Sat Sri Akal:

Alright, the Panthic Rehat Maryada states that all men who are Sikhs must keep their heads covered with a turban and all women must keep thwir heads covered (turban or otherwise).

No Panthic Jatha or organization disagrees with this Maryada...so the entire Panth agrees with it.

Waheguroo Jee Ka Khalsa!

Waheguroo Jee Kee Fateh!!

Sorry sadhsangat ji,

I'm again confused and you gus have gone off topic first of all I don't know what panthic means or is? or um what is rehit maryda, i was simply asking when doing naam simran do we have to keep our head covered, I've read some of the posts here and some do make sense but I dunno why for some reason I can't concentrate when I do naam simran with my jora only when my hair is out...how can I improve this and do simran with my turban on i hear you can get an intense electryfying feeling... :wub:

Sat Sri Akal:

Sorry, us old people have very bad attention spans. When we are not busy cursing the youth with terms like "whippersnappers" and "nincompoops", we are busy getting each other confused. Reminds me of the time I was in Wahington D.C.... :wub: @ :wub: @ :@ @

Anyways, Panthic Rehat Maryada is the Rehat Maryada that was drafted after Sikh scholars got together, evaluated the existing Rehatnamae (codes of conduct drafteb by various Sikhs), tested them against Gurbani, and compiled them into one code of conduct that serves as a Sikh Code of Conduct. It can be found here:

"how can I improve this and do simran with my turban on i hear you can get an intense electryfying feeling... "

Well, listen to some electrifying Kirtan and Simran, that's how! And lucky for you, there was just a post on this topic. So comb your hair, tie your Kesh into a Joora, tie a Dastaar, and listen away to the tracks available:

Waheguru Ji ka Khalsa, Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh

Waheguru Ji, core of Sikhi has prem(love) as a very important virtue. Before we put Rehat onto anyone via any medium, it is important for that person to have love within themselves. True/Pure love emerges from Naam and I think we all agree to that. So as a beginner(non-Sikh or coming into Sikhi from another religion), it is okay if you are not covering your head, Naam is for everyone, let the love develop, and then the miracles will follow. If you are a Sikh, it is a better choice to have a keski on or a patka when at home to do Naam Simran as it is a very bare minimum for us. Looking at the Dal Panth, Singhs always have a Dumalla or Keski on. My go to for living practically comes from Dal Panth a lot. But again, it is what i feel comfortable in and have developed over time with love as its base. As a Sikh, if it doesn't go a different way compared to the Maryada we have that were blessed to us by Maharaj, it seems fine. As a non-Sikh, do what feels right to understand Sikhi first, everyone makes mistakes, but it is important to learn and grow. I hope this helps you. May Maharaj bless you with more & more Naam Simran.

    • I am in big dilemma.  As we all know that waheguru ji everywhere. I also understand that it is important to go to gurudwara sahib as well. My question is that if i do ardaas at home or any other place other than  gurudwara sahib, will it be heard and acknowledged by guru sahib or it is always important to go to gurudwara sahib and do ardaas at gurudwara sahib for guru sahib to acknowledge it? I always do path and ardaas at home in front of harmandir sahib photo or hazur sahib photo  and then for important things i make a list and go to gurudwara sahib to do the ardaas there because i think that if i do ardaas in front of guru granth sahib then it will be more accepted by guru sahib. On the other hand i think that if i am doing ardaas in front of harmandir sahib or hazur sahib photo and redoing the same ardaas at gurudwara sahib, i feel that i am not respecting the authority of harmandir sahib or hazur sahib. Because of all this, I wait to find a quite time at gurudwara sahib when there is less or no sangat  so that I can open my list and read and do ardaas spend 10-15 minutes on average to do ardaas. If there are lot of people, i can't do ardaas due to people in the lineup and I don't want to block access to them while i am spending so much time doing ardaas. If i leave without doing ardaas then i am embarrassed, disappointed and sad and then OCD kicks in. Kindly help!    
    • Play/do gurbani, simran and keertan often, make sure you do your nitnem, use sarbloh and wear sarbloh!
    • process is to find a vichola and then the vichola talks between your family and theirs. The process should be similar to how rishta is done in India side!
    • No. If you read the histroy of Guru jis' times and even centuries later, usually marriages were done in childhood. Then when they were old enough to start their grihast jeevan partnership, the bride is brought over to her husbands's house in muklawa ceremony. 4-5 years engagement is silly. You get Anand Karaj now, and then after university she you do muklawa, that is much more in the guidelines!
    • you need to explain that even the devtay kept their kes, and is a part of the ancestors' culture, that sikhi is also preserving the kshatriya and dharmik cultures!
