Guru Gobind Singh Ji instructed the Singhs with five core Rehats:

ਸ਼ਸਤ੍ਰ ਮੇਲ ਗੁਰ ਸਬਦ ਸੋ, ਕਛ ਕੇਸਨ ਸਦ ਪ੍ਰੇਮ ।
[Always] stay with your Weapons [shastar] and the Guru's Word [Shabad], always have love for your Kachera [undergarment] and Kes [uncut hair].

ਕਰਦ ਰਾਖਨੀ ਪੰਚ ਏ, ਤਜੈ ਨ ਕਬ ਹੀ ਨੇਮ ।
Keeping a Karad [small dagger] is the fifth [commandment/rehat], do not abandon these in your daily discipline.
