1. Love your Religion

Are you proud to be a Sikh? Do you love Sikhism? Do you live Sikhi way of Life? You might say Yes to first 2 questions, but don’t want to answer the 3rd question. Fair enough! It happens with everyone. But when you say or rather think that you love Sikhi than you should know the actual reason of loving it, and not because you were born as a Sikh, so you love it.

When Bhai Taru was arrested by Zakaria Khan, then he gave him the choice of converting to Islam or having his hair cut off. In reply, Bhai sahib asked him if by converting to Islam could he guarantee that he would never ever die?. If the answer was no, then it’s better to die serving his Guru.

I found this beautiful lines from the internet:

What you say is your religion
How you say it’s your religion
Who you love is your religion
How you love is your religion
All your science, your religion
All your hatred, your religion
All your wars are your religion
Every breath is your religion


2. Engage in honest work

Bhai Taru Singh showed great devotion and a generous nature and believes in the honest living. He worked tirelessly in his fields. Mughal rulers levied heavy taxes on their citizens, especially Sikhs whom they sought to annihilate. Though they had little sustenance left over after paying revenue to the government, Bhai Taru Singh and Bibi Tar Kaur honored their father’s memory and shared generously with their Sikh brethren.


3. Share your Earnings, Food, especially with needy.

Always live by the 3 major principles in life – Remember God, Earn an honest income and Share your earning with needy and selflessly serve others.

4. Compassionate Nature

Bhai Taru Singh had the compassionate nature and always keen in helping people in need. One day A Muslim by name of ‘Rahim Bakash’ had a 16 year old unmarried daughter ‘Salma’ who had been abducted and imprisoned by the Mogul commander of Patti. His pleas to the governor Zakaria Khan for his daughter’s release had been denied. ‘Rahim Bakash’ learned of Bhai Taru’s compassionate nature. Fearing the loss of his daughter’s innocence, he journeyed to Bhai Taru’s home and begged desperately for the Sikhs help. Bhai Taru arranged for a squadron of Sikhs in the area to storm the fortress in Patti and recover the girl. The commander who abducted the girl lost his life during the raid to rescue ‘Salma’.


5. Fearless Nature

When Bhai Taru Singh and his sister was arrested by Zakaria Khan than the horrified villagers, who loved the gentle souls of Bhai Taru and Bibi Tar Kaur, raised money to pay bribes and arranged for the pair’s release. Bhai Taru accepted their help to free his sister, however knowing well the hardships endured by the local populace, he refused to accept any aid on his own behalf. Instead, he fearlessly faced his Mogul captors. When urged to renounce his faith for Islam or face death, he accepted death.

Like the swan on the lake, death hovers over the body. Kabeer says, meditate on God (Guru Granth Sahib Ji, 325).
