Defining Khalsa

The Tenth Master Guru Gobind Singh, established "Order of the Khalsa," Khalsa means the Guru's own i.e. his special one, loved one, the pure one.

The people properly initiated into Sikh faith by taking Amrit, the holy drink, are called Khalsa. The Khalsa keeps the hair unshorn, head covered, and observe other dictates of taking Amrit to attach themselves to God. Khalsa was created to get oriented to God, and to uplift the masses to fight for their rights, to struggle for total freedom - including that of their faith, to actively stand against oppression, discrimination, cruelty, and to lead the people for selfless service combined with universal love, help to the needy and protection to the weak. Khalsa - Sant Sipahi mean, the saint soldier.
