Bhai Mati Dasji

 greatest martyrs in Sikh history

We always quote in Ardas (Sikh Prayer) for Bhai Taru Singhji:

Jinhaan’ singhaan’ singhaniaan’ nae dHaram haet sees deettae, baand baand kataa-ae,
Khopariaan’ luhaa-ee-aan’, charkharee-aan’ tae charhae, aare-aan’ naal chiraa-ae ga-ae,
Gurduaare-aan’ dee saevaa la-ee kurbaaniaan’ keeTee-aan’, dHaram naheen’ haareaa,
Sikhee kaesaan’ svaasaan’ naal nibhaa-ee, tinhaan’ dee kamaa-ee dah 
theaan dhar kae Khaalsaa jee bolo jee Vaaheguroo.
