Here goes the tale of endowment of the Amrit
Guru Ji asked Diwan Dharam Chand, “You go and get a stony pestle and an iron shallow basin,” Obeying the order, Diwan Ji went and brought them immediately. Guru Ji placed the vessel on top of the bowl, poured water from the River Satluj and got ready to prepare the Amrit. Bhai Daya Ram by one, they partook of the Amrit. Next, Guru Ji, as well. The Five Sikhs added ‘Singh’ besides their names. After due compliments, the victory ovation was exclaimed.
Guru Ji explicated, “All your previous births, righteousness, deeds, beleifs, castes and the five traits have been annihilated. Converting you into Khalsa, you have been bestowed with Immanent Entity of Kaal, the Almighty. Now you have to protect its honour. Before you partook the Amrit, you were given Five Ks. You’re not to partake with them under any circumstances. In the very beginnings you were given a blue small-turban, a comb, Kirpan (sword), an iron Karaa, and white underwear. If you part with one, you must go to the gurdwara and beg for pardon in the congregation. Now listen to the four adamant anathemas through which a Sikh becomes apostate. From head to toe, no disrespect of the hair, not to eat the meat slaughtered cruelly, do not use tobacco, and no association with a Turkanee, the Muslim woman. If anyone of these four is infringed, the Amrit should again be partaken while begging for pardon. No association should be developed with Minas, Dhirmalias, Ramraias, Masands and person with cut hair. If anyone of these comes to the congregation for seeking pardon, he should be forgive, without any misgivings. Except Akaal Purkh, the God Almighty, you are not to worship graves, crematoriums. I have suffused you in gold, you are not to carry any apprehension.”
