Shaheedi Samagam December 18th to December 28th 2022

Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh

Sangat Ji,

From December 18th to December 28th we will pay tribute to all our Shaheeds.  These are events that changed the history of India and tested the strength, bravery and the will of the Khalsa Panth!  Parnaam Shaheeda Nu ! Waheguru Ji.

Shaheeds are those who have selflessly sacrificed their lives, homes, families, everything they had, for the lives and livelihood of the community, country or world.

Sarbans Dani Guru Gobind Singh Ji resonates this after the sacrifice of his family – Mata Gujri Ji and Chaar Sahibzaade

“In Putran Ke Sees Par Vaar Diye Sut Chaar, Chaar Muye To Kya Hua Jeevat Kayi Hazaar”

( I have sacrificed my four sons. So what if my four sons had to give up their lives,  thousands live on )

But, we must ask the question then, why do we lack passion to show up for Shaheedi Samagam events?
Have we forgotten how Shaheeds lived their lives?

Just ponder for a few moments:

1. How, that one last time,  Mata Gujar Kaur ji dressed her beloved  6-9 year grandsons, Baba Zorawar Singh ji and Baba Fateh Singh Ji, and wrapped the dastars on their heads, placed the kalgis on their foreheads and engrained the Gurbani’s power into their souls. She empowered them with the history of their elder Shaheeds and sent them off in chardi kala to face their inevitable death.

2.  How the Sahibzaade turned down all the lavish gifts and faced the evil rulers all alone.
They did not give up their faith nor will.
They did not fear death.
They changed the course of history.
They were sealed alive amongst bricks and mortar till they suffocated.

They stood up for freedom, diversity of faith, equality and inclusion, the things we routinely take for granted.

If we care, then we must share their stores and make an effort to join the Shaheedi week programs.  This is the real tribute for our Shaheeds and the true gift for ourselves, our children and generations to come.  

We should be grateful and extremely proud of our Shaheeds!

Parnaam Shaheedan Nu!
