Is wearing the 5Ks superstitious?

People say, that Guru told us to wear the 5ks , on us at all times to remind us and empower our sikhi.

This sounds like a ritual.

Everything that Guru Ji told us to do has a practical and spiritual reason. There are NO rituals in Sikhi this is because Guru Ji can never be wrong because:

guru parmesar eko jaan 

The Guru and the Transcendent Lord are one and the same

bro you ask too many questions..

its good to be inquisitive in life but why do you keep questioning Guru ji when you take on the appearance of a Sikh?

you sound confused and the more you keep conflating Gurmat with your western thinking and need for scientific proof, the more you're going to overwhelm yourself and potentially lose faith - this is duality.

if you don't know the answer to something, sometimes its better to stay quiet and do your own research i.e. Gurbani, rehitname, hukamname etc. so you can piece together various information and find the answers for yourself..

I think your crossing the line now, don't say stuff like that..

Contradiction that no-one can answer......

 

1. Sikhs say no rituals. Nothing that you are tied to, and have special importance on, for no reason. No, lucky charms, or doing a certain chant everyday for good luck.

2. funnily enough, the rehit says, pray everyday, and wear a sword, and carry a comb, to .... what exactly...?

First of all we don't do out Nitnem as a lucky charm or for good luck. Nitnem is showing our love and devotion to preetam pyara Akaal Purakh Waheguru and showing him that we are ready to place him before us and as a result Waheguru will undoubtedly get happy and give you good luck and help you out since you have made him your friend.

Listen here, I think it utterly sad for you to be spending your time on this forum -a place where we should help one other - trying to denigrate Sikhi and put it into a bad light, spreading hate and breaking sharda of others. Don't you think this is a bit sad? You already know all the answers to the nonsense questions you ask and are just here to stir up conversation and debates.

Well... we wouldn't have to debate what Guru Ji actually said if you just listened in the first place.

I always used to wonder when Sukhmani sahib has the following line 

"Jaananhaar prabhu parbeen . Baahar bhekh na kaahu bheen"

(The excellent lord is all knower. He's not impressed with your outer looks) 

then why 5 Ks ?

And the answer to that is : 

Sikhi is like a rose , delicate and giving off fragrance of virtues to everyone , but a rose needs a guardian like thorns to safe it from mischievous ppl. Khalsa is that thorn . I hope you get my point now .

    • It's a great deed in itself to have the Gurus Roop but sadly most women decide not to. We should encourage men and women alike don't get me wrong, but girls tend to feel more insecure about the way they look in the first place.   Chup kar. 
    • I've always wondered what the first edition covered that caused so much upset in the colonialist establishment of the time?       “ONE OF THE MOST VALUABLE BOOKS EVER PUBLISHED IN CONNECTION WITH INDIAN HISTORY”: RARE FIRST EDITION OF CUNNINGHAM’S HISTORY OF THE SIKHS, 1849, HANDSOMELY BOUND (INDIA) CUNNINGHAM, Joseph Davey. A History of the Sikhs, from the Origin of the Nation to the Battles of the Sutlej. London: John Murray, 1849. Octavo, modern full brown calf, raised bands, burgundy morocco spine label.$4800. First edition, with map of Punjabi political divisions until 1803 outlined in color, color folding map of Punjabi political divisions after the treaty of 1846, and folding genealogical table of the Gooroos, handsomely bound. Cunningham joined the Bengal Engineers in 1831 and arrived in India in 1834. “In 1837 he was selected by Lord Auckland to join Colonel Claud Wade, who was then the political agent upon the Sikh frontier, as assistant, with the special duty of fortifying Firozpur, the agent’s headquarters. This appointment brought him into close connection with the Sikhs, and, as he spent the next eight years of his life in political employments in this part of India, he was able to obtain that thorough knowledge of their manners and customs which makes his History of the Sikhs one of the most valuable books ever published in connection with Indian history. In 1838 he was present at the interview between Lord Auckland and Runjeet Singh, the great Sikh chieftain; in 1839 he accompanied Colonel Wade when he forced the Khyber Pass, and he was promoted first lieutenant on 20 May in that year; in 1840 he was placed in charge of Ludhiana, under G. Russell Clerk, Colonel Wade’s successor, and as political officer accompanied Brigadier-general Shelton and his army through the Sikh territory to Peshawur on his way to Cabul, and then accompanied Colonel Wheeler and Dost Muhammad, the deposed ameer of Afghanistan, back to British territory; in 1841 he was sent on a special mission to the principality of Jammu; in 1842 he was present at the interview between Lord Ellenborough and Dost Muhammad and the Sikhs… He spent four years on [the History], and on its publication in 1849 it was received with the greatest favor by the English press, a verdict which posterity has ratified, for it is universally recognized as the one authority upon the subject. But though this history made his name as an historian, it brought him into deep disgrace with his superiors. In his last chapter he treated of the history of the first Sikh war, and in it he made use of the knowledge he had obtained while acting as political agent with the army in the field, and distinctly asserted that two of the Sikh generals, Lal Singh and Tej Singh, were bought. Both Lord Hardinge and Colonel Henry Lawrence, who had acted as political agent after the death of Major Broadfoot, asserted that there had been no private negotiations with any of the Sikh leaders; but the confidential position which Cunningham had held, and still more his disgrace which followed, are strong arguments that such negotiations did pass” (DNB). As a result of the controversy, Cunningham was stripped of his authority and ordered to go on regular regimental duty. He lost most of his income in the process and any possibility of political advancement. Indeed, the publication of The History of the Sikhs marked the end of his career. He was known primarily for revealing confidential documents and his great accomplishments were little recognized, The History of the Sikhs having been largely suppressed. Cunningham died unexpectedly in 1851. Indeed, the second edition—featuring Cunningham’s own corrections and additions—was not published until 1853, too late for Cunningham’s reputation to matter. Folding map expertly linen-backed, interior generally quite nice, binding fine. A lovely copy in fine condition.   https://www.baumanrarebooks.com/rare-books/cunningham-joseph-davey/history-of-the-sikhs/89967.aspx
