Thanks for your reply veerji. I meant puratan shasters.

Benti to all the singhs especially the shasterdhari's to add their input to this thread.



For puratan shastars:


2.Pech kabaz


4.Many Chakaras

5.Rhino skin dhal


7.Two tabars(axes)


9.Teer Kaman(Bow and Arrow)


Do dumala shastars count as well?

A recurve bow with 80-150 lbs force with a good set of arrows

Gandasa or axe

AK santalee

'ruffle' .308/.300


All should be made out of strong, light and reliable steel. Currently I'm interested in Filipino blades a lot, some of them have similarities to Indo-Persian blades as well.

I really want a firangi as well, seems extremely practical in duels or hoseback.

Guru Gobind Singh Ji Maharajs command to all Singhs in his hukumnama, to give audience only with Panj Shastar on their person (one may say, at the least).

“Hathiaar panje banhe darsan aavana”

Malcolm refers to the tradition of Panj Shastar in 'Sketch of the Sikhs (1812)'. He says that during the Amrit Sanchaar, the Abilekee is given

"five weapons, a sword, a firelock, a bow and arrow, and a pike-were presented to the initiate”





What one understands from these and the historical mentions of Panj Shastar is that a ‘SINGH’ should always keep the sangat of shastar i.e. remain tyaar bar tyaar.

As per any historical or modern army, a soldier is not obsessed with what he likes, but rather keeps a well rounded arsenal. The observation by Malcolm and the many descriptions of the Khalsa Yudh ithihaas and paintings reflect the same. The Khalsa is armed for long range engagement, medium range and short range (hand to hand).

To just have lots of short range weapons makes no sense, as some would have you believe. One has a short dagger (Kataari, Kard, Chhoor etc). One has a sword (Shamshir, Tegha, Sirohi etc). One has medium engagement weapons i.e. Chakkar and Teer/Kamaan and very importantly long range (Tupak).

The military preparation of the Khalsa was like any other soldier past or present, well rounded and prepared for all forms of engagement.

The weapons do not have to be an exact type or name. The important thing is that you have the ability to fight at all levels and are armed as such. The Guru encouraged exploration in weaponry (especially foreign), you should not get obsessed with collecting Indo-Persian antiques, but rather use your valuable time and budget to learn the art of fighting and learn about modern blade/weapon culture world wide. Learn to find and get high quality weapons made which you use to practice with, which you test and don’t worry about being damaged.

Singhs of old, their highest value possession used to be their shastar, they would save for months or even longer, to get a custom made shastar to suit their need and feel. Today we look for the cheapest offers/deals. Would rather spend the money on a 60” TV or a Sports Car.

The above should hopefully give you a clue as to how a Singh should prepare himself.

A few Krav Maga or MMA classes is far from meeting your Guru’s martial tick box.

Ensure you make it your sport/hobby/passion, to learn how to engage at ‘all’ levels. Be well rounded in your martial ability.

ਇਹ ਬਿਧਿ ਅਨੰਦ ਦੁਧਰਖ ਭਟ ਜਦਿਨ ਸ਼ਸਤ੍ਰ ਗਹਮਿੱਕ ਹੈ

ਬਿਨ ਇਕ ਧੀਰਜ ਸੁਨਿ ਰੇ ਨ੍ਰਿਪਤ ਸੁ ਅਉਰ ਦੂਸਰਿ ਟਿੱਕ ਹੈ

i have around 2 swords and one small dagger mostly bought on ebay costing in and around 100 bucks (early 2000's). Not very learned about swords but they looks pretty old.. description says 100+ years in age. I don't know whether they are sikh based swords or not but they sure are asian ones. I always keep one in my room near by bed as I trust on sword more than on gun.

    • I am sure theres many sikh videos of weddings. Look at rainsbai weddings. Or akj weddings.        There is milni. As the girls side of the family is in charge of the venue. They get their earlier and prepare breakfast langar ( cha pakore etc). Then when the groom and his family come over. They meet each other outside the gurudwara in the parking lot. Ideally the girls family should be doing kirtan with vaja dholki of Aye Mil Gurshikh... as they welcome the grooms family. but if noone from the girls family is a musician, the two families can just greet each other with fateh. Then each of the relatives are introduced to their contrapart. The father meet the father in law. They can say fateh and give sarope to each other. Then the mothers, brothers, uncles, aunts. Then the grooms party is invited to eat langar ( i think they do this before matha teking and as they are sangat, they are allowed to eat first...i think) After langar, groom and his family go matha tek. The groom sits in front of the sangat where they do matha tek.  Then bride walks in. Matha teks, sits next to groom. The palla ardaas is done. Then the shabad about Pallai taindai laagee (or is shabad done before?) And then lavaan etc. 
    • I bet the saura/FIL was quiet before marriage because his wife and daughter made him. I can just imagine it: The MIL "dont start foolish arguments, let the girl be married off first, with your incessant talking and debates, you have alienated all of our neighbors and friends. Stay quiet and dont ruin the girls life!" I am terribly sorry to say theres only 2 ways two deal with these type of people. Be extra strict or humble.  1. The amritdhari person can just say I have taken amrit and vows to the panj pyare and I intend to live by them. I just do what my guru says and am too dumb to engage in debate with smart ppl like you. I dont intend to be a debator or scholar, so please leave me alone. I just want the happiness of my guru. Anytime, the FIL tries to start a debate, just say you are probably right and  i am not smart enough to debate and walk away.  2. Your amritdhari friend is a jija, a son in law. Tell him to use the power that position gives him. He is not a bahu to quietly take what the sass says. The father in law is interfering in his household and needs to be shown his place. The singh should say, i am an amritdhari and you knew this when you married ur daughter into this house. Either you and your daughter comply with my rehits and rules or you guys leave. For the guru, I am willing to destroy my marriage.  (If feels that is too harsh, he can add, I am not a tyrant, you can believe and do what you want. ) But there will be no guru nindya in my house. Your friend is the jawai/SIL. Tell him dont be afraid to make some threats and act tough. Inlaws should be wary of the SIL.  This may not seem like  the best thing to do for family relations,  but people like these actually respect power and tyranny only. The more kind and soft spoken you are, they will ride roughshod over you. You can read about a similar incident here:  https://www.gurmatbibek.com/contents.php?id=21
