Stop giving stupid reasons on Why we don't cut Hair.

Recommended Posts

When someone asks why Sikhs don't cut their hair, most people on the internet and in real life try to be oversmart and end up giving stupid reasons.

Like "hair is a gift from god and we honor that" or "it makes us stand out"  or "we maintain the form that god gave us" . Even if these answers are partially true, these are not the reason we keep our hair. So why do we keep our hair? Because the Guru said so. Simple as that. [ Sikh - student (of the Guru) ]

So when someone asks you, Why do you not cut your hair? Answer, because My Guru said so.

And if we cut our hair are we no longer Sikh? Are people with Kesh and dhari better then someone like a buddist monk who shaves his head? Or anyone that shaves his head for that matter. 

Also reminds of of this annoying kid. Who wore a parka. He used to go around saying to people. 'Are you a true Sikh'?

When he himself engaged in all kinds of bad behaviours but thought he was saint because he wore the turban.

according to Guru ji yes we become patit i.e. non-sikh

listening to , then living in Guru's hukham is the first message of Japji Sahib after Mool Mantar.

the Patka is not a dastar it is just one step from rumal on jooda as it has no lads no sikh wore patkey before the eighties, and no rumal before the seventies. It is pure backsliding of parents

From tankhanama bhai nand lal ji

ਬਚਨ ਹੈ ਸ੍ਰ੍ਰ੍ਰੀ ਗੁਰੂ ਜੀ ਕਾ ਕਿ ਜੋ ਕੋਈ ਸਿਖ ਦਾ ਬੇਟਾ ਹੋਏੇ ਔੌਰ ਮੋਨਾ ਹੋਇ ਜਾਵੈ

Bachan hai srrrī gurū jī kā ki jō kōī sikh dā bēṭā hōē aaur mōnā hōi jāvai

This is the directive of Guru, that if the son of a Sikh shaves the head,

ਭਾਈ ਨੰਦ ਲਾਲ ਜੀ : ਤਨਖ਼ਾਹ ਨਾਮਾ ਪੰ. ੧੪੮

ਤਸਿ ਕੀ ਜੜ੍ਹ੍ਹ੍ਹ ਸ ਕੀ, ਔੌਰ ਜੋ ਮੋਨਾ ਸਿਖ ਹੋਇ ਜਾਵੈ ਤਸਿ ਕੀ ਜੜ੍ਹ੍ਹ੍ਹ ਹਰੀ ॥

Tasi kī jaṛhhh sa kī, aaur jō mōnā sikh hōi jāvai tasi kī jaṛhhh harī ॥

His posterity will be ruined, and if a shaven one becomes Sikh, his descendants will flourish.

ਭਾਈ ਨੰਦ ਲਾਲ ਜੀ : ਤਨਖ਼ਾਹ ਨਾਮਾ ਪੰ. ੧੪੯

ਇਤਿ ਸ੍ਰ੍ਰ੍ਰੀ ਤਨਖ਼ਾਹ ਨਾਮਾ ਸੰਪੂਰਨੰ ॥

Iti srī tankhaāh nāmā sampūrnan ॥

This concludes the Code of punishment

ਭਾਈ ਨੰਦ ਲਾਲ ਜੀ : ਤਨਖ਼ਾਹ ਨਾਮਾ ਪੰ. ੧੫੦

I agree    some sikhs also try to find scientific justifications   which I find really silly          

Keeping hair and dhari is a hukham   simple as

well said, it's a hukam simple as. 

But to be fair, there are probably spiritual reasons for letting hair grow to it's full length, even probably physical benefits.. but as sikhs we should just follow Guru's Hukam.

devte and rishis etc grew their hair out. The vedas were written by the rishis who received them through meditation. 

Buddhists shave it because for them it represents  attachment to the world. 

In some indian religions hair is associated with beauty and attachment so they shave them off    which symbolizes them leaving the materialistic world behind.  It's the reason why north indian women traditionally cover their heads when doing pooja or going mandir  because for them hair represents beauty (ego)  so they cover it.

Different schools of thought in india have had various beliefs when it comes to hair.

In judaism Samsons mother was told not to ever cut his hair. 

We have been given the hukham to keep it.

I heard that those buddhists that follow Nanak lama keep their kesh ... goes to show what Guru ji said about kesh  keeping

You think saying "My Guru said so" is a better answer than accepting God's will etc..?  So, what if you told some gora that, and he said "ya, but do you know why your Guru asked you to keep your hair?"... Then what answer would you give?

why do you need to justify to a Gora? This is exactly what I am talking about. Thanks for saying this. 

Because of this attitude, people add their own reasons "like accepting God's will" etc. But Guru Ji never said this. Guru Ji simply gave Hukam, and as Sikh we follow.

Trust me if you are worried about how this answer of might come off, it's a lot more impressive  than giving a reason like "we live in Gods image" . And because that is a made up answer there could easily be many objections to that. 

The real question and topic of this post is, Why do you feel the need to Justify Guru's Hukam of keeping hair by adding your own made up reasons.

For me it's more why do you have to be all controversial and rude with your new troll account?  

Nobody asked for your input on these topics. You need to do you Kid and if you got something to add here be respectful. Or be dismissed like the troll you are.
