The Khalsa Raj is an opportunity for positive change,  a chance to make the world better. It's like a knock on the door of your inner self every time you've wanted to stop something bad or improve the world. Instead of just wishing for change, open the door and let it in. 

For a better world for ourselves and future generations, we need to embrace Khalsa Raj. To do that, we should know what Khalsa Raj is,when it's coming, and how long it will last. So, let's understand and welcome this chance for positive transformation.

Khalsa Raj is not just the rule for Sikhs who have taken Amrit; it's about every soul that rises above the negative influences of this world. The purpose of Khalsa Raj is to help everyone overcome evil and promote goodness. It doesn't favour any specific religion but rather encourages following any faith in its true spirit. Sikhs should take Amrit and adhere to Guru Granth Sahib Ji to become Khalsa, a member of Waheguru's army.

It becomes the responsibility of every Sikh who has taken Amrit and becomes Khalsa to protect those who have become Khaalas,a person who is pure. This duty begins as soon as you receive Amrit and continues until the day you are called to join Waheguru. By fulfilling this duty, Waheguru will guide you to those Khaalas who need your support.

As each Sikh embraces their duty of being Khalsa, the world will gradually change to welcome Khalsa Raj. Guru Gobind Singh Ji once predicted Khalsa Raj using the metaphor of a small pipal tree surpassing a larger jand tree in the village of Saheva. The full story can be found in the "Sau Sakhi Pothi" or various online platforms. While some Sikhs may believe this story and others may not, the essence is not to instil pride or ego about the arrival of Khalsa Raj. Instead, it serves as a reminder that when, like the pipal tree, we collectively overcome the challenges rooted in the large tree of maya (illusion) and surpass it as a community, we will bring about Khalsa Raj.

The Khalsa Raj is expected to last for five thousand years until things change again. Waheguru allows tough times to happen so that we can appreciate the good times and avoid being arrogant. Even though we're told that good times will come and everyone will be happy, we're reminded not to forget Waheguru in our excitement.

Good times last as long as we remember Waheguru, while bad times come when we forget him. Let's all remember Waheguru, who sent us to Earth and established the Khalsa Raj. It's not just about being a Sikh or predicting when the Khalsa Raj will come or end. It's about staying true to ourselves and our faith. If we stay true to ourselves, the Waheguru will do his part to making the world better, and his Khalsa will protect the improved world that he creates.

ਆਖਾ ਜੀਵਾ ਵਿਸਰੈ ਮਰਿਜਾਉ ॥ ਆਖਣਿ ਅਉਖਾਸਾਚਾ ਨਾਉ ॥
aakhaa jeevaa visarai mar jaao || aakhan aoukhaa saachaa naao ||
Chanting it, I live; forgetting it, I die. It is so difficult to chant the True Name

ਸਾਚੇ ਨਾਮ ਕੀ ਲਾਗੈ ਭੂਖ ॥ ਉਤੁ ਭੂਖੈ ਖਾਇ ਚਲੀਅਹਿ ਦੂਖ ॥੧॥
saachae naam kee laagai bhookh || outh bhookhai khaae chaleeahi dhookh ||1||
If someone feels hunger for the True Name, that hunger shall consume his pain.||1||
