KAUR
Vaisakhi 1699, Guru Gobind Singh made a revolutionary move.
He gave us our royalty.
My brothers were made Singhs, princes in my Father’s Court,
My sisters were elevated high to Kaurs:
Kaur from the Rajasthani Kanwar or Kauwar
Kaur denoting an heir to the throne
Kaur who rises among the Singhs as an equal,
Yet we have let our Pitaa Ji down. 
My sisters have been subjugated and many subjugate themselves.
I see a hierarchy made of women
Based on what they choose to wear on their heads.
Have you forgotten that we are the faith of Sangat?
Opening ourselves up to the entire community,
No matter what their personal practices are?
Have you forgotten that we are the faith of Pangat?
Where prince and pauper sit side by side as equals,
Where there is no low,
Where there is no high, but the Highest One?
Have you forgotten why the Khalsa was sent down?
Have you forgotten our vow to not tolerate subjugation?
Then how can you judge a sister solely on how she looks?
You judge her for her makeup,
But you do not see her love for her Guru.
You judge her for letting down her hair,
But you do not see the hours of seva she has done.
You judge her for not wearing a dastaar,
Yet you yourself have not looked into your own inequities.
Here’s a fact that will shock you:
NO ONE IS PERFECT!!!
We fail, yes, yet we strive.
Sikhi is path, not a destination.
A Kaur does not have one static look, yet she is a testament to a pluralistic yet united group of fierce women:
My sister with her beautiful hair let down is a Kaur,
My sister with her hair in a majestic bun is a Kaur,
My sister with her regal dupatta sitting on her head is a Kaur,
My sister with her rumaal tied proudly is a Kaur,
My sister with her dumalla hailing the Glory of Guru is a Kaur.
I will not stand for anyone who judges a sister due to her looks.
I will not stand for anyone telling her she is not a Kaur.
I will not stand for anyone telling her she cannot be happy with herself.
Being a Kaur is not about the appearance:
It is about declaring self-sovereignty,
It is about self-empowerment,
It is a state of mind.
I will forever stand for my sisters’ right to be exactly who she is on her own terms, and if that makes me a manmukh in your eyes, so be it.
My Guru is too loving and too open for the possibility of His Panth to be so narrow and so close-minded.

KAUR

Vaisakhi 1699, Guru Gobind Singh made a revolutionary move.

He gave us our royalty.

My brothers were made Singhs, princes in my Father’s Court,

My sisters were elevated high to Kaurs:

Kaur from the Rajasthani Kanwar or Kauwar

Kaur denoting an heir to the throne

Kaur who rises among the Singhs as an equal,

Yet we have let our Pitaa Ji down. 

My sisters have been subjugated and many subjugate themselves.

I see a hierarchy made of women

Based on what they choose to wear on their heads.

Have you forgotten that we are the faith of Sangat?

Opening ourselves up to the entire community,

No matter what their personal practices are?

Have you forgotten that we are the faith of Pangat?

Where prince and pauper sit side by side as equals,

Where there is no low,

Where there is no high, but the Highest One?

Have you forgotten why the Khalsa was sent down?

Have you forgotten our vow to not tolerate subjugation?

Then how can you judge a sister solely on how she looks?

You judge her for her makeup,

But you do not see her love for her Guru.

You judge her for letting down her hair,

But you do not see the hours of seva she has done.

You judge her for not wearing a dastaar,

Yet you yourself have not looked into your own inequities.

ਰੈਣਿ ਗਵਾਈ ਸੋਇ ਕੈ ਦਿਵਸੁ ਗਵਾਇਆ ਖਾਇ ॥ ਹੀਰੇ ਜੈਸਾ ਜਨਮੁ ਹੈ ਕਉਡੀ ਬਦਲੇ ਜਾਇ ॥੧॥ The nights are wasted sleeping, and the days are wasted eating. Human life is such a precious jewel, but it is being lost in exchange for a mere shell. || <3

Sorat’h, Ninth Mehl: O dear friend, know this in your mind. The world is entangled in its own pleasures; no one is for anyone else. ||1||Pause|| In good times, many come and sit together, surrounding you on all four sides. But when hard times come, they all leave, and no one comes near you. ||1|| Your wife, whom you love so much, and who has remained ever attached to you, runs away crying, “Ghost! Ghost!”, as soon as the swan-soul leaves this body. ||2|| This is the way they act - those whom we love so much. At the very last moment, O Nanak, no one is any use at all, except the Dear Lord. ||3||12||139||

—Guru Tegh Bahadur Dev Ji Maharaj (via tejmohan)

ਹਮਰੇ ਅਵਗੁਣ ਬਹੁਤੁ ਬਹੁਤੁ ਹੈ ਬਹੁ ਬਾਰ ਬਾਰ ਹਰਿ ਗਣਤ ਨ ਆਵੈ ॥
My demerits are so many and numerous. I have sinned so many times, over and over again. O Lord, they cannot be counted.
ਤੂੰ ਗੁਣਵੰਤਾ ਹਰਿ ਹਰਿ ਦਇਆਲੁ ਹਰਿ ਆਪੇ ਬਖਸਿ ਲੈਹਿ ਹਰਿ ਭਾਵੈ ॥
You, Lord, are the Merciful Treasure of Virtue. When it pleases You, Lord, You forgive me.
ਹਮ ਅਪਰਾਧੀ ਰਾਖੇ ਗੁਰ ਸੰਗਤੀ ਉਪਦੇਸੁ ਦੀਓ ਹਰਿ ਨਾਮੁ ਛਡਾਵੈ ॥੨॥
I am a sinner, saved only by the Company of the Guru. He has bestowed the Teachings of the Lord’s Name, which saves me. ||2||

never-without-waheguru:

SORAT’H, FIFTH MEHL: The Creator has brought utter peace to my home; the fever has left my family. The Perfect Guru has saved us. I sought the Sanctuary of the True Lord. || 1 || The Transcendent Lord Himself has become my Protector. Tranquility, intuitive peace and poise welled up in an instant, and my mind was comforted forever. || Pause || The Lord, Har, Har, gave me the medicine of His Name, which has cured all disease. He extended His Mercy to me, and resolved all these affairs. || 2 || God confirmed His loving nature; He did not take my merits or demerits into account. The Word of the Guru’s Shabad has become manifest, and through it, my honor was totally preserved. || 3 || I speak as You cause me to speak; O Lord and Master, You are the ocean of excellence. Nanak chants the Naam, the Name of the Lord, according to the Teachings of Truth. God preserves the honor of His slaves. || 4 || 6 || 56 ||

Everything worldly is temporary, true wealth such as Naam is forever.
