veero te bhaino ,

1. isn't dumalla meaning two cloths i.e.two dastars so it is the combo of bunga plus outer two layers of dastars (keshki and outer dastar)?

2. Do you split the width of the turban as it comes from the than or just fold double ?

2 - Usually Dumala turban material isn't very wide or else it might become harder to tie. Thats why Full Voile and F74 are used because they have a less thread count i think. The dumala would be really thick and fat looking and you wouldnt be able to do proper lars if you use thick or heavy material. It shouldn't be too wide because you will already have a keski/bunga and it will be much more difficult to tie. under Mostly everyone I know just splits the turban , but I think if you get a really small material or if you are making your dumalla really small then maybe keave it double I would say you just split it and make two, if you are tieing a keski under then you must.

because I usually do split and picot raw edge on house sewing machine for my own dastar , that is my usual MO but since I read you aren't supposed to sew the dastar in rehitnama I got a little unsure if I was doing something wrong .

Is it compulsory for an amritdhari sikh to tie dumala only, according to historical scriptures and rehat ?

yes in Hukam nama Guru Pita ji has stated that there should be two turbans as we have seen in past the outside one can be used to cover ijjat of females rescued (Bangladesh, Haryana) or rescue people (punjab) whilst keeping internal one to keep head covered.

The keski is not a kakaar.Sri sarbloh Granth states that the kes is kakaar.I think that in sri dasam Granth it also tells that kesh is kakaar.

Guru Gobind Singh Ji said that hair and keski is considered 1 kakkar and you need both in order to take amrit. Check Bhai Rama Singh jis biography. There are others which also said this.

    • 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?
    • All of these are suppositions, bro. Linguists know that, generally, all the social classes of a physical area speak the same language, though some classes may use more advanced vocabulary. I'm talking about the syntax. That is, unless the King is an invader, which Porus was not. When you say Punjabi wasn't very evolved, what do you mean? The syntax must have been roughly the same. As for vocabulary, do you really think Punjabis at the time did nothing more than grunt to express their thoughts? That they had no shades of meaning? Such as hot/cold, red/yellow/blue, angry/sweet/loving/sad, etc? Why must we always have an inferiority complex?
    • I still think about that incident now and then, just haven't heard any developments regarding what happened, just like so many other things that have happened in Panjab!
    • There was a young Singh from abroad who went to Anandpur Sahib Hola and got into a fight with some Punjabis who were playing loud non-religious music. He had bana and a weapon or two. There were more of them than him.  He ended up losing his life. Don't be like that. Not worth it to fight manmukhs. @californiasardar1 ਮੂਰਖੈ ਨਾਲਿ ਨ ਲੁਝੀਐ ॥੧੯॥ Argue not with a fool. p473
