As far as I know most people do it on clockwise, becasue we wanna have SGGSji on our right side, as most of us are rightys. But may be Nihang singhs are leftys :-)) I never paid attention though how people go around. Something to look for in future.

Always keep your shaster towards guru sahib parikarma, anadkarj lava in nihang singhs is always done anti clock wise

Shastar are higher in the hierarchy, therefore Shastar are given more prefference to us mere mortals when doing parikarma, and since a singhs mukh Shastar is on the right side, parikarma is therefore done with the mukh Shastar facing Maharaj, therefore parikarma is done anticlockwise.

:huh: so why do most people do parkarma clockwise?

maharaj only cares bout how much love we have :cool:

but theres always a reason we do sumthing in sikhi like why do we do ardas with our hands folded? answer in video of Guruka Singh :)

tradition of doing parkarma to someone as a sign of respect/submission is an old one

daanat dachhan dai kai pradachhan bhaal mai kunkam achhat laavai

tuk basically says that the devte did parkarma around indra, keeping him to their right, applying a sort of tilak on indra's forehead

so there's always been that significance of keeping a mahapurakh/person of high regard, to the right when doing parkarma

but faujaa dee reet has always been nyara. they keep shastar towards maharaj always, even in laavaa, showing higher importance towards the shastar than themselves

in gatka, when parkarma is done of shastar in the paintraa, it is done counterclockwise, highlighting that same idea

like randombhainji said, gal pyaar te mukdee aa, but rehit and traditions cannot be overlooked either; they hold equal importance

Not necessarily true, many singhs do it clockwise.

O my Beloved, I am a sacrifice to You. Through the Guru, I have dedicated my mind to You.

Is doing parkarma a way that we physically give ourselves to Guru sahib and mentally sacrfice our manmat..?

hmmm what if a taksali marries a nihung ,,,,

2 counterclokwise

According to Sikhi, what is the significance of having the one you respect on your right side? According to Sikhi, does it really matter which side someone/thing is on? Traditionally, all over the world, a person stays to the left of someone who is more respected (older, religious, with authority)...however, according to Sikhi, this really doesn't matter.....right? :6

According to Gurmat and Bhai Gurdaas Jees Kabit Svaye

crn Amol prdCnw krn kY ]

Charan Amol Pardchaana Karn Kaeh

"Those feet that do Parkarma (circumambulations in a clockwise direction) of Guru Sahib Jee are priceless." (Kabit Svaye Bhai Gurdas Jee p.17)

So in circumambulations clockwise direction is the correct way.

s50, while the tuk shows the importance of parkarma, it in no way implys clockwise or counter-clockwise direction.

The tuk just says "parkarma". The translator (probaby SikhitotheMax) also added "in a clockwise direction". Otherwise, parkarma just means circumambulation.

Generally speaking, parkarma is done in a clockwise direction, though. But Guru kian ladlian faujan do it in the opposite direction because of a funny Sakhi which I can't remember now having to do with keeping the sword arm on the right side in order to defend Guru ji if needed.
