Bit of a tangent but Samurai armor is not designed to keep you from dying. It's designed to keep you from dying to arrows so you can live to die properly to melee weapons.

It aint of topic mate.I said shastars could be any shastars.I also like those samurai katana swords infact im thinking of getting atleast one.If some relative or friend or even i myself go to japan the first thing theyll hv to do is buy a katana for mee.I also really like those samurai helmets they r very ornate,cute and beautiful.

Isit I didnt know that, their helmets look really cool.   Iv read abit about samurai culture and they believed in dying in the battle field as the best way of dying. 

A lot of them were also against getting modern weapons when the Americans came.  A bit similar to akalis.

Many old warrior traditions have many things in common.

Samurai armour was really quite deceptive when it came down to appearance, it looks really fragile and not fit for purpose, but was extremely tough.  The Samurai developed a special lacquer which was used to toughen natural materials.  This enabled the armour to retain toughness and lightweight properties which enabled the Samurai to move with speed and agility.  They wore face masks that were intended to frighten the enemy whilst masking ones own expressions during battle.

    • Suleman reminds me of the vampires from the movie interview with the vampire! The vampires are sad and lonely, wondering around aimlessly, century after century and not able to free themselves from their bodies! Suleman says the same thing, how people in the joon of ghosts wonder around without aim and they feed on filth and rot. 
    • Its been 10 days since you posted this I wanted to welcome you too. It's always never late. I am a little new too so welcome to this amazing website where we can talk about our problems or ask reasonable questions. I hope you'll take as much laha and learn something from here. Have a blessed day ahead! 🌻✨
    • Jaggi aside, none of the above really contradicts Sikhi, because it's knowledge from the Vedic granths that even our gianis and parcharaks have to study for a grounding in Dharmic philosophy.  I know that if Sikh parchaar occasionally veered towards this really interesting type of spiritual and holistic approach it would attract many lapsed Punjabis, particularly those raised in the West, who currently feel quite disconnected and adrift but can't quite put their finger on how to get themselves out of various ruts and troughs. It might also help warding off the vulture-like attention of other faiths seeking easy converts. Our history and the malign affects of Brahmanical mischief are essential to understand who we are, where we came from, and why we're in the shape we currently are, but some deeper theory of how the individual can enact day-to-day positive spiritual change, is needed for those who are a little more thoughtful and inquisitive.
    • I don't know but at times if I have done a mistake, I really feel guilty and bad and I really wish to repent it. I deserve to apologise to you because I definitely have done a mistake. Maharaj kirpa karan sab de upar
