Dumalla Chand and Sringaar


Recommended Posts

Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh

Sangat Ji, Maharaaj Kirpa I have recently started tying a dumalla as opposed to an African style pagh. Would it be for an 'average' Sikh to wear a Chand and Sringaar in their Dumalla? I say 'average' as I don't consider myself a Nihang Singh, I just love their roop that Dasmeh Patshah has blessed us with.

Of course you can wear it!
Shastars are not limited to a certain Samparda/Jathebandi.

Nihang Singh or not, you can wear any shastar you like and no one will say anything. If they do, just ignore them.

 

Thanks for your response Singh. I had thought was the case, I just wanted to make sure there wasn't any special significance to them like there is with the farla.

More important than displaying shastar or aad Chand etc on dumallas is learning how to use shastar, shastar abiyaas, shastar vidiya, jungi vidiya.

Don't become a paper Kkalsa like the sad reality of amritdharees today, walking around with stylised dumallas even wearing chakkars etc... but their kirpans and Sri sahib's are blunt and nothing more than ceremonial...majority of them have absolutely no idea how to utilise these shastar.

Even though combat training and Shastar vidiya is a compulsory part of Khalsa maryada it is sadly neglected, to the point of near extinction...

I do agree with you that walking around with a kirpan as a talisman with no respect at all for it as a weapon is stupid. 

I would, however, add the caveat that I don't think that you have to be the absolute best swordfighter in the world, bar none, in order to carry a kirpan at all. (Though I don't think you were taking it that far.)
