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

Mata Ganga Ji was the wife of Sri Guru Arjan Dev, and Mother of Sri Guru HarGobind ji. She had her only son that too, after a long time into her marriage. Mata Ganga Ji (Guru Ji's wife) once expressed a wish to be blessed with a son.

Guru Arjan Dev ji said to her "Ask not me but a pious Sikh like Baba Buddha Ji".

Mata Ji went to see Baba Ji taking with her many richly prepared dishes. Baba Ji was not happy, "I am but a grass cutter of the House of Guru Nanak how can I grant you what you wish?" Mata Ji returned home and told Guru ji what had happened.

Guru Ji said "Mata Ji do as I say, prepare a simple meal. Make missi roti (bread made of wheat and lentils) with your own hands and take some onions and lassi (butter milk) and walk with humility in your heart. Mata Ji did as she was asked. She humbly presented the food, Baba Ji was pleased. As he ate he blessed Mata Ji

"O mother, thy son will be the king of kings, he will rule the hearts of his people" As he crushed an onion in his hand Baba ji said " and he will crush the heads of evil rulers".

Although Mata Ji only received the blessings to live a life of humility and humbleness, soon, she was blessed with her only son, who was named HarGobind. Sri Guru HarGobind Ji became the sixth Guru of the Sikhs.

At the birth of his Son, Guru Ji uttered the following Sabad:

"The True Guru sent me a son;
A long-lived son hath been born by destiny.
When he took his dwelling in the womb,
His mother's heart was exceedingly glad.
The destiny recorded in the beginning hath become manifest to all.
By God's order the boy hath been born in the tenth month.
(Asa Mohalla 5, Ang-396)
