No this is not true, there are only 3 times where someone can take out their Kirpan from their sheath, 1. To defend your self or someone else, 2. To clean it or something like that, 3. To do bhog of karah prasad.

So my cousin who has Kirpan on him told me that he cannot pull it out because if he does he will have to shed blood with it or cut himself with it. Is this true?

I’ve heard this before, but never saw anywhere in Maryada or Rehatnama where this is written.

thank you for the clarification, i have a feeling that my cousin was told this by my granny, i know she means well but she even tells me somethings regarding Sikhi that don't make sense or have basis in Sikhi like she has told me tht i should sleep on the side so when i wake up the first thing i will see is picture of Guru Gobind Singh Ji.

Sikhs shouldn’t have any pictures of the Gurus if we are going according to Gurmat. In fact, the Mughal records of Sikhs stated that at our Gurdwaras, there weren’t any pictures of the Gurus.

I don't see an issue with Gurus' pictures.

All of the Gurus pictures are not real, once Guru Sahib had a painter who could paint most of Guru Sahib on his canvas, but when Guru Sahib’s face came the Painter couldn’t even see the face. Guru Sahib then explained that he isn’t the body, but rather the spirit. Guru Sahib finished the painting though. 
 

I don’t think the Bhai Sobha Singh’s paintings are legit. Nanaksar is a bit closer, as Baba Nand Singh saw Guru Sahib.

Many people bow to pictures of the gurus which is wrong and it is idolatry and why would you have a picture of the guru if the guru is already in there, see Guru Granth Sahib Ji as Guru Gobind Singh Ji, Guru Granth Sahib Ji has the light of the 10 gurus in them, why would you need a picture to represent the 10 gurus if they are already here?

I have been told that Mahapurkh Sant Kishan Singh ji of Rara Sahib told Sangat in UK that Bhai Sobha Singh ji's pictures were the best representation of what the Gurus looked like.

    • was researching this and came back to this thread. Also found an older thread:    
    • Net pay after taxes. If you don't agree, think about this: If you were a trader and started off in China with silk that cost 100 rupees and came to India, and you had to pay total 800 rupees taxes at every small kingdom along the way, and then sold your goods for 1000 rupees, you'd have 100 rupees left, right? If your daswandh is on the gross, that's 100 rupees, meaning you have nothing left. Obviously, you owe only 10% of 100, not 10% of 1000. No, it's 10% before bills and other expenses. These expenses are not your expenses to earn money. They are consumption. If you are a business owner, you take out all expenses, including rent, shop electricity, cost of goods sold, advertising, and government taxes. Whatever is left is your profit and you owe 10% of that.  If you are an employee, you are also entitled to deduct the cost of earning money. That would be government taxes. Everything else is consumption.    
    • No, bro, it's simply not true that no one talks about Simran. Where did you hear that? Swingdon? The entire Sikh world talks about doing Simran, whether it's Maskeen ji, Giani Pinderpal Singh, Giani Kulwant Singh Jawaddi, or Sants. So what are you talking about? Agreed. Agreed. Well, if every bani were exactly the same, then why would Guru ji even write anything after writing Japji Sahib? We should all enjoy all the banis. No, Gurbani tells you to do Simran, but it's not just "the manual". Gurbani itself also has cleansing powers. I'm not saying not to do Simran. Do it. But Gurbani is not merely "the manual". Reading and singing Gurbani is spiritually helpful: ਪ੍ਰਭ ਬਾਣੀ ਸਬਦੁ ਸੁਭਾਖਿਆ ॥  ਗਾਵਹੁ ਸੁਣਹੁ ਪੜਹੁ ਨਿਤ ਭਾਈ ਗੁਰ ਪੂਰੈ ਤੂ ਰਾਖਿਆ ॥ ਰਹਾਉ ॥ The Lord's Bani and the words are the best utterances. Ever sing hear and recite them, O brother and the Perfect Guru shall save thee. Pause. p611 Here Guru ji shows the importance of both Bani and Naam: ਆਇਓ ਸੁਨਨ ਪੜਨ ਕਉ ਬਾਣੀ ॥ ਨਾਮੁ ਵਿਸਾਰਿ ਲਗਹਿ ਅਨ ਲਾਲਚਿ ਬਿਰਥਾ ਜਨਮੁ ਪਰਾਣੀ ॥੧॥ ਰਹਾਉ ॥ The mortal has come to hear and utter Bani. Forgetting the Name thou attached thyself to other desires. Vain is thy life, O mortal. Pause. p1219 Are there any house manuals that say to read and sing the house manual?
    • All of these are suppositions, bro. Linguists know that, generally, all the social classes of a physical area speak the same language, though some classes may use more advanced vocabulary. I'm talking about the syntax. That is, unless the King is an invader, which Porus was not. When you say Punjabi wasn't very evolved, what do you mean? The syntax must have been roughly the same. As for vocabulary, do you really think Punjabis at the time did nothing more than grunt to express their thoughts? That they had no shades of meaning? Such as hot/cold, red/yellow/blue, angry/sweet/loving/sad, etc? Why must we always have an inferiority complex?
    • I still think about that incident now and then, just haven't heard any developments regarding what happened, just like so many other things that have happened in Panjab!
