Vaheuguru Ji Ka Khalsa

Vaheuguru Ji Ke Fateh

I wear my dastaar all the time, though sports, at home, just all day, I try to treat it was repect as my other kakkars. But the problem is I feel guilty taking it off at night, but its not comfortable sleeping with it on, are dumallas more comfortable while sleeping? Some have suggested me that I should just wear a patka, but then why dont we just wear a patka through the day, then other have said saroopa then y don we just wear that through the day. So can you please tell me how you taking care of your hair at night, or your identity?

No offence Singh but are we just running out of topics? We've been through the kachera topic, and now this. I'm assuming the idea for this topic came from that one. Just the karda and kanga topics remain now.

Some have suggested me that I should just wear a patka, but then why dont we just wear a patka through the day, then other have said saroopa then y don we just wear that through the day.

Why don't we wear our pajamas in the day? Why is the color of the sky blue?

Lets make the best use of these forums with legitimate and intellectual topics for a change.

So can you please tell me how you taking care of your hair at night, or your identity?

Kurdi wahlaya nay raat nu dekhan aohna? Relax, don't lose sleep over it.

you have every right to ask these questions over here. I think cantlogin is just making sure that we should think too much about these issues instead we should look inside of us and try to improve ourself at other fronts also.

Well I dont know if I m right or wrong but I feel more comfortable in patka. I wear patka at home but dastar if I go out.

Patka is extremely confortable while sleeping. Earlier I use to tie both...that is a home turban with patka underneath. That idea is also not bad. U can do that i think.

Forgive me for my mistakes.

Waheguru ji ka khalsa,

Waheguru ji ki fateh.

It is not acceptable to wear a Patka when sleeping. The Patka is a new invention. The Keski has been in vogue since the times of the Gurus.

If your Keski comes out in the night you needs to make it longer, you should tie it lower on your forehead. Two larrs is barely acceptable for a Keski. The more larrs the firmer it is. You could even tie two Keskis. Your Jurra should be quite firm. Your Keski does not even have to be tight to go to sleep but if it is tied correctly it will not come off.

It is not acceptable to sleep bareheaded. The Khalsa is Tyaar-Bar-Tyaar at all times.

    • Definitely the Guru Sahibs would be a heavier Scriptures to handle. Dasam Granth is more towards Bir Rass, Guru Gobind Singh showed his Greatness (of course, they would never say this) by separating his own Baania.  And the BIGGEST test of all?? Do we try and read Dasam Granth, Understand n show respect like we do to SGGS? Or... Do we QUESTION it? Guru Gobind Singh Ji is testing us. 
    • My wife will be going for an MRI scan next week but her Kara won’t physically come off.  Is there any way the mri scan can be done with the Kara still on?  The alternative is we will have to try to saw it off before the scan.  
    • 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?
