Kacchera & Bathroom (Help!)

Recommended Posts

Vaheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Vaheguru Ji Ki Fateh,

Before I write this benti to all Sangat - this is a post for advice, if you are going to come with a holier than thou attitude or ridicule then please do not bother replying!

So I have just started wearing the Panj Kakkar, as practice before I take Amrit, and I have a question about the Kacchera.

I work in in a professional role in central London, and today went to the bathroom to 'pee', I wiped my parts before re-tying my naala, when I looked down I noticed some residue on the kachera.

Now I have been told before by family members that if this happens you need to do Ardaas and change your Kacchera immediately? Is this the case?

I only ask because my family are kind of against me taking Amrit so not sure whether this is just hearsay or another way to deter me from taking Pahaul.

I don't see anyway round this as there probably will always bee some kind of residue?

Any Singhs that can provide any advice on this, will be much appreciated.

look unless you are at home I doubt seriously you would be able to wash and change . Practically speaking our underwear will get dirty , it is expected to,  that's why we wash and change everyday/when we have to do sewa . You are trying your best to get practice and that is good , just count this as a mistake , clean up as best as you can and resolve to change yourself as soon as you are able . I have never heard of having to change immediately , you need to use your common sense , keeping safai is very important but we are not stuck in pollution mentality  such as exists in other faiths.  However if you were to do sewa in Gurdwara yes you need extra suchumta  especially for direct sewa of Guru ji so then in that case you would have to bathe and change . Same is true of abhilakees taking Amrit keshi ishnaan .

Thank you phenji, I kind of gathered that might be the case, but you don't know if you don't ask!

You're going to wash the kachera anyway so don't worry about it.

Imagine how hard it would be everyday if we had to change kachera all the time. All about simplicity and being open-minded.

100% hearsay. Only if you're living on own or plus 18 go for Amrit. Your fam will make it extra difficult for u, otherwise. They'll make u feel crap u ever took Amrit. There is nothing wrong with risidue wha so eva.
