Khalsa Mahima(Pa: ਖਾਲਸਾ ਮਹਿਮਾ) is title of two poetic compositions written by Guru Gobind Singh in praise of the Guru Khalsa in poetry form.

The summary of this Bani is narrated by Gobin Sadan:
"This has four verses. It delineates the glory that is associated with the Khalsa. Guru Ji explains the role of the Khalsa to the priests who had come to perform a yagna. He says that it is only through the Khalsa that all achievements have been possible for him."

It is literally praise of the Khalsa, it is a short poem by Guru Gobind Singh inserted at the end of the thirty-three Savaiyya in the Dasam Granth. The language of the poem is in Braj Bhasa (medieval Hindi) of the Mathura/Agra region. The poem recounts an incident which occurred during a Divali feast, which Guru Gobind Singh hosted at Anandpur. On that occasion the former head of one of the discontinued Sikh manjis, the Hindu Pandit Kesho Gopal, a Brahman who had not taken Amrit, was not invited to eat, until the Khalsa had feasted. Kesho felt slighted, because being a Brahman who had held a post as the Guru's masand he felt that he should have been served first and definitely not after the Khalsa had been feted.

In response Guru Gobind Singh recited his hymn exalting the Khalsa:

"I have won my battles through the favour of my Sikhs,
Through their favour have I been able to dispense largess,
Through their favour my troubles have receded,
And through their favour my prosperity expanded.
It is through their favour that I acquired knowledge.
Through their favour I subdued my enemies,
Through their favour am I exalted,
There are, else, millions of such humble persons as me.
Let my body, my mind, my head, my wealth, and all that is mine
Be dedicated to their service."

As in the hukanamas, we see in this poem the deep heartfelt feelings of Guru Gobind Singh for the Khalsa. One must remember that Guru Gobind Singh was, himself, a member of the Khalsa, being the sixth man to be initiated, taking Amrit from the Panj Piares.

Shabad by Guru Gobind Singh

Shabad : poorun joth jugai ghut mai thub khaalus thaahi nukhaalus jaanai

ਪੂਰਨ ਜੋਤ ਜਗੈ ਘਟ ਮੈ ਤਬ ਖਾਲਸ ਤਾਹਿ ਨਖਾਲਸ ਜਾਨੈ ॥

ਜਾਗਿਤ ਜੋਤਿ ਜਪੈ ਨਿਸ ਬਾਸ੝ਰ ਝਕ ਬਿਨਾ ਮਨ ਨੈਕ ਨ ਆਨੈ ॥
ਪੂਰਨ ਪ੝ਰੇਮ ਪ੝ਰਤੀਤ ਸਜੈ ਬ੝ਰਤ ਗੋਰ ਮੜ੝ਹੀ ਮਟ ਭੂਲ ਨ ਮਾਨੈ ॥
ਤੀਰਥ ਦਾਨ ਦਯਾ ਤਪ ਸੰਜਮ ਝਕ ਬਿਨਾ ਨਹਿ ਝਕ ਪਛਾਨੈ ॥

pooran joth jagai ghatt mai thab khalas thahi nakhalas janai.

jagith joth japai nis basur eaek bina man naik n anai.
pooran praem pratheeth sajai brath gor marrhee matt bhool n manai.
theerathh dhan dhaya thap sanjam eaek bina nehi eaek pashhanai.

Such a man, in whose heart shines the full Divinely Radiant Light is a true a pure Khalsa.

He the Khalsa meditates on the Ever-radiant Light, day and night, and rejects all else but the one Lord from the mind.
He decorates himself with perfect love and faith, and believed not in fasts, tombs, crematoriums and hermit cells, even by mistake.
He knows none except the one Lord in the performance of acts of pilgrimage, charities, compassion, austerities and self-control.
