Can One Be Shasterdhari Without Amrit?

Recommended Posts

My mamaji asked a Nihung Singh who showed us his collection of antique shaster, he also made shaster. His reply was simple, he said even if you haven't taken amrit, you can still be shastertari. If you can't protect someone else, you can at least protect yourself.

Either way, our goal is to take Amrit and adopt a GurSikhi life...Can we just agree there.

Well in my opinion, being shastardhari involves knowing how to use the weapons efficienntly in battle, which only comes through immense training, rather than just wearing them.

For answering your question, yes, anyone can be shastarsdhari, anyone can carry them, but a gursikh takes it one step further. He/she is a sant-sipahi, with b ot miri and piri, not just the shastar.

Being AMritdhari will put your mind into an advantageous position as you will have mental discipline over your five chor which can tip you over in battle to being reckless and therefore dangerous to yourself . Being a shasterdhari surely means being the best warrior you can be ...and I believe that history has shown that having amrit is an definite plus.
