for your keski:

take the circumference of your head, multiplied by the diameter (which obviously will be kind of tough to measure for ewll..obvious reasons...so estimate!)

take this number (in centimetres), multiply by PI(3.14159). take the natural log of this number. we'll call this number (A), for future reference.

then, take the number of calories you eat in a day (uslaly between 2000 and 4000), and divide by 1000. then multiply by the inverse of the number of glasses of milk you drink on average, in a day. (so if you drink 3 glasses of mlik, then multiply by 1/3)

take this number and multiply by (A)...

so for example, if your circumference of cranium is 35 centimetres, and the diameter is esetimated at 20, and you multiply these together and multiply that answer by PI, you should get


the natural log of this number is:


then let's say you consume 3000 calories per day, and you drink 6 glasses of milk in a day, then that's 3/6, or 0.5

multiply this by 7.69580938 = 3.84790469..

OR IN other words, your keski should be 3.85 metres!

now to the dumaalaa... first of all, you need to decide how high you want your dumalla to be.. if you want the bunga to be high, then estimate HOW high... let's say you want a bunga (from middle of forehead to top of bunga) of 30 centimetres.

you take your keski size, which in this example was 3. 85.

you then multiply by the Future Value Interest Factor of an Annuity at 10%, 3 periods (always use 10%, the number of periods is defined by required bunga height divided by 10..round up if required.)

so it's 3.85 times 3.31 = 12.7435.

you then need to take the square root of this number, because you'll have keski and dumalla, which is 2 turbans, so square root that number, and you get 3.56980392....for simplicity, we'll round up to 3.57.

okay.. now take 3.57, multiply by keski size, 3.85, and your dumalla size in metres is....

13.745 metres long!

i hope that answered your question, and best of luck!

    • 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?
