Mmmmmm I think it’s ok to use a washing machine, many Gursikhs I know do this, though washing it via hand is convenient in the sense that after your ishnaan just give it a wash and a rinse and leave it to dry

Also on the topic of kashereh is it ok to remove them during sexual intercourse? Someone asked me this and I said I presume it isn’t because as a Kakaar it is never meant to leave our body right? Even during ishnaan it’s not removed so I doubt it would be allowed to be taken off during intercourse? Someone else said it was fine to do so however so we were really no help to the person

don't forget that sikhi's not about following a standard set of rules... i mean, obviously to an extent it is.... but we can't tell people that sikhi is practical if we don't believe it ourselves...

i'm not going to get into details, but let's jus say uhh..movement ....uhh..would be slightly.....restricted....

if you couldn't take your kachhera off...... i meean, unless you wanna like... tie it around one leg or somethin, i donno... but seriosuly, that's jus getting a lil bit TOOO much into detail :)

I must firstly disagree with japman, that sikh actully does follow a set of strict rules , very stict rules actuially. A kashera should eb washed by hand in my opinion , it is discipline the only reason you wouldn't wash it by hand is if your lazy , you wouldn't wsh just a kashera in the washing machine and it's unlikely you would haeva washing load everyday , that could mean you leaving your dirty kashera for a few days before it's wshed , thats not acceptable. Scoendly in resposne to anjaans post , a kashera must never be taken off completly , even when having intercourse it must not be removed completley ever. you should never put raas of flesh above your devotion for Guru ji

I agree 100% with Japmans. We are too worried and entangled in Rehat Maryadas, when we fail to do the simple and important things (ie following what we read everyday in the Guru Granth Sahib)

rehat is essential without it you can't even call yourself a SIKH. Guru Gobind Singh Ji made that very clear. So all you lazy people who can't be asked to keep rehit and say "we just follow whats in Guru Granth sahib "" you need to wake up and smell the coffee cause your running on the spot and will not progress in your Sikhi.

    • was researching this and came back to this thread. Also found an older thread:    
    • Net pay after taxes. If you don't agree, think about this: If you were a trader and started off in China with silk that cost 100 rupees and came to India, and you had to pay total 800 rupees taxes at every small kingdom along the way, and then sold your goods for 1000 rupees, you'd have 100 rupees left, right? If your daswandh is on the gross, that's 100 rupees, meaning you have nothing left. Obviously, you owe only 10% of 100, not 10% of 1000. No, it's 10% before bills and other expenses. These expenses are not your expenses to earn money. They are consumption. If you are a business owner, you take out all expenses, including rent, shop electricity, cost of goods sold, advertising, and government taxes. Whatever is left is your profit and you owe 10% of that.  If you are an employee, you are also entitled to deduct the cost of earning money. That would be government taxes. Everything else is consumption.    
    • No, bro, it's simply not true that no one talks about Simran. Where did you hear that? Swingdon? The entire Sikh world talks about doing Simran, whether it's Maskeen ji, Giani Pinderpal Singh, Giani Kulwant Singh Jawaddi, or Sants. So what are you talking about? Agreed. Agreed. Well, if every bani were exactly the same, then why would Guru ji even write anything after writing Japji Sahib? We should all enjoy all the banis. No, Gurbani tells you to do Simran, but it's not just "the manual". Gurbani itself also has cleansing powers. I'm not saying not to do Simran. Do it. But Gurbani is not merely "the manual". Reading and singing Gurbani is spiritually helpful: ਪ੍ਰਭ ਬਾਣੀ ਸਬਦੁ ਸੁਭਾਖਿਆ ॥  ਗਾਵਹੁ ਸੁਣਹੁ ਪੜਹੁ ਨਿਤ ਭਾਈ ਗੁਰ ਪੂਰੈ ਤੂ ਰਾਖਿਆ ॥ ਰਹਾਉ ॥ The Lord's Bani and the words are the best utterances. Ever sing hear and recite them, O brother and the Perfect Guru shall save thee. Pause. p611 Here Guru ji shows the importance of both Bani and Naam: ਆਇਓ ਸੁਨਨ ਪੜਨ ਕਉ ਬਾਣੀ ॥ ਨਾਮੁ ਵਿਸਾਰਿ ਲਗਹਿ ਅਨ ਲਾਲਚਿ ਬਿਰਥਾ ਜਨਮੁ ਪਰਾਣੀ ॥੧॥ ਰਹਾਉ ॥ The mortal has come to hear and utter Bani. Forgetting the Name thou attached thyself to other desires. Vain is thy life, O mortal. Pause. p1219 Are there any house manuals that say to read and sing the house manual?
    • All of these are suppositions, bro. Linguists know that, generally, all the social classes of a physical area speak the same language, though some classes may use more advanced vocabulary. I'm talking about the syntax. That is, unless the King is an invader, which Porus was not. When you say Punjabi wasn't very evolved, what do you mean? The syntax must have been roughly the same. As for vocabulary, do you really think Punjabis at the time did nothing more than grunt to express their thoughts? That they had no shades of meaning? Such as hot/cold, red/yellow/blue, angry/sweet/loving/sad, etc? Why must we always have an inferiority complex?
    • I still think about that incident now and then, just haven't heard any developments regarding what happened, just like so many other things that have happened in Panjab!
