    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?
  2. 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 kirpan either. When I say I would want to fully wear a kirpan and dastar if I am ever lucky enough to take amrit, they think I’m extreme and over the top. I also wouldn’t wear makeup and jewellery but they all do. So I wonder am I the one who is assuming this is required which is making me delay amrit for longer as I’m not ready to wear a dastar and completely make those changes (I need my ego to lessen) or am I the one misunderstanding and is it okay to do what they do and therefore I am delaying it when I could do it sooner.
  3. 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
  4. 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 that some Sikh activists might gather inside the shrine in advance. Moreover, we want to ensure social distancing in view of the Covid pandemic.” Section 144 has been imposed, and carrying any weapon, including the “kirpan”, has been banned. Akal Takht officiating Jathedar Giani Harpreet Singh is yet to take a call on the programme. His “parallel” counterpart Bhai Dhyan Singh Mand, however, has said he would offer at Akal Takht and deliver a “public address”. — TNS
  5. 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.
  12. 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.

    Dori on Kirpan?

    WJKK WJKF I decided to use dori for my kirpan. I saw a YouTube video but I don't really understand it and it's too fast paced for me as a beginner. Any tutorials? WJKK WJKF

    Pure Gym

    Does anyone know if pure gym allow kirpan? It doesn't mention anything about any kind of weapon or religious artifacts in the membership rules but was wondering if anyone knows whether or not we can wear one. At the moment I wear my kirpan under my clothes well hidden when I go gym.
  17. WJKKWJKF, I am an Amritdhari Sikh. As a part of work, I have to visit Singapore for four days ( might be posted permanently there ). Currently, I live in India. It is becoming really very hard to convince about removing kirpan for traveling. For the flight, I have heard that we can check-in our kirpan in the luggage and take it on an international flight. People suggest to perform Ardas and wear it on reaching the destination. However, I found that kirpan is also not allowed on Singapore MRT ( mass rapid transportation). So even if I take it on the flight, I won't be able to take it further through MRT. It is becoming really hard for me to digest living without kirpan as I might be posted to Singapore permanently next month. Source: https://www.quora.com/Is-kirpan-allowed-in-Singapore-MRT. Can somebody please suggest how should I cope up with such situation? I have to travel next week. How do Amritdhari Sikhs in Singapore manage?

    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?
  19. sat sri akal. i've had a bit of a problem recently and i needed some help and i've been directed here. i'm planning on attending an amrit sanchar to be blessed with amrit in the summer and i'm also going to turn pro playing football professionally. where would i put my kirpan when i play? do i tie a small one around my neck or tie one around my thigh or keep one in my dastar? what do i do when i'm playing? thank you

    VJKK VJKF So sad to see... VJKK VJKF
  22. Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh. I recently purchased this Sri Sahib from India and have removed all it's packaging. I have a few questions regarding it's care. 1.) I have been oiling the blade with coconut oil once a month but because the bade is curved and circular (in width) how would I retain it's keenness? How can I sharpen it on a whetting stone? 2.) What do I polish the handle with? 3.) The bottom of the sheath is metal as well, how do I stop it from blackening and dulling; how do I keep it clean and polished? 4.) The sheath is similar to leather but stitched, any tips on taking care of it?
