  2. So my cousin who has Kirpan on him told me that he cannot pull it out because if he does he will have to shed blood with it or cut himself with it. Is this true?

    Shower kirpan

    I use a small kirpan when I shower in which I tuck it into my dastaar, I just wanted to know if this is right, also sometimes when I take my small kirpan out of my dastaar I forget to put on my everyday kirpan which I wear (I don't do it on purpose, I just forget) is alright for me to do japji sahib path to ask for, forgiveness and do benti that guru sahib ji stops me from this this again?
  6. Waheguru ji ka khalsa waheguru ji ki fateh I have been practicing sikhi for a while now, I do nitnim everyday and I do naam simran as well everyday. I am still living at home with my parents who do not approve of me taking amrit and I have chosen to respect them on this until I move out and find my own place. In the meantime however, I have been living the life of an amritdhari essentially and this includes wearing a kirpan and I feel as though if they don't wish me to actually take amrit I can at least do as much as I can to be prepared when I do finally take it. I recently saw some post

    Kirpan Help

    I am really lost and I truly regretting a decision I made a few months back of no longer wearing a kirpan while I wear all my other kakkars. I took amrit at a young age and my love for sikhi is still strong and everything was fine until the past year around when I reached 17 to 19 years of age. I got mixed with the wrong crowd and lost track of my nitnem although i did not take part in any activity including doing drugs or kaam. Just a few month back out of shame I stopped wearing my kirpan since I felt guilty for not doing my nitnem while wearing my kirpan. It didn't sit well with me to portr
  9. 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 gre
  10. I took amrit a few years ago and everything was going well until I started loosing track of my nitnem and started hanging with the wrong crowd. I still did not engage in any bujjar kurrehits such as beadabi of kesh, taking intoxicants, or kaam. However, I was not consistent with my nitnem. Last year I decided to stop wearking my kirpan since I felt like I was showing off when I wasn't really doing my nitnem, I was portraying my bana without the bani. Since then, i have changed a lot and have began to get on track, and focusing on the areas I have been lacking in. I constantly regret every tha
  11. 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.

    Kirpan slides out easily

    My kirpan slides out easily, makes me feel uneasy if my children jump around me. It was really secure with the fabric band around it but that always slips off the part which would hold the kirpan into its holder. Any suggestions?
  13. I would like to know different views on women and covering their head after taking amrit. I’ve read in gurbani to cover your head when preparing food and eating. A 5 k is kesh. I think akj see kesh as dastar regardless of male or female while eg nanaksar see it as keeping your hair uncut. I guess I am asking, is a dastar compulsory for a amritdhari female or is a chunni ok, or is nothing okay day to day and is it only required at certain times? I have a lot of female family members who only wear a chunni to gurdwara and nothing otherwise, yet they have taken amrit. They don’t wear a k
  14. Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Waheguru Ji Ke Fateh. i wanted to ask why don’t some mahapursh and Sants don’t wear kirpans. Sant Baba Nand Singh Ji and Sant Baba Isher Singh Ji do not wear kirpans. How come this is the case? I am just curious knowing why. Bhul Chuk Maf Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Waheguru Ji Ke Fateh
  15. I don't how this is happening. They're not letting Sikhs carry Kirpans in our own places. https://www.tribuneindia.com/news/punjab/golden-temple-fortified-ahead-of-bluestar-anniversary-92533 Tribune News Service Amritsar, May 31 Ahead of the Operation Bluestar anniversary that falls on June 6, the police have tightened security in and around the Golden Temple, stopping devotees from entering the shrine complex. This comes in the wake of clashes between SGPC workers and pro-Khalistan activists in the Golden Temple in recent years. A police officer said, “We apprehend
  16. I am the first Sikh in the history of Canada to have successfully fought for my right to wear the kirpan. It is a legal precedent in Canadian law. I am directing your attention to my blog. I have uploaded a jpeg here but at my blog, you can download it as a pdf. Visit: https://assaultatdixiegurdwara.wordpress.com/2020/02/20/kirpan-vs-epidemic-china/

    Disney Universal Florida

    Dear Members, Just wanted to check if anyone has visited Florida this year and whether you found it okay to enter Disney or universal okay with kirpan despite there being metal scanners. Any advise appreciated. Thanks in advance.
  23. I’m flying to Punjab tomorrow and although Birmingham airport does allow a kirpan less than 6 cm I have to stop at Ashgabat and I don’t want any problems there. A Singh told me if I’m without my kirpan I cannot eat any food, is this true and are there any other requirements?

    Football Kirpan

    Das was thinking of going to the world cup final if England make it. But obviously this would depend on kirpan laws in Russia and Fifa rules on Kirpan, any insight would be helpful, Thanks.
