joys and challenges of life. She is the center of so much, for so many. From her center, love and power, confidence and harmony flower.

Khalsa Ladies Camp is dedicated to this fulfillment. The activities are designed to help the woman nurture and develop the areas of her life which facilitate this process.

The call has come forth for we, as women, to assert our prayerful presence and grace into so many areas of our lives. So many people depend on us in countless ways. In order to be true to ourselves and those whom we love, we need to increase our vitality, and balance our energy. And, most important, we need to develop a relationship with our own soul and the purpose of our lives. This retreat is designed to help one another on this journey.

With a full schedule of the revitalizing practice of Kundalini Yoga, the deeply peaceful sacred space of Sat Nam Rasayan Meditation, the graceful power of Sikh Sacred music, and the exilharating practice of Indian Sword Fighting, we renew ourselves and offer support to one another, make new friends, and connect with old ones. Women of all ages may attend this retreat each year, honouring the wisdom, sacredness, and strength of woman.

A spiritual gathering of Strong Khalsa Women...

Join one of these camps this Summer!

Gursikhi Jeevan Of July 2006, Bibi Sukhdev Kaur
From a very young age Bibi Sukhdev Kaur received encouragement from Bhai Sahib Randheer Singh jee to do path and he himself had her do it for him. Bibi jee would bathe, put on fresh clothes and then commence the path as Bhai Sahib would stand behind her and do Chaur with one hand and put his other hand on her head. Usually, only I, Thakur Singh was the listener.

I learned there that when the beloveds of the Guru give their blessings, consciousness can fly into the heavens. Not only in keertan are the sweet arrows of love released, but even in Gurbani path these arrows are felt and affect not only the soul but even the body.

I remember that I could only listen to this divinely inspired path for a half hour or forty five minutes. I would then request she stop. These days are hard to forget. The entire atmosphere would be perfomed with Keertan and Gurbani path.

Like this, some time passed. Bibi Sukhdev Kaur grew up and a great test came before her. Bibi Ji was engaged to be married to a hopeful suitable family, which was of manmukhs. When talk of her marriage arose, Bibi Sukhdev Kaur told her mother that she would only marry a Gursikh. She could not marry a manmukh. Her entire family was worried, especially her brother who was very hard of nature. When Bibi Sukhdev Kaur’s brother found out what she was saying he told her “This marriage arrangement is already made and furthermore they are our relatives. Think about it. This marriage is going to happen now. And if not, I have an axe and a sword too. We’ll finish you off”

Bibi jee in those days used to meditate on naam with great spiritual ecstasy and in this state, Guru jee gave her faith. She replied to her brother, “Your decision is right in your eyes and my decision is as well eternal. You can do what you want”

The brother drew his sword and despite the protests of their mother, dragged Bibi Sukhdev Kaur into the animals’ yard. He said “Now something is going to happen."

Bibi jee replied, “You are proud of your sword and I am proud of my Guru. Only that will happen which he approves of.”

Seeing her firmness, the brother brought Bibi jee back to her mother and told her to convince her daughter. The mother began to cry and lay down on the bed beside Bibi jee. Bibi jee told us that in this frightening situation, her simran was going with great power and there was no sign of fear within her. Guru jee, the True Lord, appeared in person before her and gave her courage and blessed her with a simarnaa (this simarnaa is still with the Bibi). Then what? Bibi jee became totally ready for anything.

She said: “Brother, you can do what you want to me. My Satguru jee has arrived!”
The brother thought for a moment and then threw down his sword.
He exclaimed, “Fine. You have won and we have lost. Tell us, where shall we marry you?”
Bibi jee replied, “Only Bhai Sahib can tell you that”.

It was her destiny that day I had sent my nephew Dyaal Singh to Bhai Sahib with something to give to him. When Bibi jee told Bhai Sahib what had happened the previous night and how Satuguru jee had himself appeared and protected her, Bhai Sahib became very happy and called for me that very morning.

I arrived at Narnagvaal and he related the entire story to me. I put my head at his feet.

Sanjog (those whom we are to meet) are determined before our birth.

Bibi Sukhdev Kaur was sitting there, and approval was given for marriage to my nephew.

Bibi jee went home and told her family what had happened and when her family found out what an educated and suitable boy had been found, they all went to Bhai Sahib’s house and the ardaas for the engagement was performed. Bhai Sahib was so happy about this. He said to me, “Jogee! This is the blessing of the True Lord! You have preserved our honour. The lord shall bless you immensely.

After this, the marriage took place with great fanfare. Bhai Sahib till the end gave immense love to Bibi Sukhdev Kaur and Bibi ji too lived her entire life according to Gurmat.

Sikhs are forbidden from forcibly marrying off their children without their prior consent. Both Sons and Daughters are required to reach a mature age, both physically and mentally, before they marry. Thus, parents must ensure their children are allowed to grow and be educated to the fullest. Arranged marriages are the norm for people in the Punjabi culture.

Guru Amar Das Ji stated
...They are not called husband and wife who merely sit together. Rather they alone are called husband and wife who have one soul in two bodies...
-Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji, Anng 788
