Full Ishnaan after a Number 2

Recommended Posts

I’m totally confused right now after having some discussion with some Singh’s regarding having an Ishnaan before sitting on the Tabia of Maharaj. When asking for “where is it written” no one could answer the question or even provide a logic so I’m asking the sangat here to provide me some answers.

I get before sitting on the Tabia you have to have full ishnaan from head to toe. Now during Raul I’ve been told that if I go for a piss then I should do panj ishnaan. But if I were to go for a dump then I have to have a full ishnaan head to toe. I can understand the logic between the two to some extent but if I’m doing seva and decide to go for a dump, I’d have to go home to have a full ishnaan and then change into new clothing to continue the seva. Firstly where is this maryada documented and written and why can’t you just do panj ishnaan after having a dump? I know someone will come up and say oh having a dump is dirty but hey come on it’s a natural thing for all humans to do. Going to the toilet and then washing your hands thoroughly after, why would I need to wash my hair too? I don’t get that part.

If soochamta for tabia is troubling you don't do the sewa, the same rules of soochamta have been running for over 300years  including this requirement for abhilakees for amrit -full keshi isnaan and clean clothes. If you've been to the toilet that no longer is true so just take it in your stride and rebathe and change. Most gurdwarey have bathing facilities for paatis for that reason.

why are you being so western? unlike the west, most eastern countries did not have written records.  We rely on oral history and passing on our traditions generation by generation. So most people would go to taksal or other traditional institutions and learn all this. And normal people learned things from their parents or elders. How stupid it must be to write down, how to conduct oneself whilst going to the bathroom. This is taught when one is young and is a waste of paper to write down. In the west, people are looking to see how animals sit or kneel to poop to find the most optimal way for our body to #2 as they have forgotton what is natural and did not learn their cultural way. 

But if you must know, it is written in the book called Khalsa Rehit Maryada by Sant Kartar Singh Ji. 

Also it makes total sense to have a full kesi ishnaan, because the smell penetrates and the water we use may splash on our clothes and everywhere.

Read/Listen to Gurbilaas Patshashaee Chevee (6th Guru Sahib) - there are clear instructions about our manners and requirements whilst in Guru Sahib's Darbaar Sahib within this Pothee Sahib.

When my Dad would go for raul duty he would do the necessary and then bathe and put his chola in a bag to change in gurdwara sahib to make sure it stayed clean , never experienced an emergency in all the years he did duty . Please ask paati Singhs where the ishnan parbandh is just in case if you are having issues .

    • 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
