health benefits of wearing kamarkassa

Recommended Posts

Nihangs wear kamarkassa all the time even while sleeping and they say that kamarkassa cures the diseases and problems of lakk(waist) and pait(stomach).

My maami had severe waist pain and she started wearing a kamarkassa tightly all the time and within a week, she got cured of the pain.

The kamarkasa has always been essential in the dress attire of Gursikhs as it is sign of being battle ready. Giani Gian Singh describes Singhs in his Panth Prakash of usually just wearing a Dumalla, Kachera and a kamarkasa, with sometimes blankets to cover them from the cold.


In the sakhi of Sukha Singh in Panth Prakash, Rattan Singh Bhangoo describes Bh Sukha Singh as such:

ਕਮਰ ਕੱਸਾ ਨਿਸ ਦਿਨ ਰਖੇ, ਲੜਣ ਘੁਲਨ ਕੋ ਤਯਾਰ ॥
His battlefield Kamarkasa [Weapons belt] was tied tightly day and night, Sukha Singh was always ready to battle and wrestle.

Those with the knowledge of Shastar-vidiya know how important the kamarkasa plays in drawing their weapon quickly. Whereas a gathra requires the effort from both hands to draw their weapon, the kamarkasa allows for the drawing of a weapon with one hand. When entering Guru Sahibs Darbar we should tie a Kamarkasa along with Hazooria.

Kavi Santokh Singh jee has said in Suraj Prakash that Kamarkasa is very essential as is part of Khalsa Bana. Kavi jee writes a great line in his work stating that Gursikhs of Sri Guru Gobind Singh jees time always wore Kamarkasa.

ਕਮਰ ਕਸਾ ਕਰਿ ਦੇਹੁ ਦਿਖਾਈ । ਹਮਰੀ ਖੁਸ਼ੀ ਹੋਇ ਅਧਿਕਾਈ ।
When showing yourself to me have your Kamar Kasa tied, in such a way I shall be extremely happy

And those that would not tie one Guru Sahib wouldn't take notice of them.

ਕਮਰ ਕਸੇ ਬਿਨ ਜੋ ਸਿਖ ਜਾਇ । ਤਿਸ ਪਰ ਰੁਖ ਨਹਿ ਕਰੈਂ ਕਦਾਇ ।।੧੦।।
Those Sikhs who went towards the Guru without wearing a Kamarkasa ,Guru Sahib would never look towards them.

This shows the very importance of Kamarkasa, it is really only the Nihang Dals that have kept this Rehat alive, all others have become weak in this Tatt-Rehat. We should strive to follow all Gur-Hukams, Guru Sahib jee Mehar Karan.

ਸਿੰਘ ਰੂਪ ਸ਼ਸਤ੍ਰਨ ਜੁਤਿ ਹੇਰੈਂ । ਹੋਤਿ ਗੁਰੂ ਕੀ ਖੁਸ਼ੀ ਬਡੇਰੈ ।
The appearance of a Singh/Singhni is complete with weapons (Hazooria & Kamarkasa aswell), when Guru Sahib jee see's this He becomes extremely happy.

after having kids the stomach muscles can fail to regain strength and natural position , in old cultures they used to tie the waist muscles to help recovery , especially in cases of total seperation of stomach muscles Diastasis Recti.

Many of the traditions we have strenthen and support proper function of body like cold bathing , daily keshi bath, tying dastar, amritvela...

When you support the lakh it increases self-confidence level and actual stamina during strenuous work

the benefits of dastar are cranial adjustment daily so fluid flows evenly and unhindered around meninges , insulation from solar UV , cold tempertures  meaning less blood drawn away from extemities to maintain core temp in head , less loss of temprature from body through head mean efficient use of body resources. r
Sarabloh actually increases the natural EMF field of the human so you can be more in tune to energy fluctuations around you, detecting creatures humans entering vicinity , better and deeper sadhana , able to feel nature around you, weather coming , better able to use EMF patterns of earth to navigate in wilderness/city. Its grosse effects i.e physical changes strengthens the body and prevents hair loss unlike heme iron it is not likely to poison the body so readily.

heme iron which comes from meat can quickly poison sareer causing heart attacks and liver tocicity , but, sarabloh is not the same effect as it is only absorbed slower in combination with finer particles minerals and vitamins from fruits and veg

Gurwinder Singh nangli in his book 'twarikh nihang singha' writes about the significance of kamarkassa. Bhai Chaupa Singh in his rehitnama writes that a sikh shud wear kamarkassa while sleeping and while doing paath from Guru Granth Sahib.

