The guy appears to have been a Namdhari, as the views expressed seem to be those that Namdharis hold. I asked a Namdhari about this once, and he told me they believe Guru Gobind Singh Ji called himself the destroyer of those that wear blue ( ie Moghuls ), and hence they make white their coulour of choice.

There is nothing wrong with wearing Blue, but the it is AN ABSOLUTE MYTH that BLUE is THE colour of the Khalsa.

Have a look into Amritpal's website for fuller details on the link provided.

Likewise whilst you're there note the "Arun" clothes of the Sahibzadas and the myths concocted about what actually is acceptable in terms of colour!

To my knowledge, blue and purple were really difficult colours to dye in those days. If you look at christian paintings of jesus, he is usually dressed in a purple robe, this is to symbolise that he is special, rarely was this colour used for clothes, so im guessing rich, spiritual, kings wore these types of colours?

Maybe this could be a reason why Sikhs wear blue, as its a royal colour?

To my very limited knowledge, Saffron symbolises sacrifice, black related to freedom? and white purity.

I was also told that black was only introduced post- 84?

Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa. Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh.

woah...yeah

that person really doesnt know what he's talking about.

the Khalsa colors are actually

blue, to represent that God lives above us all; The sky is above us all.

kesri, i forgot what it represents, sorry blush.gif

black, to represent "bairaag", which is a term used by Amrit-Dharis, which means sadness because of being away from God. we wish to be with him.

white, to represent the happiness and the purity of the true Gursikh souls, (i think thats what it represents...sorry, im not so sure)

for the ones im not sure about, please ask a Gursikh who knows his/her stuff.

i really hope that helped

peace...

Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa. Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh.

    • Umm, that's totally irrational, bro. There are plenty of prakash-dara Singhs in Punjab (less than we'd like, but still plenty). No one cares that you are sabat soorat. It isn't 1986. You can walk around in chola, kurta-pajama, or jeans. Whatever. If you want the look @dallysingh101 is referring to, just go into a cheap clothing shop (not a Western-style mall) and buy some shirts for 250 rupees or a track suit for 2000 rupees. You'll get the cheap stuff made in some sweatshop in Bombay.
    • The Mind is Jyot Saroop (Waheguru), but the mind is under the influence of five evils… Through Naam Simran( Rememberance), the mind will begin to detach from evil, and get back to its original form ( MANN TU JYOT SAROOP HEH)… Until the mind breaks free from the five evils, one will go through the cycle of paap and punn….which leads to Karma… Naam Simran destroys past karma, and prevents new karma coming into fruition… I did this, I did that… This non realisation of the Jyot Saroop gives rise to paap and Punn, which in turn gives birth to suffering and misery…
    • I agree we're not born with sin like the Christians think. Also I agree we have effects of karma. But Gurbani does state that the body contains both sin and charity (goodness): ਕਾਇਆ ਅੰਦਰਿ ਪਾਪੁ ਪੁੰਨੁ ਦੁਇ ਭਾਈ ॥ Within the body are the two brothers sin and virtue. p126 Actually, we do need to be saved. Gurbani calls this "udhaar" (uplift). Without Satguru, souls are liable to spiritual death: ਜਿਨਾ ਸਤਿਗੁਰੁ ਪੁਰਖੁ ਨ ਭੇਟਿਓ ਸੇ ਭਾਗਹੀਣ ਵਸਿ ਕਾਲ ॥ p40 Those who have not met Satguru Purakh are unfortunate and liable to death. So, yeah, we do need to be saved, and Guru ji does the saving. The reason Satguru is the one to save is because God has given Satguru the "key" (kunji): ਸਤਿਗੁਰ ਹਥਿ ਕੁੰਜੀ ਹੋਰਤੁ ਦਰੁ ਖੁਲੈ ਨਾਹੀ ਗੁਰੁ ਪੂਰੈ ਭਾਗਿ ਮਿਲਾਵਣਿਆ ॥੭॥ In the True Guru's hand is the key. None else can open the door. By perfect good fortune the Guru is met. p124
    • That's unfortunate to hear. Could you give any more information? Who was this "baba"? He just disappeared with people's money? Obviously, you should donate your money to known institutions or poor people that you can verify the need of through friends and family in Punjab.
    • Sangat ji,  I know a family who went Sevewal to do seva sometimes end of 2019. They returned last year in great dismay and heart broken.  To repent for their mistakes they approached panj pyaare. The Panj gave them their punishment / order to how t make it up which, with Kirpa, they fulfilled.  They were listening to a fake Baba who, in the end, took all the "Donations " and fled sometime over a year ago. For nearly 4 years this family (who are great Gursikhs once u get to know them) wasted time and effort for this fake Baba. NOT ONLY this one fam. But many, many did worldwide and they took their fam to do seva, in village Sevewal, city Jaitho in Punjab. In the end many families lost money in thousands being behind this Baba. The family, on return, had to get in touch with all the participants and told them to stop.  I am stating this here to create awareness and we need to learn from whom we follow and believe. It's no easy but if we follow the 3 S (Sangat, Simran and Seva) we will be shown the light. As I am writing this the family in question have been doing the same since 2008 onwards and they fell for this Baba... it is unbelievable and shocking.  This am writing in a nutshell as am at work on my break so not lengthy but it deserves a great length.  Especially the family in question, who shed light on youngsters about Sikhi 20 plus years!!
