Waheguru ji ka Khalsa, Waheguru ji ki Fateh!

On the anniversary of the martyrdom of the Chhote Sahibzade, Baba Zorawar Singh Ji and Baba Fateh Singh Ji are symbols of unyielding faith. They are a celebration of courage and perseverance, which continues to resonate deeply today.

The youngest sons of Guru Gobind Singh Ji were just 9 and 6 years old when they faced a harrowing ordeal with a bravery that belies their young age.

In 1705, Baba Zorawar Singh Ji and Baba Fateh Singh Ji were bricked alive by the Mughal ruler of Sirhind for their refusal to abandon their Sikh faith for Islam.

Today we remember their martyrdom, which stands as a testament to the depth of their conviction and the strength of their spirit. It reminds us that we are free to practice our faith no matter who disagrees; and it reminds us of the strength of Guru Gobind Singh ji who said:

ਇਨ ਪੁਤਰਨ ਕੇ ਸੀਸ ਪਰ ਵਾਰ ਦੀਏ ਸੁਤ ਚਾਰ, ਚਾਰ ਮੂਏ ਤੋ ਕਿਆ ਹੂਆ ਜੀਵਤ ਕਈ ਹਜਾਰ

'In putran ke sees par, vaar diye sut chaar,

Chaar mooye to kiya hua, jevaat kayi hazaar.'

"I have sacrificed my four sons. So what if my four sons are dead, when thousands are alive,"

He then proudly declared that the whole Khalsa Panth were his children


Happy Bandi Chhor Divas!
Happy Diwali!
At this precious time of year, we celebrate the light that shines from our faith in God and Guru, our kindness to others, and our ability to embrace fearlessness in the face of global change.

May the light of this celebration be instilled in you, your loved ones and community! We pray for peace in ourselves, in our countries and in our world. Many blessings to you and your family!!


Wahe Guru ji ka Khalsa, Wahe Guru ji ki Fateh!
ਵਾਹਿਗੁਰੂ ਜੀ ਕਾ ਖ਼ਾਲਸਾ, ਵਾਹਿਗੁਰੂ ਜੀ ਕੀ ਫ਼ਤਿਹ॥

The birth of Guru Ram Das Ji was a very auspicious moment. An impoverished orphan from the tender age of seven, Jetha (as he was called) lived with his elderly grandmother. History tells us that he did not succumb to a feeling of impoverishment despite his circumstances. A “chance” meeting with Guru Amar Das Ji at the age of 12 was a turning point and visibly transformed his life - and the trajectory of Sikh history.

Jetha became an integral part of Guru Amar Das's family, serving in many difference capacities: helping in the langar kitchen and assisting with different construction projects. In time, he married Bibi Bhani, one of Guru Amar Das's daughters. Jetha was eventually appointed as Guru Amar Das's successor over Guru Amar Das's own two sons, because of his exceptional service, selfless devotion, and unwavering obedience. Guru Amar Das renamed him Ram Das, meaning "servant of God,"

The life of Guru Ram Das ji reminds us that, in the Guru's court, anything is possible. The lowest orphan can attain the highest spiritual realization through service, meditation and Guru's grace. Guru Ram Das sits on the Throne of Raj Yog and his story offers hope and possibility to all people.

Guru Ram Das ji has left an everlasting mark on Sikh history and culture, highlighting the significance of service and compassion. His contributions to Sikhi range from strengthening the fabric of the Sikh community by setting the groundwork of Amritsar, to writing the sacred verses used in our Sikh marriages.

As we celebrate Guru Ram Das Ji's birthday, we are reminded of the eternal connection between the Guru and his followers. His Banis hold profound healing and this healing wisdom is sought by many, when they are ill, seeking guidance or when they wish to send blessings to others
