Story of Ms Kirpa Kaur Khalsa who is from Australia and is currently studying in the UK. Bhenji recently took Amrit and became a member of the Khalsa family. May she be blessed with more Chardikala and Gursikhi Jeevan!
She narrates her journey of being an Amritdhari Sikhni!
I first felt a connection with Guru Sahib when I was 5 years old looking through a picture book in my school library in Australia. Growing up I continued to witness the amazing power of Guru Sahib. Every step closer I took to Guru Sahib, on my discovery I felt so much Pyaar (love) and such a strong presence guiding me on this beautiful lifelong path. Guru Sahib brought me to England for a university exchange and continued to shower me with blessings and guidance- the amount of Pyaar Guru Sahib gives his children is beyond anything in this world. On 20th December 2014 in Coventry, Guru Sahib blessed me into the Khalsa Family. There is no way to describe this feeling! All I can say is my soul is at peace now.
With the power of Naam and Guru Sahib’s Pyaar, there is no way we can ever feel alone or empty. When I was really young I just felt fascinated by the people in the library book and mesmerized by Sri Harmandir Sahib. When I looked at the pictures I felt like I had found my place in the world. It was like I had a connection with it from past janams (lives). There are not a lot of Gursikhs in Australia. However, with God’s grace I applied for exchange programs all over the world and Guru Sahib brought me to England and surrounded me with so many inspirational Gursikhs.
I had so many problems and hurdles to get to UK but Guru ji did not let me fail any test. Even in the last hurdle with my visa I had no certainty that I would be allowed into the country to stay, but I felt that confidence to just to go and everything would work out – and it did. With God’s Grace everything happened perfectly – I know Guru Sahib wanted me to come here and be amongst the Gursikhs and the Saadh Sangat. It’s an amazing feeling – everything was done for a reason!
My name before was Ruby Palmer. My family is full of beautiful people. I love them so much but it is hard for them to understand as they don’t believe in religion. There have been a lot of hurdles and the image of a Dastaar (turban) is confronting for them because it’s so different to anything they know. However, I just explain to them with love why I am doing things and with time they’re getting more and more use to it- it’s just about changing what they perceive as normal. The bottom line is that they just want me to be happy, and following Guru Sahib’s path is what makes me feel the happiest and fulfilled.
20th Dec was the best day of her life when she connected to Guru Sahib & became the member of Khalsa Panth!
