“The life of the world (i.e., the Guru) would go hunting with many warriors, all-armed with various weapons. The Guru would pit warriors armed with swords and shields against each other. Warriors of varied skill would practise with the ‘katar’ (punch dagger) by themselves. One Singh, taking a musket, with fear and respect in his heart, would seek out a tiger. This is how the compassionate charitable [Guru] would set up his ‘Yudh Akhara’ (martial training school) in the jungle.”


This is a truly panthic effort, we would be honoured to add your findings here. Please provide the exact reference and content in either Gurmukhi or English. Puraatan ithihaas, puraatan rehit or Gurbaani is foundational. But if you have any other useful and relevant references we will certainly consider it.
