Warriors of Faith

Kalgiyan wale Pita

From the beginning of time till end of time, in the entire creation, there was not and would never be a Soul as holy, as pious, as Great, as Guru Gobind Singh ji Maharaj.

Millions are born and million die everyday, but no one felt pain of humanity as his own, like Guru Gobind Singh ji did.
Guru Gobind Singh was the The Saint-Poet. When he sat to sing the divine songs of Akaal Purakh Waheguru, marvels like Jaap Sahib, Akaal Ustat and Mittar Piaare nu descended on this planet through Guru’s holy words, which filled hearts of his Sikhs with Love for Creator Lord, dispelled darkness of Ignorance from minds of his Sikhs and woke them up in divine consciousness.
When he sang the ‘Ballad of War and Weapons’ as The Warrior -Poet, epics like Chandi di Vaar, Chandi Charittar and Krishnavtar were created, which had the power to remove fear of Death from minds of Humans and transform slaves and cowards into fearless Warriors.

Guru Gobind Singh was a warrior, who was invincible. There is no power in entire creation which had ability to subdue him or make him give up. He taught us how to live with Honour and Pride, he taught us how to stand up and fight for our rights. He taught us how to never budge from our beliefs and ideals. He showed us the way, way to immortality and infinity.
He didn’t concede his ground; he didn’t sign treaties with those who were oppressors, who killed innocents, he didn’t give up his stand even in hardest of times.

  For others he gave up his Father, his mother, his brothers, his beloved Sons and then himself, but never asked anything in return from us.
ਦੀਵੇ ਲਖਾਂ ਜਗਨ ਜਹਾਨ ਉੱਤੇ , ਤੇ ਦੀਵੇ ਖੂਨ ਦੇ ਜਗਾਵੇ ਕੋਈ ਕੋਈ
ਖੁਸ਼ੀਆਂ ਲਖਾਂ ਹੀ ਆਉਣ ਜਹਾਨ ਉੱਤੇ, ਪੁੱਤ ਮਰਵਾ ਕੇ ਖੁਸ਼ੀ ਮਨਾਵੇ ਕੋਈ ਕੋਈ

When he was surrounded by Million strong enemy forces, there were no signs of fear or worry on his face, instead his face glowed like Sun, and The True Master took out his sword, held it with both hands and asked the Supreme Mother, Waheguru for boon of Death or Victory.
No one could have made him suffer, but he suffered for us. Who had the power to kill his Sons or his mother? No one…but he chose to suffer, sacrificed his Sons, his mother and his City of Bliss….to teach us, to teach us how to sacrifice our self on altar of Truth and Faith, on Altar of Love.
ਤੈਨੂੰ ਖੰਡੇ ਤੇ ਭਾਲੇ ਦੀ ਲੋੜ ਕੀ ਸੀ , ਕੀ ਵਿਗਾੜਨਾ ਸੀ ਸਿਤਮਗਾਰ ਤੇਰਾ
ਫੜਕੇ ਜ਼ਮੀਨ ਅਸਮਾਨ ੳਲਟਾ ਦਿੰਦੋ, ਇਕੋ ਕਾਫੀ ਸੀ ਨੈਣਾਂ ਦਾ ਵਾਰ ਤੇਰਾ

There is so much we can learn from his life, his every word; every deed is like an inspiration for us. They hold light for us, which lights up our path, our path to victory and glory, our path to immortality and infinity. But one thing which we see in his every word, his every action is – Love.

Guru Gobind Singh ji was epitome of Love. He sacrificed his family for us, why? He lied on bed of thorns and stones for us, why? Because he loved us, and He still loves us. He was Manifestation of Love, the Love which Waheguru Akaal Purakh had for his creation, that Love took form of Guru Gobind Singh ji and came on this planet, showed us path of Truth and Salvation, path of eternal bliss and immortality. There are no words in this entire creation which are enough to praise Holy Father Guru Gobind Singh ji. No title is good enough to respect him with; no praise is as high to meet his grandeur.

Maybe, we don’t have him physically around us today, but fragrance of his Love is still around. Guru Gobind Singh ji Maharaj is always around his Sikh, in form of his Love, in form of his Baani, in form of our breath. A Sikh need not do much to feel his presence, just need to close his eyes, fill his heart with Love and say ‘Dhan Pita Guru Gobind Singh ji’ and we will feel him, his mercy, his compassion. A Sikh can go anywhere, but everywhere he goes, Guru Gobind Singh stands with him.

Wherever a Sikh goes, whatever a Sikh does, Beloved Father stands there with us and looks at us with his loving glance. Guru Gobind Singh ji knows what’s there in our heart, as he lives deep within our own self, as our Aatma, as our Conscience, as our reason of existence.

                          Feel his Love, Feel him and say,

                  Dhan Dhan Pita Guru Gobind Singh ji Maharaj.

ਅਸਾਂ ਸਖੀ ਸਯਾਦ ਵੀ ਬਹੁਤ ਡਿਠੇ, ਸੁਨੀ ਕਥਾ ਵੀ ਰਾਜਿਆ ਰਾਨੀਆ ਦੀ

ਤਨ ਦੇਣ ਵਾਲੇ , ਮਨ ਦੇਣ ਵਾਲੇ, ਧਨ ਦੇਣ ਵਾਲੇ ਬ੍ਰਹਮਗਿਆਨੀਆ  ਦੀ
ਦਿੱਤਾ ਜਾਣਦੇ ਸਬ ਕਰਤਾਰ ਦਾ ਜੋ, ਅਸਾਂ ਦ੍ਰਿਸ਼ਟ ਵੇਖੀ ਕਈਆਂ ਦਾਨੀਆ ਦੀ
ਕਲਗੀ ਵਾਲੜੇ ਗੁਰਾਂ ਦਾ ਨਾਮ ਲਿਆ , ਹਦ ਮੁੱਕ ਜਾਂਦੀ ਕੁਰਬਾਨੀਆ ਦੀ

Sri Akaal ji Sahai
