Sikhi Question & Answer-35

665. What is the code of conduct for the Khalsa ?

Every organization has its code of discipline, vows and signs and so has the Khalsa. Since the code of the Sikhs was prescribed by no less than the Gurus themselves, the Sikhs observe it without any "ifs" or "buts" and take pride in it. The instructions are:

  • 1. The Sikhs will worship only God. They will not set up any idols, gods, goddess or statues for worship nor shall they worship any human being. "Burnt be that tongue which sayeth, God is cast into the womb." (Bhairo M.5)

  • 2. The Sikhs will believe in no other religious book other than the Holy Guru Granth Sahib, although they can study other religious books for acquiring knowledge and for comparative study.

  • 3. The Sikhs will not believe in castes, untouchability, magic, omens, amulets, astrology, Sharadhs, ceremonial hair cutting, fasts, frontal marks, sacred thread, graves and traditional death rites, "Some worship stones and put them on their heads Some suspend Linghams from their necks. Some say God is in the South, Some bow their heads to the West. Some fools worship idols, Others busy themselves with worshipping the dead. The whole world is entangled in false ceremonies, How can they find God's secrets ?" I speak verily, hear me all ye people, They who love God have obtained him." (Akal Ustat 10th Guru)

  • 4. The Khalsa will remain distinct by wearing 5 K's but shall not injure the feelings of others professing different religions. The names Allah and Abhekh are for the same God The same is referred to in the Puranas and the Quran. All human beings have the same form the same constitution

RECOGNISE YE THE WHOLE HUMAN RACE AS ONE  (Guru Gobind Singh)

  • 5. The Khalsa will pray to God before starting any work. This will be over and above his usual prayers

  • "Kita lorye kamm so har pai akhye, karaj de swar satgur sachh sakhye"

  • "When you intend to start work pray to God for success"

  • 6. Although a Sikh may learn as many languages as he likes, he must learn Punjabi and teach his children to learn to read it. "Gurmukhi Akhar jo Hain Bhai, Sikh se seekhe jai" "Gurmukhi script is important my brother, let one Sikh learn it from the other"

  • 7. Every male should add "Singh" after his name and every female Sikh should add "Kaur" after her name. They must never remove hair from any part of their bodies. "So long as Khalsa remains distinct, I shall bestow my blessing on it."

  • 8. Opium, LSD, Tobacco, and all other intoxicants are strictly prohibited to the Sikhs. "By getting intoxicated Nanak, you invite many sins."

  • 9. The Sikh men and women will not make holes in their ears or noses and shall have no connection whatsoever with those who kill their daughters. Sikh women will not observe veil (Parda). "Raho Ra ho re bavrya, Ghungat jin kadhe" "Away away ladies who come to me in veils" (Guru Granth Sahib)

  • 10. A Sikh will live only on honest labour and give generously to the poor and the needy thinking all the time that whatever he gives is given to the Guru. "Work hard and share your earnings Nanak, thus shall you find the way."

  • 11. A Sikh must never steal or gamble and: "Consider another's daughter as his own And another's wife as his mother. Love his wife dearly and sincerely And not covet another's wealth."

  • 12. Except for the Kachha and the turban there is no restriction on the dress of the Sikh's dress should be simple and modest. "Gaudy clothes, beauty and ornaments Thou leavest in the world. What is more important is our good or bad actions For which thou shalt have to be responsible."

  • 13. When a Sikh meets another Sikh he will greet by saying, "Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa, Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh." (The Khalsa belongs to the Lord, all glory to Him). (Adapted from Sikh Rahat Maryada PP 18-20, 11th Edition 1954 Punjabi.)

SOME DONT' S FOR THE SIKHS

The following instructions are given to the initiate at the time of baptism for strict compliance from that very moment :

  • 1. Thou shalt never remove any hair from any part of thy body.

  • 2. Thou shalt not use tobacco or any other intoxicants or inebrients.

