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.

If you dont have advice for me then just stick to your intellectual topics.

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.

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.

It is irrelevant what your Panj Pyare told you. A Patka is certainly not what Puratan Singhs or Guru Sahib wore so there is no reason for you to change the headgear of the Khalsa from anything other than a turban.

A keski does not neccesarily go over the ears, and is usually tied so it is looser than a Patka as the tension is more easily distributed.

You can consult local Sangat if you do not know how to tie a keski.

For our personal comfort we should not sacrifice the Rehat of old. There is no excuse substituting Guru Sahib's Keski for this new manmat modern style Patka.

Khalsa should be Tyaar-Bar-Tyaar at all times. Guru Sahib could give you Darshan at any moment. Will you be ready for Guru Sahib's Darshan in a Harbhajan Singh Cricketer-Style Patka or Kala-Style Doo-Rag?

When you joined the Khalsa, you agreed to give your head at any time it was needed. Any instant Guru Sahib called, you promised you would be ready.

That's wear the concept of tyaar-bar-tyaar comes from. Even when bathing, a Sikh is with his/her kakaars so they are ready.

If you are sleeping bare-head, you are not tyar-bar-tyar. There is every chance that you will need to do seva at night if called. If you are bareheaded or wearing a patka, I'm not so sure you're tyar-bar-tyar.

I also feel keski is kakaar so I can't be apart from it, but even those who dont' feel that way I think can see that a small dastaar is needed.

A Patka is perhaps the ugliest and most undignified head-dress I have ever seen.

You know what, when it comes down to it all I really dont think its going to matter much what you look like on the outside...I dont think theres a such thing as sin, Be a good person man, and God will take care of you, thats all it is thats Guru Nanak preached LOVE! Thats just my 2cents...oh and I dont really like doo rags, I was just saying :lol:
