hi

well guru ji saw the khalsa as his sons, he recognized the whole of the khalsa as his family and in a letter to aurangzeb, zafarnamah, guru ji said 

"What happened that you have killed four children (my sons), 

the coiled snake (in the form of my Khalsa) still remains (to confront you)."

 

So guru equated his 4 sons with the khalsa 

Sikhs are supposed to recognize all other sikhs as family, so if a loved one passes away you still have thousands of others that are your family.  This in todays time is hard to imagine, if only the Sikhs of today thought this way  ....

It is said that when Guru ji was informed of the martyrdom of his sons, he said:

Char mooay tau kia bhaya, jeevat kei hazaar

Meaning

What does it matter if 4 died, many thousands live.

That is that his other sons (the Khalsa) live on. So Guru Sahib didn't weep and cry like men today are encouraged to "show their emotions".

Not being rude, but don't need hearsay, is there anything written by Guru Gobind Singh Ji himself? I can't find anything.

The movie chaar sahibzadey part 2, i think its called banda singh bahadur. The 3D one. Shows the saakhi from sooraj parkash.

Its nice saakhi abt how guruji teaches mataji to deal with her grief, i call it the choori saakhi. 

You can watch the movie or read the original from sooraj parkash. Sooraj parkash is the history of the 10 gurus and the khalsa written in 1800s. Its one of our most authentic and oldest historical sources. You might be able to find it on ikatha.com or vidhiya.com. they might even have english translations. You will have to search through it tho. Its at least 10 volumes. Or u can buy the hardcover books in english version from turiyacharity.com

    • Jews have basically invaded Palestine, killed the locals and made it their own country because they believe that it's their divine right because "god" had promised them that land. And this promised land is mentioned nowhere other than in the Jewish bible written by Jews!    What kind of god makes one ethnicity his chosen people and promises them a land just for them?  Jews also see themselves as the governors of the law (10 commandments, torah etc) and also the people that God chose to reveal his laws to.    The whole thing was created to give them special status and for world domination. I even doubt that they were even enslaved by the egyptions, there is absolutely no record of 100,000s of Jews being in Egypt at one time. Made up stories and a made up struggle.  Many Christians actually support Israel as they believe Jesus will return once the Jews are back in Israel, which has already happened.  All they waiting for now is the construction of the 3rd temple.  Even the 2nd coming of Jesus is based around all these Jewish superstitions and their return to Israel. 
    • Bro I believe in 5 pyare there room of Guru Gobind Singh ji my question is there any where Guru Granth Sahib ji saying you need living guru or don’t need living guru I have few radasoami relatives they always quotes few Gurbani pangtiya trying to proof we need living guru they mention jug jug peeri chalay satguru ki   in each age true guru come and they meditate the naam what does jug mean in this pangti I though there are 4 jugs? Har nirmal at ujla bin gur paya nAh jaye ang 66 guru amardas ji telling to find guru?          
    • The rest of us non Jews in the west are not allowed to forget, there are whole museums, TV programs,  movies , news items to remind us. Back in 90s, over 1 million Tutsis were massacred but they have no where near any of the coverage that we receive about the Jewish holocaust.  The Jews in the west are thought in the same manner as the baniya/brahmin is thought of by the general indian public.  The difference between the Jews and Christian/Muslim is that latter two want everyone to follow their creed. The Jews do not do that. However there are elements of their tribe who like to indulge in mischief making.
    • Mir Mannu , Zakaria Khan and Lakhpat rai passed more than 200 yrs ago. They were hitler for us. We still remember the sikhs who suffered in their hands in our Ardas, don't we ? I think Jews should remember that episode on their congregational prayers , not whole of friggin world. So many ppl don't even know who jews are. But then again , I am willing to give the jews the benefit of doubt . They have a pretty cleaner slate than the chrislamo faction 
    • The Jews do seem to lord over everyone in regards to the holocaust.  But how long can this keep going on for. WW2 finished 75 years ago. Any Jew that survived the holocaust would at least be in their 80's.  Once the generation of that era passes on and there would be no one who would have living memory of what happened, I wonder if things will change drastically.  Eventually,  people will start (if not already) get tired and fed up with hearing about it along with being called a Nazi and anti-semitic.
