Baba Deep Singh dedicated his life to the study, repetition, preservation and absorption of Gurbani. Until we delve deeper into the infinite well of the Guru's words, can we really say that we know the story of Baba Deep? 

Baba Deep Singh's very presence roused thousands of warriors to face certain death. He was so merged with Guru Gobind Singh that he carried a deathless authority. Until we ourselves become closer to the Guru, can we really say that we know the story of Baba Deep? 

Baba Deep Singh's promise was not just an exchange of words between men, but a trust made in the heavens. Such was how beloved he was as a bhagat. Gurbani teaches us that God cannot break the words of his bhagats. Until we give our hearts more to devotion, can we really say we know the story of Baba Deep Singh? 


If Sikhi were smaller, if it didn't have over 200 years of Nanak walking this earth, perhaps the life of Baba Deep Singh would have inspired a world religion of its own right. And it would be well deserved, surely of the hundreds of religions around the world, some have been founded on less than the example that Baba Deep demonstrated. 


This is not to downplay any religion. This is to invoke us to think deeper on the immense blessing that we have to even have heard what Sikh history, Guru Nanak and Guru Gobind Singh are. Sikhi is a novel blessing on this earth that exceeds any record or living legacy. 

And it is all wasted if we stop there and simply be proud of it. Pride is not enough. Action is. That's the lesson of Baba Deep Singh. Until we transform the world around us in a real way, we are not walking the path. 

So let us put ourselves in the shoes of those who Baba Deep Singh spoke to. Those who didn't know what to do in the face of this dark world and its power. Just start walking. Do not delay. Do not procrastinate.

The battle may have looked different in those times, but we are still in Kalyug and Guru still needs his warriors to bring light to this world. You are a child of the Guru just the same as they were back then. The importance is just the same today. You know what Guru Sahib calls you to do. Now is the time to do it. You are being called to destiny and greatness by Guru Pita who is fully powerful to give all blessings to his beloveds.
