Steel's energies are highly projective. If you are looking to protect yourself from aggressive advance or any forms of extreme negativity, stainless steel is a good option. Having, wearing or keeping steel close at hand, offers us strength, courage, grit and determination.
The Khanda / Adi Shakti is a symbol of infinity. It relates to primal creative power and has three parts to its design:
The Chakra is a circle, also a symbol of infinity and reminder that God’s infinite nature, has no beginning or end. To the extent one understands the creation as a reflection of the Creator, a circle can be seen to reflect the oneness and unity of mankind in essence, regardless of apparent differences of race, religion or gender.
The Khanda is the double-edged central dagger, representing the straight and narrow path of righteousness, the razor’s edge that cuts both ways – in that what you do to others you are actually doing to your Self. In yogic terms, the khanda represents neutral mind – the ability to make non-reactive decisions.
The two Kirpans are curved single-edged knives on both sides of the symbol and represent the polarities that need to be balanced by neutrality: temporal and spiritual, negative and positive, etc. In yogic terms, these two kirpans represent the negative and positive minds. Guru Hargobind (one of the founders of Sikhism) wore two swords, signifying Miri – political or temporal power, and Piri – spiritual sovereignty.
