Did any of the Guru's marry outside their caste?

Guru Sahib doesn't have caste,(he is the light of Vaheguru), but if you are talking about the physical body of the Gurus, then none of the Gurus historically that had married, married outside of the Ksychatria varna. But despite that I really would like you to read what was said in a previous topic, to understand that the Anand Karajs were not caste-based, but rather based on the system of Gurmat, (Guru Sahib didn't just marry any Ksychatrias, but rather spiritually elite beings).

Lets try to think of it out of the box for a minute.

I've also come across another question "Why was none of the Sikh Gurus a woman?"

Back in those days, it was the so-called "high caste" people, especially males, who were calling the shots, setting norms etc. Guru Sahibaan were "physically born" in Kshatriya families, and were all males. But here is where it gets shocking. Even though they were born males, and born in Kshatriya (high caste) families, married within what we call as "same caste", they still preached the equality of genders and futility of ancestry/caste. This was a shock to Indian society and gave birth to a new revolution altogether.

Had a saint from a so-called "lower caste" preached against the caste cancer, or a female saint preached against gender inequality back in those days, they would be mocked at, and people would taunt them and say "Yeah well too bad for you, but you will obviously whine about it, hahaha!" But guess what, Guru Sahibaan shook the very foundations of that society once They (being males from "high caste" families) preached against these evils of caste cancer and gender inequality.

Lets not analyse too much into why Guru Sahibaan did what They did, lets see Their purpose and message behind it. We are not at Their level to fully comprehend the deeply spiritual reasons as to why They did what They did.

ਗੁਰਿ ਕਹਿਆ ਸਾ ਕਾਰ ਕਮਾਵਹੁ ॥
Do those deeds which the Guru has ordained.

ਗੁਰ ਕੀ ਕਰਣੀ ਕਾਹੇ ਧਾਵਹੁ ॥
Why are you chasing after the Guru's actions?

16 hours ago, Guest Guru's had no caste said:

The Trehan, Bhalla and Sodhi were not Khatri clans and nor were the Guru ki Mahal (spouses of our Guru Sahibaan). 

Stop making a false history. Read the actual history from Dasam Granth on the Sodhis and Bedis.

Did any of the Guru ji's marry outside their caste? Iv heard that Mata Gujri (Gujjar Kaur) was of a Gujjar background?   

Where did you read Mata Gujri ji was a Gujjar? I would really like to know what source someone was using to say that, other than pulling it out of where the sun don't shine. If you don't post a source, all can safely assume that is just pure concocted fantasy.

All of our Gurus were married in their own social group, the Khatris.

The Gujjars are a nomadic Muslim tribe that keeps cattle.

Here's the entry in Mahan Kosh for Mata Gujri ji:

ਕਰਤਾਰਪੁਰ ਨਿਵਾਸੀ ਲਾਲਚੰਦ ਸੁਭਿਖੀਏ ਖਤ੍ਰੀ ਦੀ, ਮਾਤਾ ਬਿਸਨਕੌਰ ਦੇ ਉਦਰ ਤੋਂ ਉਪਜੀ ਬੇਟੀ, ਜਿਸ ਦਾ ਵਿਆਹ ੧੫. ਅੱਸੂ ਸੰਮਤ ੧੬੮੬ ਨੂੰ ਕਰਤਾਰਪੁਰ ਵਿੱਚ ਗੁਰੂ ਤੇਗ ਬਹਾਦੁਰ ਜੀ ਨਾਲ ਹੋਇਆ, 
 
Mata Gujri ji's father was Lal Chand of Kartarpur, and mother was Bisan Kaur. Does that sound like Muslim names? Assuming Lal Chand and his family were Gujjars, do you think that Guru Hargobind Ji could find no other marriage match than a bunch of wandering Muslim cattle-herders? Lal Chand and family resided at Kartarpur, having formerly resided at Lakhnaur. Resided, not wandering around.
 
Also, assuming Lal Chand ji's family were Gujjars, I think you know very well that if Muslims want to marry their daughter to somebody non-Muslim, they insist on the groom getting circumsized and initiated into Islam, if only as a formality.
 
So do you think that our Satguru, Guru Teg Bahadur ji, was a Muslim and had accepted that Mohammed was the Prophet of God? If so, what was the point of Emperor Aurangzeb beheading Guru Sahib? Guru ji was already a Muslim!
 
Finally, how many families name their daughter after their caste? As was pointed out on this discussion board, would "Mata Jatti" or "Mata Chamari" make any sense? "Mata Tarkhani", "Mata Julahan"? I think you should look for the meaning of Gujri elsewhere, not in Gujjar, my friend.

Can you confirm which kingdoms those clans held in India as there is no record of that in any history books.

    • I saw the video on TikTok I think. It was at Wembley Stadium and I was unable to bookmark/favourite it because Tiktok decided to refresh. It was the "mainstream" Chaupai Sahib you will hear at a Singh Sabha gurdwaras, usually so-called Ramgarhia gurdwaras and also for the past 100 year or so in Harimandir Sahib under the current committee system.  In other words, the sikhs who give up or quit at ਖੜਗ ਕੇਤ ਮੈਂ ਸ਼ਰਨਿ ਤਿਹਾਰੀ ॥ ਆਪ ਹਾਥ ਦੈ ਲੇਹੁ ਉਬਾਰੀ ॥ Lord of the Almighty Sword, provides a shield for my protection. With Your Hands you have saved me.   ਸਰਬ ਠੌਰ ਮੋ ਹੋਹੁ ਸਹਾਈ ॥ ਦੁਸ਼ਟ ਦੋਖ ਤੇ ਲੇਹੁ ਬਚਾਈ ॥੪੦੧॥ You bestow help on me at all places and rescue me from pain and the designs of my demons.401. Kharag kait mai sarann tihaaree. Aap haath dai leho ubaaree. Sarab thor mo hoho sahaaee. Dustt dokh té leho bachaaee. (25) O The Lord of Sword, I seek Your protection. With Your Hands you have guarded me. At All Times be my Support. Save me from wickedness and pain. (25).
    • Bro, can you post from what line to what line they did paath of?
    • A decade later and I can show you all what the problem is. Both Khalsa Primary School and students from Pioneer Secondary Academy were invited for Vaisakhi celebrations, and they done a Chaupai Sahib paat. The problem is, they performed the politics ridden anti-dasam Bhasauria mutilated cut version of Benti Chaupai which is disrespectful to traditional puraatan samrpadaiye and mahapurakh. If bani politics is going to be used on children to skip lines from Dasam Pita ji dhan dhan Guru Gobind Singh ji's Benti Chaupai Sahib, that certain groups think it is ok to do, then @serious guptwas right to raise concerns a decade ago! IN 2024, when sangat is much more knowledgable about dasam bani and katha, when we have so many resources - then if we are not allowing our children to learn bani shud and let them choose their groups to follow later, then this raises RED FLAGS IN 2024!!!! AKAAAAL!
