Kirpan - A Strapped sword, usually small in size is worn by the Sikh all the time. The message of Kirpan is to cut the attachments of ego regularly all the time.Let us see what Guruji explains about these attachments
such are the subtle bonds which bind him.
Man remains engrossed in women and playful pleasures;
the tumult of his passion is like the dye of the safflower, which fades away all too soon.
Says Nanak, seek God's Sanctuary, and your my and mine shall go away. 1
O mind: without the Lord,
The faithless cynic does those deeds
Acting in egotism saying mine mine, they carry the unbearable load.
When there is no love for the Naam, then these actions are useless.
The rope of death binds those who are in love with the sweet taste of Maya.
Deluded by doubt, they do not understand that God is always with them.
When their accounts are called for, they shall not be released;
their wall of mud (body)cannot be washed clean.
One who is made to understand ,
Says Nanak, that Gurmukh obtains immaculate understanding. 9
bonds are broken,so also desires and the karma’s are fritified;
Mind’s misdirection are removed, and ego (being separate from HIM) is effaced.
Everyone is subject to HIS Hukam (divine order); no one is out of Hukam.
Says Nanak, one who understands the Hukam ,does not say there is ego (separate identity).
By Guru's Grace, HE abides in the mind,
and egotism(separate Identity) is driven out.
Everything is God HIMSELF;
with ego (separate Identity) this cannot be said ( while looking at the world).
Through the Word of the Guru's Shabad, HE is recognised, and the pain of egotism is then gone
YOU YOURSELF are operating in all places
The mind which is outward focused in the world considers world to be the only reality and when the same mind sees the world with a view from inward focus the reality is different.
For simran to cut the bonds of ego links requires an element of strong faith in the Guru’s Word. The doubting mind ever is at its wits to unshake what we like to believe in. The Sikh takes the word of SGGS ji as absolute truth despite what the mind or senses may be showing initially.
What is true is true.
And Faith of a GurSikh is a total commitment to believe that words of Gurbani are true . Faith is thus having an intense conviction that what is believed to be true , is in fact true.
So whatever be your past experierence or what the mind may be telling you belive that HUKAM is prevailing everywhere and there is onlyONENESS. This faith then actually turns into an actual experience and the Sikh Feels and beholds oneness.
The message and purpose of Kirpan is to cut the Sikhs ego bonds and letting the GOD to dwell within the Siks’s mind.
Have a relationship with Kirpan and cut the ego bonds through Simran.
SEE the truth through words of Gurbani. Repeat Shabads again and again till the mind gets the message.
From saying Mine , Mine shift to Tera , Tera (YOURS, YOURS).
