Few questions on Hazoor sahib

Recommended Posts

I consider myself fortunate to live in same state as hazur sahib . Hazur sahib is 12 hour drive from my home and 9 hour by train journey. Hope to visit it soon .  

But before that I have a few questions on the different maryada in hazur sahib, and in the way the sikhs there worship.

1) Why does the main sewadar singh (currently Bhai Kulwant Singh ji) wrap a sheet of cloth around their body over their chola ? What is the meaning of it ? Its very much like nirmala sikh, except the sewadar singh wears a decorative one

2) Why do they hold what looks to me like an arrow with mini-kirpan head while doing ardas and later take wash it in water from godavari river and add that "blessed water" to kadah prasad ?

3) Why does the door to inner chamber (angitha sahib) is opened only after ardas at around 6 am in the morning and after ardas as the door is opened, the singh who did ardas rings bells vigorously with both hands . What is significance of this ?

4) Why does the singh in above pic (the main sewadar) once come outside the angitha sahib, lowers the purdah and rings bell , then once again lifts the purdah and goes in again . What is meaning of this ?

I get a live telecast from hazur sahib on tv . I tend to wake up at 5.30 just to see all of this rituals, but I never understand what do they mean and whence they're doing it ?

With all due respect to Sri Hazur sahib and maryada.

I'm fascinated by the Hazur Sahib maryada, especially the arti. Unchanged for hundreds of years.

Best thing to do is ask the sevadars when you visit Hazur Sahib... Baba Kulwant Singh & the other Decani Singhs are very approachable
