The lost Sikh turban style

I too am confused brother lol

If I'm entirely honest, I don't see what's wrong with it. Aside from the whole "don't modify your body" thing, but I don't know how much weight that argument holds.

My mum told me that back in the day it wasn't uncommon to see pagg vaale with earrings. Then again, doesn't mean if you wear a pagg you're religious.

But now we seem to have more and more sources which point to Singhs having earrings, and it doesn't seem like it was a big deal.

Physically and mentally I would say the primary effects I've noticed are less anger, less fear, less depression,  When I am on deployments it's sometimes hard to avoid meat, and when I've "relapsed" i

That's not as pronounced as you might think in surviving rehitnamay. There are so many images going way back (including one that purports to be a contemporary one of dasmesh pita) that show earrings. 

Guru ji went to battle as a youth thus his name from Tyag Mal to Teg Bahadur...but his true essence was to be tied to Akal Purakh's charan

The only reason i dont promote earnings is cause of bhai daya singh rehitnama which says

ਬੀਧੇ ਕਾਨ ਨਾ ਨਾਕ ਕੋ ਸਤਿਗੁਰ ਕੀ ਮ੍ਰਿਜਾਦ | Do not pierce the ears or nose, this is the Satguru’s wish

ਪੰਜ ਸ਼ਸਤ੍ਰ ਧਰ ਦੇਹ ਪੈ ਕ੍ਰਿਪਾਨ ਗਾਤਰੇ ਰਾਖ  Wearing 5 weapons on the body, keeping a sword in the gatra.

 

Unless this is only for some people

Hmmm. Which "some people"?

And it seems many people either considered themselves above the rehtinama or this was added in later maybe?

Also what's the source of this rehitnama exactly? When was it written specifically or when was this rehit transmitted to Bhai Daya Singh?

I canny click on that. I've already read the rehitnama before but unless that pdf contains some other info it doesn't matter.

I think it was transmitted to bhai daya singh at hazur sahib around 1708 at hira ghat? 

It also depends when it was written. Many puratan rehitname have things added in to suit a certain viewpoint or agenda. Not saying earrings are one but you can't rule it out.

Does this mean I can get my ears pierced?

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.

Neither am I, but you haven't half dragged this out, theeye.

Like I said, all the best.

I used to have my ears peirced as a mona   I haven't worn them for yrs now  but the hole is still there  it's not going    I really dont like it.    

I think it's a cultural thing in north India  

Dastar style has changed a lot  every century has it's own . gol dastar is most popular now    back in the 50s they used to keep a larh hanging down etc   in future it will be some other style. 

Nihungs used to wear a tall pointy dastar    now they dont

I am not for or against earrings, but I am against us being ignorant about our history.

OK, sure.

Not everything we hear from kathavachaks are true.

Sure. But a painting painted by a mere man is not "true" (satya).

It's a mere representation of something in his mind.

And have you ever found it interesting that a painter of a certain school will paint all his paintings in a certain way?

That's because that's all he knows how to paint.

And as far as certain accouterments or embellishments (such as earrings), that's just what a certain painter supposes that men of a certain era must have worn (not that he would have any personal knowledge--it's a mere supposition).

c'mon the top picture the guy has ankle bracelets on ! This is a misappropriated picture...

Some men wore 1 or 2 anklets in the greater Panjab region and subcontinent, but this entirely depended on their tribe/area. This type of anklet is called 'kada' and worn on the hands too and ones around the neck are called 'hasli/has'. These were all worn by women too. Although, wearing earrings was much more common than anklets by men in Panjab.

The earrings depicted in Sikh art are called "Bala" sometimes they had a few pearls strung on.

Things seem to change quickly too. Chunjurs (ankle bells) used to be common only a few decades ago. Do we see them much anymore?
