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||
"Gurdwara Amb Sahib turned into a massive gathering of the Khalsa Panth. Sikhs from all over Punjab reached there to show their support for Bhai Gurbaksh Singh and demand the release of Singhs from jails. Bhai Gurbaksh Singh addressed the Sangat in much chardi kala (high spirits) despite having not eaten anything for over 20 days. Bhai Gurbaksh Singh later requested the Singhs of Sikh Youth Federation Bhindrawale to stop their hunger strike. He himself fed them with love and appreciated their efforts."

The Warriors Dance
Today we remember martyrdom of Guru Tegh Bahadur Ji, the 9th Guru of the Sikhs. Originally named Tyag Mal (Master of Renunciation) Guru Tegh Bahadur Ji fought so ferociously on the battlefield that his fellow warriors renamed the Guru Tegh Bahadur, which loosely translates to brave/mighty wielder of the sword.
Guru Tegh Bahadur Ji was a living embodiment of the Sant/Sapai lifestyle as they spent the majority of their later life in deep meditation contemplating the message of the Gurus before them.
However their might of spirit would show itself once more in their final days as they chose to sacrifice their own existence so that another faith could continue to practice their religion freely.
We are all familiar with stories of sacrifice when fighting for faith or nation but this was the first time in history that the master of another way of being would chose to give up their right to life in order to ensure the prosperity of another’s freedom. To practice their way of being even though that way contradicted many lessons the Guru taught the Sikhs. This is the way of the Khalsa.
They are warriors who fight for righteousness and dharam. The only side they pick is the side of truth and Sarbat Da Bhalla (welfare of all mankind). Guru Tegh Bahadur Ji will forever be remembered as a shining example of that very ethos.
