15 posts in this topic

ਅਸ ਕ੍ਰਿਪਾਨ ਖੰਡੋ ਖੜਗ ਤੁਪਕ ਤਬਰ ਅਰੁ ਤੀਰ ॥ ਸੈਫ ਸਰੋਹੀ ਸੈਹਥੀ ਯਹੈ ਹਮਾਰੈ ਪੀਰ ॥੩॥

Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Waheguru ji ki Fateh !!!

Enjoy the 'darshan' of these Beautiful Shastars of the Guru Sahiban and other Historic Shastars.

Akal Takht Sahib - Preserved in the Akal Takht Sahib are the Historic shasters of Guru Sahiban and their beloved warriors.

Unlike the shasters displayed at Anandpur Sahib which are housed in a large windowed structure and can be viewed from all sides - the Shasters at Akal Takht Sahib are housed in a Gold Throne with latticed doors - though beautiful, it makes viewing the shasters difficult, and therefore they cannot be seen clearly or are missed by many of the sangat.

These shasters are ceremoniously displayed to the sangat after Rehras in the Akal Takht.

This beautiful collection of Shasters include The Meeri Peeri swords of Guru Hargobind Sahib- a sword of Guru Gobind Singh - daggers of the sahibzade Baba Ajit Singh and Baba Jujhar Singh - A 10 kilo sword of Bhai Bachitter Singh - A large Khanda of Baba Deep Singh - and a large Khanda of Baba Gurbaksh Singh.

one of the main insignia of the arrows of Guru Gobind Singh were they were gold tipped, these either were supposed to be gold tipped later and never got done, or have another story behind them.

Guru Gobind Singh Ji's arrows were tipped with gold, to pay for the funeral of the opposition soldier or to pay for treatment if the soldier survives, one aspect of how maharaj had so much pyaare for humanity even those who came to be his enemy.
