|With the distinct Khalsa identity and consciousness of purity, Guru Gobind Singh gave all Sikhs the opportunity to live lives of courage, sacrifice and equality.|
On this festival of Baisakhi, may the Guru bless you to practice His teachings!
|The constitution of the Panj Pyaare during Baiskahi of 1699 was Guru Gobind Singh's dream to eliminate the anomalies caused by the caste system. As a result, among the original Panj Pyare, there was:|
One Khatri, shopkeeper;
One Jat, farmer;
One Chhimba, calico printer/tailor;
One Ghumar, water-carrier; and
One Nai, a barber.
Let's reiterate to follow the principle of equality advocated by our Guru, during the pious occasion of Baisakhi!
|On the day of Baisakhi in the year 1699, Guru Gobind Singh offered 5 emblems of purity and courage known as Five Ks:|
Kesh - the unshorn hair
Kangha - the wooden comb
Kara - the iron (or steel) bracelet
Kirpan - the sword and
Kashara - the underwear.
By being identifiable, no Sikh could never hide behind cowardice again.
May the Guru give you courage and strength to fight the evil and stand always by truth!
|May the enlighter of the world, the divine Guru bless you with comfort and happiness. And may He bestow upon you a life that is happy in each and every way!|
|On this joyous occasion, may Waheguru accept your good deeds and reward your actions by filling your life with all the bounties of nature!|
|Tikhi Talwaar Ne Sanu Janam Dita;|
Gurti Mile Hai Khande Di Dhaar Vichon;
Sikhi Sidak Te Sir Dastar Sohni;
Sada Vakhra Hi Roop Sansar Vichon!
Aap De Saare Parivaar Nu Baisakhi Dian Buhut Mubarakan!
|Khalsa Mero Roop Hai Khas;|
Khalse Main Haun Karaun Niwas;
Khalsa Mero Mukh Hai Anga;
Khalse Ke Haun Sadha Sadha Sanga!
Warm wishes on the auspicious day of the birth of Khalsa!
|Hope this harvest season brings you bountiful crops resulting in endless joy and happiness!|
Warm wishes on the festival of Baisakhi!
|Nachle Gaale Hamaare Saath;|
Ayi Hai Baisakhi Khushiyon Ke Saath;
Masti Mein Jhoom Aur Kheer-Puri Kha;
Aur Na Kar Tu Duniya Ki Parwa!
