  1. Possibly the Chef has been disrespectful, but when I was at school for sports, I would cover my Kara with a wristband to be safer to myself and others. He says he "was afraid to approach Herbert during work and the length I was employed and ask him why I am not allowed to wear this Sikh bangle.’ Wonder if the Sikh tried to educate the Chef? And if the Chef had safety concerns, would it not be acceptable to cover the Kara to safeguard against accidents? I know Singhs working in factories tie beard to prevent getting caught etc https://metro.co.uk/2021/09/23/michelin-star-che
  2. Does abyone wear large (thick, chunky) sarbloh karas as opposed to the normal thin ones? Seeking sangats experiences, are there people who wear them all the time and keep them on at all times? Has anyone had any issues going through airports? Do they need to be removed if a certain size? What about at work? Whilst it doesnt matter what people think and always have to explain etc. Should there be consideration for the size of the kara?
  3. Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh everyone! I'm from Malaysia and it's lockdown again here until December Though I am not an amritdhari, I really want to purchase the simarna beads kara (im not sure if this is what you call it)( see the picture below), I see many steel ones on the internet but I would prefer the sarabloh one.my only option is to buy it online but I cannot find it anywhere in any online store. Can the sangat help me? I found this item on eBay but the currency here is different and I will have to pay quite a lot of money. I am also not sure if they sell it i
  4. Some years back, I bought a kara with mantra written on the kara from Nankana Sahab, Pakistan. I want to know whether this kara the small one is real or fake. And is it made of steel? Should i wear small or the big thick kara. ?
  5. I forewarn you, some Jathebandi fanboys will find this insulting: The Five Kakkars. Tradition expounds that when the valorous Bhai Jaita brought Guru Teghbahadur Ji’s head to the young Guru Gobind Rai, the latter Guru exhorted emotional restraint. After debriefing Jaita as to the situation in Delhi, where the senior Guru was martyred, the Guru inquired as to the numeric presence of the Sikhs in the city. Jaita replied that though many were present, no conspicuous markers distinguished them from other non-Sikh citizens as long hair was retained by a majority of citizens irrespective
  6. Where can I buy a longer Kachera (Kachera for Chola) Online??
  7. I study religions as I find they all have valuable lessons and during one of those periods I recognized that the bracelet a certain client of mine wears on his right wrist is a kara. I asked him if that was indeed what it was, and he said yes and told me the meaning of it. I told him that was what I heard it meant and that the idea of it is utterly beautiful to me, even though I am Christian. He said that Sikhs generally do not mind if others wear the kara respectfully and that the next time I saw him he would give me my own, which really touched me- he wears the really thick iron type In li
  8. WJKK WJKF, Does any one work in metal? I need a kara made. I just want a kara which in cross-section is an equilateral triangle, no rims, no ridges, no grooves, large but not too large and just plain smooth all round.
  9. Vaheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Vaheguru Ji Ki Fateh, I don't know if I understand this correctly or not, but from what I understand, a beadbi is an insult to a kakar, the saroop of Guru Sahib, kesh, etc. Am I correct in this understanding? If I am, I was just wondering what would constitute a beadbi to the kara? I'm asking this so that when I do decide to wear a kara, I will know what not to do (I already don't smoke, drink alcohol, do drugs, gamble, etc.). Thank you for your replies. Gurfateh, Justin

    Kara At Work

    WJKK WJKFateh, I'll be starting a new job at the end of February in a hospital. They need you to be bare below the elbows. If I'm told to take my kara off (for safety or hygiene), is there any reason I can give for keeping it on? Thank youuu
  11. My friend is Chinese Buddhist, but he doesn't practice. I've known him since middle school. I've been teaching him about Sikhi, and I took him to gurdwara. He said he wouldn't mind becoming a Sikh, but I don't know how serious he is because he is not a very religious person in general. He's been asking me for a Kara, so he can wear it. Is there anything wrong with this?
  12. Wahegurujikakhalsawahegurujikifateh, Does anyone know the history behind Jamdhaar Karas? When were they first produced? Were they in use prior to 1469? Is their a specific rehat regarding them? Are they widely available or are they simply custom made? Wahegurujikakhalsawahegurujikifateh
  13. Working with many Sikh children, I have noticed that they are still taking off there Kara's for PE at school and then forgetting to put them back on / losing them etc. I have decided to have manufactured SINGH and KAUR sweatbands, so that the Kara is protected at schools when doing PE, the children are being encouraged to use and be proud of there Surnames, and by being orange in colour, raising awareness of the issues happening around Bhai Rajoana Ji. Firstly, any objections to the idea of these sweatbands by anyone ? Secondly, if you wish to order for camps / prizes / gifts etc, then only