  • 3. Thou shalt not eat Halal (meat prepared by ritual slaughter)

  • 4. Thou shalt not commit adultery. "You shall shower all you love on your wedded wife And shall not approach another women even in a dream." (Guru Gobind Singh)

GURUDWARA SHRI DATA BANDI CHHORH SAHIB, is situated in the Distt City Gwalior in Madhya Pradesh (Central India) It is situated on the hill top in the Fort Gwalior. After the news of Martyrdom of SHRI GURU ARJAN DEV JI at Lahore, Baba Budha ji announced SHRI HARGOBIND SAHIB JI as sixth GURU. SHRI GURU HARGOBIND SAHIB JI started raising the army of Saint Soldiers to fight against the cruelty.

GURU SAHIB raised the Lohgarh Fort at Amritsar (Now Known as GURUDWARA SHRI LOHGARH SAHIB). GURU SAHIB also used to provide quick and cheap justice to the people at Akal Takhat Sahib. This led a seriuos concern to Jahangir, who later summoned GURU SAHIB to Delhi. On this GURU SAHIB reached Delhi and the place where he stayed there for few days is called as GURUDWARA SHRI MAJNU KA TILLA SAHIB.

GURU SAHIB met Jahangir several times and were having good understanding with each other. Both of them came to Agra for hunting. GURU SAHIB saved Jahangir and killed Tiger (GURUDWARA SHRI SHER SHIKAR SAHIB, DHOLPUR Rajasthan is situated at this Place). Jahangir fell sick; he called Kazi's and Hakims to consult about his health. But Chandu bribed them and asked the kazi & hakim's to suggest Jahangir that his health will be improved if some holy person will pray for him at Gwalior Fort.

He made it sure that kazi/hakim's sugggest GURU SAHIB's name as a Holy person. Kazi/Hakim's did the same thing and suggested Jahangir to select GURU SAHIB for this task. Jahangir asked GURU SAHIB to stay at Gwalior Fort and pray for him. GURU SAHIB agreed to stay there and moved to Gwalior Fort. GURU SAHIB used to worship at a place called as Thada Sahib and he continued doing this for 2 years and 3 months. GURU SAHIB while staying at Thada Sahib also met 52 Rajput Rulers arrested by Jahangir. They all were tied to diffrent Pillars with chains and were leading miserable life. After daily prayer, GURU SAHIB used to meet the rulers and consoled them that when ever he (GURU SAHIB) will go from the fort he will take all the rulers along with him.

On the other side Jahangir was again sick and his health was declining day by day. Luckily during these days Sain Mian Mir ji was in Agra. Jahangir's wife met Sain ji and asked about Jahangirs health. Sain ji told her that they had taken a holy man to there custody if they will not release them then there whole empire will be distroyed. When Jahangir came to know about this thing he sent orders to release GURU SAHIB. But GURU SAHIB on other hand put a condition that he (GURU SAHIB) will only go from there if all the rulers will be released.

Again Jahangir was in confusion whether to realease all of them or not. So he sent a message that who so ever will hold GURU SAHIB's Palla can leave the fort. (The Rajputs never Hold any ones Palla). Also Jahangir was sure that it will be not possible to hold GURU SAHIB's palla for all the rulers, so only few will be released.

Next morning a miracal happened and all the 52 rulers came out of Fort holding GURU SAHIB's palla and were released; When all of them came out of Fort Gwalior while holding GURU SAHIB's Chola's. From that day onwards GURU SAHIB was also known as Data Bandi Chhorh Sahib.GURUDWARA SHRI DATA BANDI CHHORH SAHIB, is situated in the Distt City Gwalior in Madhya Pradesh (Central India) It is situated on the hill top in the Fort Gwalior.

MIRI : The concept is linked to the traditional power enjoyed by kings and ruler where the might of the military resulted in the power and ability to rule or influence the people.

PIRI : The concept of "Piri" is linked to the power enjoyed by religious leaders, church priests, qazis, pandits, etc. to have power or influence over the devotees by way of "spiritual power" or religious power. The words miri and piri are now frequently used together to give the concept promoted by the sixth Guru.
