Dude I don't particularly care whether people wear earrings or not as far I'm concerned it's their actions that matter. I'm just retelling the reasoning given and which I was present to witness 

Good for you. I was simply providing a response to your post. I don't particularly care whether it was your reasoning or not. This is a public forum after all so it wasn't necessarily directed at you per se.

YOU GUYS ARE ABSOLUTELY CRAZY !

The Guru Shaiban and Bhagat Shaiban never adorned an earrring. And also I absolutely adorn the old puratan sikh dastar as I am doing some research on it myself.

Here are the facts... 

1. Guru Hargobind Singh Ji Maharaj to Guru Gobind Singh JI Maharajah all wore kalgi, beautiful attire and shoes, and kirpans (Miri and Piri) as well as the dumalla( maybe the modern ones that we have today..however I must research more on that topic)... However why did  the Guru Sahiban wore this... to define against the tragically and oppressive regime. However with that being said, they did not adorn any earrings here's why and with some proof...

2. FIRST OFF ! Have you guys actually looked at the dates of the old portraits. Most of them were done during the early 1800's to 1850's as Sikh Art thrived.There is not accurate portrait what so ever of the Gurus.... EXCEPT ONE !

The self-portrait of Guru Tegh Bahadur Shaib, which was commissioned by Shaista Khan the Governor of Nepal in 1668.

As the story goes, when Guru Sahib was about to leave the Bengal region, an older lady and the Governor of Bengal requested for the Guru not to leave as they would miss him very much. So the Governor instead inquired a artist to paint Guru Sahib. But the artist had one trouble... he couldn't draw Guru Sahib's beautiful and radiant face..so Guru sahib offered to help draw it out himself....the painting is attached below. Full history can be searched on some online sites... Please also do spend some times in hearing and reflectig on  Dr.Udhoke and other Sikh Historians as well !

3. According to Gurbani itself, changing or hurting the God made creation is forbidden. Just like your body came..it should go back. Also the Guru did not adore or have any love for worldly materials such as gold and diamonds.But some beautiful gifts were delivered to the Guru, to again remind the people of the true Sache Patshah

IT IS HOWEVER TRUE... That the earring only came to be a sign of nobility shortly after Mughal Rule..... Don't believe me check out Aurangzeb's portraits...That's why a lot of portraits that were made all shows earrings..

Any questions please contact or link me ... WJKK!  WJKF !

 

If anyone knows how to tie the puratan old Sikh turban please email me or cotnact me ASAP...Im dying to learn..

Excuse me sir, do you know where I can get earrings similar to the ones worn by the Gurus?

Many thanks.

Easy geezer.

There's a line between banter and taking the p1$$.

Indeed there is. And I do not believe I have crossed such a line. Instead of highlighting a section of my comment which looks offensive on its own, why don't you read the whole thing for context, you'll see it's clearly humour.

Or is humour on its way to being added to the list of bajjar kurehats?

On this occasion, I humbly disagree.

Lol, obviously I read the "whole thing". I only highlighted the part I'm referring to. It's only five words short for gods sake.

Depends on who's the subject of the said "humour". I'd venture to say it's generally a good policy to leave any mention of Guru Sahiban out of jokes.

As for bajjar kurehats, what is or isn't one is no business of mine.

Jeez sorry if I offended you.

I invariably have a sense of dry British humour.

True, although the joke wasn't about Guru Sahib per se. Rather it was directed at a newbie poster, which you may or may not have noticed.

As for your policy, well it's your policy, the joke was not disrespectful or harmful.

I'd love to stay and chat but I must take leave to go and set up my Puratan earring stall at todays Dharmic programme.

You'd find that so do most of the lot round here.

Your "joke" just simply wasn't funny though, which I hoped you'd have clocked onto by now.

It clearly had you in stitches however.

No sh1t sherlock.

Thanks, for stating the bleeding obvious though.

Like I said, I don't agree, so let's leave it at that funnyman.

Errmm actually they don't.

Hence the "dry". It's not supposed to be a "lol" joke. And lastly, the joke wasn't directed at you so next time you need not reply.

The only thing I've clocked onto is that you're offended which I wouldn't care about even if you were the PM of Khalistan.

And why yes it did thanks for noticing.

I had to state the obvious because the subject of the joke wasn't Guru Sahib, which you were kind enough to point out albeit erroneously.

Call the Beadbi Police if you have an issue. I ain't here to agree or disagree with you puttar.

    • 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
