I decided to use dori for my kirpan.

I saw a YouTube video but I don't really understand it and it's too fast paced for me as a beginner.

Any tutorials?

A dori kirpan is against maryada. We should stay tyar bar tyar have a full size kirpan and should not fall for this dilution of Sikhi.

I have a kirpan, I just want to tie the dori (rope) on it.

I'd rather have replies with people who are offering help rather than telling me to change my maryada, thank you.

I see what you are talking about. 

Maybe this will help?

Or I saw one on instagram by Dilli_ke_dillwali. I’ll try to post that.

I am not trying to change anyones maryada, just want you to be aware of what the true maryada set by sahib sri guru gobind singh ji is. The rest is up to you, with what you want to do, I do not have a gun to force anyone to follow the real rehat.

Everyone claims to have their own version of the "true maryada" from the Guru, ironically, one persons true maryada conflicts with another.

Can you be specific about the maryada and source?

I take its not just your own interpretation of what tyar bar tyar means and the dori ban is mentioned somewhere by a reputable source?

Please do elaborate..

Why are so many people getting mad over this issue? Maryada is not set in stone like Gurbani is, Maryada is meant to change over time. The Khalsa Panth is built to function like a constantly evolving organism that adapts to the current age. Innovation must not be shunned, innovation (to Rehat, not Bani) is nesesary or else we lose.  

Akaaaaalo!

I think there needs to be a new rule in which the user who replies has to work with the original poster's question on their certain beliefs in rehat other than posting their own views.

Then go to sikhawareness where people with Gurmat thinking get sidelined. You will fit in perfectly over there.

Dories are worn when women plait their hair or tie their salwars with.  why would anyone dream of using dori for a kirpan? A kirpan is not a fashion accessory and dori should never be allowed on a kirpan because it feminizes it. A kirpan is gender neutral.

    • Monatosingh replied. The rope is strategic in many ways. Out in the wild and need to make weapons, you may need rope. Need to make a little makeshift roof, you need rope. Need to tie anything together for the purpose of surviving, you will always need rope.   Dori also saves the issue of gatra breaking, etc
    • Guru Nanak Dev Ji's Parkash is disputed between 3 Dates Friday, Katak Sudi 15 Pooranmashi, 1526 Bikrami (Lunar) Saturday, Vaisakh Sudi 3, 1526 Bikrami (Lunar) (Not Pooranmashi) Monday, 1 Vaisakh, 1526 Bikrami (Solar Date) (Pooranmashi) There is debate on this issue, I recommend reading the document mentioned in the OP. Also PLS, Benti for everyone, when referring to Gurpuabs, pls use Bikrami or Mool Nanakshahi (Which are basically Bikrami dates) dates, don't use English dates as they are not accurate as the original. We need more people to start using Desi Months and days, Barah Maha Parro!
    • Serious question though, how would one use a Dori Kirpan practically? Like how would it be used? I think thats why some people say its just for show because maybe you can't use it well? I wouldn't know.
    • Sometimes we use the phrase "Just do it" in the Dojo. Other times we say "Shut up and train".  Heh. 
    • Exactly. Oh, so it's not a made-up saakhi? Even if it were, it would be good. It sounds vaguely like the saakhi of Bhai Banno. I agree that it is unreasonable to demand discounts of shopkeepers because "it's for a religious purpose". They can't verify that. You're trading on your long beard to make the other guy think you're "religious". You're just setting it up for unscrupulous people with beards to come by and abuse it, which then gets found out, and then people lose faith in Sikhs and Sikhi. On the other hand, it would be OK for a gurdwara to put out the call for construction materials, legal services, accounting services, medical services (free medical camps). Then people can verify it's for a religious purpose because they're giving directly to the gurdwara. And then sawmill owners can drop off wood at the gurdwara, marble showroom owners can drop off marble, etc. Or people in fields not in demand can buy the stuff (possibly at cost) and have it delivered to the gurdwara.
