Letters from Bhai Fauja Singh


Our dear daughter Soorya Kaur Ji,

Wahe Guru Ji Ka Khalsa, Wahe Guru Ji Ki Fateh!

We are four Khalsas in this jail, from Khalsa farm (the name of our farm is Khalsa farm). All are happy according to sweet will of God. We have been involved by the police in one murder case. The whole story you will come to know when you come to India. The previous case of Amritsar is yet unsettled and a new one has started. We are very happy and in Chardi Kala. Your mummy is also in Chardi Kala. All the cases will be settled by our clouds. Clouds can never permanently surround the moon. God has given us ample time to improve ourselves in this jail.

Time is precious. I also request you to forget every­thing of this world and enlighten your soul in such a way that you are imbued in Nam.

Before the creation of the earth there was darkness everywhere. Ultimately light from God came to light the darkness. Similarly our body is like darkness and to enlighten it there is a need of light from God. This light is actual light and not merely a light of good thoughts. This light is the beginning of our journey to the Infinite. So always seek to be absorbed in the Eternal and Infinite.

We want direct friendship with Yogiji so that we may be helpful to each other for a common cause of truth. I hope you will provide a link between us. I will be hoping for a letter from him and a meeting when he comes to India. I am a very liberal man and agree with him nearly in all the steps taken by him to improve the spiritual status of the world. I realize that he is a great man and he has done the biggest work in this century. A large number of pages in Khalsa history have come to this earth in this age, but he has drawn a fairly marked big line. When he writes me I will send some suggestions for a healthy collective spiritual future of Khalsa.

Your Daddy,

Hawalati Judicial CustodyDist. Jail Gurdaspur

In 1975, Bhai Fauja Singh was photographed while sharing inspiring words on the life of Guru Gobind Singh with American Sikh brothers and sisters.

"It is not that these martyrs have died. Actually, it is that WORK HAS BEGUN NOW. Not only has this thing happened in Amritsar, but in New York today, people pretendingly wearing the bana of the Khalsa, tried to pass a resolution that the Khalsa in the Western World are not even Sikhs! So, don't live in any misunderstanding. It is God's will and it is Guru's task. Work has begun now. The history of the Khalsa is before you. Alert yourself and stop flirting yourself. Time has come to repeat every page of the history; you sing a song of the Khalsa, and in India they have proved it. They 'died before they fell'. When 'things were down and darkest,' they 'walked tallest'- by Siri Singh Sahib Harbhajan Singh Khalsa Yogiji
