History Mata ji contributions to the Sikh faith As a Daughter : Mata ji was brought up with the consciousness of the Gurujiís light; she fulfilled her parentís aspiration of serving the path of the Guruji beyond their expectations by growing into a perfect role model of grace, strength, persistence and sacrifice. As a Wife : She supported Guru Tegh Bahadurji when he was deep in meditation for years, again while he was on his missionary tour, and finally, when the Guruji left for Delhi to make the supreme sacrifice. As a Leader: After her husband, Guru Tegh Bahadurjiís martyrdom, she and her brother, Kirpal Chand had the responsibility of managing the affairs of the Panth. She also organized the langar (community kitchen) and played an important role as the administrator of the army. She had an important role inspiring the Khalsa armies during the battles Guru Gobind Singhji had to fight. Her role in the battle of Bhangani is especially remembered. As a Mother : She molded the father of the Khalsa, the great Guru Gobind Singhji, raising him as a single mother after the martyrdom of Guru Teg Bahadur ji. As a Grandmother and inspiration to the young martyrs: When Mata Ji and the sahibzadas were arrested and confined in Sirhind Fort, and as the children were summoned to appear in court each day, she kept urging them to remain steadfast in their faith. She constantly reminded the Sahibzadas that their Grandfather and Great-Grandfather had both sacrificed their lives to strengthen the ideals of Guru Nanak Devji. Her support of her grandsons played such an important role in Sikhism that as Sikhs, we probably owe our existence to her. It was due to her role that the seven and nine year old children did not budge from their beliefs and attained martyrdom. If the Sahibzadas had accepted Islam on that winter day, Sikhi probably wouldnít exist as it does today. So, in fact, we stand tall because of the teachings and the inspiration Mata Ji provided to her grandsons and thousands of martyrs who gave their heads and not their faith. As a Martyr: While imprisoned on top of an open tower during the cold month of December, Mata Gujriji continually did simran with no complaints about her physical being. She attained martyrdom the same day as her grandsons after hearing that her grandsons had been bricked alive rather than give up their faith. Her mission had been fulfilled.
