"With Great Intellect, Meditate on Weapons" - Gurbilas Patshahi 10 [1797]⁣

Urging everyone to follow @sikharmory , follow, subscribe and take notes, the tradition of meditating and studying weapons is well documented from precolonial sources. In this passage below, after creating the Khalsa Guru Gobind Singh mandates them to read and study Gurbani but also to contemplate upon weapons with great intellect. ⁣

ਪੋਥੀ ਗ੍ਰਿੰਥ ਮਹਲੁ ਦਸ ਬਾਨੀ । ਸੋਧ ਲਹੋ ਪਦ ਜੋ ਨਿਰਬਾਨੀ । ਸਸਤ੍ਰ ਅਸਤ੍ਰ ਸਿਮਰਹੁ ਬਰ ਬੁਧਾ । ਖਲ ਦਲੁ ਸਾਥ ਕਰੋ ਨਿਤ ਜੁਧਾ ।53। ⁣

"Reflect upon the writings of the Ten Gurus in the Pothi/Granth Sahib if you wish to attain liberation, and, meditate with great intellect upon weapons (bladed & projectiles), forever battle against the army of the wicked. ⁣

ਰਾਜ ਜੋਗ ਤੁਮ ਕੌ ਮੁਹਿ ਦੀਨਾ । ਪਰਮ ਜੋਤਿ ਸੰਗਿ ਪਰਚੋ ਕੀਨਾ । ਸੰਤ ਸਮੂਹਨ ਕੋ ਸੁਖ ਦੀਜੈ । ਅਚਲੁ ਰਾਜ ਧਰਨੀ ਮਹਿ ਕੀਜੈ ।54।⁣

I have given you all the status of the Detached King [Raj-Jog], see the Highest-Light [the Divine] within all. Give peace and comfort to all the Saints in the world, and in this way you will establish the Eternal-Kingdom on Earth."
