Women in Bana Wearing Dupattas

Recommended Posts

Vaheguru Ji Ka Khalsa, 

Vaheguru Ji Ki Fateh

I am a Sikh girl who has recently started wearing a Dastaar. I chose to do this as I wish to live in the bana that the Guru set for us. I am also Amritdhari. One question came to my mind... Is wearing a Dupatta/Chunni required if I am wearing a Dastaar. From my belief, Dupattas/Chunnis are meant to cover hair as a sign of respect for the Guru. Wearing a Dastaar permanently takes care of that. However, I see several women that have Keskis, yet they use a Dupatta/Chunni to wrap it around their breasts/bust. Is that the whole point of a Dupatta? To simply cover one's breasts? Women without keski/dastaar are often just covering their chest with a Dupatta/Chunni yet have their heads uncovered. Defeats the whole purpose... So simply put, is it preferred for women in Gurdwaras to cover their breasts over their hair? And if I am wearing a Keski, then is it preferred if I also wear a Dupatta/Chunni to cover my breasts? I would be grateful if someone could shine some light on this issue for me. Thank you. 

 

Kind Regards

Bhain ji 

if your body is covered to your neck i.e. not low cut neckline  and your kameez is loosely cut I wouldn't worry so much about the dupatta as your head is covered . However as we all know most suits are form fitting and when doing things like matha tekna and bending to pick up something a bit more is revealed than we would like so to preserve modesty a dupatta is wise , occasionally comes in handy too for wiping a brow or kiddies tears . Just go according to what you are wearing and what you think presents a modest image in Front of your Guru Pita

VAHEGURU JI KA KHALSA, VAHEGURU JI KI FATEH

There is no Hukamnama that requires the wearing of a Dupatta.  Guru Gobind Singh Ji gave a Hukamnama in Nander Sahib (52 Hukams) for all Sikhs to tie Dastaar.  Sikh Rehat Maryada says that a woman may or may not tie a Dastaar, but that her head must be covered at all times.

Bheinji wearing a Dupatta along with turban makes a Bibi look more graceful & dignified.

Don't go by my word try both options and see which gives you spiritual high !

Guru Gobind Singh Jee looks the most dignified and graceful, and he does that without wearing a chunni. 

To OP, just do what you feel is right for you.

Actually, Mata Gujri Ji also look graceful and dignified and DID wear a chunni. Just saying that statement above makes no sense. The whole World knows that Guru Gobind Singh didn't wear a chunni!! Have some satkar your sarcasm is out of order. Do whatever but don't use Maharaj in this way.

Bhul chuk maaf.

I'm not using sarcasm.

Guru sahib still looks the most dignified and graceful to me.

It's not the chunni that makes someone look that way, it's the character and qualities.

Seriously?  Yes chunni/duputta is very important. Purataan bibiyan wore it and so should we. There are many reasons as listed above. Going in darbar infront of guru granth sahib ji you need one. You need to cover yourself up. Just because you dont have bad thoughts, doesnt mean you are not tempting others on it. Itll be on you at the end. 

Every bibi wearing dastar needs to have a duputta when wearing a suit. Plus, suits look totally awkward without ones anyways

    • Bro I think eradicating hunger and homelessness has nothing to do with this topic especially when title for this topic is ‘Cannabis vs Alcohol’.  You do not need to Einstein to figure out what elements of Cannabis the poster is trying to compare.
    • No but hunger and homelessness are problems today which is why I think @shastarSingh is interested in a variety of things the Paanth could grow, make, forage or hunt that would benefit them and positively impact their lifestyle. Cotton doesn't grow everywhere. So if somebody has a mind to grow their own clothes, or create an export product, interest in hemp makes sense.  Put your mind to trying to sustain Jathas in varying climates from scratch, for self determination or to survive unrest and you'll get his vibe more I think. 
    • Have you read the side effects of pharma? Have you never seen a class action lawsuit against pharma? Have you never heard of pharma faking or bypassing safety and legislative measures? I'd take insulin if I was diabetic in conjunction with all holistic measures.  I'm not against medicine bro practiced properly. That's only a percentage of the medicine practiced however.  Nobody is debating the efficacy of stitches. Nobody goes schizo from Sukha either bro. You're reefer mad. 
    • We live in the 21st Century!  Nihung Singhs bana is made from cotton as it always was.  Nihung Singhs to this day do not use hemp for dietary needs.  Nihung Singhs do not live in houses made from hemp.     Marijuana also carries the risk of triggering one the worst diseases ‘schizophrenia’ losing your mind.  This disease is no good for any Tyar bey Tyar Singh.    The biggest ninda is when you make rituals out practices that were a part of our glorious warriors day to day life.  Indulging in these practices when one not living the life of Nihung Singh is ninda.
    • I have personally never seen any young Nihung Singh excel from using Cannabis but you can’t take my personal encounters and discount anybody’s medical findings regarding the use.  The same should apply to you when you make claims about your encounter with schizophrenia.  The fact is that Cannabis does have a link to psychosis and schizophrenia and this is backed up by research. Regarding modern pharma and negative affects, this is too deep to even converse on.  I do know that when Guru Gobind Singh Maharaj was injured from a wound inflicted by a dagger, a European Surgeon was given the task to tend the wound.  For that time you could say that this was the use of modern medical practice.  I also know that Guru Gobind Singh Maharaj also possessed modern weapons.  This tells us that our Guru was in favour of modern warfare as well as modern medical practices. So my question to you is why are you afraid of modern medicine and why are you on the path to making a ritual of preserving something that was used for specific scenarios of the time.
