Never be Afraid of Fighting - Passage from Panth Prakhash

Bhai Methab Singh Bhangoo (who brought Massa Rangar to justice) talks about Singhs who fear fighting the enemy.

ਤੁਰਕਨ ਲਰਨੈ ਮਰਨੋ ਡਰੇ ॥
A Singh who fears fighting Turks,

ਧ੍ਰਿਕ ਤਿਸ ਜਨਨੀ ਧ੍ਰਿਕ ਪਿਤ ਕਰੇ ॥
Worthless is his mother and father, (for what reason have they gave birth to such a Singh?)

ਦੋਹਰਾ ॥
ਮਰਨੇ ਤੇ ਕਯਾ ਡਰਪਨਾ ਲੇ ਪਾਹੁਲ ਖੰਡੇ ਧਾਰ ॥
After receiving Khande Di Pahul, then what reason is there to fear death?

(Panth Prakhash, Volume two, page 97)

This saying comes after Methab Singh declares to the Sangat he will go and bring justice to Massa Rangar.


ਆਪਿ ਨ ਡਰਉ ਨ ਅਵਰ ਡਰਾਵਉ ॥੩॥੧੭॥
I do not fear anyone, and I do not strike fear into anyone else.

- Bhagat Kabir Ji
