When To Take Off Dastaar?

Recommended Posts

guest veerji .. thanks for your comments.. i am not changing any rehat or beliefs oranything.. i think what i do is exceptable in terms of rehat wise.. i have consulted many singhs and there is nothing wrong wit wearing a 'patka' at home .. i wear it ALL the time at home .. and yes i wear it while i play sports.. i play hockey i am a goalie and i wear a patka ..

everywhere else i go i wear a dastaar..this strictness that people put over us is what scares off people away from sikhi .. trust me i know ..

i got tons of mates that are talkin behind singhs backs cuz of how narrowminded some are .. how some just keep to themselves and dont include others ..

anyway .. i hope i didnt say anything wrong .. stay in chardi kala ..

I think that strictness is a fundamental part of Sikhi.

This isn't just any old path, it is "khanio(n) tikhee vaalo(n) nikee".

It's is very difficult and requires a lot of discipline and yes, "rules".

We always get turned off by rules, because it's someone telling us what to do. Our haumai then says "no one can tell me what to do", and problems arise.

So in terms of being "narrow" and "strict", I think both are somewhat to be expected. The path itself is very narrow and strict.

Though to be clear, a Gursikh can always sympathise with the opposite view point and understand it.

there's nothing wrong with a patka...

it's just fanatical thinking of some people who will argue against it...

i don't think patka should be worn everywhere...but if you're playing sports, or at home chilling...it's totallly fine...

and just cuz it may be "ugly" isn't an argument against it...

even the "tyaar bar tyaar" point doesn't go against wearing a patka...

well.......just wanna ask...where in bani does it refer to gursikhs with beautiful patkas????? the only words in gurbani used are dastaar, keski, and sumtimes even pagrhi.....i personally think that if u want to u can wear a small keski to bed or at home...and even if it comes off...its not our fault is it? i was told that when a sikh goes out they MUST wear 2 DASTAARS......at home 1 is ok

there are many things today that sikhs use and do that isnt in gurbani .. patka is yet one of them ..

your getting me wrong bhenji .. i didnt say once wear only patka everywhere.. i only wear it ONLY on two occasions .. at nights when my head is hurting i goto sleep wit patka .. and i usually relax it during the night.. i sometimes wear a small keski as well sometimes.. can someone tell me how a small keski is suppose to help u more than a patka if smeone attacks u ????

and the other time i wear it is in sports.. everywhere else i wear a dastaaar ..

challo .. we defer at things .. but i dont think guru sahib would hate me for the way i do things ..

bhul chuk maph ..

Jaspual pajee guru ji doesnt have hatred for anyone..you know that. Patka or any turban, if you need to in a certain situation its fine in my opinion, as long as its not replaing the pagh full time, which obviously it wont......distaar, dumaalla, paghri....RULE ALL THE WAY.

i wear a patka all the time but i am definately going to replace it with a dastaar one day. i wear it because i would like to take amrit, and am trying to keep the rehit. i would rather try keeping rehit before taking amrit rather than taking amrit and not being able to keep rehit. i started keeping my hair and wearing a patka out of my own choice, and it makes me feel sad when people say that they think a patka is 'ugly'. my 'ugly' patka will hopefully be replaced with a dastaar one day, with Guru Jis kirpa. it was a big step for me to start growing my kesh an tying a patka, but it would have been harder to wear a dastaar because where i live, you will never see anyone even wearing a pugh. i know that i could have started wearing a dastaar straight away but i am a chicken. im just a moorakh whos trying to follow my Guru, and stay in chardikala. it hurt me when you said a patka is ugly, because to me, my patka means alot. it reminds me of the life i wasted when i didn't know about sikhi, and the life that i could have if Guru Ji blesses me.

sorry for any mistakes, or if i have offended anybody.
