Dedicated to Dhan Dhan Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji

"From woman, man is born; within woman, man is conceived; to woman he is engaged and married. Woman becomes his friend; through woman, the future generations come. When his woman dies, he seeks another woman; to woman he is bound. So why call her bad? From her, kings are born. From woman, woman is born; without woman, there would be no one at all. O Nanak, only the True Lord is without a woman. That mouth which praises the Lord continually is blessed and beautiful. O Nanak, those faces shall be radiant in the Court of the True Lord."
- Guru Nanak Dev Ji in Raag Aasaa on Pannaa 473

2. Mata Khivi Ji

"...She took upon herself the onerous task of managing every detail of the langar..." Mata Khivi ji did much more than work in the kitchen. She created a loving atmosphere for all whom she came in contact with. She and Guru Angad Sahib Ji were very fond of their children. They lavished their love and affection on not only their own, but on any child in the community. Their commitment was so strong that it gave a beautiful example to all who witnessed it.

3.Mata Gujjar Kaur Ji: The Consciousness of the Guru

Mata ji was brought up with the consciousness of the Guru’s light; she fulfilled her parent’s aspiration of serving the path of the Guru beyond their expectations by growing into a perfect role model of grace, strength, persistence and sacrifice.

Khalsa Singhniaa in Gatka Akhara

The battle-drum beats in the sky of the mind; aim is taken, and the wound is inflicted.
The Spiritual Warriors enter the field of battle; now is the time to fight!
He alone is known as a Spritual Hero, who fights in defense of Religion.
He may be cut apart, piece by piece, but never leaves the field of battle.

5. Mother of Khalsa: Mata Sahib Kaur Ji

In Sikh history Mata Sahib Kaur is known as the Mother of the Khalsa. This honour was bestowed upon her by the Tenth Nanak, Guru Gobind Singh Ji. When a Sikh receives the gift of Khande Dee Pauhul (Amrit), he/she is told that from today onward your father is Guru Gobind Singh Ji and you mother is Mata Sahib Kaur Ji.

6. Children of Waheguru

"...Bibi Pritam Kaur and her two younger children helped the defence by refilling the ammunition for the guns, and brought in food and water for the defenders..."

7. I, not a woman, by his side ,I, a warrior, ready to die… (Poem)

Guru Gobind Singh, great King, on high,
Your humble servant, Mai Bhago, am I
Guru Gobind Singh, great King, on high,
Your Humble Servant, Mai Bhago, am I.

8. Importance of Kaur

Have you ever thought why Guru Ji, Guru Gobind Singh, gave the name Kaur to Sikhs, more specifically to Sikh women? Why did he not accept the status quo and keep the tradition of the woman's surname being determined by her family's name? What was Guru Ji trying to achieve by calling the Sikh woman "A Prince" (literal meaning of Kaur)?

9. In Memory of Chali Mukte

Forty (chali) liberated ones (mukte), is how a band of 40 brave Sikhs who laid down their lives fighting near the dhab or lake of Khidrana, also called Isharsar, on 29 December 1705 against a Mughal force in chase of Sri Guru Gobind Sahib Singh Ji are remembered in Sikh history and daily in the Sikh ardas or supplicatory prayer offered individually or at gatherings at the end of all religious services.

10. Bibi Harsharan Kaur:The Final Shaheed of the Chamkaur Battle

Sikh women are always known to have responded to the call of their duty. They have not allowed hardships and dangers to stand in the way of the performance of their moral obligations. Bibi Harsarn Kaur was one of these women who faced the odds to fulfill her obligations.
