Letters from Bhai Fauja Singh

M.S.S. Sardarni Premka Kaur Khalsa S.S. Gurubanda Singh Khalsa
M.S.S. Ram Das Singh Khalsa and all others

Dear Sisters and Brothers,

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

We have received your letters with enclosures about S.Bhag Singh, S. Bikram Singh, and Sant Harcharand Singh Longowal. We are happy to note that you are taking great pains in extending the truth over the world. You have written me that I am released on bail and out to serve for awhile; please forget it. I was never in jail. Kindly, ensure in mind that Khalsa is not a body, it is Spirit. He works and vibrates equally in jail and outside. I never felt hampered there. Even the big dacoits in the jail were diverted into Khalsa and they made pledges to serve the Khalsa Panth and those who commit like this are mostly released and this way a stream of good persons from jail to outside is continuing. Don't feel that I will go again in the jail. I was never in the jail and will be never in the jail. I am always in the jail of my dear father Sri Guru Gobind Singh Ji Maharaj. If He wills no force can stop the function of the Khalsa.

Secondly I want to assure you that don't feel that you are segregated or may be segregated from Khalsa Panth. You are a part of Khalsa Panth, Hari Mandir Sahib and Sri Akal Takhat Sahib. You have been accepted by the Guru and no force can take you away from the Guru.

Guru is great, seek help from Him. It is written in the Holy Granth that to seek any help from others is not the way of Khalsa. Khalsa always looks for heaven and heaven is the pool for all energy to Khalsa. This energy has always been coming to Khalsa for cen­turies and this flow will continue in future. Khalsa never means any conclusion. Khalsa's gait is like an elephant. A large number of dogs bark at him, but he always goes his way undaunted and never hints any attack to them because he feels that they can do nothing to him. Khalsa means a figure of complete confidence and this can never be shattered.

I request you simply to become Khalsa in pure sense. There is written in Gurbani that large forces of the proud kings can be dashed and finished very shortly by the small­est creatures provided they are blessed by the God and Guru. You simply bother for blessings from Guru and remain very peaceful, God will do all things in your favour. Khalsa knows no defeat. But this stage comes when he wants to happily sacrifice his life. A fully dedicated person will do such things in the world that it will be difficult for the generations to believe. It is difficult to believe that a young man of 25 years can live alive for 21 days without skull. It is also difficult to believe that a person can fight without head. We need not bother much about the organization we are already very much organized as a part of the army of Akal Purkh. Our eyes are always towards the sky and we are receiving all help at all wanted times in much more amounts than expected. So we are feeling that same will continue in future also.

The jail was a place which Bhai Fauja Singh utilized for strengthening his Sadhana, for perfecting his meditation, and for ex­periencing his Guru preparing him for the next challenge on the path of Dharma. During the visit to the prison, Bhai Fauja Singh is photographed with his devoted wife, S. Amarjit Kaur.

I am devoting much of my time in meditation and I am feeling and experiencing a big wonder that the needed organization and all other needed items are coming in the rush around me ... And I am very much sure that the power, organizations, money, command, authority are in the NAM. If we will bear NAM in our heart all these things will come to you and you may use these above points to spread your ego and personality in the world, or you may use all these powers to benefit the earth. Those who will use these powers for personal ends these powers will prove disastrous to them and they will become the 'RAKSHAWA' (GUNDAS i.e. murdering thieves) and those who use for development of Khalsa these powers will become the saints and stars of the earth. So don't worry they are making their way to hell; you make your way to heaven. If they don't become gundas who will call you saints? If they don't become bad who will call you good? You are very lucky to become a good and saint. Saints through all the ages have been defended by the heaven.

Is it in your knowledge in any way that the Guru had any news agencies or press reporters? The whole of the Mugal empires spread over 3 thousand miles kept on a war against the Guru and Khalsa. The Khalsa always kept silent but their personality and spiri­tuality attracted a certain number of headless people. This number at a time reduced to 20 thousand living in jungles and from that number they multiplied by giving tough defeats to the states and capitals of India and also to the invaders of India.

As long as the Sikhs stuck to the instructions of the Guru about spirit, mind, body, they did not see the face of defeats, but when they left the way of Guru, they saw bad waters and again after realizing the real trouble about forgetting the way of Guru, they practiced the teachings of the Guru and became strong enough to survive as a com­plete nation. So I stress the point to live a Khalsa life full of love of God.

I may humbly inform you that God is very much fed up with the Gurudom personality cult systems. Now he wants direct continuous and affectionate prayers of the human beings. Resultantly I request that Nam is the key of all organization. I want to write one story about the 10th master. When in his last war he was stopped by Sarsa Nai (river) there was a bloody battle on the bank of this river. Early in the morning Guru ordered to start the morning prayers and ordered a portion of Sikhs to con­tinue the defense.

Such a risk proves that our Guru came on this earth to give Nam to the poor and needy persons of this country. It is not that he was against the organization, his forces were the result of the organization, but this organization was made by the will of God. So, the fundamental point is to absorb Nam 24 hours. This Nam into the hearts of the brave persons will create a large number of saint soldiers which is the personal job of the Almighty.

In the end I may assure you that with the Grace of God we will sacrifice our lives for this cause. Every drop of our blood will be shed before you are segregated from the Khalsa Panth. We will bear all troubles very happily and calmly before any harm comes to you in India.

Next you have written about the removal of patits' from the Takhats. But at this time there are mainly patits on the Takhats. Sure a time will come that these Takhats will be cleared from the patits but such clarities need pure blood to wash. We are preparing the nations just in the tone of NAM; very peacefully in all rush, and very slowly in all hurry, and affectionately in all oppositions. We are doing in undoing, we are running in rest and organizing in all weaknesses of the nation.

It is all in the hands of Guru about the place where He keeps us but at this stage we are not intending to come to America. We have got full confidence in your mission there. May God help you to progress there.

Kindly send copies of this letter to S. Nirinjan Kaur, Soorya Kaur, Bhagwati Kaur, Hari Krishan Kaur Swami Singh. Our Gur Fateh to Bibiji and Bhai Sahib Siri Singh Sahib Harbhajan Singh Khalsa Yogiji. My dear brothers Gurubanda Singh and Ram Das Singh who has written me letters, please send copies to them also.

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

Fauja Singh/Amarjit Kaur
