Declaration of Independent Spiritual Nation of Khalsa

The Holy congregation of the Sat Guru, Siri Guru Granth, this is a day of liberty, and the day of getting out of the field of treachery and betrayal to declare ourselves an independent spiritual nation of the Khalsa. We shall be what Guru Gobind Singh said we should be. There will be many, many setbacks and downfalls, and for that there are five hundred years of history, treachery, betrayal and persecution. Our training gives us the technology to elevate the spirit and experience Godhood, so we can stand gracefully through those persecutions. How can we be what we are? It’s very easy:

Naam Kumaaree Nanakaa charee rahe dinraa.t
Nanak is intoxicated with God’s Name day and night.

It is that intoxication of God’s will which elevates us from ordinary human to supreme divine being, where we can elevate ourselves, and persecution and prosecution become a joke. Our history has proven that we live for God, otherwise we don’t live at all. Commitment is not a joke with us.

We are the religion of this land, and we will continue to practice every bit of religion as told to us in the very true essence. We are not going to betray America by adopting that foolishness in which the human has been degraded to be a sex symbol. We are going to uplift America; I call on you to rally for that. Guru Gobind Singh uplifted every human to live one’s word of honor to the commitment and elevated position of a spiritual divine being. That is what we are going to practice in America.

We are not looking to ceremonies, we are not looking to rituals, we are not looking to religions. We are only looking to one thing: that we, the people of the free land of America, can with a free will of dignity, divinity and grace, produce a new generation which can turn its back on the Las Vegas ritualistic life and turn its face towards the One God and just One God. In that I invite Jews, Christians, Buddhists, Hindus, Muslims, anybody. Khalsa comprises everybody who just lives a pure life. And to that I will feel very honored if everybody who has God in his heart, God in his deed, and God in his faith and her faith, can come participate, and join. And that is what joining is to us. If such a majority is created that the people’s will is God’s will and God’s will is the people’s will, we’ll basically have everything straightened out, socially, economically, and politically.
