“Gurdheay mathaa Guradhaev pithaa Guradgaey suaamee paramaesuraa”
The divine Guru is my mother the divine Guru is my father the divine Guru is transcendent lord and master (full shabad- http://www.sikhitothemax.com/page.asp?ShabadID=759 )
As we all know is mother’s day today, we all got our moms presents and card…. But have u even thought about the mothers of our faith??
We always hear about the great shadhees of the past n they are always male… but what about the females, the mother’s sister daughter’s wives. Don’t you think that we should take time out and think about them as well …? After all they did give up their lives us so that we can call our selves Sikhs
Let us thing about Bibi Nanaki. Guru Nanak dev Ji Mahraj’s older sister, she was the first Sikh and she recognised Guru Ji as a Guru
Mata Kivi the wife of Guru Angad dev Ji Mahraj had started the langar seva for those who visited the Guru so that they wouldn’t go hungry.
Mata Gurjari the wife of Guru Theg bhadar Mahraj Ji and mother of Guru Gobind Singh Ji, not only did she bring up Guru Gobind Singh Ji she brought up the sahibzahia and was with the youngest Baba Zorawar Singh Ji and Akali Nihung Baba Fateh Singh Ji when they were bricked alive un there rule of moguls.
Mata Sahib Kaur “The Mother of the Khalsa panth”(aka mata jito) Mata Sahib Ji did the biggest seva by putting the patshai (sugar crystals) into the Amrit to make it sweet and in turn the Sikhs that drink it.
All the mothers that had their children cut up in to pieces and put into necklace’s round their necks but they never gave up their dharma, while in Mir minus Jail
And lists goes on but let us not forget these grate mother and let us hope that the teachings that they have taught us will live on though our Children’s children like the mothers of the past, let us aspire to have and be mothers like them.
This Shabad is by Guru Nanak Dev Ji in Raag Aasaa on Pannaa 473

Woman becomes his friend; through woman, the future generations come.
Bha(n)dd muaa bha(n)dd bhaaleeai bha(n)dd hovai ba(n)dhhaan ||
When his woman dies, he seeks another woman; to woman he is bound.
So kio ma(n)dhaa aakheeai jith ja(n)mehi raajaan ||
So why call her bad? From her, kings are born.
Bha(n)ddahu hee bha(n)dd oopajai bha(n)ddai baajh n koe ||
From woman, woman is born; without woman, there would be no one at all.
Naanak bha(n)ddai baaharaa eaeko sachaa soe ||
O Nanak, only the True Lord is without a woman.
Jith mukh sadhaa saalaaheeai bhaagaa rathee chaar ||
That mouth which praises the Lord continually is blessed and beautiful.
Naanak thae mukh oojalae thith sachai dharabaar ||2||
O Nanak, those faces shall be radiant in the Court of the True Lord. ||2||
