VAISAKHI Khalsa Panth 1699-2003

THERE IS ONE GOD,

ENTERNAL TRUTH IS HIS NAME,

MAKER OF ALL THINGS,

FEARING NOTHING AND AT ENMITY WITH NOTHING,

TIMELESS IS HIS IMAGE, NOT BEGOTTEN, BUT BEING OF HIS OWN BEING,

BY THE GRACE OF THE GURU, MADE KNOW TO MEN.

The Sikhs believe in one God. The Sikh religion has rejected casteism. The Sikh religion is common, simple, easy, high and pure way of life. QUINTESSENCE OF SIKHISM: Sikhism exhorts the people to become serviceable transcendental meditation, honest, generous, charitable, self effacing, helpful to destitute advice to give ups and downs of life cheerfully.

Sikhism advises to give up superstitions, belief in omens and rituals. The Sikhs imbibe humbleness and sweetness. The Sikhs become veritable saints and saviours of weak, poor, needy and the destitute, oppressed and exploited brethren.

VAISAKHI

Vaisakhi is the birthday of the Khalsa (The Pure Ones). Guru Gobind Singh jee, the tenth Guru, founded the Khalsa Brotherhood with baptism of steel on 30th March 1699. He gave a call for the devoted Sikhs who would be prepared to die for the faith. Five Sikhs answered his call and they were baptised by him with Amrit (water of immortality). They were ordered to keep the five articles of faith-unshorn hair, drawers, comb, wrist band and kirpan (sword). They took five vows and pledged to desisit from four misdemeanours. On this day, a one-day celebration is held in Gurdwara with kirtan, Katha, Lectures, Karah Parsad and langar. In addition, the Amrit ceremony is held and Amrit (nectar) is given to those who offer themselves for Sikh initiation. The Sikhs after taking Amirt are called KHALSA. They are presented on the stage and greeted by the congregation. The Amrit (baptism) ceremony can be held at any other time as well. Vaisakhi is celebrated on 14th April every year.

KHALSA

(Arabic, ‘Khalis’, ‘pure’). Body of initiated Sikhs; The term means denoted land in the Mughal emperor’s direct possession, as opposed to lands owned by his lords. So, even before the time of Guru Gobind Singh jee, Khalsa could refer to groups of Sikhs whose loyalty was to the Guru rather than to his massands. However, the Khalsa was instituted by Guru Gobind Singh jee on Vaisakhi (30 March) 1699 CE, when the Guru administered Khande-di-Pahul to the Panj-Pyare, followed by thousands more. He than enunciated a code of disceipline (rehat) to which all khalsa Sikhs must adhere. The Khalsa was to be a casteless body of Singhs and Kaurs, outwardly distinguished by the five K’s.

Khalsa Sikhs must be brave in battle and protect the needy. The must not commit adultery and must observe rules akin to those currently set down in the REHAT MARYADA. Khalsa Sikhs must rise early, bathe, read the prescribed hymns of the Guru’s (Nitnem) and meditate on the Nam (name) of the one God. Guru Gobind Singh jee declared that all who in future accepted this God-given form of initiation would be know as KHALSA.

VAISAKHI

Revelation of the Khalsa

For Sikhs Vaisakhi is important as on this day the tenth Guru Nanak, Guru Gobind Singh Jee, revealed to the World the KHALSA. The Khalsa (from the Persian/Arabic Khalisah meaning the Pure) is the name given to the collective body of Sikhs who have been initiated into Sikhism by the KHANDE-DI-PAHUL ceremony (initiation by the Double Edged Sword).

Some people these days think Vaisakhi only for dancing and Songs nothing else. Sorry if I said something wrong!!!!
