    please tell me why some sikh youth of today walk around with large 'knife' looking kirpans and a 'bullit' type straps. I have also seen the Khanda designs using swords/bullits etc? :hmm:

    Guru Fateh ji.

    Kirpan is one of the 5 Ks (i.e. Kesh, Kara, Kangha, Kachera, Kirpan) of Khalsa, making it part of the uniform of Akaal Purakh ki Fauj.

    The "KIRPAAN" is NOT a "KNIFE" per se....just as the "sacrament" given in a Catholic Church is NOT a piece of bread....and the "Wine" is not reallyty the "WINE" one drinks in a Bar for example..

    The Sikh religion has TWO KIRPANS...One for MIRI - TEMPORAL WORLD and the Other for PIRI - For SPIRITUAL WORLD.

    The MIRI KIRPAAN is used to FIGHT INJUSTICE and for the UNDERDOG in the Battle field...The PIRI KIRPAAN is used to "BLESS" Sacred FOOD given out in the Presence of the GURU Granth Ji in a Gurdwara.

    Guur Hargobind JI, Sikhism's SIXTH Nanak wore these TWO KIRPAANS..and He BUILT the AKAL TAKHAT..seat of Sikhism's TEMPORAL POWERS right In front of the Harmandir sahib Built by His Father and Grandfather GUru Ramdass Ji and Guru Arjun JI which houses the SPIRITUAL HOME of Sikhism.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
