    Pray Truth for all and say Satsriakal!
    Dear All!

    Sikhs, strictly Amritdhaaree Sikhs, wear five Kakaars. One of those is a sword (Kirpaan).

    Gurdev gave Sikhs Kirpaan as one of the Kakaars.

    Sikhs keep Kirpaan in a sheath with a belt (Gaatraa).

    My question is this. Why and how the practice of wearing sheath and Gaatraa started? Is this practice from Guru Ji's time?

    Please express your views.
