I have never heard or read about these rehats though. Anyways, thank you for posting...i will start my research on puratan Rehat Maryada again.

I wanted to get a book of Bhai Manvir Singh UK on Authentic Rehat Maryada which can be purchased from Khalsa Foundation Store but they don't export it. But they can deliver in Canada.

Bhaisaab, if you want to research more about Rehat Maryada...then do get that book and don't forget to share some valuable information from it : )

@dalsingh101

Is there a Rehatnama, which states that the Kirpan(along with the Gatra) must not be worn under the Chola?

But senior gursikhs do believe that kirpaan shouldn't be worn under the Chola/shirts/kurta, whatever one is wearing.

Please do try to find out, where they are getting this rule from.

Thanks

One it's too hard to draw quickly and two it does not represent the Khalsa publically.

I think also, there are times to hide your weapons until the right time, like when Sukha and Mehtab Singh went to see Massa Ranghar.

I probably read this in a blog. Bhai Sahib Jagtar Singh Ji (Late Jathedar of Gurmat Bibek Jatha) used to say that whenever one visits a gurudwara, a Sikh should make sure that his/her shastars are visible so that Guru sahib can see them.

And here's my opinion. I think a Sikh shouldn't hide his kirpan deliberately behind his/her chola or shirt to make sure that he stands out in the crowd.

I think it would be acceptable in these situations.

Do you have any idea of what these senior gursikhs make of the panj hathiar hukams? 

Never read or heard their comments on these. A little what I know is that puratan gursikhs of AKJ keep the dori shastars in their base keski with the kangha like Nihang Singhs.

I am not saying it's some kind of Rehat or a rule...i just wrote the views of puratan gursikhs (particularly AKJ and most probably Taksaal too has the same view)

Second one is valid and perhaps maybe the first point makes a Sikh kinda less tyar bar tyar.

Rest guru sahib knows well

Maybe that rule is mentioned in some Puratan Rehatnama. Please do try to find out.

I thought AKJ had its roots in Bhai Randhir Singh in the colonial period. I don't know how that could be classed as puraatan?

Bhai ji, obviously in purataan times Singhs had their many shasters visibly on their bodies (as all old imagery testifies). There was no need to specify this in any rahit. Hiding the shasters (or specifically ceremonial kirpaan) must be a modern thing, that especially developed in the diaspora, where these things would be more conspicuous, and more likely to produce a negative reaction (whether this be people feeling threatened or people bugging Singhs to see the kirpaan out of the sheath). I think the latter also made people come out with the thing about having to draw blood if drawing it out of the sheath?

That is probably a Puratan Maryada, to not take the Kirpan out of the Sheath for no purpose.

Gurparsaad, Daas will try to post the katha tidbit related to it.

It is possible that Sri Satguru jee gave permission to Sehajdhari Sikhs and Sikhs associated with Puratan Sampradas like Nirmale, Sewapanthis, etc, to keep their Shastars hidden. What do you think?

Nanaksar (which is related to the Nirmale Samprada) Singhs also mostly wear Kirpans underneath their Chole.

I think it's modern. We've looked at most if not all of the puraatan rahits, none of them say anything remotely similar.

All modern things in my opinion.

According to Bhai Daya Singh Rehatnama:

  • Singhs are suppose to keep a dagger on their heads.
  • Singhs are suppose to take a bath with milk, yoghurt and butter milk

 

@Trimandeep Singh

Does AKJ/Gurmat Bibek team follow the above Rehats?

 

Bhul chuk maaf

The below extract (Episode# 15) is from Sri Pracheen Panth Prakash:

The moghals had been using forms of canon and such, since Babur. I'm still not convinced yet that guns had become a norm by that time though. I haven't heard many instances in Sri Gur Panth Parkash of Sikhs using guns, but it would be interesting to see where and what time Bhai Ratta Singh Bhangu does mention them.

Here's another reference I found in Sainapati's SriGursobha (in the section describing the Chamkaur battle):

@paapiman Note another reference to panj hathiars too.

Panj hathiars are. Panj shasters is a phrase used to describe the 5 weapons dasmesh pita kept upon themselves daily (their set included a chakar that wasn't in the panj hathiars, dasmesh pita didn't adorn a spear). Sri Gursobha mentions them as well, and some of the extant hukamnamas from Banda Singh Bahadhur. Basically a lot of contemporary sources mention them. 

From Nabha's Mahan Kosh:

Interesting!
