Only head hair is called kesh .beard is not mandatory in sikhism . Sikhs of history did keep beard because in those time warrior Sikhs use to wear large dumalls in battlefield . So without beard big turban dont suit.therefore they kept beard

If you've taken Amrit you're forbidden to trim/color your beard. If being comfortable and acceptable is what you're looking for, for a second think of what else you said. You talked about the Shaheeds

1 Simple answer to this: Because Guru Gobind Singh Ji gave hukum to keep our Kesh !!! End of story for me really Your choice at the end of the day though !!! To get your answer you should really be

One way to keep the ladies quiet...

All hairs on the body are Kesh, either you keep it like a legit person or cut it like a legit person. Don't be a Pakhandi.

Bro, don't trim your dhari! I was going through the same stuff at home, my parents kept telling me I looked messy and untidy etc, that I looked old, but all I remembered was that Sahib Sri Guru Gobind Singh Ji gave me their look, their bakshish is Kesh!

What the hell has world come to ?? now parents of sikh boys tell them that they look messy and aged with beard ? like seriously ! so much of self loathing ?

Veere I'll focus on the part you said about feeling clean and your beard looking clean.you take a shower everyday right?Firstly, Beard is also a part of your body shampoo it once a day ,doesn't cost much even .Oil it an tie it doesn't take more than 10 minutes.secondly nowadays many of us sikh youngsters have been comparing ourselves with others and think of a beard as an optional accessory, my point being why so difficult for you to be comfortable in your own skin.i won't go towards the religion side.see even i am just 22 but this beard is something that gives me reminder of my identity.if people ask why beard ? I ask why not . N if it is regarding girls don't like beard trust me man the girls who talk to you for the way you ,i think it's just not worth it.har koi is tarah sochne lag gya to the next generation of ours won't identify a pagg with a beard and that's just downright sad. You know whenever I look in a mirror i see a reflection of my father, ye sirf daadi nhi ye teri viraasat hai aur viraasate bhulayi nhi jaati inhe kaaim rakhte hai. I have been in your place and rabb da shukar hai i didn't do it . Just be yourself

Since this old thread has been revived, I will have to comment.

IF you want to look like trim Singh then you can easily just do thathi on different parts of your beard and moustache to compress them. Then when you want to look like a Singh you just open it and maybe use kanga to sort it.

However, we really don't need to have short beards. PErhaps for specific reasons in your job you might need to. Otherwise, only time Singhs tired their beards up was because the angrez ordered them to for serving in BRitish army and I guess this got carried over to east african sikh descendents and modern indian army as well. Or obviously, if you're a Singh who is doing spy work for Khalsa.

OR there is the extreme when Bhagat Singh had to trim his hairs.

Anyway I remember an amrit dhari I went to school with. HE was handsome and always had tied beard pics on Facebook. He is from an east african background. And then a few years ago he seems to have trimmed his dhari and has pics with these. I also always see him with some hindu girl on FB pics now.

Very strange people. I have pendoo jatt drunk relatives and I wear my dhari with pride around them. I hope it intimidates them as well.

I personally think that men with beards look more like men and are quite handsome. If you use the right products such as oils and what nots you can get your beard to still look neat and clean. Basics of Sikhi once said... Be Brave Dont Shave... I dont have a beard depending on how close you are to my face but i like to follow that particular quote!  :rofl

Sikh kyu apni beard tream karde ne isde piche ik  reason hai ki oh fashion nu follow karn lyi and kudiyan nu impress karan layi karde ne. Ehy sab kuch karke oh apne guru nu pith dikhaunde ne. Mai v pehle beard trim kiti hoyi c par menu rabb di bakshish hoyi te mai beard rakh layi. Mai recently beard oils de upar website v shuru kiti hai https://www.bestnreview.com/  ki kyu sikh beard oil use nahi karda. Kyu oh fixco laga laga ke apni beard nu damage kari jaa reha ha. Mai bas ehy kehna chahunda han ki apni good beard nu samb ke rakho te usnu damage na karo fixco laga ke.

    • Shalom Sri Akal... I mean, Sat Sri Akal, fellow Sikh brothers and sisters. 😅
    • That happened to me once. I did an additional Jap Ji Sahib for a few days. It was an accident. Make amends according to your conscience, and move on.
    • There is simply no reason to do agan bhet (tribute to the fire). There are ways of repairing books. (Yeah, I know Gutka Sahib is not a mere book, but I'm just talking about the technology of binding.) I have no clue why your soul doesn't agree to do path on that Gutka Sahib. Do you think it has been sullied? Even if you wrote Gurbani on something that was ritually impure, that would make it pure: ਤਰ ਤਾਰਿ ਅਪਵਿਤ੍ਰ ਕਰਿ ਮਾਨੀਐ ਰੇ ਜੈਸੇ ਕਾਗਰਾ ਕਰਤ ਬੀਚਾਰੰ ॥ ਭਗਤਿ ਭਾਗਉਤੁ ਲਿਖੀਐ ਤਿਹ ਊਪਰੇ ਪੂਜੀਐ ਕਰਿ ਨਮਸਕਾਰੰ ॥੨॥ The palmyra palm tree is considered as impure and so are deemed its leaves to be. But if the Lord's praise be written on it, we worship it and bow before it. p1293   Similarly, Guest Komal, for whatever you think the pages of the Gutka Sahib became "impure" by falling on the ground, it is still pure. Get it out of your head. The very Gurbani you're reciting says so. This is not to say that you should throw dirt on purpose on a Gutka sahib. It is only to say you shouldn't burn a Gutka for your mistake.
    • 1. Beggars can't be choosers. I'll take what we can get. I'm actually fine with numbers.  Yeah, so many of them have no clue what Gurbani says, but as long as they, in their minds, "ਮੰਨ" Guru Granth Sahib ji, that's good enough for me. Because who am I to say I'm any better than them? ਹਉ ਅਪਰਾਧੀ ਗੁਨਹਗਾਰ ਹਉ ਬੇਮੁਖ ਮੰਦਾ॥ ਚੋਰੁ ਯਾਰੁ ਜੂਆਰਿ ਹਉ ਪਰ ਘਰਿ ਜੋਹੰਦਾ॥ I am a criminal, a sinner, evil and apostate. I am a thief, adulterer; gambler who always keeps his eye upon other's household. Vaar Bhai Gurdas ji 36, Pauri 21   2. I'm pleased to be part of a Panth which encouraged people to join it for the love of Guru Nanak ji, instead of being forced to (by various means) like the Abrahamics.   3. If you're in the company of non-practicing Sikhs, they'll generally let you do your thing (Nitnem, Reharas, whatever). It's not like you're asking "Hey, mind if I do Namaz?" Or "I'm fasting for Ramadan". You're part of the same religion, though they're not strict about it. 4. What the Mullahs do is, first they get you into their religion. Then they indoctrinate the kids into Jihad. Why can't we do the same (indoctrinate into Bhagti, not Jihad)?
    • But that's not what he was saying. He was saying that certain among us not only compromised with maryada while working for the new masters, but also -during off hours,  -after retiring from service, and -worst of all, passed on those compromises to following generations as a kind of baseline   The only true baseline for maryada is the maryada of Guru Gobind Singh ji.
