Ashtbhuj Duja Significance.

Recommended Posts

1.) What is the symbolic significance behind the Ashtbhuj/Astbhuj Duja?



2.) What is the history behind it? Do others exist?



3.) Any pre-Sikh era history behind it?

A gajgah is a dumala ornament just like in the last two photos of the above post. A ashtbuja is a battle standard for nishan Sahibs.

but but, it was also used by a singh as ornament on dumala i mean ashtbuja

The ashtbuja would not fit on a dastar. It's the size of a human face lol.

Gajgah and ashtbuja are two different things.

Wow!

My research indicates that both are two different things, but like that Baba Ji in the vid says the commonly held belief is that the Ashtbhuj was once worn in the same vogue as an Asthbhuj. How? That point also eludes me and what that would have looked like is also another enigma.

I too Belive they are two different things.

A person would have to wear a 10 foot tall dumala to put that on his dumala lol.

That picture I posted of Gyani Sher Singh Ji with the Ashtbhuj atop a flag indicates it's proper usage. But it is a very arcane shastar indeed.
