Khanda Tattoo with Om (2012)

Khanda is one of three and most important symbols of Sikhism. Khanda is commonly called the Sikh coat of arms, or “Khalsa Crest”. This symbol has three major parts in it. Two swords which signify the spiritual and secular forces influencing the soul, a double edged sword symbolizes the ability of truth to cut through the duality of illusion and a circlet represents unity, a sense of being at one with infinity. One can see Khanda symbol on Sikhs’ religious flags, temples and religious books. Khanda is often worn as a reminder that Sikhs have a warrior in them who fought against injustice in the past.

Om is considered the most sacred, powerful Hindu mantra and it encompasses everything in the universe.
