Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa

Waheguru Ji Ke Fateh

Khalsa is not bounded by land or physical boundaries. The very word "Khalistan" goes counter to Sikhi. It is another story that we as Sikh may feel the need for a sovereign land but that does not mean we should start twisting Sikhi to fit our needs.

A comment of the following sentence,

"Raj Bina Naheen Dharam Chale Hai

Dharam Bina Sab Daley Maley Hai."

In Sikhi, Dharam comes first. Dharam (disciple) of both outside and within is the one of the first Khands Guru Nanak ji talks about in Guru Granth Sahib. Thus for me the above statement makes no sense. Nothing can surivie without the disciple.

As a Sikh, this would make more sense to me,

"Dharam Bina Na Raj Chale Hai

Raj Bina Sab Daley Maley Hai."

The raj would not necessarily mean the rule of a land. It may mean,

jin gur parsaadee man jeeti-aa jag tineh jitaanaa. (1089)

Those who conquer their own minds, by Guru`s Grace, conquer the world.

man jeetay jag jeeti-aa jaaN tay bikhi-aa tay ho-ay udaas. (1103)

Conquering the mind, one conquers the world, and then remains detached from corruption.

The freedom, the sovereignity our Guru has given us extends far beyond the political freedom of expression.

One thing we should always remember,

bin gur panth na soojh-ee kit biDh nirabahee-ai. (229)

Without the Guru, the Path cannot be seen. How can anyone proceed?

Panth is the Path! Guru Panth! Guru's Path! The Path cannot lead the Guru for it is lead by the Guru, and it exist only because of the Guru for it itself is the Guru's Path.

In my personal opinion, there is no concept of National Pride in Sikhi. I as a Sikh cannot be proud of the country I live in. The only law I should follow is the Law of Waheguru and rest of all the consituations of this world and laws should be filtered from the Law of Waheguru. This is true freedom! Waheguru's law is the law of humility, wisdom, equality, forgiveness,... Guru Granth Sahib is the example of total freedom.

First know what freedom is - then acheive it. A strong tree needs strong roots. Only a mature tree can grow fruits.
