The tradition of keeping the kirpaan along with the groom during the wedding is an important part of sikh wedding rituals. The groom is considered to be as a king and the sword is taken as the symbol of its grandeour, keeping it as a weapon. The word kirpaan comprises of two words- kripa means mercy , blessing , kindness and grace of waheyguru ji and Aan refers to the honour, prestige, dignity , righteousness and respect. Here the kirpaan works not as the mean of aggression but as a meaning of defending the defenceless. Basically, it connotes to the philosophy of respect for material arts and weapons.
