ਚੌਪਈ । ਦੇਵੀ ਪਾਸੋਂ ਵਰ ਲੈ ਕੇ, ਏਹੁ ਪੰਥ ਹੈ ਬਣਾਇਆ । Receiving a boon from the Devi the Panth was created.

ਕਾਰਨ ਤੱਤਿਆਂ ਦੇ ਤੇਜ, ਨਾਮ ਖਾਲਸਾ ਸਿੰਘ ਠਹਿਰਾਇਆ । In order to give glory the name of Khalsa Singh was bestowed on them.

ਸਿਖ ਸਿੰਘ ਸੋਈ ਜੋ ਗੁਰੂ ਕੇ ਵਾਕ ਪਛਾਣੇ । [One is only] a Sikh and Singh if they recognize orders of the Guru.

ਅਗੇ ਦੂਜਾ ਹੋਰੁ ਛੰਦ ਸੁਣੋ, ਜੋ ਸਤਿਗੁਰਾਂ ਬਚਨ ਬਖਾਣੇ । Now listen to the second Chand, which the Guru has spoken.

ਚੌਪਈ । ਏਡੀ ਸੇਵਾ ਅਤੇ ਜਾਚਨਾ ਸਤਿਗੁਰਾਂ ਜੋ ਕੀਤੀ । [Kesar Singh writes] This great amount of selfless service and prayer was performed by the Satiguru [to the Devi]

ਦੇਵੀ ਮਾਤਾ ਜੀ ਦੀ, ਵਾਸਤੇ ਪੰਥ ਦੇ ਵਰ ਵਾਚਾ ਲੀਤੀ । To the Mother Devi so the Panth could receive great blessings [and protection]

ਮਾਤਾ ਕਾਲੀ ਦਾ ਕਾਲਾ ਬਾਣਾ ਸਿੰਘਾਂ ਨੂੰ ਦਿਵਾਇਆ । The dark Bana [uniform] of Mata Kaali [Devi] was given to the Singhs.

'ਸਿੰਘ' ਮਾਤਾ ਦਾ ਬਾਹਨ, ਸੋ ਪੰਥ ਨਾਮ ਹੈ ਠਹਿਰਾਇਆ । ੪੨੯ । The Lion [Singh] is the vehicle of the Mata [because Chandi rides a lion], due to this the Panth received the name of Singh.

ਆਸ਼ਾ ਸਾਹਿਬ ਦਾ ਜੋ ਤੁਰਕਾਂ ਨੂੰ ਨਾਸ ਕਰਨ ਦਾ । It is the hope of the Master [Guru Gobind Singh Ji] to destroy the Turks.

ਕਾਰਨ ਇਹ ਸੀ ਪੰਥ ਜਗਤ ਵਿਚ ਧਰਨ ਦਾ । For this reason the [Khalsa] Panth was manifested in this world.

ਗੁਰ ਕਾ ਸਿਖ ਅਤੇ ਸਿੰਘ ਹੈ ਸੋਈ । ਗੁਰੂ ਕੇ ਵਾਕ ਪਛਾਣੇ ਕੋਈ । ੪੩੦। The Guru's Sikh and Singh is one who recognizes the order of the Guru.

ਅਗੇ ਹੋਰ ਸੁਣੋ ਛੰਦ, ਜੋ ਆਪ ਰਸਨੀ ਉਚਾਰਾ । ਕਾਰਨ ਤੁਰਕਾਂ ਦੇ ਨਾਸੈ, ਪੰਥ ਸਵਾਰਾ । Listen to the following passage [which is not provided in this post], which the Guru has spoken with his tounge. The Panth will become beautiful after destroying the Turks.

ਅਪਨੀ ਹਥੀਂ ਨਾਸ ਨਹੀ ਸੇ ਕਰਨੇ । ਪੰਥ ਪਾਸੋਂ ਨਾਸ ਕਰਵਾਇ ਸੀ ਧਰਨੇ । ੪੩੧ । [The Guru] did not want to destroy [the Turks] with his own hands, so the Panth was created to destroy the Turks. ਜੇ ਆਪ ਨਾਸ ਕਰਨੇ ਹੋਂਦੇ, ਤਾਂ ਪੰਥ ਨ ਕਰਦੇ ।

If [the Guru] did destroy the Turks, then the Panth would not have been created. ਅਤੇ ਏਡੀ ਜਾਚਨਾ ਮਾਤਾ ਦੀ ਕਿਉਂ ਮਨ ਧਰਦੇ ।

And why would the great request to the Mother [Devi] be thought of [in the Guru's ... (more)

There are two of the following possibilities

  1. Sikhs used to worship Durga to win favor in war, Durga is the goddess of war
  2. Since First people to lose in war were Hindu Pahari Rajas and Sikhs were opposed to Brahmin superiority, so Brahmins added Durga reference inside Sikh scriptures so that the religion collapses in itself. This is the way of Brahmin/ Chanakya

Which of the two is true no one really knows
