BookRev-19Four Religious Communities of India:Hindu, Sikh, Khalsa and Nirmallae Sant -7. 3. THIRD KHALSA COMMUNITY:- The learned and the pure (KHALAS) of heart Sikhs have two options in serving God for the benefit of humanity. One is to join the third Khalsa community after Baptism and the other is to concentrate upon Preaching the Gospel. The Sikhs who are physically fit (JATTI) generally prefer to join the Khalsa Community (PAAR SHIV SENA) whilst the disabled or the people with great inclination towards Preaching and service become the Apostles of the fourth community. As women could not a Khalsa, so they can serve God as NIRMALLAE SANT. Typical example is Miran Bai.
It is worth mentioning the ceremony of the initiation of the Khalsas. Sachae Patshah Gobind Rai Ji invited all the devotees to gather at Kesh Garh Sahib and then He asked for the heads of devotees for presentation to PAR SHIV for the service of God, as the Brahmin Gurus ask the devotees for animal sacrifices to Shiv or His Consort KALI. The FIVE were beheaded on the stage publicly and then the head of one and the torso of the other were sewed. Nectar was prepared by reciting holy verses and sweetner was added by His Consort Maha Devan representative of Holy Spirit. The Five were revived by pouring Nectar in each one's mouth and they proclaimed we are the Soldiers of God and Victory be of our Father (WAHEGURU JI KA KHALSA; WAHEGURU JI KI FATEH). So, such Khalsas have no secular ties at all as a person on death has none. Of these Baptised, some became the Apostles after studying the Vedas from the Brahmin Teachers of Banares, the Jerusalum of India. That is, the Apostles are also not family people or work for their families anymore.
The transition from Sikh to Khalsa was not abrupt but slow and steady. This transition started from the First Royal King HARGOBIND JI, who first started the work of PAR SHIV SHAKTI MARAG along with expounding, HAR, the AD-GRANTH SAHIB to the Sikhs.
The change over from the BHAGTI or BHAKHTI MARAG of SATGURU NANAK DEV JI to the SHAKTI MARAG of "GOBIND" was marked by the initiation rites stated by SATGURU ARJUN DEV JI and conducted by Bhai Buddah Ji in which the head of HARGOBIND JI was shaved as part of the ritual (Ref.: "The Evolution of the Sikh Community" by W.H.McLeod, OUP. 1976 Pp.77). This was done in accordance with the Hindu custom of shaving the head of the male person when he made progression from one ASHRAM (stage of life) to the next; so in the case of Royal King HARGOBIND JI, it was the progression from BHAGTI to SHAKTI MARAG that was marked by this shaving of head ritual.
Further, as demiurge god SHIV had three consorts (PAARVATTI, DURGA AND KALI), so the Royal King HARGOBIND JI had three wives (DAMODRI, NANKEE AND MAHAN DEVI). The compound name "HAR GOBIND" reflects that He was the expositor of the Gospel (HAR) and exercised the Power (SHAKTI) of GOBIND (PAAR SHIV). Thus, in the name of "HAR" (PIRI), He established The AKAAL TAKHT (to look after the affairs of BRAHMAN VARN) for the Apostles or NIRMALLAE SANTS of the fourth community and He retreated into the motherly care of the SHIVALIK HILLS for performing the work of "SHAKTI MARAG" in the name of "GOBIND".
Further, as the Royal King (SACHAE PAATSHAH) is superior to the king (BAADSHAH), and, therefore, He should look after the righteous Kings. That is why on His release from the Gwaliar Fort, Royal King HARGOBIND JI insisted upon and secured the release of innocent and oppressed Kings. That is, whereas the Kings look after the property of people, the Royal Kings look after the "honour" (PATT) of the people.
Similarly, the names of Royal Kings HAR RAI JI and HAR KRISHAN JI also speak for themselves the progression in transition.
Thus, SATGURU TEGH BAHADUR JI gave the finishing touch to The AD-GRANTH SAHIB and thus, to the BHAGTI MARAG by giving His own sacrifice to the most satanic Khatris of Kashmir Valley who had become the first rated Mullahs in the royal court of King Aurangzeb, a most hypocrite King of India whilst The Royal King GOBIND RAI JI gave the finishing touch to SHAKTI MARAG by establishing the independent Army of Philanthropic (PAR UPKAARI) KHALSA Soldiers. As the name "GOBIND" also signifies SHRI KRISHAN BALDEV JI, so the Royal King GOBIND RAI JI was the incarnation of PAAR SHIV (ROOHANI, spiritual, NEETI PARSHOTAM AVTAAR) as SHRI KRISHAN BALDEVJI was the incarnation of SHIV (DUNIAVI, secular, NEETI PARSHOTAM AVTAAR). Further, as SHIV is higher in status than VISHNU, so the Royal King GOBIND RAI JI, PAAR SHIV, was higher than SATGURU (PIR) NANAK DEV JI, PAAR VISHNU and, therefore, Royal King GOBIND SINGH JI was addressed by His devotees Pathans as "UCH DA PIR" i.e. Supreme PIR.
