Guru Gobind Singh Jee's Chand Shastar

Recommended Posts

Many people suspect the chand torra on the dumalla of Nihangs as a hindu symbol as the chand(moon) is linked to hindu demigod Shiva. But there is a Chand Shastar of Guru Gobind Singh Jee. It is kept at the Historical Gurdwara of Laxmipur, Bihar.

This is a sher panja shaster of Guru Sahib. This was worn around the knuckles as a knuckle buster, Laxmipur is a small village which has a lot of sikhs living in and around the village.

Unfortuntaely It's very hard to verify aunthentic Sikh Shastars , a lot of them have been stolen and sold to collectors by SGPC members and corrupt sevadaars. The weapons on display sometimes have clear signs of repair, welding, etc which brings their authenticity into doubt.

Weapons can get damaged or they could be turning blunt over time, which is why Shastars have sharpeners for themselves. If you went to Nankana Sahib, you'd barely see any of the stuff that the Guru actually used, (kitchen, farming materials, and his famous Shastar stick that nobody can see), Sikhs have a history of over-modernization for some reason, (compare that to Christians who still cherish stuff related to their pre-Jesus prophets).
