If you do put kachere in machine, there shud be no dastars in the load.

It is best to wash them with hand though.

That is an important point to watch

I suppose wearing red kahera is also bamanvad as hanuman had a red langot LOL.gif so no red kacheras LOL.gif

People who dont have detergent at home can wear black or dark brown kacherey as white will look dirty unless washed with proper SABAN LOL.gif

i feel i should clarify what i said...

what i meant is that sikhi does not begin and end at rehit maryaada....

no one can really say that rehit is unimportant, because discipline is definitely important... we all understand that rehit maryada is literally a set of actions or what not that are to help us remain in the rememberance of death.... hence rehit = to be in.. mar = death.. yada = rememberance of.

HOWEVER, that being said, saying that sikhi is limited rehit maryada isn't entirely fair and isn't entirely true.... there are things we do outside of these prexribed rules that can be extremely beneficial for your sikhi, that doesn't make it anti-rehit....

please refrain from Guru Gobind Singh Ji quotes about rehit pyaaree mujh ko sikh pyaara naahin, cuz if you DO providec me witht hat quote, you're essentially telling me that you're not going to read what i jus wrote...

i am by no means belittling rehit, because in my eyes, theres more to our gursikhi jeevan than JUST rehit... i'm positive that i'm bound t oface criticism, or people will not understand what i'm trying to say and will twist and nitpick my words to make it look like i've said something blasphemous.

As an amritdhari, i understand the importance of rehit, i agree there is need... but what i sincerely believe is that your sikhi should NOT be defined by the rehit you follow..

Sure. Very funny. Kaschera is different from langoat. Langoat is like dhoti. Red kaschera? What does cleaning have to do with kaschera color. All need to be cleaned properly. Hand wash cleans better and you do it right away. I don't like pink color. Also when we go to the Gurudwara. We don't go in kashera only. Hanuma never wore and kashera. Him getting langoat only is a joke. That is all he got from raam chander? Of course it is brahmanvaad. All colors belong to Akaal. No color is bad! All colors are good. Akaal Takht maryada says wear any color. Only brahmanvaadi pujaris say white kaschera only. Sprry if I made you feel bad but it is a fact and facts are facts. However, I know you and your white kascheriaans will never listen or understand.

No harm in throwing them in the machine.

Only thing I would suggest (as has been said before) don't put in any keskis or dastaars with a load that has kacherras or pyjamas.

Also, make sure you fully open the kacherra up and don't leave it bunched up when you throw it in. It can be cleaned better when it's open.

Sat Sri Akal:

"However, I know you and your white kascheriaans will never listen or understand. "

Ah yes, now Sikhs will have Jathae based on the Kachera color...kinda like gang colors, but, of course, in Kacherae:

Jathedar ms514 SatRang Kachera Wala, Jilla Kuthapoori, Yuba City, CA.

And of course, when one Kachera Jatha meets another Jatha, a long and pointless discussion about theeir Maryadas will commence, leaving both parties having learned nothing except hatred for the other's Kachera color. Then, both parties will set up websites and discussion forums and make topics against each other with titles like:

"SKW (SatRang Kacherae Walae) Jatha Is Anti-Gurmat!!!"

and

"GKW (Gorae Kacherae Walae) Are All Pakhandis!!!"

    • 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!
