  1. THIS ? Thanks my brother. I love how I can reach out to the sangat here.
  2. Brother. Its for work. I had to make changes to my life because I work in construction. I can't wear a bana, I have to wear pants, I have to wear safety boots. They won't let me in the site. I'm sure Guru ji would understand. What do you think ? BTW I do NOT wear a safety hat. Just my dumalla. Maybe I'll do the kamarkasa. Instead of the belt if thats any better. I have a long 14 inch kirpan I know what puratan singhs did. But at a construction site some of that attire is not allowed. You must know this. I think pleasing to my Guru is kirat karni. And still keeping my nitnem and having all my kakkars doing seva and naam. Whether kirpan is in a kamarkasa or in a sheath on my belt. Obviously when im outside work...I always wear gatra kirpan. For example...in the shower, in bed ...like all the time. I agree patka is not khalsa. I only asked about the gatra. As for Sarbloh. My Kara is Sarbloh. My kirpan is too. Thats maryada I know. Just wanna point out, we have come along way, and their is stronger better innovative swords and knifes, being made now. If one is truly to have the best shasters I think uts good to carry these as well. Like Cold steel. Serrated Thanks for input ji
  3. The Kirpan is there to protect the poor and for self-defence. With patience and mercy, the Kirpan is to be used as a sword to destroy oppression. The Kirpan is to always be in a gatra and never to be removed from the body. The Kirpan protects us from hidden and seen enemies. The Kirpan is a weapon to protect the whole body, as a minimum it should be nine inches in length. Keeping the Kirpan in a Kangha, in the Kesh and putting it on a string around the neck like a Janeoo, are against the Rehat and forbidden. You are never to walk over your Kirpan or other weapons. When washing your Kesh, the Kangha is to be tied to your Kirpan and the Kirpan tied around your waist. When bathing, your Kirpan is to be tied around your head and not tucked into the Kashara as this dishonours your Kirpan. When women bathe they are to tie their dupata on their head and then their Kirpan. When going to sleep your Kirpan is not to be removed from your body. The Kirpan is only to be used for two things. Firstly, to give Guru Jee’s blessing to freshly prepared Karah Prasad or for langar. Secondly, in order to destroy tyrants and oppressors. It must never be used for anything else. If the Kangha, Kara or Kirpan are separated from your body, you are forbidden to eat or drink until they are replaced. Upon the replacement of your missing Kakkar, Japjee Sahib is to be recited and an Ardas must be performed for the seperation and to beg for forgiveness. The Ardas may be performed either in a Gurdwara or the place where you are replacing your Kakkar. Having done this, you may eat and drink." Thanks brother. I dont have the taksaali maryada. But some singhs I know do. Thanks for your input ji
  4. Yes I understand what you are saying But I don't think I can wear a bana at work site. Back in the days singhs in the past didn't wear safety boots either. So how can I give up safety boots and pants.... Bro Im Working kirat Karni.. I dont have to wear a construction hat...so I'm happy about that. Maybe one day these construction sites will let us wear a bana to work too So we can lose the pants I dunno
  5. My kirpan is 14 inches .... but there's an attachment for the belt where I can secure it so that its always with me at work. Tyar bar tyar and not in my dastaar. However when I go home I wear the gatra. Only work its in my sheath. Thanks for your input I really appreciate you
  6. I believe singhs in the past wore kirpans in kamarkasa like nihangs
  7. I'll be honest. And I know many will hate me for saying this. Do ardaas take it off until training is completed and the before you put it back on do ardaas again. I did this when I had to fly to Vancouver. Also your training martial arts. And yes occasionally you have to spar with others. It's not safe for your or the other fighter. I believe Guru ji wants us to learn martial arts and hand to hand combat. Therefore my Guru ji wont mind...in my opinion. I learned sikhi from basics of sikhi bhai jagraj singh. He said sikhi is practical. Can't stress over these things to much. Yes be tyar bar tyar. Where it in the shower, to bed. But when it comes to training and sparring with others I believe u should do ardaas and train with peace of mind. Not constantly worrying if you'll hurt the other person. Plus I would like to see more sikhs in professional combat sports. But to do so..you must train with others. Some people are to strict. It a point it becomes a bit ritualistic, which is totally against sikhi. Now I know ...I mightve offended someone ...or someone will have the need to say I'm wrong and that the message im passing on is not right. Thats fine ...I know...I understand. But thats my opinion...take it or leave it.
  8. Thank you. I really appreciate it. I will do it both ways. I'll use the sheath on my belt at work. And gatra around my waist at gym.
  9. I've posted this before to but got no answers. Please sangat ji. Need your opinion. I'm on construction. I sweat and gatra gets wet and smelly. Also its in the way sometimes. I have all my 5 KS on me at all times. But I would like to put my kirpan in a sheath, like a holster which the belt goes through. Or even clips on to my belt. I'm aware the gatra is not a kakaar, but obviously the kirpan is. What is your opinion? Just to be clear I wear my kirpan and gatra at home, sleep, shower, gurdwara, pretty much everywhere else.
  10. Waheguru ji ka khalsa Waheguru ji ke fateh Sangat ji, I have a question. Need your help. I work in construction, I sweat alot. My gatra over time gets very wet at work due to sweat. And it smells. I have to wash it quite often. So my question is, can I have a kirpan holster on my belt instead of the gatra(strap) going around my shoulder? Just for work. At home I out my gatra back on because obviously I'm not wearing my belt all the time. I figured it should be fine because the 5Ks is kirpan only and not the gatra. Im not sure this is why I'm here. Your advice will be great, since Guru is Sangat, Sangat is Guru too. Guru khalsa panth. I can turn to you for help or questions. Also another question. I know we are suppose to carry the best shaster and I include the kirpan in that category. I saw a really nice hunting knife that comes with a holster its made of the best metal for knifes. Is that OK or does it have to be a taksaali kirpan. Thank you. Waheguru ji ka khalsa Waheguru ji ke fateh
  11. Go for it. Good luck. You should be able to marry anyone you like. Be free. God will not punish you even if you marry a black or white person Trust me.
