Khanda - The symbol of faith

Posted by
Chetan (Gurgaon, India) on 10 April 2019 in People & Portrait and Portfolio.

A symbol that is so famous worldwide. Khanda, the religious symbol of Sikhs, is powerful and beautiful at the same time.
The central double edged sword signifies truth, strength, freedom and justice.
The circle or chakkar represents the eternal. This is a symbol of all-embracing divine manifestation including everything and wanting nothing, without beginning or end, neither first or last, timeless, and absolute. The two swords of Miri and Piri represent political and spiritual sovereignty. -----------------------------------------------