After the birth of my third child, I started wearing full bana with kamarkassa, nihang style. I felt very comfortable wearing it even at work. No one asked any questions or stared while I at work or out shopping! One day, at our local gurdwara I was approached by a middle aged woman from the Sangat. She looked curious but also very annoyed and asked me why was I wearing a man’s bana? Up until then, I didn’t know that I was wearing a gender based bana, as I always thought men and women were equal in sikhism and therefore wore same kind of clothing such as dastar, blue  bana with a kamarkassa and  white leggings. I honestly thought there was no difference.  I still wonder if this woman’s question was a legitimate one or was she just being awkward  or even plain racist. I guess I will never know the answer. Is blue bana and dastar, which is considered a standard Sikh uniform for most baptised Sikhs different for men and women or is it the same? In spite of all that’s happened I have never stopped wearing it, for I am a baptised Sikh!

Now you know how it feels when someone is racist towards you 🤣

    • Waheguru is closest than anything to all, irrespective of color, caste or creed. It is only that we people turn away our faces from Him with our haume/ahankaar and thus heavily incurr in bad karmas, but if referred to Him, He is within everybody with same love and mercy for all, waiting for us to knock at His door, in order to bless us with His true love and bakshish.
    • You must be naturally dumb then. 
    • Cheer up Kaur jee, no need to condem or torture yourself so much, for nobody either is a saint here, we all are weak and low, good you realized something, now keep going forward towards Waheguru, He is bakshanhaar, provided we do not commit those same mistakes.
    • The Anandpur Sahib Resolution : The Anandpur Sahib Resolution represents a pivitol point of Sikh history,  after many years of failed negotiations with the Govt, a list of minimum Sikh demands was drafted. It is interesting to note that it was drafted in 1973 and it was only after the Govt failed to accept these basic demands (many of which most States already enjoyed from 1947) that the Sikhs were forced into the Dharam Yudh Morcha (Agitation and protest).Read more: https://khalsaforce.in/anandpur-sahib-resolution/ Point by point demands found here: https://www.satp.org/satporgtp/countries/india/states/punjab/document/papers/anantpur_sahib_resolution.htm (Excerpted from The Encyclopedia of Sikhism, Vol. 1, 1995, ed., Harbans Singh, page 133-141) Anandpur Sahib Resolution, a frequently invoked document of modern Sikhism pronouncing its religious rule as well as its political goal. After having enjoyed power under chief ministers, Gurnam Singh and Parkash Singh Badal in the Punjab, newly demarcated in 1966, Sikhs are represented by their premier political party, the Shiromani Akali Dal, were able to capture only one seat at the elections to Indian parliament (1971) from among the 13 which were Punjab’s portion. In the Punjab Assembly elections which took place in March 1972 their tally was a mere 24 seats of a total of 117, and the Punjab Government passed in to the hands of the Congress Party, with Giani Zail Singh (later, President of India) as chief minister. This electoral debacle led to self introspection on the part of the Shiromani Akali Dal which appointed on 11 December, 1972, a sub-committee to reflect upon the situation and to proclaim afresh the programme and polices of the Dal. The 12 member committee consisted of Surjit Singh Barnala, Gurcharan Singh Tohra, Jiwan Singh Umranangal, Gurmeet Singh, Dr. Bhagat Singh, Balwant Singh, Gian Singh Rarewala, Amar Singh Ambalavi, Prem Singh Lalpura, Jaswinder Singh Brar, Bhag Singh, and Major General Gurbakhsh Singh of Badhani. The first meeting of the sub-committee took place at Amritsar. The venue then shifted to Chandigarh where the committee completed its task in ten successive meetings. Counsel was available to the sub-committee of the celebrated Sikh intellectual and thinker, Sirdar Kapur Singh, whose impress the draft emerging finally from its deliberations carried. The document was adopted unanimously by the working committee of the Shiromani Akali Dal at a meeting held at Anandpur Sahib, town sacred to Guru Gobind Singh, also reverenced by Sikhs as the birth place of the Khalsa. Since it was adopted at Anandpur Sahib (October 16-17, 1973) the resolution came to be known as the Anandpur Sahib Resolution. It was endorsed in the form of a succession of resolutions at the 18th All India Akali Conference of the Shiromani Akali Dal at Ludhiana on 28-29 October, 1978. An English version of the resolution is quoted below: Read more about its history:https://www.thesikhencyclopedia.com/the-modern-history-of-sikhs-1947-present/anandpur-sahib-resolution
    • You deleted the post, but withing one hour someone from the mod team deleted the whole thread from the forum. Did you request the mod team to delete the thread?  Why were the mod team so quick to delete a thread that was about grace?  You cannot delete threads.  You should have no problem posting the two separate writes ups you did in that thread.  Be honest, you don't want the sangat here to read what you wrote because in one of the post you asserted to being Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji.   Right after I asked you,  are you claiming to be Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji?  It could not have been 30 minutes later you deleted the write up on both post and within the hour the thread disappeared.    Since you have the two post saved.  Let the sangat see what you wrote.  Your post contained no top secret information or anything special but they did speak to how you see yourself.
