Waheguru ji ka khalsa, Waheguru ji ki fateh. It means the khalsa belong to waheguru and the victory is of waheguru.

There is history behind this... Guru Gobind singh ji has fought many wars and won them too. Then one sikh said to guru ji that you and your khalsa has won all the wars, on which guru ji said that khalsa is not mine, it is waheguru(waheguru ji ka khalsa) and victory is not mine, neither nor khalsas, it is of waheguru (waheguru ji di fateh). sikhs says it to greet each other to remind each other that we all belong to waheguru and the victory also will be waheguru only. it foster the spirit to love waheguru because we belong to waheguru and also foster us to fight for waheguru's victory.

Veer ji thank you so much for your response. I heard it in katha and searched for the meaning on the Internet but I was still somewhat confused, but you have really explained it throughly. Thank you once again, I say it to all my religious family and friends but I just said it for the sake of it but know I know what it means I will say it with pride and honour.
