On the auspicious day of Baisakhi, Guru Gobind Singh Ji blessed the sikhs with the immortal boons of Amrit and Five Kakaars. He created Khalsa.

Five Kakaars are articles of faith and veneration for a devoted sikh. They remind us of the sacred commandments of the Divine Guru on the auspicious occasion of creation of the Khalsa. These facilitate awakening Guru consciousness in our minds.

These articles of faith and attendant commandments have become part and parcel of our daily life, of our body, mind and soul. It is only in perpetual faithful obedience of Guru's commandments that a true sikh can consecrate his body, mind and soul in a befitting and worthy manner.

A true sikh so devoted to the Guru always basks in the sunlight of His eternal living presence “Gur Mere Sang Sada Hai Naley”, and his character is par excellence.

Guru consciousness thus awakened, reins of his thoughts, speech and actions are held, controlled and guided by the beloved Satguru.

Through these boons He infused truthful living in the very veins of Khalsa, raising his character to the point of excellence.

A sikh is aware of his Guru's eternal presence with him with this holy gift of personal identity.

A true sikh mentally and physically attired in Guru's identity feels totally possessed by the Divine Guru. He remains in His holy grip. With this holy possession and holy grip, his mind, his thoughts, his speech, his actions become holy. Totally devoid of egoism, he lives in perfect tune with the sweet will of the beloved Satguru.

Adorning this uniform, a sikh lives in the light and grace of the Great Guru. With Guru consciousness awakened, this uniform becomes a powerful source of strength. This uniform prompts consecration of all activities unto the Satguru. The Great Guru glorified His total identity with the Khalsa in His most wonderful outpouring “Khalsa Mero Roop Hai Khas”. And it is for us now to sanctify and uphold the sanctity of this outpouring. We have to prove equal to the faith reposed in us and sanctify this holy identification.

In this attire, uniform of pride, let us cognise the perpetual presence of our beloved Satguru with us in all ups and downs of our life.
