Secret of Sikh greeting – Waheguru ji ka Khalsa Waheguru ji ki fateh

Daman Welcome ji (3)

In fact when i see the anti Dasam Granth lobbiests who demand only documented evidences but use this greeting also without having knowledge on source of this greeting. I better decided to share it with you. This is also recorded by those writers who contributed in giving references of baani of Dasam granth in their writings. Here they do not find any answer to criticize Dasam Granth. So Khalsa ji know this secret also. The Khalsa is Akal ki fauj – God’s own army created to fulfil the divinely ordained mission of Gurus – ‘Dharam chalavan, sant ubaran, dust sabhan ko mul uparan’ (to uphold dharma, protect the saintly and uproot the wicked). ‘Wahe Guruji ka Khalsa; Wahe Guruji ki Fateh’ – ‘Hail the Khalsa who belongs to the Lord; Hail the Lord to whom belongs victory.’ Sri Guru Gobind Singh Ji, once said that those who reply to WAHEGURU JI KA KHALSA with WAHEGURU JI KI FATEH to them I (10th Guru) have my face pointing towards them. Those who do not reply to Gurfateh with Fateh to them I (Guru JI) turn my back.

A historical evidence in which it gets proved that Guru Gobind Singh ji gave this greeting to his Khalsa on it’s creation in Anandpur Sahib in 1699.

“Guru Ji cleaned up the blood from the five bodies and heads, and even washed the floor, then the Guru of these infidels stitched one head with another body, one by one, this process took about three hours. Then he covered these dead bodies with white sheets. The Guru of these infidels then took a cauldron made from stone and put an iron wok (bowl) without handles on top of it. He then poured water into the wok and started preparing “Amrit” (aab-e-hyat- elixir of life).

The infidel Guru kept churning the water with his double-edged sword and kept on reciting his kalma (Gurbani). This process went on for 1 – 1/2 to 2 hours. During this time a lady came from Guru’s house and put something in that water. Now the Amrit was ready.

From the corpses he took the covering sheets off. First he sat on the head side of Daya Ram and poured Amrit into his mouth, then poured some into his head and then sprinkled some in his eyes, and then he asked the dead body to say waheguru ji ka khalsa waheguru ji ki fateh. As if on his Gurus command, Daya Ram got up and repeated in his bold voice, Waheguru ji ka khalsa  waheguru ji ki fateh. It appeared that in the entire congregation everybody was so stunned that it seemed like no one was breathing. There was pin-drop silence. All the present were mesmerized with their Guru’s miracle. In the same manner one after another the Guru made the other four alive too.”
