Dhan Dhan Guru De Pyarai Daughter of Sri Guru Gobind Sahib Ji Daughter of Mata Sahib Kaur Ji Fearless Warriors Courageous Mothers Determined Daughters They suffered great in-humane tortures Watch their children bleed to death Witnessed the brutal murder of their husbands Yet, they fought for freedom and faith Remembered Guru Ji in every breath And were an Inspiration to all Sikhs We are a Kaur Princess We are a Brave Lioness We are the Daughters of the Khalsa

Birth of the Khalsa



Sri Guru Gobind Singh Ji, proclaimed, from that today forward, the Sikh nation shall be called the Khalsa. Charnpahul will give place to Khande Da Amrit the nectar of two –edged sword. The person desiring to become a Sikh, to become a member of the Khalsa brotherhood, will drink water that has been stirred with a Khanda or two –edged sword. This water shall be called Amrit (nectar). I shall presently let you see how Amrit is to be administered.

Those who partake of this Amrit will be changed from Jackals to LIONS, form sparrows to HAWKS. They will be called SINGHS or KAURS. All castes, all people, are equally welcome to take the Amrit. I mean to make all Sikhs give up and forget for ever their previous caste. I want to combine them all into one Brotherhood, the KHALSA.


...The Khalsa will be equally in all respects, the lowest with the highest, males with females, and children with adults...


Through this blessing of Amrit, Sri Guru Gobind Singh Ji poured his life into his Sikhs and invested them with his own personality. They came to be looked up as models of physical power and beauty, and stateliness of character. The whole tone of national character was immensely changed. Sweepers, barbers, water-carriers, washermen, and confectioners who had never touched a sword or shouldered a gun, who had for countless generations, lived as slaves of the so-called higher classes, were under the Guru Ji’s lead, they were reborn into brave warriors, ready to rush into the jaws of death at the bidding of their Guru, and leaders of armies before whom the Rajas and the Nawabs trembled with terror and dared not raise their heads.

Thus was born the Khalsa—a nation of Saint Soldiers reciting only Naam of One God. Friends and servants of man, and sworn foes of all tyrants, a Brotherhood in which all were to be equal in all respects, and in which all castes were united to form one nation – the KHALSA. The Khalsa was Sri Guru Gobind Singh Ji’s type of universal man of God –


BRAVE

FEARLESS

STRONG AS A LION

SWEET HUMBLE

LOVING AS A WOMAN

HOLY AND PIOUS AS A SAINT

BROTHER OF ALL

STRIKING FEAR IN NONE

AFRAID OF NONE


He who keeps alight the unquenchable torch of truth and never swerves from the thought of one God; he who has full love and confidence of one God and does not put his faith, even by mistake, in fasting or worshipping tombs, cemeteries, cremation grounds or monasteries; he only recognizes one God and makes no fetish of pilgrimages, alms, penances or austerities; and in whose heart and soul the light of the Perfect One shines froth, he is to be recognized as a true member of the KHALSA



Be part of the ARMY OF GOD – Take AMRIT – you will be glad you did!
