Shastars

There were over 100 different weapons placed before the Siri Guru Granth Sahib for the wedding Gurdwara. Seeing them before Guruji made me think of Guru Gobind Singh.

    All i can say is i have streams of tears rolling down my eyes. What
    can i say, Vaheguru Ji you are infinite!

    May Sikhs such as these be an example to all of us. Khalsa Ji,
    let this be a very beautiful lesson for all of us. This is HOW a
    wedding should be!

    I don’t think its acceptable to place weapons in front of a holy book. Its disgusting, regardless of who the weapons belong to. Rather, a museum is a better place to display historical items.

    Thanks

    weapons are a great part of sikhism we can never protect anyone if we can not learn from our peers our shastars.  I love shastars I love them so much thank you for bringing back the shastars to sikhi and our culture.
